Finally Friday

It was another nice day (hot, but the wind helped).

I went to Time Out for lunch and got the mushroom and Swiss burger. I added onion rings to that and had a delicious, greasy lunch!

The afternoon dragged a little.

It was Riley's last day at Spacely Sprockets. He didn't want to do the now familiar lunch (thank God), so a few people are meeting him after work at a craft beer bar in Detroit. I had to pass, so I gave him a goodbye hug. I didn't know Courtney was taking pictures and now it's plastered on Facebook. Sigh...

Sidebar: I appreciate his choice. In the old days, we used to go to Snooker's after work for these goodbye events. It was fun, people ordered plates of appetizers, played some pool and, most importantly, mingled. It was a party!!! This sitting in a chair at a long table for a lunch and only talking with your nearest neighbors sucks by comparison.

When I got home after work, I treated the cat (of course) and changed clothes. It was payday, so I spent some time on the computer dealing with bills and check balances.

When I got done with that, I did the grocery list and the ToDo list. Then, when I finished, I began to download Windows 10. This took over an hour!

Sidebar: I have waited, not wanting to get a buggy, new operating system. But, its still free and after July 29, it will cost me $199.00. I figured they have patched any of the original problems, so I went for it.

I made another half-sandwich of smoked turkey and ate the rest of the beans for dinner.

I read until bedtime.

    True. If one doesn't shock the system occasionally then how can one expect the body to appreciate vegetables?
