Finally Friday...

(With apologies to my poor, bored Brother Carl).

Sidebar: I only post this to mess with Jake. When he made the first website some 15 years ago, it was a present. But, he challenged me. He said most Bloggers quit before six months. Now, I realize most of you don't give a crap about what the weather was like, how much rain we got, what I did after work, or what I made for dinner. But, I still post

And, I think after 8,935 posts, I think I have proven him wrong!!! 

Anyway, on to Friday... It was overcast but still warm Friday morning.

I got a text from Amanda, letting me know she remembered to bring in a piece of her birthday cake for me. She was supposed to bring it in on Thursday, but her son was in a poetry contest at school and she forgot it in the excitement.

Sidebar: I saw the video of his recital but couldn't hear his words. :(

Anyway, I had a cup of chicken noodle soup and a grilled cheese sandwich. I couldn't finish it all, so I took the cake with me. When she hugged me (as she always does) I told her to drive careful. She and a couple of girl friends are celebrating her birthday up north (somewhere) in a "Bring back the 80's" celebration.

Sidebar: I really don't remember the 80's. I was working...

I had a little of the cake around 3:00 p.m. It was a three layer chocolate cake with pink frosting
and a smear of raspberry jam in the middle of each layer. It also had a ring of real raspberries around the top. Do I need to tell you it tasted fantastic (and I don't normally like cake)?

When I took my walk in the afternoon, the temperature had dropped dramatically.

We were supposed to get some nasty storms but nothing much showed up around here....
