It was warmer still on Monday, but very windy. I wore my leather jacket into work, but that was the last time I used it.

I drove up to the eye doctors at lunch. They were pretty busy, so they just took my glasses and my phone number. They said they would call me after they tried to fix them.

Since I didn't have to wait, I had time to go to lunch. I ordered a cheese burger and fries and told Amanda the bad news about her old toy box.

She was disappointed and asked me if she could have the front panel (it's painted with a heart). I said sure.

I left the windows cracked when I got back to work. But less than a half hour later you could hear rumbles of thunder. So, I ran out through the sprinkles and closed the truck windows.

We had a brief, but intense thunderstorm. It was over in less than a half hour.

The eye doctor's office called around 3:30 p.m. my glasses were impossible to fix. I ordered a new frame. So, it will be about a week before I have my glasses back.

Back home after work, I treated the cat and changed clothes. I went out into the garage and dug the front panel of the toy box out of the scrap wood pile. It took me a while, but I got the broken screws out.

Sidebar: When I bought my kitchen table at Art Van, they gave me a wood preserving kit.

So, I cleaned it with the orange cleaner and then polished it with wood polish. It looked a lot better and I put it in the truck.

Back inside, I watched the news for a bit and then got started on my income tax (it's time). I worked until I got depressed (I always have to pay) and then I saved it and quit.

I warmed up the rest of the steak and beans. Along with more coleslaw, that was my dinner.

I watched a taped show, the start of a new series: "The Son" on AMC. I'm not sure if I like it or not.

Then I went to bed.
