When: Late afternoon
Weather: Got up to high 50’s
When I left work at 2:00, the sun was out. I drove home the non-highway version. I wanted to feel comfortable avoiding the highway and the ramps tomorrow morning. The weather guys have engaged in substantial GroupSpeak. We have been convinced the precipitation will mix with the VERY cold temps. It is likely these fears that made my walk virtually void of any encounters. I passed one guy just after I left the house. The rest of the walk was sprinkled with a couple of teenage boys enjoying their day off of school. (MLK day). They were zipping around on one of those battery-powered skateboard things.
The only other thing of note was a comment from a fellow diner at the restaurant my daughter and I ate dinner at.
I told him what I was ordering for dinner. He had one comment, “There is only one problem with the chicken fried chicken…there is nothing wrong with it.” The way he said it told me he enjoyed the meal. His smile left no doubt he enjoyed his life, too.
i replied, “I think that is a flaw I can live with.”
