I bought a fitbit on your recommendation last week, and I really like it. I set a basic goal of 10k steps a day, and today I walked 14,000. When my shoulders feel better, I think I can easily do 20k, but even the motion from walking causes fits of agony.
Went to the farm today to see Harry and Chatman and to drop off some egg cartons, and on the way home, had to stop for a while for some feathered friends:
They just meandered about in the middle of the road for a while, and we all patiently sat there waiting for them to cross. By the time they finally finished doing whatever it was they were doing in the middle of the road, there were about eight cars waiting.
Speaking of turkeys, I hope no patriots come to my little town, because the college has put up these signs telling people that there are no weapons allowed on campus as per state law. And since the town and the campus are inextricably combined, it basically means there are very few places for gun nuts to run around open carrying or whatever the hell it is they want to do:
And you know what? Everyone around here has rifles and pistols because this is farm country, and no one I know, even on the right side of the aisle politically, has any problems with it whatsoever. Sure, they all have guns, but they are for home defense, shooting groundhogs and other vermin, etc. In other words, they’re sane people in which guns are part of the cultural tradition but remain a tool, and not a penis extension or political statement.
I’m off to bed, as 7 am rolls around pretty soon. The only thing I really miss about drinking is the ability to remain in bed until 10-11 am on the weekend.
