3. Evening purchase: bananas and herb-flavored crackers.

4. March 2017 local county bird species count: 48

5. Bluebook estimated value of my automobile: 25% of what I paid for it 5 years ago.

6. Miles on my car: 103,000+

8. Meals: toasted oats and skim milk, turkey sandwich and baked potato chips, cube steak, pork loin and a sweet potato.
