This morning on my way to work I drove through Breckinridge Park. I saw this American Kestrel on a Reserved Parking sign.


After lunch today, I had to drive to an opposing counsel's office. I had left my trench coat there a couple of weeks ago during a deposition. The drive into Dallas was easy. Then finding parking near the office building seemed at first difficult.

On my way home from work, I stopped by the Goodwill in Plano. I found a computer case on sale for 1 dollar and 99 cents. When I got home, my wife and I went to Market Street to grab something to eat. I had a turkey plate. My wife ordered a hand-tossed salad. She ordered a "large" which turned out to mean "family size". We laughed at the sheer quantity of "Texas Toss Salad".

I had a chance to watch "White Christmas" tonight, but watched a Harry Potter instead. Tomorrow I plan to get lots of exercise, get chores done, address holiday cards, and get new eyeglasses.
