balloon half full/balloon half empty

Thursday evening I walked in Oak Point Park in Plano. The bicycle trails in the park expanded their reach since the last time I visited there. I watched juvenile Scissor-Tailed Flycatchers and Eastern Bluebirds. A half-inflated hot air balloon received attention from its attendants.

The walk capped a day of Corn Pops and three slices of CiCi's sausage pizza, but served as the prelude to leftover cube steak and roast asparagus. I woke this morning, listened to and reviewed three or four songs on ccMixter.org, and headed to work. At lunch I drove into Richardson for a quick business matter. I had egg whites, fruit and turkey bacon at Denny's. I glanced at MicroCenter, but, as ever, I preferred their print sales catalog to the physical things.

I worked hard tonight, but only until 6:30 p.m. Then I walked in Breckinridge Park. The day proved rainy and cool today, a bit unseasonal. I ate chicken and green beans at Golden Chick. At home, I watched sports, listened to an audio interview of war hero Audie Murphy and solved a knotty little work question to my satisfaction.
Tomorrow I want to get out in nature.

I am pleased, by the way, with my new Ting.com hotspot, which replaces a more expensive and less flexible Verizon aircard. I used it during a power outage a week or two ago, and its utility became evident, without the data use being too great.

I think that fellow has a good career when he gets to be Dr. Watson, Arthur Dent and Bilbo Baggins.
