Friday I ate my Kix cereal, For the first time in a few days, I could go to work in business casual rather than in a suit. I carried a suit in my car just in case. I lunched on Church's fried chicken, fries and 1/4 of the provided biscuit. After work, I walked in Crowley Park in Richardson. My wife had dinner out with the two charming young women who used to alternate when we needed someone to stay with Beatrice when we traveled. I went to El Pollo Loco for dinner, but it was too crowded. So I went to a Taco Bell, where my Weight Watchers app told me I could afford to have two soft chicken tacos and a beef supreme burrito.

When I arrived home, my wife and our two friends and I talked about this and that and things other than cabbages and kings.

I woke up at 3:30 a.m. and looked outside to see if I could see the end of the harvest moon eclipse. But all I saw a a full moon, which was not orange.

At 6:40, I drove the hour to Lake Ray Roberts State Park's Johnson Branch. I went on the Flying Feathered Friends bird walk with Ranger Danielle, and a fellow and his charming 7-year-old child. The walk lasted 90 minutes. It was great fun. we saw Ospreys migrating through, a Yellow Warbler, and the Inca Dove, who is usually a more western bird.

When I got back home, my wife and I headed to Elke's in Allen, where I had a cup of chicken tortilla Hatch chili soup, a turkey sandwich and a fruit cup (said cup being dominated by watermelon).

I drove down to my nephew's store in Plano, where my brother and I had a nice chat. I gave him the gift bagged scarf we had gotten for my sister-in-law's birthday during our trip to Tulsa. I gave my brother a Hot Wheels car--a Cadillac.

I walked in Bob Woodruff Park and then in Brockdale Park. My wife and I dined at the Mexican Restaurant San Miguel. I had two cheese enchiladas, salad and bean soup.

My wife fell asleep before we could watch our rented movie. I am watching sports and about to head to sleep myself.
