After my walk, I headed home and took Beatrice for walk around Glendover Pond. I saw additional birds during this walk. I headed to KFC for lunch, where I had grilled chicken breast and wing, half a biscuit, and green beans. I stopped by little Green Park near my house, where I saw lots of Eastern Bluebirds, Ruby-Crowned Kinglets, Northern Mockingbirds and Northern Cardinals.
I drove down to MicroCenter in Richardson. I have a small form factor desktop computer I want to connect to my television. A capable fellow who assisted me got me nearly everything I needed. I watched a sports contest in which the team from my university alma mater scored an upset over a team from Florida.
My wife ate a huge lunch out with friends at the burger place Snuffer's, so I went to Dickey's BBQ myself for dinner. I ate a turkey breast plate, green beans, corn on the cob and half a roll. I stoppped by Radio Shack, where I got one wire that I did not get from MicroCenter.
We watched one of the episodes of "Inspector Lynley Mysteries".
I believe that among all the walks I went on Saturday, I saw about two thirds as many birds as I would have on the Connemara walk. I got in a lot more steps than I would have on a more slow-moving,bird-filled organized walk, though. I got 15,000 in which is fine.
Sunday morning I had a bowl of Special K Vanilla Almond Cereal and skim milk. I walked on the Chisholm Trail near Rainier Drive. At that part of the trail, Rowlett Creek makes a small lake. I hoped to see migrating ducks there. I saw instead a variety of small songbirds.
At Weight Watchers I was up two-tenths of a pound, which was fine with me. I walked in Shawnee Park in Plano, where I admired a Pied-Billed Grebe.
I went to church at First UMC. The sermon dealt with focusing on the simple and non-material rather than upon material acquisition. Today was communion Sunday, the only day of the month on which I eat a bite of King's Hawaiian bread dipped in grape juice.
I ate a Subway turkey sandwich on whole wheat. After lunch, I took Beatrice for a walk in the park. Two delightful young children came up and said 'hello' to her. Now I am watching sports and television and researching installing the Debian operating system on an ARM tablet.
