physical day

I ate my oatmeal early this morning, as I labored under a post-6-a.m. doctor's moratorium upon eating. I worked until 12:30 p.m. Then I headed to the southern part of Dallas. I took a business call at 1 p.m. in a parking garage. Then I walked to my doctor's office for a 2 p.m. appointment. I like my doctor, who has helped me for roughly a decade and a half. We are both older now, but of the two of us, only I look much older. The appointment went well, though a routine physical is always a mystery until the labs come back. My doctor decreed that I should not lose more weight.

As the tech drew my blood, I looked out the window. I saw a small raptor feeding on another bird. I was spared seeing the second bird, but saw a few white feathers. I pointed it out to the technician who, when we were finished with my blood draw, went to point it out to a co-worker. Birds are everywhere, but an eye to see them is not always everywhere.

On my way back to work I got two soft tacos at Casa Taco or Taco Casa, I am never sure of the name. At day's end I stopped by Salmon Park. I saw dozens and dozens of blackbirds. I could not see their red-wings, but I know they had them.

My wife had a meeting tonight. I got chicken at Chicken Express, along with a roll and corn-on-the-cob. I watched "Supergirl", and am now watching an episode of "Foyle's War".
