We got the old table 20 years ago in a used-furniture place in Venice, California. It did good service, but its chairs need replacing. So we got a new, simple round wooden table.
I watched some university-level American football on television, including the game in which the University of Texas was upset by the Maryland Terrapins. I like football season because I like hearing all the names of the little high schools and small universities in the less-attention-grabbing conferences.
In the later afternoon, I rode my bicycle on the Watters Branch trail. I covered 8 miles in a bit under 2 hours. When I paused to watch birds at a small pond, a man rode up on his bicycle and asked me if I was a birder. We traded stories about the herons and egrets at the pond. He mentioned two Green Herons that live at that pond. He showed me a great video he took of a Bobcat. He told me about good birding on the Mustang Creek Trail. I told him about the bird walks at Connemara and the Heard Natural Science Center. He quoted Thoreau un-ironically, which is, I am sad to say, more difficult for me to do. He introduced himself as Jeremy. Nice fellow. Perhaps I'll run into him again on the trails one day. On my return bicycle route, I saw the two Green Herons.
My wife and I went to Holy Frijoles in Plano tonight. We each ordered a different special. My wife's order, brisket soft tacos, tasted great. My special was good also. We stopped by PetSmart for dog food, a dog treat from a pet bakery and pill pockets.
Now we are watching an Inspector Lynley mystery.
