Patient, Good People

Thursday the Arctic chill persisted in the early morning, but gave way to merely normally chilly. On today, Friday, the weather is to be normal January weather which would be cool but now sounds balmy.

I went to the Salvation Army in Garland last night for the Dallas Volunteer Attorney Program legal cllnic. I am always struck by how polite and helpful almost all of the clients are during these meetings. In some cases, folks wait for a couple of hours to see a lawyer. In many cases, their legal needs include matters that cause stress. The clinic usually is just one step on the path to finding a volunteer to handle their matter. Yet the people with whom I meet patiently and helpfully explain the nuances of their situations, so that I can get the facts of their matter into the intake sheets and provide a little legal advice when I have advice to give.

Yesterday I ate Kix cereal and skim milk for breakfast, roasted chickcen, green beans and a roll for dinner, and buffet pizza (pepperoni and spinach alfredo) for dinner, along with raw broccoli and raw carrots. I like salad bars much better ever since I skip the lettuce and take only the finger foods. I suppose I must have a crudite' soul.

I saw my first Ruby-Crowned Kinglet of the year at Bradfield Park. Saturday the weather is supposed to  be warm again. I hope to take Beatrice for a walk.
