by the shore

I started a little late this morning.  I did not get to Car Care Central until 8:10 a.m.  Fortunately, my non-functioning headlight lamp proved an easy fix. I was on the road again a bit after 9 a.m., and at work by 9:35.  The garage treated me well--the bill came to 22 dollars, which is about what I think it should be.

I had a 12:00 lunch meeting in Rockwall. I ate at the Oar House, a very good Italian place. I like that part of Rockwall right by Lake Ray Hubbard. Someday I'd like to take a weekend to stay in the Hilton hotel by the lakeshore. My ideal would be to have a kayak or a little boat.  Within walking distance are some good restaurants and a movie theater.

After work, I stopped at Bob Woodruff Park. I got a nice walk in, though I did not see a lot in the way of wildlife. Things got pretty cold again this week, at least cold by our standards. Last night a little rain fell, causing some concern about potential icy weather. But it worked out fine. We still have not gotten a proper snowfall this year. We usually get a few inches a year, though sometimes those inches come in late Winter.

Now I am watching cheetahs on PBS.
