bus ride to the library

Thursday night I spent time on the phone with a healthful representative of Ting.com. My hotspot stopped working, showing both "no battery" and "SIM card" issues. I have only had the hotspot for a little less than 2 years, so I hope I can get it revived. But that first call, while helpful and not annoying, did not solve the issue.

Friday I caught the 6 a.m. Vonlane bus to Austin, a wise way of travel that nonetheless involved getting up at 4 a.m. When we arrived in Austin, I walked over to the new central library. The tables there, suitably wired for laptops, proved ideal for me to get a bit of work done prior to my meeting. I then walked over to my 11 a.m. meeting.  This lasted, including a break for lunch at that downtown place whose name escapes me that serves giant pork chops, until 3:30. Then I went back to the iibrary and got some more work done. In the early evening, I walked back to the Hyatt Regency hotel just across Lady Bird Lake, where the return bus was to pick me up.

I spoke by telephone with my former law partner, who retired last year. He's a really good fellow I also spoke with my sister, who has been doing things helpful to our family. I caught my 8 p..m bus back to Dallas. That bus ride was uneventful,though it was delayed by a highway accident. I read things of little importance that were posted on the internet as we rode.

This fine Saturday morning I wrote out checks and addressed envelopes to pay 2 family business bills. Then I must take Beatrice to an 8 a.m. appointment with her medical professional.
