abstract butterfly

folded,not on a hanger

I picked up my dress shirts today. I like that my dress shirts come folded. I began to get shirts folded rather than on hangers when I traveled all the time. Folded shirts turn out to be easy to pack. Though I travel less for work than the old days of weekly or biweekly flights, I still get the shirts folded in stacks in those paper sacks.I like that the neighborhood dry cleaners spares me drama. The folks there get my shirts done in good order each time. Today I detected something non-work-related that will prove a minor irritation, but an irritation. Work proved productive.

I breakfasted on Kix cereal and skim milk. I ate soft chicken tacos for lunch. I dined on a Subway turkey sandwich and baked chips.

Now we are watching the first two hours of "Victoria" and thinking about the end of one era and the beginning of the unfortunate Trump era.

I walked in Timber Narrows Park and in Bradfield Park today. I liked best the Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker I saw.
