Lee's first sermon

After rising early for breakfast, I fell back asleep. I needed the rest.  I got up again at 8:30 a.m.

I lost a pound at Weight Watchers. The garden show expert on the radio discussed possible issues with a caller's tree.

At the Way service at church, the new format began. A seminary student gave the sermon. He was a second-year student named Lee. He had really interesting stories of his days in the Navy and his efforts to find his way as a social worker and musician. His speaking style was based a bit too much on reading and he spoke a bit quickly.  But he is a promising speaker.  Watching him reaffirmed for me the importance of speaking up and speaking slowly when speaking in public.

For lunch, we went to the House Cafe. We had never been there before. It was very nice. I had pork chops.

In the early afternoon, I put on my portable radio headphones. I listened to the football game as I walked the Watters Branch trail. I had wanted to rely less on televised sports and more on the radio. This kept me from hanging around the house watching the television all afternoon. On my walk, I saw  Red-tailed Hawk and a Downy Woodpecker.

I went in the late afternoon to Classic Cuts in Plano for a haircut. My hair stylist was a really nice woman. She told me she hoped to take her 2-year-old son to the State Fair. I seem to be a on a track in which I get a haircut every sixty days, but I should get on a schedule for every six weeks. She used the number 4 shears.

I drove to Story Park, where the little memorial flower garden had lots of butterflies on lots of flowers. I got good pictures of Pipevine Swallowtails and Gulf Fritillaries.

In the evening, we watched NCIS: Los angeles
