chicken and bane

The first part of this week proved very busy. I must travel this weekend. The weather has turned pleasant, though rain is predicted for Saturday. A group of local physicians were convicted yesterday in an alleged quid pro quo arrangement to steer business to a hospital in return for advertising dollars.  Without getting into details of this trial, with which I am not fully conversant, I note to myself that so many times thing like this arise because somone had a "great idea"  that was more than a little "too cute"

I need to do some paperwork tonight. Perhaps I can still watch "The Orville", if it is a new episode.  I spoke with my brother and with my sister yesterday. My favorite fruit is the banana.

Monday I walked in Breckinridge Park. Tuesday i went to lunch with a colleague, and had a bowl of chicken soup at Gloria's. Wednesday I had a dental appointment at 7:30 a.m. I was on time to get there, despite my alarm failing to sound, when I took a wrong turn on the freeway.  By coincidence, my wife had an appointment later that day and was also a bit behind due to a mistake in the appointment time. Our family was dental bane yesterday, I suppose.

The Bewick Spring

Today the day turned a bit more chilly rather than warmer. I woke at 3 a.m. and played the retro space game Astro Avengers II. Though on paper I am opposed to shooter games, even fantasy violence shooters, I find the game a bit relaxing.

I made it to work in good order today. I learned new things about things I knew a bit about already.  I made plans with my sister and brother for the weekend.

The Bewick's Wren continues trilling its unique song in our backyard. I think of it as a "western bird", more western than our "eastern"  Carolina Wren.]

We watched tonight's episode of "The Orville".  Now we are watching "Silent Witness"
