This morning I went to a synagogue in Plano, as a friend of mine had his bar mitzvah today. The folks at the synagogue were very friendly, and the service was lovely. After the service, we all dined on great Israeli food made by the father of the celebrant.

In the afternoon, my wife and I went to the Heard Natural Science Center and took a nice nature walk. We saw coots, ducks, turtles, cardinals, very vocal red-winged blackbirds, and redbud trees in bloom.

Then we came home and ate sandwiches, and settled in for the evening.
