Left the the house this morning before 6. Worked on the boat until 6:30pm. On a date in Cracker Barrel. Very tired. Going to bed very shortly.

Was going to wish my niece, Pili, a happy birthday but it is tomorrow so I won’t.

The news is very depressing. The Middle East seems to be imploding and exploding. Afghanistan is still at war and parts of Africa are annihilating themselves.

But there is good news happening as well: gold bar found in Salvation Army red kettle; Meals on wheels now feeding pets as well; and more.
