And so it goes . . .
One of my goals for this Summer is to reread some Vonnegut. Breakfast of Champions andCat's Cradle are on my list.
Got the oil in the car changed this AM. 12,000 miles. The Caliber seems to be a very nice car. Was incredible in the snow this year. Since the Dodge dealer is near Costco jumped in there and picked up some Ribeyes for dinner. Will have one of those with a baked Larry for dinner while watching the game.
Got the BlackBoard
Wow, talk about a crazy couple of weeks. I will have to keep this short because I have to run again in another half hour or less. The Whitecaps treated the season ticket holders to a Tiger game in Chicago last night. Yeah, I witnessed Bonderman's loss, but we were able to listen to the first game win on the way to Chicago--scrambling to find the game on various radio stations along the way. we were rather frustrated when it was tied 4-4, bases loaded and Brandon Inge at the plate--and lost that

Ahhh. First official day of vacation. Had ot get up at 4 to take Lisa to the airport, then wait around for the furnace guy to check the system for Summer. He decided we need a new thermostat. Went down to the BORG and got one and replaced it. Cleaned my office. Took a nap. Saw much of the game but fell asleep for the last 3 innings.
Nice day. I have a few paper drafts to go over but those are being held until this evening. Doing a steak stir-fry for dinner wiht rice.

Detroit Tigers Baseball has been my enduring friend.
Back in early childhood, I first saw how Tigers baseball lived in my grandfather's heart. My King would enter the humble castle that was his living room, and sit down in front of the TV. I would keep Grandpa company, along with his spitoon, and sometimes his can of Black Label beer. I began to learn the game, as Mr. Kell gave what seemed like a never-ending introduction
Big Tigers game today and I should get to see most of it.
Lisa leaves for ten days early tomorrow so I will be on my own. Good as much to be done to get ready for Summer session.
I will be doin' much Q-in' this week!
