Shall we say hello to Friday, the last of my 4 consecutive days off? Starting tomorrow, I'll be working for 3 days. No problem. I honestly don't mind this part-time gig. As I've said before, these meager hours a week allow me to keep banking my Social Security checks. Besides, that giant home improvement retailer gave me a 90 cent per hour pay increase that started on 8/1.
I called my neighbor's wife yesterday to give her my condolences, as well as find out what happened. Mike evidently woke up from a nap, was all sweaty and had some chest pain. She called the ambulance, however, by the time they got him to the hospital it was too late. Right now, she is staying with her daughter and son-in-law down in Maryland. They'll be coming up next Friday to start cleaning out the house. That will take a while. Both she and Mike were accumulators.\
Much is on the agenda today, including an olive oil spice cake. We should all have a little spice in our lives!
I hung my new clock yesterday morning. At present, it is losing time, about 5 minutes every 24 hours. Instructions are to wait between 2 and 3 days before making any adjustments. The old clock chimed every half hour, this clock chimes every 15 minutes, though it's not nearly as loud as its predecessor.
