Free Tibet

It is 8:37 AM Saturday morning in the flow. It is a cold gray late Spring day here in West Michigan. The weather is just ugly this morning. Tomorrow it is suppose to be sunny, but not warm though. We are suppose to get in the 80's this coming Wednesday.

This morning I volunteer at the Herrick Public Library used bookstore from 10 AM till 1 PM. After volunteering at the book nook Carol and I are going to visit another library used bookstore in Douglas.

This morning Carol and I got up around 7 o'clock AM. I made a pot of coffee and messed with our main computer. Carol made a pot of oatmeal for breakfast. Before eating my oatmeal I wrote in my paper diary.

Yesterday late afternoon I did mow our lawn, which was a chore. Before mowing the lawn I went to the bank and a thrift store. At this thrift store I found one used book to add to our library. I found this used book, "Freedom In Exile: The Autobiography Of The Dalai Lama".

During the evening hours my wife and I watched some television. I was extremely tired last night and went to bed early. Carol came to bed soon after I did.

Well I suppose I will close to get ready to meet this day. There is no way of escape. Carol skyped Bethany and Louisa Mae yesterday evening. Louisa Mae is growing up fast.

It is 4:48 PM Saturday late afternoon. The sun came out today, which was nice. I love sunlight. I love the Light. It has been a extremely long day for us. I am seeking to keep my brain functioning this evening. I will seek to write out some of what took place today in my ordinary existence.

I left for the Herrick Public Library used bookstore to volunteer around 9:45 AM this morning. The library book nook was not busy today. When not helping people with their materials I read "Hitch-22" A Memoir by Christopher Hitchens. I brought home these used books from the book nook to add to our library today.

When I got home from the library book nook we soon left for Douglas to visit their library used bookstore. I found at the Well Read Used Bookstore these used books.
