a slow train coming

It is in the death flow 12:16 PM Saturday afternoon. It is cold rainy day. I see hunks of ice falling from the sky this afternoon. These chunks of ice will crush cars this afternoon.

I am extremely tired this afternoon. I am tired due fighting this terrifying ice storm.

Carol and I both got up this morning around 7:20 AM. When we got up I made a pot of coffee and oatmeal for breakfast. After breakfast I messed with our main computer and then wrote in my paper diary.

Around 10:10 AM I left the house to pick up our coffee bean order and then to visit local thrift stores.

Not much else to report. This afternoon we are watching college football.

I did read this morning some of the book, 'Sanctification' by Michael Allen. Last night we watched taped television shows and went to bed around 10:25 PM.

It is 7:49 PM Saturday night. There is a college football game on the TV as I type these words.

Late this afternoon Carol and I left to do errands. While we were out we stopped at two thrift stores so I could look at their used books. I found these used books today to add to our library-

'Forgetfulness' a novel by Ward Just
