It is 2:15 PM Friday afternoon here in West Michigan. It is a hot hazy day. We shut the house up this afternoon and turned on the central air system to cool everything down. I like a cool dark cave.
I volunteered at the Herrick District Public Library used books store today from 10 AM till 1 PM. The store was slow so I wandered the store looking at the used books and read from a book titled, 'Invention of Science: A New History of the Scientific Revolution' by David Wootton. I brought home from the Book Nook these used items for our library today-

When I got home from the Book Nook I ate lunch. I next drove over to Bible's For Mexico Thrift Store to let loose a chipmunk I had trapped today. When I trap a chipmunk I drive over to Bible's For Mexico Thrift Store and let them loose in back of the store. In the back of Bible's For Mexico Thrift Store are woods that leads into a city park. Thus far I have trapped seven chipmunks.
