It is in the ongoing death flow 2:44 PM Friday afternoon. I am really not in the mood to write, because I am extremely tired and stressed out. But I will write something because it is what I do each day.

I have had thus far a normal day. I got up this morning around 7:15 AM. When I got up I found my wife straightening up a closet wherein we store food items and an assortment of crap. I got myself a glass of apple cider and messed with our main computer for awhile. After messing with our main computer I fixed for Carol and I a pot of oatmeal for breakfast. After breakfast I talked to Carol and then left around 9:35 AM to volunteer at the local library used bookstore The Book Nook for three hours.

The Book Nook was not super busy, just normal. While at the Book Nook when not helping people with their purchases I read from a book titled, 'American Moderns: Bohemian New York And The Creation Of A New Century' by Christine Stansell. I brought home a pile of used books from the Book Nook to add to our library.

Carol is presently sleeping, because she works tonight and then is off for a couple of days.

This evening I am going with our oldest son and a neighbor fellow to see in concert the rock band Russian Circles in concert.

Well not much else to write about. I am falling asleep so I will close to feel wasted.

Caleb our oldest son called earlier to tell me they will be by to pick me up around 7:30 PM. We are driving to Grand Rapids to see in concert the heavy rock band Russian Circles.

I am have been sitting in our dining room drinking tea and falling asleep. I need to wake-up! I am always fighting to stay awake. I understand now why old men are always dozing someplace. We like falling asleep because existence is so exhausting. I have been looking at this evening one of the used books I bought home today from the Book Nook, 'Maigret And The Pickpocket' by Simenon. Well I will close to feel dead tired. Where is the fire of youth? Where is the zeal for life? I need to get moving!

Tomorrow I will watch college football and read my books. Well I will close to feel wasted as usual. Do not know what time I will get to bed tonight. I hope to be home by 11:30 PM tonight. I am praying for a safe journey this evening to Grand Rapids. I am not ready to depart this life just yet. There is work to be done.
