I am not sure what we will do today to make this day extra special. Yesterday Carol and I talked about driving up to Grand Haven and visiting Lake Michigan (Grand Haven Pier). I do not want to go to Grand Haven if it is not sunny. I rather stay home and wait it out.
Last night Carol and I had dinner with a couple named Tom and Mindy that we knew from a church we attended many years ago. Carol has stayed in contact with the woman Mindy of this couple. I have I think talked briefly to the fellow Tom three times in seventeen years since we have known this couple. The fellow Tom owns and runs a small machine shop out in the country on their farm. Tom and Mindy no longer farm. So we met this couple Tom and Mindy at a local Mexican restaurant at 6:05 PM for dinner last night. We were home from the restaurant around 8 o'clock PM. (I think at one time Tom and Mindy were pig farmers.)
Last night I felt wasted after eating rich heavy Mexican food and went to bed around 9:30 PM.
Yesterday evening I mainly read, "The World of Yesterday" A Memoir by Stefan Zweig. I also read yesterday, "The Denial of Death" by Ernest Becker.
Well I will close to go write in my paper diary and face existence. There is no way out. We are trapped.
