I got up this morning around 6 o'clock AM. I got up because I was having weird dreams. I got up and decided to go back to bed down here in the lower level where it is dark and damp. Well our basement opens up to our backyard. Also there are windows down here where one can look out into our backyard. I can see our wildflower garden from one of the basement windows. So here I sit writing in my blogs wondering if I will be able to stay awake.
When I got up this morning I left around 8 o'clock AM to get my blood sucked out of me. When I got home from giving blood I ate breakfast and then my wife and I took Rudy for a walk at Window On The Waterfront city park. It started raining as we started walking so I did not take any photos. When we got home we did some stuff and then left again to do errands and visit thrift stores. I only found these used books today visiting several thrift stores.
"American Pastoral" a novel by Philip Roth
"Neuromancer" a novel by William Gibson

I read from these two books today when not busy doing something else.

Last night my wife and I watched a professional football game and went to bed around 10:30 PM. Now it is another day. A cold damp gray day, early Autumn weather here in West Michigan.
Well I am falling asleep so I will close to face it. No way of escape.
