six months in the Sandwich Islands

It is in the blood flow 1:29 PM Monday afternoon. The sky has turned gray this afternoon.

I did find the courage to leave my hermit hut this morning. I got coffee beans and then took Rudy for a walk at Kollen Park. On the way home I stopped at our Credit Union to get money and then visited two thrift stores. I found these used books this morning to throw on the heap-

"Washington" a memoir by Meg Greenfield (Meg Greenfield wrote this book in secrecy at the end of her life.)

"Six Months in the Sandwich Islands" a Victorian travel book by Isabella L. Bird (First printed in 1881 and reprinted many times since. I collect travel books.)

"Franklin & Lucy: President Roosevelt, Mrs. Rutherfurd, and the Other Remarkable Women in His Life" biography by Joseph E. Persico (I bought this biography to ADD to my President Franklin Roosevelt Collection.)

When I got home I ate lunch, messed with our main computer and wrote in my paper diary. I have been reading this afternoon "Laura Worholic or, The Sexual Intellectual" by Alexander Theroux.

Before I left the house this morning I called Carol to see how her night went taking care of little Josie our granddaughter.

Well, not much else to report so I will close to drift aimlessly in the flow of divine Providence.
