a frigid day at Yankee Stadium when Babe Ruth's breath looked like smoke from a volcano

It is 7:34 AM Saturday morning in the flow of existence. I am eating oatmeal for breakfast. When I was at the doctor's the other day they weighed me and I have lost 16 pounds since I cut out junk food from my diet. I want to lose 40 lbs. during the year 2015. I have to start walking every day a couple of miles if I want to lose more weight. I have tried eating oatmeal for breakfast, a sandwich and soup for lunch and something light for dinner. Also not eating anything after 6 o'clock PM in the evening. I drink a lot of water during the day and I eat apples. I think if I stick to this simple diet I should lose weight plus walking more each day. It is hard for me to go for walks because I hate the world. I feel freaked some days being out in the world. I feel more safe inside our home.

This morning I volunteer at the Herrick Public Library Used Books Store from 10 AM till 1 PM. When I get home if I get home I will watch maybe some college football.

Carol worked last night (my wife is a night nurse at a nearby community hospital), so she will be sleeping all day today.

Last night I read from a book titled, "What Ever Happened To Modernism?" by Gabriel Josipovici and watched some college football. I went to bed at 10 o'clock PM because I felt wasted.

Before making oatmeal for a morning meal I wrote in my paper diary and got out these books to look at or to look at me-

"The Second Epistle To The Corinthians" [The New International Commentary on the New Testament] by Paul Barnett

"Salvation Applied By The Spirit: Union with Christ" by Robert A. Peterson

I have been reading another commentary on Second Corinthians (NT) titled, "The Second Letter To The Corinthians" [The Pillar New Testament Commentary] by Mark A. Seifrid.

I have these books on my desk in my main study to read if I can focus-

Well I suppose I will close to get a fresh cup of coffee and read my books. I will leave for the book nook around 9:45 AM. Existence keeps speeding by! No way out.
