He usually bestows some secret touches of love

It is in the death flow 1:04 PM Wednesday afternoon. It is another cold gray rainy day here in West Michigan.

I got up this morning around 6:15 AM. I got up ate a bowl of cereal while messing with our main computer. (I need to find another word for messing.). After playing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and read till my wife got home from work. Carol got home from work around 9:10 AM this morning. She went to bed soon after coming home from work. I left the house around 10:40 AM to visit thrift stores north of town and found these used books to ADD to our library-
