the Aesopian device of narrating animal fables in order to import a moral

It is 4:24 PM Tuesday early evening or late afternoon here in West Michigan. It is 64 degrees on this cloudy sunny Autumn evening.

I had a long day and I am presently ready to cash in my chips. I got up this morning around 6:30 AM. I made a pot of coffee and ate a bowl of cereal for breakfast. I next messed with our main computer and wrote in my paper diary.

Carol got home from work around 8:21 AM and went to bed around 9 o'clock AM. I read some more of 'The Decameron' by Giovanni Boccaccio. I left the house around 10 o'clock AM to visit local thrift stores and to pick up a prescription. At thrift stores I found only three used books to add to our library-

'Lenin's Tomb: The Last Days Of The Soviet Empire' by David Remnick

'American Jennie: The Remarkable Life of Lady Randolph Churchill' biography by Anne Sebba

'Sevenneves' a novel by Neal Stephenson

I was home by 11 o'clock AM. While I had been gone Tim called and left a message for me to call him back. So I called Tim back and as I was ending our conversation the men drove up who were to install our new doors.

The doors are now installed and it looks nicer. I took Tim to a grocery store after the door installers left. So has gone this day thus far. Right now Carol is home in the kitchen talking to herself. I am falling asleep so I will close to feel drained.

The door looks great. Love the color. Your wife has good taste!

I am the one that chose the color of the door and the hardware. No telling what color my wife would have chosen if I had not stepped in.

That's very attractive. We were thinking about a bold color for the door, but somehow they never looked quite right with the aged unfinished siding. The storm door is very nice. We could stand something that we could leave open so the cats can see us when we sit on the front porch. We don't have the cold you have, though, to demand the extra insulation.

I like the new front doors because more light shines into the house. I like sitting in our dining room and looking out into our front yard watching birds. I do think would really enjoy sitting and looking out our new storm door-full glass-peace
