Well I should write something before this day goes down in flames. It is cold snowy Friday evening here in West Michigan. It has been a long cold day of me feeling out of it. This morning before heading off to the library used bookstore the Book Nook I took a chill pill since I was feeling anxious. These chill pills slow me down and make me sleepy. So I have been a slow cold sleepy fog all day.

I got up this morning around 7:05 AM because my wife was getting ready to go downtown to have breakfast with a friend. So I got up and had breakfast. I ate my cereal messing with our main computer and after messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary. I do not remember if I read anything this morning. I think I basically sat around the house till I left for the library to volunteer at the Book Nook.

While at the Book Nook I looked through old issues of The Rolling Stone magazine and read a little from a book titled, 'Schlesinger: The Imperial Historian' biography by Richard Aldous. I brought home from the Book Nook these used books to add to our library today-

'Essex Serpent' a novel by Sarah Perry

'Minerva And The Muse: A Life Of Margaret Fuller' biography by Joan Von Mehren

'The Years Of Lyndon Johnson-Master Of The Senate' Book Three by Robert A. Caro

'The Years Of Lyndon Johnson-The Passage Of Power' Book Four by Robert A. Caro

When I got home from the Book Nook I found my wife working on her Woman's Bible Study on the Prayers of the Apostle Paul. In the mail this afternoon I received two new books-

'H(A)PPY' a novel by Nicol(a) B(a)rker

'Building The Great Society: Inside Lyndon Johnson's White House' by Joshua Zeitz

Carol went to bed soon after I got home from the library, because she works tonight (also Saturday and Sunday nights). I read and dozed this afternoon and evening hours. Another day has gone by. I suppose I will close.

Last night we met for dinner Carol's younger brother Cal and his wife Beth. When we got home we had face time on Carol's cell phone with our son Josiah and his wife Hannah and their baby Marika Rose. We are expecting anytime for our daughter-in-law Emily to go into labor with Cora Leigh. Emily is the wife of our oldest son Caleb, they have a little four old girl Josie Joy. Carol and I find having six grandchildren a blessing.

"[1] It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High:
[2] To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,
[3] Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound.
[4] For thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands.
[5] O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep.
[6] A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this.
[7] When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever:
[8] But thou, LORD, art most high for evermore.
[9] For, lo, thine enemies, O LORD, for, lo, thine enemies shall perish; all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.
[10] But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.
[11] Mine eye also shall see my desire on mine enemies, and mine ears shall hear my desire of the wicked that rise up against me.
[12] The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
[13] Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God.
[14] They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing;
[15] To shew that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him
." Psalm 92
