It is in the ongoing steady flow of decay 3:11 PM Thursday afternoon. I have had a normal day thus far. I did leave the house late this morning to get gas for our lawn mower and then to visit thrift stores. I visited only one thrift store this morning and bought these old used books for our library-
'The Pesthouse' a novel by Jim Crace
'Rough Magic: A Biography Of Sylvia Plath' by Paul Alaxander
'The View In Winter: Reflections On Old Age' by Ronald Blythe
'The Doctor's House' a novel by Ann Beattie
'Perdita: The Literary, Theatrical, Scandalous Life Of Mary Robinson' biography by Paula Byrne
'Reading Jackie: Her Autobiography In Books' by William Kuhn
'Finale' A Novel of the Reagan Year by Thomas Mallon
'Sarge: The Life and Times of Sargent Shriver' biography by Scott Stossel
After visiting a thrift store I drove to a gas station and got gas for our old lawn mower and also filled up my old Dodge van with gas (my van is going on 28 years old). I came home and have been reading 'Giles Goat-Boy' a novel by John Barth.
Carol got home this afternoon around 2 o'clock PM and is taking a nap. When she gets up from her nap I will mow our lawn. Life keeps decaying full speed.
Tomorrow is once again a Friday and I will gladly volunteer once again at our local library used books store, The Book Nook. Carol works Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. On May 19th will be Carol and I's 39th wedding anniversary. Where have all those years gone? We love only for a few days and then the Day of Judgment.
" But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,
 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.
 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." Rev. 20:5-15
