It is in the ongoing death flow 4:16 PM Tuesday late afternoon. Right now the sun is shining which is nice. Most of the day it has been foggy and gray.

It has been a long day. Carol and I went grocery shopping this morning and then drove down to South Haven for lunch and to visit Black River Books.

While we were out doing stuff we also visited thrift stores. I bought these used books today for our library.

I would like to write more but I am wasted! I can't take running around all day. I am into quiet days doing nothing but reading my books and writing in my paper diary. I will close to brush my teeth and put my diary away for the day. Existence keeps decaying full speed!

I should mention while we were out running around we took a bird feeder to Carol's elderly friend Pam in Douglas Michigan. We visited with Pam for awhile and drove back to Holland Michigan.
