the intellectual life of the Augustan's

It is 2 o'clock PM Wednesday afternoon in the death flow. It is a gray day. It is suppose to storm today. We need warm rainy days here in West Michigan.

Carol and I both got up this morning around 6:30 AM. I made a fresh pot of coffee and a pot of oatmeal for breakfast. I ate my oatmeal messing with our main computer. I down loaded this morning a video I made last night while Carol was gone for church meeting.

After breakfast I wrote in my paper diary and I then left the house around 10 o'clock AM to visit local thrift stores in search of used books to add to our library. I found these used books today at thrift stores-
