Now 40F as of 1:15 PM here in Gresham. Overcast with light rain. Wind south at 10 mph. Humidity 88%.

A balmy 50F here in Gresham as of 12 45 PM. Perfect January weather! Calm and sun shining through clouds. Humidity 72%.

Someone gave Kim a universal battery charger, because her phone doesn't seem to be charging the battery. People at a library were she went couldn't make it work, and told her it was no good. But I looked at it briefly, and figured out how it worked, and charged her battery. Sometimes it takes a brain!

A warmer 44F as of 1:00 PM today, after a week of much colder east wind. Wind now south at 17 mph. Humidity 73%. Scattered showers.

I caught a cold last week, and with all the days of cold wind, I thought it best to just stay home and take care of myself. I did have lunch with Kim yesterday. She brought be some fruit.

Well, they say the government has been shut down! Does that mean it no longer exists? Does it mean I no longer have to obey its laws? That would be nice!

I will be incommunicado for a few days after today. Library will close for both Christmas and Christmas Eve (Those librarians love to take every holiday off they can get away with!). And tomorrow I will be celebrating my birthday: the big 7 0 !

Isn't that what you've been praying for all this time?


Sorry you got a cold.I refused a flu shot.I felt my resistance was down.As you know I have microbes the super life on Earth. AA stay warm drink tea,and C Chicken soup with salty crackers.



Been doing all that except the soup. Good thing you mentioned it. I will check for chicken soup when I stop at Discounts Plus on the way home.

Being further north, the sun doesn't come here until after 8 AM. I usually sleep till then, then go out check the temperature, check the meter to see how much electricity I have used, and feed the squirrels.

Dry morning, but now starting to rain. Got my grocery shopping done early. They tried to overcharge me as usual, but I force the clerk to go back over every item till at least identified most of the overcharge. Shopping Safeway's on sale items is a good deal if can get them to honor their offers, which is not always easy. I can only imagine how much they are gouging people who just let them ring up whatever they like!

Now a balmy 48F as of 1 PM here in Gresham. Starting to rain. Calm. Humidity 74%.

Saw the first sign of spring, daffodils poking up through the ground by an old church I walk by on the way here.

A rare peaceful day here January. Sun shining through clouds. Rain has stopped. Wind down to 2 mph. Temp a compfy 49F as of 12:30 PM here in Gresham.

My cold symptoms have nearly disappeared after two nights of eating that chicken soup that you prescribed, Bert!

The library has finally received boxes of Income Tax forms and instructions, and put them out. T'is the season!
