Post 2324 - Wednesday

Short and sweet.  Just like me.

It is past 9:30.  I should be turning in soon.  Tomorrow will be a long day.

I had my doctor's appointment this morning.  My knee is nearly 100% better.  Just two days ago, it was very difficult for me to walk, and forget about taking the stairs.  Now I can take the stairs with little or no difficulty.  The doctor still gave me a prescription for ibuprofen, not the wussy over the counter stuff.  This is apparently much more powerful.  I will let you know. 

After work, I went to my Toastmasters meeting.  We had two speakers, so we had an actual competition for best speaker.  One speech was about the insignias of the Canadian Armed Forces from a member thereof.   Very interesting.  The other speech was from a brand-new member.  He is a native of Botswana, and he talked a bit about what it was like to grow up there.  He had four homes.

I drove home and got here around 7:45.  Newbie and Cindy greeted me, wanting food.  Patricia greeted me, eating food.  I didn't have any food.  Made me sad.

Patricia told me an hour or so ago about the toaster.  I don't know why we go through so many toasters.  They are not overly used, but they stop working after maybe a year if we are lucky.   I will probably go to the department store next to my work and get a new one.  They're going out of business and everything is marked down, so I should be able to get a deal.

Tomorrow will be busy because after work, I will be going to Bedford to attend the 80th birthday party for Ronnie Roberts, the legendary CJCH broadcaster.  I have only met the man once, at Clive Schaefer's funeral, and I look forward to seeing him again, and perhaps rub elbows with a bunch of other jocks I haven't met yet who know who I am.  I will have to take extra Blog business cards with me.  I will need them.  Did I tell you that I ordered 2500 additional cards last week, and that they arrived on Monday?  2500 cards should last me for a couple of years, unless I start putting them in the spokes of my bike or something.

What bike?

You guys have a groovy evening.  I'll see you tomorrow.
