Post 3395 - Tuesday

Past 10pm.

Went back to work today, after a sick day on Monday. Feeling much better.

When I got to work this morning, I discovered that someone had left me some magazines as well as a paperback book. It was one of Max Haines True Crime Casebooks. Much appreciated.

I haven't read as much true crime in book form as someone with that interest might be expected to have. Much of that genre is overwritten and overwrought. But Haines is a newspaperman. He had word counts and column inches to worry about. Not much room for frills.

I don't know who left me that stuff, but thank you, whoever you are.

After dinner tonight, before I started washing the dishes, we tried something different. We decided to go for a walk around the block. We were gone for maybe 10-12 minutes, but that short walk re-energized us. I won't say that I can remain up and going for hours yet, but I am not tired tonight like I am lots of other evenings. I like that. I hope that we make this a part of our regular activities.

Listening to the repeat of "q" on CBC radio this evening. Candy Palmater is interviewing Myles Goodwyn from April Wine. He has a new memoir out, which I think I want. It is a good interview despite the fact that Candy is doing it. I can't wait until Tom Power takes over the show, which is any day now.

I think I will turn in. Not that tired, but I should at least stare at the ceiling for a while.

See you tomorrow.
