This morning I got up at about six.  I noticed immediately that my left foot was sore.  Kind of a bruised feeling.  I decided to 'walk it off" and began a walk through the park in the early cool air.  I didn't get very far and it seemed to worsen...no, it did actually feel worse.  So, remembering my running days, I got out the ice and iced her down. Not much help, but it did kill the pain a bit.  

I had intended on having bacon and eggs for breakfast today, but frittered away the time and had to leave for church by eight-thirty.  I wanted to have a rib-eye steak for dinner, to celebrate, but found none in the freezer.  Eight packages of Costco burger, yes.  Steak? No.

I drove the four miles to church and was none too early.  There were few seats left and, in fact, they were having a second mass in the hall nearby.  Lots of folks "payin' up their fire insurance", as I've heard said.

The celebrant was from Africa.  This is the second priest from that continent I've seen in the last two months or so.  Not a popular job here anymore.  I remember that in my class of a hundred guys, there were at least ten who went into the priesthood.  Many of them are still at it.

But, I digress.  The folks there were friendly and the celebration was just what I needed.  I did leave a tad early to avoid the heavy traffic after mass.

When I got back to the park, I went over to the pool and laid (or is it lied?) in the sun for nearly an hour.  It was hot, but back fond memories of when my friend Jer' and I did the same in San Angelo Texas while in the Air Force.  Nice time and great memories.

I did a bit more foot-icing and played a few tunes that I'm learning.  I hadn't played for quite a while, but am happy that my fingers remember what to do.  Institutional memory, perhaps.

I'm watching the thermometer creep up past ninety-eight degrees and enjoying the gift of air conditioning.  There's a breeze out and it has clouded over, so it's actually comfortable for a part-time desert rat.

I've decided to cook the bacon on the Weber and celebrate in a non-traditional way.  Isn't bacon really the best anyway??

I got a couple of yesterday's full moon in the afternoon.  You can judge how they look.  I like the detail and contrast.  

I hope to get out for a bike ride after dinner to get at least a bit of exercise today.  Then I'll re-load Dolores and start prepping for tomorrow's trip to Goodyear.

I hope that you all had a fine Easter celebration.  Thanks for stopping by.

Is Delores what you call your RV? I don't think I knew that before...that is what I call my GPS...She gets me everywhere I want to go. Oh, and thank you for NOT putting a picture of your iced foot on your blog today...that would have been going just a little too far and we would have had to bring you home, you know. LOL!
