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
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.
