Let's Get Started

,,, the man who goes alone can start today; but he who travels with another must wait till that other is ready, and it may be a long time before they get off. (Henry David Thoreau, Walden, p. 93)


I bought a cute ceramic pot that looks like a bag with a green draw string. On the side of the pot in different colored letters are the words, "jelly beans." I'm going to place the pot beside my computer to hold my pens and pencils. I got a good deal on the pot, forty cents at the 25% off sale at the thrift store yesterday.

Yesterday we went to Takoma Park to eat lunch at a Spanish place. They'd done some remodeling. Melva asked them to change the program on the large screen television. It was 2:00 p.m. and time for "Escandelo TV." It took the waitress a long time to find the show. She searched the on-screen menu for several minutes before she found the name of the show. It looks like there are more channels on satellite TV than we have on Verizon FIOS.

The Toyota is at the dealer today because the "Check Engine" light was on. We are still waiting, like everyone else, for Toyota to give us instructions concerning the defective accelerator. Good grief! There is also a recall for our other vehicle a Ford minivan. What a mess!

I'm working on a couple of genealogy projects, extracting some information from reference books about Monroe county, Ohio.
