This morning I got my bi-weekly haircut. Then I drove down to the inspection station and got Dasher-1 inspected. That took about an hour and a quarter. It passed.

I drove to the dealership and got the oil changed. They were having a celebration of their fourth anniversary in business. The oil change only costs me $10. I also got a free hot-dog.

The dealership has a computer they let you use. While waiting for them to do my car, I used it to log onto the computer in my office and checked my emails.

Then I drove to Boscov’s, a local department store and got three blouses for Karol for her birthday. Home Depot is right next door so I stopped in to pick up a few items.

On the way home, I stopped at the business of someone that does computer hardware and networks. They are moving into a new building so I thought I’d stop by and say hi. We frequently collaborate on projects.

Upon reaching home, I got out my very long electrical cord and the hedge trimmers. I gave my hedge its first cut of the season. My hedge trimmers are on their last legs. It was a good time to try to straighten out some of the non-linearity’s that have snuck into the hedge over the last few years.

Then I got out the edger and edged the year. With the electrical cord strung out across the yard, I figured it was a good time to clean up. I pulled my blower out of the basement and cleaned up all the trimmings and edgings.

Then drove to the auto supply and picked up some car wash and wax materials. I washed my car. I really like the way it feels washing a car that has recently been waxed. The wool mitt I use just glides across the surface.

That was it I was out of time. I took and bath, Karol, and I went down to the Red Lobster for dinner.

I’m tired and going to bed.
