I had a leisurely day planned when I got up this morning. I got my coffee and sat down to read the paper. I saw my friend from Nature Club had passed away and his funeral was today. Visiting hour was at 10:00 with service at 11:00. It’s a good thing I went through the paper early and not put it off until later in the day. I called a few people in the Nature Club. No one was aware that Bill had died.

I took Danny on a quick walk and came home to get ready to go to the Episcopal Church to see Bill’s family. I was greeted by Kevin the undertaker who handled Ted’s funeral. I guess I’ve known Kevin for over 25 years. I worked in the Red Cross with his father. Kevin took over the business when his father retired.

Bill’s wife has a beautiful voice. She sings solo’s for our church during the summer for our special music. She also sings for the Singing Ambassadors. A group in Vineland. I saw some of the Singing Ambassadors at the church as well as my neighbor in the back, Doris. She goes to that church. In many ways, Vineland is a small town. Everyone knows everyone.

When I came home, I got a couple more projects crossed off my list. I installed a smoke alarm in the basement. I stripped the screw and didn’t get it in all the way. I must not have drilled the hole deep enough. It hung so it’s good enough. When I sell the house, it is required to have a smoke alarm on every floor including the basement. I have them on the other floors. I always had to put my own in. Now I have to put them in for someone else. Plus the CO2 detector. We had a couple but after a year or so, they would give false alarms. It’s kind of scary because you don’t know if you have CO2 in the house or not. Same thing happened to my brother. We tested it by taking it outside and it still went off. Anyway, I discovered the one I got can be a table model so I put it on the desk I have in the hall. If I have to mount it, I will but hopefully the desk will be good enough.

I went to the grocery store, called my brother, and watch one of my movies before dinner and one after dinner. On movie was “Elizabeth, the Golden Age.” The other was “The Queen,” The first was about Queen Elizabeth I and the second was about Queen Elizabeth II. I enjoyed both of them.

They are doing another upgrade to my site on Monday. I have to follow some kind of links so I don’t know if I’ll be up for a while. I don’t understand what I’m supposed to do.
