Today was a bit of an adventure, though. It simply started where I wanted to walk with a donation down to the nearby thrift shop. They have a drop box on the corner of the street, so I did so. Then I decided I wanted to walk over to the hospital's Diabetes Education building to weigh myself. 353 pounds. Nice. But I wanted to go on, so I walked to the library, to see if they had any books I wanted or movies to check out. Not open yet. OK. I go to the adjacent park and get a drink. They're open when I return. I request "The Te of Piglet" at one of the catalog search terminals. Meanwhile, there is nothing on the shelves that I want.
I'm very hungry; I hadn't eaten breakfast yet. So I go further downtown to the Sun Mart that has a Subway, have a nice 6" buffalo chicken sub, and scribble the note you see above. Walked past the old Sunburst video– quite a shame the business had to fold. Looked at the beauty school that's located now in the old Penguin Plumbing building. Wondered if they still had Halloween makeup. (When I still played Live Action roleplay, such was needed now and then.) Thought about going to the Big 5 sporting goods store on my way back to get camera binoculars. Decided against it and continued on to Schuck's/O'Reilly's auto supply store to get a reuseable K&N air filter for the car. Decided to get an oil filter of the same brand. Hopefully it will pay off in the long run.
Did not want to climb the hilly street next to the store, so I doubled back to the street alongside the Catholic elementary school to take advantage of a shortcut only available to pedestrians. Got home and had Cimmy put the air filter in. The oil pump works, but there was no way she could get at the oil filter without crawling under the car, and we don't have the means to do that very well. Besides, so little oil was drawn out and she thought she was missing something. So we gave up and she took it to Wal-Mart to have it changed.
Now, if only I had the resources those trained monkeys do…
