This afternoon will be for yard work. Weather permitting, of course.

A perfect ending to a busy day: listening to Eric Nadel calling a Texas Rangers game, and the Rangers winning said game.

Well. Either the touch screen on my smartphone has developed a psychotic mind of its own, or my fingers have achieved new levels of clumsiness.

Big change! The dynamic of my days over the next 3 months (and maybe for much longer than that) will change considerably from what it's been for the past year. Responsibilities with my KofC Council have really picked up. Time management will be key as I try to balance the hours most effectively.

The bad... Oak pollen levels here in San Antonio are obscenely high today. My sinuses knew that before the guy on my morning radio told me. Yes, this will be another day to megadose on the allergy meds. Already doing that.

The good. Even this early in the day my central a/c is pouring cool, cool air throughout the house. Good thing, too: outside temperatures may top 90 degrees. Here in Roscoe's micro-verse we'll keep it a comfortable 72.

Much easier. Installed and worked with the Audacity software program on Linux this afternoon. Found it so much easier to use than when I first tried to work with it 10 years ago.

So. I may watch tonight's NCAA Championship game, but then again I may not. I saw the Baylor / Houston game Saturday night and enjoyed it. But I didn't watch the Gonzaga game. By all reports Gonzaga is an excellent team. But reports also say their players “grandstand” a lot. And I'm in no mood to watch college kids behave that way.

Darn. Learned this afternoon from his wife that an old friend of mine who has been suffering with ALS for over a year is now near death. /sigh... The older I get, the more friends I lose.

Oh, this is comfortable! A few minutes ago my first ever pair of Birkenstock sandals were delivered and I'm wearing them now. Hope they're durable, because I intend to wear them A LOT!
