Monday. It's hot.
Pretty brutal outside today. Up into the nineties and high humidity. I took the truck and went into town. I haven't driven the F250 in a while and if you don't run a diesel fairly frequently you start having troubles with it.
Stopped by the post office. There was only one window open. Some old fellow about 95 from the looks of him was in there trying to get his mail held while he was out of town, and the procedure was just a little bit more than he could get a handle on. I stood in line for about 15 minutes, then decided to come back later.
I was in a hurry so I ate lunch at Burger King. I almost never go into fast food places and now I remember why. Trash falling out of the garbage cans. Dirty tables. The people working there would rather have been anywhere else and showed it. I ate my unpalatable lunch and left. I guess I'll stick to the country cafes from now on.
Went out to Walmart. I bought 50 lbs of dog food, 22 lbs of dry cat food, 24 cans of wet cat food, 8 pounds of kitten chow, one big bag of ferret treats, one big bag of rat food, and some eggs for me. My hens have quit laying. Periodically they do that , for reasons I can't figure out. Got some diesel in the truck at $3.72 a gallon. Now I am inside, where it is cool, listening to some smooth jazz and pondering whether or not a nap is called for. I believe it is.
