holy shit - it's Saturday. I truly believed it was Monday and I was prepared to go to the doctors. got my coat, hat and new gloves - poured a to-go cup of joe and hugged my son goodbye - then my wife asked where I was going.
okay, she laughs beautifully, even when it is at my expense. I love her laugh so I can't be mad, only confused. Also a little peeved as the appointment was the only reason I got out of bed at all.
The great advantage of using cell phones is that I can turn it off when I want to not be bothered. The unfortunate side of that is I forget I shut it off or I just allow it to wane its battery until death and forget all about the fact that I have the bugger. It never occurs to me that no one calls, it never occurs to me that I should call other people.
I'll never forget the furling flags
