Friday. To sleep after ten to awaken for good just before six in time to listen to the KPFA five minute news followed by Democracy Now! before getting up at the usual time to walk to breakfast. The newspaper delivery man had left two copies of the Chronicle and no copy of the N.Y. Times this morning. He's done this before, hope it doesn't become a habit. Still, I need to be at the barbershop located along the way home at nine and so no Times pretty much guarantees I'll finish in time to make it. Arrived a little early to turn on the dining room lights and settle in with my now two papers.

The plain waffle with sliced bananas and strawberries, fruit cup and coffee, finishing up some eight minutes before nine to walk to the barber shop taking the usual pictures, arriving at nine to have the hair cut short this time, finishing and walking the rest of the way home to take the selfie in the lobby, check the car in the garage to see how the battery charge was going (almost done) before settling down at the computer and putting yesterday's entry to rest, posting, processing the morning pictures and starting with this. Overcast earlier, but the sun is out now that it's after eleven.

Later. A high of sixty-nine today the Weather Underground web site is saying, so good. I guess. The car battery finished charging at four and so I've got a car that will probably start reliably now for another couple of months. Maybe drive to the supermarket Sunday. Or tomorrow.

Watched more House episodes on the tablet, listened to the three news programs it seems I can't avoid listening to that start at two and that's been about it for the afternoon.

Evening. More House, but up at eight to watch Inspector Morse more out of habit than anything else. I'd seen it before, remembered the beginning anyway, but managed to get through about forty-five minutes of it before bailing and heading back to the tablet.
