Art & Life

Friday. It was after eleven when I got to sleep. Not all that much longer, although I can't swear to it. Awoke at five-thirty, too early, but took the blood pressure to find it pushing the edge of “normal” and so took the blood pressure med, figuring it wouldn't drop all that low over breakfast as it has done inexplicably in the past. Up to drive to the Lake shore ATM and then over the hill to park by the 7-11 store, cross Grand, enter the indoor dining area and settle in with the papers.

The two strips of bacon, scrambled eggs, country potatoes, toast, fruit cup and coffee, the weight close to one-fifty on the scale this morning, finishing up again around nine to walk to the car and drive home to take the selfie in the lobby and then settle down at the computer to finish and post yesterday's entry, process the morning's few pictures and start here at just after ten-thirty. A good way to start a Friday in November? Might as well be except for the air index is again in the “Unhealthy For Some” range. Maybe best that I'd driven.

Later. The two computer cables I'd ordered yesterday arrived and so I began sorting out the external hard drives and how to manage all the images they contain. This will take a while, but at least I've started. Did some cleaning up of the computer equipment area , not nearly enough, but any start there is good. Good is good.

Otherwise news and the tablet. What else?

Evening. Nothing on television and so to bed early, lights out by nine-thirty, but again, my lights out not until it was after eleven.

The photo up top was taken in October 2015 at the Oakland Museum of California Día de los Muertos Exhibition with a Nikon D4s mounted with a 70-200mm f 2.8 VR II Nikkor lens.
