Herself: Got her favorite brown wool sweater shaved. Boy it is old and worn, but boy it is light and warm too. Templates made on laptop. Bought more small things like hairpins.
Reading: Short stories of Randall Garrett.
Balance: Watching my socks get compressed in a bag.
Mexico’s economy, already badly damaged by the drug wars south of the border, will be further harmed as NCL, Princess, Carnival, and Holland America send their ships north up the California Coast. San Diego’s economy, badly hurt by the economic downturn, is looking forward to this unexpected crush of cruising tourists. Today over 5000 are expected to crowd the embarcadero. One ship is even staying in port until seven…a blessing to the Gaslamp District.
Today will be the first day in years that we should have three cruise ships in town at the same time. I’ll run down later in the day, after swimming, after the Poetry group, and take a picture or two of the latest behemoths floating in our harbor.
