- We gave all but the carb munchies away today and went shopping for veggies and fruit just before eight tonight. The Weight Watcher lecturer asked what one thing did you want to change this week. G and I agreed to get rid of the crackers….all those crackers we just bought.
- Out in the rain on an emergency shopping trip, we started at Ross looking for a game pad controler for his new computer game. None there, but there was a nice new pair of black, stretch Levis that fit me for eleven bucks. The pair of pants I have on today are so big that they slide off despite two big tucks. Not good. We found a controller thingy at good old, Radio Shack.
- Book Reviews: I liked the history and passion about Monuments Men. The author, Edsel, repeats and repeats himself so that even I with much brain can remember he has said that before. The first half reads well and intimately, the last portion was dry and historical. Still it was worth the read, and it’s worth keeping. I’m just starting in on The Blair House, an intimate portrait of America’s guest house charmingly written. Easy to read, I had never known this book to exist before. Did I ever mention before that I collected cookbooks and historical volumes about the White House? I think a book about the Blair House should fit in that catagory.
