Friday. Lights out by eight-thirty to awaken at six minutes to six in time for the KPFA five minutes news. Right on target. Did forget to set the alarm, something that seems to happen more and more often anymore. Ah, well. Up to head out for breakfast under another overcast sky, the eyes watering a bit, but arriving before seven to find the restaurant open and ready for business.

The avocado omelet (we're no longer ordering it with cheese), country potatoes, toast, fruit cup and coffee for breakfast over the papers to finish at eight-forty (or thirty or something like that) and set out for home under the overcast sky. They're saying sun later, similar to the mornings for this last week, so no complaints. The usual set of pictures to include the selfie in the lobby before addressing yesterday's incoherent entry. Nothing new in any of this.

Everyone's long ago decided it's not going to change.

Ah, well. Focus on the walking and getting out the door for some semblance of exercise and pictures and stick with that.

Later. A little stir crazy, building up until it drove me out the door, looking at the watch and remembering the bus was due right about then, arriving at the stop as the bus arrived. Wasn't sure where I was going, but ended up going to the Broadway ATM on 20th and then walking back to Grand to catch the return bus home. Thought to stop and pick something up to eat, but wasn't hungry. Had the camera with me in the backpack (as I always do), but no pictures. Can't say it was much of a walk, but it did get me out the door.

Evening. Watched stuff on the tablet, remembered the Warriors were playing today when I noticed the blurb they'd won their game on one of the news sites as it approached nine. So much for wondering about my apparent interest in the Warriors.

Nah. Just another demonstration of a memory lapse. You're on a roll.

Lights out by ten.
