Get Straight

Thursday. The Royals do seem to be the better team, at least in what they've shown in these first two games, so an interesting night watching a baseball game. There were times when I followed the game and last night brought back some of those memories.

To bed by ten, but another night of awakening and getting up to take a leak, getting up again to take a leak. Awoke just before six, not tired, didn't feel I'd been cheated on sleep, so who knows? Up early enough that I decided, rather than wait for it to get lighter, to drive to breakfast and feed the meter for half and hour's time. Fine.

One thing I remembered this morning, first thing, was I'd forgotten to run the home Protime blood test yesterday. I'm very good at this, not remembering things and so, having started the laundry when I got home, I ran the test, a task of maybe five minutes (the outcome fine). Ding-a-ling, here in Oakland. I'm afraid that's a bell I'm sounding more often.

Time to worry?

Not yet. Just noting.

Later. Laundry done, folded and hung before noon including all the socks and so, with all this progress, to bed for about an hour to attempt a nap. No sleep, but a nice hazy hour of drifting inside a low lying cloud.

And that's about it. Stayed inside, put together another section of Latham Square photographs (short by three photographs I need to take and add tomorrow) and so progress. Not much, but some.

Evening. Watched Democracy Now for their take on the Republican debate. Started Charlie Rose, as he'd said last night he was going to discuss the debate, but had substituted someone talking about Syria and the various wars we have going on in the Middle East. Didn't want to hear what turned out to be his opinion (war forever) on the Middle East. Better to watch these debates yourself and eliminate the talking heads, I guess. Some things you need to get straight.

The photo up top was taken Sunday at the Oakland Museum of California with a Nikon D4s mounted with a 70-200mm f 2.8 VR II Nikkor lens.
