They call him Flipper

Yesterday I accidentally discovered a nice way to keep my hands just warm enough without resorting to using gloves. Now that I'm wearing a long-sleeve shirt under my hoodie, I can pull the sleeves out far enough to cover my hands. With a lot of hoodies, I'd just pull my hands into the sleeves, but they aren't quite long enough to do that. But the shirt's sleeves are, and it's perfect. They look like silly little flippers, but that doesn't bother me. This help if it gets down into the 20s again, but it was 35 degrees today and it was great. The tide was high, but the water and air were very still.

The glow over Boeing was the brightest I've ever seen it. In fact, the trees around there are bare enough that I even saw some of the lights that glow comes from, though I didn't get a picture of that.

More of the boats have been decorated, which is nice.

Today's special.

When I first saw this, I thought it was the dawn sky shining through a break in the clouds.

Turns out, it was the moon, and the timing couldn't have been better. I watched it from the fishing pier for ten minutes or so.

Today's awesome walk, 5.46 miles in 1:48, 11,858 steps

I waited quite a while to put my earbuds in, and noticed the battery was nearly dead when I did. My mp3 player only lasted a few songs, and today's walk seemed really long. But it was a really nice morning for that to have happened.

Having lunch for the second day in a row at our neighborhood bar, but with different company. My friend Barbara's getting her hair cut at the poorly-named Angel Hair a few doors down, and I'll keep her friend Dale company while that's happening, after which we'll all have lunch. Then he's taking her to her doctor appointment. Tomorrow, it'll just be me and Barbara for lunch again, which we'll have at the bowling alley a couple blocks down the road. Three lunches out in a row!

Unfortunately, I have a conference call late this afternoon. But it's the first one in a long time so I really can't complain.
