1. I love rehearsing and performing "The Taming of the Shrew", but it was nice to have a day off and go to Brails for some breakfast after church and to get some grocery shopping done and run into Kate and have a nice conversation that veered toward praising two of my favorite women in the movies: Catherine Keener and Hope Davis.
2. I bought flat iron steaks and cooked them with a crispy exterior and a medium rare interior and the Deek and I could not believe our good fortune that we were actually eating such good food.
3. Tiger Woods in contention in a major golf tournament excites me and I listened to the Masters on the car radio as I puttered from place to place and when he hit that second shot on the eighth hole to within about twelve feet of the pin and then made the putt, a surge of excitement I hadn't felt for a while coursed through my veins. I realize he came up short; I realize his Saturday score hurt him; I realize he missed opportunities to score even better today. I don't care whether Tiger's "back". I simply enjoyed the times he played riveting golf this weekend. It's fun when he gets it going. (The last golfer to get me excited like this was Lee Trevino. I really loved watching him play. In fact, I enjoyed him a lot more than I enjoy Tiger Woods.)
