1. The Ducks lost to Cal this afternoon, 31-24, in a gut buster and I sure enjoyed listening to the whole game on the radio.
2. When was the last time I enjoyed a piece of short fiction more than Tim O'Brien's "On the Rainy River". It encapsulated my favorite expression of understanding and compassion. The best compassion ain't sloppy.
3. The checker at Albertson's today was friendly, funny, and a little tiny bit flirty. She made Joe Albertson's supermarket a little more fun to visit.
