1. The woman working the front desk at LabCorp, where I have my blood drawn, chuckled when I told her that I saw my order included urinalysis and that "I'm ready any time to do my part." She immediately reached for a cup and said, "You know where the bathroom is, right?" "I sure do."
2. I spent much of the day reviewing memory cards that hold pictures I lost on the external hard drive I busted nearly three years ago. I found more pictures I hoped I'd find -- I made more folders and made more flickr albums, with many more to come. I've resigned myself to what I think is the fact that I have lost the card with my end of June, 2011 pictures on it -- the ones I took in Ashland and on the Rogue River driving home. It's disappointing, but I keep hoping they'll surprise me and pop up...but that hope is pretty faint. (I loved that weekend with Bill and Diane and I had a great time taking pictures....but everything is temporary, right?)
3. I finalized a decision with the financial guys today, but when Dillon and I got to talking about the wonders of the game of golf and about golf courses in this area, that was more fun than talking about income and draw downs. I detected melancholy in my voice when I explained why I don't play any longer.
