Instead of riding this morning I chose to (thankfully) wake up at 11:30pm last night to start cooking a 7-pound pork butt. I will be serving this for lunch today along with some fixins and tortilla shells. I started the “make lunch for a group monthly lunch” a few years ago and sadly have been the only one who routinely supplies. Whatevs. I hope that my last one is a good one.
The Swelling Is Down, But I’m Still Attentive
The swelling in my right eye has gone down considerably but I’m still concerned about the apparent bump that remains on my eyelid. First, I should restate how strange my genetics are — the appearance/disappearance of lumps is common. So, I’ve decided not to condemn myself to mortal fear at least until I return from Iowa. For all I know everything will return to normal by then. Hopefully.

“Top Cornhole Form” (Atlanta, Georgia, United States)
Pictured you see yours truly trying anything possible to land a beanbag on a cornhole board. In my defense the side from which I was throwing slightly above the side to which I was throwing, and the board was slightly tilted to the left on the other end. I know, excuses, excuses.
What Happened To D-Cell Batteries?
In addition to picking up things at Target for today’s lunch I was there to get some D-cell batteries for the tent fan that is on its way to me. Damn, why didn’t I just order some from Amazon? To my surprise Target was “completely” out (in the two areas of the store in which I looked) of D-cell batteries! I guess that I can try another Target tonight, or head to a hardware store and see what they have in stock. Heck, I need to go to Batteries Plus anyway, perhaps I should try and kill two birds with one stone.
Birthday Beer Tonight
My soon-to-be-former boss Hank is taking me out for a birthday beer tonight. I am trying to decide where I’d like to go.
