Shadows & sunshine.
Met Glennie & Mrs. Sandberg on 12:30 p.m. Sunset bus going to Frederick's for the 1:00 p.m. style show. Good lunch, having New England dinner. Shopped after the show at Frederick's on the different floors & also to basement. Sundbergs looking at refrigerators. Seriously considering to buy.
Was a refrigerator that big of a deal? Probably was in 1948. I would think every house had one, but I can't really be certain. BTW, it was Frederick & Nelson, not the other one (which was around back then, apparently).
Slept until 5 today and was only awake for a bit around 4 maybe. Spouse slept until after 7. Ate at home and then went outside to clear the roof drains because it's been raining steadily for the last couple of days and it was coming down the center of the roof so I knew something wasn't draining correctly. FULL of needles and junk and hardly draining at all. It was raining all this time, too. And I broke the rain chain so now the bottom 3 cups are missing. Went to U District for hair cut and lunch and I picked up some "compression shorts" aka, spandex boxer briefs for working out. Apparently, no one much wears tank tops anymore either so I'm a bit out of date, I guess. Must start buying new shirts, don't know what style yet.
Then came home and stayed except for a walk. The Yamaha is doing better -- I Deoxited it again and turned it upside down so it would maybe get to different places. Seems to be working better, but not clear yet. Watched an ESPN doc on some guy named Steve Bartman who interfered with a Cubs ball in the NLCS in 2003. Very interesting. Poor guy. I wish him well.
Steady rain all day, sunshine later this afternoon and maybe thunderboomers tonight.
