I watched five trains this morning. I figure that is a new record for trains coming through town on a Saturday morning. Each would pass and I would write down the engine numbers and took photos. My camera's batteries died on the third train.
I left the tracks and walked past Merl's diner up to the shopping center. None of the gang was out today. We had a threat of storms that I was carelessly ignoring. A threat that the gang must be heeding. I walked into the grocery store and bought a pack of cheese and chives crackers and a chocolate milk. I spent the rest of the morning people watching.
When I had arrived home, Joyce had called Charlie complaining about Maggie having my "underwear" outside. Charlie was in my backyard picking up what were actually socks.
"I can't help but laugh," Charlie told me smiling. "Joyce said Maggie was taking all your underwear outside and chewing it up."
Maggie does have a bad habit of carrying my socks through the dog door and outside. Nothing to merit a phone call to Charlie though. It kind of got off with me and embarrassed me. Busybody neighbors.
"You ready for your meds?" Charlie asked me as we walked inside.
"Yeah," I said, more interested in my Benadryl.
I took my medications and Charlie left. They usually make me very drowsy and I normally take them closer to bed. I think a nap is in my future. That is all I have to write about.
