Spent most of the day down at the very active railyard. Saw multiple trains and ate my lunch behind the bank on the bench where Ferret would always sleep homeless. Walking through the shopping center today reminded me of my old friends. Big S. George. Ferret. Clara. Dexter. Dumpster Diving Dan. I wondered what they all were doing these days.
Left the railyard and ate one of Merl's big hamburgers at Merl's Diner. I was stuffed. I had already eaten some sandwiches for lunch. It was an impulse binging. There goes my diet. I am still hovering around 215 pounds.
Mom came by this afternoon. She brought a gift of toilet paper. A huge pack of it.
"I didn't want you to run out," she told me.
Mom and I sat in my den for the longest time just watching The Weather Channel and talking. I missed our McDonald's coffee ritual today and she said we would do it in the morning -- get back on track.
