Yesterday the internet fix 'em up guy arrived just as I was contemplating having some lunch. I let my; smarter than I am with electronics computers and internet thingies, wife chat with the repair guy. He then disappeared down stairs for a bit and then went outside for a moment only to return and let us know he had found the problem and corrected it. The issue was the internet signal was too strong. This came as a surprise to me having grown up with the too much is never a bad thing school of thought. Well the internet seems to be working fine now although for how long is anybody's guess.
Last night was one of “those nights.” No matter how I positioned myself I just couldn't get comfortable. In addition to this my old brain just would not settle down. The last time I took a peek at my wrist watch it was flirting with four AM. Sooner than I would have liked the alarm went off and I crawled out of my nice warm bed.
I managed to change myself from a homeless looking guy to someone who was presentable in jig time. After giving my wife a peck on the cheek, I was outbound heading for the heart of the big city. I was doing lunch with my friend R down in Hogtown. The trip down to the city was relatively uneventful. I parked the truck at a mega mall and hopped on the subway. The hell I was going to drive down town.

Sooner than I expected I was at my friend's address. We chatted while he got ready then we headed over to the restaurant. Lunch was fine and the server even took pity on R and I, she charged us the seniors rate. I didn't know if I should be insulted or not so I chose the “or not” route and we had a good laugh about it.
|OK I admit it there are few|
nice things downtown
|At least it was a nice day|
After lunch R walked me over to the subway where we shook hands and promised to meet again for lunch in the spring. The trip home was shorter time wise for some reason. Well I wasn't going to worry about it, I was out of that place. It looks like the older I get the less I like going to big cities. It's not that the big city is a bad place exactly, I guess it's the amount of people and my experiences of dealing with large groups when things go wrong.

Well that's my little adventure for today. Until tomorrow enjoy the warm temps as long as you can. Bye-bye...
