I intended posting quite early today.
As you can see, it never happened.
What can I say?
The usual stuff.
Watered the garden.
With water I saved from my shower last night.
Took said soup to my Dad.

Not too much flinching and jerking.
I also read a lot of blogs.

A lot of those folk put so much into their posts.
Some of them are so deep, I don’t think I really understand them.

He is lucky I like people.
M’s eyes glazed over.
M IS an introvert.
