Not a lot new. House stuff. As mentioned, we pulled up the wall-to-wall carpet in the front room. Not an enormous room, but it also wasn’t tiny. Not knowing what to do with it, I rolled it, bent it in half, and stuffed it in the garbage bin. In the morning while lying in bed I heard the garbage truck. I threw back the curtain in excitement, and watched with glee when they took the damn thing.

Beth and I saw a bench for sale after walking downtown to go to the post office. We called the number, dropped the requested $10 in the mailbox, and carried it home for our porch.
