Breakfast: Toasted bagel & Philly cream cheese, and a couple cups o' coffee. Oh, and the restaurant is celebrating their 30-something anniversary, so I had a free piece of German chocolate cake too!

Lunch: Double cheeseburger & fries, and a Mountain Dew at our favorite little neighborhood store (across town) that is closing it's doors Friday when the owners retire. I'm sad that the store is closing, but happy for Mac & Nan's retirement!

Dinner: A big bowl of cream chicken vegetable soup.

And for snacks throughout the day, I had my usual....a banana, a couple of tangerines, a fist full of nuts, and a glass of tomato juice.
