My days feel ‘off’ from the Holiday and getting back home midweek. Went to a 60 minute spin class, and eventually meandered over to the Art Museum. One of the nicer things about living in St Louis are the free museums, zoo, and the beautiful Forest Park. Came home and made some pizza dough for a pie I’ll make tomorrow.

Washed and waxed the convertible today as it was 65 F out and sunny.

Now I am watching the Texans get their @$$ handed to them by Buffalo.

Tonight.....Mexican food with DD and DSIL.

Texans don't get their a$$ whipped often enough. It might teach them a little humility (but I doubt it).

What? They have never won the Big One and in the last ten years have been mediocre, at best.

He may mean people from Texas as opposed to the football team (who have won, now, by the way).

Oh you were talking about the football team...?

Just so you know I'm not blind to the flaws of my home state: We Badgers drink waaay too much.

BTW my undergraduate alma mater has played for the NCAA Division III national championship five times in the last decade.

On May 27, 2014, UW-Whitewater made history as the first NCAA institution in any division to win national championships in men's football, basketball, and baseball in a single academic year

...Yes, it's hard to be humble.

I cleaned out a file drawer, and in the process threw away a career’s worth of performance reviews.

The only reason I still had them is because when I retired almost five years ago I brought home some files, put them away in a drawer and haven’t looked at them since.

I saved my compensation notifications in case I need them to prove something when I start my pension (planned in five years), or so the kids can get a kick out of how little I earned way back in 1987.

I discovered the Nextdoor website and brought my car to the recommended garage for inspection.

I hope I don't get a large cost estimate for repair of my 10yr old, 100k-mile minivan, which drives fine.
