Events I attended
On Friday night I watched half of the high school’s playoff game which, unfortunately, they lost. But I did get the see the band perform the half-time show in their Halloween costumes. Several members of the percussion section dressed as blind referees and one of them wandered around the field with a white cane.
On Saturday I got invited to a birthday party for one of my wife’s friends because there would be other husbands there who might need someone to talk to. We didn’t talk much, just watched a lot of college football, more football than I’d watched in a very long time. But there was plenty of good food, so that was a plus.
Then on Sunday we went to a farewell party for one of our Sayaw FilipinOH friends who returned to the Philippines today. She’s completed her studies here but she promised she’d be back. She’ll be missed.
What I’m reading
I’m still reading Dreams of Awakening by Charlie Morley though I haven’t devoted much time to it this week.
Project I’m working on
My aging desktop computer was showing signs of its obsolescence so I bit the bullet and did an upgrade. I found a refurbished desktop PC online and I drove down to the outskirts of Cincinnati to pick it up. Once I got it home, I went about adding more memory and loading Linux on it. I’ve got my data moved and I’m still working out a few issues with it. If there’s anything I’ve learned in 25 years of computer maintenance, it’s that there is no such thing as an easy upgrade. There’s always something that bites you in the ass.
