  2. Alas my spending habits often outstrip my capacity. Too late for me to get rich.

    Latest spend follows. A pair of Birkenstock knockoffs from Germany.

    American Beech again, this time with a frozen roadside waterfall as a backdrop.

    I cleared the back stairs, so the dog can get out again, however briefly.

    Storm debris whereever I went (I went there to find it, of course ;)):

    "Burghild" (what a name!) hit us hard indeed ...

    Day Five - the wrong numbers

    My blood test results today confirmed that I’m running on slow. I wonder if that is why I miss my train most mornings? As I had some time till the next one was due I scouted around with my camera for a safety shot. Despite the absence of trees around the platform I found a scattering of leaves. I was in luck. As for the wrong numbers, a sudden realisation that I had miscalculated my remaining leave allowance has thrown our travel plans for this year into disarray. I checked, double checked and triple checked my calculations over lunch time instead of scouting for another picture as originally planned. Sadly this just confirmed I had been a dodo! Oh wait, no, blood test confirm I’m just running on slow. No getting away from it though, Japan is off the table for this year. Poop!

    Hampton is a colleague that is also a frequent lunch time friend. Today, he along with a couple of others treated me to lunch to celebrate my birthday. I ordered the 'Quesadilla burger' at Lankford Grocery a 'dive' that has been in business for 73 years. Caught this image while waiting for our burgers.
