I should probably thank the Fox television network (whaaaat?). They prevented the Giantsí game this afternoon from being televised, so I listened to it on the radio, rather than watching whatever game Fox decided was of more interest. I donít appreciate their making that choice for me, but I should probably thank them, because if the Giants had been on TV, I probably would have sat and watched the game for three hours. Iím not into sitting and looking at the radio, so I found other things to do while I was listening.
Now, Iím not saying I got a lot done while the game was on. It is, after all, Saturday, so what I did would fall into the Puttering category. I puttered here and there around the house, did some shredding of junk mail and recycling of old magazines. Thereís something I wonít have to do much longer. As soon as my Newsweek subscription runs out in July, Iíll switch over to a Kindle subscription instead. No waste there.
So the living room looks a little better than it did when the day (or the game) started. Thereís no use pretending I worked in the yard. You know I couldnít have heard the radio with the mower or the weed trimmer running, and besides, it was hot and windy out there today. Iíll take a pass on exposing my allergies to those conditions. This was my first non-Benadryl day in a while, and I wanted to keep it that way.
