At the conclusion of every evening, I tell my son and daughter, "Go pick out a book for daddy to read for bedtime." At this my son always replies, "One or two books?" I provide my answer based on the time. However, as last night was the last night I would see them both for two weeks, I told him, "Daddy will read as many books as you want tonight." They each brought me sixteen books! So, I read 32 books last night, putting the children down at an unprecedented 2330. Riveting titles such as, Hop on Pop, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, and Bears on Wheels. They fell right asleep at the conclusion of storytime.
I had a 1968 Dodge Coronet 440 which had a 20 gallon gas tank. In 1988 gas was $.88 a gallon and I could fill it for under $20. Today, it cost me $30 to fill the micro-tank on my Cavalier. Perhaps I'll try to keep the vehicle under 80mph for awhile and see if this helps alleviate the strain of the cost of gas. At least I don't live in California!
Finished part two of the Star Trek: Voyager book Homecoming, this one entitled, The Farther Shore. I don't know how Christie Golden does it. The characters are exactly like they were in the series. Picked up another Voyager book, this will be my first non-Christ Golden book, Section 31, but first I must read Old Wounds and Enemy of my Enemy which have been in my car forever awaiting the conclusion of Homecoming.

Looked at houses Saturday in the Crowley/Burleson area. It's hard to downsize.
