I rolled out at 6:00 this morning, fed the dogs, made breakfast, and read the paper. Then I started cutting grass at 7:00. There was a 50 per cent chance of rain, but the grass was perfectly dry – no dew – and it was cool. I didn’t stop to dig up sand burrs, and there were a few out there, but I still didn’t finish until 8:47. I think all the things I have to mow around and the separated areas make it take longer than it should. The grass didn't look bad when I started, but it did look a lot better when I was done.

After I had a shower and shaved and put on clean clothes, I picked up Jack for lunch. We went to Snooker’s for Amber Bocks and sandwiches. He had pulled pork, and I had a chicken burrito. It was way too much lunch but I ate it all anyhow. I should have ordered the rice and beans, but I didn’t see that until too late – the Chicken Burrito was on a blackboard as the special for yesterday (Cinco de Mayo) and it reminded me of Ray and Cecelia and the wonderful burritos we got in southern California.

Later I went down to the church and checked out standing on the platform scale in my bare feet to see if I could accidentally make the scale weigh lighter by wrapping my big toe over the edge. You have to stand unnaturally close to the balance beam, wrap your toe way down, and push hard to affect the scale. I’m still thinking about it, but it seems at least very unlikely anyone could do that by accident, even if their feet are numb. It’s especially unlikely that it would happen every Thursday for five weeks until I figured out what was wrong with the scale. It’s probably not totally impossible that this was an accident, but I wouldn’t bet anything that it was.

Then I took care of some more Kiwanis stuff and did today's Sparks People. In another hour or so we will have supper.

    I'll have to remember your scale trick when I don't want to honest with myself. I've always thought that I got a lighter result when I stand on the very back edge.
