Well, don't know if it was the couple of long days and long evening, but I awoke with sore toes yesterday. I actually called to see if we had church, since our pastor is in hospital, only to find it was already 11am, not 10am as I thought...

Called 811 nurse, not helpful. Kept it up most of the day. But, then I had this brainwave, that since cast ends short of my toes, I wondered if toes - used to touching bottom of shoe - were maybe cramping, so I put a rag under them all day and found walking easier...

Trying to get insurance on car worked out today... things always take so long. I spent over an hour with GreyPower, who are supposed to provide cheaper insurance for seniors with no claims, only to find it was about $550 MORE..... not impressed, and I told him so...
Finished reading last month's book club book and it was Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay... amazing book.... about Jews who were ripped from their home in Paris and sent to Auschwitz. A reported comes along 60 yrs. later and hears about Velodrome D'Hiver memorial and researching it finds her in-laws had lived in the house of the girl who managed to escape and all the involvements and connections, ending up tracking her grandson and some cool twists and turns.... Excellent book...

Tracked two of the 4 books for the course starting on May 1, The Book of Negroes is about 550 pg, and there are 3 other books and multiple assignments, guess you're not getting 2 credits for doing nothing... Might me more than I can handle at this time...would be very interesting... the prof is retiring after this course (don't know him or anything) and one of the books is one he is publishing next year.... Hmmmmm?
