Have you ever cheered someone else just with a sentence or two? I did that this morning with a local police officer. I said the usual greetings and ended with, 'hey, it's Friday, TGIF.' One of the cops remarked that that reminder brightened his day. Wasn't that nice.
The sun is rising later. This morning I could look east, to see if my bus was coming, without risking damage to my eyes.
My stomach has settled down. I think. We'll see what happens in a half-hour or so when my breakfast starts really digesting.
