Skunked at Bingo. Should have had my nails done instead

Was the first one to the Hole this morning, after grabbing an egg and some soft drinks.

Again, nothing to work on so I tested Twitch, and monitored the news to find out if Reuben Foster was going to be back on the team. Turns out the ex who recanted her domestic violence charges against him had a previous conviction for lying about the same thing, different boyfriend, a few years ago.

Lunch was a "power bowl" of falafel and tahini, from the same folks who make the steamer bowls. It tasted fine but the quality/size was not good. Mixed fruit for dessert.

I spent a lot of the day bit by bit making the new tablet match the old one. Android does a great job of restoring automatically all the apps and most of the logins.

Headed out at 5:30, none of the Chinese engineers were in, so I locked up. Two who did not have the key came back as I got to my car, so I let them in. Without a key, though, they can't lock up.

Home, nothing delivered. Put the lunchbox away, put on a jacket & hat and walked to the community center for bingo. First session the cards I picked up were tiny and did not clear correctly after a round. I exchanged them for more functional cards at halftime.

Almost all the rounds were won by three people in the row in front of me. And to add insult to injury, they also won all the raffles. Excrement occurs. At least I'm only out $10.

Home, whipped up a batch of onions and mushrooms in one skillet while I used the newest grill to heat up two hamburger patties. Added garden grown oregano and rosemary to the onions, poured the mix over the burgers which were slapped onto a slice of sourdough. Not being much of a hamburger chef, they were a bit too rare for my taste, but not rare enough to put them back on the grill. Lactaid almond-chocolate ice cream with maraschino cherries for dessert.

Watched PTI and the news. Spot sat on my lap for some of it while Spook hid under the futon across the house.

**Foster was invited back to the team for tomorrow's practice, with the usual caveats. The ex incident was not his first rodeo.

Plans for tomorrow:
Call for a nail appointment
3:30 Hole #2 sync with boss and U. Maybe I'll get a device to work on.
Visit local high class market to see about uncooked chicken skin.
