Commute

As the world turns. Monday I was a total grump and today I'm a giddy man-child. The temp this afternoon/evening was about 78F with sun and no humidity, just like the weather we faced in Portland. It was sublime. I had a nice 13.5m commute with 'Alberto' (I think I called him that at another time on this blog). His mother died recently and I encouraged him to get out and stretch the legs as a means of escape and distraction. He did well going into work this morning. This afternoon he suffered a bit more, but he made it home and I enjoyed helping him along. We even stopped by OYLC where I picked up the Mad Alchemy Gentlemen's Embro I ordered and Alberto decided to spring for a new helmet as his was *old* and stretched out.

The afternoon then proceeded to Z's soccer game, which ended in a 1-1 draw. Z played well and played the entire game, one of 4 players to do so. The remaining spots rotated heavily in this first JV scrimmage. Afterwards, the boys and I partook of some Papalino's while the good wife/mom had choir practice. The feta cheese and capicola pizza on my end hit the spot, as did the 2 Brooklyn IPAs. Mighty fine day. Might fine.

Glad to hear of the all around good day. We had a great one here. It was only 92 breezy degrees this afternoon when I came home from work. Mrs. Pondero and I sat out on the front porch and enjoyed the outdoors.

@Pondero, I was shocked to hear on the radio that Dallas had had 40 straight days of triple digit temps, and I know you're just a bit north of there. That's infernal, if not literally!!
