It's Easter Eve, and I don't have any candy to hide.  Drat.  

*  Read email and blogs, dropped Linda at the Y, then home to gather my Bible study papers, and to Marie Callenders for breakfast before 8 a.m.  We had only 6 today, starting II Samuel study.

*  Broke open the Forever box that came last week, and found the two DVDs and the USB drive.  Put the USB drive in - all 23 files are 3 minutes and about 60 mb.  Watched most of them - lots of talking to myself, berating of the camerafolk, they could have been even better.  Made some screenshots while watching full screen and saved them.  Some are priceless photos - I'll use them for the Wordless Wednesday.  I have no photographs at all of most of the scenes in these movies!  

*  Went in at 5:10 p.m. to eat dinner and watch TV news.  Online at 6 p.m. to write the two Saturday posts, then copied the movies to the external drive.  I need to get them in a cloud drive too, but don't have 1.3 gb to spare.  

*  Went in at 7:10 to watch the Padres game, read the paper, read my book, and wash dishes.  Padres lost 3-2 in the 11th inning to the Reds, now 11-10 and lost 5 in a row.  Drat.
