6/18/2019 a walk and some tid bits from around

I will start with a little from yesterday. I usually go to Star Bucks for iced tea and a couple hours of reading/watching my fellow humans going about their lives. There are a couple guys from my generation that are regulars as am I. I have casually said hi in passing. Yesterday I was at …
