Gassed up my car.

Deposited checks. Had to go to two different machines. The first one was having trouble scanning the checks.

I got food from Harmony restaurant and took it to Ashley’s house. Penelope fell asleep right before arriving at the restaurant. We decided to go home and eat there so she could rest.

I liked this horse at Harmony.

The saddle was interesting on the horse.

And this tree bark.

Studied Portuguese! Cada dia um pouco mais.

Met up with the Kendalls at Hippo Hop to watch Penelope have fun!

Then went to FBC Doraville to sort supplies for the big event on December 29th with Campus Crusade for Christ. Fifteen items in thirty bags.

Portuguese! LIVE! Colonoscopy!

Tim A. Cummins @ 10:37 pm  

Studied Portuguese infinitives.

Released a new edition of Verbal Surgery -516- “Speak Bear!”
Just click on the title and GROOVE!

Uploaded to Facebook.

Very foggy day!

I’m learning a section of a song by Walk the Moon.

I am my own Sanctuary
I am my own Hero
I am my own Teacher
I am my own Best Friend
I am my own Friday Night
I am my own Love of my Life
I am my own Way Out
I am my own Sanctuary
I am my own Sanctuary

It reminds me of Talking Heads when I hear it. A certain poetry.

Took Kathy for her colonoscopy today. Took about five hours in all!

She had some polyps. So she has to go back every three years. We will hear if there was anything in the biopsy in a week.

Studied Portuguese while I waited.

She was pretty sleepy for a while.

Went to eat at Sweet Baby Janes.

Then to Home Medical to pick up another hose for Kathy’s cpap.
