It's a beautiful day today. I drove around the lake with the top down, and it was sublime. Since my car blew up it's been running better. It's getting a lot better gas mileage. I don't know what they did, but I'll take it. This was the second day of my mum's estate sale. I went over to determine what the disposition of the remainder should be. It's lots of books, a little chest of drawers, a few mahogany chairs -- but there's a chance some more things will've gone by now as they weren't finished. They are very nice people. They reckoned they would box things and I'd decide, then if I thought it best, they'll take them to the Goodwill. Nice of them to give me a little time. Then I took my little sister to get her heart pills and groceries. She has all the checks for her bank account. I'd asked Deb to get them off her, but Deb didn't. Thanks a lot. When she loses her apartment I'll send her over to live with Deb. She has so far refused to give them to me. Mother's Day. I took E and Joe for pizza Friday and Joe said he was going to have dinner with his mother because she is alive and so he could. I said, "Gee, thanks, Joe" -- he cracks me up. Ann King came over yesterday and we spent time photographing a Pakistani lacquered window, then putting the pictures onto a cd. As well as goofing around gabbing and laughing. I'd been waiting for the dryer repairman, and he showed up at about 5:25. Actually, he, his wife, and a misc. dude ALL came in to fix the dryer. Then they had to borrow a flashlight. I got a distinctive oddball feeling from them. Not like they'd break in and steal stuff, but just like I didn't have a thing in common with them and had no faith in their knowledge and abilities. Dryers are about the simplest machines around, so they could do that, but that's about all I'd let them touch. I was glad when they left.
