Here it is 8:00 p.m. and still haven’t had dinner.

I shouldn’t go to bed hungry as last time I did that I had to eat in middle of the night.
At least I have been sleeping 7 to 8 hours per night for the past week and am doing pretty well, all things considered.
Tomorrow I am going to my cousin’s funeral and plan to stick close to home otherwise. I went out to get my glasses repaired and luckily they were able to straighten them out without them breaking. I wear them around my neck on a string and I forgot to take them off before going to bed a couple of days ago. Apparently I rolled over on them during the night and really bent them out of shape. So glad I didn’t ruin them. Will have to be more careful from now on.
As for my cousin, he is also my godfather and he was a very gentle person who was so kind and thoughtful. He lived a very quiet life and always was good to his relatives. He lived to age 90, so there is still hope for me to live to a ripe old age, too. I have many fond memories of my cousin Ronnie as I was growing up. He was a librarian all his life and he seemed to remember everything, even what my mother served for dinner on any given date. He was one of those people who had a photographic memory and he was always happy to help me out by phone when I had problems with my homework in high school and college. He was my private Siri before Siri was a thing!
