2. Daylight Saving Time ended yesterday morning. I saw the time change on my cell phone. It was weird, I woke up and 1:58 AM and went back to sleep at 1:02 AM. I guess it was my own time warp.

3. It was tough to stay awake last evening. It was dark so early. The dark season has arrived.

4. Work on the basement project continues. We cleaned things up a lot and made the space livable. We even watched a TV show from the room last evening.

5. Lucas was a great help yesterday as the wine closet was repopulated. He enjoyed putting the wine bottles back into the wine rack. He was very careful and we appreciated the help.

6. Election Day is tomorrow. Vote or don't complain about the outcome.

7. For those counting with me, 19 completed and 25 to go. I hit the halfway point this week.

8. I watched the sun rise yesterday. I was reminded about how vibrant the colors of the autumn are against a crystal blue sky. The trees have donned their party costumes to celebrate the last party before winter arrives.

11. Today in History. On this day in 1994, George Foreman, age 45, becomes boxing’s oldest heavyweight champion when he defeats 26-year-old Michael Moorer in the 10th round of their WBA fight in Las Vegas. More than 12,000 spectators at the MGM Grand Hotel watched Foreman dethrone Moorer, who went into the fight with a 35-0 record. Foreman dedicated his upset win to “all my buddies in the nursing home and all the guys in jail.”
