I somehow got the picture frame working normally, I have no idea how, and I kept it on all day rather than risk it going back to the loop.
During my lunch I started going through more pictures to put on the frame, and I started feeling very lonely and sad, thinking about the good times in the past. That persisted most of the day.
After work I Skyped the FWiB, and that made me feel better. Then after we spoke I put my dishes from yesterday away and had dinner. Then I called the Kid, or actually, before I had a chance to, she called me. I told her I was just starting to eat dinner and could I call her back, and she agreed, so that's what I did.
We talked until the Thurber reading, and then I got off to listen to that. And then after Thurber, I called her back again and we talked until Oldest Brother called, when I got off and talked to him. Everyone is well, mostly, he did a double shift today and another one tomorrow.
And now it is time to go to bed. Tomorrow I head in through the tropical storm to the branch for my first day of grab-and-go service. At least the weather should keep people away.
And that's about all.
1. The FWiB.
2. The Kid.
3. Talking on the telephone.
4. Good books.
5. The picture frame is working... for now.
6. It's a tropical storm, not an out-and-out hurricane.
