**YESTERDAY. I published my daily blog and 2 collections if tweets. 

It was cool with no rain and fairly high winds when I went outdoors to spread 

the Weed and Feed in places where wire weeds and other weeds persisted. I also

spread some of the 13-13-13 fertilizer, but I decided that I could do that the very 

last thing before winter. Although the cornfields have been harvested, I decided

not to burn the weeds and dead dried plants in the fire pit because of the fairly 

high winds. 

After showering and dressing, I drove everyone to Orrville to Restoration Thrift 

where I purchased a winter coat for $5 and an alarm clock for $1.50. After 

paying for both and leaving a tip of $1 and the change, I went next door to Save 

A Lot purchasing blackberries at $1.99 a container, 2 bags of chips for $1, a glass

jar of Gia Russa Giardiniera mixed vegetables mild, a plastic tray of garlic and 

some other things too numerous to mention. 

Then to Goodwill where I remained seated in the VW, not needing anything else. 

I then drove to China Buffet to celebrate my birthday and then to CVS and back 

to the house.

**TODAY. 3:14 AM 10/28/2017 EDT. Just got up to meet a new day. To sleep at

8:00 PM last night means I slept about 7 hours and will not go to sleep again 

until around 8:00 PM tonight. Most of the others in the house sleep 10 to 12 

hours, so I'm alone most of the day. 

The weather forecast calls for high and low temperatures of 44°and 29° with 

rain, a relative humidity of 78% and winds at 7 miles per hour. The high 

temperature for the next 7 days will be a high of 60° on Thursday with rain on 

Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. If I can get outdoors after daylight comes,

and it has not rained yet, I hope to finish the spreading of the Weed and Seed 

and burning the dried plants and weeds in the fire pit. 


**As much as I tried, I could not prevent people from finding out the date of my

birthday which was yesterday. 

A long time ago when I was very young I crawled under the bed when company 

came according to my parents. So, for the most part, I grew up being shy and 

avoiding notoriety. 

Yesterday I received many birthday wishes from many people and at least 1 


My quote of the day on October 27, 2016 was "Birthday celebrations are for 

young people and not for old people like me."



Happy Birthday Forrest! Bring out the cake and the balloons, let’s celebrate this 

special day! 🎉

We wish you a splendid year, and look forward to filling it with postcards!

Postally yours, 


Birthday wishes from Google on their search page and my reply: 

Thanks for the birthday wishes Google. May you live a 1000 years or more 

with continuing success and profitability.  

I've received many birthday wishes from my friends on Facebook. I replied to 

maybe 10 so far, but I'm way behind on replying to others. 

Hopefully, I will complete my replies to those on Facebook before my next 

birthday on October 27, 2018. Just kidding.
