So far I've put photos on Instagram and Facebook
I spent the day at the house because we've been doing so much. Last night I was zonked and I slept until 11am. I did laundry and made part of tonight's meal. I walked into the bigger town (opposite direction from the small town) and now I'm tired. Whew!
Bought bread at a bakery on the square and conversed 100% in German. She said my German was pretty good and then asked if I was British! 🇬🇧 🇩🇪

USA Today's article began with, "As an industry, airlines received the fourth-worst score in the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) rankings of customer satisfaction. Only pay TV, social media companies and Internet service providers rank lower. Even wireless carriers and car dealers rank higher. That may not be an indictment of the industry, but it does indicate a lot of room for improvement."

Yesterday I went to Dunkin Donuts because I had a coupon burning a hole in my pocket. It was mid-afternoon on a lazy day and I was sort of close by, so I drove in and decided to hit the drive-through.
There were cars parked over to the side of the lot the way most employees seem to park, but there weren't any cars out front. The only other time I have been to this place was last year at night and they only had one or two donuts left. Plus, and don't hate on me for this because the rest of the country seems to love their coffee, I don't love their coffee.
But the coupon was for iced coffee super cheap. So there I was.
I pulled up and I sat. Waited.
No one said a word. I thought perhaps they were closed, but the sign said that from 4-6pm, iced coffee was cheap. Super cheap, in fact. In fact, the 4-6pm price for iced coffee was the price of the coupon. But no one knew I was there and I decided I didn't need the calories, so I drove off sans iced coffee.
This morning I found myself near a McDonald's, which I know for certain was open because it was clearly open with people and cars and activity and McDonald's is always open.
I drove my top-secret stealth Camry up to one of the drive through speakers.
Her: "Hello, welcome to McDonald's. May I take your order?"
Me: "I'll take a large black coffee."
I waited quite a while and finally said, "Hello?" But there was no response.
Another car pulled up to the other speaker next to me and placed their order, so I left.
I should lease the car to the government for secret missions.
I listen to the radio most of the time. The classical station isn't coming in anymore and that annoys me, especially in the morning because that's when I prefer classical.
I've decided that I don't care. They both have merits. One thing about a window seat is you don't have to get up for someone else to go to the bathroom.
