Lunch with John

Wednesday, January 11, 2017
10:39 A.M.

I must leave to meet my friend John at the Chinese restaurant soon. We meet there every other Wednesday. His wife Sylvia used to come, but she doesn't join us any more. Her reason is that she wants John to do more talking, and when she's there, he doesn't talk so much. I really like to talk to Sylvia because she's a nurse and she often helps me to understand my physical problems. I wish she would start joining us again.

I have been working on my computers to get them up-to-date. Yesterday, I was going through my offline journals and I think that it's time to delete some of my writings. Plus, there are other files I no longer need. Many of them are on my MacBook, which is old and is no longer supported by Apple. I have disconnected it from my wireless router and will only use it offline because of the potential security risks in not having an updated operating system. It bothers me that Apple no longer supports my MacBook. I have an old netbook, and Microsoft updates it just fine. As a matter of fact, I upgraded the operating system from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and it works just fine. Why won't Apple do the same?

I am hoping that I have money next month so that I can replace my water heater. My son said he could get one for me at cost, but I would have to pay for installation labor costs. I thought it would cost much more than he said it would. I really hope that I don't go over budget because I want this to be taken care of next month. After that, it will be my bathroom floor.

This evening, I plan to watch more episodes of "Star Trek - Voyager". I'm into the fifth season of this TV series, which I watch on Netflix. I really enjoy it.

After lunch with John, I have to stop at the pharmacy to pick up some medicines, and then I need to go to the grocery store. That should be about it.

Peace to all!
