The Red Tree

Exceeding My Bandwidth

Clouds today, and it's warmer. Currently 81˚F, with the heat index at 84˚F, humidity at 67%. We're supposed to go to 88˚F this afternoon, with a possibility of thunderstorms.

I made just enough money last year that, this year, I cannot afford to pay my income tax (after paying in excess of $7k last year).

There was essentially no writing yesterday. We left here about 5:30 p.m. and headed down to Narragansett and had dinner at Iggy's. I miss the old shack at the corner of Pt. Judith and Ocean roads. The new place is like some bizarre, cleaned-up simulacrum of Iggy's, Iggy's Idealized, Food Court Iggy's, designed perhaps for a Rhode Island theme park (Lobstah Land!), complete with a huge TV mounted on one wall. Gone are the sandy floors and random bits of beach junk scattered about and the mismatched chairs and the noise and heat from the kitchen. The food is still good, but the new surroundings are enough to give one indigestion.

After dinner, we drove on down to Point Judith to watch the sunset. It was very windy and very cold. The moon was the palest sliver. I think we made it back home about 9:30 p.m.

Please have a look at the current eBay auctions. Thank you.
