This was a very relaxing day. Most of my time was spent reading at home in the morning. Then I went to D’s and read alternating with conversation for the afternoon and evening. Saw lots of nice people I like.
The musical entertainment was odd. A gigantic tall round black man with an earring showed up looking like Ving Rhames about to kill us all.

He was kind of an Indigo Guy.
