Left to my own devices, I would probably not see a sunrise. I am not a morning person. However, working all night and driving home in the morning allows me the privilege of some awesome sunrises. This particular sunrise was Friday morning, after a week of work.
The week was uneventful, other than some vigorous nights at work where every muscle ached when I finally got home. Advil no longer works for the joint pain in my shoulders, it only serves to upset my stomach; so I guess it is “grin, and bear it”.
Liz and I have been attending the local auction every Saturday night. Tonight’s deals were ten pounds of drywall screws for $6 and a nice chaise lounge for $8. Also, five milk crates for $7, and a five gallon water cooler for $8.
After the auction, as is ritual, we stopped at Captain’s for a few beers. They were having a fundraiser for a regular that has colon cancer and no health insurance. It is now midnight, and I am still on my night schedule. I am enjoying a cigar and a cold beer on the patio as I am still wide awake.
