Great day off  
Today has been wonderful. I have been feeling pretty good the last few days and had a feeling that I'd have good endurance today for going to Colt Creek State Park. But before that we went to IHOP like usual and got some bad news. We are friends with a couple that goes there. We saw them every Weds. But we haven't seen them in a long time. Chris asked one of the waitresses today if they knew where Betty and Steve were. Well Steve died. That just really sucks. Old age. I have a few older friends. I have friends in their 70-90s. I worry about losing these friends this way. And it finally happened to me. I feel sorry for Betty. Crappy news and hard to believe I won't ever see him again. He was so nice.

But I cheered up quickly enough and the rest of the day was so nice. We went to walgreens and I got some new earbuds. Chris lost his and the ones I had were green like the ones he had. So I got some blue ones and gave him my green ones. He loves bright green.

We came home got some stuff to take to the park then headed off. We'd never gone there so early so it was neat to see the lighting be so different. No Meadowlarks this time but I saw a bald eagle right away. We stopped on the side of the road and there were so many birds of prey everywhere, eagles, vultures and hawks. We got on top of the truck and took pics. I brought my binoculars and watched mostly and let Chris do all the camera work. He has a better camera anyway. Without a real lens my camera is no good for bird photography. The only complaint is it's always been so darn cold when we go to this park. I so want to go when I don't need pants and a jacket. I did very well though as far as being able to walk. I lasted hours before I started to hurt. We got to explore a new area for a bit. But then I couldn't do it anymore so I needed the wheel chair. Good thing we brought that because then I was able to stay another hour or so. I only got a few photos with my small camera but it was nice to get some watching in with my binoculars. And either my camera lens is lying or camera lenses and binoculars aren't measured the same. My camera is a 16x zoom. My binoculars are an 8x. Well I can get closer to the birds with my binocs than with my camera fully zoomed. That's not right.

When we got home I was really hurting and tired. I hope this won't set me back so I will rest tomorrow and perhaps the next day. We then watched movies and hung out together. It's been so nice.

OH almost forgot. I had a very funny dream last night I woke up laughing from. I hope I can remember it.

Ok so for some reason I was supposed to meet with Napoleon (yes the French conqueror) and give him a bunch of diamonds. I brought the sack full of diamonds to him and starting putting them on the ground. Everything started to turn white. I'm not sure what happened after this. Then some pirates appeared. I guess they wanted the diamonds. But we all sat down at a bench to have a feast. I got up and realized I was Ophidius. Ha, I guess I was helping out a fellow Frenchman. I went to get some pie and when I came to my seat there were three impish yellow witches sitting across and beside from me on the table. Oh gosh this is the funny part and I can't remember. I think I insulted the one next to me about being so ugly and she said something like, "You're the little troll that's been going around bothering everyone." I think I proudly admitted to that. "You recognize me! Yes!"

Ok this sucks. That's not exactly what was said. I actually forgot the punch line but I started to laugh at this point and woke myself up on accident. I even woke Chris up I was laughing so much. Shoot I should have posted this this morning.

I'm glad that you had such a very good day and I hope your back is okay tomorrow. How cool to see so many birds of prey.

That is sad news about Steve and I feel for Betty. I guess he lived his life to the full and he had a great time until the end.

I think it's cool for you to have friends from all ages and I do, too :)

That was a funny dream. That is cool that you were Ophidius! I hate it when I forget part of the dream, too. But I hope it left you with a happy feeling.

Thanks. It was so fun. I will take it easy today. Hopefully I will recover.
Yeah I had not expected that. No wonder I have not seen them there. He always seemed happy and was very easy going. Still sad.
Yeah, to me it's the person's maturity level and that goes beyond age.
Yes it was nice to be one of my characters. Yes shame I forgot the best part.

I think it was worth it, even if you have to rest today.

Yes, sad for you to lose a friend like that.

I think compatibility is the key, no matter what people's ages are. People who judge people by their age are missing out.

Yeah, and I wasn't expecting it. Hard to believe I won't see him again.

Yes it was still a wonderful day. Haha, yes I love picking up new tech even if it's simple stuff like this. The winter birds are still down right now so it's cool to see so many birds around.

Yeah I hope I'm not set back because of this.

Hehe it was great. Glad you liked it. So much zany stuff. I think it's funny this is a normal fun dream for me but many people these elements would have been of a nightmare. It was very wacky.

That's great that you saw a lot of birds of prey in the park. :D Seems like you had a pretty good day overall.

Haha your dream sounds awesome, that's great that you were with Napoleon and you were hiding all those diamonds in the ground. And you were Ophidius... I suppose this isn't a surprise. :D Oh course you'd help the French by being the Frenchy. What? Yellow imp witches? Well isn't that peculiar. And you were proud to admit of being "that little troll", HA typical Ophidius. :D I'm not surprised that you woke up laughing, haha.

Also... yay Picard icon. >:3

It was a great day. Would love to do it again tomorrow but I think it will rain all day. So we'll probably stay home. The house needs work anyway.

I wish I could remember more of this dream. It was so funny I did wake up laughing. Yeah I was Ophidius helping Napoleon. Had to help my fellow Frenchman haha. Ophidius is such a jerk.

Ha, yeah that's the one from DA.
