Detours
It was supposed to be a catch-up day of paperwork and otherwork today. Not.

Various Things got me out on the road again close to 8 this morning. Spent most of the morning waiting for return calls/emails about said Various Things, which trickled in, mostly, between 11:15 and 1:30- and left me with a Mostly Dead hour from 2 until 3 before I could begin the end of the journey.

I spent it doing cardio in a remote World Gym location, so that, um, worked out- but, by then, I'd also learned the more recent of the two Bad Things that had happened during the day: Eleanor had seriously bruised her left thumb not long after I left, leading to her making, solo, the latest of our seemingly obligatory annual ER visits. (Nothing broken, but it still hurts. And I'm talking about me.)

The day ended heavier than it began: three bank runs between 3:45 and almost 5 in three different places, with a wake in between, held not far south of the Lake Ontario shoreline in Albion, NY. The memorialized, husband of a long-time online friend of ours from Rochester-Orleans County who I'd not managed to meet IRL until today.  Following those calling hours, and past 5 p.m.,  all hell broke loose on my cell about court appearances I had scheduled between July 1st and July 17th. Most of those fires are now out, but it amazes me sometimes how people can put shit off so far beyond bounds of the working day. (I even got a call from somebody else past 7 tonight about an appointment we've already got scheduled for this Friday. HUH?!?)

In the end, though, we had dinner in the back gardens on a pleasant evening; Em will be home tomorrow to join us for Sara Bareilles at Artpark; and all of these nonsenses will make more senses come the dawn:)
