Saturday so far

I went to bed a little before 2:00 a.m. and woke at 9:00 a.m.  I should have gone to bed earlier.

I have an editing job to do.

A few hours later: I finished the editing job.  Mom and Dad and I are talking about going out to a restaurant that offers a free meal to veterans on Veterans' Day.

Later: We went out to a local Applebee's where Dad had a free dinner and Mom and I had the two entrees and an appetizer for $25 special.  Mom had ribs.  I had the shrimp wonton stir fry, which was spicy.  Dad saw a lot of his veteran buddies.  The restaurant played the various armed forces anthems.  They had a young woman sing the Star-Spangled Banner (badly).  Everyone stood for that, and some sang along.  No one knelt.  I can understand the kneeling as a protest, but it seems to make more people angry than have them get the point.  (To my privileged viewpoint, anyway.)  It was a nice night out.

I reread The Gilded Scarab and started reading The Jackal's House, but was dozing off early and went to bed.
