Golden Slumbers

Began a cloudy morning with a quick breakfast and a ride to work from a neighbor. I got in with plenty of time...but as it turned out, I could have been infinitely late. It got a little busy around 12:30-1 PM. Other than that, we were dead almost the entire day. I spent the first couple of hours pushing the five carts outside that needed to be done and the rest of my shift filling spray bottles with cleaning liquid, returning cold items, and standing around bored. 

At least it wound up being a nice day to push carts. By the time I got off at 3, the sun was out, and it was a hot and windy day. Took me a little while to get Uber, 13 minutes, but they were on time when they did get there. No traffic either way; I was home within five minutes.

As soon as I got in, I went straight upstairs and into bed. I am still so wiped out. It's been a long couple of months. I'm definitely appreciating that I'm finally getting more chances to rest. Napped for almost two hours and felt a bit better afterwards.

Did some writing after that. Charles and Brett follow the Jabberwock to a cave in the side of a mountain. Neither especially want it to burn them to a crisp, but they also want to find the Vorpal Sword and get out of Limbo. Charles leads Brett in while Brett laments the state her clothes are in.

Broke for dinner at 6:30. Watched a very cute episode of Match Game '74 while eating leftovers. One of Allen Ludden's answers were so bad, Gene tore it up and handed it to Betty White and her mother Tess in the audience! Later, Allen proved to be a man way ahead of his time with his answer to "Walking __" in the Audience Match. It may have been a little obscure to audiences then, but nowadays, thanks to a certain hit show on AMC, would likely be the top answer...

Started to make my bed and strip the sheets during Match Game PM. I have no idea where they kept digging up these really tall contestants. In this case, we had a contestant who was 6'8. Gene quickly told him when he asked him if he wanted A or B, he could have anything he wanted! 

Finished putting the summer sheets and quilt on the bed while watching another new episode of Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood. The Neighborhood of Make Believe just got a pool, and Daniel's very excited! Queen Sarah, Mrs. Tiger, and lifeguard Prince Tuesday remind him and Prince Wednesday about how rules keep us safe and why "Daniel Follows the Rules of the Pool." He's also excited about joining Queen Sarah, Katerina, and Miss Elaina for "Daniel's First Swim Class," especially getting to blow bubbles in the water! Katerina's upset when a storm rolls in and they have to clear out before she can blow bubbles, but as Prince Tuesday reminds them, being in the water during a thunderstorm really isn't a good idea.

Another neighbor came over and got the chain back on my bike while the show was on. He wasn't able to tighten it, though. I probably will have figure out how to get to Cherry Hill for that. 

Finished the night online after a shower with The Love Boat. Gopher's singing "The Spider Serenade" when he falls for a lady (Jill St. John) who begged him to squish a spider in her cabin, before he realizes she's married. A young man (James MacArthur) wonders if having a "Next Door Wife" is such a bad thing when his ex (Joanna Pettet) gets the room next to him and his fiancĂ©e (Susan Buckner). Two cruise ship executives and former middleweight champs (Milton Berle and Alan Hale Jr.) fought each other years ago, but knocked out the referee. They want to settle things now...but learn that "The Harder They Fall" when Captain Steubing ends up in the middle of their feud.
