The morning began with a Senior Voice meeting (progressive politics) in downtown Cleveland, on MyCareOhio and the ACA.

I drove back to Westlake for a quick lunch, and then picked up Daniil, Lera, Helen, and Nadine, for a trip to University Circle.

We drove around the Circle a bit, and then parked in the Art Museum garage.  When we walked in, we met Daniil’s friend Erika.

We decided to add to the appearance of some exhibits by inserting ourselves!

==========================================================

Back Home, we ordered in pizza, etc.

I planned to ride my bike for a bit, but with about 5 hours on my feet, I am knackered, so I shall defer.

I drove Sharon to the Avon Lake Food Mart, where she bought dessert, and I bought 1% (fat) milk – and all this under a full moon…

(N.B.:I.M. Pei http://www.greatbuildings.com/buildings/Rock_and_Roll_Hall_of_Fame.html, as in
