no wedding today..
no wedding today..

Our power came back on at about 0430 (off about 8 hrs), and it was clock reset time when we awoke.

We went to breakfast at Perkins, and then to Giant Eagle to buy replacements for the contents of our refrigerator

We emptied out the fridge, put out the trash early, and restocked.

I studied Russian, and had a lesson with Daniil at Starbucks Westgate.

We grilled out burgers, and had them with corn on the cob and potato salad for dinner.

We followed the Warriors win, and they face the Cavs.

Sharon and I prepared for the cleaners, and then I trained legs and shoulders at Tru Core.

Lunch was our usual lunch bunch, and then I had a Russian lesson with Daniil.

Brad came over, and we made some progress on Mini, before heading to the Monthly LocoBrits meeting.
