But I didn't get to sleep until after 11... (Back in the '80s, we generally arose at 4 -- Tom to get to his teaching job in Massachusetts, me to get to work by 6 a.m. so I could leave at 2 p.m.)

This morning Jeff and I (mostly Jeff) got another section of plywood down. (I did my part before he got there.)

This afternoon Tom and I and three physical therapists (count 'em, THREE! -- I think they just wanted an excuse to be outside in the sun) practiced getting into my car from a wheelchair and back out again several times. It got a bit easier each time, too. Then I took Tom for a ride, a long loop to enjoy the weather and all the flowering trees and shrubs. Everything is over a month early, all blooming together. The trees that aren't white, or pink, or red were leafing out in chartreuse.

Headed first to Dover Point Road at the other end of the road that Langdon Place is on, then turned back towards downtown Dover, up past the hospital and on towards Somersworth. Then turned around and stopped at McDonald's to get Tom some coffee. He was tired by that time with his practicing and the PT workout he got this morning, so we headed back to Langdon Place.

Not sure if it was the weather or MY exertions of this morning, but I was pretty tired, too. Came home and took a nap.
