Today was a beautiful and hot day in Kansas City. It was perfect pool weather. After my tech meeting it was kind of cloudy so I thought I wouldn't be able to lay out, but by the afternoon it had cleared up.
I love driving into work on the weekends because the highways and most of downtown are not busy at all. I met my weekend/night supervisor for breakfast before the meeting. As I got off the highway there was a guy standing there with a sign saying he was homeless and hungry. When I pulled up next to him I told him I was going to the Denny's that was one block away and if he would walk up there I would buy him breakfast. By the time I got parked and walked in Kevin was waiting for me at the front door. We talked while he waited for his order. He told me he became homeless after his brother died. He said he did not handle the death well and knew he had mental health issues but didn't know where to get help. Kevin has been homeless for 6 years; literally living under a bridge. I can only imagine what that is like. I gave Kevin a few places he could go for free mental health services and he was on his way. As he left he thanked me for breakfast and told me where he sleeps in case I ever need anything. I often will see a homeless person and want to stop and just talk with them. We all need someone to talk to every once in a while.
Miss Sadie is doing so well. MJ dropped her off at my work this morning, so my techs were surprised that we had a special guest. She did so well during the meeting; in fact she was better behaved then a couple of my techs. As we walked up to the apartment she remembered which door was mine. When I opened the door both Sadie and Sophie were so excited to see each other. I am once again reminded at how Sophie is not very good at sharing. Boy she gets upset when I show any kind of affection to Sadie.
I am wanting to find a good book for me to read, so what are you guys reading this summer. It's been so long since I have just sat down and read so I am pretty excited that my interest in reading is coming back, but I have no idea what books are out there.
Did you guys realize what today's date is:
Pretty cool, huh?
