Nice Nights on the Town

After a busy half day at the car rental firm last Friday (29 Mar.), I was in west St. Louis for Stress Free Fridays. Specifically, that week's happy hour was at Troy's Jazz Gallery, a jazz club and bar. I had a nice time there socializing some and listening to a fine performance of jazz. Since I had to work the next morning, I had to leave fairly early, but it was time well spent.

The next day (30 Mar.), I worked a morning shift at the car rental firm, came home to change, then was at the Scott Gallagher Complex for a pair of girls soccer games. I ran lines on these under 14 matches, which were played in the rain part of the time. No problems with the artificial turf, but I did get a bit wet. The games went well, then I had dinner at the Trainwreck Saloon in West Port Plaza.

Last Monday (1 Apr.) found me at work. I'm now pulling three full days a week, plus every other Saturday. Mondays are usually busy at the firm, and this week was no exception. Still, it's nice to have a stable schedule for work. The next day (2 Apr.), I took time off from work to get a cavity filled by the dentist. That work--after more extensive dental work done two weeks before--means my mouth's in good shape for a good while. Right after work Tuesday, I ran the IPMS/St. Louis meeting in Creve Coeur.

Wednesday night (2 Apr.), after an off day from work, I was at One 19 North Tapas and Wine Bar in Kirkwood for the Midtown Mingles Meetup group. About nine of us were there and we had a great time socializing, and munching on tapas dishes. It was my first time in that place and with tapas, and I liked it a lot. Very fine bunch of people to socialize with.

Back to work Thursday (4 Apr.), then off the next day. Early last night, I picked up Rick from the airport. He and my two other brothers will be in town this weekend to help my parents celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. It's a great milestone to reach in this age.

I'm co-hosting Writer's Block later today (10 am PT/Noon CT); here's a link to the show: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/autistic-people-/2013/04/06/writers-block-10am-pstradio-drama-11am-pst.
