Showered at 9:30 AM. Talked to Doris at 10:00 AM: Doris is well and in good spirit. She walked 9145 steps, 13.8 inches step length and symmetry was 62 %. She slept well last night. They had a nice dinner with wine and some Ginseng soup. I asked Doris to gift her Hoka shoes to Patches, since she is not using them. I told her to ask Patches to help her look for a pair of New Balance shoes with Velcro laces. The size should be on the tongue of the shoes. It is Kein’s birthday and they are going out to celebrate his birthday. But traffic in San Francisco is bad because Hu Jin Tao is in town. Evidently I got a text message from Amy SF. I had already forgotten about her and our relationship was over a long time ago. I told Doris I will be busy with GED tutoring, Art History 1 and some sewing today. Michael Santos posted my dairy on Facebook about my cutting and hemming pants for the penitentiary. Our conversation was cut short as time expired – 15 minutes time limit. Lunch was served at 10:20 AM. Luncheon menu: chicken sandwich, beans, apple and punch. Went to sewing room to hem a dozen pants before GED tutoring. GED tutoring 12:00 – 2:30 PM. Mrs. Hubbard segregated some of the student in the second class to allow students who want to learn have a quite place to study. It worked out well and trouble makers cannot harass the students who want to learn. back to the unit at 3:00 PM. Dinner was served at 3:10 PM.
