It was a rainy day today but the rain slowed to a slight drizzle in the evening so I thought I'd go for some geocaches. I went to the butt end of Ringwood State Park. This is the back-door access via the Cooper Union Trail. I parked at the Presbyterian church and headed into the woods on the trail. This area is supposed to be hilly but the trail is a gradual incline. I found Little Cache - Big Log, A View of Nothing, and Tree Of Manybutts. Then it got dark and started raining again, so I turned around and went back. There are more geocaches further in but I'll get those starting from the park end of the trail another day.

After my hike, it started raining heavily so I figured I should go to Palisades Center this evening and use the underground garage so I wouldn't get any wetter. Used the returning customer discount at Johnny Rockets again and had a Smoke House Single and a root beer float. I noticed that the Disney Store had a buy-one-get-one-free sale on all plush toys, so I got two 22" Bolt plush toys. Of course, buy-one-get-one is not a deal if I'm going to end up giving one away but what the hey? So you might see one of them at a charity auction this year.

Also, my eyeglasses broke this afternoon. One of the arms just snapped off. Not to worry though. I'd been ordering eyeglasses online last year to use up my FSA, so I just started using one of several spares I had lying around. I stopped worrying about losing or breaking eyeglasses when the replacement cost fell below $30 per pair. If you've been paying hundreds of dollars for a pair of eyeglasses, you really should investigate alternative sources.


1. What is your favorite fizzy, bubbly drink?
Root beer.

Hot root beer? No, hot chocolate would be better.

Ice cream in coffee
1. Get ice cream.
2. Put it in coffee.

I made it myself at Old Country Buffet.
