I hung out with Mike on Sunday. Mike’s partner was in Wyoming visiting family so I help him run a few errands. Mike still only has one hip as his surgery is scheduled for the end of the month. I made Mike put the top up on his BMW because I didn’t want to get roasted on red leather seats on a sunny 95° day.
