Unlike television listings, all times are PST.

05:40.. Phone call from Yuma... one of my tenants set the house on fire.

06:10.. Stop for gas in San Diego, get an Egg McMuffin, fill the TravelMug with McCaffeine and hit Interstate 8.

07:25.. Ocotillo Flats, CA: "Sir, may I see your drivers license and registration please (I hear that a lot.)

08:50.. Yuma, AZ; the tenant's not hurt, (figures) but the structure's a write off. (I need a tax write-off like I need a gap down in PRGN. You might begin to see where I'm going with this.))

11:15.. I tell the waitress, "Give me a green burrito, two chicken-soft-tacos and a large Dr. Pepper to go," then eat it on the road while running down the local contractors I need.

12:10.. Maybe it was the tacos, maybe the burrito, maybe just the way I ate it all too fast, but suddenly it's deja-phueey as I lose it all.

1:30.. Clean up crew arrives at the house, I pay the foreman an advance, work starts.

2:05.. Gas up car, hit the Interstate.

2:53.. "Sir, I clocked you doing... hey, haven't I stopped you going the other way this morning?" (Yes, I recognize the friendly Gestapo smile.)

4:10.. Arrive at the infamous I-5/805 merge; 10 lanes of homesick commuters trying to merge into six at the rush hour -- 6 miles and 27 minutes later, I'm finally out of first gear.

5:02.. Back home. My wife hands me a dry martini, I sit down to relax, get online and ....what? PRGN gapped down? I check my trades, yup, stop executed this morning @10.58. Four point loss.... Well, $#it!

5:15.. I go out to the mailbox to get my mail. I wave hello to my neighbor across the street. Nice guy that he is, he waves back and says:

"Hey, how'd your dago?"

No, I didn't kill him. So, how did your day go?
