2018 is here. I hope it is better than 2017. So far so good. We spent the evening watching Dick Clark's Rockin New Year's Eve. Thomas had to work at Dominos. He got off about 9. He said it was not as busy as he thought it would be. Rachel went out drinking with friends. I drove her to a house and she has one of her friend's brothers be the DD.

Rachel graduated from college with a Bachelor's in Education. The University of Kentucky held the ceremony in the arena where the basketball team plays. It was pretty nice. The Jumbotron had close-ups of the conference of diplomas. After the conclusion there were fireworks.

Thomas was t-boned on Avenue B at 25th street a couple of weeks ago. The guy was from Alliance and evidently in a hurry and lost. He claimed to his insurance Thomas ran a stop sign, but there are no stop signs on Avenue B for miles. The car is totaled, and the guys insurance company is picking it up today.

Last night was another dream. In this one April and I were contestants on a competition show like The Amazing Race. The task fell to me to perform a dance, but I could not do it. I kept getting more and more frustrated. That frustration has followed me all day. I've been coaching Thomas's indoor soccer team for about three years now. I wanted to have them practice shots on goal because I felt that was what was lacking last year. I still enjoyed last year. We did five tournaments and made second place in three.

I also tried to set up the old phones we have as cameras, along with the Kindle. That didn't work as well because I had trouble controlling the cameras and they would not stay where I set them.
I created a time lapse of the whole video. It is jerkly because I needed to adjust the camera to keep the sun in view (stupid rotating earth).
The moment of the eclipse was awesome.
