the Batteries and friend

she lives near here. our path is her path. the cctv watching her watches us. we live in g. we have lived here all our lives. she passes in an hour or so. we pass in the street later, around 5. my wife will nod. i will nod. she will too. g has been improved. g has been developed. we knew it before. we know it now. work is available. we shop at i. we shop at m, also. we buy things we had never heard of 10 years ago. she often goes in i. we see her. she buys similar things to us. we watch for the sales.
