Another Pretty Normal Sunday

Meaning not much going on. Well, had to call the Cops at 0210 this morning on the neighbor kids riding their quads up and down the road, giggling like girls, shooting their hand guns, and generally being asswipes. Woke our Renters up also. And our other neighbor. Renter said the Cops showed up and stayed for about 2 minutes; did a check on one of the vehicles and left. Didn’t check the half dozen other kids in the house nor check to see if they were drinking. Which they probably were.

And you can be damned sure that no one told the parents the Cops came in the middle of the night. They are the worst “parents” I’ve ever seen. Really. Absolutely no control over their kids. I swear I’m going to stay alive long enough to see their youngest kid “ride the lightning” for killing them all in their sleep some night. It’s gonna happen.

Other than that really not much happening around here. Finally got cool enough this afternoon for me to get some clothes on. Ugh. Made Chicken breasts cooked in spaghetti sauce, spaghetti, and peas for dinner. SWMBO seemed to like it.

Boiling water now to de-skin some of the tomato’s I’ve had sitting in the fridge too long. Gonna render them down to tomato paste. This’ll be a first for me.

I Been Slimed!

Watching CNN-The Sixties 05 of 10-The Long March. All I’m feeling is shame, and incredulousness, that we needed to make special laws to force an integration that should have been totally natural. But I never lived anyplace where things were violent; except near Watts during the riots. We grew up poor in Los Angeles, CA and Greenville, Miss and played with the “colored boys” more than anyone else. I guess I just never cared what color you were. Still don’t.  You’re either a decent person, or you’re a dickhead. And I don’t like dickheads whatever color they are. (Even though I’ve been accused of being a dickhead a couple of times.)

MCARC 2-meter Sunday Chat Net went really well. Had 8 check-ins and it lasted almost 40 minutes tonight. Almost 15 minutes longer than usual. Cool!


Rain. Yeah, We Need It

But that doesn’t mean I have to like it. Off & On all day. Did allow me to get some of the trash burned; so that’s good. But I like the Hot weather and being outside and things. I’m actually wearing pants today for gosh’ sake!

Getting the house straightened up a bit. Have some friends coming over at 1630 to cook dinner for us using that “Thrive” stuff. I’d really like to get into some kind of food storage (other then what we already do).

And, it’s later and the dinner was okay. Beef Stroganoff & Broccoli. Strawberry’s for desert. Yeah, it was good. So SWMBO is going over the catalog and recipes now to see what (if anything) we might want to order. Personally, I’d love to get away from TV dinners (which I eat because they’re easy and quick) and get everything that would store better in our pantry. If we lost the  power for an extended amount of time I’d be doing some emergency canning of the contents of our freezer.

Not much else going on. Doctor Who marathon on the computer while doing all the other stuff. Still raining off and on. Getting much cooler tonight than it has been in awhile. Sux! (But you knew I was going to say that!)
