I Be Old. Fat. Old. And Klutzy.

Tanya RobertsActually, today started out with me sleeping late. Finally got up at 0600. Damn! Must be getting old or something. I didn’t even realize that SWMBO had climbed out of bed to get ready for work.

Not a whole lot going on either. Felt lazy so, when I went to get mail, I continued on to Safeway for a breakfast sandwich. Sausage & egg on an English Muffin. It was okay. Nothing to write home about though.

Don’t really feel like doing anything today. I will; just don’t feel like it. Just realized that the days I don’t really feel like doing anything are usually cloudy, cooler, days. Wonder why that is?

In the mail I got a notice of “Important Safety Recall” whereby the “Tensioner cable” on the driver’s seat could break in an accident. There is presently NO fix; but they’ll let me know when it becomes available. Meanwhile, I could be ejected through the windshield in an accident. Luckily, I’m not one to have accidents.

Oops. Guess I should rephrase that: As long as I don’t use a screwdriver, I’m not prone to have accidents.

I did get off my ass, somewhat, figuretively, and get the MCARC Insurance renewed (online) and a check made out for the PO Box for the next year. Updated the spreadsheet and money program I use to track our finances. It really doesn’t take a whole lot of time to do the Club finances; I just put it off as long as I can for some reason.

Went to the NMARES monthly meeting. Was fun. But, it’s time for this Old Man to go lay down and read awhile. Which means checking Tumblr.

Been Having This Pain In My Right Leg

Sometimes I Miss My MSFSX CollectionComes on of a sudden and I can barely walk. I don’t remember injuring it and the only thing “unusual” I’ve done lately is drive for 3 days. SWMBO said something about Deep Vein Thrombosis and wants me to go get it checked out. Pain hasn’t happened today (so far but it’s early) so I’m kind of iffy about going to the Urgent Care place here in town. Not to mention the expense! (So much for “free” medical for the rest of my life.)

Other than that it’s too early for anything to be going on. One of the hazards of being Old and Retired. Should get off my fat old ass and fix myself some breakfast, I suppose.

New WebCam came in today and is already hooked up to this Windows 7 VM and Skype installed. It works pretty good. At least as far as the picture goes. Now to add my Uncle (and SWMBO) to see if it is really going to work well.


Skype Profile PicKeep meaning to get off my ass. Worked on the hole I’m putting in the wall some. Got the hole and stud completely cut out. Time to cut the wire, but, I ain’t doing that until SWMBO is going to be home “just in case.” I’ve been bitten by electricity enough times to know it can kick your ass when  you least expect it to. I want someone around that knows CPR!

Decided to take the easy way out for dinner: Fried Tilapia (in bacon grease!) on a bagel and real crispy french fries. (Not those limp noodle POS fries SWMBO likes.)

Been uploading our pictures to Google Drive manually since none of the “apps” seem to want to do it. In Linux or Windows. They do the directories just fine; they just don’t upload the pictures in the directories. Ah well.

MCARC 10-meter Tuesday Chat Net went well. I actually heard half the others!
