Let’s Get This Week Started!

Downpour woke me up @ 0700. I’m a light sleeper anyway, but, it was coming down hard. Sounded like a highway on the roof. Except there wasn’t any screeching of wheels, honking of horns, nor people yelling “What the fucks wrong with you!?!” Yeah, it was pretty loud.


So I got up cause once I’m awake I have to get up or I’ll get a headache. And a headache is no way to spend Sunday if you can help it. Strange dream before waking up. Again. Something military and me wearing a white t-shirt, boxers, black shoes, and doing a lot of running. Which clued me in that it was a dream; I don’t run anymore. Too old. Too fat. Too out of shape. Smoked way too long.


Wow. Seems that rain that ran through this morning left a lot of thunder & lightning over on the other side of the water. Cool, for them. Lots of snow in the passes but we should all switch to rain for the next few days. They say Thanksgiving looks dry.

SWMBO and I took our friends computer back to her and came the “long” way back along the sound from Union. Nice being out with her and the Wx was fairly nice too. Sunny! When we got home she made dinner (shrimp alfresco & green beans) and even helped me clean up the kitchen. She’s really the nicest wife I have!


Not much else going on. Had to surface mount the new medicine cabinet we got for my bathroom cause there are a lot of pipes in the walls where I’d want to mount it. At least I didn’t cut a huge hole and was able to mount the new cabinet over the hole I did cut.

MCARC 2-meter Chat Net went really well. Lots of the guys saw lightning and heard thunder at their places this morning. Not me though…

Don’t Stick A Sharp Stick In Your Eye!

Mostly SSDD. SWMBO is off to the Genealogy Library (in my truck) so I’ve spent some time playing with my (many!) Virtual Machines; getting them updated and all. Sun came out for awhile so the Dog and I went for a tour of the back 40. Still rather cool out. Everything is still pretty much soaked. Oh, Joy.

Too Cool! Real Planes To Shoot Down.

SWMBO is bringing home our friend, Mary, who’s laptop is infected with a virus or root kit; which they expect me to fix. Downloaded Komodo and we’ll see if that works.

Which seems to be working okay. Already found 2 “threats.” Started it scanning before heading out for our regular Saturday date.

At Home Depot, SWMBO bought me a medicine cabinet for my bathroom before taking me to Qdoba’s for dinner. After which we went to COSTCO for “stuff.” Including a set of new (heavy duty) shelves for the Pantry. Add on our usual stop at Safeway and it was a pretty busy 4 hours or so.

Mary’s computer is still scanning. Probably will be most of the night. Ah well.


Nothing else going on around here. Think I’ll just chill for the rest of the evening.
