But y’all know that I like the hotter weather. I really should live in Yuma or Gila Bend. Or even the Mojavie Desert. (Except that is a bit too hot even for me.) Still, I do like the green around here; except when it gets so dry a fire could spread like, well, wild fire. And the trees are too damned tall! I like open sky.
Got out and made another raised bed. Since that bag of cement mix broke yesterday, I just moved it all into the hole I created in the middle of the raised bed, added another bag, and wet it down pretty good. It’ll harden and may work to keep the moles out. It may not. Don’t really care. I’m tired of building the things. (Only 2 more to go!)
I saw this headline: “Study: Larger Wine Glasses Leads To More Drinking” and two thoughts came to mind: 1) Duh! 2) How much did we pay so someone could “study” the obvious? (And a companion piece was “Larger Baby Bottles Making Fat Babies.”) I’m getting to where I can’t watch or read the “News” anymore.
Wow. Power flickered and my computer(s) shut down. Shit. It had been sprinkling a bit earlier but didn’t seem to be bad enough to flicker the power. Even looking at the real-time lightning map doesn’t show anything nearby. Hmmm … Wind does kind of kick up some. (Heard some distant booms too; kind of like artillery used to sound at Camp Pendleton.)
MCARC Wednesday Evening 2-meter Chat Net tonight. Went well except reception was in and out with the wind. After, a couple of the guys helped me test the new antenna placement. Got pretty good signal reports on 28.450 USB from some; couldn’t hear others. Still.
And that’s about it. A friend is coming over to visit for a few and by the time he leaves it’ll be past bedtime. I’m already tired from building raised-beds today. SWMBO should be home shortly too. Yay!
