Gonna Be Another Warm Day! Cool!

Started out pretty normal and pretty much stayed that way up until now (1435). Had to get dressed to make a run into town to return movies to Safeway (I still miss Blockbuster) and get gas for the truck. That changed soon as I got home.


Got out and gave the Truck it’s annual washing. Except I think I missed last year so it was really past due. Looks good. Not too many bangs and scratches for a 9 year old truck that just went over 100k miles.

Watered the garden and picked off the ripe cherry tomato’s. Toured the back 40. About to go out and collect some more rocks OR finish painting the deck railing. Haven’t decided which yet. In either case it’s Hot out there and I don’t want to waste it.

Really worked up a sweat collecting rocks this afternoon. Was fun. Neighbors kinda freaked to see a naked fat old guy out in the driveway with a shovel. Luckily they drive by only occasionally! I’m so glad we live out in the country.


Not much else going on. SWMBO is home and has her dinner made. I’ve had my dinner earlier. Was watching “Amazing Spiderman 2” but now into “Planet 51.”  Forgot all about the local Nets tonight.

Having some pain in my Left chest. II ‘m fairly sure it’s from overexerting myself today. No other symptoms (shortness of breath, diaphoresis, or any real fluttering) so I’m just going to take a chill pill and go from there. If it gets any worse I’ll have SWMBO take me to the hospital. Thank Goodness I’m Not on Obamacare!

The “New” Doctor

Was interesting. You expect a newly regenerated Doctor to be a bit Nutso. I want to see what kind of person he turns into. Like his accent (VERY Scottish. Probably a good thing Amy isn’t still around. None of the rest of us would be able to understand the dialog!). Almost cried during the phone scene at the end. (Yeah, I’m a softie. Thought it was really neat for Matt to do that scene.) Other than that: Dinosaurs in London, Organ stealing Droids, A Lizard Lady and her wife, A Centaran, Clara & The Doctor. What’s not to love?!?

Here’s my bounty from the garden for today; so far. I have produced a butt-ton of green (bell) peppers this year. I have a lot chopped up and frozen for later when we need them for something. And the Cherry Tomato’s are going nuts too. Never planted them before and am surprised at their prolific output. All the Roma’s are getting huge too. Now if they’d only start turning pink…

New Camera Takes Great Video. But It's MOV Format.

SWMBO made dinner tonight and it was her usual excellent meal. We had some of the Brussels Sprouts and, though a bit undercooked for me, were still delicious.

And that’s pretty much our day around here. Moved a lot of rocks around. Mowed some. Pretty much anything I could do to stay outside while I can. SWMBO mowed some and took to trimming that tree at the Electric Meter box. Just enjoyed the Wx and hope the rest of the week is just as nice. Really dreading the onset of Fall/Winter. This has been one of the best Summer’s for Wx we’ve had all year! No Shit!

My Mission Tomorrow. (Should I choose To Accept It.)

MCARC 2-meter Chat Net in a couple of hours. Think I’ll chill and watch something until then.

Net went well, but quick. Only 5 check-ins and everybody was semi-somnambulant from dinner and the heat. Ah well.
