Dang Dog Bit Me Yesterday!

Been “playing” with WorldEditor (WED) and X-Plane these past couple of days; trying to make the Bremerton Airport (KPWT) more “realistic.” Well, I don’t know how “realistic” it looks, but it now has the approximate shaped buildings in the approximate positions and a couple of parked Airplanes and such. Started X-Plane so many times that I finally had to reboot cause everyting was running too slow.


But, it seems I pretty much need to reboot Linux every couple of day anyway cause it gets to lagging so much I get frustrated at the waiting. Windows was pretty much the same way too; so I really don’t have anything to bitch about.

Been spending a lot of time reading. In the past week I’ve pretty much read a book a day. Just got back into a reading mood. Still working my way through Anne McCaffrey but will probably switch to King or Koontz or Clancey here real soon.

Not much going on around here. Been mostly too wet (way wet) to get out for more than a 10-minute walk. And I don’t want to get out in it because my damned cold keeps hanging on. About get my chores done and I’m pooped. (I miss summer!)


The Dog: he and I were playing with his ball when he rolled it under SWMBO’s “Lost All Hope Chest” in the big room. When I reached under to get it he freaked out and attacked my hand and when I jerked it back out of his way he went for my face. Got part of my ear. Bled like a stuck pig. I’ve never seen him this violent.

I wapped him (out of pain), asked him “Who The Fuck Do You Think You Are?” Then BD’d him. He knows once he gets called a Bad Dog that means no cookie when I go to bed. Poor him. I’m the one with the freakin’ bandaid on my ear. Little fucker takes his ball serious!


Anywho, in case y’all were wondering: that’s pretty much it. It’s getting pretty windy, and nasty, outside. SWMBO is going to take me to the Mexican Restaurnt tomorrow when she gets home from the Genealogy Library tomorrow and I’m abou tto hit the rack and read a bit.

We Be All Pooped Out!

Wednesday the Septic alarm went off. Shit! That means the Septic is too full and something is not working right. Just what we need. Immediately went on low water routine: If it’s yellow, let it mellow. If it’s brown, flush it down. And take shorter showers, etc. Didn’t want anything backing up into the house.


So, yesterday, I spent a lot of time outside watching/helping first the Septic Pumper Dude (Dana) pump an almost full septic tank dry ($550 thank you very much) and then the electrical dude (Thad) replace a couple of the floats (and almost getting shocked when he shorted a couple of wires) ($190 and thank you very much). But at least we can all poop again.

But, spending those hours outside in the cold wind and rain did not help me any. Kind of set me back if today was any indication. Just felt punky, head stuffy, and I took a nap for a couple of hours before SWMBO got home. (I don’t usually do that. Micronap sometimes; but never a prolonged nap like that.)


So, I didn’t really feel like going too far for our Saturday Date. So SWMBO took me to DQ here in town, then our usual stop at Safeway, and back home where we be just chillin’. (But not how they mean Netflix and Chill nowadays.)

Spent some time on the phone with her parents trying to teach them how to use the new pad we sent and get them to where they could see our pictures online. That was fun.


Did a little bit of X-Plane while listening to “The Blob” and “Them” and now it’s about my bedtime. I need to get over this damed cold!
