Date Day Saturday! Yay!

s10bWhich was mostly an SSDD Saturday until I decided to get the Hell off my Old Ass. So I went out and tested the new pressure washer I got last week. Had to go get some gas first though. But it worked just fine once I figured out that using the “soap” nozzel was not going to put out the pressure I was looking for. The other nozzels worked just fine! So I kinda sorta went over the truck and got the worst of the caked on mud washed off.

My new course from the Learning Company came in the mail. “New Frontiers: Modern Perspectives on Our Solar System.” The first two lectures were pretty good. Hopefully the next 22 will be the same.


SWMBO got home from the Genealogy Library and took me to Denny’s for dinner. I had the chicken & pork quesidilla(?) but couldn’t eat all of it. It was good but I just wasn’t that hungry.

Then we went to COSTCO and got a whole bunch of stuff but not what we actually went there for. They were out of that. So we consoled ourselves with $100 of other stuff.


Then on to Home Depot where I bought a new, gas-powered, straight shaft whack weeder with a blade attachment so I can get after those <whateverthehellthey’recalled> bushes out in the back 40. All told we walked out of Home Depot $300 poorer. (Oh, bought 2-25 ft pressure washer hoses too.)


Made our usual stop at Safeway on the way home. I bought, don’t tell anybody, whole milk this week. I figure once every 5 years (or so) isn’t going to hurt me. What will happen is I’ll forget it’s whole milk and spit it our cause “it tastes funny.”

I Need An Extra Day Between Sunday and Monday. And It’s Only Friday!

j01dPretty much started out your normal, ssdd, kind of day around here. Then it pretty much stayed the same. Pretty much all damned day. Pretty much. Not that I’m complaining. Beats the alternative.

Hasn’t rained much. Yet. So I did get to take the Dog for a walk around the back 40. Getting on time to make a bit more noise on our walks to, possibly, scare away any bears that may be lurking back there. I have two fears about this place: 1) Running into a bear on our walks, and 2) I won’t live long enough to watch the neighbor’s from Hell youngest kid fry for killing his parents in their sleep some night. I’ll bring the popcorn.


Talked for a bit on the Club Repeater with KE7PHU, who finally got a decent radio and was testing it out, and AC7YX, who was trying to put off household chores and thought talking awhile on the radio would accomplish that. It probably did. Good to hear Ray on the radio again!

joan01fI get to pick SWMBO up at the QFC tonight around 1915. Which is always fun cause I really like her coming home. May take the Dog with me. May not. He really doesn’t know how to wait.

Made a run to the Post Office, so I stopped and got one of those DQ $5 lunches. That ought to last me until dinner!

Took the Dog and went and picked SWMBO up. Got home and was getting settled in when she said I should take her for a Chicken Sandwich at MacDonalds. In Town. So I did. (But just cause it was her.) And now we’re back from that and settled in again. Pleasure being out with her!

I’m going to bed.
