I Am So Depressed.

Part of it is the immenent return of Winter. All that rain and cold and dark. Part of it is my Renter. Part of it is my Lovely-Young-Bride of almost 32 years. Part of it is I’m pretty tired of something hurting all the damned time. Part of it is that I spend WAY too much time alone. Part of it is that Im just fuckin’ Old.


Saw my new Doc last week. That was a waste of time. Could not get him off whatever his agenda was and on to what was bothering me. BAck in my day, if a patient had complained of foot or knee pain, we were taught to get them up on the exam table and actually DO an exam. Range of Motion, Does This Hurt? All that stuff.

Not this Doctor. Oh, sure, for the knee pain he said “probably degenerative osteo(someting). We could inject some steroids to see if that would help.” All this without an actual exam. He’s Good!

And, you’d think that when an OLD GUY says “I get chest pains in my upper left chest when I exert myself.” that the Doc would get one’s shirt off so he could listen to your heart and lungs. Nope. You’d be mistaken.


But he did order a echocardiogram and CT scan because I used to smoke.

Got My Tower Up! Mostly. Bunch of the guys came over the 22nd and spent about 3 hours getting it up. Rained the whole damn time! They did a fantastic job. Now I need to get the rotator ordered, antenna built and mounted and the last section up and I’ll be cooking with gas! I’ve tried climbing it. I can get about half way up before my knee hurts too much to go further, AND, even though my mind says I’m doing fine, my ASS says it ain’t going any farther. Stupid Ass!

NMARES meeting went really good tonight. Way more interesting than the South Club meetings.

Dang! Was so tired I forgot to post this last night.

Hurricane Florence Is Bearing Down!

Was going to post tonight, but, just dont feel like it. It’s 2030 and I’m tired. Haven’t been taking my meds cause they make me feel worse than the high blood pressure. I do take my one med that keeps my heart beating smoothly though. I like my heart beating smoothly.

Might Be Time For A New Road Trip!

Over the past few days I’ve been trying to get the “outside” stuff done before the Winter Wx sets in. Bought 10 more mason stone and put them in place. (Need about 15 more.) Weeded and graded the blue berry patch, put that weed blocker cloth down, and put 5 bags of bark in. That’s done. Looks pretty nice. Only a shitload more things to do that to!

My left knee is hurting so much lately that I seriously don’t know which leg to limp on anymore. My Doctor is going to shit his pants when I start listing the things I need to talk with him about! I need to cut the dosage of my bp meds cause what I’m taking make me feel shitty. Just getting OLD I guess.

Maybe Black's Beach In La Jolla?Sprinkled some today so I gat out and burned trash. Got about half of it done.

My friend took the last of those ICF blocks and has a Gin Pole I can borrow so we’re planning to put up my tower the 22nd. That’ll be good. Won’t have an actual antenna to put on the top of it (for HF) but will have the tri-band VHF/UHF and two camera’s up. Ordered a climbing rig and got half of it in today. Cool!

I’m going to lay down. I’ll finish this tomorrow.

Ok, so it’s Wednesday now. Whoptie Doo. Still tired. Strange Dreams last night. Wx sucks. Suppose I should take the Dog for a walk.

So, two trips to the dump to, well, dump trash. Once for ours and once for the Renters. And, honestly, didn’t really get a lot more done today. Just felt tired.

Even waited too long to start dinner. Having two deep fried Egg, Bacon, Taters, and cheese sauce burrito’s since they were quick and easy. (Easy would have been to just mocrowave them.)

Renter has kicked out her present boyfriend and he’s had enough of her that he’s just leaving. Young People!

NOTICE: Big Anti-Trump ralley on Myrtle Beach, SC Friday morning! Be There!
