Another Great Sunday At Home

DoorBlond1bAnd I’m loving it!

So, what the heck have I been up to? And for how far back; since I haven’t posted in a few days?

Friday? Yeah, that’s enough. Friday. Hmmm… What the heck did I do? Stayed around the house “doing things.” That’s about all I can remember. Dog and I did make a dump run but I don’t remember if that was Friday or not.

Saturday was MCARC meeting in Shelton. It went well. LOTS of planning for Field Day at the end of the month.

Then, the afternoon was “date day” with my lovely young bride of 30+ years. I always look forward that that. She took me to the China Sun Buffet (all you can eat) in Port Orchard (where I stuffed myself this time). Then our usual stop at Walmart. Then back home.

My New Tower Waiting To Be Put Up

Today, Sunday, was really a SSDD. Only got half the laundry done cause we ran out of the soap we use. (More on order and should be here Tuesday.) SWMBO made dinner (it was good!). Went on a walk around the back-40.

The MCARC 2-meter Sunday Evening Chat Net went okay; but only two of us checked in tonight! Haven’t seen that happen in awhile. But, it is almost Summer, the Wx is pretty nice today, so I kind of expect most folks would be out doing something. And that’s okay.

Think I’ll go lay down and read a bit.

Instead I spent an hour looking at shipping containers online. Phew!

Wow. Almost Got Warm Outside Today.

Taste1Again. SSDD. Except the sun was out and it got kind of nice out there. So me and the Dog got out and tried a couple of things to get my long-wire antenna up again. None of which worked, of course.

First I hooked fishing line to the drone and made a couple of attempts to get over the tree. Almost worked the first time! Wasn’t quite as far around the tree as I thought. My other attempts were dismal failures in that it was just too breezy to have good control over the drove. And I almost got it hung up in the tree.

So, tennis ball gun. Ball went right where I wanted it first shot. Fishing line went right where I wanted it to. Fishing line got caught up and the ball is now hanging about 30 feet up. Kind of inaccessable to an fat, old, guy like me. So I’m leaving it in place, with plenty of extra string, to see if the wind will work it down to where I’ll be able to grab it. We’ll see.

NC349-05Was really nicer outside. Took the Dog for a couple of walks. He’s a warm Wx Dog for sure. Been antsy all day. I’ve been busy doing Club finances and putting together those cansolidator thingies SWMBO bought and haven’t been able to pay that much attention to him. So I chased him around the big room for awhile. He’s getting to where he’ll “fight” with me. Cool!

The Monday evening NMARES 2-meter Net went well. Everyone was scratchy;  but everyone is always scratchy on this repeater.

SWMBO is home and in doing her homework. Dog is finally getting calmed down. Think I’ll go read a bit.
