Well, That Wasn’t So Bad. Mostly.

Combing2aLeft the house at 0900 for my appointment at Madigan. Left early cause I’ve never been to Madigan and I’ve heard lots of story’s about how hard parking is to find. Got there by 1000 and there was a butt-ton of empty spaces; as long as you didn’t mind parking kind of out there. Lot’s of people were driving up close to the building trying to find a “closer” spot. Dipshidiots. Park out, walk in.

Anyway, had some time to waste just walking around. Checked in. Was in for my appointment on time. Guy checked me for PAD (Periferial Artery Disease?) but everything checked out okay. Not bad for a almost 64 year old Vintage104asedentary ex-smoker. Afterwards he set me up for an appointment to check the main artery (senior moment) and my corotids before going in to see the actual Doctor. All that starts 15 Jul at 0630 in the A.M. (Which means getting out of the house by 0500.)

Stopped at MacDonald’s cause I was hungry and am home now. Think I’ll take apart my radio/rig and mount it in the Caravan and I won’t have to do that tomorrow.

Was coming back from filling the gas can, and came up behind a woman doing 5 mph on our 15 mph dirt road. So I went to go around her. She tried cutting me off, and when that didn’t work, stayed right beside me until I had to slow down. She fell in behind me and stayed on my ass all the way to my house.  Cussed me out for bcc06bdriving unsafe and passing her on a dirt road where “you have no control and people walk” and more. If anyone made it unsafe it was she; by speeding up and trying not to let me pass her. Dipshidiot. (I knew what I was doing. Road was clear of everything but her.) You don’t want people passing you? Do the fucking speed limit.

I’m almost expecting her husband to show up. If he does, I’m going to call 911 and say that there’s someone on my property threatening me and I want to know if I can shoot him legally? If the Cops show up they’re welcome to look at the dashcam video.

My Syma X5C drone came in today. Charged the battery and gave it a test flight. I still like to run into things. It’s light! And tough; since I’ve already run into multiple things and it’s still working. Don’t like the USB charging though. I’ll give it a better test this weekend at Field Day.

I got to pick SWMBO up at the QFC tonight. That’s always nice. She ate in my room while watching “Real Steel” and that was cool too.

But, not, this old guy (Old Guy) is gonna go lay down and read a bit.

And That Was My Day.

Beast of Yucca Flats

“Sure wish it would quit raining.” I thought to myself just as I stepped into the shower this morning.Stop and think about that. And it did. Just long enough to take the Dog for a walk around the back 40. There are places we don’t go though, because of the squishy ground and pools of water. But he had a great time anyway.

Other than that, it’s been a really dark, rainy, day. Downpoured really hard a couple of times. Really hard. So I’ve stayed inside (mostly) getting my chores done, reading, playing with X-Plane, changing some lightbulbs out, and listening to the radio. (The Ham radio as opposed to the Internet radio. Which is what I usually mean when I say I’ve been listening to the radio.)

And that was my day. Boring.SWMBO is home safe though and that’s a really important matter to me. Cause she’s important to me.

Think I’m gonna to lay down and read.

Why are y’all still reading this? Go! Enjoy your significant others company for awhile.
