Half-Way Through The Week Already

So, bought myself one of these little O2 Sat/Pulse monitors, you know, just to check, and, not too bad. Just sitting here it reads 96% O2 level and 69 Pulse. Walking up the hill the O2 dropped to 85% and my pulse was 101 at the top. Stood still for 15 seconds or so and my O2 went back to 94%.

What’s all this telling me? No fucking idea. That I shouldn’t have smoked 40 years probably. While oxygen depravation could be some of the problem, I probably have something else that’s causing me to feel tired when I do something physical.

I know: AGE. Fuck.

Had more snow last Sunday morning. Really BIG flakes at times. Didn’t last though and it’s been not too bad since. Really cloudy today and supposed to rain a bit for the next few days. Winter. Sucks.


Bought 2 Charge Controllers for the solar panels and they got here yesterday. Looking at a place in the garage to mount a couple of batteries. May have to put another hole in the wall and I’m not sure how SWMBO is going to take to that. I think she’d be okay with it the first time the power went out and we could charge her tablets/phone from solar; but you never know. Wives are strange that way.

SWMBO’s home and fed. The MCARC 2-meter Wednesday Night Chat Net went expecially well; since everyone heard me loud and clear tonight. Radio stuff seems to work better in the rain around here!

Tried logging on to the “new” (to me) DS Login shit trying to get my Rx renewed. What a waste of time! Gonna have to call the Hospital to find out if my Doc even still exists. Damned DS Login thing would only bring up Madigan. (I don’t want to have to go to Madigan. That’s a special trip. Long trip.)

Anywho, I’m going to lay down and read.

Holy Crap! It Snowed Today!

For the first half of the day. Talk about unexpected! Caught everyone by surprise. I had told the Club that it was gonna start snowing around the 25th or so. Nope! Missed it by a mile this year. Was kinda nice though. Cold.


Me and Verizon: I had two LG tablets. Broke the first one then got the second one when I got my new phone. Broke it. Turns out I’ve been paying insurance to replace them if broken. Tried that last night. Turns out my deductable is $99 (not the $20 I was told it’d be) AND the device has been discontinued.


So, I called Verizon customer service to complain and ask for a refund of all the insurance money I spent for nothing. She connected me with the place (Asomething) and they said they’d send me this other tablet. For $99. Nope. Sorry. Can’t afford it. Old Guy. Fixed Income. You know the drill.

So, not really happy with Verizon right now. Can’t believe I spent $18/mo for almost 2 years for insurance that did me absolutely no good.


Made this “dirty rice” stuff for dinner. Added hamburger and some peas. Should Have Paid More Attention To The “Real Cajun Spices” splashed all over the front of the box. Phew! Spicy!

Anywho, picked SWMBO up at the QFC as per the usual Friday evening routine. We be home. I be going to lay down and read awhile.

Oh, BTW, that new waterbed we put together: Works great. Wednesday I woke with a headache (probably due to Wx changes). So, Wednesday night I last looked at the clock at 2303. Next thing I know it’s 0530! Felt Great All Day Thursday! OMG. The difference was something else. Nice!

Last night I slept most of the night (only woke up once around 0430) and felt pretty good all day even if it did snow. Me and the Dog did about 8 walks about. Nice.

Freakin’ Snow Today.
