Turned out to be a pretty normal Thursday. Regular chores around the house. Planted some new Tomato & Bell Pepper plants. Which means I had to go out and prepare the “mater beds.” Planted SWMBO’s squash for her.
Nice and warm out there! I like it!
It is Thursday so there just ain’t much else going on. Have “Dog Fights” running in the background. Radio is scanning the 2-meter band in the background. Sounds of SWMBO mowing in the background. Big ol’ glass of iced tea in hand. Life’s Good!
Wish I had known earlier that they needed a spot to bury Boston bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev. I’d have volunteered to let him be buried on the back part of my property. Then I could have walked back and pissed on his grave a couple of times a day. Hell, I’d have invited all the neighbors over to piss on his grave every day also!
SWMBO took the truck for her class in Port Orchard today. I don’t know why since our son didn’t work today and her car was here. Was gonna make a dump run but will now have to do it some other day.
So I gathered all the burnables and burned them. Dishes. Finished off the laundry. Sat outside for awhile. (Too cool for me again today.) Updated the quotes you can see at the right. Killed all the spam entries on my Gallery guestbook (then killed the guestbook altogether. Thanks, Spammers! It’s a shame that “regular” people can’t have a nice site because of the spammers & hackers. Why they have to pick on the “little guys” is beyond me).
BTW, did y’all thank Congress for making shopping online more expensive with their “Internet Tax Fairness” act? Thanks, Congress. Is there anything that isn’t “taxed” these days? Hell, one state (back East, thank God) is even going to tax folks for the RAIN that falls out of the sky onto their property.
Yes, I used the “G” word. Sue me! (I could have used the “A” word, but since I consider that particular Prophet a tin-plated Dick who only has followers because their “religion” allows them to abuse women & children (and blow people up), I didn’t.)
I need a tower for my radio antenna! The noise level has gotten so bad I just cannot hear the rest of the 10-meter net on Tuesday evenings. Oh, no problem talking to someone in another state, but just try hearing someone in Shelton (a mere 25 miles away). It ain’t happening.
MCARC 2-meter Chat Net didn’t go worth beans tonight. Repeater sounds like it’s going TU. KF7VWA and I were well able to simplex. I recorded it to let the guys hear what I’m hearing at the meeting Saturday. We need to buy a NEW repeater! This one is costing too much just to keep running for a lousy job.
