Day started at 0500 for us cause SWMBO is going to use the earlier Ferry this week to show her potential bosses she can get in at 0800. She is NOT a morning person!
Been out gardening, weeding the front flowerbed. Just being outside. Nice. Made a run to the Post Office but otherwise just been hanging around here trying to do “stuff.” Mainly weeding the flowerbed but also moving rocks and dirt and putting the last two bricks in place along the border. Those last two bricks have been waiting to be put in place almost 4 years. Two bricks. Two. Four years.
My thermometer read over 100 degrees today. It’s in the shade. There is a Hot Wind blowing out there. If a fire were to start over here it would run wild. We’re dry. Very dry. Scary dry. Hope we have some rain with the possible thunder storms we’re supposed to have tonight. Right now rain would be a good thing. A bit anyway.
Damn! Robin Williams died today. Damn! I remember him making me laugh an awful lot throughout my life. Too bad he couldn’t overcome his depression. That’s a battle I know only too well.
Well, SWMBO’s Son is picking her up at the Ferry Landing so I don’t have to make the run into town. Have a couple of feelings about that. Damned strange not to ride and talk with her. But I didn’t have to make the trip into town.
So, quite naturally, I’m doing my “usual” chores while SWMBO is off to church. Watered the garden. Started laundry. Loaded the dishwasher. Took a walk around the back 40. Trying to get the “big room” (where my computer and radio are until we finish the kitchen and my room walls: winter project) in some semblance of order. At least looking a little neater.
Speaking of my radio: I’ve been so busy trying to stay busy and not sit on my fat old ass that I really haven’t been doing much radio stuff. I need to change that. Will probably be easier this winter when it gets light late and dark early. Won’t be doing as much stuff outside.
My Renter left his desktop computer with me to let me look at and see if I can fix it. I can’t get the thing to POST at all. I’ve taken everything off it, including the drives and memory, and can’t even get a “no memory installed” or “No Operating System Installed” error. Fans start up, drives spin, you can eject the dvd drive but nothing else seems to work. The main board looks good; but who knows?
Dang! Forgot about the MCARC 2-meter Chat Net until Bill (AE7GC) called and reminded me. Can you say Senior Moment? Net went well though. Eight check-ins. Everyone is doing well. Some complained it’s been too hot. Weather Weenies!
And that’s pretty much it for tonight. Gonna get to bed early cause SWMBO has to get up at 0500 starting tomorrow. Nice to be getting up at a decent hour again!
