Had A Lot Of Fun Today! Date Day!

It’s Saturday and the latest I could sleep this morning was 0630. 0630! It’s Saturday! I could sleep in until at least 0700. If I were normal! But Normal pretty much isn’t my lifestyle.


Not much going on right now. Listening to the radio and getting the “radio” computer set up and running. Installed OneDrive on it and it’s syncing now. Need to replace the dvd drive in it. Should have an old one laying around somewhere.


SWMBO took me to Red Lobster to celebrate her new job. Dinner was great and the company was fantastic! Kind of spendy, well, really kind of spendy, but it was almost worth it. (I think all that kind of stuff is too expensive. We live next to the damned ocean for Heaven’s sake. Fish shouldn’t be that expensive.) I had the new lobster-shrimp-salmon plate and it was good.

Made our usual stop at Safeway on the way back. Oh, we stopped at Fred Meyer’s to find out where the hell our new camera is. Still waiting on it. So I asked to talk to a manager and she got on the phone and, after a few minutes, said she’d pick them up from the warehouse and have them in the store tomorrow. Told her Monday would be okay since we try not to do business on Sunday. All in all I’m pretty proud of myself; didn’t yell or raise my voice or get upset. Just stated the facts and that I was extremely unhappy with Fred Meyer’s.

Got my new cables for the radio today. Man, that was fast! I only ordered them a couple of days ago. I will be leaving both retailers glowing reports on Amazon! And both are working great since I downloaded and installed the drivers. Already backed up my radio settings & memories. Already played with HRD and the new cable connected first time and stayed that way. Cool! So I’ve been playing on the radio for the past couple of hours.

But, now it’s time for me to go to bed. Time to turn Doctor Who Season 1 Reboot to bed. Maybe I ought to grab my Schweetie and take her to bed?! Hmmm…

Climbed On A Roof Today.

Hell. Might as well start off with the same subject I’ve started off with the last couple of days. Got to sleep much quicker last night. The only meds I took yesterday was my half-aspirin. Heart was nice and quiet and I only noticed a couple of pauses. Didn’t notice any of that quivering feeling at all. I’m being led to the conclusion that my BP meds are causing some of the problems. Will let my Doctor know and won’t bore y’all with it anymore. Aren’t you glad?


Other than that the day has started off rather normally. Maybe even more normally than usual. Well, except for my neighbor taking me to the auto parts store so I could buy a new battery. $125! Damn! What happened to $40 and we keep your old one? But the truck started right up when I installed it. Glad that was the only problem.


One of the OLD Hams in Shelton called and said he had a bunch of stuff to give away for FREE but it had to be picked up right now. So I went and picked it up right now. Good thing my truck is working again. Got a bunch of stuff: A 6-element antenna of some kind. Lots of fiberglass poles. A shitload of wire. Some electronics. A high pass filter. Some other electronics and a FT-51R handheld that I have no idea if it works or not. (But probably not.) Anyway, that’s where the climbing on the roof comes in. Had to climb up there to dismount the antenna. What fun!


My lovely young bride of almost 30 years stayed over in Seattle to have dinner with some of her co-workers to celebrate some of them getting full time jobs. She should be in around 1945 (as she just texted me she’s on the ferry).
