Kind Of Another Lazy Day. Sort Of.

Got an e-mail that my friend, W7FBI (Lee), passed away from heart problems yesterday. He was, like, ancient, had been a Ham since forever, and I’d been to his house several times to help out with putting up antenna’s and ‘stuff.” He was also our Club President or Treasurer occasionally. He was a really nice person. He will be missed on our Nets! Not totally unexpected, considering his age, but still …

Other than that: not much happening today. It’s kind of sprinkling out there but the grounds so wet we have our backyard river running again. There’s a pool (of water) about 8 feet out from the house that I’m hoping doesn’t spread any further.

Made a new Flickr account for KF7LTT just to post the Club/Ham Radio pictures and, maybe, make it a bit easier for the other Club members to get to when they’ve the urge. Uploading is slow today and it took a couple of hours to upload all the pictures I have and get them arranged in some semblence of order.

Looks like a great swath of the East Coast is getting hammered by a snow storm. Cool. Hope the White House caves in on some certain few people. But that’s just me.

Anyway, got to pick SWMBO up at QFC this evening so I took the Dog with me. He does a lot of complaining until she finally shows up. But, that’s okay. He’s a Dog.

Think I’ll go read a bit. Or maybe Tumblr.

A Real Gully-Washer Out There!

Got a call from the embroider people over in East Bremerton that my hat and t-shirt are ready to be picked up. So I took off to go. What A Mess out there! A real downpour all the way there and back. Roads are starting to flood. Tree’s down in a couple of places. Wires down. It was really kind of a fun drive!

Hat looks great. T-shirt looks great. Sure hope SWMBO likes it. (The shirt.) Navy blue with SWMBO across the front of it. Oh, the hat is (an almost too bright) blue with my call, KF7LTT, across the front of it. Not Camo, but, oh well.

Stopped and got the $5 lunch (BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger) at DQ on the way back. That should last me for awhile.

Trying to backup my Thunderbird mail files; they are at almost 6 Gig and I want to be able to back them up a bit easier. Culling out a lot of stuff. E-mails from 1998 through today. Why? Other than software serial numbers and such, can’t see any reason to keep most old e-mails anymore.

Why do they call it an asteroid when it’s outside the hemisphere, but call it a hemorrhoid when it’s in your butt?

And that’s it again. SWMBO be home safe (and dry) and she liked her new t-shirt. I think I’ll go read some more.
