Rainy Monday Blues

Herc06Drove over to Shelton on MCARC business early this morning. Met the Prez & new Treasurer at the Shelton Catholic School to check out if we can hold club meetings there. Seems like it would work and wouldn’t cost us anymore than we’re spending now. Wouldn’t supply coffee (which is really what we’re paying for at the present place) but, hey, I can live with that.

Then I spent an hour at the Club’s bank that I didn’t need to spend getting the New Treasurer set up to be able to sign checks and stuff. That was okay though.

One the way home I got caught behind someone that could NOT make up their mind how fast they wanted to go. Speed limit or 5 mph under. Hate those people. When we got to a place I could pass her (yep,her) she tried to keep me from passing. She certainly didn’t have any problem with how fast she wanted to go then. Got around her though. Dipshidiot!

Herc15Decided to go ahead and take the Caravan on the trip. Even though the trip with be a day (or two) slower, and more expensive, having all my “stuff” available and already set up without having to unload/load the truck everyday is going to be worth it. Plus RV parks will be about half the price of a motel room with a Dog. And RV Parks don’t care about our Dog as long as you clean up after it. And it’s quiet.

So I spent part of the afternoon getting the Caravan ready to travel. Wasn’t much to do since we pretty much keep it ready to go “just in case.” As in: just in case Mt. Rainier decides to blow the Hell up or we have the “big” one. Gotta mount my 857d in it and I’ll be ready to rock.

Appointment tomorrow to sign the Old Guy papers at the Naval Hospital. Hope I can keep Tricare For Life at least. Appointment Wednesday to get an oil change and standard warranty check.

Damn. Think I’m coming down with SWMBO’s cough.

Mother’s Day Sunday

Hercules Unchained 1958Unfortunately, SWMBO was sick with a cold. She got to stay in bed all day; but it wasn’t the good kind of stay in bed all day like she usually likes. Poor Baby. I made myself a nuke-ro-wave Lasagna for dinner so she didn’t have to worry about that. Would have made dinner for her but she really wasn’t hungry. Or just didn’t feel like eating. Hope she gets better!

The Hercules I Grew Up WithNot a whole lot else going on for this Mothers Day. Been trying to post a video saying “Happy Mother’s Day” to my step-mom but am having a hell of a time uploading it to facebook. Been trying over an hour now. Even rebooted my router and tablet “just in case.”

Dog and I spent some time outside throwing his balls around. You have to use two. When he runs and gets one I brandish the other which makes him bring the first ball back and drop it at my feet when he jumps to the the other one. That’s the way we have to play “fetch.”

Was mostly kinda nice out there today. Really cloudy but not much raining. Couple of Sylva Koscina (19331994)walks, some gardening, mowed the front-back yard and the trail (and part of the front yard) cause they needed mowing.

All my usual chores are done except laundry; and that’s one load away from being done. Started pulling things together for my trip to Texas. Figure I’ll mount my 857d in the truck Thursday after all the weekly nets. Cleaned out my toolbox so I can lock things up in it if I need to.

The MCARC 2-meter Sunday Evening Chat Net went well. Not too many check-ins but was interesting anyway. I’m still scratchy. I think it’s just where I live.

Anywho, that’s really about it for today. I lead a really boring life. Prefer it that way most of the time.
