Started Posts Several Times

Luba01-27Over the past few days. Got about a paragraph into them and bored myself to tears so I deleted them. Lucky You!

Life has been so SSDD around here I’m almost ashamed to mention it. Weather has been fairly wet, sometimes windy, kind of warmish then Cold again. Winter! In WaRshington.

Dog and I have been walking about 3 miles a day. Even in the rain. He hates his rainccoat though. Doesn’t like pooping around that strap that goes under his tail.

I’ve been moving things around on the new hard drives. Still up in the air about moving everything off the 5 TB drive and re-partitioning it. Handy to have it split like it is.

Love this 43” monitor I got for my office! I don’t have to put on my glasses to read the text on the thing when I run it in Radio mode. Otherwise it’s showing movies or tv shows all day in the background. Nice.

This week I finished the first 4 Pern books and am now in “All The Weyrs Of Pern.” It is such a joy to just sit and read again!

Just not a lot going on around here. Winter routine at it’s finest.

Me Back In The Day. SAR

Oh, woke up the other morning from a strange dream that Gravity had increased X4 while I was laying in bed. But only from my waist down. Woke up with a terrible ache across my hips and down through both legs which went completely away when I turned to get up. Weird! This getting OLD shit sucks.

So, when does “old enough to know better” kick in?

Got to pick SWMBO up at the QFC tonight. Regular Friday Routine. Almost the best part of the day for me!

Not Spending As Much Time On Social

Getting back into reading. I love reading! There are quite a few People, Places, & Planets I want to visit again before I kick off. (Whenever that will be!) Killashandra Ree was first. Pern is next. Wolf’s Hour, Stinger, & Swan Song are on the list. Way Lots More!

Date Day with my lovely-young-bride of 31+ years yesterday went well. We ate at Burger King in Silverdale so she could go to Joann’s Fabrics (while I sat in the truck reading), Costco for some bulk(y) items and Safeway for those things we didn’t need a butt-ton of.

Oh, had the MCARC meeting in the morning. It was okay. Had a coupld of new folks and that’s always great.

Today I made Slow cooked (crockpot) Italian Chicken & Taters from a recipe I found on Pinterest. Nailed it!

Been rebuilding my drives since the two new 3 TB drives arrived last Thursday. Tried setting them up on my Windows 10 laptop and copied a lot of my stuff to them. Good thing I only copied! Had to repartition and reformat them when I installed them into my computer. Go figure. Had to use that GPT partitioning scheme so I could have drives over 2 TB; but eveyghing seems to be working well.

So, finished reinstalling X-Plane 11 and getting that set up. Made a short flight from Yellowstone to Seattle and landed fine. Still can’t get really high graphics but not too bad. Good enough to fly. Still going to either make or buy a machine for X-Plane on the big monitor.

Danged pipe backed up! Water all over the floor in the laundry room and the kitchen sink was full. Got it to drain slowly. SWMBO got online and found a “recipe” of dish soap in boiling water poured down the sink. Tried it and it seems to have worked. Ran water in the kitchen sink for over 2 minutes and it didn’t back up. Next load of laundry will tell.

The MCARC 2-meter Sunday Chat Net went well with only 3 check-ins. Are we getting too boring for folks to check in? Net Control had to quit early to fix a bloody nose for one of his kids!

I’m gonna go lay down and read.
