I Want Winter To Be Over With!

Started snowing again while the Dog and I were out on one of our walks. Itty Bitty Flakes and, so far, nothing has really stuck, but snowing none the less. Kinda sorta did that all afternoon. Danged cold out there. Snow is frozen over so it’s easy to walk on it.

Got a new ArtSeries ARD-12(b) antenna for the Icom-2000 that I use for scanning. $10 bucks from a friend. Seems to work ok and I can use that $130 antenna for something else. Like maybe on the truck when we go camping or on trips.

Speaking of which, SWMBO is talking about attending the Hollie family reunion this year. The one that’s the first full weekend of October. That would be ok with me. But the Dog and I would have to leave a couple of weeks early to get there and get the caravan set up. Then she’d fly in for the weekend. She’s talking about maybe riding back with us instead of flying back. That would be really cool! (I like her company and she’s a great Navigator!)


Well, looks like my Renter has gaffed me off. Was supposed to bring rent/electric to me today but I haven’t heard from her. To be honest: Not surprised. Seems like since her ex-boyfriend took a plea-deal and got sentenced she doesn’t want much to do with me. Which is okay. Her loss. Now I get to start Eviction processes. Which, to be honest, I’d rather not do. Maybe if I asked her nicely to be out of the MILA by the end of March? Think being nice one last time will work? (It doesn’t usually.)

Anywho, not a lot going on. Dark out now and I’ve wasted another hour watching crap on YouTube. Think I’ll go get my dishes done. Or not.

Could Barely Hear In My Right Ear Yesterday

Woke up yesterday morning with my ears feeling stuffy. Could barely hear anything with my right ear. Didn’t hurt and I could hear it if I flicked my ear (which one doesn’t want to do very hard either!) but otherwise I really had to turn things up to hear with the right ear. No pain though.

The left ear, on the other hand, felt stuffy and sounded “hollow.” Hard to describe. Almost an echo. Normal sounds were muted, but, when walking outside all the wind noises seemed hyper loud. I heard jets and what I imagined would be the sound of the wind rushing across their wings. I’d swear I even heard planes taking off and landing at the airport 3 miles away. Weird.

It all went away about 2000 last night and today, other than ringing, they’re feeling pretty normal. Which is good.

Bright, sunny, day out. so me and the Dog have been on a few walks already. Got my new chainsaw and went out to the back 40 and cut that log that’s been blocking the path for 2-3 years. Snow is really starting to melt and you can see all kinds of tumblr_plcf1eKd8P1t1dlb4_500-removebgbare ground. Cool!

For dinner I thought I’d make this “shrimp scampi” mix that we’ve had on the shelf since forever. Used the rest of those really small shrimps that I add to my shrimp flavored cup-o-soups that I like to eat for lunch. Half cup each of olive oil and butter and the mix. Made some noodles, and, OMG it was bad! Could not spit it out fast enough. Definitely not saving any for SWMBO! Think the seasonings mix and the olive oil went bad. And maybe the shrimp. So I’m making one of my Japanese Style rice with chicken things I got from COSTCO.

Anywho, “Tremors” Marathon going on my left monitor, ripping our CD’s on the center monitor, and nothing really going on the right monitor. Just messing around until SWMBO gets home.
