Here it is 0900 and itâ€™s only 18 degrees. Thatâ€™s up 2 degrees since I got up at 0530. Sucks! I really believe that, if itâ€™s going to be cold, especially this cold, it ought to be snowing. Otherwise whatâ€™s the sense of it being cold!? There is snow in Northern Oregon, and Iâ€™m tempted to jump in the truck and drive on down for the day; but I have to stay local to pick SWMBO up at the Ferry Landing @ 1945 (or so).
Ok. Usual chores done. About to go check mail. Should be a Netflix day.
Spent a couple of hours â€œstraighteningâ€ up the library shelves. Finally got tired of the pile of books on the coffee table. SWMBO isnâ€™t going to be very happy with the way I did it, but, she should have gotten off her duff about it a long time ago. (Sheâ€™s our Librarian.) Ah well; you remember that old saying about it being â€œeasier to ask forgiveness?â€ Ah, the perils of leaving a â€œretiredâ€ man at home alone!
Man, I just canâ€™t believe the things I take for granted nowadays. I remember when a 40 MEGAbyte drive was a big thing. Now I routinely work with files 25 gig or more. A 1.2mb floppy was the â€œcatâ€™s meowâ€ where now I have several 16 gig thumb drives. Wish I was gonna live longerâ€¦
Just went to pick SWMBO up at the Ferry Terminal. COLD out there! Even the smokers at the bar were heavily bundled up.
