Sort of. Went to the MCARC monthly meeting in Shelton this morning. Good meeting. KE7PHU says heâ€™s still going to give me his old laptop. (When? Thatâ€™s what I want to know.) â€œTheyâ€ decided to have this years Field Day the same field we had it in 4 years ago. Nice field. Out in the middle of no where but still fairly close to town.
Got home and just messed around; took the Dog for a walk and watered the garden.
Met SWMBO at Arbyâ€™s in Silverdale for an early dinner. I like her company! Then we went to COSTCO and spent almost $200 on â€œstuff.â€ Didnâ€™t get anything we wonâ€™t be using though. Took a look through the blu-rayâ€™s but nothing grabbed my interest for the prices they were asking. Ah well. Gonna be time to walk in and buy 10 pair of jeans pretty soon. I do that about every 5 years or so.
Then we spent another $110 at Home Depot on paint and other things. Phew, Iâ€™m a spendy date! Got a bunch of 9-volt batteries to replace all the batteries in all the smoke alarms in the house and MILA. Also got a can of Helmsman Spar Urethane to try something with. (Iâ€™m going to build my own desktop for my room and am wondering how urethane will look. Weâ€™ll see.)
Then it was back home for the two of us. Been reinstalling MS Flight Simulator X and all the add-onâ€™s I bought for it. It worked! First time! I couldnâ€™t believe it. Both FSX & the acceleration pack â€œauthenticatedâ€ (canâ€™t think of the word Iâ€™m supposed to use. Iâ€™m old) right from the git-go. I think thatâ€™s the first time thatâ€™s happened.
And thatâ€™s it. Gotta make the bed and get my morning coffee set up and then will probably lay down and read awhile.
