And I almost made it. Then I made a run to the bank to deposit the Renterâ€™s check. But I came straight home! But then I did my â€œusualâ€ chores. But I sat down as soon as I could to catch up on NCIS. But, even before the show started, I said â€œOh, Hell.â€ Itâ€™s a fairly nice day out there and weâ€™re not going to get many more of them, so, I got off my ass and mowed the lawns. All the lawns.
Then I played with my new antenna some more: tuned it in to the different frequencies and wrote the tuner setting down (on my desktop). I donâ€™t think the antenna is high enough; Iâ€™m getting quite a bit of SWR on some of the freqs. Probably bouncing back from our cement wall out back. I need the tennis ball gun.
Listening to the noon-time net on 7268.5 (LSB) and everyone is coming in gang busters. Think Iâ€™ll try to talk to my friend on 14.342 @ 1515 and see if he notices any difference in my signal. Antenna seems to be working Great! (Then he missed today.) Lady in North Dakota was talking about maybe having snow tonight.
Finally! Just sitting and playing on the radio. Oh, shit. Forgot. Riper tomatoâ€™s need to be boiled down. Damn! So I got up off my ass (again) and went and prepped & boiled the maters down. Well, their still boiling.
Time to fix dinner! Tonight was sliced Kielbasa mixed in with O’Brien potatoâ€™s and an egg. Topped with a toasted bagel (buttered) and a tall, cold, glass of sweet tea.
And thatâ€™s about it. Again. SWMBO is home safe (thatâ€™s pretty important to me) and in her room watching â€œBones.â€ About time for this old man to hit the rack.
