Nice outside though. Nice enough for me to get off my lazy old ass and mow the front lawns. Nice enough to pick the last of the mini-maters. (Well, maybe the last. There are still some green tomatoâ€™s hanging around. Literally.)
Yesterday was pretty much our usual SSDD Saturday. SWMBO went off to the Genealogy Library. I puttered around the house until she got home and took me to dinner for our Saturday date. We went to El Sombreroâ€™s in Port Orchard; where I had the worst meal Iâ€™ve ever had there and, maybe, the worst meal Iâ€™ve had in a long time. Fish Tacoâ€™s. Which would have been okay if they had given them to me in Corn Tortillaâ€™s (like I ordered) instead of flour tortillaâ€™s. But, other than that the meal just plain sucked. Ah well. One meal out many can happen.
Went to a couple of places looking for a cover for my LG G Pad, a memory card, and some size-0 knitting needles for SWMBO but didnâ€™t find anything. Wal-Mart wanted $40 for a 32 Gig SD Card!
So, after our usual stop at Safeway on the way home, I got online to Amazon, found what I needed, found a set of knitting needles for SWMBO, and ordered them. Totaled $54. Not bad. Danged 256 Gig SD Card was only $25! For 256 Gig! I know it really, technically, doesnâ€™t exist; but you can try things and they may work. (No. Iâ€™m an idiot that should have read the reviews before ordering the thing. Will send it back (or just suck it up as a cheap price for being stupid) when it gets here and go ahead and get a â€œlowlyâ€ 64 Gig card.) (Wound up logging in and cancelling that part of the order. Iâ€™ll get a card while Iâ€™m out tomorrow.)
Then SWMBO and I watched â€œAvengers: Age of Ultronâ€ for the first time. Not bad. Not bad. Iâ€™d have been pissed if Clint had gotten killed. And I actually like the â€œnewâ€ Hulk; he looks beastlier (if thatâ€™s a word).
Anywho, SWMBO has a friend over and theyâ€™re in her room sewing a quilt. I got the vacuum hose out and assembled a long (whatever the pipe thingies are that hook to the hose) and sucked all the cobwebs from the ceilings. Shouldnâ€™t have cleaned the fire alarms cause 2 of them started that intermittent beeping that tells you the batteries are low. Which means I had to get out the 12-foot ladder and take them down to replace the batteries. Which means a trip to the store tomorrow.
And, wouldnâ€™t you know, SWMBO forgot to tell me the Sister Missionaries were coming over for dinner around 1600! Holy Shit! So I had a frantic half hour making burgers (with all the fixings’), Half-Baked Bakes (they arenâ€™t â€œfriesâ€ to me unless you actually FRY them!), and some baked beans (just in case they didnâ€™t want any of the half-baked bakes.) And chips. Threw those out for just-in-case too. I think the best thing that can be said about that dinner is that they didnâ€™t leave here hungry.
And thatâ€™s getting to be pretty much it. I get to run the MCARC 2-meter Chat Net tonight. Other than that I really need to start my homework for the Extra Class class.
