The DIRT road to/from our house was icey when I went to the Post Office earlier. The DIRT road. Almost as slick as snot. Was fun driving on, but I wouldnâ€™t want to make a habit of it. Parking lots at the Bank and the Post Office were slushy.
Really not a whole lot going on around here. Had a small bit of snow yesterday afternoon into early evening; but nothing stuck and it eventually just sprinkled. But, SWMBO made fried shrimp for dinner so I realy didnâ€™t care what it was doing outside.
Got in a â€œreadingâ€ mood this past week so I re-read all three â€œCrystal Singerâ€ books by McCaffrey. Enjoyed them all over again. Wondering what to delve into next. Re-read the complete Dragonrider series? Start back in with my favorite Clancey? Let Stephen King or Dean Koontz fill my evenings with weirdness? Back to the classic sci-fi authors: Clarke, Asimov, Heinlein, et al?
I get a daily e-mail from BookBub with their recommendations for books I might want to buy. All the blurbs read like something Iâ€™ve read and all the new â€œheroâ€™sâ€ are female. (Not that I find anything wrong with a good female hero; but all of them? Did the guys quit going into Space looking for trouble?) Ah well.
So, I need to get off my fat ass. Been sitting around too damned much even if I am retired. Four hours of X-Plane does not an active Old Guy make. Canâ€™t force myself to walk on the treadmill; too damned boring. So I got down in the basement to straighten up for awhile and try to make plans for what I want to do down there. Wow, only took 30+ years but I finally got all my drill bits in one place! Dayam!
Problem is being stuck inside. I hate Winter. Purely hate it. If I was to win that $400 million Powerball Iâ€™m afraid Iâ€™d just follow summer around the world. Have much nicer weather to not get anything accomplished.
Anywho, itâ€™s several (non-productive) hours later and Iâ€™m back from picking SWMBO up at the Ferry Landing. Managed to check in to a couple of new 2-meter Nets while out. Stopped at Micky Dâ€™s cause she was hungry. Just hunkering down for the night.
