But, oh man, am I ever tired today.
We got up early and took off. Here to Shelton, to Olympia, to Portland (with a stop for breakfast about half way down), to Astoria (the back way), to Tillamook to the Air Museum where I donated my flight helmets from â€œway back when,â€ back to Astoria (and a dinner stop at a Chinese place), Across the bridge back into WaRshintion (where it really did immediately start to rain), to Montesano, to Olympia, to Shelton, to Home. 15 Hours. I was one tired Old Guy last night. (And Iâ€™m not even going to mention the crappy assed drivers that donâ€™t know how to pick a speed or that play the â€œgame.â€)
Still kind of paying the price today. I am just dragged out. Barely managed to finish my usual chores. Feel really sleepy. This does not bode well for our coming trip to Tenn and Ohio.
Iâ€™ve had these helmets since forever. Theyâ€™ve just been sitting on the tops of our book cases gathering dust and I just knew that, after I die, theyâ€™d wind up in the garbage or at some thrift shop somewhere; and I didnâ€™t really want that. Not that itâ€™d really matter to me after I die. But then I thought that Iâ€™d just donate them to the Air Museum and, maybe, people could look at them for another 100 years and enjoy.
That wasnâ€™t bad at all. Decided to have â€œfish and chipsâ€ for dinner. Kind of tired of the ways I usually fix fish though. So I spread Sweet Baby Rayâ€™s BBQ sauce on the fish and pan fried it. Not bad at all. Of course, I used the fry baby thing for the fries and they were as good as usual. Something about using real lard â€¦
I got to pick SWMBO up at the QFC tonight. She wanted to go to MacDonaldâ€™s to get something to eat. So we went to MacDonaldâ€™s. I had a medium vanilla shake and half her fries.
Anywho, thatâ€™s it. Iâ€™m still tired and feel like warmed over puke so Iâ€™m gonna go lay down.
