Not a lot going on but I thought Iâ€™d check in. Was in bed and asleep by midnight last night so I didnâ€™t actually see the New Year arrive. Heard some of our neighbors setting off mortars; at least, they sound like mortars. Lotâ€™s of booming going on!
Last friday I picked up our New Dog. Wiz. Heâ€™s a pretty smart dog but still really shy around us. Neither of us wants to move too fast around him cause it sends him skittering away. But, heâ€™ll get used to us.
Had a chance to see how heâ€™d do by himself yesterday. SWMBO stopped off and got me a Taco Salad (without rice) on the way home so we ate here. She then took me to COSTCO for some â€œstuffâ€ and we made our usual stop at Safeway on the way home.
Dog did fine. He had my slippers scattered about the big room; but he hadnâ€™t chewed them up. And weâ€™ve had only a couple of poopâ€™s to clean up. The pet doors still freak him out but heâ€™s getting easier to push through them. Heâ€™ll learn.
Snowed some last night (about 1/2 inch) and some more today. No real accumulation though. Was light enough that SWMBO could still drive to church and back. We took the Dog for a walk when she got home. Windy and cold. COLD.
The ISS passed right over our house early this morning; but, true to the Northwest, it was cloudy so I couldnâ€™t see it go by. I hate this State. The Western part of this State.
No MCARC 2-meter Net tonight. Everybody must be recouperating from their midnight celebrations. Except for me and a couple of the guys. Old, we are.
