So, just havenâ€™t really felt like posting lately. Depression has kinda sorta set in with the Wx changes. Along with the headaches from same. I can tell itâ€™s going to rain 2-3 days before it does around here. Which makes it even more suckie to live in Western WaRshington.
Renter came by last Sunday and moved some of her stuff out; but not everything. Iâ€™ve decided Iâ€™m just not going to get upset about it; but will be doing â€œlegalâ€ things behind the scenes. Mailed (registered) â€œpay up or get out in 3 daysâ€ notices as per the appropriate sections of the RCW. Put the word out on FB that Iâ€™m in need of a Lawyer and collection agency. A lady from Bremerton thatâ€™s done â€œmanyâ€ evictions has offered to help me do what needs to be done in the order it all needs to be done in. What Iâ€™m really looking forward to is having the Sheriff show up at her work to serve her an eviction notice. She should have given me her new address.
I really wish she had done this the easy way for both of us. I expect a rather shrill screech when she finds out Iâ€™ve fucked with her credit rating the next time she goes to buy something. Hey, play the game, live by the rules.
Not a whole lot else going on. Mounted a couple of bright led lights in SWMBOâ€™s room. Had to take out the fan/light combo to do it. She likes all that light though! I like it when I can make her happy.
Did the same in my room; but with only one light. Much brighter when I turn it on! I has 3 settings for different types of light, but since you have to take off the cover and flip a switch itâ€™s pretty much stuck on bright. Ainâ€™t climbing a ladder to change the tone of light for my room. Getting too old for that shit.
Got out the tennis ball gun yesterday and shot a line over a tree to get my long-wire antenna back up. Got frustrated yesterday so didnâ€™t finish it until today. So far itâ€™s working pretty well even though I didnâ€™t get it as high as I want. Did some psk31 at 10w and got signal reports from West Virginia and San Diego. No place in-between though. Hearing JM7OLW (Japan) really well right now! (I should be hearing him. He says heâ€™s running 200 Watts! Thatâ€™s 150w more than expected! (or desired!))
Iâ€™m still getting old and my legs still hurt (a lot) when I get up or after Iâ€™ve stood for awhile. Really hurts to walk at first! Left knee still hurts but both donâ€™t like stairs going up or down. But the Dog and I still get out for our mile at (or near) 0900 and make several trips around the back 40. And weâ€™re doing more now that the Wx is better. Canâ€™t wait until itâ€™s like 80 degrees most days!
So I made contact with JM7OLW on 10 watts. Nice! First psk contact in a couple of years. I really need to get back into radio stuff. Maybe get a decent antenna to put on top of that tower I put in? â€¦
Just tried transmitting on 10 meters. Folders windows kept popping up and down. Might need to put some of those ferrite cores on my wiresâ€¦
