And at 0550 I got to hear my tower sing. True, it sits right outside my shack window but it’s the first time I’ve heard it make any noise in a wind. Pretty good gust though. Looking forward to walking around the property later to see if we lost any more trees.
Not a whole hell of a lot going on around here otherwise. Been cold and WET the last few days. Dog complains that I’ve gotten old cause when I look out and it’s raining we don’t go for our walk. Sure, normally I’ve spent too much time with the Grunts to let a little rain stop me, just put on your poncho and git, but I just don’t feel like it lately.
Went to a Doc for a pre-surgery appointment and he cleared me. Gave me 14 bottles of Ensure to drink in the week before said surgery. Bunch of exercises to do. Sent me home and I’ve heard Nada since. Gonna call them today.
In the meantime I went to a physical therapy session here in Belfair. Nice that it’s so close. They gave me more exercises that I’ll be doing after the surgery to start now. They keep wanting me to sign up to start regular visits but I haven’t been scheduled for surgery yet.
SWMBO and I are working out how we’re going to handle my post-surgery limitations. Told her to tell me if I’m getting cranky. Couldn’t shut her up! When she finally ran down I had to expand on that with “from the pain or inaction after surgery.”
Still experimenting with the freeze dryer and what I can make. Put together some ‘nearly instant breakfasts’ using 1 & 1/2 cups of scrambled eggs, O’Briens(?), & sausage mix (all cooked and freeze dried separately) that worked out rather well. Add between 1/2 to 3/4 cup hot water, mix well and let sit for a minute and you’re eating breakfast.
Of course, had to make two versions: mine with sausage and SWMBO’s without. She doesn’t like sausage. Poor woman. She’s from Toledo, you know. Diced some ham to try for the next batch.
Adding some freeze dried cheese to the mix should be good. Mushrooms? Maters?
I need an 8mm vcr/camcorder so I can convert all my old family tapes to digital.
Oh, got a review of a Tarzan movie collection I bought on Amazon REJECTED because it violated their community standards. In it I mentioned the OLD society norms and various racial stereotypes so “put your big boy/girl panties on and accept that that was the way it was back then.” Guess you can’t tell folks to grow up publicly anymore.
Still, Maureen O’Sullivan as Jane in that jungle suit she wore. Still nice almost 100 years later.
Y’all have a great day!
