Ya Know, It’s About Time I Caught Up!

Although I may have trouble remembering exactly what the Hell I’ve been doing. Being “retired” is that way sometimes. And these endless days stuck at home doesn’t make it any better. All the days seem to run together.

Me On The USS Plymouth Rock (LSD-29) late 70's

Lets see. Today SWMBO and I went to Walmart. The Dipshidiots are still wearing masks like it actually means something. Picked up some burger stuff (buns, maters, onions, lettuce, etc) for field day this coming weekend. Got 3 new mater cages for the mater plants that need them. Just been hanging around.

Yesterday we sent to COSTCO via Home Depot. Bought a couple of bundles of trim and paid to have it delivered (Wednesday) cause it’s way WAY too long to fit in my truck. Then we spent too much at COSTCO and got only a small basket of stuff.

Last Friday we went to the All-You-Can-Eat Chinese Food place (Mandarin Palace?) in Port Orchard and had a sit-down dinner. Which was really nice.

Desert Storm. Al Jubail, Saudi Arabia

Otherwise I don’t remember much.

SWMBO has started to use one of those electric carts when we go shopping. Bothers me ONLY because she has to use it to get around. Wish she’d find out what’s wrong with her and try to get it fixed. But her blood sugar is way down from what it used to be at! She’s lost a lot of weight too. I’m Really worried!

Course, I have my own issues. Had a dizzy spell a couple of weeks ago and let my Doc know. He ordered (and I had) a Pulmonary Function Test (which I failed) and a CAT Scan (that I really need to look up the results for). Did the PFT and the guy brought out the Albuterol and I got to do it again.Didn’t help much. Quit smoking 9 years ago but that previous 40 kicked my lungs ass.

It's Getting To Be Summer!

Been straightening up all my pictures on my drives (gathering them into one place) HM3 King in Angel 2 over NAS Lemoore early 1970;sand online. One of the guys from NMARES said I can store unlimited photo’s in my Google Photo’s so I think I’m going to check that out. Stored and shareable. Cool So I’m practizin by posting various pictures here as a test. Hope it works.

Oh, the 30 day FB Jail is over as of yesterday and I’ve already pissed off several people just by being Conservative Logical. And my neighbor up-hill may never speak to me again. But when folks post how Masks are the be-all and end-all protection for the COVID-19 (or other viri) the HM in me takes over. And the “homemade” masks are the worst of all.

Kathy & Patrick

Anywho, I think that’s it. I’m sure there’s a butt-ton of things I missed (like finally getting rid of all but one of those Subaru engines and a bunch of the tires and other stuff) but that’s just the way it is for an old guy. We forget shit.

Well. Procrastinated Long Enough, I Guess.

Haven’t updated here since forever, cause there just ain’t nothing going on around here! Well, except for this Coronavirus (COVID-19) of course.

MAN! I cannot believe the panic, fear, and plain stupidity of people (egged on by the “News” agencies). This mass buy-off of toilet paper is crazy. Toilet Paper? What the hell doesn anyone need  years supply of toiolet paper for? Same with sanitary wipes and hand sanitizer. Dipshidiots.


SWMBO and I have pretty much hunkered down and stayed home. Except for Date Day yesterday.Took her to Bubba’s Burgers in Allyn then ate at the waterfront. Took a long walk on a short pier. Came home.

To show how crazy people are: When we got our order, SWMBO took a taste of her drink and a bubble went down the wrong pipe. So she started coughing. A lady sitting behind us exclaimed “Oh, for heaven’s sake!” fairly loudly and stormed off. She didn’t take time to see what was really going on. Fuck her!

But people are freaked out. Social distancing is a big thing. Cities under “stay home” orders. Businesses closed nationwide. Crazy.


And people on FB get upset when one questions the curbing of their freedom’s in the name of safety. Ok, explain to me how a Mayor granting herself the ability to curb gun/ammo sales has anything to do with a virus. Still waiting. And it’s getting to the point that the government is going to force people to stay in their houses. And probably use violence to enforce that. Crazy.

Otherwise, Wx is getting better. By better I mean warm in the afternoons and has been way less cloudy these past few days. Supposed to rain tomorrow though. Of course.

And that’sreally about it. Covid-19. Self Isolation. Plenty of TP left. Wash hands all the time. Cooking dinner now.


Oh, my colonoscopy was cancelled until a later date. At least I didn’t get through the “go lightly” stuff beforehand!
