Left the house at 0900 for my appointment at Madigan. Left early cause Iâ€™ve never been to Madigan and Iâ€™ve heard lots of storyâ€™s about how hard parking is to find. Got there by 1000 and there was a butt-ton of empty spaces; as long as you didnâ€™t mind parking kind of out there. Lotâ€™s of people were driving up close to the building trying to find a â€œcloserâ€ spot. Dipshidiots. Park out, walk in.
Anyway, had some time to waste just walking around. Checked in. Was in for my appointment on time. Guy checked me for PAD (Periferial Artery Disease?) but everything checked out okay. Not bad for a almost 64 year old sedentary ex-smoker. Afterwards he set me up for an appointment to check the main artery (senior moment) and my corotids before going in to see the actual Doctor. All that starts 15 Jul at 0630 in the A.M. (Which means getting out of the house by 0500.)
Stopped at MacDonaldâ€™s cause I was hungry and am home now. Think Iâ€™ll take apart my radio/rig and mount it in the Caravan and I wonâ€™t have to do that tomorrow.
Was coming back from filling the gas can, and came up behind a woman doing 5 mph on our 15 mph dirt road. So I went to go around her. She tried cutting me off, and when that didnâ€™t work, stayed right beside me until I had to slow down. She fell in behind me and stayed on my ass all the way to my house. Cussed me out for driving unsafe and passing her on a dirt road where â€œyou have no control and people walkâ€ and more. If anyone made it unsafe it was she; by speeding up and trying not to let me pass her. Dipshidiot. (I knew what I was doing. Road was clear of everything but her.) You donâ€™t want people passing you? Do the fucking speed limit.
Iâ€™m almost expecting her husband to show up. If he does, Iâ€™m going to call 911 and say that thereâ€™s someone on my property threatening me and I want to know if I can shoot him legally? If the Cops show up theyâ€™re welcome to look at the dashcam video.
My Syma X5C drone came in today. Charged the battery and gave it a test flight. I still like to run into things. Itâ€™s light! And tough; since Iâ€™ve already run into multiple things and itâ€™s still working. Donâ€™t like the USB charging though. Iâ€™ll give it a better test this weekend at Field Day.
I got to pick SWMBO up at the QFC tonight. Thatâ€™s always nice. She ate in my room while watching â€œReal Steelâ€ and that was cool too.
But, not, this old guy (Old Guy) is gonna go lay down and read a bit.
