Actually Missed Date Day Yesterday

70e50bf89e79b74c4efe49a53195072dWe didn’t go on Date Day cause SWMBO is down in San Diego visiting her brother before heading off to Oregon, Ohio to visit her folks. She’s been itching to go visit her brother ever since I visited him last July (after my step-mom’s funeral) and reported back to her that “That boy is fucked up.” Man, her “fix-it mode” kicked in and she’s been chomping at the bit to get down there and get started on him. Poor guy.

So we couldn’t have Date-Day yesterday. I was going to go out anyway; and wound up going to Safeway for $32 worth of stuff and having a single pizza bread thingie while watching Amazing Spaces. And except for missing SWMBO it was okay.

106243_D0210b_76d36258.JPGNot a lot going on around here. Me and the Dog still go for our walks even though the weather has turned rather cool. Hasn’t really been raining a lot so that’s good. Except the trees really need the rain.

Today was a fairly normal day for us. Even with SWMBO gone for a couple of weeks. So used to eating around 1530 that I had dinner ready and was eating by 1600. Will be looking for a snack later …

And that’s it. For some reason (The onset of Winter?) I just don’t feel like posting as much as I have in the past. Part of it is I’m so boring. Part is that I have other things on my mind lately. And a really Big part is that I’m boring. Even to myself.

Sixty-Six And I Just Won My First Cage Fight!

Fucking Canary never knew what hit it!

I don’t really have anything. Found out the other day that I had some Rx’s at the Naval Hospital Pharmacy that I needed to pick up. Timely since I had just run out of the main medication I use. (The one that slows my heart down and allows it to beat. I like that one!) So, made a trip to the pharmacy and got in and out in under an hour and a half. Not bad! Must have been a slow day for them. Plus I got there at 0800.

Not a lot going on around here. SSDD mostly. Wx is up and down. Mater’s still coming in (can’t ear them fast enough). Dog’s still doggin’. SWMBO ate that one gigantic freakin’ beet I grew for her. Didn’t hear her retching so I guess she liked it.

Friend came over and we messed with setting up a packet station in my shack. I’m going to have to get my own Winlink log in and go from there. May dedicate that tri-bander I have to the cause since I really don’t use it much. Matter of fact: I listen to my radio’s WAY more than I talk. Maybe I should just switch to Shortwave.

He also took a bunch of those styrofoam blocks used for making those cement houses that I’ve had laying around these past 11 years or so. (WHY can’t I remember what they’re called!?!?) ICF! That’s it. Insulated Concrete Forms. I hate Senior Moments.

So, I’ve been “doing things” around the house that I’ve been meaning to do. Working on the pantry today. Found 2 cases of home made chili that I did back in 2014. Put them on top of the chili I canned in 2016 so I’d eat them first. Had a jar for dinner and it was okay. Wouldn’t drive across town for it though. (My chili never seems to turn out the same when I make a new batch. One year it’ll be great. Next year it’ll be blah. Go figure!)

And that’s about it. Not feeling very well this evening. Trying to get a headache. Usually means the Wx is changing again. Sux!
