Didnâ€™t get as much as I was asking; but really didnâ€™t expect to. Still, $700 will come in really handy right now. We can at least re-stock the freezer if nothing else!
Now I *need* to sell the Digger. (Donâ€™t want to but I really ainâ€™t using her anymore.)
Just not much else going on around here. Usual daily housework but I didnâ€™t have to fix dinner for anyone but me tonight. SWMBO had her usual Monday lunch with the girls and I have no idea where our son is (whoâ€™d Iâ€™d have had cook for himself anyway).
Been working on my various web sites and trying to get things more secure and pleasant looking. Listening to â€œWorldâ€™s Toughest Fixesâ€ in the background. No Nets tonight.
|Except the Wx is getting worse every day! Colder. Wetter. Hasnâ€™t snowed yet; and I thought it would by now. Ah well. So much for my prediction abilities!
Still running my 2-meter Net on Sundayâ€™s @ 1930. Check-ins vary and it doesnâ€™t last more than 45 minutes or so; but itâ€™s fun. Still having problems hearing many people on the 10-meter Net on Tuesdays.
Still the Treasurer for MCARC and still going to the meetings on the 2nd Saturday.
NMARES is still dying. Slowly. Inevitably Not supposed to be a meeting this month but I think the Club President will post that he will be at the QFC lounge area â€œjust in case.â€.
Have everything done in the M-I-L apt but sweeping and swabbing. Already posted an ad on Craigâ€™s List. No one has contacted us yet; but they will.
Someone hacked my blog yesterday and I wound up rebuilding the whole damned thing. They put a link at the top that opened some gambling site in Germany or Russia. I have no idea how they did it; but Iâ€™m (again!) researching how to lock everything down. Luckily rebuilding this is really just deleting everything but my settings and uploading the original files. Still a pain in the ass though. Itâ€™s a good thing I have this set as my home page and can notice changes pretty much quickly!
Scanned a box of SWMBOâ€™s old pictures for her. Came across some b&w pictures I thought was our son, Patrick, but they turned out to be her mom when she was about a year old. I swear they could pass as twins! Kind of made me miss Patrick someâ€¦
Just not much going on around here. Everyone is closing down for winter and itâ€™s been raining too much to get out on day trips. Weâ€™re pretty broke too. SWMBO finally got a job doing coding but it pays only $3.50/record; and some of those records can run hundreds of pages!
I check the job sites I use every morning but havenâ€™t found anything yet. Aside from having no skills other than Tech Support Iâ€™m pretty old. There are way too many techs out of a job and companies want to hire the young to fill any jobs they do have. Obamacare and the recession has killed a lot of jobs also. Weâ€™ll survive but will have to tighten our belts some.
Put my dump truck, digger & the RV up on Craigâ€™s list also. No inquiries yet. Turns out the curved glass in the dump truck is worth more than the whole truck but I donâ€™t want to remove it then have a hulk left over that Iâ€™d have to get rid of. Easier for me if someone would take the whole thing!
Thatâ€™s it for now. Merry Christmas everyone!
