Time Passes When You’re …

Having fun!

You know; I’m just not sure what, if anything, I did last Thursday. Probably just more of the same. Just after posting last Wednesday, the News and Wx sites I read all predicted SNOW through Friday morning. And it did. North and East of Seattle got slammed with some places getting around 6 inches. Didn’t see a flake here. I even seem to remember the sun coming out for awhile. Wasn’t warm or anything; just the sun came out.


Friday was our usual Date Night and SWMBO took me and our son to Taco Bell in Port Orchard. Then we spent too much money Walgreen’s getting me some socks and t-shirts. Then spent way too much money at Safeway on the way home. Our freezer is packed!


Didn’t do too much today. SWMBO was off at the Genealogy Library and I just kind of lounged around the house and got a couple things done outside (still COLD out there) and played with Vue7 a lot while watching “The Universe.”


Got a guy coming over tomorrow to look at the Digger. Says he’s definitely interested in buying her. I really hate to sell it, but, we really need the money. If we got a couple of bills paid off (we don’t really owe that much out) we at least wouldn’t have to worry about them. If we could sell off SWMBO’s car (or economically get a cheaper one) neither of us would have to work! Thank you Navy Retirement!

And that’s it. Think I’ll go lay down and read.

Salmon Patties For Dinner…

With “fixins.” Other than that haven’t done a damn thing all day. Been downloading the latest version of Linux and even managed to get my coat into the dryer, but haven’t really done much of anything today.

Did get the broken hydraulic hose off the Digger and managed to get the ignition switch free of the chassis, but, haven’t actually removed the switch. Too many wires hooked to the thing! Took several pictures of where the wires are attached and will label the wires before unhooking them cause I don’t want to mess it up. Monday or Tuesday I’ll get to see if the guy at the Auto Parts store can get me a switch pretty close to it. Not too expensive, I hope. Yep, unhooked the battery before getting into the switch!

Digger Ignition Switch

Yesterday, SWMBO took me to Taco Bell over in Bremerton then to WinCo Foods to spend too much money. Got a bunch of things we needed though. They’re fairly reasonably priced.

Don't Forget How The Wires Go!

Still getting used to looking out the window from my Shack and NOT seeing the Dump Truck and RV.

Other than that there just isn’t much going on around here. Wasn’t too bad out today, Wx wise, so I did get the dog walked!

Some of the Innards of the Digger

Gotta go play with SWMBO’s computer to see if I can get it to see the Movie Drive…

Oh, I post to three blogs “just in case” we get too broke and I have to close down this (www.stanking.org) site. The WordPress.com & Blogger Blog are kinda sorta Backups. Unfortunately, all three post to Twitter whenever I make a new post. Sorry about that. One of them posts to Tumblr and that makes a Twitter post. Maybe I’m spreading myself too thin. Or spreading myself around too much? You Decide…
