We didnâ€™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. Sheâ€™s been itching to go visit her brother ever since I visited him last July (after my step-momâ€™s funeral) and reported back to her that â€œThat boy is fucked up.â€ Man, her â€œfix-it modeâ€ kicked in and sheâ€™s been chomping at the bit to get down there and get started on him. Poor guy.
So we couldnâ€™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.
Not a lot going on around here. Me and the Dog still go for our walks even though the weather has turned rather cool. Hasnâ€™t really been raining a lot so thatâ€™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 â€¦
And thatâ€™s it. For some reason (The onset of Winter?) I just donâ€™t feel like posting as much as I have in the past. Part of it is Iâ€™m so boring. Part is that I have other things on my mind lately. And a really Big part is that Iâ€™m boring. Even to myself.
Woke up this morning thinking I needed to go to the Goodwill Store in East Bremerton for some reason. So, after a stop at the Vape Shop and LOWES, I drove over there and walked around awhile. Nothing grabbed my attention nor did I find anything I couldnâ€™t live without.
BUT, I did see an OPEN Radio Shack! No shit. On the way to check it out I stopped in a junk store called â€œJenâ€™s Atticâ€ and perused their selection. They must think everything they have is an antique since everything is priced that way. WAY too expensive! But I did see a couple of 16 mm projectors; which I havenâ€™t seen since my old audio/visual days in High School. Cool. Doubt you could find a film to show though (even if they worked).
Stopped in the embroiderer place and was impressed enough to order myself a ball cap (blue) with my call sign on it. Also ordered a Navy Blue T-shirt for SWMBO with SWMBO on it. Both should be ready next week.
The Radio Shack was an actual Radio Shack. Everything I looked at seemed rather spendy to me; but it was all there. As long as you arenâ€™t looking for real electronic stuff, that is. Seems the only way theyâ€™ve stayed open is selling phones. Whatever! Bremerton has an open Radio Shack.
Drive home was a pain since it was raining and Friday traffic was already starting to build up. But made it safe. Iâ€™m just wondering if I was supposed to find something at Goodwill, the Embroiderer, or the open Radio Shack? So much for my hunches.
And we be home from picking SWMBO up. Itâ€™s a bit too late to watch â€œMinionsâ€ tonight so weâ€™ve planned it for tomorrow evening as the later part of our date. Cool!
