Happy Birthday To Me. Happy Birthday To Me. Happy Birthday To Meeeeeee. Happy Birthday To Me.

Seventy-One! Who’da thunk I’da made it this far. Damn. A good friend/adopted sister called at 0630 this morning to wish me happy birthday and we talked for over 2 hours. Man I had to pee!

Didn’t do anything special. Made butterfly coconut shrimp and fries for dinner. That new Ninja Air Fryer we bought last Friday sure works good at making “fries.” And bacon. Made bacon in it this morning and it turned out damn near perfect.

Anywho, SWMBO had an old friend drop by and bring her husband so I got to keep him entertained. Nice guy. I could look forward to them visiting again. I think I sold another Harvest right freeze dryer though. He really liked the astronaut ice cream.

Not a whole lot else going on. Heart is still playing games. Doc put me back on the pee pills. I regained almost 10 of the 17 lbs I lost because I retain a LOT of fluids. We’ll see how it goes. Still staying on my “diet” which ain’t a diet but a eating habits change. Not having as much progress quitting sugar as I’d like. Slow and steady wins the day though. I didn’t quit smoking the first 50 times I tried either.

The left side of my head aches and I’m thinking it’s because of all the excitement today. I mean, there had to be some excitement somewhere in the world, right? I really think I’m missing some setting on my new CPAP and not getting the full effects of the treatment and been waking with a low grade headache. Have an appointment with the pulmonary folks tomorrow and we’ll get it all worked out.

Tape & Paste buy still isn’t through with the FILA. Heck, he doesn’t even show up for work until 1100-1200 and leaves anywhere between 1630 & 2100. Mostly he does get in 6 hours of work. He’s having trouble getting the paste to dry out as fast as he’d like so he can go on to the texturing part so tonight we’re leaving all the doors and windows open. I kinda sorta blocked the lower part of the doors so no big animals can wander inside and try to take up residence. Or cause more damage.


Logged in an “played” with both ChatGPT and Bard over the past couple of days. Can’t see where either would be of much use to me. Both seem pretty knowledgeable and quick to respond. Both gave pretty much the same answers to the same questions. Both admonished me to continue to see my Doctor.

Sure will be glad when the FILA is finished and I can go somewhere and get out from under all these trees for awhile!
