Holy Crap. COLD Out There!

Took the Dog for a short walk (mostly just around the house) and even he was anxious to get back into the house to warm up. No wonder it’s so hard to get him to go outside to take a poop! Something wrong with Sunny but Freezing!


Not a lot happening today. Mail run. Couple of walks. Installed some “cansolator” things into one of the cabinets to test out holding Thrive stuff. (I don’t like it. Way too much empty space. So far.)

BikAir4aPut some wood on the metal shelf I installed in my room a couple of weeks ago and put all those planes I got from my FIL on it. Too high.

X-Plane for a couple of hours. Trying to learn to land a helo without bouncing all over the place. Thinking maybe I should volunteer to be a drone pilot for the Marines. (Yes, I could kill people that, as we say down South, need killin’.)

Submitted a bunch of pictures to Google Maps from places we’ve been. Fun. I take lots of pictures when we go places. Love those with SWMBO in them.

All the usual chores, of course.

MCARC 10-Meter Tuesday Evening Chat Net went well. Still haven’t heard anyone from Ohio though.

So. Guess I’ll quit boring y’all.

Got Tired Of Working On My Computer

btkw07aSo, after my appointment at Haselwood Cheverolet in Bremerton today (to fix a recalled driver’s-side seat belt retention thingamagiggy and it took only 1.5 hours instead of 3 like they were figureing) I made Blackberry Jam/Jelly.

And that was pretty much my day.

Oh, it got really cloudy and rained a bit, but we never did get any thunder. Dog and I took a walk between the bouts of rain. I got my feet a bit wet. He got soaked. (He’s a little Dog. Short legged freak!)

Really. Nothing else going on today.

I Like Studying History Occasionally

In Junior High and High School I had trouble remembering dates and names, but usually got the overall story right. That hasn’t changed. Mostly I liked hearing about how they did things in the past; normal everyday living type stuff. Even now, when I look at really old photographs, after seeing what the main subject is, I like to look around the background. See that guy sitting in that old car? What was he out doing? Was that lady “dressed up,” or was she dressed for everyday living? Look at that “Bread .03 Cents” sign. Cool!

We Need To Check The Bottom Of This Canyon For Life!

But, I’m at that age now where “History” to me means: What the Hell Did I have for dinner last night? Still, I like watching the Ken Burns Documentaries and things like that. Seems in my old age I’ve (finally) developed a passion for learning. I’ve already bought several courses from “The Great Courses” and plan to order more. Soon as I figure out what I want to study next.


Not much going on today. About to get off my fat, old, ass and start working on my room again. Think I’ll finish it off, before finishing the kitchen, so I can get my stuff moved back into it. Need to go buy some plastic to protect the floor when I paint. And my counter-tops. And figure out how I’m going to support the counter-tops. Thinking of free-floating them so I can move how I need to under them. We’ll see.


Made myself a pseudo-BBQ Pork Chop, Scalloped Potato’s, and corn/peas mix for dinner. Was so good I’m thinking of eating SWMBO’s share… (Which she might not eat anyway since she doesn’t like cold/rewarmed meat. But we’ll see.)

MCARC 10-meter Chat Net @ 1930 tonight. Other than that it’s pretty much SSDD around here. The “News” is only slightly interesting. Too many people claiming to “deserve” something.
