Just A Regular Thursday.

Throw01aThrow02aToday was a day pretty much like every other day around here. Finishing up the canning of my chili. The usual chores. It was sunny just enough to take the Dog for a walk. And then it went back to being sometimes sunny. (Pretty normal for Western WaRshington.)

Was watching an old video I have of a “Hollie Reunion” and captured a pretty nice shot of my Mom. Made a .gif out of it and uploaded it to FB; where it didn’t move. ??? I’m really getting tired of FB.

Am uploading some more of my pictures to my Google Drive. I figure since I’m paying for 100 Gig I might as well use it. Taking forever though. Wish we had cable here instead of this DSL. Up/Downloads take a long time here.


Last time we went to Cash-N-Carry we bought a case of V8 Juice. The Spicy V8 Juice (by accident). But, I’m finding that I like it. My stomach won’t after awhile; but it tastes pretty good.

Made an actual “dump run” today. (And NOT the kind from the pantry in the back of the garage to the bathroom!) Only cost $10 to empty both our cans. (Should be less, but, there is no way the County is going to lower their prices. Still WAY cheaper than having someone pick it up!)

Anywho, that’s really all about my day. SWMBO is home. No Nets tonight. Medication taken. Chores done for the day. Think I’ll go lay down and read a bit.

Turns Out I Was Not Alone In My Ills …

topless1aSeems SWMBO also had an upset stomach & Runs for part of last Sunday & Monday. I had them big time yesterday. The only thing we’ve eaten in common over the weekend was Burnt Ends & Ribs at Famous Dave’s. She didn’t get it too bad cause she didn’t eat all her ribs. I, however, brought most of mine and the remainder of hers home and ate them Monday. Probably why I got way sicker. IF it was that that caused us to get sick.

Canning my chili today. The two longest wait times when canning are waiting for the damned water to boil so you can start the pressure, and, waiting for the damned water to cool down so you can remove the finished jars. Butt-ton of waiting. Other than that, easy peasy.

Made my appointments at Madigan for the Vascular Surgeon. Joy. Never been to Madigan before but imagine I’ll have to leave 3 or 4 hours early to get there and find parking and where the Hell I’m supposed to be. Maybe I should park off-base and take a bus/cab in? OnStar, Help!


Feeling kind of lazy cause this leg pain makes it to where I can’t walk very far nor very fast. Had to quit using the treadmill and me and the Dog are limited to hobbling around the yard. Would hate to get up the road and be unable to get back! Still, this sucks cause I’m usually way more active than I can be now. Sure hope we can fix this. (Whatever you do, don’t get Old!)

WTF? Out of 28 pints of chili, 8 of them didn’t seal. WTF? I’ve never had more than a couple not seal. I’ll try to get them done again.

The MCARC 2-meter Wednesday Evening Chat Net went well. About 8 check-ins and everyone was readable. Cool!
