Yes. I. Am. A. Whovian.

Really enjoyed this latest episode! The “new” Doctor is sometimes strange. Sometimes just plain Weird. But I think I like him. And Clara Oswald is the best Companion ever!


Pretty normal Sunday so far. Sun’s out but not shining directly on the house yet. Supposed to get up around 80 degrees so maybe I won’t have to get dressed at all today.
Still have a lot of cleaning up to do after the taping & pasting yesterday. I may or may not do that today as it is Sunday and supposed to be a day of rest. (Yeah, right!)


SWMBO brought friends home to quilt and I made dinner for us all. Corned beef & cabbage and mashed potato’s. Was yummy! Letting them take the left-over’s home cause it will not get eaten here. Normally, things sit in our fridge until they make their own gravy (whether they’re supposed to or not) before I throw it out.


And that’s about it. Just wasting time until the MCARC 2-meter Chat Net @ 1930. Guess I ought to check in this week since I am the Net Control…

I Think I’ll Sue My Denturist.

Because, in this day of “Let’s Sue Everybody For Everything” Gone Wild, IF he hadn’t fitted me for, manufactured, and installed my dentures, I wouldn’t be as fat as I am today. After all, you can eat only so much with 3 or 4 good teeth left in your mouth. Without them (the dentures) SWMBO would have had to “pre-chew” my food for me and we’d have been that much closer doing things together; so I guess I could also sue him for alienation of affection. I fully expect to win given the dipshidiot Judges we have. I’ll keep you posted.

They'd Make Some Good Looking Kids.

Really nice day out so I really did try to spend as much time as I could outside. Me and the Dog took off all our clothes, no, wait, I never did get any on so forget that. Anywho, the Dog and I toured the back 40 a few times or otherwise spent time out.

Playing With

Moved the Tent Trailer to a slightly different spot for winter storage. Set it all up to make sure all the pipes are drained and opened up the water tank. Tomorrow (probably) I’ll put most everything back into it, spray it liberally with bug spray, and close it back up for the Winter. Cause it’s getting to be about that time of the year.

We bought a couple of packages of BBQ Ribs at Safeway the other day ($5/ea) and had those for supper this evening (after charcoaling them on the BBQ, of course). SWMBO made some kind of rice with mater stuff in it and I added peas. Was good.

Breath Taking Clara Oswald!

Watched the latest Doctor Who. Still not sure if I like him or not.

ARES Check-in this month then the MCARC 2-meter Sunday Evening Chat Net. I really am getting burned out on being Net Control every week. Maybe it’s time to rotate it for awhile?… Turned out I could be heard, but could not hear. WAY too much interference. I could barely understand what was being said. So I bowed out for tonight. AE7GC ran it and did a pretty good job.

Really Got Nice Today.

Which kind of surprised me since yesterday was kind of crappy. But it got up to 80 degrees or so and was sunny. Neato! So I spent as much time outside as I could. Mostly working on that big ass antenna; taking it apart and getting it cleaned. So far I’ve only lost 1 screw and 2 nuts off the thing!


Was taking my shower this morning when I (quite suddenly) remembered that I was supposed to pick up my new Rx last Saturday. Damn! So I had to get dressed and make a run to the Naval Hospital where I waited about 90 minutes to get my meds. Which ain’t bad considering I got there about 1030.


Was on my walk around the back 40 and found some blackberries bigger than my thumb. Tasty! So I picked a hatful of them, brought them back to the house, put them in a freezer bag and into the freezer. So, about February I’ll be having blackberry muffins. Again. Because I’ll probably pick some more tomorrow and make muffins tomorrow night. Probably.


Need to make my annual supply of my chili. I could do that tomorrow (an all day affair!) but really need to finish painting the deck. Yeah, I need to finish painting the deck before bad weather really sets in. And I suppose I should get off my fat lazy old ass and finish painting the deck.


So I’d better make a Safeway run for the chili supplies!

Hot Tuesday. Only 85 Though.

But, it’ll do. Today has been one of the most SSDD Day’s that I have ever had around here. Which means boring, for you, if you expect me to have any earth shattering pronouncements or happenings. Unless you consider watering the lawn and Garden important to the National Security, the overall health of the World, or pointing to the destiny of the Universe; then, nope.


Made the bed, got the dishes done, and generally straightened up around the house. Took Dog for a tour of the back 40. Weeded. Tore out the dead pea plants. Picked veggies that needed to be picked. Maters are starting to come in.

Exciting shit, I know. But that’s my life, and, other than one day making SWMBO a wonderful wife there just isn’t much going on in my normal, usual, daily life.


Oh, I did forget to get dressed before driving down to check the mail. Hate doing that only because I wouldn’t know what to do if the truck broke down. But I get busy doing things and think “quick trip” and off I go. One would think I’m old. One would be correct.

I Need A Video Wall Like This!

SWMBO’s Son is picking her up tonight. He’s going to Calif Thursday to visit his “real” Dad so I’ll be taking her into work Friday (and Monday & Tuesday, I think). That’s okay. I like riding with her!

MCARC 10-meter Chat Net @ 1930. Looks like I’m going to make it this week. Cool!
