Vulcan Vivisectionist Visits Villa Via Verona

Figures That The Only Red-Shirt To Survive A Fight Would Be A Good Looking Blond Female!

Pretty normal second Saturday of the month so far. Got up early and headed out to Shelton for the MCARC meeting. It was okay. Still nothing decided about much of anything; but that’s the way the Club works. And our “new” repeater is still being tested! It’ll probably be in “testing” four years from now.

Just playing around and watching Season 2 of the original Star Trek while waiting on SWMBO to get home and take me out for dinner. Waiting on a package from Amazon with my new through-the-windows 144/440 antenna and a Can Crusher. All that’s supposed to be here today; if Amazon Prime Membership means anything. Still not sure how that’s supposed to work; I’ve yet to order anything and get it in 2 days. Half the time it takes 2 days for them to even pull the order and get it ready for shipping.


And it’s still raining off and on. Joy.

My Lovely-Young-Bride of almost 30 years got home, then took me to Sisters Restaurant in Shelton for dinner. Tried something called Chicken Marsala. Yuck. Think I’ll stick to the chili burger and fries from now on. Was thinking of fish but didn’t like their selection. Ah well. SWMBO enjoyed her dinner though.

Then we stopped by a quilt shop and I let her browse a bit before heading to Walmart. Where we spent way too much mondy. I cannot pass the blu-ray bin! This time I got 3 of the X-Men movies. She got herself some new clothes cause she’s lost 2 pant sizes: Woo Woo! Proud of her.

lil06aSo we be home now. Except she just left to go to Safeway cause she finds she needs some oatmeal to make peanut butter oatmeal cookies. She should be back in a few.

Anyway, cookies are cooling on the counter top. SWMBO is off in her room trying to find a video for her class at church tomorrow. I think this Old Guy is going to go lay down and read. Since it’s already well over an hour later than I usually do that. Weekend!

Y’all hve fun!

Prodrome. How I Love Thee. How I Love Thee. My Dear Old Prodrome.


This describes me to the T. Was sitting here at my desk at about 0700 when, of a sudden, I couldn’t look directly at my monitors cause of the “heat wave” in my vision. Which did it’s usual spreading out. Took a couple of heavy duty motrin and, so far, I haven’t had the actual migraine. But I do have that post migraine “zombie like” feeling.

Not that I want to eat your brains! But I don’t feel like being very physical. So I’ve been mostly sitting here ripping Season 2 of Star Trek TOS and watching the occasional episode. Quietly though. Very quietly.

And, in any case, not a whole lot going on today anyway. Had some sprinkling outside and the Sun only peeks out occasionally. Nice and warm when it does, but otherwise cool. Not really a hang outside day.



So I did some easy stuff inside that I’ve been meaning to do. Straighten up my room mostly. I sure have a lot of Windows Programs on CD on my shelf! Maybe I’ll put together a Windows 7 machine just to install all this “stuff.” I do kind of miss Vue 7. And I am moving all the other “stuff” I have (data backups and such) it all from the old external 500gb drives to new USB 2TB drives. Involves a lot of copying things around.


SWMBO got home and very nicely asked if I’d take her to MacDonald’s. Well, of course! Tis a miniscule thing the love of my life asks of me. No idea what she had but I had a medium vanilla shake & fry butts. Was good but I’ll have to stay up another hour or pay the price!

So, I think I’ll rip these 8 CD’s for her then hit the rack.

I Could Be A Charter Member!

wwc10aI should join Lazy Turds Anonymous. Aside from all my usual chores, checking mail, washing my new jeans, and putting most of the molding on the new linen closet, I haven’t accomplished a thing today. Lazy Turd.

Oh, I did make a faux BBQ Pork Chop, roasted taters, and mixed veggies for dinner; but I wouldn’t call that work or anything. (But it was yummy!) About to add to my body fat index by consuming some jello.

Added some yogurt. Tasted terrible!  I could market it under “Yo-Lo” I guess. Or “Jel-Gurt.” Or I could quit being fookin’ silly.


It’s raining now. Supposed to rain off and on for the next 5+ days. Oh, Joy!

ass1aAnd that’s it. That was my day. After dinner I just watched a couple of episodes of Star Trek: TOS until SWMBO got home. She’s talking about laying down early tonight. Think I’ll join her!

Remember: All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible. T. E. Lawrence (One of my favorite quotes from High School.)

Three To Beam Up, Mr. Scott.

Damn! Rand Had Some Fine Legs!It’s Wednesday. Correction: It’s a damned normal Wednesday around here. So far. Sun came out long enough for me to sit on the front steps and eat my cereal; then it went back to cloudy. Not as cool as yesterday, but not warm by any measurement that counts.

I do get to pick SWMBO up at the Ferry Landing at around 1430 today so she can make her dental appointment in Silverdale this late afternoon. That’ll be fun.

Otherwise, all I’ve accomplished today is, well, diddly squat. IF you don’t count my usual chores. So it’s time to get off my fat Old ass and get something done. Still sore from yesterday so I’ll probably take it easy.


So I got out and mowed the front lawns. Took the Dog for a walk around the back 40. Worked on my frames a bit. Ripped some more cd’s for SWMBO.

Took off from here @ 1400. Picked SWMBO up and we headed for Silverdale. Ate at Burger King. Dropped her off at the Dentist and I went to Home Depot for more 2”x4” boards. Went back and watched a movie while waiting on her. Traffic back home was a bitch. I suppose it was a fairly normal “Rush Hour,” but I’m usually not out and about during that time. Ah well.

We be home safe and I gotta unload the truck.


MCARC 2-meter Wednesday Evening Chat Net went well. Net Control says my signal suddenly cut out in the middle of a sentence. Hmmm. Gonna have to check that out.
