to everyone. And Happy New Year if I don’t get back before then. (Not that I’m going anywhere.)
Started lightly snowing around 1500 (or so) and it’s still going. About 1/2 inch sitting on top of things. Looks like SWMBO will get a white Christmas this year! Cool!
Other than that: just not a lot going on around here. My “cold” has setteled into a killer runny nose; but otherwise I don’t feel too bad.Dog and I still do out walks and I still have chores to get done during the day.
Life as usual then.
For the first half of the day. Talk about unexpected! Caught everyone by surprise. I had told the Club that it was gonna start snowing around the 25th or so. Nope! Missed it by a mile this year. Was kinda nice though. Cold.
Me and Verizon: I had two LG tablets. Broke the first one then got the second one when I got my new phone. Broke it. Turns out I’ve been paying insurance to replace them if broken. Tried that last night. Turns out my deductable is $99 (not the $20 I was told it’d be) AND the device has been discontinued.
So, I called Verizon customer service to complain and ask for a refund of all the insurance money I spent for nothing. She connected me with the place (Asomething) and they said they’d send me this other tablet. For $99. Nope. Sorry. Can’t afford it. Old Guy. Fixed Income. You know the drill.
So, not really happy with Verizon right now. Can’t believe I spent $18/mo for almost 2 years for insurance that did me absolutely no good.
Made this “dirty rice” stuff for dinner. Added hamburger and some peas. Should Have Paid More Attention To The “Real Cajun Spices” splashed all over the front of the box. Phew! Spicy!
Anywho, picked SWMBO up at the QFC as per the usual Friday evening routine. We be home. I be going to lay down and read awhile.
Oh, BTW, that new waterbed we put together: Works great. Wednesday I woke with a headache (probably due to Wx changes). So, Wednesday night I last looked at the clock at 2303. Next thing I know it’s 0530! Felt Great All Day Thursday! OMG. The difference was something else. Nice!
Last night I slept most of the night (only woke up once around 0430) and felt pretty good all day even if it did snow. Me and the Dog did about 8 walks about. Nice.
Freakin’ Snow Today.
It started snowing at 0730 this morning, I know cause I was sitting here looking out the window, and didn’t really stop until about 1530 this afternoon. We had 2 inches on the ground (and on our deck railing) by 1100. Got some great video on my phone.
So, the Dog and I went for several walks. He loves the snow! I don’t know what he’s looking for, but, he’ll stich his head under the snow looking for it.
Made the mail run at our usual time. On the way back got stuck behind one of our neighbors (that lives down the other end of the lane) stuck halfway up the hill. Waited while he cleared tire track’s; but that didn’t work. When he slid off to the side of the road I was able to pass him. Stopped and asked him if he had a tow-strap; he did. So we hooked it up and I pulled him the rest of the way up the hill. (Nice of me. Don’t tell anyone!)
Other than that just not a lot going on. Can’t remember anything really happening yesterday except for occasional snow flurries.
The MCARC 10-meter Tuesday Chat Net went well. I heard most everyone. They didn’t have any trouble hearing me! Glad I got my long-wire back up!
Lazy Sunday. Got all my usual chores done; including laundry. Dog walking done (and we met a new neighbor while out). Big Bang Theory is converting. Radio is going on in the background. Been trying to snow outside but have had only occasional flurries.
Yesterday my Schweetie took me to the little Mexican restaurant in Shelton for dinner. It was good. Made our usual stop at Walmart and I bought one of those Keurig thingies. (Surprise, it actually makes a decent cup of coffee. And tea.) She still had homework to do so I spent the evening just messing around.
This evening, SWMBO wound up sitting in my room and watching “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” and just enjoying each other’s company. Nice. Spending time with each other. Movie was okay too.
And I still managed to get in on the MCARC 2-meter Sunday Evening Chat Net! And they heard me! Cool!
But, that’s really all that there is today. Except: If it ain’t gonna snow for 9-15 feet, let’s end this Winter shit and move on to Spring. Summer would be better though.
