Holy Crap! THAT Long!

RachaelSeems a lot of time has passed that I haven’t any damned clue what the Hell happened. I know I’ve been mostly home, working in the basement and other things; but it’s all run together.

Did build a waterbed frame and took most of last Monday to get it put up in the bedroom. Sleeps a LOT more comfortably than the “old” bed. Once the water bladders warmed up it’s been fairly nice. Still would pay for a decent nights sleep though. Tired of Old Guy midnight walks to pee. Plus any noise wakes me.

Lost power one day last week for a few hours. Woke up when my cpap quit feeding me the air I need to survive! Had my radio’s (permanently on batteries now) and my 4g tablet (and phone) so I didn’t really lack AnitaPage-removebgfor things to do. And once it got light outside me and the dog went for our walks anyway.

Other than that it’s just SSDD around here. Will Damned Sure Be Glad When Winter Is Over though! We aren’t having the minus temps they’re having back east, but still, it’s cold outside. Going to get wet again starting tonight. Keeps it warmer around here but, it’s wet.

NMARES meeting went well last Thursday. We’ll be meeting in the Library from now on though since Fred is having to close his office. Bummer. About Fred.

Strip 2

Just not a lot going on. This Windows computer is working great but I really don’t like Windows 10. Especially when it doesn’t let me connect to my NAS because of “security issues.” Something about smb2 vs smb4 or something like that. Gonna have to get elbow deep into it and get it fixed. Pisses me off though.

Had to partition most of my drives on the Linux machine. Their partition manager said my 5 TB drive and half the other 5 TB drive weren’t partitioned. So I spent a WEEK backing everything up before repartitioning them. Now everything seems to be working good. Still copying things back…

And that’s it. It’s Cold outside. Still gets dark way to early. Doing things in the basement and around the house. I’m still old and boring.

Used My Winter Coat Today

AnitaPage-removebgCause it was freakin’ COLD out there! But I still have to go for our morning walk, so, buckle up White Boy and get her done. Even later in the early afternoon it was freezing out there!

Making an experiment for dinner. Chicken Stew. Recipe looked good online, and I managed to stay pretty close to following it, so though I’d give it a try. I’ll let you know.

b_P1120904Not going to get the yeasu 991a yet. With the Renter moving out (boo hoo) I need to finish some projects and get other’s started with the last of her rent money. We may be using our credit card to get other things done to the MILA that need to be done and who knows how long before we get another Renter.

Just not a lot going on around here. Lots to do but lacking the motivation to get it done. Tired all the time. Wonder if vitamins would help? Hmmm… We need to perfect Shell Person technology. I’d transfer over in a heartbeat. No I wouldn’t. Not until the very last minute.

Was A Better Movie Than I Thought It Would Be

Now I just seem to be rambling. Old Guy.

So, to get to the point: The Chicken Stew didn’t taste that good. Too Basil-ly. It’s too fuckin’ cold outside for my taste. It’s supposed to start raining again any hour now. And I’m Old and Boring.

Actually Missed Date Day Yesterday

70e50bf89e79b74c4efe49a53195072dWe didn’t go on Date Day cause SWMBO is down in San Diego visiting her brother before heading off to Oregon, Ohio to visit her folks. She’s been itching to go visit her brother ever since I visited him last July (after my step-mom’s funeral) and reported back to her that “That boy is fucked up.” Man, her “fix-it mode” kicked in and she’s been chomping at the bit to get down there and get started on him. Poor guy.

So we couldn’t have Date-Day yesterday. I was going to go out anyway; and wound up going to Safeway for $32 worth of stuff and having a single pizza bread thingie while watching Amazing Spaces. And except for missing SWMBO it was okay.

106243_D0210b_76d36258.JPGNot a lot going on around here. Me and the Dog still go for our walks even though the weather has turned rather cool. Hasn’t really been raining a lot so that’s good. Except the trees really need the rain.

Today was a fairly normal day for us. Even with SWMBO gone for a couple of weeks. So used to eating around 1530 that I had dinner ready and was eating by 1600. Will be looking for a snack later …

And that’s it. For some reason (The onset of Winter?) I just don’t feel like posting as much as I have in the past. Part of it is I’m so boring. Part is that I have other things on my mind lately. And a really Big part is that I’m boring. Even to myself.

Sixty-Six And I Just Won My First Cage Fight!

Fucking Canary never knew what hit it!

I don’t really have anything. Found out the other day that I had some Rx’s at the Naval Hospital Pharmacy that I needed to pick up. Timely since I had just run out of the main medication I use. (The one that slows my heart down and allows it to beat. I like that one!) So, made a trip to the pharmacy and got in and out in under an hour and a half. Not bad! Must have been a slow day for them. Plus I got there at 0800.

Not a lot going on around here. SSDD mostly. Wx is up and down. Mater’s still coming in (can’t ear them fast enough). Dog’s still doggin’. SWMBO ate that one gigantic freakin’ beet I grew for her. Didn’t hear her retching so I guess she liked it.

Friend came over and we messed with setting up a packet station in my shack. I’m going to have to get my own Winlink log in and go from there. May dedicate that tri-bander I have to the cause since I really don’t use it much. Matter of fact: I listen to my radio’s WAY more than I talk. Maybe I should just switch to Shortwave.

He also took a bunch of those styrofoam blocks used for making those cement houses that I’ve had laying around these past 11 years or so. (WHY can’t I remember what they’re called!?!?) ICF! That’s it. Insulated Concrete Forms. I hate Senior Moments.

So, I’ve been “doing things” around the house that I’ve been meaning to do. Working on the pantry today. Found 2 cases of home made chili that I did back in 2014. Put them on top of the chili I canned in 2016 so I’d eat them first. Had a jar for dinner and it was okay. Wouldn’t drive across town for it though. (My chili never seems to turn out the same when I make a new batch. One year it’ll be great. Next year it’ll be blah. Go figure!)

And that’s about it. Not feeling very well this evening. Trying to get a headache. Usually means the Wx is changing again. Sux!
