I *NEED* To Be Rich!

Mail Run. Regular Chores. Just enjoying this hot day! It’s nice to be able to take off all my clothes and go for a walk. I can walk about 1/2 mile around my property without seeing anyone (meaning neighbors). I’ve even let Alders grow between me and the neighbors (but that’s mostly because I can’t stand them and don’t want to see them anyway). I like this property, and, if it weren’t in the crappy State of WaRshington it would be fairly perfect. (Need fewer neighbors too.)


There’s 360 acres to the East of Bend, Oregon that I’d love to get. (Don’t let me win the lotto!) It’s wide open, fairly flat, and not a lot of trees, but I’d buy it in a heartbeat. Build a house right smack dab in the middle, plant trees for SWMBO, and leave the rest as is. Put a “Clothes Optional: If You Don’t Like It Turn Around” sign next to the driveway opening. Build a dome home with a tower for my radio room. Maybe a tower with SWMBO’s sewing room as the 3nd floor and my radio room on the fourth. Hot Tub/Sun deck on top, of course. Lot’s of triple paned insulated windows for the view.

Ah, I need to be 25 years younger. (And 75 pounds lighter; but we won’t go there.)


I get to pick SWMBO up tonight and for the next couple of days. Her son has a job in Ocean Shores that’ll last a couple of days. For some reason he took her car; which is now parked at his work place while he takes the company van.  Meanwhile, if we needed her car for some reason we’re just shit out of luck. He also left his truck parked in the way and didn’t leave me the keys to move the damned thing. I’m pretty sure he doesn’t do this shit on purpose, at least I hope he doesn’t, but it’s damned annoying anyway.

The MCARC 2-meter Wednesday Evening Chat Net went well with 8 check-ins. Gave a Field Day report. Reported that I talked to NC7V & AC7VA on 20-meters today.


Supposedly there’s someone coming over to buy the through-wall-window air conditioner I have for sale. You can’t find them on any store shelves since this “heat wave” started. Seems there’d be more demand for the one I have. Hmmm …

Sunny, Hot, Itchy, Itchy, Itchy Day!

Still cleaning up after Field Day. Finally got the BBQ cleaned. What a chore that was! After 3 days of use it really needed cleaning. Think I’ll line the inside with tin foil this time. May make it easier to clean. May not.


KE7NUQ and family came over to look at the Tent Trailer. Gave them the complete setting it up and let them sit around awhile in it. They liked it so much they want to buy it. Cool! I’m going to be taking it to their house Friday; they have to get their van set up to tow and they’re not sure when that’ll be. In the meantime it can sit in their driveway and they can practice setting it up and taking it down. (And I accidently put a hole in the screen door while showing it to them that I’ll have to fix before then. Klutzy me!)

Not much else going on. Planet Of The Apes (1968) marathon going on my monitor. Can of Dinty’s for dinner. Kind of lounging between outside and my desk.


SWMBO just called and I get to pick her up at the bus stop this evening after work. Cool!

Wednesday: And I forgot to post this last night. I blame it on SWMBO. She makes me forget things.



Even Caladryl Clear isn’t helping to stop this damned itching! The Aloe Vera with Lidocaine ain’t helping. Stopped counting mosquito bites at 62 but I know there’s more. AAAArrrrgggghhhh!!!! (Next year for Field Day I’ll wear long pants, long sleeved shirts, and one of those net-hat things!)


Nice hot, sunny, day but I didn’t get to spend as much time outside as I would’ve liked to. Busy cleaning out the Caravan, getting the dirty laundry done (cause there is absolutely no use getting clean laundry done), and ran all the dishes from the Caravan through the dishwasher. And all the other stuff I normally do. Gads! I’m a House-Husband!


Did make the run back to the Field Day site to let the Septic guy in to pick up the porta-potty. Nice ride there and back along the Sound. Stopped and got breakfast at Mickey-D’s on the way there and stopped at my bank on the way back. Traffic was kinda heavy through Belfair for some reason. And it doesn’t help that “They’ve” got steel plates all along the main drag. Bumpy too!

Well, SWMBO texted me that her son is running late and I’ll have to pick her up. Texted her back that I didn’t HAVE too, but it would be my pleasure. Always is.


Which I did and we’re back. Time to settle in for the night. I’m ready! Maybe I’ll stop itching while sleeping. I sure hope so! This is driving me crazy.
