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.

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.


Is It That Time Of The Year Again?

Well, what the Hell have I been up to? Replaced the handle on the tailgate. Cost $35 and a bit of time. WAY better than the $210 the Dealer wanted just for the part.

My Tailgate Taken Apart. Was An Easy Fix.

Moved the Manor Stone from around our two fruit trees, dug out the area, put in weed blocker stuff, stones back in place and filled with bark. Now I need to trim the weed blocker stuff and that’ll be done.

Mostly supervised the guy putting in the new front ramp. Did go get the 25 bags of concrete. Couple of young guys loaded them into the truck  but I unloaded them! John did pretty good on this and I wish I could have been more help.

Other than that: Not much. Daily routine stuff and trying to set up a print server that works for everyone and not just me. SWMBO hasn’t been able to connect and I haven’t been able to make her connect to the printer so I’m reinstalling the server. Turns out I don’t need a scanner server since this little scanner we have will scan to a thumb drive. Cool!

beginningWx really suxs now. Some rain. Mostly cloudy and dark. Hate this getting dark early crap! And it’s just going to get worse next week when daylight savings ends.

Anywho, just wanted to let y’all know I’m still alive and kicking. Getting weaker by the week, but hanging in there. Stress Test Nov 27th. Which will show them what I’ve been telling the Doc all along. I don’t run!


I Am So Boring!

Haven’t posted cause my life is boring as fuck. I spend my days hobbling around like an old guy with knee and foot pains (Hey!) and not a whole lot to do cause I’m “retired.”

Oh, I make my bank runs and things like that; but mostly I hang around the house “doing things.” Nothing that really matters; but something. Yes, I usually start my day by making the bed. At least I accomplish one thing every day.

Wx has been fairly nice though. Cooler (to cold) in the morning but really nice in the afternoon. Have got to lay out a couple of times. Except for the crap going on with me I’ve been really enjoying our morning walks.

Need some help finishing up the front “stoop” (steps, porch, whatever) so a friend came over to give me an estimate for him to finish it. I can live with what he came up with so he’ll be starting tomorrow. Cool! Now I gotta hope rent gets paid.

The New Doctor Who.


Made overdone peanut butter cookies form my Schweetie today. Also made Pot Roast with mushrooms as a one-pot meal. It was pretty good and the meat wasn’t too tough.

Can you tell I’m just rambling now? That happens when you just live an ordinary every-day life in the US.

I could fill pages about my Renter right now; but I really think I ought not to.


Physically I’m going to shit. Mentally I’m the same as I’ve always been: Fucked Up. Sixty-six and I’m still trying to work it out.
