Sudden Stop

All week, It seemed like the week is going fast. Until today, all of a sudden, it seemes like it’s dragging. It feels like Friday, and it is painful to constantly remind myself that it’s Thursday. It’s also American Thanksgiving. Regular work day in Cayman. Supposed to rain today too. After work, I’m going to move more stuff from the unpainted side of the back porch to the painted side. It should be quick work to finish the back porch after that. Yesterday, I made a heavy duty trolley plant stand for this lemon tree in a giant pot on the back porch.

I made the green thing under the pot yesterday. And now it’s about time for me to head out to work. Happy American Thanksgiving! (I’m really thankful for a lot of stuff, it just isn’t reflected in todays post.)

Hot, Oh So HOT

Yesterday, after work, I finished up the edges of the back porch paint job, It was hot. I was kneeling beside the wall on the back porch where the floor meets the wall. The house was blocking any breeze and the afternoon sun was full strength. sweat was drip-drip-dripping. I got the job done though, all I have to do now is move all the stuff from the unpainted side to the painted side and paint. The painting that’s left (on the back porch) will be easy, stand-up painting with a roller on a broomstick.

Then I’ll start on the driveway, then the roof, then the rest of the house.

After I got done painting yesterday, I took a cold shower, then I mowed the yard. I planned on doing just the front, but I ended up doing the whole thing. Glad I got that done! The I took anoher shower, and made hamburgers on the grill.

Now, it’s off to work on a Wednesday.

Have a great day!

Junk Shop

I feel like I’m sitting in a junk shop, I had to climb over things and move things to get my chair,

All our stuff is moved to one side of the porch because I’ve been paintng the other side.

I feel pretty good today, running this morning, I developed a sore spot on the top of my foot, which I first noticed a couple days ago, gonna have to band-aid it.

Supposed to get some more rain today, but it’s nice now. I’m vannin’ it! (That means take the van instead of the scooter).

Here’s one more pic, before I go. Have a great day!

The porch from the roof.

Busy weekend

I painted the front porch, and half the back porch.I still have to do the trim on the back porch. Still to go: Driveway, roof and entire house.

I needed to mow the yard too, but I blew it off. In hindsight, I shoulda.

Now it’s back to work.

SEND ANYWHERE: Another App Bites the Dust

I had this fantastic app on my phone and tablet, Send Anywhere

It was simple, pick the files you wanted to send, the app generates a 6 digit code. Enter the code in the receiving device, and Viola! Your files are there, fast and easy.

Well, they updated it and it quit working, in a nutshell. Yesterday I wanted to send a 100K pic from my phone to my tablet for my post. It was sooo slow. in a half hour, I had to leave for work, it was 53%, then I left the wifi zone and got an error message. What a complete waste of time!

And that’s why there was no post from me.

I looked for other apps but found none I liked. Most require you to scan a code, my tablet lives in a case, and the rear camera is covered, so all those apps are out. Back to USB stick transfers for me.

Have a great day!

Presha Washa

Finally a Friday. Yesterday seemed like Friday, real bad.

I bought a new pressure washer yesterday. A Craftsman. I need to seal the front porch, back porch, driveway and roof. Plus I need to pressure wash the house itself.

Craftsman is a brand that once was good, but soon will go down the toilet. Their tools are getting worse, harder to find. I went in a Sears last time I was in the USA and it was like a junk shop. The tool section was like a clearance sale, a couple of bins with the tools piled in.

I used to work at Sears, before I joined the Navy, I have a spot in my heart for Sears.

IT’S FRIDAY! And a long weekend, Monday is a holiday.

My Wife went to Fort Lauderdale yesterday, coming back Monday. Hopefully, it will be a nice weekend for me to do some house work. Not housework, house work.

Have a good weekend!

Rainyweek

I was looking forward to running today. But before I even ot outside, I could hear the rain, beating against the house.

My Wife is headed to Fort Lauderdale today, to visit some Costa Rican friends who used to live here. She’ll be back Monday.

Monday is our first holiday since about July. Long weekend coming up!

I really wanted to run this morning, I wanted to do two miles intsead of my normal one.

Have a good day!

Bluetooth Earpieces

I love my bluetooth earpiece, they look nerdy, hanging fom your ear, but I cannot stand losing a hand while I hold the phone up to my ear.

I lost mine last week, I laid down on a dock, and it fell from my ear, right between the crack in the boards, and into the water. Quite funny, really.

I made exactly one phone call before I went out and bought another, but it does not have the features of my old one.

My old one, all the audio on my phone came over the earpiece, music, I could hear the videos, WhatsApp calls everything. My new one, only the actual phone call comes over the earpiece. I used to love listening to music during meetings at work or sittting at my desk. Plus,it was only in one ear, so I could still hear what was going on around me.

I need to go get a better one, more like my old one. My old one was a Plantronics, my new one is a Samsung.

My new one, Samsung Basic.

My old one, but it was white.

I gotta get on it today, I really don’t like my new one.

That’s my post for today.

Do you have one? What kind? Do you like it?

Have a great day!

Scattered Rain? Very Scattered!

Yesterday was supposed to be clear, according to the weatherman. It was clear in the morning, when I rode my scooter to work. By lunchtime, it was clear to the north, but at the southern beach I go to for my lunch hour, I could tell it was raining. I waitied and waited for it to clear up, bu it didn’t. By the time I went home, it was pouring at work, and I woe my rainsuit home, but didn’t get rained on.

This morning, before my run, I went outside to get the cat bowls, came in and filled them up to take back outside, and it was pouring. Now, a half hour later, There”s not a cloud in the sky. Like I hallucinated the whole thing.

It won’t be a scooter day today, that’s fer sure.

Wife says there’s six cruise ships in today, first time in a long time. I need to run into town today..
