My morning routine is pretty constant. Extremely constant. This morning, I’m mixing it up a bit. Instead of sitting on the back porch, I’m sitting on the front porch.
Every day is thunderstorms. Makes it hard for a scooter rider to get around. I’ve been driving the van. I think the AC is weak in the van. I turned it on the other day, and it didn’t seem too cold. I’m more of a windows open kinda guy. AC makes you weak, start using it, then you start needing it.
Here’s the sun, getting ready to pop out from behind a two-headed monster mushroom cloud.
In a second, it’s going to get really hot out here. I better head inside… To the AC….
This morning we had surprise thunder and rain and lightning and winds. A little mini hurricane. My weather report said no rain till Friday, so, change of transport plans.
Apparently, I’m crabby this morning. Took the dogs for their walk, and when we got back, the wife asked, “How was your run?” I snapped back “I haven’t run in probably more than a year, the dogs can’t run.”
Now I feel bad because I snapped at the wife before she even got out of bed. I apologized immediately, but deep down, I wonder if I’m an asshole, deep in my core, printed on my DNA.
July is almost gone, August is almost here. Years are flyin’ by faster and faster. When I turned 40, I figured my life was about half over. I tell ya, the second half is moving a lot quicker than the first half did..
It was a good weekend, we took the dogs to the beach, first time for Daisy, and Lenny swam very well, first time he didn’t act all afraid of the water.
Red sky AT night, sailors delight, red sky IN THE morning, sailor take warning.
What’s the difference between the words ‘morning’ and ‘night’? We say “at night”, but “in the morning”. It doesn’t seem prpoper to say “at morning”
And, what’s the difference between “school” and “hospital”? We say “at school”, and (Brits) say “at hospital” but to me it seems weird to say “at hospital”, for some reason, “at THE hospital” seems proper.
And “proper”. Why is there a “R” at the end? The correct pronounciation is “proppa”!
Happy Friday! Hope you have a sunny, warm, weekend!
I came here to post this morning, but so far, all I’ve done is watch yesterdays bowling robot video. I love it. I find it mesmerising
Slept good last night, except I woke up when the cat took a shortcut, running across me in the middle of the night. And there was lots of loud thunder.
Haven’t mentioned it yet, but I’m thinking about it a lot, 50 years ago Apollo 11 was on it’s way to the moon. I remember watching it on TV. I was 9. I remember being in my classroom (3rd grade) when Apollo 1 caught fire, killing the crew. I think I was watching TV and heard Apollo 13 say “Houston, we’ve had a problem” live.
Part of me wonders, “How could I have not known then, that I’d be writing this now?” Seems crazy, but it seems like back then I had very little to no concept of the future.
Cloudy today. But it should be a nice weekend. I think I might be getting a cold though, sore throat yesterday, stuffy nose today. Hope I don’t get sick.
