This morning I’m sitting on the front porch instead of the back. Outta control. I don’t know why I don’t do this more. The sun rises on the front porch, everybody knows it.
Yesterday they cleared the bush off the vaacant lot next door. (Hope they aren’t planning on building) Now Daisy the dawg sees new things never seen before and she’s growling and wants to bark. Damaging the morning peace and serenity.
The early morning sound of West Bay in the Cayman Islands is, I think, unique to the world. Hundreds of roosters crowing, with like a 3D effect, They’re all different distances apart sounding. The sound of a rooster really travels well, accoustically speaking. And if you’re on the phone and a rooster crows, the person you can talk to will hear if perfectly.
Yesterday I stopped by the drug store, and saw this:
Howling Arctic breezes continue to blow across the Cayman Islands this morning as Florida issues frozen iguana shower warnings.
Had some wind damage when I got home from work yesterday. Out poinsetta ( a Christmas plant, which, as you know, only blooms in the harshest winter conditions) was blown over by the relentless frozen winds.
But I fixed it,
I’m pretty sure work’s gonna be cancelled today. Snow Day! Just waiting for the call.
Happy Monday! Hope you had a good weekend. I’m sitting here in the semi-light, trying to think of a post to post.
I had a good weekend, swapped the subburned outdoor electrical covers on the front and back porch. And the outlets. One had broken and three of the other four were damaged from age and use. Had a helluva time with one cover and one outlet. Everything is held in place by metal electrical boxes that were installed when they poured the concrete. One screwhole had rusted away completely. I ended up making a new hole in epoxy.
The I couldn’t get the GFI outlet to stay set. It was working, then it quit. The problem was in another outlet down the line. I was glad to finally get it working.
Speaking of elecrical, the re-drawn plans for the addition that were supposed to go in last Wednesday didn’t go in, and they’re supposed to go in today. Fingers crossed.
Went to the beach with the wife yesterday, it was cloudy mostly, but had a good snorkel.
And now it’s back to work on after what seems like a very short weekend.
Cold and windy this morning. I wore a hoodie on my morning dawg walk. Below is a selfie, camera sitting on the bumper of an abandoned car. Me and my two dogs, on the street, tryin’ to survive the depths of winter. Bundled up in a vain attempt to prevent the howling arctic wind from cutting to the bone and freezing to the core..
Brutal, I tell ya!
I didn’t run this morning, just a walk. I let the dogs lead. Usually I keep them “heeled” in rigid military fashon but it was too hard to get up this morning to engage is such foolishness. Plus, we were mainly trying to survive the cold. Below is proof, but I seriousy disagree with the “feels like” reading, you got a big wind chill factor goin’ on this morning.
Beofre this morning, if you’da asked me what the best Led Zeppelin song was, I’d have instamtly answered “Trampled Underfoot” from Physical Graffiti. It’s a not-as-well known song, but many have agreed it is an under-credited great song.
This morning I hit the bathroom radio power button and timed it perfectly for the beginning of Since I’ve Been Loving You, Led Zepp III. Man! it was good! I’ve heard it many, many many times, but it rang my bell good this morning.
I still have both albums, on Vinyl, in perfect shape, FYI, got ’em when I first discovered Led Zeppelin. I’ve always liked III better than Physical Graffiti on the whole as an album. Trampeled Underfoot has been my top choice as best Led Zep song ever. But this morning, Since I’ve Been Loving You sounded goooooood! I’ll be listening to it again very soon, very closely.
Today’s payday, I have some late (not past due) bills to pay and I need an oil change on the van. And I’ve got some problems with the outdoor electrical outlets on the porch. Rust inside the box inside the concrete.. And I gotta work.
