Two Anchored Ships



Took these two pictures of two anchored ships while having a coffee with the wife yesterday afternoon. I like the top one better, she likes the bottom.

The wife went to Miami for work, two days. She’ll be back in 31 hours.

It is quite cool this morning, cloudy and will probably rain.

Have a good day!

Poor Lil Blog

I was just looking at WordPress’s “Freshly Pressed”. There are some amazing posts. It makes me wish my blog was better. I don’t have topics. Maybe I shouldn’t post first thing in the morning. It’s been part of my morning routine for years, coffee and post. But my brain isn’t up to speed in the morning, I don’t think, (how would I know?)

I love my camera, and I carry it around everywhere but seldom use it. Blog posts need photos, I think. I wish I had a job that required me to take pictures. Maybe. I never really had that thought before till now, when I just typed it. I’m 55 and still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.

I was sleeping very deeply when  the alarm went off this morning. I feel very dazed. Just started cuppa coffee #2. Maybe I will try some afternoon postings for a while. Maybe I won’t. I don’t like to be indoors when it’s daytime. I can’t see my internet device in the sun. Maybe I need to make some changes. My life is routine, routine, routine. I think I like routine, maybe I don’t.

I don’t know, I’m rambling.

Have a good day. Leave a comment.

Bizarre Dream

Last night I dreamed that I was at somebodies house with Ditto and  Sheba. There were several people there, half men, half women, and it was a two bedroom house. I didn”t know any of them. One guy was doing bong hits out of a bong that looked like the Star Trek USS Enterprise. I did a bong hit. (glad it was just a dream! I don’t do that anymore)
Then I went in the girls bedroom to use the bathroom and then I woke up on the bed and everyone in the house was gone. I don’t know how, but I found everyone at this bar. Then everyone was leaving, so I went outside too. The police were there, and  one of the guys from the house.  Apparently they found something in his car. The cop walked  out to the road and yelled at this station wagon, and it stopped. It was another cop. They went to the house dudes car, and pulled this huge thing out of the back. It looked like the dashboard, but it wasn’t. They put it in the station wagon.
I was standing across the street, watching. I turned away for something interesting (I’m forgetting part of the dream here), and when I turned back around, everyone was gone.
I realized I had no way to find anyone from the house, no way to find the house, and that my two dogs were in the house. Then there was a  pretty lengthy thought process about if anyone had ever lost their dogs before, who would take care of them, and ways to find where they  were…


This morning it was raining when I got up. Still pretty cloudy with a good chance of rain. Car day. I need to take the car anyway, as I need to buy a new ladder.

I applied for a job as a Audio Visual technician at the Ritz yesterday. I almost got up and walked out when I found the  pay was $7 an hour.  No one can live on that. Plus gratuities, but no one can tell you how much that’s going to be. I almost walked out but I maintained politeness.

I didn’t exercise this morning because of the rain, and  I almost forgot to make coffee. Coffee is going down good this morning! I gotta go get more!

Have a good day!

Good Monday Mornin’ to All A Yall

I  feel like I’m going to fall asleep. I am exhausatificated. I woke up at 3:30 and couldn’t fall back asleep…. until about 4:30.


On the bright side, this is my last work week till vacation! Going to Canmore, Canada to see the brother in law and sister in law. I don’t think I’ve ever been that far north in my life.

It was an OK weekend, threatening to rain, but not much actually falling. Lots of cleaning going on. We have friends flying in to take care of the dawgs.

This is a ramblin’ Monday post, I don’t have anything substantial to say, and I’m going to bid you adieu.

Have a good day and a better week!

More Coffee Screwups


This morning I made coffee and got in the shower. The toasty aroma greeted me warmly when I came out of the bathroom. I went to get a cup.

CURSES BATMAN! No coffee pot under the strainer basket. Coffee had overflowed and was all over the counter.
i had to go get my bath towel to clean it  up.

In my own defense, our coffee maker is very complicated. You have to be a mechanical engineer to disassemble/assemble it to put the filter in. Then program it for how many cups, and how strong, if you’re using the built-in bean grinder. Then enter launch codes, authorization codes, retina scan, fingerprint scan and you’re ready.

It’s very complicated for someone who wakes up as brain-dead as me.

Hopefully I got it now, and I’m done screwing up.

Oh, and I’m glad it’s FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tonight I’m going to see Mad Max in 3D while the Wife goes to a jazz thingy at some restaurant with a bunch of friends. I abhor jazz. It sounds random to me.

HAVE A GOOD WEEKEND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Coffee Disaster

This morning coffee went all over the countertop. I’m late from cleaning it up. (and sleeping an extra half hour)

Last night I had a dream a volcano went off. I was with a bunch of people and I looked up the mountain and saw black smoke coming out of the ground in two places. I yelled “LOOK!” and everybody looked and it blew up. We started running and rocks and dirt was landing all around us. 
And I dreamed I was sorting coins in alphabetical order.

Have a good day

Finally Friday

I’m glad it’s Friday.
Monday I start a school for work. I’ll be in Miami all next week.
Hurricane season hasn’t even started and there’s a storm out there. Tropical Storm Ana.


Yesterday it was nice and sunny. Today should be the same. I’m riding the scooter to work for the first time in over a week.

I ordered an espresso tool from eBay. It is like one my Mother-In-Law has.  I love it. I am excited.


It has a scooper on one end and a tamper on the other. Greatest thing since sliced bread!

Have a FANTASTIC weekend!

Friday Is Coming!

It’s Thursday, but that means that it’s Friday on the other side of the international date line! And Friday is speeding aroundthe globe, headed our way!

It’s supposed to rain this weekend, and while I’m normally not a rain fan, we really need it. Yesterday the weather was showing some major rain between Miami and Havana. Now it’s not looking like so much rain will be coming  :-(


I got a new backpack, very similar to my old backpack and I’m happy with it.

And now it’s time for me to make lunch, and get ready  to head off to work. And  get cuppa coffee #2!

Enjoy your day!

The First Post Entitled “Friday”

I almost typed “Friday” for the title, There’s probably several that have already been given the same name.

But it is Friday! Hooo-Ray!

Today I have to take part 2 of the real estate test. I do not have high confidence on passing. I found the section on contracts most confusing and contradictory at times.

Tomorrow is mini golf with friends followed by food and American football. Hopefully that’ll be it for weekend plans. I just want to veg out.

Here’s a tip. Get some of the cheap hot chocolate mix that comes in the pouches. Make it using coffee instead of hot water. Super good!


Have a good weekend!
