Monday, Week 2

Today starts week 2 of training. It’s about SMS, Safety Management Systems.

It was a good weekend, for me. Unfortunately The Wife had to work all weekend, There’s a conference here by one of the manufacturers. Saturday I stayed home, Sunday I was a model for fishing clothes. Then I went to a going away pool party for some friends.

And that’s it.

Tuesday/Monday Mower Post

It feels like Monday.
Yesterday, I started mowing the yard, then the lawnmower broke down. I spent a couple hours trying to fix it, but it wouldn’t start. There was a guy mowing next to next door. I asked him to finish up for me and he did. He wanted $25 and I gave him  $30. Yard mowed. Mission accomplished. Now I have to get the lawnmower fixed. I think something’s broke inside the engine. It was making a weird clanging sound before it died. The red rubber thing you use to prime the engine before starting is ripped. The idle is too low. I’m taking it to a lawnmower repair place, today I’ll stop by and see if I can drop it off tomorrow. To me, it’s still a new mower… less than two years old I think.
The weather is better, today I’m taking the scooter, first time in about three weeks! Yeay! In the car, I am a mere mortal like everyone else. On the scooter, I am immune to traffic! Plus the scooter is better parking for my beach  lunch!

Have a good day! 

Happy Happy Joy Joy! Monday!

It’s MONDAY! HUUU-RAY!

Still mostly cloudy with scattered showers, but it’s supposed to start breaking up Tuesday, That’s tomorrow.

Yesterday the Wife had a flat tire in the car park. i got my tire plug kit and scuba tank and fixed ‘er  up. When I let the dogs out this morning it was still holding air. That’s good. Also, I had this wart on my middle finger of my right hand, somehow patching that tire I ripped that sucker clean out! It bled a lot but I’m glad to be rid of it. I usually rip it out myself every other year or so.

Friday we went to a make-yer-own-pizza party. That’s a real good idea for a party. Everyone was flinging dough up in the air and all around like Professional Italian Chefs. And then we made our own mini pizzas!

Also I got somebody interested (maybe) in my first and only house for sale.

So far this week so good! Havva goodun!

Humility

I was picking my shirt this morning, I almost picked the red one, but changed my mind and am wearing the blue one. The thought occurred to me that get angry more often when I wear a red shirt. I don’t know if it’s true or not, I just had the thought.

My attitude is in the gutter this morning. I just want to go to work and not be seen or noticed.

In Miami

I’m in Miami, headed to school in about an hour.

Flying yesterday, there was a yellow haze almost the whole way. It didn’t look like Earth. Earth, The Yellow Planet.

And the top picture was my view until I got sprinkled by the sprinkler system.

An Alternate Path?

It was a really good weekend. We had a friend of a friend visit, I went diving. And we went to the weigh-in of a fishing contest. While at the marina where the weigh-in was, I saw the sailboat above. The wife and I talked to the owners for about a half hour. Man O man, when I run into cool people like them, I feel like I could have taken an alternate path in this existence and been happy too. While I love  my life here, I sure would love to be on a sailboat, sailing around the world. They had great stories to tell in just the short time we talked. Hightailing it out of Colombia, after running into problems with the government, then hitting rough seas and considering turning back. Through the Panama Canal. We didn’t even scratch the surface, hearing the stories.

I could live that life.

Now it’s back to work, beach lunch and maybe a barbecue tonight.

Life is good, it’s too short, but life is good!

Have a good week!

Goodweekend

It’s Monday after a good weekend.
I went to the beach and laid on my sundeck. The only productive thing I did all weekend was plant some bougainvilleas. Thank you spell checker.
Work should be busy this week. I’m going to try to not get emotionally involved.
That’s it! Have a good week.
