A Week Ago

It was my first day back at work after vacation. Seems like a lot longer than that.

Tomorrow is a big exercise at work. I’ve been getting our department ready. I have a lot to do today as well.

Tomorrow, my friends from the USA leave. Wish I was spending more time with them.

Ba humbug, that’s how I feel this morning.

Bittersweet Friday

This morning the wife left for Florida for the weekend. I’m home alone already and it’s weird because I normally get dressed in the dark and walk around the house with my little flashlight and keep quiet with my wife sleeping. And now all the lights are on my wife’s gone I’m walking around openly and it’s just weird.

Gonna be a long weekend, I’m working a Caytronics sound job. Loaded up the car last night, set up straight after work.

Quite windy and chilly this morning. Funny sinc I was just talking about winter being over.

Well, that’ll do for this morning. Have a great wekend!


My wife got me a Fitbit Charge, she’s had one a while and likes it. I expressed an interest and she surprised me!


It seems pretty cool. It’s fun entering all the info from the food you eat, keeping track of everything. I especially like the  bar code scanner.

It measures your activity during the day, and how you sleep at night.

I wear it in the shower, but not in the sea, not sure how waterproof it is.. I’ll find out, but I’m pretty sure you can’t take it diving.

Superbowl was yesterday. Both teams sucked. Denver had no third down conversions but won it. Carolina didn’t play well at all either.

It’s Monday, I’m tired and crabby. It’s cold and wwindy outside…Good day for working, if there ever was


Have a wonderful week!



The wife has been gone almost 24 hours, I couldn’ get to sleep last night and I woke up early this morning.
Sheba’s depressed, I’m depressed, and the cat, well, she seems OK.

Over the hump this week, almost. Work has been OK lately, as far as work goes. (hope I didn’t jinx it). The weather has been good, all is well.

I can’t tell the days are getting longer yet, by the time it gets light enough for me to post my post, it’s time for me to go to work, so…


First Post Of 2016!!!

Focus on the good, not the bad! (my original title was “First Workday of 2016”.)
Today’s going to be a hot, sunny day and I’m going to the beach at lunchtime! It’s early morning and Crux is high in the sky.
Here’s some pics from the long weekend:


My visiting Navy friend Jeff at East End.


My brother in law’s sidewalk marker for diving each and every East End dive site. This is MUCH more prestigious than an actor  having a star on the sidewalk in Hollywood.


The first sunset of 2015, there was also a green flash.


And a new, experimental collage, made using my phone! ☎

Have a good day, a good week, and a good year!

Weather Irregular

I took the car yesterday, and then it got sunny and stayed sunny all day. Last night was clear and we looked for shooting stars. We got this meteor shower going on ya know.
This morning, got up at 5, looked outside, crystal clear. I figured I’d have a shower, some coffee, post my post and look for meteors some more while it got light.
Whilst I was in the shower, it started to rain. Pour. It was cloudless a minute ago. Whottheeheck.
How an I supposed to determine the most appropriate mode under these conditions?
The crap I gotta put up with, I tell ya.

You know what else bugs me? What is it? IT rained, IT got light. This irks me every time I hear it. Another thing that bothers me is the nameless “they” that so many people refer to. “Surely they’ll evacuate us, they won’t let us stay here!”

I’m off on a rant. Cabin fever from a little rain! Surely IT will stop! THEY won’t let me go crazy!


One Day & A Wakeup! Plus A Long Ramble

Tomorrow we go to Mexico! I don’t even know why I’m even bothering going to work today!

It was  a 50/50 weekend.

We didn’t go to a wedding on Saturday, we’re going to a wedding in Mexico.

The wife worked Sunday, she came home with sandwiches, she accidently gave me the wrong sandwich, I ate it. She got super super mad at me for not noticing. I was watching American football, not paying attention along those lines, her sandwich was completely different than mine. I should have noticed. One time at Subway, I ordered a chicken sandwich. I ate it and it was excellent. After that, the worker came up and asked me if my sandwich had chicken on it. I said I don’t know, but it was excellent. They found a piece of chicken in the  microwave and figured it was supposed to go in my sandwich. I thought and thought, but couldn’t remember if there was chicken in my sandwich or not. But I remember it was good. the other day we went to a restaurant, I ordered a beef sandwich. I was terrible. Tasted like charcoal, literally. The manager came over when I was almost done, and asked how everything was, I said terrible, tastes like charcoal. She gave me a weird look, ’cause I was woofin’ it down. I said “Hey, you asked”. I have these two teeth that gets food stuck between them. When I got home and jammed a toohpick between those teeth and got out the hunk of meat from that sandwich I could taste it again. It was terrible tasting.  Charcoal. I don’t care about food. Eating and sleeping are wastes of time, and if I didn’t have to do them, I wouldn’t.

Football-wise his weekend was opposite of last weekend. Almost all my teams lost. And the Redskins got hammered like they hammered last week.

Did you ever see the movie “The Matrix”? Where the cat walks by twice and Neo says “Whoa, deja vu”? It’s hapening to me, our cat, Ashy, keeps walking by. She’s doing laps, in the laundry door, through the kitchen, out the dining room door to the back porch and under my table. Again and again, like the Matrix movie.

Let me out of here, I gotta go to work.

Have a good week, I might not post tomorrow, I’ll be going to the airport.

Good Weekend For American Football!

It was a great weekend for American Football! Every team in my division lost, except my Washington Redskins! Plus all my other teams won too! Except Seattle. Great football!

The weekend was cloudy, and a lot of rain. Still raining now. The Wife cleaned the back porch, there was black mold growing on the concrete and she scrubbed it with a brush. I helped by moving stuff and I scrubbed a litle, but she did all the work.

This is my last full week of work before Mexico! I am ready to GO! As soon as we get back, the in-laws come for a visit, then an old Navy friend who I haven’t seen in 30 years.

Just get me through this week at work.

Have a good one!
