No News Is Good News

It was a great weekend! Friday I stayed home while the Wife went out to Oktoberfest. Not my cuppa tea)

Saturday I went to the beach, wife had to work (only for two hours). The beach is full of seaweed, and I had the whole 7 Mile Beach to myself! Didn’t see another soul. The sea’s been pretty  rough, with the wind coming opposite the normal direction. Good sand n sun tho, it was great!

Sunday, we took Sheba to the beach at Barkers, not much seaweed there, came back, gave Sheba a bath. Then I trimmed the tree in the back yard. It had branches hanging down almost to the ground. After that we went to a friends house and hung out by the pool.

And I watched Football, Redskins won,  Dallas lost.

It was a good weekend.

Super weird dreams last night though. I had a brain twister about the anomalies of the number 96. And a different dream that someone was building real structures of optical illusions. There was a corner of a building, a house really, that was up on a pole. It had a still-alive woman from olden days, still young and not affected by time. And more illusions. Too weird to retain in the brain. Waker-uppers. I got up and laid on the back porch for a pretty long time, since
sleeping wasn’t comfortable. 

But it was a good weekend! I feel pretty good this morning, despite lack of sleep. We’ll see now the day goes.

Have a good week!

Weekly Weekend Report

It was an  all right weekend.
Friday, quiet evening at home. Saturday, The Wife had a Girls brunch, I went to the beach. In the evening we went to some friends house and hung out. Sunday,  mowed the front yard only. And didn’t do much else. It was a high cloud day yesterday, plenty of heat, but not much sun, for a while, then there were intermittent high clouds and low clouds all day. It’s that time of year, rain almost every day, hurricanes and storms lined up in the Atlantic.

I need to start taking more pictures. I don’t take them so I don’t have them to post.

Now it’s back to work, the past two weeks have been fast and I hope this week is too.

And that’s about all for my weekly weekend report!

Have a great week!

Mexico Hit With Seaweed


from the BBC

I’ve been watching this for the past couple of weeks on the Akumal beach webcam, there’s a link in the menu bar above. Usually it’s one or two guys out in the morning with rakes and a wheelbarrow, but nowadays it’s a dozen guys and big truck after big truck backing onto the beach hauling it away. There’s still more floating at sea.

Check out the webcam, it’s not too bad today, I think the news was over before it made the news. Monday there was seaweed all the way to the tree closest to the water, and piled high!

Yesterday I ran out of gas on my scooter. I forgot. A couple days ago, I remember looking at a quarter tank, thinking “I’ll need gas tomorrow”.Then yesterday the engine started cutting out and the fuel gauge was on “E” the engine died at the light right next to the Rubis gas station. It took $6.25 to fill! That’s a lot for my scooter, usually $5 is max.

HUMPDAY! Have a goodun!

Monday Morning Blues After A Fantastic Weekend

Here we are, Monday morning. Again. I got the Monday Morning Blues.

Friday we went to Royal Palms beach bar. The wife wanted to dance. There’s a link to Royal Palms in my menu bar

Saturday we went shopping and got new suitcases for our Canada trip in less than three weeks. Then we had lunch at a place called Icoa. I had a Maine Lobster sandwich that was very good, and the staff was super nice. Then we went to a pool party and had a beef curry dinner at a friends house.

Sunday I mowed the yard, and my lawnmower ran good for a while, then quit. I just had it fixed. I was able to get it running by putting some duct tape on the throttle. It’s going back to the shop today. After I mowed the yard, I took sun on the  porch while the Wife went on a catamaran cruise. She didn’t get home till late and was mad because the staff made the people leave their shoes on the dock, and when they got back, one of her flip flops was missing.

This morning I was doing my exercises and we had a sudden, heavy downpour. I got soaked getting the stuff inside and closing the doors and windows. Now I’m drinking coffee and getting ready to go back to work.

All I gotta focus on is making it to the beach for lunch.

Have a good week!

38 Years

Today a high school friend is coming to visit on a cruise ship.
Haven’t seen him since 1977. That’s 38 years! I have the day off and am taking them to Cemetery Beach.

That’s the plan, pictures to follow!

Thursday Thinkin’

It’s Thursday, Tomorrow is Friday. This week has been both slow and fast.

I don’t have anything to post today (seems like I never do anymore)

Went to bed at 9  last night, slept good. No dreams no nothing.  Alarm went off and I set the timer and slept another 30 minutes.  Now I’m running late this morning, but I’m not too worried about it.

Although the Operations Training this week is very interesting, and in some ways better than regular work, I do miss the beach lunch hours. Next week will be back to normal.

Have a great day!
