I spent most of Saturday and some of Sunday trimming trees in the backyard. See pic above. I wish I had taken a before shor, you could touch the tree branches from the porch. Ran into chainsaw trouble Sunday, I’m still not done. I rekkon I’m done enough.
I missed a big street parade Carnival Saturday too. I really wanted to go, but, you know, chainsawing.
Weather coming, looks like. We need some rain.
Today, both dogs are going to the vet to get shots and checkups.
Last week, I think it was Wednesday, someone creased my car in the parking lot of the grocery store. I think I noticed it immediately after it happened. It is upsetting, to say the least. I’m not going to do anything about it though. My first damage to my new baby van.
I found this yesterday. Thee Ford Nucleon, nuclear powered car. Think of all the shielding needed in the back, protecting us from the reactor, the incredible weight allows the long overhanging front end. Google it. Read about it. It’s really neato mosquito cool and fun.
I was super sick yesterday. I guess I had a 24 hour cold. I went diving sunday, After that I sneezed, Then my head clogged solid and I had a cold. Then last night it just cleared up. I’m almost fully back to normal now.(Cold wise only, still normal crazy!)
Last night the Wife and I watched the movie “The Lincoln Lawyer”, it was quite good. Highly recommended to see in the theater or on TV.
Lawyer’s defending a client for assault and finds out he’s guilty. Also, his client framed someone for the assault. AND he enjoys seeing innocent people go to jail for his crimes. AND he’s done it before. Super good. Much better than expected.
Thursday. Nice day. I feel like taking the car instead of motorcycle though. don’t really know why. Traffic. Parking. Everything’s a hassle with a car. Motorcycle’s the way to go.
Have a good day! Watch that movie! You won’t regret it!
I’ve been thinking quite some time about what to post and I am drawing a blank.
Last night the wife and I watched the movie Back To The Future II. It’s stupid, but I feel a little bit sad that date in the movie has passed. It was a good movie the first time I saw it and it is still good now. Now that the date has passed, it feels like the movie is really over after all these years, and won’t be as good as it once was. Of course, there is no reason for that to be so.
Glad it’s Thursday and look forward to the weekend. It is still quite rainy, but there is more and more Sun. Been driving the car for 2 weeks now, ready to get back on the motorcycle .
I take melatonin every night at home. I didn’t bring any with me this trip. I haven’t been sleeping well, and o haven’t been tired at bedtime. Yesterday I got some. I slept good last night. Note to self: always take melatonin with you when traveling.
Here’s a super cool satellite dish. It can lock on to more than one satellite at a time.
It was hard to wake up this morning. I’m still dragging. Bring me the weekend
This morning whilst feeding the cats, I saw two new cats in the yard. A grey and a yellow. They didn’t try to get food from our cats, but they did almost start a fight with each other. I threw a rock at them and missed (I couldn’t hit a fat woman in the ass with a paddle) but they ran away.
I should get a price quote for the car repair today. Wish me luck.
I discovered a movie called “Zombies VS Strippers”. Sounds like a wonderful movie. The Wife doesn’t seem too interested in watching it. Hmm. Wonder why. IMDB gave it two stars.
The first car I ever drove was a 1973 AMC Gremlin. It was a snowy Missouri day and my friend Doug and I were out cruising around. We were way back on a dirt road, snowy and icy when he decided to let me drive.
He said, “don’t use the brakes, you’ll skid if you use the brakes”.
So. I started driving, got going to a pretty good speed, then took my foot off the gas to slow down for a curve. Since it was a dirt road, the turn was really banked. As per instruction, I didn’t use the brakes
Well, I hit that curve pretty fast, and didn’t make the turn. I ended up airborne and landed in this snow filled cornfield. You could see where all four tires left the ground in the snow.
It didn’t hurt the car, because aeronautical race car driving is in my genes. We reversed out and headed on our way. Doug driving.
And that was the first time I ever drove a car. Another thing I remember, worth mentioning, is the first time I drove solo, after I got my license. But that was uneventful.
It was a very nice weekend. And it seemed pretty long too. Friday we went to the Island Air party.There were private jets you could go aboard. This one only costs 12 million!
I got a close up view of the helicopter that’s always hovering over our house.
There were boats and cars too, I posted the above picture on Instagram and Facebook, and got several comments that I should buy my wife that car, but we can’t even afford socks that match, so I guess we’ll have to wait.Saturday we went to the “soft opening” of the George Town Yacht Club. Really nice.
And SUnday, we relaxed and went to a Super Bowl Party in the evening. Baltimore Ravens won and it was a good game. It was outside though, and now I think I’m getting a cold. NO!
That’s all for NFL Football this year, and that’s all for my post today! Have a good week!
