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!

Wednesday Words

Wednesday Words?? Crappy title.

Today I’m taking my mower to the lawnmower doctor.

I put it in the car last  night and poor poor Sheba thought we were going somewhere.

It seems a shame. I take the mower in the car, then I’m stuck with the car all day instead of the motorcycle. Being on the motorcycle was good yesterday!

Our tree is finally getting some orange in it. It needed that rain last week. Most of the similar trees in town have been  orange for a long time. Town gets more rain.

I don’t have anything to post about. Brain not working, I guess. I’m still on my first cup of coffee.

Take ‘Er Easy!

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! 

New Bananas Coming!

image

You can’t really see in the picture, but banana batch #2 is on it’s way! Hopefully some day we’ll produce bananas more or less constantly.
Also I planted 2 more paypaya trees, and I’m trying to sprout a plum tree. Ripe Cayman plums are gooooood!

This has been a nice fast week so far, and I hope it continues to move quickly!

Have a good day!

Flypaper: Great Movie!

image

image

Watched a great movie yesterday, Flypaper. Two sets of bad guys try to rob the same bank at the same time. This is a comedy that IMDB says is an “under the radar” good movie. This is definite watch-more-than-once really really good movie. I highly recommend watching it.

It was a good weekend. I planted two more papaya trees, I saw that we have some more bananas on the way!

Mostly stayed at home and hung out. We had some much needed rain as well.

Looking forward to making it through this first full week after vacation.

Have a good week!

Best Thing Since Sliced Bread

image

Years ago, I bought a pack of these because my dentist recommended it. They sat in the medicine cabinet, unused, till recently. A few months ago, I started using them. I was surprised, they are great! First few times I used them, grossly disgusting, I got what I call quite a bit of crud (not much) that brushing and flossing missed. And  a rotten smell from what I’m guessing was unchartered territory.

Now I’m hooked. I used all the first pack, and got two more, one for home and one for work.

The package comes with a plastic case, and about twice many brushes as will fit in the case. Not sure what that is all about. Also there’s different varieties, most have big old handles with 4 or 5 to  a pack and are expensive. Screw that, use these cheap ones and throw them away when done.

And that’s my Friday post. I was going to post about the Russian position on Ukraine, and how the media won’t give both sides of the story, but I’ll save that for another day.

Have a great weekend! I’m going to rent a jackhammer and dig some holes in our bedrock yard for some trees! We have an avocado and a triple breadfruit tree in  pots that are becoming too small.

New Street Sign and Weekend Report!

image

It was a really nice weekend. Saturday I ran errands while the Wife made cupcakes. I got the lawnmower fixed and mowed the yard. Sunday I made the above street sign out a piece of bamboo while the wife applied icing to afore mentioned cupcakes. Then we took afore mentioned, iced cupcakes to the beach for a friends birthday party.

I’m not too sure I’m completely happy with the house sign. My brush  was too big to  get down in the letters and I’m  not sure I like the colors. I’m not happy with the strength of the wire hanging mechanism, and it’s hanging crooked. Don’t get me wrong, I like it, but I may fiddle with it some more.
I was going to try a palm tree instead of the sun, but the sun was so much easier and matched the colors I had on hand. I’m pretty happy with the smiling sun.

That’s my Monday post, have a good week!

Purple Peppers

On our back porch, we have purple peppers growing. They are quite interesting to look at and I can’t wait to eat one.

They’re a little bigger than a golf ball now, and they should get as big as a red or green pepper from the grocery store.

Last night we went out to the monthly C.A.R.E. trivia night fundraiser. Man, I suck at trivia.

And tomorrow is FRIDAY!

Have a good day!

Long Weekend Report

Monday here we are.  Except that I have the day off today. It is the last day of my “vacation”. What a waste of vacation time. It’s like a weekend.

imageYesterday I put in a new sliding glass shower door on the bathtub. Today I may mow the yard if it doesn’t rain.

postercvWe saw the second Hunger Games movie this weekend. It was really really good. Now I’m reading the books again.

And that’s about it. I feel all sore today.  My back, neck and legs… mo matter.

Have a good week! !!
