Farmers Market, Worth a Checkout

I’ve been meaning to attend this for quite some time, maybe today is the day. There’s a different farmers market near where I work everyday, but it’s only full and busy on weekends. This once a week might be really good.

Got a letter yesterday from the power company, they want to put a-pole in next to an existing pole in my yard. The new pole ewill have 2 anchors in my yard. I guess it’s gonna be no big deal but I’m meeting the person from the power company this afternoon. I just hope they don’t recommend offense. They insure me they won’t.

I have a quarantiner moving into the apartment this morning, It’s only 5 days now people come on down! I have somebody else interested in renting it as soon as they move out on a month by month, basically looking for somewhere to stay while they find somewhere to stay. Then I’m expecting visitors in October!

For some reason I’m running quite late today, My exercise took longer than normal I think. And the dogs and I had the maximum length morning walk.

The weather app calls for thunderstorms today but right now it is perfectly clear. Scooter or motorcycle? The great daily dilemma.

Have a good day!

Dayjumble

I noticed that my posts are usually a day off. My Monday post is usually about the weekend, My Friday post is almost always about Thursday, Most of the posts (that rhymes) are about yesterday. I guess that’s the way it’s gotta be, unless I started posting in the evenings.

Below are four pictures from my scuba dive yesterday. Some of these are among my favorites that I’ve ever taken.

It was a good weekend, Friday night dinner club, Saturday mangrove festival in town…

Also Saturday was family fun day from work at the beach. It was fun with a lot of people and a lot of food and I want a $25 gasoline voucher playing bingo.

Sunday I went diving and to the beach ⛱. And had my regular beach pizza 🍕.

I didn’t do any of my chores. I didn’t paint, I didn’t clean, I didn’t mow, I didn’t trim the branches on the trees. And right now I don’t care.!

And now it’s Monday and I have a dental appointment today. Oh boy!

Have a great week!

Free French Fries

Went to movie night with the wife last night. It was good. I’ve been maybe 10 times, Every time I order food I request the salad instead of French fries. Only once have I got the salad as requested. When the waiter brings it I say “I’m sorry, but I ordered salad, not fries,” and he checks his notes, finds I did indeed request salad instead of fries, apologizes, brings me a salad and I have free French fries. If I posted this on Trip Advisor, they would fix it immediately and you would never get free fries again, so don’t tell anybody. So if you want free French fries go to the Westin movie night and ask for the salad with your Burger. You might get free fries you might not.

Last night the movie was Dirty Dancing. I had seen it before. It was a really good crowd who was “Interacting” with the movie. ” Nobody puts Baby in the corner” And it was windy on the beach and the wind blew the inflatable movie screen over twice. The crowd cheered and went wild. It was a fun night.

Today is Friday and yesterday was payday.. I have to pay bills.

Tomorrow is works Family Fun Day at the beach. Normally I wouldn’t go but now it’s like “hell yeah!” People and food!

Have a great weekend!

The Crab With Eggs

The other day I saw this crab climbing the wall. I went to take a picture and then noticed the eggs underneath. I wonder what she’s going to do with those eggs, and if I’m going to have a trillion baby crabs around here in a little while. She was gone that afternoon when I got home from work, without a trace.

Tonight is movie night at the Weston. I have a date with the wife. I am picking her up at her apartment.

It’s almost Friday!

The Two Percent Ripoff

I have a piggy bank, that for years, I throw nothing but quarters in. if I recall, last time it was full, it had about $60 in it.

My bank is Butterfield, the worst bank in the world. I mentioned that I would be bringing in a bunch of quarters. The teller informed me that Butterfield now charged a 2% fee for counting coins. After I said I’d bring them in counted, I was told that even then, they have to re-count them, and charge 2%.

Sooooo, I dumped the piggy bank, and every day I take a pocketful of quarters to spend. Then, everywhere I go, I apologize profusely while I count out quarters and tell the story of how crappy Butterfield Bank is.

I know, I know, I should leave. While other banks are a little better, they’re almost as bad. And it just hasn’t been worth it. All the banks are in cahoots.

Maybe crime DOES pay… Have a great day! (That rhymes)

Thundery Lightingey

out my north window just now

Woke up before the alarm ⏰ this morning because of thunder and lighting. (I really would like to not wake up exhausted sometime). I did my exercise under a clear, starry sky with storms to the south. When I finished my workout, the first raindrop fell.

I used a little red umbrella when I walked the dogs. Umbrellas are fun!

Have a great day!

Dart Family Park

12 second video

It was another good weekend. Saturday I met some friends at an often driven passed but seldom stopped at park. Pictures and video above.

Also I was productive replacing my thermostat in the house and an automatic ground fault indicator for the back porch outlets. For some reason, this one fails about once a year.

Also I went out for my birthday lunch Sunday with the wife. It was good to see her.

And, yesterday was my grandfathers birthday, born July 18th, 1895. Happy birthday Granpa!

And now for another Monday. Have a great week!

Random Fridayness

Two Spotted Eagle Rays inside the house

Itsa FRIDAY! It rained last night and it’s lighting-ey this morning.

Above in the picture are two spotted eagle rays. I had one, and had the other and decided to take a picture of them both.

Last night I considered going to Movie Night, but went outside and it was raining. Later, I checcked the Westin webcam and movie night looked like I was missing a good one. But a few minutes after I took this screenshot, I looked again and there were water droplets all over the camera. So it did rain at movie night after the below picture was taken. I don’t even know what the movie was anyway. Someone else told me that Tom Felton, the actor who played Draco Malfoy was there.

And it’s Friday, The only thing planned for the weekend are more house repairs (electrical) and lunch with the wife.

Have a good weathered weekend!

A “Read Again”

I finished the book Great Circle and I want to immediately start reading it again. All the pieces came together in the end. Other reviews said they thought the beginning was confusing like I did, but I attributed it to me not paying attention or missing the point. Or lack of intelligence.

I’ve started re-reading “Choke” which feels like a toy compared to Great Circle. I thought I already posted about “Choke” but I can’t find it. Oh well, another day.

My cold seems gone. I’m back to work, feels like Monday. I’m in for a real treat when I realize that tomorrow is Friday.. I know it but I don’t know it, if you know what I mean.

Have a Thumpin’ Thursday!

Sick Day Today

Sundays 24 hour cold seems to have made a comeback. I went to work Monday, feeling like crap because I had some mandatory stuff to do. I was feeling better by the afternoon. Yesterday, I felt ok when I went to work, but got worse all day. This morning, when I opened my eyes, I felt OK, but I can tell I should be taking a sick day. Already feel crappier.

Here’s a couple pictures because the pic makes the post!

Have a nice day!
