Try The Roof

As you probably know, i’m a very poor sleeper. When I wake up in the morning I do my exercise and meditation on my sundeck roof. I saw three satellites pass overhead this morning.

When I can’t sleep tonight, I’m gonna go lay up there because it was nice and peaceful and cool.

It’s what I built this house for and never do it.

Have a great day!

Wasted Fifty

Have a programable light switch .that died. I looked at it, 15 years old burnt out spots on the display, no lights no power, seemed dead.

I went out and bought another one. It cost $50.50. I was looking at the new switch and saw a reset button on the front. “Hmmm wonder if my old one has a reset button. Sure enough, it did. I pressed it and vrooooooooom! The switch powered up, I programmed it and it’s been working great!

I couldn’t find the receipt to take the new one back. So now I’m happy to have have a spare $50 light switch.

Happy Friday ! Have a great day and an even better weekend!

A Monday Again

it was a good weekend Has the work Xmas party, some yard work (I have a severe weed problem I need to do something about) I also finished modifying my new roof drain strainer and it’s installed.

I cut the notches in the bottom , otherwise the water would have to get about a half inch deep before it started draining.

Tonight is the Veterans Xmas party. I’m looking forward to that quite a bit. I want to buy new shoes today.

Have a wonderful week!

Not As Planned

yesterday didn’t turn out at all like I expected it to. I found water dripping in the car park that was coming from the bathroom. I called the plumber and they had to fix a leak.

Crack in the carport ceiling where the water was coming out...

I got done with the plumber just in time to go to the dentist. I thought I was in pretty good shape dental wise, but apparently not. I got to work just in time to go to a meeting.

The the day went by, and I feel like I got very little done.

Now it’s November 1st already, I find that incredible. Every year is indeed getting shorter. Seems like.

Have a wonderful day, unless you’ve already made plans to do otherwise.

Fixthings Friday

Above is the “sunrise” this cloudy morning. Walking the dogs was very quiet , no breeze, no sounds but chickens..

Yesterday afternoon I moved the wifi router downstairs to improve the signal in the apartment. I had to re-open a hole in the drywall to make the cable run U-turn.

This afternoon (or this weekend) I’ll fix the hole and hang the router on the wall downstairs.

Have a great weekend!

High School Reunion

Yesterday was the first day of my 45th high school reunion. It was fun. Even Travlin’ Tim was reunited with an old classmate.

Yesterday I rode from St Louis to Moberly with two classmates, Sheryl and Chris, and then met up with a whole bunch of classmates, most of which I hadn’t seen in 46 years, 1977. (Although it was the 45th high school reunion I moved away in my junior year so for me it was the 46th year since I had seen my classmates)

Below are a few pictures, I’m not going type a lot about how much fun the day was.

Not to mention how nice it was to see Moberly again, my old house, my old elementary school, and the newspaper I delivered.

Today, half the class is playing golf and half (including me) are going on a tout of the high school.

Speaking of gold, below is an old newspaper photo in which I played golf. Can you spot me?

Have a great day!
