Friday Featurette #254

The Husband and The Wife having sex side by sideWe are on a late summer staycation vacation next week and will be taking the week off from blogging. Instead were going to get outside and enjoy the summer. Everyone have a great weekend. See you on the other side.

Traditional Thursday #254

The Husband going down on The WifeWe’ve winding down the dog days of summer and are enjoying each and every one of them. Labor Day is right around the corner and we are not happy to see it arrive. This summer has flown past in a blink of an eye. We did a twilight row this week that was MUCH earlier than it would have been last month. It’s becoming very clear that we don’t have that much summer left. So, we are going to enjoy it while it lasts.

Wednesday Weirdness #254

We replaced all the wheels on the seats on our boat today. I hadn’t realized how worn they were. Just like everything else, you don’t realize when things slowly degrade over time. The new ones don’t squeak and roll much more smoothly. I guess that’s yet one more thing that we need to do every year or so.

Tuesday Two For #254

The Wife standing naked in front of the mirror drying her hairWe haven’t made a lot of progress toward fixing the sound tracks on videos. The best solution would be to reduce the noise at its source; but, there isn’t an easy way to do that besides getting a new bed. The second-best solution would be to take pictures elsewhere; but that isn’t regularly possible, especially with our summer schedule. So, it’s still on the to-do list as we search for alternatives.

Monday Monologue #254

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).

  • The events of this past weekend went well. Despite rain on Friday and Sunday. the weather on Saturday was great and everyone had a good time. And, it’s getting to be normal behavior; but the temporary dog was very well behaved.
  • I had my car in the shop for what should have been a simple task which ended up taking hours. New vehicles are nice; but they all of their electronics makes them extremely complicated.
  • I purposefully didn’t cut the grass over the weekend. It isn’t too long yet; but it will be by next weekend. Especially if it rains. But that’s the way of things. I would rather be cutting grass tan shoveling snow.
  • We had a great row today. We can go faster than we thought we could when we are adding speed and power. All of the work we’ve done this summer has been beneficial.

Friday Featurette #253

The Wife sitting naked on the bed before a "photo" sessionWe’ve got a busy weekend planed and its already started with the temporary dog and her owner coming home. Hopefully the rain gods will smile on us and everything will go smoothly. Wish us luck and have a great weekend. We will see you on the other side.

Wednesday Weirdness #253

There is a new version of WordPress available which apparently fixes some of the things that the last update broke. IT would be better to NOT break things. But, when you use “free” software, you get what you get. And, in some cases what you get is a gigantic nuisance.

Monday Monologue #253

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).

  • My Saturday was even busier than I expected. It was all good. But I’m still hoping for a quiet relaxing Saturday sometime in the next few weeks.
  • We’ve been washing our boat more frequently than in the past and we can definitely tell the difference. We’re getting a lot fewer hard water spots than we used to. We will certainly look good at our next regatta.
  • We row it a lot; and definitely are getting our money’s worth; but, it still seems wield that we have our own boat. It’s nothing we would have ever even considered when we first started. Now it’s our preferred row.
  • July has been a lot more rainy than normal, so I’ve had to cut the grass a lot more than normal. In a summer with ordinary rainfall, I would not have needed to cut the grass nearly as much as I have been.
