After a week, I was finally able to get back on the water for a quick row. With Hurricane F. forecast to make landfall soon I shouldn’t complain. High water around here is never anything like the aftermath of something like that. Be safe if you are in or near the danger zone. And, wherever you are, have a great weekend.
One of the things The Wife always says is that “if you have a lot of stuff that needs replacing that means you have a lot of stuff”. I sometimes forget that when I’m fixing things. But, it is a … Continue reading →
I received a reply to an email I sent from someone that put me in somewhat of a bind which was already frustrating enough. But, it subsequently it became clear that they hadn’t read the other five emails I had sent previously. It’s annoying trying to interact with people who may or may not read or respond to emails. Especially in the 21st century.
Our camera operated normally this week so we had a good selection of pictures to choose from. That shouldn’t be noteworthy; but, with all the problems we’ve been having recently, it was nice for to have no issues. I was … Continue reading →
An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).
The forecast was not wrong about the rain. It’s finally starting to clear. With the resulting high water, it will likely be a long time before the river is rowable again.
Amazingly, our next-door neighbor was outside cutting his grass. The rest of the neighborhood is giving their lawn at least another day to dry out. I know ours is still much too wet.
We’ve already had a number of unexpected purchases this year; but we’re considering buying a new sump pump. It seldom runs so we don’t worry about it. But it ran constantly all weekend. Its, definitely too old to rely on the next time we have a storm.
Our favorite college and pro football teams both won this weekend. That doesn’t happen very often. It doesn’t last; but, we always enjoy the early season optimism.
Despite raining for much of the day, the skies cleared and the thunderstorms held off and we were able to have a good row. Unfortunately, it’s probably going to be the last one for a while. It supposed to rain steadily for the next three days. And then the river will probably be too high to row. It was good to enjoy the out doors while we could since we’re going to be stuck inside for days. Have a great weekend.
I really like the progressive lenses in the eyeglasses I got this year. Except when I bump them and get them out of alignment. The issue isn’t as severe as the last few pairs I had. Unfortunately, today, I had a mishap that will result in a trip to the optometrist first thing in the morning. I can still read things OK. But, I’m starting to get a headache. Hopefully everything will soon be as good as new.
I got some “help” yesterday that was neither wanted nor appreciated. I didn’t say anything since I was very unhappy with what occurred and didn’t want to say something that I shouldn’t have. Now that I’ve reflected (and, hopefully, calmed down a bit) I’m definitely going to say something the very next time I see this particular individual.
Our camera died again after just two photos! This time, I restarted it in movie mode and, thankfully, it operated normally for the remainder of our photo session. Its old, especially for consumer electronics. We would have replaced it long ago if we didn’t use our smartphones for most photographs and videos. It’s unusual for us to have such outdated electronics. So, it’s doubly annoying.
