Wednesday Weirdness #362

I saw a guy driving on the sidewalk so he didn’t have to go the wrong way down a one-way street. And then he drove the wrong way on a less busy one-way street. It’s amazing at what people will do in order to avoid going around the block. I’m not surprised. Just disgusted. People don’t expect cars on the sidewalk. He could have very easily hit someone who wasn’t paying attention.

Monday Monologue #362

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

  • Our weekend trip was very well timed. We’ve been back for less than 24-hours and its already snowing outside.
  • Rowing season suddenly being over is mildly depressing. Obviously, its time. But it looks like we’ve got a long, cold snowy winter ahead of us.
  • When I was leaving work today, I saw someone driving the wrong way down a one-way street deliberately as a short cut. They weren’t going very far and no cars were coming so it was “OK”.
  • Happy Veterans Day to all of the veterans out there.

Friday Featurette #361

The Wife sitting naked on the bed after a "photo" sessionBelieve it or not, we are taking a second consecutive three-day weekend trip to some place sunny and warm. (Unfortunately, neither of us is off on Monday.) This is definitely our last blast of summer. Have a great weekend.

Wednesday Weirdness #361

I had another one of those “this has to be done by end of day” tasks assigned in the late afternoon. It goes with the territory; but it’s getting old. Sometimes it’s necessary. But, sometimes it’s just poor planning.

Monday Monologue #361

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

  • We had a great weekend on the road. The only bad part was returning to the cold and dark on Sunday.
  • I know I say this every year; but I hate the time change.
  • It’s also annoying to set our old-style analog watches with second hands since it can only be done accurately when the second hand is on the hour.
  • It’s almost time to winterize our boats. A sad but necessary step that marks the absolute end of rowing season.

Traditional Thursday #360

The Husband on top of The Wife with her legs togetherWe’re supposed to have temperatures below freezing this weekend. Where did the summer go? It was good; but it definitely wasn’t long enough. We closed our pool two weeks ago. And we’ve started other winterization tasks like taking down the outdoor fountain. I may cut the grass one more time, mostly for the leaves. After that, I’ll need to convert my outdoor power equipment to snow removal mode. Its rainy and dreary now. Hopefully this is the worse it gets for a while; but I doubt it.
