An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).
- I turn the big 5-0 this week. I feel about the same; but, I amassed a HUGE collection of “over the hill” gifts during my celebrations this past weekend. She wasn’t the main culprit but I’m kinda looking forward to when The Wife turns 50.
- It’s been cool and rainy for the past few weeks. And, when it was dry, there wasn’t enough daylight to cut the grass. It was so much longer and thicker than normal that I had to adjust the mechanical idle on the lawn mower so that the mower wasn’t constantly stalling when I was finally able to cut it on Sunday.
- During family get-togethers, my brother sometimes takes the opposite point of view just for the sake of being contrary. It can lead to interesting conversations; but, sometimes, it just seems nonsensical. Especially when his position isn’t logical. Some things really are simple facts.
- The Wife has been getting a lot of junk mail from a persistent spammer. Except for the nuisance, it was actually “clever” since it was impossible to train SpamAssassin’s Bayesian filter to catch it all. But, it wasn’t difficult to create custom rule just for him and send all the messages off into Neverland.
