Traditional Thursday #350

The Husband getting up to turn off the camera after a "photo" sessionWe never did get a new camera as we had planned. Principally because our current one we currently have has been (mostly) trouble free all summer. It’s still finicky and definitely needs replacement. But we haven’t had the sort of problems that would bring it to the top of the list of items to be replaced and retired. It would be nice to have one with a remote control.  Then I wouldn’t have to jump up out of bed so abruptly after a photo session.

Wednesday Weirdness #350

Our spam filter is configured to restart on regular intervals which usually works well and ensures that it doesn’t run long enough to hang.  Except occasionally, it takes a long time to start after being stopped and we get a flood of spam.  I’m not surprised.  But we get a LOT of junk mail when its offline for just a few minutes.  It’s amazing how much email on the internet is unsolicited.

Monday Monologue #350

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife)

  • Both Saturday and Sunday were busy days like we “like”.  Probably a bit too busy.  But much better than sitting inside waiting for warm weather.
  • The river we row on is really shallow because of the drought.  There ware always places you could see the bottom.  But, now it’s not deep enough to safely row in places that the water level was never an issue.
  • I washed my car so, of course, it rained.  Not enough to help the grass.  But enough so that my car didn’t look like I washed it recently.
  • We’re both taking some time off this week so we won’t be posting until after we go back to work.  It Looking forward to our time way.

Friday Featurette #349

The Wife sitting naked on the bed before a "photo" sessionI got locked out of one of our servers due to a wayward firewall rule. The server was working perfectly. It just didn’t allow connections from the particular IP address I was using. It’s been fixed now. But it’s frustrating there are so many hackers out there that such things are required. Especially since I’ve been involved with computers long enough to remember the days when the internet was young and such extreme security measures were unheard of. Have a great weekend.

Traditional Thursday #349

The Husband on top of The Wife with her legs togetherThis week marks the sixth anniversary of then new oars, our first major rowing purchase. Even though we still sometimes think of ourselves as beginners, we’ve actually be rowing for seven years and are experienced. Now we have all our own gear including our own private boats. Its been quite an adventure and one that we hope continues for a long time.

Wednesday Weirdness #349

Even though we’re in the middle of a mini-drought, my next-door neighbor is still cutting his grass. He’s basically “cutting” it to the same height as it was. Running the mower just puts extra stress on his lawn and doesn’t make any difference to the way it looks.

Tuesday Two For #349

The Husband on top of The Wife with her legs in the airAs you can tell from The Wife’s feet, we have finally been able to get outside and enjoy the sun. Although we do need to get in the pool more so there isn’t such a difference from wearing our shoes. Of course, that is a good problem to have. Especially after our wet rainy spring. I have started wearing a hat whenever I think about it to protect my head.

Monday Monologue #349

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife)

  • We had a great weekend. The weather was good and we were outside enjoying the summer. The only “bad” thing was that we had to get up too early on Saturday morning.
  • We were out in the sun all day Saturday so we didn’t get in the pool on Sunday even though it was great pool weather. Instead we stayed inside and enjoyed the air conditioning when we weren’t doing things outdoors.
  • My car still has 2% oil life left despite us taking a road trip this week. I know thus because I’ve been seeing the change opal soon message multiple times a day all weekend. I will be very glad to finally have an oil change the week.
  • It’s been so dry that we finally had to start watering the grass. Needless to say, I haven’t been cutting the grass.

Friday Featurette #348

The Wife sucking The Husband's dickWe’ve got yet another busy weekend planned. Sometimes, we wish things weren’t quite so hectic. Our busy schedule can be a bit tiring. But we want to enjoy the warm weather while we can. It’s much better than sitting inside all winter waiting for spring.

Have a great weekend. See you on the other side.
