Wednesday Weirdness #112

It looks like the “temporary” dog’s stay just got extended. I actually don’t mind the dog (much) now that she’s better trained. It’s the circumstances surrounding her continued resides that are frustrating. And the fact that I’ve had to unexpectedly train a dog. Technically, it isn’t my responsibility; but its far less nuisance to train her to do the things I want for her to do than live with the results of her poor training.

Monday Monologue #111

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

  • I’m looking for a new keyboard; but the only one I’ve found that I like costs $170! That’s more than three time what I want to spend. I wonder who they sell something that expensive too. I know I definitely plan to keep looking.
  • I’ve been using the Jacuzzi tub a lot recently. We had gotten out of the habit of using it since we didn’t have enough hot water to fill it after taking showers; but, our new water heated with its ample supply of HOT water has fixed the situation. Now we’re planning to use it more often.
  • The Wife was a bit under the weather today so I was bacheloring it. I’m fully self-sufficient. But, her not being around most of the day was still weird. For instance, we’ve always tried to eat together as a family so it’s very unusual for me to be eating dinner without her.
  • And finally for all the Buckeye fans, “O-H”. Saturday was a HUGE win.

Monday Monologue #55

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.

Wednesday Weirdness #25

Nothing else that has happened to us this week is as “interesting” as the near mishap we had during our photo session that I mentioned in the last post. I’m sure we wouldn’t be the first people that something like that has happened to; but, if we do have an “accident” we hope it’s because of a never before encountered malfunction rather than a simple oversight.
