washing machine blues

Sunday, September 25, 2011

(Great a title for a blog that sounds like some Black guy is going to use on an album -Sorry I can't think of any decent white blues-men that's why I said that not trying to cause offense.) Still fighting with the beast in the basement had to wait for some parts to come in (you would THINK living in the capital of the most prosperous province in Canada there would be NO problems getting parts for a washing machine - had to ship the cap in from BC!!). I guess there will be NO PEACE for me until I get it sorted. Of course after I got it all back together and I thought I had it sorted it still didn't work then I finally clued in and pulled off the drive belt - it was basically shot. There was a shiny spot where the pulley was basically rubbing on it and it stunk. Of course being as tomorrow in SUNDAY NOTHING is open.

    White Blues players? - Stevie Ray Vaughn. Eric Clapton. Peter Green. And my hubby. LOL.

I can relate though. I am using my 27 year old spare machine in the pole barn.

Happy Birthday Sam

Saturday, September 17, 2011

Sam turned 12 earlier on this week - outliving all his predecessors (cat brothers?) including my beloved Malcolm who made it to 11 1/2 and was thought he was a sure bet to outlive Sam. He is getting somewhat slower and more slovenly (especially when he drinks his water) but I guess that goes with the territory.

Hotter than a firecracker again today and tomorrow (fun time to be wearing coveralls- why not just give me a $*@#^#$&*!! SNOWMOBILE suit to wear I don't think you can make me sweat any more!!). Well at least I can't help but get my requisite water in - trouble is I can't keep it in!!

Hot week in September

Wednesday, September 07, 2011

Generally we are approaching the end of summer and the beginning of fall in the northern hemisphere ( where most of us live that are on here ) generally it is getting considerably cooler especially in central Alberta where I live. This week it has been 30 degrees C (86 ' Fahrenheit yes I am old enough to remember the good old days PRE METRIFICATION) which may not seem very hot to some but its as hot as it was all summer. We had one day prior to this this hot so yeah its hot for this time of year for us. Too bad I have to work this week (I used to have a job where I had to go out to microwave radio and fibre sites - I used to love going out out town ).

I know I missed out on some points yesterday as my computer went down (actually I was having trouble finding some documents and I went and did a system restore and then I lost firefox and thunderbird) finally got them up and running today after some grief. I am not much of a computer geek even though by looking at me and my resume you might think I was. I sometimes wish they had never been invented (at least yesterday I was feeling that way).

    I agree. They are great when they work and the ultimate pain when they don't.

    I always get upset when I can't log onto SP! At least you know you aren't alone.

    Can't log into SP every day, life happens

I don't log into SP every day, there was a time in my life when I did - but only because I was unemployed and didn't have much of a life outside of trying to find work and getting more into shape.

So don't feel to bad for not being on SP, it happens to all of us
