Yippee- Jim passed his Extra Exam for his final Ham Radio test. He had gone from Technician, General to Extra in about one month. Wow- I am slowly studying for the Technician level, which is the entry level for Ham Radio. Since I never took electronics in High School, this is not as easy for me. And it has been 40 years since I did study for anything in school it shows.
We had a big T storm early this morning. A neighbor said he had 1 1/2 inches in his rain gauge.
Jim drove me to and from work which is nice. After work went for our walk and then did McDonald's to celebrate Jim passing his test. I had FRENCH FIRES and they were good! Went over my goals a little, but not horrible. The cookie didn't help of course. We stopped off at Best Buy and treated ourselves to 3 DVD's that we found on sale. Watched Premium Rush just now which is about bike messengers in NYC. Good story, lots of action and i was cringing at the falls from the bikes. Ouch- glad I don't do that for a living. I would not last 5 minutes.
Relaxing and off to bed soon.
