Not Like Christmas in the Old Days

Wednesday, March 16, 2011      3 comments

Yesterday we did a lot of things, but the big one was to make three forays into Home Depot to buy mulch, plants fertilizer, weed N feed, and a pressure sprayer. The clerk convinced me that the cheap one was a bad choice, so I got the best one w... Read more

Bad Eyes

Monday, March 14, 2011      5 comments

One of the joys of lasting a long time is that various body parts start to work erratically. My latest problem is with the eyes. I seem to be allergic to oak pollen, and it affects my eyes more than the rest of my head. I was never allergic t... Read more

Quiet Sunday

Sunday, March 13, 2011      4 comments

Today I reset a whole lot of clocks, read the Sunday paper (especially the comics and Comp USA ad), and washed the inside of the refrigerator while waiting for the BW, who was going to do it. I just started, and by the time she came back it was... Read more

New Toilet Seat

Saturday, March 12, 2011      4 comments

I rolled out at 6:00 this morning and made it to downtown Palm Harbor before anyone else, but Dan drove past me, looking for the trailer which wasn't there just as I got out of my car. I waved my arms in his rear view mirror to stop him. ... Read more

This and That

Friday, March 11, 2011      3 comments

Wednesday I went down to the Chamber of Commerce to find out where and when the Citrus Festival signs would be ready for the Kiwanis to put up. The first thing I had to do was wait a half hour until someone could talk to me, then wait another 1... Read more

Dog Story

Wednesday, March 09, 2011      10 comments

We had Shepherds for 30 years - went through five of them. I gave the first one away after a couple of years, and neither he nor our first bitch was a good example of the breed standard even though the bitch did win a puppy show. That got us o... Read more

Past Chores

Monday, March 07, 2011      6 comments

The mirror frame hides the bottom edge where the silver has flaked off on the bottom fourth to half an inch, but the glass is so thick that you can see the back of the frame in the mirror. I guess you can't have everything. There is another mi... Read more

Forgot to take One Picture

Sunday, March 06, 2011      5 comments

Today was partly sunny but had a lot of cloud cover, and is overcast now. I took some pictures, but it was hard because when the sun is shining and behind me, I can't see what the camera is going to capture. The Meyer lemon tree is completely ... Read more

Good Recovery

Saturday, March 05, 2011      5 comments

I groomed the dog today (gave Gracie a haircut) and skipped Ralphy because the BW didn't think he needed it. Gracie almost didn't look like a dog - more like a walking pile of fur. It was about two inches long and fluffy, so her legs looked li... Read more

Questionable Recipe

Friday, March 04, 2011      4 comments

We have been having great weather, even warmer than average for this time of year - around 80 every day and 60 at night. I took the dogs with me to the bank yesterday morning, but Ralphy was dragging when we got home. I didn't have to carry hi... Read more

Two Lost Days

Thursday, March 03, 2011      6 comments

Tuesday I snarfed up a total of 1785 calories, 450 of which came from a small danish, a two ounce muffin, and a cinnamon roll. Yesterday I totaled a bit over 1800 calories, but about 1000 came from pastries of one sort or another. The class we... Read more

Busy Day Tomorrow

Monday, February 28, 2011      3 comments

I guess it was worth going to Ruth Eckert Hall last night - the BW was very enthusiastic afterward, and loved it to pieces. I thought it was sort of long, and didn't really have a good time until about 65 minutes into it, when they started play... Read more

A Little More Progress

Saturday, February 26, 2011      3 comments

I painted the mirror frame today, but first there was a short delay while I glued the bottom piece back where it should have been. When I was putting the thing on a combination of the saw and a folding table, I accidentally took hold of just on... Read more

More Than You Wanted to Konw

Friday, February 25, 2011      4 comments

Yesterday I cut four pieces to the right size and shape, then started to carve out clearance niches for the mirror clips. I could only find a 1.25 inch wood chisel, so eventually went to Home Depot and bought a quarter inch chisel for about nin... Read more

A Better Day

Wednesday, February 23, 2011      4 comments

I had a pretty good night last night after finishing the day with a naproxen and rubbing on the Biofreeze every time I got up. Then I started today with another naproxen and more liniment, then went along pretty well until almost 5:00. I d... Read more
