The smoke has cleared and we had a little rain last night that might have helped the firefighters a little. The Rocky Fire is now at 22,500 acres and with only 5% containment, has the capacity to keep growing for a while. There are nearly 2000 firefighters from all over the state who have come to help out. Blessings on all of them.

The fire is about 8 miles from here, so we are safe from flames, but we pray that the ocean breezes keep the smoke away from us.

Cleaning the house today. Our friends Mike and Sandy are picking me up at 5pm to drive up one of our mountains to a little Italian Village where a big family-style meal is prepared and served. It is supposed to be great fun - I am looking forward to it!

Sunny and 83F / 28C at 10:00 here on the Delmarva, heading to the low 90's with moderate but not oppressive humidity (dew point currently at 67F).

On tap for today: long run (probably aiming for 6 miles), free fresh peach ice cream at our local farm, and a handful of various 1st day of the month tasks (like giving our pups their heartworm meds and apply flea and tic repellant).

Tonight: we stayed home last evening for dinner so probably going out, but I do have stuff we can grill if we decide to stay home. We'll just see how we feel...

Have a great Saturday gents!

Saturday is my rest day. No running or long walks. Maybe I'll get a few minutes in on my stationary bike this evening. On track today--driving my granddaughter back home after spending a week with us. It's a seven-hour round trip. Nevertheless, I'm staying out of the heat and letting the old muscles and bones rest today.

Another 100-degree day. Got a 8-mile walk this morning. No running today. My annual physical is today. Doing much better than a year ago so I'm a little anxious about the results.

Going out to dinner with my two 17-year granddaughters and maybe a movie.

Another warm day at the lake; the fire near us (about 8 miles away) is spreading, now up to 13,500 acres. We are still safe at home, but very concerned about the area and the devastation. Only 5% containment at this point. Droughts suck.

We are going to Santa Rosa to celebrate my new job (thanks, Patrick, for the mojo!) and buy some much needed business casual clothes. Also heading to Costco and Trader Joe's. It will be a fun day playing hooky!

Sunny but less humid today -- currently 75F / 24C, dew point at 65F, heading to around 90F.

Spent most of yesterday attempting to get my work laptop working. Did receive and install a new HD, but unable to get to a utility that would create a Windows image on the HD. Hoping to make progress with the deskside support folks today. Other than that, plan to head to the Y for strength training, and the bowling alley later for some practice. Tonight: We have plenty of leftovers, but DW had a rough week, and mine has not been as productive as I had hoped, so we may go out tonight.

TGIF gents!

78 degrees at 5AM expecting 100 degrees at 73% humidity. Dew point 76. Finished 10.5 miles run/walk this morning, was going for 12 but ran out of energy at 9 miles.

Over the last two days, I had home network and telephone problems, upstairs' air conditioner problems, and a toilet back-up. Waiting on AC repair tech and plumber today. Replaced cable modem so network is ok.

My day is dependent on the plumber and AC technician. otherwise, I cooking salsa chicken for my grandkids and staying cool.

Hope you all have a great day!

72 this morning headed for a high of 102, another hot one. The fire that broke out yesterday afternoon just before I left work to come home for the day is still going, although the latest update from CalFire was at 10:30pm last night. The downtown area where my office is has not been evacuated, but parts south of us have. About 500 people have been affected.

Another steamy day here on the Delmarva. The 08:00 reading was 77F / 25C, dew point also at 77F, heading towards 90 with a strong thunderstorm possible later today.

On tap for today: Some real work, though it will be limited due to work laptop having a bad hard drive upon arrival, a few errands, and run.

Tonight: Our plans are to go to the State Fair, but weather could impact those plans. Haven't come up with "plan b" just yet.

Have a great Thursday gents!

Another hot one is south Texas but a little overcast this morning. Took advantage of the clouds and did 12 miles run/walk. Still hanging with the grandkids today. Landline phones are out so I waiting on a technician to call.
Probably go by the gym to do a little weights working on the upper body.
this afternoon, I'm taking the grands to a movies - Antman.

Another hot and humid day here on the Delmarva. At 09:00, already 80F / 27C, dew point at an sweltering 80F as well, heading towards 90 with heat index at or over 100. Rain in the forecast for tonight.

On tap for today:

- Receive new work laptop (UPS says it'll be here between 10:00 and 13:00)
- Get new laptop in operational order (typically they have the basics but no MS Office, etc)
- Hope to get at least the back yard mowed

Got to the Y early this morning (05:30) -- had a bit of a restless night sleeping -- guess I was excited that I am REALLY going back to work today!

Tonight: may still be working, and we have leftovers from Saturday for dinner

Happy hump day gents!

Writemann1 - I'd love to read your novella. Our next door neighbor just published a novel, and I got an advance copy. (He should have had an editor, imho.) What are grammatical arrows? Do they pierce holes in the storyline? :)

It finally cooled down last night and is 72 this morning (it was still 88 at about 9pm). The air is calm and the lake is smooth. It's supposed to be about 103 today and tomorrow both. Ughhh...

Will finish my novella today. Check for Obvious grammatical arrows and story continuity problems. Then try and find 2-4 readers who like humorous mysterys for their comments.

97F for this afternoon, Heat Index will get to 112F.
Today is re-cycle day: bottles, plastics, cardboard and metal containers.

Before I can start on the climax of my story, I need to do a character movement grid to make sure I've tied up loose ends. Hopefully I haven't created a Gordian Knot.

The humidity comes back with a vengeance today! Currently 77F / 25C, dew point also at 77F, heading to the upper 80's with heat index well into the 90's. Slight chance of storms tonight.

My first day back to work has been pushed a few days out. Apparently my new worktop was not ordered, and I pretty much can't do my job without it. Worse case scenario would be middle of next week, but hopefully sooner. The good news is that I focus on a couple of projects that I thought might have to become weekend projects, most notably our back deck.

On tap for today: bowling practice, Sam's Club and pet store shopping, and a 30 minute run. This afternoon when the heat is up, will be working on my office. I am making some progress.

Tonight: Guessing we'll be going out for dinner, since we have not been out since last Friday (that is like an eternity for us!). DW having a really busy and stressful week, so I'm sure she is going to want to get out. We may go down to one of our nearby seafood restaurants which has a classic car show each Tuesday.

Have a terrific Tuesday gents!

The heat wave continues - mid 60s heading toward 100.

i'm still flying high from my second interview yesterday. I'm using Patrick's good fortune as a sign of my own, that this job is coming to me and I just have to be patient. I'm hoping for good news at the end of the week.

We are heading into another heatwave, 94 today, 103 on Wednesday. It will cool off to 100 by Friday, hopefully.

I'm back from my Michigan trip, and ready to start a new week! I have my second interview at the community college today, meeting the president and vice-president of our campus (based in Woodland, California). It would be great to hear something this week, but they want to get the board of directors' approval before making the decision, and that won't happen until the 13th. They want the new person to start on the 17th!

Cloudy and 70F / 21C, heading to the upper 80's with a good chance of rain throughout the day. Already had a downpour early this morning that dumped 0.82" of rain in a short amount of time. Hadn't had any rain in a few weeks so it was welcome.

So today is my first day back at work, but have not yet heard from my manager. She was on vacation last week so my guess is she is buried in e-mail but hopefully I am high on her priority list. Other than than, will be heading to the Y at lunchtime for a strength training workout, brush the dog's teeth, and keep making progress on my office. Tonight: Guessing it'll be a leftovers night. DW went into the office today (normally works from home on Mondays) so I am betting she'll just want to lay low, which I am more than OK with.

Have a good work week gents!

I made it home safe and sound from my quick trip to Michigan. It was a wonderful trip and my heart is full with all the conversations and hugs from long-time friends and family.

Second interview with the college tomorrow morning in Williams, about a 45-minute drive away. I will be meeting with the President and Vice-President of the college, and I hope it goes well!

Sunny and 82F, dew point ticking upwards to 66F, heading to the upper 80's today with a slight chance of a thunderstorm. Better chances tomorrow.

So this is my last day of retirement -- been an interesting last few months -- but anxious to get back to work on Monday morning.

On tap for Sunday: Clean Keurig, office organization (ongoing, but now I have some plastic bins to make it all look better and more organized), dog nails, doggie poop duty in the the back yard, and racking my Viognier. DW is off to meet a friend for lunch so may try to get caught up on a DVR show or two that she does not care for (read: sci fi!).

Tonight: Guessing we'll be eating at home. I cooked last evening, so we could do leftovers. We shall see.

Have a great Sunday gents!

It turned into a beautiful day for the celebration of life service for my uncle. Lots of stories shared, many hugs. Some of the people I hadn't seen in over 40 years!

Sunny, 84F / 29C, dew point up a bit today to 65F, climbing to the upper 80's later this afternoon.

DW and I went out for breakfast this morning since she has lunch plans tomorrow. Also stopped at Lowe's as my hose cart decided to break! It was plastic and we went with a more expensive but sturdier steel model.

On tap for the rest of today: running (60 minute easy jog, breaking in my new running shoes), office, dog teeth, and I'm sure a few other things I can't think of. Tonight: Staying home for sure. Not sure if it is a takeout night or I am cooking.

Have a great rest of your Saturday gents!

68F at 7 am and partly cloudy in East Lansing, MI on the MSU campus. Headed to an afternoon high of 84F with a 50% chance of rain. We may need to dodge some rain drops at
Forest Akers Golf Course.

My favorite roasted potato recipe is dijon mustard, Italian herbs, and extra virgin olive oil. Let me know how goes turn out Patrick!

I'm at the MSP airport waiting for my next flight. I'll be in Grand Rapids about 5:30pm. It's cloudy out there, but agonist chilly inside. I got a lot of walking in at both airports today, and had a healthy Subway sandwich for lunch. So far, so good!

Have a great weekend!

Another gorgeous day here on the Delmarva. 71F / 22C, dew point at a very comfortable 63F, heading the mid 80's. One more day of comfortable temps and humidity before the muggies move back in on Sunday. WINDOWS ARE OPEN!

My last day of retirement! On tap for today: housecleaning, cook up some oven roasted potatoes (experimenting with a combination of Hidden Valley Ranch dressing powder mix and Lipton's Onion Soup mix combined), strength training at the Y, get office in ready mode for going back to work next week, trip to Lowe's to pick up some plastic bins so I can get my office organized, and if time allows some bowling practice. Just bought a new bowling ball yesterday and was excited at how this new ball reacts, and while I normally don't bowl on back to back days, I may make an exception today!

Tonight: meeting DD2 for dinner at a seafood Mexican restaurant that we have heard wonderful things about.

TGIF gents!

Nice morning, in the low 70's. Heading to the 90's with a 'feels like' 103.
Need to finish staining my deck, then work on my novella.

Temps in the upper 80's, humid. Went to the fitness course at the park and watched other people sweat.

Clear sunny skies this afternoon on the Delmarva, a decent breeze, 81F / 27C, dew point at a very comfortable 56F.

The day did not start well with both internet and TV issue. But all is fixed now. Picked up a new pair of running shoes, got in a nice run at the track, picked up a new bowling ball and got in 3 practice games. Season starts in a little more than a month.

Tonight: Going to the Delaware State Fair for some fair food and watch the rodeo. First time here, and it has been AGES since I've been to a rodeo. Should be fun.

Have a great rest of your Thursday gents!

It really cooled off last night - had a really good night's sleep. It's currently 65, heading for the mid 80s. A pleasant day to celebrate my birthday.

Interview this morning at the community college for the Operations Director position. I think it will go well, and I'm so excited about the job. Tomorrow morning I leave very early for the Sacramento airport to fly to Grand Rapids, Michigan. Staying with a college friend Friday and Saturday nights. My uncle's celebration of life service is Saturday in Shelby. I will see a lot of cousins and long-time family friends there. Flying home Sunday morning.

The forecast is a high of 90, which is a nice break from the 97-99 degree temps we've had the last couple days. The cooling trend will continue tomorrow. It's a beautiful sunrise this morning over the lake.

Today is my last day as a 57-year-old, so we're going out to celebrate with friends at our favorite Mexican restaurant.

Beautiful and much less humid day here on the Delmarva. 71F / 22C, dew point only at 61F, heading to the upper 80's but low (for the Delmarva) humidity. WINDOWS ARE OPEN!

Pretty busy day ahead. Shopping, a few chores inside, workout at the Y, and mowing at least the fenced in back yard. Tonight: Steaks and corn on the barbeque! YUM!

Happy hump day gents!
