Another humid day here on the Delmarva -- 75F / 24C, dew point at an uncomfortable 72F, heading to the mid 80's with a decent chance of a thunderstorm. Storms just missed us last night -- steered to the north and west. We could use the rain.

Busy day ahead. Already made breakfast, took DW to work. After I get done eating, I'm going to work on a dent in the bumper of my car in the hopes I can "fix" it to increase trade-in value. Submitted a loan app yesterday, expecting to hear back from my credit union on that. A little tricky with me being in job search mode, but I am confident I can explain the situation. DW wants me to bring her lunch since I have her car, need to squeeze in a run, then a Dr appt, pick up DW from work, then off to spa pedicure (heavenly!), and take out from our favorite Italian restaurant. PHEW!

Have a great Thursday gents!

Clouds are moving in, warm, breezy, and 76F / 24C, dew point at an uncomfortable 72F, heading to the mid 80's with a chance of storms later on.

Day got off to a good start with a confirmation of a phone interview next Monday! Took a Chevy Cruze out for a test drive yesterday, really felt good. Next step is to get pre-approved by my credit union. Still need to finish mowing the yard, especially with the chance of storms.

Tonight: DW is feeling better so we may go out.

Happy hump day gents!

Another beautiful sunny day here on the Delmarva! Currently 74F / 23C, heading to the mid 80's. Humidity may creep up a little more today.

The list of to-do's for me most likely exceed the # of hours in the day! The ones I know I will get to is a run, mowing, job search, cleaning the Keurig, and following up on my dad's Dr appointments.

Tonight: Depends on how DW is feeling. She went to work but was not feeling too well, so it may be a stay at home night.

Have a terrific Tuesday gents!

Sunny and 72F / 22C, heading to the mid 80's. Just about a perfect Memorial Day here on the Delmarva.

Yesterday was an "interesting" day. Started out normal -- out for our normal Sunday breakfast, but on the way home my car decided to go south on us again and ended up on the side of the road about a mile from home. AAA was called and car towed back to Firestone and DW's cousin's husband took DW home. Same issue as before -- all the electronics just go out, loud noises, etc. I told Firestone guys to diagnose but not to fix, as I've already sunk nearly $700 into the car, and I am highly suspect of electrical problems in cars. Already starting to look at replacement options.

We made a serious dent in cleaning our vinyl fence yesterday. Guessing we have about 12 more sections to clean today, but none nearly as bad as what we conquered yesterday!

Tonight: Either BBQ or take-out. Depends on how tired I am!

Happy Memorial Day gents!

Just a gorgeous day here on the Delmarva. Currently sunny, 66F / 19C, really low dew point for us (37F), may climb a degree or two more.

Got out for a nice 60 minute run, vacuumed, and made breakfast and lunch. Heading out to do some gardening, change the oil in my new lawn mower (Lowe's lawn mower expert said to change it after 5 mows), then in the basement to work on my wine.

Tonight: Thinking we may grill, but need to consult with DW!

Have a great Saturday gents!

High to 72 degrees today and afternoon showers.
Attended a baseball game with the visiting Giants. Weather changed so much during the day and night. We were rallying in the bottom of the 9th, and the tarps came out to cover the field. We were expecting fireworks for the Memorial game. After quite a wet wait, we left to go home.

The sun is back out on the Delmarva today after an abnormally chilly late May day yesterday. Currently 55F / 13C, heading to the mid 70's. We got about .50" of rain yesterday, but it was damp and cold (low 50's) most of the day, and I finally turned the heat back on for a few hours last night!

On tap for today: Already been to Firestone, as the "check engine" light came on in my car last evening. Hoping no major surprises out of this latest stop! Since it was rainy yesterday, postponed my trip to my homebrew shop 'til this morning to pick up my bucket of grape juice. A few things to pick up at Lowe's, strength training, vacuuming, and follow-up on some job leads. Tonight: dinner and listening to one of our favorite local bands at our local bar / restaurant.

TGIF gents!

Overcast and 56F / 13C, may climb a degree or 2 more but rain moving in later on. We could use the rain.

On tap for today: Dr appt, shopping, run, and heading downstate to pick up a juice bucket for my latest wine. Tonight: Guessing we may go out with the holiday weekend approaching. Guessing Mexican!

Mostly sunny and 63F / 17C, heading to the 70 degree mark with much lower humidity. A/C is off and windows are open!

Yesterday was a just weird day, highlighted by my 2006 Subaru Forrester deciding to quit on a major highway between appointments! I knew there was a potential problem, but figured I had a little time to spare until getting into Firestone today, but the Forrester had other ideas. Thankfully we have a AAA membership so no issues having it towed. Best guess is that it is the alternator, but won't know until they get it onto the racks. Took DW to work this morning and saw that it was not yet pushed in. Hopefully ready by 16:30 today.

Lots of items on the agenda today, including a dentist appointment, grocery shopping, drop our vacuum off for repair, workout at the Y, laundry, etc. Oh yeah, and look for a new job!

Happy hump day gents!

It will only be 75 in Sacramento today - my boss and I are driving down for a one-day conference. It reached 80 here yesterday, even though the forecast was just 72. Today's forecast is 73, so we'll see what the temperature ends up at.

Still cooler than normal with a high of 71 in the forecast. My boss is out of the office today, so I might actually get some work done!

We had a great thunderstorm last night - a rare occurrence in California! It was fantastic! Today is another typical day, 55F rising to 70 by midafternoon. Very mild temperatures for this time of year.

Happy Monday!

Partly cloudy, humid, and WARM! 79F / 26C, heading to the mid 80's with a chance of storms later on.

SO glad to be home! Very happy that my dad is back home and improving but nothing like sleeping in my own bed, with my wife and puppies!

Today I will be running on fumes -- 3.5 hours of sleep! But I am betting I'll sleep REAL well tonight! I do have lots to do. Of course back into the job search mode, mowing, and dealing with some car issues. My car (2006 Subaru Forrester) decided to start having mysterious electrical issues last Monday when I was set to head to BWI (1.5 hour drive), so had to quickly come up with plan b, which was to get a rental car! I'll return that car today, then get an appointment for my car at Firestone.

Tonight: take out dinner (I'm thinking Italian) and early to bed!

Have a good work week gents!

Beautiful day here in Tucson! 81F, clear, sunny, a perfect desert day! Heading back home at 15:50 today (arrive into BWI at 00:50! Ouch!). Still have an 1/5 hour drive after I get my bag, so it'll be close to 03:00 before I get home, assuming my flight is on time. Flying through MDW and they are forecast to have thunderstorms, and also at BWI as well. Hopefully by the time I reach these airports the bad weather will be gone.

Saw my dad one more time today. He was maybe not as alert as he was on Saturday but still doing OK. I know the staff at his retirement community are keeping a close eye on him.

Have a great rest of your Sunday gents!

Another mild day of around 70F with some clouds and little breeze. We got .03 inches of rain yesterday, just enough to make the car look dirty. It's a great day for wine tasting and touring the county though!

Cloudy and cool. Temps about 62 .

On my walk/run through the neighborhood, many homeowners were having garage sales. As luck would have it, the first one made me stop because there was sports equipment and other items there. I purchased some 25 cent golf balls, a water hazard retriever, a British Open golf towel from 2007, and a metal antique yellow Tonka toy with movable parts for my granddaughter. Changed my day for the better.

A high of 72 today means that we'll have a perfect day to go out and visit a bunch of local wineries for the Lake County Wine Adventure. Loads of fun!

The sun is out but it is relatively chilly (for Tucson in May) 52F / 11C, heading to the low 70's with a chance of showers through the day.

Dad was discharged and was back in his apartment last night. No calls from the med staff, so that is good. I'll be heading down there after breakfast to check in on him, and assuming he and the staff feel he is adjusting to life back home again, I'll start working on travel plans. Also plan to get a long run today, as I was supposed to be running in a 10K race today.

Tonight: assuming I am heading home tomorrow, i'll hit one of my two favorite Mexican restaurants for dinner.

Have a great Saturday gents!

Atypical May day here in Tucson -- 60F / 16C, cloudy, with a chance of rain and even a thunderstorm later today, and only reaching the low 70s, a good 20 degrees below normal. Nearby Mt Lemon may get snow showers!

Today will be an eventful day. We did get confirmation yesterday that the two masses (lung, brain) in my dad are cancerous. The oncologist that visited with us is the same Dr who treated my dad for throat cancer over 10 years ago, so this may be a good thing. Dr went over treatment options, and to my surprise, my dad did not brush them off, as I had feared. He was going to think about it overnight and let me know this morning. If he decided to be treated, he'll need to get some scans done before he is discharged, which likely will be today. I'll make sure to blog later on.

No set plans for tonight, and just awaiting what happens so I can start think about making return flight plans.

TGIF gents!

Thanks for the update, Patrick! I hope the tests are helpful for your dad.

We're cooling down here at the lake. Temp of 46, projected high only 67. It was a good thing I wore long sleeves yesterday. Today I'll probably wear a sweater. Where in the heck is summer?

Sunny and 61F / 16C this morning in Tucson, heading the upper 80's.

Busy day ahead. Heading over the hospital as my dad has a biopsy today and I need to be there for him and to sign the consent form. Unfortunately they did not know what time but the earliest would be 8AM so I'll be there then but if not then I'll go get some breakfast. Plan to get a strength training session here at the hotel later on, again depending on when dad has his biopsy.

Tonight: well, I got my Mexican food fix last evening. Did find a great restaurant near the hotel so if all else fails I'll go there. I'm in the mood for a steak!

Have a great Wednesday gents!

Was supposed to be a sunny day here in Tucson, AZ, but Mother Nature had other plans. Cloudy and 80F / 27C at present. Slight chance of rain.

Spent a few hours with my dad this morning, will be heading back thee this afternoon. Got in a nice run and yummy lunch (salmon salad) in between. Tonight: trip to my favorite Mexican restaurant here in Tucson (La Casita De Molina).

Have a great rest of your Tuesday gents!

Another cloudy but a little less foggy morning here on the Delmarva, temp at 69F / 21C, heading to the lower 80's, humid, and a chance of storms later on.

Heading to Tucson later this afternoon. My dad had a stroke yesterday and they suspect a tumor on one of his lungs. The good news, in spite of all that, is that when I called this morning and talked to his nurse, he was awake and alert and he did talk to the nurse which I heard. I was a little concerned when all the news hit yesterday that might not even make it through the night, but I am feeling more positive that I'll be able to see him tomorrow.

So besides getting ready to travel, have a bunch of tasks to take care of to make DW's week a bit easier (she is staying here). I need to be on the road by 3:00PM (flight is at 6:45PM out of BWI).

Hoping to sneak in a strength training workout while I am out running errands.

Have a good work week gents!

Another beautiful day at the lake. We're driving over to the country club for brunch and beautiful views. I hope my mom likes it. She's tough to please!

Inclement weather has greeted us. It was drizzling yesterday afternoon till evening. This followed with sleet and snow. Could not bring the car in last night, as a branch from a tree was blocking the driveway to the garage. Things are much better now. A little snow shoveling and knocking excess snow off leaves.

Fog and 70F / 21C, dew point also at 70F, heading to the low 80's with a chance of thunderstorms later on.

On tap for today: meeting kids for Mother's Day lunch, mowing, and some other assorted chores. Tonight: leftovers and relax!

Have a great Sunday gents! If your mother is still alive, make sure to call her!
