Good Monday Morning To You!

Back to work today. What a weekend. Saturday flew by. Saturday I looked at my watch and it was 11:30, five minutes later, it was 2:30, and five minutes after that it was 5:15! Today they should be delivering the boat we won, Holy  Cow, it’ll be real then!

Sunday we went snorkeling, and The Wife tested out her new Underwater Camera, a Nikon  AW 100. Blue.


She got some good shots even though visibility was crappy.

Yesterday I let the chickens out around noon, and when we got home from the beach they were nowhere to be found. We were afraid we lost them but at sunset, all four came home and didn’t even try to get away when I picked them up and put them in their cage. It was very  pleasing.

There has been another lost chick around all weekend, this morning I put her in the cage with ours, She is barely bigger than an egg. The Wife won’t be pleased.

It rained hard this morning but  now it’s all clear… Scooter or car? Scooter or car?


We Won A BOAT!!!!!





The Wife and I went out to lunch today, after we power washed the house and decks. After that, on impulse, we went to a boat show at Harbor House Marina. They were raffling off a cute little boat. My wife asked me if I’d like to win a boat, and I said “Not really, but I would like one of  those hats.” (everyone was wearing Harbor House Marina hats.) We went back inside and I found where they were giving the hats away, right next to where they were selling raffle tickets. The Wife bought a raffle ticket.

Then we went outside and there were hamburgers and stuff and a whole lot of people. Then came the drawing, we were so far away we couldn’t hear, so we went closer, just in time for the grand prize drawing, the boat. I went in shock when they called my name. I was zombified. I turned to look at the Wife and she was all excited, jumping up and down. I didn’t know she put the ticket in my name.

So they’re delivering the boat on Monday, I’m still in shock. I can’t wait to go out on it.

If I was going to buy a boat, it would be a boat just like the one we won.


Good News and Bad News and Good News and Bad News and Good News


The good news is that I went to the store  yesterday to buy a new picture frame for the one I ruined. The Bad News is that I spent a lot more money than I intended. The good news is that I bought these two really cool wooden, heavy chairs for the deck. (I changed it to wooden heavy because I can’t spell Anderondac) See above pic.

The good news is that I had a post planned for today but the bad news is that had to delay it because I couldn’t get a video I needed (I may settle for just audio later.)

And the good news is that it’s FRIDAY!!! Whoo hooo! Hooo Ray!
Have a good weekend.

A Load O’ Random Crap

We are gathered here on this Thursday, payday (for me), the day before Friday, to celebrate the day that has the potential to be the greatest day (so far) this week.

I don’t know why I started out  like that, it was just in my head.

Yes, it is payday, yes it is Thursday, and yes, tomorrow is FRIDAY!!!!!

This morning I got up, took care of the animals, then got ready for work. Normally I get ready first. I’m wild and unpredictable like that, you never know what I’ll do.


Here’s a picture I jjust took of me with my grocery store granny glasses. They seem much better than my optometrist purchased bifocals. But I look so OLD!

The paint with the letters on my keyboard has worn off. My old high school typing teacher  would be so happy!


When I was forced against my will to take high school typing, the be-all end-all of typewriters was out. The IBM Selectric. That was it, no room for improvement. Now look at us, $18 keyboards with the paint worn off.

Anyway, I’m going to leave now, maybe eat some cereal and maybe drink more coffee. Sorry for wasting so much of your time this morning. Have a good day!

Antique Dental Chair

My grade school friends Dad had a chair like this at their house, (he was a dentist). I really think the pedalwheel technology like this and on old sewing machines should be brought back.

This is from Neatorama

dental chairDoc Holliday is most famous for his friendship with gunslinger Wyatt Earp and for his participation in the gunfight at the O.K. Corral. But he was also a dentist, having earned a degree from the Pennsylvania College of Dental Surgery. He practiced in various places in the American West, earning little as his patients were wary of the dentist’s tuberculosis. Holiday opened a saloon in Las Vegas in 1879. Now a dentist chair found in Las Vegas and inscribed with the name John Holliday is up for auction.

The oak and leather mounted dental chair of Doc Holliday and associated equipment. Accompanied by a framed letter on Baker Gulch Mining Co., Las Vegas, Nevada stationary dated Oct 20, 1908. Statement of Donation: “When I rented my office above the apothecary on the Plaza, I removed a dental chair to make room for my own furnishings.I later noticed the name John Holliday on this chair. ………I now have learned that this is the same John Holliday, the famous shootist of a few years prior….I have also been informed that this was the last location that he practiced dentistry. I give this chair to the city free of charge in hope that a display of archives or a museum may use this infamous artifact. To this I affix my signature and seal. “

Well, maybe a museum will buy it. At the time of this writing, the bids are up to $2,000. Link -via Boing Boing

N.P.P (No Post Planned)

No post planned for today. I started a list on my phone so when I think of an idea for a post, I write  it down. So far it’s empty.

Here the weather is weird. It rains everyday, so I take the car, but then it gets sunny all day, except when lunchtime rolls around, then it gets cloudy. It’s like God doesn’t want me to go to the beach,

Every day and every night people come in my yard and take mangos. At night they wake up the dogs who wake us up.
Yesterday, while I was at work, someone took a whole tray of mangos that I picked and had in the carport on a tray, getting ripe. Maybe 8 mangos.
I don’t care that people take mangos, I can’t eat them all. But don’t come in the middle of the night and wake us up and don’t enter my property and brazenly steal the few I had picked for me. Mangos soon finish anyway.

Anyway, that’s it for today, It’s nice and sunny but everything’s still wet from rain, maaybe I WILL take the scooter after all.

Have a great day!

Back From The Brac

Got back from Cayman Brac yesterday evening. Had a really good time. Went to a Star Trek party in the Bat Cave, saw lots of friends, ate a lot, rested a lot and the time there was way too short. Below are pictures.
