Wednesday seems like Wednesday

Monday was a holiday, yesterday was the first workday of our week, but it was so long, it seems like two days.

We had a stupid meeting, that went late. They all do. I stayed late without complaining. Now I predict my boss will schedule all meetings for just-before-time-to-go-home.

Getting a little more rain these next few days. So the weather apps say.

Queens Birthday/Bruce Day

Yesterday was the  holiday for the Queens Birthday. Happy Birthday Your Majesty! (She reads this blog every day)

Yesterday was also Bruce Day. Jun 13. You can look that up elsewhere in his blog.

My back’s been hurting. Lower back, like the arch in my back goes away. This time it’s lasted longer than usual.

Also, in the really big news category, Little One the cat came back after 9 days missing. The Wife saw her get attacked by dogs. Really really glad she’s back.

Got my scooter back Saturday morning. Almost a month in the shop. Seems fine though.

And that’s your Monday Tuesday weekend report!

Have a good week!

Muhammed Ali Funeral Today

Today is Muhammed Ali’s funeral in Kentucky. My Uncle owned Everlast Sporting Goods, He met Mr Ali many many times. My Dad was vice president for Everlast, once Muhammed Ali talked to my Dad on the phone. He said “Marv, I need this equipment…”

I had the above picture hanging on my door in my room in Missouri for many many years. It was as big as the door, bigger than life size.

Rest In Peace Mr. Ali. Say hello to my Uncle and Dad for me!

Lucky Me

I like mornings, sitting on the back porch, watching the birds in the birdbath, feeling the breeze and loving the perfect climate. It’s the little things in life…

I could complain about our Internet, which has been off and on for weeks maybe months. But I won’t. I could complain about my job, but I’m lucky to have a job. (And well qualified, it’s not all luck, but many qualified people don’t have jobs, so I’m lucky)

Last night, the Wife and I went to bed, exhausted. Then we laid awake for at least an hour, talking. It was great.

Tomorrow is FRIDAY! That’s another good thing!

New Fridge

I forgot to mention that we got a new Fridge last Friday. Ours died a couple times in the past two weeks and the repairman said it was kaput.

It’s okay I rekkon. Looks smaller inside but mathematically it’s not

Still cloudy here. Not much rain though.

have a good one!

From Seven To Three

We used to have seven outdoor cats, Now we have three.  Over the years, they’ve disappeared one by one. Most recently, Little One went missing last Saturday morning.

I was in the shower, Sheba started barking then my wife started yelling from the back deck. Dogs were in the back yard, attacking our cats. I got out of the shower and she ran outside. I grabbed a pair of pants, and my baseball bat and followed her out.

No dogs, no cats in the yard. Wife said she looked over the side and saw three dogs surrounding Little One, our smallest cat. Little One jumped up on the fence and my wife saw dogs jaws reach up, grab her, and pull her down.

We found no blood on the ground, but we found where the dogs came under the fence, wrecking some banana plants.

Little One hasn’t been seen since and we fear the worst.

We used to have: BTK,  LeeLee, Shadow, LT, Albie, Goldie and Little One. Now just BTK (pronounced Bee TeeKee), Goldie and LeeLee were at breakfast. Shadow went missing while we were in Italy. From 7 cats to 3.

Saturday I went and got aluminum fencing wire and secured steel all along the bottom of the fence, to make it more secure.

I can’t imagine the horror of seeing what my wife saw.

Now it’s a cloudy Monday, time to go to work

Missing Boy In Japan Found

There was a boy, dropped off by the side of the road as punishment for throwing stones missing almost a week before being found today or yesterday.

When I was a kid, I did my best to not modify my behavior when punished, to illustrate that punishment was inffective.

Good job kid, I’d say you kicked ass!

In other news, we got a new fridge yesterday. Two and a half thousand dollars… My phone died, I called the manufacturer because of a one year warranty, and they say the IMEI number isn’t valid. Sounds like a loada hooie to me. Meanwhile, I’m getting my ancient Galaxy S III fired up again.

And it’s Friday. Rainy all weekend, don’t care.

Have a good weekend.

Fridge Died Phone Died Internet Down

Last Friday our fridge quit working. Got it fixed Saturday. Tuesday night, it died again. Repairman said it’s dead this time.

Yesterday my new-ish phone the LG G4 died. I was looking at Google news, when the phone crashed and got stuck on the reboot screen. I moved back to my old Samsung S III.

I’m on the back porch, contemplating taking a sick day so I can get a new refrigerator.

Also, the internet has been off and on for days. I planned on posting from work yesterday, but the internet was down till lunch.

What a week!
