The Prisoner

My Scooter is a prisoner now. Triple locked, she can’t move. These are the extreme measures I take after getting it back from the shop last week.

It’s a rainy Monday. What’s left of Tropical Storm Harvey is passing to our south. I hear quite bit of thunder as I type this. Today is the big famous eclipse. I hink about half the sun gets covered here. But it’s cloudy… We’ll see.

Two weeks from now, we’ll be in Canada.

Have a great day!

Morning Laugh + Pinterest

I saw this on Pinterest and thought it was funny, in fact, it actually made me laugh.

I never really understand what Pinterest was for. I get notifications about pins, and I open the app, and see random pictures.

I have the app installed right now. Over the years, I’ve installed it, couldn’t see the point, uninstalled it, keep getting the emails, re-install just to re-check, still not seeing the point, uninstall, over and over. But the emails never stop.

Tell me what Pinterest is for???!!!


I got my scooter back from the repair shop yesterday. They tried to charge me too much, $1300 when the quote said I still owed less than $400. The total estimate was $750, I paid half when I dropped it off. Came to pick it up, expecting to pay the other half and was presented with a bill for $1300. I paid only the other half of the $750, but I was in there a couple hours.

Money is tight right now, wife’s buying a new car, Canada trip in a couple weeks, scooter bill.

This too shall pass.

And the weekend is almost here!

Ruff Start Monday

So far, it’s been a rough morning. I woke up at 2AM, couldn’t go back to sleep. Around 4:30, I heard the garbage truck beep-beep-beeping down our street, and I hadn’t taken the garbage out. Made coffee and couldn’t find my coffee cup, when I did find it, I was shocked to see clear water from the coffee pot pouring into it, because I didn’t put coffee in the coffee maker.

My WordPress app kept crashing, and I had to restart my device to get it running.

Now, I have real coffee in my favorite cup, almost done with my post, and I hope that from here on out, today will get better and better! For me AND you!

Hava goodun!

Exercise Doesn’t Count Anymore

My dinner the other day turned out very good! I forgot to mention it yesterday, while I was ranting about yesterday about my Vivoactive. Funny though, it’s still under warranty. One day short of a year, according to my blog. I rekkon I’ll be shipping it back today. Very disappointed, I’d say they suck, mine failed the same way twice, but my wife hasn’t had a problem. We both got ours at the same time.

I went running this morning. and the swam, no idea how far, but I’m guessing a mile. Without a fitness tracker, it seems nothing counts, the walking, running, biking and swimming are all for nothing. Like my job was to please the tracker, and fitness and health are side effects.. I’m a fitness tracker addict,

Garmin Vivoactive HR died again!

Went out running and swimming this morning. Logged both on my fitness tracker. Then when I got home, I saw the display flashing out randomness and die.

It died exactly like the first one died. I doubt it’s still under warranty and Garmins customer service sucks.

I’m pretty hooed on fitness trackers though. Need a new one, maybe not a Garmin.

Any idea?
