Bye Bye Baby!

This afternoon my Wife leaves for Scotland for two weeks. She cane home yesterday and super-stocked me with groceries. I fear two weeks without her, but I also fear not taking good enough care of her plants.

I would like to go to Scotland, but only my wife and her friend are going, the husbands are staying home.

She’s getting on the British Airways Cayman-London flight. It stops once in the Bahamas. The BA flight is the biggest plane that regularly lands at ORIA, Owen Roberts International Airport (where I work)

Have a safe trip Baby! I’ll be counting the hours till you get home! (I’ll tell her that myself when she wakes up, and when I see her off, and a thousand more times!

You have a safe trip too, through your day!

Someone Up There Likes Me

After my post yesterday, and a forecast of more rain, it is nice and clear today. Had a good run n swim this morning, and did my situps app on the back porch.

Last night was my Wife’s going away party, today is her last day of work as manager at the Guy Harvey Gallery. It kinda makes me sad, because the crew there is like family to me, but the wife is moving on to bigger and better things at The Cayman Islands National Art Gallery.

She starts after her trip to Scotland, which starts this Thursday.

I’ll be guarding the dogs and cats and most importantly, making sure nobody steals the sand at the beach while she’s gone.

Have a great day!

Catfood Theives

I’ve mentioned before how I have to guard the cats when They eat because chickens steal their food.

Here’s some pictures of the culprits.

Above is Whilefoot.

And here is blackfoot.

I don’t have a picture of Yellowfoot yet, but I’ll get one soon. Yellowfoot seems to have gone missing for the past couple of days, and I hope he’s OK. Yellowfoot is a teenage rooster about the same age as Blackfoot.

Blackfoot sneaking up on the cats.

Also, by the way, I’m posting this by writing with my pen and it’s being converted to text by my tablet.

It was a rainy weekend, with a lot of clouds and wind. Amd it’s still raining, but I got my run/swim in anyway!

Thursday, my wife goes to Scotland for two weeks. Like last time, if I don’t post for a few days, send sandwiches!

Have a great day! Have a great wee!k

The Flooded Bedroom

I had a dream last night, a repeat dream, about a house with a permanently flooded bedroom. The walls and floor and bed were all black. The floor sloped up, so that when you left the bedrrom, you walked uphill a little to dry floor. The house was square, with I think, four rooms. Outside, there was the house, and a gas station store next door. There was nothing for miles and life consisted of these two buildings. There were other people there, my friend Quincy, for one.

I woke up from the dream and tried to write it down, but I couldn’t. The paper seemed damp, and the pencil lead wouldn’t stick. It was weird. I’m aware that I can’t remember a lot of what I could when I was trying to write. And like I said, it seemed familiar, like a repeat dream.

It’s scheduled to rain forever, at least as far into the future as the weatherman can see. This morning I didn’t run, but walked a little with raincoat and umbrella. No swim.

Have a great weekend.

Crap Apps

People install apps, they don’t work, the people uninstall them.

Many times, I install and uninstall an app because it doesn’t do what I want it to do. I leave a review, largely to tell myself in the future that I’ve already tried this app, and what I thought of it.

Many times, the developer will reply to your review. Usually, it is the same cut-and-paste reply for every review.

By the time I, and I presume other users, see the google notification of the reply, the app is long gone, forgotten history. Like the devoloper cares.

First off, you get a “do not reply” email, If the devoloper cared, they could email me, not paste the same reply on every unfavorable review. C’mon pal, your app has a rating of 3.1, fix it. I’m not fixing it for you.

So it becomes apparent, the devoloper wants me to re-install their app that did not work. Initiate an email conversation with them, (because they were too lazy to email me in the first place). And then, back and forth with some receptionist or someone who doesn’t speak the same language as me, until I’m blue in the face.

I’ve done it before, and I won’t do it again.

There are some great apps and great developers. One app, years ago, “wasn’t available in my country”. I emailed the devoloper, he emailed the apk file, and to this day, he emails me every upgrade. And it’s to me, not some bulk email. And I reply, every time, usually it’s just “Thank you!”, but I reply.

That’s my rant for today. Here it’s still cloudy, but not raining. Yesterday, aroun lunchtime, a hole appeared in the clouds, and I went to the beach. Then it got cloudy again. This morning, I woke up at 3AM, went outside and it was perfectly clear, not a cloud. Woke up again at 5, totally cloudy. Got my run and swim in though. The sea and swimming pools are all cold again from all this rain.

And now, my yard needs mowing again. Bah humbug.

Have a great day!

Diving Dream

Last night I dreamed the Wife and I went diving in Virginia Beach. Except is was warm and clear. No wetsuits! We went inside a door of a shipwreck, and set up a little campsite, or picnic, and hung out there and made side excrsions, exploring the wreck.

Outside the door of the wreck, there was an orange fish, he and I were forehead to forehead, like he was a cat. Then the fish reached out with both fins and put them on my upper arms.

Very Pleasant dream.

Cloudy Wednesday here. More rain expected. But now, I’m sitting on the back porch, drinking coffee. Now it’s starting to sprinkle, so I gotta go.

Have a great day!
