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!

Three Days and a Wake Up

Today, tomorrow, Sunday, wake up Monday and go to Italy!

I am ready to go!

Today is my last workday, It has been my experience, that on the days I want to take it easy, it doesn’t happen.

My wife packed last night! Thats the signal I was waiting for!

I think my scooter is totaled. $600 to repair a $2500 (new) bike…

Time to go, not to Italy, to work.

Have a good day and weekend!

Lincoln Lawyer

Last night the Wife and I watched the movie “The Lincoln Lawyer”, it was quite good. Highly recommended to see in the theater or on TV.

Lawyer’s defending a client for assault and finds out he’s guilty. Also, his client framed someone for the assault. AND he enjoys seeing innocent people go to jail for his crimes. AND he’s done it before. Super good. Much better than expected.

Thursday. Nice day. I feel like taking the car instead of motorcycle though. don’t really know why. Traffic. Parking. Everything’s a hassle with a car. Motorcycle’s the way to go.

We’ll see.

Have a good day! Watch that movie! You won’t regret it!

Plain Ol’ Americans

Cam Newton, quarterback for the American football team the Carolina Panthers, says he’s an African American quarterback, and that people are afraid of him. Funny, I didn’t know he was born in Africa, migrated to the US and became an American citizen. In my life, I have knowingly only met one African American. He was born in Zimbabwe, moved to the US, got a green card, nd later got full citizenship. And he’s a white guy. Sorry Cam, you’re just a plain ‘ol American, just like most Americans. And you’re a great quarterback, hope your team wins the Super Bowl!

It’s been my observation, that many Caribbean black people think it’s funny that American black people want to be called African Americans, because it’s not true. African Americans moved from Africa and became citizens, and it has nothing to do with skin color.   

Yesterday, I rode the scooter for the first time in about two weeks. The weather forecast had predicted rain every day till yesterday. Tonight, it’s supposed to start raining again, and rain all weekend. I hope I can make it home again this afternoon before it starts raining. The scooter was super hard to start yesterday, I was ready to give up when it finally came to life.

Have a great day!

Internet Down Mostly

It’s been frustrating around here lately. The internet has, for all intents and purposes, been down for days. It was up briefly last night, at about three quarter speed, but mostly it”s been what I call down. Even an email message takes an eternity to load.

I’m paying for 10 Meg per second download speed, and lately it’s been about 300 or 700K. Every six months, I have to call the company, and it’s a nuisance.

The weatherman has been calling for rain every day for the past few weeks or so, but we haven’t been getting much rain. Now the weatherman is saying sunny today, and rain tommorrow, so I’m riding the scooter today. It will be the first time since week before last.

Sheba went to the vet yesterday, she won”t put her right rear foot down. The doctor found liquid on her hip, an infection, apparently. Sheba has to take a whole pile of pills three times a day, and you can tell she doesn’t feel good.

Ad that”ll do me for today! Have a good day!
