@ossobucotemp,
I could add the word 'stupid', but that puts an onerous take, and I only wish him well.
Lets say, I hope he diversifies in a speedy fashion.

I had a trying Sunday. I wrote earlier of my joint problems. My hip was getting back to normal, slowly. But on late Sunday, I discovered a screw in my tire. The tire was flat and I have not yet replaced the spare somebody stole from under the truck bed. I was obliged to walk to the store and buy Fix-A-Flat. So I got back and shot the air and goop from the can inside the tire. It gave enough pressure to drive on to the store, where I spent $1.50 to air it up. Then I drove to the auto supply store for a plug kit, because all the repair shops were closed. I recalled that I had plugged my own leaks in a receding past. I discussed the efficacy of inserting the plug without first deflating the tire. The clerk concurred that it works, if you do the job quickly. So I went home and yanked the screw and reamed the hole. But I could not get the plug to go in, until after the tire went flat. I had forgotten the little tube of adhesive that came with the kit. I realized at this point that the reason the plug would not go in is because the adhesive acts as a lubricant as well. So I got the tire fixed, but still had a flat. I had to walk back to the store to get more Fix-A-Flat. By the time I finished all of that, I was barely hobbling. But, this morning, the joint feels better and I am walking normally again. And the tire works great.

My neighbor has flown to her native Japan for two weeks. She asked me to watch after her beautiful yard. She had a sprinkler system installed that was to take care of all but a few plants. I was to water those few every other day. Yesterday it became obvious the sprinklers were not functioning properly. So it looks as though I may be watering all or most of it by hose. Oh, well. It gives me a chance to get out of the house more.

@edgarblythe,
Might it be a programs issue or plumbing? Inquiring minds want to know. Of course, If you started looking into it that might be a whole can of worms. Water under the bridge, eh?!

@Ragman,
This happened when she went to stay with her son last year. It's an issue with the control, she told me. I have worked with sprinklers at the apartments and it seems like as much a water pressure issue as anything. The station nearest the source waters pretty well, station two less well and station three just barely. But she has never shown me the control and I don't want to be prowling.

@edgarblythe,
makes sense. Though, that all makes it burdensome and much more time consuming for you.

@Ragman,
I don't mind where she is concerned. She is the best neighbor I have ever had.

Buying red grapes today. I slid them into a bag and they kept right on sliding. Turned out it was a bottomless bag. I gave them to an employee, who had witnessed the whole thing. By the time I walked back to get some more, he had beat me there and had put them back in the bin. I bought green ones.

It's getting so hot out I bought Rocky some dog ice cream. It's not a treat I would give him often, but he got one today.

In fact, a bit later, I let him play with the water hose a while. That's his mostest favorite activity of all.

My wife and I went to Yogurtland for some yogurt cause it's over 80 degrees today. I had the chocolate and mango flavors topped with peanuts.

Went to the auto parts store and requested a fixture that light up the license plate. At first he offered me a bulb, then looked among the parts for what I requested, then went to the counter and computer searched it. Then he brought me what I assumed was a fixture, paid over 14 bucks and went home. Turns out he sold me a cover. But I took the fixture from the other side of the plate and combined the two into one that works, so we are legal at least.

I read some this evening about a move to allow advertising on cell phones. Ads are deposited in the voice mail folder without ringing your phone. Not a done deal, but being pushed.
