I'm working harder in the yard lately than in the last few years. My daughter hired a crew to clean it up for me and I am trying to stay ahead of them so they don't do things I don't approve of.
just say "No cuttar in proxima la planta"
If it were only that simple.
After weeks of nearly daily rain, it has dried out enough I can get to caulking outside windows and the like. Get to it, boy.
So it rained today anyway.
An acquaintance of mine who takes pictures in the park took such a nice photo of my wife and me that I had to share. We had no idea it was being taken.
We are at the time of year when high temps hover at 100 degrees all the time. It sometimes relents in September, sometimes October. Pardon me if I sit here with no shirt or shoes on.
We can't see you, thankfully, so have at 'er! lol And poor you guys!
The dog doesn't mind. I feed him and he's cool with everything I do.
Good old WD-40. My fan was acting poorly, seemed likely to burn out. A few judicious squirts of WD-40 and it's like new. Window latch sticking. WD-40. I had to put away the can because I was beginning to search for new projects.
Street trash picked up. Spiffy morning, if I say so.
What radicalized me? Seeing a handcuffed neighbor beaten so severely by the police that he had to be life flighted. A grand jury refused to indict. Civil court jury found police guilty and awarded my neighbor $1.
Still adjusting to the loss of Bob Moses. I didn't go in circles that brought me close, but his work in Mississippi and later with children makes him a folk hero to me.
Last December I had my transmission rebuilt. Not long ago it started leaking. One day it gushed out fluid. Had it towed to the same shop. It has taken so long to have the work done I was getting frustrated. Today he told me they had to order a new valve body. It has arrived and they should install it tomorrow. I was worried it was outside the rebuild warranty but he told me it wouldn't cost me anything. Now if I could just recover the $85 dollar towing fee.
It just occurred to me to wonder if science has it backward because the South Pole is in fact the top of the world
