Got close to 80 here, wife and I were cooking, house got warm but more really humid so I thought about opening the windows but would have to close them all again so I did it, ran the air for about 45 minutes, didn't drop the temp much but sucked a whole lot of water out of the air and made me feel great.   :P

So much for a high in the 40's today, it's already 68. ;D

Sparrow grass is cheap this year, cheaper than I've ever seen it, been paying around a $1 a bundle, low salt pickled sparrow grass, 2nd and 3rd batch, the new stuff is the darker green to the right.  Great for snacks.

For those who don't eat much asparagus eating large amounts does have an odd side affect, don't worry if your pee is a bit green and you decide to pee outside or are forced to by household members, it's worth it.

My '03 Springfield has sling swivels and a stacking swivel, again. It is happy.  ;D
BTW, got 'em from Numrich.

No asparagus yet in our "new" garden, need to go down to the old house and garden and check there.

My 'o3 is needing a proper stacking swivel, has one swiped off of my '03/A3, the stamped sheet metal kind. Got the proper band(currently on the 'A3) just need the swivel, and probably the screw.

Evening all.

Weather got into mid 40s here today. Low 20s tonight.

Work was frustrating today. Started off by having to drag 180 feet of hose across the customer’s dog poop dump site.   All for a measly 600 gallons of shower water. Took longer to lay the hose than to pump the tank. ::)

From there I had to deal with the DMV for a CDL test. Naturally they were late, and had the wrong paperwork. From there they were generally rude and grumpy. They decided to fail me on the road test for not checking an intersection AFTER passing through it. I’m rather peeved at them. I did get a perfect score on the backing up skills portion though.

Post-test we had to pump a tank at a construction site that nobody knew existed. County doesn’t have any record of it either. It was about 800 gallons of water, with 2 feet of mud at the bottom.

Anyway, I’ll end my ranting there.

My Charter 38 got a nice coat of wax today, just for monthly maintenance.  I was within a gnats eyelash of getting a Chief Special pre-Model 36. But then some unforeseen expenses have arisen, so I had to let it pass.

Well at least he don't like disco, he now does this when that song plays. ::) 

Maybe it's because we listen to Pink Floyd a lot when we nap. ;D

Good Morning All.

35℉, winds have subsided. High today in low 50's.
Yesterday was trash pickup day and there were strong winds, so the trucks were leaving a trail of debris that was blown out of the trashcans when mechanically grabbed and dumped into the side of the garbage truck. Couldn't be avoided, and they could not spare the time chasing that litter down. Collateral damage, I suppose.

Coffee machine was cleaned yesterday with vinegar and new filter replaced in water reservoir, so it might taste a bit off. Odd how you get used to having coffee flavored with impurities being the norm yet after the pot is cleaned and filter replaced it has a funny taste.

With the cooler weather return today is going to be a hot oatmeal day. Choice of blueberries or bananas to add.

Off to the Eye Doc today to have annual check. Then my six month visit to the Teeth Doc tomorrow. Getting all caught up on routine health stuff before traveling to the NCOWS Convention next week. (Wife and I getting second vaccine shot this coming Tuesday. Hoping there are no adverse reactions as has been reported by some with receiving the second dose.)

This is going to be a great year!
Keep up with those pandemic protocols for your own safety and those loved ones you come in contact with.

My second dose was two weeks ago yesterday, no reaction either dose....other than GLAD I got them.
I'm still practicing protocols for safety and for those around me just makes since, it ain't no conspiracy.

It has been a weird and tough week ....
I have Johns service tomorrow , the funeral home is allowing only family and closed to general public.
I'm considered family.
John was well known and liked, everywhere I go at our regular haunts I get condolences.
