Coffee is up... I awoke to a chuckle this morning  ;D
And the Darwin Award goes to....


  According to police, McClellan "stole 13 scratch-off tickets from the Speedway convenience store at 32 Bay Esplanade. When he found out that one was a winner, he went back to the same store to cash it in."

For M2 or any of you wanting your own target range.  I think someone with some shop experience could copy these. Price wise they are not outrageously priced.

I’ll stir the coals for the night crew.

Long day today.  While the future-Mrs was out horsing about at this new barn, I went around town to try and track down a trailer sway control kit for this long trip we’re about to embark on. Most places (Autozone, O’reilly, Napa) have them at the warehouse, but with a delivery date several days after we leave. I tried a bunch of places, finally got one at Murdoch’s for $65.  So that is one more check off the list.
After this, we went to a couple places to look for furniture for our very empty place. We managed to get a squeaky computer chair. Close enough.
I stopped by the airport to inquire about a job. While I was in the office at a mechanic place, I was chatting with the office lady, and one of my C-130s happened to taxi by outside. So that was perfect timing. I may be getting a job there operating their fuel farm, which is better than nothing.

The final part I’ll mention in this long winded post is that a friend of my parent’s died yesterday by his own hand. He was 90.

I think we are getting just remnants of the storm. It still a day away, I think. I think PE and Del and possibly Slim will get more of it. We will see what round 2, delivers. At least we are not burning up.
