My bike is in the shop for a “tune up.” Gotta replace those spark plugs. I was going to to ride into town and drop it off at the shop but had a dead flat tire when I rolled it out of the closet. So I’m without a bicycle this weekend (the shop’s repairmen only […]
It makes me shudder. A basic truth that I’ve lived with my entire life ended tonight: that the Boston Red Sox are and will always be second-place also-rans. I’ve always believed that the true curse of the Red Sox was that their fans believed in it, and when they stopped believing in the curse it […]
Vacation plans are taking shape. It looks like I’ll be travelling to Colorado, Utah, Arizona, and Mexico. We’ll see how it plays out. Worse than fire ants, moquitos, and deer flies? The biting gnats are back. I’ve been working on our john boats this week, getting them ready for this winter’s marsh tours.
Today I went to the Jackson County Justice Court pay a traffic ticket for failing to show proof of insurance.
Well, let’s inventory the last seven days or so.
I’m watching the playoffs with my air conditioner on, if you can believe that.
Grr. Extra innings. I want to go to bed. When I was in college, the Yankees played a 15-inning playoff game with the Seattle Mariners. I had a mid-term exam the next morning, so I was in bed, with the lights off, the covers over my head, and the radio on. That damned game just […]
Well, the Yankees are pounding the crap out of the Red Sox. I feel a little better.
Bad news. I’m not going to Argentina next month. Maybe in the winter. Probably not.
I enjoyed last night’s whomping of the Red Sox, and missed most of the debate as a result. Lorena hurt her back and was at the doctor today when I got called. Since I don’t speak Spanish very well I am not really sure what is going on.
The Red Sox accepted their prescribed pounding from the Yankees tonight. All is well in Yankeeland. So far.
I’m back from visiting my folks in Colorado. The weather there was great! Dry, clear, and sunny. I come back here to humidity. Despite the nice weather there, I only got a very little bit of hiking in. Sort of a disappointment. I’ve immediately set to work trying to plan the logistics of my next […]
Ah, it’s baseball playoff season. Bad for my blood pressure, but my favorite time of year!
I could scream. PBS has “The History Channel Disease”: documentaries that refer to the past in the present tense. Robert Kennedy is not campaigning in Oregon, he campaigned in Oregon. Robert Kennedy is dead. I feel a letter coming on. On a better note, I spoke with Lorena this evening. I may visit Argentina next […]
So I finally got rid of that pile of recyclables. The dining area looks much neater now. Second failed attempt to talk to Lorena. Sloppy joes on the menu tonight. Might spend tomorrow night on the island to clean up.
