Random Thoughts on Hump Day


It looks like the Navy is having some carrier issues today.  Ah, they’ll figure it out somehow.  Maybe they’ll ask the Marines how to fix it.  Nah, they don’t have enough crayons for the Marines.

It’s another beautiful day in central Minnesota.  Not too many days like these are left for us even tho we are headed into August tomorrow.  It always amazes me how quickly the good weather comes and goes around here.  I need to get a bunch of sweet corn fairly soon.

I’m spending a lot of time lately writing references for people that I know.  It would be nice if they were writing them for me.  Do I need a reference letter to retire?  I think not.

It’s one of those nose to the grindstone afternoons for me.  I’m making lotsa progress outside.  One good and hard push and I can have two projects done in less than a week.  The first thing that I’m gonna do when I get them done is get a hair cut.  I’m looking like a hippy.

I’ve decided that I’m a pretty good painter … on houses and bird houses that it.


Tuesday Lunchtime


It’s a beautiful day here in this neck of the Hundred Acre Wood.  The temps are nice and the house is opened up to air out.  It’s gonna be a nice afternoon to work outside and stay on top of my outdoor projects.  I’ll be glad when the backyard projects are done since I won’t be dragging mud all over my deck and deck stairs.  It will be nice to finally have all of the exposed dirt covered up.

It’s one of those days in central Minnesota where the weather feels good but it’s not quite nice enough to shut the AC off and air out the house.  We’ll have those days soon enough. In the meanwhile, I took a break from my outdoor projects to mess around with my camera this morning.  I was supposed to be working so don’t tell my boss.

The garden is doing good.  Yeh, I know I should have used “well” instead of “good” cuz the nuns used to always chastise me whenever I didn’t use the correct word.  Maybe that’s why I refuse to write it or say it correctly.
