Happy Anniversary, Schweetie!

After 28 years you are still my Girlfriend, Best Friend, Lover, Confidant and the absolute Best Person to ever share my life. Thank You.

Pretty “normal” Saturday around here. SWMBO off to the Genealogy Library for her shift. Then she took her friend (who’s afraid of being stuck in her house for weeks and being unable to go) shopping at Winco Foods before coming home for our date.

Which took place at “Famous Dave’s” in Silverdale. She had the BBQ Ribs and I had the BBQ Pork and we both got stuffed. Made a quick stop by Home Depot where we got some LED Bulbs, then our usual stop at Safeway on the way home.

It rained the whole time we were out and now the wind is starting to kick up. Oh, Joy.

Really Raining Out There Sometimes!

Old Sci-Fi Movie Day running in the background while I continue working on getting my radio/computer room back into shape.

  • Beast From 20 Thousand Fathoms
  • Beginning Of The End
  • The Deadly Mantis
  • Earth VS The Flying Saucers (Need to fix)
  • Flight To Mars
  • The Mole People
  • Teenagers From Outer Space (aren’t they all?)
  • Them
  • Thing From Another World, The
  • War Of The Worlds (1952)
  • When Worlds Collide

And then I should be ready for bed by the time all those end.


But I did get a lot done in my room. Cabinets are back up on the wall. CD/DVD’s are back in the holders. Shelves are almost full of the stuff they were full of before. Curtain rods are back in. (Still need SWMBO to adjust the curtains though.)

And I managed to still get my usual chores done. And I’m making myself pseudo-BBQ Pork Chops (nobody tell the Muslims), Mashed Taters, & Corn (yeah, I know. Two starches) for dinner. I may even save some for that lovely young lady I married.

Talked to my friend down in California on 14.342 using the 6BTV antenna. Worked pretty good for not having any radials on the thing. That’s why I tend to take it along when we go on trips and I take my radio. It just works. Probably one of the best $100 I’ve ever spent.


SWMBO texted me to pick her up. Late. She didn’t know her Son wasn’t going to make it until she got to Bremerton. Ah well. I don’t mind. At all. Just gives me more time with her. So she had me stop at Rite-Aid on the way home. Cool.

And that’s about it for now. I lead a very un-remarkable life. And I only made it to “Them.”

I’m Staying In This Weekend!

Lot’s of rain and wind moving in for the weekend. So I’m staying in.


Except for our usual Saturday date. I’ll brave the elements for that. Wx would have to be pretty terrible for me to miss spending time with my schweetie.

Our 28th Anniversary is Saturday also and I still haven’t gotten her anything. She may be stuck unwrapping me for her anniversary present. (Woo Woo!) Or I may just take her someplace “fancy” for dinner.


Not much going on around here. Trip to the Naval Hospital to pick SWMBO’s meds up. That took only a couple of hours! Then a trip to the Post Office to pick up our Thrive order. Built a thing to hold my computer under the new countertop but I’m letting it sit empty for now to give it a test; will I learn not to knock it around with my right knee? When I get that worked out I’ll probably build a “prettier” one.

And that is it for this Thursday.
