Just A Little Bit Of SSDD Around Here

Started snowing right at 0700 this morning. Put down about an inch before it turned to rain; and now it’s all almost gone. Dog and I even took a walk while it was snowing. Turned to rain while we were out. Bummer!

SWMBO got home from church and fixed Ham, Mac & Cheese, and Peas for dinner. Yummy. She took the Dog for a walk while I cleaned up the mess. (Didn’t take long.) Fr17Now we’re kind of sitting around waiting for her Home Teachers to drop by. Should be soon …

They came over and visited for awhile. Nice people. Somehow we start talking about politics. Everytime. But it’s okay cause they’re as redneck as I am.

The MCARC 2-meter Sunday Evening Chat Net went well. They actually heard me tonight! Not really static free, but, hey, they heard me.

Anywho, that’s really all that’s going on. I’m gonna go read a bit.

I Am SO Lucky! Gonna Be A Rich Man!

Got this in my e-mail today:

Greetings,

I am Mrs Jessica Yucky, I am 62 years old base in Cote d’Ivoire I write to relate to you of my intention to use my money 2.5 million dollars for charity work in your country. I was married to Mr Timothy Yucky who was a contractor with the Government of Cote d’Ivoire before he died after few days in the hospital.I have been suffering from cancer I want to know if I can trust you to use these funds for charity/orphanage and 30% will be for you as compensation.

Please contact me, so that I will give you more details.

Yours in the Lord,

Mrs Jessica Yucky

al3So, you see, Gonna Be Rich! Sure, it would only be $750K, but, hey, that’ll pay off everything we owe anyone. Cool! Just hope my new e-mail address, WantedToBePrez@HillaryClinton.xxx works.

Not! Who writes these things? Thinking of offering to write one that sounds like someone with an education would write. (Which may disqualify me in the first place!) Maybe charge them $.01 per e-mail they send out and 10% of any profits they make. That’d probably make me rich.

Not a whole hell of a lot going on around here. Woke up to snowing this morning but it stopped by 0700 and was completely gone by 1000. Dog and I went for a couple of walks. Got my usual chores done. Pooped. Twice. Made some fries for lunch cause I felt lazy.

Fashion023sPlaying with my 857d to see if I can get the shortwave frequencies. Seems to tune right, and the display matches (once I convert from KHz to MHz) but have heard only one (highly religious) voice so far. Will keep playing with it though. If I can listen in on shortwave/longwave on the 857d then I really don’t need to buy a dedicated radio.

Really went the easy way for dinner and nuked a mini-ravioli bowl SWMBO’s had in the pantry for 6-8 months. Ugh! Have had worse though. I’m not sure if it filled me up or it put me off of eating anything else. Guess we’ll find out in about an hour or so.

Anywho, since it’s Friday, I get to pick her up at the QFC around 1915 (or when the bus arrives). That’ll be nice. I might even take the Dog with me.

Oh, yeah. Forgot. We had us a small 4.2 Earthquake the other night. I felt my chair kinda jerk but thought the dog had bumped me. He wasn’t even in the room. It’d be a much bigger deal to me if I hadn’t grown up in and around L.A.

Anywho, we’re back from picking SWMBO up. She’s eaten and sat in my room to talk for a bit. Off doing her homework now. Think I’ll go lay down and read.

Great American Railroad Journey’s Marathon. Ready To Go!

Sometimes I think the Weather Guessers just have no idea what they’re doing. Which is why I call them Weather Guessers.

frew1aaaStill, not a whole lot going on around here other than the usual. So bored I’ve taken the Dog for 3 walks so far. We may have another in a bit if it doesn’t start raining.

Dinner is cooking. Covered some chicken and split tater with chili and it’s baking for about 2 hours @ 350 degrees. Starting to smell yummy! (It was yummy!)

Well, for some reason the guys couldn’t really hear me on the MCARC 2-meter Wednesday Chat Net tonight. Said my signal was mostly just noise. Wonder what’s going on now? Even switching radio’s didn’t help any.

Looking outside it is just barely (barely) snowing. Only the occasional small snowflake. Still wouldn’t mind seeing several feet around here.

Anywho, y’all are probably tired of hearing me ramble on about nothing. SWMBO is home and working on her homework. Think I’ll put the rest of dinner away and go lay down and read. Or do Tumblr. Probably.
