Another Week Gone By Already? Damn!

GPNG-021Weather varies from cloudy and kinda cool to sunny and HOT and me and the Dog try to dress for it all. When we gotta get dressed that is.

Been busy doing yard work stuff, including whack-weeding about .5 miles around the edges of the property and the trail the Dog and I walk several times a day. Way Too Much Whack-Weeding! I’m too old for this crap.

Other than that just not a whole lot going on. Sometimes being “retired” just ain’t worth it.

The Yeasu folks got my radio and let me know they’ll get to it when they get to it. Could take 2 to 6 weeks just to be diagnosed.

Set up my real spray paint machine to paint the fence out back. Took the fence apart so I wouldn’t spray the house at the same time. Was spraying one section when the pressure hose split. They Waz Paint Everywhere! Wasted about half of the paint before I could get it turned off. Aaarrggghhhh! So I would up doing one face of the different sections by brush before I ran out of paint. Have to get some more. Put the fence back in place to get it out of the way.

Ex-Renter shit: Got word that he told a friend that he was going to invite some people to help him move his shit and try to kill us all before the Sheriff could kill him. Basically suicide by cop. So the Sheriff’s went over to talk to him and he cancelled coming over. Good move…

Later, when they went back to arrest him for several No-Contact violations, the idiot fought with them. So, he got arrested for Criminal Mischief, Official Misconduct (no-contact stuff), and Resisting/Interfering with Police on top of the other felony’s. His bail is $100k per charge.

I was going to get rid of his “stuff” before all this. His lawyer (scum sucking lawyer) mailed me a letter saying I didn’t have the authority to evict the ex-renter (which I did according to the lease) and “asking” that I keep his stuff until he can get it. (Which won’t be for awhile now unless he can make $300k bail.) So I’m thinking of piling it all under my deck and covering it with a tarp. And charging him $100/mo for storage.

So, interesting week even though I didn’t get out of the house that much. SWMBO gets to pick the restaurant tomorrow since I chose the all-you-can-eat place last Saturday. I really look forward to our dates!

Picked SWMBO up cause it’s Friday. Nice!

Does No One Else See The Irony?

That the US Post Office will sell you insurance on any item you ship via USPS against the chance that they lose of damage it. I mean, isn’t that like McDonalds selling you insurance that the burger you eat is well done and won’t make  you sick? And doesn’t it say even more about the integrity of the USPS that they won’t take responsibility for the items you PAY to have them get from one place to another in a timely/safe manner?


What if your babysitter offered insurance that she wouldn’t bend, break , or mutilate your kids while they were in their care? Hookers need to start selling insurance against catching an STD from them.

What brought this on is that I finally mailed my 857d off to the yaesu folks in Southern California. It’ll be there in 3 days. Had to insure my $800 radio “just in case.” Which didn’t cost much but just seems wrong for some reason. But, it’s off and hopefully it’ll be an easy fix. And inexpensive fix. A Cheap Fix would do.

And that pretty much sums up my day. Went for some walks. Climbed on the roof to take down the rest of my multi-band fan dipole. Gardening. Burned trash when it started to sprinkle a bit.


Got to pick SWMBO up; cause it’s Friday and that’s what we do on Friday. She had me go through McDonald’s on the way home. Even got the Dog a burger. I got a medium vanilla shake. Should have gotten a small vanilla shake.

She also had me spit into this test tube thingie for the Ancestry DNA testing. That’ll be interesting. Even if I do test out as being a member of the Human race, will I actually have “family” out there somewhere? We’ll see in 3-5 weeks.

And that’s it. I’m feeling really tired and think I’ll go lay down. Maybe read a bit.

Turned Into A Nice Afternoon

I got to view the total eclipse last August. I’m still awestruck with the moment of totality. There was a big, black, hole in the sky that could have been an entry to another dememsion or a space-gate or some sci-fi thing like that. Cool As Fuck!


Spent part of the day helping one of the guys from the South Club (MCARC) get familiar with how to post to our web site and how to install “stuff” in Linux. Was fun. (I don’t get a lot of visitors. I even forget to offer coffee or soda’s cause I’m just not used to visitors.) Glad if he learned something though. (Even if it was just to NOT try to learn anything from me!)

Luba01-05Then spent a couple of hours painting the doors I started on yesterday. Hooked up this electric paint sprayer thingie and it sorta kinda worked. I feel it made more mess than anything. Would be working just fine but would suddenly spit out a stream of paint. Have a dozen places I’ll need to sand down and touch up. So much for getting things done the easy way.

Sun feels nice when it comes out. Lots of clouds and some drizzle this morning. Sure will be glad when Summer gets here! But it looks like this afternoon is going to heat up a bit. Yay! It did. When me and the Dog drove down to check mail I forgot I wasn’t wearing anything. Made it safely. Thenk goodness.

Oh, had two visits by the Mason County Sheriff’s yesterday. One asked me to pass on his number so my renter doesn’t get “contempt” charges against her for not letting the Ex- get his stuff. Done. She called.

The other was the Sheriff asking me if I’d been contacted by the ex-boyfriend. Turns out he’s been breaking the “No Contact” order about 20+ times a day (by texting my Renter and contacting her on Social) AND he’s not supposed to be contacting me either (since I could have an impact on what my Renter does by threatening to evict her, whatever. Not that I would!) So, the Mason County Prosecutor is going to charge the ex-boyfriend with about 200 No Contact violations. Which will add time to the Assault 2 (federal) charges and possible sentencing. Poor guy just keeps digging himself in deeper and deeper. Idiot.


Door are back in where they belong. They do look a bit better. Not good enough to justify this backache though! I’m getting old.

Oh, part two: got a phone call from the New York office of the Internal Revenue Service. Seems I’m SERIOUSLY behind in my tax payments (to the tune of $93,000.00) and they’d sure like to talk to me. I am to please call during normal business hours to rectify the situation. 1-929-800-4786 if anyone would like to make that call for me.
