Wow. What A SSDD Sunday!

Mostly. I have been working on my “shack” the past couple of days though. About time. Put in the 2nd counter top yesterday. Today I rewired Our Network and set up the print server and printers. Mounted two monitors on the walls where I want them (for the print server and my radio laptop). You can’t tilt them or anything, but they’ll work fine where they are now. Up off the counters out of the way. I need a lot of counter top for working on computers and “stuff.”


Slowly getting my shack the way I want it. It looks pretty “homemade” right now; and it’s supposed to cause it is. I build for strength, longevity, and convenience. And it doesn’t have to look “store bought” for me to enjoy using it. And I may re-arrange it at anytime. A good shack can be modified as needed for different operating modes.


SWMBO had a friend follow her home for some Emergency Genealogy  research so I wound up cooking dinner. Chied Fricken, baked taters, and steamed broccoli/cauliflower combo stuff. SWMBO made some of the corn bread stuff we got from Thrive. Was good if I do say so myself. All of it. Not just the corn bread.


Not much going on now. Kinda sorta just waiting around for the MCARC 2-meter Sunday Evening Chat Net to start. ARES check-in before hand. Which is good.

Net went really well. Eight check-ins and it actually lasted longer than half an hour! Now I think I’ll finish the movie and hit the rack.

Godzilla-Final Wars (2004)

If I told y’all how my day went, you’d probably all gang up on me and tell me never to come back. Too bad.

Oh, almost forgot. Did put the other counter top in my computer/radio room. Or, my Shack, if you prefer. Looks good but will look better when I get it all finished. Now I only have LOTS more to do.


Pretty normal Saturday around here until SWMBO got home to take me out for dinner. Red Lobster! I had the fried shrimp and a baked potato. Was good.

Stopped by KOHL’s and bought a couple of pillows and a 3” deep mattress thingie for the Caravan. Then on to COSTCO for stuff we “needed” and stuff we didn’t really “need.”


Then the usual stop at Safeway and home.

And how was your day?

Think I’ll go hug that sweet young thing I’m married to.

Goodbye, Mr. Spock.

Leonard Nimoy. 1931-2015

Made a run to Target in Silverdale. They didn’t have what I was looking for and I mis-remembered what was there anyway. Stopped by the RV place and bought a couple of add-on mirrors so I can see around the Caravan.

Sprinkled the whole time I was out. Totally sick of the Wx here. I need to move to Guam.


Got to pick my lovely young bride of almost 30 years at the Ferry Landing tonight. Always nice to spend more time with her! She’s home safe. Shawshank Redemption is almost over. Time to hit the rack!

I know: short post. Probably a good thing. For You. Just not much going on around here. Neighbor kids are out testing their dirt bikes. At 2100 at night. Assholes.
