So, just haven’t really felt like posting lately. Depression has kinda sorta set in with the Wx changes. Along with the headaches from same. I can tell it’s going to rain 2-3 days before it does around here. Which makes it even more suckie to live in Western WaRshington.

wdRenter came by last Sunday and moved some of her stuff out; but not everything. I’ve decided I’m just not going to get upset about it; but will be doing “legal” things behind the scenes. Mailed (registered) “pay up or get out in 3 days” notices as per the appropriate sections of the RCW. Put the word out  on FB that I’m in need of a Lawyer and collection agency. A lady from Bremerton that’s done “many” evictions has offered to help me do what needs to be done in the order it all needs to be done in. What I’m really looking forward to is having the Sheriff show up at her work to serve her an eviction notice. She should have given me her new address.

I really wish she had done this the easy way for both of us. I expect a rather shrill screech when she finds out I’ve fucked with her credit rating the next time she goes to buy something. Hey, play the game, live by the rules.

Not a whole lot else going on. Mounted a couple of bright led lights in SWMBO’s room. Had to take out the fan/light combo to do it. She likes all that light though! I like it when I can make her happy.


Did the same in my room; but with only one light. Much brighter when I turn it on! I has 3 settings for different types of light, but since you have to take off the cover and flip a switch it’s pretty much stuck on bright. Ain’t climbing a ladder to change the tone of light for my room. Getting too old for that shit.

Got out the tennis ball gun yesterday and shot a line over a tree to get my long-wire antenna back up. Got frustrated yesterday so didn’t finish it until today. So far it’s working pretty well even though I didn’t get it as high as I want. Did some psk31 at 10w and got signal reports from West Virginia and San Diego. No place in-between though. Hearing JM7OLW (Japan) really well right now! (I should be hearing him. He says he’s running 200 Watts! That’s 150w more than expected! (or desired!))

I’m still getting old and my legs still hurt (a lot) when I get up or after I’ve stood for awhile. Really hurts to walk at first! Left knee still hurts but both don’t like stairs going up or down. But the Dog and I still get out for our mile at (or near) 0900 and make several trips around the back 40. And we’re doing more now that the Wx is better. Can’t wait until it’s like 80 degrees most days!

So I made contact with JM7OLW on 10 watts. Nice! First psk contact in a couple of years. I really need to get back into radio stuff. Maybe get a decent antenna to put on top of that tower I put in? …

Just tried transmitting on 10 meters. Folders windows kept popping up and down. Might need to put some of those ferrite cores on my wires…

I Know! I Know! Been Feeling Poorly.

tumblrAnd have thought many times  that I need (need!) to get off my lazy old ass and post; but haven’t felt like it. The last couple of days I’ve had headaches from the Wx changes. A real migraine Monday that lasted most of the day.

And I’m depressed over our Renter being a complete dick about moving out. Which she hasn’t really even started. A bit here and there but no real effort to GTFO. And that’s just what I want her to do too: GTFO. He ex-boyfriend was totally right about what she’d be like once she didn’t “need” me to testify for her. And she is totally living up to it. I’m invoking that “abandonment” clause this coming Monday if she’s not out of the MILA. Then get a collection agency to go after 4 months of rent and electric (which will get it on her credit report). I may even contact her ex- and let him know that I saw an awful lot of his stuff in there. (Maybe he would want it and go to the police to get it back.) All I know is that I want her gone and I wish she’d make it easy for all of us. But she won’t. Fuck.


She’s also disappeared from Facebook and hasn’t answered any of my texts. So I called her today and got a text back that said “Please quit calling me at work. I have work to do.” At least I know the number is still good. That’s something to give the Sheriff for when they get to deliver another Eviction notice. (I remember when we texted back and forth quite a bit even though she was “at work and had work to do.” What changed? She doesn’t “need” me anymore.)

Otherwise, just nothing going on. Bought “Aquaman” the other day and we watched it on the big tv and liked it. Our date last Saturday was good; as usual. I do enjoy spending time with her.

Trying to get things done around the house but not having that much luck with these Wx change headaches. Tried getting up the 12ft ladder to find the joists to mount those light we got for SWMBO’s room, and got kind of woozy so quit doing that. Don’t want to fall at all but really don’t want to fall while home alone! Still need to turn off the electric to my room to get the new light in. Tomorrow. Probably.

Realized Why I Like Holidays

Tich04bOr, almost like Holidays. Those few and far between Holidays are about the only times that our dining table gets cleared. At all other times our table is piled high with whatever’s collected. (Or placed there by  she-who-will-remain-unnamed!) Ah well.

Not a whole lot going on the past few days. Hard to believe it’s Thursday already. Haven’t really been out of the house (well, away from the house) much except for a Safeway run today for some coffee and distilled water. Stopped by the Faith In Action store and donated a bag of clothes and stuff, and took a look around. They’re way too spendy for a thrift store.

Glass company came by last Monday and replaced SWMBO’s (car) windshield. Nice young fellow and he had it done in just over an hour. Said not to slam the doors for about 6 days (or the new windshield might pop out.) Passed that on to SWMBO.

Seeing a LOT of things I could do with a digger when I walk around the property! Or a tractor. And the Sun is starting to feel real good when we get outside. Already fallen asleep a couple of times out there. (In my chair, of course.) Time to start on the garden?

Shrike 500S. Getting To Be A Favorite

Renter got a bit upset when I told her I (and the Law) considered the MILA abandoned and that I had gone in and started moving her stuff to the living room for packing. She finally showed up yesterday and moved some of her stuff out. Took her half an hour to load her couch on her little trailer. I’d have gone down and volunteered to help (she is preggo) except for how shitty she treated me last time I asked if she needed help. If I want to get treated shitty I’d call my ex- or ask for “extras” at any fast food place.

SWMBO just let me know she missed her ferry and may need a ride from downtown if she manages to catch the “fast ferry.” (Would be damned silly, and suicidal, not to go pick her up if she needs a ride!)
