WTH did you do today?


Recommended Posts

Placed bags all around the basement rafters. Has a minty smell and keeps mice packing. Cold season is on us so thought we would get ready. Then I sprayed Pine Sol mixed with water around the outside foundation.

What's with all the hostility? Can't you be a card-carrying liberal without constantly putting people down with your perceived moral superiority? I'm seriously interested. Because it's a pattern

I finally revised my "collage" family photo to include a Gretsch I bought a couple months ago, haha.  

I did this today. I'll call it light at the end of the tunnel. I'm not grimacing, my neck is just old.

Worked all day and the wife's away for a 3 day weekend.  

Life is good!

I'm taking care of a miniature poodle puppy and the place looks like the aftermath of an orgy: he's dragged her underwear all over the house and there's chewed on plastic water bottles and all kinds of junk all over the house.  Everybody has to have a hobby, I guess.

Hahaha, Been there mate.  Bandit was my last Doberman Pinscher and he was a Champion show dog. He used to eat all Deb's pannies and nylons on a daily bases. She would get so mad at him. He was a stud dog, He had puppies from California to Florida. So I used to tell her, PICK THEM UP, Then. if you don't want them eaten.  Like work would tell us, (Be aware of your surroundings.)

Woke up late, worked, fed snakes, worked some more, watched football through my eyelids, got bit by the puppy who was roughhousing.

Been over a year since my heart attack so finally getting my bloodwork done tomorrow.  I know they have me pumped full of too much thinner, still bleeding hours later from the dog bite.  Conked the little guy out by giving him some turkey, that settled him down.

Wife is back from all gurlz weekend.  She fainted in a restaurant so something is not good.

Isn't feeding a puppy turkey after he bites you sort of ...  positively re-enforcing a negative?   Unless, you yelled at him, and waited 5 minutes!       Wife may have had too much mask and not enough oxygen.  If you live in a state that requires you to wear a mask In Between Bites - she may have been doubly affected.  Chewing and swallowing without breathing, then a mask.   Hope she's OK.    Today we're getting one of those side by side remote control beds that you can raise and lower, but are 2 twins that fit (I hope) inside an existing King size bed frame.  Yesterday, the mattresses were delivered and are airing out.   Our current mattress is like a well-worn catchers mitt.  I think they intentionally make them now so they don't last as long.

Round 1 of bagging and tagging leaves this weekend. Hate doing this every season, but when you have a chunk of land, have to do it. Lots of trees on my lot. Well that’s the joy of home ownership on some acres of land... 30 bags so far. Expecting about doing 60 bags this year no doubt.

Sorry to hear that Steve. Hope she's better. That happened to mine decades back, I caught her and carried her to a bench till she woke up.  She dieted to a weight too low for her.

Snow was all melted today so I cleaned the mess in the back yard.   Deb bought herself a Christmas gift for a $100.00 and insists I come up with a gift I want for around the same price give or take a few bucks. I've been thinking for weeks. So I may have found a pedal.  It's a Zoom G1X four looper effects for $109.00  Anyone ever have this before? I really didn't know what else to try?

Cherry had lunch with her girlfriends, and she brought me home a takeaway meal in 4 boxes. Steak Pie / Potatoes / Peas / Gravy. Went down nice with a glass of Rioja.

Worked, fed some snakes, laughed about how trying to move a 12' boa constrictor that'a wrapped around a heat lamp atop a cage by yourself does NOT work AT ALL!

Move the head, the tail digs in, move the tail, the head digs in, move the middle and both the head and the tail dig in.  Okay, stay where you are, see if I care...

Mystery Guitar is still MIA in Newark, NJ and I dug out the Lucille.  BB King really had great taste in guitars and got Gibson to make a stellar model for him.  Little tweak of the truss rod and it's back in business.

I have prescription with photo grey on my everyday glasses and 2 sets of prescription sunglasses. One pair for my car and one for her car.  Hmm, Have 2 pairs of deep snow boots. I spent all day checking into pedals. We ordered the Zoom G3Xn pedal from Amazon.  I liked that it had a setting for drum beats. Thought i'd give that a go plus the effects.  Price went over a bit but she didn't care. I've had $200. in cash in my jewelry box for the last 2 years, I'll give her that.

Lets know how the Zoom checks out. I have a Beat Buddy for drums, though its been gathering dust for a while.

Started putting the gynormous thing that is part of what turns a model in the wind tunnel. Even though I work at a place that has a hand in sending people to outer space, this week I kid you not I could not find a #10 lock washer anywhere in our tool room.
