~ Mostly Inside Day ~
~ Sun to Start ~ T-Storm to Finish ~

~ River Race on the Wide Missouri ~

Lotsa Internet Cruising first thing again today, I should get this Blog updated first
Already 7:30 a.m. and time flies when yer having fun, like messaging Sigi Wulle in Germany
Friday already and again no plans for the Day, and still going to be a HOT one? Let's see
Says Sunny and 77 Degrees now, then Rain Showers and climbing to 94... Well my A.C is working now
And it said Rain Showers on Thursday too but we didn't get any, they say after Noon today

OK, why that Photo up on top? I saw a post on Facebook by Churchill Clark, of 'Lewis and Clark' fame
Coming to Kansas City to carve a new Canoe for a Missouri River Race I never heard of
Here's his post: "Chopping TOMORROW (6/12/21) at Blue River Forest Experience, in Overland Park, Kansas!"
Be fun to head over to check it out if I knew when and how to get there

In and out of the Shower and then headed down to the Fast Stop, Hola Gringo and Dubra Utra
A lot of chat and then a handful of Tickets and back home to scratch off $20 in Wins
When did Lady Luck desert me, haven't won anything great since Monday...

On the way back had to stop for another Photo of those Stair Lilies, more Blooms
A week or so of gorgeous Blooms and they go away for another Year

~ More Blooms on the Stair Lilies ~

And lookee there in the Kitchen, we have a Pepper on the Plant in the Pot
OK Plant in the other Pot get with the Program and let's see another Pepper

~ A Pepper in the Pot ~

Drifting on to TV time, quiet until the Wind started howling, then quieted down some before the Storm Later

Then late Afternoon and the wind started blowing again really hard, later T-Boomers and lots of Rain
I was thinking earlier I needed to water out front but Mother Nature handled that for me

Then the storm quieted down and I finished the Day as usual

~ Friday ~ Bright and Dark ~ Dry and Wet ~



~ Thursday June 10, 2021 ~
~ Fixed the A/C ~
~ Hot Weather ~ Quiet Day ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Lots more Blooms on the Lilys ~ More to Come

Well now, a late start on Today's Blog, 10:45 a.m. and I've already been to the Fast Stop
And got my loser Lottos, only won $15 for the trip and effort and now what?
Well get this update started and then head for the Price Chopper, need some goodies again

So what for the early Morning? Had a Video and some Photos to edit, did my Internnet runaround as usual
Then a Stair Lily Photo on the way out... Did that and then off to seek my Fortune...
And I didn't find that at the Fast Stop as I said, so then off to the Price Chopper

And got my goodies and headed back to unload and those big bottles of Juice are getting heavier every day
Then, just try to find something to do... Puttering around again on the Computer
And I got an Email saying the Repair Crew would stop by for my A/C Service Call sometime today
And wasn't long until I saw the truck pull up outside my Window, and I beat them to the Door
Buenos Dias, two Mexican guys to do the work, came in to turn on the AC, then back outside
Figured they were going to add some Gas to the Machine to fix it, in a short time they were back in
Checked the A/C, it was cooling then, yep, they added Freon... So then... Muchas Gracias and Hasta luego

And nothing much going on the rest of the Day, Oh woe... So boring...

~ Thursday ~ Quiet not much action Day ~



~ Wednesday June 9, 2021 ~
~ Very Warm River Visit ~ No One There ~
~ Hey! It got Hot! ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Just 100 Steps from There ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ To start the long Trail walk from Here ~

The Day after the Day... Woke up with my Eye feeling fine and dry, not like all Tuesday afternoon
Now working my Blog a bit of irritation again and a bit of extra moisture, but it all goes away later
And nothing planned for this Day except try to keep busy at something, like my first look at the Garden
That little climbing Vine looks like it is giving up, fell off the Snake Plant and the now leaves drying up

And a peek out on the Window Cam and looks mice so far... Sunny Morning... What's the Forecast?
Ha! Great at the moment... Says 73 Degrees and Sunny... But then 91 later and light Rain
Well they said light Rain yesterday and we didn't get any... but that 91 Temp doesn't sound great

Knock Knock Knock... Who's there? The Maintenance Man from Celtic... I asked for A/C help on Tuesday afternoon
And here he is today, but when I told him the problem he said there were about 20 requests ahead of me
Well it hasn't been ovebearingly hot inside yet so hope they get to it before the heat gets to me

Then time to get off the Internet and get going down the road, off to the Fast Stop
And there was Navru working a his new Puzzle Toy, a 'Rubik's Cube'... Wanted to show me how he works it
Like it was something new... Well it was first introduced in 1974 and I had one back then
The one he has is a 3 X 3... And the one they sold in 1974 was a 4 X 4 and a bit harder to work
He had read a 'formula' on how to work it, I don't remember if I could work it or not

~ Rubik's Cube 3 X 3 ~

So he played with that as we talked and as he handled the customers as they came and left
Finally cashed in my $40 Wn, bought my load and headed home to scratch and only found ONE $5 Winner

And then what? No ideas, nothing to do, and Baby it's hoT out there! Yhink we could cool off down on the River?
Tooled on downtown, not near as many there as the last Visit but that was on a weekend wasn't it?
Then all the way down to the Boat Ramp in Platte Park and just a few Cars there, one empty Boat trailer
So I had a seat and enjoyed the view a while, a very few people jogging by, no Boats in the River

Then headed back up to the Shelter at the entrance, ony one couple there, I sat and watched for action and very little
But the Clouds overhead were plentiful and gorgeous so I got a sweeping Video of that, wanna see?

Then I headed back to finish out a pretty much nothing day except for good Weather but a bit too hot for me
The usual evening and off to bed with more dreams than usual...

~ Wednesday ~ Quiet Summer Day ~ Ho Hum ~



~ Tuesday June 8, 2021 ~
~ Retina Poke Day ~
~ Not much going On ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Little Vine dropped off the Snake Plant ~

OK It's Tuesday and I had a fairly good night after that last ordeal... Now what?
Woke up thinking I had an easy Day ahead, poured my Juice, put the Coffee on
Then marked my Calendar and Oh Woe! Had forgtten that I had another Eye Poke appointment for the Day
And that's at 10:45 a.m. Have a little time to wake up and clean up before heading out
I still have a bit of soreness in my Throat and then will have some Eye irritation for the rest of the Day
Not severe but feels like something stuck in my Eye... Oh well...

So what kind of Weather do we have for that ride to Riverside? Looks the same as Monday
Saya 69 Degrees and Sunny now, then light Rain and heading to 86... Maybe like Monday the Rain won't show up
So, on to my Internet Games and cruising for now...

On to Crossword and finished that, then to the Jumble and it's still missing
I wait for the Ad to clear and then a blank Page... Oh well, I can do without it
So onto the Day and what's next? Beats me... until the Appointment

OK, out of the Shower and still time to wait, where to? Off to the Fast Stop
And what's up? Navru not there again, Oh well, gimmee some Winners, cashed in my $40 Win
Then back home to win a $5. $15 and $15 Win, that sure won't pay the Rent

Then a peek at the Kitchen Garden, looks like that little climbing Vine is giving up
Checked the Pot and it was kind of dry, watered it, now see what happens

So 'Time Marches On' Off to Retina assocciates At 10:15 a.m. Got tter at 10:35...
A short wait and then in for the Vision Check, then the inner Eys Photos check
Then the long wait for the Eye Poke, finally called for that, The Tec put something in my eye
Whatever it is, then dropped some liquid on it and then it started to sting a bit
Then another long wait for the Doctor, in with his Drops, then the Poke and all done
Got my Appointment in Six Weeks and headed out for the Red X in Riverside

Traded in my Morning $35 Win, got more, headed on Home, with that blsck blob in my eye
And some irritation as usual, that lasts most all day as well as that black blob

Then back Home, unloaded and worked my Lottos for a $5, $5, $5. $5 and $20 Win
Not much happening after that, the Eye was irritated and watering most all afternoon
Just tried to watch TV to get trhough the rest of the tedious Day...

~ Tuesday ~ Not much of a Fun Day ~



~ Monday June 7, 2021 ~
~ Hospital GI Lab Visit ~
~ Another Lotto Win ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Monday Monday... And what's for today? They said they would call me at 8 a.m. about my Appointment
The Hospital visit is set for 12:30 p.m. if they say OK, waiting for my Insurance confirmation
And then what if they do not approve it? I already called my Hospital Plan and they say it is covered

This Morning I woke up just before 4 a.m. Not sleepy so I got up early, going to be a long Day
And I'm following their rules for the Appointment, nothing to eat and very little to drink
Will have plenty of time to wait after their Call, if they do call and approve

So... What's the Weather for this questionable Day? Says 67 Degrees now and Clear
Then heading to 85 with light Rain... Do we need any more Rain? Well it missed us yesterday
Let's see if they got it right for Today, still dry out there now

Then a bit of luck on my Gas Cap, went out front in the cool and tried it, it came right off
So I headed out to the Minit Mart and filled my Tank, then headed next door to the Price Chopper
Cashed in my last $85 Win, got $40 more and headed back to win $25, Oh well

Then a phone call from Pat at 7:55 a.m. 'Is the party still on?' Nope, they said they would call at 8 a.m.
She hung up and then the Phone Rang again, Procedure approved and appointment is at 1:15 p.m. OK, see ya
Then called Pat back to advise and she will be here to pick me up about Noon-Thirty... Bueno!

And then what? A couple Hours to go, headed back to the Price Chopper to trade again
Then back again, this time to lose most but did win a nice $40... That's the kind I like

~ One More Nice $40 Win for June ~

And then a long wait, finally Pat showed up at noon-Thirty with a big bag of Cookies
Then we loaded up and headed South, parked in the Pavilion Garage and took the elevator to the 7th Floor
Been there and done that many times, the GI Lab, checked in and then a short Wait

Then 'Donald?' and the Nurse led me to the prep Room, Then some tests, lots of questions, then the wait
And off to the Treatment Room, questions, explanations, then went to sleep, some dreams and woke up
The report... Dilated the Esophagus some, took some Biopsies, some after treatment instruction
Pat took off to get the truck, the Nurse wheeled me down to the entrance, into the truck and headed home

Then, unloaded, Pat came in to chat and watch my Videos, enough of that and headed up the hill about 5 p.m.
Then it was TV time, had some Juice, had a Sandwich and then finished my TV Evening

~ Monday ~ Another Hospital Day ~



~ Sunday June 6, 2021 ~
~ Just Cruising at Home ~
~ Saying Rain ~ But Didn't ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Stair Lilies beginning to Bust Out ~

Sunday again, had a pretty good day Saturday but seems they just can't it get the way I like it
Always for me a bit too hot or too cold, rarely just the way I like it, Saturday a bit too hot
So what's for today? Says 68 and Cloudy out there at 7 a.m. Then Rain and heading to 85
The 85 sounds bearable but I've had more rainy Days this Spring than I care for

A good Lotto Day on Saturday, Still have $100 Winner Cash and $85 in Winning Tickets from yesterday
So where to today? I'm thinking the Service Counter at the Price Chopper
Headed there, cashed in my $85 worth of Winner Tickers, bought $50 more and headed home
First Tcket, scratched off a $5 Winner and then that was all! Mein Gott! Now I'm gonna cry

Well I needed some Gas and I had lost some Keys, so off again to the Minit Mart for Gas and Lottos
At the Minit Mart, stopped at the Gas Pump and now what? Couldn't get the Gas Cap off! RATZ!
So went in and got my Lottos anyway and headed home to scratch off only a $15 Win
Did my Lucky Penny Luck run out already? Well still had some Winner Money so back to the Fast Stop
Got another Load and back again, scratch scratch and scratch a $10, $10, $10, $15 and $40, an $85 Win
So for the Day, not enough loss to cry about, only $45

~ Another Nice Win for June ~

And another look at those Stair Lilies, a few more Blossoms and a lot more on the way
Let's check them again Tomorrow

~ More Blooms on the Stair Lilies ~

And the Knock Out Roses, a few more Today and how many more to Come?
Are they in a race with the Stair Lilies?

~ And a few more Blooms on the Knock Out Rose ~

And that was about it for another nice Day...We didn't get the Rain they suggested
Just some passing Clouds and plenty of Sun in between and a bit on the too warm side out there

So, tomorrow? Hospital Visit or not? We shall see

~ Sunday ~ More Sun than Clouds ~



~ Saturday June 5, 2021 ~
~ Another Lucky Lotto Day ~
~ Another River Video ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Tiny Vine climbing the Snake Plant ~

Not happy this morning thinking about that GI Lab appointment Monday, if or no?
They said they would call me about 8 a.m. Monday if they had approval yet
Every other Medical place I have visited haa had no problen with my new Provider, what's theirs?

So it's another Weekend again and I have no plans as yet, if any... Do we have good Weather?
Yes, looks good so far... 68 Degrees out there now at 7 a.m. Then Sunny and heading to 88
That might just be a ittle too warm for my taste, seems to me now it's always too cold or too hot

Time for another check on that timy Vine that climbed out of the Impatiens Flower Pot
It has climbed over 4 feet vertically and 2 feet sideways now and it is almost all the way up the Snake Plant
And all those Vines from the Peperomia plant, still trying to go somewhere and no place to go
Looks like they are reaching out for the Kitchen Ceiling Light now

~ Peperomia Vines still Reaching ~

And... About 10 a.m. headed down to the Fast Stop, cashed in my last $15 Win
Got my selection and headed out to find a Lucky Penny on the ground beside my Car
Put that in my Pocket and headed up the Hill to the Price Chopper for some Glucerna
And... Didn't buy a 'Crossword' at the Fast stop so I bought Two of them at the Price Chopper
They had Two different ones in the same Machine, so got one of each
Back at el Ranchito I worked the Fast Stop Tickets for Two $15 Wins, not too shabby
Then the Crossowrds, HAH! First one scrathed off for a $100 Win! The Second one a $15 Win
So lessee, that makes a very nice $145 Win to start the Day

~ I do Like this Kind of Lotto Win! ~

Back to the Price Chopper to cash in that $145 Win, then over to Machine Two to try again
Got my Tickets and headed back, Scratch scratch... Won a $15, $20, $25 and another $25
That's a total of $85 ain't it? Lessee... Is $230 enough of a win for one Day?
Yeah that Penny was lucky, let's not risk any more losses for Today

And then what? 1 p.m. Sunny and warm, let's go down to the River again
Headed to my Bench, then down the Trail to the same place last time, the pond
Was kinda tired when I got there, a bit more when I got back, counted the paces on the way
Took me 400 steps each way, how far is that? Well enuff to get me tired for now

Nothing going on at the Boat Ramp then so I headed back to the Shelter at the Entrance
Just hung out there enjoing the scenery and the Weather and then saw a trailer of Kayaks roll by

~ Instructions before the River Trip ~

So I tooled back there and had a seat on my Bench while they unloaded and got ready
Then the Kayakers showed up, loaded them there big Boats and took off down the River
With me of course getting some Video again, see what that looks like this time

Back home at 3 p.m. to unload and rest up on the TV, sip sip and catch up with the News
Then back in my 'Office' to edit, render and upload that new Video to Vimeo
Back to the TV to watch the Video then finish the Day as usual

~ Saturday ~ Bizzy Fun Day ~



~ Friday June 4, 2021 ~
~ What? Another River Video? ~
~ Good Weather Day ~ Yes Ma'am! ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Any Day Now ~ Tomorrow Maybe? ~

Looks like it's Friday, end of the Working Week, whatever that is, I don't work, I just play
And a nice Weather Day on Thursday, What's for today? Sunny out there now and 66 Degrees
Then my Weather Report says mostly Sunny and heading to 87... Summertime!

OK, worked my Crossword but again the Jumble is missing, que te pasa? Oh well, on to the Day
And what's for today? I do have some River Video to edit whenever, a trip for Lottos and then what?
So now what was that Video about? Started on that, lots of Video on different Days to add
But now it's like just on one trip, cheating a bit? Well don't do a lot of some River trips
And I finished the Edit, Render and Upload for that River Video and here it is

And then, my Video upload quota had reset so I uploaded the Month of May Video
How many more will I do this Year? Well we shall see, shall we not?

~ My Month of May ~

Then time to head out for Lottos again, headed to the Fast Stop, Navru was missing
But I got a handful Of Tickets and headed home to again only scratch off a $15 Win... NUTZ

On through a very warm sunny Day, first in a long time, not finding much to do
Then I got a call from the NKCH GI Lab people saying they could not get approval from my Insurer
And were cancelling my Appointment for the present... HUH? So I called United Health Care
They said the Procedure was covered, I called the Lab people back and they said they were working on it
So I won't know if I have that appointmnent until Monday Morning

Then I just coasted through the rest of the Day, Ho Hum as usual

~ Friday ~ More Nice Weather ~



~ Thursday June 3, 2021 ~
~ SS Pay Day ~ And Hospital Billing Day ~
~ Sunny and Warmer ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Roses and Bushes I planted Next Door ~

Another Pay Day... Good... I need it to offset that big Car repair Bill to make my Bank balance look good
But it is still bigger than usual anyway with that Stimuus Payment still sitting in there
And the loss for that Car repair was offset by one of those $1,000 Lotto Tickets I won
I have about used up that second $1000 Lotto Win with buying more Tickets than usual last Month

Well the Weather was warmer on Wednesday and the Rain they fcrecast didn't show up
What are they predicting for us Today? Says 58 Degrees now, then partly Sunny and headed to 82
Are we going to get a touch of Summer Weather? We shall see (and feel)

On to my Puzzles and doggone those stupid words they are now using on my Crossword
Who ever heard of them anyway? Maybe I should send them my Dictionary...
And the Jumble has been missing for Two Days now

And what was wrong with my Mercedes? Checked on the Invoice for the part... and...
Well wondering what a 'Mass Air Flow Sensor' is, I looked it up online, never heard of that
Now I know, and saw that the cause of failure was usually age, well mine was OLD!
And on my bill, the charge for labor was almost as much as the Parts... Oh well, the Lotto paid for it

Well now more good money news... NOT! I have am EGD Endoscopy scheduled for next week
Just got a call from then for information and billing! They want $295 NOW!
I guess my new Medicare plan isn't so good after all, I have to pay Co-Pays to Specialists
And now some stuff at the Hospital is not covered! Like this next Visit
I guess I will have to stop having troubles that send me to the Doctor

Then a load of wash in the Machine and off to the Fast Stop to win a Fortune, bad choice
Navru wasn't there, got my Supply from the sub and headed back to only win $5

And then on to the Day, where to? saw Chris out front, dropped down to greet the Day
Some chat, then got the Idea of another River trip so hasta la vista and headed out
I wanted to try some walking, just too much sitting lately and not enough action on foot

~ End of my workout Hike for Thursday ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Looking back to my Bench ~

Down to my favorite Bench to start, got some sweeping Video to show my proposed trip
And then headed out to cover the trail on foot, getting some Video here and then along the way
Then saw a girl digging on the Bank, had to check that out and got more Video

Then in the Car and headed back to the Park entrance to take a seat and check what was going on there
A couple big Nets now across the road and people running back and forth there
And then had a seat on the bench to rest up and a Hello to a guy at the next bench
A friendly guy from Korea, we had some chat and answered his questions and showed him some Videos
He asked for my Web Site, had a nice chat, forgot to get a Photo... Then time to head back

Then played with the new Video some, and then finished out the Day as usual
I did get in a lot of walking and ready for a nice long rest

~ Thursday ~ Nice Weather ~ Some Fun at the River ~



~ Wednesday June 2, 2021 ~
~ On the Road Again ~
~ Some Sun to Start ~ Then Sun to Finish ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Where to Now? ~ And why the Climb? ~

Here we go again, up but not at 'em with no Car to go waste Money on Lottos... Boo Hoo
Just have to find something to keep busy while I wait for their call to come and get it
And Pat and Navru are at Work today so how am I going to get there?

Will the Weather be any better today? Didn't watch the report last night on TV
This Morning it says 55 Degrees and Sunny now, but I don't see any Sun out there
Then says light Rain and heading to 76, I don't like the Rain but the 76 sounds good

A peek at the Kitchen Gardens again and that little climbing stem is at the top shelf
Why would a succulent Plant like that have a climbing stem anyway?

And another look at all those climbing Peperomia Vines... Five climbing and more trying
And now too, no place for them to climb any higher, so? Just lay down on the top shelf?

~ Kitchen Plants on the First of June ~

On to the Day, Email, Puzzles and Internet runaround and then on to my June Video
Added some Video, edited and added some Photos, now have a good start on this Month
Still waiting for my upload quota to reset so I can upload my Month of May Video

Out front to check the Garden in bright Sunshine, what a strange sight! No Rain!
Got a Photo of new blooms on a 'Knock Out' Rose Plant with the Cat and other plants

~ Marigolds ~ Coleus ~ Tomatoes ~ Morning Glories ~ Roses ~ Canna ~

Then got a call from the Repair Shop, had installed the Part they ordered, whatever it is
But then also needed a Fan Belt and Alternator and the Bill would be $1,066... Ouch!
Should be ready this evening and they would call me

And bored waiting for my Car and Lottos, time for a TV catch up and a sip of Juice
And then the Call from the Repair Shop again, repairs done and ready, so how do I get there?
Called Navru about 3 p.m. You off work yet?... Nope but will be soon... Can ya take me to get my Car?
Sure, when? I said any time but they close at 5 p.m. and so... I waited, he showed up at 4:30

Down the Hill to the Shop, Muchas Gracias, he headed off and I headed in to drop $1,066.19 on the Counter
Gave me the Key, around back to get the Mercedes and then off and up the Hill to the Price Chopper
Traded in my Winners, got a load of new ones then got a load of stuff I was out of and headed Home

Unloaded my loot, set out Dinner for later, then worked my Lottos for only a $5 Win... NUTZ!
Then it was TV and Dinner and finish up the Day and my Car is running happiy again

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Where's my Car? ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Oh! It's in There ~

Here we go again... Is June 'Bustin out all Over'? Well not yet, hoping the Weather will get better
My front Garden plants are running behind because of the cloudy cool rainy Weather so far
Waiting to see what some more Sun and warmth will do... if and when we get some

What are we going to get Today? That dancing idiot on Channel 4 last night said maybe better
So today it is 60 Degrees and Cloudy at 7 a.m. and says a high of 73 but mostly Cloudy
Not quite what I am waiting for yet but maybe on the way

And... 8 a.m. Time to head down to the Auto Repair to see if they can fix the Mercedes...
Got there with no problem and gave my complaint and then headed for home...
I had seen Navru's car in front of his place on the way out, so I gave him a call for a ride
He had left after I went by but he answered and said he was at the University just behind the Car shop
And he was on the way home... AHA! Told him where I was, he headed my way and gave me a ride Home
Talk about good luck... I hope I fare as well with what they find wrong on the Mercedes

Then... 10 a.m. a call from the Car Shop, ordering a part, repair cost will be about $600
Such good news! Oh well, I do have some of that Winner Lotto money left in the Bank

OK... Nothing to do while waiting for my Car, how long is that gonna be with no Lottos?
Well the end of May so I started on the last edit and render of my Month of May Video
And now it's ready to upload but would exceed my upload limit, been busy uploading this Week...
So when that limit renews, I'll upload that for all (all?) to enjoy... (as I do making them)

And then another Idea, start on my Month of June Video, back out front to take some new Video
To see how the Plants and Flowers are doing so far, as I said, a bit behind expectations
Did that end to end and then back in to add the Video to my Video Edit Program, and keep busy a while

And 4 p.m. and the sun came out about an hour ago but I was in here working on my Video
And with a couple songs and Two Videos added I have a pretty good stsrt, now to start adding the Photos

That was all for the Day, then the usual... an extra Movie and stayed up iuntil 10 p.m. Wow!

~ Memorial Day Morning ~

Holiday time again and what are we going to do? Well, just kick back and try to enjoy the Day
My BBQ is ready (already)... With my Car problem I won't be going to the Parade or Carnival
So I will just try to find something interesting to do at Home, just like most every Day

And 8 a.m. and Puzzles done... am I ready for my Weather report? I think the guy said Cloudy
I hope not Rain... Well says 60 now and Rain showers, then up to 64 and Rain... Phooooey!

Showers? Yeah just had mine and now what? I would like to go get some Lottos, have some to trade
But with that Car problem it would be better not to take the chance (and save some Money)
Well I could try to hike up there but it is dripping out there and not very warm either
So a long Day ahead, what's there to do anyway?

Well not much for sure, thought about trying the Car to go get Lottos but not worth the gamble
Could lose (as usual) more Money that I won and the Car might not make it there and back
So some early TV, then went to the Casino (Online) They give you a Bonus to start and it's possible to win real Money
Have to make a deposit to play, I made the Minimum of $25, they gave me a Bonus to start and away we went
So I played a while, just about like at the Casino, then had enough and I quit with a $100 Bonus still active
I don't know just how this thing works yet but something to relieve some boredom now and then maybe

And on through most of boring nothing doing Day, just on the Imternet, the TV wind down
Then some of that Smoked Pork and Tater Salad and that was all of Monday

~ Monday ~ Just another Rainy Day ~
