~ Nice Lotto Win ~
~ Cloudy Cool and Rainy ~

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

One Week of Decenber gone already, Year 2022 is ebbing out fast, Christmas and Birthday on the way
And looks like another dull dark Day out my Window, Cloudy and Cold out there
Well, warmer than expected, says 43 Degrees but only heading to a low High of 48
Then saying Rain Showers, well good that it isn't Freezing out there then

And another quiet Day ahead, it is really quiet most of the time now with Navru not here
I do like his visits but I didn't like the talking on the Internet, at least it wasn't most of the time though
Hard to believe he was here most every Weekday for the Past Year

On through a long online Morning and then off in the mild Cold Cloudy Day to the Minit Mart
Cashed in my last $50 Win and got my samples and headed back to win a $5, $10 and a gorgeous $100
Hey, got a little profit there for a change

~ Second $100 for the Month ~ Gimmee More! ~

Well of course I couldn't let well enough alone and headed back to the Price Chopper
Cashed in my Goodies and headed for Machine One to try agaim, got my load and headed back
This time scratched away through all 8 tickets and only won a dinky $10... Oh well...

That was enough for another inside Day, another early move to the TV to while out the rest of the Afternoon and Evening

~ Thursday ~ One more Day used Up ~

~ Nothing to Brag or Complain About ~
~ Cloudy and a bit Cold Again ~

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

Wednesday it is and not ready for another dull drab Day but that's what it looks like
38 Degrees and cloudy gray out there at 8 a.m. A bit warmer start but only heading to 49
Made it to a bit Higher on Tuesday, at least it says mostly Sunny for Today

Drifted through the Morning stuff then headed for the Price Chopper for you know what
Cashed in my last $20 Win, headed to Machine two for my daily choices and back to only win $10... Phoooey!

OK, gotta be a better winner than that, headed back to try again, cashed in my last dinky win
Got my choice of $45 More and then headed back to win back $50... Is that a win or not?

Well it gives me a handful of Ammo for tomorrow anyway... Then on to another quiet Afternoon
Maybe I should just call this catch up note my 'Morning Report' instead of Blog
Seems most every Day I just shut down at Noon... Well maybe 3 p.m. on River Park Days

~ Wednesday ~ Nap Time ~ See you Tomorrow ~



~ Tuesday, December 6, 2022 ~
~ All Alone ~ Shhhhhh ~
~ Cloudy and a bit Cooler fot the Day ~

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

~ Cloudy Cold Tuesday ~ All Alone ~

Well it says 35 Degrees and Cloudy at 9 a.m. and then Cloudy and only heading to 42 for the Day
And as usual, no plans for the Day and it will be another quiet one with Navru not here
That for me is good and not so good, I liked having him here, but not his Business talk online
And his arguments with his friends and relatives in Uzbekistan, but that wasn't all Day
I was glad that I could give him a place to start his new Job that he enjoyed

So, Cloudy and Cold out there, drab dull Weather Morning and where to for my Lottos?
Well I hit my Favorite Machine One at the Price Chopper Monday so how about the Service Counter?
Or maybe Machine Two, haven't hit it for a couple Days, well I'll see when I get there

And off into the Cloudy Cold, no Sun to warm up the Car, headed to the Price Chopper
Cashed in my $25 Win, used some spare change to buy a 'Show Me Cash' Ticket...
Then over to Machine Two to dump in $55... An extra $10 Ticket for a change... Felt an urge...
And then a pack of Cat Food, back to feed the Cat and work my Lottos and NUTZ! Only won a dinky $15

After that? Nothing much except the usual... I need another hobby I guess, but can't think of what?

~ Very Slow Morning ~
~ Sunny and a bit Warmer ~

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

Well now it's Noon already and just got off the Computer, some Internet catching up
And then some catching up with those River Park Videos, made a new Web Page for that collection
Not even checking the Weather til Noon, Sunny out there though and now says 47 Degrees

Well, needed some goodies, off to the Price Chopper, cashed in my Winner $25, hit Machine One for my dailys
Then some shopping, some of this and that and some good looking Chops on sale CHEEP! Wow!
Then back to scratch away and then only win my $25 back... I would have liked a bit more

Into the Afternoon already, and back on the Computer to play around with this and that
Then it was my late Lunch time and back to the TV for a News Catch up and that Lunch
After that time to roast up those nice looking Boneless Pork Chops, did that
Then set aside One for Dinner and cooled off the rest for the Fridge and Freezer

And what else for that super bizzy Day? back to the TV of course and on into the Evening
Then a call from Navru... Hadn't heard from him since his clean up Thursday Visit here
He said he was on the way from his new House, and then here he comes, sat for a short catch up
Then into my Office room to pack up his stuff he used in his Business online
And several things I had provided for that but wasn't using myself and didn't need
Then it was maybe see you later and off he went to his new Business (home) location

And back to the TV for my usual finish up for the busier than I thought it would be Day

~ Monday ~ Good Start to the Week ~

~ Inside and Boring Day ~
~ COLD Morning Again! ~ Sunny Warmer Afternoon ~

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

And it is 27 Degrees out there at 9 a.m. this Sunny Sunday Morning...
But then heading to 45 and that doesn't sound all that bad, and says mostly Sunny

Checking online, my Vimeo Video limit had reset, so I uploaded the Number 1 Section of that Tree Statue Video
I wanted to have them in a 1-2-3 Order on my Vimeo Page so I uploaded them from last to First
Would have liked to have them all in one Video but it is an hour and a half and exceeds my Upload limit
And no one but me would want to sit and watch that for that long anyway

So, warmed up a little, sunny out there, took off for the Price Chopper, cashed in my $20 Win
Then over to Machine One, dumped it in and got my load and then a bucket of Ice Cream and headed Home
Scratch Scratch and dang! Only won back a $20 and a $5, that ain't gonna pay the Rent

And then on to the rest of the Day... It was try to find something to do, so it was a little of this and that
On through a long afternoon then an Idea to put the three Tree Statue Videos on a separate Web Page
And then put the link to that Page on my Home Page, just a bit tedious but on with that

~ Click for All those Trips to the River Park ~

Finished the new Page, shut down the Computer and on to the Evening of too much TV again

~ Sunday ~ An Easy Day ~

~ A Nothing start on the Weekend ~
~ COLD Morning ~ Cold all Day ~

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

Doggone where have I been! 11:30 a.m. and still on the Computer with this and too much of that
And Baby it's COLD outside! 26 Degrees out there now but Sunny and only heading to 37 they say... NUTZ!
So far just doing a load of Laundry and way too much Crosswords and idling around on the Internet
And some more chat with Sigi Wulle in Germany on Facebook chat settling World Problems

Time marched on... Headed for the Minit Mart in early Afternoon, cashed in my $25 Wins
Got all the $5 Tickets and one $10... Headed for Home to scratch, Sunny but Cold
And then, popped a Glucerna and scratched away and only got back a $5 and $15 Win... Oh well

~ Saturday ~ There will be a Better Day Tomorrow? ~

~ Nothing Interesting ~
~ Warmer ~ I Like It! ~

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

Friday and lookee there! It's 50 Degrees now at 10 a.m. and says partly Sunny and heading to 63
Well that's the kind of December Day I can go for, how about a few more weeks of that?

Celebrating Christmas early this Morning, Just saw one of my Christmas Videos being repeated on Facebook
So I clicked on it and took that Nature Sanctuary walk with Santa all over again, sure did cover that Event well

A very long Morning, finally took off for the Price Chopper around 11 a.m for you know what
Cashed in my last $25 Win, stuck it into Machine One and headed home to win my $25 Back

And then into another long and nothing going on Afternoon since the weather kept me away from the River
Nothing going on much at all now except Lottos and TV... and Computer casting
I don't remember that the Winter Days were so boring last Wnter... What did I do then I am not doing now?

Oh well, on with the rest of the Day... What's on TV?

~ Friday ~ Nice Warm Day anyway ~

~ New Month and Pay Day ~
~ Another Sunny COLD Morning ~ Cloudy bit Warmer Afternoon ~

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

And it is December, on the way to finishing up my 90th Year having Fun
Sun in my Window again off and on and not quite a cold as Wednesday, 37 Degrees at 10 a.m.
Then the Forecast says Sunny and heading to 50 Degrees, that sure sounds better

Idling around as usual with my Morning Internet running around not finding much
All quiet then until about 10:30 a.m. and here comes Navru, thought he said he was moving today
But he hooked up to his Online Site for a catchup, then started on his Phone talking to relatives
Talking in Uzbek and me not understanding a word of that, very irritating language... (to me)

So, again off to the Price Chopper with a $25 Win to cash, then dump in Machine Two
Got my load and headed back, scratch and scratch 7 Tickets with no Wins... then Whooopie! a $100 Beauty!

~ First $100 for the Month ~ Any more Coming? ~

So of course back to try again, and again hit Machine Two except for my Winner ticket
Then back to scratch off a $5, $10, $10, $25 and another $25... Whooopie again!

And then it was a cool Cloudy boring Afternoon, time for TV yet?
Yeah, gave up, set out a late lunch and headed for the News online... if any

And then just stuck on the TV until Bed Time...Ho Hum again and again

~ Thursday ~ Busy enuff considering the Weather ~



~ Wednesday, November 30, 2022 ~
~ Goodbye November ~
~ Sunny COLD Morning ~

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

And yeah Baby! It's still cold outside, 22 Degrees at a Sunny 9 a.m.
And the Forecast saying the 'High' will only be a COLD 37 Degrees on this Sunny Day
Well the only plan I have for this pre-Payday Day is one more trip for my daily dose of you know what

Another long 'On the Internet' Morning, I just about live there most of the Day now
My Mornings in my 'Office' here and there on the Internet until I give up and go get my Lottos
Then winding down the Afternoon, back online on the Computer in my Living Room watching TV on the Internet

Out to heat up a cup of Coffee in my Microwave, sneeked behind the Forest on my Table to get to it
Then back through the Jungle to head back to my Computer room

~ The Forest in my Kitchen ~

And so... 11 a.m. Sunny and still in the 20s... Off to the Price Chopper to donate $45 to the Cause
Got my maybes out of Machine One, headed back to only win back $15... YUCK!

On through the Day, Navru headed out early for some reason... then back with a big smile and says I got it
And what was it? He has been waiting for a reply on his request to buy a house and got an OK
So he says he will be moving shortly and leave it all in quiet in my Office Room

Then on into a long uneventful afternoon and another early TV Evening
Looks like some quiet Office Daya ahead now all alone, kinda how I like it
