Yeah! First thing Saturday saw my Checks were in the Bank and waiting...
And I ended the Month with more money in the Bank than usual and ain't that nice!
So what kind of Weather we having to celebrate? Oh.. GREAT! Another Spring Day in August!
60 Degrees at 7:30 a.m. says Sunny and heading to only 77, now is that D.N.P. or what!
Now, all my Comp stuff done except my Puzzles, a cup of Coffee and I'll finish those
And all done at 8 ayem, now what? Well how about that 'Outback' Video? 'Let's get started here'
Photos all edited, a couple short Videos to add... Next.. start on that Timeline... away we go
Hey Hey... All the Way! It took a little doing but I had my Video finished and rendering by 10;10 a.m.
How about that... And it may be a bit tedious to watch but I like it and it gave me something to do
Now what other forgotten subject can I dig up to make another one, I'm on a roll now!
I have made TWELVE new boring Vieos... All about ME... In the last Two Weeks! How about that?
Got my Lottos, my Glucerna and then some good looking Chicken Thighs on a nice sale
Back at the Ranch, headed in but stopped for a Photo of the Coleus, looking good for late Summer
Then checked the Chicken about 5 p.m. What's the Problem? Temp only 190 or so
Needs to be about 220 to 250 Degrees to smoke right, think the burner might need to be cleaned out
Put another hunk of Hickory on the Fire and back in to TV time
Well now, another Bizzy Morning, 8:45 a.m. and added another Video... The latest I made for Navru
Then Uploaded and then made a DVD of it for Him, then looked online for a Laptop he asked for
I'll tell him what I found on Amazon when I give him his DVD this Morning
Well it looked kinda wet but quiet when I checked on the Window Cam this Morning
Forecast says Cloudy and T-Storms, Temp at 8 a.m. 65 Degrees and heading to only 74
So, don't look like we gonna get sunburned today at all
Still watching and waiting for those Trumnpet Vines to climb in the Kitchen
They are getting taller and lean on the string for support but not grabbing on like vines
Oh well, just another experiment anyway,
Then I headed Home, worked my Lottos for a dinky $5 Win, made Navru a DVD
Headed back for more Tries, he was wide awake... gave him the DVD, Thank You
Got my new Lottos and headed back to try again and PHOOOEY!, only $10 in Wins this time...
So then what? All caught up and nowhere to go... Another Video maybe? Of what?
Well, looking through my Photo files I found a whole bunch of cleaning out the 'Outback'
Not a very interesting subject (except to me) But lots of work done back there, worth a try
And I started Editing those 56 Photos, and kept at it, tedious but mesmerizing
BTW What does mesmerizing mean, I'll have to look it up sometime
Well I kept at it the rest of the Afternoonm finished p about 4 p.m. plus
So then some sips and snacks and TV until around 5:30 p.m. Just gorgoeus out front
The Storms had faded away early and the sun was beaming down and still nice and cool and breezy
I saw the Neighbors out front waving at me so I trotted down there again to chat
And a lot of chat about this, that and the other and maybe too much, don't want to bore them
Anyway kept on until around 6 p.m. or later, then see ya and headed Home
And then what? Need I say, the same old routine. TV, Dinner and see ya tomorrow
Thursday already... And Joe said the weather is due to change... After several PERFECT Days!
But doesn't look so bad to me this Morning, 68 Degrees at 7:30 a.m. and heading to 89, a bit warmer
And might feel a bit too warm under those sunny Skies but sure doesn't sound so bad to me
So two days til Pay Day for me but still in good money shape, even better with those Wins on Wednesday
I have enough of yeaterday's winnings in my Pocket to buy all my Tickets for the next Two days
And I just might win a couple more nice ones
So, Morning Computer stuff done I was thinking... Any more Video possibles?
So I checked around in my Photo Files, HEY! Did I do one of my Corpus Christi Trips?
Maybe some of the Photos are in my South Padre Island Video, but no Corpus Video...so
I started on that, then found there were Photos from three different Trips
Two with the same Two guys and one with just my friend Kyle... So I nade one with his Photos
Set that to upload and then headed out for Lottos again, first the Fast Stop, Dubra Dien Navru
Traded in my lost Wins of $35, headed back and won $35 again, no profit, but better, no loss
And then my new Video was ready so I tok time to watch in on my TV, came out nicely
Wednesday... Let's do it again! Great weather ahead, looks just about like Tuesday
A cool 64 Degrees at 8 ayem, heading to a comfortable 83 Degrees on another Sunny Day
And again, time flew by, what did I do fron 8 a.m. until 11 a.m. to make time move so fast?
Oh, yeah I had to finish up all that I didn't write on Tuesday's Blog, then work my Puzzles
Well a load of Whites in the Washer, then a Shower, Shampoo and Shave and what else?
So now at 11:05 a.m. Time to head out into that cool and Sunny Day to the Price Chopper, yessir!
Backing out the Drive I saw the Neighbors out front again, tooled on down there
Had some chat until Chris' Ride ahowed up, he took off and I headed to the Price Chopper
Traded in $15 worth of Winners, bought $35 more, got some Juice, Nuts and Candy
Headed back in to unload and scratch and won $35... Even up for the first Try
Then headed back to cash in my Winners, headed to machine Two to get $35 more tries
Back this time to scratch Two $5 Wins and one for $50... very nice, second big'un for the Month
Had a couple bags of trash to take out, so dumped those and took a detour on the way back
Trotted out back to check those Tomato Plants I transferred from a Pot earlier
Weren't doing much at first and still only just hanging on, had some tiny Tomatoes showing
Well they weren't doing anything in that crowded Pot so not much expected out where they are now
And that was allshe wrote on Wednesday and Good Night Irene... Good Night!
Looks like it gonna be a nice cool Day on Tuesday starting at 68 Degrees at 9 a.m.
And says Sunny and heading to only 78... Welcome to a nice spring Day!
OOOPS! That is all I wrote on Tuesday Morning, did I fall asleep ot what?
Now I am back on the Computer at 7:30 a.m. Wednesday and need to catch up on all Day Tuesday
What did I do all Day anyway, see what I can remember
Well I was finishing up and posting my latest Video so that took some time Wednesday Morning
I finally finished editing all those Photos, adding them to the Timeline
Trying to add a cute Intro and Finale and finally got it upoaded before I headed out for Lottos
So here it is for your and my displeasure gor my excellent try at anther Video... Hoo Boy!
Then it was just kind of Idling through the rest of another just gorgeous 'Spring' Day
Late in the Afternoon I picked three nice little Tomatoes, what to do with them
So, then TV Time, watched a couple hours, then a bowl of that to finish up the Evening
Hey pretty good stuff, and several Bowls to store and freeze for later
And I now think that was just about it for another nice Day
What for another Monday, first thing go see the Doctor... Wonder if it's Doctor Tsu again?
My appointment is at the same location as his Office was when I checked for my gut pain problem
Would hope that it is for a different solution than it was the last time I visited there
And what kind of weather do we have for the trip? Oh... a cool start at 67 Degrees, Cloudy and heading to 84
Have to head out about 8:30 a.m. so time to jump in the Shower and get ready to scoot
And that done... 8:25 a.m. Heading out into the cool and cloudy for my Appointment
And making good time until I hit a detour on a Road they have been working on for a YEAR!
But I wound my way around an extra mile or so and still made it to the Doc on time
Checked in, a short wait and then Nurse did her thing, then came this young Doctor
He said that Doctor Tsu was no longer with them, ran off to sunny California
Then he got down to Business, asking this and that and checking my Medical History
From what he checked and from my answers to his Questions, he didn't think anything serious was happening
He was going to follow up on the CT Scan I had earlier and then schedule another appointment in 8 Weeks
Then it was dark and dripping when I walked out the Door, raining when I got in the Car
And got dark and Rainy and T-Boomy the rest of the way back to Parkville
Stopped at the Price Chopper on the way back, hit the ATM and got my Lottos
Back in the Pouring Rain and thunder to Home and then to scratch off my ONE $5 Winner... NUTZ!
So then some Breakfast and back to the Computer to listen to the Thunder and work on my Indexing some more
And...I kept at it and worked on my Indexing Pages, added another Parkville Page
Then rearranged the links I had on the first Two pages to the proper ones
Stopping now and then for a sip or a chew, then I the started on a new Video subject
What now, a Web Page of 'The Family Album'... Well an album of ME and progress through life
Maybe boring to everyone but me but I like Me... HAH!
And that was the end of a fairly nice day in spite of the Heavy T-Storms earlier
OH OH, Weather report says T-Storms, don't they know I watered good on Saturday
I remember last night on TV the guy said another cool Day but I don't remember him saying storms
So we do have another cool start at 67 Degrees at 7 a.m. and only heading to 75
And... what about all that Video Indexing? I believe I am pretty well all caught up with that
I finished one more Video on Saturday and edited all of the Index Pages for errors
I think I have most all the Videos I have on my Vimeo Site indexed, might find one now and then
Now the only thing I have in mind is see which of my Web Pages might make an interesting Video (for me)
Then... DAGNABBIT! Went to check my Sunday Crossword Puzzle and forgot they don't change it for Sunday
So I have another boring 15 Minutes to use up, well there's the 'Jumble'...
Or I could hunt around for a different Crossword, Ho Hum... Darn!
Ans so, started cruising through my Video Files again, looked like one was missing
Couldn't find it online or in my Computer files, maybe I made a DVD, looked, yeah!
So copied that File, added it to the Timeline, Rendered, tried to Upload and no go
Says that Video will exceed my Weekly Upload limit so I'll have to wait for that to reset
Now who but me would know or care if that one item was missing? Well, something to do
And uploaded and added to my Video Index all in good time... Good if it is fun for me..HAH!
A little after 8 a.m. Yeah we might get Storms, I heard a distant Rumble or two
Then about 8:30, do I hear Rain out there... A peek out on the Window Cam, yessir and another Rumble
And as usual, give the Plants a good watering and then the next Day here comes the Rain
So, still poking around in my Files looking for Videos I may have missed, and not in the Index
What about my IBM Career? Didn't I do a Video of that, Oh yeah, there it is
And no 'Personal' File to put it in, so... Voila! Something to keep busy another hour or two
And then I saw my Web Page od tearing down the old Smokestack at the old College Power Station
They turned that place into a Restaurant, later the tiles began falling off the Smokestack
So they hired a crew to tear it down and of course I ran down there to take Photos
So I started editing the Photos on that page, adding to a Timetime, taking a break now and then
Hit the Price Chopper fot Lottos, Walgreens for something, back to work the Video
And that was about it for the Day, I had it complete and uploaded to watch on my TV by 6 p.m.
Then completed one more Day as usual, see ya on Monday>
Only Idea I have for the Day at this early moment is to trot back to the Fast Stop to see Navru
And no idea for another Video so far but that could change at any time
I do want to go back through all the Video Indexes I made to alphabetize them, several done already
Then running a little late for Saturday, just finished my Coffee and Puzzles so now what?
Well, alphabetize one more Index page? Yeah I'll do that and then what?
Did that and then it was time to head out, this time to the ATM, then to the Fast Stop
Traded in a $20 Win and a Five spot for Five more Tickets and headed back
This time, scratched off ONE FIVE DOLLAR WIN! NUTZ! all over again
OK, had a piece of my Banana Pie, Hey purty good! And back to my Index Pages
Went through all 35 Subjects correcting this and that, now think they are all OK
Then I thought my latest Saint Joseph Video needed a bit more subject matter
I already have an 'Animal' Video, some in Parkvile but most were in Saint Joseph
And all the Saint Joseph animals were in one long sequence so I copied that series
Then put the Saint Joseph Video back in the Video Editor, added the extra Photos
Then rendered again, uploaded again, then replaced the first Video online with the new Edit
NOW.... Time for a Break, headed out front, saw Chris sitting out and tottered back down there
Showed him my latest Edit I just finished, then about a half Hour of chat and back up the Hill
On the way in saw the Coleus needed a good drink, hooked up the Hose and back out
Then watered everything real good from end to end and done for the Day
Before I get neck deep into that... What's the Weather for the Day? Looks OK on the Window Cam
Says 70 out there right now at 8 a.m. That's super comfy, yeah, partly Sunny and heading to 82
Now that is very close to what I call D.N.P. Weather and give me more of that!
OK, Had my Juice, now sipping my Coffee, Blog is posted... I'll start sorting my Photos
And did that, finished my Coffee, worked my Puzzles, time to hit the Shower then hit the Road
Off to the Fast Stop, hello to Navru, gimmee some Lottos, thank you and Hasta Luego
And headed back, saw the Neighbors were out again so I stopped to chat until Chris Left
His Appointment Day again, then back to my place, to have a Glucerna and scratch
This time a tad better, bought $25 worth of Tickets and won $25 back, time to try again
So, needed a couple Items at the Price Chopper, headed back for those and try more Lottos
Got my stuff, Traded my Wins for $25 more tries, back to unload and win back $20... Oh well
Then back to the Photo Editor, then to the Video Timeline, worked all afternoon
And then finished and upoaded the newest Video at 4:30 p.m. Whew all over again!
THen time to shut down the Movie Studio and finish out the Day with Food and TV
And that was all she wrote for Friday...
Checked the Email and Facebook, now the Weather? Ohhhh, nice, 71 at 8 a.m. and heading to 81... Nice!
But says cloudy but I guess we can live with that, not wanting any rain please
OK, did my Puzzles, 8:30 a.m. Now can I find more Photos of my old place that I haven't used?
Here I go, don't wait up for me, it might be a few more Hours... OH NO! Already found a Subject
Some of those animals around my place here and there over the years, here I go...
OK... Four Hours later... Time to take a break and head out for the Day's Losses...
Backing out I saw the Neighbors out again so I stopped for a few Minutes for catch-up chat
This time Chris had a Doctor's Appointment and when his Driver showed up I took off
This time the Price Chopper, I needed some more Juice... Got that and cashed in $25 worth of Winners
Used that to buy $25 worth of more possibilities(?) And headed Home to check them out
NUTZ! Only won a skinny $10 worth, Oh well... still ahead from Wednesday
So, hot to trot on that new Video so back at it, lots of Photo editing to do
Kept at it, this one taking a lot more hunting and editing for all the right Photos
Even checking out You Tube for a possible 'That's All Folks' ending
And now on to a new Day in Mid-Week already... What for today, kinda bored with Videos at the Moment
But come up with an Idea and I am back to being mesmerized by the new Project... Oh yeah
OK... 'Let's get started here'... I remember that's what my Field Manager used to say to us in 1956
We would be out in the IBM Shop area in the Main Office chatting away, he would come in and chase us out
Get out there and take some Service Calls, we got work to do... (what is 'work' anyway, we never did any)
Servicing all that IBM Equipment was not any kind of work, just fascinating 'PLAY'
Well what kind of weather we got today, looks kinda cloudy out there... But says 'partly Sunny' for the Day
74 now at 8 a.m. That's nice... Later heading to 87, well that's better than Tuesday fer sure
I was earlier supposed to have a Therapy Appointment for Today but I cancelled that
I have a GastroEnterologist Appointment for next Monday and used that as an excuse to cancel
And now I won't reschedule as I can do those exercises at Home, if and when I feel like it
OK, 9 ayem and what's next, all done with the usual getting started Computer fooling around
Now ready for the Day, sort and put away and hang up those clothes out of the Wash
Then into the Shower, Shampoo and a Shave and then what? Get outta here before ya start another Video!
Headed out, stopped in first at the Neighbor's for a little Chat, then headed for the Price Chopper
Traded in $15 worth of Winners, bought $35 worth more Tickets, then back around the corner
Trotted in to the Therapy Center, told them I had that GI Doctor Appointment, so cancel my next one there
Now, only the GI Doc appointment waiting and no more at the Therapy Center... Bye Bye
Back home to scratch... Hey, a $5 Win, then LOOKEE! a $40 Win... a couple duds and a $10 Win
So... got some profit there, time to visit Navru, I needed some Gas in the Blazer anyway
Then it was back to the Computer and the Videos, thought I would start on one of my Gardens In Saint Joseph
Lots of Photos on my Web Page, I just got my Photo Editor Going and edited all of them to 1920 x 1080 size
Then started another Video, added an Intro, added all the Photos to the Timeline
Added what Subtitles I thought were needed, 'layered' a photo of me up in the Gazebo, added that
Added Music and a Photo of me digging for a Finale... Rendered, Uploaded and here it is...
Well it took longer than that... I finished and uploaded that Video just before Noon
Then got dressed for the Day and got ready to head out for entertainment besides Computering
Was going to head for the Fast Stop but saw Chris out front so I stopped to brag a bit
Told him my Computer Video, Number 502 was uploaded and ready... Said somethng about my Canoe Video
So he flipped on his Phone, looked it up on my Index and watched the whole thing... HAH!
Then I was talking about my Veper Kansas Video I made for my Cousin, he wanted to see that one too
Sp he watched that one all the way through and then it was time to head out, getting Hot!
Up my Hill then up and down Bell Road and then down the Hill on 45 Highway 45 to the Fast Stop
'Hola' and 'Que te pasa?' and gimmee my Lottos, got Six new Tries and headed Home to scratch
And Five Duda and one dinky Five Spot win, Phoooey all over again, so what's for the rest of the Day?
OK, checking out that new Video to add it to this page... OOOOPS! One photo on there twice in a row
Can't have that, makes a scene too long... So, fired up the editor, took it out, what to replace it with?
HAH! One more Photo of ME at the Computer, but the Computer Screen in the Photo was blsnk, how to fix that?
Well I have the 'Paint.Net' Photo editor... Added my Computer photo, then 'Layered' on a Photo of El Pato
Now that came out kinda cute, added it as the next to last Photo on the Timeline, rendered and uploaded again
So watch the ending on that Video up there carefully see what a GENIUS I am!
I did make it through the Day with some limping round now and then but easing up by bedtime
And I tried to stay off my right side all night and then woke up this Morning, mostly all gone,... Wooopie!
Anyway who wants to hear about what ails ya? Let's talk about boring Indexing and Videos
And I finishd out the Day Saturday editing and reuploading my Motorcycle Video
I found Three spelling errors while watching on my TV and I can't allow that!
For today? I'll do another Video on a Hobby Subject... Which One? Maybe Computers or Canoes?
Well guess what? I already had made a Canoe Video and quite complete... But what about those Boats?
I had a few Photos about the Boats I had earlier, so I edited them, started a new Video with those
And then added the Canoe Video to the Timeline, now I have a better 'Canoes On the River' Video
Edited, rendered and uploaded to Vimeo before 10 a.m. How about them apples?
And then I headed out for my Lottos, time to wake up Navru, and that I did
I got my Lottos and headed back, saw the neighbors were out so I stopped in there
Had a seat on 'my' chair, some chat while Chris waited for his Monday ride
The ride showed up, he left and I was going to leave but Julie said I didn't need to run off
So I sat back down and we had another Twenty Minutes or so of chat and then back to scratch
Again, not much luck lately and only found a single $5 Win... NUTZ!, so back to the Computer
This time starting on my 'All them Computers' Video... Started by getting Screen Shots of my Web Page photos
And there were a lot of them... Wow! Then started editing them to Video Screen Size
Then found that there was not enough vertical spacing to get a good edit of some photos so DANG!
Quit on that for the Day, maybe get back at that on Tuesday
So the rest of the Day was pretty much just dull routine and not worth mentioning
And we hang up the Keyboard for now and adjourn until Tuesday Morning... OK? Yeah OK...
Like most all my early Hobbies, I dig deep into them for a while then switch to a new one
The only ones that have lasted for 80 years are Photo and Gardening (and Smokin BBQ)
So then back to my Index Project, growing and growing with one more Idea after the last
I have Web Pages of my Hobbies but Videos of only a Couple, made one more Saturday
And now starting on another one Today, Them there Motorcycles... and more to come
And so, time slips away... Noon Time and time to take a break from the Photo Editing
Headed to the Price Chopper to get the daily dose of Lottos, saw the neighbors out when I got back
Pulled in there for a short Visit, then back Home to work my Lottos for a $25 Win
A Glucerna and back to my Video, then adding Photos to the Timeline, Video then done at 4 p.m.
Rendered and uploaded my Video Number 501... And more to come...
Well by 4 p.m. whatever activity I chose for the Day has usually wrapped up
So what is there to add except the usual wind down, maybe I can just say 'ditto'
So now... Ditto for Sunday and let's go try another Monday
So, woke up during the Night, lots of silent Lightning flashes in the Window, then some low thunder
Later bigger flashes and louder Thunder and is that Rain I hear?... Yeah... heavy rain at that
And several times waking to the Storms and another big Rumble when I woke about 6:30 a.m
So, time to greet the Morning anyway so up and at 'em... A few more rumbles and then all quiet out there
What's the Weather Man say for the Day anyway? Hah! Cloudy and cool at 69 Degrees at 9 ayem
Later mostly Cloudy and heading to 88, well we can take that I spose
Yo Ho Ho! Worked an Hour on my Indexing and all the basic work is finished for now
Just need to hunt for Videos I have missed and add them, also see what I need to make a few new Videos
Some subjects I thought I had Videos of, I don't have... and so... something else fun to do
10:30 a.m. Time to get off the Computer and that Index adding and correcting, but almost DONE (for now)
Time to get out in that fine? Weather and go get some Lottos, where to? Navru again?
Yep, down to see Navru, got my lottos and headed back, only won $15 and back to Indexing
Worked on cleaning up the errors and changes I made in the first Pages, easy to mess up something
Then decided to make some new Pages of things I had on web Pages but no Videos
And thought I could make a short Video of all the Guns I had in the old Days
I didn't have many Photos but I needed to edit them to size and touch them up a lttle
And I had that done and rendered and uploaded to Vimeo by 4 p.m AHA!
So on to the usual evening shut down and off to sleepy time... See ya
OK, 8:30 a.m. and All's Well... almost... Waiting to head out to the Therapist
Computer stuff all caught up, Shower, Shave, Shampoo and ready to go!
And I am going to tell the lady to cancel the two appointments next week
I have that Gastro appointment scheduled and want to see how that comes out
Then Pat called, said she would be over later and then out the Door at 8:45
Checked in at the Therapy Center, got started and was not feeling all that good
Did a few Exercises, still not feeling good and told the Attendant that
She checked my BP, it was a little high, not so very high but we decided it was time to quit
And I canceled my next scheduled appointment... Said I would call after I see what the GI Doc has to say
But I have decided to stop the Therapy Treatments there, I can do the exercises at Home
After I checked out of the Therapy Center I headed around the Corner to the Price Chopper
Needed some Party Items for the Afternoon Visit, Chocolates, Mixed Nuts and Juice and Beer
Got that and my Lottos and headed Home Sweet Home, unloaded and scratched off a $10 Win
Then back to the HTML Editor to work on some more Video Indexing, this time changing things
Most Videos already added, was then changing the Type Size, Color and spacing between Lines
Was still at that when I hear the Knock Knock... Come in... look what I am doing!
Showed Pat what I was doing, then enuff of that and into the Theater Room to show her how it worked
And it works great, so much faster to find a Video then plodding through the Vimeo display
We watched some old Nature Sanctuary Videos, then it was Bobby Flay time and on to other things
A long pleasant afternoon, closing on to 5 p,m, then it was time to head up the Hill
Into the Kitchen first to load up on some of Navru's Goodie Gifts, some of this some of that
Then ready to head back up the Hill after inspecting the front Garden
And on to another somewhat tedious evening after that, trying to find an interesting Movie
And the Evening wound down and off to bed to charge up for another Weekend.... SO SOON! DAYUM!
Another Therapy Day Scheduled Friday, Two more next week but having second thoughts about that
I'll see what they do Friday, if nothing much new, I might drop the rest of the Program
I have the Gastro Appointment the 26th, that might involve more important stuff
So I can drop the Therapy sessions and do them at home (if able) HAH!
Finished my Couputer run around and then did some more on my Indexing Projext
The main part is done but I keep adding bits and pieces and touch-ups, so far works great
Especialy trying to find a Video quickly on my Phone, why didn't I try this sooner?
Then time to head out to see Navru again, had $35 worth of Winners to trade...
Traded for $30 worth of new Tickets and then Navru loaded me up with more Goodies
So much that I have some for me, some for Pat and who else? Maybe the Neighbors?
I saw then out front when I got back, pulled in there to let them choose some goodies
Some Thank Yous... and then back up to my place to unload and work my lottos for $30, Even up
And kept at it until around 4 p.m. Then took the trash out to the Bin
Had clouded up a bit and there was a nice cool breeze, on the way back from the Bin I saw Chris was out
So I toddled down there, we had a long chat and then back up the Hill for TV, Dinner, TV and Bed time
Sunny and 74 Degrees when I left, quite comfy and heading to 85, not as hot
Stopped by the Price Chopper for my Lottos on the way, checked in at 9 a.m.
Then on a Machine to push pedals for Eight Minutes, whew, but got it done
Next on the flat Bed for some exercses, then some standing ones, getting tired
One more routine and done at 10 a.m. and that's enuff of that for the Day
Back home to update my Blog and work my Lottos for exactly NUTHIN again!
Then later, what do do? NUTHIN! Lets' go see Navru again, Hola Gringo!
He was his Phone again, which is more often than not, turned to me and asked how to say 'Zachariah'
And I said that, the Father of Saint John in the Bible... Well it's in the Quran too
Well he said he named his Son that, only in Arabic and it's pronunced a bit different
Listening to Navru say it, the closest I can get to saying that, sounds like 'Zek a rea'
Well he named his Kid after a Jewish Priest... But the figure is also in the Quran
'Zechariah is a figure in the New Testament Bible and the Quran, hence venerated in Christianity and Islam'
Oh well, he is too wrapped up in his Religion to suit me... Bah Humbug!
Anyway, got my Lottos and headed Home, this time to do much better on Winners
Got a $10 Win and then a sweet $25 on my Favorite Crossword, no profit but less of a loss
Stopped by on the way back up the Hill to get a Photo of all the new Sod at Ace Hardware
Really dresses up the front appearance of that place up on the Hill
And then, on the way back I stopped to pick up my Mail and who is that from?
'Consultants in Gastroenterology'... AHA My Primary Doc referral to a Gastroenterologist
So I called and now have an appointment for August 26 to see what they can see
Not much going on after that, I did go out front and rake some more pebbles again
And the Pump in one of my Bird Baths was loose, So I emptied the Bowl, dried it out
Cleaned the filter in the Pump, added some 'Super Glue' and popped it back in the Bowl
Then saw the Neighbors out front so I toddled down there for an afternoon wind down chat
Then it was again the usual, TV, Dinner, More TV and see ya manana...
