~ ¡ La Sombra lo sabe ! ~
And I believe it is Tuesday... My How Time slips away, halfway through January already!
And waking up to a warmer Morning... Says it is 39 Degrees out there at 6 a.m. and heading to 47
Well Joe was off One Degree, he said a top of 48... But Cloudy... my Forecast says now
So what for Today? Need to take my new Jeans back to the UPS Dropoff for return
Either I ordered the wrong Size or they made a Mistake, Oh well, I ordered again
But first a short run to Platte City and a stop on the way back at the Grab and Go for my Lottos
Forgot to mention the big event of the Afternoon on Monday... Tom installed my new Thermostat
So far I think it is working better, a more overall even Temperature unless it is my Imagination
Anyway, the old one was there for over 20 Years and this one is better looking and easier to reset
Well now, peeking out on the Window Cam, Joe was right again, Babee it's Foggy out there
Hope that clears up a little when I head up the Highway about Nina Klock
And OH! So bored now at 7:30 a.m. Just nuthing to do... well go get cleaned up I guess
And that I did and at 9:15 a.m. Fed the Cat and then off to the UPS store and dropped off my return
And then headed down back the Hiway to the Fast Stop to trade in a $15 Win and buy $40 worth of Losers
And then West on Hiway 45, then up Hiway 435, arrived at 9:45, checked it signed my Paper and headed back South
And back Home to scratch my Losers at 10:30 a.m. And now at 11 a.m. WHAT TO DO?
So, had a few of Pat's Birthday Cookies with some Ho Hum TV and decided to go lose some more money
And still using my Big Win Money from earlier, a couple Hundred left but dwindling now
Then headed to the Price Chopper, got $20 worth of Tickets at the Service Counter
Then over to Machine Two to get $20 More, and Home James! Time to scratch again
This time again all Duds EXCEPT for One nice $50 Win... HAH! Now let's go see Juan
So I took off for the Grab and Go again... Hola Amigo... Traded in my $50 Winner and got in $50 Tickets
Then back at el Ranchito to scratch off ony a $20 Winner, Oh well, that was winner Money anyway
Quit then? You kidding?... I saw I needed Gas so I headed to the Minit Mart, filled up and headed inside
Traded in my $20 Winner, got $35 More tries, headed back for the last Scratch of the Day
Then scratched off a $5 win, well a start, Then a $20 Win... Hey Hey... And then a $100 Win! HOORAY!
OK... That took me up to 3 p.m. Time to set out some Dinner makins and see if anything on TV is interesting
I have all those Chicken Thighs to start on and still Six Pork Chops in the Freezer
Time to start on that Chicken Today... Excuse me while I set out my Dinner prep
And that I did, back to the TV to finish out another active Day... Let's do it again
Monday again! Yeah! And nothing on the Agenda except to roast my Poke Chops whenever...
Well get some winner Lottos too, yesterday was just Seven Losers! BAH HUMBUG!
Is it gonna warm up some? I think Joe said so, hmmmm, not yet, says 25 Degrees at 6 a.m.
But then says SUNNY! WHOOOOPEEE! And heading to 46 and that's almost warm...
More important is what's for tomorrow for that drive to Platte City with no working heater
AHA! Still says Sunny and a bit higher Temp at 48 degrees, that should work out OK
Well now, some Garden talk... All the Plants in the Living Room Garden were looking good
Then I harvested the Lettuce, it was OK, then one Pepper plant kind of withered
I removed it and planted more Lettuce there... Then the other Pepper plant bloomed
But now the Blooms have died back and looks like the plant is giving up
9:30 a.m. BAH! 26 Degrees and Mostly Cloudy it says... and it IS!
And there is ICE on my Windshield! Where is that Sunshine they forecast?
I wanna head to the Price Chopper, need some Glucerna and some more loser Lottos
And at 11 a.m. there was NO Ice on my Windshield and I took off for the Price Chopper
And then 'Twas a Foggy Morn in Parkville Town'... They said it was 'Dense' looked 'Light' to me
And there I picked out $40 in Lottos, got some Bleach, Cat Food and Glucerna, what a selection!
Then headed back to scratch off only $30 in Wins, well you know how that goes
OK, that wasn't enough losing for the Day, where to next? Hadn't been to the Fast Stop for a couple Days
So down the Hill, traded in my Winners, got another Handful and Surprize!... A BirthDay Present!
For my Finale, a newly Roasted Pork Chop, Green Beans, Sweet Potatoes and TV
So what else is new? Nuthin around here
A 'Happy Day after the Day?' We shall see, I need to get the Snow off the Car and get to the Price Chopper
And buy some Lottos, first Day I missed buying Lottos since those unhappy Days in 2018
Or do you remember when I fell then and had a 4 Day Hospital stay? I kinda remember that
And I need Glucerna and Juice and something to cook if and when... What sounds good?
I am finally all out of the Goodies I made for the Last couple Holidays except for Christmas Cake
And Oh yes, a little of that Turkey Dressing Mix still in the Freezer
Well, no hurry, looks like... it is 22 Degrees out there at 8 a.m. Forecast sounds better though
Saying heading to 40 Degrees and Sunny but I don't see even a tiny Sun Beam as of yet
OK, let's check the Gardens, new Blooms on the Way in the Living Room and the Kitchen
Don't know if we will get any more from the big Impatiens Plant in the big Pot
Anyway... Noon Time, Sun bright out front, put on my heavy Jacket, Gloves and Cap
Grabbed my Broom and out into that 27 Degrees of Cold, Sun not helping much yet
Looked like Five Inches of Snow on top of the Mercedes, started sweeping it off
And under the Snow a heavy layer of Ice... DARN! Looks like I ain't goin anywhere right away
Got most of the Snow off and then back inside to warm up
Time Marches On! 2 p.m. and the Temp up to 30 Degrees, they were saying 40 at 3 p.m.
Wish it was now, get that Ice off my Windshield and get up to the Price Chopper
But the Sun went away and a lot of dark Clouds out there now... Phooooey!
In between times I chopped up some Taters, Onions and Celery, making some Tater Soup for later
OK, ready to tackle the Snow about 3 p.m. Headed out with some warm Water to get the Ice off my Windshield
Nope, no need, Ice all gone! Yippee, got in and headed up the Hill, street wet but no Ice
At the Price Chopper, cashed in $35 worth of Winners, got my Scratchers and then my Goodies
Needed this, that and some of the other, loaded up and headed Home, the Cat was waiting for me
Well, I got some Chicken Thighs so I'll have some skin and fat trimmings for him
Put my stuff away, trimmed the Chicken Thighs, put them in the Pan and seasoned good
Put my Chicken in the Oven to roast and took the trimmings out for the Cat and back to the TV
Well... Here we are again and Happy Birthday to Me! In 2018 I wasn't sure I would make it to 87 years
And here it is January 11th in 2020 and I am still making noise on my Blog, Oh well... Grin and Bear it
And it is back to Wintertime today after about a week of an early Springtime warmup
I hope we get over this Snow and cold some before next Tuesday for my Annual trip to Platte City
An early peek at the forecast so far for that Date shows clear and warming a bit
And what does it look like out there Today so far? Well COLD for one thing at 19 Degrees at 6 a.m.
And the Forecast says 'Winter Storm Warning' now... with Snow and a High? of 24 Degrees... Oh well, deliver me from Evil
Well what does it look like inside then? My Daisy is ignoring the Weather out there
I see another Bloom getting ready to burst open any Day now, the 4th since I brought it inside
And in the Kitchen Garden a new Bloom has burst open with Two more on the way
And then, what's it look like out front? Took a peek out the Door and the Cat peeked in
Told him to wait a minute to see what I might have for him, out to the Kitchen to thaw a couple hot dogs
And 9 a.m. Looks like Joe was right, snowing pretty good out there and now and then some big flakes floating down
And I do want to trade in $35 worth of winning Lottos but I don't want to try that Snowy Hill
That old Mercedes doesn't like any slick surfaces at all...
And the heavier Snow started. thought I would catch it on my Window Cam, I already got a shot at 7 a.m. Then at 8 a.m.
And 9, then 10 a.m. And it was snowing heavily by 11 a.m. so I got lots of Video, Snow slowed down about Noon
And by then I was working away on my Video, finshed, rendered and uploaded and had it on Facebook at 12:30 p.m.
So it was a very very slow Afternoon trying to keep interested in whatever I could find on TV
I did manage to stay up almost to 7 p.m. then just gave up from boredome
Why can't they make interesting Movies anymore? Just Bang Bang and the F word, so sad...
Anyway over all, a pretty good BirthDay, made it all Day without eating any of my Cake!
Well I still have some in the Fridge for Breakfast Sunday... For a Happy Day after the Day?
What's the Weather? Joe says it's gonna Snow on Saturday... But for Today... Still warm
Well 40 Degrees out there at 6 a.m. but saying only 44 and Snow... That ain't what Joe said
I guess it sneaked in on him ahead of his prediction, he said Rain for Today
So I better get out and get my Lottos early and then prepare to hibernate a spell
A minor bit of Gardening in the Kitchen... One of my Pumpkin experiments gave up and I dumped it
Stll watching to see what the other single plant will do, not expecting much
Last year I made Four 'Year' Videos and Four 'Garden' Videos and a DVD of each of the Eight Videos
I'm, thinking now of making ONE Video combining the 'Year' and 'Garden' events frommy Blogs
Collect the Photos on a Timeline for one Month, then post the Video online
Then work on adding the next Month offline, then render and add the revised Copy
Ending up with One Video for the whole Year, (If I last the whole year)
Starting on that right now and that will give me a little something to do
Oh yes! Something to do, I make the Photo copies from 'Screenshots' so...
I made Screenshots from the Photos I have already posted in 2020...
WOW! Only 31 Photos to edit so far! Yep, that gives me something to do!
Hey now! That was a great Idea!... (IMNSHO) Took me through the Morning to 8:45 a.m.
Edited the Photos, started the new Video, added the Photos to the Timeline
Added an Entro, some Music and VOILA! A good start on my Year 2020 Video!
10 a.m. Temp dropped a degree, been raining all morning, still says Snow in the Forecast
But that happens later when the Temp drops and they are saying 20 Degrees on the way... BAH!
Andoff in the wet tothe Price Chopper, traded in that dinky $5 Win, got $40 more
Back then to win back $30, Oh well, can't win 'em all they say...
And about Noon-Thirty or so a call from Pat, you going to be Home, I have a Birthday Gift for you
But of course, always have time to receive Gift Goodies, comeon down
And she was here in a flash with a big Box of her homemade Cookies for me
Back to the Computer at 2 p.m. to catch up on Photos and Blog and WHAMMMOOHHHH!
Big loud Thunderclap ouside my Window... HUH? Says Snow, are we getting a ThunderSnow Shower?
Nope, still says Rain but the Temperature was dropping and a really Dark Afternoon out there
OOOOPS! Now says 34 Degrees and Thunderstorms! And Snow still in the Forecast
On to a long dark cold drippy Afternoon and Evening, some TV and a Spagetti anda Meata Ball Dinner
Ending with a scary 'Steven King' Movie and off to another Night od Dreams, some of them scary too
And Tomorrow...'Happy Birthday to Me!'
Well Joe says one more nice Day then he's turning on the Cold again
Starting out at WOW! 55 Degrees Today at 6 a.m. Then heading to 59 but mostly Cloudy
NOW WHAT! 6:20 a.m. All done with ALL my computer stuff including Puzzles! NOW WHAT?
Should I start doing my "Quarters' Garden and Year Videos again?
Nah, I have two Years of that boring stuff already and no one looks at it
Even if I had a Family they probably wouldn't look at it... Saying we've seen and done it already
But then, now and then, I do check some things myself, 'Memories are made of This' ...You know
And I do have a lot of Memories, rememberng things I would tell my Mom way back when
And she would say... You can't remember that! You were only three Years old!
Well I did remember and I still do remember things way back in the 30s
Well then, Business to start the Day?... Where for Lottos? I got the last $100 Win from the Price Chopper
Last trip to the Fast Stop was NUTHIN and the Grab and Go only a dinky $5... and so?
And a peek at Garden Three, that Lettuce having a problem? Seems it should have grown more by now
But... Maybe too many Seeds in that Pod? The Pepper that was in that Pod didn't do well either? So...?
Checked the water flow inside that Pod, was working.. so what's the deal?
And then... Pie gone, headed out to the Fast Stop, bought $35 more Tickets and headed home
This time a better Deal, Won a $5, $25 and $30 Ticket... $60... Almost got my loss back
Headed out again to see if I could make a profit, back to the Grab and Go for $35 More
This time only won back $10 and so, no profit but some fun trying
On into another not much Afternoon, just this and that to try to keep busy
Nice Weather outside but nothing to do out there, not much to do inside either
So the clock ran down the usual way, Ho Hum, got a Weather warning from Joe for my Birthday Saturday
He was saying I would probably have a 'White Birthday', and wouldn't that be fun?
So bye Bye Thursday, come on Friday... make me Happy!M
Wednesday... Hurrah! What for Today? NOTHING planned and I like it that way for Today
Always a relief to get any Doctor or Hospital visit out of the way and now none due until January 29th
And that is just a 'Heart Doctor' visit to check on my Pacemaker and vitals
I do need to get a Dentist Appointment though, just for a checkup and cleaning
Hmmmm, feels just a tad chilly in here? Babee is it Cold outside? Well 31 Degrees at 6 a.m.
Saying mostly Sunny and heading to 52... Sounds a lot like it was for Tuesday
So, checked the Bank... Email and Facebook, finished and posted my Blog, now what?
OK, pour a cup and work my Puzzles,.. Ho hum... Getting bored already?
OK, something to do, look at that AeroGarden... The one on the Right was ahead at first
Now the one on the left wants it's Grow Light raised again, OK I'll take care of that
Might even take a couple Minutes... And AHA! Garden Three wants some Water again
Then Tom, the Maintenance Man stopped in for a few minutes to fix the hole in the Wall
Where he fixed the Water Leak earlier, first patch done, might take a couple more calls he says
And... I saw a double Paynemt for my Apartment Rent from the Bank this month, what's the Deal?
Did some checking, looks like I made a boo-boo, I signed up for 'Auto-Pay' then forgot
Then made my usual Paynemt and the Bank did me in, paid Double, need to talk to the Manager about that
I called her, she said she would be in the Office later, come on by, needed to update my Lease anyway
And so then at 1 p.m. or so, up to the Office, Mimi wrote me a check for $600... great!
And then advised me my Rent would go up this Year (as usual)... But I can afford it
So, then a quick trip to the Bank, then behind the Bank to the Price Chopper for some Candy and Nuts
Got my stuff and a few more Lottos too, hadn't been a very good day for winners
Then back Home, the Cat was waiting for Chow, gave him a piece of Turkey again
Then worked my Lottos, scratched off Four $5 Duds, then the $10 Ticket I splurged on
And AHA! LOOKEE!... Said 20X $5... That a Hunnerd ain't it? Whooopee another super Winner!
Second $100 Win for the Month and stll have $300 of that $500 Ticket I won
Tuesday Morning and up way too early, just have to try to stay up longer
Usually up at 5 a.m. and that ain't too bad but this Morning I woke up at 3:30 a.m.
And wide awake, might as well give up and get up so that is what I did... Oh well
So, Juice and Coffee and worked my Bills and Banking stuff and Puzzles and now up to 6 a.m.
Still have three Hours until my Appointment at 'Ortho Health' in their fancy new Building
Across the Road from North Kansas City Hospital, my Home away from Home
On this Aerial shot it shows the Building under Construction, hope they have it in one piece now
Heading there to see what they have to say about that bump on my Wrist, and gonna ask about my Back problem
I think that's what Orthopedists pay more attention to, hadn't heard they do 'wrist bumps'
And a Kitchen Garden catch up again, the Vines are beginning to climb after all this Time
The Snapdragons started on a String in a Morning Glory Pot, then a Morning Glory woke up
Looks like all the Snapdragons are heading for one String from a Morning Glory Pot
And off into the Wild Blue Somewhere at 8:30 a.m. The Cat was waiting out front and I saw Ice on my Windshield
So I went back in for a piece of Turkey for the Cat and a pitcher of Water for my Windshield
Then I fed the Cat and cleaned my Windsheld and set off for North Kansas City
Then into the new Street, new Parking Lot and new building for Ortho Health
Checked in, a short Wait and then the Med Tech, next the Doctor and what's the problem?
He took a look and feel, yep, a Ganglion Cyst just like I saw on the Net
So he says no big deal, we can take it off but it will come back, leave it if no big problem
So a false alarm for now, watch and wait to see if anything further developes
Then I mentioned my fractured Spine, now have an appointment to check that out in April
Then stopped in on the way back at the Red X Store to trade in and buy more Lottos
Back home to scratch off $25 in Wins, and next? Need to bake a Cake for my Birthday
So back to the Price Chopper for the Goodies for that and more Lottos and won $35 this time
And then... Cake time... Easy enough, the big Mixer does most of the work, just dump in the stuff
Then into the Cake Pan and into the Oven about Noon 45 or so, off to the TV
Back to check the Cake about 1 p.m. Nicely done! Now let it cool and get a Birthday Photo
Then I can dig in and eat, don't have to wait for the Day, enough for Now til then and more
That was it for Cake Day, back to the TV and the usual taper down at the end of the Day
Nice Weather, busy enough, yeah an OK Day
Monday again! RAH RAH! Get everything back on track and those neighbors out of the parking lot
Nothing planned for this Day but a trip to the Doctor on Tuesday... What's wrong? Gonna find out maybe
I have a 'bump' on my wrist, can feel a 'pulse' in it, and it hurts a little now and then
Showed it to my Primary Doctor on my last Visit, he said it might be a 'Cyst' and referred me to an Ortho Doc
So what is a 'Cyst'? And why do you see an Orthopedist about that?
OK, I think I found what my Cyst might be... 'A ganglion cyst is a round, fluid-filled lump of tissue
That usually appears along tendons or joints, especially in the hands, wrists, ankles, and feet'
Juice gone, now is the Coffee ready? Let's pour a cup and go work my Puzzles
Now what? That sure didn't take long... Looks like another long Day ahead, just Lottos and boredom
Oh yeah, the Weather? Haven't checked but Joe said it should be OK I think
Yep... Barely to suit me, I like it a bit warmer, says 29 now at 6:30 a.m. and 44 later
But 'partly' Sunny and that might help a little, ya spose?
Then out to head to the Price Chopper, get my Lottos and head next door to Walgreens
Got my Loot there and headed back to scratch off $25 in Wins, no profit
Had a late Breakfast and then headed back to the same Machine at Price Chopper for another try
Back this time to scratch off another $25 Win and NO PROFIT! At least not a BIG loss
And once more back to the same Machine, playing different Cards and again another $25 Win and no profit
So, Lady luck winking at me but no big Smile for the day... so far
Then one more try, this time 'Way Out West' to the Grab and Go... 'Hola Jefe, Entradas por Favor'...
Got my Tickets and headed back, last trip for the Day out in that purty Sunshine
Back then to retire for the Afternoon and work my last haul for only a $10 Win
On through the rest of the Day, another Turkey Dinner then a Movie and off to bed too early
Enough for a not so much Day... See ya on Tuesday
Slightly better News from the Weatherman this Morning, 36 Degrees to start, heading to 50 and Sunny
That should be quite tolerable for January, deposit my share of snow and Ice elsewhere please
Saturday felt quite bearable without use of my heavy Jacket, I do like that Sunshine
One quick Photo in the Kitchen Garden, nothing much else of note, the SnapDragons are climbing
A peek out on the Window Cam, no Sunshine yet and still cool, even dropped one Degree
Anyway, loaded up my $110 in Winners and headed out, this time down the Hill to the Fast Stop
And... Cashed in my $110 Win, bought $35 more plus a $10 Ticket for a splurge...
Then back to scratch off only a $15 Winner, plus a $10 Win on that $10 Try... DAYUM!
And then... The Sun streaming in my Window at 8:30 a.m. Time for breakfast yet?
Still have most of that Pumpkin Pie... See how that will go with the TV News
And then, Blah... Headed back to the Fast Stop to try again... Traded in my Winners
Back again to scratch... and a $5 Winner... Oh well, then a couple losers and then WOW!
First the Extra 'Goal' and I got a Goal for $50... Yeah, then started on the Numbers
First one a $10 Winner... AHA... Big news ahead? Second Number $100... And kept on
A $10 Win then another $100 and on and on until a Total of $500, now that is NICE!
On the way in I saw that Cat on my Porch, what Cat? The one that used to hang around for dinner
Back when he was here most every day waiting for Food, then left for a while
Since then he drops in now and then for a quick Meal and Visit, last time was in May 2019
Then it was on into a warmer Sunnier Afternoon and back to the TV and bad news from Trump
Enough of that, time to find a Movie or something to while away the rest of that Winning Day
And I found a hunk of Turkey, Baked a Tater, hotted up some Green Beans with Onions and Celery
Finished up an old Western Movie and headed for Bed and again... Oh those Dreams!
Wake me up when it's Saturday... OH! Is that today? Sort of slipped up on me
Gee ain't it funny... how time slips away?... Except when I get bored
And that's creeping in on me already as I am all done with my Computer stuff and nuthin to do at 6:30 a.m.!
Well, I can pour a cup and go through my Mail again and mess around online
DUH..... 7:15... Ho Hum... What now, bored enough with all that online stuff
I need something creative to do but what Can I create cooped up inside in the Winter?
I was using a few minutes taking Photos from my Blogs with Screenshots, editing them
Then saving them in Files to add to my 'Year' and 'Garden' Videos but so far decided to end that
What do other old people do to keep busy anyway? I sure don't want any kind of 'work'... Just FUN!
OK, How about a catch up Photo of my Tomato Plants in the Kitchen, coming right along
Raised the Grow Lights another couple Inches... How high will they Grow?
They lights are at 16 Inches now, Plants can grow at least another 8 Inches or so
And those tardy SnapDragon Vines, Planted some in October, some in November and none going anywhere
That is, until I put all the popups into One pot, then nursed them along and now...
Finally in January they are starting to climb the String and pass up the Morning Glories there
Well what about Lottos? Off to the Price Chopper to trade in a couple $10 Winners, got $30 more
Then back to win back only $10, Drat... Can't settle for that, back for another $30 worth
Home this time to scratch off only a $20 Win, that ain't gonna pay the Rent... NUTZ!
On into the Afternoon and BORED! What to do? Oh well go lose that last $20 Win...
This time the Grab and Go again, traded in that $20 Win for $20 worth of Tries and headed back
OK, where's my Fortune, HAH! Scratched off a $5 Win! Whoopie, then a Dud and then... LOOKEE!
A very Nice $100 Win on the same Card I won that $500 in December! Last Card then, another $5 Win
Now the Curtain descends, nothing else of matter to reveal to my Public...
Hasta la Vista a Todos...
Well I do remember some of the good old Days, like when we got a decent SS Raise
Now the Politicans just add a few bucks to make themselves feel good, sure not us!
$14 won't even buy me Three of my favorite Lottos
Not much to do on the Third Day of the Year... Decided to burn a Blu-Ray of a couple Videos
My Fourth Quarter 'Year 2019' Video and my Fourth Quarter 'Gardens 2019' Video
That wraps up those two Year long projects of 2019 and I have no plan to redo them this Year
Just checking Garden Three and what is that? The newly planted Lettuce peeking up already?
When did I plant that Pod? Oh... December 31, so it's been a couple Days... great!
Now when can I harvest enough for another Sandwich?
Happy New Day Number Two for the new Year, wasn't sure I would make it to 2020
But looks like I did, now see if I make it to January 11th and 88 Years...
Just thinking when I got up this Morning, I keep thinking in my Head like I am in my 20s
I don't think like some old 80 plus year old guy so why am I stuck in this old body?
Joe says not as warm as Wednesday but not as Cold as Tuesday so... Bear with it
Yeah 38 at 6 a.m. A warmer start than Wednesday and Clear but later Cloudy and heading to 50 Degrees
I just have two trips planned so far, one to my Insurance Office for a new Calendar
If they still give out free ones for the New Year, then to the Price Chopper for a couple things
OK... My Video Data reset, I can upload my 43 Minute '2019 Fourth Quarter' Video at last
I'll watch this one sometime on my TV... Way too long to watch on my Blog but here it is for the record
Just checked the Length of my Four 2019 Year Videos, all over a half Hour, that's a lot of boredom!
Each Month getting longer, First 31 Minutes,then 36, 38 and 43, well, I added some Video here and there
Actually most all that stuff is already stored in my Daily Blogs so if I want, I can check there whenever...
And in and out of the Shower and out in the not so Cold Morning and on the way to the Price Chopper
Picked up my Lottos and continued on to the State Farm Insurance Office around the Corner and down the Road
Asked the Lady if they still gave out Calendars, Why yes, take your Choice, I got the Big One
They used to mail then, now you have to pick one up, but they are Free... It's my 44th Year now with State Farm
And, I only won $10 from my first Lotto try, thought that should be it for the Day... but...
Do I ever say quit when I should, HAH! Off to the Grab and Go again
And they said Cloudy earlier but out in the Sunshine and warming Temps to head out
Got another handful of Tickets and got $30 back, no profit, not much luck for the Day
Then thinking ahead, a Doctor Appointment soon and a short out of Town trip ahead
Kinda low on Gas, maybe should get filled up on this warm Afternoon while I think about it
So headed for the Minit Mart, filled up and traded in my $30 Wins for $30 more and lost them all
Than back Home at 1 p.m. Looks like that's it for any more activity for the Day
Ho Hum, back to a long slow Afternoon, then Dinner and TV and Good Night Irene
And a bizzy Morning first thing on the First Day in the New Year
Getting my Blog stuff switched from Internet File 2019 to Internet File 2020
I could still put all the new Photos and Videos in File 2019 but it is stuffed full already
And slows things down for me when I upload the new daily stuff to my Web Page Host
Such a nice relief to start the year with just a few Items in thar file to upload
So what's the Plan for the new Day in this new Year? Same as always at the moment... Not much
Already have my Blog Page Number 256 ready to go... this is It
Uploaded and Posted Page 255, Checked my Bank and Email and Facebook, worked my Puzzles
I do need to get a new 2020 Photo to add to my yearly .gif Photo up there in the Corner
But I ain't 88 Years old yet, should I wait until January 11th for that?
Reminds me too, I need to bake me another Birthday Cake soon
OK, what's the Weather going to be for me om January 1, 2020? I think Joe said it will warm up
Ohhhhhhh... Not a warm start! It says 29 Degrees out there at 7 a.m. and 'Clear'
And going to be Sunny and heading to 57 in the Afternoon, well better than Tuesday anyway
Oh... How nice! Just peeked out on the Window Cam and I see ICE on my Windshield!
I guess I can wait a while to head out for Lottos, cuz Babee it's COLD outside
And where to? Been waiting for the Price Chopper to fill up their Machines for a couple Days
Looks like they had a rush for the Christmas Tickets and ran out of several, haven't put in the new ones yet
A check on the Living Room Garden and lookee there... One Pepper Plant gave up yesterday
And the other One is Blooming Today, Win some, Lose some is how you play the Game
Traded in a few small Winners got some more Ammo, got a photo out front and headed back
This time to win back nuthin and Oh Woe, a slow nuthin day ahead
Then it was just coasting through the rest of the Day, slow quiet Day for the First one of the new Year
Did find a sort of interestig old Movie to wind down the Day and then dream about a new one
2019 Finale Day and what might be in Store? Let's jump right in and see what we can come up with
Looks like more Cold Weather to not enjoy but at least it says Sunny, that takes some of the edge off
Says 30 Degrees at 7 a.m. but only heading to 40 for a low Top Temperature for the Day
The first presentation for the Day... My Fourth Quarter Garden Video... Three Month Garden Finale for 2019
Gardening does give me some of my best times and then something to do by Photo and Videoing them
I am now thinking maybe I overdo it somewhat, and a lot is repetitive, do I need to do it again in 2020?
I do have the Daily Blogs to keep track of things, the Videos are mainly just a recap of the same events
So... Maybe the Blogs will be enough for the 2020 Gardens, that is -IF- there are more of them
Well, maybe I can't post it on my Blog... Unless... I Upgrade my Video Allowance now at 5 GB
Just checked and that 'Year 2019' Video is my longest yet I do believe... over 40 Minutes!
Well, I could separate it into two Videos, or just make do with a Blu-ray DVD for my TV... Well we shall see...
Then around 10:30 or so, time to head out for Lottos and where to? Grab and Go? Didn't win much there yesterday
Traded in the $5 I won there Monday and the $35 I won at the Price Chopper, bought $40 more tries
Back to scratch and won back $30, Oh well a $10 loss won't bankrupt me
Then Movie Time (Video that is)... Needed a little footage to finish my 'Year 2019' Video
So I got a catch up Video out Front, then one in the Kitchen, then one in the Living Room
Saying Goodbye to the way things were on the last Day of the Year, then on to the Editor
Added the new Video, adjusted things some, then saved, and rendered and Hey!... 3.46 GB and NOT too large to upload
So I'll burn a Blu-Ray DVD for my TV then wait for my Weekly Quota to reset and upload then
OK... Noon-Thirty, bright Sun out there but hasn't warmed up much, still 39 Degrees
Last Day before Pay Day, I just might be able to afford a few more Lottos
So I headed back to the Grab and Go about 1 p.m. Traded in my $30 in Winners, bought $25 more to try
And then only won $10 back, well ya can't win 'em all... can ya?
Then some corrective Gardening, looked like that Pepper Plant in Garden Three wasn't going anywhere
So I pulled out the Pepper Pod, dumped the plant and Pod in the Trash
