 Thursday12- I did my stretches.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 48 and 71 degrees, winds out of the SW at 7 to 18 MPH, humidity around 34 percent, altostratus clouds.
According to the National Weather Service: “Friday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 63. West northwest wind between 9 and 13 mph, with gusts as high as 18 mph. Friday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 45. West northwest wind between 7 and 9 mph.”
I jumped in the Gross Polluter for a drive down to Yucca Valley. My first stop was at Home Depot to get two more boxes of tiles and some bolts for my telescope mirror mount. Fortunately they had the size of bolts I needed and I can get the scope back in working order for the first time. I drove into Arco by WalMart to get gas but every time a space opened up someone would beat me to it; this happened four or five times! So I drove down the street to another Arco and I didn’t have that problem. It was on my way to Brown’s Music where I bought some strings to replace the one I keep breaking. Margarita, the lady there, was very helpful in helping me order some Herco nylon picks that I use; I break them too but not so often. Then I went to Stater Bros to stock up on supplies, and on my way back home I picked up my mail. I accomplished everything I set out to do in town; usually I’m in a hurry to get back home and forget something.
At Stater Bros I was trying to find jelly or jam that didn’t have anyhigh fructose corn syrup, but every one of them had it as an ingredient, so I bought honey instead. My sister who is a dietician says that HFCS is poison. I’ll take her word on that!
No working on tiling today; I think I’m a little burned out (mentally and physically) with that right now. So I messed around with the telescope mirror to see if the bolts worked. I need to cut some springs from a coil I have that go on the bolts to the inside of the mount but I’ll tackle that maybe tomorrow if I get the time.
I felt a little tired so I closed my eyes for a short nap that was not so short as that I woke up just as the Sun Set; so no evening walk today. Instead I called a few friends and then strung the string on my guitar and played for a spell.
I watched “My Name is Earl”, “Huell Howser” on PBS, “Fastforward” on ABC, and then wrapped the night up with “Fringe”.
I did my stretches and went for a night run; practiced my guitar; wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.
