 Friday 11- I did my stretches, ran a mile, lifted weights, and rode my bike.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 36 and 54 degrees, slight breeze, humidity around 47 percent, clear skies. Where is that rain that was supposed to come in this evening?
According to the National Weather Service: “Saturday: A 30 percent chance of rain, mainly before 10am. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 56. South southwest wind between 6 and 15 mph, with gusts as high as 21 mph. Saturday Night: A 40 percent chance of rain, mainly before 4am. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 45. South southwest wind between 16 and 20 mph, with gusts as high as 28 mph.” 
I did the update to the Copper Mountain Mesa Website and sent out the Newsletter. There was a problem about the time of the memorial tomorrow. Mary Helen told me it started at 1pm, Marcie told me it was at 2pm, so I split the difference and made it 1:30pm; I hope that works.
Stoney called to tell me that he is still having that ringing problem with his phone that we requested the phone company to fix last November. I went over to his house and called them up asking why it wasn’t fixed. The rep said “there will be a repair person out on the 16th of this month to fix it.” I told her that “he is a ninety year old man who needs his phone working and that they have failed to fix it on two different occasions.” She said “the last repair person couldn’t find the place and couldn’t contact Stoney to get directions or leave a message.” I told her “of course he couldn’t because his dang phone doesn’t work.” She said “you don’t have to yell at me!” I told her “I’m not yelling I am just upset that the phone company doesn’t give a damn about us folks out here. We have nothing but problems and your company doesn’t want to invest in any new equipment and just switches a faulty phone over to another failing switch.” We ended the call on that note and I called a number on a card that one of the repair guys left and left a message telling him of the problem and if he can make sure that whoever comes out on the 16th knows where Stoney lives. After all this I finally talked Stoney into getting a cell phone; we’ve been trying to convince him to do this for several years now. Now if I can convince him into getting an AAA towing card so he doesn’t have to change a tire when it gets flat or can get a tow if his car engine dies I’d feel mighty good.
Stoney had just baked four sweet potato pies! Two of them will go to the memorial tomorrow and two are for us to eat. I had a big slice of one and it was dang good!
I went for my evening walk and then watched “My Name is Earl”. When that was over I read a chapter in the astronomy textbook as I installed Windows 7 on my Dell Mini 9 netbook which took several hours to complete.
“Numb3rs” was a rerun so I didn’t watch it and instead did my stretches; practiced my guitar; wrote to my journal; posted it to the web, and called it a night.
