 Sunday 27- I got a call from Sue a little before 9am telling me that she has a flat tire. I don’t usually answer my calls until after 10am when I wake up but I forgot to turn off the ringer when I went to bed last night. I told her that I’d be down where she was waiting at a café to help. When I got there she was with her friend Mel and I drove them to where her truck was on the side of the road. The spare tire was flat and she didn’t have a jack; some folks just don’t have a clue! I had to drive fifteen miles to Stoney’s to inflate the tire with his compressor and then drive all the way back to her truck. The spare tire had a leak and I put some stop leak in it and told her to drive straight home; that was after I had to give her a jump to get the dang thing started. I then gave Mel a ride to his house and dropped him off. This took three hours before I got home. I told Sue to get an AAA card and not to call me again. It might sound a little harsh but she really has to get it together before she goes driving around without a decent spare tire and no tools to mount it.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 73 and 104 degrees, light breeze, humidity around 19 percent, clear skies.
According to the National Weather Service: “Monday: Mostly sunny and hot, with a high near 99. Calm wind becoming south between 10 and 13 mph. Winds could gust as high as 20 mph. Monday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 69. West southwest wind 17 to 20 mph decreasing to between 8 and 11 mph. Winds could gust as high as 30 mph.”
I was just about to start cleaning my house in preparation for a visit tomorrow from Terry when Joan called needing help with her computer. Well most of my plans have been already wasted by helping Sue, so I said to Joan to bring computer over and I’d have a look-see. That took another hour or so and now it was after 2pm. I had promised Karen and Danna that I‘d come by for a short visit and made my way over there. They had rescued some desert turtles from a Los Angeles backyard and I wanted to take some pictures of them. They’re about 18 years old but are really small for their age. Danna told me that they were kept in a small space, weren’t fed properly, and were smaller when he rescued them. They are now doing well living and eating in Karen’s garden.
I went over to Stoney’s to take a shower and yakked with him for a spell. By that time the Sun was getting ready to set and I didn’t even start on my cleaning. So when I got home I did what I could to clean up the place until “60 Minutes” came on CBS; I wanted to watch the story of where all the money went from Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme.
I talked to Kevin for a spell; he has a new lady friend! Then I went outside with the binoculars to checkout Delta Cephei that now appears to be dimmer.
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. Of course I’m still up reading and replying to some of my favorite blogs at Live Journal, checking out what’s happening on “Universe Today” and “Lifehacker”. I’m doing this until 3am when I start having trouble keeping my eyes open!
My thumb is better tonight…
