Monday 22- I did my stretches; too dang cold and windy to do anything else.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 36 and 56 degrees, WNW winds at 13 to 31 MPH, humidity around 36 percent, cloudy skies here and there.
According to the National Weather Service: “Tuesday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 59. North northwest wind between 5 and 8 mph. Tuesday Night: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 39. South wind between 4 and 7 mph becoming calm.”
Well I needed to sign and mail the insurance papers today and drive down to my mailbox before the mailman gets there and that is just what I did. But first I had to hookup my scanner to the Netbook. It’s running Windows 7 and I thought I’d have a problem getting it to run. I didn’t install the scanners software, I just plugged in the USB connection, it loaded the scanner right up and I was scanning the documents in no time, wow! Then I got everything together and jumped into the Gross Polluter for the twelve mile round trip to my mailbox.
I spent the next four hours when I got back or so going through all my old pictures looking for any of Bob Seeley. When I found them I’d copy it to another file that I’ll take to Marcie who needs them for Bob’s memorial this Saturday; I found around fifty or so pictures of Bob and transferred the file onto a Thumbdrive.
Way too windy for an evening walk and cold too! I read aloud from the textbooks: “Astronomy Today"; “The Cell: a Molecular Approach”, and then spent my time going through old college papers I had done over twenty years ago. They were mostly on astronomy classes I took. I was reading one that was about Intrinsic Variable Stars printed out from a computer that I didn’t remember writing and thought it may have been some professional research paper I had printed out: it read really well! Then I found the same paper handwritten by me! It was from my Independent Study in astronomy at El Camino College on Intrinsic Variable Stars. Ah what memories!
Andrew called telling me of this 40’ Piver Trimaran he found for sale for a decent price; he remembered that dream I had last week I wrote about. That got my interest and we talked about it for a while. Then I thought about it for a spell. Then I called him up later in the night to talk about it some more. He may go down where it’s moored tomorrow and have a look-see. I told him what to check out for and what questions to ask the seller. I know Pivers well because I lived on a 32’ Piver in Redondo Beach for many years out on the moorings; the picture you see to the top left is my old 32’ Piver Tri.
Then I did my stretches; practiced my guitar; wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.
