If you read my post of yesterday you might have noticed that I had written the wrong date; it has now been corrected. Thanks Joan for bringing this mistake to my notice.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 54 and 78 degrees, light breeze, humidity around 22 percent, clear skies.According to the National Weather Service: “Wednesday: Sunny, with a high near 85. West wind 6 to 9 mph becoming east northeast.
Wednesday Night: Mostly clear, with a low around 52. West southwest wind between 6 and 8 mph.”
I went over to Mac’s house to help him bleed the brake lines on his tike. Unfortunately something was wrong with the solenoid and it wouldn’t pump up any pressure to bleed. He gave me half of a banana cream pie for helping out!
On my drive back home I noticed my neighbor Ginger working on her front gate and went over to assist her. She didn’t have the right tools for the job but I carry tools in the Gross Polluter and had the gate bolted up and working in no time.
I was just starting to lay more tiles down when Mat called saying he had made a solar panel and wanted me to drop by and have a look-see. What he did was connect two Uni-Solar flat roofing panels into a metal frame for mounting on a pole. I was mighty impressed!
I got back home and started laying tiles in the bedroom after moving everything around. It’s mighty hard to lay tile when you’re living in the place you’re tiling. I did almost half the bedroom and will move everything over to what I had finished tomorrow when it has dried. Then I tile the rest of it.
I went for my evening walk and then went over to Stoney’s to help him finish off the rice and beans. We watched “Dirty Jobs” on the Science Channel, about; mobile home demolition, working at a manikin factory, and working at a camel ranch which was very amusing! I now know more about camels than I ever wanted to know.
Back home again I watched “My Name is Earl” which always lifts my spirits. Then I had to choose between “NCIS”, “NOVA”, or the new series “V”
. I chose “V” on ABC just to see if it was like the “V” that came out in 1984. It seems to run along the same story line but more sophisticated in its execution and special effects.
I did my stretches and went for a night run; fixed the string on my guitar and practiced for a spell; wrote my column for the newspaper and sent it in; wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.
