Suddenly, yesterday and today, my new phone is only showing half way charged after charging all night. I can’t handle any phone problems right now.
Yesterday was Bruce Day, On June 13, 1991 I saw my brother alive for the last time. He came down to visit me when I lived in Virginia and we went to VA Beach. We had some hamburgers on the boardwalk. Later in the early afternoon, he went back up to Maryland, then on to Connecticut, where he lived. Less than a month later, he and his girlfriend, Karen Vinnik, would be tragically murdered in Tuscon Arizona.
I think my memory is failing, because I can’t remember him arriving in Virginia, I can’t remember if he stayed at my apartment. I wrote soon after his funeral that I never wanted this memory to fade, that last day together, the funeral, and all the feelings. I never wanted them to fade, I wanted time to stop, and hope that it would go backwards. Now there’s bits of memory missing…
I didn’t forget that it was yesterday, but yesterday I planned on posting it today as a Flashback Friday, but today, Flashback Friday seems too cheap for my Brothers memory.
Have a good weekend!
Is it possible to become allergic to bread and water? Lately when I drink water on an empty stomach, (I drink a lot of water) I get an instant stomach ache. And lately when I eat bread (I think it’s bread causing it.) it feels like my stomach swells and it would pop if you poked it with a pin.
Bread I could give up, water… not so easy.
I guess it’s just a phase that will pass.
Have you ever heard of this?
I went to bed last night at 7:30. The Wife went to bachelorette party. Now it’s 3:30 and I am awake.
Here is a video I took of a blue gecko. He thought he was hot stuff.
It was November 2000, I went to the grocery store and got some grapes, There were seeded grapes and seedless grapes next to each other. I wanted seedless but got the ones with seeds somehow. They were terrible grapes with tons of seeds, but they tasted good..
Soooo. the next morning I got my divorce papers and the whole mess was over. (We were married about a year and together about 6 months, and getting married the first time was the biggest mistake of my life, the only thing in my life that I would un-do) And the process, while difficult, was not as bad as it could have been. I was happy and grateful. After I went to the lawyers and got the papers, then went to the beach. I took some grapes.
I was sitting on the beach, saying “Thank you God for the divorce and thank you for bringing me through it”. Then I ate a grape, forgetting they had seeds, “Crunch cruch, awww crap!” Then I said “God, now, if you’d take the seeds out of these grapes, then my day would be complete! Ha ha! Not really God, just kidding, I know you don’t do stuff like that, just thanks for the divorce”.
Not another grape in that bunch had seeds. I know why.
I ended up going for the Nexus 7 with the Sharkk keyboard. I figured there’s nothing yet to replace my laptop, but I can replace my Kindle and use my laptop less. I ordered them on Amazon and should get them next week.
yes, it’s the same picture again.
The first tropical storm has formed, Andrea. Here we go. Andrea came from the system that gave us that rain last week.
I guess I’ll be mowing the yard this weekend., but the grass is gone, all that’s left are the weeds. Starting over….
Have a good Thursday!
Lately, it’s been hard to post in the mornings. I think I’ll switch to evening posts for awhile. I wake up, take care of the animals, shower shave make coffee get dressed and drink coffee and I have a hard time posting. SO I’m posting again tonight and tomorrow morning I’m doing something different. Dunno what, but something different.
Here’s a short underwater video of the sun, from about 50 feet. I don’t know why I think this is so cool.
We had some good rain last night, all night. It’s still raining now. Let’s keep it up for awhile.
Today is Tuesday, but it is also the first day of the work week.. Tomorrow is a holiday because it’s election day.
Yesterday morning I shoveled a dead chicken that was in the road. Yesterday evening, while feeding the cats, I noticed a peeping sound like baby chickens. I found five baby chicks, barely bigger than an egg, huddled in the yard. After watching for awhile, to make sure there was no mommy chicken around, The wife and I collected them and put them in a box.
They ate quite a bit, and drank water and then went to sleep.
Yesterday we also went snorkeling at a place called Pageant Beach. There is a shipwreck there..It was good sun and snorkeling.
The wreck of the Gamma, on Pageant Beach
Also, here’s a quite long video swimming around the wreck. See the propeller?
I’m running late, gotta go!
