Rainy Friday

It’s a cold rainy Friday. It’s been raining for days. I’ve been driving the car not the motorcycle all week.
I haven’t been to the beach since Monday at lunch time.

I’ve discovered I don’t care about the weekends if it’s going to be raining,

I just deleted a long rant about work because it was not appropriate for this blog. I try to remain politically neutral here.

I’m going to get going now, and wish you a happy weekend.

I think foul weather makes me insane.

The Dark Side

I took my Mom to the airport yesterday, she made it home safely. That’s why I didn’t get a chance to post yesterday. Yesterday was the first day back to work, oh joy.

My watch battery died yesterday, I’m lost. Now all three of my watches are out of commission.

I’ve been to work one day and I have three days to go. But at least it’s hump day!

Sometimes I find my bad attitude frightening. I can’t find a pair of pants in the morning and I get angry. The dogs want to go for a walk and it’s a huge conspiracy. Is it possible for someone to have a job they enjoy, with competent people who aren’t trying to stab them in the back? I feel like a crazy person sometimes.

This post isn’t  coming out like I planned. I planned on posting some pictures and a happy post. I notice the word “yesterday” several times above. Today should be a pretty good day. The weather is nice and I should be outdoors a lot.

The wifes ankle seems to be getting better. The swelling has gone down quite a bit and I can tell it hurts less.

I’m starting to get up earlier to study my course, this morning I didn’t study because of unforseen delays, but soon I will start. Once I start I won’t quit til it’s finished.

Have a good day, I feel better now after talking to you. Thanks

Bring the weekend!

Today is Payday, my pay is already spent, to say the least. I hope the check is big enough to cover the bills.

Here’s a pic of the plane taking off from Grand Cayman. I’ve probably already have posted a very similar photo, but I’m not going to go look for it. It was a good trip, productive workwise, and fun.

I feel like I’ve been a terrible blogger lately, like I haven’t been putting time or thought into my posts. Have to work on that.

Not Too Thrilled

Camera 14MP-9PCAbout going into work this morning. First day after vacation.

I was going to post pictures from the vacation, but looking through my collection, you’ve seen most of them already.Above is the in laws kayaking.

This is the first post I’ve posted from my computer in a long time, months.

I have a lot of blog reading and commenting to catch up on in the next couple of days. It will take me a while to get back in the work groove.

Anyway, have a good week, I’ll be back!

Five Days and a Wake Up

image

Monday morning again, it’s hazy and gray. The sun coming up this morning looks just like the sun did setting last night. I don’t ever recall any weather quite like this in Cayman. Breezy yet hot.

Five days and a wake up till vacation. Very eager to go.

It was forecast to be windy this weekend, so I didn’t take the boat out. It didn’t turn out to be so bad. I need a trailer hitch, so I have some independence.

I mowed the yard yesterday, and The Wife did some landscaping. Looks goooooooood!

Have a good week.

Thursday Thoughts

Yesterday I got my Nexus 7. I’m typing this on that.So far, I like it, but I’ve barely started using it after charging the battery.
Yesterday I also got an email from Trip Advisor, asking me to remove my link to their site from my November 10th, 2010 post. First I said no, but The Wife said “why not?” so I said “why not?” too and took it off. The post was a good review of Tim Buk Tuu restaurant here in West Bay, Grand Cayman. The email said that my link was reducing traffic to their link. I doubt it.
I’m glad the weekend is almost here, and glad today is payday.

Friday Flashback

I was stoked to post  my Flashback Friday this morning. But my computer screen went dead again for the first time since the other day.
That’s my flashback, my screen going dead the other day…. and today. Wow, far out! Trippy man!
Have a good weekend! Still raining here!

Bloglines Must Go!

bloglinesAfter Google Reader went under, I had to find a replacement reader. I was pretty happy with Bloglines. But apparently, they made a change for the worse. I think they quit giving out cookies, so that if I go to the page, I have to log in. If I leave the page and come back, I have to log in again, even if I didn’t close my browser. So I have to re-log in. Even if I have Bloglines open in one window, and open another window, it still comes up to the log on page.. I have everything set so that I stay logged in all the time on my computer. Bloglines is the only one screwing up, and it’s screwing up on more than one computer.

I’m not going to bother trying to contact them. I asked for help earlier and got no response. I wanted to sort my feeds alphabetically, that was my question. I got the standard auto reply, but nothing since.

So screw ‘em. Another good company ruins it’s product with upgrades. It’s a pity that companies don’t need to listen to their customers.

I feel like everything I post lately is negative. I need to address that.

 

No Rain Here

Monday again. The weather for this weekend just finished called for rain rain rain. There were big dark clouds and thunder all weekend but no rain here. Maybe a hundredth of an inch.

Wanna hear something funny? I can’t find the log on link for my blog , I have it at work but not here. I’m posting this on my phone. But, on the other hand,  my computer seems to be working much better with the new hard drive. Think about it, the hard drive is the only moving part on the computer. When things get weird, try a new hard drive.

Bought a new lawnmower this weekend. ANOTHER new lawnmower. I wrote down the serial number and etched my name in the metal. This one better not get ripped off…
It’s so dry and dusty that I don’t want to mow. All the “grass” is gone and just the straggly weeds are left. Like a balding guy trying to hide his baldness,  you look and you can see the dirt through the “grass”.

It’s a holiday in the USA but not here. I’m going to work. ..

Computer Died

Yesterday I replaced the hard drive on my computer, installed the OS and had it going, looking good.
This morning I started ‘er up to post my post and the display went dead. Seems to be fukt.
But I’m not going to mess with it now.
I’ve needed a new laptop for a long time, so has The Wife.
Looks like we might get some rain today.

Friday!
