Barking Happy Lenny

Every morning I get up, let the dogs out into the yard, get the catfood ready for the outdoor cats, grab the leashes, go outside, feed the cats and walk the dogs.

When Lenny sees me with the leashes, he starts barking with excitement. Then I yell at him “No Barking!” And we’re both waking the neighbors up. I try not to yell, but he’s soooo annoying.

I said I’d never get one o those anti-barking collars, but now I’m thinking about getting one. Give me one with a button I can press and I’d zap the hell out of him. He’s been the most difficult dog to train that I’ve ever seen. Not that I’m an expert.

The advice on the internet to teach a dog to stop barking seems stupid. “First teach him to bark on command, then teach him to not bark.”

Glad it’s Friday.Not particulalrl exctied about the weekend, wife’s gone, but it’s still a weekend.

Have a great day! And weekend!!!

Over Achiever

Eggo Frozen Waffles

Yesterday, the wife flew from here to Ft. Lauderdale, then from Ft. Lauderdale to San Diego. She landed in San Diego about 1AM Cayman time. I was awake and sent her a WhatsApp message15 minutes before she landed, but apparently, I fell asleep before she replied.

Then, I woke up about 3 AM, and and got out of bed about 4. (It’s 5:24 right now.) Now I’m getting really sleepy. I needed some good sleep, because there were things I wanted to get done today.

It is super windy and fairly cold right now. I can’t understand it. Nothing was in the weather report about a cold front moving through.

This is not what I intended for this post. Not sure what I had planned, but this isn’t in. My method, when I don’t have a pre-determined topic, is just start typing and then come up with the title later.

Anyway, I’m probably going to take a nap. I’ll have gotten up, taken a nap, and gotten back up again, all before most people even get up the first time. I’m kinda an over-acheiver like that….

Have a great day!

Royal Visit, Wife To SD

Today I’m taking the wife to work with me. She needs a ride to the airport, and I work at the airport. How convienent! She’s going to San Diego for a work related conference.

Today Prince Charles, Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall  arrive in Cayman for a visit and, among other things, to open the new airport.

Traffic will be horrendous. It would be a good day to scooter, but can’t. But… TOMORROW IS A SPECIAL PRINCE HOLIDAY!! Looking forward to it. Thanks Your Majesty!

Have a great day!

New Boss Day

Today our new boss starts. I was quite liking the old boss, so I hope I like the new boss. The old boss says I’ll like the new boss, so I can only assume it’s true. The old boss was temporary, from the beginning. The Who have a son with the line “Meet the new boss, Same as the old boss”. I hope it’s true.

Tomorrow the Wife goes to San Diego on a business trip. As soon as she gets back, it will be time to start getting ready for COSTA RICA!!!! I haven’t been in about two (or three) years, so I’m super-excited.

I switched back to the Logitech 480 Keyboard from the Samsung. The Logitech is superior.

Pura Vida!

Fake News From Mars?

happy monday y’all. Not quite as perky as “Happy Friday Y’all!“, not perky at all.

Is the above fake news? How come this isn’t all over the big media? I read the article, and it seems to say there probably is life on Mars, but the headline indicates “Look, here’s a picture of fungi on Mars”. I’ll have to really peruse the article, as of right now, it’s merely fodder for my blog.

It was a somewhat productive weekend. I installed a shelf over the door of my workshop/storeroom. Fixed a major drywall problem in the bedroom.

Also I added a new page to this blog, Ratings. Restaurant reviews and tourist attractions and my opinions of places. So far, it’s just screenshots from my TripAdvisor account. Still under construction, but viewable.

Last night I went to bed early, slept well, and I’m still exhausted this morning. The weather is indeterminate, I don’t know whether to take the van or the scooter. “When in doubt, van it out”, I always say.

Have a great week!

Happy Friday Y’all!

Happy Friday! A weird thing happened on my keyboard yesterday. The and the @ switched places. Yup, press shift and 2 and you get and press shift and ‘ and you get @. Anybody ever heard of that? There’s nothing on the internet about it.

Here it’s clear, and windy. And cold! I’m wearing a jacket. I rekkon I’ll ride the scooter this morning, but thinking about the van because of the comfort feature. But thinking about the discomfort of the heavy traffic on the ride home, makes me indecisive. I won’t know till I pick up my keys on the way out. (I have a separate keyring for my scooter.)

I’m glad it’s Friday. I have outdoor projects planned unless it rains, (which it might) and an indoor project if it does.

Now I’m at work. I was typing this and all of a sudden, my “go to work” alarm went off, surprising me. Time certainly is flying!

Have a great weekend!

The Photo Contest

This month, a WhatsApp group of us have been having a photo challenge. Submit a pic a day with the above topic. It’s been pretty fun. Here’s my pic for today, “Happy Place”.

My back porch, in the sun.

I like this picture. I would have (obviously) taken a pic of the beach, or the sea, but I like the shadow of the slats of the chair.

Cloudy here, very windy. Cold front moved through last night.

It’s Thursday. Been a quick week, which is good. Tomorrows payday!

Have a WONDERFUL day!

Humpty Dumpty

Light at the north and south poles.

Tomorrow is the equinox. One of the two “Hump Days” of the earth. The sun moves into the northern hemisphere sometime today or tomorrow. Start of the longer days, warmer waters. (Here in the summer, the water temp is about 86 degrees F, but in the winter, it plummets to 82 F! Brrrr!)

Yesterday, I received my building permit for the downstairs addition on the house. Hopefully, and quite probably construction will take less time than getting the permit! Hopefully, it costs less too!

Looking back over the past few days, my posts seem pretty negative to me. Not really an accurate depiction f how I generally feel throughout the day. Overall, I know my life is fantastic.

Today, is another dentists appointment, to finish a root canal started last time. Then pull my broken tooth, and get ready for the implant. And two caps. I should be in tip-top shape after that! Hopefully, home additionn construction costs less than all my recent dental work! Ha Ha!

Have a great day!

Continuation of Crabbiness

Yesterday, my post indicated that I wasn’t in a good mood, but I failed to describe why.

I used to run and swim every morning. Now I just walk the dogs. I really liked running and swimming. I used to stop on the way home from work every day, and swim the half mile. Then I started having to have to come home in hopes dogs haven’t peed all over the place.

How did I get shenaggled into this? I can’t tell you the last time I set foot on Seven Mile Beach. I still go to the beach at lunchtime, but it’s only an hour.

It’s nobody’s fault but mine. It’s like I just quit, and am blaming others.

I used to dive every weekend, sometimes after work. When’s the last time I posted an underwater photo here?

I need to get off my damn dead ass.

The Teacup Theory

My brain is floating in a teacup filled with clear water. There’s a tiny littlee pump and a tiny little filter that slowly circulates the water and cleans it.

When I get angry, it’s like someone threw a teabag in the teacup, and the water gets all brown.

Brown water = anger.

Even when the source of the anger goes away, (someone takes the teabag out of the teacup), I stay angry for a while, because it takes a while for the tiny pump and tiny filter to clean the tea-water until it’s clear again.

My theory is that anger is just some chemical squirted out by the brain.

What’s really distrubing, is that this morning, I did an image search for “Human brain floating in a teacup” and got no results.

Have a great week!
