Yes, it is snowing. And it's piling up too. YAY US. (As I pull on my snow boots to be able to shovel the nasty stuff). Ah. Now where are those reindeer when you need them? I had my blood panel yesterday and by 3PM, it had already been posted. I've improved since last fall. I'll have to wait till Thursday when I see the Dry to see how he interprets the report, but it looks good to me.
Yup. It's winter. Icy sidewalks, driveways. Streets packed with hard unmovable snow packs. yup, its winter. I hope this will be a short lived winter snow storm. This is the week of Rds. first a blood panel tomorrow, followed by a visit to the Dr. to hear the results. And then wait to hear when my appointment is ready for the vaccine. This was a very productive week. Got the roof repaired, looking for the fence to be fixed. Took the vhf-uhf antenna down. A few ground radials were bent, but they should be able to be straightened out. I hope.
Seems, that antenna has jumped almost $100.00 in less than 2 years! Yeah, ok,. sure. you bet.
ah, I feel good. Watched the changing of the leaders, rolled out the carts, through icy snow covered driveway. I looked at the work the really talented roofers did on my roof. Man, they are good. The fence isn't so hot. My antenna isn't so good now either. Maybe I should decide if I want to replace the existing antenna, a dual bander, or get a monobander, for UHF. Things to think about. Today is a happy day.
STAY SAFE WE'RE ALMOST OVER THIS.
I'm off and smiling.
I woke up to the sound of a truck door shutting. Yup. The roofers were back at it. 9 hours yesterday, and about 3 hours today. They replaced the entire west side of my roof. Wow. Now to inspect the hustler antenna. I'm afraid it might be beyond repairing. I'll know later on today. Today was hard on the cat. Every time he'd jump on my lap, one of the workers would come to the front door. Jump down and wait till he's gone. Then jump back up. Repeater once more. Poor cat. Now he's lying on my bed scanning outside for his pals to show up.
Three more days, and then we can begin a new chapter. Hopefully, it will be clearer, more responsive to us. Time to pay the piper, I’m reading the pages for the next newsletter. I just hope nothing major happens between now and the final print. What a year(s) it's started to be. I had several surprises this past weekend. An old friend had a baby, bought a house and is cooped up in her house, due to the virus. Goodness, what changes can happen. For this Sunday, I'm going to watch either, GOT, Hobbit or LOTR. All are over 3 hours long, except GOT, that’s 8 seasons. And I watched every minute of it. Good show.
STAY SAFE WEAR THE MASK.
Yup. I've been late in writing, but then again, it's been a very busy week over here. It's going to take me time to sort out all that has occurred around here and in our country. But the roofer did call and will mend the rood next week. The singles have already been dropped off. Now all I have to do is check out the Hustler VHF/UHF antenna. A radon design, I'm not familiar with how to mend that kind of antenna.
Today is sleep in Saturday. Ha ha ha. Scooter the cat had other ideas. he always does.
STAY SAFE WEAR THE MASK.
Yup. That was one hell of a way to greet 2021. And more to come??? Me? I thought last week I would join Frank in using a wheel chair. But, the arthritis left and now I’m just starting to get the joints back to working again. YAY ME. Today, the roofers are repairing my roof from last November’s tree accident. Now, I have to check out the antenna and discover what the damage is: new antenna, or repair the old? I've never worked on a radon antenna before. Should be a great learning experience. I hope it doesn't stop at my wallet!!
Ok, net tonight.
STAY SAFE WHERE THE MASK
Yes, think about it. We were oh so close to becoming a dictatorship. The V.P was there, so was the speakers of the House and Senate. What would have been left? Yeah. That is what has kept me up at night since Wednesday. Food for thought?
STAY SAFE DO WEAR THE MASK. If not for you, for your loved ones.
This was one heck of a way to begin a new year! I don't know what to do, laugh, cry, both, or just get stinking drunk! Maybe, all of the above! I really don't know what to say. I pray the "BAD" time is over with. Now, the rebuilding begins. We really can, "MAKE AMERICA SAFE AGAIN". It will take a lot of work. The damage over the past 4 years goes deep. But, we're Americans, WE CAN DO IT.
So STAY SAFE. We're almost there just a tad more.
Finally, goodbye 2020. Now let’s start this decade off right. No property taxes, No income taxes, pay raises all around. YAY us. Ah....wouldn't that all be nice. I'm confronting this decade by ......saving my pennies.. Oh well. I'm writing this just before the ice storm hits us. For 12 hours or more! Time to look for a snow plowing service. My arthritis hasn't gotten worse (ok ok. it just upgraded itself). But I’m coming around. it is getting better. Hey, I’m getting to become "OLD". Interesting. I'm still thinking, feeling the same as I did as a kid. But with eyes that have seen through life. This is what wisdom must be like?
HAPPY NEW YEARS
May 2021 be oh so much better than 2020.
I love you all. Spread the word.
