a nice, pleasent, cool, a tad breezy Sunday.

Now this is how summer should be. Laid back, cool, pleasant, with just a touch of a breeze. Did I mention the lawn has been mowed? Well, I did that Friday. YAY ME. Now I can relax a tad and get ready for "busy" Blue Monday". So far, my only plan on Monday is to get out of bed. I'll plan a little later on what else to accomplish later on. Particular, after I have my morning coffee. One should not plan too much till you've had that first cup of coffee.  Disaster surely will follow if you plan too much. Let the coffee beans do their trick.
Ok, time to get with it, whatever with it means.
STAY SAFE WEAR THE MASK. We need you.

Happy First of August, 2020

Yes, we've made it. August first. Now only 5 months till Christmas. And S.N.O.W. YES. To celebrate the last day of July, I mowed the lawn. And attempted to mow the back yard. No go. Got work to do yet. Today is a rest and hold the cat day. He got his nails caught in the bedding against last night. But I freed him and within half an hour, he was happy again. My neighbor invited me over to see her newly painted porch and rocking chairs. I also got to hold her pooch. Great way to spend a TGIF.
Ok, now off to R and R. (Rest and hold the cat)
STAY SAFE. IT"S SCARY OUT THERE.

ah, TGIF. The last day of July.

What a month July has been. Now we're finally on a nice month of cooler than normal temps and really low humidity. Ah.....and, it's TGIF. What more could you ask for. Today, being national Lawn mowing month (I made that up), is when I should mow the lawn. I said should.  I've got a date with emptying the cat's litter box first. The cat told me so. Cats are like that.
I just spent a lot of time looking over where to get Covud=19 tests. What a nightmare! My gosh, most seem to be drive through tests, which are ok, but picking out where to go, that’s difficult. Why doesn't are Dr.s offer the test?
That reminds me, call the Dr Today too. If it isn’t one thing......
Well, it is TGIF, so enjoy the beautiful weather.
STAY SAFE WEAR THE MASK. It can save other lives.

ah, beautiful "HUMP DAY".

WE MADE IT. Yup. It's HUMP DAY.  We're half way there. Yes, TGIF. Big Deal.  My plans for today, is to enjoy the beautiful weather we're having right now. If you haven't noticed, we've been losing a few minutes of sunshine each day.  Friday is the first day of August. Where does the time go? Today is me putting on the hat of editor. YAY me. But it should be easy this time. Should be. Famous last words?
I'm doing the laundry right now. How in the world did I ever get to the point of having to do two loads of laundry a week? It's just me and the cat!
Oh well.
STAY SAFE.WEAR THE MASK. IT"S OUR PROTECTION.

"The Eternal Lost Lurker". R.I.P.

It's hard to believe that people you've known for a long time, are no longer here. A guy I met on USERNET, back in 1990 or so, passed away last year. I just found out about it last week. He was a writer, a lover of anime and had a creative mind unlike any I’ve met since. But then again, most of the folks I met back then, have moved on. Me too.
I remember when the Japanese anime, "BIG O", first came on here in the states, He described the mecha as “The love child between the statue of Liberty and a steam locomotive". That was the Lurker!  That’s gone now, except for the memories. I wonder what memories we all will leave behind.
STAY SAFE YOU’RE IMPORTANT TO THIS WORLD.

Yup. this is exactly the right weather to watch "BLACKLAGOON".

I decided to watch "Black Lagoon" last night, not realizing it was that long. It’s also that good. I'm trying to plan on how to plan on living in high temps and high humidity weather. We’ve got 3 days of this non-sense ahead of us.  Then, hard to imagine, fall is right around the corner? Yup. Next week at this time, it will be August 1st.  I've been good cleaning up the back yard, but, there's so much more to do.
Well, hope all of you can find a nice cool spot to rest in over the next 3 days. Yuck.
STAY SAFE.PEASE, WEAR THOSE MASKS, and YOUR important to us.

Yes, indeedy. it is TGIF

TGIF and that means, we try to survive the HOT, HUMID weekend. Then the rain. YUCK. It's a good thing I've got indoors things to acomplish, like getting the latest QRM out. I've had a request and a bunch of articles for it. It's nice when it all falls into place. I didn't have to fight or beg once. Now thats saying something.
For TGIF, i think i'll sleep in wtth the cat. He's getting old, like me and likes to hug and snuggle more each week.
Ok, time to go.
STAY SAFE. PLEASE DO.

yeah, its "HUMP DAY". Big Deal.

I don't hear any marching bands, or parades going by. I guess being "HUMP DAY", isn't as important as I thought. But here we are. Planning on how to get out of going outside and trimming the branches and limbs. I don't really want to go out today. I know I have to do it, but still.....
I discovered the good folks at Adobe downloaded my Acrobat Standard XI, and I didn't even realize it. "THANK YOU".  Most if not all company's do not provide installation discs anymore. It's all from the cloud. Oh boy!!!!!
Good luck with that.
Today is also make out a grocery list. "Do you need anything?"   Not that the store would probably stock what you need, but you never know.
Ok, time to procrastination about doing outside. Again.

STAY SAFE THIS VIRUS IS REAL AND NASTY> YOU DON"T WANT IT.

Hey, it's "SEAWASP",s Birthday. Happy 34th.

Well, there. I just lost the working page I was ready to post here. There's a difference between copy and paste. Don't mix those two up... Really enjoyed yesterday. Mowed the lawn, did the laundry, helped convert a pdf page to a written page, so my friends brail reader could convert it. All in all, a great day. Really enjoyed the summer with my pal on my front porch. Ah. Nothing like it. I didn't even miss the neighborhood soundtrack of kids (well, yeah, I did kind of miss that), power mowers and trimmers. But a great day.
Today, I have oodles to do and don't know where to start first. Oh well. I’ll work through it.
Ok.
STAY SAFE DO WEAR THE MASK.
