It's Happy Monday.

Happy Monday, because, it's not Hump Day? This is Happy also because we're having much lower dew point and temps. Till next weekend, that is. As for right now, it's almost time to mow the lawn and start doing Blue Monday kind of stuff: laundry, dishes, hug the cat. But, I can think of other things to occupy my time, like designing the web site. Still not completely sure of how I want it to look. The cat has an idea. But cats always do, don't them.
Ok.
STAY SAFE IT"Is THE BEST MEDICINE WE HAVE RIGHT NOW.

Now that was Natures natural alarm clock. Thunder.

My goodness. I got woke up by a scared cat and thunder. I didn't see any rain fall here then, but it came later. All 5 drops of it! But the humidity is down, and that’s good. Now as for today. Let’s see, yawn, scratch head, hug and hold the cat. Now that should take me up to lunch. Then hold the cat, while he takes a nap. Must hold cat perfectly still while he's snoozing. Then listen to Leo LaPort, the tech guy on Wood radio. Should be on between 3PM to 6PM.  Oh my, then its supper time. My oh my. Where did the time go!
Ok, not sure what'll I do today. Cool off I guess is the best thing to do.
STAY SAFE WEAR THE MASK, It'll protect YOU and ME.

Hey, its miwasatoshi Birthday today.

Figures, he's have a birthday on what is supposed to be the hottest day of 2020. "Happy Birthday miwasatoshi
Today is definitely a day NOT to do very much work outside. With a heat index of 100 or so. Yeah, I can always find something to keep me busy inside. I hope you all have a nice, cool day. NO WORK.
Scooter the cat is smarter than any of us: he's sound asleep on my bed next to the AC. What an animal! While I just had a late breakfast, I'm already thinking of having a beefsteak tomato for lunch. Yum.
Ok, just keep cool and don't work hard, if at all.
STAY SAFE WEAR A MASK WE NEED YOU.

yup. it's TGIF. Today is good. tomorrow.....

TGIF. YAY us. Tomorrow, we'll know what a pot roast feels like when it’s cooking. Yuck. So to celebrate this glorious weather, I had radishes, and a tomato for a snack. YUM. No sandwich, just a plain bunch of radishes and a whole tomato. Ok, a little salt, but otherwise, it was a summer meal! Now if only I could find a "Beefsteak" tomato. Dream on. The antennas are coming. Well, the FM commercial broadcast antenna. I've already got the vhf-uhf. And now, I've got the backyard so we can almost walk in it. Still a lot of cutting to do. I also have to decide what weight I want to get down to. 198 or 200??? My Dr. wants me to get to 199.00. Dr.s!!! We’ll see.
Ok, Enjoy the beautiful weekend.
But, STAY SAFE, DO WEAR THE MASK.

So today we start, The Great Heat Wave of 2020.

"Are you ready?"  Today starts our Great Heat Wave of 2020. Heat indexes of 100, maybe. Humidity WAY up there. Here we go.  The nice part was we experienced a nice, gentle rain last night. Then just as I was having a nice pleasant dream, the garbage truck woke me up: he came early. Oh well. Today is laundry day, grocery day, and maybe, just maybe, going out to breakfast day.  The guys went out last night and had liver and onions!  The nerve! They didn't tell me either. The last time I had liver and onions was at Ducks restaurant, on Michigan st and Diamond. That was over 20 years ago.  Maybe next week?
As for now.
STAY SAFE DO WEAR THE MASK and keep a distance of 6 feet. There's a valid reason for this.

It's "HUMP DAY" and also, Here comes the second wave of HOT weather

Ah, Hump Day will never be the same. It seems like all it does is herald in one Heat Wave after another. Now today, we'll start off with storms later on, and then, presto, back in the old nature oven. Yay us. (Did you also notice we're losing minutes of daylight now?)
But yesterday was a great day. Got a bunch of junk sawed off, trimmed a lot more and sawed a huge log. So, yes, yesterday was a good day. Now today, I'll finish some of this stuff up before the storms come by later today. And.....the city is re-paving the side streets. Cool. Nothing like the hot odor of tar to keep ones nose clear.
Ok, time to go.
STAY SAFE, ITS GETTING WORSE OUT THERE.

Now Monday was the day.

Man, I sure got a lot done yesterday. Laundry, sawed some more branches, raked up all the loose debris. Today, I think I’ll just sit on the front porch and pat myself on the back, "FOR YESTERDAYS WORK".  Retirement is fun, right kids? Now today, I’ve got a lot of stuff to do, and probably will do it. Probably. Maybe. I'm trying to plan on getting all my outdoors work done before the "GREAT HEAT WAVE OF 2020" gets here this coming Friday-through????. Mid 90's and above. Ah, I remember the wonderful days of sweating so hard you had to wipe sweat away from your eyes so you could see.  And we've got over 10 days of that stuff coming this way. YAY US.
Ok,

It's Happy, Blue Monday.

Yes, Monday means do the wash. Yuck. But it’s so much better than it was last week at this time.  I still have yard work to do, and I’ll get to it. But not right now. Today is antenna planning day. I thought I only had one antenna to get up, nope. Somebody has plans to get a commercial FM broadcast antenna up so I can get Jackson's classical FM station. I didn't know I was going to do that. The Cat and I went to bed early last night. No fireworks. YAY. I've been giving some thought to replace this smarty-pants phone. But WOW. There’s a big difference from 525 to 1025. That’s a lot of bucks. Do I need all that fancy stuff? Nope. Just a nice plain phone will do me nicely. Now to start looking.
Ok,
STAY SAFE DO WEAR THE MASK.

Now that was a pleasent summer evening.

My pal came over, and we sat on the front porch, watching what looked for the whole world, like a herd of Lightening bugs flashing everywhere.
But it was nice. A cool evening, sitting on the porch, talking about life, watching people go by, walking their dogs.  Good thing I couldn't find a movie to watch. This was a pleasant evening. Like we' used to spend. When I was a kid, going to music school during the summer, I would sleep on the front porch and glaze up into the butternut tree leaves. They looked for the whole world like palm tree leaves. Going to sleep listening to the cricket symphony was a treasure.  I didn't forget.
STAY SAFE WE LOVE YOU.

ah, a nice Saturday to sleep in. and I did!

This was one of those wonderful "Lets sleep in Saturdays". Felt so nice. With a meowing kitty trying his best to get me to move. But I didn't. A wonderful time we had. Then I spoiled it by telling Scooter the cat, I was going to mow the grass today. That did it. The cat got in my face and meowing me wide awake. I should have learned to shut up and keep my plans to myself.
I guess I should get with it. I and the grass isn’t getting any younger.....I also remembered we had a club meeting last night. Life has changed just about everything. Ok.
