Latest Happenings

This page will be my week to week chronicle of our life adventures (or lack of).  Each week (most likely Saturday morning) the page content will be saved to the hard drive and a flash drive.  Then the page will be deleted and the new week will begin.

...having fried Huckleberry Gold potatoes, slab of ham, fried egg, and an icy cold glass of milk.

12:00 noon.  Cloudy and 51 F degrees.

October 15, 2017  (Sunday)

Good morning!  It's 8:00 am.  Clear and 41 F degrees.  Looks like it's going to be a nice one!

Time to face...

...the inevitable seasonal changes.

By God if my wife wants steak and eggs for brunch...

...then that's what she is gonna get!  Served to her in the recliner with a smile on my face and a twinkle in my eyes.  ;-)  Love you honna!

Last nice weather day for a while by looking at the forecast.  Sooooo...I better get Chance out for a walk at Rasar.

A little fun, a little sun, a little play in the river, some autumn colors, and some high altitude snow off in the distance on Sauk.!  Nice wander!

Checking out the new sunglasses on this last sunny day for a while.

Jude got a fire going in the backyard pit.  Chili and dogs on the fire for dinner tonight.  Mom used to enjoy siting around the firepit so I just had to scribble a short note wishing her an early Happy Birthday (Oct. 20) and toss it in the fire hoping the breeze and smoke would carry our wishes to her in heaven.  We love and miss you mom.  God bless...

Oh yeahhhh.  Goodnight!

October 16, 2017  (Monday)

9:15 am.  Cloudy and 49 F degrees.  The first of the autumn storms is supposed to be approaching.  Calling for wind and rain the foreseeable future.  Also getting ready for that first power outage.

Yep.  Looks like they are lining up out in the Pacific.  :-(  Just read an article that says the clouds stretch from China to the Puget Sound.  They are calling it "The Big Dark".

In case of a power outage:  Got the horse trough pulled into the backyard and filled with water to flush the toilets, brought the bottled drinking water in, fresh batteries in the flameless candles/flashlights/headlamps, cell phones charged, battery/handcrank AM/FM radio at the ready, 'The Bird House' can be used for cooking if need be, putting things that might blow around away like the porch umbrella...

...a good day for some more Robert Plant.

1:40 pm.  57 F degrees and the rain has arrived.

October 17, 2017  (Tuesday)

8:15 am.  Windy, rainy, and 57 F degrees.  The power has blinked off and on twice already.

So much for sweeping off the deck yesterday.
