I’m far from “better” but today is not a day for whining about my life.

At least I now know that the haze I have been seeing the past two days is smoke from North Georgia wildfires and not the onset of glaucoma. Unfortunately neither one is good.

I am in Athens finishing up a hotel breakfast (read “free”, or at least “built into the cost of the room”) before heading home.

This trip was not without issue. On the drive over, about twenty miles outside of Athens, the M6’s Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) came on again. This is the second time it has erroneously illuminated. When I pulled into a gas station and checked the tires all four we equally sufficiently inflated. Ugh. I will be monitoring the monitoring system on my drive home.

The Bob Mould concert at Georgia Theater, and not at 40 Watt as I blogged yesterday, was really good and over by 11pm. The early start/end was good for the geriatrics like me in the crowd. Mould who was a contributor to “30 Days, 30 Song”, songs against Trump (sorry, I slipped up) was full of piss and vinegar last night. The band played an assortment of songs from Hüsker Dü, Sugar, as well as his solo catalog. As an added bonus my hotel was in walking distance to downtown Athens Sinai could drink my sorrows away.

RIP Leonard Cohen.

Many thanks all of US veterans.

UGA has a home game this weekend so I need to get out of Athens before their fans arrive. Gator and Bulldog supporters get along only slightly better than Clinton and Trump supporters. Dammit, I just can’t stop!

Have a great weekend.

    A quiet evening puttering in the mancave and getting a good sweat going on the trainer. Nothing much on the schedule today.

    Thanks today to dad, an aircraft electrician and my mom, who helped assemble B-17 engines for the war effort. My brother Jim did tours in Europe before being sent to Saudi at the start of Desert Storm. They served with honor to keep America free. Thanks to all the other vets as well. You service and sacrifice is a debt that can never be repaid.

    Happy Friday.

    I went & met with a friend last night that knows a lot about resumes & job searching (she also works at Home Depot – a place that is not too far from me to look for a new job.)
    She gave me some ideas on how to change things up, and how the online resume needs to match words – so I need to tweek the resume for every application. Had a great chat.
    Its time for me to ramp up my job search & find something new – as this place will never change.

    Tonight is Hash happy hour up here in Marietta, Delkwood Grill – so MC has required our presence.

    Trying to decide if we driver to Lake Lanier tomorrow morning for Gill North America sale -they have such awesome stuff, but I don’t really need any new jackets, etc, and always spend too much money. I always find some things I totally love though. And – thet stuff does last forever. And – they have plenty of things in Allan’s size. Such decisions.

  3. Dammit. I’m a few miles away from home and the TPMS light just came on again. Looks like I’m headed to the dealership. What’s fun.

    Just go to a tire place Paulie – they can figure it out.
    Discount Tire was awesome when I needed mine figured out.

  5. The reason I take it to the dealer did because the car should still be under warranty. Therefore if anything is wrong it should be replaced for free. Unfortunately the dealer is completely booked today, so I am headed home for now. I may try again tomorrow.

  6. And now some new weirdness as the screen on the entertainment system stopped updating. I’d change from Bluetooth to FM and the audio would change, but the screen didn’t so it appeared as if the audio were coming from a Bluetooth source.

    Not my week…

  7. Barb says:

    if there are more things – then sure – go to the dealership.

    but if its just tires -with the temperature changes, mine comes on & off occasionally. I just run past the tire place, they do free air checks at Discount Tire. If its nothing, its free, if its more, you don’t have to buy, you can leave.

    HamWithCam – I may email you next week – I’ve never really looked for a job in over 20 years.
