Today my knee is 100% pain free! I’m healed!
Notice that today is April 1st, so April Fools! Yeah, it’s a dumb joke, one which even less believable than the year that I wrote that I met a woman at Publix. I wrote that sixteen years ago? Holy shit, the joke is on me as I am still alone.
As the calendar now displays April I feel as if pain will be my constant companion, unless I do something drastic (again).

I “think” that I have finally convinced the insurance company to pay the orthopedist. Next on the list of annoying tasks is to convince the State that Sharpened Stone, LLC has been dissolved (for years!) so that they stop pestering me with annual notices about lack of sales tax filings.

The weather in Atlanta certainly isn’t fooling around today, it’s going to be a cold one. At lunchtime I am going to go out to WLF and put frost covers on the plants (looks like I was smart to buy these covers after all!) and I think that I will pull in the plants that are currently in my makeshift cold frame. My plants’ growth are already annoyingly stunted, this cold snap is not going to help.

I may be (finally) giving up on the notion of attempting to repair my tv and buying a new one today. Tomorrow the new A/V stereo receiver that I have ordered should be available for pickup at Best Buy. And because I am adding RAM to the configuration, the predicted shipping date for my desired MacBook Air is during Spring Tune Up (no bueno), so once I am guaranteed that it won’t arrive while I am away I will be placing an order for one of those as well. Money is being spent! Big Change is afoot! No fooling about that.

Stay warm. Remain healthy. Make it a great day.

  1. I am now starting to get really angry when I see how large people’s plants grew in the same planting medium that I sowed my seeds. “When my plants got to 4-inches tall…” FOUR INCHES? FOR FUCK’S SAKE, MINE ARE STILL SHORTER THAN TWO INCHES!!! 😑 Clearly I’ve done it wrong.

    • Bob says:

      Nah, only thing you have done wrong is assume you would get it right the first time πŸ™‚ There are way too many variables to get the same results you see on YouTube. Time, temp, moisture, light, experience, etc. Learn from it and keep moving forward.
      Just my 2 cents for whatever that is worth

    • I do make a lot of assumptions. And as we all know when you assume… πŸ˜‚

  2. Steve says:

    Bob has much wisdom, grasshopper- you would be wise to listen.

    By the time I checked in yesterday it was evening and no point in commenting, much.

    Except for sketchy weather on the return trip, it was a worthwhile trip. Walked all the data and security closets with the consulting engineer. Got on the same page regarding how to connect everything, and did a few chores while our usual tech is out on FMLA.

    Lunch was a real treat as the kitchen had made schnitzel!! Not in my honor, but still. Served with an Alabama white BBQ sauce- quite tasty.

    And now that I have my final Covid shot lined up for tomorrow, the bank finally secured 200 doses for any employees who would like it. FCFS. I’ll be heading to Columbus in the morning.

    Hour record attempt is confirmed. Now just hammering out the details.

    -FP

    • The more who get vaccinated, the better I suppose.

      Good that your trip went well and that the hour record attempt is confirmed.

      Also confirmed is Jackson Brevet in June. Making another assumption that my knee will continue to allow me to ride a bicycle, I will probably sign up for this June event sometime in the near future.

  3. Quick tour around WLF and it appears that everything survived last night. I will be putting frost covering on this afternoon just to ensure that they survive the second blast of cold air overnight.

    It’s chilly and very breezy out there. No surprise a new array of sweetgum balls litter my property.

  4. Trying to figure out if I can save the $20 recycling fee for my broken TV by parting it out. I can take the remote and circuit boards to CHaRM for free, wondering if I can use the frame and panel for something in WLF? No, this is not an April Fool joke, I just don’t want to have to pay $20 to recycle a TV.
