Another day, another skipping of a hash because the start was not published anywhere but the Facebooks. To be fair, I also skipped because I assumed that the rain would wash the trail away — apparently it did not. I hoped that by not hashing the past two days I’d have a favorable weigh-in today — spoiler alert, I did not.
I felt fortunate to beat the rain yesterday afternoon and get outside to sow some seeds, mainly greens, for my fall WLF garden.
The rain, which has seemingly been falling heavily and non-stop all night, will by daylight have thoroughly soaked WLF and filled all of my catchment containers to the brim. If there is any break in the rain later I will go outside and pour water from the catchment trays into jugs for future WLF watering needs.

A couple of months ago I became deprived of my favorite British tellie game shows because the YouTube accounts which were hosting them were shut down. Last night I was unable to sleep and I went on a virtual adventure on YouTube looking to find the shows again — and I did! While watching one of the game shows there was a reference to Maria McKee, which naturally led me to do a Google search to see what has happened to her during the past 35 years. Turns out, she’s not been tearing up the music charts the way she once did, however, I found out is that today is Maria McKee’s 57th birthday. I had no idea that Maria McKee is only a year older than I am.
Due to the rain I think I will be spending my day primarily inside choring. I certainly have plenty of chores which I have been neglecting by going outside to do my WLF choring.
Hope you have a dry, healthy, and happy day.
Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 183.4 (+3.6 pounds from last week’s weigh-in); Rats! I was hoping the magic of choring would save me, but I knew I have been eating and drinking too much.
