I was told yesterday to stop wallowing. So, I scrapped my initial draft of today’s blog and am going to be positive.

Saturday I had a lovely walk with Betsy and Bella, and then at night drove up to Marietta and ate Tasty China on the Deck Mahal.

Yesterday I attended my 200th Black Sheep hash, and got my patch. We trudged though a boatload of poison ivy so I hope that the hosing off prior to getting in the swimming pool, and the chlorine in the pool counteracted it. Now to ensure that I don’t accidentally get it by touching the clothes I wore yesterday…

Rain arriving this week, bad for BRAG Lite training, but much needed in WLF.

I solved today’s Wordle in two attempts; my starter today was CHASE

  1. NYT Mini Crossword in 49 seconds. One of the answers today was ironically my Wordle starter which I chose prior to doing the Mini.

  2. Probably should have gotten on the roof and cleaned the gutters prior to the rain. D’oh!

    Friday’s bike ride was my only one for the weekend. Sad.

    Saturday, worked the Brooks Road Race on the scooter. By the end of it, I was ready to head home- glad there were only 2 waves of races. The bike ran well.

    Sunday, we headed down to Plains to meet a Airedale breeder we’re thinking about buying from. We’re standing out in his kennels and the storm is starting up, winds really blowing and we hear CRACK and a big tree starts falling towards his building attached to the kennel. It got hung up in another tree, but that was exciting!!

    I think the rain is out already, but it rained most of the night (we sure needed it). All the fields driving South yesterday looked parched.

    Congratulations on 200 BS. “Get a life, get a life, get a life life life!”

    Congratulations on the hashing milestone.

    That was cogent advice to stop wallowing. Keeping the wound open by wallowing mostly serves to just keep the wound open. It also creates tunnel vision that can keep you from seeking new opportunities that may arise.

    Weekend was pretty busy.
    Friday night Sal & I caught up on Survivor, final episode is Wednesday, so we may watch it Thursday night.
    Saturday we went trail riding at Allatoona Creek, stopped at Culvers for a burger on the way home (to make Stacy jealous & its a tasty burger) then Tasty China on the deck with Paulie & Kevin. Kevin brought a nice bottle of bourbon for Allan’s collection – we of course had to try it.
    Sunday I opted out of doing the actual hash trail, went on a little walk with a few people before getting to the pool. Good crowd, of course the circle went on too long, but we did get a decent name for Claudia – Udder Chaos.

  6. Still waiting for power restoration. Last big outage like this for me was Halloween 2020!

    Now I think the rain has finally stopped. The horses were out in the pasture eating, so they think it’s stopped for a while.

    Trying to make an appointment to have my hearing checked (WHAT!?) and to see if I can do something about it long term…

    • I assume we in the southern part of ITP have no more than two hours of rain coming.

      Oh, and speaking of coming, the electric just returned! Woot!

      Good luck with your hearing. Many years of unprotected loud concerts has me wondering about my hearing future.

      • And now I await the return of internet service…

          • Steve says:

            I can be completely in the dark, and still be connected (at least for a few hours).

            This house is wired for a generator (the transfer switch is in place) but it was long gone when we got here. I’ve thought about getting a generator, but our power is pretty stable. Maybe it was worse when the house was first built?

          • Things are actually better today than they were a decade ago, probably due to the added housing that has been built around me.

            If I had a generator transfer switch I’d own a generator, mostly due to winter storms. Of course now I own a propane heater so I can at least stay warm.

          • David says:

            If you’re already set up for it I’d get a generator for sure. Those rolling blackouts in Texas when the grid got stressed where a harbinger rather than an anomaly. From what I’ve read this summer could get ugly across the southeast.

    Wordle in 3 starting with my trusty AISLE

    I agree we should get a generator.

    This morning was the return of the prodigal barn cat. There was much rejoicing. We’ve got three, but only two of them are really friendly. It was one of the friendlies that never made an appearance yesterday. I still didn’t see him this morning and was going to search for remains, but when I went back in the shop he was there yowling for his breakfast.

    Back from camping in Brevard. Every time I go up there I remember our ride up over Ceaser Head to my mothers house we did forever ago. Went to Oskar Blues, rode Dupont, and went to The Hub for post ride festivities. Cooked dinner and breakfast for 9 on the blackstone. Amazing weekend, I love that place.

    Attempted Heardle, had no chance.

  10. Back from Aldi where I bought $45 worth of “essentials”. First pseudo-real grocery store run in weeks, I can see that prices are indeed climbing. And sadly they were out of stock on at least three items I normally purchase.
