“Don’t let yourself only love one thing. Because if you only love one thing and then that one thing goes away, well, then you are left with nothing, and that sucks.”
– from S2E3 of “Only Murders in the Building”
I solved today’s Wordle in five attempts; my starter today was CABIN. I have not been a stellar Wordle player lately.
There is a strange link between my starter and today’s correct answer. It probably won’t impress you, especially in print, but I may explain tomorrow.
NYT Mini Crossword in 44 seconds. Had a wrong guess trip me up.
A weird night.
After watching yesterday’s TdF stage, Debbie went out to feed the horses and I was about to fix dinner when her cellphone rang. A frantic call from our friend Nicole saying her horses were in trouble and send Debbie right away. Debbie flies over, calls back in an hour or so reporting they are on their way to the vet school at Auburn (not good). I drive over in Debbie’s truck to get my car back and meet the local vet just packing up. Apparently the horses escaped the farm, ran across the street and one got clotheslined by the guy wire on a phone pole. The other must have stepped in a hole or something and was “3 legged lame”. The vet didn’t seem too worried and they were off to Auburn “just to be safe”.
Debbie crawled into bed about 02:30, I think.
Other than that, just your average night!
Cobbles on the TdF stage today- no spoilers please.
Good grief, man. I have had experiences like that with dogs, but horses have to be an entirely different level.
Great quote, Paulie.
Wordle in 4 for a change today, starting with CRANE, which like CABIN didn’t do any favors.
NYT Mini in 50 seconds, there was a word that I have never seen before and thought for sure it some made up word to fit the grid, but nope, it’s real. So my vocabulary got a touch bigger. No chance in hell on Heardle today.
I’m walking around like Herman Munster, apparently one should train before attempting a 10K at this age. Who knew? 😉
1 across in the mini? It was my mistake, and I have never seen that word.
It was 5 across that was new to me. 1 across was no big deal given my previous 3 years in the Navy.
Ah, I knew “reune” immediately, though iOS tells me that it is not a word. Huh. I put “hull” I to 1 across, not knowing the word “prow”.
Mini in a little over 2 minutes.
Wordle in 5…….
Never heard that Heardle song before, so of course I jsut skipped thru it all.
I was going to ask for a spoiler free day too.
Wordle took me 3 tries to get 1 letter, but I got it in 5.
Some days Wordle feels like “Grind it ’til you find it.”
Three hours of sweaty WLF work done, mostly harvest a poor crop of potatoes. Good thing I am only trying to feed myself…
Forgot today’s TdF stage is the cobble stage so I will watch replay tonight. No spoilers please.
a friend in Tybee used grow bags for his potatoes – I was impressed with his crop he just harvested. The one time I attempted potatoes it was pitiful. I’ve decided the farmers market is easier (& cheaper)
back from the Periodontist – the implants look good, I go back again in 3 months, then get to get the crowns. it will be about a year for this whole process.
My 92 year old Dad had to have a tooth extracted or something yesterday. He got sedated. Good times for him (& my brother). the blood thinners made it tough to stop the bleeding, and getting him to keep biting down on the gauze was challenging.
Kaleb arrives this afternoon, the rest of the clan get here late tonight. Time to start entertaining…….. and we have a few more hours to finish the cleaning. OCD hubby is on a roll this morning.
I was gifted this shirt yesterday by my buddy BWANA.
Also, my new hair dye, “old man gray”, works very well!
That’s a hoot!
No sign yet of Debbie… imagine she’s almost awake.
They put a roundabout at Monroe / Armour Dr, that’s going to cause a lot of consternation…
Is that at the bottom of the hill or up by the bowling alley?
Bottom of the hill where it goes under the interstate (to get to Sweetwater Brewing).
love it! but there will be quite a few people freaking out……..
Sally for beat in her age group by a guy much younger than her. (obviously with a race bib that wasn’t his). The discussion on FB is cracking me up, as I’m not a racer. I really never thought so much about the timing chips, etc. before.
I must have bumped into something while hiking on Sunday because there is a spot on my left forearm that is itching like a motherf*cker.
