  1. NYT Mini Crossword in 39 seconds.

    Heardle fail.

  2. David says:

    Flight to Indianapolis was delayed by about an hour. The pilot said “we’re gonna lay the ears back on this puppy” and he wasn’t kidding. We landed about 30 minutes after the scheduled arrival time.

    Wordle in 5 starting with WINDY. Heardle fail across the board, although I would have been able to name the 70s song, but not the artist.

    • David says:

      Oh yeah, forgot to mention 32 seconds on NYT Mini.

      I am killing time this morning until my presentation starts at 11:05.

  3. Steve says:

    Wordle in 5 and I was glad to get it. Would be a good day for AISLE as a starter, Barb.

    Lola wasn’t feeling good yesterday when the farm sitter checked on them. As I didn’t want to come home to the smell of soiled dog, I came home at lunch and she seemed fine. Later in the afternoon, she finally let loose, but I was able to get her outside first.

    A nice, but hot walk in the evening to catch up on my podcasts. I don’t know what I’ll do when they finally stop sending out old “Car Talk” episodes. As old as the shows are, they still make me laugh.

    David, what’s in Indianapolis? I mean besides the Major Taylor Velodrome?


    • David says:

      I’m speaking on Excel at a CPA conference this morning. This afternoon my brother, who lives 90 minutes north, is driving down to pick my kids and me up and then after an overnight stay in his town we’re spending two nights in Chicago. This gets me out of needing a rental car, thankfully.

      Speaking of Chicago, the band, not the city, was playing in a venue a mile away last night, and they were TIGHT from from the couple of songs I heard. You never can tell with a band that’s been around for 55 years.

      • Steve says:

        Very cool.

        I was always a fan of Chicago. Any time you can mix horns and R&R is a great sound, IMHO.

        • David says:

          Those horns were killing it on 25 or 6 to 4 for sure. It’s flat as fuck up here, so no surprise that the sound carried so well. No obstructions.

      • Barb says:

        Chicago is a really good band, the original guys are still great, and the replacement guys are excellent. Peter Cetera left so long ago, and they just kept turning out music. (Chicago 16, 17 & 18 were my 80s albums)

      • Bob says:

        I had a connection with Chicago and have always enjoyed their music. Growing up in Illinois my parents were friends with the parents of Terry Kath. Terry died in a tragic (stupid) accident and my parents were there for his family.

  4. Waiting out the rain at the Waschsalon. Clothes are done, don’t want them to get soaked again.

    Hoping this is all of the rain today, I am volunteering with Trees Atlanta tonight.

    Also hoping no rain tomorrow morning since I want to take a long bike ride somewhere.

    • Shouldn’t bitch too much about the rain since I just received my highest water bill in years, probably from watering WLF.

      • Steve says:

        I don’t miss a water bill, but the power bill last month was a new record- almost $400.

        Today’s stage is on my list for a motorcycle ride. stunningly beautiful. 2 HC climbs today with a Cat 1 in the middle for some relief! hahahahahaha

        • David says:

          You probably get your power from an EMC, but Georgia Power started offering a flat billing option a few years ago that just rocks. My power bill is the same every month all year long. Any adjustments up or down roll into the next year’s flat bill payment. Our bill has gone down a few dollars a month each year since we replaced our A/C unit. I sure don’t miss the sticker shock of summer power bills.

          • Barb says:

            I have Cobb EMC, they just started the budget billing. I’ve used it for my gas bill forever. I LOVE it as well. So nice to be the same every month.

        • My A/C has run much more this summer than last to the point at which I am concerned that I should make a service call to ensure it hasn’t leaked all of its coolant.

          • David says:

            You have a newish unit, right? Coolant leaks shouldn’t be a concern unless you find that it’s not cooling your house.

            I haven’t seen the movie Don’t Look Up yet, but this clip of the movie paired with a real life interview has convinced me that I should watch it:


            You truly cannot make this stuff up.

          • New unit bought in 2020. I worry that there is a leak in the between the blower and compressor. I doubt seriously that this line was replaced, they probably just hooked up the units expecting it to be fine. House, which is REALLY poorly insulated, cools very slowly this year. It seems as if it spent more time dehumidifying last year. Probably will set up a maintenance call for August, even though regular maintenance check was done in May.

          • David says:

            I’d get it checked out for sure then. You don’t want to mess around with not having A/C because the heat sticks around through October these days.

          • Barb says:

            David- Don’t Look Up is an excellent movie – and that clip is perfect with it. Thanks for sharing.

      • David says:

        My water bill was higher than usual this month too. Not sure why. Trees Atlanta is such a great cause. I’ve only volunteered with them once. I should do more of that. In the spare time that I don’t have. Thanks for helping make our city better!

        • I used to be a Trees Atlanta regular, and then I started hashing… I’ve been back once in 2019 for Old Timers Day, it was a lot of fun. Tonight is a small group doing two hours of weeding followed by some social time.

          • David says:

            This sounds like exactly what you should be up to these days. Kudos.

          • Barb says:

            that sounds like a great idea Paulie- start with a group you used to hang out with. You never know who you might meet! Or, just have fun.

    • Barb says:

      I think Davey & I are still meeting for a later lunch (1pm ish – we haven’t set a time yet) if you want to meet us tomorrow. I mean, it is your birthday, you ought to come make 1 of us buy you lunch.

  5. Storming heavily in Midtown again.

  6. Bob says:

    David, Don’t Look Up is a lot like Idiocracy. It is so outlandish and super scary that it is all coming true. I would say watch it but be warned you may be angry afterwards.

    • David says:

      I do fear for my children, that is for sure. I’m choosy about movies because I often want my time back afterwards. I’ll give this one a go though, and especially now that I’m forewarned.

  7. Steve says:

    Report from the vet is Tanners eye looks great. No more meds and he will be back out in a couple weeks to remove stitches.

  8. Steve says:

    Frustrated with work as they don’t like the form I completed for work to be performed next week because I didn’t use THEIR model record. F’ers. I hate paperwork.

    We could get the bills under control if somebody didn’t want the house so cold she sits under a blanket to watch TV. Don’t get me started.

  9. David says:

    Another presentation in the books. I’m out of my monkey suit and ready for a fun weekend!

  10. “Watching” today’s stage replay. I wonder what the over/under in Vegas was for riders tour with COVID.
