It may be odd to read that an unemployed person is glad to have a morning with nothing to do except relax, and eat breakfast. I have decided to give myself a day off from the rat race that I live these days.

I solved today’s Wordle in four attempts; my starter today was CHEAT

  1. NYT Mini Crossword in 62 seconds.

    Heardle fail.

      Wordle in 4 –
      total Mini fail (had to google)
      Heardle – had actually heard of the song after I skipped thru it all to see who it was.

  2. Traded bicycle for lawnmower this morning. Front grass is now cut.

    It’s another humid morning inside the perimeter.

    Wordle in 3 (WOOT!).

    The mattress guys made it here just in time for the rain. The very gingerly backed down the length of the driveway, which seemed pretty dumb to me. The bed is quite comfy and we will find just the right angle to sleep at. We’ll see if Debbie had a good nights’ sleep.

    Except for multiple laundry loads of bedclothes, I was pretty much a slug all day, and I’m OK with that.

    Nothing booked for the weekend (that I’m aware of)…


    • Barb says:

      what brand of mattress did you buy? with all the new companies out there and so many “bed in a box” choices, I’m always interested. We spent the big bucks on a Sleep Number, not sure it is really worth the money, but Allan likes a softer bed than I do, so, it works.

      • Steve says:

        A Beautyrest Pressure Smart. Kinda middle of the road, price wise. I think with the machinery and delivery/setup/takeaway, it’s about $2500. 2 years, no interest. (24% after that, or don’t pay it off!!)

  4. Barb says:

    Brewery Road is playing at Schoolhouse this evening – so I think we will go to that.
    I’m wondering if there’s a food truck, I messaged the brewery – no response yet. I guess I can go old school & call over there later.

    Allan is at a CPR class today, I think he has to teach it (I don’t pay attention sometimes)

    Set up a Amazon FireStick yesterday for the in-laws – Mary asked me if Prime, Prime Video & Amazon were the same thing. I was so confused – when it comes to the TV here – yes. If you are trying to order something to ship to your house – no. Their U-Verse TV DVR is on the fritz, someone from AT&T is coming back again today. Sounds like the DVR is obsolete (which means ours is too) & once it breaks, we need to move to a different system. If I see the truck over there today, I may go & talk to the guy to see what’s up.

    Last night’s Wordle in 3 using LEAST. I’ll take it!

    The couple I wanted to win, did win the Amazing Race! Now the long, cold, lonely winter until they come out with another season. Side note: it’s crazy that Travelocity is STILL their biggest sponsor. Who the fuck uses Travelocity anymore?!

    The big event this weekend is that we’ve got a guy coming over to put together our home gym. We have the floor mats, weights, barbells, and a full rack, all in boxes. Should be lifting weights at home by next week! I hope. Then we’re going to the Braves game on Sunday.

    • Barb says:

      I’m not sure who uses Travelocity – but obviously someone still does if they can afford that sponsorship.

      Home gym – sounds like an adventure.

      • Jenka says:

        During the pandemic I discovered that junk food and Netflix are much more fun than working out. Who knew! I put on at least 30 pounds, as did Kevin. I can’t run anymore because of my knees, and I can’t seem to drag my ass to the gym. It’ll be so convenient to do 20 minutes of weights after I put dinner in the oven!

        • Steve says:

          Jenka, you’re a better man than I!! I’ve tried to lift, both freeweights and machines and just could never get much out of it. The Bank has a full workout area with lots of stuff, and I just go ride the bike or run the treadmill.

          • Jenka says:

            Yeah, the thing about lifting is you have to be consistent, which is really hard. Otherwise you don’t see results. Since I can’t seem to consistently go to the gym (which, by the way, is right across the street from my office), I am hopeful that I’ll get 2-3 sessions in per week. Even if they are short, that’s more than I’m doing now.

  6. Debbie says:

    Wordle in 4 starting with WRONG. Mini in 1:12

    Woke without a headache or neck and back pain. Winning!

    I rode my horse the first time since my fall last night. Felt good other than a little PTSD about him spooking. I usually stick on pretty well, but he’s got a move that I can’t stay with – he lunges straight out from under me. He’s only done it twice in 1.5 years, but both times left me pretty injured.

    No big plans for the weekend and that’s okay.

  7. David says:

    Huh, the blog doesn’t want me to post today for some reason. Paulie, feel you gotta feed the hamsters that live in the server! 😉

  8. Fucking A. Driving to meet friends I saw the DOT installed an All Way stop on Ridgecrest between Dekalb and East Lake. That street already has a 25mph speed limit, and speed humps. In fact, driving from Dekalb Av to East Lake Dr the stop sign is at a speed hump. Who does the DOT think they are, the Supreme Court?

  9. Steve says:

    Of all the nerve…

    David, I’ve found Paulie’s servers don’t like some sort of special character combinations and thinks I’m trying to talk the secret server code with them. I start deleting lines to see what has it hung up. Damn technology..

    • David says:

      I get it when I’m posting links, but when it’s all text and no special characters it’s frustrating when it gets lost in the mail. Oh well. I think the universe is trying to tell me to get my ass in gear and get some work done instead.
