  1. Have not yet attempted Heardle or NYT Mini Crossword

  2. Steve says:

    Wordle in 4, could have been 3, Mini in about 2.5.

    A long meeting, a long drive, a short sleep, and another drive… and I’m back in the office.

    I’m pooped.


  3. David says:

    Last four letters in place in 4 starting with LEAST, third spin of the letter wheel got me there in 6.

    Mini in 1:07. Heardle in 1 sec. Band is outstanding in concert.

    My 9 year old cat dropped dead suddenly yesterday. Ringo was his clowny orange and white self yesterday morning, sitting on my chest and putting his face in mine like he would do every morning, and then midday he was gone. Heart attack.

    • Barb says:

      holy cow David! That’s so sad about your cat.

      • David says:

        Thank you, Barb. He was the youngest of our four pets (2 dogs, 2 cats). We sure didn’t see this coming.

    • Steve says:

      Very sorry to hear this.

      • David says:

        Thank you, Steve. I’m sure you know that feeling of expecting a face to come around the corner any second, but it won’t ever happen again.

        • Debbie says:

          I’m so sorry David. They never live long enough, but it’s particularly hard to loose young ones.

          • David says:

            Thank you, Debbie. Yes, it’s easy to get lured in to thinking the young ones will be around for ever. Starting to reach for Ringo’s food bowl this morning was such a stab to the heart. 🙁

    • That’s very sad, David. Sorry to hear about that.

      • David says:

        Thank you, Paulie. It’s just tragic. My 13 year old son found him first, and then went and told my daughter, and then she told me. I’m glad I was home for them. I would have been in a yoga class at the time, but it got rescheduled. Life is funny that way sometimes.

        Similarly, I had planned to spend a week in Yellowstone this year, but didn’t because I broke my arm. The height of the flooding in Yellowstone occurred the week I would have been out there. It worked out after all, but there was no way to know in advance.

    • Bob says:

      Sorry man, pets are family and I know how much it hurts. Specially when it is unexpected.

      • David says:

        Thanks, Bob. Pets are most definitely family. Yes, the suddenness definitely magnifies the grief. I’ve been working on being more present in general, and less in my head so I’m grateful that I put my phone down the night before last and paid attention to him when he got on my chest, instead of trying to see around his head. You just never know when a moment like that will be the last one.

  4. Barb says:

    time to play games finally this morning.

    Wordle in 3 – using Paulie’s start word – but did we use the same 2nd word? I bet not?

    Heardle – as usual – recognized it, but can’t come up with the artist & title.
    70s – fail
    80s #1 Hits – 1 second – I know my cheesy 80s. and yes – I listened to the whole song.
    80s – should have known, but didn’t
    90s – didn’t recognize for a few seconds – but that’s ok, I don’t feel bad about it.
    00s- I really should get to know this artist a little better

    Mini – I don’t want to talk about how bad that was.

  5. M6 key fob giving me grief again. May have to switch to second fob when I get home. I really done want to spend the money for a new key fob…

    • David says:

      Does it have a replaceable battery? I know mine do.

      • It does, and I put a “new” battery in recently. I have a newer pack of batteries that I will use when I get home. After nearly eight years of daily use, really seven if you discount 2020, it may be time for it to be retired.

        • Bob says:

          Retire the key fob or the car? Did the car come with 2 fobs? They usually do. Try using the other fob for a while and see what happens.

        • David says:

          I’m with Bob, try the other fob for a while. Particularly if this fob has a magnet in it that you can still start the car with, so that this “dead” fob becomes your back-up fob.

  6. Bob says:

    So my neighbor is up to more shenanigans. When she didn’t get her desired result by calling the city on me she waited for the a new HOA board to get voted in. Apparently she hand wrote a 2 page letter talking about how all my neighbors dislike my camper. This is 100% false because I actually talk to my neighbors and none of them have any problem with my camper. Now I get to go to the HOA meeting tonight where I am on the agenda, fun!
    I do like our HOA, they have not ever overstepped that I know of. I also bumped in to the HOA president in Home Depot yesterday and we had an unofficial talk about it. Basically he said don’t worry, we will work something out.

  7. Debbie says:

    Wordle in 5. I had the first 3 letters right on my second word and then things went downhill. Mini in 59 seconds.

    I’m currently procrastinating on my departure for Nashville. I didn’t get much sleep last night so the drive feels a little daunting. I’m sure once I get some caffeine on board, I’ll get motivated.

    On the horse sale front, I’ve now got two people coming to look at her early next week. Both would be good homes. The lady coming Monday is one of the most renowned masters of foxhounds in the country – no pressure there. She’s bringing her trailer and a check. Hopefully it’s a fit.

    • Steve says:

      I saw this and immediately thought of David! Woulda killed it!

    • David says:

      LOL, when I was younger, yes. I’m too old for that shit now. But thank you, guys. That’s awesome. Excel was actually on ESPN this past weekend, so the times they are a’changin’!

  8. Just saw a HUGE hawk in one of WLF’s trees. It was so large I thought it was Owlie.
