While sitting at 6S Brewing in downtown Duluth I thought about ordering dinner from their neighbor, the now incorrectly named O4W Pizza, who once held residence in Old Fourth Ward. The prices I saw on their online order form scared me away.
I solved today’s Wordle in five attempts; my starter today was LEMON, in honor of the candy flavor which paid me $40 yesterday, funding my beer.
Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 188.4 pounds (0.0 from last week’s weigh-in); acceptable all things considered, though I am going to make a concerted effort to lose weight during the coming weeks.
Wordle in 5 starting with TAXES. Mini in 42.
I swear every year I’ll get my income taxes filed in the spring, and just about every year it happens in the fall. May the circle be unbroken.
I’m sure you taxes are a little more complicated than mine are – so I guess delaying it happens.
They’re not terribly complicated, but yeah, there’s corporate returns (those are done, now it’s the personal return to complete). There is information that I have to gather that I could do better about not scattering to the wind in my office and setting up a situation where I have to track it down again. I did break my arm in February this year, so that is a legit reason to be late this year.

Did it on my phone which slowed me.
2 plus minutes on Mini – and – I think I do better on my phone than the computer, I’m always typing letters in the wrong squares.
I can’t imagine NOT doing the Mini on my phone.
It’s not easy, but my iPad was on the charger so the iPhone was the next best thing near by.
Wordle in 5 starting with TREAD (not recommended.) Mini done.
After work, I seeded and watered where the trees were removed. I had arranged to borrow neighbor Steve’s aerator, but we decided doing that before the hurricane would be a bad plan. The horses found me and were having fun in the sprinkler. Or rolling in the freshly turned dirt. PITA’s
Speaking of hurricanes, how’s mom doing and does she have a plan?
Spoke to her yesterday. She’s going to weather the storm at home, with a couple of others. She went to the grocery store and stocked up, her house is cinder block, and her neighborhood drains well, so I think she’ll be alright
Sounds like this hurricane Ian could be a doozy in FL – my good friend Mary who lives in St Pete is going to weather it at home, they aren’t in a mandatory evacuation area, and – her husband is a prepper type of guy, so they have plenty of supplies. She just said she needs to get more beer, just in case.
Haven’t heard from Cheese Spread yet in Punta Gorda, but they are always traveling, so they probably aren’t even at home.
Friends further south is Fort Myers seem to be ready but not afraid.
Want a reminder that the years are rolling past? I got a ping from Linked In to congratulate Sue Hintze on 20 YEARS at her current job. JEEZE LOUISE!!
Yep, they are indeed.
when I saw her a few months ago, I know she was contemplating retiring.
Wordle in 4 – I beat all y’all – I’m so lucky sometimes with my guesses.
We are trying to plan a 60th anniversary party for my parents next Friday – a happy hour late afternoon little party. My brother likes to have ideas that he will never execute, my sister has lots of ideas, but I seem to have to do all the work. I’ve had to get phone#s, then call their friends – which is always interesting, since I don’t really know most of these people. But – little by little we are getting there. I need to get a cake ordered.
When dad turned 90, we had relatives send us pictures of him from days gone by. It was really special. An option? I know time is short…
Steve – I’ll put my sister on that….. hahahahahaha
We will find a framed wedding photo to have on the table.
maybe we will find other pictures – we will see.
I have nothing to report, didn’t do anything yesterday. The new fridge is real nice.
Wordle in 5 starting with SALET again. Mini in :44
Nice quiet birthday day which was nice after two weeks of celebrations with friends. I’m too old to have birthday parties on non-milestone birthdays.
I have our marching orders on post-hurricane seed planting from my go-to farmer friend. He called to remind me to borrow his aerator. I love our little community.
