I tried to start Wordle with BUENO today, but Wordle said “No Bueno”.

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

  1. Many thanks to Betsy for letting me know that I accidentally spilled the beans this morning by providing today’s answer as my starter. That gaffe has been corrected.

  2. Steve says:

    No Bueno! Funny. In 4 with a streak of 1 after the dreaded MUMMY yesterday! (SRSLY?) Mini in just over 2.

    A good but short weekend overall. 35 minutes on the trainer Saturday. Should have gotten outside but watched Syracuse at Clem’s son. Met my partner Burt for dinner at the swarming Taqueria los Hermanos. Always good, but a bit noisy.

    Sunday was a pretty lazy day. Rode the scooter to lunch and back, then the CX for 17 miles. Somehow managed to pull the other shoulder out of joint- not the one I have the appointment for Friday. Ugh, it sucks getting old.

    How’s mom?

    We kept busy over the weekend.
    Friday night wasn’t as cold out as expected – ate some brats out on the deck.

    Saturday morning we went for a walk figuring the hash would be short, & it was, just a walk around the lake, a little over 1.5 miles. Good turnout for the Tripod Memorial.
    Halloween party way up in Canton, our friends go way voer the top with the decorations.

    Sunday did a Kennesaw Mtn hike with Cheese Spread who was in from FL – haven’t gone up to the top in a while – 6.5 miles – it was a good workout. Her friend (a hasher from the 90s who has a daughter at Emory) joined us. Couple beers after at Red Hare before they headed to the airport.

    It was a lovely weather weekend.

    Wordle took me 5, but I got the Mini done in 49 seconds. Haven’t done it in less than in a minute in forever

  5. Apparently the Mint has redesigned the quarter? I deal with so little cash these days that I had no idea.

    • Steve says:

      The most recent release of new quarters… for a limited time. Get yours today, supplies are limited… 🙂

    • David says:

      What is this cash that you speak of? Clearly at this point making up new money designs is just make-work or a jobs program.

      • Barb says:

        I’m weird- I still use cash quite often. I need to look at my quarters now. (Aldi quarters are in the car ready to be used)

  6. David says:

    Wordle in six today starting with DREAD, which made the word of the day a bit too poetic. Mini in 55 seconds, you beat me Barb!

    I had a fever from the flu/COVID shots Friday night, which I planned for and slept through. I’m good with my body having a response, I like the assurance that I didn’t somehow get the placebo. 😉 I felt fine Saturday morning.

    I wanted to get on my bike this weekend but it didn’t work out. Maybe I’ll do a mid-day Beltline run as penance. I did get 7 miles of walking in between Saturday and Sunday. I also accomplished a lot of income tax planning, which reminds me of a random lyric from an old Alan Parsons Project song, “…what a great way to…have a good time.” I’ll have to see if I can remember what song that is. I haven’t thought about it in eons.

    Monday, Monday, I hate Mondays, getting the wheels rolling again.

    Oh, and I will take a moment to rant about GODDAMN KROGER. Today is my daughter’s birthday, and so I decided to make the box cake mix that we had in the house. First speed bump was I needed 1/2 cup of vegetable oil but only had 1/4 cup. I called my immediate neighbor, who was out of town. The next neighbor down hooked me up. So, all good, I proceeded with my cake. The next speed bump was one or both of my kids had eaten half of the frosting. My wife said she could make a chocolate ganache frosting tonight if she had heavy whipping cream. I didn’t think that would go with the cake I made, plus it turns out Rachel doesn’t like chocolate frosting. I discovered the lack of frosting at 9:59 PM, and Publix closes at 10:00. So, off to Glenwood Kroger I went. The normal door is locked, you have to in through the out door. Seriously? But whatever. I found the baking aisle, and eventually found the frosting section. I then decided to be the “dutiful” husband and get whipping cream anyway. So I walked the “Dairy” aisle three times to no avail. I learned long ago that Kroger doesn’t consider butter to be “Dairy” because they store that on the interior juice aisle. I gave up on finding whipping cream, maybe I should have looked in the automotive section for it. Every single interaction with Kroger runs a similar course for me, and reminds me why I hate fucking Kroger to pieces. Incidentally, my therapist said this morning that we can work on that at some point, meaning not have Kroger be so triggering to me. We’ll see, I still have a lot of other fish to fry ahead of that.

    • Ugh. I have my own (Glenwood) Kroger avoidance issue, but that is neither here nor there.

      Keep your chin up!

    • Barb says:

      David – that was a beautiful rant.
      Kroger doesn’t bother me that much, I go to a few different ones & different Publix stores too, and they all have items I need in different places. I just wander & wander & sometimes actually find an employee to tell me where to look, and we laugh about the ridiculous place they have it at their store.
      My closest Kroger (we call it ghetto Kroger) is super old & small, so they have no rhyme or reason where they have items. We are getting a brand new one next year down the street from it. I’ll never find anything. Same way with the Publix that is closest, its small & old too. I do the majority of my shopping at Aldi, mainly because its so small, my wandering doesn’t take quite so long.

      • David says:

        Thanks, Barb. Clearly, in a perfect world Kroger wouldn’t be so triggering to me, but sheesh! Is it really that hard to just put related items together? I think they’re employing so some sort of purposeful Rube Goldberg thinking intended to get me to spend more time in the store, but instead I’m avoiding that shit like the plague.

  7. Steve says:

    Our usual Kroger is just “not clean” and we try to avoid shopping there. Both Publix we can easily get to are superior, IMHO. We also have the option of a Ingles, which is technically the closest “full size” grocery. Don’t expect anything “fancy” there…

    • David says:

      I have walked right back out of the door from Kroger stores that have massive infestations of flies in the produce department. Nope, nope, nope, I’ll just go hungry first.

  8. Jenka says:

    This entire discussion makes me appreciate Instacart so much more.

    Successful weekend in that we went up to my childhood home and packed up those few items that I want to keep, and saw my dad and brother. Otherwise there were travel issues up the wazoo. Flight delay, multiple car rental issues, including a dead battery that we had to have jumped three times on Saturday. I may have to go up again when Dad makes the actual move in early November.

    But I had two bowls of clam chowder and that made me a happy woman!

    • David says:

      LOL, Instacart so does not work for me. Getting the wrong product or having to communicate with the shopper about substitutions is just no bueno. I am such a special snowflake! 😉

      Bummer about all of the travel issues. When it rains it pours, that’s for sure. Hopefully your next trip won’t be so damn snakebitten.

    • I actually enjoy grocery shopping. Weird, I know.

      Sorry you had issues, but at least you ate some decent clam chowder. I’m assuming it was Manhattan Clam Chowder? *ducks to avoid things being thrown*

    Wordle in 4 starting with AISLE

    Beautiful weekend weather-wise! Lots of horse time that wasn’t all that enjoyable, but no one got hurt so we’ll call it a win. We met the new folks leasing the property across from us, and they gave me permission to cross it all I’d like once deer season ends in mid-January. That will make my riding life much more convenient.

    Sorry you had to deal with Kroger David! Our regular Kroger has gone way downhill AND they redesigned the layout so I can’t find a damn thing. There’s a new Publix in Senoia that is becoming my new go-to. Publix is supposedly more expensive, but the BOGOs make me happy! I think their cleanliness and produce are far superior to Kroger in general. Ingles is clean but dated and the brand selection is pretty slim. I’m not a fan of shopping so being able to get in and out quickly is my key requirement!

    Glad you had some good family time Paulie. I’m way overdue in that regard. Life just gets so busy.

  10. Barb says:

    Get this – I’ve spent enough money on my credit card (that’s my guess) & I’ve flown just enough that I just got upgraded to Platinum Medallion with Delta. What the heck???
    Not sure what that status will really get me, (I know free upgrades to Comfort or First class, but those seats usually go to the real heavy hitter fliers)
    But hey – I’ve never felt like I’d ever get above the lowest level (silver), so when I got Gold, I thought, well that’s cool. Now I’m Platinum? Who’d have thunk it.

  11. Still getting email notifications for last week’s comments. Have yet to get a notification for any comment left today. Ugh.
