I apparently missed a helluva Super Bowl ending. When I purchased a new tv for the Florida house on Saturday it never dawned on me that I wouldn’t be able to pick up CBS using an antenna. I was able to watch the first half in Spanish on Univision, but the picture kept breaking up at halftime so I turned the game off.

Wordle: two, my starter was SUPER
Connections: two mistakes (and I struggled a lot), Yellow > Purple > Blue > Green

  1. Sorry, spending time talking with ITP-Reader Ronnie (aka my brother) and forgot it is Monday.

    Wordle in 3, yesterday was also in 3. We won’t speak about Conniptions.

    We rocked it on Saturday. Starting at 8 and were done by noon. Afternoon nap, then some serious hot tub time. Lifting the switches into place was hard on my back.

    Sunday was breakfast at Flying Biscuit in PTC. I get it, but I don’t think it’s all that. Then a trip to Sams Club to join. Costco sells gas but not diesel. Sam’s sells diesel and apparently it’s 30 cents lower than street prices, so the membership will pay for itself. I don’t see a point in having 2 memberships, but we’ll see.

    We watched the game and were glad it finally got good. 4th quarter and OT was good football- the rest, not so much.

    Debbie just dumped 5 inches out of the rain gauge. And it’s still raining…

    • I haven’t been impressed by Flying Biscuit in many years. Once it franchised, its appeal for me.

      Wow, that’s a lot of rain!

    • David says:

      Flying Biscuit is a pale shadow of what it used t be back in the day.

        speaking of breakfast – I went to a local place called Oscar’s with a high school friend Sunday morning.
        Found out it was owned by another Regis grad that Edy knows, I didn’t really remember her. (I have been gone 40 years & she wasn’t in my class). One of her daughters waited on us – great service even before she knew her mom knew Edy.

        and – I need to go make some avocado toast.

  3. In Friday I received an email telling me that a password reset for this blog was request. I doubt that I did this…

  4. Barb says:

    PAULIE – didn’t you get some home internet?
    Did you even try CBS.com ?

  5. Sally says:

    I beat Paulie this morning to his won blog. lol

    I did so good with Wordle this week-end with dueces. It took me 5 guesses this morning starting with ALONE. 3 mistakes in Connections: Yellow, green, blue, purple.

    So much rain and still raining. Need to get the dogs out for a walk before work. They don’t mind the rain and take their time smelling everything.

    Had a group run from the store Saturday morning. Didn’t get a lot accomplished later in the day. I hashed on Sunday. Pissitcide thought the trail was closer to 7 miles. It was only 2.3 and that’s with the count backs and YBFs. It got everyone home early.

    Group run tonight from Stout Brother’s in Smyrna with Asics and the Smyrna run club. Hope it doesn’t get rained out.

    Mark Manson’s post this morning and something to think about is Titled “would you date yourself”? I’m not sure I would.

    That was a really exciting game last night! That said, when they went into overtime I pretty much didn’t care who won, I just wanted it to end so I could go to bed.

    Otherwise it was a great weekend. We went to see Argylle on Saturday — Barb, I thought it was silly but that was the point. They meant for it to be silly and entertaining, and I think it succeeded.

    • Barb says:

      glad to hear your review- I’m glad you enjoyed it.
      I guess I thought it was supposed to be more “real” – not just totally silly.
      there was a review here in the Cedar Rapids paper that just panned it.

  7. David says:

    On Saturday I immediately abandoned my plan of trying to be homeless for a day in Macon, I was too damn tired so after I dropped my daughter off at her mock trial competition I headed back home and went to sleep for 3 1/2 hours. I then laid around on the couch the rest of the day until it was time to head back to Macon to get her. I made the right call, I needed a rest day, although my publisher would have been far happier with the original plan where I spent the day writing.

    Yesterday I drove to Carrollton to fetch one of my two mothers-in-law to take her to brunch at my “wife’s” place and then to Hamilton. The show was just as amazing the second time as the first, and of course I picked up on some things I’d missed the first time around. It was such a treat. I then returned Claire to Carrollton, had a simple dinner at her house, and drove back again. In the past I would have been aghast at making two trips to Macon and Carrollton all in the same weekend. It just wasn’t a thing at all. I am liking this new me.

    • Steve says:

      While what I’ve seen of Hamilton looks like fun, I don’t think I would be able to pick up all the lyrics with my hearing as bad as it is. I figured out a while ago, if I know the song, my brain will fill in the lyrics, but otherwise it’s just words I can’t understand. Debbie listening to current country music is an example- just melody with words that blow past me. Ugh.

      • David says:

        The lyrics definitely get a little fast and furious sometimes. Claire is 83 and was concerned if she’d be able to keep up, but she did great and thoroughly enjoyed the show. She told me that her low battery alert in her hearing aid went off right after the show ended, so that was some fortunate timing!

        Weirdly, the Fox didn’t open the doors yesterday until maybe 20 minutes before the show started. The line to get in was literally a block and a half long. But impressively they got everyone in on time. Fortunately they delayed the start by a few minutes as well. That line would have driven me berserk back in the day, but it too just was what it was, and it all worked out.

        • Steve says:

          Was this the evening show and had there been a matinee? When I saw Cirque had a matinee, my first thought was “How are they going to flip the house?” )get everyone out, clean up, and get ready to let everyone in. I guess they did it, but they didn’t appear to be in a hurry to get everyone out.

        • Jenka says:

          I’ve been stuck in that line at the Fox more than once, they usually do manage to keep it moving. The only time when we missed part of the opening act was when the performer required everyone to put their cell phone in those little pouches, which really slows down the process. Otherwise it’s pretty fast.

          • David says:

            Oh, that would be a total pain. I haven’t been to an event that required that, thankfully. And yes, the line moved amazingly fast. It was impressive.

    • Barb says:

      sounds like a lot of driving, but not that bad.
      Rachel couldn’t get a ride home with a friend on Saturday night?

      • David says:

        She probably could have, but she wanted to experience driving to Macon. She wanted to drive on her own, but Macon was a little farther afield than I wanted her go to on her own. She went with her bestie Sonia, who isn’t comfortable driving on the interstate. Rachel is, but she is still in the probationary period where she’s only allowed to legally have family members in the car when she’s driving. In the end, Rachel drove there and back, which definitely made things easier on me.

    Weekend in Iowa was what I expect it to be – boring & busy at the same time.

    Grocery shopping, baking cookies, making breakfast/lumch/dinner – washing dishes….
    I really love my farm sink in GA – I HATE this tiny sink.
    I love my gas stove stop – I HATE the ceramic electric stove top. (Its such a pain to clean)

    I’ve got a little bit of a cold – I have a headache & a little cough.
    Took some cold medicine last night – the damn game going into OT almost killed me.

    Watched the Iowa Women play BB – Caitlin Clark I think decided to wait to break whatever big record until she is playing at home. Iowa was trying to force too many shots, and Nebraska came out of nowhere to win the game at the very end. Really good game. Then watched Golf, then Football.

    Trying to get some work done – Dad decided to get up in the middle of the night (I found his sitting on the couch at 0530) & wouldn’t go back to bed. Him being up really messes with my morning routine of work & piece & quiet.

  9. Working to clean the house, and one of the things I hate about Florida is that I am sweating profusely. Also, managed to cut my finger screwing in a screw for a towel hook. Dumbass!

  10. Barb says:

    I never wanted to be a nurse or whatever- getting old people dressed is not my thing.
    Anyway – Dad is dressed!!! (I blew it off all weekend, we weren’t going anywhere)
