Mostly boring day yesterday consisting of running many errands, and going for a 3.5 mile walk.

Wordle: three, my starter was TRADE
Connections: perfect, Purple > Green > Blue > Yellow

  1. Weird fact of the day. On the episode of “I’ve Got a Secret” from 1955 that I am watching, one of the people on the show was Soupy Sales. Upon reading his Wikipedia page I found out this trivia about his sons:

    “Sales was married twice: first to Barbara Fox, from 1950 until their divorce in 1979. They had two sons, both of whom are rock musicians: bassist Tony Sales and drummer Hunt Sales. The brothers were the rhythm section for Todd Rundgren in the early ’70s, then for Iggy Pop starting in the mid-’70s, and later were half the band Tin Machine with David Bowie and Reeves Gabrels, from 1988 to 1992.”

    Wordle in 5… how many first letters could be different? I still had one to go, but worked through 3 of the 4!

    As I sat in the car having my oil changed, I noticed my phone said it was on a 5G network so I ran Speedtest (because I’m a geek like that). 25 MB down I can get at the house, but 25Mb up is a little special. Certainly not the second coming, like they claim.

    In the office on a Thursday since Sam covered Tuesday (we had stuff that needed a body on site). Today, not so much, but I was out Monday and Tuesday.

    30 minutes on the trainer last night. Was thinking about a run, but by the time I started moving in that direction, it was raining. About 3/4 of an inch in the gauge this morning so far.

    Wordle in 2 1/2 because I had all but the middle letter on my second try. Gave up halfway through on Connections due to apparent lack of knowledge and/or disinterest. Strands took a second to get started and then unraveled just fine.

    My two weeks of temporary cat custody ended yesterday. It sure was nice having them around for a bit.

  4. Sally says:

    Wordle in 3 starting with LONGS. I thought of 3 words it could be after that. I chose the wrong one but it eliminated one of my choices, so I came up with the 3rd! :). One mistake in Connections. Totally opposite of Wee: Yellow, Blue, Green, Purple. Strands was a little more difficult.

    Very windy last night. I heard things flying around and then a big thud. I think it was the neighbors basketball goal. Luckily it fell away from their car.

    Jasper goes home tonight. I will miss the little guy.

  5. David says:

    Looks like Jenka may be amidst a commute from hell today. I thankfully made it through the opposite direction without issue. But the other way, truly a voyage of the damned.

    • Jenka says:

      Hmmm. Not only was it fine, but traffic was actually a little lighter than usual going around Paideia. But I left before 8:00, so that might’ve made the difference. SO GLAD I missed it! Ugh.

      • David says:

        I rolled through around 8:30 and it looked hellish. Oakdale was backed up beyond sight, and Euclid was backed up half-way to L5P. You dodged a bullet for sure. I have no idea what was causing the jam.

    boring night around here last night –

    I did have lunch with Davey & Ramaho – got caught up on the hash gossip.

    Allan is in a 2 day class (yesterday & today) so he had to study last night.
    Made a boring dinner – (chicken sandwiches & tater tots) . Watched stupid shit on TV.

    The weather this week is not being very helpful to get bike riding in.
    This weekend will be Mtn biking at Dauset (& camping at Indian Springs)
    But – I have ridden more before STU than I have in the past few years.

    Our big lecture and reception were a complete success! Very well attended and the dean (my boss) was very moved. Kevin and Finn ignored my (delicious) chili and went out to dinner, so after the reception I took myself to Wisteria for a glass of wine and a quiet meal, which was just what I needed.

    Tomorrow I’m heading up to Massachusetts to see my dad, whom I haven’t seen since about a month after my mom’s funeral. He sold the house and moved into an independent apartment in the assisted living facility and I’ve haven’t seen his new place yet.

    • Steve says:

      Safe trip. Hopefully he’s good with this adjustment(s). That has to be a lot for him.

      • Jenka says:

        Considering he lived in a house in the middle of nowhere since 1982, living in what is basically an apartment building has GOT to be weird for him!

    • Barb says:

      so where did Kevin & Finn go to dinner?

      How long will you be in MA? just the weekend?

      • Jenka says:

        They went to Surin, it’s their go-to for when I can’t go. Kevin doesn’t have to read the menu because they always get the same thing.

        Just the weekend, flying back Sunday. I wish I had the time to go to a Red Sox game, but it’s maximum family time. And I’m flying into Hartford, not Boston. It’s the same amount of driving (about an hour) but a much calmer experience than flying into Logan and driving through Boston.

        • David says:

          I was shell-shocked the first time I rode in Boston traffic. Granted I was emerging from a sheltered childhood, but still…

          • Jenka says:

            Driving in Boston doesn’t bother me, but rush hour traffic leaving the city late afternoon on a Friday means sitting at full stop on the Mass Pike for two hours. No thanks!

          • David says:

            Yeah, I’d be able to hold my own in Boston just fine now.

        • Barb says:

          I’ve never been to Boston -its on the list of places to get to someday

  8. Barb says:

    ran to Aldi for mozzerella – I’m making a lasagna (might be for tonight, might be for tomorrow might, might be for the freezer)
    No 50% off stickers – but the shelves looked a little empty – they may not have gotten the next truck. Or – just everyone bought everything yesterday, so no close to sell by date meats.

  9. In from WLF. My first transplant of sunflowers appear to be dying. Poop. Today I transplanted the rest that germinated, as well as the two pepper plants I bought at Lowe’s last weekend; it appears we are finally past the point of the temperature dipping below 45°F, so I’m taking the risk.

  10. Barb says:

    weird sporadic rain here – for just a few minutes – and the sun is out
