This afternoon I drove to my hometown (about an hour) to see my parents. On the way back, driving into the setting sun on a winding 2 lane highway, I came upon a total of 8 Amish horse-drawn carriages...
I had a contractor friend give me a rough estimate of what it would cost today to take care of ALL of the major projects/renovations/replacements that I have on my list. I knew it would be totally unrealistic for my budget right now, but it was actually less than I expected. So i guess this is good news?
Istayed up until 2:45 a.m. I had tracked down my camera tripod (mini-version) and thought I was all set. When the eclipse finally happened, I turned on my camera and the battery was dead. Doh! Ergo, these pics are taken with my low light limited, tripod non-compatible smartphone camera.
Say hello to my leetl' frien'! My leetl' squirrely frien', that is. Pics are taken through my bay window, so the glass is a factor. Still he was pretty cooperative, holding poses to allow several shots, except when that dreary gray squirrel came and ruined the moment. Then he (she?) went to a higher branch, and we continued.
Dang! I was just going to DM a longstanding FFer to thank them for some quality features they've made available as enhancements to FF. I believe we've been connected almost since I first came here regularly almost 6 years ago. (Can it be that long?) Anyway, he's apparently blocked me. Why does errbody hate me all of a sudden!?!
After staying up way too late to take pics of the lunar eclipse, I had to get up just a couple hours later to take daughter to her 7 a.m. shift at the UW library, and to drop off her artwork at the Fine Arts building on the way. I greeted her at the door with a vanilla latte when I arrived to pick her up. She's gonna miss her ol' pappy...

I terminated my Yahoo account last night. I use it so infrequently that I can never remember the password, so I end up resetting it and then not using it for another year. That includes the email account. Feels like tying up a dangling loose end. Should of done it long ago. Guess that means my Flickr account is done as well. (Have to confirm that.)
While I can't say that I enjoyed the needle going all the way into the hip joint (even with local anesthetic) I'm really liking the result of the injection. Walking pain free and I can even lift my right leg into and out of the driver's area of the car without wincing. Better living through chemistry.
I'm probably going to have to pay another $40 copay today. Second one in as many weeks, and the fourth one in the past month. And it comes on top of the hospital bills I'm already paying off in installments. Even with insurance this business about trying to stay healthy is pricey.
