Re-tired

I am tired tonight. I was tired yesterday, hence re-tired. I’m not sick. Just tired. And not tired of anything or anyone. Just weary. Worn down. Non-energetic. I wanted to write something interesting for my blog. Something pithy and insightful. But it just isn’t happening. So I think I’ll call it a day, and head to…

It’s a sad day

I am going to have to get used to waking up each morning in a world where Robin Williams is dead and Larry King is still alive. Doesn’t seem right.

Porch time

The smell of rain is truly glorious, sitting on a covered porch, mid 60s temperature, reading a good book. I just know I will sleep like a log tonight.

Achievement Unlocked: Online Map presence

A few months ago, we were driving from A to B and saw a Bing Maps camera car mapping parts of Denver. We followed the car for a few blocks on Grant Street heading toward Speer. I was curious if and when we would appear on Bing Maps. I started checking every couple of weeks…

Buddha as kitchen help

Lots of cooking today. Two roasted chickens, a bunch of bacon, microwaved kale chips (even better than baked) and roasted cabbage steaks. After all that, we had a bunch of nice cooking smells mingling about the place. Eventually, though, they turn into not so nice house smells. So we enlisted the power of the Buddha to…

Stretching it out

There’s nothing like being woken up at 3:00am by a calf muscle that’s just starting to cramp. It really lets you know that you’re alive and your muscles are WORKING! Fortunately, I was able to stretch the cramp into submission and the leg calmed right on down. I was able to get back to sleep…

I haven’t shaved in two days…

…let Octobeard begin! I’m hoping to remember to take photos every day as the beard returns to assemble into a clever video later. Also, I will not be taking photos immediately after I get up in the morning when I’m still puffy from sleep. And I will also try to use a device that can…
