Song: “Acapulco 1922” by Kenny Ball And His Jazzmen
Yesterday and today flew by – I have no idea where the time went. I don’t think I spent it passed out on the laundry room floor, so I must’ve been busy. Regardless, this week feels pretty good so far!
I’ve made a lot of progress organizing my hobby stuff into that new case. I think it’s going to work really well for “portable” hobby stuff. The dining room table has gone from “asteroid impact” to “tornado”, so the time I’m spending on it seems to be paying off. They sell extra trays for the case, so I was even thinking that in the future I could even get some more trays, fill them with stuff for other hobbies, and swap them out as needed. A nice fancy modular hobby kit…
I also got some more designing and printing done. I got filament from a different place and it’s been working really well so far. Hopefully I don’t regret saying this, but the nozzle clog (that would be a great name for a band) seems to be fixed. I know that clogs are are a matter of when not if, but I’m happy with how well the printer is working.
We got a lot of rain yesterday and the ground was still damp today. We really needed the rain, some people are having house foundation problems because the ground got so dry it started pulling away from the walls. Plus, it greened the grass up very nicely and the garden got a really good watering. I went for a walk this morning and it was pretty decent out, but the afternoon was pretty swampy.
Heard from a motorcycle riding buddy I haven’t seen in a while, he’s got some health stuff going on but is doing pretty well. It was good to hear from him, and good to hear that he’s still collecting more and more bikes. I have no idea where he gets them – he lives in a somewhat remote area – but he enjoys getting them running again and trying them out. He’s a really good guy (his whole family is great) and I hope his health issues are worked out soon.
My sister texted me this evening and told me that my nephew finally got his birthday card – 13 days after we mailed it. I remember back in the day we used to be able to count on three business days. Yeesh.
J and I watched another episode of Stranger Things this evening. The pace has really picked up and it’s gone in a direction I wasn’t expecting but I think that’s a good thing. I am a little curious about how dumb/oblivious the citizens of Hawkins and the surrounding area are that so much stuff is happening under their noses and they don’t notice. Seriously, people… a five-storey (plus several underground levels) building’s worth of people got eaten two seasons in a row and nobody seemed to notice. The real estate agents in Hawkins would’ve made a pile of money selling and re-selling the houses the staff lived in. Heh… it’d be quite the twist if the extradimensional portals and mind-controlling monsters were a local real estate conspiracy.
I don’t have any appointments tomorrow but I’m expecting my new Raspberry Pi order to arrive. I’m looking forward to trying the new ones out. Hopefully tomorrow will be another good day!
