Post Office may suspend service until it is back in place too!



FWIW, no photos, but dinner was acorn squash stuffed with sweet italian sausage in a marinara sauce.
Bob, I'm not sure who is going to be responsible for repairing the mailboxes.
I walked out there and the white wooden posts are snapped right off.
They are still on the ground.
I Googled for answers, it's saying either the landlords or the post office's responsibility.
I guess we'll find out in the morning.
That van is one that drops our dialysis patients off after rehab. They had just left the facility.

The maintenance crew fixed the mailboxes back on the posts.
Looks like they had to replace two of them, because they used to be all silver.
Two white ones now.
I'm working today through Friday.

I've just mixed up and sat down with my gallon of eruption in a jug. It must be somewhat like a death row inmate feels like on the walk to the death chamber. It's really hard to believe how much of this awful stuff is supposivly necessary to get the job done.

I take it that you have a colonoscopy tomorrow?

The hardest part of the whole ordeal is the prep. That and the drive to the hospital the next morning hoping that you can make it and not embarrass yourself on the way. Good luck!!!

Up early. Taking the lovely Mrs_Bob to the airport. She flies to San Jose to visit Melen.

She will return, with Melen and Nelson the Corgi, on the 19th. Melen will remain home for 2 weeks before returning to San Jose until Christmas, when she will return again.

I've been wiring in some new light fixtures at the fencing club. Adding to the lights. We had a few dim areas so this will give us more even lighting across the entire room. I generally measure the success of my handyman jobs based on the amount of swearing others hear combined with the amount of blood loss I incur. So far this has been a reasonably successful project. Some minor blood loss and the occasion curse word muttered, but volumes were low so we are doing pretty well so far.

Single digit cold here...

Just talked to my eldest son.
Number 1 Granddaughter is starting classes for fire and rescue.
She's going to be a firefighter!
Go Kasey!

Has she been to the local fire department and talked with the fire fighters? If not, it would be a fun day for you to have with her.

I need to get back to the gym! I'm spending so much time with the high school fencers that I don't get into the gym to take care of myself.

Currently roasting a harlequin pumpkin in the oven stuffed with mushrooms, yellow peppers, rice and marinara. Mixed in some hot sauce + maple syrup for a sweet/heat flavor profile.

Probably leaving here about 4pm to go back to the fencing club to finish up the wiring of the light fixtures that I started yesterday. We have open fencing tonight starting at 6:30pm so it gives me a couple of hours to get the wiring done and the fixtures hung before anyone shows up. All the tools are already there on my workbench. Might even grab an overpriced fancy Starbucks coffee to reward myself for a job well done?

Well I survived the ordeal and was home by 10. Everything ended up ok without creating a undesirable mess anywhere. It was determined I'm now good for 5 which will be plenty soon enough for me.

Hi all, After the work stuff today I washed the hauler and loaded the Tucker. Its going to the Mountain Saturday to drop off at the RV storage and none too soon. Weather report says a couple snow days at the end of November and a lot of snow in December. I can't wait I'm done with summer although we got the rare fall weather this year where we got a month of 75 ish degree weather when the norm is hot until the first winter storm then cold and rain skipping fall completely. My son is going to follow me so I can leave the rig there so after we drop it of we can do some shooting or hiking for the day the come home on Sunday. I had intended to do Christmas at the cabin this year but I don't think I got far enough on the cabin to make that happen this year so it will have to be next year. Marty
