It stormed heavily throughout the night, especially at 2 this morning.
I'll get sleep soon.
Just did my rounds on netcookingtalk as per usual, then had to mess with the dopey leftist dolt on that other forum.
He's so easy.
I have him wondering how I know him from another political forum.
It's not that hard, man.

I am not surprised the fingerprints of his keyboard stink about the same on another forum.


Things went well today at hospital. Just feels like it did when a classmate kicked me in the balls and literally severed one. I sat on ice packs for a week.

Doc says I'll be fine by tomorrow. Hmmm.

I bought an extra bottle of scotch on the way home. We'll see where I prefer the ice.

May the scotch help your scrotal area feel better.

Default Re: What are you doing today?

Yesterday ran errands, took a short nap, then took my motorcycle to the Honda dealership for a routine maintenance.

The lovely Mrs_Bob's bike was in the shop getting a "lowering kit" installed. Also had a set of front Aux Driving Lights added to her bike for visibility.

So I rode mine into the shop and rode her's back out of the shop. It was interesting to get off my bike and get onto her lowered bike. In original form, despite different engines and do dads, the bike frames are identical and the seat height is the same. Not any more. Her's is lowered a good bit and I think she is going to love it. But it was an odd sensation. Adventure Touring bikes are generally tall bikes. She was forced to Tip-Toe the bike at stop lights. I'm pretty sure she can stand flat footed at a stop now.

Today I'll be picking Dasha up from her TOFEL test (pre-college test for foreign students) and we will probably go to the YMCA for a workout. Then home. Then all of us plan to go to Valparaiso, IN to walk around the town. Its a semi-touristy town that is close, dog friendly so Melen will bring her new puppy Nelson with us. After walking around the town we will be going to our friend's house for pizza and board games to hang out for the evening.

Tomorrow (weather permitting) heading up to Chicago to visit the Osaka Garden. Its a hidden gem on Chicago's south side and a beautiful Japanese garden in the city. Probably head over to the West Loop neighborhood to walk around there, grab some lunch. Probably do all that with Melen's law school roommate, who just took an internship in the city. So the lovely Mrs_Bob and I will be tour guides escorting 1 puppy, 1 Bosnian law student and 1 Russian high school student.

Sunny and mid 80's here so it's River Therapy for me yesterday and today. Riding on sons new to him 06 25ft open bow Rinker. 350 engine, Bravo 3 outdrive with twin props. So smooth taking off. Smoothest boat I've been in. Plus it is so much easier to get ready and go boating on someone else's boat. Nice.

A cold wet night outside but after this post, I'm going outside to mix 10 bags of Concrete.
Seems the doctor didn't do much damage so my mini vacation has ended and I gotta go to work.

Waiting for the thunderstorms and hail to hit.

Its actually semi-sunny outside right now. Radar says it won't last.

The family was supposed to go to the Osaka Garden in Chicago today with Dasha. It's a real Japanese garden, I believe it is left over from the Chicago World's Fair and was a gift from the city of Osaka. It's been on and off raining and the weather radio is squawking too. Might just give up on the idea and head off to the YMCA with Dasha?

Painted some patio furniture inside the garage. Too windy to paint it outside. 5 cans of spray paint for 4 chairs. Going to have to get another 5 cans to finish the job.

Walked out to the river (about 1/4 mile behind the house) and the wind picked up. Made it back to the porch just as the big drops started hitting. Heavy rain for about 2 minutes. Now sunshine.

So basically we ended up hanging out as a family but didn't really do too much.

It did rain hard here, and was windy.
Perhaps another round before midnight.
The river is up and has been for weeks now.

Dasha has fashionable boots.

Well, I was wrong. It took 21 sacks of concrete mix to fill the hole and cone to the top of the forms.
I bought 15 more but this time I bought 50 pounders. instead of being 720Lbs of mix I needed 1470.

I know,,,; Math is hard!

Kudos for the Harbor Freight mixer though. It is rated at 3 1/2 cubic feet but I ran four cubic feet all morning. A neat little mixer I now plan to use often. But fifty pounders three of which are 3 1/2 Cubic feet,

Back to the grind today. I got home yesterday from fish camp and made 2 trips to the new house with yard stuff then hauled the flat deck trailer to load up again. Today's plan is to make two more trips to move. Also, the new furniture is being delivered today. So a busy day in store.

Fencing club last night.

Doctor's appointment this morning.

Spray painting the old patio furniture today (2nd coat). Its heavy aluminum furniture and in good shape, but sun faded so we are refreshing it with spray paint. Did it a few years ago and it looked great. Beats the cost of buying new furniture and looks brand new when it's done. Got a bid to Powder Coat it, it was reasonable, but by the time you factor in loading all the furniture into the truck, hauling it, leaving it with them for a week, picking it up and unloading it ... it was easier to buy a few cans of spray paint per chair and just paint it!

We have a forecast of RAIN, RAIN and even MORE RAIN. Been pretty much that way for the past 2 weeks. It gets interrupted by periods of wind, hail and drizzle. No doubt the lovely Mrs_Bob will have some indoor "honey-dos" for me to do today after I'm done painting the lawn furniture ... painting will happen in the garage after I move the vehicles out and set up some tarps.

Melen is home for a couple weeks and we have Dasha staying with us so its a full house with girls. Plus Melen has her puppy Nelson so its a full house of dogs.

Tonight Melen will be making her Chicken Marsala. She makes it whenever she is home. It's good. I look forward to it.

Except for when it comes to walking and texting ready to cross the street then, oops!
Dad used to tell me I couldn't walk and chew gum at the same time lol
Actually it's a little puffy around the underside of the ankle, but I've been up cooking dinner, much to Aimee's displeasure.
She was laughing and murmuring something in Spanish.

I'm currently sitting in my bunker with tornado sirens blaring.

My man cave is our library and is re-enforced for everything but a direct hit on the house. Even that is likely survivable in the bunker. No windows, concrete wall well below ground at the west end of the house. The wine cellar is adjacent.
A second space exist at the South West corner but it has a window. But it also has a bathroom.

Family and pets all secure.
