I don’t find newer music that I like a lot but instantly liked two of the track on one of his albums 𝚆𝚎 𝚃𝚑𝚎 𝙿𝚎𝚘𝚙𝚕𝚎 and headed on over to Apple Music and downloaded the album. I’ll probably play each song at least 280 times.
Always nice to find a positive spot in an otherwise mess of a day.
I don’t have to be at work until I get there tomorrow. My car is still at the shop, and I must be dropped off when it’s done in the morning. So I have the house to myself for a while. I’m thinking breakfast and maybe some time in the garage finishing up some things.
I hate being out of the car, though, breaking things down so I’ll have the necessities out of my trunk kit is a PITA.
Today was a good day. We even got some rain.
It looks to be a dry summer coming in. It’s hot, and you can tell what it’s leading into. It’s only May 1st. I am not a fan of hot weather.
Which reminds me, my least favorite Star Wars day is coming. I may skip the internet altogether in three days.
I never thought I would get as excited about replacing a water heater, but here I am.
This old gal pulled 25+ years and was a workhorse. I know she was a drag on my power bill so…
Out with the old, in with the new.
I met a plumber and his girlfriend by chance out on the sidewalk at work a couple of months ago—a nice younger couple. They were very polite when I was walking by and I had been wondering about replacing the water heater.
And now here I am.
My pocket is definitely lighter but I’m looking at gaining a little back at a time in energy costs along with a few other changes I’ve made around the house.
I love knives and always have my SAK on me because I might have to MacGyver something.
The problem with that is I start to accumulate pocket clutter because I never leave the house without knives. Yes. Plural.
Every knife can be used for it’s primary function as a tool, and every knife can be used as a weapon. Some are better tools than others and vice verse.
And, unfortunately, you never know if you might need to get shabby.
One of my very favorite folders is this one:
It’s a KA-BAR (yes that KA-BAR), and I had never seen a folder by them until several years ago in a little shop in Maggie Valley, NC.
In the picture above are a couple of minimal knife sheaths. Topstache makes them. I was looking around on Amazon and found them. I took a chance on the sheath on the left in the picture and loved it. I’ve been trying it out for the last couple of months. It’s very durable and comfortable to wear.
But I needed something a little more straightforward for work, and the one on the right I received today.
It will hang straight on my belt where the other has a slight angle to it. I have a belt clip for my personal phone at work and the other sheath doesn’t fit well with my EDC so that’s why I ordered the other.
The new sheath will sit better at the small of my back. Yes, I’ve already suited up with it. I’m already knifed up for tomorrow.
Anyways, I needed to write something down constructive tonight, so here I am and here you are.
