4:36 AM

The roofer said he would be early dropping the trailer off, I did not know early was 4:36 AM.

Backed up right to my bedroom window. Lol.

I ain’t even mad. He’s gettin’ his hustle on. Most mornings for me are 5:00 AM anyway. But he’s getting up before the army!


This hasn’t seen daylight in awhile.

So the actual roofers pulled in between 7-730. I had a short day today, I got home about 12. They had already stripped the entire roof, done what repairs were needed and were already placing shingles.

Before it was time for supper we had a new roof.

I never in my life thought something like this would be so satisfying.

I guess I’m getting old, but my house is in good shape even though there are a few more things I need to do, and my family is safe and dry.

It doesn’t get much more satisfying than that.


Side note: There was something I wanted to write about today and I’ve discussed it with a couple of friends. I’m sleeping on it and writing about it tomorrow. Might be long.

That’s it. That’s the post.

Car Stuff

I’ve been working on a problem with the A/C in our 2011 Ford Escape today. It was one of my projects on my list and I’ve gone as far as I’m comfortable with.

I did replace the blower motor relay. What a pain!

I checked all the fuses, relays, switches, etc. that I know about and I think I have a major part that has failed or a switch has failed that works that part.

I know! Buy a new car! Easy peasy! 2011 is just too old.

No.

Because it’s dependable, it’s still good on gas for a V6, it’s still in good shape, AND it’s paid for.

I own it outright. Title in hand.

If it wouldn’t run now that would be one thing. But it’s just good transport.

I can drop the windows and open the sunroof and have that 55 MPH A/C for now.

I did find a great link for Ford fuse box diagrams. Very nice if you’d like to check it out.

So I am going to have to call Mr. Bruce. He’s my A/C guy. If he can’t fix it or it proves too costly and isn’t worth keeping her then I’ll think about going into debt for another car.

I get the Ranger’s problems fixed and this one can sit and be a cool day car. As long as it still runs proper.

This is just me getting things out of my head. A nothing post really. But this is my spot and I’ll post what I want.

That’s it. That’s the post.

Overnight

I set up the GoPro for a quick NIGHTLAPSE last night. I didn’t use an external battery as it was supposed to rain but the stars and clouds playing together is pretty neat for me.

Gif because video is BIG.

I probably need to figure somewhere that I can store these online to make it easier to post here. Big files take up big space. I can probably figure out a link from my cloud.

That’s it. That’s the post.

Easter and Podcast Sunday

It has been a minute since we’ve had the time to sit down and record but we’re back on the…air?

I sat down with Sam and we talked about the Road To Nowhere and some of our adventures in the mountains of NC today.

It’s short as far as podcasts though and we’re still getting out legs under us in this. Just a father and son having a good time.

Today was Easter and we did our church service as a tailgate affair.

And then off to Mamaw and Papaws for lunch and the Easter egg hunting. The oldest is feeling a little too old for this but still goes for the candy. Sugar will make you forget yourself, I guess.

The boy is eleven so an Easter Egg hunt is cool by him. Besides, he’s Mamaw’s boy.

All in all a good day.


Finally getting around to Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

We started it last night and let me tell you, four hours is a long time.

But I understand. This is actually telling a story and it’s pretty great. This will move to the top of my list quickly. (I’m not done yet.)

The only offerings I’ve truly enjoyed from DC live action are (in order of appreciation):

1. Batman Begins

2. Shazam (Truly enjoyed.)

3. The Dark Knight Rises (for finishing the story)

4. Christopher Reeve Superman movies.

5. The Dark Knight

The DCAU still kicks Marvel’s butt in superior animated quality. Period.


That’s it. That’s the post.

Busy

We’ve had a busy weekend with the kids, the house, groceries, etc. So much so that me and Sam forgot to plan anything to talk about on the podcast. So we made a new rule.

No prep, no podcast.

We are still having a problem with our sound anyway and that’s my department. I need to figure out how to properly set the mixer so that we don’t have the buzzes and clicks we are experiencing. It’s annoying for me to hear it and I know that I don’t enjoy it when listening to a podcast. One of my simple pleasures is listening to podcasts that are not only informative and entertaining, but also produced well. We are aiming for that after we get through some growing pains.

I think we have a good flow and the back and forth is there. He’s a funny little guy and we enjoy spending that time together.

We had thought about doing thirty minutes on SCPs (Secure, Contain, Protect). These are podcast and YouTube videos about creepypasta characters and things that cross over into our world. One of the podcasts I’ve been enjoying on the subject is SCP Archives from Bloody Disgusting. The sound, sound effects and acting are fantastic. I really get drawn into the stories and a bit creeped out here and there. So worth the listen.


The wife has suggested that we do some episodes on stuff we really know like spots in the Smokey Mountains that we have visited such as The Road To Nowhere and Cades Cove. Both of those spots have several ghost stories and plenty of history to talk about. We spend a great deal of time on the Blue Ridge Parkway and in the cities around it. There are plenty of stories to tell. She ain’t wrong.


Anyway, that’s enough of that. We are looking for the next couple of couches to grace our living room. The ones we have now are about eight or ten years old. Time for something new. Shopping for furniture can be a big part of that for better or worse part of the marriage compact. It is frustrating. We are also trying to find a fabric that Fibble, the younger cat, won’t find appealing. She likes to claw. Furniture isn’t you scratching post, cat. I know you’re reading this over my shoulder on the back of the recliner right now.

That’s it. That’s the post.

Late

We’ve been out today as a family having a little fun and picking up some necessary and unnecessary things.

I grabbed some books.

And as promised the boy was able to pick up an X-Box 360 for his collection.

Podcast tomorrow. Maybe.

That’s it. That’s the post.
