Just Two Old Fellas

Weโ€™re just two old fellas winding down from the day, enjoying a little TV. Catching up on NCIS.

Iโ€™m off tomorrow so we can hang out while I clean house and take care of some projects.

Lots of things happening here and lots of money being invested in our home by us. You have to take care of what you can and improve on things when you can.

Thatโ€™s it. Thatโ€™s the post.


Sitting At The Eye Doctor

The one place youโ€™d expect to be able to look around is the eye doctor. But everyone in the waiting room is on their phones.

So basically everyoneโ€™s view is this :

Also, there are the masks (when are we just gonna drop these damned things?!) and no one speaks.

But, I suppose, I have to go with a saying from one of my favorites:

Thereโ€™s a plan in everything, kid. And I love it when a plan comes together. – H. Smith

(I just wanna see properly. I donโ€™t need to speak to these people.)

Thatโ€™s it. Thatโ€™s the post.


Cades Cove Churches

This is a pic of the inside of one of the churches at Cades Cove. Itโ€™s one of the reason I go there. The other reason being she makes me go there.

I grumble because itโ€™s quite a drive just to get to the place. Then the lines and traffic.

But this kinda makes it worth it.

That and seeing her smile just because sheโ€™s there, with me.

Thatโ€™s it. Thatโ€™s the post.



Not the old magazine that rivaled MAD Magazine. No, I may have a cracked rib and that sucks.

Iโ€™ve been having a lot of muscle pain lately left side, and that happens with getting old, but Iโ€™m probably going to have it looked at just to be safe and ease the mind.

The human body is quite the machine when itโ€™s running right.

And when itโ€™s running less so itโ€™s still amazing that one little thing out of whack can cause the whole of the thing to want to stop.

But I guess thatโ€™s a natural protection mechanism.

I want to warn yโ€™all ahead of time that I may have a few words that some wonโ€™t like here soon.

I am really angry about whatโ€™s happening with our country right now. But I will try to keep it to a dull roar. I donโ€™t have a huge readership. As a matter of fact I donโ€™t think anyone reads this on the daily.

But, this is where I let off steam and get stuff out of my head.

If I offend, so be it. Thatโ€™s not me being callous, it is what it is.

I wonโ€™t apologize.

Not time to proofread tonight. (Okay, I lied.)

Thatโ€™s it. Thatโ€™s the post.


Health, iOS 14, Work

Well, my leg didnโ€™t fall off. The pain subsided over night. I think this may be an incurable malady called…getting old.

Iโ€™m not ancient, but Iโ€™m not a teenager. I heal slower than I did in previous decades. Every day is a new pain, and Iโ€™m just going to have to adapt. I need to start stretching and exercising more. Keep loose. I think that would help greatly. We shall see.

iOS 14 is downloading to this device as I type this and I am fairly excited about the new design.

Widgets on the home screen and I can make it more my own.

Yes, Android has always done this and itโ€™s (was) one of my biggest pet peeves about Apple. It was also one of my greatest loves of Android. So this makes me a happy camper.

And then thereโ€™s work. I have two stores in inventory this week and had Monday off because I worked the weekend.

And thatโ€™s okay! Iโ€™m the full time guy and I have two part timers Iโ€™m responsible for. They do pretty well for me and we got each otherโ€™s backs. I figure they shouldnโ€™t have to work every weekend so they split the stores (four of them) one weekend and I take the next weekend.

Thereโ€™s no reason these weekend deals the company makes should make all of us come to a full stop Sat/Sun.

This is how we make our money.

The travel time (paid) and mileage (paid) between stores means Iโ€™m listening to podcasts like itโ€™s my job those days and the work isnโ€™t so bad.

At least itโ€™s clean.


Weโ€™re filling hand sanitizers and distributing gallons of the stuff throughout the stores every day.

My hands are so clean I can heal lepers.


I got nothinโ€™.

Not a single, solitary thing to post tonight. Not really.

I got up this morning.

I went to work.

I came home and spent some time with the family. Had dinner.

Iโ€™m watching MacGyver with the wife right now. Weโ€™ve been binging it. Once you get over your love for the original MacGyver, itโ€™s entertaining and worth watching.

Of course, it isnโ€™t the original. Although the cameos by the original actors meeting their modern day (I feel old) replacements is a treat.

And Iโ€™m back to the grind in the morning. Donโ€™t worry though, itโ€™s only half a day. Short activities and more ride than work. Lots of time to listen to podcasts.

Iโ€™m hoping the weather clears for me to get out to NCHS and get my footage of the demolition.

So, it looks like I had something after all.


Orange Gatorade

I stopped at a convenience store this afternoon on the way home that I stop by quite often.

One, I needed an orange Gatorade.

Two, thereโ€™s an interesting old house across the street and Iโ€™ve been carrying the Mavic Mini pretty much everywhere with me because, well, ya never know.

The house has been there far longer than I have. Recently cleared tress revealed it to me a couple of months ago. Like I said, I needed the Gatorade, so while I was inside I asked the manager if she minded me taking off from the end of the parking lot and with an affirmative from her, I took off.

It will change and Iโ€™ll get to watch it happen.

Itโ€™s interesting to me how nature takes over a place only to be beaten back by winter to reveal what it has done and then have another go all over again.

Iโ€™ll be drinking a lot of orange Gatorade.


Taking a break…

Taking a break from the political for a bit.

Iโ€™m tired.

Iโ€™m mostly tired of people just taking every single little conspiracy theory they come across, or the next shocking picture or article and just running with it.

Iโ€™m tired of morons with access to the internet believing every little thing they hear.

Iโ€™m tired of people who are pinning all their hopes and dreams on one or two people (that the different sides of government picked) and going straight up fanatical about them.

POTUS isnโ€™t the second coming. I know that. He knows that. I just wish his fans would get it.

Biden is just a tired, old man. This isnโ€™t an insult, Iโ€™m a tired old man, too. No, heโ€™s being used and handled. And the people who are doing it should be brought up on charges for elder abuse.

Thatโ€™s it. Thatโ€™s the post.
