Misc Ramblings

More bad?

So I'm sitting waiting for my truck to be inspected. I don't expect it to go well. It's been sitting for two years pretty much. I figured if I get it all fixed up Brandt could drive it once on a while. I'm pretty sure if the tires pass, they will just barely pass. That's another $500. Anyway, I sit and i wait. Just me and my thoughts. This can't be good!

Weird thing...

So on Saturday night I had my own little cookout. I grilled chicken on the patio. Well before I grilled it I defrosted it in the microwave. Well I through away the packaging that it came in after I was finished defrosting it. While it was grilling I took out the trash so it wouldn't start to stink, which you know it will do. Well last night I noticed something smelling really bad. I couldn't tell where it was coming from. I thought it might be the trash so I took it out again, even though I knew I took it out just two nights before. Then after some serious searching I found it. Even tough I had previously cleaned out the microwave, when I defrosted the chicken somehow some, or actually quite a lot, of the chicken juice had leaked. It didn't just leak into the microwave, but it leaked down into the little thing that turns the table. I never clean down in there. Nothing ever gets in there. Well this time it did, and it was disgusting. Anyway, just wanted you to know.

Pool time...

So today I played with the pool a bit. I actually didn't have to do much to it. I refilled the chlorine dispenser and empties all the baskets. I back flushed the filter and refilled the DE. I brushed the steps and the shelf but it didn't really need it. It was really just to make me feel better. The big surprise was that when I check the water chemicals they were perfect. Not close or just about, but 100 percent perfect. I have been taking care of the water most of the winter but I haven't actually tested it. The temp is up to 80 degrees so it's just about swimmable. Well, you can swim it now, but personally I like it over 85 degrees. Anyway, enough of my rambling...

Bad day...

Yesterday was a bad day...   First, I cam to the realization that I was not going to be able to go to the Jimmy Buffett concert. I could have gotten tickets but I couldn't find anybody to go with me. The women in my life just aren't cooperating with me. Then I had to take care of Leo's food and water dish along with his litter box. And finally I had to put up new lost kitty posters from the ones the rain took out. Pretty bad day all around.  :(
