Night


I'm glad it's finally night.  However the day went, it's over now.  I've been reading a few blogs but many of those I like have not been updated recently. I sometimes forget people are working and don't have a lot of time. A few folks had posted though, and I enjoyed reading those.

Tomorrow I have some business at the court house. Nothing major, I just need to take some paper work by to get a handicapped parking pass for my wife. She has arthritis , which is another reason I think she is anxious to leave the winters in the mountains for balmy Florida.  Lately I've had some experiences that make me doubt I am really condo dweller material. But we have time to work out a mutually acceptable plan for that far away in the future.

I'm listening to some Jeff Oster smooth jazz tonight.  That guy can really compose and play some music. Helps me settle down.  I don't usually have a night cap but I am tonight, a nice Southern Comfort and Coke over ice.  This was that kind of day.

Tomorrow will be better, I'm sure.

  1. Condo dwelling would kill you, just as it would me and the majority of the regulars that haunt your blog.

    Take it easy, lay off the news for a day or two.

    1. Sitting on the balcony isn't bad. Walking on the beach isn't bad. But it's pretty crowded there.

      Didn't do anything much today. Too hot out. Took my ferret in for her chip implant. The vets office messed up the bill, overcharged me $60.00 but we got that straightened out.

    1. Gary, it isn't me that wants to live there full time. I like to visit too, but I have qualms about joining the hive. It's my wife. She has arthritis pretty badly and would be better off there than here, especially in winter.

      I gave some thought to buying a better truck and a nice camper, but it would only be for short jaunts, not to live in all the time . Now I am thinking I don't need anything else to take care of. We'll see how it works out.

  3. Harry, There is plenty of room in the "zone of possible agreement" so I'm sure you all will figure something out. Hope tomorrow is better. Worst case put a few rounds through an old bolt gun and one of your high power's.

    1. I'd go out and do some shooting if it wasn't so hot. Checked the weather, it's supposed to cool off some. Maybe I'll go out to the range tomorrow. They will surely have some kind of competition scheduled over labor day and I could just be a spectator.

      My wife and I will work out what we want to do, I'm sure. We've got options and they all seem to be good ones.

    1. It went ok. It wasn't even really an operation like I thought it was going to be. She is sleeping in her snuggy bag and seems to be doing alright. It's a big relief to get it done.

  5. Harry - i am glad that you and your wife have some time to figure out an agreeable plan. does your wife take glucosamine and chondroitin? it is available from any pharmacy - i like the liquid type - and i find it helps with the arthritis big time. as well, does she take fish oil caplets? that also helps, too. i am thinking of little Rowena today and hoping that she comes through her surgery tip-top. keep us updated eh?

    your friend,
    kymber

    1. Kymber, Rowena's chip implant went fine. I always check my bills carefully and I saw the vet had overcharged me $60.00 for medicine, so we had to get that straightened out. But it's not been a bad day.

      I don't know what medicines M is taking. She gets them over in the town where her sister is a doctor, so we don't have to pay the idiotic "co payment" to get the prescriptions rewritten every three months. I'll ask her.

  6. When can you expect Rowena to show you she is feeling better? I am an herbalist when it comes to health issues for the most part, but in this instance, I'd happily let them implant my pet!
    P.S. I would have gone back to the Walmart ammo counter and made the insipid drone sell me the ammo. Then maybe just for fun, go back whenever I was in town and ask him to show me some ammo and ask "Is that the right price"? I don't go to movies or watch tv, gotta make my own fun. :)

  7. She should start feeling better immediately. The medicine is being discharged into her blood stream. She has been sleeping since she got home, but that's pretty common with ferrets. They get easily stressed out under unusual circumstances.

    I was so beat down by the time that got straightened out I just wanted to go home and rest. I will go by there tomorrow while I am out and see if there is any .45 left and if they corrected the error. If there is, I'll pick up some.
