Went to bed and was very comfortable, looked for a good nights sleep. Woke up at two with the rain pounding down on the roof. I left the truck windows open today so it could air out. They were still open. Had to go out and roll them up, and was soaked with freezing cold rain by the time I got it done. That woke me up well and truly. I noticed my loyal dogs stayed on the porch. They are not stupid.
This changes plans for tomorrow. I had a little work to do on the roof but it had to be dry. Now that's out. I still haven't gotten the truck in to have that fuel leak fixed. Until I do that, I can't do much in the way of hauling trash to the dump or picking up some more lumber, both of which are on the "do it soon" list. Maybe I'll drive in tomorrow to the shop, since I can't do much else.
I have a blog list that updates when people post. I notice that about three quarters of the blogs I read are not being updated. Summer always seems to be that way, people don't start writing much again until the cold, long winter nights come.
I have been carrying my AutoOrdance M1911 lately. I've had it since the late 1980's, and it's a working gun but it's in good shape. I always use a shoulder holster so it doesn't get banged around much. It's heavy, but it sure does give you confidence. At night I put the M1911 on the night table, and one of my AK-47's by the bedroom door. Before anybody gets the idea I'm being overly cautious, just remember where I live. If I don't do it, it won't get done.

I got some "perimeter defense" work done today. Now it's far less likely anyone could walk up here to the house without my knowing it. The old motion detectors I have been using haven't coped well with the constant rain, so I used something I read about in a history book. I'm not being coy by not saying exactly what, I'm trying to be a little more discreet. I've been warned yet again by a friend that I'm being a bit loquacious about some things that might better be left unsaid. True enough. I go in cycles that way. As far as the satellite photo goes, I guess someone could use that to find me if they had enough computer power, but I have to think anyone with that kind of capability would have bigger fish to fry.
It's going on 4. I better try to go on to bed, rain or no rain.
