Random Music Reminders

I glanced at the clock. It read 1:01pm. Suddenly, for some reason, Hall and Oates "One on One" popped into my head.

Not Very "Centered"

Kinda cool here in the back part of the house. Can't turn the heat up though, because then mom would get too hot in the front part of the house. "Central" air unit wasn't installed near the "center" of the house. :-/

Machu Picchu??

Leo Laporte said during a break on his radio show he was going next year to see the ancient ruins at Machu Picchu.


If I want to see "ancient ruins", all I have to do is look in a mirror!

It'll just be mom and I around the house this week. Andrew left early this morning, heading down to South Louisiana to spend the week with the ex-wife.

Hopefully I'll have no major internet issues while he's gone, since he's got all the account info and passwords.

Already Got One

Just stopped at a nearby convenience store to pick up a few MegaMillion lottery tickets for tomorrow nights drawing. Cute Indian lady cashier said "Have a good one!" as I was leaving. I almost replied, "I've already got a good one, but never get a chance to use it!", but stopped myself, because I wasn't sure exactly how she might take it.

Is this the right room for an argument?

A guy and myself in the #TWiTLive IRC chat got into an argument. The story linked about the 80's series "Fraggle Rock" came up. I argued that no way will the show EVER be TRUE "HD". The series was shot on 1980's era broadcast videotape. The best they can do is try to seriously "upscale" the show. The other person, a moderator in the chat, kept trying to tell me it was shot on film, and originally framed for 16:9. He finally got tired of arguing with me, and said "let's move on". He never admitted he had no clue what he was talking about.

2003 - 2016


He was acting normal earlier this morning. He ate his food, and laid down by my feet under the desk like he always has. I combed and petted him like I always do in the mornings. I got up to check the mail and put the laundry in the machine, When I got back, I petted him again, he didn't respond. His eyes were open, but he wasn't breathing and I couldn't feel a heartbeat. I'm guessing he had a sudden heart attack. If so, hopefully he didn't suffer. :-(

Andrew helped me bury him in the back yard.

Sick Son

Andrew went in to work this morning, even though he wasn't feeling well. He asked to leave work early and went to Conway Hospital's walk-in clinic. He was diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection and acute sore throat. He got two injections in his hip, got prescribed antibiotics and an inhaler, and was given an excuse to stay off work until Monday.

Looked up the "Sample Ballot" for my area for the upcoming elections. Got everything decided, even which way I'll be voting on the state constitutional amendments. Only category I WON'T vote at all in this time is "U. S. Representative 5th Congressional District", because NEITHER candidate is for things I believe in.

If you get a gift certificate for Omaha Steaks ,DON'T USE IT! They will call you on the phone to ANNOY you, trying to sell you stuff! I'll be damned if I ever associate with that company again!

Postal Lates

Either we didn't get any mail today, or it's running very late again. Saturday before last, I didn't get Saturday's mail until Tuesday. I had given up checking for it by 4pm that Saturday, but when I took a bill out to the box to mail that Tuesday morning, mail was in the box. Carrier ran at the regular time that day, so technically, I got mail TWICE that day.

Grumpy Cat

Took Eastwood for his annual immunizations and exam this morning. As usual, he fussed all the way to the veterinarian's office. Once there, they had to fight to get him out of the carrier. He tried to get away when getting his shots, and didn't want to take his oral worm medication. After the doctor was finished with him, however, he hurriedly ran back into the carrier, and was quiet all the way home. Same routine EVERY year!

I now have autographs from Carl Reiner, Kathy Garver(her previous book), Dick DeBartolo(an original "Match Game" card and a photo), and Marcia Ball(a CD). Also have a "Doonesbury" poster signed by Garry Trudeau in 2005 I won in a GoComics contest, but since it wasn't signed explicitly for ME, not sure I can count that as an "autograph".

Rescheduled Appointment

Ugh. University Health just called regarding my Friday appointment in Shreveport with ear/nose/throat. They said, due to the stuff happening in south Louisiana, they were going to have to reschedule me. They didn't give me a new date on the phone, they said they would be mailing me a new appointment date.

However, I AM able to eat more solid foods since I stopped taking the lisinopril medicine, so apparently that WAS causing my swallowing issues. Bad thing, it took ME doing online research to figure it out, not the doctors at University Health!
