A common thread among the husbands here in the long term relationships seems to be "Keep busy outside the house." There may well be something to that.

All is well. Just dealing with routine stuff that needs attention. There seems to always be something that needs fixin. I'll get back to working on the patio shortly. Our golf cart mechanic stopped by to work on two of the carts today. One has to go to the shop. The other needs further testing with a diagnostic reader. It's good that I tackled the patio now. It will make other tasks seem easier when I start them later. A job that builds my stamina helps me on the next ones.

Looks great, tee. Congrats to you both, John, on your silver anniversary. Marcus, the tunes will come in due time. GRIS, Healing meditative thoughts coming your way for Mrs GRIS.

I got off my ass today and am deep cleaning the patio. I got almost halfway done. Probably another day and a half left. I'm washing the underside of the roof. It's painted beams and tongue and groove decking. It's been 9 years since it was painted and needed some TLC. Everything is dusty so I'm taking everything out of the way. Then I'll clean it all before I put it back. I'll take pics when I'm done.

I understand your intent, John, to bring a wide array of 80's vehicles to educate the masses on general automobile choices of that period. I enjoy the information you share and read with interest across all body styles and options. For the most part I am not a big 80's car fan but I do have my favorites. My 80's cars included an 83 Cavalier 2 tone brown exterior, dark brown fabric interior and loaded with options, a 1985 Chevrolet S-10 extended cab. A 1985 Dodge high top conversion van, a 1987 Olds 88 and a 1987 Ford Thunderbird. All of them were actually enjoyable vehicles. Some things they did better than others. None of them had much in the way of performance. As a side note. These were all the vehicles I owned when I was taking a stab at becoming more mature. lol Young family man at the time and had lost my need for speed

In my humble opinion the Porsche 911, 928 and American made Corvette were fine examples of both luxury and performance that commanded the attention of the discerning auto buyer during the tumultuous 80s. Not saying other offerings weren't more appealing but in many instances out of the reach of the average consumer.

Every Sunday is Palm Sunday at the Casey compound.
Separating the squash, zucchini and green beans to give to different people. Cutting and freezing some for the pigs and prepping some for us as well for short term storage. Gonna ride up to Mil and Fils and drop some on the front porch. We'll see what unfolds during the day. I wanted to go for the ride by myself but Sue thought otherwise. She said something like "We have all day."

A local farmer loaded Sue up with yellow squash, zucchini and green beans. She distributed some and brought some home. Farmers don't have a market so the stuff is either going to rot in the fields or they are giving it away. Unless they have crop insurance. Then it's just gonna wither away.

It's not that I don't have things to do but under the current circumstance it's easy for me to ask "Why?" Why wash the cars, why work on anything? I put 10g's into the stock market on some seriously stressed companies in the hopes there would be some sort of rebound after this disaster rolls through. My gamble is down 20% already but I invested on the hopes of a one to two year return. Mixed stocks on cruise lines, airlines, MGM, IMAX a solar power company and a dental supply company. Things were looking up, then things started going down. I put it at risk when I invested it. In two years I 'll either look like a genius or and idiot. If my past is any indicator I better go looking for a dunce cap.

One of the great properties of working with wood is that you can mess up and still make corrections or alterations. Good job, tee.

Like I mentioned. If it was just me I would have passed. Sue could be around awhile so if she gets to be an old lady it will cost her less to stay here. My son, if he inherits the place, will get a good deal. lol

Panels are hurricane rated,. Contractor is specialized in the business. Licensed and insured. It has good thick beams to mount to and it has to pass a Miami Dade County inspection. One of the toughest codes in the nation.I'll like it more when we get to the break even point.


Andy, as I recall the peak IS way up there. Hope you and Tamiza are well. All we have to do is make it through these wacky times and get things back on a somewhat level playing field.

The contractors offer was $1000 under the low estimate range for a regional installer. According to the calculator the 60k was a fair price for 3003+ kWh per month. His system size was on the money for a 22.50 kW system. The equipment bought from the wholesaler would cost around 40k. Then I'd have the headache of transporting, designing, permitting, installing and having everything meet code. Plus supporting the warranty Something I'm not gonna do. Especially minus the tax credit. We decided we are just going to do the combined home and home nursery. The main nursery will stay on the grid @ around $200 a month. That system they wanted $50k because there are two meters and two solar areas to be dealt with.

24 or 26% Federal Tax credit till end of 2021 I believe. Still a big expense up front. $60k for the whole system but it powers pond pumps, irrigation pumps plus the home. My average monthly bill is $400. I told Sue it doesn't really matter for me because of my age but her being 6 year younger she might see the benefit down the line. Biggest drawback is the out of pocket. I think it would take 8 years or so to hit break even. After that it would be smooth sailing. Panels have 25 year warranty. 10 year full company warranty. Think we are going to do it. Like I mentioned . I think it is a wash for me. It would also recover some if it ever went for resale. Again, probably not in my lifetime. I'm here for the duration lol I'm getting a good price because work is drying up for the company due yo Covid-19. First quote was $65K A neighbor with lower demands got a separate quote of 50k from a different company. A second company I checked with for us had a less desirable system and quoted me $62,500.

Ya. I'm a two finger typer myself. When I was in high school I thought, What do I need to know how to type for? So I passed on taking that class.


Had a solar panel/electric guy over. Thinking of converting the nursery and house over to a micro inverter: AP system. No batteries. Sell what we over generate back to the power company. Cost to us $2.50/watt purchase price. Came in cheaper and better system than 2 other competitive bidders. Panels made in the U.S.A with some great quality up to date materials and a 30 year warranty. Better Business A+ rated, licensed and insured family owned and operated tri-county company. 4-6 weeks to completion. Permitted and so forth. I didn't care too much one way or the other but Sue swayed me to at least take a look at it. It's only money. Right? There are tax credits, resale benefits and pay less for my monthly energy cost benefits. The salesman tried to talk me into converting the water heater, stove to gas. I told him no. Didn't want to have to deal with piping, tank storage and fill ups. He told us not to go with a battery back up system until battery technology improves. I agree.

Congrats to Rosie on her official last day. I remember mine well. Even have pictures of it.


Just got sentenced to 30 days in the home (hole) by the governor of the state. Carnival cancelled our Alaska cruise. Aprils' South Carolina trip was already cancelled. Thinking of going outside and hiding behind a tree. Then start throwing rocks at cars.

Somebody hit the front of my 91 Corvette just chipping off some paint. No real damage to the body, just the paint. I ordered a bottle of of paint and a bottle clear online. Paint matched pretty good. I know it's there but it looks better than it did. It's amazing that it was painted over 10 years ago and the paint still looks pretty good on both Corvettes. No motivation again. It's like why get excited about doing anything. I'll be home for a month at least. Still. I need to get my ass in gear. Maybe tomorrow. I have a delivery tomorrow.

Actually he was very relaxed in shorts and a sport shirt. His hair was blowing in the breeze. He used to own a Corvette and I asked him if he still had it. He informed me he lost it to Hurricane Irma. I've seen him at the Homestead Speedway as well. He owns a restaurant in Key Largo known as JJ's Big Chill. He looks damn good for 76.

You're lucky. Mine will chase anything including lizards and poisonous toads. Nothing like having a dog come to the door frothing at the mouth from nipping a toad. A mouth flush and cleaning the gums usually gets them back to normal. The dogs will do it again. That I just don't understand.

Had a call this morning from someone that wanted to buy some plants. They said they were bored. Sue said "I live just a few blocks away. I'll meet you there." Later in the day the customer went with Sue and I was putting some groceries away in the office. I came out and who do I see. Coach Jimmy Johnson. He lives down in the Keys. Needless to say I was pleasantly surprised. I shared some pleasantries and congratulated him on the recent announcement that later this year he will be inducted into the Football Hall of Fame. We maintained a safe distance from each other due to Covid-19.

Hopefully the red, red robin is bob,bob bobbin' along.


Still in high avoidance mode here at the compound. However Sue is out and about so she puts me at risk everyday. She came to give me a kiss yesterday and I told her "No way". Come back and ask me in a few weeks. Funny, I routinely TRY to stay home as much as I can but when I'm forced to stay home it seems like some sort of punishment. The virus is primarily north of us but many Homesteaders commute to Miami and many are also health care workers. A teller at the bank yesterday was sick with something. When Sue asked her about it the teller said "I don't know. Maybe allergies.". Sue got a hold of the manager and told them that just ain't right to have someone sick working the tellers position. Also the people in line were not practicing social distancing even though there were markers on the floor showing everybody where they should stand. Everybody was all bunched up in the line. Sue straightened the line out quick.

I'm doing good. Started a second chat thread for the day but now merged. This aging thing sucks. Got up all achy and stiff as usual. Then I realized it takes me even more effort to do the same tasks I always do. That just ain't right. It's hard enough as it is without making it harder. Fortunately, being retired gives me more time to get $#!+ done. I've been working less at the nursery this year too. A blessing.

It does sound like the best of the worst there Gris. May she have a stunning recovery. If she is anything like Sue NOTHING will hold her down.
Speaking of Sue, her recent eye surgery the doctor thought she would do a little extra. That extra has Sue's left eye open much more than her right. The doctor told Sue to massage it and stretch everything out over the eye. Sue is pissed. All she keeps saying is "Why did the doctor do that? It was fine as it was." All she had to do was implant a 2.4 gram gold weight in her eyelid. Now, who knows. Another surgery to correct a fuck up? Don't even know if it can be corrected. What would the doctor do? Add tissue? And the beat goes on.

Sorry to hear about Ivelis' friend John.

The current situation has sort of taken the wind out of my sails. Tasks have become less urgent. That and the weather situation. Sunny skies for about two weeks now but the afternoon heat is up to 85-87 degrees. That's hot in my book. Though there are some inside things I could do that are staring back at me. Let me look around and see if I can find my motivation.

It wasn't until I accepted Sonny-boy as being what he is. It was his choice. He's Matt's age. Not what I thought he would be or could be. He wore me down.



People seem to be heeding the stay home suggestions and not a lot of people out and about. I secured some dry dog and cat food. There were only two bags of cat food and three of dog food. I left one of each. Bought some scratch off lottery tickets to quell my gambling needs.

I'M NOT SURE YOU TEACH THEM, JUST LET THEM BE WHO THEY'RE GOING TO BE. KEEP A LOOSE REIN, DON'T MICROMANAGE, DON'T HOVER. MAKE RULES FOR BEHAVIOR SIMPLE AND CLEAR. PAT THEM WHEN THEY DO WELL, SWAT THEM WHEN THEY ARE BAD. INSOFAR AS YOU CAN WITHOUT DOING THEM DAMAGE, LET THEM SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES OF THEIR ACTIONS.

PERSONALITIES ARE BUILT ON TEMPERAMENT AND EXPERIENCE. TEMPERAMENT IS MOSTLY HEREDITARY, SO YOU'VE ALREADY DONE THAT PART ;-) YOU HAVE LESS CONTROL OVER THEIR EXPERIENCE THAN YOU THINK. THAT'S KINDA A ROLL OF THE DICE ONCE THEY START TO SCHOOL AND START TO DEAL WITH SOCIETY.

BE JUST.



Sound advice there.

Hello everybody.

I see I'm getting low on dry dog and cat food. Apparently there has been a run on that too. Hope I don't find empty shelves. We'll if I do eventually I'll have a pair of the best fed dogs in Homestead. We'll just have to make dinner for 4. Think things are starting to get serious. Some might question whether satisfying there false bravado was worth the price. I'm sure we will see a rise in cases. The sooner everybody keeps their ass home for two weeks the sooner we can watch the virus fade away. Medical staff here are coming down with the virus by the scores. I'm trying to stay off the grid but I've been trying to do that for years now.

Here is a local bar that is one of the few left that bring back memories of the olden days. There are a few local dives left but hanging out in the bars ain't what it used to be. Not to worry. I spent enough time in the bars to last me a lifetime.

Howdy.


All is going in the right direction here at the Casey compound. Sue is healing up. My April trip to So Carolina for a bat mitzvah have been cancelled. And my cruise in May is unlikely. Flights, rental car, cruise and hotels all have to be dealt with. I HATE dealing with that kind of $#!+. Time consuming and I'll end up with future credits. Then I'll have to deal with that $#!+ later. Why doesn't everybody just take a Lysol shower and breath in the fumes.

Hello

I bought some stock that was getting hammered and figured why not buy when it's selling low. It was selling at about 1/6th it's high over the past year. Well, it went lower and right now I'm in the minus column. I bought it for a long trade anyway so no sense looking at it for awhile. Economies go in cycles. I should make some money someday.

Hello

I'm 50/50 Hungarian/Irish. A hell of mix. Both of them enjoyed imbibing. Me too. Just a little too much. No whiskey for me till I reach 70. Looking forward to it .

I have a bottle of Chevis, 3 bottles of Johnny Walker, a Blue, a Black and a Gold and a bottle of Jim Beam. One of them or all will get a taste

I am in control, here, at the Casey compound but I am in constant communication with the needed resources to help insure the safety of my neighborhood, the region and the world.


I went through my crisis management supply list and found we have adequate supplies of toilet paper, alcohol, bleach, paper towels, food, water and ammunition. In hurricane country we get bombarded with the phrase "Hunker down, so this is really not new for us. Unfortunately the masses of tourists have no interest in following social distance guidelines and are flocking to the beaches, clubs and eateries. May God have mercy on their souls.

The TP is if you have to self quarantine for a couple of weeks you have the needed supply. Everything public cancelled around here. I went to pick up some prescriptions for Sue last night at Walgreen's and they had plenty of TP but I had no back up packages at home so I bought two packs. That's my usual reserve, Not hoarding but prepared for the worst.
Sues surgery was relatively quick. Waited 2 hours before the 45 minute surgery and about 45 minutes after. I was home by 2:00. Left the house at 06:30 AM so I was at the hospital from 8:00 to about 12:30. Not bad really. They have a Don Pan eatery in the courtyard so I had a Cafe con Leche and a spinach and cheese empanada. Benefits of living in a Hispanic dominant community.

I won't be here early on the 13th but I thought I'd let you in a something. Sue has to be at the outpatient surgical unit for eyelid surgery tomorrow the 13th. The doctor originally requested a procedure that was denied by the insurance company. The doctor and Sue requested a review and the the approval came back. It was two hours AFTER Sue had her eye lid surgery. So on the 13th I'll be taking Sue in for yet another surgery. She had nerve damage to the left side of her face back in the 1989 accident, her right eyelid only partially closes. They want to put in a gold weight to aid her lid in closing some. The last surgery they cut and pulled skin around the eye because she was losing her peripheral vision. This will be her 89th surgery. You read that right. 89th surgery over her lifetime. I've been through about 84 of them. Her foot has still not fully healed. The eye doctor was pulling stitches out of her head from her December eye surgery earlier this week. Sue goes through so much and a terrible amount of pain. Sue usually waits until something is intolerable before she seeks surgical relief. Can't say I blame her. It's been a long tough row to hoe ... for both of us.
