Gris ... I understand about the suitcases.


Having had my travel itineraries suppressed I feel like a slave trapped in my own home. The country in general does not realize the inequality being placed upon me by removing my ability cruise on a regular basis. It would help if I could tear down several nautical statues, maybe loot a museum documenting nautical history or go topple some headstones at the Titanic burial grounds. This systemic prejudice must be identified as what it is. Vacationism. If I don't board soon I fear I'll have no choice but to obstruct traffic, loot and pillage and start painting large murals. Stop the insanity.

Think it is only fitting I wash and run the cars today. May pass on the hot dogs for a more diet friendly fare. Crank up some tunes in the garage to the delight of my neighbors.

A friend of mine just sent a pic from his yard. I think his rich daddy (also a friend) might have something to do with it.

Good morning one and all.
Been working like an indentured servant but I like that things are getting done. Solar panel billing update. My bill last month was a partial bill because there was an overlap of service and with the start up. The bill was $129. Usually around $400. This is the first full production month and my projected bill is around $50. We use between 3200 and 3400 kwH a month at this time of year. I have the A/C going full time in the back shed/office. A little tweaking with LED light bulbs and doing stuff like laundry when the system is producing could swing it lower. We are using our power at will so $50 is great but $0 is even better. This year is one of those years I want to wake up and it be over. Miss my cruises. Too many surgeries, and the other outside crap that's going on that I am avoiding. Saharan dust is keeping the rain away , the temps hot and it's been sunny. June is usually the wettest month of the year but the rains came early this year. I'm sure we'll get something sometime.

May the best things in life be yours.

Also found an arcing plug wire so looks like plugs and wires are in my future.

All that clean-up from previous owners—I remember it well with my 1985.

Howdy. Hot and humid. I'm doing alright trying to build my summer stamina up. I push myself. I know when I start getting chills at 05:00 PM and it''s in the 90's. I hyrdrate frequently. What's the worst that can happen? ;) ( If I haven't posted anything in over a week, you'll know what happened.)

Digging ditches ...... and turning big rocks into little rocks. That's what happens when you don't get an education. Do you want to end up digging ditches?


I'm cleaning up the front yard with two guys for hire. It's hot as hades. Coming up on the half year mark. The sooner this year is over the better. Especially if they find a vaccine for the Hong Kong Crud. Well, it can slow down for December if the cruise ships are back up and running. I'm booked for then.


Ya , that's another thing you get when you don't have an education. You have to clean up the front yard with two guys for hire in the hot, sweaty, summer.

Heck of a day. Sue is back home. Another short story there. You could not believe the stuff she and then I by default have to go through. She of course has the worst of it. My days have been interrupted through the week and tomorrow the guys are coming to work at the house. That means I get to work.

The solar salesman called me and told me the power company decertified my system. Has little to do with us other than we have a ton of money already paid out on it. The power company is going to wrangle with my contractor. I'm putting out just about everything I use. Worst thing that can happen is I'll end up off grid completely. I'll let the power company put that in their pipe and smoke it. Then I'll be all batteries all the time. If I have to do that the contractor will have little choice other than sell me the batteries at cost plus labor. We shall see how the cookie crumbles.

I'm receiving more honey-do calls than I care to receive. I have a Miami delivery that will take me at least 3 hours round trip. Mid day. Fun, fun, fun. That middle of the day stuff just kills production at home. Sue might have to spend tonight in the hospital for surgery tomorrow on her wound. It's looking a little angry. Doc wants to clean it up and send some tissue off to the lab. Been a lousy year for medical crap. Surgeries in Dec.(eye) Jan (eye and foot) and May (foot). Covid is surging again in South Florida. More crap. Overall just looking to put 2020 in the history books. Too much to do and far too little me time. Selfish. Right?

It's sweatenty degrees outside today. The "feels like" temp was said to be 105*. Back In the olden days there were only 5 temperatures. Very cold , cold, nice, hot and very hot. Today we have real temperatures and feels like temperatures. I don't get it. It's like the mid 90's is not enough. No .... Feels like 105. Sue is getting her tires and alignment for the Silverado today too. She asked what kind of deal they could give her. The salesman said I'll do the mounting balancing, stems and road hazard for free. Good thing the manager was out. He is said to be an A-S-S-H-O-L-E.
I didn't get much done today. 4 hours of honey-do's pretty well killed my plans.

Same here with the Miccosukee and Seminoles. The Mics kept the old ways and drove deeper into the Everglades. They're not into to old ways anymore. Houses, SUV's and modern education have put a damper on that. Not to mention a chunk of change every few months from the casino.


Returned an email to one of my good childhood friends this morning. We went to elementary school together. Another childhood friend I recently made contact with has list of people from back in those days. My first friend in the world I am still in contact with. lol He lives in Cali not far from Andy. HOT and HUMID but what else would I expect from SoFlo in summer. Have I ever mentioned I'm not a fan of summer in Florida.

Sue called me this morning to go help a neighbor bag a snake up on the corner of my street. The neighbor is a marine biologist at Biscayne National Park and just wanted someone there as back-up should something go wrong. She bagged a three foot Burmese python. Big enough to eat a rabbit. Needless to say the snake is destined for the snake hunting grounds in the sky. The snakes are non native and very harmful to the environment. One of my dogs killed a Tegu lizard in the front yard the other day. About a 30 incher. They throw their tails to try and distract their attackers so they can get away. My dogs are not big fans of reptiles or birds and usually dispatch any wayward ones they catch. Rabbits too are in grave danger by these doggies.

Happy Father's Day you mothers ........


Went to a B-day party yesterday at one of Sue's client/friend's house. They are the ones that built the biggest home in Florida. It is absolutely unbelievable. Columns and marble, fountains and recovered stained glass windows, a huge home theater and in house bowling alley huge pond, exotic animals, a massive Tiki Hut with restaurant sized kitchen. Pools and a huge pond that has swans, geese and ducks. In a gated area they have 4 cows and a dozen sheep. They operate tree farm and start up fruit grove on the property. Sue sells them requested fruit trees. The home is almost finished. Working on the kitchen cabinets now. The owner is a real estate developer by trade. I like to visit there. Makes me feel life is easy when I leave and all I have to do is maintain our little piece of heaven. Less is more. lol

LOL The rattles and creaks and leaks when it rains have been on my list for 18 years on the 90. Obviously the priority is low because they have never risen to the top of the list. The other cars have their individual faults too. They're all running except for the 928.


I recently told Sue "Don't expect me to do anything fast. I have one speed now. Slow." It's really working on her. Slow is not wired into her anatomy. LOL

Hello. Taking care of business in town today and did a little shopping. Finding paper napkins has been has been the hunt for us lately. The value packs are not on the shelves leaving the overpriced small packs the only choice or the Deluxe napkins for when you are trying to impress company. You know, when you use Chinette.

Howdy! Raining on and off here. Had a deluge yesterday afternoon and saw some water leaking into the bedroom in the corner of an outside wall. Went up into the attic and really didn't see much. Must be where two roofs come together I'm thinking. There is a two foot wedge area I'm going to seal. There is a gutter above that wall too and when it rains hard the runoff of the roof overshoots the gutter a little and water drips down and under. Another area of concern but I'v got a fix in mind. Only goes to show .......... It's always sumthin.


Had an early delivery and Sue has a chore for me at the nursery that I'll do with the guys when she leaves for a dentist appointment. The fun never ends.

My FIL has his 2014 Vert Yellow/Black. Great looking Vette he hardly takes out of the garage. It has less than 7k miles. I might have to take it off his hands one day. He paid 72 I think but the sticker had to be higher. He likes to negotiate.

Just priced it at at $42,500 for private party, standard equipment.His is loaded.

I think stock should more than suffice Matt. Easier to get things done AND it's not that you have that many chances to open it up speed wise. It probably has a little kick to it as it is. Our beautiful 911's and Corvettes rarely get to see top gear. 1-3 in the 911's 1-4 in the 90 Corvette and the 91 is an auto.

The grey skies have moved in with accompanying thunder and lightning. Woke this morning and walked out on the back patio like I always do and something didn't sound right with the pond. One of the couplers had blown off a hose to a small pond that overflows into the big pond. All the water had drained out except for about a foot on the bottom. Fortunately all the Koi seem to have survived and the bigger cyclids and pleckos. Many of the cyclid fry and fingerlings got stuck in the plant pots. As the water drained they were high and dry. Lost hundreds of babies. I'll be scooping small dead fish for days. Cleaned up the inside of the pond since it was down, fixed the fountain and potted a couple plants and got rid of a small dead tree. When I was working on the fountain the end of the feed hose broke off on my hand. Then it was to short to hook up to the coupling. A crafty hose fix and it was back in action. All in all it could have been worse. I'm thankful that it wasn't but it was still bad enough.

Well, it's 04:00 and I up over a half hour already. Dog woke me to let the cat in for it's usual mid night snack. I laid back down but couldn't kick back in to sleep mode. Started working on the 928 in my head. Figured I'd just get up. Thankfully I have the mid day nap option. At least I hope I do. I have a delivery in the middle Keys today. Simple drive and drop then return. Nothing overly pressing on the must do front but as usual there is plenty that needs my attention.

Matt, replay on what Tom asked. What are you thinking about doing with the Corvette? Or are you going to become another Tommy T type collector that can't come around to selling any of his prized possessions.


On the health front. I am supposed to be engaging diet modifications that is basically a low cholesterol, low sugar diet. At a stage in my life when I can finally afford to eat many of the foods I was denied because of budgetary restraints when I was younger, I find I have been cheating quite a bit on my doctor recommended lifestyle changes. Red meat, dairy, sodas, shrimp, pasta, fried foods, ice cream, chocolate, juices, crackers, chips and dried fruits are just a some of the things on the naughty list. And of course the smoking thing. I keep trying to convince myself that it's OK to cheat. That's my "Live till I die." approach or the bad angel on my one shoulder. Then there is my good angel telling me "You can do it." Eat low fat turkey and chicken breasts, fish high in omega acids, fruits and nuts, lots of fresh vegetables , drink a good amount of water and quit smoking. Self awareness is part of good health. One thing I am aware of is I haven't had a doughnut for awhile. I usually get a coffee and a couple of donuts to enjoy on the way back from the Keys. Bad angel ............. Bad angel............

Tommy, sometimes it's just as well to dump the printer and get a new one. Been there, done that.



I deleted the printer and did a fresh install with new driver and Windows showed me some love. I have two full sets of ink carts plus the ones hat are in there. So I was trying not to lose money on that too. All is well in the print department once again. Windows 10 did a big update could have been that or I was trying to transfer a file to pdf. That could have thrown things out of wack as well. You never know with software. One day something works and all of a sudden it doesn't. Glad I got it back. The printer is a Brother MFC-885CW. It has really been a great machine. I'm not a geek but I'm not afraid to try and fix stuff either. The new printer is a last resort. I'm sure the time will come though.

"Seize the day." .... I don't quite have the strength to be seizing anything. "Grab it by the horns." .... No way. It would be too easy for me to be impaled. "First come, first served." .... Not an issue with me. I got up at 08:00 so I'll be in line with the rest of the late risers. "Nothing ventured, noting gained. .... Nothing lost either.

I've had a printer issue the past couple of days. I've tried hours and hours of troubleshooting. Disconnecting, updating driver, going to the manufacturer web site, looking through Windows Q&A's. Even had my son come by and look at it and he has a BS in computer science. When I run troubleshoot it says that printer is operating properly. If only the printer knew.

Read the white privilege post from the other day. I have supported equal rights since the 60's. I am not a racist I just don't like assholes no matter the color. There is one race. The human race. Lives matter. If people don't like my position or how I say it that's their problem, not mine. If equal opportunity is squandered and no effort is made to succeed that's a personal choice. I think I get riled up because they're trying to force me to believe something I've been practicing all my life. To me I take it as an insult. I try to avoid the news about Covid and the racist black lives matter movement. It's impossible. It's on every source of contact. The web, television, printed media, you name it. I'm looking for it to get covered by the sands of time. Till then I'll avoid the assholes.

Sue is still recovering. Her ankle wound blew open under the stitches and she has a big wound healing from the inside out. This makes 7 months of surgical recovery with her eye first then two foot surgeries. I'll be glad when this phase is over as well.

I have a friend whose mother was in the hospital and had cardiac arrest. They tried CPR for over a half hour but the doctors had declared she was beyond recovery. The doctor told my friend that her mother had passed. She went in to hold her mothers hand. Her mothers body was convulsing. The medical staff said it was because of the drugs they had pumped into her to try and keep her alive. After awhile she went home only to get a call that her mother was still alive and breathing. She went back to the hospital where the staff told her the needed a DNR order and they could then turn her mother over to hospice care. She could last for a couple of days or a couple of weeks. So her mother was dead. Then her mother was alive again. Within 24 hours her mother passed. Talk about a roller coaster.

I've been busy today. Making up for the past few of not doing much physically.

11th of June. Again?


Sorry to hear about the cancer scourge. We heard of a similar story yesterday. Sue and I will attend a funeral tomorrow for a friend of the family that attended many of our parties years ago when we used to have several parties a year at our house. She was 85 and suffered from dementia for many years now.


The older I get the more funerals I'll have to attend is my guess. Get out there and live, gurus. Until you don't.
