Looks like it’s going to be another puttering in the yard day
Yes, that’s what it was. But first I headed to down town Guerneville to the library to post a couple blogs I haven’t been able to post, due to my phone outage.
The excursion to the library wasn’t too bad. I walked in and asked the lady at the desk if I could use the wireless internet connection. She said sure, sit anywhere, just not in the kids area. OK. I asked about a password and she said there wasn’t one. Great.
So I went through the process of signing on with my mini computer and got on with no problem,…………….but.
I couldn’t send email or publish my blog. What the?
I’ll try going on the internet and open my browser and a library, I accept window pops up. Great. I accept and now I can do email and post to my blog, so I do.
My phone is still out at this time and likely won’t be back on until Tuesday. Can you believe that? They used to have this kind of stuff fixed in a day or two, now it seems to be ok to take a week? Progress, eh? :O) My phone is my dsl connection which I miss more than my phone.
Puttered around the yard and worked on van projects.
I drove back home and puttered around the yard and worked on van projects.
The box I made yesterday got mounted in the van. I decided not to paint it yet until I’m certain it’s what I want. So, I will use it first. Best way to test stuff,………….. use it.
Only a few cherries in the trees
While walking around the yard, I make it a point to walk past the cherry trees to see if any are starting to get ripe. There are only a few dozen or so cherries out there, so if I want them, I have to eat them just as they start to get red. If I wait, the birds and animals will likely get them. I ate about six semi ripe cherries and they were good.
And only a few blue berries so far.
I also noticed that a few of my blueberries are starting to turn blue, which means they are ripe and I ate a few of them. So far the jays and robins haven’t spotted them.
A couple other things I did was mount a rear light inside the rear doors so I can find stuff back there in the dark.
And I mounted a pizzo electric lighter to my new propane grill I’m getting ready for the van. I hate trying to light these kinds of things with a flame as you have to get the flame down and up there, what a pain. I think I’ll like this new addition.
I finished the day by getting under my car and tightening up a couple loose bolts. That wasn’t too bad.
I took it easy today, but still got quite a bit accomplished.
