It's not JUST about what I had for breakfast...

Sunday It Is

Driving back from breakfast (Lake Murray Cafe) with S. and a walk around (Well, a good chunk of it) Lake Murray I listened to Wait Wait Don't Tell Me and laughed uproariously to Jewel's interview with Peter Sagal. It was funny AND touching.  I think I will get a hold of her autobiography.  Here's a link to the segment. It is about five minutes long.

I finished another crossword, one from the La Mesa Courier I think it was.  I had to look up nearly every clue.  It was rather discouraging.  Some of those clues, they were just too clever for me!

That is all for today!

My Last Post Was WHEN??

It has been a while, and the pictures are piling up.  Some of them have been posted on the FB, if they look familiar.


September 12th, a Saturday

I was driving back from geocaching and saw this fine piece of machinery.  I stopped to take picture, and found there is a motorcycle shop there.  Right there, in the Egypt Garage!  Who knew?


I was entertaining thoughts of buying it...but I guess not.


September 13th, a Sunday

This is nothing but was to be a humorous selfie, except you can't read the sign.  It say something about Do Not Enter or something, but it's facing the wrong way, you would have to be IN the Refuge to read it.  I am on the legal side.  For once!




September 18th, a Friday

The construction guys say it never happened, but the AC actually was working on the 18th, just that one day.  Here is proof!


This was delivered to me by a courier.


I found a lake when I left work that afternoon!




September 22nd, a Tuesday

The Danish fishing boat Grenen, in a harbor?


More pictures of the boat.  It needs some serious TLC.



September 24th

Two lizards trapped between my screens over the vents, meant to keep rats out. I made a bigger hole, and one lizard managed an escape.  I don't know if the other one ever did, and I'm afeared to look!


While I had the camera out I tried to get a pic of this hummingird, I believe truly is a ruby-throated hummingbird.


And another of the chilies, as they are so red and photogenic.


It's either evaporative cooling, or drying a shirt that I don't care to put through the dryer.  Why not both?


Fooling around with a prism and a plastic sandwich.



September 26th, a Saturday

I got a call from the apartment manager this morning that there were BEES outside!  I took a look, not so many.


Later on it got bit noisy outside, so I looked out the window.  More bees!



A LOT more bees!


Through the spy hole in the front door.  The white thing is a dreamcatcher.  Some Indian school sends me them several times a year, along with notepads and such.


The bee guy came and killed most of the bees, I guess, or maybe took them away.  I didn't watch his work.  All that is left is bee bodies, though.  The have to get a key for the little room to see if any bees are in there.  The door has not been opened in decades.  It's a big mystery waiting to be solved!.


And that is pretty much it for today, yet another day in which I have not ventured out of doors.

Out and About In Otay

I walked 3.9 miles today while geocacing in the Otay River valley.  Boy, are my feet sore!

I found five caches and did not find one.  I found two caches earlier this morning in the area of State College.

It's a bit cooler today, and there was a nice breeze some of the time.  So, not too bad out there.  I wore a big hat and SPF rated pants and long sleeve shirt, but no sun block.

That's probably all for today, I'm going to go take a nap!

Too Hot

It is pretty hot here, up to a hundred each day.  Got all the fans going here and at work.  I hope they get the new AC working at work sometime soon, but they say it will be a couple of weeks.  Well, it'll still be hot then, I'm sure!

This picture may take a bit of explaining.  Someone posted on Facebook one of them scary graphical posts (This ain't it, but it's pretty interesting all the same.) about rats coming up into YOUR TOILET via the sewer drain.

So I posted something about being armed at all times in the bathroom, and said while I didn't have a firearm, I DID have a Gerber Mark II Survival knife that I kept handy, and I sent this picture to the poster so they would know I tell the truth.




I found it is very hard to hold a double-edged knife securely in one's mouth, and I am very lucky I didn't hurt myself.  Don't try this at home, kids!

I saw this liquid tight 90 degree fitting and its accompanying piece of liquid tight flex (World's short piece??) and just had to take a picture.  The yardstick is for scale, in place of a banana.




Lastly we have two pictures I took today of chiles growing in the upside-down grower thing.  They just popped up, I didn't see them the other day!






That is about it for today, thanks for reading!
