2.5km walk! And I didn't have to stop to stretch my back! Oh... I wanted to but I just said F that! I thought, if A can put up with all that Calleeforneeahhh traffic, least I can do is endure a little excrutiating nerve pain. I feel energized! Although... I may need a jump start from a heavy cranking amps battery to get me out of bed on the morrow. I ain't no spring bunny when it comes to mobility eh?

Sweet Jaysus, what a night. We meant to leave Vegas Sunday morning and drive through to San Diego, leaving around 10 and arriving by 4 pm. About twenty miles north of the NEC/CA State line some poor bastard flipped his SUV over the divider landing in the southbound side of the interstate and killing himself and sending his girlfriend to the hospital. Blam.

Every Sunday, even without this complication, the traffic out of Vegas heading toward LA is denser than buffalo spoor. The Nevada Highway Patrol locked down two of the three lanes to investigate and clean up. The traffic backed up thicker and thicker and further and further. By the time we reached Whiskey Pete's near Perris, you couldn't get on or off, and we were a little low on gas. We exited into Whiskey Pete's casino and hotel and service station complex by crawling down the shoulder, and we were stuck there. A couple of hours later, we thought it might be better to crawl than do nothing, so we started out of the parking lot, but we never made it. We moved three feet in an hour inching our way toward the exit. Finally we gave up in disgust and ducked into a parking spot and retreated intot he casino, which as anyone who has been in one of these hellholes knows, is a nightmare of flashing lights, bells, zombified slave souls and bizarre neon.

After several hours sipping coffee and checking the scene, the parking lot had not changed at all, it was solid metal. Rumors flew--a body had been found, a crime scene investigation was ongoing, etc., etc., but no=-one knew the whole story and no-one had any idea when things would clear. We threw up our hands and booked a room, and retreated up tot he 16th floor from where we could see the endless stretch of cares crawling south on the 15, and not moving at all in the parking lot of Whiskey Pete's. We shut down, watched TV, slept for a couple of hours.

Finally at ten at night the southbound side began moving at 20 to 30 and the parking lot thinned out. By 11, the parking lot was almost6 cleared and we decided to dodge the inevitable rush hour of Monday morning by driving through the night. Everything went copacetically after that, we cruised into California at 70 and made our way down through Temecula into San Diego by 4 AM with rest stops. I then crashed into my bunk at home and slept like a cold brick for four hours.

The trip to Vegas was for a gathering of old friends, always enjoyuable, but Gawdawlmighty, what a price. :D

A

Surely you don't keep those poor puppies in the garage when you're gone! No heat, no food, no company...why don't you take them with you?

I built a bit of fence in the garage to finish off the dog enclosure so that the chocolate lab doesn't charge out of the building any time I drive up and open the garage door. Now the gate has something to latch against (since the stuff that used to sit in that space has been long gone and allowed dogs to run through the gap). Neighbors up the street had their truck jacked up, put on landscaping pavers (that were stolen from the yard across the street from me) and the wheels stolen, so it seems prudent to go ahead and park the car in the garage at night. Now I can open the door without a dog racing out to hop in the car with me, just to ride back into the garage.

On the other hand, if you are nearby before it's down my gullet, this here chicken fricot I just manipulated into a soup/stew orgasm is yours for the ladling.

As for the morrow, Mum's 88th Bday, two dozen roses (red and white) with pink carnations and Baby's Breath and fronds mixed in, a can of frozen lobster, cracked steamed fresh today 1.5 pound lobsters (3 which I will pick up in the morning), 4 small bottles of her fav sparkling wine, a box of Ganong Delecto mint chocolates, a fruit cake, a frozen ice cream cake in copious vanilla combinations, a rather nice BDay card... I'll stop there. She's been through a lot more ringers in her life than most of us will ever experience. She suffered just delivering me fer fuck sake! and then had to put up with trying to make me a decent human being. Not an easy task but I like to think she did a decent job... as best she could, given what she had to work with.

You people be nice to my boy! We didn't have much when he was growing up and everything he has he owes to me! I taught him all he knows and to always wear his rubbers when it's raining outside or he'll catch his death of cold! And to eat all of his peas or to take at least three bites of everything on his plate! So if he shows up without his rubbers and it's raining let me know! And if you see him eating someone and taking fewer than three bites let me know as well!

It's so hard raising Galactic Overlords, you have NO idea! And they never call or come to see me even though I made them what they are today! I went Without so that they could reach the pinnacles of Galactic Overlordness and this is the thanks I get!

That guy with the Google Earth is certainly impressed with the Permian Basin. Yes I know about it, I've driven through many times and flown over a lot. I worked for a geologist for a couple of years in college and always liked maps and looking at the ground from the plane.

I live about a mile from a pad. There are six different gas wells that cross under my property. Not sure how they manage that, but I get statements for six wells every year.

In a thousand years all of these spots will be overgrown, relics, or pads for windmill towers.

Just 'cuz I don't believe in snow does not mean I don't suffer some. We had to call an emergency plumber last night and in order he had to replace a broken faucet from the hot water tank to the washing mac hine, and the copper piping supporting it, and the drain pipe for the washing machine into the waste line in the garage and then the waste line itself.

So today I had to rebuild the timber behind the faucets, cut a drywall section to match the part that had been torn out, replaster in two coats, move everything out of the garage and scrub the whole area down to get rid of the greasy grime from the old pipes, move everything back in and reconnect the washing machine only to discover it had an internal leak on top of it all.

It has been a one-goddamn-thing after another sort of day.

Fuggit.

If you have on-demand be sure you have soft water and as few minerals in it as possible. Otherwise you'll be replacing it every few years and the mineral deposits build up to the point where the unit fails. At least, that's the experience out here in The Wild West.

Every year my friends to the North and East start manifesting signs of low-grade subclinical insanity, posting thermometer readings and a lot of blather about some imaginary visitation from above they call "snow". This epidemic of hivernal madness seems to affect their smartphones and cameras as well, throwing the white-balance chip all to hell. I cannot, for the life of me, figure out why. Sunspots, mayhap?

It was a lovely day in Los Angeles today and Barky and I went around having father-and-son time to our hearts' content. I walked the dog tonight, wearing a light jacket to accommodate the coolness of November evenings, but the skies were clear and the evenings winds were balmy.

So do I, except for the generator. Some few months ago I found a bucket of food, freeze dried and sealed in nitrogen, enough to last two people for 3 days. It was USD 50, so I bought it. The food is good until 2032, but I probably won't be. I also have Sawyer water filters in the house and cars, a larger capacity one for the house -- these are back-flushable and good for a LOT of gallons.

You can also kill viruses and bacteria in water if you put the clearest water you have in clear plastic soda/water/whatever bottles (I believe they are supposed to be marked at "1" plastics). Put these in bright sunlight for several hours, or three hours on a reflective material. UV kills the bad stuff -- this is being used in remote African villages to give them clean drinking water and it's a LOT cheaper than other ways.

Truck stop bears don't make no nevermind a this here good ol boy. As is said... I'm loaded fer bear.

Unfortunately, my only recourse when a lady of questionable mental acuity responds to my advert by telephone at 22:50h, thereby waking me up, and becomes rude when I inform her that the advertisement clearly states "before 6PM" and also that I will return her call on the morrow, is to return said call at 04:50h, whereupon she understands exactly how rude it is to waken a person at an obviously inappropriate time of day to enquire about the bottom line price for a truly ugly fleece blanet advertised for the price of $5. BTW... I thereupon decided to accept the bid from the Red Cross and immediately deleted the advert. Perhaps I should have better known the "target market" for a blanket with two Chinese Virginia White Tailed Deer dyed upon it might be a tad on the wild side?

Wanna buy a truck?
