Got a ladder... need to get up and check my gutters.


If the roof isn't too tall, just video the gutter with a long selfie stick.

I did the gutter thing a couple days ago. All the slop in them was frozen though, so I got what I could. Hopefully it's enough.

He's getting half dose. They actually even cut them in half for me. But if I find it online... I still need a script even for a dog, right?

Gave him a half pill last night. On our walk this morning he was wanting to jump around and play with every dog we saw. I think he's gonna pull through. lol


Yes, in my experience, you’d have to provide an RX on online orders. I’m no dog doctor. If it were my pup, a half pill today and tomorrow and then if the pill could be halved again, I’d do that for two days, then cut him off.

You don’t want him addicted, stop working and voting blue.

Took a Pyrex dish of chili with me to work. My lunchbag gets scrubs folded up in the bottom and my food on top. Get to work, put food in fridge, take bag n scrubs to locker room to change into my nurse costume.

Lid leaked. Looks like I have a squirt of chit down yhe leg of my pants.

Gotta have the supervisor get me a clean pair from surgery.

It's an anti-inflammatory/pain reliever like Ibuprofen. I think he's probably not gonna get strung out, ya know?

He's addicted to treats, though. Anxious

8,000 steps-4.2 miles. Not quite Deadeyedick's 5 miles, but on the board.
He probably has a better view for his walks. Mine was nearly entirely in the basement.

I was gonna say, you’ve got quite a stride. Takes me around 10,000 to reach 4 miles. I’m guessing you’re on a treadmill?


Lately about half of my morning walks have been in the dark. Gonna need to adjust my internal clock.

I don't know what kind of step count you get with a treadmill but I sure get different numbers with GPS gizmos. A typical 5 miler using my cell says about 10,400 but my Garmin golf watch will say around 9,800. The cell only updates about every 10-15 minutes so I'm thinking it really just uses a distance conversion into a typical stride to count steps. I'm motivating so my stride is much longer than an average walk.

My fitbit says daily average is just under 12k steps. Some days are 6k some days are 25k. Gridlife events I'll hit 50k or more.

But 12k is 5.5 miles according to the thing. I don't think I ever measured or entered stride length. Dunno if it uses GPS, but most of my movement is inside a large building so I don't know if GPS works there.

I still am a fat lazy fvck. Steps don't mean a damn thing it's how you do those steps. I rarely break a leisurely pace cause then I get short of breath and sweaty. Still, can't imagine how bad I'd be if I didn't do those steps.

Yeah, well... can't argue that.

Mornin' dudes. Up and got the puppy dog walked. I've been trying to fast for a week now and I always end up eating something. Today, dammit... I mean bidness. No coffee or creamer this morning so the last time I ate was a few biscoff crackers at around 8pm last night.

Shooting for tomorrow after the walk. 36-ish hours.

Good Sunday Morning! It's 60° on the way to 66° and overcast.

Overnight a lot more trees turned color. Let the leaves come tumbling down, but watch out for Stagger Lee.

Moderate day today. Sunny and mid 50's low 60's.

Gotta fix a neighbors computer then maybe head out for lunch. A new diner opened up last week just around the corner doing just breakfast and lunch. So far it's got great reviews from the town folks. Will prolly check it out.

Now that schools done, it feels odd to have some extra spare time.

Exactly how we looked at it.
Speaking of church, went to confession yesterday for the first time in 39 years.
For penance, still have about 102,497 Hail Mary's to go.

What is the motivation for the fasting? Getting to be a fattie?

Nope... just wanna do it. I weighed myself this morning... 187 lbs.

Various health benefits to fasting. Especially for longer periods of time.

Never heard of fasting until I was in college. I went back to my old stomping grounds, Palama Settlement, to help out with the Pop Warner football team. My old head coach, John Sharp, was still there but had converted to Islam. At some point during the season he mentioned Ramadan and the fasting from food and drink from sunrise to sundown the entire month. As a 21 year old, I was pretty amazed that someone could be so devoted to their religion that they would not eat or even drink water for that long.

The colors this year in MA have been awesome.

Lots of leaves on the ground here and still a lot on the trees. One of the benefits of apt dwelling, I don't have to rake them. We have landscapers to do that stuff.

When I was a house dweller, I'd usually just shred the leaves with the mulching lawn mower then rake and/or blow them into the garden and flower beds around the yard as winter cover. It adds a blanket during the winter for the perennials.

I'd also add a layer or two in the compost bin and mix it in and let the bugs do the work during the winter to break it down into rich soil. I brought a couple 55 gallon plastic drums home from work, drilled a bunch of 1" holes in the sides for air transfer. Used them for a compost bin - layers of dirt, green matter/grass clippings, leaves/brown matter, egg shells, etc)

I'd tip the barrels over every couple of weeks and roll it around to mix things up. It worked pretty good. It was not odd to see the compost bin steam a little in the winter as the stuff decayed into rich soil. Compost is like black gold for plants and it should smell sort of sweet and earthy. If your compost pile smells nasty, your are not doing it right.

In the spring, I'd till the leaves and compost into the soil to mix in nature's free organic matter along with some composted cow $hit. Maybe sprinkle in some slow release commercial fertilizer and some epsom salts but that was pretty much it.

A rich soil makes for easier gardening and gardening should not be stressful. It's rather therapeutic for me.

(Gardening is different than farming. Farming is a tough business while gardening is a hobby)

Another unseasonably warm day today. Calling for partly sunny and a high in the low 60's. Stewing up some beef stew in the crock pot. Do up a batch of veggie soup too. This will be for some lunches this week.

Prolly do some steak tips and taters for an early supper before the fleet of kids come knocking on the door and beg for candy.

Was gonna take a shower but no running water. Apparently the town is doing some maintence on a burst pipe down the road so they shut off the water. Supposed to be fixed and back online sometime this afternoon.

First world problems. I don't think I stink that bad but then again, as I get older my sense of smell drifts away.

McCullers vs Syndergard............ I may be wrong but I see the Phillies dipping into that stressed bullpen early.I think the toughest thing the Astros face tonight is that opening night crowd in unfriendly confines but i think they'll handle it.
