Fri. Aug. 7, 2020 – am I forgetting something?

Hot and humid.  We’re on the edge of a system, so we might get rain, or not.

Yesterday was plenty hot enough.  It was ok in the shade if you were standing still.  Everywhere else, it was too hot.

I got very little done yesterday.  My back was hurting, so I took it easy.  I did sort through a bunch of ebay stuff that I could divert to one of the local auctions.  Found a bunch of stuff too.

Seems like I must have done more than that, but I’ll be jigged if I can think of what it was.

Sometime this morning I’ll go for another chiropractic visit.  I hope I get some better movement this time.  Apparently both of my siblings and my dad suffered with sciatica.  It’s new to me though.  I feel like some stretching and some adjustment ought to get it fixed for now.  Later today I’ve got an auction pickup.  Some hobby stuff, some household stuff, some ebay stuff.  I need it to not rain in the afternoon so I can use my pickup for the pickup.

I feel like I’m forgetting something about the date, but can’t think what it might be.

Last night the scanner had a multi-agency task force working a drug buy with surveillance in my neighborhood.  It’s worth reminders like that to have the scanner running.   That’s the second time I’ve overheard them working only a mile or two from my house.   I do live in the city, so I shouldn’t be surprised, and I’m not REALLY surprised, but I don’t like the confirmation either.  Bad people are everywhere.  Keep your head on a swivel if you are out and about.

And stock up on whatever you think you might want if the economy collapsed.  Take a look at a couple of recent posts by John Wilder, and Peter Grant  wrt how they see the economy coming apart and what you might want to do about it.  I don’t see any point in duplicating their efforts…

I do see a lot of advantage in getting your financial house in order, and stacking stuff high….
