Cold again, mid to high 30s Fahrenheit early then slightly warmer and plenty damp. Yesterday started warmer but cooled all day long.
Spent most of the day doing pickups. After taking the dog to the vet for vax that he needed to continue going to his training class. Then I was feeling poorly so I laid down for a bit. Phone didn’t stop ringing during that hour. Didn’t ring before or after. The b@stards know. All in all, not super efficient use of time.
Picked up D1 and spent the late afternoon thrifting. She needed some stuff for the theater, so we looked while I picked up a bunch of media, and some resale items. B&W speakers, for example. Even with the scuffs they should sell for $175-200 the pair. They were in the bins at the Goodwill outlet. There were several other “good score” items as well. D1 was impressed. We didn’t get her props.
Took the dog to his last ‘training’ class. The woman teaching is incredible with the dogs. They WANT to do what she tells them. All the dogs made good progress, and their owners learned a bunch of stuff too.
Today I’ll be headed out to my client’s house.(assuming nothing bad happens to my back while I sleep)
My back finally ‘popped’ while stretching in a parking lot, and the worst of the pain abated when everything was properly aligned once again. Took an extra day because I didn’t want to use the pain reliever. Lesson learned. On the plus side, the yoga roller and the inversion table worked to get me back on track without chiropractic visits. One of my goals was to have the stuff and the knowledge to deal with the situation without recourse to pro help. Now to get started on prophylaxis.
I like western civilization. I know a lot of people that wouldn’t be around if not for our high level of civilization. But. It is under threat from within and without. Make your plans for doing without. Without rule of law. Without enough food. Without solid and dependable utilities. Without civilization in fact.
Stack the stuff you can’t create or replace or do without. Stack it high.
