Day: September 27, 2023

Wed. Sept. 27, 2023 – I’m a lumberjack and I’m OK… and a locksmith too

Slightly cooler, then just as hot as ever. Well, high 90s, not low 100s but it will feel the same. We’re on the downslope toward winter, but still have a way to go. It certainly got hot enough yesterday afternoon for me to be moving slowly when outdoors.

Speaking of which, I got little done. I got to my rent house, intending to finish the lock work, and discovered I’d left the locks at home. Brought the re-key kit, but left the locks. Ended up taking the trash to my dumpster which is nearby so it wasn’t a total loss.

Had my auctioneer beg off for this week. Dang. I was on a roll and had momentum. That’s gonna delay getting stuff out of here. It will mean I can focus on other parts of the list though.

Like getting this tree branch off my roof. I have a plan. It might be dumb and foolhardy, but it’s a plan. I think it can be done safely and without a lot of fuss. We’ll see. Then once I find the locks, I’ll head to the rent house and finish up there. I can continue to an auction pickup, or head to school to pickup the kid when I’m done with that.

Should be a full day. If I don’t falter.

Keep improving. Keep stacking.


And I would be remiss if I didn’t mention another absent friend, Dave Hardy, or OFD as he was usually known here. It’s been five years since his passing, and I miss his perspective and (cough) willingness to share. The religious aspects, from someone who rediscovered his faith, were particularly interesting to me. Raise a glass to “Absent Friends”.
