67

Posted on Monday, December 11th, 2017 at 6:45 am

Morning of the 67th.  I was half expecting to be in Elgin today to celebrate, but that fell through.  And I appreciate being home and the chance to be lazy.  The last of the smoked boudin is being thawed.  (Discontinued production.)

The clutch on the truck is fixed, and it feels more like a racing machine now.  It was over $200 more than I expected, but that is mostly due to the heavy duty parts being more expensive.  Still…  But it rolls well.  I just need to gain the habit of using the hair trigger.

.

Package from Amazon due today.  Silicon ice cube trays, meat tenderizer.  I got some sirloin on sale to test the tenderizer.  Second alpaca sweater due on Wednesday.  It was the second to last one available.  I was waiting on a better selection of colors with a restocking, but that failed to materialize, so I grabbed just before they were history.

.

Tomorrow, I make contact with the first dentist on my list.  But today, I laze.

Ugh, it’s snowing.  (Truck will be ready to pick up tomorrow morning.)

Clutch

Clutch started slipping on the pickup, so it’s staying parked, while I sit out the weekend at home.  Rained today, with more on the way, so just as well.  Truck goes in the shop tomorrow.  Better here than sitting idle at the shop for the weekend.

Got started on Vince’s site overhaul, though only lightly thus far.  But I did get the footer graphic made, Vince’s V² by Vince Pawless.  It will lend itself to the text links and credits well.

Well stocked for the week, with rain and cold weather in the forecast.  Starting to make a dent in the freezer.

All in all, I’m doing well.  Digestion still an issue, but not debilitating.  Otherwise I have energy, focus, and inspiration, so I can’t complain.
