It was a crisp 42 degrees outside this morning as I left for another day in front of a desk top. “Everyone” ‘says’ this coming winter will be a harsh one, but we’ll see.
Yesterday however was as nice as a fall day could be and instead of vegetating in front of a TV and watching football-which I only have a passing interest in, drive the car through the Shenandoah and took in the scenery. No pics as driving and manipulating a smart phone are tasks I have yet to master.
Son unit had a wedding to go to over the weekend, a college school friend, who tied the knot at the all too early age of 22. Don’t know about you, but I certainly had no strong urge to marry at that age and the way things worked out, marrying @ the ripe old age of 29 worked out.
Texted him about did he have a good time and did his car behave itself. to which I got the terse & economical verbiage of “Yes and yes”. The upside I suppose is he’s communicating in semi-whole sentences instead to a series of sub-linguistic grunts which we were supposed to be able to interpret.
Was taking to one of my neighbors about a tree on our property that we both agree needs trimming back. Its leaning towards his property which makes cutting what needs cutting back a bit tricky. spoke of getting on a ladder to tie a rope to the limbs and pull them towards our house as they are cut. Was told I am too old to get on a ladder now.
Right. I walk weather permit8ng 3.4 miles a day and I’m too old to get on a ladder?!
