Not much going on here at the Amesbury house this morning. It’s a very cold 19° degrees (wind chill 4°), our faucets re dripping, the dogs have had their early outside business meeting, we’ve tackled breakfast and perused the extra-large Sunday paper. Not a great day for going outside but there are those who are feeling the wrath of old man winter a lot worse than us. Take Sioux City, South Dakota for example where the temperature is a balmy -21°.
I’ve been slacking off with the blog of late and I apologize but then again you know of my on again, off again love of the pastime. I like to blame it on my age and aches and pains but it’s also mental. Try as I might to get motivated it’s hard anymore, especially during the holidays. December for whatever reason has never taken a liking to me. Forgive me but there always this sigh of relief when January first rolls around.
Anyway to keep myself amused I will try to go through over 200 rolls of Wheaties I’ve accumulated over the years, in search of that doubled die, that D over S and any other silly screw-ups that I can find. First though I will need to con my grandson Lucas out of his microscope in hopes that I can see these errors. My 20-20 has run out of numbers.
I want also to jump back on my book, which is just about half-finished. Like so many other things I work on it in spurts, or when the spirit (or spirits) moves me. The more I work on it the better I feel in that I’m speaking my mind about my treasure hunting experiences, travels, friends and foes. I’ve met a lot of great tekkies over the years but I’ve also had run ins with hypocrites, bullshit artists and people who simply befriended me for their personal gain. I know, pretty much life in general, but it still feels good to get it off my chest and put it on paper.
So der ya go! Sorry this wasn’t a more positive post or one that offered up a few tips on finding more goodies….just wanted you to know that I am alive and kicking (well just barely). Hope to offer up something more informative in a few days. In the meantime stay warm, be safe in your travels and please bring your pets inside.
