Deck update – These pictures are the deck after three weeks. Hopefully with some good weather (there is always rain in the forecast) this week will be a big push – sleeves on posts, railings and the start of the pergola. Note to self: Order a pallet of chocolate.
This is weird – I order something from Amazon. The same day I received the item, I also received an email asking for a review. I do reviews but only after I have used the item. I find so many reviews that say, “just received and it looks good.” I want to be sure it doesn’t fall apart a week later.
The last days – Tuesday is our primary election day. The commercials are getting on my last nerve. We have a hotly contested federal senatorial contest going on. The incumbent isn’t running so two people from out of state bought a house in our state and claimed residency so they could run. They know nothing about the issues in our state. One is carrying a gun in every commercial. He’s pandering to the gun people. That’s a huge turnoff for me. I’m not looking for a candidate who knows how to operate a gun. I’m looking for someone with leadership and negotiation skills so something can get done. No bully pulpits please.
And muting that! – This is not a good time for any company to buy airtime. We are muting all commercials. I do not know the latest drugs that are too expensive to buy or what they treat. I rarely know what they treat but I know the side effects which include explosive diarrhea and death.
Always change – I live in a development of about 30 town houses. We are having turnover. People who live here are “downsizers” – older, retired or about to. Many have been here for a long time, so they are “elderly.” (Gosh I hope no one uses that word to describe me ever!) One home was just sold and three more are going on the market. Two are the result of aging with a spouse transitioning to a nursing home and the other moving to a smaller place. The third one is a job move. Just about the time I learn someone’s name, they move. It’s like the baristas at Starbucks.
So how was your week?
