it absolutely poured today, on and off. and it was around 80 degrees with humidity around 90%. felt just like the rain in Florida. not exactly the best thing when you're hoping for some dry days to take the corn off and paint the barns. i wouldn't be shocked if we got close to 2 inches today.
i had an interesting day of waiting. waiting for the plumber, waiting for the Fed Ex guy. it's kind of funny, as i remember when i lived out here alone. whenever i wanted someone to call or show up, i always did something else. i'd take a shower and the phone would ring. take a shit and there's a knock on the door. no such luck today.
the plumber showed up around 2 to see what the fuck is up with our water softener. i laughed as none of the shit he brought with him actually worked, so he took a sample of the water and will return sometime. didn't say when, but this is all under warranty, so i don't really care.
the Fed Ex guy finally showed up around 5 with my wine. so i'm enjoying a glass of red while typing this. should be interesting to see how quickly i drink this. i'm not a big wine drinker but just felt i needed to upgrade my alcoholism finally. so expect some ramblings about wine every now and then.
i got a closer look at my cat Michael Jackson last night. looked like a young coyote got him on his right side and has rendered his hind legs useless. i noticed this as the dumb ass was trying to climb underneath my truck. last i saw him he was going under the corn crib. i didn't see him when i fed them today, so i figure he has probably moved on. hopefully no longer in pain.
The Bridge last night was good. it didn't answer many questions but brought forth some more. and a few more twists and a huge plot point for the next season. which will come in 2014.
Duck Dynasty made me laugh, as always.
the New York Rangers play late tonight out in Arizona. hopefully they start the season off good. also, there is some playoff baseball and the NFL this evening. so, after The Big Bang Theory it will be nothing but sports.
hopefully i will get cracking on sending out some poems tomorrow. i don't always like a Friday submissions but i really don't feel like waiting until next week. so, a morning of typing awaits me. unless of course i get the nerve to type around 2 in the morning. who knows.
that's all for now. hope this finds everyone well.
