i took a nap this afternoon that was completely unexpected. i feel like old age has finally decided i am on the back half of the circle. and this was after a rare decent night of sleep.
had my truck towed to this local mechanic today. never used him before, but it's maybe 15 miles closer than the place i normally take it to. hopefully, i'll know by tomorrow what is wrong with it. mom and i came to the conclusion today if it costs more than $500 to fix it, we're going to junk it. so, part of me hopes it won't be that much to fix.
the tow truck driver was this old dude that talked like he had about a billion marbles in his mouth. that was fun trying to figure out what the fuck he was saying. at least he knew where to take it to.
Manchester United scored 3 goals in the second half last night to defeat Liverpool 3-1. that was a nice way to finish up the tour.
Monday Night Raw was pretty good last night. i didn't like when they ended it with the contract signing...the match before that would have been a better closer. just my opinion, i've only watched longer than most of the performers have been alive.
the Yankees got just enough runs and some great pitching last night to beat Detroit 2-1. they face yet another former cy young winner tonight. after they face another tomorrow, they will be the first team ever to do that. hopefully the winning can continue tonight.
other than that tonight, i'll be watching Deadliest Catch and Tyrant. looking forward to both of those.
i didn't get anything done i wanted to today. besides the nap, got some news i didn't want to get today.
i heard back from Brian at Zygote in My Coffee on my poetry submission from back in June. he has announced that Zygote is closing down. the site will remain up, as will the archives. it is also the end of Tainted Coffee Press as well. a BIG thank you to Brian for publishing me for over a decade. i truly appreciate it. my best to him and his family.
so, i now have a stack of poems to send out here soon. my apologies to a few of you editors out there before the emails start flying.
it feels like it is going to rain. at least, that's what my back is saying.
lord knows how late i'm going to be up tonight. this feels like one of those days where i pick up some paint brushes and just go nuts until i run out of steam. if that happens, i'll be sure to take some pictures of it.
that's all for today. hope this finds everyone well.
peace and chicken grease my enemies...
