79 degrees this morning. Started raining about 6:30 a.m., so couldn’t sit out on the patio in spite of excellent weather. I really don’t like rain. I prefer sunny weather, even though I know rain is necessary. I have never considered rain to be romantic. Of course, it is one of those things that … More Summer 2013 July 31
Warming up. 74 degrees this morning. Feeling now like a possible rain. Trying to find a good repair/maintenance company to work on the house/yard etc. is difficult. There are a lot of good companies, but a lot of incompetent ones also. “Angies List” is good sometimes, sometimes it isn’t.
Relatively cool weather this morning (70 degrees), it is turning out to be a cool summer. I really noticed a lot of difference in the heat between here and Topeka, Kansas (it seemed a lot more muggy in Topeka, not sure why, maybe the altitude). Speaking of time, one reason I don’t watch many videos … More Summer 2013 July 29
Relatively cool this morning (73 degrees). Saturday and Sunday I am frequently the only person at ATC, although there are other “regulars” at that time, they are primarily weight lifters. (This is in the 4 a.m. to 5 a.m. time frame. During the week (primarily Monday through Thursday), I expect our little community is … More Summer 2013 July 28
Warmer than I expected this morning, about 73 degrees, the point at which I try to decide if I will a long sleeve or short sleeve shirt and shorts or swearpants before I exercise. One thing I really resent on all computer/technological products (and AT & T DSL) is the apparent assumption by the sellers … More Summer 2013 July 27
Very cool this morning, 66 degrees. I really get tired of the computer companies making junk and then trying to charge excessive rates to “fix’ their mistakes. Latest case was a Google Matrix 7 that failed after 7 months. Staples refused to honor the guarantee (even though I had an “extended warranty” and they admitted … More Summer 2013 July 26
Coolish (70 degrees) morning, not near as muggy. Good day for cycling etc. Went to dentist today about “tooth implant” (actually two of them). I need to bite the bullet (so to speak) and get it done. It seems like a lot of money, but if I don’t do it I will probably regret it. … More Summer 2013 July 25
78 degrees this morning, possibility of rain. Good to get back to my routine of walking/cycling/reading the newspapers etc. Listening to “Steve Jobs” while I walk again, finished “Man’s Search for Meaning”. (Still trying to live the lessons I learned from both books. Really enjoyed the Reunion. It is nice to have several days to … More Summer 2013 July 24
Heavy rain, thunder and wind greeted us this morning as we drove into Lakeland. I’m not sure if I have ever seen lightning like that. The Summer, 2013 Courter/Wherry Reunion is over. I always look forward to it and always feel some regret when it ends. Otherwise, hectic day, trying to catch up etc.
Extremely busy day. Up early, breakfast, took Angela, Kali and Katherine to OKC, then on. Caught up with e-mails etc. getting ready for an early day tomorrow.
