We are doing ok, life is throwing some challenges at the moment but Nothing serious/major.

We have our first real vacation together in 9 years coming up first week of October, really looking forward to that. Bought first class plane tickets and everything.


How are you healing? COVId is now ravaging through my work, fucking things up pretty good.

So it's a roller coaster.  I have great days when I feel almost normal, then days when I am like, "wtf, over?"

So...I dunno. I think I'm getting better.  Sort of?  



I'm trying to not stress about it, cuz stressing doesn't help.

Baby steps, keep taking them. Measure your success weekly, not daily or hourly.  You are getting there, I know it’s super frustrating though.

Good attitude kitties. I am sorry you are going through such a hard recovery. It took me a long time to recover from my hospitalization. It took me a while to get where I could even go upstairs to my kids room.  One day soon you will be like wow did I just have a simi-normal day? That will be a good feeling but it does take time.  Keep the head up. And keep hanging in there.

Cool humid weather coming in bothers me to some degree, otherwise not bad at all.  
My young bitch had her first litter. Only one female, though.

I will defintely post pics.

We are flying in to Boston and before we drive up we are going to check out some colonial history stuff, and then hitting New Hampshire just for some cooler weather, fall colors and actual water to see. Plan on doing a lot of hiking and stuff like that. It’s basically the antithesis of AZ and sometimes I need that.

It’s defintely worth a trip if you’ve never been, I love it there.

I think “warm” is their cold, does it ever drop below 70 that far south?

One of the best so far; very devoted. Great milk production, but she's getting thin. She is getting boneless pork ribs as well as a nursing/puppy dog food to keep her going, supplemental calcium, cottage cheese, etc. Her mom got milk fever a couple times so we're being aggressive in supplementing it for Zoe.

That’s really cool. Have you ever looked into your family that came before the immigration to the colonies? I’ve had some luck tracing my ancestry back to some ancestors that came over around 1760, but after that I started having trouble tracing folks in England and Scotland, wasn’t really able to figure out even who the parents were of the people that took the boat ride.

I cut my way into an attic that had no ventilation yesterday. It was easily 150 in there, probably worse. I grabbed a wood truss with a bare hand and it was too hot to touch. Worked about 20 minutes up there and almost ended up in the hospital.


I’m kind of fortunate though. We moved to the burbs north of Phoenix and it’s more manageable, especially during monsoon season. More clouds and wind. We still hit 115 here but it’s usually a few degrees cooler. I at least get a little relief when I come home.

I wouldn’t change the main breaker on a 400 amp hot panel today, I wanted the power company to come pull the meter so I could safely do it. Boss muttered some BS to me about “commitment and responsibility”.  Dude used to be my friend.


I grow closer and closer to finding an inside job everyday, something with AC.

Yeah, I hit a disgraced/bastard noble line in the 1600s, so I can document back to William the Bastard and all that. Probably back to Charlemagne.

Had the weirdest thing happen yesterday. I Was running a mini jack hammer and leaning into it really hard. I had my the side of my abdomen on the top of it as I leaned into it, no problems or pain or anything,  I’ve done it a million times. All of the sudden it just felt like my rib caved into the back of my abdomen. Put me on the ground. Rib broken pretty good, they said I was lucky I didn’t lacerate my liver. Weirdest damn thing, I went from being fine to feeling like I got shot again, my body position hadn’t changed, there no was no pain or discomfort prior to it happening etc.
