The Fun Never Stops

As yesterday was the third day in the entire month of July that didn’t feature a thunderstorm, and today’s storm didn’t show up until late afternoon, the Lawn Guy [no, he isn’t from ‘Lawn Guy Land’] harvested the ‘hay’. Afterwards he stopped by to tell me that the outside outlet on the the 4X4 in front of my Mother’s house fell over from ‘dry rot’. Well, the post was weakened by being in the ground, but I have a feeling the fact that there is paint scar the same color as the lawn tractor might have something to do with its current condition. I will add it to the list.

The marigolds in the front of my house are ‘pining for the fjords’. It was some sort of fungus that wiped them out, but the roses are thriving.

Linux still hates me. I downloaded some of the software I use in Windows and installed it. Apparently the installation was still going on in the background when I had to switch to Win 7 and restarted the machine. It locked up tighter than a drum. It would have been nice if there had been a warning about the background processes and a chance to abort, but that didn’t happen.

I have configured Thunderbird for e-mail, but it definitely doesn’t work the way I do. It is going to take a lot of screwing around to make it do most of what Pegasus does for me in Windows.

The cats are being a real PITA with Sox trying to break into the bathroom to see what Ringo is getting to eat, and Ringo trying to break out to eat kibble. Meanwhile Excise freaks out if I raise my voice, convinced that I’m yelling at him. As a result I spend a lot time evicting Sox, returning Ringo, and calming Excise. Property just snickers from the top of the refrigerator.
