Actually, it's rare that we hear or see any aircraft here. Occasionally a military craft will fly over going to Ft. Campbell, but most of the time we have little to no skyward activity. Quite unlike the environment I was used to when I lived in Washington, DC. I definitely do not miss hearing/seeing the Medivac choppers buzz like insects overhead. It's quiet and serene here. Amen!!!!

You have a limit on WiFi? !

Stirling doesn't even have a plan for his tablet yet. He just logs in to our home wifi. My Android phone has a one gig plan, but that only gets used when there is no wifi available.

+1! It is not about the place or the food, it is about spending time with family. Most places will let you just split a meal or just let you order an appetizer. I have met a co worker for breakfast and just had iced tea since I had already had breakfast. Make it work for you and relax and enjoy yourself. So wonderful that she wants to go places with you.

Yep. We use Verizon for our home wifi service as we're out in the boonies. The alternatives we've tried didn't work.

We get 10 GB of shared everything, which means movies and streaming are off limits.

I feel like I have a food hangover today. Tired & sluggish at work. Feels like I could go home & sleep the rest of the day away..Ate all the wrong foods over the weekend with not much for exercise. Trying to convince myself mind over matter this morning.

I know. A salad is out of the question. Can't eat raw roughage. Even the slaw may be out of the question. Depends on how I feel. Right now I have a very upset stomach. Woke up with it and it won't go away. When I woke up earlier in the wee hours of the morning, I made a couple of pieces of French Toast. Couldn't even finish it. It's that bread thing again.

Right now I have a bigger problem. I have to go to Winthrop tomorrow. For the past year I have had a growth on my wrist. All of a sudden it is growing at a much faster rate than it has all year. And there is a lot of pain with it. So I have to have Winthrop know and take a look at it. More surgery in the future. Geesh. It never ends. I am sick of getting old. It is not fun.

I set up my trail camera again this afternoon. It's too muggy to do much of anything.

First coat of paint on the deck today. Finishing up tomorrow. Then a day of rest for the paint before we move the furniture back. Sure looks nicer than before.

Beagle and I are in the basement. Wind and rain got wicked, and there are tornado watches all around us. Going to venture back upstairs and have a look.

Great. The watch is now a warning for our county. I have a pocketful of flashlights and the weather radio.

Good thing...I don't think I want to see you and Beagle as stand-ins for The Wizard of Oz. Take care.
