Saturday - Hot and humid. Did some yard
chores before it got too ugly.
I guess the brothers figured out that I was getting pretty angry, and sent
me some info. I'll let the sale go forward for now I guess. Still
Friday - My friends are off
to SF for the long weekend, wedding planning with the daughter. I'm
watching their place until Tuesday.
Got a note from my brother that the house in Martinez is going on sale soon,
for a lot less than I expected, and with essentially NO fluffing of
the house. No paint, no new carpet, no yard repairs in the back, etc.
When I asked for specifics he actually got snippy with me.
I am about an inch from canceling my agreement to sell. They can
f**king take me to court.
Thursday 31 August
84F in my office. The internet went out around noon, so I just knocked
off and did some reading on 'Swift'. I want to download and install a
certain 'Framework', but it's in Swift and I kind of want to see what's in
it before including it in my own app.
There was also a notice in the mail from SCE stating that there is a power
outage scheduled for Labor Day morning, 7am to 1pm. Nice.
Wednesday 30 August
Wednesday - I was looking at real estate,
found a nice rural home in Idaho. Out of my financial range,
really. I don't really want a big multistory home....
Monday - Trying to be productive...
Sunday - I mostly took the day off, feeling
pretty tired. Letting the hands rest.
My friends went off to the Taeko drum festival. I guess it was pretty hot,
and they were diverted onto strange side streets and the garment district
(ugh), but overall they had a good time.
I don't think I mentioned it, but S was involved in a neighborhood lock-down
in her office, stuck there for hours while officers searched for an armed
robber. She called me, and I couldn't find *anything* on so-called
local media - radio and TV are run out of LA now I guess. I found a
live-stream purporting to be the sheriff's, but there was, again, only stuff
from the valley and downtown.
Late in the evening, 9-ish, they let everyone leave.
