Saturday - Sunny and warm. Back in Lancaster
for the weekend, then I need to get back to Saticoy on Sunday night or early
Monday morning. No Columbus Day holiday for the non-federal workers I guess.
I had to take Riley into the vet for his shots. While he was there I have
them trim a couple of overgrown claws and give him a vitamin shot. In and
out in five minutes: it was a quiet morning there.
Lunch with R and S. We tried to go to the "Blue Koi", but it has gone out of
business. We've been going there since it opened, under various managements.
Instead we went to the Mahli's in Palmdale, and I, for the first time in a
while, picked up the tab.
I owe, I owe, so off to work I go...
Speaking of which, my younger brother retired this week....
Friday - OTR. Hot in
Ventura and, when I got there around 9pm, in Lancaster. sigh. Heavy traffic
all the way home on the I-14.
All I can say is that I expected to be in the field a lot less for a part
time inspection job.
But why did it have to be during a heat wave? It was 101F on the job site,
according to the card thermometer, which is generally accurate.
In any case the money is certainly welcome.
Wednesday 7 October
Wednesday - OTR.
Tuesday - OTR.
Monday - OTR.
Sigh. A day doesn't go by without some 'excitement'. I keep thinking I'll
put in a four hour day, but it's happened once
in the last two weeks. And I'm not even counting office time.
Sunday - It was raining lightly in the morning
when I arose. They'd predicted it, but I admit I was dubious.
I need to do a bit of work on the app, and a bit of work on the inspection
job, but am still pretty tired.
One unfortunate side effect of being on my feet all day is that my training
for the hike has lapsed. I need to suck it up and get back into the routine,
tired or not. Next week, maybe...
I guess Russia is kicking us out of Syria? I guess Obama is as completely
incompetent at foreign affairs as he is at domestic. I saw a tweet
somewhere, to the effect that the last
time a Russian treated a Black American this badly Apollo Creed died...
I'll have to head down to Ventura tonight.
