Old MRE Day

Having a brother in law in the Army brings one certain random items laying about, such as an old uniform, worn combat boots, etc. Some time ago Tony gave me a random MRE he had laying about in the way. Actually, the more I think on it, I think he may have sent it home […]

Jeepers Peeper, Part 6 – Going Out

Thursday, February 9 The cat got so agitated last night that I got agitated, geared up and went outside in the dark. I didn’t find anything, thankfully. I half expect to find a neighborhood cat out there. Last time someone was pecking on my window a year ago I snuck outside and around the side […]

Jeepers Peeper, Part 5 – How Far Will it Spray?

Wednesday, Feb 8 I left work late today, then headed up to the neighbor’s. The hollering was not him last night, but he suggested who it might be. The elderly man – in his 90’s – across the street has an insane daughter, who i guess is in her late 60’s. She is so crude […]

Jeepers Peeper, Part 4 – Screams at Dusk

Tuesday, Feb 7 After work yesterday I changed and went out to work on the fence a bit. My neighbor, Gus, must have seen me out there with my tool belt, hammer and cordless drill and thought, wow, that looks manly. I think I’ll out-do him. So he was out in his workshop doing something […]

Since taking out the garage wall with the F250, there are some minor electrical issues I haven’t exactly ironed out. e.g., the garage light turns […]

Jeepers Peeper, Part 2 – The Front Window

Catching up on the peeper log: Wednesday, Feb 1 I’ve been told that I am oblivious to my surroundings, which probably has more to do with my vision than my awareness. But other times I am acutely aware of what should and shouldn’t be. People who aren’t just a little bit cautious are the ones […]

Trying Out Decaff Beans

Addict’s Log 2/7/12 745 grind decaff beans in shame, hope cat doesn’t think less of me. 759 enter work with container held low. Will anyone notice? 820 breakroom should be cleared of the first waves, enter and brew. 828 pour first cup, taste. Disappointment. Better than normal decaff, but can’t compare to regular French Roast. […]

Jeepers Peeper

Two years ago I got a phone call from my elderly neighbor to tell me she’d seen a peeping tom looking into her windows. I told her I hadn’t seen him, but to call if they saw him again. “I’ll come running out screaming like an idiot. Maybe that’ll help.” Later I thought to myself, […]
