Back In The 'Stan

Got back yesterday about 1545. Dropped off the wife's friend and her luggage, then headed here to unload the Jeep.

Finally got to the kennel about 1800 to pick up Pebbles, who ignored me for the first 20 minutes or so.

I'd forgotten my house keys, so when we got home I couldn't get in to the house! Had to fight the bees around the lavender bush to get at the faucet for the front garden hose so I could give the poor dog a drink, and then we waited for the wife to get home.

And waited.

And waited.

After about 20 minutes, I took the dog for another ride (she's excellent in the car) to kill some time, and when we got home, the wife was still gone.

Hmmmmm....maybe she went to get groceries, as we'd cleaned out the fridge before we left.

SOOOO.....back in the car for another ride. Stopped and got gas, and rode around for about another 30 minutes.

Got home and saw the wife's car in the driveway, so I parked and we went in.

Turns out the fire alarm at the wife's school had gone casters up and was wailing away, so they called her in to reset it. It wouldn't reset, and started throwing error codes she'd never seen, so she called the alarm company who diagnosed it as a bad sensor, and told her to turn it off.

She had to go back in this  morning to give the alarm company access to the buildings, and they replaced three different types of sensors, and now all is good.

I'm off to pick up our mail, and then over to my private P.O. Box where I do all my shipping and receiving from. I *know* I have a Heathkit SB-303 receiver waiting for me, along with a few parts for the Supra, and a HUGE box of mail and other junk.

Glad I don't have to be back to "work" until Monday, as the back yard needs some grooming!


  1. Glad you got home ok, even with the drama. :-)
    Don't forget tomorrow is the 15th anniversary of Night of Nights.
    And please give us a report on the new receiver if you get a chance.

    1. The receiver STILL hasn't arrived. Last tracking info from USPS was that it left the P.O. in Hawaii on June 16th!

      A MONTH to get to Kalifornistan from Hawaii??

  2. Oopsie... :-) Best laid plan and all that...

    1. Yeah, and she gave me the new key we had made about 10 minutes after we walked in the door!

      Guess I had too many other things on my little brain, and forgot to immediately put it on my key ring......

  3. No good deed goes unpunished, but at least you're home - AND have a new toy to play with. :)


Keep it civil, please....

Welcome To The Weekend!

 And we're off to the Larimer County Fair! Photo crew will be SLW and my son. TLG has been talking about it all week.... Have fun and be...
