I am waiting.... I'm pretty obsessive about waiting, and I just hate to do it. Still, I can out-wait anybody. I can wait for hours, days, years or lifetimes. I am waiting for a friend to call. He is coming over to pick up a cord of wood, an old stove, and a sink. I asked him in May if he would come by and pick this stuff up during the month of June cause I needed the room for other stuff. Two days ago I sent an email and reminded him that June is almost over. He is suppose to come over tonight.

People baffle me. I am giving him around 1000 dollars worth of stuff. You would think he would come and get it before I gave it away to someone else. I hope I won't be waiting much longer......

I think I am suffering from bloggers block. No, I think I am suffering from, "I don't want to do anything I don't want to do." Unfortunately, I have a lot of things that need to be done, and that mindset is very debilitating.

For example, I have been procrastinating soldering the hot and cold water piping for my new washing machine location. Last week I did all the brand new fittings, and when it came time to connect the new piping to the old I found other things to grab my attention.

The problem is that the piping in my house is very old and corroded. In order to get a good solder joint you have to file and sand the old pipe to get it smooth without a single blemish. Otherwise the solder won't hold, and there is water everywhere.

Today, by the grace of something outside of myself, I managed to cut the old pipes, file, sand and solder them together. Out of 32 solder joints I only had one bad one. It just happened to be the connection to the old piping. So the soldering is done, the water is back on. It took more energy avoiding the job than actually doing it. You would think this old dog would learn......

Tango at 6 months.

It has been a long painful computer recovery, but I can now turn my computer off and back on without viewing that beautiful blue screen.

Scout, for your viewing, a butt shot with a little bit of skin. Grey shorts don't photograph very well so you will have to use your imagination to fill in the blanks.

I missed you guys. It is going to take a while to get caught up on your lives, but I am looking forward to it.
