The Longest Week

Yeah, it was a long week for the Old Warhorse.

Monday, I was still under the weather so I didn't work that day. Kinda wished I didn't work Tuesday, however. That was the storm that brought forth every roof leak that our school district had. I was on the roofs myself, armed with a tube of Henry's roof goop. O joy, O thrill.

I guess I said something at one time or another about the 'Strip Mining' that occurred inside my work van while I was off. My heavy duty rain jacket was one of the items mined from it. I was issued a replacement that was just short of criminal. It stunk like a cheap child's pool toy and it was so thin, a sneeze was all that was required to rip it. At least it kept the Henry's off my clothes. Didn't keep me dry, however.

Thursday brought some heat, around 80 degrees or so. Today (Saturday) was nice.

Doesn't do a thing for my sinus infection or chest cold, though. I hate rain because that means I will be on a roof somewhere, trying in vain to stop it from leaking.

Sorry for the rant but I needed to vent.

Sunday's News

I want to start out by offering my friend 'The Silver Coyote' our condolences. I seems Granny Fox, as she was known to us by, had a bad spill at home recently and I'm not privy to the circumstances but it may have contributed to her demise at the tender age of 86. SC, we share your sorrow and we hope that you're able to move on when the time is right.

On to less somber things -

I'm still working to clean up the look of my website. I'm using a template that was put together by Andreas Viklund to give my site a cleaner interface. Look for a change in the next few weeks.

I'm still chugging away at chapter 34 of "A Loss Of Rights" which I hope will be posted in a few days. Chapter 33 might have been the showdown but it's not over. Not by a long shot There have been a few hints as to what will be revealed in the next chapter(s) so stay tuned.

Take care and say a prayer for SC and his family, would you?

"A Loss Of Rights"

Two quick notes-

Chapter 33  of "A Loss Of Rights has been posted. Yeah, the showdown. Enjoy.

As a side note, a friend's I.P. address has been associated with spamming by Spamhaus. I hope that gets straightened out for him soon.

Cheers,

Kellan, the old warhorse

Tuesday's Things Via Thingamablog

So, here I sit, trying to recover from this cold-pseudo flu going round. Since I had a little time on my hands, I updated my galleries.

Ardenwood Ren Faire is HERE  and our most recent camping trip is THERE 

I read my friend SC's blog to see he's had a little high point in his life (his daughter's 16th birthday) and some lows, too. He laments his pay cut and I can sympathize with that because I took a cut in pay to keep my job, too. His mate's mother took a spill, which is not good at the age of 86. I'll keep Granny Fox in my thoughts and prayers, SC.

Anyway, progress on chapter 33 of "A Loss Of Rights" is going nicely. My muse decided to help out for a change. Yay me!

Take care all,

Kellan, the old warhorse

A few days of silence

If you don't hear from me for the next few days, these are the reasons.

Getting my eyes examined today which means they will dilate them. That means I will be in a world of hurt for at least two days.

We are also going camping(?!?) this weekend. Yeah, I'll still be one of the walking wounded while we try to enjoy ourselves and have a good time with some friends.

Hope to be back in action soon.
