With the weather so hot and miserable, I decided to just lay low down here in my "Man Cave Dungeon" which is located back in a quiet, cool corner of my basement.
I started off playing with Blogspot to "reach out and touch the world". I managed (with the help of two lovely Southern ladies... Carol and Jenny)... to bungle my way into communicating with others on this "new fangled site".
My usual weekday wake up time of 5:30 A.M was somehow overlooked this weekend.... I actually slept in till about 10:00. After coffee, and reading the paper.... I slunk back down to the dungeon to keep my dogs company, and played with the computer.
Saturday afternoon, I was forced to put on a coat and tie...and fancy damned shoes that hurt my feet... and attend a wedding and the boring reception that followed. I did however, did get my picture taken with "THE VARMIT" (my daughter) ....
I was able to escape by muttering to the "better half", that if I left right then, I just might be able to go home to get the dogs, and make it down to the cabin "before dark". With a gleam in her eyes, she responded with a sweet knowing smile and uttered, " You have a good time!"...which really meant ..."Good riddance!"
Of couse, she knew that I wasn't going to the farm due to the hot weather. But, she was having a good time, and wasn't going to make me suffer through it any longer.
On Sunday evening, I ventured out and cleaned the pump filters on our fish pond.
That was about all of the excitement that I could generate this weekend!
