I spent yesterday listing my SO's comic book collection on ebay . Then I baked him a carrot cake . I'm also going to make his favorite seafood dish tomorrow . I also finished Grisham's new book "The Associate" which I immediately listed on Amazon . It was good but not great .

Got in 12 holes before the clouds caved in. Sitting here having a cold one and watching golf on tv. Probably go to the club tonight for dinner with friends. Life is pretty good.

I went to Ebay to see if I could find the comic book collection. There were quite a few of them, but then I got sidetracked by this other wonderful item!

Cleaned up my townhome. Met with the realtor to do the listing. I'm selling! Then spent the afternoon and evening writing notes to friends and family of my late father who died Jan. 12. It's been a very tiring day.

Mostly nothing, bid on ebay on a pair of Polk Audio RTA-12 speakers. Got outbid by about 25 bucks. My current el cheapo speakers in my work area are dying, no point re-foaming the cones, they are cheap. Will keep looking for something on Craiglist or Ebay. Played a game of scrabble with DW. On to the hot tub. 'night all.

Last night I watched "The Good German" with Cate Blanchett and George Clooney and Toby Maguire. B&W noir movie that I really enjoyed. Worth seeing just to see Maguire in this very non-super hero role. But double worth seeing to see Cate, one of my favorite actresses. She is bad as a woman needs to be bad in a noir movie. Poor George is trying to be a good boy, but he keeps getting disappointed (and clobbered) by the overall nastiness of life in 1945 Berlin. Great Movietone archival footage of the Potsdam Conference too.

Today is devoted to not doing a darn thing, except my usual cook, surf, read, listen to tunes. The sun is shining, again.
Yesterday was VD special dinner day - shrimp cocktail, Delmonico steaks and shrimp au gratin at home. I spent maybe $30 total on the food vs the $75 this meal would have cost at a restaurant .

Went to the grocery store, had a NASCAR cart (kept turning left).

Saw a hawk get lunch. At least two species of hawk think I run a buffet.

Used the Crockpot to make stock from leftover bones (and garlic and onion).

Sun is shining, savoring the disappearance of more of the snowpack.
Downloaded more pics to the digital photoframe. I now have a really cool slideshow going - a combo of personal pics, space objects, scenery, flowers, critters.
Read several past issues of SmartMoney (WSJ pub), Dec 08-Feb 09.
Stalled on what I will make for dinner...life is really tough here.

Wow, I'm impressed freebird.

Some days I am inspired to read the stack of magazines...sometimes I just give them away. SmartMoney is a freebie exchanged for low balance airline miles.
It was interesting reading 3 consecutive months in tandem, considering what the market and business was doing over that time span (Dec 08 - Feb 09).
BTW, dinner is solved - frozen homemade lasagna and making dough for homemade French bread in the breadmaker.
Now I can relax.

Had my monthly lunch with old roomie. Best meal of the month, as he is fairly well off and refuses to go downmarket with me. I had oysters sauteed in butter, cole slaw and a fumé blanc.

Now all I need is a honey to give me some low calorie dessert.

Moved the snow that I shoveled off the motorhome a day or so ago. Starting loading stuff in the MH. Not leaving for a week and a half, but today is supposed to be the warmest day (mid-twenties) in the foreseeable future.

Now on the couch on the 'net. Back is kinda squirrelly from the shoveling.
