I donít carve anything - just build wood boxes, furniture, hiking sticks, and turn stuff on a lathe.

You do beautiful work on the things you make but for some reason I thought you were going to try carving. If not you then there was someone else that had mentioned that. Thanks Ronstar.

We saw a play last night called Communicating Doors, which was very entertaining. Today we went to The Souper Bowl, a contest where the ticket buyers walk around downtown Sausalito and and taste clam chowder at 12 of the restaurants, then vote on the best one. We had nice weather and pretty views. Some restaurants had other kinds of soup like lobster bisque or clam chowder so it was a good selection, plus the walking from one restaurant to another helped burn off some of the calories.

Today I decided to check out upcoming rock and country music concerts - have not been to one in years and I want to start back up again. For the summer concerts that interested me, could not figure out on main box office website if ticket sales had not started or if already sold out. Only thing available was a megaticket for five concerts - sale began a day ago at 10 am and few seats were left. Some oddball websites seemed to have a limited number of tickets for the individual concerts but much more expensive. So I grabbed a megaticket and it was not cheap. This was more complicated than I expected. Hard to believe you have to buy a concert ticket five months or more in advance.

Helped my daughter cut up, and split about 1/2 a truckload of firewood, that was too big for her woodstove (0 degree windchill), then went to a really good pizza buffet, that has good salad, and meal items. Trying to warm up around the fire tonight.

Called DishTV to cancel our service after completing our two year contract. I lost count of the number of times I said, "Please cancel our service" before the CS rep finally stopped asking questions, offering a better deal, or running down the competition and agreed to do what I asked. Sigh...

Swimming at the therapy pool. 92 degrees, too hot. I transferred to the family pool 82 degrees and much better. YMCA is awesome. I was the only one in the family pool. Heading out to dinner.

Love this retirement gig, I didn't do nuthin' all day. DW took the car to the car wash just in time for the forecast rain/sleet/snow tonight, tomorrow and tomorrow night and the Deep Freeze to follow. When I pointed that out I was informed that her car would be a Garage Queen until the snow melted. In the meantime we'll use the 4WD pickup truck.

I am now so informed.

It's all still better than having to go to work.

Gym day. Picked up a prescription. Got home before the snow became a problem. We might, I say might, get a half inch of snow, and yet the TV news at the gym managed to yap about it for 15 minutes. Must be a slow news day.

"Ohhhh, look! A snowflake! Mike, get a shot of that before it melts!"

"It's not a snowflake. It's a clump of cat hair".

"Well, make it out of focus so they can't tell."

Played Pickleball for the first time in 75 days, as was recovering from a hernia repair.
Boy, did I miss playing.
Being able to play at 10am on a weekday is one of my defining acknowledgements of being retired.

I need to go see that film, Iíve heard nothing but good things.

We went to see Jake Shimabukuro last year, and his closing song was Bohemian Rhapsody. He urged the audience to sing along, which gleefully complied.

I had a breast biopsy because the mammogram found something had changed. Sitting here with a small ice gel pack and I have to wear the bra overnight.
