Mowed the lawn for first time in 2021 this afternoon. About 7 months until mowing ends. Might have been able to wait a week or so, but 70 degrees and dry for few days made it nice to get done today.

I was supposed to go to Denver today. It snowed about 8 inches last night and was still snowing this morning so I cancelled. DS had a minor fender bender so I am headed up to go with him to a you-pull-it wrecking yard to find a mirror and maybe a fender. I hope it is not too muddy. Instead of traveling I finished up my taxes and got them on their way. Glad to get that checked of the list.

Was ready to go hiking for the day and discovered that the faucet in the kitchen had some seepage. So, I had to change out a faucet and took most of the morning. I then packed a lunch and headed for a hike the rest of the day. Got permission from a long time friend to turkey hunt again this spring. This evening went a check on the area I been turkey hunting for about 25 years.

Started control surface installation on the R/C airplane. The stiff wire that connects the servo to the various control surfaces is far too flimsy/flexible to be effective so I'll have to replace that. Fortunately I have some on hand, and the "Z bender" tool to do it. Or I may go with a pull-pull cable system which is far more accurate but not really needed for a sailplane that doesn't go very fast.

Went for an early morning hike. Then did some recently-retired stuff. Completed consolidation of investment accounts and re-balanced. Contacted a realtor to get some land sold. We bought it in 2006 but never built on it. I think we'll come out all right on it even after taking paid taxes into account. Started another novel by Jamie Lee Burke.

Yesterday I walked in a direction I haven't walked since last March and discovered the closed Toys R Us turned into a Target and Models closed. Good tradeoff IMO. I went to Best Buy to get a VGA cable and booted up my first quad core computer. Webpages load just as slowly as before and backups over USB 3.0 never even reached 90 MB/s, but the SSD makes it boot fast.

I visited my aunt and uncle, who live in an independent living cottage at a local CCRC. The last time we saw each other in person was at Christmas, 2019.

All three of us are now fully vaccinated, so we decided to meet for lunch at their place. We hugged, and talked, and ate - with no masks on - it was just like normal life!!

I feel happier than I have for a very long time. It was very difficult to be separated from them for so long.

Seems strange to me. Maybe it's a Canadian thing.

According to the CDC

Quote:
Persons age 16 years and older should receive 2 doses at least 21 days apart.
Second doses should be administered as close to the recommended interval as possible.
If it is not feasible to adhere to the recommended interval, you may schedule the second dose up to 6 weeks (42 days) after the first dose; there is limited efficacy data beyond this window, but a dose after this time does not need to be repeated.
DW and I got our first one on 02/28. She got her second one today. I was scheduled to get mine today to, but had to put it off so I'm now scheduled for April 7.

Yes, apparently it is a Canadian thing, to get more first doses in more arms.

Finalized our Alaska trip plans, reserving float plane and Katmai NP lodging. Then went for a windy hike, tracking down some pelicans and sandhill cranes.

It hit a whopping 15C today so spent a couple hours in the backyard practicing archery with my recurve bow.

First time since last fall. No targets were overly hurt in the process....

Went to the ranch and spent till early afternoon. Then went and did a little yard work for an elderly lady who I help out. I spend about about an 1 to 2 hours a week in spring, summer and early fall do some her yard work. She is a very wealthy lady who lost her husband a couple of years ago.

She has 5 kids that live close and they do a lot for her but likes to have someone come in to help her do some of the tasks.

Dash man, sorry to hear of your discomfort. I have been experiencing a lower back pain now and again. I sure hope it isn't a hip or an issue with my back. I have been very lucky in life so far with good health. My body has done a lot of manual labor in it's life time thou so I might be feeling the abuse I have done.

minimum 3-weeks for Pfizer, 4-weeks for Moderna. most places here giving the shots will schedule your second shot before you leave.

we've been dealing with the death of my BIL in Calif. on March 5th, getting him back home to Illinois, the funeral and the aftermath. BIL told nobody anything about anyrhing. we discovered, quite by chance, his trust document (wife and i are succesor trustees) but it's been a daily treasure hunt for his assets. this will be my fourth time either as succesor trustee or doing the legwork for the S.T. at some point we'll be heading to Calif. to clean out his condo and close some loose ends. he was a horder. gonma be fun.
