Voting Day!

I got up a little earlier than normal on Tuesday. I raced through the morning rituals and then headed out to my polling station. I got there about 7:05 a.m. and there were only 12 people in front of me. I was out by 7:20 and headed for work.

When I got there, I found that Courtney (back in again for the morning, at least) had brought in a bag filled with small, candy machine-sized bags of Lay’s potato chips. She had read in my Blog I don’t buy big bags (because they go stale) and said she and Mike had these left over. Thanks!!!

Michelle, my ex-cubical buddy, had organized another lunch get-together. This time I went. I drove Vicky and, all together, there were eight of us (including Michelle). It was back at Bahama Breeze, again. This time I was not fooled by the so-called Cuban sandwich. I ordered one of their lunch combos. This one was three small Pork Carnitas Street Tacos (Slow cooked pork, cilantro-crema, black bean-corn salsa), served on flour tortillas. They were pretty good! I chose a Caesar salad as my combo (their three soups didn’t sound that interesting) that was excellent.

We drove back in a light rain that continued all afternoon. Needless to say, both the morning and afternoon walks were inside.

I took a moment at work to reactivate my new Bank of America credit card. This is the second credit card (the other was my old Capital One card) that, without me asking, has been replaced. Both of the letters with the new cards mentioned the Home Depot security breach. Either that was more serious than any of the other hacks recently, or the credit card companies are no longer taking any chances of getting stuck with huge bills. Both of them have got it down pat, though. You activate the card they send and bingo! Your old card is no longer visible and your balance (if any) is automatically transferred to the new card. Take that, Russian hacker geeks!!!

I drove home in the same light rain. I got the trash can inside and shut the garage door. I had some woodworking to do, but decided against it tonight. I don’t want the truck outside in the rain and it was already dripping wet. So any sawdust I might make would stick to it! Not an attractive look!

I went out back and checked the rain gauge. There was less than 1/4 inch of rain in it. Then I walked over and got the SIMs card from the Game Trail Camera.

I took it inside and tried to wipe wet leaves off the bottom of my shoes. I ended up giving up and carrying them into the bedroom and onto the shoe rack.

Then I checked the SIM card. Not good! 281 videos mostly of falling leaves, rain and stupid squirrels. It even picked up large trucks moving in the Coney Island parking lot!

I watched some taped DIY TV shows and then switched to the Red Wings Game. When I was hungry, I warmed up more of the kielbasa and sauerkraut. I realized I hadn’t posted a photo when I made it, so I took one before I ate.

When the hockey game ended (we lost, 3-1 to the Senators... THE SENATORS???) I was disgusted and went to bed angry.


  1. Re: Hockey Game - Well, it was voting day.

  2. You're right. maybe I was disgusted for more than just the damn hockey game!
