  1. For what it’s worth, I was not bothered at all. My spelling is atrocious.

    Internet down

    No, still relying on LTE. My provider has had issues in the past.

    Internet down

    Is there an internet attack going on? From here about the only thing I can access is Square Wheels. All video is down, so is Facebook and most sites I have tried.
  4. You can tell my grandma taught me how to write.
  5. Pot is ok. It is not an antidepressant for me though. More anti stress. Or more accurately anti boredom. For example: when I had my darkroom running I would coat my own photo paper, and I had to wait for it to dry while stuck in room under a dim red light for an hour or more. Can’t see to read, can’t watch videos because of the light. You can listen to music, but you are still sitting in a chair, in the dark, twiddling your thumbs. A joint would make that time less tedious. I was quite a bit more fond of it I’m my 20s. Nowadays I’ll burn one once every few months or so if offered. Last time was about two weeks ago when my friend Clayton and I paddled a few laps around the pond fly fishing. Time before that was Labor Day while tending the grill. I don’t drink. Never had a problem with it, I just never got past the taste. Wine gives me a splitting headache before I finish one glass. I’ve tried to like it, just can’t do it. Beer is bitter. Avgas smells way better than liquor to me. I don’t want to drink that either.
  6. There is not. They are field reports. We are gloved up so touch screens don’t work, and pencils are cheaper than laptops.
  7. Fully admit my spelling is just sad.
  8. Boss can’t read my handwriting. I have excellent penmanship. He just can’t read cursive. The reports have to be handwritten because they come that way. I lost some respect for him today.
  9. Rural Walton county. Mailing address is Monroe.
  10. General art I would be good for about a 45 minute lecture. I could go on about photography for…a very long time. Fly fishing, days if not months.
  11. I’m ok with it. The bank is right next to my favorite lunch spot. I park at the bank, call in a to go order, deposit my check, and then pick up lunch.

    NYT Crossword

    I can’t get past the Wednesday puzzles.
  13. I am still paid by check. I go inside every Tuesday; that’s my day off. I don’t like the drive through because I have forgotten to return the tube shuttle thingy twice. And they charged me for it twice. Damn things are expensive.
  14. I learned how to cuss in Hindi and Gujarati just to wake them up.
  15. After more than 70 years of my family owning 5852 as a phone number I killed it today because I’m sick of relentless scam calls. Recently it has been 30+ a day. Now blissful silence. I had kept it out of sentimental reasons and because cell service is spotty out here. But that’s not worth paying a company to be harassed.
  16. No. Unless you are using a barbless hook. catch what you can eat, and then leave the rest for another day.

    Junk Drawer

    1 in the kitchen. It contains small hand tools mostly.
  18. My flag on a uniform, on a bag, monotone to highlight its color independence (unlike, say the Italian flag, you can color it anything you want it is still four stripes, seven stars), and scaled little to big.
  19. tl;dr: My county’s flag sucks, I want to change it. My counted adopted what looks like a diner’s placemat for a flag. Georgia has set precedent to be willing to change their flag, and I’m submitting a design the the county board. If we are going to have a flag it should at least look like a flag. In the world of design, flag design, is considered important enough to warrant its own word, vexillology. According to NAVA (the North American Vexillology Association) there are five rules for flag design. The Five Principles are: Keep It Simple. The flag should be so simple that a child can draw it from memory. Use Meaningful Symbolism. The flag's images, colors, or patterns should relate to what it symbolizes. Use 2 or 3 Basic Colors. Limit the number of colors on the flag to three which contrast well and come from the standard color set. No Lettering or Seals. Never use writing of any kind or an organization's seal. Be Distinctive or Be Related. Avoid duplicating other flags, but use similarities to show connections. The symbolism of my flag is as follows: red, white, and blue, Stars and Stripes, ‘cause, ‘Merica! Four stripes because Georgia was the fourth state to join the Great Experiment. Seven stars for the seven incorporated communities in Walton county. Seven points on the stars for the seven Waltonians who have served as Georgia governor.
  20. Mine went on last night. Went down to 43°. It got chilly inside the night before. The down comforter came out too.
  21. Started the first episode but didn’t have the time to finish it. I’m interested enough that I will.
