@ttyymmnn I hope over the time I could remember the steps taken before the camera is ready to shoot. One thing that I'm really worried about is that I forget to take off the dark slide before shooting.
@ttyymmnn It likely played its part. What I'll call 'The McGowan Effect' almost certainly swung the needle for Labor out here in the west. Mark McGowan is our state Premier - the one who shut our interstate and international border for two years while almost everyone got vaccinated, to minimise the impact of the pandemic. That kept us living a normal life, but also kept the national economy ticking along, as it kept the mines open.
The rest of the weekend is going to be attempting to goat-proof a paddock. I went into the rural supplies store this morning and bought the necessary to run 4 hot wires all round, and the guy told me I was wasting my time and should just go straight to installing guard towers with machine guns and searchlights 🥴
That guy obviously knows goats. They'd put Houdini to shame! Good luck! Also, good to hear that Mrs. Distraxi is doing well.
@ttyymmnn It's Saturday morning here and so far I've had doggo out for his morning constitutional and fetched myself a coffee and banana bread. Once I finish my coffee I have to get stuck into some ironing and I'm going to get a haircut this afternoon. Other than that, I'll hopefully be drinking some beer/wine/cocktails, eating good food and chilling out in front of the TV. It's supposed to be stormy tomorrow, so other than a foray to get coffee, I doubt I'll be over the door.
They were up against some of the best bands in the state. 20 entrants, 12 advanced to finals after prelims. They placed 13 in prelims, .5 points behind no 12. So that’s actually pretty good, since their show is still not complete. They know the music but not the still for the last part. So they stood and played at the end when they should have been marching. Otherwise, they would have advanced. In a way, I’m glad they didn’t advance because the truck was loaded by 7 and we were home by 8:30. Otherwise we would have been there until midnight.
then working concessions in the afternoon. Not a fan of slinging hot dogs and Cokes, but it needs to be done.
I remember those days! Concessions were a big fund raiser for our band. We also sold chocolate bars. I'm not sure what made us more money, but my senior year, we bought all new uniforms and the entire band went to Daytona Beach to march in some parade. The band took a big trip like that every four years.
@ttyymmnn Ronaldo makes his redebut (probably not a word) with Man U tomorrow so I may watch that if I wake up early enough. I need to clean everything, the house, cars, storage area, my life… Bills on Sunday!
@roadkilled Ugh, I remember when they changed it to the T for Tulleys. About the same time as the Kingdome got demo'd IIRC. That combo changed the SoDo skyline a bit. I'm glad the restore the R campaign brought it back in its new glory!
@ttyymmnn my mom and uncle inherited my grandmothers house and had a new roof and some other work done winter 2019/20. My uncles been living there for like the past 4 years. We get ther the first time since falll 2019 and there’s still drywall a d sawdust everywhere but the living room, kitchen his bedroom clean. Everything else still covered in tarps because the other walls still not painted. The property looks like shit. Your fit enough to go golfing 4 times a week and see a personal trainer but can’t pick up sticks and shit? Trying to get through the weekend without loosing it.
@ttyymmnn Happy Birthday to Mrs. ttyymmnn and Happy Anniversary to you both!
My weekend is a quiet one, which is nice. I ran some errands this morning, then we had lunch with my partner's parents. Since then, I've been drinking a beer and reading Oppo. Got to go take doggo for a walk now, then chill for the rest of the evening. Tomorrow will be even more chill.
@ttyymmnn starting up my rototilling business again. Last year the rototiller paid for itself. It's half a legit money maker, and half a community service because I charge very little. Also hoping to finish the final assembly of the chair I made for Mrs. BaconSandwich.
