Meh

For those who haven’t heard, I was admitted to the cardiac unit for overnight monitoring and testing after having what is tentatively being called a heart attack this morning while I was getting ready for work.

Aside from some flushing, I’m “fine” at the current time. As fine as one can be in the hospital.

Keep my Husbear in your thoughts, as he’s obviously a little stressed about the situation.

Until next time...

The end…. For now.

I have decided to park my blog.

Well, in as much as “park” includes still cross-posting my Instagram photos, and doing the “12 of 12” because I enjoy that.

It’s not like I’ve really blogged anything of real substance in a long, long while. Just not feeling wordy for a while, and my time seems more and more difficult to manage as of late.

I’ll still be around, and I might randomly post from time-to-time.

But for now, thank you for spending the time you’ve spent with me.

Until next time...

Hi-Fi Friday: March 10, 2017

My turn to pick the theme for the month. After two other… failed… suggestions, we agreed upon songs by Irish bands. Seems appropriate with it being March and all? But I think U2 should be left out. Since, well, U2.


Sinéad O’Controversy. But before she had that, er, title, she was well, just Sinéad. While her popularity has been somewhat lacking for the last two decades, she’s still putting out music. But I still enjoy listening to her 1990 album “I Do Not Want What I Haven’t Got”.

And from that album, I give you Sinéad O’Connor’s “The Emperor’s New Clothes”:

Working Me.

Just some videos of me doing one of the things I do, and probably a little more of the craziness that’s me. (I finally figured out how to grab these videos off of Facebook after they do a live thingy.) If you’re truly bored, these will kill a lot of time.

Tattooing my bestest buddy Patrick last April:

Tattooing our friend Kyle today:

Until next time...

Erections

The Husbear has grown tired of scraping frost and ice from the windshields in the winter time, so he wanted a carport. So we’re building a carport. Well, I’m building a carport. He’s assisting me. Not that we don’t have enough projects we’re constantly working on.

Lowe’s Delivery shorted me 10 pieces of roofing, which I finally received today. So barring any rain this coming weekend, I’ll get those last pieces installed.

There will be one other vehicle bay, but that won’t be built until sometime next year. We have to level the land for it first, but that won’t be until next year. But at least for now the Jeep and the Prius have a place to sleep.

Until next time...
