Walter Hates Technology

 Thank you for stopping by:

My subscriber list for email notifications of my posts

is no longer working.

We're sad 

So far the new site has been unable to transfer all you

wonderful followers over, though they tell me they will 

figure it out?

SO please look over to your right in the upper corner,

and sign up there for the new site until they figure it out.

I would really appreciate it.

Wedding updates and Walter stories 

are in the near future as are some new ideas from me.

If you don't know what I'm talking about,

just leave me a comment or pop an email to me.

Two Months Flew By

Two months have gone by since my last post and I
honestly cannot think of what news to share.

It's hot in Vegas- we broke a record of 118.

Monsoon rains came, but not nearly enough, or often enough.

There was a shooting, early evening just before the fourth, 
5 houses down from me out in the street.
Four people shot, one died. I heard the shots and thought "Was that gunfire?" then
chastised myself- only fireworks I'll bet. The sirens a few minutes later 
meant I was right the first time. 
The video is on my IG account.

 We learned Walter is terrified of storms, his screaming
reminded me of those movies with wailing women hired for wakes.
It was awful, especially as he wanted to be on top of my head and shoulders,
 and I have many scratches and bruises, even with a thundershirt,
 to prove it .

Walter has also graduated to sleeping in my bed-
some of the time-
He does tend to roam, which of course has added to my 
long list of reasons that
I don't sleep.

Wedding is coming up fast, if the Delta variant and Lamda variant
don't wreak havoc. NV now going through another uptick.

Diagnosed with another medical issue. Yep 
Was attending a class last week to learn about it, and nearly
told an old geezer where to go, or suggest he have sex with himself,
 when he started ranting at me about the glory of #45 
and bitching about vaccines and being forced to wear a mask. 

I basically said I no longer suffer fools, and left the area.
Dumb shit

My house needs a good cleaning, the yard needs help, a lot of help,
but it just doesn't seem to be getting done.

I have a smoke alarm that has been beeping for weeks
 but I cannot get high enough to get the wee little door open to change the battery.

I have a door that takes me 10 minutes to lock  (for the past 2 years).
Ben will be here end of the month- he told me to make a list-
 there are 16 things on it
 thank heaven!

The days creep along and also speed by, if that makes any sense at all.

Perhaps it does to those of you who have also been quite isolated.
I've got another birthday coming up fast 
and I'm grateful to have one, though I haven't celebrated in years.
I'm within spitting distance of 70.
How can that be?

I purged another full car load and promptly donated,
no garage sales in my future. Partly too tired and 
partly the dumb asses that come and make me crazy.
More empty drawers and closets though, so hooray!

Now streaming Acorn and doing a lot of Netflix
Currently watching  Delicious- fluff but fun.
Almost through Marcella, loving it.
Anyone else watching?

Sorry it's a lumpy, grumpy post
but that is kinda where I am.

Is it age, circumstance, or weariness of illness...
Perhaps a little of each?
Never you mind
I'm still here,
and grateful for it all.
