With my bills doubling since I moved into this house, I feel the thrill of Payday once again.
It was feckin' 40 degrees this morning with light rain floating down. I can't remember a morning this warm. The downside is that much of the snow is melting in the backyard and Freddy will be quite muddy with I get back home.
Today went well, except that I had to cast 1 1/2 hours after school. It was fine and the casting went great.
I whizzed around town on my dirtbike to run errands in this hot tropical weather, and was most grateful for the beautiful day. Freddy had to spend a couple hours to dry out when I got home at 5:00 PM. Cooked up some porkchops w aspharagus/leek/requeson (mexican cheese) concoction and added way too much chicken bullion, which ruined every thing. Logan and I choked it down while wrapping the salty shit in flour tortillas and eat till we became adverse to futher gastrnomic endeavors.
Spent the rest of the evening listening to classical music over my new-vintage wooden radio from Grundig which occupies much of our tiny kitchen table. When I got bored with that, I watched the "Andy Griffith Show" on TV land for an hour or so.
I love these old sitcoms. Beverly Hillbillies, has the best acting and funny writing. The Brady Bunch disturbs me since I know what most people know about the cast. Now that I am older and much more understanding about kids, families, and schools; Leave it to Beaver is my favorite. The writing is insightful, if not incredible! The writers have child and teenage logic down to a T. Things weren't that different with childrens psyche's in the early 60's then they are now.
