Went up on South Main Divide Road today to get a piece of furniture for my wife’s B-day. Visibility at times less than a mile due to dust and smoke from the many fires and windy dry weather. Hemet Ryan Field busy staging water dropping aircraft, so much so that planes on approach had to go around a few times before being able to land.

Stopped @ Panera for some soup and a sandwich. Ate it before entering the place when I tripped and fell on an unusually high curb out front. Not hurt bad because I rolled as I hit the sidewalk, but had to scrub a couple of road rash toes with a toothbrush.
Funny thing was that it was next door to the dentist office where my daughter is going to have her wisdom teeth pulled so I feel worse for her. :wink:
Glad that the hours at work are slower now, it’s likely to get much busier as Christmas season picks up.

Another one in the same area as the last one. Hope they catch the culprit.

A mosquito was biting me almost every night. Finally got it cornered in the bathroom. Saw it on the faucet and I thought it was an ant, but it went airborne and when I took a swipe at it went down somewhere. Hopefully I got that bloodsucker. :twisted:

Mosquito confirmed kill. :twisted:
Thought this was funny, seven (count ‘em; 7) people sighted at HV Mall. What with Hobby Lobby as an anchor store, that boat’s not going anywhere. :lol:

PeanutButter does that too, but it's quite different, since he's well over 100lbs (120? 130? more?), and taller than even Kirin.... (when he stands on his back legs he could easily put paws on top of the fridge, or higher)

And he has no idea how big he is....

:shock:

Time to start looking into Social Security and Medicare, turning 65 in eight months. Anyone who has been there have any tips? Already have health insurance through OPM retirement. Right now all the Open Season TV ads nauseate me. :?

Finally broke down and fired up the heating system when I woke up from a nap and the indoor temperature was 64 degrees F. :oops:

Saw a Buffalo (Bison) this evening on the way to Game Stop. I knew that there are some on the Soboba Indian Reservation but was surprised to learn that they were this close to town, just five minutes from here. 8)
