This week’s infrequent updates are dedicated to my Aunt Mary and my Uncle Terry. We’re talking about good people here folks, so don’t mess with ‘em.

Had an amazing weekend full of basically nothing. I took things easy and tuned up the pad a bunch. Same old, same old. Unpack this, unpack that, throw out this/that. It’s a “sifting” process of sorts, trying (and failing) to decide what I need to survive. I can’t shake a lot of this stuff. Think of it like this: I need these things to live, and damned if I‘m gonna part with any of ‘em.

I got a new rig in at work. A screamin’ double gig processor, giant hard drive, slick Itunes transfer rate and four holes on the hood scoop that don’t make any sense. Thanks to CINCO for outfitting me so well. A good investment, made by smart thinkers. No sense buying seeds when you can buy the whole garden?

Saw Rod Snell on Friday night. He came up with his gal for a quick dinner and some chattin’. He’s a good guy.

Dad will be here next week. Portland: Watch out, that tool-hustlin’ Pollack is ready for action. As a payback for years of abuse and scorn, he’s sleeping on bare hardwood floors. I have set aside an old wash cloth to be used as his blanket. It’s payback time.

I wish Mom was coming out, but she is opting to stay back to guard the ranch. I’ll see her this fall, as I hope to make a trek back in late October.
