Saturday 1: For a change, a nice easy day, catching up with the little stuff. Sunday 2: I picked up the work at the Port of Everett again, with the team who were selling parking tickets. This time, I was on the lead position, bringing traffic in and directing it to left and right, as well as clicking the counter. For the record, I reckon we proc…

Wednesday 1: Despite the fact that none of the complex tests of Julie's brain have shown anything abnormal, except perhaps one, she continues to have the strangest hallucinations I have ever heard. One notable one from today was that she had seen elephants walking on the ceiling! The exception test was a simple cognitive test done today (and I must…

Monday 1: The bedrooms got painted, with a heavy dose of roller this morning. Ah, the best laid plans.... While out for work stuff, I went shopping at Goodwill in South Seattle, and came home with a huge L-shaped desk, which has to go against the wall. Fortunately, Don was still around to help me to get it inside. Tuesday 2: The three …

Friday 1: I had a great session with Dennis and our trainer Annette, out the back of the gym area. Both of us needed to do some test lifting. His was a series of activities and mine was a simple 60 lbs off the floor onto an imaginary workbench.

Tuesday 1: For us it's Crappy New Year. We are both "damaged goods", but at least we're both home, Julie is in a LOT of pain. For me, it only hurts when I cough, although now the sutures on my stomach are starting to itch. After doing up to 15 minutes of walking 4 times a day at the rehab facility, I have managed just 2 trips of 5 minutes here, …

Wednesday: I took Julie to the VA Hospital today for a consultation with an Ear Nose and Throat specialist. This man is by far the best doctor we have seen since I moved here, and therefore by far the best specialist. His enthusiasm came across as exceptional caring and empathy. The end result is that right after we get back from our mini road tri…

I finally managed to get a decent picture of one of our hummingbird visitors, These little guys are only about 3 inches long, with VERY thin beaks that can get down into the slots in the base of the feeder, which other birds can't do. Ah, the dumb things we do sometimes. I was Dead Ending some cables this week, which involves stripping a len…

October 2018

With hummingbirds around, we bought a feeder and filled it with the correct mix of just sugar and water. Julie has seen them a few times, but they don't stay yet. Yay! I finally caught up with one.

September 2018

As you know, I missed the excitement of CenturyLink Field and returned to work there recently. One of my ways of enhancing the guest experience is to offer to take a picture of the party as they arrive, or sometimes, once the game has started. In this case, the party included Dave and his daughter, son and daughter-in-law. From time to time, I woul…
