Everly! VHS! UPS! Rat! Azalea! 9.21.21

Tim A. Cummins @ 10:15 pm  

A friend of mine got a skull at Good Will. I sent her this diagram since I think it’s from a bob cat.


Love this.

Went to the UPS store this morning to drop off the charger for my old Mac to send it back to Amazon for a refund. I didn’t charge it. Jesse had one that would, so that was good news.

I’m in a conversation with a dear friend of mine about vaccinations. I went at the discussion in a different manner than he normally hears it. Still not sure if he gets the point.

I don’t often get this. In the last couple of weeks I’ve done it three times.



Work week starts early.

Another rainy, cloudy day. Started breaking up in the late afternoon.

Cada dia.

Gassed up the Mercury and checked levels. Turned out I needed to add some oil which I did. Then filled up my quart bottle with by big oil jug.

I love the oil/water diffraction patterns.

I got Disney+ on the Roku. Everly was delighted to be able to watch Frozen and Frozen II again.

We are working on finding a back up plan if something goes wrong with the car or with my health in the foreseeable future. First part was to get Penelope into the bus rider mentality. I had a detailed discussion with the rest of the family about it.

I picked up Penelope this afternoon and had a talk with her teacher Ms. Lehner about all the ins and outs of going on the bus. Where she will get it, who she’ll go with, everything I could think of to help Penelope be absolutely confident about doing it.

I saw this little mushroom poke it’s head through all the sealer I put on the tree.

I got all the garbage cans and the old dryer to the street this morning. Everything was heavy.

Rained just over 1″ yesterday.

Kathy heard a rodent scurrying around yesterday. I cleaned and baited three traps, two downstairs and one upstairs to catch them. Just a matter of time now. I always get them.

Took some hide a keys to Ash and Miles and one of the kids at the mission who now has a baby and a truck.

Swept. I need to vacuum as well. Haven’t had the chance yet.

My shoes got muddy hauling stuff to the curb. Scrubbed them.

Picked up the digitized version of my dad Al Cummins preaching his mission sermon. I’ll get that on the web tomorrow. It’s from 1993.

My last day to pick up Penelope as a car rider. Overall, that process took way more time than I anticipated. You either got there thirty minutes early to pick her up on time or had to wait for about fifty cars to get her later. I was in that line for at least two hours a week. I think it’ll be a lot better for Penelope to ride the bus. She’ll be home faster than I could get her if she rode the car, plus it’ll be fun!

I took P for a happy meal. We got this one. Cap’n JAQ is what I call my buddy Anthony Jacquin. A riff on Pirates of the Caribbean.

I love her so much.

Helped the kids at the mission with their homework.


Mas Harry.

Picked up the mail and watered my ficus.
