Mom! Anthony! 7.5.19

Tim A. Cummins @ 8:25 pm  

For the Pink Floyd fans out there.

Brain Training.


Admiring the geological specimens on my desk!

Had a fun chat with my buddy Anthony. He and Marcus Lewis were on their way to perform at a jazz festival.

I’ve been watching some videos of King Crimson, in particular when the band had Adrian Belew and Bill Buford. The bass player played this instrument called the Chapman.

Looks like our neighbors down the street shot off some firecrackers. It’s only been legal here in Georgia for the last couple of years.

Looking forward to picking up my Mom from the airport Saturday morning!

We put the finishing touches on her room this afternoon!

Sent out my section of the newsletter for July to our email list.

Soaked up some rays in my blue pool while I treated my arm to the cold water. Always feels better after that!

Happy 4th! Anthony! Family! Spiderman! Email!

Tim A. Cummins @ 10:30 pm  

Happy 4th of July!

I posted this today on Facebook. It’s important that we reach out!

Today was my 9th year anniversary with my best friend, Anthony Jacquin. What great times we’ve had together!



Gassed up my car. Price jumped up ten cents this week.

One of my fasciata bromeliads has started to bloom. It’s the first one in ten years or more!

I transported squirrels #76 and #77 today.

I had lunch with Kathy and Jesse today.

I liked this fireplace.


Teddy is one of my very favorite presidents.

Jesse and I went to see the new Spiderman movie tonight. We liked it!

Beautiful clouds.

Got the tag bill in the mail.

Added addresses from the last several teams to our data base.

Sent a letter to the Youth Directors that haven’t worked with us yet with the CONCERN part of the REACH model.

Admin duties now.

My arm has still been bothering me some today. Still can’t flex it well, but it’s getting a little better every day. I laid in my little blue kiddy pool this afternoon. The cold water makes it feel better.

Really cloudy this morning. Great for a bike ride!


Went to Red Robin for a veggie burger. It was free for my birthday!

Then to Stone Mountain to catch some rays and cool water.

Reminded me of Kenya.

Newsletters! Bill & Deborah! Bike! 7.2.19

Tim A. Cummins @ 10:45 pm  

I thought this cartoon was funny.



My podcast went over 125,000 downloads!

I released Verbal Surgery -674- “Breath of Life!”

Breath deep and feel good, NOW!

Uploaded to my server.

Put some air in my tire. It has a slow leak. I’ll get it fixed soon.

Folded and stuffed my newsletters. It was hard with my injured hand.

Got them in the mail!

Had a fun lunch with my friends Bill and Deborah Doverspike.
Got a new mattress for Jesse. He got the full, but really needed the queen.

Deposited checks. Amen!

Got the emissions tested in all three of my cars! Passed! It was hard to find a shop that would do the test for the Mercury that is from 1995.

Went for a 12.76 mile ride. I waited till nearly 7:30 pm to start. It was around 96 degrees today!

Beautiful clouds!

Canada! Grandgirls! Groceries! 7.1.19

Tim A. Cummins @ 10:21 pm  

Happy Canada Day! Canada is the world’s second largest country, and one of my new favorites!


End of the month mileage!

Went to Chamblee to pick up Ashley’s newsletter, get stamps and take the letters to be printed to FBC Doraville. Liked the stamps.

I dropped off the newsletter to the FBC Doraville box.

The grand girls and Ashley came over this afternoon. We played in the our little blue pool. Ashley and Kathy did the labels for the newsletters. THANKS!

I got the groceries.

Clouds were beautiful.

I even thought this random shot of the asphalt was cool looking.

Admin duties now.

My hands are working a lot better this evening when I’m typing. May have been because I spent quite a lot of time in that cold water today. The girl kept saying, “Cold, Pop Pop!” I’d just say, “Nice!” It’s been nearly three months since I started taking cold showers. I got in the hot water with my grandgirls last week, I felt like I was being cooked.

Hose! Bike! Newsletter! 6.30.19

Tim A. Cummins @ 11:51 pm  



My water hose burst today. It was almost two years old. I spent quite a lot on it then because it had a life time warranty. Sure enough, they gave me a replacement today. I had the original packaging and receipt.

I also got a new spray handle. My old one was acting weird.

Went for a 12.80 mile bike ride.

The sun was marvelous.

When I was coming up the Parkview hill, my chain came off. I had it in the wrong gear. Rookie mistake. I was by the Mormon church. Three of their young guys helped me. They have a lot of experience with bikes!

Wrote my newsletter this evening. Also got the labels done. Still need to get stamps and get it printed.

Ny arm is still bothering me. Kind of hard to type.

Anthony! Carl! Ann! 6.29.19

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:31 pm  



Terrific talk with my buddy Anthony today! Great to debrief with him about his recent trip to India.

I went to St. Joseph’s hospital today to visit with my friend Carl Barrington. He’s fighting an infection in his blood. Pray for his speedy recovery!

I found this small fragment of porcelain. It reminded me of the Latin phrase, “Multim in Parvo” or much in little.

I thought this was beautiful.

I stopped by Azalea to visit with the Kendalls. Always a hoot. I took the grandgirls some frozen yogurt.

I went to the Marriott by Stone Mountain this evening to soak in the hot tub. That helps my arm feel a bit better. I liked this art when I was there.

I wrote a letter to Kathy’s previous lung doctor to get the results of her sleep study. We are still trying to get all the paperwork to her new doctor. Not easy!

K and I also went over to K’s sister’s house. She was having trouble with her TV. I’m pretty good at figuring that stuff out. Which I did. It was pretty complicated.

My arm is better but still hurts and is difficult to type.

The girls had fun riding on a mechanical bull!

Superman icecream!

Cleaned up the fellowship hall. I’ll go back the Sunday night before the next team comes to set up the rest of the chairs and put out the fragile items. I don’t like to leave that stuff out on Sunday mornings.

Mr. Google thought it was going to take me a long time to get home!

I thought these were funny.

Biked 12.86 miles.

Fantastic clouds.

I’m editing the video I shot of the team. Soon, I’ll get that uploaded to YouTube.
My right arm is still bothering me. It’s getting better but not as fast as I’d like!

Arm has a bit better flexibility. Still hurts.

Found out that my good friend Pat Young had died unexpectedly from cancer on Monday. Shocking. He was only 62.
