Walk! T&G! Azalea! 9.6.23

Tim A. Cummins @ 8:25 pm  

Hardly surprising.

The Rookie starring Nathan Fillion is currently my favorite show. He starred in Firefly which is one of my best shows ever, as well as Castle another all time special for me. He is known for bringing cameos with people from Firefly into his new shows. I watched one last night that included the pilot of the spacecraft in his first big show. It was great to see them working together again!


Fun chat with my buddy Anthony today.

Worked out super hard last month. Especially considering the heat!

Checked on my car at T&G this morning. Turned out to only be a loose spark plug wire! Amen. I got some sad news today from the owner of the shop. He’s decided to end the business and leave for rural Georgia. He got tired of all the stress of being the boss. Don’t blame him. Being in charge isn’t for everyone, that’s for sure. Jason has been a good friend and has kept all our old cars going for about twenty years!

Climbed my hill seven times, then got the word that my car was ready. Since I was already sweaty, I decided to walk over to T&G and get my car.

Studied Spanish while I walked. 2.99 miles in all. Didn’t like walking with cars zooming by. Yuck.

Weird looking paper towel on the side of the road.

Jason will be missed. He showed me how to check my transmission fluid before I left. Assured me that I had many years of faithful service with the Mercury left and that he was leaving her in good shape. Amen.

Gassed up my car and checked the fluids. I know how to add transmission fluid when I need it now. He said it hadn’t gone down any since when he had refilled it a few weeks ago.

Called Tim about my health insurance and also travel insurance. We will talk tomorrow I hope.

Listened to Don Cheto while I was driving. Some days I really understand a lot of it. Other days, not so much. Today was a good one.

Hot today.

The apartments across the street are still changing.

Picked up the girls at the bus and took them to the Buford Highway Farmers Market for chicken, mac and cheese and rice. They ate great!

Helped the kids with their homework. I had five second graders today, plus all the middle schoolers. A couple hardly speak any English. It’s why I’m working on EspaƱol so hard. I can pretty much understand and explain everything to them in their own language.

Went to my office to check the mail.

Just keep going.
