Walk! Español! Medicare! Azalea! 9.7.23

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:42 pm  

Scary. I’d better be on the watch out. It’s one reason why I keep my yard fully trimmed. Snakes don’t like feeling exposed.

I do Guatemala research all the time.

Had a discussion with my buddy Anthony about his new training program. I look at everything before it’s released. I give him ideas about things he should consider.



Climbed my hill fifteen times.

Walked 2.60 miles.

Talked to Tim Deter about my Medicare coverage and about the travel insurance to Guatemala. I gave him the go ahead, we’ll square it away tomorrow.

After our talk, I set up an account on Medicare.gov and paid the premium and made it to debit every month rather than once a quarter.

I was low on ink for my printer. I’m using refurbished/refilled HP printer cartridges from ValueToner. The B/W ink I got earlier this week worked just fine, so I got the color cartridges this time.

They will probably last years. I don’t print very much stuff, but I need it when I need it!

Called my bike guys to see if my new tires were in yet. They weren’t. I wasn’t surprised. Holiday weekend and all.

I called T&G about getting a copy of all the records for K’s Expedition and my Mercury. I’d like to have all that info for our new mechanics. He said that they’d get all the documents together and then give me a call. I’ll just take pictures of every receipt and what they did and keep them in a file on my computer.

Listened to Don Cheto.

Had a nice chat with my Mom.

I ate at Pho 24 for lunch. I had zero bars on my phone. Wow. Didn’t see that coming! So I read segments from Kevin Kelly’s new book of advice. Just down the hill the reception was perfect.

Graffiti at the Vietnamese place.

Hot today.

Helped the kids at the mission. They are doing research on the planets of our solar system.

After the homework was done, I helped air up the tires of several bikes. I explained to them what happens when they skid the tires: it completely wears the rubber off over time. They ruined Everly’s bike like that. I actually put her old bike in the dumpster today. Once the tires are gone and the chain doesn’t work well, it’s not worth fixing. She came down to the dumpster and said good bye to her steed. We had a lot of fun on that bike together.

Always learning new words and slang. Morra and Perro today.

Recorded an episode of Verbal Surgery called “Wild Animal.” Supa coo.
