Heavy rains make some pains
I will take an ale from the tap and tell me woes ta ya
You do not wanna to be me today. You may end up sorry you even read this post <fair warning>
Firstly the heavy rain that we really needed, well it make my flat roof weak and my ancient cesspool overflow. SO i commenced to clean and tar from a bucket of rubberized gunkoid stuff from HD over the suspected wide problem area on my hands and knees..
Then i had the other .... stuff. This, maybe 40-50yr old cesspool, has not been cleaned out for 30yrs. What doya think. Is it time? I called around and some said it may be too dense to get out. Well, i decided to delve the 6'' hole in the cement top with a long sturdy poker with a couple of pointed parallel short boards screwed on one end. I was fortunate to be able to get the situation loosened up well enough after 20minutes. Gad that was a workout. How do i figure that all in walking miles? That's not on gramma's conversion list, for some reason. Well anyway the guy will be here the 1st ( my pension check will arrive) to use his suckamatic. Aren't you glad you decided to read this?
On a much more amiable venue, our cat lovie finally was a bit more accommodating/tolerating to the two kitties. Although there still is hissing happening, this actually occurred last night.
One last thing to relate is something i am really excited about. My wife's father's estate is settled now and there is enough to get my son something his grandfather would have loved to give him.....THIS!. It is one righteous triathlon bike i got a great deal on getting a third off. It is a Trek Cronus C. It is 11lbs lighter than that old 25yr old purple bike that he has been riding and it corners, powers, and rides like a dream. He loves it too.
Well that's all the eclectic news from this menagerie. I hope you all find an accommodating weekend waiting for you.
''Sam put his ragged orc-cloak under his master's head, and covered them both with the grey robe of Lorien; and as he did so his thoughts went out to that fair land, and to the Elves, and he hoped that the cloth woven by their hands might have some virtue to keep them hidden beyond all hope in this wilderness of fear...But their luck held, and for the rest of that day they met no living or moving thing; and when night fell they vanished into the darkess of Mordor.'' - - -rotk, chapter III
Faerie contains many things besides elves and fays and besides dwarfs, witches, trolls, giants or dragons; it holds the seas, the sun, the moon, the sky; and the earth, and all things that are one in it: tree and bird, water and stone, wine and bread, and ourselves, mortal men, when we are enchanted."
— J.R.R. Tolkien
May the grace of Manwë let us soar with eagle's wings!
In the air, among the clouds in the sky
Here is where the birds of Manwe fly
Looking at the land, and the water that flows
The true beauty of earth shows
With the stars of Varda lighting my way
In all the realms this is where I stay
In the realm of Manwë Súlimo
