Got up about 8:30 and it was sunny and getting blazing HOT.
I had a couple of eggs for breakfast and then I started doing laundry and messed in the yard some. I pulled a few weeds in the front, pulled some dead stalks off of the lilies and trimmed back some of the vines along the deck, that is an un-ending task. I also roamed around the house looking for some things to take photos of, a few wasps building a nest in the front porch, going to have to kill them soon, and then followed a dragonfly around but he just wouldn’t stay still.
Tried to mess with the Falcon 40 and decided what if any tunning needed to be done on the linkage between the servos and the swash plate, it looks mostly level but the times I’ve tried to “hover” the ‘copter it would slide to the left, it may have been the wind but I still haven’t determined that fully. I wish I had an indoor area like a gym to fly and practice in.
I messed with printing some photos today, cleaned the nozzles and have done head checks but the print quality is still pretty bad, I’ve just left the printer stay dormant too long with the ink it has.
The paper had an article about a young couple from Gwinnett where she has a similar “flesh-eating” bacteria as another Gwinnett gal did sometime last year. She seemed to get it from somewhere in her yard and the other gal got it when she fell from a ZIP-line that broke and she fell, cutting her leg and ending up in a river somewhere near West Georgia College. Both have now lost all there feet and hands, very sad, both were at most in their 20’s. Reading about the gal’s husband and the fact that he is going to have to explain to her that she has lost her hands&legs is going to be really HARD and I was crying at the end of it like a baby.
Nicki called up and I gave her the Direct TV login so she could watch the Olympics through the Internet.
Met up with ChrisW (was Kohrs now Finch) and in celebration of Brian’s Birthday we went out for some Prime Rib as always. Had planned on and did meet at the Old Town Tavern in Suwanee but after getting our drinks and then ordering the Prime Rib we were told they wouldn’t have any until after 5:30, the menu says after 4pm so we were quite upset. Also, about 2 years ago or maybe only a year ago, @ Brian’s b-day last year we had a similar thing happen when we were there a bit early at the OTT over in Lawrenceville. After that we had boycotted that establishment. A manager showed up and then told us they had only medium and above, so they had shoe leather and tougher. We decided to leave and go ahead and forget Olde Towne forever and just head on over to the Outback and have the Prime Rib there, it was more equidistant from our respective homes and we may have paid a bit more but the food was way better IMHO. Also the waitress Laura was a doll. On the way home we stopped in at the Beverage Superstore and picked up some Creme Brulee Stout.
Went out to the Taco Mac for a couple of beers after dinner. Had the Dad’s Little Helper again for the 2nd list and then the LAzy Magnolia Southern Gentleman, nice Brown Ale. Cute Ashley was in a good mood today and Brad at the bar was not. Meg from the bar yesterday was there but very quiet as you would expect. Watched a few American women win some Olympic Gold in swimming.
