Three full days without a drop of rain. Huzzah! Today I saw a pale bedraggled brown snake look up at the sky and I thought I heard a hiss of relief. He was sunning himself on one of the bricks I need as a support for a big old air-conditioner I use for bigger parties in the summer. I regretfully moved him out of the way and he resentfully moved on. Such are the small disappointments of life that we all must sustain even brown snakes.
Camera Girl is cooking meatballs, sausage and making a huge red sauce to use on the pasta dish for Saturday. This is big stuff. She’s got about thirty pounds of meat and the hissing of the cooking meat sounds like some industrial process whenever she takes one of the pans out of the oven. Forces are being applied and profound sorcery is at work. I’m giving her some space today since this part of the effort is crucial. I have my plate full anyway. Cleaning and installation of the A/C is something I like to do just right. The unit is too heavy to be supported by the window and I never bought the chain hoist I wanted to get especially for this task. So it’s a manual operation and my back isn’t as young as it once was so preparation and planning are crucial. Luckily I’ve been studying the techniques that riggers use for installing 60,000 to 80,000 pound components. It’s quite an art. But I did notice that having a huge powerful young guy with a back of iron is one of the crucial components of a successful rigging operation. Well I’m a guy so that’s one out of five. And I am motivated so I predict success with only slight damage to life and limb.
I saw this morning that Tyler from Portly Politico was hoping that I had landed a personal interview with Hungarian prime minister Victor Orban. Now I must admit that would be quite a coup for me. But I’ll start smaller. Maybe I can get an interview with Max Morton. He’s a fellow who has contributed a number or articles at American Greatness and I find myself in wide agreement with his opinions. But I haven’t managed to contact him so far. We’ll see.
The Hungarians, Poles and a few of the other Eastern European countries have emerged as the most enlightened places for people interested in resisting the global Left. Wouldn’t it be interesting if the former Soviet Bloc nations end up being the free world. Life is strange that way.
Well, after I finish my chores I’ll look around and see what I want to write about. The sun is shining and I’m feeling mighty optimistic so don’t be surprised if it’s something upbeat. I just finished re-watching the final 2nd season episode of Star Trek, “Assignment: Earth” and will write the review today. That’s the one with a very young Teri Garr. Of course it has its Star Trek goofiness but it at least has a discernable story to tell so it will get a pretty good mark.
More to follow later. Have a great day.
