Monday 08

Monday 08- I decided today was the day to stop mourning instead of tomorrow, so I did my stretches, ran two miles, lifted weights, and rode my bike; I feel much better!
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 40 and 57 degrees, NE winds at 6 to 9 MPH, humidity around 45 percent, mostly clear skies. Looks like snow sometime tomorrow night.
According to the National Weather Service: “Tuesday: A 20 percent chance of rain after 10am. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 54. Light wind becoming south southeast between 11 and 14 mph. Winds could gust as high as 20 mph. Tuesday Night: Rain likely before 10pm, then rain and snow likely. Snow level 4300 feet lowering to 2400 feet. Cloudy, with a low around 40. South southeast wind 7 to 14 mph becoming west. Winds could gust as high as 20 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. Little or no snow accumulation expected.”
Fed the birds; they’re now used to me and hang around while I fill the feeder chirping at me to hurry. I even cleaned up the house some.
I went over to Stoney’s; I’m still going to call his house that even though he passed on, to borrow his truck so I can go to the board meeting tonight. I haven’t heard from the insurance company about fixing my truck and don’t want to do any work on it yet, so I still can’t drive it at night. Roger was there and we sat for a spell reminiscing about our dear departed friend.
I went for my evening walk re-listening to Astronomy Cast lecture: Ep. 152: Binary Stars. They now have a few new Podcasts that I need to download.
I practiced my guitar and then I read aloud from the textbooks: “Astronomy Today” review of chapter 6; “The Cell: a Molecular Approach” a short intro to the Genetic Code; and Digital Electronics Course Introduction to Combinational Logic Circuits which is really going to mess with my mind.
I got dressed up and drove down to the community center for the board meeting. The board decided that Marcie Hines is going to fill out her late husband’s term, and Bill Treas is going to fill out the late Bob Seeley’s term. I told everyone that we’re going to have a memorial for Bob Seeley at potluck on the 27th of this month. I also mentioned that a memorial for Stoney will be held sometime in April on a Saturday around his birthday of the 13th depending on when his family could come down. We discussed ways to recruit more members and volunteers to help out our little community; Rob Reese and Bill Treas will look into getting a list of property owners and maybe do some kind of mass mailing. The meeting went well.
I got home and did my stretches and practiced my guitar, and then watched “American Experience: The Bombing of Germany” which dealt with American bombing of military targets vs. British bombing of cities in WWII.
I finished the evening reading from “The Letters of Richard Feynman”. Then I wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.
