Thursday 18

Thursday 18- I did my stretches and ran two miles.
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 44 and 69 degrees, S winds at 6 to11MPH, humidity around 36 percent, hazy skies later in the day.
According to the National Weather Service: “Friday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 63. West southwest wind between 5 and 14 mph, with gusts as high as 18 mph. Friday Night: A 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms after 10pm. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 44. Southwest wind between 8 and 14 mph, with gusts as high as 18 mph.”
I got a call from the insurance company that is handling the claim on my truck which their client hit. I spent a little time talking to them and we decided on an amount that was fair. They had to total the truck and I bought it back. I will have enough money to fix the damages with some to spare. It actually worked out pretty good for me. I called a few friends to tell them the news about the settlement and they were happy for me.
I went over to Stoney’s to check things out (I guess it’s kind of a habit) and ate one of the meals-on-wheels dinners. Sitting at the table alone eating without Stoney there just doesn’t feel right. I sure do miss him!
I got back home and went on my evening walk listening to Astronomy Cast lecture: Ep. 169: The Fermi Mission, which is a space telescope that collects gamma rays from pulsars, black holes, and other deep space objects and then creates a map of where they are. While on my walk I dropped over and fed Princess a couple of carrots.
I felt like just kicking back tonight and watching a movie. Just before I did Ginger stopped by to give me a slice of pizza and piece of cake from her daughter’s birthday party they had over at Pizza Hut; I thought that was mighty nice! I watched “Troy” (2004). A very good film that kept me entertained. I’m not so sure how close it follows history because I never read Homer; maybe it’s time I do. Halfway through the film I called Andrew to yap at him for an hour and then went back to the movie.
I setup the Bluetooth modem and now I able to use my netbooks on dialup again; wish we had affordable broadband out here; it’s like $50 a month and I can’t afford that.
I did my stretches; practiced my guitar; wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.
