Sunday 07

Sunday 07- I did light stretches and that was it because of rain! It finally rained! It rained until 7pm!
Today’s Weather was: Temps of around 40 and 52 degrees, WNW winds of 4 to 12 MPH, humidity around 71 percent, stratus clouds bearing rain and lots of it.
According to the National Weather Service: “Monday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 62. Southwest wind between 3 and 9 mph. Monday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 42. West southwest wind around 9 mph.”
After making a few phone calls to friends and family I drove on over to Stoney’s where Jimmy and his family were preparing to leave around 3pm. I had lunch with them; it was leftover barbecue rib that we made into sandwiches, yum! There was some of that sour cream chocolate cake left over that we smothered with ice cream. Sherry was there earlier and brought some cookies but I missed out on those. Roger Smith brought his friend Mike Bayes over and Mike lecture everyone (except me because I hid in another room) about the state of the Union. I called Dana to tell him that he should come down and talk to Jimmy about removing some of the iron and car parts from the property so he can recycle them. He arrived about a half hour later. Jimmy and Dana went out to the yard in the rain while I explained to Angela how to play Free Cell solitaire on the computer. The rain was coming down pretty hard at the time. I stayed around long enough to help them pack up their car for the trip back home. I gave everyone hugs and we said our goodbyes and I left for home. As they pass my home about a half hour later they honked as they drove by. Jimmy called me up about two hours later to say they had made it home okay. I hope they come back soon!
I spent the rest of the evening going through Wikipedia articles and reading anything I thought was interesting. Two nights ago I mentioned that I was on a train going through Sweden. Well I made a mistake; it was Norway where “Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back” was filmed on the glassier called Hardangerjøkulen. I came across that in my journey through Wikipedia. Funny that I remember the guy that told me about the movie being filmed there; he rolled his own cigarettes and gave me one to try. It was a European brand that was really strong and not very good as our American brands are that I was used to at the time. I don’t smoke anymore. I quit that nasty habit many, many years ago. He also pointed out a town called Hell in Norway, and now I knew where the saying “Cold as Hell” came from! I did travel through Sweden though on my way back to Stockholm where I took the ferry over to Helsinki Finland and traveled around there for a spell.
I did my stretches; practiced my guitar; wrote to my journal, posted it to the web, and called it a night.
