Thursday This n That

Today's bird on the Bird a Day calendar is the red-legged honeycreeper.

If you're not on FB, you missed my adventure in car-trouble.  I went fishing on Tuesday and when I was ready to go home, my car wouldn't start.  No even a cursory click-click.  Dead battery.  Totally dead because even after Hubs drove the 20 minutes out to where I was stranded, it wouldn't jumpstart.  Thank goodness we weren't fishing together that day.  Thank goodness we got that second vehicle last year.  BIG thank goodness I have an understanding and wonderfully handy husband who knew how to change out a battery.  AND he took my car out yesterday when he ran his own errands so I wouldn't worry that it was more than the battery.

It's too hot here.  Too hot to fish.  Too hot to garden.  Too hot to think.  Even with the AC.  I just want to lay in the recliner and watch TV.  Because it's apparently also too hot to read.  Bleh.

Yes, it's also too hot for coffee.  Well, coffee past like 8am.  Good thing I keep waking up at 5-ish. LOL

That's all I've got today.  What do you have to share with the class?


  1. Iced coffee is good.

    Heat is hard on batteries. And tires (if they are under-inflated.)

    Speaking of cars, I'm taking Drover in for a 5K mile oil change and tire rotation. I can't believe he's 8 years old and doesn't even have 50K yet. So, yeah, definitely a hermit. Ah well.

    Ugh on the car troubles though. :( It's too damn hot to be standing even in the shade during the heat of the day.

    I caught a picture (blurry) of that sort-of-woodpecker bird. I'll remember to email it to you once of these days. LOL Back to my writing cave. It's dark, semi-cool, and...scratch that. I have to put on real clothes to go get an oil change. *sigh*

  2. Well, it's nice to know you're having some hot weather. We're still suffering the wettest June on record!

    Sorry about the car trouble, but lucky you having such a great hub.

    Was my birthday yesterday (56), celebrated with a wonderful dinner out with friends and a little flutter on the roulette table at our local casino. Started off with £10 worth of chips and left with £35.00 - result!

    Country in chaos this morning with the vote to leave the EU. Just as I'm planning to sell my flat and move, damn it. I must admit I didn't think we'd go but democracy demands we follow the winners - so out we go.

  3. Too hot to fish...isn't that the title to a country song?

    Sorry about your car, but I'm glad it wasn't more serious (and expensive).
