I never expected to see a couple of arrests, an escape, and what seemed like shady exchange happen, all while having a quick lunch at the Krystal in town.
We get window seats like we always do, and shortly after our food is brought to us, a maroon Cadillac decides at the very last second that they want Krystal for lunch too. They bust a u-turn and come in the exit and nearly hit a car that just pulled away from the drive-thru window. One guy gets out of the car and comes into Krystal to order his lunch, while an unmarked police car pulls in to see about the Cadillac. There are two women in the back of the car. While the police officers, all 6 of them, stand around and figure out the situation and what to do with the people in the car, the guy that came inside is telling another customer that he has no desire to go outside and get in the middle of a situation that doesn’t involve him. He gets his food and leaves out the side door away from the situation.
I just had my 2nd migraine in less than 1 week. One is bad enough, but 2 without a good few-month gap in between is brutal.
We watched the first night of History Channel’s The Bible last night and without a doubt will be watching the rest of it as it airs. It’s amazing some of the events that we may not remember as well as we once did. For me personally, this is right up my alley, because I love seeing things put together in chronological order. The only major change I would have done so far is not to have been so brief with the time from the beginning up to the flood.
The new One Less Reason album is going to be amazing. ‘Blueprints’ and ‘Uneasy’ I’ve heard, and I’m wearing out replay now!
My car has had a squeak underneath the hood for nearly a year now. It started off as just a slight, belt squeal which gradually got louder and more annoying as the months passed on. The car is 10 years old, so we changed the belt and that did nothing. Changed the belt-tensioner, that did nothing as well. The car has had some electrical issues throughout this time, mostly with the lights dimming as you braked, and sometimes a slight flickering of the time display on the radio. So since the belt and belt-tensioner didn’t help, we thought we had it narrowed down to a bad alternator. It was charging at an irregular voltage anyways, so we had hoped that would kill two birds with one stone. Well it killed one. Turns out the harmonic balancer is shot. When the car is running, if you shine a light down, it’s definitely got a good bit of wobble in it.
I’ve come to the conclusion that having a pounding headache on the first day back to work each week is due to the fluorescent lights.. it has to be.
We spent a few hours today with our buddy Jim at the shooting range in Cisco. I don’t think I have ever been to a shooting range before, so I didn’t know quite what to expect. But seeing that today was a holiday, it was pretty busy. We each shot about 4 clips worth of shots each. I’m pretty happy with my shot at 25yds, especially given that this is my first time, as well as the first time shooting my gun. I am way happy with my P99 A/S though. I especially like the shorter trigger pull after the initial shot—very cool!
It’s so cold in my office right now that I just had to fix a cup of hot chocolate warm up. Perfect!
We managed to pick this up during the lunch hour, and probably wouldn’t have even noticed it had we not been riding the last few weeks without the radio playing. A nice little click sound was all it took to realize that we’d caught something. Luckily we were heading home, and looks like it’s in a patch-able place.
I am very much looking forward to the start of the new season of Gold Rush in a little bit!
It is better to be prepared for an opportunity and not have one than to have an opportunity and not be prepared. —
