My Chronicle for 2017
by Richard R. Wilt

January 1, 2017
New Years, was at Millie's for New Years Eve.
1:23AM Arrived home from Millie's.
2:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed
8:15AM Up and about.
9:00AM Took Tyler to work. 9:15AM Back home and having a little breakfast, toast and espresso.
11:30AM Back to bed to snooze.
2:45PM Tyler text and needs a ride home.
2:48PM Troy called and said Tyler was having trouble with his phone and wanted to let me know he would be home late tonight or early tomorrow. He also has some brain fart, says he wants to talk to me when he gets home. He gets these brain farts when ever he goes to one of these festivals.
3:00PM Picked up Tyler from work, when I got back home and Chandler and Andy are here. Tyler is upset because Chandler and Andy are leaving Tuesday for Maryland.
6:00PM Going to Millie's 6:30PM Millie said her crock pot has stopped working so the roast isn't cooking. Going to McDonald's to get some supper. Got double biscuit and gravy for Millie and breakfast burritos for me.
10:00PM While watching TV someone called Millie and told her niece's husband (Richard Piccolo) just died at Ruby Hospital in Morgantown.
11:00PM Going home early. Millie has to make some telephone calls to notify everyone in the family. Since Millie is the matriarch of the family this has fallen on her to take this responsibility for the family.
11:30PM Watching Star Trek Voyager series on BBCA.

January 2, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
10:00AM Up and about, nothing to stay up for, so back to bed for a while.
12:30PM Millie called, she was up most of the night and this morning calling and receiving calls from relatives about the death of Richard Piccolo yesterday.
1:00PM Checked on Tyler in garage, Troy is asleep on the couch in the garage.
2:45PM Troy came in the house, he has his right arm in a make shift sling. I asked what happened and he said he had a seizure at the festival and they took him to the med center and they said he was dehydrated and that was the problem. He finally admitted that he had a couple hits of acid. Of course, that had nothing to do with his seizure. What kind of shit does he think he can feed me. They had to restrain him when he was on acid and that is when his shoulder was injured and of course, he has no memory of hurting his shoulder. This shit is going to have to end or I will have to put him out on the street and he will probably continue to try to kill himself with all of this shit. His father is a drunk and he is becoming a junky.
5:00PM Fixed Kasbahs, green peppers, onions, and sauerkraut for supper.
7:00PM Called Barb.
7:15PM Called Millie to see how she is getting along today. She wants me to come by and pick her up and follow her to the garage to get her car fixed and then meet Bill Lewis and his wife at Jimmy's for lunch at noon.

7:00PM Back home. My phone isn't working right. It stopped working while at lunch.
7:30PM Turned my cell phone off and then back on and it reset and seems to be working fine now. Called Barb and let her know and called Millie and let her know. I had called them both on Tyler's cell to tell them that my cell was not working correctly.
8:00PM Received a couple texts from Kit with some great pictures attached.
9:40PM Received a text from Bill that they had made it to Marion, VA on there way home. Had a great time today with lunch and the visit. Bill's wife Kitty is really a very nice lady.

January 4, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
9:30AM Started getting several of the damn calls again. Marked them all rejected and those numbers are taken care of when they come in. I know they change the number when they get no response from a call.
10:00AM Dr. Tomes office called about my PSA test results and she wants me to see a urologist at UHC since I have no idea when I will get an appointment with the VA. The VA has changed my GP again and the last time at the VA urologist all I saw was a PA and she referred me back to the GP.

January 5, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
9:30AM Received another of those calls, placed the number on reject list.
12:00PM Up and about.
5:00PM Checked into the WVFN net.
6:00PM Took Troy to Mia Margarita to pick up his pay check. Roads are in bad shape at Charles Point. About 2" snow on ground at this time, still snowing.
7:00PM Called Barb, she is snowed in.
7:30PM Called Millie, told her if the weather doesn't clear up a little and the road conditions improve we will not go to Fairmont.

January 6, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
7:00PM Called Barb

8:00PM Called Millie. Very cold. About 10 degrees.
January 7, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed. My main Laptop stopped working. Have to take to Staples to see if they can replace the fan.
10:00AM Up and about. Still very cold out.
1:00PM Asked Tyler if he had to work today and if he needed a ride. He said yes he works and if he needs a ride he will clean the car off. Just looks like he thinks it isn't his responsibility to do anything he doesn't want to do is OK. I just don't understand the younger generation thinking. If they decide it isn't to their benefit they just don't have to do it. I need to go out to take my computer to get worked on but I can wait until it is warmer and the snow melts by itself. I am not going to clean the snow from my porch, walk, or car. At my age I shouldn't have to even think of doing that, since I have two young men living off me and doing nothing but play games and listen to music and smoke cigarettes and pot.
1:15PM Temperatures is 19.4 degrees barometer 30.25 and steady humidity outside 73% light wind out of the north, and east.
3:00PM Tyler off to work. Someone had to take him, he didn't clean off my car so I have no obligation to take him to work.
7:30PM Barb called. Made a mistake and mentioned Obama wife and upset Barb. She does not like politics in anyway so I try not to mention anything to her.
8:30PM Called Millie, she called while I was making myself some supper, corn beef hash with raw onion.

There is nothing that they could give me that I can't get at a drug store. Also asked about my Urology appointment and she said she had not heard anything back from UHC about an appointment.
7:30PM Called Barb. She seems to be OK. Of course, Dana hasn't been around to check on her.

3:00PM Bryan and Nelson came by an dropped off $590,00 fir rent.
4:00PM Took the rent to the bank and deposited rent in Eric's account.

9:00PM That black Son of a Bitch President is on all the TV stations giving his farewell speech. I don't want to hear any of his bull shit. Just 10 days and is gone. That is what we all hope but knowing the press he will be on TV every day with some sort of bull shit on how great he is and how lousy Trump is. If he doesn't pardon Hillary in the next 10 days her ass is toast and she knows it.

January 11, 2017

9:00AM Woke up when Tyler went to work, back to sleep.

2:50PM Talked to Millie.
7:00PM Called Barb. Watching news on TV. Missed Trumps press conference today but the news will let me know what they want me to know. Watching FOX.

January 12, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.

He was upset that I would not trust him with my pin number. I wouldn't trust my mother with my pin number. When you have it in your head and then you know that no one has it except you.
9:00PM Tyler fixed some steak, it was very good. Tyler seems to be a good cook as long as he cooks what he wants to cook, but he always makes a mess and never cleans up after himself. I suppose when you are cooking in a restaurant you always have a dish washer cleaning up after you, so the cook never learns to clean up when they cook.
11:00PM Found a YouTube on how to remove the fan from my HP laptop and it is quite a job. Have to remove the keyboard and all of the units inside including the mother board because the fan is mounted on the mother board. Nothing to lose. Either I will fix it or will have to buy a new computer which what I have to do if I don't replace fan.

He made a motion and the vote had two nay, me and K8RAS. Nutty motion "Not to volunteer with the Health Dept. or any organizations that do not make sure they have well trained and good operators" This is the way I understood it but will get the quote of the motion from the Sinewaves when it comes out after the monthly meetings.

I really didn't want him to go because of the weather but you know you just can't stop him when he makes up his mind. It is only money and I hope it works out for him. He has to have a car. Now if I can get the T-shirt equipment sold for Troy so he can get a car.

1:00AM Typed up the agreement between Tyler and me.
11:30AM Tyler is out somewhere trying to get insurance on his car. He wants everything in a hurry. Just like the car, he was going to get a car for a couple thousand dollars and what did he end up with, a 6000 dollar car and, of course, I came through for him again. I make it to easy for him.
12:00PM Back to bed for a short nap.
2:30PM Back up. Tyler told me the check was for $6024.75 and I told him to put $25.00 my savings account on Monday and the he will owe me $120.00 per payday for the next 56 weeks starting his next payday. He went out and got insurance and I think it is costing around $300 per month. I am only financing this car because Tyler can't get a good interest rate to buy the car. I hope I haven't made a mistake. I think I will make some inquiries to see if I can find a cheaper insurance for him. Maybe to put him on my policy and let him pay the amount for his car. 7:00PM Tyler fixed steak, mash potatoes, toast, and broccoli cheese soup. It was delicious. Tyler is becoming an excellent cook.
7:10PM Called Barb, no answer.

Told me also to drink a lot more water. Start taking the new oral sugar meds by the name of JARDIANCE 25mg. One at night and one in morning when I get up.

I told him I wanted him to deposit $25.00 in my account now and pick up some deposit slips so he would have them to use each payday to put money in my account.
4:00PM Put a beef roast w/potatoes, carrots, and onions in oven.

I'll eat on what I have in the house, which I can go for quite a while since I have frozen and canned items and will eat them. The boys don't like that kind of food so let them suffer. The only thing I do need is paper towels so may stop somewhere tomorrow and pick up a package. Maybe a couple things tomorrow.
7:00PM Called Barb, talked about today being mom and pops 88th wedding anniversary. They were married February 4, 1929. Also remember this date as being the day I took pop to WVU Hospital in 1985 for evaluation for Alzheimer's disease. He walked in and I had to carry him out 4 days later. That was the beginning of the end. He contracted Legionnaires disease while he was in the hospital and he was only home for a day and we had to put him in Fairmont General Hospital where they diagnosed he had pneumonia, He passed away on June 13, 1985.
8:00PM Called Millie, all I could do was bitch to her about the boys. She tried to make me feel better. I am going to have to do something before to long. Tyler was supposed to deposit $25,00 in my savings account last week and still hasn't done it. I don't have much faith the he will do it or that he will make his payments on time every two weeks. It is going to be a hassle from now on.
9:00PM Just got Ruby's notes in an email so will have to work them up for the website.
11:00PM Ruby's notes are up on the WVHCGS Web Site and on the Archives.

"Seriously????
From:Wendy Wendy@bnwinc.com
To:cn8ff cn8ff@aol.com
Date:Wed, Feb 8, 2017 3:30 pm

Seriously? You unfriend me and then post about it? Actually, I do have the “backbone to confront you personally” regarding your bigoted, racist, misogynistic, xenophobic and downright hateful posts, and I have done so in the past. But, instead of you engaging with me, you did what you always do --- you didn’t respond. Instead you let your like-minded friends reply. On at least two occasions I’ve replied to your posts and once I was personally attacked and called something along the lines of a libtard by one of your friends; which is not only offensive to progressive thinkers, but decidedly offensive to persons with developmental disabilities. Since you don’t reply when someone challenges you, I don’t even bother anymore. Your lack of any response also leads me to believe that you simply enjoy stirring the shit, but when you’re called out on it, you do the same thing our thin-skinned, orange-faced, “so-called” president does – whine about it on social media.

(Anyone reading the above can see why I didn't confront her because she is so far to the left in her thinking and is filled with hate. I don't know where she got all of this hate for her country, her president, and me)

I have no idea what my mother said to you because she won’t admit to saying anything at all. I will not push her on it because I don’t want to draw her any further into this childish ridiculousness. It would upset her terribly and she would fret and stress endlessly over it. I love my mother very much, but she does not hear well and sometimes fills in the blanks for what she thinks she may have heard. Either way, it was a conversation between a mother and a daughter – not meant to drive a wedge between you and her. I think it’s rather silly you jumped to the conclusion that was my intention. Actually, I don’t think there is much I could say that would turn my mother against you. Maybe if I read to her the post you wrote about unfriending me, she might not take too kindly to it, but I seriously doubt it would change the way she feels about you. But, I won’t do that because quite frankly I’m done with this nonsense. My mother loves you very much and always tells me and others how much you do for her and how she can always rely on you to be there for her. She speaks very highly of you and until now, so did I. I think it is wonderful how much you care for Mom and that you always call her and check on her, while her own daughter who lives yards away from her, does not. I don’t know what she’d do down there in that god-forsaken-back country if she didn’t have you. However, like many of our other family members, she does not affirm your bigoted ideology. She is able to overlook it because she loves you. What I did was tell her about the heated discussion Kitty and Leah got into over a post you’d made. She asked what it was about and I told her almost verbatim what you’d posted. I did not put my “own slant on it.” I think she’s quite capable of drawing her own conclusions.

However juvenile it might be, if you want to forget I was ever in your life that is most definitely your prerogative. If by unfriending me and then posting about it on social media, your intention was to hurt or punish me in some way, you may be disappointed. However, it will most certainly hurt and greatly upset my mother, so I will not be speaking with her anymore about this. I am sure you do not want to upset her anymore either and I hope you’ll at least extend the same courtesy.

I’ll guess I’ll have to sign this, “your former” niece since you have forgotten I was ever in your life.

Wendy"

Only a paranoid far left liberal would think I was talking about her
I posted the unfriend on Feb 7 and then sent this message. This is the Facebook remarks she is so upset over.

"I just did something that really hurts me. I had to unfriend an individual that would take my remarks and opinions on items on FB and repeat them to a life long friend, who does not have Internet, putting their own slant on my remarks and opinions just to drive a wedge between me and a life long friend. This individual has lost me as a friend although I regret having to do this. The individual does not have the backbone to confront me personally so they are the one that has lost. I will forget that they were ever in my life.
7:00PM Called Barb and, of course, I didn't say a word to her about Wendy. I don't want to upset her. Seems Wendy loves to upset her mother. If she didn't she wouldn't say anything to her about me in any way. I never say anything about Wendy and her and Bob's warped mind.
8:00PM I called Kit and left her a message and she called me back and relayed to her what Wendy had sent to me.
9:00PM Called Millie, she doesn't feel very well. I think she has some kind of bug. Hope she gets over it quickly.

6:00PM Saw on the news that the district federal court found in favor of the lower court against Trump. I will make the statement that all of these Liberals will live to regret this decision but of course when something terrible happens in the US they will say it is all Trump's fault. Letting all of these refugees including the radical muslims sneak in with the refugees to form all of these islamic pockets (medinas) throughout the US will be the death of America as we know it. The only bright thing in it all, I will probably die and won't be effected.
7:00PM Called Barb. Starting to sneeze a lot.
9:20PM Called Millie, seems she is also sneezing just like me. Must be something in the air. Haven't seen her since Sunday so I don't think we caught anything from each other.

1:00PM Called DHHR to find out what happened. They told me that now under Trump they can not do automatic deductions from Disabled SS or SSI for spousal support, so they are sending me the $300 and then I will have to send them the $300 back to them and then will have to make arrangements to start sending them the money each month.
1:20PM Called Eric and told him this. He is up tight because his mother demanded her $300 so he gave it to her.
2:40PM Received a call from Joey (Joliffe) at DHHR Harrison County and he told me when I receive the $330 check just put it in an envelop and send it to 153 W. Main Street, Suite D, Clarksburg, WV 26301 and they would take care of it and send it to Jo. I hope they get this straightened out.

I would like to have a few places in the same area and then I would go down and look at all at one time.

3:00PM Received the mail, two letters from DHHR, one with the explanation of why they didn't get the $300 from SS. Seems I was changed from normal SS to SSD plus SSI and they could not get a payment from SS. The second letter was to inform me that DHHR had resubmitted a request of a deduction from my SS. Don't know what will happen. Also said in the letter that if I would have to go back to court about this to notify them. I won't know until next month when my SS deposit arrives in the bank.

9:00PM A young girl (teens or twenties) was sitting in a pick up in front of the church with the blinkers on and I ask her if I could help and she said her boy friend had walked to the Go Mart to get gas, the truck was out of gas. I drove to the Go Mart and found a young man walking back with a gas can and I stopped and brought him back to his truck. He put the gas in and then the battery was low and the truck would not start so Richard had been waiting the church parking lot and came over with a pair of jumpers and we jumped the truck and got it started. The couple was from West Milford/Jane Lew area, glad we could help them.

Bill and I were the only net controls on the SJARA Tuesday Night Net for nearly 4 years. They don't have Bill and me to run their nets anymore. I don't believe I will every hold another net unless it is an emergency and the way Dick N8FMD wants it we will never operate in an exercise or emergency as a club since he made a motion and the club voted for it that SJARA will not participate in drills unless SJARA approves of the operators and makes sure they are experienced.

4:00PM Took Troy to work. Not going to funeral home for visitation of Bill, it is just to depressing for me and it won't do him any good and the family won't notice if I don't go. Looking a Bill just reminds me that it won't be long before I will be there and I don't need that reminder.
6:00PM Got a notice of a place for sale just about 8 miles from Eric and mentioned the address to Eric in a text and he said he would drop by and take a look at it.

February 26, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed
11:30AM Up and about. Walked into the living room and there is a boy asleep on my couch. Troy in bed sound asleep and Tyler is no where to be found. The boy on the couch is a friend of Tyler's. I told him to get up and get out. I am tied of getting up in the morning and finding someone asleep on my couch or in the garage. Also someone had been sleeping on the other couch but whom ever it was sleep there was gone but left the couch and a cover showing someone had slept there.
Went to the garage and unplugged everything in the garage hoping that maybe I would get there attention. I picked up all the used towels and Tyler's clothes he left in the bathroom and threw them into his room. Maybe he will pick them up and so some cleaning up.
1:00PM Tyler came and I said something to him and of course he got defensive and wanted to argue about why was I jumping his ass because it was all his brother's problem.
1:15PM Since I was yelling at Tyler, Troy decided to get up and join in on the argument. Of course, they were both saying it was the problem of the other and when I said someone should at least do some cleaning, Troy brought the problem that my dog made the mess and that set me off. They just couldn't see why I was upset and why I was yelling. I told them that I have told them over and over about cleaning up after themselves and they don't even hear me so I have to yell to get their attention. It really doesn't work. I went to the kitchen and took the clean dishes from the dish washer and Troy came in and finished loading the dishwasher. They then both went to the garage and plugged everything back in and started playing with their toys and have since ignoring me as usual.
1:30PM Tyler came in and said he will be out by March 28. Don't know why that date, why not tomorrow or this afternoon. They both want me to just feel guilty for getting on their backs. I will never get through to them. It is my fault, I have just cuddled them to much. They think they are entitled to living here and living off me. Nothing that has happened to them is someone else's fault.
2:00PM They are both in the garage and walk back and forth to the bathroom or their rooms and say nothing to me as usual. Just like I am not even here. As long as I don't make waves they are happy.
4:00PM Troy went to work. Tyler gave me the title to the Jeep and I sent the following information to Jason in SC. State of Ohio Title

I don't know if I will ever get any information back but Jason is going to check and if he wants the title I will get Tyler to sign the title over to him and he can do what he wants with it. 7:00PM Barb called and we talked for a while. I did some bitching to her about the boys, but I feel bad when I do that to her, she doesn't deserve me bitching to her, she has enough of her own problems.
7:45PM Called Millie and bitched to her for a while. Of course, she was polite and listened to what I had to say.

February 27, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.

Note: Recap of what is happening with Jo's spousal support and DHHR. Feb 13, 2017 Received a call from Eric that his mother had not received her $300.00 from DHHR and she had called them and she was not going to get it so she raise hell with him and he gave her the $300.00 and then he called me. I called DHHR to see what had happened and was told that my SS had been changed to SSD and they could not take the money out of my account. Was told I would receive the check for the $300.00 had been sent from DHHR to me. I received a call from Steven Joliffe at DHHR Harrison County and he told me when I received the $300.00 check just put it in an envelop and send it to 153 W. Main St Suite D, Clarksburg, WV 26301 abd they would take care of it and send it to JO.

Feb 14, 2017 Received the mail from DHHR.

Feb 15, 2017
Sent the check and paperwork they sent back to DHHR. Received the mail, two letters from DHHR, one with the explanation of why they didn't get the $300 from SS. Seems I was changed from normal SS to SSD plus SSI and they could not get a payment from SS. The second letter was to inform me that DHHR had resubmitted a request of a deduction from my SS. Don't know what will happen. Also said in the letter that if I would have to go back to court about this to notify them. Called Eric and relayed the information from DHHR. Told him to tell his mother that if the money shows up in my account in March I will send it to DHHR.

Feb 22, 2017
Received a letter from SS telling me that I would receive my whole SS for February on March 3, 2017 and I would have to pay the support to DHHR myself.

Feb 23, 2017
Received a letter from SS telling me that the spousal deduction had been reinstated and I would not receive it in my March payment.

Note: I know what will probably happen. When I first started the deduction from my SS I was told I was in the rears by DHHR and I had to pay an extra $300.00 to pay me ahead because DHHR does not enter the amount into the computer until after the first of the month so the computer will say I was in the rears by a month and I faught them for 8 months about a .44 cent interest charge and I finally got tired and paid the .44cents. If this happens again I am going personally into the DHHR and put some knots on someone's head.

6:30AM Received a text from Tyler stating he loved me and good night. Why 6:30 in the morning and waking me up.
8:30AM Up and about. Heard music coming from the garage so I went out to get something out of the freezer for breakfast. The lights were on, the space heater was going full blast and there was a lazy bum sleeping in my garage. I had just lost it last night about the filth in the garage and the sleeping over in my house by people I don't even know. I just seem to get through to either of these boys.
I am thinking more and more about selling this house but in the condition it is in I will probably not get a good price out of it. I just hope if I do sell I will get enough to cover the mortgage. The bank said my house was worth over $160,000.00 when they gave me the loan and I figure I may not enough if I sell it to cover the $120,000.00 I owe on it. These two boys just don't care for anything except their instant self gratification.
9:00AM Fixed two biscuit, cheese, sausage and a cup of coffee for breakfast. Watching FOX on TV. Didn't watch the Oscars last night but from the news it was a total fiasco. Looks like it consisted of a bunch of stupid self serving idiots. The only thing any of them are worth is acting because they can't do anything else and we just have to watch movies to fill out leisure time and our lust for entertainment in our mundane lives.
1:00PM Tired so going back to bed.
3:00PM Back up.
4:00PM Troy went to work, I don't how he got there or who took him, possibly Tyler. Tyler did come in and run the vacuum cleaner around a little but not much, just in the middle of the hall, dinning room, and living room. Well, it is better than nothing. 7:00PM Fixed myself some supper, Chinese and dry noodles. 7:30PM Called Barb.
9:45PM Troy called to come and get him from work.
10:00PM Going to pick up Troy, talked to Millie while going to pick up Troy.
10:20PM Back home. Troy told me that the person sleeping in the garage this morning was the girl he has been bringing here from work. I couldn't tell because she was covered up when I went into the garage.
11:30PM Troy took my car and went to Walmart, he texted and is going to pick up a few groceries, your guess is as good as mine what he will get.

February 28, 2017

5:00PM Has rained all day. Tyler told me he only put $115.00 in my account, don't know why $5.00 short.
7:00PM Called and talked to Barb.
8:00PM Spent most of the day on Zillow looking for places in Florida.
Thinking more and more about moving to somewhere in Florida. Getting so tired of just keeping my head above water and the boys just don't seem to care unless it effects them directly. They would just let this house fall around them and then wonder why. I just can't keep up with the house keeping. I am lucky to just keep ahead of my own washing and cleaning up after the boys and the dog. I don't know what I will do when things start growing outside and I just don't have the energy to fight the boys to get things done. The deck needs cleaning and waterproofing and I just don't know if I the energy to do it.
9:00PM Watching Trump and his address to the congress.
10:30PM Millie called, seems she has just about as much energy as I do.

2:00PM Got a notice from Go Daddy that WVHCGS.com, domain name and website hosting is due on May 4, 2017. Will have to let the Genealogical Society know.
3:00PM Troy just came through and said Tyler just got pissed off and destroyed his cell phone because of something that was said to him on the phone, stupid act. Tyler told me last night that his hours have been cut so looks like my money for the car is going down the drain. I will never learn.
3:30PM Called Kaufman Realty and talked to Kathie (sp) and she is coming by tomorrow at 2PM to take a look at the house and make a comparison and let me know what the market value is for my house. I am just getting tired of all of this shit with the boys. I think I will just cut and go and they will have to take care of themselves.
700PM Called Barb.
730PM Troy borrowed my car to go pick up his paycheck and go to Walmart.

March 4, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
12:00PM Up and about. Had some oatmeal for breakfast/lunch. Getting things put together for the realtor coming at 2PM. 1:00PM Running vacuum to pick up the dog hair. I am going to have to do something about Bella and her shedding. I may have to get rid of her. I just can't keep up with the shedding and the boys just ignore anything that has to be done. I have lost the fight and am just tired of the pushing and pushing to get something done around the house. The less they do will make more determined to sell this house and go somewhere else.
2:00PM Cathy Keener Real Estate Agent from KRB Properties came by and took measurements of the house and property to make a comparison of property values in the area to let me know what I can expect to receive for the house if I sell it.
5:00PM Going to Millie's. She said she wanted to go to eat Mexican.
5:30PM Arrived at Millie's and we decided not to eat Mexican so we stayed home and had potato soup, and pepperoni rolls w/peaches for dessert.
11:30PM Left for home and called Millie when I got home.

March 5, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
1:00PM Up and about. Slept very well last night after I finally got to sleep. I last looked at my clock at 4:07AM and the next thing I knew it was 11AM and got up and went to the bathroom and then back to bed and went right to sleep. Not tired, just have rested better than usual.
1:30PM Fixed some instant oatmeal and had two bagels w/coffee. Eric called and wanted me to take a look at youtube and see how he is building his porch. I told him he should be OK because he watched me build two decks.
5:15PM Walt called, he is having his hip operation tomorrow morning.
I hope everything goes well for him.

1:00PM Arrived at the Urology appointment and gave them a sample of my urin.
2:00PM Stopped by I Hop to have some lunch. Had an omelet and hash browns w/cup of coffee. While having lunch a realtor from Florida called about a double wide in Silver Springs, FL I think that is to much of a fixer/upper but the broker is supposted to call me back around 5-6 tonight to answer some questions for me. The realtor didn't know the answers.
3:00PM Picked up rent from Dale and then went to pick up rent from Nelson. I don't know what is going on because Nelson and Dale are at each other's throat. Nelson had the storm door latched with a hook latch and I could not knock on door so I banged on the storm door and Nelson did not answer the door so I had to call him on the phone to come to the door. I told him I had been knocking and he must have not heard me and he said he would hook the door anyway he wanted. Dale had complained to me that Nelson would lock the storm door which does not have a lock and he would have to bang on the door to be let in. Sounds like a couple female bitches.
3:30PM Put $560.00 in Eric's account at the bank.
7:00PM Called Barb and talked for a while, she had gone to foot doctor and then to Kroger's her neighbor went with her.

12:00PM Dropped off Bella at Eastern Pet to get trimmed. The women was very upset because she said she was ill and the girl was not to make appointments for her but she agreed to take Bella because I was already there.
1:45PM Eastern Pet called and said Bella was ready to be picked up. Went to get her. It cost me $58.00 to get her trimmed and I assume they bathed her.
7:00PM Talked to Barb.
8:00PM Talked to Millie

1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
9:30AM Up and about. Had a banana, tangerine for breakfast.
1:30PM Matt Wolfong just came by to check to see what I want done.
He said it would be around $250 to take out bushes but for another $100 he would remove the vine and clean up around the house and transplant the pine tree to the center of the yard. 2:00PM Matt just brought another man here and he is starting on the bushes. They will remove and stack up on the upper side of the house and do it as men become available. Told him to take all the time he needs and I won't worry about being in a hurry to get things done.
5:30PM I had corresponded with a distant cousin from WA related through the Miller family several years ago and I received an email a few days ago giving me his telephone number so decided to give him a call. Talked to his wife and he was still at work so she told me that he would call me back this evening.
7:00PM Talked to Barb, Wendy and Jeff left to go to Wheeling to do some gambling before returning to Columbus.
7:30PM Called and talked to Millie a few minutes. I think we will go out for dinner again on Saturday.
9:30PM Randy just returned my earlier call. We had a very good talk and discussed family history and genealogy for over an hour. It was a great conversation. Really looking forward to doing some research with him.

March 10, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
11:00AM Up and about, let Bella outside, snowing with little round balls of snow.
1:00PM Troy just came in, he was sent home from work because he would not turn off music he was listening to at work. He thinks he is right and does not have to follow the rules (in writing) in the kitchen at work. I don't know if Troy will ever learn that he needs a job regardless if he likes the rules or not. I am probably a lot of the problem because I just don't kick him out and let him find out how the rest of the world lives. When he came in he was, what I would call, giddy. He was happy his General Manger (boss) told him to clock out and go home. If someone told me to clock out and leave because I broke a rule, I would consider myself "fired". Troy just doesn't seem to even grasp it. He has had it to good all of his life, and I will have to blame myself for a lot of this entitlement because I didn't make him take care of himself when his mother died.
1:30PM Haven't had anything to eat so far today. Will have to go to the kitchen and see what I can fix. I am just not a breakfast person. Something fast and easy.
7:00PM Called Barb, we talked for a few minutes and Dana called her.
7:30PM Called Millie. Of course, I told her what Troy did. She just listens and lets me blow off a little steam. She is a very good listener.
8:00PM Fixed myself a salad and had some baked beans with onions. Will probably have some fruit around 10 or so.

March 11, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
12:00PM Up and about, temperature very cold, 23 degrees. Let Bella out because the sun is shinning.
1:00PM Bella back in the house. Fixed myself some bacon w/cup of coffee.
5:00PM Going to Millie's, picked up Chinese to take with me.
7:00PM Finished dinner.
7:30PM Barb called and we talked for a while. Wendy and Jeff went back to Columbus but Jeff can't get a flight out until tomorrow because he flies standby because he is an employee.

March 12, 2017
12:15AM Arrived home, cold out but very nice night, clean and no wind.
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
2:00AM Time change to Daylight Saving Time.
12:00PM Up and about, will go around during the day and get all the clocks changed.
1:00PM Had some oatmeal for lunch, relaxing and having a cup of coffee. Maybe I will fix myself a espresso, I need the caffeine. 1:30PM Millie called, she saw on her phone that I had called and she was returning my call. I believe it was the call from last night and her phone doesn't put the time on the call so she doesn't know when I called.
7;00PM Called Barb. She said Jeff finally got out of Columbus and got back to Miami today. That is what happens when you fly free on standby.
9:00PM Nothing going on tonight, watching Jurassic Park on TV.

March 13, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed. Can sleep as long as I please, don't have to get up for anything tomorrow. It is going to be cold so I am not going to go anywhere.
12:00PM Up and about. Not having any breakfast.
2:00PM Going to the bank. Changed my savings account so I have to have less than $2500.00 in the account before I have to pay a penalty. I can still can transfer money back and forth with my checking account. Still get free checks and a safety deposit box. There is nothing in my safety deposit box but I will keep it just in case I need it.
5:00PM Troy and Tyler both off to Andy Hess's birthday party at the Hess cabin in Upshur County. Looks like it will be a smoking drunk night. I hope they don't try to go out when it snows tonight.
7:00PM Called Barb. Nothing new with Barb.

March 14, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
12:00PM Up and about. Only about 1/2 inch of snow this morning. Getting very cold. In the teens.
1:00PM Fixed myself some lunch.
7:00PM Talked to Barb. Nothing much going on today so I am going to try to write a Feature Story for the WVHCGS Web Site.
9:00PM Decided to write a story about Asa S. Hugill, the builder of the Simpson Creek covered bridge.
10:00PM Ju
st realized I did not call Millie today and she did not call me. Busy writing the story and just didn't think about the time.

March 15, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed. Note: I very seldom get to bed at 1AM, by the time if finally get around to getting into the bed
it may be 2, 3, or even 4AM, always find something else to do. 7;30AM Up and about, checked to see how cold it is outside, 14 degrees so didn't make Bella go out this morning.
8:00AM Back to bed, nothing to stay up for.
12:00PM Back up, had some pineapple for lunch, cold outside, 26 degrees.
2.30PM Kit called, Walt is getting along very well and it is cold in FL, she said it was only 57 degrees, that's cold for her part of FL.
5:00PM Gave Eric a call and talked for a while, just wanted to remind him that it is his mother's birthday tomorrow. Just saving him some grief if he doesn't at least get her a card. Lots of experience in that area.
5:30PM Got the Feature Story finished for the WVHCGS Web Site and it is uploaded to the site. Also sent a notice on HCGS@rootsweb.com and also on the Genealogical Society FB.
5:40PM Troy just came in and I had one letter in the mail. Opened up the envelop and it was DHHR telling me I was delinquent on my spousal support. I tried calling DHHR but they close at 5PM. I will call them tomorrow and if I have to go into their office they are going to find out what hell is really like. Those bastards don't know their ass from a hole in the ground. I have been putting up with them for 3 1/2 years and now they have screwed up again. They took the money out of my SS and I talked to Eric and his mother has not received it yet. I have had my SS since March 3rd nearly two weeks ago and they took the $300 out of it so why can't they just do their job. I figure they are all a bunch of liberal idiots that have worked in the same job for ever.
6:30PM Called Millie, talked until 7:15 and then called Barb. We talked for a while, told her that Kit had called and that I had talked to Eric.

March 16, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
11:45AM Received a call from a man that wanted to see the dinning room table and chairs. He and his wife came by and looked. No Idea if they will buy or not, he wants his daughter to come by because he is getting the table and chairs for his daughter.
1:45PM Called DHHR and talked to a young man named Eric. I told him why I was calling and he said he would check and call me back.
3:00PM Eric from DHHR called and of course the problem was not their mistake. The check I was directed to not cash in February and return to DHHR 153 W, Pike St according to Eric was the USPS fault. It did not get to Charleston. I can't understand because the check was made out by the Clarksburg DHHR office and sent to me and I sent it back with out cashing it so the money never came out of the DHHR bank account.
My EX never received it and DHHR just sent me a notice I was delinquent in payments even thought they had the money all along. What is new for the idiots at the DHHR. They will send me a statement each month telling me the status of the account costing them $.39 each time. Just another was of spending tax payers money.
5:40PM Millie called and wanted to know if I was coming down this evening. I told her I may be going to the SJARA Club meeting
6:00PM Troy went out and cleaned the paint from the storm windows in the front of the house so I can get the storm windows open. Now all I have to do is start cleaning the windows.
7:00PM Talked to Barb. Decided to not go to the SJARA Club meeting. It is cold out and I don't feel like sitting and listening to them argue about things that Dick brings up. I can not understand Dick Fowler, N8FMD. A few months ago he got into an argument at the CWVWA meeting because the club was not following the Roberts Rules of Order and he insisted that they follow the rules. I think he has changed his wanting to follow the Roberts Rules of Order when I used them against him to block him from running rough shod of the CWVWA meeting. At the last SJARA meeting he said the Roberts Rules of Order were dumb and the SJARA Club should not follow the rules and he would not recognize the Roberts Rules of Order at any of the meetings. His wife has to go everywhere with him now just to remind him of things when he gets confused and forgets and to keep him quite when he starts yelling at everyone, especially, Doug Cutlip, KC8AJH. Another reason I didn't go to the SJARA Club meeting is since Doug took over the Web Site it is never up to date. It is always at least a week behind. Several of the links don't work or have completely disappeared. I suppose I should just keep my mouth shut, the Web Site is not my responsibility anymore. He has even gotten the net result on the site since March 7th. 8:30PM Walt called and we talked for a few minutes. He seems to be getting along very well. He is going through PT and is walking with a cane.
11:00PM Tyler just came through and said h would see me tomorrow, he was going to a friend's overnight. I asked him about work and said that he was not on the schedule to work and essentially was not working for Cody's any more. Now that is great, I have two grandsons living with me an neither have a job. Troy's girl friend is here again.

March 17, 2017
12:00PM Up and about, Had a glass of milk and let Bella out for a while. Temperature is 41 degrees and overcast.
2:00PM Troy and his girl friend just came through on their way to the garage. Looks like she has just moved in. At least, she is working, she appears to come after she gets off work and stays until she goes to work the next day. Great situation, it as though what I think does not matter at all and it is like I am just here to furnish a place for them to play and eat.
2:30PM Tyler just came home and said he is putting his banjo on ebay for sell. He needs money since he isn't working. Looks like him paying me for his loan is down the drain, He will have to get some money from somewhere to pay his auto insurance q and buy gas.
2:45PM They are all in garage and smells like they are smoking again, your guess is as good as mine as to what they are smoking. 4:15PM Millie called and wanted to know if I was coming down today. I didn't want to go because of the snow. Didn't know what was going to happen by this evening.
7:00PM Called Barb, talked for a while. Told Barb I had gotten an email for American Pickers in regarding my email about them being here in May to do a program. I had contacted them about a year ago asking if and when they were coming to West Virginia again. I hope this pans out. Would like to see them come, maybe they can find something at Barbs.
8:00PM Talked to Eric and he said he would call me back.
11:30PM Tyler came in, Eric had called him because my phone would not ring. Tried to call Eric and all I got was that nothing was working and call again later. Must be something wrong with Sprint cell system.

March 18, 2017
00:30AM A notice popped up that Eric was trying to video contact me on FB so went to Chrome because IE does not support video FB and talked to Eric on video. Worked pretty good. 1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
1:00PM Up and about, did not have anything to eat.
3:00PM I jumped the boys, wanting to know where my hand towels are. Since I folded them up on top of the dryer I have not been able to find. Am I crazy and just missed placed them or what, I can't find them. Also asked where the mop was. I can't find it either.
4:00PM Left for Millie's, the boys think it a big joke, me going to see a female. They laugh behind my back all the time and make jokes about grandpa's girl friend. Stopped at Burger King and got some chicken fries and a cup of coffee.
5:00PM Millie and I had sloppy joes, mashed potatoes and peach upside down cake. Great meal.
7:00PM Called Barb and talked for a while. Millie was on the phone with her niece.

March 19, 2017
00:10AM Left for home.
00:25AM Arrived home, called Millie to let her know I was home. There are two cars parked in front of my house. One is parked about a foot from my driveway and I had to swing across the street just to get into my own drive way. This normally the rule and happens quite often. Came in the house and there was no one here. Went to the garage and the lights were on in the garage and the utility room and the outside door in the utility room was unlocked.
12:50AM I locked all the doors, and Tyler came and knocked on the front door and I let him in. He wanted to know why I locked him and his friends out. He feels that he was just going to be gone a short time so why lock the doors. His remark was, "Was there anything missing". He just does not understand why you lock doors when you are gone from the house. Another thing, I can't understand. We go through paper towels like crap through a goose. I have no idea what they are using all the paper towels in the garage. I know they think I don't know what goes on in the garage. The parents of any of the boys that come here would not allow the boys to gather in their house. Grandpa is just to easy. Neither of them have jobs now and they wonder why I am concerned. I am just going to have to sell this house and move into a 1 room apartment somewhere. I worked all my life to have what I have and no one cares what I say or do as long as they get everything they want and I don't interfere with their life. They don't clean the garage, they don't clean the kitchen, they don't clean the bathroom, they don't clean their rooms, they both just want to play with their friends, and Troy just wants to shack up the bitch he dragged in here about a week ago. That is exactly what she is, any girl that would go to the boyfriend's grand parent's and sleep with him is a little slut is really just a bitch.
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
2:00PM Woke up several times during the day but decided not to get out of bed. It is an overcast day and I just don't feel like getting out of bed. I know today will be no better or worse than any other day but it will pass just like any other day.
4:30PM Fixed myself some Mexican packaged pasta dish and added kidney beans to it. It was pretty good.
5:30PM Called Millie and talked to her. I told her about getting into it with Tyler last night and that I had told Troy that the girl had to go home. I did not want another boarder to pick up after.
7:00PM Called Barb, she said that the only time she went out today was to go get the newspaper.
11:00PM Watched TV most of the day and did some online research.

March 20, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed after I finish watching the movie, "The Way West" The bitch is here again tonight, I told Troy today and I won't say anything until tomorrow night and if he doesn't I will tell her to go home.
2:30AM The movie is over so going to bed.
12:00PM Up and about, getting ready to go to the doctor.
3:00PM Arrived at the doctor. Sitting and waiting.
4:20PM Finally got into the doctor's office and the PA came in to talk to me. He said that the earlier urine sample had some blood in it but last weeks sample was clear. He talked about just watching my urine and if some blood shows up he may recommend going into my bladder and taking a look. He also said that they did not find any cancer cells, so that looks good.
4:30PM Went to I Hop to have something to eat. Had a steak omelet and had a side order of pancakes. Taking the pancakes with strawberry syrup on them home so can have them latter.
5:45PM Got to Clarksburg to pick up Eric's rent from Dale. It was to late to make it to the bank today, will go tomorrow.
6:00PM Called Millie and talked for a while. She said she had company today, I thing it was a couple nephews.
7:10PM Barb called, talked for a while and was talking to her about looking at the Harrison County records on the web and looking at some Roger's deeds.
8:00PM Watching President Trump and his rally and speech.
9:00PM Watching TV.

March 21, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
5:30AM Woke up and heard Troy and his girl friend go to bed. I had told him before I went to bed that she was not to stay over anymore and he apologized that he had not taken care of it, three different times, and it looks like he has just ignored me again. Went to bath room and went back to bed.
7:30AM Woke up and looked outside and her car was still here.
11:00AM Got up and looked outside and her car was still here.
11:45AM Opened up Troy's bedroom door and told her and him for her to get her ass in gear and leave my house and not to return. Told her I had given them several warnings over the last week and their reaction to me was "fuck you" We will do what we want for as long as we want. I made sure she got her things together and left. I hope I never see her again, and that will be to soon. I don't believe I over reacted, I had told Troy several times that she was to not sleep over and since he chose to ignore me, I don't even want her in my house. Only a slut would go to someone's house and shack up and think they had the right to do so.
2:00PM Getting ready to go to the bank to make a deposit for Eric and to deposit the $157.43 check from the Genealogical Society for the web site. Dale called and Eva wants to drop by and give me Seth's graduation picture.
3:00PM Eva came by with the picture and I gave her a $50 check for Seth. She said Seth was working at Winn Dixie about 4 days a week from 5 to 10PM. She says it is rough for him because he has to get up at 6:30 in the morning to go to school but he is doing OK and making good grades. I told her, it was great two out of 5 graduating. Joshua and Tyler did get their GED.
4:00PM Back from the bank, picked up a hamburger and a drink from McDonald's.
5:00PM Troy has gotten a little get up and go. He is cleaning the bathroom and the kitchen.
6:00PM Checked the cleaning job, well, it is better than nothing.
7:00PM Called Barb, told her about what went on this morning and of course, Troy must have over heard me and starting to yell and rave about what I did was being a real ass hole. I told him I was on the phone and be quite, of course, he figured I was on the phone with Millie so he went on for a while, about me running both of them out of the house and they are going to Fairmont and would be back. He yelled that I was running off the only two people and last people in the world that care about me. If this is caring for someone, you have me confused. What would be like if they both hated me. I told him to make sure the door didn't hit him in the ass and to make sure he takes everything with him when he goes. I figure they will both be here most of the summer, they won't hurry, they never had it so easy. No rent, no buying of food, No responsibility except run around or set up most of the night smoking pot and then sleeping most of the day as far as Troy is concerned and Tyler is gone all day since I paid for a car for him. I figure it will be like pulling teeth to get the rest of the money out of Tyler when things get tough since he isn't working.
7:30PM Troy and Tyler think that I will be lost and lonely when they are gone. Of course, I will miss them but they are usually out in the garage or in bed or gone somewhere. The only time I know they are here is when they walk up or down the hall and I see them go by the door between the hall and the living room. Being alone and being lonely are two different things. I have more to do than I have time. I can always putter at things to keep myself busy. I didn't miss JO when she left so why do they think I will miss them when they are gone.
8:30PM Called Eric to tell him his money has been deposited in his account.
9:30PM Called Millie, told her about Troy and his raving about what I had done to him. She wants me to come earlier tomorrow so we can go to Sunset for spaghetti.
11:00PM Tyler did come in and tell me good night. The first time today that he has said much to me. He said hello earlier today as he was going out the back door and I was on the deck.

March 22, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed
5:00AM Up to go to the bathroom and looked at the temperature on my cell phone and it says 51 degrees. Back to bed.
11:00AM Back up and looked at the temperature and my cell said 33 degrees. I wonder if I read it correctly at 5AM.
4:00PM Going to pick Millie for dinner.
5:30PM At Sunset eating spaghetti, garlic bread and had cherry pie w/ice cream for dessert.
11:30PM Back home, talked to K8QVC, AD8T, and WV8CC on my way home.
11:45PM Went on FB and saw where Troy had put a bunch of size 8-12 clothes including nurse scrubs. Wonder where he got all of this. He put them on the coffee table in the living room to take the pictures. He must need money but why size 8-12 and nurse scrubs. Are these from his mother that he has been holding onto all of these years, or are they from some one else such as his new girlfriend. I think that most of what his mother had would be in the area of size 18.

March 23, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
10:00AM Here Matt's boys are here working. Looks like they are wrapping things up. They are doing a good job. Now the problem is writing the check.
12:00PM Beautiful day out, lots of sunshine, Temperature 56 degrees,
I think the workers are at lunch. No one around. Also looks like they mowed the grass and the lawn looks good. They also put down some straw, I assume they planted grass seed in the areas that is covered with straw.
5:00PM Fixed a pork roast with carrots, potatoes, onions. Came our very well, had some and left the rest for Tyler and Troy. 7:00PM Called Barb. Not much going on today.
8:40PM Millie Called and we talked for an hour. Talked about everyone and everything. She went to Garden Club today and, of course, I was being talked about at the garden club.
9:00PM I will have to go to the store tomorrow, I am out of just about everything. No fruit, canned or fresh. No snacks or anything to drink other than water, coffee, and tea. Fixed myself a big pot of tea, regular with some strawberry tea, tastes very good.

March 24, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
11:00AM Up and about, having some oatmeal to eat.
1:00PM Both Tyler and Troy are up. Since they are both here most of the time, they don't have a job. I just seem to get through to either of these boys. They are just sitting and watching the world pass them by.
2:30PM Beautiful day, temperature on the deck is 77 degrees. I think that is a little high. Will check it a little later when the sun isn't hitting the bricks on the rear of the house.
6:00PM Called and ordered a pizza and bread sticks for supper.
7:00PM Called Barb and talked for a while.
9:00PM Called Millie, talked for a while. Troy has brought that bitch back in the house. The only thing I will have to throw him out since he is just telling me to get "fucked" He is going to do things his way or no way so the only thing I can do is kick him out and not look back.

March 25, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
2:00:AM The bitch is still here so I am going to have to put my foot down tomorrow. No need to get upset tonight. She probably will be here when I get up in the morning.
11:00AM Up and about, looks like the bitch is gone, her car isn't here. Let Bella out side, temperature 77 degrees and overcast.
12:00PM Went to the utility room to get clothes out of the dryer. Some boy was sleeping in the garage. I just can't seem to get through to either of the boys. I am just going to have to get them both out of my house.
3:00PM Went to the utility room to take a shower. When I went into the utility room saw the glass was broken in the back storm door. I asked how that happened and I was to told it had been that way for a while and it must have been the wind. Strange, I was in the utility room yesterday and the back door was open and the glass was not broken at that time. Came out of the utility room and said to the boys, since the door was damaged by an act of God then they better start praying to see if God would remove the frame from the door and have a new glass put into the old frame. I won't hold my breath. The boys will just ignore the broken door. When I left the house to go to Millie's two boys were getting into Tyler's car and leaving.
4:00PM Went to China One and picked up shrimp fried rice, egg rolls, and won tons, and took it to Millie's
6:00PM Watched the news and ate supper.
7:00PM Called Barb.
8:00PM Watching the movies.

March 26, 2017
00:00AM Finished the movie, Dracula, and left for home.
00:30AM Called Millie and told her I was home.
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.

11:00AM Up and about.
12:30PM The bitch is here. She and Troy are sitting on the deck. Let Bella outside. It is 73 degrees. Looks like Troy is going to just flaunt her in my face until I blow my top again. I am going to keep it to myself and give him a date to move out. I think 30 days is more than enough time for him to get everything that belongs to him out of the house and be gone. I don't know who is roaming around my house at any time so I have started locking my bedroom to keep everyone out of there. I will place anything of value to me in my room. It is terrible that you have to lock your own room in your own house because you don't know who is in your house day and night.
1:00PM Talked to Tyler about the broken glass in the door, Patrick was here. Told Tyler I didn't believe the story I was told about the broken glass but it didn't make any difference. All I want is the broken glass removed and take the frame and have the glass replaced by the end of the week. We will see if it does me any good.
4:00PM Eat the rest of the shrimp fried rice from last night. Seems I am getting the silent treatment from both boys. They only say something to me when they can not ignore me.
5:00PM Went shopping at Shop & Save and got some groceries. $65.00
6:00PM Watched ABC evening News, sports on CBS and NBC.
7:30PM Called Barb.
9:00PM Been given the silent treatment all even, both the boys have passed by the living room going to the bathroom or their rooms but they don't even look my way or say anything.

March 27,2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
9:00AM Up and about, tried to put Bella out side but it is damp from rains last night and she refused to go outside. Back to bed and Bella is sleeping at my feet.
12:30PM Back up. The bitch is still here, seems Troy isn't even pretending to comply with my wishes so have no choice but to evict him. It hurts me to do this but I know of no other way to get through to him. It is also going to be hell until he is gone.
3:00PM Troy and the bitch just walk around the house like they don't have a care in the world. I told her and him I did not want her staying here day and night and they are just ignoring me.
3:45PM Got a call from City of Bridgeport and said that the council meeting is at 7pm and if I want to speak to city council all I have to do is show up 15mins early and sign in and I can speak to city council.
6:45PM Signed in and waited to speak.
7:00PM City Council came to order and they went through the normal business.
8:00PM I spoke to city council about the abandoned house next door and the council questioned Randy Spellman about what had been done to take care of this matter and Randy said they had been in contact with Tim Callison and they hope to have the problem taken care of by May. I sure hope so.
9:00PM Council meeting is over so stopped by the Dairy Queen and picked up a Blizzard.
9:15PM Called Betty Moran and gave her a report.
9:20PM Gave Troy his eviction notice, he is visibly upset with me but didn't say anything more to me.
10:30PM Millie called and we talked until 11pm when the news came on channel 5.
11:00PM Watched the channel 5 TV but they did not catch me on TV.
11:15PM She just tried to sneak the bitch by me, but I am not going to say a thing to him. I just want things calm for the next month and hope he doesn't say anything else, just finds a place and moves.

March 28, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
11:00AM Up and about. Overcast temperature 65 degrees. Tried to put Bella out but she just won't go if it is wet outside. She isn't a dumb dog.
12:00PM Had some oats for lunch. Fixing a roast to put in the oven.
1:00PM Put the roast w/potatoes, onions, and carrots in the oven for 1hr 30mins. Will check then to see how well it is cooked.
3:00PM The roast if finished. Will let it cool before I have some.
2:40PM Eric texted and said he would call later.
4:00PM Told Tyler and Troy that there is a roast and some vegetables on the stove. I had some for myself. Taste very good. Troy just walked through on his way to the garage and said he had a job. Have my doubts as to what kind of a job he got. I hope he gets along with the new job. At least, I won't have to listen to what kind of ass holes he has to work for and with.
5:00PM Watching evening news on TV 5, then TV 12.
7:00PM Called Barb, while talking to Barb, Eric called twice. Will call him back when I am finished talking to Barb.
7:20PM Called Eric three times before the call went through. He said he was in his car and has poor cell service. We talked for a while.
7:30PM Called Millie....We are going to Sunset for spaghetti night tomorrow night.
8:00PM Watching TV. Asked Troy where he got a job and he said Friday's. He didn't say when he starts to work.
9:00PM There was leftovers from the roast and vegetables so put them in the refrigerator.

March 29, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
12:00PM Slept in today. I just don't feel like doing anything. I don't have the energy to clean and straighten up things. Seems like I have to pay for everything to get done. Troy and Tyler do as little as possible and just would just like to see me just go away and let them alone. Tyler doesn't seem to be looking for a job. Of course, he owes me a payment on his loan and don't know what is going to do. Troy is another thing, all he wants to do is lay around the house with this bitch he brought home with him. I just can't understand, what kind of a girl is this, all she wants to do is lay around in bed. I threw her out and Troy just ignored me and brought her back in the house and shacking up. I gave Troy the eviction notice for April 30th but I figure he will do nothing from now to then and won't be out. Then there will be another fight about leaving. Let Bella out, temperature 57 degrees and overcast. Had a glass of milk and a banana to eat.
5:00PM Took shower and heading to Millie's for Spaghetti night at Sunset.
6:55PM Called Barb. 7:00PM Went to Sunset and they were closed, a sign read no waiters, so don't know why they are closed.
8:00PM Went to Bob Evan's for dinner. I had steak with Broccoli w/cheese and cold slaw. I had lemon pie for dessert. Millie had Turkey with dressing and chocolate sundae for dessert.

March 30, 2017
1:00AM Arrived home, called Millie. Meds, injection, going to bed after I watch Hannity on FOX TV.
1:00PM Up and about, tried to put Bella out but it has been raining and is very wet and she refused to go out. Hope the sun comes out so it will dry up a little and she will go out.
4:00PM Fixed the remainder of the beef and vegetables from Tuesday evening meal.
7:00PM Called Vic about Larry White WV8FKG calling last night and wanting to contact someone to give him his extra class test at his home so he would not have to go to a test session. He says he is extremely disabled and can't travel well. I then emailed Larry's information to Vic and to Doug so they could contact Larry. I can't help him in any way.
7:30PM Barb called just after I hung up from talking to Vic. Not much going on today with either of us.

March 31, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
12:00PM Up and about. Getting ready to go to my eye appointments at VA Hospital
2:00PM Arrived at VA for eye clinic examinations. Very heavy rain. Temperature around 55 degrees.
4:00PM Eye appointments went well, Dr. Alex said that my eyes have not changed much. I did need new glasses since I am having trouble seeing small print on the TV set. OK for reading and working on computer up close. It is my distant vision and my stigmatism.
5:00PM Going to Ryan's for dinner. Good dinner.
6:00PM Back home and watching local news.
7:00PM Called Barb.
9:00PM Called Millie, talked for an hour.
10:15PM Eric called and we talked for a while. While we were talking Eric realized he left his water on watering his yard. He rushed out and turned it off. He said he had taken his mother to Wildwood to visit Imy and Eugene. Also said it was extremely hot today.

April 1, 2017
1:00AM April fool day, Meds, injection, going to bed after I watch Hannity at 1AM.
11:00AM Up and about. Heard the bitch get up and go to her car and leave. I assume she must be going to work. She will probably be back tonight after she comes from work. I won't be able to do it today but on Monday I am going to check with the police and if they can't help me I suppose I will have to go to the magistrate to see what the magistrate can do for me to get her out of my house.
12:00PM Fixed myself some bacon and an omelet.
1:00PM Decided to confront Troy about his girl friend coming and staying in the house. When I said to him that I had expressed to him several times that I did not want her in the house. His remarks was, "she isn't here!". Of course, I knew that she had left. He said that she was not staying here. He thinks I don't know when she is here and acting like she lives here and that she will do as she pleases. He was extremely agitated. He called me a stupid old man and he would do what he pleased. When I informed him that will not come back or I will have to take lawful means to have her removed, He rushed up to me yelling and I was braced because I felt he may hit me. He came directly putting his face right up to mine and with his left forefinger punched me in the right shoulder. I think he realized he better not hit me even though he was very angry with me. I may have gotten hurt if he had hit me, but I would have probably hurt him much more in one way or the other. I don't think he wants to spend time in the north central regional jail to cool off. Of course, Tyler took his part, but that is to be expected since they are brothers. I told Tyler that I had nothing against him but he is wrong backing Troy. Troy is wrong and lives here at my pleasure. He is 24 years old and should have been out on his own long before this. The girl is just the last of many things that he feels he can do without any repercussions. I can remember Troy's father at this age and Troy appears to have the same type of personality. Troy, as far as I know, does not drink or is an alcoholic like his father. Brent never wanted to take any responsibility for anyone or himself. Troy has very volatile temper. He has not been violent except he hits and breaks things when he is angry. When he first threatened me he drove his fist into the refrigerator door I haven't looked to see if he did any damage, I know he rocked the refrigerator back and forth from the force.
3:20PM Returned Millie's call. She had called sometime while I was down in the bedroom. She said she didn't feel well and I shouldn't come down this evening.
3:30PM Looked out and noticed my truck on my car was opened. I have this problem from time to time, I must hit the button on my keys. When I went out to close the truck the bitch was backing out of the parking place behind Tyler's car. I think Troy was in the car.
4:00PM Troy came back in and when he passed the door into the hall from the living room he stopped and said "I'm sorry for what I said in the garage." All I said was "never mind" and that is the last I will say on it. If she comes back tomorrow, I will go to either the Bridgeport Police and or the magistrate to see what I can do about making her leave my house. She is just a squatter, but I can't get that through to Troy and I don't think I am getting through Tyler either.
6:45PM Cathy Keener, the realtor, called to let me know she had finished the comparison of the house and she came up with $159,900 for the house. I figure I should be able to get at least $150,000 or more, that would give me about $20,000 after the realtor is paid her 6%. I told her that I may put the house on the market in late May or first of June. Will have to see, when I get the boys out of the house and I can get rid of some furnisher and clean the house. I should have the outside done by that time.
7:00PM Talked to Barb.
7:15PM Going to the store to pick up a few things. $106.00.
10:40PM Millie called, she says she feels better and we talked for a while. Her telephone is messed up, The Internet man came yesterday and her telephone has been messed up since he left. She said she called and the telephone repairman will be back out either Monday or Tuesday.

April 2, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed after I finish watching Jurassic Park, the first one.
1:00PM Slept in today. I am going to have to start going to bed earlier and get up earlier since the weather is getting warmer and I will have to be doing more outside. The sun is shinning so maybe it will be a little warmer today.
2:00PM Haven't had anything to eat so far today except a banana. Temperature is 62 degrees, still not warm outside but Bella seems to be enjoying herself, she hasn't asked to come back in the house. Tyler spoke to me and said good afternoon. Troy has walked back and forth several times but he is not speaking to me. He will have to get over it. He thinks I had no right to kick his girl friend out of the house. I would not have mind if she had been reasonable about coming here and shacking up. She just moved in and was stay here all the time except when she was working. She would sleep in until work time and then returned directly after work go to bed and then sleep until work the next day. After doing this for a week I threw her out and she and Troy just ignored me and she moved back in and stayed night and day for another week and then that is when the shit hit the fan and I gave Troy notice to move out completely by April 30th.
4:00PM Went on FB and had three Happy Birthday wishes and couldn't figure out why. Looks like someone had posted that today was my birthday. Maybe I did it by accident but don't remember doing it. Must be loosing it.
6:00PM Millie called, her phone is working much better now.
8:30PM Called Barb, I had forgotten to call earlier. Nothing going on.
9;00PM Eric text me to pick up his rent tomorrow from Nelson and Dale.

April 3, 2017

9:00AM Have received several telephone calls and texts this morning. Have just ignored them and will listen and read them all later.
12:00PM Up and about. Received a call/text from Dale, his check did not post so will go tomorrow to get the rent. Got a call from a realtor in Brooksville about my inquiry into mobile homes in Brooksville. Sent her a test that I will contact her when I go to FL.
12:30PM Took the garbage out and got the tools and fixed the fence where Troy had pulled it apart. Tyler and his friend helped me do it.
1:00PM Fixed lunch, omelet w/onion and toast, and a large glass of water.
5:00PM Troy's girl friend (being kind today) came in and said she was just dropping by to pick up Troy's phone charger for him. Don't have any idea where he is. I told her OK and she went into Troy's room for a while and then came out and left.
6:00PM Troy just came in with the bitch with him. Went to his room and then back to the garage. Looks like he and she are going to just ignore me again. Will watch to see what happens at bed time. Bed time for them will probably be 5AM. I am just going to have to hold my temper because all it is doing is upsetting me. It is the 3rd, I don't know what kind of a fight it will be at the end of the month.
7:00PM Called and talked to Barb.
7:30PM Dave Morris called and wanted to know what I knew about JT65 and I told him I gave up on it because I don't like just sending signal reports and having to sit and be completely depended on the computer for communications.
8:30PM Called Millie and we talked for an hour. Told her I would probably be down on Wednesday. She said that the telephone main/internet man came back today and put a filter on her bedroom phone and got rid of all the noise on her phone. She also said that a census woman came by and wants her to participate in a census survey.

April 4, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
11:00AM Up and about, called Dale and Nelson, will pick up rent between 2 and 2:30PM.
12:00PM Talked to Tyler about letter from Insurance company about changing the ownership of his life insurance policy.
1:00PM Tyler let Troy take his car to work so Tyler went to pick up his car and two packages were delivered by UPS for Tyler.
1:30PM Betty Moran had called and said that a man came by and was taking pictures of the Callison house next door and put something on the front door. I stopped by the house and took a picture of the sign that was put on the front door:
2:00PM Went to Clarksburg and picked up rent from Nelson and Dale.
3:00PM Put Eric's money in the bank, and then stopped at Home Depot and picked up a 1600PSI electric spray washer. I hope it is strong enough to clean the deck and the brick and front of the house.
4:00PM Stopped by McDonald's and picked up a fish sandwich and a couple of burritos.
4:30PM Pat K8PEC called me and needs the telephone numbers of Bill Reid. Text the numbers to Pat.
5:00PM Called Huntington Bank to check why they returned my payment to Waste Management. Will have to call WM tomorrow, the bank did not know why they returned my payment.
7:00PM Called Barb.
9:00PM Received an email from Troy with a letter attached. I will call the letter is a "woe is me". He does not want to take responsibility for his actions. He wants to blame everyone else including his mother for her actions and her death. He is looking for excuses for his me, me, me, me attitude. I can not understand how he thinks bringing an young girl into my house to just move in as though this is her residence. I am an old divorced man with two young men living here and he thinks it is proper to just bring a young women in and everything would be perfect with no problems. Well, she appears to be gone, and I hope she stays away, I don't need another problem.

April 5, 2017

6:30PM Watching NBC news and eating hotdogs and some salad.
11:00PM Very sleepy tonight so coming home early.
11:30PM Arrived home and called Millie that I got home OK. I brought home Millie's laptop to check out.

April 6, 2017
1:00AM Finally figured out her computer password and connected to the Internet (wireless) and sent an email to myself.
2:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
1:00PM Woke up earlier, but it was raining and bad outside so let Bella out and decided to fix something to eat.
1:30PM Called Millie to let her know I got her laptop working.
2:00PM Temperature is now 55 degrees. Hope it warms up and is sunny by Saturday so I can get my yard mowed and might do something on the power washing of the brick in the front of the house.
4:00PM Started raining again, so it looks like it will be a couple days without rain before I can mow the lawn.
7:00PM Called Barb. We talked about the new show "The Son of Texas" which comes on AMC April 8th.
9:00PM Looks like the shit has hit the fan in Syria. Trump sent in 59 cruise missiles into Syria and he didn't call Putin and tell him first. As I have always said, Liberals reduce the military and cut them as much as possible, but the Conservatives use the military.
9:30PM Millie called and we talked for a short time.

April 7, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
9:20AM Received a call from 304 622 3632 asking for Tyler.
9:30AM Fixed some oats for breakfast. Have been having pains in my upper left chest. The pain is sharp and hit me ever 15 minutes or so but has been more frequent while sitting in my chair. Blood pressure and pulse 139/71 pulse 56. Sugar 173. Contemplating driving over to the ER.
11:00AM Had a cup of coffee and the discomfort has subsided. Will be aware the rest of the day and see if the discomfort returns. 2:00PM Did not receive a call from the women that I offered the table and chairs for $100.00. Looked to see if she sent me a message on FB and noticed I had given her the wrong cell number so sent her a correction and she came back she had found another table and chairs and is no longer interested. Sent a message to another interested party and told her I would take $100.00 if she was still interested.
2:30PM Tyler came in and is really pissed. Seems Troy took his car to work and didn't even talk to Tyler. Troy said he talked to Tyler and he said Tyler told him to take his car. He is just blowing smoke up Tyler's rump. I had talked to Tyler earlier and gave him a call from State Farm. Troy sneaked Tyler's keys and took Tyler's car.
5:00PM Troy home from work. I don't know what happened to all that anger of Tyler's after he got his car back home. Troy tried to tell me his girl friend was even here yesterday. He must think I am deaf, dumb, and blind. She as here last night and parked in front of the condemned house last night and her car was sitting there with snow on it this morning at 9:30AM when I was up. I figured she would take Troy to work but Troy ran through here with his coat on about 11:45AM and I assume that is when he stole Tyler's keys to his car.
6:00PM Fixed spaghetti w/sauce and chicken in the sauce. Told the boys by text that there was spaghetti in the kitchen.
7:00PM Talked to Barb.
8:30PM Called Millie, talked until 9:30PM.
8:45PM Iris called and it went to voicemail, she wants me to call her.
9:40PM Called Iris and left her a voice mail. She is probably in bed by now.
10:00PM Watching Blue Blood.

April 8, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
9:15AM Iris called and said Dave Parrish died. I know the name but I don't really know Dave Parrish. She said that he was cremated and she will be having a memorial service at a later date. Kept thinking, Dave Parrish is Billie Stiles' husband and they live in Florida.
9:45AM Decided to just get up and stay up. It is very sunny out but the temperature is only 38 degrees. Tyler is back from taking his ACT test in Fairmont.
12:00PM Fixed myself fried squash, a omelet, w/coffee.
5:00PM Getting ready to go to Millie's.
7:00PM At Sunset for supper, we both had liver and onions w/mashed potatoes. I had tea and Millie had coffee.
8:00PM Went by McDonald's and had an ice cream cone. Great meal. 11:00PM Worked on Millie's laptop all evening updating all of Apps. Downloaded CCleaner also fixed it so she can navigate easier. Her Internet speed is only 1.9 MB but I thing she will be ok. She just wants to surf the web, email, and watch Netflex. Tried to set up NetFlex but it said her App was outdated so left the computer on downloading all of the updated Apps. Should be done overnight.

April 9, 2017
12:00AM Arrived home and called Millie to let her know I got home OK.
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
11:00AM Troy called and needs a ride home from work. He was waiting at "Fridays". He goes back to work on Tuesday.
11:15AM Troy said he was going to mow the lawn. I won't hold my breath.
12:00PM Troy went to bed. I PM Linda telling her that we have found three tools that Matt's team left here, a small hand knife, a wooden handled hoe/spad, and a set of hedge clippers.
4:00PM Troy still in bed, temperature outside is 72 degrees with lots of sunshine.
5:00PM Troy is mowing the grass. Going to Rite Aide.
5:30PM Back from Rite Aide, picked up some arthritis pain pills. I normally don't take pain pills but the knees are just getting very bad and I have trouble getting up because of the pain. Also picked up some Blue-Emu to see if it will help the pain in my knees and hands. I think if I can relieve some of the pain I will be able to get some more done around the house.
6:00PM Ate the remainder of the spaghetti for supper. 7:30PM Barb called and we talked for a few minutes. Barb seems to be slowing up quite a bit. I can hear it in her voice. She is just tired, and I think she is a little depressed. There isn't much I can do about it. I have the same problems as she has, no one really cares in our families as long as it isn't what they want.
8:30PM Called Millie and we talked for a short time. She said she is still tired. Looks like we are all getting old and tired most of the time. She says she is going to go to the doctor tomorrow and have him look at her toe. It doesn't look good to me.
9:00PM Troy has his girl friend here in the house. I don't want to get into it with him. I hope she goes home tonight. Also Tyler is back from Deep Creek.

April 10 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
8:30AM Up to go to the bathroom and looked out and the bitch's car is still here. Troy keeps trying to blow smoke up my rump saying she leaves late at night. I took a picture to prove she is here in the morning.
9:00PM Put Bella out, it is nice and warm 75degrees. Back to bed. 11:00AM Back up. Had to wait to get to my own bathroom, the bitch was in my bathroom.
12:00PM Told Tyler I needed my drill so I can put some screws in the deck. When he brought me the drill the key was missing. What is new, every time someone used something of mine, it either gets broken or lost. If not all of it disappearing something to use it goes missing and then they both point the finger at the other.
3:00PM She just left. Getting things ready to power wash the front wall of the house. My back is killing me. Hope I can get the power washing done, at least, some of it.
4:00PM Did the brick, porch, steps, and walk with the power washer. It didn't do as good a job on the bricks that I wanted. Probably need a much more powerful power washer for the brick. It did a pretty good job on the front porch.
6:00PM Millie called and left a voice mail, said she had gone to the doctor today and he gave her something for her toe. Said she was going to take a nap.
7:40PM Called Barb and we talked for a short while.
8:00PM Troy went back out and got a new frame for the picture Tyler got in the mail today. They have everything scattered all over the dinning room table and Troy just walked off. They just can't understand about putting anything away. I am going to have to go somewhere and get me a new key for my drill. Someone used it and lost it. They needed a tape to mature the size of the picture and of course my tape mature in my tool box is missing. They just take what the want to use of mine and almost never put things away. I noticed last night that my soldering clips with magnifying glass is sitting on Tyler's desk in the garage. When things disappear they say they had nothing to do with it. I will really be glad when I am living by myself. It may be boring but it will sure be relaxing and I will know where everything is when I want it.
8:45PM Called Domino's and picked up a pizza and cheesy bread for supper.
10:08PM Millie called and we talked until 11PM. She said the doctor gave her an antibiotic for her toe. She had just woke up form her nap.

5:30PM Stopped at Long John Silvers for some fish. They forgot to give me my drink, so had to go inside to get it. When I got home found out that I had no fish, there were two pieces of chicken. If I would have wanted chicken I would have gone to KFC.
7:00PM Called Barb, Wendy is there, and she said they had heavy rain and wind. Nothing here at all, no rain and no wind. Lots of thunder and lightening in the north of here.

1:00PM Back up. Still sunny and warm out side. 74 degrees.
5:30PM Going to Millie's to pick her up to go to Outback for dinner. Had an Outback salad with steak. Very good but way to much for what you get. Service was a little lacking but the boy got through it OK but had to be prodded several times but I suppose he did his best so I gave him $5 tip on a $36 bill
7:00PM Went to McDonald's and had an ice cream cone. Back to Millie's
7:45PM Barb called, she and Wendy had gone to a movie today.
11:30PM Coming home, called Millie to let her know I go home.
11:50PM When I pulled in there were a truck and two cars parked at my house and on my lawn. They all left, scattered like rats from a sinking ship.

1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
12:00PM Up and about.
12:30PM Mike from the mission called that he was here to pick up the clothes of Jo's that I have stacked up in the shed.
4:00PM Called Millie to let her know that Jean Andrick had died on April 11th. No answer, left voice mail.
4:44PM Millie called back and I let her know about Jean, and read her the obituary. She is being cremated and arrangements are by Wright Funeral Home in Philippi.
5:00PM Called Yeasu in California and talked to the service department and the young lady told me she would have someone in the Service/Tech department to call me back. I joined a Yeasu group and the group feels that Yeasu should repair my radio at no charge, but it is out of warranty. The group feels that my radio was repaired in November of 2015 and that was before Yeasu knew what the fix was and all they did was replace my bad parts. We will find out if Yeasu calls me back.
6:00PM Fixed myself some supper, mixed backed potato diced mixed with onion, and corn and fried, then added an egg and continued cooking until done. It was really tasty. Also had a glass of iced tea.
7:00PM Fixed some brownies from a package. They didn't bake that well, never got solid, had some with a spoon, lol.
7:15PM Called Barb. Wendy went home today.

April 14, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
3:00PM Should be doing something but just don't feel like doing
1:00PM Let Bella out side, temperature is 68degrees. anything at all except just sitting here. The car needs vacuumed and the deck needs power washed but I just don't feel like starting to do either.
4:00PM Tyler just went out. Said that he would go to Work Force tomorrow. I reminded him, tomorrow is Saturday, so he said he would go on Monday. I won't hold my breath. He doesn't want to work. All he wants to do is hang with his fiends and smoke pot. I just can't think what will become of him and Troy. At least Troy is back to work and brags how much he makes in tips. I haven't seen any of it. Another week gone by and Tyler has not given me a car payment. Looks like I will never see what Troy or Tyler owe me. I hope I can make enough out of this house to get out from under. I have to get at least $130,000.00 to just break even. Looks like Jo is going to get what she wanted, make me sell the house without enough money to live on.
7:00PM Talked to Barb.
11:16PM Millie called, I told her I would be down on Sunday after she goes to church.

April 15, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
3:00AM Finished watching Netflix, Unthinkable.
3:00PM Let Bella outside. I am very discussed with just about everything today. I want to do things but just can't seem to find the energy or the desire to do anything. I just want to pack up my things and just walk out and leave everything, It just isn't worth worrying on who will do what and when they will do it. Troy just ignores everything I have told him and Tyler just wants to sit around smoke wed and play with his friends. Reality is going to slap them in the face and won't know what hit them.
4:00PM Watching Netflix. Watching a series called, Frontier.
7:00PM Called Barb and she is just about discussed as much as me. She has the same problems, everybody has their hand out wanting a handout.

12:00PM Up and about, let Bella outside sunny with temperatures in mid 70s.
12:30PM Looked out back and the bitch has her car parked in the condemned house next door driveway. I expected Troy would sneak her in since he doesn't work today. Looks like he is settling in and not planning on leaving by April 30th. I don't think Tyler is going to do anything about getting a job. As far as I know he has gone somewhere. His friends are on break now so he is running around to there places now.
6:30PM The women that said she was interested in the table and chairs said she would be here at 2PM, didn't show up and then FB message that she couldn't make it until after 5PM. Gave her my cell number and have heard nothing from her. What's new for people. Temperature is now 71 degrees. Asked Troy if anyone was going to cut the grass, got the same answer, Oh yea, I'm going to do it. Yea, won't hold my breath.

2:00PM Seems Troy is now working so he doesn't have time to mow the grass and Tyler can't mow because of his asthma. What's new. 3:00PM Decided to mow the grass myself. I hope it doesn't kill me.
5:00PM Tyler just came home, he is very upset that I mowed the grass. If he or Troy would have done it when it was needed mowed I would not have had to do it. Tyler mowed and trimmed the back yard.

7:15PM Talked to Barb on way to SJARA meeting.
7:30PM SJARA monthly meeting. Of course, Dick N8FMD had to start something about the insurance coverage for Field Day. He argued and fussed all during the meeting and then had to stay over after the meeting and was all over Doug KC8AJH about the certificate of insurance the WMCA wants before they will give us permission to have field day at Lowndes Hill. Dick was trying to argue that the YMCA might try to pin something on SJARA possibly leaving items in the grassy area of Lowndes Hill and someone getting hurt from something accidentally left at the Field Day Site. Dick just wants to argue about everything. He never says anything to me because he knows I will put him in his place. I don't think it will be to long before his wife will be looking for a home to put him in. He is really going down hill. If his mind doesn't go he will probably have a stroke or heart attack.
8:30PM Called Millie on my way home. Stopped at Walmart looking for a chuck key and they don't handle them. Then stopped at Lowe's and they told me that the tool department was being rearranged and they didn't know where I could find a chuck key.
9:00PM Arrived home and watching TV.

She has it listed now for $10,000 with HOA $358.00 which is the best of most. 2:30PM Received text back from Barbara and she said she is trying to get furniture.

I told him he could come down and stay with me because I have a room and he can stay over. Maybe he will run around with me when I look at the three places I want to look at.

Millie has an I fone that someone gave her and she wants me to stop by tomorrow when I come from Barbs and see if she can use my phone to call and get the I fone set up as her cell phone. I don't think it will work but I will go by and try. I charged the I fone but when I turn it on all it says there is no service and nothing else. She has a telephone number the person that gave her the phone gave her. Some bright person suggested to Millie that she should have me put her on my service and she could pay me for her service. That is how enemies are made and augments start.

3:00PM Cathy came by and put a key holder on the front porch and put the sign in the yard. She is coming back tomorrow to help clean up the house so she can show it at 7PM tomorrow evening.
7:00PM Callled Barb. Working to clean up the house mostly just picking up and cleaning things that are laying around. I don't think I will get much done. Also washing several loads of clothes. It looks like there is no end to the mess. It would be very strange if the peoson or persons that what to look at the house make a good offer and I would take it.

1:00PM Called Barb in Florida about the house and asked what the add meant that there were wall aicr condition. She told me that the heater worked in a central Air/heat but the A/C went out and she installed two windows A/Cs. She says they do a good job so I am not going to worry about the A/C until this fall and then have someone come in and check to see what is wrong with the A/C since the window A/Cs are doing the job.
3:00PM Called Cathy to see when the lookers are coming, she said earlier 5PM or possibly 7PM and she said she would be here around 3PM but no show for Cathy and no call.
4:00PM Took Troy to work. 5:00PM Watching local news and no call and no show by Cathy. This won't happen again. I will be going and coming as I wish and let her work around me. I will keep the house clean so she can show it anytime. I figure that there will be no serious lookers until after I remove the furniture.
6:30PM Cathy just came and she said that a realtor with cliants should be here around 7-7:30 to look at the house. I had gotten hotdogs for supper and Cathy had a couple while we wated.
7:30PM A young couple (looked abourt 40+ years old) came and went through the house taking a look at it. Don't know what they thought. Cathy said that the house was listed on Zillow.
9:00PM Took a look at Zillow and my house in Brigeport is just about the same as several houses in Bridgeport so the $159,900 looks like a resaonalble price.
9:30PM Millie called, I had called and she didn't answer so she called me back, she still hasn't set up voice mail yet.
10:30PM Tyler just came in. When I ask him about where they are going to move he gets upset with me. He said he is taking care of it but he wants Troy to go look at the two places they have talked about. I know Troy wants Tyler to take care of everything and then if he wants to back out he will feel no obligation to anyone else that is in the house with him.

May 8, 2017 Went to look at the motor home that belonged to Barbar Cutis but was not what she had given me the impression of how it was. Had lots of shotty work so I called a couple of realtors on my list and contacted Kim McDonald and she took me to see one at Meadowbrooke Mobile Homer park and I look at the one blonging to Don Jacques and the Motor Home was a single wide with an attached bedroom and bath with a very nice Florida Room and work shop. I really like it. Don wanted to sell it with all furnishing including dishes and averything else except his personal property. He said he was going back to Mass. and was only taking what he could fit in his car. He has a catilac coupe so he can't take much. He wants $12,000.00 so I made an offer of $11,000.00 and said he would think about it and let me know. Kim called later and said he would take my offer.

May 9, 2017 Went over to 37 Hill Street, Lakeland, FL and we made an agrement and I gave Kim a check for $12,571.90, this covered $11,000.00 (cost) $425 administration fee, Polk County Discretionary tax $50.00, Florida Tag & Title Recording Fees $400.00, State Shipping fee $11.40.

I am fed up with Troy, Tyler and I could get along but Troy is just in it for himself and I feel sorry for Tyler having to put up with hime because Troy is always screwing up in some way and blame someone else. It is never his fault.

I have warned them over and over about locking the back door to the utility room. I was here all the time and heard and saw nothing so the thief was very quite. I don't know where they will get money to move out so it will propably fall on me to come up with enough money to loan it to them.

3:00PM Cathy Burge here to show the house, she had 6 people with her and they walked around for 45 minutes discussing what they were looking at. She didn't say anything to me except good bye when she left. She is not representing me in anyway. I overheard her pointing out things that the buyer should ask to be repaired before they buy. I thought the brocker was supposed to be working for me, not pointing out things to whom seemed to be some sort of an inspector. She did not inform me who the other persons in the group were. I knew the Matheny couple that had previously looked at the house but I had no idea who the others were and Cathy Burge didn't even try to introduce them to me. About 20 minutes after their arrival some young girl in shorts just walked in the front door and just walked by me without saying anything. I had heard Cathy on the phone a little earlier giving someone directions to my house. When this is all over, whether I sell or not I am going to sit down and write a letter to West Virginia Realty Board of Ethics or what ever they call themselves.

I told I thought the the brocker was discussing with someone other than the possible buyers about things that are wrong with the house. The brocker has the buyer as a client and not me. The possible buyer is her neice so what is new. If and when this is all over I am writing to the state Realtor Assoc. about her behavior which I do not thing is ethical.
9:00PM Watching TV, didn't pack anymore boxes so will have to get busy tomorrow to get all of this packing finished. Have no idea where Tyler or Troy are.

May 25, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
10:00AM Up and about.
11:00AM Called Barb and asked if Dwayne was home and if she would like to have my generator. She said Dwayne and Dana were in Fairmont and she would call them to stop by and get the generator.
12:00PM Dana and Dwayne stopped by and the boys loaded the generator into Dwaynes SUV and Dana put all of the milk glass into a box and took it.
2:00PM Called Barb but no answer. She must have gone somewhere since I talked to her earlier.
4:00PM Talked to Barb, she said Dwayne was going to drain and clean the generator and place it in the garage just in case it is needed.
7:30PM At the church for the SJARA meeting and no one there with a key to get in. What's new, this never happened when I was an officer in the club. This club is stmbling and will soon fall on it's face if Dick (N8FMD) isn't rained in. I gave my key to the secretary and of course she gave it to Doug and I know by experiecne that Doug did not go to the church office and register that he was a key holder. I told Kayla that she should register with the church secretary but of course she gave the key to Doug and where is Doug, working somewhere in Ohio. The meeting was postponed from last week to this week because he couldn't make last weeks meeting. Af the meeting started they discussed Field Day, very poor organization. I reminded Kayla (secretary) of what she had to do for notification and letters to be written and I got the feeling that she oposed my suggestions. Then Dick (N8FMS) had to ignore Robert's orders and turn everything over to "the good of the order" and not follow any format in covering a subjext. He then brough up the proposal of coombinning the two clubs (SJARA and CWVWA) into one club. I had to tell him that it would never work and of course he didn't like my remark and I told him he knew why the other club was formed, strictly to get away form him. Now he is a member of CWVWA and had tried to weed out all that oppose him and he told me he had gotten rid of all that opposed him, all but one, and he would soon be gone. I didn't bring up the reason the two clubs will have a lot of trouble to merge. Number 1, they are both state corporations and would have to get permission from the state to merge, and then SJSAR is a 501(c) 3 orgainization and CWVWA is not so CWVWA could not merge with a 501(c)3. The only thing they could do is desolve CWVWA and all members then join SJARA. Another thing the CWVWA is broke and SJARA has over $1000.00 in their trasery and I don't think SJARA wants to accept the responsibility of paying for the CWVWA repeater. I am glad that I won't be here to see SJARA going down the drain again because of Dick Fowler N8FMD. He is just running both clubs into ground. Mentally all he wants to do is control and run things his way.

4:00PM Cathy (my realtor) came by with the offer and a contract for me to sell the house to Justin Matheny (husband of the neice of the broker -Cathy Burge-.

That would be $150,000.00 minus $3600.00 leaving $146,400.00 less the realtor 6% leaving me $137,400.00. Then take the amount I owe the bank whichis $119.730.00 for payoff and leaving me 17,600.00. The closing date is set for July 31, 2017. The inspection by a professional inspector must be within 10 days. Bank appraisal must be in 10 days. I figure someone will come up with something that needs repaired or replaced.

10:00PM Cathy called and came by giving a list of things that the buyer (Berger bitch) wants done before theu will take the house. The inspector listed some things that he feels were wrong but I didn't see anything that would cause the bank to not make the loan. He mentioned something about a unaproved fire resistent door leading to the garage. Have no idea what he is talking about. Of course, he made mention of the outlets not being grounded and not having GFI outlets in kitchen or bathroom. As far as I know the house meets all requirements when built and do not have to meet the present code. The bitch says that she wants the metal shed torn down and removed, and I had asked about that when they looked at the hosue the second time and she said it was not necessary to remove it so I did not. I old Cathy that I did not have time to make the changes they wanted since I am leaving on June 15th so if they wanted the house they would take it "AS IS" because I do not have the time and will not spend the money to have the changes made.

June 13, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
9:30AM Up and about.
1:00PM Going to U Hual to pick up a couple medium boxes and some more tape. When I inquired about the time to pick up the truck and trailer I was told I have to go to Fairmont to pick up the Truck and trailer. The man gave me a slip to pick it up in Fairmont and I will have Tyler or Troy pick it up on their way here on Thursday. If they can't do it I will have to drive to Fairmont and pick up the truck and trailer. Pisses me off that I reserved the truck 6 weeks ago and now they tell me I have to go to Fairmont to get it.
2:00PM Went to Clarksburg and picked up Eric's rent. Dale gave me $160.00 and I will use it to go the Florida and then give Eric a check whenI get there.
3:00PM Cathy called and she said that the bitch agreed that I would not have to tear down the shed but I could pay for the other things to be done. The bitch doesn't understand what "no" means and "AS IS" means. They will either take "AS IS" or there will be no deal. I just don't give a shit on what she wants. I have aready given $3600.00 in concessions and will give no more. The small things that need doing can be done by the husband unless he is just dumb and can't do them. They are getting the house at a bargain. They won't get a house in Bridgeport for less.
9:30PM Cathy called and said they had backed out because I would not fix what they wanted before they would buy the house. Looks like I am going to Florida without selling the house. If they would have been fair with me from the beginning and said exactly what had to be fixed I would have had the repairs made, but the hell with them.

1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.

2:00PM Matt came by and I gave him a copy of the inspector's report and he said he would come by next week and take a look at the house and give me an estimate on doing everything. He will give me a report to remove the shed and the shower on one sheet and another for the violations listed by the inspecter. I gave Matt keys for the dead bolt and the door knob lock so he can get iin the house.
3:00PM Text Cathy and let her know what I did and that Matt would not call her about the repairs but he would give me a report.
4:00PM Tyler has not come as of yet but he text and said that he was having brake trouble and din't know when he would be here this eening. If he doesn't come to get the note and credit card to pick up the truck I will have to drive to Fairmont in the morning and get the truck myself. I don't know if he is even going to sow up tomorrow to help me. Several of the boys told me that they would be here to help me load but I really wonder if any of them would show up. If they don't I am going to let them know that at least four of them oar enjoying the use of all my furnicher and at least one of them is sleep in one of my beds.

6:40PM The Spectrum service man showed up and started to install my TV/Internet.
7:00PM Eric and Johnathan had to leave for home, it would take about 2 hours plus to get there.
7:30PM Spectrum service man left and it looks like I only have basic cable and not what I was promised. Will take that up with them tomorrow. Internet appears to work but will check it out later.
10:00PM Checking out internet and internet dropped out appoximately 4 times before it stablized.
10:15PM Finished checking out my email and uploaded my blog. Then checked speed of my connection. The speeds highest was to Atalanta GA and it was only 37Mb, not what they say you are getting. The only other connection speed that was even near 30Mb was to Seattle and none of the other cities even came close to 30Mb. They said that I would have speeds up to 90Mb and doesn't look like I am even getting close to that. Have also been checking TV and I am not satisfied with what I am getting, will have to check for a few days and if they won't do anything I will go back to Dish and only get internet from Spectrum. Looks I will be stuck with no more than 30Mb download speed even thought the upload speeds are between 10 and 15Mb so that isn't bad.

1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
9:30AM Up and about, took Bella outside. Bella is getting much better and lets me know when she wants to go outside. She seems to like running around in the grass to do her business. She usually only takes about 5 to 10 minutes.
12:00PM Had lunch, made myself an omlet and had toast and a glass of milk. Haven't had much coffee since I got here. Just seems to hot to enjoy a good cup of coffee. I do have an expresso every couple of days.
2:00PM Went to check the mail and bought a remote for the front gate. I paid $50 for the remote and I don't expect to move from here the $50 is not refundable if I do leave. I don't uncer stand why Don (previous owner) either didn't give me his remote or, at least, sell it to me. Anything would have saved me money and he would have recovered some of his expense. He also did not give me the remote and progaming thumb drive so the alarm system can only be used off line as a warning system and can not be connected to a dispatcher. I didn't expect to activate or pay for a company. The alarm sounds of and warns me of a break in or any door or window being opened.
3:00PM Went to get some gas for the lawn mower and pick up a couple things at the Family Dollar.

I told her I had tried to give it away but noone has come to get it so if she wanted it to go ahead and take it. I also told her to go to the utility room and turn the gas off of the hotwater heater and to open the valves on the shower ant then go out and open the fauset in the front of the house so the water could drain out of the pipes in the house. If they don't sell the house by ther first of November I will have to take a trip back to Bridgeport and get another realtor. I don't thing the broker really wants to sell my house, she if very upset that I would not make all the changes that she demanded for her niece and now she is not going to put any work into selling the house. If Cathy takes care of everything and she can just collect her money for the sale.

She has a phone connected directly to the phone line so she has a phone when the power is off. She said her power was back on so she called me. Have been geting alerts from Bridgeport weather about possible tornados in Doddridge county with hail. Barb said all she got was rain. The man got her roof fixed where she hd water coming in above her front door. Looks like who every worked on her house when she had the bad storm a few yeas ago did a poor job. I hope this man got things fixe correctly this time so she won't have any more trouble. She said Dana is back home for a couple days and then she is going back to Pennsylvania for the rest of the summer. She is really going to get a big supprise when Barb sells the farm. She and Dwayne won't have anywhere to live.

10:10PM Eric just called back and said she is home. He is pissed and worried about his mother. Doesn't worry me in any way. That is his and her problem. She used to leave and sometimes be gone for days so I just got used to it. I told him earlier to just lock the doors and go to bed. She will find her way home or she will call when ever she decides to do so.
11:00PM Meds, injection, going to bed. I have to get up at 8AM to go to the VA for my labs.

9:00AM At the VA and got checked in for my 9:30AM Lab appointment.
10:30AM Finished with my Lab appointment and on my way home.
11:00AM Finished cutting the grass and trimmed.
12:00PM Picked up the mail while I was out. Bella's hookwarm treatment came and two packages for fleas. I will wait and see if I get billed for all of them or not. There was a lot of mix up in the mailing ionstructions because I had a hard time getting through to them to not send my order to WV. I will wait a couple days and check my Discover account to see just what they billed to me. When I picked up the mail my Lakeland Electricity bill also arrived. On the bill was a fee for solid waste, waste water (sewage) Storm water (surface water, fuel fee, and recycling service with a total of $37.24. I called the office and talked to Gloria and asked why I was being billed for water and garbage that was suppossed to be included in my lot fee. She said everyone gets that billing and she would have the owner call me and explain it.
1:00PM Called Lakeland Electric and asked them about it. They told me that it is a flat fee charged by Lakeland Electric and never varies with usage. I think it is a scam made up by Lakeland to collect more money. I don't think it is done by the owner of the MH park but, of course, they didn't fight it so makes them in bed with Lakeland Electric. I will probably just have to live with it since it has been there before me, I was just informed about it. It it doesn vary then I will just have to accept it.
4:00PM Had a very heavy rain and I have water leaking into my Florida room at the floor. Check outside and the drain is not handling the water so it backed up into the Florida room. When it drys out I will have to correct this to keep the water out of my Florida room. Not bad but will have to be fixed.
7:00PM Called Barb. She told me that the two old Italian women from Clarksburg that were on You Tube and fight all the time will be on the Steve Harvey show on NBC at 8PM.
8:30PM Set up online account for Spectrum with ID and password. When I logged in found they still have my last name spelled WILK so I called them and told them to correct it to WILT. We will see if they get it done this time.
9:00PM Watched the Steve Harvey show, great to see the old sisters from Clarksburg.
10:00PM Went on QRZ.com and changed my Bio on the site. Signed up with ARRL again today and they said they would change my address on the FCC site.

1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
11:30AM Up and about, took Bella outside.
4:45PM Called Millie and while talking to Millie it began raining very hard. Within 30 minutes it had rained 1.59 inches and I had flooding again in my Florida room. About an inch on the floor. The water did not get into anything. I had most everything up on something or far enough back so the water did not reach it.
9:30PM Said Good Night to Tyler and Troy. Troy said he has the money to get himself a car and said he is getting a Subaru. Won't hold my breath until he has it and Tyler tells me he has it.
10:00PM Texting with Eric. Told him about my rain problem and he said he may be down next week with Johnathan. I told him everyone is welcome to come. Took Bella outside and while outsid moved the drain pipes for the downspouts and I hope this may help until it get some more pipe and change the drainage system.
Checked and there was not water in the utility shed so that part of the drainage pipe must be working. 11:00PM Watching "Hell on Wheels" I am into the 4th season 13 episode.

July 15, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
3:00AM Watching Netflix "Hell on Wheels" and did not get to bed until 3AM.
8:30AM Up and about, took Bella outside, picked up the blanket from the Florida room floor and took it outside to dry, I place it over the gargabe and recycle containers to drip and dry, and then back in and back to bed.
12:00PM Back up. Fixed myself a cup of coffee, a three egg omelet with green pepper, onion, ham and cheese w/toast.
1:00PM Took Bella back out, things have dried up quite a bit. The water has subsided and is almost gone in the Florida room.
The blanket that I had placed outsid earlier is dry so put it back on the floor in the Florida room to soak up any water left from last night. I also went ont where I had removed the drain pipe along the Florida room and took the weed eater and cut back all of the grass that had grown into the concrete dranage ditch along the edge of the Foroida room. I will have to take notice when it rains today if the water drains better and if the water will also flow out through the drainage pipe that I took up and placed out across thelawn. Will have to go to Lowe's and get a few more feet of drainage pipe and a couple connectors and see if I can fix the pipe to drain properly into the street. I'm paying Lakeland Electric for waste water drainage so I am going to put all I can into the street and let Lakeland Electric remove it. I may even get enough pipe to drain my water down the street several feet so it won't flow back into my popertly of which I pay rent on monthly.
4:30PM Received a call from Cathy telling me she had gotten an offer on the house. $146,000.00 and a concession of $600 for appliance insurance. I told her that if that if they would take it "as is" I would take the offer. We talked and decided to make a counter of $148,000.00 or "as is" for %146,000.00. She called back and said the people, name of David Hayes, would not want repairs and they were looking at a conventional loan with a $50,000.00 down payment so they would not have to go through the nit picking inspection like before, so I agreed on $146,000.00 and I would pay up to $600.00 for appliance warranty. Cathy sent me the paper work via email and I initialed everything that I agreed except I made a note at the inspection statement and sent it back to her in an email attachment. I also made a copy and when Cathy lets me know where to mail the copy to I will send it out, probably on Monday. I also called Matt and FB text to Linda that I needed to talk to Matt. I hope he gets back to me so I will know wthat he came up with on the updating and possible repairs and changes. I know I will owe Matt something for the estimate when he gets in touch with me.
7:00PM Called Barb and told her about the offer. I hope it goes through without to much of a problem. I will not make any more concessions, I'll just leave it on the market. The offer was through another realtor and not Cathy's broker. Maybe they will be a little easier to work with.
9:45PM Talked to Eric and then we went to video chat on FB and talked for over an hour.

July 16, 2017

1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
9:30AM Cathy called, she had gotten the documents that she wanted but she said I was supposed to sign the last sheet and not just intial it. I looked at the last page and it says initial the form. I signed it anyway and emailed it to her. 11:00AM She emailed me another form which was made out by and for the other realtor, the one that is working for the buyer. I should have gotten one of these forms from Cathy (the broker) when she was reprsenting the buyer and not me, but what is new for that bitch. I'll be glad when I am clear of her. Cathy Keener has been very nice and very professional but not Cathy Burge. I will eventually get my pound of flesh. I will at some time talk to her brother, Skip, and let him know that because of his sister his daughter did not get my house, and I know she wanted it badly but she didn't get it because she listened to her greedy aunt Cathy.
2:30PM Talked to Kitty, she and Walt are going to Savannah for a few days.
3:00PM Talked to Millie, she told me that the doctor told her that she possibly had had a slight heart attach over the weekend. She has to go in tomorrow for a stress test. Just what would have happened if she had been here and did not have a regular doctor to go to when she was sick on Sunday.

2:00PM Saw a doctor, Doctor Young, is a really nice guy. He is Chinese and seems to be really interested in you. Of course, he lectured me on my weight and my A1C being high. He looked at my back for moles and said there were two that should be look at by a skin doctor. They made me an appointment for June 18, 2018. If you don't have an on going illness the VA only sees you once a year. If there are any problems all I have to do is call and they will see me. Have my civilian doctor appoitment August 19th so will see what they say. Will take my Labs with me so they can look at them.
3:00PM Went to Winn Dixie to do some shopping. Over $100 again. Did find some pepperoni and I think I am going to use some frozen French bread to see if I can make some Pepperoni rolls. Also picked up some frozen Vietnam white fish, hope it tastes OK, will see.
5:00PM Received a text from Cathy letting me know that they will be inspecting the house on Monday and the water has to be on. I told her that the city had turned it off and sure was not coming home to get the water turned on but she said she could get it turned on for one day so they can inspect the water system. She said she will have to be there before they turn the water on to make sure that everything in the house is turned off and will have to be there when it is turned off. Well, that is what I am paying her for.
7:00PM Talked to Barb.
8:00PM Baked 7 pepperoni rolls using French Bread in a tube and cut in pieces and rolled out and placed pepperoni and baked for 30 minutes at 350degrees. They are small but have a very good taste.
10:30PM Talked to Eric on FB video chat. It works pretty good. He said he is coming down on Wednesday evening and will probably stay until Friday. Josh doesn't work Thursday and Friday but he said no one is coming with him. I think he just wants to get away from his mother for a couple days.

5:00PM Rain stopped and Eric and I went out to check what we could do about the flooding. We found that the down spout was blocked at the bottom and was inserted to far into the drain pipe and we believe that that may be causing the back up of water.

12:20PM Betty called me to let me know that the inspector had been there earlier and he was even walking around on the roof. I hope he doesn't find anything that I can't get fixed quickly. Betty told me that the lawn looked good so Jerry is taking good care of cutting so the $90 isn't bad to keep it looking good. Betty also said the Tim has been around the old house next door but she says she has not seen any improvement or change in what the old house looks like.
7:00PM Called to talked to Barb. She said if I need to come back I can stay with her until I get things taken care of. Possibly I may go back for a short visit when and if the sale goes through and I need to sign the contract to sell the house. If so that may be around August 31st or maybe the following two weeks. It depends on the buyer. It might be easier to go back and get the paper work taken care of quickly and taking care of the house insurance.
7:30PM Eric called and we talked for a few minutes. I told him about the Space Station would be making a pass at 9:00PM and to look for it. I don't think I will be able to see it myself because there are to many clouds.

I told them that I was not going to climb and get the LNBF and switch out of the antenna. Being 81 years old if I had to climb and get the parts out of the antenna and I fell I would hold them responsible, so they told me to forget about sending the LNBF and switch, just send the receiver and the remote.

Tim had been there before and had closed all of the vents under the house. He may have some sort of rodent or bug problem. She said he also was measuring the house from front to back. He may be going to do something to fix up the old shack. She also said that there had been a man parked in my driveway and was looking around my house and looking in the windows.

2:00PM Raining but not to hard.
4:00PM Text Cathy several times to see if anything has happened on the house. I will have to assume that no news is good news. They should have gotten back to me quickly if they want things fixed because I have to have time before they want to close on August 31st. I will have to get my insureance payment for the house in the next few days so the insurance doesn;t lapse. It is due for renewal before August 15 but I have not gotten a bill yet. only the insurance coverage and due date.

2:50PM Received a email from Cathy Keener REALTOR KRB Kaufman Properties, LLC (304) 838-6433 cathykeener1972@gmail.com telling me: "This is what was sent to me by the Agent attached pages are a partial listing of items that need addressed on property located @ 170 Pennsylvania Av. Bridgeport, WV. As the potential buyer, some of the issues were obvious to me ,the ones included were pointed out by John Keener of Mountaineer Home Inspections LLC. Due to the number of items that need upgrading I wish to offer $3,000 less than originally offered. I have estimates on most of the items and the cost of the roof alone $8500, I still wish to purchase the home, but feel that this concession in price is fair to buyer and seller alike. Thank you for your consideration. David Hayes. ".
There was an inspection sheet attached with violations needed to be repaired. Said the back porch was in ill repair and should be replaced due to safety factors that children might be hurt. Also said the roof should be repaired, and all window seals be cleaned and repainted.
3:00PM I called Cathy and told her that if he would take the house and property "AS IS" I would take the $3000.00 off of the cost.
3:34PM Cathy called back and said that is what he meant and he would take the house and property "AS IS" at $143,000.00. She said that she would make up the paper work and send it to me for my signature. They still want the closing date of August 31, 2017.
4:05PM Eric and I were watching TV when a message popped up in the upper left corner of the TV screen stating that there had been a telephone call from a OH cell phone number 330 639 8217 to a number listed as 864 500 1050. I called the OH number and a women answered and told me she had just gotten her new phone and she was trying to call a number and she thinks she called the 864 500 1050 by mistake. We finally figured it out that the number was my number furnished by Spetrum to be my home phone through my modem. I call the 864 number and it showed an incoming call from my cell phone and then Eric tried it and it showed an incoming call from his cell phone. Looks like I will have to get myself a mobil phone and hook it into my modem in the bedroom and then have a home phone. I was wondering how it worked since the phone is in the bundle of TV/Internet/Phone.
7:00PM Called Barb and talked for a while and I told her to call the 864 number to see what would happen.
7:20PM Allen Mark popped up on my TV screen so it looks like it works. Called Barb back and told her it works so she saved the new home number.

4:30PM He called and he is having some trouble with some women in a tan van with a uniform on who, stopped him with flashing lights and jumped out ot the van and started to yell at him because he must of cut her off, so she thought. He didn't take any shit from her and she got back in her van and left.
7:00PM Called Barb and talked to her for a while. She filled me in on all of the flooding in her area. It must be pretty bad because it is up over the road in several places.
7:30PM I called Eric and he said he got home OK and that he had called the Florida State Police and explained the problem he had with the black bitch on the road in Orlando. They said that the uniform that she was wearing could have been a DNR uniform and someone in the penal system.
7:50PM Millie called me on her cell phone, and we talked for about a half hour.
9:50PM I found some information about Nate's daughter and sent it to Eric to see if it would help Nate find out some about the infromation that he had heard last night that she had been shot in Jacksonville, FL early on Saturday morning.

1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
6:30AM Woke up to storming and heavy rains. Going back to sleep.
11:00AM Still raining very heavy rain. Doesn't seem to be windy. Checked the rain gauge and we have had nearly an inch of rain so far this morning. I have about an inch of water in my Florida room. 12:00PM Went out and moved all of the furniture up against the wall and started to remove the water from the Florida room.
2:00PM It has stopped raining so took Bella out and got all of the water out of the Florida room. I am going to have to do something to stop water from coming in. Opened up the windows on each end of the room to dry everything out.
7:00PM Called Barb and talked for a while. Told her about all of my water problems, but everything is OK now. Have been texting most of the day with Eric. He said he went shrimping and got a few to eat and will probably go again tomorrow at high tide.

She said that the appraisal will be made on Friday August 4th. I wish that this was all over and I could put it all behind me. I don't really expect to make any money, just get out from under and I can go on with my life. Money wise, I should do OK when I get rid of all of this debt associated with the house in Bridgeport and other things that have just drained me. 6:00PM Fixed supper, steak fried with onion/geen pepper/garlic and side of broccoli. Great meal.
7:00PM Barb called, she beat me to it tonight. Going to watch the last session of "The 100". I am on season 4 ep: 11 so only a couple more left until the new season if it is made and picked up. It is an original Netflix series.
9:00PM Called Millie and talked for about an hour. Millie is working now so she had to go to bed around 10PM because she has to get up in the morning and go to work. I am sure glad that I don't have to get a job to pay my debts and bills. Maybe some day I might especially if I don't get this house sold.
11:30PM Finished the series "The 100". Just wonder what will be in the new series when it comes on again.

August 3, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
3:00AM Went to my bedroom at 1AM but, of course, I didn't go to bed. I got on the computer and started doing a few things and didn't make it to bed until 3AM.
9:30AM Up and about and took Bella outside but, of course, I was still sleepy so went back to bed.
12:00PM Heard a women talking outside of my window and looked at the clock and realized it was noon. Must have been more tired than I realized by staying up to 3AM. Took Bella out again and it is overcast but looks nice and not to hot. It is only around 90 degrees so far today. Expecting it to go a little higher unless we get some more rain. TV says 40% chance of rain today, but if it is raining where you are, that means, 100% chance of rain.
1:00PM Not hungry but decided to fix something to eat.
2:00PM Fixed an omelet with green pepper/onion/cheese. Fixed some bacon, toast, and a cup of coffee. I hope this keeps me going for the rest of the day.
6:00PM Decided to bake some more pepperoni rolls. Only made 6 out of the dough that I have. This made larger rolls.
7:00PM Barb called and we talked for a few minutes. Trump was coming on from Huntington and wanted to listen to his speach. Govenor Justice announced that he was changing parties and would be registering as a Republican tomorrow.

5:00PM Fixed chili for supper.
7:00PM Barb called and we talked for a short while.
8:00PM Received an email from Doug Cutlip KC8AJH, the president of SJARA with the Sinewaves attached. He said that this was the final Sinewaves and in the Sinewaves that at the club's last meeting that they had decided to dissolve SJARA and transfer the treasury $869.81 to CWVWA. Just who do they think they are. That money belongs to all of the members of SJARA and should be given back to every member. There were only 5 members at the meeting according the the vote count to move all membership, callsign, equipment, and monies to CWVWA. By my count the members there and voting were: Doug Culip, KC8AJH; Dick Fowler, N8FMD; Tim Yoo. WV8TIM; Pat Chumley, K8PEC; Dave Morris, WD8NSC. It looks to me like the Secretary and Treasurer were not even present.
8:17PM Eric called and he is standing on his back porch and he said he had water in his yard again and up into his shed. Lightening struck nearby while I was talking to him so he decided to get off the phone and go inside.
8:30PM Called Ceil on her home phone and cell phone, Wanted to talk to her about the treasury of the club. It is my feeling that if the club charter is canceled which is what they must do to dissolve the club and transfer all members to another club charter all property must be turned back to all members of the club and dissolve the club. This would be $869.81 divide by 26 members of SJARA paying each member $33.45. I do not think that just with a vote of members present can transfer the Callsign. The state must be contacted about the club charter and the FCC must be contacted to transfer the callsign. I also believe that the costodian of the callsign, K8DF. must either join the CWVWA and the callsign must be reasigned to the CWVWA which means the CWVWA would have to give up the callsign assigned to them.

9:30AM Up and about, took Bella outside, looks like going to be a nice day.
10:00AM Back to bed, still a little sleepy so why stay up.
12:00PM Back up. Had some cereal for lunch.
1:00PM When I tried to go on FB on the SJARA page, I got a message that I had to prove that the name on the FB page was me. Also got a message that I had an inappropriate image on my FB page. The only thing I could figure out from what they were telling me is I had put up inappropriate image on my page and had reported and I had to prove to FB that the name on the page was me. They gave me several options to prove who I was and that the image had been placed on the FB page by me and to justify that it was not inappropriate. I must have satisfied FB because I was given permission to keep my FB page (Sjara Treasurer) that I started several years ago to place individuals of interest in Ham Radio on a FB page. The page has many friends and of course all of their junk appears on the page so it doesn't look much like a Ham Radio page anymore but that's fine with me, but no one is going to tell me to get off just because they don't like what I say. If they don't want to see what I post then all they have to do is "unfriend" me and they won't see anymore.
2:00PM Attempted to call Vic but looks like he has had it because my telephone number can not leave a voice mail.
4:40PM Millie called and we talked for over an hour.

I asked where all of the hammering was coming from this morning and he said it was from the house directly behind him on the next street. I asked if there was someone else moving in and he said that there had been a brothel and some drug dealers living in the unit that belonged to a couple up north that didn't even know other than there grandson was suppose to be house sitting. The cops raided the unit and arrested everyone and then confiscated the property so the owners had to come back and reclaim the property and now they are fixing what was torn up from the old tenant and then they hope to sell the unit. I haven't noticed anything going on around here even though I have head some bad stories but I figure that kind of things go on all around here. Probably got squatters in some of the units either here or in other parks. 5:00PM Texted Cathy about not hearing anything about the house and she said she had a call into to Todd (the buyer's Realtor) and he had not gotten back to her. The buyer was in the neighborhood and gave the impression that he had bought the house and was looking forward to be moving in soon. I don't know why or who is dragging their feet. The contract says that we will close on August 31st and that is just two weeks away and we have to do everything by mail which will take probably 10 days to accomplish. There are only 10 working days left in this month.
5:15PM I texted Dave Parrish and asked what I owed him for the mowing of the lawn and told him not to cut it anymore. He said I owed him $90.00 so I sent him a check from the bank marked "Final Payment in full".
6:00PM Texted Eric.
7:00PM Barb called.
8:15PM Millie called and we talked nearly an hour.

August 17, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
9:30AM Up and about, took Bella outside, it had rained earlier in the morning and things were very wet. Like walking on a wet sponge.
12:00PM Had lunch and getting ready to go to my doctor's appointment at Watson Clinic in Plant City.
2:00PM Arrived at the Clinic and filled out all the paper work to be assigned a doctor at the Watson Clinic.
3:30PM Saw the PA (Lindsey Wells) a very nice young lady. I had my choice to see the doctor or let the PA take care of everything. It was mostly going over my labs from the VA and going through all of my prescriptions. Everybody was really nice. I have an appointment for labs on November 7, 2017 and then an appointment to see the doctor or the PA on November 14, 2017.
4:00PM Went to Wal Mart to pick up some groceries and new home phone. As far as Wal Mart the groceries are not any better than Winn Dixie, everything is geared to the Latino and black community. I can't blame them because most of their clientele are probably Latino and black. I will have to go to Publix to see if I can find some of the things I am looking for. They may not be any different. I will just have to get used to living in Florida and learn to eat the foods that most of the locals eat. Nothing wrong with Latino and black foods, I am just not used to them, I will change. I wish they would have more local vegetables and fruits here. I have checked the produce and most of it comes from Texas and California. Maybe the produce in Florida will be sold in January and February when it is available.
7:00PM Got my new phone hooked up and used it to call Barb. 7:30PM Got my voice mail set up on the new phone. I only put the message on the phone, "If you want to talk to me, please call my cell phone." If the caller knows me than the will know my cell phone number. I'll check the voice mail weekly to see if anyone calls me and leaves a message on the house phone. When the house phone rings it pops up on my TV and I can see who is calling if they have their name on their phone. Then I can answer the house phone.
9:00PM Watching TV, mostly the news and all it is the terrorists attack in Spain.

August 18, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.


Note: When the Liberals get what the want they won't be able to control it.
It seems that all that is on TV are reports of the riots that occurred in Charlottesville, VA. In my opinion it was orchestrated by the far left and the far right. After the riots the Liberals are jumping on the band wagon to blame it all on Trump. Trump is to trusting and was sucked into the controversy making the Conservatives the bad guys. Now the conservative politicians to look good to the Liberal masses will desert Trump. This is not the end. The Liberals feel they have the upper hand but they can only control the uproar and controversy to a point and then they will lose control and it will fall into complete chaos. Start a movement and eventually the movement takes on a life of it's own.
When it gets to the point of the Liberal movement taking on a life of it's own you will see paramilitary organizations come out of the wood work like termites and then the real war will begin.
Then the Liberals will demand that the the National Guard be called out to help the police put down the paramilitary but then they will find out that a very large part of the National Guard in most of the states are also members of Paramilitary groups and either will not go against friends and neighbors or may join them.



4:30AM Bella up and barking at something outside. I hear hammering and don't know where it is coming from.

5:00PM Text back and forth with Cathy (Realtor) about the house. She said the insect inspection went well and does not know what if holding things up. She said it has been sent to the lawyer to finish things up. I hope they wourl get off their asses and get things done so I could stop paying for everything. Seems lik money is going out and nothing coming in. 7:00PM Barb called and we talked for a while. she went out today and got her hair fixed. Her normal Friday hair appointment.
8:00PM Steve from across the street came over and was looking for a 3/8 bolt to put in a wall stud connector. Fount two that fit but hope it all works.

10:42AM Received a call from VA Medical Tampa reminding me of my appointment at 11AM and 1:30PM in Tampa.
12:00PM Had a sweet roll and a cup of coffee for lunch. Loaded the dish washer and cleaned the kitchen a little. One thing about this whole house, it is very easy to keep clean. Will have to clean the wood floors, tile in bathroom, and run the vacuum cleaner tomorrow. Also have to run a load of laundry this afternoon. I checked on the Internet last night and found a Vet that also does grooming about 4 miles from here and I have been by it several times going to the VA Clinic in Lakeland. Looks like their grooming fees are a little high but will have to use them until I can find someone cheaper. Will check and see if I can register Bella with them so I will have a Vet to take her to just in case I need one.
4:00PM Talked to Steve and he told me that the tree is a pink grapefruit, because he has had grapefruit from the tree in the past.
5:00PM Took Bella outside and it was really hot. My weather station said 101.9 degrees and it really felt like it. Bella didn't want to stay out, she did her business quickly and wanted back in the house.
7:00PM Called Barb and we talkeed until 7:30 and Wendy called her so I hung up. Watching FOX News. 7:30PM We had a short rain and the temperature is dropping.
8:30PM The temperature has dropped to 83.7 degrees. It just shows what a little rain can do.

August 20, 2017

10:00AM Had cereal with bananas for breakfast.

6:00PM Haven't figured out what to have for supper.
Maybe I will fix myself a couple hamburgers, or fix me some rice with beef stew. Will probably wait until I talke to Barb.
6:30PM Eric called, he and Johnathan are going to pick up Josh from work. Jerry Lewis age 91 died today.

August 21, 2017
8:00AM Up and about, took Bella outside, getting ready to go to Tampa VA for my appointments.
10:00PM While going to Tampa VA my GPS was trying to take me to the wrong address. When I went by the exit marked for Bruce B. Downs Blvd I realized the GPS was taking me the wrong way so took the next exit and rechecked the GPS. Found out that when I put the address in "Tampa Metro" came up and then I realized that there is two Bruce B. Downs Blvd. in Tampa Metro area so reset the GPS and then it took me to the right address but I could not find a parking place so went on to the VA Hospital and parked with the Valet. Then I found out I was over 3 blocks from where my appointment was at 11AM so I called them and told them to cancel my appointment because I was not going to walk that far for the appointment. I think I will contact my civilian doctor and see if they have a dermatologist and go to them for my skin.
1:00PM Had to go to a instruction on the new CPAP that they were giving me. It was run by a man by the name of Bob and he made the instruction very interesting. Of course, being a long time CPAP user I tried to give them some insight in some of the things that can go wrong when using the CPAP. I hope I helped a little. Bob talked me into trying a new head piece. It fits into your nostrals and is not a mask. I will try it tonight and see how it works. This new CPAP collects a lot more information on the use of your CPAP so you can see how many times it adjusts to changes in your breathing and how many hours you use it, daily, weekly, and monthly and then send the memory card back to them and the will send it back with changes to be made to you CPAP.
2:40PM Watched the eclipse through the window of the meeting room and when I got out I took a look at the last part of the eclipse.
3:00PM Got started out of Tampa but was hungry so I stopped at Burger King and had something to eat.
4:40PM Arrived home and text Eric letting him know that I was home.
7:00PM Talked to Barb.
8:00PM Fixed myself a piece of steak and mac and cheese for supper, had a beer with my supper. Only have 2 beers left so will have to go to the store and pick up a 12 pack of Busch lite.
9:00PM Watching President Trump's speech. It was mostly about his new strategy in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

August 22, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed. Trying the new CPAP. Let you know how it works tomorrow.
9:30AM Cell phone rang but, of course, it was one of those numbers calling me about a loan, fast, money, mortgage, or student loan payoff. Got up and took Bella outside. Checked my new CPAP and it said that I slept 6.6 hours last night and my AHI was 1.1 what ever that really means. Decided to just stay up. Had some cereal from breakfast. Had a cup of coffee.
2:00PM Fixed my self a salad with tuna. Went out and check the temperature. My weather station says it is 108.9 but of course that would be because the sun is on that side of the house. Moved the thermometer from the car port and placed it in the Florida room. It reads 92 degrees in the Florida. To hot to mow the grass.
3:30PM TV/Internet went off. Tried all the corrective things, unplugged and waited, turn everything on and off so I call Spectrum and they said we had an outage in my area according to my cell number.
4:00PM They called me and said the situation had been corrected but had a lot of difficulty getting everything to work again. It was stuck on Channel 9 which is the one it goes to when ever you turn the TV on. Look out and the temperature in the Florida room has gone to 100 degrees and my weather station says 110.1 degrees. That is the difference of shade and in the sun so I sure am not going out and mow the grass. The grass needs cut on the electric right away and they sure are not there mow
4:15PM UPS arrived and delivered my insulin pens. The ice bags were still frozen but were starting to melt a little.
7:00PM Called Barb, she said they were having storms today in WV. We have had no rain here today, temperate is still high, 96 degrees.
8:00PM Fixed myself two hamburgers and made a pot of tea.
9:00PM Watching TV and President Trump is supposed to make a speech in Phoenix, AZ at 10PM.
10:00PM Watching the speech.
11:30PM Watched a little CNN to see what they had to say about Trump's speech and all they could say he was "unhinged" and a bigot and was not qualified to be president and he should be removed from office. Watch FOX and they said he did great but was just being Trump but he would be OK and everything would work out for him.
11:30PM Having a little trouble with Netflix, it says that I have been signed off and would have to sign in again. After trying several times by turning Netflix off and unplugging it, it reset itself and is now working OK.

August 23, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed but watching the end of a movie on Netflix.
9:30AM Up and about, took Bella outside. My CPAP says that I slept 6.5 hours. I feel rested so maybe this new CPAP is letting me sleep better and rest more.
10:00AM Had some corn flakes for breakfast.
2:30PM Walt called while I was outside with Bella so called him back when I got back inside. Kit and Walt are leaving on their cruise on September 4th. August 25th is Walt's 84th birthday and Kit will be 72 on September 7.
3:00PM Found a note on my door, the office needs the number off the back of my remote gate opener. Called Eric to text me a picture of the back of his remote and I took a picture on my phone of my remote. Printed them both out and took the copy to the office and checked the mail. Got a perscription from Express Script.
4:00PM Fixed myself a pizza, W/iced tea.
7:00PM Called and talked to Barb. Looks like we are going to have a storm.
8:00PM Just got dark and a little wind but no rain, must have passed by us. The temperature has dropped to 83 degrees.
9:00PM Eric called and we talked for a while.

August 24, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
9:30AM Up and about, my CPAP says I sleep 8.2 hours. I did get up twice during the night to go to the bathroom.
10:00AM Had some cereal for breakfast.
2:00PM A lady came by the house with a note that they are having a labor day get together in the club house. They want you to register and it will cost $4.00 each for food. That's not bad for the cost.
5:00PM Cut the grass and trimmed around the house. It wasn't bad as far as the heat, the walking and dragging the lawn mower around is what gets to me.
6:00PM Finished the grass and sitting watching the news until I cool off then I will take a shower.

Note: I know someone or maybe more are reading my blog because I have a counter on the page and it jumps between the times I go on and when I go back on to update the next time. If you are reading my blog let me know.

7:00PM Called Barb.
8:00PM Fixed myself hash browns and chicken for supper.
9:00PM Doing nothing except watching.

August 25, 2017

9:30AM Received one of those calls that rings one time and hangs up.
10:30PM Took Bella outside, had some cereal for breakfast.
1:00PM Fixed myself a sandwich for lunch. Don't know if I will go to the grocery store this afternoon or not. I do need milk and couple other things.
2:00PM VA Hospital called about rescheduling me to the skin doctor and I told them that I would schedule an appointment with a civilian doctor.
2:30PM Made an appointment to have Bella groomed at the Vet on Drane Field Road on Tuesday morning at 9AM August 29, 2017. Hate getting up that early but will just drop her off and then come back home and they will call me when to pick her up.
7:00PM Called Barb. Barb seems to be not feeling to well lately. I hope that she isn't coming down with something. At least, school is starting and Dana will be around during the day during the week. She will still go to PA on Friday night and not come back until late Sunday evening. I hope Barb gets along OK.
7:30PM Had a salad for supper and fixed some more tea
8:00PM We are having rain and a little wind. Gust up to about 10mph and about .25 inches of rain.
9:00PM Watching FOX and about the only thing on is Hurricane Harvey news. At least, Harvey has taken the news away from the liberal outlook on Trump.
11:00PM Went to CNN and of course, they are still spitting out the down with Trump news. Sheriff Arpaio has been pardoned by Trump and Gorka is out. Let's see if Gorka supports Trump now that he is out of the White House. Never did trust Gorka.
11:15PM Boiled a few eggs.

August 26, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
10:30AM Up and about, took Bella outside.
12:00PM Fixed some lunch, had a boiled egg and a spam sandwich. Net to go to the store.
3:00PM Started to rain and looks like it is going to last for a while, just sitting stationary at the moment on radar.
4:00PM Not much on TV except about Harvey hurricane in TX. Most of it is just repeating it over and over, but now are taking a few pictures of the after the strong winds. Was a lot of damage by the winds but the rain is what they are really concerned about.
6:00PM Going to Winn Dixie to get some groceries.
7:00PM Barb called me while I was shopping so I talked to her for a few minutes and then continued shopping.
8:00PM Back home, talked to Barb from the car on my way back.
8:30PM I am slowing putting things away. All of the stuff that has to be put in the refrigerator is put away. Have to put all the other things away. Will have to fix myself something to eat while I watch the news on TV.
9:00PM Had some potato salad and a glass of tea.

August 27, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
9:30AM Up and about, took Bella outside. It has been raining heavily most of the morning. When I went out to clean up after Bella I had to wade through water over my shoe tops. You can't see the water but the grass is just like a sponge and you sink deep into it, thus into the water.
10:00AM Had a glass of milk. Will get something to eat later.
2:00PM Fixed myself a sandwich and had a Pepsi.
5:00PM Has been raining off and on all day. No sunshine today, just overcast between rain. Nothing on TV except more and more about the flooding in Huston, TX. Well, at least, the liberals are leaving Trump and the statues alone, but it will all come back with a vengeance.
7:00PM Called Barb.
7:30PM Received several texts from Becky, Barb's grand daughter about DNA testing to find out country of origin. I gave her and Scott some advice about staying away from Ancestry.com and suggested Familytreedna.com for autosumual DNA. She said that they had a good time at Disney and were just passing Clarksburg exit on their way home.
9:00PM Fixed my self a hamburger, tomato 1/mayo. Also had a long neck.

August 28, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed. Changing back to my mask for my CPAP. The one that you put in your nose is making my nose sore so going back to the old style. Will call Tampa VA sometime next week and have them send me a new mask.
9:30AM Up and about, went to BR and it is pouring down the rain and Bella does not want to go out so back to bed.
11:00AM Back up and took Bella outside. The field by the house has about 6 inches of water sitting everywhere. Bella was running around and has been rounning around the deeper pools of water. I had to wade through the water to clean up from Bella, just like walking through a swamp. No water problems for me in my Florida room. I may have found the problem and corrected it. Someone brought back my recycle container, must have been Steve.
12:00PM Checked my CPAP and it said that I only sleep .6 hours. I think what happened is when I got up to go to the BR the CPAP reset itself. It does say that this is my 7th day which should read 6th day that I have used it. My old masked worked fine. The CPAP machine said I had no leaks so the mask worked OK. Had a bowl of cereal. Think I will fix a roast for this evening.
2:00PM Received a call from the Vet/groomer to remind me of Bella's appointment tomorrow at 9AM.
4:00PM Put a roast W/potatoes/onion/carrots in over for and hour at 375 degrees.
7:00PM Barb called, Wendy and Dana are there visiting.
8:30PM Called Millie, talked until time for her to go to bed. She has to get up early and go to work tomorrow. She said that Thursday is her last day.

August 29, 2027
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed. Have to get up at 8AM to take Bella to the groomer.
8:00AM Up and about.
9:00AM Took Bella to the Vet to be groomed. She has to have Kennel Cough shot and fecal test before they will groom her. Looks like a little scam to do everything before grooming. I suppose the tests and shots are needed, but didn't expect them when all you want is have her groomed. They will call me when she is ready to be picked up.
11:00AM Fixed myself an omelet ham/cheese/onion for lunch.
2:15PM Vet/groomer called and on my way to pick up Bella.
2:45PM Picked up Bella the bill was only $70.10 in total. $45.00 for the grooming and the remainder for Kennel cough medication and vet complimentary visit. Bella looks good. I believe she will be more comfortable with less hair in the heat.
3:00PM Called Delta Dental to find out why they sent me a bill for $3.25 and they told me it was my premium because being in Florida my premium was $3.25 more but the DFAS will not take out the incresase until the September check.
5:00PM Next door neighbor, Leslie Williamson came over and want to know if I would drive him to pick up a used car. He and his partner, Jessie and Bella all went to look for a used car. When we went out and got to Wabash about half mile up the road there were police everywhere, Leslie said he heard that there was a shot out near Wabash but didn't know it was still going on. We had to detour and we went to a used car lot on Memorial Hwy and Leslie picked up a Datsun, look like around a 2004 possibly, didn't ask him what it was.
5:45PM Arrived back home but there was a detour still in effect at Wabash and New Tampa Hwy right at the CVS. Looks like they were in a MHP there, probably someone shooting at someone shooting up the area. I will watch the news, maybe there will be something on local TV.
6:00PM Fixed supper, Steak w/sauteed mushrooms and onions. With hash brown potatoes on the side. Also had a long neck. Put a picture on FB.
7:00PM Barb called and told me she and Wendy had gone out for dinner at Minard's.
9:00PM Checked the Lakeland Ledger and WFLA web sites and the police were at Wabash and New Tampa Hwy because there had been a domstic desterbance and when they arrived the man in the Mobil Home would not come out so there was a stand off for over an hour. There was no more news that I found.

August 30, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
9:30AM Up and about, took Bella outside. Looks like it is going to be a sunny day. Maybe some things can dry out today. The grass is still like a lake or a wet sponge.
11:30AM Made a call to Huntington to check if there had been any inquiries on my home equity loan and the pay off and the agent told me that there had been no inquiries asking for a pay off of my equity loan. I owe $403 interest on the loan and it is due before September 20th.
1:22PM Tyler called, it was really great to hear his voice. I miss that kid. I surely hope he is getting along OK. He said he is working at a place called, Atria's Restaurant as a cook. I hope he is doing OK. I worry about him and Troy. He said that Troy bought him a ticket to the Basenecter concert in Hampton, VA. He is not driving his car, thank goodness. I asked him for his address because I had forgotten it or misplaced it. It is 1340 Riddle Ave. Morgantown, WV 26505.
2:30PM Decided to call Vincent J. Zakarosky and he answered the phone. Told him who I was and why I was calling and that Mike and Jerry and I had wondered for years what had happened to him. He said he was fine and well and has been living in Sterling, VA for years and is of course retired. He didn't say whether he was retired from the agency, but he did say he does not work for them anymore. Probably will never hear from him again, he didn't sound very enthused to hear from me after 61 years.
3:30PM Cathy, my realtor, called and told me that the house had to be reinspected because the inspecter found what he thought was black mold in the garage. Todd, the other realtor checked and said it just cleaned off and the inpector went back and found that it was OK and resubmitted his inspection papers. I then asked when will they close and she said that the lawyer (Robinson) was taking off the whole week for labor day and would not be in the office and would probably close somewhere around the 11th of September. I suppose I will just have to put up with all the bullshit. I told Cathy that I had stopped the grass mowing as of August 31st and that someone else would have to take care of the lawn.
5:00PM Put some calking around the kick pad on the bottom of the storm door at the end of the Florida room. I think that maybe the water is coming in under the kick pad and not over it.
6:45PM Eric called, he is on his way to pick Josh from work.
7:00PM Called Barb, we talked for half hour until Wheel of Fortune came on at 7:30.
8:00PM Just had some soup for supper tonight, loaded the dish washer and will start when I go to bed.

August 31, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
12:00PM Up and about. Took Bella outside and she went twice. Steve my neighbor came across the street and was talking about the new hurricane, Irene forming in the Atlantic. He seems to be worried that this one may come through here. He also told me that this MHP was a result of a hurricane and was constructed by HUD for hurricane victums. That is why all of the units here are dated at 1970.
1:00PM Had a light lunch of cereal. 2:00PM Called the VA Hospital to see if I can get a new CPAP mask and left a message.
3:00PM Wrote a letter to Zak in Virginia and sent him a picture of the four guys in Bremerhaven. I hope he responds to one of us because it would feel good if he really cares about hearing from us.
4:30PM Betty Moran called me back and we talked about happenings around Bridgeport neighborhood. I asked if I could send her the keys to the house and could have the realtor pick them up from her when the sale closes and she said OK so, putting keys in an envelop and will send them tomorrow.
5:30PM Received a call back from VA Tampa from Tony and we talked about the new CPAP mask and he said he would have it in the mail tomorrow.
6:00PM Fixing Spaghetti for supper and will eat after I talk to Barb.
7:00PM Called Barb and while talking Dana came to the door and Barb said that she would call me back around 8pm.
7:15PM Ate my supper, Spaghetti w/meat balls and had a tall one.
8:00PM Barb called back and we talked for a while.
9:00PM Watching The Five on FOX network.

September 1, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
10:30AM Up and about, took Bella outside. Getting very hot today. It is overcast and there is a slight breeze out of the south east.
12:00PM Had some lunch, a bagel and some potato salad. Really a great lunch.
1:00PM Turning into a nice sunny day with lots of large fluffy clouds.
3:00PM Bella and I went to check the mail. Didn't have any incoming mail. Put a letter in the mail to Zak and sent the keys to the house in Bridgeport to Betty and will tell Cathy that they can pick up the keys from Betty any time after mid week.
7:00PM Talked to Barb.
8:00PM Heavy rain with wind up to around 15mph.
9:00PM Watching Netflix.

September 2, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed. 12:00PM Up and about, was up a couple times earlier but went back to bed. Took Bella outside. About 5AM I was up to go to the bathroom and Bella was snoring very loudly. I may have to have her fitted for a CPAP or kick her and make her rollover, LOL.
12:30PM Had some cereal and I think I will fix myself a cup of coffee and have a bagel and that should take care of me until this evening.
1:00PM Watching FOX and checking the new hurricane Irma. Trump is arriving in Houston. Just wonder what the liberal media and DEMS will say about this visit. I don't think any president needs to to to these desasters because it just adds to the over worked storm workers.
4:00PM Had a down pour with winds up to 15 mph, rain .25 inch.
7:00PM Called Barb on my house phone. I have not gotten any incoming calls on my house phone so thought I would use it. If I didn't have to pay for the phone service I would get rid of it. 9:00PM Just watching TV as usual, mostly FOX news and a couple movies.

1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
7:30AM Awaken by an Amber Alert. My phone gets very loud when it receives an Amber Alert. Some 11 year old Black Female missing in Orlando area.
8:00AM Back to sleep.
9:00AM Received a text from Kit asking about her memory card in her camera, Told her what I think she wanted to know.
9:15AM Received a text from Tyler.
10:00AM Back to sleep.
11:00AM Text from Eric.
12:00PM Decided to get out of bed because I don't think I am going to get any sleep.
3:00PM Suppose to go to the Club House for a Labor Day outing but I just don't want to go. I really don't want to get buddy, buddy with any of my neighbors. I lived in Bridgeport for over 40 years and only knew a couple of my neighbors so why should I be any different here. I really don't have anything in common with anyone here. May one of these days run into someone that I would like to talk to from time to time. I shout at Steve the neighbor across the street and that is maybe once a week. The neighbor behind me came by and borrowed some gas and then the next day I took him to look for a used car. I hope that is about all the contact I have with him, we don't have anything in common either. I hope that nothing happens where I would have to ask one of my neighbors for help. I am just not one to ask anyone for help, if I can't do it my self, I have always paid someone else to do it for me. I hope that I can have enough money to do this in the future.
6:00PM Fixed the left over of the roast beef with potatoes/carrots from a few days ago. I think I might fix chili tomorrow evening, or I might fix rice and black beans. Will wait until tomorrow. Went to put out the recycle container and no one else had theirs out so the garbage must not be going tomorrow because of the holiday.
7:00PM Barb called, said she called first because she thought I may be watching the WV vs VT football game, but it doesn't start until around 7:45PM.
7:45PM Recording the football game and switching on commercials to the news station.
10:40PM The football game is tied up 24 to 24 so don't know how it is going to turn out so will finishing watching it. 10Mintues 31 seconds left in the game.
11:30PM Game over WVU lost 31 to 24.

September 4, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed.
12:00PM Up and about, I didn't go to sleep until 3AM. Took Bella outside. Looks like it will be a beautiful day.
4:00Pm Has been a typical boring day but I really don't mind. I will have to go out and get a few things such as milk and a few other things. Kit text me these pictures of Walt on the Cruise Vessel. Looks like he is enjoying himself so far.

Walt on the cruise vessel getting ready for cast off.


6:00PM Going to the grocery store. Talked to Steve (my neighbor) before I left and he seems to be really concerned about Irma. He told me he expects the hurricane to hit next week end so he and his wife will be staying in a hotel over the weekend. I am concerned but I will not run and hide just in case the hurricane hits. I will keep my eye on it and see what the local officials recommend and will evacuate if needed or just hunker down and live in my bathtub while it is going on.
6:15PM Talked to Barb on my way to Winn Dixie.
8:00PM Back home and putting groceries away. It is starting to rain harder. It was raining when I got home but it has started to come down a little harder. Wind is up to about 5mph out of the north north east. Air pressure has dropped.
9:00PM Watching BBC Startrek Voyager marathon. Have seen some of them but some are new to me.
10:00PM Took the garbage container out and let Bella out front for a short time. If we do get storms Bella will be terrified if we have thunder and lightening.

September 5, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, going to bed soon.
12:00PM Up and about, took Bella outside. Went to bed at 3AM, was watching a movie.
2:00PM Talked to my neighbor, Steve, and he said he received a call that he had to come and pick up his mother who is in a Senior Care center a little south of here because since the governor has set a state of emergency and it looks like the hurricane could possibly come through here the Senior Care center is closing until the hurricane passes through.
2:15PM Eric called and he is concerned for me but he may have his own problems if this hurricane hits. I told him if it gets to bad here I will just get into my car and start driving north to stay ahead of the storm. If the storm looks and is curtain that it is coming through here I will pack my important papers and my radio gear into the car along with the dog and find someplace to go.
3:00PM Went out and filled up the gas tank in the car, bought some charcoal just in case I need it and AA and AAA batteries. The Family Dollar was completely sold out of water and they were talking on TV that most of the grocery stores were sold out of water. I can't understand why the thing about water. I have containers that hold 3 gallons of water which is enough to hold me over, also have a half case of beer and a case of Dr. Pepper so I think I have enough to hold me until I can get some more water. I will fill my bath tubs full of water for washing and flushing the johns. Also have a 5 gallon bucket for non potable water. What I don't understand, almost everyone has the very large garbage and recyclable containers that hold 100 Gallons. Why not wash them out and use them to hold water for flushing and cleaning things.
7:00PM Called Barb and told her how things are going. I think that if I only lose the Florida Room I will be lucky. The Florida room will be the first thing to go if we get heavy winds. I don't know how the roof will stand up to beating by the wind. I am going to put my radio gear in the car along with important papers that I will need and be ready to leave at a moments notice.
7:20PM Called Eric, he beeped in while I was talking to Barb so I called him back. He and Johnathan were in the car going to pick up Josh. He says if he gets through this hurricane he is planning on building a concrete lock shed in his yard. I know he has had a lot of problems with flooding with his other out building. It looks to me like it is steel on a slab.
9:00PM Watching FOX News for most of the evening.

September 6, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, starting to get ready for bed.
11:00AM Up and about, took Bella outside.
1:00PM Fixed myself an omelet, ham/cheese, bagel, w/coffee.
2:00PM Received text from Cathy confirming my address/cell fone/email address.
4:15PM Received a call from Jenny Barker, Stepto and Johnson Lawyers wanting information on my bank account numbers for my home equity loan and said she would be emailing me the contract for closing so when I get it I will have to have it notarized and send it back next day air USPS. I hope the hurricane doesn't interfere with getting this done.
5:15PM Millie called and we talked for around 45 minutes. She said that Gray has disappeared somewhere in the house and he has been not feeling to well so she fears he may have crawled off somewhere and died. That will hit Millie hard if that happens.
7:00PM Called Barb and told her that the lawyer is suppose to send me the closing contract via email tomorrow. When I get it I will read it and then take it to Amscot and have my signature notarized and then mail it back to the the lawyer. Barb is concerned about whether I should go to a shelter or not. She told me that jeff and family are in Miami and she is worried about them. Jeff will take care of his family.
8:00PM Bella and I went and checked the mail. Got ARRL junk mail and got the SAR magazine. One of these days I may look up SAR in the area and transfer my membership down here but no hurry.


Note: Irma located just north of Puerto Rico at Midnight on 6 September. Distance from Puerto Rico to Miami is 750 miles...If Irma travels at the forward speed it has maintained for the last two days of 15 mph then it should reach Miami area at approximately Mindnight on 8 September 2017. If it maintains a forward speed of the 15 mph it should be in our area around 10 AM to noon on September 8th, 2017.


September 7, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed. Today is Troy's 25th birthday. It is also Kit's 72nd birthday.
9:30AM Received the Deed and other paper work from Steptoe and Johnson PLLC. When I read the deed it included the house and lot where the house sits and it also included the strip deed from the city. The contract I signed did not include the alley but the lawyer put it in. I figure, what the hell, let it go, just one more way I was screwed in selling the house. According to the final closing I will receive $11824.17 in my account. When I pay everything off that I owe, I will end up with about $7375.00 give or take a little. That will pay what I owe Barb I borrowed for Tyler and what I have on my Discover card I used for moving costs. Now if I can get through this hurricane without a lot of expense I may make it. I have to be a good person all of my life and now the world is screwing me big time, in one way or the other. I will try to see if I can put something up on the front windows. I don't know if I will be able to do it or not.
2:00PM Went to the Wells Fargo Bank at Ariana and Harden Blvd and opened an checking account and put $1500.00 in the account so I would not have any charges for the account. Will get everything set up in the next week if IRMA doesn't kill me or run me out of the country. I will hunker down and hope for the best.
4:00PM Went to the PO and mailed over night the signed deed even though I am not happy with it. I talked to Kathy and told her what the lawyer did with the deed and of course she has my POA and maybe she might get something done about it even though i doubt it very much.
6:30PM Betty Moran called me and told me that Kathy had picked up the keys for the house. Betty had called her telling her that she would be out of town this week end and if she wanted the keys she would have to come by and pick them up.
7:00PM Barb called and she was wondering if I had boarded up any of my windows and I told her that i had trying to cover the front window which is the only window unprotected. The other two large windows in the living room open into the carport and the other into the Florida room so they have some protection from flying debris. If the carport and the Florida room roof stays on the windows will be protected.
8:00PM Thinking about trying tomorrow to cover the front window if I can do it. I have two large corrugated plastic sheets I can use and also a couple pieces of plywood.
9:00PM Will be watching TV the rest of the evening, don't know what else I can do.

September 8, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
9:00AM Up and about, took Bella outside and it is a beautiful day.
10:00PM Found some corrugated plastic sheets (2) and decided to cover the front windows. Of course, Steve saw me and came over and brought his drill and screws and helped me put up the plastic and a piece of plywood over the front windows.
11:00PM Finishing up and the channel TV 8 van came by and stopped and the young lady came up and wanted to ask some questions and so I ended up being interviewed on TV 8. She said I would be on the 6o'clock news so will have to watch that. I set my DVD to record the Channel 8 6 news. I may end up not being on so won't be disappointed if they don't cover me. I told her that if she would call me on my cell I would give her minute by minute wind and wind information or as long as my weather station stays in tact.
5:00PM Millie called and we talked for a while. This was the last day of work for Millie working for the Sheriff.
6:00PM Watched Channel 8 TV news and I got my few seconds on TV.
7:00PM Called Barb and I know she is really worried about me but I am just an old stubborn old man that doesn't want to leave his house. My life for the last 3 years has really gone to shit. First the divorce and that really put me in debt and I have just not been able to get out from under. Jo got what she wanted. She brought me to my knees and I never will ever get over it all.
7:30PM
Note: Received several calls about the deed that I sent back to Steptoe and Johnson. Kathy Berge was bitching why the deed wasn't back and they were supposed to close at 11AM today. What did she expect. I got the deed by email about 9:30AM yesterday and printed it out read it and took it to the bank and got it notarized and mail by overnight at 2:30PM, that's only 5 hours which I think was very speedy. I checked USPS tracking and it said the package was out of Clarksburg PO to be delivered.
I will wait until Monday and if I have service I will check to see if my money is in my account and if not I will start calling and raising hell with someone. I transferred $2000.00 from my savings to checking just in case I need to pay for something to do with the house and damage repair.

September 9, 2017

6:00PM Talked to Eric.
7:00PM Talked to Barb.
10:00PM Randy Studer called and we talked for a few minutes.
11:00PM Just sitting here and trying to figure out just what I need to do. I found a couple pieces of plywood so think I may put them over the window that goes out to the carport. Loaded my radios in the car and packed some clothes and put my new CPAP in the case to put in the car tomorrow. Just hope I have done enough to get me and the house through this hurricane.

September 10, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed. My Erie auto insurance is no longer in effect so I have no collision insurance on my car.
8:00AM Up and about, took Bella outside.
9:00AM Finished covering the windows in the carport.
10:00AM Put my computers and suitcase in the car. Also put my valuables in the car.
12:00PM Had some lunch, ate some of the roast and potatoes.
1:00PM Brought in the two coolers and another piece of plywood and put it over the window in the bedroom. I put it on the inside just incase the window would break and the plywood would keep the glass for flying around the room.
4:00PM The pressure is down to 29.46 from 29.78 at 10AM this morning.
9:00PM The times and happenings may not be completely correct as in order but will try to reconstuct of what I can remember.
10:00PM Hurricane Irma is coming up the west coast of Florida and ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - The Latest on Hurricane Irma (all times local):

September 11, 2018
00:00AM The storm has changed direction a little to the east and looks like it will come directly over us here in Lakeland. Power is off.

Typical Hurricane:
The eye of the hurricane is an area of low pressure, generally below 995 millibars. This may seem somewhat counterintuitive, as air sinks in the eye of a hurricane, which is more typical of high pressure than low pressure.
Note--------
12:15 a.m. A hurricane center update at midnight said Irma remained a Category 2 hurricane with top sustained winds of 155 km/h and was located about 35 kilometres south of Lakeland. The storm is moving north at 22 km/h.
10:55 p.m. Hurricane Irma remains a dangerous Category 2 hurricane despite weakening a bit more to 100 mph (160 kph). It's now bearing down on the Tampa-St. Petersburg region. The National Hurricane Center says Irma's eye is about 50 miles (80 kilometres) southeast of Tampa and moving at a fast clip of 14 mph (22 kph). Still a large hurricane, its tropical storm force winds extend out 415 miles (665 kilometres). Forecasters say they expert Irma's center to stay inland over Florida and then move into Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee. They also expect Irma to weaken further into a tropical storm over far northern Florida or southern Georgia on Monday as it speeds up its forward motion. The hurricane center says the storm is still life-threatening with dangerous storm surge, wind and heavy rains

1:15AM Have watched the Barometric pressure drop on a steady pace to well down below 29.00. At this time the storm is passing directly over Lakeland. We have no power and the winds have broken my weather station and I get no speed report at all, only pressure and direction. The winds are hitting well over 100mph and probably higher. The barometric pressure dropped to 28.34 (959.702642600 millibars) the lowest I have seen it in my life. Winds coming out of the north east and east.
1:30AM It has gotten very quite outside so the eye must be passing either over us or very near.
2:00AM Going to bed, no lights, no AC just me and the dog and trying to sleep.
8:00AM Up and about. Took Bella outside, there is a light rain but no wind.
9:00AM Looked the MH over completely and found only one piece of roof trim missing, which is just trim and bout 10 ft long and runs along the edge of the roof. Steve said he thinks he found it laying in his yard, will check later to see if it is my trim he found. The MH at the end of the street lost his carport and the one next to it has damage to the carport.
10:00AM Opened all the windows so I can keep the house as cool as possible. Not really to bad, temperature running around 82 degrees.
12:00PM Removed the window covering in the carport but will take the covering on the front windows later, maybe tomorrow. I don't have a battery drill so will wait until the electricity comes back on. Checking out the charcoal grill just in case I have to start cooking the meat in the freezer.
1:00PM Making several calls to let people know that I am OK and texting with Eric. Looked up the Palatka Public works telephone number for Eric, I assume he wants to contact them so he can turn on the city water to use until he gets his electricity back on. He told me his refrigerator went out caused by brown outs and the voltage was low and probably burned up the compressor. He will have to check and may have to buy a new refrigerator. His mother has the money, I give her enough, $854.00 a month plus she gets her SS on top of that and I know Eric probably pays most of the bills. I hope he gets his electric back on soon.
3:00PM Checked the bank account with my cell phone and my money is in the bank, 11,824.17, not what I wanted but the dam thing is off my back and the MH is in good shape so now I can strat saving some money, I hope.
9:00PM The electricity just came back on so closed all the windows and made sure the hot water heaters and AC were turned back on at the breaker box.
9:45 House is cooling off but the TV is not working. I have no TV signal. The internet and the house phone are working so it must be the TV service. Going to fix myself a big salad and enjoy a nice cold beer, had some on ice.
11:00PM Got my TV service back but can't get my Netflix to work, will check that out tomorrow.

September 12, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready for bed. I will get a good nights sleep tonight since I will have my CPAP again and get a hot shower before going to bed.

Note: I am still wondering if anyone is really reading my blog. If there is I bet they get a good laugh out of my bull shit.

10:30AM Had a good nights sleep, used my old CPAP since I had packed my new CPAP in the car just in case I would have gone to a shelter. Eric had called at 10:15 but I did not get up to answer it.
10:51AM Called Eric and he was going out to get gas, he didn't say that it was for his car or his generator, probably both. He also said that his neighbor had city water and he was going to connect a hose and run it from his neighbor. I told him that he would need a double female connector to hook the hose directly to his faucet and then he would have water in the whole house. He has been carrying drinking water from his neighbor and using saved water for flushing.
12:00PM Went out and with Carlos my neighbor's help took down the covering on my front windows.
2:00PM Mowed the lawn and fixed my wind part of my weather station. Found the dog brush and removed the burrs from Bella front pawls. Still have to brush his rear legs for burrs.
4:30PM Took a nice long shower and put on clean close and watching Star Trek next Generation and having a nice tall iced Pepsi.
6:00PM Relaxing and watching Channel TV 8. Still there are a lot of people without power in the area. I think Eric is without power and I figure by this time Jo is really giving him fits. When the power was off for 12 days in 2013 she just packed up and left, leaving me to take care of anything around the house. She went to Eric's because he had power and off course AC. The temperature went as high as 102 degrees.

September 13, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
10:30AM Up and about,Eric had text me and woke me up. Took Bella outside.
12:00 Had a bagel with cream cheese and strawberry preserves with a cup of coffee.
12:01 Sue Nay called and we talked for a while, John seems to be getting along about the same as before with all his problems. Judy has improved but she still had difficulty speaking and has to walk with a walker. I will have to get another card and send it to here.
2:00PM Checked with the bank about the $65.13 in my equity account and they told me that they would send me a check for a refund. I asked for them to just deposit it in my checking account. 3:00PM Transferred $4000.00 from my savings account to my check account so I can send Discover $1921.67 and pay them off and send Barb a check for $2500.00 so then I will be completely out of debt. Maybe I can now save a little since I will be out from under the insurance, taxes, and utilities in Bridgeport and will only have my utilities and lot rent here in Lakeland.
4:00PM Texted with Eric and he still does not have electricity but did get hooked up to his neighbor so he has water.
7:00PM Barb called and we talked for a short time because Wendy is there. She and Wendy went out to a movie and got something to eat. Don't know if Dana went with her or not, she did not say.

September 14, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
12:00PM Up and about, took Bella outside.
1:00PM Fixed myself hash browns with scrambled egg. Made some lemon aide.
2:00PM Texted Eric several times through out the day but his situation has not changed, he has water and he is running his generator so he has fans and is cooking on the grill and with the microwave.
7:00PM Barb called, Wendy went home earlier today.
11:00PM Eric called while he was going to Eva's to pick up Seth to come to his house. All the boys were in the car and they all seem to be getting along very well. They may be suffering from the heat but they will get through it. Eric probably will get along OK also, Jo (EX) will be one to suffer from the heat. She doesn't handle things like this very well. When the power went off for 12 days in the summer of 2013 she just packed up her clothes and went to live with Eric until the power came back on in Bridgeport. She will live through it.

September 15, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
11:00AM Heard the clock struck 11 o'clock and decided to get out of bed. There was really no need except Bella wanted to go out.
10:15AM Got a text from Eric telling me that he had gotten his power about 9:15AM and everything was getting back to normal.
12:00PM Had two hamburgers for lunch.
2:45PM Kit called and gave me the run down on her and Walt's cruise and they are expecting to go again next year.
3:00PM Millie called and we talked for about 20 minutes. She will probably be calling more during the day since she isn't working now. She said she had made enough money to pay something on her AC/furnace.
3:45PM Called Barb to tell her that Kit and Walt were home and she had called. They didn't have any damage from Irma. Barb said that Kit had called her a little earlier.
7:00PM Called Barb again and we talked for a short time. Will talk to her again tomorrow evening.
7:30PM Thought I better go check the mail since I haven't checked the mail since the hurricane.
7:45PM Back from getting the mail, got the electric bill from Bridgeport address and also from the Lakeland address. Will pay them tonight. Will probably get one more electric bill from Bridgeport for around 4 or 5 days.
10:30PM Eric texted and he had some trouble with his chain saw today but said he got it straightened out.
11:00PM Cathy Realitor agent text to check to see if I had gotten the papers today. I told her it that the papers arrived today via Priority Mail.

September 16, 2018
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
9:30AM Eric called but I did not answer the phone. If he needs me he will call back. 10:30AM Eric called back and he said he was coming down for a couple days. Said he would be here around 1PM.
11:00AM Took Bella outside. Nice day.
1:30PM Eric just came and is going to stay until tomorrow. He said he just had to get away for a couple days. They have electricity and everything is back to normal so he came down to visit.
5:00PM Eric and I went to McDonald's for supper. They had a limited menu so we had 2 quarter pounders, fries and a drink. Eric saw a guy sitting on the edge of the road with a sign "need gas money" so Eric gave him $5.00 and the guy got on his bicycle and went straight to the gas station and filled up his gas container.
6:00PM Went to Winn Dixie and got $119.00 in groceries. When I went to the meat department I asked for KY ham and the girl told me it was $4.99 per pound and when she put it on the scale it charged me $7.99 per pound. When I confronted her about the price she said all she could do was take it back so I told her I would take but would go to customer service and complain. When I went to customer service they knocked off $3.00 on the price. I told them I wanted it reduced or they could just keep it.
7:00PM Called Barb and talked to her for a while.
7:30PM Seth called and told Eric that he was having car trouble and wanted his dad to come home and take care of it. Eric got ready to leave and Seth called back and said that he got the car home so Eric is not going home tonight, he will go home around 11:30AM and see what he can do about the car (Eva's car) and be there early enough to take Seth to work, JO (EX) said she would take Jose to work in the morning. At lease, she is good for something, not much, but something.
9:00PM Eric and I are just relaxing and watching TV. Eric and the dog are lying on the couch and I figure they will both fall asleep soon.

September 17, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injeciton, going to bed.
9:00AM Up and about, Eric took Bella outside. Have to keep Bella out of the tall grass because she is getting little burrs on her legs. Eric set for an half hour last night brushing the burrs out of Bella's fur.
11:00AM Eric left for home. He wants to get there in time to try and fix Eva's car so Seth will have transportation to and from work.
11:30AM Check via cell phone and asked Eric if his remote worked when he came though the gate and he said it did not. I had tried mine last night and it did not work. Will have to go to the office tomorrow and raise hell about paying $50.00 for a remote that does not work.
12:00PM Sent the Insurance cancelation forms, one for the house and one for the car, to USA for my Erie insurance. I now wonder how long it will take me to get my refund for my house insurance and how much I will get back for just 15 days of insurance.
4:00PM Eric called he got home OK.
5:00PM Took Bella outside and got the trimmer out and trimmed around the grapefruit tree and found 4 large grapefruit in the grass that they had cut so picked them up and brought them into the Florida room and put them on the table to see if they will get ripe. Eric says he did that and they got ripe.
7:00PM Called Barb and we talked for a few minutes.
9:00PM Watching Netflix.

September 18, 2017
1:00AM Getting ready to go to bed. Meds, injection.
9:30AM The telephone started to ring and, of course, I got several robot calls in the next couple hours since I did not answer.
10:00AM Tyler text me and wanted to use my FB account. I figure he wants to go to his mother's FB page and I am attached he can go to it by using my FB account. I sent him my PW so he could use it. Today is Mindi's 50th birthday. It will be a sad day for me. 11:00AM I put up Mindi's birth announcement on her FB page. It has been nearly 7 years and her FB page is still up and from time to time some of her old friends put up something in memory. I really appreciate that they remember.
12:30PM Looked out and Steve is bringing my garbage containers back to the house. Bella noticed him and barked.
3:30PM Went to Family $ to get milk and some crackers for the chili I made for supper.
3:36PM Millie called while I was gone and I did not take my phone with me.
4:00PM Tried to call Millie and it went to her voice mail but her mailbox was full. She just has not figured out how to empty her mail box yet.
7:00PM Called Barb and we talked for a few minutes.
9:00PM Texting with Eric all evening.
10:00PM Went to Mindi's FB page to see if anyone has left any messages since it is her 50th birthday. Neither of the boys have said anything about her today even though it is her birthday.

September 19, 2017

1:00PM Big earthquake in Mexico about 75 miles south of Mexico City DC. Hurricane Maria Cat5 hitting Puerto Rico, I sure hope it turns north and misses us.
2:00PM Baked half dozen pepperoni rolls.
6:10PM Called Tyler to wish him a Happy Birthday. I didn't expect him to answer but he did and we had a nice chat. He sounds great but I am always worried about him and Troy. He said he may come down in October or November. I told him to wait until it gets cold and then he can come down and go to the beach and just enjoy the warm weather.
7:00PM Barb called.

Note: Things in this world are looking bad. Hurricane Harvey in Texas, then Hurricane Irma run the whole length of Florida, I was hit by the eye with a barometric pressure of 959 millibars (28.34 inhg), now Mexico has two terrible earthquakes and Puerto Rico is being hit by Hurricane Maria Cat5. Also the liberals are all over Trump for his speech at the UN. He just told them as it is.

12:30PM Lots of pounding outside, must be someone doing some repairs. Will have to go out and take a look even though there isn't anything I could do to help.
7:00PM Talked to Barb.
9:00PM Doing nothing except watching TV, did cut a 20 meter dipole, at least I have a start on my antenna. Will have to dig out the coax to attach to the dipole.

12:00PM Had a bowl of cereal for lunch.
1:00PM Listening to the local repeater (146.685) and they were discussing that the LARC Hamfest that was canceled on Septmeber 9th because of the hurricane will be held on November 4th and the same day the Kathleen Genealogical Society will have their open house. The two are in the same area of Kathleen and maybe I will be able to attend both of the activities.
7:00PM Called Barb.
8:00PM Had some boiled red potatoes w/butter and then cut them up and fried them with bacon. Also had a Bud Light long neck.
8:30PM Contacted Troy to get Nick's cell number 304 xxx 5965 and texted Nick and asked about Betty. I have been trying to contact Betty since the hurricane. I know she went to Susan's wedding but I figured she would be back home by now unless she went down south to stay with Susan for a while.

September 25, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
10:30AM Up and about, took Bella outside.
11:00AM Betty Moran called, said she had been at Susan's house in NC for two weeks but was glad to be home again. I know what she means about being away for that long from home. Slowly it is starting to feel like home here in Lakeland. One thing my living room is about the same size as my old living room and is set up in the same way so at times if I drift off and wake up I feel I am still in WV. Betty says that they tore down the old metal shed in the back yard and that there has been people in and out of the house today. She says they took down the drapes in the living room so they must be having them cleaned. I hope the shear curtains hold together for them. The shears are really old.I really don't care what they do to the house since it is no longer mine. The only thing I hope they keep is the Yellow Pine in the yard that Lennis sent me and I planted dedicated to MIndi.
2:30PM Millie called, she was at a friends house and was using their cell phone to call me.
2:45PM Michelle from Erie Insurance returned my call and said that I should be getting $339.86 back on my house insurance.

September 26, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed. This would be my mothers 106th birthday. She was born September 26, 1911 at Pine Bluff on Bingamon Creek, Harrison County, WV.
12:00PM Up and about, took Bella outside, had a glass of V8 and had a bowl of cereal with a banana.
1:00PM Cut up the ribs I got yesterday from Winn Dixie and made three pieces of ribs with barbecue sauce and put them in the oven. Will bake them for 3 hours and then see how they are. Will freeze two of them and eat the third.
2:00PM Nothing going on so just sitting here watching TV and browsing the Internet, checking email, Facebook and other things.
2:30PM Cut the large ribs I got yesterday into three nice size ribs and put them in two pans and mixed up some barbecue sauce with beer and some herbs and basted the ribs and baked for 2 1/2 hours.
5:00PM Took the ribs out and cut up one and eating it for supper. Will let the other two cool and then will put them in the freezer to have at a later date. They are absolutely delicious.
5:30PM Gave Steve a couple ribs. He brings my garbage can back each week.
6:30PM Finished mowing the grass, didn't trim. Will have to trim in the next couple days or when I get around to it.
7:00PM Called Barb and talked for a little while.
8:20PM Saw that Carlos was home so I went over and took the cover for the memory sponge mattress that I had given him earlier. Set and talked for a little while, talked mostly about his family that is still in Puerto Rico and how bad things are. He surely is not a Trump supporter so I know not to talk politics with him. I think that the worse thing about getting help to Puerto Rico is because of just the logistics of just getting there, it is a 2 day trip by ship and they can only carry so much by plane. I think things will start looking up in about three more days.

September 27, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready for bed.
9:00AM Received a text from Wendy that Barb had been admitted to UHC Hospital at 4:30AM this morning. She had fainted and fell on the floor and when she came around called Dana and Dana called 911 and the emergency came. She has an emergency alert button that she has on her at all times but just like all of us old people are very hard headed and don't use what she should have used to get emergency help.
9:05AM Kit called and she had talked to Barb at the hospital and she was feeling better but all they were doing was making test and had not determined what her problem is.
9:30AM Decided to call Barb and she answered and told me that she was feeling better and that she was going through test and had been told nothing as to her condition. We talked for a short time and I gold her that I would call her back at 7PM as usual.
10:00AM Was very tired and drained so went back to sleep. Of course, it has upset me about Barb but I finally went back to sleep.
1:30PM Woke up and got up and took Bella outside. It is extremely hot today. My temperature says it is 117.00 degrees in the sun. The weather station at the airport says 90 degrees but, of course, that is in the shade, which is what is considered the official temperature. When you are moving around outside you are not in the shade all the time.
2:00PM Called Kit and talked for a short time. We talked about how hard headed all of us Wilts are. We do what we want and don't listen to others telling what is best for us. We agreed that is the "Bud Wilt" in use.
3:00PM Washing a load of clothes w/towels and a couple rugs.
4:15PM Called PEIA about changing the direct payment from my bank account from Huntington Bank to Wells Fargo Bank. They said that they would send me a form to do the change.



Several people have asked me about my Mobile Home here in Lakeland so I thought that I would put some information here to let them know what it is like to live in a Mobil Home. I have as much square footage as I had the house in Bridgeport. There I only had one bathroom, here I have two full bathrooms, both with tubs and showers, one with a shower curtain, and one with a sliding door. I only have a carport here but of course no snow so a carport is fine. Have a very nice Florida Room which is open air (screened) and can be closed if there is blowing rain. I have a very nice work shop which in Bridgeport I had two outside sheds which were only used for storage. I have more than enough storage in the Mobile Home with walk in closets in both bed rooms. I also have a small (5ft X 5ft vestibule) and in Bridgeport the front door opened directly into the living room. The living room is completed carpeted, bedroom 1 is carpeted, eat in kitchen is hardwood flooring, bedroom 2 is hardwood and both bathrooms have 12' ceramic tile.
My lot is 50ft X 60ft with a very nice lawn which only takes about 20 minutes to mow and trim. I would like it if the MH was setting further from the street but I am on a dead end street so have very little traffic. Only 8 MH on my end of the street. On the west side of my lot I have a 200ft open grassed area maintained by the Electric company. It is like an open field which is mowed on a regular basis. Bella loves to run in this area. We do have a lease law but in this area it is not enforced. A lot of residence walk there dogs in this large grassed area but everyone does clean up from there pets.

6:00PM Barb called me on her cell phone. Said she was feeling better but the doctor was going to keep her in the hospital for a few days for observation. She will probably get out on Friday evening. Wendy is going to stay for a while and I figure Wendy will start to push Barb into moving in with her in Columbus. Barb will fight this but if Wendy could find her a nice assisted living facility near her Barb might consider it. I worry about Barb being by herself. If this fainting had happened during the day she would have been on her own until Dana could get there which takes at lease a half hour. If it would have been on a week end Dana would have been in Pennsylvania.
7:00PM I called Iris and told her Barb was in the hospital and she said she would go by tomorrow to visit her.
8:30PM Tried to call Millie and again her mailbox is full. Either she is getting a lot of calls going to voice mail or she just hasn't gotten the mail box emptied.
11:00PM Checked the Powerball, of course, I didn't win anything.

September 28, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
10:00AM Up and about, took Bella outside. Received a text from Eric around 8:35AM but I did not get up to read it. Just a reply to my bedtime text to him. Had a bowl of cereal.
10:30AM Called Barb and talked for a short time. She is feeling better and she said the doctor thinks it was her blood pressure medication that may have caused her to faint. He says he is going to change or adjust her medication.
1:00PM Iris called and said she was at the hospital and Barb was not in the computer, so I gave her the telephone number which is probably contains her room number.
6:39PM Barb called from her home phone and said she was home but she couldn't talk at the moment and call her back after 7PM.
7:00PM Barb called back and said that she was home and was looking forward to getting a good nights sleep tonight. She wanted me to call Kit and let know that she was home.
7:15PM Called Kit and talked for a few minutes and let her know Barb was home and she said she would call Barb in the morning as usual.
9:00PM Watching TV.

September 29, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
9:30AM Awaken by a couple of those robotic calls in about 5 minutes. When a number rings my cell phone, by voice, announces who is calling telling me who is calling, if it is one of those robotic calls my cell phone just gives me the number and if I don't recognize the number I don't answer.
10:00AM Got another call and my phone just gave me the number so I didn't answer it.
11:30AM Got out of bed, took Bella outside and came back in and saw that there was a voice mail for me. Checked the voice mail and it was from the 800 number I had received a call at 10:00AM and it was from Barb's Emergency Alert company. Hit redial and it went to an answering machine. Tried to call Barb's home number with no answer, so I then dialed Wendy and she and Barb were at the hair salon and the 10:00AM call was an error. Wendy told me that Barb can't hear the speaker response of the Emergency Alert because it isn't loud enough for her to hear if she is in the living room watching TV or in the kitchen or bath room so Dwayne is going to move the speak device in the bed room to the living room so Barb can hear it if the alert button is accidentally pushed and they respond to her over the speaker before calling the emergency vehicle. I know what she means, my alert on my alarm system is in the living room and if I am in the bed room or at the door when I set or deactivate the alarm the speaker makes an announcement of the condition of the alarm and if the TV is on I can't hear it, I have to listen very carefully just to hear the condition of the alarm "on or off" when I set or deactivate the alarm.
12:00PM I went into my cell phone and placed the 800 number that appears on my caller ID for the information on Barb's alert so now my cell phone will say "Emergency Alert Barbara" so I will know it is the emergency alert calling me. I hope the 800 number doesn't change used to call me.
2:30PM Millie called and we talked for half hour.
7:00PM Called Barb and we talked for a while. Wendy is going home tomorrow. I hope Barb gets along OK. I wish she would decide to come to Florida at least for the winter. I know she won't come but I have asked her.

September 30, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
10:30AM Up and about, took Bella outside, overcast but warm. Large fluffy clouds, not rain clouds.
12:30PM Received a call from Ruby, just checking on me to see how things are going. Gave her a complete report and we just talked about everyone and everything for around half hour.
1:00PM Text Eric several times just to see how his day is going and, of course, giving a daily report. Eric and I have talked and text more since I have moved to Lakeland than we had done for years before my move.
7:00PM Called Barb, talked for a while, Wendy has gone home and Dana won't be back until Sunday from Pennsylvania so Barb is there by herself. While talking she mentioned that Ferd Rogers had called her and asked if she had heard anything about Mary Lee Hines. She has been living with her daughter and Ferd thought that possibly she had died. I told Barb that I would check to see what I could find out.
10:00PM Called Barb back, I had noticed that on Lori Bee's FB page she mentioned that Carol Gaynor had mentioned to her that Mary Lee had passed sometime in the last week or so. Went to Carol Gaynor's FB page and she had a note that she had heard from Jenny Hines, Mary Lee's daughter via letter and said that Mary Lee had passed away in the last couple weeks. Didn't find anything else about Mary Lee. Told Barb, but I will continue to check the obituaries to find out if I can come up with something.
11:00PM Eric text and sent me a new site to watch some movies, will take a look at it later.

October 1, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
12:30PM Up and about, took Bella outside. Just turned on TV and watching all the bad news and what is going wrong in Puerto Rico. Of course, the libtards are climbing all over Trump and trying to hang the Puerto Rico situation around Trumps neck. They are having a ball because of all the problems the citizens of Puerto Rico are suffering.
7:00PM Talked to Barb, she told me that there was an obituary for Mary Lee Hines in today's paper. I went to the Exp/Tel web site and the obituary was there. It did not list when she was born or died so I put her picture in my data files and also added her life experience letter in the record.
8:00PM Had a rain and then it cooled off, Eric text and said his back yard is flooded again. He is going to have to do something about the flooding or just live with it. It does take away that part of his yard he can't use because it floods. I figure he will do something this winter about moving his storage shed away from that area so it won't flood.
9:00PM Got the boxes condensed into just one box I can put in the bedroom closet. Found two lengths of coax so I can put my 20 mtr dipole together tomorrow.

October 2, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed. Loaded the dish washer.
12:00PM Up and about, took Bella outside, it is over cast.
12:30PM Turned on TV and it looks like another mass shooting in Los Vegas, The news says 50 plus killed and over 500 injured by a shooter out of hotel windows. Most of the injured were from being trampled in the panic.
1:00PM Millie called and we talked for a few minutes and she wants me to call her back in a couple hours. She first called on the house phone and then she called on the cell phone.
1:42PM Lost power. Called Lakeland Electric and through the automated system reported the power out, but it did not recognize my cell phone number.
3:00PM The power is back on, Steve said that they had to take down the whole park because of a bad ground on a transformer near or in the park.
5:30PM Called Barb letting her know that I was going to a Ham Club meeting at 7PM.
8:30PM Called Barb from the car on my way back from the club meeting.
9:00PM Back home after stopping at the local Family Dollar.
10:00PM Watching TV and a news release and conference from Las Vegas, NV. Now 59 dead and 529 injured.

October 3, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
11:00AM Up and about, took Bella outside.
1:00PM Going to Wells Fargo bank to set up direct deposit and savings account.
3:00PM Got my retirement pay set up for direct deposit at Wells Fargo but will have to call Social Security in a couple days, this is SS check day so they are extremely busy.
4:00PM Back home, went to Winn Dixie and picked up some groceries.
6:00PM Watching the news, local and national about the shooting in Las Vegas, NV
7:00PM Called Barb, Dana had her tooth taken out today and Barb took him to the dentist and he drove Dana home and then he went back to PA.
8:00PM Got my 20 mtr antenna put together so may be able to put it tomorrow or the next day. I wish Eric would come down so he could help me put it up.
9:15PM Millie called, I think she is fishing about coming to Florida. I just can't be responsible for her because she needs help taking care of herself and I can just barely take care of myself.

October 4, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
11:00AM Up and about, took Bella outside. Have been getting calls about every 15 minutes starting around 9:30 this morning. I just ignored the calls and when I got out of bed checked my phone and, of course, they were all bogus calls. I even got one on the house phone and, of course, they didn't leave a message. It is really ridiculous why and for what reason these calls are made.
4:00PM Started working on my antenna, put the 40/80 vertical and the 2/440 antenna on the mast and connected the center conductor to my 20 mtr inverted Vee on the mast.
7:00PM Talked to Barb and then went out and finished putting up the mast with the antennas and run the coax to the bedroom.
8:00PM Check out the SWR on all the bands and the antenna raw were 1.5:1 and the HF SWR are 1.2:1 with the antenna tuner. Initialized the FT 991 and the finals are still bad. Checked out the repeater (146.685) and talked to Rich W4ESS for over 30 minutes. Asked him about the picnic and he said it is at Lake Parker Park on October 28. They will be setting up very early but I probably won't get there until about noon. Also we talked about the Hamfest on November 4th and he said he is running a special event station at the Kathleen Historical Society on November 4th also so maybe I will make both of them Rich also reminded me that the Kathleen Historical Society has a spaghetti dinner every month on the 3rd Thursday. Will have to check it out next month.
9:00PM Watching a couple new shows on NBC and ABC tonight.

October 5, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
12:00PM Up and about, took Bella outside, I just stayed in bed because it had been raining all morning. Found my 20 mtr antenna loose on one end. Looked like it had just unwound and came loose at the end, re twisted the loop and hook it up again. Will have to make better connections and put the coax up over the roof after I take the pole down and add the 80 mtr dipole. If this doesn't work on 80 mtrs will have to make a 80 mtr loop so I can use it.
3:00PM Decided to call Joe Pirkle and had a very good hour plus conversation. He invited me to have breakfast on Tuesday at the Brunch Box on Memorial Blvd with a bunch of hams. I will try to go if I can get out of bed that early. 5:00PM Talked to K4EMT (Sarah) for a shot time on the repeater and when I finished talking to her I talked to N7CUC (Sam) for a while until time for the news to come on.
6:20PM Heard N7CUC (Sam) on 80 mtrs (3.880) so I gave him a call. He head me but the guy he was talking to could not hear me. Looks like I am going to have to work on my 80 mtr antenna.
7:00PM Called Barb and we talked for a while. She said that when she talked to Kit this morning Kit was not feeling well and Barb was concerned and I said I would text her to see how she was.
8:30PM When I did not get a return from the text to Kit I called Walter. Talked to Walter for a while and he said Kit had gone the doctor and he said she had no infection and should just go home. She probably has one of those lunknown bugs and she will be OK in a couple days. I hope it isn't anything serious.

October 6, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
7:30AM Up and about, took Bella outside.
9:00AM Talking on the 146.685 repeater to N7CUC (Sam) and KM4BAO (Bob) came in and wanted to talk to me about my FT991 transceiver so I called him on his cell phone. He gave me a name and telephone number of George Wagner K5KG that lives in Sarasota, FL and is a local rep for Yaesu and Bob had been telling him about my problems with my FT991.
1;30PM Called George in Sarasota and he wanted to know all about my problems I have been having with my FT991 and he needed my original sales receipt from Gigiparts and information on when I sent the FT991 in and had it repaired before. I bought the FT991 on June 11, 2017 and it went bad and I sent it to Yaesu on November 16, 2015 and Yaesu repaired it and sent it back to me. It cost me $64.62 and that was out of my pocket and Yaesu did not even mention reimburing me for the shipping. My FT991 went out again, same problem, no power on HF, in February 2017 so I just held on to it because Yaesu when I called said it was not under warranty and if I wanted it repaired I would have to ship it to them and they would fix it for $70.00 per hour plus any parts needed. George said that his understanding was the FT991 was warrantied for 3 years then my FT991 would be covered until June of 2018 since I bought it in June of 2015. I sent George a copy of the original invoice and a copy of my mail receipt when I mailed it back to them. He emailed me confirmation of receipt of both copies and I hope he can help me get the FT991 fixed. I also told him if it only cost a little over $300.00 then when they have my FT991 they can update it to be a FT991a. I hope everything works out.
6:00PM Went and checked my mail and my new door bell came and I have installed it. One in the carport and one at the road side door in the Florida Room. The one in the carport just goes ding,dong but the one in the Florida Room plays a short song.
6:30PM I had laid a piece of frozen fish and two hot pockets outside of the freezer and they had thawed so I put them in the microwave and eat them for supper. Waste not Want not, at least that is what I have been taught all my life.
7:00PM Called Barb and we talked for a short time.
8:00PM Just received an email from Tech Support Yaesu California and said if I send my FT991 to them they will fix it with no charge for parts and labor and ship it back to me. They also said to call them about the conversion of my FT991 to a FT991a. If I can get it for around the $330.00 conversion charge I will have it done. Probably take a few more days for the fix and conversion but I have done without the use of my FT991 for several months now so what is a few more days or weeks. I will call them on Monday because they close on 5PM and it is Friday.

October 7, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
11:30AM Up and about, took Bella outside, looks like it is going to be another nice day. Cloudy but some sun. I slept good last night. I didn't sleep very well the previous night and was tired all day. Slept 4.5 hours the previous night but slept almost 9 hours today.
2:00PM Put a couple loaves of bread into the oven. Also cut up a squash and fried it with pepperoni and egg. Had a cup of coffee.
2:30PM Took the bread out of the oven. These loaves are small so I think I am going to have to mix up some bread and back a couple large loaves and have some bread dough to back some pepperoni roles.
3:00PM Set up the TV DVD to record the WVU/TCU game that comes on FS1 at 3:30.
3:15PM Just checked the FS1 channel and the Kansas game us still on and only in the 3rd quarter so don't think it will be over by 3:30 when the WVU game starts.
3:40PM WVU/TCU game started.
6:45PM TCU beat WVU 31 - 24, wasn't a good game for WVU.
7:00PM Called Barb and we talked for a short time, she went back to watching Jeopardy.
9:00PM Not much going on tonight, had a couple hamburgers for supper.

October 8, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
11:00AM Telephone rang and it was Carlos from across the street. He wanted to borrow the lawnmower because the man that was suppose to mow his lawn has not come and done it and he has to go back on the road tomorrow morning and will be gone for a couple weeks. He is an over the road, long haul truck driver.

2:00PM Looked around the bands for a while, heard a guy in MN talking to a guy in Orlando and an Alaskan station in North Pole, AK. I could hear the NL7 and I probably could have worked him if he were listening for me.
3:00PM Heard N7CUC (Sam) on the local repeater (146.685) and talked for a lengthy time. Sam likes to rag chew like me.
6:30PM Listened to 3.832Mhz for locals talking but I did not hear anyone ID so I don't know who was talking even though they did mention other hams that I was familiar with so it is the frequency that Sam told me about.

What I used to do would really be great just to see what they can do with computers that we have today.

7:30AM Up and about, took Bella outside. Took a shower and got ready to go to breakfast at Brunch Box. Joe was there and got to catch up a little. Met Joe's wife and we talked for a while. His wife is a very nice lady. I gave her my address and invited her and Joe to drop by if they get a chance. Talked to a couple other hams there, KG4PWF and N7CUC. Met a couple others but I didn't know most of them. There was about 20 to 25 present. It is a real nice place to eat. The waitress was really nice.
10:00AM Went by Goin Postal and sent my FT911 to Yaesu. Cost me $49.55 for shipping and $1000 insurance. That is the maximum Fed Ex will insure a package. Goin Postal said they would send me the tracking number via email later today.
12:00PM Home and tired, not used to getting up that early. Will probably snooze until I catch up with my sleep.
3:00PM Called Goin Postal about the tracking number and she said that they only send emails late in the day so if I don't get it by this evening I should call back.

12:30PM Went to Publix to shop. Found some frozen bread. Will have to put out one loaf and let it thaw and see if I can make some pepperoni rolls this evening.
2:00PM Back home, put things away and went to check the mail. Electric bill and my dipole center connector came.
7:00PM Talked to Barb, found that the sound had been turned down on my phone so that is the reason I had not gotten any calls for the last two days.
7:45PM Millie called and we talked for about 15 minutes. The frozen bread had thawed out sitting in the Florida room so brought it in and made about 8 pepperoni rolls. Letting the rolls rise.
10:00PM Got the pepperoni rools out of the oven and had a few of them. The bread is great, just not enough pepperoni in them. Will have to go to the store and get some more pepperoni before I try again.

1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
9:30AM Received call from Watson Clinic about my prescription to Express Script and Watson Clinic will change to amount to agree to what Express Script has on record.
10:00AM Took Bella outside, she was especially stubborn this morning. She just did not want to listen to me. Gave her hell but I don't figure that will do me any good. She has a mind of her own.
3:00PM Talked to N7CUC on the repeater. He said he had a couple of music videos on You Tube. I will look to see if I can find them.
5:00PM Having a lot of trouble with windows on my computer. Every time I get an automatic Windows update it takes me several days to get the damn thing straightened out. I can go to web sites using Edge but then Edge locks up and I have to restart the computer over again. It seems that it will work OK before I try to go on the internet but after going on the Internet and then go back to other software it also locks up. I think Windows 10 tries to do things that I have to find and remove before the computer starts working like it should again. I think that maybe during black Friday or around Christmas sales I will try to get myself a new computer.
7:00PM Talked to Barb...Dana went to PA to take care of Dwayne, seems his kidney stones are acting up, so she left Barb on her own to go run after Dwayne.

2:00PM Betty Moran called and we chatted for a while. She said that the new owners have not moved in yet. It looks to her that they are doing some sort of remodeling of the house. They got the house $17,000 under the fair market value of the house, according to the Realtor and according to the bank when they gave me a line of credit on the house. The bank appraised the house at $163,000.00 so they thought the house was well worth what they appraised it at. Betty also said that the condemned house has been repainted and they hauled away the old wooden fence that had fallen down.
4:00PM Les just came by and wanted to borrow a screw driver to get into his house. They have been gone since Irma came through and just got back and they had accidentally locked themselves out of the MH. They finally got the door open and Les brought back my screw drivers and he came in and I showed him my radio shack. He was amassed at the size of my MH.
7:00PM Called Barb and we talked for about 30 minutes.

10:00AM Note: The last couple days I have been driving around the MH Park and in the back section there are some very poor kept Motor Homes. Some of them really show their age. The park was establish, so I have been told in late 1969/70 after a hurricane and was built by HUD for survivors. Later it was sold to a company or individual and has gone through several parties since then. The part I live in which is near the front gate are well kept units, luckily I have one of the better MH in the park.

4:00PM Mowed the grass, took me a little while, had to sit down several times but got it finished.
5:00PM Got all the things ordered for the antenna, an insulator, a connector for the 450 ohm line and 50 ft of 450 ohm feed line. I need need the 4:1 balun to show up and I have to go to Lowe's and pick up 150 ft of awg 14 stranded wire.
7:00PM Called Barb. Talked for a while. She says that my name doesn't come on her caller ID any more, just my number. I checked my phone and dialed my house phone and my name comes up on my caller ID on my TV screen so it must be something in Barb's phone that is different.

October 16, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
10:00AM Up and about, I am very tired and my legs feel heavy and weak. I think mowing the grass really takes it out of me. Going to lay back down for a while.
12:00PM Bella is really getting nervous and whats to go outside, Took Bella out and it is very warm and I did walk around some to pick up from Bella. Legs feel a little better. I wish there was some way to exercise my legs without walking. Walking really hurts my back.
1:00PM Fixed myself some cereal and a cup of coffee. Feel a little better. I just don't have any energy. I have to push just to do the normal every day things that have to be done. Most of it, I know is mental and just pushing so I will get things done every though I don't want to do them. Have to make a trip to Lowe;'s to get a few things before I get the things I have ordered to put up the new antenna. That is going to be a task to get finished and I hope it works. I have faith and think it will be a good antenna when I get it installed.
1:30PM Called the VA Lakeland to check on my appointment for November 18, 2017 since the 18th is a Saturday. I thought the appointment was with Podiatry but it is with another department for a fitting of diabetic shoes and shocks and they do have appointments on Saturdays.

10:00AM Up and about, took Bella outside.

2:00PM Fixed myself an omelet w/cheese and onion. Also had a toasted bagel.

1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
10:00AM Up and about, took Bella outside, it is a beautiful day. Temperatures are great and there is a slight breeze. This is the kind of weather that Florida brags about.
12:00PM Had some bacon and bagel w/cream cheese for lunch. 1:00PM Talked to K4QW on the repeater and thought I recognized the voice and when I found out it was Chris ex AC7CL and he had gotten his new vanity call just this morning. 4:00PM Didn't do much except talked on repeater for a while with Sam. We talked mostly about antennas. I am getting ready to put up the new loop antenna if and when I get all the parts together. I will have to make a list of the things I will need locally and go to Lowe's and get everything at one time when I am ready to put up the antenna. I really hope it works out OK. Have worked with loop and rhombic antennas before but as receiving antennas and very few times as transmitting antennas. A loop works great as a receiving antenna but I hope it will radiate as well as they receive. I hope I don't get any interaction with the roof of the MH. 7:00PM Barb called and we talked for a while.

October 21, 2017
1:00AM Meds, injection, getting ready to go to bed.
11:00AM Up and about, next door neighbor woke me and Bella up around 8AM. They were banging around between the two MHs. I didn't look but they were there for nearly an hour doing something. Really didn't get any sleep after they started banging.
12:00PM Had some cereal. Expecting to go to the grocery store this afternoon.
4:00PM Took a shower and got dressed to go to the store.
6:00PM Gone to Winn Dixie to get some groceries. 7:20PM Barb called while I was checking out at Winn Dixie, the bill was $220.16. Seems like my groceries get higher each time I go to the store.
8:00PM Putting the groceries away. That is the hardest part. Got all the refrigerated and frozen food away, will get everything else away later.
10:50PM Millie called and hung up before I got to the phone.
11:00PM Called Millie back and we talked for over an half hour. My phone when I talk to her seems to always have an echo on me and it drives me crazy because I hear everything I say come back to me.
