Good thoughts for Whims and her family right now.
Bro visited mom at work, was looking sharp. Clean, short-sleeved shirt, solid mindset, has a gig telemarketing. It was good for her to see him in decent shape for a change.
I want to sleep the whole weekend away. Just float in limbo, comfortably. Talk to some good friends, relax with the Newtie-boy. Maybe toss in a loaf or two of fresh baked bread and honey.
Got a free lunch donated to us at work yesterday… Lenny’s gave the company a platter of three big ol’ subs. Italian, Turkey and Veggie. I can dig a free lunch… ECN also gave me a bag of M&Ms for dessert.
I got to talk to MP for about a minute yesterday. It was nice, but far too short.
Looks like tropical storm Arlene is going to miss South Florida. – Rainy Weekend here.
… FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL FRIDAY EVENING…
THE FLOOD WATCH CONTINUES FOR
* SOUTH FLORIDA
* UNTIL FRIDAY EVENING
* TROPICAL STORM ARLENE IS FORECAST TO MOVE ACROSS THE GULF OF MEXICO WEST OF SOUTH FLORIDA THROUGH FRIDAY. THIS WILL CONTINUE A VERY FAVORABLE PATTERN FOR HEAVY RAINS ACROSS ALL OF SOUTH FLORIDA… BUT ESPECIALLY THE SOUTHWEST GULF COASTAL AREAS INCLUDING NAPLES AND MARCO ISLAND. THREE TO FIVE ADDITIONAL INCHES OF RAINFALL CAN BE EXPECTED ACROSS PARTS OF SOUTHWEST FLORIDA… ESPECIALLY WHERE SHOWERS AND STORMS EMBEDDED IN RAINBANDS FROM ARLENE REPEATEDLY MOVE ACROSS THE SAME AREAS. EVEN ACROSS THE ATLANTIC COASTAL COUNTIES INCLUDING METRO MIAMI… FORT LAUDERDALE… AND WEST PALM BEACH… AN ADDITIONAL 1 TO 3 INCHES IS LIKELY OVER THE NEXT 24 TO 36 HOURS WITH ISOLATED HIGHER AMOUNTS TO 5 INCHES POSSIBLE.
* THESE RAINFALL AMOUNTS IN A SHORT TIME WILL CAUSE EXTENSIVE FLOODING OF ROADWAYS AND UNDERPASSES AS WELL AS LOW LYING AND POORLY DRAINED AREAS.
A FLOOD WATCH MEANS THAT CONDITIONS ARE FAVORABLE FOR HEAVY RAINFALL AND FLOODING. PERSONS ANTICIPATING POTENTIAL PROBLEMS FROM FLOODING SHOULD CHECK PREPAREDNESS AND BE READY FOR QUICK ACTION SHOULD FLOODING BEGIN OR A WARNING BE ISSUED.
DURING A FLOOD WATCH… HAVE A PLAN TO DEAL WITH POSSIBLE FLOODING. IF YOU LIVE IN A HIGHLY FLOOD-PRONE AREA TAKE PRECAUTIONS TO PROTECT PROPERTY INCLUDING HAVING SAND BAGS ON HAND AND MOVING YOUR VEHICLE TO A LESS FLOOD-PRONE AREA. HEED THE ADVICE OF LOCAL OFFICIALS AND EVACUATE IF ASKED….

Moment of Lyric :
Arrest this man
He talks in maths
He buzzes like a fridge
He’s like a detuned radio.
Newt at my computer desk, being a lovey while I type. His nose and ears still make me think of “easter bunny pink”.
Some more assorted pictures of Newt and things.
Profile, as I whisper in his ear. He’s the only one who understands what I’m saying.
The only real trace of the house that was in my back yard that remains are the two cables for phone and television hanging down from the upper right. They don’t call these things steam shovels anymore, do they? I think it runs on diesel. Would it be called a Petrol-shovel now?
Nighttime Newt. Waiting on the futon for me to finish up, and clear space on my computer desk again. Sometimes he’s not so courteous, and just lays down on whatever I’m working on. Upside-down post-it note “landmines” will distract him for a bit, when that happens.
Everyone carries umbrellas to the bus stop this time of year. I guess they all wear jeans, too!
