Christmas tree on the bay from this morning’s walkies
Walkies on the bay with Sean M this morning.
Heading home a little early tonight – a few inches of snow, and I’d rather get home on my own in a more safe and sane ride. Since I left a little bit after 4:30, I should be home by 6:45 or so.
Hopped the Silver Spring red line to Fort Totten – Green line to the 904 line home.
Maybe we’ll do a little distribution of fairy lights tonight? BHK got most of the holiday shopping covered… I’m impressed!

So, It’s August! Took some walkies up to the bay with BHK… was a little underwhelmed by Blondies beachwich – the service was superb, but the red velvet cupcake and the peanut butter cookie were both bleh.
I feel like a were-gator, all sleepy and a bit grumpy.< ?XML:NAMESPACE PREFIX = [default] http://purl.org/atom/ns# NS = "http://purl.org/atom/ns#" />

BHK and I were just going to bed last night (at about 1am) and we heard what we thought was a car alarm – BHK at first thought it was the love cube. After checking, it turned out to be a car horn. A moment later, we heard an explosion – BHK asked me if it was a gunshot – I thought it was a transformer blowing up – Then the fire trucks and police started up the road. As it turns out, a company vehicle caught fire a few doors down. The first two pictures below are compliments of the North Beach fire Department, the last is Newtcam during the first firetruck to go by – nice way to get a time stamp, I guess. (Chris next door forwarded me the article)
After that, BHK and I were up for a few hours, unable to sleep through the excitement – a police car called out to the lookie-loos to return to their residences – I tuned in to the Police/ Fire scanner for SOMD while BHK looked outside at the billowing smoke.

WHILE UNITS WERE CLEARING A MEDICAL CALVERT ADVISED RESCUE-1 THAT A LOCAL ASSIGNMENT WAS BEING ALERTED ON THE MAIN CHANNEL FOR AN AUTO FIRE ON 2ND STREET NB.
FIRE CAPTAIN DILLON AOL TO FIND A VA N WELL ON ITS WAY. RESCUE-1 MADE QUICK WORK OF THE FIRE. UNITS CLEARED SHORTLY AFTER. THE TOWER ENDED UP OVER IN SHADY SIDE JUST A WHILE LATER FOR THE REPORTED DWELLING FIRE.
Got my 401k comp check from my last gig – That worked out well. I told a little fib to BHk, and said that I expected about $500, and we got about eight times that amount. (I was planning for about six times.)
Went to Annapolis and promptly deposited that little windfall in the bank – then stopped off at the Amish Farmer’s Market for breakfast. BHK and I split two – ate half and then swapped Chocolate Chip Pancakes, home fries, cheddar cheese omelet, wheat toast – I let BHK eat up all of the bacon, of course.
Opted out of going to a movie – nothing we want to see just this moment.. maybe next week when it’s less crowded. We did get a few other goodies at the farmer’s market – cheese, strawberries, trinket’s for our 4’th of July cake (gummy stars and confetti sprinkles), a blueberry fritter for me for tomorrow’s breakfast (or tonight’s midnight snack)
BHK remembered that I was due for shots (skipped when em was here) and we went there for a bit. Adam called, and mentioned that he was coming down for the 3rd’s fireworks, an was bringing Anna – so, it was a quick trip to the grocery to be sure he had a full belly.
I was feeling pretty out of it at that point, so I rested in the car. Going to nap now that we’re home. sweet dreams, dear journal.
