Terrific Thursday Toil & Travails Truly Tend Towards Total Triumph!

Last Update: June 23, 2022

Hello everyone here in Wealthy Affiliate!

I was up early again today, but for some reason, even though I feel like I slept very well, I am still very tired. Nevertheless, I dove right into the Wealthy Affiliate Community right away, like I do every day because it is now a habit!

When I got that done, this time without Kitty's help, I was still feeling tired, so I laid down.

I napped off and on for a couple of hours, and then I heard the rain storms come in.

I was just getting up when the power flickered once, and then went off altogether, and stayed off for a little more than an hour! These are the rain images I was able to grab from the front door.

It was coming down at a good clip.

There were high winds too! Finally, just after 11:30 am, the power was back on, and I got right down to business, also feeling a bit refreshed from my extended nap!

Now it was time to try to finish a post in my book promotion website as part of my daily Wealthy Affiliate Research session!

My heavier workload has been impeding a bit on this progress.

I still have not seen Kitty, but for a quick glimpse, but I do know the Blog Dogs were ready to eat after the power outage.

They did not like being in the dark. I'll try to find Kitty at some point and get an image of her for today's blog post too.

I also, not surprisingly, have not heard from Monica since Tuesday night. I guess our last conversation didn't set well with her, but that's okay, this occurs now and then, and I am not going to let it upset my progress.

Now that the rain seems to have stopped for a while, I might try to get out and about, but I'm not to sure about that at this point. I'll play things by ear.

I took some images anyway!

I tried to catch the sun in the above sky image, but it was blinding.

I sat outside and had a beer while I was talking to my buddy Kevin. Then I went inside and fried up some pork chops along with some mushroom pieces. Monica had given me two packages of them on Tuesday, the last time I have spoken with her so far.

I made four others, but am not sure where I filed the image at, but you get the idea! I gave some bones and some gristle to the Blog Dogs for a treat!

Star was ready for more! It wasn't long after that when I received a late emergency locksmith call for Pizza Hut. The new regional manager as of an hour or so ago, needed my services immediately, but did not have the master key! I installed some temporary cylinders and gave him four keys and took the other cylinder to get ready to remaster them when he has the Master key tomorrow.


I rode the motorcycle for this quick emergency job, and while I was out, also gassed it up too. It was a reverse picture since I don't yet have a Go-Pro Camera!

Anyhow, I sent Monica pictures of the pork chops and she though that was great according to her return text, but she still hasn't talked to me. Oh well, at least she responded!

The rest of the evening will be spent on the computer, but for right now, I will try to enjoy some nicer weather before the rain comes again!

I HOPE THAT EVERYONE HERE HAS HAD ANOTHER EXCELLENT THURSDAY, WHICH ALSO HAPPENS TO BE ANOTHER FRISATSU'S EVE! THEY SURE DO COME AROUND FAST! I TRULY ENJOYED MINE!

Definitely not bad Jeff!

I can't complain too much about my start to Frisatsu... much cooler temperatures and a few thunderstorms rolled through!

Although today is a bit hotter, but nothing like heat we were experiencing recently!

We had a little rain today too, Nick!

I had Samantha on the roof of her aunt's trailer fixing a hole in the roof. She did very well.

I'm glad it is not so bad. Same here!

No rain here yet today but things are getting darker so I haven't given up hope yet!!

Looks like she is doing a fantastic job up on the roof Jeff... but why didn't you send the PSD up there instead?!?!🤣

Happy to hear that the extreme heat hasn't returned to you as well yet my friend!!

Wehad some sprinkles early while I was outside at the picnic table having a beer. Apparently, it is 88 degrees now, but it doesn't feel that way!

The PSD was tiling floors at the house, plus, that roof would have NEVER held her! 😲🙀

Samantha weighs 90 pounds, and that was why she was picked. I weigh 169!

Believe me, the extreme heat will be back in short order, but I am enjoying every minute of this that I can get.

We got up to a maximum of about 85 today, but then the dark skies delivered and the rain has been lashing it down for the last couple of hours dropping the temp to the mid 60's!!

The PSD is tiling floors?? So she is actually making herself useful??

And I had a feeling that the roof would never had held her, but it could have been an amusing video to stick on your YouTube channel!!🤣🤣

I'm with you on enjoying every minute of the cooler days and nights right now... it will surely change again very soon my friend!

That's awesome, Nick! We reached 80 today. I'm going to be very happy with that result because it will be a lot hotter soon! I'm glad you got cooled off!

Yes, she seems to be, and I will give her the benefit of the doubt.

No, she never would have gotten up there to begin with, my friend!

I am loving every minute of it, because I know that things will be very hot soon!

We are in the low 70's so far today Jeff, and with more thunderstorms predicted later, I doubt we will reach much higher!

Happy to hear that she IS making herself useful, but I know a few tricks that would more than likely get her up on a roof!!

Stay cool my friend!🥶😎

Same here today, Nick! I'm looking forward to a relaxing Sunday portion!

I doubt the poor roof could withstand the stress. We just fixed it after all!🤣😹

I'll try my best to remain cool!

Great to hear Jeff!

I'm sure that the roof would need a little bit more reinforcing than just some tape my friend!!

I get it, Nick, but NOT my roof! She had a good sized hole in it, and had not Samantha and myself stepped up, her aunt would likely still be walking around scratchig her head, like she was when I talked to her about it.

That’s a decent downpour you had, I guess Kitty bolted and found somewhere safe.
Just spent the last 12 hours in hospital with more tests, good news , bad news and news that made me feel like going ballistic.
Will fill you in later with all the nasty nitty gritty details.

Once again Vietnam has not failed to totally pee me off and make me feel like only money counts here. Once I calm down I will write a blog about it.

Anyway, I’m home and relaxing and looking at WA stuff for the first time today.

I see you also caught up with Monica, well done..

It was, indeed, Stevoi! Apparently enough to knock the power out too.

Sorry to hear about your day. Keep me posted, and some more prayers for you to help you deal with things! 🙏🙏 (also a beer or two to help take the edge off 🍺🍺)

I'll wait for the blog post, but it seems that here in the US, things are essentially the same way.

I was very happy to have caught up with Monica, and I also talked to her on the phone and saw her before she went to work too!

Love the Sonic the hedgehog image!

Sorry to hear that you have yet again had another unpleasant experience in the hospital there Steveoi...

It reminds me of a few trips to the hospitals in Brazil when I first arrived...

Keep your spirits up and take care my friend..

Maybe chewing gum..but definitely no beer until I get this gnarly monster in my body under control. It will be at least 1 year no alcohol….or it will stuff up my liver. That’s what hep b does.

Ribeyes I can eat, it’s just the liquid refreshment that is on hold.
My god, after 1 year I will be as thin as a rake. I can already feel the change upon me..lol.

One year mate!! Sorry to hear about that...

But we all must do what we must do... stay positive my friend!

Wow, Stevoi! You look like one of those Mask wall hangings now, my friend! Hang in there!

Ever since I quit going, Nick, I have felt much better, and there were no worries concerning money in that department either!😹

A good day, Jeff, and a response, that is also good. Sometimes that is all we get and it is enough.

I would say your week is going well.

Yes, indeed, Alex, but I also got a pleasant surprise later in the evening! I just posted about it!

I hope your Frisatsu has gotten off to an excellent start!

You need to send some of that rain down my way, it's getting pretty dry here.
Reply

I would love to, Cynthia! I suspected that you all would have already had some by now! We are starting to get some evening storms in right now.

It would be nice, but all the rain is staying to the north of us. I'd love an evening storm about now. 🌧

Oh, okay! We had a minor one roll in headed east when it left! Maybe you'll get it!

Nope, just lots of humidity and temps in the mid 90's. Tomorrows forecast is for 99 F degrees.

Enjoy that rain!

I have, Cynthia! It is still around 77 today, but is supposed to climb into the mid 90s this afternoon before dropping back into the mid 80s tomorrow! Hang in there. I hope you get some relief soon!
