Terrific Thursday's Travails, Toil, & Triumphs!

Last Update: Sep 7, 2023

Hello everyone here in Wealthy Affiliate!

After a Wednesday full of work, I was quite surprised when Monica told me she was going to drop off a home cooked dinner.

We talked for a while, and it was a GREAT end to the busy day!

While we were talking, her mother needed something, so she left, but she came back later one more time to talk some more, so it was a nice ending to a Wonderful Wednesday.

She said that she would come back, and unbelievably, she did! I was quite surprised!

Needless to say, after the hamburger casserole that she brought me, it was delicious and a pleasant end to a spectacular day!

I woke up THIS morning at 5:45 am. I was refreshed. I took care of a few other tasks, and then it was time to start my day like I ALWAYS do, by diving into the vibrant Wealthy Affiliate Community!

Kitty even showed up briefly to assist me in this endeavor as well.

Even if she doesn't stay around long, she is still a huge confidence boost.

With the first foray over, it was time to go outside and capture images of the new much cooler day, including the title image.

We were just approaching 60 degrees at the time I captured these!

We are possibly going to reach 89 degrees for the high, but that is still not too bad.

The day is definitely off to an excellent start.

Shortly after I went back inside, Monica called me and we talked for over two hours.

I ventured back outside for another break, and while I was out there, I captured a couple more images of my adopted outdoor cat.

It might be a female, but I am not sure. I was still talking to Monica while I was outside too!

I captured another image when the cat seemed to be sleeping too!

While Monica and I were still talking, I caught a glimpse of Rocky on the power line. (This is for you, Paul!)

He quickly scampered away too--he instinctively knew that he was outgunned!

I avoided any controversial action. Then, as I prepare to go get paid for the late afternoon locksmith job, I filled out the deposit ticket for yesterday morning's locksmith job, I also added the Pizza Hut check that arrived in the mail too.

Hopefully, when I go over there, I will have a third check too!

I left to head over there full of anticipation! The check was not there, so at least now I have TWO checks to expect in the future!

From there, I went to the bank to deposit the two checks that I already had!

After that, I headed over to the locksmith shop house to check on things.

Nothing awry there, I am happy to report!

I stayed there for about 20 minutes, and then it was off to my final errand!

Mission accomplished!

When I made it back to the eBay house, it wasn't long before my buddy Kevin called on his way to work at the railroad up in Lincoln, Nebraska!

While I was chatting with him, I caught another image of the neighbor's flag too!

Monica called and I talked with her some more too! Then she had to let me go, since she was at the school waiting for Samantha to get out so that she could go to work at Sonic tonight!

With no new work materializing at the time of this post, I will continue to work with my eBay listings! This is a never-ending endeavor!

I also plan to do a little bit of writing too!

This will be the bulk of my Wealthy Affiliate research portion of the day!

I will continue working on things this evening, and I will rely on the furry assistant present--Kitty!

The Blog Dogs continue to assist from afar, so they are definitely not forgotten either!

Even though they are at their rightful home once again, they are still an integral part of my day!

The Kansas City Chiefs will start off the NFL, season, so I plan to watch that game!

Nice day for you, Jeff, especially the home-cooked dinner!

Rocky's looking good, but power lines are dangerous, especially if he starts chewing on one.

Several years ago, a squirrel got on top of the roof of my house from a nearby tree and tried to get in by chewing a hole in the lead flashing around the chimney.

I had the tree branches removed and the chimney repaired, but the squirrel climbed up the side of the house on a gutter downspout (or whatever you call it, Lol). So, I trapped the squirrel in a cage and relocated it far away in a nice park. Haha ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Frank ๐Ÿค˜๐ŸŽธ

Thanks, Frank! That was quite a surprise!

That will have to be the risk that Rocky takes!

I'm glad you were able to relocate Rocky's cousin safely.

Happy Frisatsu!


Haha, me too, Jeff. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฟ๏ธ

Happy Frisatsu! ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿป

Frank ๐Ÿค˜๐ŸŽธ

You bet, Frank! ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿค˜๐ŸŽธ

Happy Thursday, my friend.

Hope you have a beautiful upcoming weekend. Just make sure you find time for self-care after a busy week.

Is there a movie theatre or drive-in theater near by to pass the time. Let Monica treat (lol). She has beautiful eyes and a nice full head of hair. Not bad, Jeff.

Is this the same lady who had knee and hand surgery. Wow! She's resilient


I always manage to find time for self care, Rachele!

This Frisatsu should be a very good one. Monica won't treat, and there is nothing in the current movies that interest me. That's why I have Amazon Prime on my 60" TV in the bedroom.

She has had a total of 7 surgeries over the last 4-5 years. She is resilient. That is for sure!


HI there, Jeff.

Excuse me! Nothing tops a 60" TV in the bedroom. Despite its popularity, movie theatres are getting a bad wrap in todays world. The movie I saw last was "Creed" with Michael B. Gordon and Silvester Stallone. It was a great movie and I would recommend it to anyone.

Being in the movie niche must be kind of cool, I'd think if you are passionate about movies, One my favorite past time is bingeing on X-files, Law and Order or re-runs of Buffy the Vampire. Those were the days/ the

That being said, nothing beats watching movies at home with a nice cold beer and some popcorn (JK , I don't drink , only on holidays). And if you have internet access then it can be even more enjoyable since you have access to the latest films online!

Does Kansas have Drive-in Theaters? They used to be big deal in Jersey back in the day. In fact, that was one of my first dates. I invited my boyfriend. We watched Casablanca with Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman. What a classic. Have you seen it!

By the way, you must feel like you are at a local theatre. Gone are the days of movie theatres. They are for people who want to get out of the house, I guess. When my daughter, Michele, was in middle school she would be invited to movie marathons and we would watch new movie releases back to back. One of the most boring things I've ever done.

That's all I got for now.


We used to have a drive-in decades ago. It is long gone now.

I am always behind the curve on movies, but I will watch them eventually on my Big screen! Money is tight for most people, and I love being able to watch them at home!



Right now the Drive-in theater in Jersey has been replaced with a mega mall. There's none in sight around here, either. Home theater is the next best thing, for sure.

With the amazing sound systems and home theater projectors available, it's almost like you're at the Drive-in.

From surround sound to 4K Blu-ray players and Dolby Atmos, all of these technologies are designed to give you an immersive experience in your own living room. Plus, with streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, etc., you can have access to thousands of movies and shows from the comfort of your own home.

For those looking for a great movie night experience, they should consider investing in a home theater system. With all the options available, they're sure to find something that fits your budget and lifestyle. Whether it's just adding a new sound system or going all out on a complete package, you'll be able to feel like you're at the theater from the comfort of your own couch.

For those on a budget, don't worry - there are plenty of options available that won't break the bank. They can look into things like streaming devices or sound bars for an easier setup and less expensive price tag. Plus, with all the content out there now, you'll have plenty of choices for what to watch.

For those looking for the ultimate home theater experience, investing in a projector and surround sound system is the way to go. It can be more expensive than other options but it's worth it if you're looking for that true movie night feeling. You'll be able to experience all the sights and sounds of your favorite movies and shows without having to leave your house.

No matter what option you choose, at-home movie nights are the perfect way to relax and escape reality for a little while. Whether you're going all out with a projector or simply streaming on your laptop, just kick back, put on your comfy clothes, pop some popcorn and enjoy!

I'm sticking with my 43" for now.

There are likely a few DI theatres around, but they are, sadly a thing of the past for the most part!

My TV is just plain jane, but since it is right in front of my bed, it is plenty for me!

I just have Amazon Prime and Free Roku! Since I usually get to bed sometimes early and sometimes late, it is more than enough for Kitty and I!

I have a few home theater systems that are in storage from auctions, but it is plenty for me with just the TV!

Back in the day when I was around a family, a HTS was the way to go, but not now, and not at these horrendous prices.

I can still escape from Reality at a much lower cost.

Your 43" is not bad at all.


Your crew get is getting bigger now, Jeff!

Any updates on which title you chose for your suspended license saga? But if it's a surprise, I'll just wait till you announce it.

Don't forget about the Chiefs tonight. But I think Kelce might not start. ๐Ÿˆ ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿถ๐Ÿฑ๐Ÿถ

Isaiah ๐Ÿ™‚

I think that it would seem so, Isaiah!

They were all tied, so I might go with one of my own making, Isaiah!

I am trying to get that on Amazon Prime, but I don't see it there! ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ˜น๐Ÿถ๐Ÿˆ

I'll figure something out though!


Hi Jeff.
Mission accomplished!

Enjoy your evening.

Slavka ๐Ÿ‘‹

Thanks, Slavka, and the same to you, my friend!




Glad last night turned out for you, Jeff! And it looks like today was pleasant as well. I think the new kitty may know where itโ€™s safe to hang out. Itโ€™s amazing how intuitive they can be. Hope you enjoy the rest of your day!

Susan ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ˜น๐Ÿถ

Thanks, Susan! I have to agree with your assessment!

I hope you had a GREAT Thursday!


Thanks, Jeff! Most appreciated and right back at ya!

Susan ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ˜น๐Ÿถ

You're very welcome, Susan!

Have a Great evening!
