Timid Thursday Turns Triumphantly Terrific!

Last Update: May 12, 2022


Hello everyone here in Wealthy Affiliate!

I managed to get up relatively early this morning, likely because Kitty was meowing in my ear. She wanted food, of course!

I wouldn't have minded staying in bed since I had been at the house last night until after 10:30pm. I rode the motorcycle over to Monica's (our former home together).


I was doing my best to remove a Sparrows' nest from her stove exhaust vent.

I removed all the screws around the vent after using a car opening tool to remove good chunks of debris that the birds had stuff in there to make the nest. I need to remove the dilapidated vent to get to the nest which feels like it is down in the wall some.

The problem is that I cannot remove the vent until I have a replacement, and some putty too.

I hung around there for a few hours, doing a load of my laundry I had taken over. Monica and the two kids were at an awards ceremony for the PSD at the school, and they didn't get back home until almost 10pm.

She didn't seem too enthused to see me, but then it could be because she has not been getting enough sleep lately.

Enough about that now. I tended to the Blog Dogs and Kitty, and then dove right into the Wealthy Affiliate Community!

Shadow had a little more appetite, and seemed to be more active today as opposed to yesterday, but still laid around.

Star enjoyed looking outside and barking at anything that moved. Kitty apparently retreated back into the bedroom, likely under the bed! I was alone to do my necessary work today, although Star could be dreaming up another Blog post.

Next it was more website work time, which has recently become the focal point of my current Wealthy Affiliate research.

I completed another post on it today, and am also delving into some more information concerning the menu issue.

While taking a break from this, I decided to enroll in the VA website to see what veteran's benefits that I might qualify for. Talk about a challenge there--I think I can safely get on the website now, but didn't get much else accomplished on that yet, but I will try again tomorrow.

The day has been beautiful but extremely hot--seems like mid-nineties.

I ended up lying under the ceiling fan watching a little TV to rest a little before I got back into the swing of things again. After about a half hour, I got back to work around the eBay house.

Shadow still seems a bit lethargic, but he is at least moving around with his sister, so that is better than before.

They won't sit still long enough for me to get a good image. I did finally get an image of Kitty, but she wasn't very cooperative today for the camera either!

I have also gotten the motorcycle ready to go for a ride this evening.


I'd love to go see Monica, but since the PSD is off today, that is likely out of the question. Who knows--I might do it anyway. I need to finish my work over there, but only if she has the supplies I told her about. Since we haven't talked today yet, it is likely that she has forgotten.

No matter what, the rest of the evening will also be spent on the computer doing more website work, and I will also likely be on the phone with one of my buddies.

The day has still been triumphant in my book!

I HOPE THAT EVERYONE'S THURSDAY WAS TOTALLY TRIUMPHANT! IT IS ALSO ANOTHER FRISATSU'S EVE! LET'S MAKE THIS FRISATSU THE BEST ONE YET!

Young Shadow seems to have reovered for the most part, Nick!

Yes, Rewards ad nauseum, and she is still just as immature and petulant as always! Mom and her traded in the ill-fated, never-should-have-happened Jeep and traded it in on a 2019 Hyundai! So now they are paying even more for a car that has only 5,000 miles less on it than Monica's 2016 Ford. It does not bode well for young Samantha since mom is now indebted as a"Co-signer for anothe SIX years.

She did this behind my back again. She has no clue what she is doing and is being manipulated by her precocious older daughter!

The temps seem to have dropped since it is overcast right now, but we shall see! Have an excellent Friday portion yourself, my friend!

Happy to hear that Shadow is improving there Jeff...

But... what the heck is Monica doing??

That sounds absolutely ridiculous.. and I do feel very sorry for young Samantha...

Wrapped around the PSD's finger would be a polite way to put it!!

What a mess my friend and try to stay strong and positive ok...

Shadow thanks you, Nick! 🐶

I have no idea what Monica is doing. This is the PSD's Fourth vehicle in 2.5 years. Before Monica went behind my back in October of 2020 and co-signed for the 2008 Jeep Wrangler with 120K miles on it for a WHOPPING $23,000+, plus, we had a discussion and agreed at THAT time (so I thought) that she should get another sensible sedan to replace the car that she totalled with 1.5 MONTHS of getting it. (that was a loss ot them of $6K already.)

I came home from a Trump Rally, and there it was in the driveway!

I walked out on her right then because I was livid! We had been planning on having a dangerous tree branch cut pack over the driveway and then going in together on a dual carport for $3k! All that went right out the window!

Now for SIX more years, se will be responsible for this 2019 car which is THREE years newer than her own--and ONLY car.

The last couple of years have been nightmarish, and this will only go further now. Plus, let's not forget about young Jacob, who will also want a car within the next 7-8 years!

Monica does not have the finance background to understand what the PSD has gotten her to do, and also let's not forget the over $2K spent on Dogtilla, and the year her daughter lived in an apartment "on her own", which was heavily subsizied by Momma!

A nightmare, indeed! OOPS, I think I might have just wrtten another eBook!😳

I will persevere, but this might be another nail in the coffin to our reconciliation!

I love my canine companions so Shadow will always be at the forefront of my thoughts here Jeff...

As for the rest of your issues there.. l fully understand where you are coming from my friend... I have spent the few days in England that I had trying to resolve a feud between my father and brother without upsetting my mother in the process... no easy feat!!

I truly believe that everything will work out for the best in the future... it's never plain sailing though and at the end of the day it is what it is...

A great start to your next eBook though Jeff and never give up persevering my friend!!

Yes, I DID get a bit carried away!

Happy to hear that the youngster is doing better Jeff!

Where family feuds are concerned there is never an easy solution... but at least I believe that I helped a bit!

It will all get better with time!

And as for getting carried away... you my friend, never!!!

Perhaps you are right, Nick! I just hate all the precious memories and minutes I could have had and will never get back!

We always have to do what we can to push through!

HOT in NY too but I was tired after the drive. I had vending machine pretzels and Reece's peanut butter cup (protein) for sustinence on the way. My birthday feast! I'm going to shop for groceries ( healthy food for me) and cut the grass. Whoo hoo. Guess I'll celebrate Sun and Mon with friends.

Have a good weekend!

I'm surprised that it is HOT up there in the PRNY, Debbi! Try and stay cool and don't overwork yourself, my friend!

Enjoy your Frisatsu, as well!

This is going to be a welcome Frisatsu, Jeff!

Removing bird's nests from exhaust vents...
I wonder if there's a niche there?

I think working with locks sounds easier.

I hope shadow comes around, he's been sluggish for a couple of days now... I thought it was just the heat...

Sounds like your website is moving forward.... Keep it rolling!

Nothing like an evening bike ride after a hot day, I hope you enjoyed it and got your chore done despite the PSD.

I'm going to a dog-friendly wedding up in the Sierra foothills Saturday. That should be a hoot. I've never been to or heard of one. I'll try getting get some pics.

Keep on thriving, my friend! Have a wonderful Frisatsu!

I am hoping it will be too, Al! Either way, another Frisatsu is upon us!

She never got back to me about if she got what was needed for me to finish the job. She apparenlty got a different car for the PSD, but that is another story.

Working with locks is definitely easier, my friend, there just hasn't been enough of that lately either!

He has actually been more lively again from the evening on and has even gone outside a couple of times, so I hope he has pulled through.

I'd love to see images of that "Dog-friendly" wedding!

I'll do my best to keep thriving, and you do the same! Let's make this Frisatsu the best yet!
