Tremendous Trips & Tasks!

Last Update: October 13, 2021

Hello everyone here in Wealthy Affiliate!

Hump day Wednesday began, as usual, with my normal morning routine of getting caught up from the overnight responses and posts in the Wealthy Affiliate Community!

Tig-Tig was absent again, but no worries, I found her later, as you will see!

Monica had some early morning errands to do, and she was going to have to "baby"-sit her sick 17-year-old daughter at her dwelling across town, so I had better things to do!

The title image and the above image of me driving there are of the morning which greeted me at, and on the way to, the eBay house! The day was absolutely to die for, though sadly, no new work, but that is not to say that I was not busy! Far from it!

After I talked on the phone with my buddy Kevin who is recovering well from his medical mishap yesterday, Frank called me and asked if I would run him on a few errands!


I readily agreed, and the first stop was to get some paperwork taken care of at the County building! Not surprisingly, that proved to be an exercise in futility! We were given the run-around by three departments.
We finally dropped some papers off to an assistant of some "self-important" big-wig, who the assistant said would call later, but he never did--go figure!


We went to lunch at McDonald's, and then I took Frank to the store for some things he needed!


When we were done there, I took him home, unloaded his groceries for him and had a quick beer with him! We then set the chairs out in the sun, because with the breeze, it might have been about 69 degrees Fahrenheit! It got a little chilly!
Soon after, he was ready to go inside, since there had been no contact from the county official!


I went back to the eBay house and took care of some more Wealthy Affiliate research! Then it was on to another few tasks.

Monica called around 2:00pm, and I went home to talk to her and hang a paper towel rack that she bought!


We talked for a while, and enjoyed each others' company! She purposely frowns whenever I try to take her picture and I am not stealthy enough!


It was a moment later that I saw Tig-Tig. Yes, perched atop the refrigerator like the feline ninja that she is! She certainly wasn't there moments before!


I also let the Blog Dogs go outside, but they didn't stay out long since they wanted to be inside where the action was! I visited with Monica some more, and then she had to go pick up the kids and run some more errands!


I headed to the locksmith shop house to charge-up my Buick, which Kevin will check out when he is down Saturday night! My mom called, so I talked to her while I was there!


When I was done with that, the drive back to the eBay house was pleasant enough! This time there were a few clouds!

I wrote this blog post there, and then closed everything down, so I can spend another evening with Monica!

I HOPE EVERYONE HAD AN EXCELLENT HUMP DAY! NOW COMES THE REST OF THE WEEK!

Another busy day, Jeff!

It's great you could spend time with Frank enjoying his company as well as being of help to him.

Good on Tig-Tig. She has the right idea for getting a good view of the world, even though indoors!

Well done to all, including the Blog-Dogs, of course!

Best wishes 😺🐶🐶

I think it was too, Valerie! I have to see Frank whenever the opportunities present themselves!

The furry assistants never fail to entertain!

Have a wonderful new day!

Another busy Hump day my friend, even without any locksmith work to deal with!

But McDonald's?? They serve some of the worst "salads" I have ever had the misfortune to try!

I hope that you and Monica enjoyed a great evening together and your Thursday is a prosperous one!

I once did a Salvation Army gig during the holidays, and the old folks were my regulars! I looked forward to their everyday routine, and their daily donations.
I played carols with the bells, I also had 2, ... instead of just clanging the bell. The Captain loved me!

Their salads aren't very good, Barb!

That sounds like it was a wonderful and rewarding experience, Barb!

I believe they do have salads on the menu Barb, but I wouldn't touch them along with most other things they sell too!🤣

hey Nick ... you must have seen the 'super-size me?' movie from a long time ago? ... lol ...

Chez McDs' menu was eaten by a 'subject' (forgot the name of the
comedian actor) for a whole month and all his vital signs were monitored during that time period ... awe-ful ... and awful ! ...

good grief charlie brown ... best to eat fresh, organic whenever possible ...

ok ... let's find the best menu anywhere ... so where would that be today? ... uhm ...

Uhm, probably nowhere, Keishaoi! Morgan Spurlock is like the actor/director you are looking for for Super-size me!

I'm sure Nick wouldn't mind some organic Ribeye "salads"!

Jeffoi 🙄😂😹

Hi Jeff,
It was interesting to read thst you have beaurocratic hassles there as we have here. All promises but not much action.
Thursday is just beginning here. Full of promise. Heavy rain.
Between showers I will bring a donated overlocker(serger) upstairs from my car.
Look forward to checking it out and giving it a good try out.
Exciting times.
Best wishes. Hope some work comes in for you.

It seems to be that way all over the world now, Jill! Idiots in charge everywhere for the most part, although there are still some good ones if we look hard enough!

Sorry about all that rain. I hope your item satisfies you when checked out!

Enjoy your day, my friend!

I enjoyed reading this smiled at ninja cat as I too have a ninja cat. We call him Moon. Properly named seeing as though he only comes out at night to hunt. When we got him he was a kitten. Got him home and he ran under the house where he now lives. He doesn't eat cat food or anything else we have tried to give him. So we can only guess he's surviving off of whatever he hunts. We rarely see him unless we are sitting on the porch at night he dashes from under the house and runs across the yard if we call him he ducks down under a bush and slowly creeps out as if he's hunting us, dashes to where he's going and off to do Moon things. Whatever that may be. Its been a year now and he's happy being our under the house cat that we see ever so often. Our other cat Bella though she's a whole other hilarious story. 😂

That's AWESOME, Keisha! I have one called Kitty at the eBay house who does the same thing! I don't mention her often because I can never get a good image of her!

It is good that you have some new writing assistants! 😼😼

I followed you, btw!

Haha! Even though the Blog Dogs and Tig-Tig have been "together" for going on two years now, they still hiss and bark at each other! Hilarious! 😹🐶🐶

Jeffrey, I get Monica! I too would rather be behind the camera than in front!

My bank experience, today, much like Frank's courthouse.
I finally got it together to go to bank to close out my ex-husband's bank account since we are coming on his one year passing away.
They couldn't do or tell my anything.
They took my ID, his death certificate and executor papers. Made copies and said they'd know something in a week or 2?
Ever feel like you're talking to a wall?!
Other than that, wrote for 4 hours straight!! Didn't get up once! I guess I had some momentum.
Some days just flow!! 89 degrees, with heavy rain tonight, and cold front coming soon. It's fall in Texas!
Later, Bro!

Thanks, Barb! I don't mind being in front of one, now if it was a live audiences, then that would be a different story altogether!

Banks can be the worst, especially with the government meddling in their affairs too! Ronald Reagan said it best, "Big government is not the solution to the problem, it IS the problem!"

I'm certainly glad you got the writing bug! I need to get that too, since I am hemming and hawing getting traction on my sequel book series!

My mom, who lives south of Dallas, told me that it has been raining all week! Yes, it definitely is Fall in Texas. We will be catching that cold front just ahead of you all!

Take care, and keep writing!

Jeff🤠
