Wonderful Wednesday Woocommerce Website Work & Weather Woes

Last Update: November 10, 2021

Hello everyone here in Wealthy Affiliate!

First, a quick addendum to yesterday's post! Around 8 pm, I went and assisted two women at a storage facility by extracting a broken key from their padlock on a U-Haul truck! They gladly paid my charge of $65 with $100 and told me to keep the change since I was a "lifesaver" in their words! That motivated me to do a lot more work into the wee hours of the morning and gave me an excellent jump-start into this new Wednesday HUMP day!

Of course, it began with my routine morning run into the Wealthy Affiliate Community!

Since I stayed at the eBay house again, overnight, Kitty was the one who was "assisting" me!

I can only imagine that Tig-Tig is freaking out! (Haha--probably not!)

Monica and I are still at odds about a few issues, and it is best that I stay out of her hair right now until she gets things sorted out and is ready to discuss things further (If that happens).

We shall see, but I am determined not to allow this "bump in the road" derail me from being productive where ti concerns my new Woocommerce website endeavor and all the work that it is going to entail!

Shortly after I finished with a couple more Tweaks of the Woocommerce Site, my Army buddy Ron called and said he was almost to the house!

When I ventured outside, there he was! We talked a bit, and then I rode with him to go take a look at an old tractor that he wanted to buy.

Not too shabby, now he simply had to call about it! He took a couple of pictures of it as well!

Everything seemed okay. He'll call the owner later and see what's what!

He was in town killing time until his wife got off work. He was going to take her for lunch and then enjoy a day together afterwards! He called because he decided to come in early and spend some time conversing with me, which I thought was nice!

This is the drive back to the eBay house! (below)

Right after this it started thunder storming and hailing a little! We talked for a bit more, and then parted ways when there was a brief respite in the micro storm! When I got back inside, I shifted focus and performed a little more Wealthy Affiliate research!

I have incorporated this into my daily routine whenever I find time to fit it in! (Especially on rainy days such as this, which so far, has turned out to be!)

Around 3:30pm, I got my first locksmith call to fix a malfunctioning lock. Thankfully, by this time, the rain had died down considerably!

When I finished with that, I received a call to go unlock a car. Still the rain was holding out!

Since I was in the neighborhood of the property management office, I decided to drop the $75 off to them and wile I was there she gave me another job to do for tomorrow!

What a great day all around this has been--at least in the work phase of things. I still have some issues at home to address, but right now is not the time for that.....yet!

The evening will be spent working some more within the Wealthy Affiliate Community, and at the same time working some more on the Woocommerce site!

There is a lot of work still to do there, especially since I have a great many images to capture for the items up for sale! (I'm estimating 2-500 items to start with, though by no means is that even close to what I have to sell!)

At least I will not be bored!

While I'm away from the Blog Dogs and Tig-Tig temporarily, I will end with a couple of images of them. The first is when they were mere puppies! Shadow was still the biggest one!

Then here is a sneak peek of what Tig-Tig will be put through again come Christmas! Poor thing!

I HOPE THAT EVERYONE HAS ENJOYED AN EXCELLENT HUMP DAY!

Wow! Only a day late!

Ah, yes, bumps in the road...I do remember those. I'm actually sometimes very glad to be by myself. Seems I get along better with cats than with people sometimes. (Speaking of cats, hope to get another fairly soon.)

At least you are getting lots of work done. Be thankful for that.

I think that I am beginning to be the same way, Fran!😹

Tig-Tig might be on the sales block--FREE to good home according to Monica the other day!

I am enjoying being away from the circus and buckling down! For that, I am thankful!

Too bad you are so far away, or Tig-Tig could come here.

No, it would be too hard on the kitty. Why do you want to rehome her? She is a part of your family -- how could you ever rationalize giving away a family member?
Reply
JeffreyBrown Premium
It's not me, Fran! Monica wants to get rid of the Blog Dogs and Tig-Tig! With winter coming I have no preparations to do anything for them, but maybe she is just bluffing!
Reply
FKelso Premium Plus
Monica needs to think about the animals...they have feelings, too, and you two are their lives and their security. They trust you to take care of them...they have no choice but to trust you. What would it do to that trust if you were to suddenly remove them from the only family they have known? When we take on a pet, we take on the responsibility for their care. "Getting rid" of them is not any way to honor that responsibility.

I read a quote recently from a woman. She said "my boyfriend said either the pet goes or I go. I miss him sometimes."

Hey... Keisha!!!

Sorry to disappoint.. but there is no crystal ball consulting from me...

well, the "She--SLeuth" checks out the quote and here are the findings:

back on May 8, 1793 ... during the French Revolution at the French National Convention -- a bunch of collections held this statement :

"Ils doivent envisager qu’une grande responsabilité est la suite inséparable d’un grand pouvoir."

and translated to English:

"They must consider that great responsibility follows inseparably from great power."

And:

"Prominent leaders such as Lord Melbourne, Winston Churchill, Teddy Roosevelt, and Franklin D. Roosevelt made similar statements in later years. (Plus), the appearance of an instance in a Spider-Man story in 1962 was influential in U.S. popular culture."

So there we have it, folks!!

Isn't the internet fantastic??!!

No, Nick, which is why I remain at home where I reside, therefore, I shall weather with winter and enjoy the Spring once again! 😳🤣

so true! ... the Southern hemisphere is the place to be every November through to February ...

and Jeffoi ... you'd be so impressed with the beef out of Argentina, Brazil ... outta this world apparently! ... i had Consul friends who were on rotation to Argentina some years ago ... it's a very long way to travel to South America ...
Reply
keishalina Premium
dear Nick ... yes, of course, Jeffoi can make the travel via 'virtual YT channel!' ... lol ... :))
Reply
JeffreyBrown Premium
I likely would, Keishaoi! Where I am now is my home though, and I'll stay and do my best to maintain it! I don't have the money to travel or do anything else, and that is completely fine with me!

keishalina Premium
... there's a 'damper' anyway ... so getting in a 'cigar-tube' and breathing in the 'same air' with a bunch of others? ... nope ...

... anyway, travel is quite an educator to see and to learn of how others live ... glad i've done so much travel during my younger days as actually, travel does take lots of energy to do ... i guess, it's the change, the packing/unpacking, daily search for food (unless all-inclusive package) et al ...

... with my extensive travels -- i've learned to travel very specifically ... just a carry-on no matter of how long or where to ... and that's it ... be prepared for anything, especially delays ...

... it's said that 'change is as good as a rest' ...

... true and yet, why are we so exhausted & relieved to be back home from the travels? ... a bit of an oxymoron, perhaps? ...

enjoy it all ... virtual or otherwise ... :))

JeffreyBrown Premium
I would agree with your last line for sure, Keishaoi!

That's the way my friend, virtually tasting and smelling it all is much better than not having the experience at all!

We can certainly learn a lot from YT when it comes to other cultures.

There are so many places I wish to visit still in our wonderful world, I know that I will not get everywhere in my lifetime, but watching others be there brings me happiness!

Same here, Nick! I've got too much going on right where I am, and I depend on my business to allow me to maintain what I do already have! Travel is simply not in the cards unless I become rich and famous real quick! No regrets though!

I also have travelled very light at times Keisha (and continue to do so actually)!!

It's my better half and the post pup that seem to take up the vast majority of space in any suitcase that comes along with us!!!

(Not them obviously, but the amount of belongings they need to travel with!)

I am not a huge fan of travelling in "cigar tubes" either, taking the train is my preferred option here in Europe... or maybe drive when needs must..

But I can't handle driving too far anymore as I used to do back in my youth....,!

When changing continents however, there is little option other than taking the 'cigar tube'!

Take care my dear friend, my wonderfully comfy bed that has been neglected for the past week is calling my name...!!😊😊🍇

JeffreyBrown Premium
Aren't you just 40, Nick?? I don't blame you though, driving is tedious anymore! You had me going as I thought you were smuggling the wife and post pup in your luggage, and then I thought to myself, "A ha! that's how he can afford all the vacations and Ribeye barbies!" 🤣🤣😹

.... always good to hear of your adventures, dear Nick ...

enjoy a good rest up after your travels ...

ah yes, changing continents about .... well, it seems like it may be easier to shift the tectonic plates around then to transit in a cigar tube ... lol ...

can see more of different lands that way ... what an idea!!!

just kiddin' .... and actually why not? .... that way, we can simply drive over land masses to visit each other in avoiding those flying sardine can containers ... now isn't that better? ... lol ,,,

and by the way, have you heard of freighter cruises? ... that's another way to get around ... an o' uncle did that and he was very happy with that idea ... everything is on board and less 'commercial' than a regular world cruise ... mind you, that was last century so now in our time ... hard to say if that has changed ... ah well, something to look into ...

ok ... chat with you tomalli ... good night to ya ... zzz ...

41 actually Jeffrey (maybe I will update my profile page at some point)! But some days I feel closer to 60 though!

Back in my 20's and early 30's, I could easily drive around the continent for 12-14 hours a day at times if needed, but now 6 hours is about my limit before I find myself dozing off at the wheel!

The post pup could easily be smuggled in the luggage, as for the wife, no comment!!🤣

Hi dear Keisha.. the 'Post Pup' is just the nickname for my best friend you see as my profile picture!!

When she isn't playing, tearing around the garden, eating or sleeping, it's not unheard of that she assists me writing 'posts' for my dog niche website!!🐾🐾

Jeff has his 'blog dogs' (and a few other members in his crew), I have my 'post pup'!!

I trust you are having a fantastic start to the week my friend!🐶🙂

I don't think the wife has enough time to read this, she is too busy on the phone with the PSIL!!

When they are not together in person they will be on the phone!!

Gives me more time to get things done anyway my friend!!🤣

So pleased to hear you're making progress with your woocommerce site. Love the cute photos of Shadow and Star as puppies, and of course, the one of Tig Tig with her Christmas attire. I'm sure she's looking forward to wearing it again this year lol! How kind of that lady to give such a generous tip, and nice tractor. Hope Monica sorts her issues out and sending her good wishes:)
Reply
JeffreyBrown Premium
Thank you, Kathy! I certainly am too, though it is very slow progress!

I always thought the blog dogs were some of the cutest puppies! I miss those days for sure!

Tig-Tig will likely not like any costume they decide to put her in. As for my customers, they are one in a million, and I do my best to serve them well!

I hope that you had an excellent Hump Day 🐫 I hope your Thursday is going equally well so far!

Hey Jeff, I have not been keeping up with reading blogs very well, and apparently, I have missed quite a bit. Have you put your book writing on hold to pursue a WooCommerce site?

And you got a new kitty? At least I haven't seen him/her? before. Has Kitty and Tig-Tag met? (btw, love the picture of Tig-Tag in the hat. I hope she's ready for Christmas this year.)

I certainly will be praying that you and Monica get things worked out soon.

I hope you have a wonderful Veteran's Day (which begins in about 20 minutes).

JeffreyBrown Premium
Oh yes, Lynn! A lot has changed! I could definitely write a book on that alone!

Kitty has lived at the eBay house for quite some time, but she preferred to be left out of the limelight until now!

I prefer to allow God to control what is going on right now with Monica and myself, and I have faith that He knows what He is doing!

Tig-Tig and Kitty have never met, and likely won't. Two female cats likely wouldn't get along that well anyway!

I haven't given up on my books and book site, but my WA collaborator has other things going on right now, and so I am exploring the Woocommerce as an alternative to my eBay endeavors!

I hope that all has been well in your world. We'll talk again soon!

Enjoy your upcoming new day!

Jeff🙏

Hi Jeff,
It makes sense to set up a WooCommerce account since you have collected so many odd ball items in your eBay house that you can sell. Am I right? Or is C your WooCommerce for other plans.
Loved how you integrated WooCommerce into the Wednesday theme.
Cheers.

I'll be primarily selling Unique and vintage books and other ephemera to include newspapers, magazines and the like, Edwin!

Thanks, Edwin, I figured it began with a W and was relevant to the post!
