Post 3253 - Sunday

At last.

I did some damn work around the house.

I worked on the middle bedroom, slowly making it useful for human habitation. I have put aside back issues of a certain magazine, which I will be giving to the man who has given me all those back issues of EQMM and AHMM over the past year. Seriously, this man has like quadrupled my collection, as he downsizes his life. I am happy to upsize his life and see these magazines go to a good home. I have plenty more of those magazines in the Valley and will be bringing them back with, the next time I go up there. Like you care.

Meanwhile, I have other science fiction magazines from the 1980's through the early 00's. Analog and F&SF, mostly. Let me know if you want some or all of them, for free. Shipping costs if you are out of town.

Afterward, we were both outdoors. We decided that some lawn chairs are too far gone to keep, so they are at the curb, to go out with the garbage on Tuesday. Instead, there are some plastic lawn chairs that, once I hosed them down, should prove to be perfectly adequate for our use this summer. In fact, I sat in one on the back deck this afternoon for a good half hour, while I read part of a Jas. R. Petrin story. Yes, I am still reading Mr. Petrin's stories. The Chief Robideau's are pretty fun and are actually compelling murder mysteries.

I cooked dinner as well. More haddock. I make the best haddock around. Better than any fish and chips joint. Ask anybody.

Tonight, we watched a couple episodes of "The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt", on Netflix. The second season has been uneven, but once Tina Fey started showing up, it has picked up a lot. I haven't heard anything about a third season yet. I hope there is one.

Another long weekend down the terlet. Another work week beckons. Yippee.

See you tomorrow.
