Well, the end of the work week has arrived for some, not for me, though since tomorrow I will be sitting behind the computer at the Flooring desk. They're predicting showers. Any rain would be helpful. Right now I'm using my new hose and reel daily just to keep the flowers from drying out. Temps are predicted to cool off as well. Yesterday we topped off in the lower 90s (F) and we're supposed to repeat today.
With this heat, I'm still slowly digging out the remnants of my Burning Bush as well as several other assorted bushes that had taken root behind it. The pile of dirt is growing. Once I've removed the root structure to my satisfaction the dirt will fill the hole back up.
I was going to go for a ride yesterday afternoon and discovered the battery in my HRM had died. Crap! Rather than stop, I switched to my Garmin watch. Crap! My heart rate zoomed up to way over 150 for the first minute and then dropped down to 99, which was wrong. This is one of my reasons why I don't track my performance with my watch.
And I went to the movies last night. There were fire truck outside the theater when I got there, evidently one of their rooftop A/C units had blown. As a result, we had a 20 minute delay before the film started. On the plus side, we didn't have to sit through the commercials, on the negative side, we didn't get to see any trailers. On the big downside though was price of admission went up $2.00 for senior tickets. This means I'm going to be skipping the beverage from now on.
As for the movie? I went to see The Machine. It was hysterical, definitely deserving it's R rating for both language and violence. For those who need to see shirtless men, there were a lot of shirtless men. It's also not for the squeamish, though the violence is more along the lines of John Wick, just bloodier.
And Ronnie D just can't seem to get away from his bad press. This is to be expected from a short man with Napoleonic issues. I know Maddie had been hoping for debates, but they ain't gonna happen. Putting Ronnie D and Donnie T on a stage would only result in a word salad blood bath. That might be entertaining, but I don't think the GOP is that stupid... at least I don't think they are.
