Loose Thoughts

This morning, while I was dropping of packages, I listened to a pair of postal employees argue over who was right and who was wrong in a recent shooting case. As I listened, the following thought occurred to me. I’m still turning it over in my head to see if it rings true. The thought: […]

Mid Summer Updates

My time has been much occupied with making and mailing packages. These days we do Schlock shipping in patches over a week or more. It is less stress on me and causes less trouble with the post office. I’ve also been spending time with cruise administration and planning. We have many attendees who have never […]

Important Schlock Package Announcement

Unsketched Force Multiplication orders are in the mail. This is good news. Unfortunately it has come to my attention that some of the packages were sent out with the wrong package weight. (Completely my mistake. I fumbled and types 1lb instead of 2lb when entering a batch.) At least one arrived to a customer Postage […]

Beginning July

The days slipped into being July, not exactly when my back was turned. I saw it coming, yet somehow when it actually became July, I felt a moment of surprise. This weekend most of my country will be on holiday. The official day of celebration is on Monday, so it grants a three day weekend […]

Learning from History

I’ve been watching Mysteries at the Museum on Netflix. It is really good for putting on while I do things like sorting invoices or stamping books. The show takes interesting artifacts from smaller museums all of the country and tells the stories that landed the object in a museum. I enjoy hearing the stories and […]

Days slip away

At this moment I am sitting in my warehouse, waiting for a truck to deliver four pallets of Force Multiplication. I’m also wishing that the AC in the warehouse worked better, may need to call the landlord about that. The truck is due to come sometime between now and two hours from now. Hence me […]

Home Again

We made it home. The drive we expected to take ten hours stretched to twelve. Most of the delay was because I-80 was turned into a parking lot outside of Elko while road crews doused and removed a burning semi from blocking both eastbound lanes. It was strange to stand outside of my car talking […]

Day of Rest at the Quincy House

We took today off from hauling and sorting, but I still wandered about taking pictures and noticing things. Like these giant calipers that Grandpa acquired from somewhere. They weigh at least forty pounds. I’ve no idea what he planned to use them for. This is a cabinet in Grandma’s kitchen. She may have covered it […]

Things Removed from Grandpa’s Garage Today

Over forty whole televisions, many more pieces of televisions. Many of the televisions were in wooden cabinets. Seven 8 track cassette players Four reel to reel tape recorders three hair dryers from the 1960s, the kind of hair dryers that came with a long hose and a vinyl hood to go over curlers two oscilloscopes […]

Clearing out, A Day in Pictures

My Grandpa was a radio repairman who expanded into televisions when they became common. He had a workshop and a tendency to acquire things which he intended to fix. These are the televisions we removed from his garage today. This is a view of about a third of the garage, many televisions remain. I went […]
