Sebastian snoozes the afternoon away after a good lunch. He cares not for football.
It’s been a beautiful but busy weekend. I’ve done more calls with my two fire companies in the past 2 days than I did all week on duty. Sometimes it happens. I’ve been slightly neglecting the chickens, but I took time to feed and water before running off this morning. We have four chicken coops,Continue reading “Of fox and chickens. . .”
As mentioned, I’ve been developing film this week. Here are a few from our Lonesome Lake Hut/Cannon Mountain expedition. Shot on Ilford FP4+ with a Nikon FM2/50mm. Developed in D76.
Everyone is out of town this week, so I’m minding the family store. 18:00 hours, home from dinner after work. Fed my parents’ 5 cats and their feral colony. Warmed up the photo processor and the railcar. Fed and watered 14 chickens in three coops. Changed transmission oil in the motorcar; it’s going to getContinue reading “Why am I so tired again?”
It’s that time of year again, when I join the Mount Washington Observatory’s fundraiser, Seek the Peak. Last year I attacked New England’s Highest Peak, Home of the World’s Worst Weather, and succeeded before lunch. I also got some cool swag. This year Beth decided she wanted to climb with me. We dutifully registered forContinue reading “Seeking the Peak”
The 1970’s may have been dismal times for cars, music, and fashion, but the power equipment and motorcycles were pretty good. This 1973 Wheel Horse 1-0120 8 joined the fleet this week. It will do intermediate mowing duties at the farm. It’s perfect for the jobs which are too big for Frankenmower but not largeContinue reading “New Horse”
I feel it’s time for an update, but I don’t have anything focused to say. NfMH seems to be back to normal. A Jetpack update crashed it briefly last week. You might have noticed most of the sidebar was gone. (I had to deactivate it to get the main page running again.) Another update yesterdayContinue reading “UPDATES. . .”
It’s been a stressful couple of weeks. I’m commuting halfway across the state 2 days a week for a fire academy course. In between, we’ve had our big state ambulance inspection at work. Sebastian’s health is declining, and we fear the end is near. It would be easy to be frazzled or depressed. The busContinue reading “1978. . .”
The other medics have gone out on a call. If cancelled, they will stay out for coffee. I may not see them again until lunch. The BLS crews are all asleep. Some are recovering from a rough night shift while others rest up for the marathon ahead. I sit in the empty garage listening toContinue reading “anticipation”
lots of posts to write but one looms large in my mind just can’t write it yet
