Sale! It is on sale.

OK, it is the weekend after Thanksgiving and I have been listening to the radio. I don’t know how many commercials I have heard that mention the store is opening early on Friday.

Nail in the tire

Filed under: Life in General — Mike @ 10:20 pm

I have been driving my smart fortwo since April of last year. The smart does not have a spare tire because the front and rear tires are different and to save space and weight. The car comes with a small air pump and tire sealant instead.

Filed under: Clown, Life in General — Mike @ 9:01 am

On Saturday, November 21, 2009, I got up early to participate in the Montgomery County Thanksgiving Parade in Silver Spring, MD. The Kapitol Klowns have been participating in this parade for several years and this year they were expecting about 20 members to march in the parade.

Remembering dreams

Filed under: Life in General — Mike @ 12:02 pm

I don’t know that I have dreams every night, but I do dream. Sometimes I remember most of the details and other times just a few stray images. If someone asked me to close my eyes and picture something, I couldn’t really see anything, but I do with my dreams.

Mouse in the house….

Filed under: Clown, Life in General — Mike @ 1:33 pm

Yes, there was a mouse in the house. Now that I know I had a mouse, I seem to be able to see the signs that I had been missing. In the past, I have always seen the droppings and other signs that indicated I had a mouse, but this time, I think I saw him first.

I know that I have had at least one mouse since moving to South Riding. I can’t say for sure if there was a second or third. I just remember the one and how I caught it within hours of setting the trap. I used peanut butter and found the same jar with only a tiny scoop missing. I know that I purchased a glue trap and a few pre-set traps, but don’t recall ever catching a mouse with them. I have one of the pre-set traps in the basement by the furnace (the one place I suspected as a possibe entry) and another in a storage closet. They are probably too old to have any bait that would attract a mouse.

Drink more water

Filed under: Life in General — Mike @ 9:12 pm

I have known for a while that I don’t drink as much water when I stay home as I do when I go to work. Back when I was in college, I had a large mug that I kept filled with water. I kept it on my desk and filled it when I started working on the computer. I kept that mug and brought it to work. It was a large, insulated mug and people always asked if it was filled with coffee.
