I really should have been out and about earlier, coz I have various and sundry errands that must be attended to... like filling three prescriptions before my eye surgery in two weeks time, restocking the larder, and replenishing the beer inventory. But we weren't out and about and we ain't gonna be so, for we are having another wind event here on The High Plains of New Mexico. Shorter: it ain't nice outside. None of the foregoing items are time sensitive and the beer supply is adequate for the moment, so... everything can wait.
Well, sorta. I'm drinkin' the second bottle of that beer for people who don't really like beer and I'm seriously considerin' chuckin' the four remaining bottles in the trash. Throwin' out beer is a RARE thing at El Casa Móvil De Pennington but it HAS happened (we disposed of this moose-piss-in-a-bottle with no regrets). OTOH, I might save what's left of this berrry interesting stuff, if only because I have occasional female visitors who might like it. Mebbe.
In the mean time we have an adequate stock of suitable beers for our second and possible subsequent round(s). Coz we're good like that.
Speakin' of wind events... we were out and about for about five hours yesterday, having journeyed to Cannon Airplane Patch to resupply the meds and then over to The Big(ger) City™ for our pre-surgery eye appointment. I made the grievous mistake of leavin' all my windows open while I was gone, with predictable results: the 40-mph winds left a fine coating of miserable frickin' grit all over every-gotdamned-thing. I gave the desk a perfunctory wipe-down when I got back in last evening and saved the heavy-duty cleaning for today, which took me at least an hour... no shit, really. Suffice to say our windows are shut tight today and we WILL use the AC if conditions require. Housework is the curse of the drinking class, yanno?
About that eye appointment... I've decided to go with an upgrade and will get my astigmatism fixed when the cataracts are removed. Medicare won't pay for the upgrade but the price is reasonable and it will be a welcome change to go through the rest of life without glasses. Well, sorta. I'll still need reading glasses for close-up work but that's not all THAT bad now, izzit?
So... beer me!
