Dining reader


Here’s LRN3 dining at Rubio’s in Los Angeles on the First of June this year. That was some good food. Great Art courtesy of the exclusive iPhone-cam and part of my famous Food series.

LRN3 is in the picture because he came to visit us while we were at the City of Hope. Which was very kind of him. Also it was a very nice visit. We hope for a repeat before too much longer. In fact, we hope LRN3 and LRN15 move to Las Vegas before too much longer. Keep saving that money, Loyal Readers!

Pretty good couple of days. Few days, to be exact. Not a whole lot is new with LRN4. She’s been off of Nexavar for a few days now and she’s feeling much better. Not totally well yet, of course, but much better. She’s starting it back up on Saturday, which represents a couple of extra chemo-free days given to us by our doctor this morning.

By the way, we’re still in Las Vegas. Our one-day trip back to Los Angeles was delayed from today to next Monday. Our doctor there isn’t in the office today, so he asked us to come next week instead. So we went to see our Las Vegas doctor today. He said LRN4 is doing pretty well and sent her to the emergency room for platelets. Which we expected. If we can’t get them scheduled ahead of time on a Monday or a Wednesday here, we have to go to the emergency room.

She decided to drive over there herself this time. Fortunately, she felt strong enough to do that today. I needed to stay home to supervise the drywall guys, who came to do a bit of warranty work. It appears that they did a nice job. Our home warranty expires next week, so we’ve been scurrying around getting things done. Fortunately, there has been very little that needed doing. We’re quite impressed with the quality of the materials and workmanship that went into making this house. I can’t complain, but sometimes I still do.

Any Loyal Reader who got the Joe Walsh quote earns a gold star. Any Loyal Reader who even knows who Joe Walsh is gets another gold star.

Not a lot of news on the work front. My renewed startup on the PC program is going a bit slowly. We’ll get there, but it’s a slow start. Again.

On the iOS front, I have sold five copies of the new app! That’s fifteen whole bucks. Well, not quite. Apple keeps 30%. So I’ve made twelve bucks! I also have a couple of bugs to fix already. Sigh. Need to get that done tomorrow, probably.

Also need to get the Mini fixed tomorrow. Again. It was in the shop last week, but they failed to detect a problem with the battery. I fear it may be bad. LRN2 will help me get down there and back. Also need to fix LRN2’s air conditioning – we’re pretty sure it’s a bad relay in a box under the hood. It costs a few hundred dollars to get it fixed at a Ford dealer. You can buy the box online for about $150 or used for maybe $50. Or you can order a replacement relay for under $2, open the box, and replace it yourself. That’s the route we’re going.

Oh, by the way, it cost us about $10 to get the part shipped to us, so it wasn’t quite as cheap as it seems. But it’s still a whole lot cheaper than all the alternatives. Also, the used part is likely to be just as bad as the original one. So the $50 option isn’t really viable.

And then we need to get LRN2’s car smogged and registered. Lots to do.

And that’s about it for tonight. I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this exciting Morrowlife Employment Agency job opportunity: attack stork!

See you tomorrow.

    The stork doesn’t seem very popular. I wouldn’t want it in my neghborhood, so I think I will pass on the employment opportunity!

    A little crazy hair and something in my goatee, but those were good fish tacos and I had a great visit! I really hope we can get out there soon permanently.
