As much as I wanted to take a break from Facebook, I suffered from two issues. The first one being that I had no self control :). The second being that my family prefers the Facebook Messenger to SMS, or any other messaging platform. This has been a very busy week both at work and at home. This weekend, our under the counter microwave died on us. We can’t afford to replace it at the moment but we went ahead and removed it as you can see in the photo below.
Last night as my wife was coming home from work, she hit a pot hole on the I-240 Service Road between Eastern and Bryant and blew her tire out as well as damaged the rim.
I drove over there to help her change the tire and put on the donut wheel but by the time I got there someone else had pulled over and helped her change it as you can see in the picture below. For the record, she knows how and is very capable of changing the tire by herself.
God is very good to us by having nice people around like that to help when we were in a bad place. The guy that helped out had all the tools already with him and he had just changed his own tire when he hit the same pot hole. When I finally got home around midnight last night, there was an Oklahoma City Police helicopter flying around our neighborhood.
Just as I was getting my phone out to take a picture of it flying over head, they shined their spotlight right in my face as you can see in the next photo.
Oddly enough, I was under the impression that when we moved out to this nice neighborhood that the police would not be flying over our house anymore. At our old house, we saw the helicopter all the time. Obviously they were looking for someone in the neighborhood. They circled the two truck stops about five times and then left. I hope they catch the bad guy :). Anyway, it was tough to wind down for bed last night but I finally managed to do so.
Once I did get to sleep, I dreamed that my ham radio tower fell and bent in half. That was the most terrifying dream even though I do not have a tower at the moment :). The funny thing is that I dreamed that I disconnected the guy wire and leaned the tower up against another one beside it thinking that I’ll be right back when I get a tool. Then I looked up to see a huge crow pulling on the antenna and knocked it down. It is funny how dreams are so bizarre. To someone else, that may seem like no big deal but losing the tower was the most stressful event of all :).
Today or tonight we are expecting some snow or sleet and I am cautiously optimistic that it will happen. I just love weather and enjoy every minute that the sun is not shining and 100+ degrees. I am very excited that storm season is only a couple months away. Don’t interpret my enthusiasm for storms as a desire to see anyone get hurt or see their property destroyed. I’ve always been fascinated with storms since I was about five years old. That is about how old I was the first time I can remember the tornado siren coming on in the middle of the night. It was great then and still excites me.
