Nuttin’ happened today.

Woke up.  Binge-watched Orange Is the New Black.  Realized I lost my passport last week.  Shopped for groceries so I won’t need to eat out all the time.  Started binge-watching F Is for Family.

Maybe something will happen tomorrow.

New Bedroom

Flew home this morning.  I’d been worried I hadn’t given the cats enough food and water when I left, so I drove straight home from the airport.  But, the cats still had food and water when I got home.  They were a little standoffish at first, but soon warmed up to me because they love to be pet.  I pulled out the vacuum to get some cat hair and litter off the floor and tripped the circuit breaker.  Found out I have two circuits for the 110 VAC.  I’d plugged into the 15A circuit (the other one is 20A), which also powered my internet modem, the microwave, the box fan next to my bed and the portable air conditioner in the shed.  The vacuum was just too much.  Plugged the vacuum into the outlet that was still working, finished up and then went outside to reset the breaker.  Yes, the breakers are on the outside of the house!

After greeting and feeding the cats, I lay down for a nap.  Slept for three hours.  Felt fantastic when I woke up.  Glad to be home again….

It’s the last night of this work trip.  One more night staying at the Northeast Sacramento Crowne Plaza.  I think this is my fifth night here, so it’s kind of like my second home.  Looking forward to flying back home tomorrow morning.


After work today, I came back to the hotel room and took a nap.  Watching Big Bang Theory on TBS.  Seems like old times….

McLellan Water Tank

Back in the early 1970’s, my dad was stationed at McClellan Air Force Base, near Sacramento, California.  Today I was working on what used to be the base.  When my dad was working here, we lived in North Highlands, just a few miles away.  After work today, I decided to visit some of the places I where I’d spent my time.


Back then, this was our neighborhood library.  I spent a lot of time here.  I remember they held a pet show where the prizes were books.  I brought my pet mice — didn’t win a book….  If I remember right, the city bus stopped here.  I used to ride the bus into Sacramento and watch movies at an old theater that charged 99 cents admission.

Today I drove by our house, but because it hadn’t changed since I took a picture of it eight years ago, I didn’t feel the need to take a picture this time.

Jimboy's Tacos

I had dinner here this evening.  This is a block away from the house, and used to be a 7-11 store where I’d bought my bubblegum and candy.  I had tacos today, and they weren’t too bad!

I tried something new today — taking videos with my phone.  I recorded my visits to my elementary and junior high schools.  I uploaded the videos to Facebook, but this blog doesn’t allow it (because I’m too cheap to pay for a premium site).

Now I’m back at the hotel, getting ready for bed.  G’night!
