windy day

saturday 
was a lovely day
 no more rain
 blue skies
 fluffy clouds
 nice warm temps
 incredibly
 strong wind
 not
 a breeze
 nothing gentle
 gusts
 of 
strong wind

 i wish i had taken a video of these daffs
 they
 were
 being
 buffeted 
bending
 leaning
 trying to stand
 against
 the harsh winds 

can you see
 how
 they're leaning 





i slept in
 i love sleeping
 i was having an odd dream
 i remember snatches of it 
i was in los angeles i was at my friend f's place 
but
 it wasn't her place 
not the real place she lives
 i was with my grandmother at one point
 my father's mother
 i remember
 it made me feel emotional
 i know thats odd
 but
 i recall that feeling clearly
 i also remember wanting to find my friend mary's phone number
 i didn't have my phone 
so i didn't have my contact app
 i am not sure why i needed to contact mary 

i am not sure what of any of the dream
 means

 i woke
 looked at the clock
 it was 9ish
 i closed my eyes 
thought about the dream a bit
 then
 i got up 

eventually i went out
 did some errands
 came back
 told toonman
 i wasn't going to suggest taking a walk it was too windy
 i was going to call time-warner
 oh yeah
 the newest hd dvr box 
barely a week old
 was acting wonky
 pixilating 
skewing
 the picture 
of 
both live and recorded programs

 i spoke to a nice guy
 at the customer resolution center
 no 
didn't call
 the main number
 i am t
hrough with them 
happy to say 
roy was very helpful
 he told me
 the earliest appointment was april 9 
but
 he would try and get it moved up
 he called back an hour later to say someone would be by between 4 and 6 pm

 so toonman and i watched the finale of this season's walking dead 
because 
once they take the 'old' box
 all of the recorded programs disappear 
walking dead is not showing again this 'season' 
we checked

 it was a very intense hour 
if you've seen it
 i am sure you know our 'heroes' are in a bad place
now we have to wait
 months to find out what happens next
in the meantime 
game of thrones 
begins
 its new season on sunday   

what else
 i am reading a terrific book
the last dead girl
 its the sort of prequel
 to
 bad things happen and very bad men
 the author
 harry dolan 
writes
 a good involving story 

i am sure there's more
 but 
i dont know what

   oh yeah
 time-warner 
they're on the way
 so i will fill you in on that tomorrow

  hope 
you
have 
more interesting weekend
 then i

  1. Daryl, glad to see you are getting a bit of Spring at last! It's been hit and miss here. We've had tons of rain.
    Hope you get your cable box fixed once and for all!

  2. Hopefully the fix takes!

    The daffodils are lovely.

  3. Those daffodils look like they're huddling together to keep warm.

  4. I love Dolan! The Last Dead Girl was good. The whole Time-Warner thing is just crazy. And Game of Thrones! It's going to be a good season. :)
