Saw StarLink deployment across the sky. Yup, me and my two friends saw these. I ran into the house to very quickly check the time: 8:55
I saw those go across the sky too! Very cool. I also had a hysterical neighbor who called 911 thinking we were being invaded 😮 I told her it was probably StarLink... she still looked confused and scared... maybe she thought I said SkyNet from the Terminator 🙂
I did my evening workout with stretches and the 15lbs dumbbells.

UPS delivered my new window mini-split. Too late to install today and will do it tomorrow.
Friday 14- 98/63F windy. I did my stretches and 100 crunches.
I installed the window mounted mini-split. Took about 3 hours because I had to hunt down the needed tools. I tested the unit for an hour because it was getting late. It seemed to cool right down. Will do more testing tomorrow.
Kjtel came by with her dogs and we had a fine time yapping and carrying on.
Saturday 15- 92/56F windy. I did all my exercises
I tested the window mini-split and it didn’t draw down my battery too much but I might want to add some panels. I have it set up with its own solar array, battery, controler, and inverter like I had planned. You can really feel the heat coming out the backend when it's working hard.
I installed the new battery into the Palm Z21 and it charged up just fine now to install new software and games onto it.

I reinstalled the drainage pipe on the little pool and will fill it up with water tomorrow after a few little fixes.
Kjtel dropped by with tea and chocolate. Bodhi, Henry, and Cassie played in the yard while me and Kjtel discussed matters of importance in world events and solved one of the mysteries of life; but we now have forgotten what it was we solved. I guess it’s better for the world this way, us having forgotten.

Saturday 22- 78/53F less windy. I did all my exercises.
I finished installing the drainpipe for the little pool and filled it up and there seems to be no leaks anywhere.
I visited David, my neighbor and gave him a red LED flashlight that also glows in the dark so it’s easy to find at night. A red light will not harm your night vision when reading star maps.
Sunday 23- 83/58 nice day. I did my stretches and 100 crunches and took Cassie for long walks in the morning and another in the early evening.
Walked on over to Kjtel’s, me and Cassie did, took the Poets Trail to her house. Bodhi and Henry were anxiously wagging their tails when they saw Cassie. We chatted for a long spell, and then we went over to the large water storage tank and knocked it over. Kjtel is going to cut it up, and must be fifteen feet tall and over five feet in diameter, and use it as a sauna.
I called Kevin and we had a nice chat.

I gave David the old wading pool that blew into my property maybe ten years ago and I have done nothing with it since.
Wednesday 26- 94/65. It's 3:06AM and totality is an hour away. Unfortunately for me, the clouds are covering the sky and I can't see anything of the Moon... Hardly any clouds for over a month or more and the night when it counts the most our area is socked in with those lofty puffs of moisture :'(
I did my stretches and 100 crunches.
