8:08 am - Sunday - September 10th - 59º F, humidity 67%, wind 5 mph out of the south......cloudy, but much less haze.....forecast high for Gardiner, Mt is 75º F, and the same for Mammoth Hot Springs, WY.  Over the next two weeks the weather forecast takes a nose dive.......as you will see below it stays warm through Tuesday, but by Wednesday the temps dive into the 60's and 50's for the next 11 days......



.......when you see a lot of yellow leaves on the ground you know Fall is upon you....


I woke up Saturday feeling punk.....I had gone to bed with a slightly sore throat, but I thought that was from too much talking all day Friday, and then Friday night at the Rusty Rail, but by the time I got up Saturday morning it was really sore.  It felt like I was getting tonsillitis, with which I have a history.  I had TLE shine a flashlight in my mouth and she said she thought my right tonsil was swollen, well that was all it took for me.  I haven't hat tonsillitis for about 12 years, but I have learned over the decades I must catch it early on with antibiotics, or I will be in for a week of pain.  When we were in Los Algodones the last time we stopped off at the big Purple Pharmacy near the border and bought two bottles of antibiotics for just such a situation.  I immediately took one capsule with instructions from my nurse, TLE, to take two more during the day.  Since I was also feeling achy all over I decided to stay home and just rest.  TLE rode to work with Dodge leaving me with the VW should I need it, even though I was 100% sure I was not even going outside.....at least I was relatively certain.  I napped on and off all morning while NCAA College Football played in the background.  The morning games held little interest for me, but there were several afternoon games which did......Georgia at Notre Dame, Oklahoma at Ohio State, and finally Stanford at USC. Georgia prevailed over N.D. by one point, Oklahoma blew out Ohio State 31-16, and USC dominated Stanford 42-24....it really wasn't even that close.

In the middle of all of this frivolity the power went out around 3 pm.....went out for Gardiner and all of Yellowstone National Park, including Mammoth Hot Springs.  TLE reported that they had to use the 'knuckle busters' I wrote about a few weeks ago for about an hour.....glad I missed that!  Apparently a transformer blew somewhere, and initially we were told they would have things back online by 5:30, however, that was not the case.....it came back on by 4 pm here in Gardiner and Mammoth Hot Springs.  I ran my small Predator generator during the outage so I could continue to watch football, which was a good thing....it hasn't been run for a number of months....always good to exercise mechanical things periodically.

Over the course of the day I began to feel better, and by the time TLE arrived home (8:30) I was feeling much better.  The USC game was still on, and didn't finish until 9:30 pm.  For me it was a good day of watching NCAA College Football, and stopping my tonsillitis in its tracks.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Get well my friend. Just after commenting that we had not been sick in a long time, both Sue and I have the razor blade throat, light sensitive eyes, sniffles cold too! Nice to have our Newell house to retreat to when you feel poorly.
