Will it rain, or will I work?

 8:07 am - Thursday (Thanksgiving) - November 26th - Seal Rock, OR - 43° F, 100% humidity, wind - CALM......cloudy today with a forecast high of 53° F. On this date in 2010 TLE and I were riding our Cannondale Tandem on Chino Hills Parkway in Chino Hills, CA.......↴

.....and on this same date in 2013 I rode my bicycle to the top of Mt. Rubidoux in Riverside, CA.....↴


At 9 am it was raining quite hard, and it did not look as if I would be working Wednesday, but a Thanksgiving Eve miracle occurred.....it quit raining, and by 10 am the sun had come out briefly, so it was off to work for me.....TLE works rain, or shine....lol!

I continued working with Blake mowing and edging sites 14-23.....while I was in site 14 I took these pictures of the raging surf......






Even though it was in the low 50's I took off my jacket and worked in short sleeves

......I actually worked a little over 2 hours....my longest workday this week!  I was home just before 12:20 pm, and fixing the drivers side door pull on the VW, of course.  You will recall that the original door pull (plastic) broke a few weeks ago, so while I ordered the replacement aftermarket door pulls for both doors I used superglue to fix it temporarily.  I assumed it would break again pretty quickly, but it lasted three weeks.  It was just a matter of attaching the new machined aluminum door pull with two stainless steel bolts.....took about 10 minutes......


.....and now it is good for a long time.  I'll work on replacing the passenger side door pull when we get a sunny day in the next week.

After fixing the door pull I drove into town to get my prescription for my blood pressure medication transferred from the COSCTO in Wenatchee, WA where I last had it filled.  There is a pharmacy in Waldport called Hi-School Pharmacy which will take care of getting the paperwork transferred for my next refill next week.  I was back home within 40 minutes, just before it began raining again....it only rained for about 30 minutes, and then the sun came out again.

I spent the rest of the afternoon finishing my special Thanksgiving blog post, which I had begun that morning.  Frankly, I was a little taken aback by how much we did this summer, and how many friends with whom we spent time.  As Ferris Bueller famously said....."Life moves pretty fast.  If you don't stop and look around once and a while, you could miss it".....ain't that the truth.......that's my 2¢, and I'm sticking to it!
