The 22nd anniversary of my 49th birthday.......

 7:59 am - Sunday - October 4th - Seal Rock, OR - 55° F, 94% humidity, wind 9 mph out of the north.....overcast, and cool today with a forecast high of 61° F.  On this date in 2013 I was working the graveyard shift at Sidney Sugars (5:30 pm to 5:30 am).....it was about 29° F.......↴


I began my birthday celebration Saturday cooking bacon out on the 'Lido Deck' on our portable Coleman butane burner.....that splash screen we bought a few months ago is really working quite well.......

Coleman butane burner, square cast iron ribbed skillet, grease splash screen, and plenty of bacon!

.....while I was outside I pulled out the 'outdoor TV' and watched an English Premier League match....it passed the time until the bacon began to take on a nice grilled look.....

.....while I was otherwise occupied TLE was cooking up some 'spent grain' pancakes, and scrambled eggs......a perfect birthday breakfast.......

.....I continued watching the balance of the English Premier match while I enjoyed my birthday breakfast.  On towards Noon we hopped in the Beetle and drove into the Safeway supermarket in Newport.....we've shopped at the Fred Meyers right across the street, and Ray's in Waldport, so TLE wanted to check out the Safeway......

......I spent the rest the day working on a few small projects including cutting two pieces of aluminum to cover the vent openings on our through bay (storage bay which can be accessed from with side of the Newell).....



......there is one of these vents on each bay door.   My reason for covering them is to prevent the salt laden moisture which permeates the Seal Rock, OR neighborhood from ingressing into the bay and making things damp.  Whoever installed these vents provided for this possibility by welding in two machine screws on the inside of each vent, and adding two wing nuts so a covering could be attached in the future......

I installed one of these on each door

....I always keep a sheet of aluminum for things just like this.  I spent time watching some college football, reading, and dumping our black tank....when it's due it's due....birthday, or not....LOL!

TLE made up an Hors d'oeuvre plate for dinner (still full from breakfast).....apples, pears, olives, cheese and gluten free crackers.....

....a nice way to end the day!
