Weekend Open Mic

Weather: Cooler temperatures and it looks like we’re going to get some rain finally this week. It’s been pretty dry the last month or so.

The week: Not much planned for the weekend but a big week coming up. Dinner with friends on Monday night. Then my wife is getting a knee replacement on Friday, so we’ll be busy “preparing’ for that.

TV: We’re finally down to the last 2 episodes of season 5 of Lucifer (Netflix). I just saw online that they are just now starting production on season 6. While I’ve enjoyed it, I’m looking forward to watching something different.

Weekend Open Mic

Weather: Looks like typical mid-September weather here in the St. Louis area.

The Week: Might do some more power washing this weekend. I did a little last weekend, but still have a lot to do. Having a family gathering Wednesday for my daughter’s birthday. Nothing else planned.

TV: We finished Designated Survivor (Netflix) 8.5/10. I really liked this show. Started watching Lucifer (Netflix) but are only a couple episodes in so far. It has a few laughs so far, but the jury is still out on whether we’ll watch it all. I’ve also been watching The Chef Show. I wasn’t sure I’d like it, but I keep watching so I guess I do.

Weather: After a week in the low to mid 90s it’s cool off a bit this coming week.

The week: I got a new grill this week after my old one sort of fell apart as I was trying to clean it. It was quite the endeavor to get it to the back yard and put it together. The shipping weight was 250 pounds. Now I know why it was so expensive, it was packed with a tree’s worth of cardboard. I got all the inner pieces of cardboard into the recycle bin but I still have the gigantic box the whole thing came in. Fortunately, my grandson, Scoot, came over and lent a helping hand. He’s a good boy! That good boy is getting married in 4 days! Grill a couple of porterhouse steaks on it Friday night.

TV: We started on the 4th and last (available) season of Money Heist (Netflix) Friday night. Just finished the season finale of Yellowstone (Paramount) this week. WOW!

Weather: After a pretty nice week of lower temps and lower humidity things are heating up again.

The week: I’ve been working on some small projects around the house. I’ve been power-washing sidewalks and a small section of the driveway, and cleaned and painted a door frame. I went to take my gas grill apart for a good cleaning and the insides pretty much fell apart as I was removing them. Some pieces were rusted away. So, I looked up replacement parts that I could see needed replacing and once the cost added up to more than $300 I decided it’s time for a new grill. I got online and ordered one. Taking the old one apart and getting most of it into trash containers was quite the project, but I got it done and the trash man came on Friday and there is no sign of the old grill.  The new grill should be here in about a week.

TV: We’re still watching Money Heist (Netflix).  We really haven’t watched much else besides Yellowstone (Paramount).

Weekend Open Mic

Weather: We had a hot and very wet week which ends today (Saturday) as a cold front brings in cooler and dryer weather for the coming week.

The week: I cleaned up a lot of small and a few large branches this past week.  I was sore from doing that but I think the exercise was good for my back. Not much planned for the coming week, but since it’s supposed to be pretty nice I may try to find a project.

TV: We’re watching Money Heist (Netflix) 7.5/10.  It’s a Spanish series that was dubbed into English and the subtitles barely match the dialog. There are four sections or seasons and we’re into the second season.
I found out that Allen Funt’s What Do You Say To A Naked Lady an adult version of Candid Camera is available on Amazon Prime.  I want to watch that as I recall liking it when it first came out in 1970.

Websites:  I made a few small changes to the websites including updating the donate button on B&P.  Thanks to those who took my hint about trying out the button to make sure it works.

Weekend Open Mic

Weather: We’re in for unseasonably cool weather for the first week of August. I could sure get used to this kind of weather. My fear is that we’ll pay for this before long.

TV: We just finished the 3rd and final season of Wanted (Netflix) 7.5/10.  We just started the second season of In The Dark (Netflix) last night. 
I finished The Last Dance (Netflix) 9/10.  I really enjoyed this show about Michael Jordan even though I’m not a big basketball fan. Not sure what we’re watching next.

Weather: In a word: HOT… then throw in some storms!

The week ahead: I really don’t have any big plans for the weekend. I have a couple of steaks to grill.   I might change the oil in my lawn tractor, but otherwise, it’s too hot to do much outside. 

Me: Next Friday I’ll be celebrating completing another trip around the sun.  I’ve made a lot of those trips. My back is finally quite a bit better… probably 90% back to normal, though I still don’t have a lot of stamina and can’t do anything for a long time.  Friday morning I was thinking that I feel better than I have in the last month or two.  Then within a couple of hours, I was aching.  LOL  I guess that comes with all those trips around the sun.

TV: We finished the second season of Imposters (Netflix) 8/10.  I enjoyed it. We watched one episode of Hinterland (Netflix).  Not sure what to watch next.

Weather: A warm weekend and a hot week coming up. They say it might hit 100°F next weekend.

The week: Going to dinner with friends on Saturday. Not much else planned.

TV: We finished Marcella (Netflix) 7.5/10.  We watched The Healer (Netflix) 7/10.  Watched one episode (which I think is a single movie like episode of Hinterland (Netflix) 7/10  I think the episodes are all different stories, but I’m not sure.  Then we started on The Imposters (Netflix) 8/10 so far but only a couple of episodes in. We’ve also been watching Yellowstone (Paramount Network) 8.5/10.

Weekend Open Mic

Weather: A hot and humid but at least dry 4th of July here.

The week: We really don’t have any plans for the weekend except maybe working outside since I’m finally starting to feel better.

My aching body:  It’s been three rough weeks since I threw my back out.  Then I had episodes with sore joints in my shoulders and hips.  I had upped my anti-inflammatory meds (doctor’s advice) and they finally started kicking in Thursday and Friday.  I was still pretty weak and couldn’t stay up on my feet for too long.  Friday I did some yard work and did a lot more than I thought I’d be able to do. I did have to take several breaks but I really think I’ve turned the corner on this and can see the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. Yay!

TV:  We watched Hamilton (Disney+) Friday night. WOW… lots of verbiage! It was very good.  We’re on the 3rd season of Marcella (Netflix) 7.5/10.  I think I liked the first two seasons better but the third is growing on me.  Up next: Probably Hinterland and The Imposter.
