  • Did a ride today to fix some uniforms, in Mpls. Then went to my favorite, Thursday, spot Key's, and had a Steak and Eggs meal, Awesome!! It was a bit windy today but, the temp was in the low 50's F. Not ideal but do-able. Tomorrow the weather sucks, Saturday , too. Sunday thru Tus. look good.

    So, Saturday, Metro Transit. Sunday thru Tuesday, Motorcycle. Monday, I might get a little wet, on the way home but, that's OK.
    Anyways, Good Night TPU! I drank a bottle of Wine, good wine, in the last hour. Now, pee, then Bed!
    Cold and Rainy Today, and tomorrow, so I am bussing to work today. I hate arriving at work soaked. I don't mind arriving at Home soaked, nor do I hate riding in the rain. But it is cold and I am going to work. Hopefully the weather will improve in May and I still can get a few rides in this Month.
    Helped my Sister for a few hours today, moving stuff around her new apartment. Then took the bike out for a ride, gas run and then out to eat. Goinna start commuting to work, again, on my Motorcycle. Tuesday is gonna be a bus day, though. Forecasted to be cold and rainy.
    Got my Tabs today and went for a ride. Ended up at a local lake and found a nice bench to sit on for a while. I had a book with me so, I read a few chapters and then rode home. I also had to call a friend, to bring a jump pack, battery went low this week, even though I ran it and recharged it to just under 13 volts.

    The weather last week was cold and rainy w/ a touch of snow mixed in. The battery turned it over for a few seconds but, then went too low to crank the engine. Fortunately I have a friend that doesn't work, she care take's for her Daughter now, and she had a little jump pack that got me going.

    A good day and I only spent $20 on the tabs. I hope tomorrow is as nice as the weather app says it will be! I had a blast riding my motorcycle again!
    OK, Good Night TPU!:rockout: :lovetpu:
    I went to get tabs for my bike. The DVS listed the downtown location as the place to get them. Got them there before...Nope, they don't do tabs...Hands me an address, on a small sheet of paper...I said you must get this question a lot, "Yea". You know why? "No." Because this used to be the place to get TABS!!.

    Wanna know why else? "What?" The website for this exact site says you all do TABS!. All those taxes, all the employees in that place. They can't do what every other DVS site does anymore? Why is that? Who do I contact to find out why? Also, why didn't I get a notification, about my Tabs?

    Government, at it's best!! I am absolutely SURE that if I ride my bike I will get a ticket, but, I have to go across town, a 25 minute ride, to get my tabs...Make it make sense?
    I over drew my account this week. Thought I was gonna have to tough it out until tomorrow. I was rationing cigarettes, ate the last of my food, last night. I inadvertently was looking through my old wallet, new wallet just holds the essentials, when I found my Quicksilver card, from Capitol One.

    I went online to check it and...I have an $1800 line of Credit on the card!! :) I had completely forgotten about this account. I rarely use it, anymore, since things were going good, until Tuesday. So glad I found it!! Now I can eat!! Which is what I am going to do, after a shower. Plus, there's a Wild game tonight!

    Win, Win, the way I see it! Plus, no interest, if I pay it by the end of the month, no problem since I am just getting dinner and a couple drinks. Also, I won't have to pay rent twice this month, the way the pay schedule was, both checks went to rent, leaving me mostly broke, all Month! :(
    Time to order something to eat and some water, for the week, or two, ahead. Not sure what I am hungry FOR, but I am Hungry!! Guess I will see what is on Door Dash...
    Off to the Local Diner for some Grub!! I'm all showered up and ready to roll!( I even shaved!) LOL
    Well, I'm back to 40 hour weeks, we'll see how long that lasts, since our new guy got through his training. So now, 3 days off!! Too bad the weather still sucks! We've had two+ days of snow, couple inches here in the city but, up North they got a foot, or more! Leave it to March to eff up your Winter! LOL
    Well, good day, so far. Slept in, till noon, got my tool roll, volt meter and a little backpack and my checkbook. Went to Walgreens for a 9 volt for the meter, stopped and got a coffee and then went to the parking garage office to pay them a couple bucks, she under charged me a little, when I set it up, last week.

    I then went down to my motorcycle and took off the seat to test the battery. It was at 12.4V, which IS actually low. I started it up and let it get warm, about 5 minutes. It was charging well, 14.3V, and when I tested it after, the battery was 13.3V. So, job done. Looks like I will be doing that again, next week.

    Well, and again for a few more weeks, until it warms up again. I don't have a trickle charger and there is no where to plug one in, at the garage I'm in. I could take the battery out, or just remove the leads but, I think a weekly start and 5 min run will be fine.

    It was good to hear it run. I can't wait to get back out in her!!:)

    Made it through another Work Week!!Today, I am doing some laundry and then heading to my favorite local diner. Last week, I was so beat I didn't even make it. In fact, I was so tired and lazy, I didn't even leave the house for 2 days! I actually ordered Toilet Paper from DoorDash! How lame! LOL

    I am feeling a bit more ambulatory, this week! :) So, just waiting for another load to hit the dryer, shower and then go. Although, since I finished Erasure, great Book(!!), I am unsure what to bring to read...I will find something, before I go. :lovetpu:
    Got through the 2 twelve hour shifts, now 3 eights and then 2 days off, rinse and repeat. The exciting thing was, I got my bike out of storage, Friday. Unfortunately, the weather went back to cold with a side of chilly! Anyways, it will warm up, eventually, and I am ready for it!
    OK well, got called into work tomorrow. Since I am broke, until Friday, and will not be able to do my Thursday late lunch, might as well go to work. So, I will be going to work on a Thursday, it's been a while since I have worked a Thursday. Could be alright! LOL Good Night TPU!
    :lovetpu:
    Three beers down, after a 12 hour day (stressful one, at that) and I am ready for bed. Good Night TPU!!!!!!!!!!
    :lovetpu:
    Went to the library to copy my license. Got the copies. Rode a bus to the Sheriff's office. Was told I needed an appointment. Called the number and was given a website. Caught a bus home, got into my place and...no licence! Freaked out for a second, then went back to the library.

    It is now an hour later than when I made the copies. I get to the copier and lift the top. My license, was still there sitting on the glass!! Get home, schedule an appointment, next week. I then find out I need a 'Color' copy of my license(?) and not only a copy of my certificate, but the original also.
    Arjai
    Arjai
    So, now, I need to re-copy my license, in color, for $2 a copy vs. .25 cents. And I need to pack my Certificate, not just the copy of it. Anyway, next Wednesday is my appointment. I also get to do it Wed. because next Wed. I have off!!! Yea, I get an extra day off!
    I am exhausted but, gotta go back to work. Gotta make it through tonight and tomorrow night then it's two days of nothing to do with work! Mostly laundry, and cleaning and going to see the Sheriff, they need a copy of my certificate, and sleep.

    Hopefully, I have enough money to go to my favorite hole in the wall, no time to check it. I gotta run and get my bus. Toodles TPU, until then...
    :lovetpu:
    Well, juggled some money around my accounts, so I can go enjoy a early dinner/ late lunch at my favorite hole in the wall. I am bringing the book, Erasure, by Percival Everett. It was made into a movie called, American Fiction, I think. The title is something similar. Anywho, I am off to eat and read! :lovetpu:
