My stupid little Eeepc has a nasty virus. I have messed with it for 2 days now, but I think I have finally got it under control - maybe. It's still there, but I think I have it where I can at least use the little computer without too much trouble. Hell, I'm using it now and it seems ok.
So today is Memorial Day. I plan on BBQing later, but in the meantime, it's a continuation of the yardwork we started yesterday...pulling and gathering dead fronds, trimming trees, spraying roundup, spreading fertilizer, planting veggies, moving the sprinkler around the yard...etc. But yesterday was special...every year, I pour an entire bottle of roach poison down this small hole in the backyard where our septic tank is. I pour, then I run for cover....the roaches SWARM out! It is SO nasty and it continues for a few hours...crazed, poisoned roaches scampering crazilly all over the yard. But I love it :)
Anyone who lives in Florida knows how the roaches are here. It doesn't matter if you have an entire cleaning staff and a hermetically sealed house - they get in. So, once a year in the beginning of the summer, I pour...and pour....and watch as 50-100 (I'm not kidding) roaches die a slow death. It was the high point of my day yesterday.
If I make it to Mack Cycle today to get the little one some training wheels for his new bike, I think we'll go for a nice ride.
Enjoy the day, but please, stop for a moment and remember what today stands for!
