They Say Snow Friday

The weather people love to hype up bad weather, especially storms.
 
There is a chance of snow on Friday. It could happen, but maybe not.
 
It will be one of the big stories on the 11pm news.

You Can Ski Soon

The leaves keep falling. It doesn't happen at the same time.

The colors are so bright. It won't last much longer.

Snow has fallen in Colorado. Other places are already making snow to support the ski industry.

That 1953 Chevy

While I was running yesterday, I saw a 1953 Chevy on a trailor by the side of the road.
 
My father bought one of them in 1962. It was a great car until he tried to bring us to a Red Sox game.
 
That long journey to Boston caused oil pressure issues and numerous stops along the local roads to add oil to get us home.
 
He got rid of the car after that.
 
Where did it end up?

Ride While Alive

There is a story in the news about funeral homes giving seniors a free ride to the polls on election day.
 
That seems like a nice thing to do, but it's also a good way to try and meet potential customers.
 
It's a great marketing idea.

Shirts Done

My golf shirts were finally put away today. Short sleeves are in the past.
 
That's how it is. I have no plans to travel to a warmer place this year.
 
We will have nice days before the snow starts.

Nice October 2020 Day

The weather was perfect today for golfing. The temperature was around 70. It brought out a lot of players.
 
It will be cooler this weekend with some possible rain on Monday.
 
Plans can get changed real fast this time of year. It will only get colder.

Nobody At The Library

The local library must comply with state and local pandemic guidelines in order to stay open.
 
When you call, there is a long message about reserving a spot in order to browse in person.
 
In recent weeks, I have stopped by to pick up a book on reserve. The was nobody there both times.
 
They make it too difficult to visit and scare people away.

The Final 72

It's so amazing to see autumn unfold before us.

The beautiful colors will end soon, although we want them to last longer.
 
Winter is getting here with 72 days left in 2020.

Play More Golf This Year

It was a great day playing golf with family and friends. There are only so many nice days left in this year. It's ending real fast.
 
I hope we can keep playing. There is no guarantee once we get into December.

Leveling The Cost

I installed an app on my phone called "Inflation Calculator". It's a very useful tool to compare costs in different decades. For example, $20 in 1976, would be $92.40 today. 
 
Some of the large construction projects from decades ago really cost a fortune in today's dollars.

Shoes Pull Apart

I bought a pair of black dress shoes in 2010 when my brother passed away.

They felt great when I wore them to a wedding last weekend.

After I took them off, I noticed extreme separation of the heels on both shoes.
 
Can this be fixed with some of the great glues out there? Do they really work according to the commercials?
 
We shall see

Not My Package

It's so easy to fall to scams. They test you every day.
 
I had one recently where I was told of an issue with a FedEx package. The only problem was I had nothing on order.
 
I made a mistake today when I answered a call and heard the endless nonsense on this being the last call for extended warranty for one of my prior cars. 
 
It's a lot easier to hang up.

Thick Sunscreen

I try to wear sunscreen because of some skin issues on my face. 
 
There are so many products out there. I use products recommended by my dermatologist.
 
A new cream I'm using is very concentrated. I learned that the hard way when I put too much on my face and couldn't wash it off.
 
It only needs the size of a grain of rice. Add more if needed.

Ten Weeks To Go

It seems like the middle of October which has become the starting point of the holiday shopping season.
 
I noticed that yesterday at a local pharmacy. Each aisle had a miniature winter hat with a seasonal saying on it.
 
With about ten weeks to go, it has begun.

Glasses Are Too Expensive

I spent $1,200 out of my own pocket to get two pairs of eyeglasses. They are not cheap. My prescription changed and I wanted to change glasses.
 
It's so hard to fit them to my face and head. They are still not perfect, but I hope they mold to me.
 
I've been buying glasses from the same place since 1995. I always need them adjusted after wearing them for a week or two.
