Monday - Hot.  Up around 103 I think, but reasonable humidity.

A brilliant silvery moon in the evening.  I would think that indicates a clear sky, as compared to the red or orange moons, but so few stars were visible that it was hard to tell.  I went outside at 3am, but the moon had not yet set, and the moonlight glare off of the RV structure washed out any celestial sights.

I found my old Telrad finder box the other day, I think the Celestron 8 has an attachment plate on it already.  I'll have to see.  Not that one needs a finder for the moon, but Jupiter and Saturn are visible I think. It will be prudent to fill the yard's remaining dog holes before stumbling around in the dark...

This would have been Dad's 96th birthday. Hard to imagine. 

I remember once telling him that we were going to throw him a huge party for his 100th.  His reply was "100 years old? Don't wish that on me!"

In the morning I went into town for the shingles booster, only to discover that they had been trying to contact me as the injection had been rescheduled for Wednesday.  My fault, I hadn't checked my phone beforehand.  Bah.

Since I was in town I picked up another sun sail and ancillary hardware at Home Depot.

This was annoying, as usual, taking maybe twice as long as it should have because of mislabel and unlabeled products.  I bought a 10' piece of chain, for example, and memorized the number since I didn't have my phone and there was no pen nearby to write the number down.  But that turned out to be pointless because that number was for buying the whole spool, 100', the price-per-foot SKU was a completely different number and they had to have someone go do a stock check on it.

Later at home I spent a couple of hours cleaning up the yard - the dogs dug dozens of holes, each one needed filling and packing down. I picked up the old bones, and a bunch of other debris.  Most animals won't poop near where they eat and rest - Chihuahua's have no problem with that.

Sunday 14  July 2019
Sunday - Hot again. It was about 105F, but only 9% humidity, so the house stayed tolerable.  As in high 70s indoors, when I would run the cooler on high.

I bundled up all the dogs and their appurtenances and brought them back to S & R in the morning.  Afterwards we did some shopping in town.

S had picked up a new bread machine at the coast, only $5 at the senior center thrift shop for use there, so she gave it to me on return (she has three or four already).  We made a point of buying some bread flour and gluten whilst shopping.

It was nearly noon by the time I returned home and put away groceries, and I didn't do much for the rest of the day, just some reading. Dinner was next door, and was delicious steak.

The new anime season on Crunchyroll is pretty bad.
