Old Router

Been having intermittent home wifi issues for about a month now.  Sometimes I had a signal but couldn't connect. A few days ago the problem became continuous.  Replacing the cable modem brought things back to intermittent. Replacing the router seems to have fixed the issue.  The router was probably about 13 years old.

The Boss ordered the router on-line.  During setup my laptop screen came up in Japanese, I think.  Had to phone the manufacturer for help. I think the range is slightly less, but we now have a lot more band width.

Well Crap

Made it to the range for a couple of hours yesterday.  Being interested in the velocity variation between 3 different pistols and the SUB2000, all with 9mm chambers and different barrel lengths.  I got less than halfway through the test when my chronograph malfunctioned.  I didn't pay enough attention and a bullet clipped the back sensor.  Crap! Looks like I need to order a new body assembly.

Oh well, at least got a little trigger time.

Outside Today

The Boss went outside today for the first time since her spine surgery.  With the help of a walker she made 2, 200 feet circuits with a rest between.  She paid for it later with extra pain.  That's one tough lady, maybe a bit too tough.

POTUS and Cultural War

So we finally have a POTUS that apparently has the health of the country as his top priority, and makes every effort to do what he said he would do.  How refreshing is that?  I probably would not like him as a person, but as far as the above is concerned, he's the best president in my lifetime. In fact he's so good for us that the left continually attack him for any reason at all. 

The cultural war has escalated over the past couple of decades.  On one side are those that hate the USA and apparently want us to sink to the lowest world wide common denominator.  On the other are those that recognize how unique and wonderful this country has been, and hopefully will continue to be.

If the left has their way we will loose our individual independence with Gov controlling everything.  The first step is to disarm the population.  And that may well convert the battle of words into a bloody war.

Back Home

She had her spine surgery Friday, then back home Sunday.  So I've been her 24hr caregiver.  She has 3 rows of staples in her back and one row in her belly, all vertical.  If she takes enough medication to kill the pain, it puts her to sleep.  Most of the time she tolerates the pain, by taking a half dose. Yesterday she had a visit from our brand new grandson.  That put a smile on her face. She's not doing too bad all things considered.

Yesterday the guys came and installed the air hockey and pool tables.  It's been decades since I played any pool.  That was obvious when I started knocking balls around.

Third of 3

Last Friday the boss endured a 4 hour surgical procedure.  They put 2 rods across 3 vertibrae on the back side and a 'cage' with 2 disc replacements on the front side of her spine.She'll be wearing a back brace when up for about 6 weeks.  The surgeon said she might be able to ride her horse again mid to lat spring.  Hope he's right.  She loves riding her horse on the trails, and it's the only activity that we do together that we both like.

I'll be her caregiver for a while.

That's her third, and I hope final, surgery in three months.

Tough on Old Farts

I'm 68 and the Boss is 65, and we've been caring for our 5 year old grandson for 2 days.  He's staying with us while mom & dad are in the hospital with the new baby.  Sure is tough on us old farts, especially since the Boss is in constant pain because of her back.  (She's having spine surgery in 6 days) Sure am glad our boys grew to be responsible men.  I don't know if we have what it takes to raise grandchildren like so many others do.
