A couple pictures of life

Here are some visual representations of what I have been up to lately.

I spotted this place in Elk Grove, CA near the place I bought my new (used) trailer.

I got a great deal on remnant carpet at Home Depot!!!!


Road case

Road Case - I am in the process of gutting and customizing this road case to hold one of my drum kits.

This is my friend's cat, Old Blue. He's a good kitty.

Only $1800 for this Moog at Starving Musician.

I saw this nice Camaro in a parking lot near my house. I was there meeting an old timer who wanted to buy some insulated boots I was selling on Craigslist.

Moby and Flipper in a Target parking lot in Dublin, CA. It was 103ºF at the time I took this picture. Shitty hot. Glad I wasn't the people I saw whose car had broken down at the freeway offramp. Super shitty.

Red car.

These old ladies were quite literally talking about being old ladies with small dogs as I walked by. My mom should so totally join up with them.


I laid the remnant carpet in the trailer. I nice thin indoor/outdoor carpet. Cheap and easy (except for all the sweating I did installing it!).



I hope I'm standing in a Goodwill when the zombie Apocolapse occurs; I've always wanted to put their extensive golf club collection to good use...


A doctor's office

Installed a tool box on the front of the trailer. On sale at Harbor Freight Tools for $120 minus the 20% coupon I had = cheap!

Cross-eyed kitty tales of woe

Last week we had some of the hottest temperatures of the year so far (97°F-102°F) and look who decided to go up in the crawl space above our house? The neighbor’s cat, Kiki. This should be no big deal as Callie Meowingbutts goes up there all the time (when it is cooler) and gets down without consequence – not this cat though! No sir! No way! This cat gets stuck*!

So, forgoing the air conditioner we have running inside (that can barely keep up with the sweltering temps) I head outside after she has been stuck up there for quite a while and begin the process of rescuing her. She is panting and quite scared. The air coming out of the roof vents feels like it is 130°F or more. I feel genuinely bad for Kiki and want to get her down.

I remove the vent as carefully as I can (it’s totally fucked up now) and try and coax Kiki to come out. She is scared but at least she isn’t running away and hiding; she just stays right on the ledge. I tried pulling her out for a bit before Applesauce said she’d would pull the cat out. Up on the ladder Applesauce goes and after a few minutes she has the cat in her hands and is coming down the ladder. Kiki hits the ground running and is gone under the fence and then up and over another fence heading back to her yard.

Damn cats.



*Of course, by “stuck”, I mean too fucking stupid to go back out the way she got in.
