SEP 15, 21 .. TO FEEL GOOD .. DO GOOD .. A DAY IN PATTI’S LIFE

Yesterday .. Tuesday the 14th of September 2021.

Patti was up at 0430 hours (4:30AM in the early, dark, Alaska morning).

Easy? Guess Again Tonto!! For one thing, knowing you have got to be up and going at 0430 hours (4:30AM) you don’t really sleep well!!

Patti drove across town (say a good 20 minute drive) to pick up a friend.

Oh!! By the Way!! It was raining yesterday morning at 0500 hours (5AM).

Patti then drove her friend back across Anchorage to have her at the Surgery Center at 0600 hours (6:00AM). Yes it was still raining.

After getting her friend into the system at the Surgery Center, Patti came home and crashed on our couch (restlessly sleeping) awaiting a phone call from the Surgery Center telling Patti that her friend’s Surgery was complete and to come and pick her up.

Patti then picked her friend up at the Surgery Center, took her to a pharmacy for some medication and then home (back across Anchorage).

In the mid-afternoon we two crashed and slept for three or so hours.

All in a Patti Day.

Much Love My Dear One !! Cap

 

 


SEP 14, 21 .. WHAT IS IT THEY SAY ? NEVER SAY NEVER !

Sometime this past August, the 2021 season for the television game show called Jeopardy ended. Patti and I began following Jeopardy last April after it was announced that Aaron Rodgers (the Quarterback for the Green Bay Packers NFL team) was going to guest host Jeopardy for two weeks. And? We have continued (almost daily) to watch Jeopardy. At the end of this past ‘2021 season’ one winner (Matt Amodio), had won 18 consecutive shows amassing over one half a million dollars ($574,801) in winnings. So, for perhaps four weeks Patti and I have been counting down the day to the start of this new season on Monday, September 13th, 2021.

We could hardly wait to see IF Matt Amodio would continue to win more games.

6pm Monday, September 13, 2021 finally arrived.

“Hot Diggety Dog Patti. It’s time for Jeopardy.”

And?

We turned on our televison set eagerly looking forward to Jeopardy and what on earth was on : Monday Night Football was on and NOT Jeopardy!

I was aggravated and so too was Patti (more disappointed than aggravated).

NEVER SAY NEVER CAPTAIN !

On a zero to 100 scale, there was a time when me being aggravated because Monday Night Football was being shown, and Jeopardy was NOT being shown, would have been a solid 100!

“THAT would never, ever happen with me!” A game show being more important than Monday Night Football! NO way!!

But last night that is exactly what happened.

What to do? 

We watched the second half of the Baltmore Ravens and the Las Vegas Raiders in an absolutely astounding game. Las Vegas won the game in overtime (and NO I am not going to bore you with the numerous details that made the game one game in one hundred games any football fan waits for).

And? After the game ..

Jeopardy came on and Patti and I had our cake and got to eat it too.

Smiling .. Cap and Patti

Oh by the way. Matt Amodio won his 19th show on Monday night and added another $67,800 to his above winnings!
