Yesterday, I started out the day by attending the Rio Rancho Seventh Day Adventist Sabbath School and Church services. This week’s church service was led by Crestview SDA school, and the little kids put on a play. It was fun, and the kids enjoyed performing.
In the afternoon, we went to Annapurna to write and read, as has been our tradition for several weeks now. I nearly completed the latest issue of the Society for Industrial Archeology Journal, and did a little catching up on some other things related to my computer.
In the evening, we went to Solid Grounds and listened to a talented bluegrass band. I forget their names, but they were quite good.
Yesterday, I spent the morning at the Rio Rancho Seventh-Day Adventist church. I gave the devotional, and then led my first Sabbath School class. This week’s lesson was on tithing, and we had some good discussions.
In the late afternoon, JoAnna, Joey and I went to Annapurna for tea. While I was there, I wrote several chapters in my latest fiction novel, and was quite pleased with my progress.
I also added a “LabVIEW” section under engineering, as well as the “Cavendish Experiment” under that tab. I will add more LabVIEW projects in the future.
In the evening, we went to Solid Grounds Coffee House, as we normally do on Saturday nights. This week, there was a guitarist that was pretty good, though I can’t remember his name.
Yesterday, I spent the morning at the Rio Rancho Seventh Day Adventist church for both the Sabbath School and regular worship service. This week, we had a special service about Religious Freedom throughout the world. We are truly blessed to be allowed to worship when and how we want in this country.
In the afternoon, JoAnna, Joey and I went to Annapurna for lunch and to do some reading and writing. I finished Part II of Atlas Shrugged- this being my third or fourth time reading it.
In the evening, we went to Solid Grounds and heard Howling Coyotes play. They are a bluegrass band here in Albuquerque, and they always put on a good show.
Yesterday, I spent a good part of the Sabbath at the Rio Rancho Seventh-Day Adventist church. I first led the devotional for Sabbath School. Then I attended Sabbath School and church service. Soon after the church service, I attended a dedication for the new youth area, which looked really nice. I went home and had some lunch, and then came back for Adventist Youth.
Unfortunately, Adventist Youth was mostly people older than I. Hopefully, that will change.
In the evening, I did quite a bit of housework, and then called JoAnna and chatted with her for several hours. I think she is having fun at her show.
Yesterday, I started out the day by participating in a Society for Industrial Archeology board of directors call, as I am still on the board. It mostly concerned details of the upcoming tours and conferences.
After that, I attended Rio Rancho Seventh Day Adventist Church for Sabbath school and church service. This week, one of the elders talked about “old folks”, and it was quite entertaining. After that, we had potluck lunch.
In the afternoon, I primed some brass for my .38. After sundown, I started rearranging the TV room. I think it looks much better. I moved the drafting table against the wall instead of sticking out into the room. It provides better circulation and better light, as well, as the table always had stuff on it that blocked both of these from my computer desk.
Yesterday, I started out my day by attending the Rio Rancho Seventh Day Adventist Sabbath school and church services. This week was 13th Sabbath for us, as the communion service and such were delayed because of the holidays.
After church, I went home and found that Dog-Dog had escaped. Joey captured him, but it meant that I had to fix the area where he was digging under the gate to escape. I dug a trench and filled it with cinder blocks, then covered it back up with dirt. Hopefully, this will deter him from escaping in the future.
In the afternoon, Joey and I did some reloading. We sized, trimmed and deburred .38’s for several hours.
In the evening, we went to Solid Grounds Coffee House to listen to the music. This week, it was three ladies that called themselves “Jeez LaWeeze” and they were fun. While I was there, I did some free writing in a fiction story I started over the Christmas break.
Yesterday, I spent the morning and the early afternoon in the Rio Rancho Seventh Day Adventist church. We had Sabbath School, church service, and then potluck, so it was a good day. The lesson was on Daniel 8, and we are working our way through Daniel one chapter at a time.
In the afternoon, I played with guns, cleaning a few of them up and unjamming my M1. I don’t know why, but sometimes it doesn’t extract, and the bolt remains locked. The only way to unjam it is to slam the bolt back by tapping it with a mallet until it unlocks. I disassembled the rifle entirely this time, and gave it a good cleaning. Hopefully, that will prevent future problems, though I will test it this spring.
In the evening, we went to Solid Grounds Coffee House and listened to some bluegrass music and had a good time.
I also learned that a former student of mine passed away on Thursday. I can’t really believe it. I just saw him a few months ago when he toured our department.
