Another Day, Another Antenna

We were trying to prepare for the new antenna to be installed yesterday. By Friday night, it was clear it wasn’t going to happen. Neither of us was feeling well. I knew I wasn’t ready from a cleaning-the-house point of view anyway. And, given the wiring that needs to be completed before we can even attempt to get to the actual raising of the antenna, neither was Lion. We worked on some of it yesterday, and today (maybe) we’ll complete it.

My plan was to mow the dog’s lawn, help with some wiring, mow some more, help with more wiring, mow some more, finish any wiring, and finish cleaning. Somewhere along the way, the gardens need tending. This morning, Lion said I do a lot for him. Amen to that!

Speaking of doing things for Lion, I didn’t spank him the other night. I know he wanted me to; in that perverse way he likes to think about spanking but still hates to be spanked. Maybe it was the beginning of my not feeling well. I thought about it, then forgot, then thought about it, and then forgot again. I’ve just got too much on my plate right now with this antenna stuff. I’m hoping, once the thing is up on Tuesday (and hoping it will actually be up on Tuesday), that will be the end of antenna talk for a while. Of course, he’ll still be after me to take my test for a ham radio license. Yeah, yeah. I’ll get to it.

Next weekend is 4th of July weekend. The 4th is actually Tuesday, but close enough. Lion asked me to take the 3rd of so we’d have four days together. I call dibs on at least one of those days for doing what I want to do – nothing. I’ll do meals, but I don’t want to hear about anything else. I’m entering a vegetative state and not coming out of it for 24 hours. For real this time. I know I’ve said it before, but I’m sticking to my guns this time.

Okay. I’m off to help with antenna wires. [Lion — If you’re curious, this is the Link to the site for the antenna that Mrs. Lion will be helping install.]
