Went on a drive today down along the Hood Canal. What a beautiful area – it is kinda like the Ozarks on the ocean. Lots of trees changing color, windy roads (can’t wait to get my bike to do that!), cheaper gas (I paid $3.42 on the Res!).
After my drive, I came back to Sequim and went to the Rec Center to enjoy the hot tub, pool, and wet and dry saunas. It is a nice facility and I am going to get a membership so I can go all the time and save some money doing so. It is reasonable for what they have. On top of all the water features, they have lots of workout equipment, a circuit room, and racquetball courts, and all of it is included.
For some reason I meet complete strangers and they tell me the most personal things. Why in the hell this happens I have no idea but I would like to know. I have had people tell me about how much money they have in the bank, very intimate relationship details I do not care to hear, what an asshole their ex is and why… and many other things. While I was there in the hot tub this afternoon this girl started talking to me. I had to carefully move a little closer to hear her because I did not have my hearing aids in but obviously she wanted to talk about something since she did not stop. Turns out she is in high school (which I figured and is why I was hesitant to move closer but there were plenty of people around) and her dad is a Sheriff. Now I have nothing to worry about because I don’t roll like that so get that thought outta your mind. I guess she needed to talk to someone and I happened to be the one today. She was a nice kid and seemed to have a good brain, but a bit confused about something so I tried to steer her toward what her dad was saying (which was reasonable) and she saw it that way more clearly after I explained it a bit differently. We said “later” and parted ways. It is kinda like the Psychiatrist booth in the Peanuts cartoons, but I have no sign so I do not know how they all come to me. Perhaps I am a crazy magnet. I am pretty sure that is a distinct possibility for many reasons but I am not naming names.
I finished up the last couple of lines of lyrics to the song I started last night that John sent me music for. We will see how it goes and possibly get it posted soon. My mixer has a ground issue so it has a hum. Now that I think about it, perhaps it is the computer humming. I guess I need to look into it more.
