Power loss in Fort Worth

 It was just a little storm .. about 3 AM .. I did not hear any thunder and was not aware of any lightning.  Then BANG and we lost power.  
  I waited a little bit to see if we would get power back .. no power .. no internet .. What the hell am I going to do without Internet?
  There was another loud bang.  I decided to take my new Panasonic FZ300K out for a test.  It is “splash proof.”  
  I am doing something wrong … This camera is great in low light and I am getting bad photos in low light.  I need to read up on the camera or check out some YouTube videos.  
Graham Houghton has a great YouTube site on photography and has a complete FZ200 series and has a FZ300 series.


Getting a new box and power

   The power and light people had to put in a new box.  We did not get power back until about 8:30 AM but I was so glad to get back to my  porn Internet that I did not care.

    Looks like it is going to rain all day today.  Hilary and Russ will be out looking at apartments.
    Russ has decided that he wants his own apartment.  So not only will he have my cat, Rusty, but I will be all alone.  
    It will be good for him to have his own place.  
    The problem is that Darlene and James live next door and they would like to move in here.  It would cut down our costs.  We would all have extra money each month for the first time. 
     It sure would be nice for me to have some extra money each month .. But on the other hand .. Darlene is my ex-wife.  My son, James, … well … I might have to spend that extra money on antidepressant meds for myself and get medical treatment for problems from living with them.

     My lease is up in March and Darlene’s lease is up in April.


Home Alone .. They forgot the Old Man

 In a few hours Russ has to leave here for his new job.  Hilary will be going with him to save the cost of an Uber.  He will go to work at his new job and Hilary will find a motel. Then tomorrow they he will have to find an apartment.  He does not have a car so the apartment has to be near his new job.  The apartment has to be within walking distance or on a bus line.
  A lot of stuff has to be done…  Find an apartment .. come up with rent, deposits and get everything approved.  
  I am going to be here alone.  My lease is up in March, I think, I might move to live with Russell if he gets a two bedroom and two bathroom apartment and if he would want that …He might want to on his own.  He might want someone living with him to help with the cost.  I am not going to know … I guess it does not matter right now.
    Rusty will be here with me until Russ gets an apartment.  Rusty cries when Hilary and Russ leave.  Russ loves Rusty but I think it would be better for Rusty to be here.  I am home 99% of the time.  Not sure how Rusty will do with Russ at work.
    I guess Rusty will be very happy when Russ gets home from work.
    Having Rusty here, with me, would be  hard on me.  My arthritis hurts .. bending down or getting down hurts like hell.  So feeding and doing the cat litter things are painful.  

    When Russ gets his apartment … I am not sure what Hilary is going to do …  She has a sailboat and some land in Texas that she needs to take care of …  She has a husband and a sail boat in Sweden that she needs to take care of … She has some medical problems that she needs to have taken care of and her doctor is in Sweden …
     Russ has to make a lot of decisions.  Hilary is going to have a lot of stress.

Seismic event here

 Russell, my grandson, and I moved here in 02/2011 and share this apartment.  Russ is 27 years of age and works in retail sales.  He just pays for the Internet service here.
  He works full time and he just got a big promotion and a pay increase of $9.00 an hour.  But they want him right away at the new store and it is not even in Fort Worth or Dallas.  He is going to have to get his own apartment.  

  I will be OK. I just need to come up with an extra $60.00 or so a month to pay for the Internet.  
  But he is going to have to come up with a ton of money to get his own apartment.  Hilary, his mother, is here and she is going to help with the money … But it is going to be hard on Russ and Hilary.  
  I can not help.  I just live Social Security payment to Social Security payment.  

  The next few days and weeks are going to be hard and stressful.  
   I am going to be living alone in a two bedroom and two bathroom apartment.

   Rusty, the cat, loves Russ and he loves the cat.
   Rusty will be moving with Russell.  He will have to get an apartment and pay the pet fee but Rusty is going to be moving.  I am going to be alone.

The spinning cat

Rusty is a sweet cat and she loves attention and love.  But she is a pain the butt.  She is under my feet all the time.  She wants to jump up and get on my desk.  In the mornings most of all.
Now she likes to get on the back of my chair.  The first time she did it I decided to go around and around to get her off my chair.  She dug her claws into the chair and even bit the chair to stay on.  But she loves to go around and around.
When Hilary goes back to Sweden I am going to have to feed her and clean the cat litter.  With my  arthritis that hurts.  Rusty is not just a pain in the ass She is a pain in the neck, shoulders and back now.
