Or happy get drunk and pretend to be Irish day, here’s some green food coloring to put in your lager.
I picked up a six of Fat Tire to celebrate since I got my Guinness last week, we have corned beef and cabbage, and we also got a lot of random food items because they were on sale. Now that we actually have a bit of income we buy ahead when possible for non-perishable items. Speaking of Guinness, a good pairing is chocolate ice cream and Guinness, they go really well together.
And the cat is demanding attention, so I have to move the keyboard out of the way.
And while I was moving the keyboard out of the way there was a NASCAR race in California, where Rowdy Busch won his 200th NASCAR Touring Series race, and another in Florida by tape delay, but NHRA instead of NASCAR so quarter-mile sprints at a time instead of 400 miles in one bite, and multiple classes so I can’t tell you who won because it was a bunch of people and I still have a terrible memory for names. I can remember Robert Hight won Funny Car, but that’s the only name that stuck other than Conrad Kallita as the car owner for the Top Fuel car because Connie Kallita was driver of the Bounty Hunter car back in the late ’60s and I used to see the car in the magazines of the day so the name stuck for more than 50 years…
This is going to be a busy week as far as getting out of the house. I have another check to deposit Monday and bus tickets to buy, then I have the many-times rescheduled fasting blood draw Wednesday, then Thursday I have an appointment to see if I can qualify for free Lasik, if I can even get the procedure. I won a drawing I entered at North Texas Irish Festival, so if I can get the procedure done, I may have to only wear glasses when I need to do close work like reading or using a computer. That’s only if I can actually benefit from the procedure, because I use a really strong prescription and there may not be enough cornea to sculpt to correct my vision. But anyway, lots of trips away from Casa de El Poeta this week.
I got some parts for the Sprint-T in yesterday but I’m holding off on taking the pictures until I get the nuts and bolts together to show how they fit in the rest of the car, a little bit. These are the Heim joints that connect the front ends of the 4-links to the axle brackets, and allow the axle to articulate as the car leans in turns. When I get the bolts I’ll bolt the brackets to the rod ends and take the pictures.
I have to do some things early tomorrow, so this is time to put either this post or me to bed, and if you’re reading this then I decided to put the post to bed first.
