On this day in 1936 (Thursday):
Made tomatoes (canned) in cooking. Got new books "Mountain Girl". (Good) Went with Mrs. [Caskoal] and looked at cars. Read -- [Dielclark].

Also stuck in this page, a newspaper clipping:
Mr. and Mrs. Bodia Married 50 years.
Mr. and Mrs. Orin Benjamin Bodia, parents of Chief Criminal Deputy Sheriff O.K. Bodia, will celebrate their golden wedding anniversary today at the home of their daughter, Mrs. Ruth L. Clausen of 600 N. 44th St.
They were married September 17, 1889, at McCook, a small community in what was then the Territory of Dakota, now the state of South Dakota.
They came to Seattle in 1907, settling in the Green Lake district, when it was a comparatively sparsely settled area, with a saw-mill operating on the lake shore. They now reside on their ranch at Bellevue. 

First rain in a while today, should be an overnight thing. 13th anniversary.

15 September 2017 (Friday)

On this day in 1936 (Tuesday):
I help Miss Hall in library 1st of [5th]. Have swell time. Commercial[sic] Club Dinner. Stayed at store till 8:00. Elwood and Buela are having a swell [today].
Today I think I finally learned what real humility is. And it sucks.

Didn't sleep well last night. I woke up at 2:30 and had a big ol' anxiety attack (or whatever) and popped a half an ambien for it. Still took a while to fall back asleep. I woke up, said "F*** it" and was fine. Workout was really good. Still not many people there.

Came home, did the usual stuff, went to Cascadia. I started on the debitage after getting more done on the SDOT report. I had some trouble differentiating flakes from shatter, but I think I got it down. Should go pretty quickly for the rest of it. 100 down, 3900 more to go. *sigh*

Lunch at NGate. Martha, the nice little asian woman at the Panda Express was very excited to tell me about her adventure with her giant pickup that wouldn't start one night and how scared she was but she called OnStar and they came right away and fixed it up. Battery. She's just a wonderful person, so happy all the time.

Left there around 1:30 to get some supplies and work more on the report at home. I got some stuff to make whiskey old fashioned sours. Turned out to be quite delicious. Good use of cheap whiskey. Also one of the usual squirrels is back. Most of them left for the summer. I know he is a "usual" because he popped right up and took a peanut out of my hand. Once we take away the rose bush all the way and make a new trellis, I'm not sure they will be able to get up there, since we also took away the pea plant frame they used to jump to and from, too.

Walked at NGate and I bought a couple of cheap (i.e. on sale) polo shirts at Eddie Bauer.

14 September 2017 (Thursday)

On this day in 1936 (Monday):
School (dear old school). [Prastisa] and went to store. Elwood and Buela are all excited and happy and all. Came home and went to bed early. 
Decent day I guess. Slept as usual (waking up a lot), and workout was kind of short and sweet. Still not many people there, I would have thought many would have started drifting back by now. Classes start on the 27th so we still have a couple weeks to go. Next week should start to pick up.

I came home and ate bagel and stuff and then went off to Whidbey. Trip up was uneventful. The place was a large compound on a high (50-60 ft) cliff. First thing I did was drive down the road a bit and find a closed trail down to the beach so I could check the landing spot (it's a tram from the cliff to the beach). The trail was definitely CLOSED with two fences, one I went around and one I went under. Wasn't too bad getting down but then I had to walk a ways to the to the right spot, using my phone to navigate to approximately the right place. It was mid-tide and coming in so I had to work kind of quickly. Got down there okay, following a bunch of coyote tracks. Then I realized I hadn't sighted a landmark from where I popped out on the beach (and a lot of it looks the same). So I started following my footprints back (very deserted beach so only mine were there) (besides the coyotes') and then found that the tide was starting to wash them away. And I have had a recurring nightmare my whole life of being stuck on a beach with a tide coming in and a cliff on one side. !!! But I made it okay. Rest of the survey went fine.

And I had a little assistant:

Name was Sophie. Really nice dog. Loved to play fetch the stick. Which we did. A lot. I'd planned on throwing the stick after every screenful but she'd keep dropping the stick closer and closer to the hole so I ended up throwing it a lot. Sweet little thing.

Anyway, trip back was also uneventful. Dropped the stuff off at the shop, including the wheelbarrow (came home first) and then had an adventure getting gas, and then home. Dinner, walk, etc.
