Monday, Dec. 31, 2018 waiting for the new year's eve program to start on TV. I'm sitting here eating toast and drinking a glass of tomato juice laced with salt and Tabasco. I could be watching A&M play at some bowl game; but, I really don't care. I rarely get upset when any team wins or loses. Instead I have Criminal Minds Season 13 Episode 10 playing on the tube.
Recently I finish watching every (THAT'S EVERY) episode of Perry Mason and Matlock. I feel qualified to take over the defense of anyone wrongly accused of a murder. Obviously, law schools should include binge watching these two before issuing a license to practice law. Now, I am working on watching all episodes of MONK. Pretty soon I should be qualified to apply for positions as Police Chief most anywhere.
Speaking of Matlock - I love those episodes which are sprinkled with music - all types of music. That reminds me that I watched a few episodes of Peter Gunn recently...a 30 min show from the 60s, which I didn't enjoy watching - the music (jazz) is great. I mean it is really good. The bad guy on Criminal Minds just poked a man's eye out with a needle. I'm not sure I need to watch this one.
Weather was nicer today - in the 60s - light wind - but, they say colder weather is coming tomorrow. When you have an RV, all water must be drained from the system before freezing weather. I had hoped to go on an adventure before colder weather - didn't make it. So today, the wife and I drained the water system and blew air through the pipes to clear them out. It is a process which must be done one step at a time.
For those who don't know, you have 2 sewer systems on an RV: the black and the grey. Gray is just water - showers, dish water, just water. Black is the heavy duty stuff from the toilet. 2 different system. When you empty the system, one dumps the Black first using the Gray as a method of cleansing the sewer hose.
I am about to admit to a crime. Today when I was doing the blow out of pipes, water went into the Gray system as it exited the pipes. Knowing that I didn't want to leave water in the Gray tank, I pulled the gray valve and put the hose out to drain it. Gray water is not truly filthy. I had a cap on the hose - forgot to take it off.
About the time I was nearing the end, I remove the cap and let it flow - THE CRIME - out of some form of stupidity old guy not thinking - I had pulled the Black valve instead of the Gray. It had "stuff" in it. The goop flowed - or is it flew? My shoes were hit - the ground reeked. What a stupid mistake. Embarrassed I am. I had no water available to clean up the place,. nothing. The EPA will be looking for me, I know. Tomorrow I should go over there with Clorox, a brush, and several buckets of water. But, I won't.
Tomorrow is a new year full of new expectations and events - we shall leave 2018 and all my stupidity behind. I may look for a chapter of PSA to join (Pooper Scooper Anonymous).
A "STONE" is a family word for a personal story or thought, not quite an essay or short story. We moved to central Texas to be near a daughter. We are down to only one wirehair dachshund - Sadie. (Goodbye in 2021 to Oscar the ball boy and Bruno the larger twin) & my wife -- penned by a retired Texas H.S. band director - just nonsense thoughts unrelated to each other or anything other than what's happening and comments.
