Another Crazy Day in Rainbarrel Land
It's 6:00 am.. I wake up, I pee, I'm on the computer. That's an average day......... The crazy days start earlier and end later and that's the day I had yesturday ! On top of everything that a person does that operates a micro business there are some days that I think that I do more than anybody else. Being 60 doesnt help either.
Ok, I'm done belly aching. There was one thing that happened in that day that I really enjoyed and that was when a reader of my blog, from San Diego California came by to chat. (I came to Oregon in "82" but before that I lived in San Diego for many years) He had seen my website awhile back and decided the next time that he would come up to visit his son in Portland that he was going to spend some time with the Rainbarrel Man. I think we talked for about an hour. I also think we talked more about San Diego and the good ol days, than rain barrels but he left with just enough information to keep that rain harvesting spirit alive and that I will see him again in the not to distant futue.
So that took an hour out of my busy schedual, but it was well worth it.
After working into the night, I decided that was enough. (it was 9:00 pm) I bundled up a bit and went out to the fire pit, started a fire and sat as close as I could, for as long as I could, keeping warm while sipping 80 proof Black Velvet.
