Well, they say the government has been shut down! Does that mean it no longer exists? Does it mean I no longer have to obey its laws? That would be nice!

I will be incommunicado for a few days after today. Library will close for both Christmas and Christmas Eve (Those librarians love to take every holiday off they can get away with!). And tomorrow I will be celebrating my birthday: the big 7 0 !

Took a bad fall and its was my fault.Be at the hospital in the morning.No bones broken,but deep cuts that keep bleeding.I'm a microbe icecream cone .Cool and cold.I'm getting to be a mountain man in my van. 2018 is ending up making me weak.Very depressed too.What to do? I will end up "the poor Jew" Friends I have very few.Being deaf none that I can speak too.I talk to myself all of the day.I forget what I say. Well I do remember an arguement I had with I this morning,but I can't remember if I won or what it was about.Life is not easy when reaching 91.I use to have fun. Bert



Take care of yourself, Bert. There is no excuse for falling, because there is no ice down there! So far we have been lucky, and there has been no ice or snow here either.

Now 41F here in Gresham as of 4:30 PM. Sky clear. Wind northeast at 4 mph. Humidity 75%.

Ducks won the Red Box Bowl in San Francisco today in a defensive battle 7 - 6 ! I think Gang Green is back!

Happy New Year everyone!

Now to go buy some beer!

That step should not have been there! Sounds like somebody is liable! Hopefully the city!

Had a nice New Year at home. At least one bowl game, the Citrus Bowl, was put on free television.

So far this winter has been extremely mild! Now 52F here in Gresham as of 2:00 PM. Overcast sky. Was raining earlier. Wind south at 7 mph. Humidity 68%.

Stock market took another dive today! Things are not sounding good. Apple stock is in the toilet this morning! Good thing I dumped mine a couple months ago! Gold and silver are rising. I think the time that come to make a move into them.

Kim has disappeared!

Kim disappearing? Let me know? Unlike Sandy Kim seemed dependable. I'm getting advice to jest keep my money in Chase. Bert

Bad advice. I have already made a couple of bucks in palladium in just the couple of minutes before the market closed today!

Kim called last night. Since her phone's battery had not been working, she had gotten confused even about what day it was, and showed up at the buffet a day late! But Best Buy has got her phone working again, and everything is back on track now.

A damp but mild day here in Gresham. Cloudy. Temp 50F. Wind east at 6 mph. Humidity 76%. Chance of rain 15%.

Dreary day here in Gresham. The weather bureau is predicting a big storm tonight with winds up to 60 mph and lots of rain, and snow in the mountains! Now intent to get back home early. Now 47F as of 1 PM. Wind east at 15 mph, expected to switch to south when it really starts blowing hard! Humidity 71%.

Be prepared for power outages, they are saying!

I know the feeling. My floor is carpeted, so most stuff doesn't break when it hits the floor.

The big wind storm passed through about 11 PM last night! Lights flickered a lot, but stayed on. I had a flashlight within reach, and candles ready. Wind in nearby Troutdale was recorded at 48 mph. No trees blew down near me, only branches. The lid blew off the giant cooler I keep on my back patio, so I had to go out and put it back on. Other than that, no problems. Got a little warmer when the storm came through, up to 49F.

Now 40F as of 1:15 PM here in Gresham. Overcast with light rain. Wind south at 10 mph. Humidity 88%.

Pleasant day so far. Sun through clouds. Got a chance to redeem containers and walk across town. Now 45F as of 1:15 PM here in Gresham. Calm now, but hard east wind expected to be coming soon. Humidity 69%. Over on the west side of Portland, icy roads caused some accidents this morning.
