Richard Roehm Memorial Ranch Blog 9/29/2016

Thursday, September 29, 2016, 1915 Hrs. 81 degrees, partly cloudy.

Good evening folks!

Sorry for not posting Wednesday's (Yesterday's) blog, because of the windstorm, some rain and it being mostly cloudy that won’t help with my solar panels. That’s right, we have type of small solar panels, unlike house solar when it is cloudy or raining, it won’t charge the batteries! Everything was very low on battery charge at that time.

Anyway, yesterday, due to the upcoming weather I read about, I decided to stay here in our 2 ½ acres land all day. At about 2:45 pm, I saw a storm cloud start to form from northeast area and as it approached us I saw some “devil dusts” around it as a strong wind started up. We had a slight rain off and on that started at 4:00 pm and lasted for the next 4 hours.

Today (Thursday) I woke up at 6:45 am and weather started being nice to me, not too cold or too hot or too windy and clear skies. Nice, eh? Had me some coffee with the solo-stove and warmed up my small dinner rolls with the tea candles and open a package of honey from KFC that I saved and spread it on the rolls! Yummy!

I took a quick bath, got dressed up and left here around 9:45 this morning. I just left my solar batteries alone to let them charge up for the day.

About 20 minutes after I left as I was walking along, someone gave me a nice ride with Ford F350 Turbo Diesel Dually Truck, 6 speed manual transmission! LOVE THAT TRUCK!!! I WANT IT!!!

He dropped me off at the front of the post office and he left. I finally, I mean finally drop off the package that I was supposed to yesterday! Dumb weather, duh!

Anyway, after I dropped off the package, I went to the library to relax for a while and ready a book about the Civil War, I love that history!

I left the library at 1:20 and took a bus to Walmart to do some quick shopping. Then I went to Taco Bell for a quick lunch and took bus back to the last stop on Avenue I East and headed back to my land. My good friend saw me walking and took me home at 3:30 pm. I went to the country store to get some ice and some Fritos Lay chip to muchie on!

As soon I got back again, I was finally able to charge up this Chromebook and my phone from the solar batteries. I let it charge up for almost 2 hours so I can open this Chromebook to start the blog!

That’s about it for the day!

Have a nice Friday!

Richard Roehm Memorial Ranch Blog 9/27/2016

Tuesday, September 27, 2016 1730 hrs, 83 degrees, partly cloudy.

Good evening!

Today was “okay”ed to me. Weather was bit hot, but not too hot like it was yesterday. Woke up around 6:30 am and bit chilly about 56 degrees. Brewed up my coffee and checked messages from my Facebook. Nice, 22 messages!

I turned on our solar panel battery at 7:30 when the sun rosen up. Took a quick warm bath at 8:30 am and got my backpack packed up with ebay’s orders and left to the town at 9:40 am. Made a ½ way walking down the “country” road and someone gave me a ride until the first traffic light into the town where I can catch the bus to downtown Lancaster.

After I drop off the packages at the post office (no, I don’t go inside the post office, just the blue mail box outside of it, because these careless black ladies still working there and still being careless since January!).

I went to the donut shop and had me nice and warm  Ham & Cheese Croissant and a bottle of OJ. Then I went to the library to relax for 2 hours and caught someone I knew from the group and invited me to the another church’s “Open House” with free lunch this coming Saturday and I accepted it and he willing to give me a ride there and back.

I catch the bus to westside Wal-Mart to get me some things I needed for the next few days and catches same bus with the same bus driver to the end of the line and walk back to my land, Only walked onto 50th street east and someone gave me a ride home! Nice day today!

After I came home, drop off my backpack and switch the power plugs from the solar powered battery and walk to the country store to get me a bag of ice and some chips then headed back again. I finally settled down at 4:15 pm and fixed me nice small dinner at 5:30 along with nice hot coffee as the weather starting to cool down.

After I ate, just learn we sold 1 more item from eBay and got that pulled out from the van and will get that label printed out in the morning. Basically the weather still warm and it may still could overheat my black laptop, so I rather to have it printed in the morning while it still chilly.

That’s about it for now, tomorrow I will still head to the town to drop off 1 packages anyhow. I am not for sure what to do after that tomorrow. I still need to get my camera to get fully charge before I can use the camera to make more photos for the books and other items for the eBay updated!

G’night to all!
