It's a new day and I'm playing catchup ... catch up on my grilled cheese quota, catch up on some laundry, catch up on vacuuming and cleaning out the fridge. I picked up a few things at Fred Meyer to make a macaroni salad with a Mexican twist and went on the hunt for a small barbecue. Seems I'm always looking for the wrong things at the wrong time of year ... I didn't find a single one. Any suggestions for a good one??
Even with every adjustment possible, it was a little too much wind. It pulled me around the beach rather handily. At least I got in a little practice before the winds kicked up to 25 mph, when I was heard to utter "oh crap" ... and finally put it away. That was pretty disappointing, but there's always another day, like maybe this morning.
I happened upon a great idea on the world wide web yesterday ... how to clean your windshield so the bugs will just slide off, starting with some 0000 steel wool to clean what's been hanging out there ever since I bought my rig. Once polished and clean, wipe on a couple layers of Rainex, then wipe it off again with a wet rag. I've actually used Rainex before but it seemed to smear the windshield. To help all that hard work last longer, wipe a little Rainex on your wiper blades. I thought I'd try it this week and see how it goes, that is if I can get my ladder out of the belly of the beast.
Now that the crowds have thinned out, I also want to check out the Oregon Aquarium just down the road and hit a few of the tourist traps around town. There's nothing like a walk through Pirate's Plunder or Things Rich and Strange.
