I've looked at the title "Headache Precursor" a couple times and can see that it isn't proper grammar, but it is still a headache, and I can't seem to care enough to fix it, sorry. What I'm thinking is this headache is leading to something else, not vice versa.
I had a pretty good day yesterday, starting out with a vigorous hike, which lasted 45 minutes.
August8th2012Hike-upupup Always thought this would be a great campsite. We call it the Flat Forty, meaning acres, but I think we thought it was bigger before we pruned and thinned the trees. Beautiful though isn't it?
August8th2012Hike-upto-TurkeyOutlook This is a great hike; very difficult. I had to stop and catch my breath more than once. I tried jugging it, at least through the clearer part of the forest, whoa. Maybe it was the humidity.
August8th2012Hike-wildlife-trail I kept thinking most people would call this a Game Trail, but that isn't fair to the wildlife. Anyway, I tied the fence down here to make it easier for the animals to follow their trail. In the past I noticed that from the looks of their hoof prints in the hill that they were struggling to cross the fence on the steep hillside.

Yesterday wasn't perfect, I suppose no day is. First thing I noticed when I got up and let Andy out, Buddy doesn't sleep inside, is apparently I left the new water faucet on in the garden, all night, sheesh, so much for trying to act the sustainable lifestyle. Stupid, stupid, stupid!
It is surely a rationalization, but I don't remember turning the water on. I must have. Maybe there really was a headache precursor.
When I returned from my hike, I shut off the bubble washer in the fresh biodiesel. I was pushing the process a little ahead of schedule, but when I parked the Jeep the night before the fuel lamp was on. I've done the next step a hundred times, but for god only knows why, this time I turned on the pump after I put the suction pipe in the biodiesel which is floating on water at that stage. It sucked a quart of wash water into the Jeep fuel tank before I pulled it up to the biodiesel layer.
Perhaps I should have called this BMN Stupid and Stupider.
Hindsight, isn't terrible useful, but while I was pulled off the road on Nine Mile Hill clearing water from the fuel filter because the Jeep stalled, I couldn't help but wonder why I didn't walk inside the biodiesel shed and check the suction hose position before I turned on the pump.
How about "Wasteful and Wastefuller?"
We try to be good. This counts for something, right?
Alright, I'm thinking I better step up taking the lead, helping remove the big-ass rock in Jack's septic leach field.
