June 20th    A date with Diane…….

Picked up a Kindle Fire today. It’s pretty cool. I bought it on Amazon and downloaded a few books – mostly preparedness stuff. I wonder those that read my journal 20 years from now – what will they say about my interest in preparedness? Hopefully they will say I was crazy. I just think it makes sense to be ready in case of a power outage, some major disaster, or of course if aliens invade! 

Spent some time in the garden after work. Cucumbers looking great and zucchinis are getting HUGE!! Bucket potatoes are almost ready to be harvested anytime. I continue to add to the compost pile with table scraps and a little grass from the lawn mower once in a while. As usual it has been super hot and I water the garden daily at the moment. Hope we get some rain as a couple of my rain barrels are getting low. The gardens like rain much more than city water. 

Had a third date with Diane. She is great, but not sure what the future holds. As usual I am looking too far forward AND too much in the past. Diane has two great kids from her first marriage and not looking to have a second marriage anytime soon. I seem to make her laugh and the chemistry is there – so far. Dating at almost 40 is not easy. Tonight we went to Outback. Great meal and great company. Great kiss as well!

I think she liked my new Jeep!
