bigbumble: (Blood Donation)
Today I earned my three gallon blood donation pin. I went out for a steak dinner to reward myself. Besides, I had to recharge my iron supply.

Week before last I went to a regular Dr. Appointment. I'm probably not going to die this year. I got my tetanus/whooping cough vaccination. The vaccination really knocked me over for a couple of days, that seems to be the nature of tetanus shots. Last week, I donated a pint of O+ blood. I'm officially at 18 pints now.

Saturday, I had my birthday party with friends and family over. Sunday I did Easter with my next younger brother, Dan, and my sister, Martha. Monday, I had an eye doctor appointment. I probably not going to go blind this year.

But for the really important news, I finished a model rocket helicopter model for 1/4A model rocket engines(teeny tiny engines)! Yay! I hope to test fly it in the next day or two.

Busy week

bigbumble: (One gallon blood donor)
Donated blood on Tuesday and got my 1 gallon pin (new userpic), yay! Spent the weekend in model rocket contest. I was the contest director. Thanks to help from my intrepid nephew, Patrick, Bumbling Brothers Flying Circus did quite well. We launched our first eggloft model with the egg carried in a balloon. Our altitude was 276 meters with the next highest at 195 meters. The egg survived.

Donated blood today. Had cookies and treated myself to a steak. One more pint and I'll be at a gallon. (Actually I'm there already, but the blood I gave in the distant past doesn't show on the current records.)

Busy days

Donated blood (O+) yesterday and got some excellent cookies and Hawaiian Punch.

On monday I picked up a clock that gongs on the hour and quarter hours. It a cheater clock that uses electronics to operate the clock and gong speaker on 2 "C" batteries. It is now set up in my basement under my stairs.

My basement retirement project is going through decades worth of boxes of stuff. About 80+% gets thrown away. By spring I hope to have things cleaned out enough so that I can work on my various hobbies with several projects going on separate tables. I filled a couple of trash bags today.

This afternoon I joined the rest of the midwest, got out the snow blower and cleared my driveway.

Now I am looking ahead to a busy weekend.

Since I wasn't killed in the crash yesterday, I decided to give blood today. Mmmm! Orange juice and cookies.
