I'm blessed with being too churchy, I guess. Thought I had it on the third word...missed it by ONE FREAKING LETTER...

I always find it funny when watching idiot driver/motorcyclist videos and I recognize the highway. That's happened to me a few times.

I've been known to watch these sometimes. They usually label city/state/country. One time it just said Iowa. I paused it to read the green highway sign. It said the next exit was for Eddyville - Fremont. i.e. - the exit we used off of 163 to get "home" in Ottumwa. Something happened to a dump truck going the other way of the cammer, and it veered into the grassy median, tearing up a lot of grass and dirt. Never hit the person with the camera.

I'm good at the level I'm at. I have fun with it right now. If it was a lot harder, it would be more work, less fun. Mama ain't got time for that!

New furnace is in. Unsure how it actually is. Supposed to be 96% efficient versus our old 90%. Not sure how much that matters.

Tried a different strategy with wordle this morning: more of eliminating letters, especially vowels, than guessing the right ones. Still took me four tries, but kind of cool how it worked out because finally I didn't inadvertently use a "not today" letter more than once.

Had letters 2, 3 & 5 on the second word. Just about ran out of time with my legitimate guesses. And I didn't even screw up and re-use wrong letters. Yikes!

Just witnessed maybe the dumbest moment in game show history. Watching Family Feud and the first question was name a dwarf from snow white that you wouldn't want as your defense lawyer. One side buzzes and says grumpy on the board but not number 1. Other side gets a guess and says sneezy not on the board. It's a question with 6 answers. All the side that won the right to play is name the other 5.

They name 4 doc, happy, dopey, sleepy and along the way get 3 strikes for guesses bumpy, lumpy and stinky. Goes to the other side to steal and I can't remember what they said but it was wrong. How between 10 people they can't remember bashful!

Stinky was the eighth dwarf, but they made him sleep in the barn.
