Tuesday turbulence

Tuesday began with me leaving Buffalo Wild Wings after a few hours there and with the Cardinals still trailing the Chargers. That ended well, with Arizona completing the comeback and prevailing 18-17.

I did get a few hours of sleep and I got almost all of my work done before checking out of the Courtyard Briarcliff just before 11. I went to Buffalo Wild Wings to get some wings since it was Wing Tuesday, when wings are 60 cents each. I got to see LIz one more time before going west, which was nice.

I got 30 wings to go, 15 medium and 15 hot. I like traditional buffalo flavored sauce, but I did order some of the Korean BBQ in the restaurant. The Korean BBQ is a limited time sauce, one of several Buffalo Wild Wings has rolled out in 2014. The three they had over the summer were all bad, but the ghost pepper was especially horrible. That one was THREE TIMES hotter than blazing, the hottest sauce normally on the menu. And the blazing is about 50 times hotter than a jalapeno pepper.

I thought I had all of my work done. Or so I thought.

Elaine Mercer, Frank’s wife, sent me a Facebook message just as I neared the eastern Manhattan exit (K-177) asking me about the last page for the Smith County Pioneer. I thought i had uploaded it to the FTP, but apparently not.

The good news was I wan’t that far away from Junction City, where there is a Starbucks. I was able to pull off 15 minutes later, sit down and have it all done in under 10 minutes. All was well.

I went to the first varsity volleyball match between Russell and Southeast of Saline tonight. The Trojans won 25-13, 25-15. I didn’t stay because (a) it was way, way too hot in that gym and (b) I was dead tired.

The lights are flickering. There is a severe thunderstorm very near Russell. Time to sign off for a little bit.
