I am alive challenge / one day as a shark DAY 28

Got my Jeep back finally!

It's been like a week and a half since I brought it to the first dealership. Finally, it was done today. Last weekend, they told me it would probably be done around Tuesday. Then, the part didn't come in until Thursday night. Or that's what they said, anyway. I have no way of verifying that and it seems like the likely excuse they'd use if it was simply taking longer than expected. I didn't need the car for anything, so I wasn't in the mood to be pushy about it.

It told me there were going to be storms.

Storms changed my plans

My wife and I were supposed to go see a friend's band play on a boat tonight, which would have been the first time I'd seen live music in quite some time. Right around the time we would have been leaving, some really bad storms rolled in. A lot of lightning and thunder. I'm not sure if the trip got canceled officially, but we decided not to go. I don't think it would've been much fun being on the boat in the middle of a thunderstorm.

That's disappointing, but there will be more chances to go out and do things... maybe.

Splinterlands update: good rewards

I got good rewards today playing as @sharkmonsters and @no-hay-problema. The first example is 3 cards, one of which is gold. The second one contains a 2000 DEC chest. Those chests were always cool, but now that DEC is worth more than it "supposed" to be, it's even cooler.

Random observations

This is just a random observation, but look how much cooler the Bone Golem card looks when it's gold foil compared to a regular version.

Beardless sharks

I trimmed the beard off, but now I already look like I could use a shave. Since I only really have to leave the house to go to the store and not much else lately, I'm not sure I'll be able to get myself to care that much. Mostly, I cut it off because it was starting to look patchy in spots where I couldn't seem to stop futzing with it.

Great to see you alive and well Mark, and really nice to hear you got your Jeep back, but sorry to hear you had to cancel your plans, being on water in a thunderstorm can't be great though, and thanks for sharing about your Splinterlands gaming, you are way ahead of me, enjoy your day and stay safe, awesome and alive.

Sorry you couldn’t go out to the boat because of the weather. Nice to know your car could give warnings about an impending storm. Mechanics here also fond of giving dates and pushing it back always. You got your car now so no worries.

To my surprise, the boat cruise still happened. Some friends still went. I don't regret our decision to stay home, though.

The car thing is mostly my fault. I made the mistake of telling the shop that I was in no hurry. I've been working from home lately anyway.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a great day!

@sharkthelion, is that really you with the beard?
looks like your ancestor's photo in contrast to the one without the beard.
But both look nice though.

storms do change things and it is dissappointing when your plans go for a toss.

i don't play Splinterlands, but its good to see your progress in it.

take care and stay safe

happy week ahead.

No, those photos I make for the headers are just my face transplanted into other photos. :) That is a really old photo of someone else.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great day and a great week as well!

It's not a nice idea to be around rivers and seas during such periods. It's even the target area as there could be increase in the sea level.
Congratulations for being on the spotlight.
Stay safe

You did the right thing cancelling your trip in the midst of a thunderstorm. Hope that the main event was also cancelled.

Congratulation on your success in the splinterlands.

I'm glad you are well and alive, a pity you missed your trip to that boat because of the storm, but there will be other opportunities, the good thing is that you already got your Jeep. Regards.

I say congrats to you in both sides.

  1. For getting your Jeep back on track and secondly
  2. For being on the spotlight today.

The weather must have been very bad depending on the info displayed on you screen.
Hmm.

I like the gold splinterlands Bone Golem card color scheme better than the standard. It makes it pop. I wish I had more gold cards no matter what type. LOL
