I was reading this AM and the I saw that the word Redolent was the word of the day in the WordPress to write about. Well, I had never had contact with the word so I did some research and found it to be very interesting and it also has a lot of interesting relatives also. Again I like words, I lack knowledge enough to use many of them or comprehend them. If I do use them, they will have to become a part of my everyday life.
Olfactory is a relative of redolent, I would never known that it is a sensory system within the body dealing with “to smell”. I would have interpreted it as an old factory. So I learned a couple of things today. Now, a Latin Verb olère relates to smell.
A word a day keeps the dictionary away.
The clouds have begun to darken, the temperature is warm and not to humid and the expectation of rain probable. My directions are marked by obliqueness or circuitous in route, therefore I think it best that I remain in place at this time. Travel, however, not necessary, can wait until a later time. So come on clouds and distract me from movement within my thoughts and shower my space with cool atmospheric water clear and pure.
I am about to do research here at home with my computers and see what I can find that would make for a good content to ponder over and maybe later literate about in some form or another.
News of the day is lacking.
Today while sitting here trying to be smarter that a five foot piece of wire, I begin to think about what I was trying to accomplish and if in fact I was going in the right direction in my efforts. I said to myself that I was smart once a while back and so this should be very easy. Then I found some more wires to play with and my efforts compounded.
You learn in schools, at least the ones that teach you something of value, and not the ones that teach no true history, bad math, bad science, and well I guess I could say bad english which is filled with 4 letters words. I do not profess a good control of the english aspects but I do try to relearn words other than the 4 letter words that hit me in the face over the years. Enough here.
Now back on the wire knowledge. I was not able to make the wires do as I wanted them to do. Guess I was not wire smart. I use to make wire, transported wires, and I have a bunch of it, I guess I forgot to get the directions that go along with it. I took a short break and walked around within the walls of the apartment for a few minutes. I sit on the foot of the bed and looked at the 52″ TV that I thought lightning has strucked. I picked the remote up and mashed a couple of buttons. Nothing happened, the battery that I just had put in the charger was setting there and I saw that the cord was plugged into the wall socket. Then I noticed that the cord going to the TV was not plugged in. So reached down and plugged it into the socket and again mashed a couple of buttons. I was so amazed that nothing was happening. Ok, I said to myself, do not mashed the blue/green one just the grey one. I mashed the grey one and watch as nothing was happening. But in a few minutes the sign on to the TV began to come up then the TV was on. Of course it is not hooked up to anything, therefore, I received no picture but it was wanting to show me that it does work. I turned it off a few times and back on using the grey button. It was a bit slow, guess the electrons were rusty, and it kept coming on. I said a couple of 4 letter words and walked back into the living room with my head hanging down all disillusioned. If I guessed I might say the remote maybe wearing out. But regardless of my background, I want waste my time feeling positive about myself and experience until I try screwing in a light bulb. If I do try it and it works then there might be some hope for me, but if it does not work, for whatever reason, then I shall remain with my head down between my shoulders.
I no longer profess to be knowledgeable of anything technical. I still do not understand the wires that I am having problems with. That is not technical just either it works or it does not.

I wish I could describe my day today, but I can’t I think about it I end up with a headache. It has not been a bad day just a crappy day. I ran across a few words that would fit my day if I used them in conversation, so I will leave them as they are above and others may appreciate them in one way or another. Words are like birds fun but I think words can be more impacting when listen to.
Today began with bad vibrations, negative energy, and yes positivity. I of course changed my phone number last evening, today I went to the bank and took care of my accounts and then the bank told me to go to the police office, I did and he told me that unless I lost something or gained something then no crime was committed. He thanked me and they have had this same problem before. He said that I did right in what I did.
I see the rain is back in town. I have a new car 2017 that this morning I parked it because I heard a noise when I was coming up in speed. I am not sure what it is and I do not know if I should drive it to the dealership or not. It is a ways up there on the interstate. I will have to call them tomorrow to see what they might think it is. It is for sure under warranty.
The thunder sounds like it is in a bad mood. I wish it would wait till bedtime I could stand the racket then.
