Saturday Evening Post for October 14th, 2017: Blog Entry on the Edge of Nowhere

I'm home in my lamp lit, window air-conditioned, little efficiency apartment watching the MeTV Super Sci-Fi Saturday Night lineup -- which segues into the Sunday Sci-Fi Red Eye lineup. I just made some dinner and finished four loads of laundry.

The episode of Star Trek: The Original Series episode is my favorite one: The City on the Edge of Forever. These are the digitally reworked ("remastered") versions.


The Svengoolie-hosted movie this week was a light-hearted one: "The Ghost and Mr. Chicken" starring the late comedic actor Don Knotts of "Barney Fife" character fame. Battlestar Galactica (the 1978 series) is on next. I love the opening theme to it.

My friend Chester on the US-Canadian border in Vermont at the end of a 20-day, 300-mile hike starting from Dalton, Mass., with a final night (after reaching the border) in the nearby City of St. Albans.

Awesome achievement, Chester. You should be proud. (By contrast, I sat in an office cubicle and gone to a few bars and restaurants during that time.)

I'm totally not going out tonight. Last night was the usual disaster show, and I'm quite worn out. To be clear, I made it to the gym today, but I got there at nearly 5PM. Instead of a multi-part workout, I just did a treadmill jog followed by a swim. I managed to get up to six miles in two parts while watching on the treadmill's TV monitor two-and-a-half episode of The Golden Girls on TV Land.

This picture was taken by a person I know named Tim. He is someone with whom I was close friends -- in a manner of speaking -- about 20 years ago, but with whom I only recently (in the last three months) became reacquainted. It's all somewhat problematic.

For tomorrow, I am planning on going back to the gym to do the weightlifting. For tonight, as I said, I'm just in and doing nothing but watching TV and updating this blog. I've composed a Jukebox Saturday Night entry that I will post in a few minutes
