Title: What made your day today?/100 Happy Days
Post by: Well Behaved Lady on August 01, 2014, 05:00:17 PM
MOD NOTE: WEVE MERGED THE HAPPY DAYS/MADE MY DAY THREADS.  CONTINUE TO BE HAPPY...

100 Happy Days - A prompt I've seen pop up on my Facebook page for a while now, but as I don't use FB like others, as in to post about the everyday going ons in my life. I wondered would it work here.

The idea is you post about something that makes you happy for 100 days straight.

From the website http://100happydays.com for people who are doing the challenge with photos and through social media.

Quote
Why would I do that?

People successfully completing the challenge claimed to:

 - Start noticing what makes them happy every day;
 - Be in a better mood every day;
 - Start receiving more compliments from other people;
 - Realize how lucky they are to have the life they have;
 - Become more optimistic;
 - Fall in love during the challenge.

I'm going to give it a go, from what I can see the only thing you have to do is say what number day it is and what made you happy ~ simples ;D

Day #1 - having fun texting

I'd like to try it.   It'll force me to come in to the KB forum, and not disappearing for a week/month.    Maybe it will also help me to notice things that make me happy, and while remembering that happy feeling so that I can post it here, will keep a positive mood.   Guess when this experiment is over I can look back on it and offer more positives about it.   So...

Day#1   - Happy that I'm going to the Detroit Tiger game with my daughter tonight.   First time to a game since mid-April.

And a Woo for another great thread creation, Ms. W.

#1 - Enjoy family to the fullest.  Seeing a smile on an eleven-month old as he brings you something just melts my heart.

vinney.....that is wonderful, not the pain, but the fact that you aren't letting it hinder you.  Sounds like you could use a little motivation, how 'bout I run little ahead of you and if you catch up you can poke me with your.....crutch!  LOL

Day two: Found a new use for one of my crutches... got the bleeding insect on the ceiling first time... now I'll have to repaint the ceiling ...(some hopes)... Been out looking for my motivator, crotch in hand... so where were you TD...? couldn't even see you with my 'noculars...

Day 4....   spotted a Monarch butterfly today.    Normally I would not have noticed, but I saw on the news a couple of weeks ago that they are very scarce in Michigan because of the late spring.   So, I was happy for the little guy for making it this far North.

Day #5
Though, it happened in day 4, it carried over to this morning - and every other day going forward.   
Michelle had a favorite pair of earrings.   Last fall, she lost one and had no idea where.   Going through an Arby's drive-thru last night, I accidentally dropped my credit card between my passenger seat and the console.   When I got home, I moved the seat all the way forward and found, not only my credit card, but also the lost earring.   
Lin suggested that I hang it from my rear view mirror.   What a great idea it was.   
It was a very nice thing to come out to this morning when leaving for work.

Post by: joe_and_michelle on August 07, 2014, 01:59:30 PM
Day 6, yesterday 8/6 -    This was a tough one.   Pretty uneventful day at work.    But then I arrived home and discovered someone had mowed my lawn.   It was a very nice surprise.   I've been putting it off and was going to do it this weekend, but it was getting kind of gnarly.   Was unable to discover which of my neighbors cut it, so I still owe a thank you to someone.

Day 8... visited my physiotherapist who is pleased with my progress... Am still on crutches but soon will reduce to just one... but given go-ahead to use my exercise bike - lowest setting and for one and a half minutes only... well that's a start anyway...

Feel really good and very positive after a period of serious depression due to pain and immobility...  ;D Getting happier now and looking like we'll manage to get away on holiday soon - not like the first one which we had to cancel...

Good to hear Vinney.    Continual improvement is great news.

Day 8 - I haven't really given a shit about food lately.   Frozen dinners, fast food or homemade sandwiches is what I've brought to work for my lunches these past couple of months.
Well today, a co-worker wanted to try a new rib joint.   Holy bejeezus was it ever good.   I haven't had ribs in about a year.

Day #8 - Surprise visit by daughter and baby. No matter how terrible my body feels, when he comes up to me and puts out his hands and smiles to be picked up, all the pain is forgotten.  Until they leave, then the pain returns.

Day 10 - A scratch.  Nothing good.

Day 11 - An employee and his wife had twins over the weekend.    After he gave me a cigar, I congratulated him and then asked him what the F he was doing at work and told him to get his ass home.   Very happy for them both.

Day 11. Not sure if I've said but I'm down to a single crutch now. Managed to walk a little further today and have a spell on the exercise bike (within the minimal constraints of my physiotherapist). Heard from a friend who had apparently gone missing but found out he hadn't - but his Internet had!

Weather much improved and am generally feeling a whole lot more positive today and looking forward to a further improvement tomorrow...

Day 14 - Finished a book at lunch today and began the final book in the series. 
I've always felt a sense of accomplishment whenever I finish a book.   I had difficulty reading/comprehending all through college.  So much difficulty that, out of frustration, I wouldn't read any books.  I started reading again in my early 30's.

The second store is on three levels... The items we wanted were on the top floor... was fine going up on the elevators... but no elevators down - the lift was out of order and three flights of steps...damned difficult and painful with the crutch...

Gave up and went home after that...

Day 16...invited to a party at The Dream Cruise (a classis car event in a nearby city)   Was a real fun day with some old friends.  Lin and I were able to take a friends 67 Vette for a spin out on Woodward.  She was acting like she was in a parade and was waving like the princess she thinks she is.  Crowds were huge.

Day 17...Lin was surprised by her aunt earlier today.  She took her to her first concert this evening.   New Direction.  Lin was so happy she never stopped smiling when she found out.  Gotta love to see your child that happy.

I managed a short walk outside without using crutches

Day 18... 2 things...
(1) Last week Becca mentioned PB&Jelly sandwiches in the Smooth or Crunchy thread.   Made me think I haven't had that in forever and planned on it over the weekend.   I didn't have an opportunity to have it this past weekend, but made two for lunch today.  Just half an hour ago, I had PB and bread stuck to the roof of my mouth.   Once I got it off the roof of my mouth I was happy.
(2) My Monday morning virtual cup of coffee with a friend.

Day 19...   I have not had a carbonated soda in 3 months, other than some ginger ale in my Cap'n Morgan.    Well today at lunch I had an ice cold Diet Coke.   Oh G'damn, was it good.   The only reason I even bought it was because I went to the gas station to fill up.   When I went in to pay, there was a bottle with "Share a Diet Coke with Karen" on it.   Of course, I had to buy it.

^ Sorry, couldn't resist.  My apologies if it offends.    I'm in a weird mood today due to a lack of sleep.

Day 21...A few... (1)Some special coffee drink from my secretary.   Very good.   (2) A song I heard.   (3) The 1 hour nap I'm about to take for lunch.

Day 23 & 24    Weather was way too hot in Ohio.  But a fun time.
Day 25    New printer arrived from Amazon.   Fast and trouble free.   No paper jams anymore.
Day 26    Back in March, bought some Tiger tickets for all the Yankees games.   A friend told me they were selling for 4 times the value because of Jeters farewell tour.   Sold all 3 games for $750.    Original purchase prices was $210.   Helped to pay for this past weekend.

Day 28...   High School Football game last night.   A Friday night activity we've done since we met (when the team plays at home).    We've never been college or Pro football fans.   Just something about the HS game and getting crammed in the bleachers with your friends & neighbors.  The  HS is just 1/2 mile walk from our house.  
It was great game where the lead changed hands 4 times in the 4th quarter.   Fun night, except when Lin spilled the hot chocolate on me.  Wasn't that hot, but it didn't look that great on my khaki colored shorts.

Day 30-33... Nothing good to report.

Day 34 - rec'd a thank you letter from Michelle's favorite charity that we had asked friends and family to donate to in her memory - and in lieu of flowers for the memorial service.  The letter mentioned that over $7500 was donated in her memory.   Was truly blown away by this.  Michelle would have been extremely touched by this, as I am. 
I know the bulk of it had to have been her parents very well off friends, 'cause I know it wasn't my cheap ass friends.   :D

Day 35... Cop pulled me over after I picked up Lin from my sis-in-laws.  65 in a 45.   Happens to be an Asian cop that comes to my window and asks for my license and registration.   He sees Lin in the back seat and says "Hello" to her in a kind voice.  She says, "Hi.  You look just like a man I know in China."  He asks how she would know someone in China.   I explain that M and I adopted her 18 months ago.   He asked a few other questions about the adoption and explained that his mother still lives in China.  He patted me on the shoulder and said, "Slow it down, dad."  Then said goodbye to Lin and went back to his vehicle.   No ticket!!!   Very happy!   My neighbor said a 20 over would have been about $200.

Happy days, you should put that $200 in a savings account for Lin, as when she is old enough she may come to you and say Dad remember that time I saved you from a ticket, well I got one  ;D

20 over the limit (along with over 80 anywhere) is Reckless Driving in Virginia... about $350 for a lawyer who practices in the same town as the judge, plus another $200 to $300 for a "faulty equipment" or some other substitute charge and fine.

No Points, if you work it right, which is why you need the lawyer who knows the local courts. Better, you have Lin... great story, Joe.

Day 50...   A fun time with my best friend at the Lions game.   As fans in the seats, we didn't realize how Stephen Tulloch had hurt himself.   I just read about it and fig'd I'd share with this group, who all appreciate a good hip thrust...

62... (yesterday)   Went for a walk with Lin after dinner.   We could hear the ice cream truck going through our subdivision.   The anticipation of ice cream and the sound of that ice cream truck music had her in a delirious tizzy.    It was fun to watch.   It was about 5 minutes before the truck made it to the street we were on.   Could she wait for it to traverse the length of the street to us???   No.  We had to run to it, with her pulling my hand and yelling to run faster, even though the truck had no where to go except down the street to us.    She had an Orange Push-up.   I had a Strawberry Crunch.   
When did ice cream truck drivers start looking so scary?

Relaxing at home in my chair, feet up, watching the Tigers.   Lin was excited by the game also  and is wearing Michelles Tiger hat and for some reason a grass skirt? ? ? She explained it's her Tiger cheerleading outfit.  She's not doing too much cheering....she's bored already and is coloring.

72... Saturday...An old friend stopped by for a visit.  Drinks and catching up.

73... Sunday...Family dinner at my house.  My sis-in-law is Canadian, so we celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving with Turkey and all the fixings.   Went out and cut the grass and came back in to "that smell".  Mmmm-mmm.

Life has been real good up north.  Weather staying mild, so good times outdoors with the cats and dogs.  Saturday we drove down the river roads along the Mississippi.  The bluffs were in full color.  Stopped at a state park and walked along a mile long trail high above the river.  It was fantastic.  Then we had a mile walk back to the car.  Felt our age Sunday and still some aches today.  If only I could convince my mind that there are now limits. ;D

89 ... Tuesday  ...   Fell down the stairs head first, bounced once, flipped over and landed at the bottom of the steps.   Luckily my phone was in my back pocket so that I could dial sister-in-law and 911.   Was in the hospital for 4 hours getting catscanned.   Left lung is bruised in two spots (from my ribs banging into them), but it only hurts when I breath. Luckily, I haven't had to cough or sneeze yet.   Doc warned me it'll feel worse than the fall.  Yeah, looking forward to that.  5 bruised ribs.   Bruised spleen.  Bad sprain of my left wrist.   Badly sprained left ankle.  Wearing a boot until the swelling goes down, it's a little smaller than the size of a volleyball.   Vinney gets rid of crutches, Joe's gonna borrow them for a couple of weeks.  Other than that, not a scratch on me.    ;D
On the plus side, it's not my driving foot.   And I'm right handed, not left.

Ya know that feeling when the wind gets knocked out of you and you can't catch your breath?  Yeah, it was like a minute of that.   As I'm laying there I was thinking, "Well you really f'd up this time."   I truly thought I was a goner.  Thought I broke my back, but all is good there. 
Bitch of it is, I have to go to work tomorrow.  There's no getting out of it.   Too much going on.

M'F'er, what a day!  But not nearly as bad as yours, Vinney.  Sorry to hear of your friends son.

97...Wednesday
Happy for Daylights Savings time and turning the clock back on Sat night/Sun morning.    It seems to have "reset" my sleep pattern.   I'm waking up feeling better that I have in recent months.   I'm getting a good 6-7 hours sleep every night.

Day 98...   1000 Days at KB.

February 10th, 2012 (the day I joined KB) + 1000 Days = November 6th, 2014

I'm HAPPY that I was able to survive 1000 days with you all.   And I barely pissed anyone off.   And don't think I pissed anyone off to earn that  one boo (http://www.kristensboard.com/forums/index.php?topic=16479.msg208067#msg208070) I got, that was special.

I am not a fan of turning the clock back because it gets dark too early and mostly because it seems the cats never ever get adjusted and get me up an hour earlier.  They are so fuckin' lucky that I'm their human.   :D

Today is the first day my cat understood her dinner time is now an hour later. It has been a wonderful, yowling-free evening!

Day 99 (Friday) ... Marathon Disney Fest with Lin on the couch.

Day 100 (Saturday) ... Painted Lin's room, which made her very happy.  Also finished my 100 Happy Days project.  :)

100 Happy Days - 2015

Ok so the end of last year sucked bigtime for me and although I'm not fully or likely to be back to myself for sometime I thought I'd give this a go again. so while I might not be happy in the jumping about ecstatic overwhelming giddy happiness sense, I will attempt to post things that have made me smile or feel good.

I hope the few members who also joined in the last time will have a go again along with others.

Day 1 - Speaking with my best friend


Title: Re: 100 Happy Days

I like the idea of this thread, we all need some positivity and I am no exception. I cannot promise to make consecutive days but I shall try and do catch up (it may actually turn into 52 Happy Weeks knowing me!).

Day 1 (Week 1)
- spending the new year and a few days (after a difficult Christmas) with the best of friends
- spending unexpected and impromptu time with a loved one
- taking the first positive steps to a life change

The Fire Place is going, nice and cozy in the living room. It's snowing outside and there's no place to go. All I'm doing is watching the horses play in the snow and race around. Today is a Currier and Ives kind of day. Love it, so peaceful.

Fresh, home-made lemon curd.  :emot_kiss:

This sort of freaked me out for a moment.   One of those heart dropping in the stomach moments.
Went to my mother-in-laws last night and what had she made??   Homemade Lemon Curd.
Seriously, my mind was going a mile a minute.   Truly, scared the shit out of me thinking that my mother-in-law might be running the sex forum I frequent.    It would be SOOOOOOO out of character, but, you never know.   
Forgive me if I call you "mom" at times, Lois.  ;)

Just because is all......do you have to really have a reason?  Don't get me wrong, I like seeing what brings a smile to y'all's face, makes you more human and not just some unknown presence or whatever.  *chuckle*
I'm just happy today....it is what it is!

My sister-in-law, in kahoots with my secretary, called some of my vendors asking for pledges if I participate in a polar plunge.  This "surprise" was just brought to my attention an hour ago.   They've raised $950 (so far) for the Michigan Special Olympics, IF I jump into the Detroit River tomorrow.   WTF?  How can I say no to jumping into a river when it's single digit temperatures with a wind chill in the minus.
So, my "happy" today is that I'm nice and dry and warm today...very unlike how I will be at 11am tomorrow.

A Detroit Tiger baseball game with Lin, Katherine and my sis-in-law Sunday.    Monday, we're going to pick up my dad and take him to a memorial service in his town that he attends every year, and then to the burial spot of his childhood and best friend he served with and lost in Vietnam.

We come, not to mourn our dead soldiers, but to praise them. -Francis A. Walker

Note from the teacher:

Good Afternoon,
 
As the year comes to a close, I just wanted to let you know how honored and privileged I have felt to teach Johnny this year.   As you know, he is a one of a kind kiddo with whom I have great respect.
 
I enjoyed watching his presentation today and I know that he will be an incredible contribution to society one day.  I told him to let me know if he does in fact pursue law.
 
You have raised a kind, caring, courteous and HELPFUL young gentleman.  Johnny is truly selfless.
 
I will miss having him in my class as he has really become my assistant this year!   Good luck isn’t really a great way to talk about Johnny’s future---as I know it won’t be luck! The path he has already begun to pave (with your help) will guarantee his future success.
 
Congrats to you for raising such an inspirational son!
 
I thought you would enjoy this picture. Johnny was shaking hands with a fellow “classy”mate.  Johnny became a lawyer for his presentation and the other student was a judge. WATCH OUT WORLD!
 
With sincerity,
Johnny's Teacher

About 10 years ago, I volunteered to become the JV basketball coach for our local high school.   Being part of the program, I was required to attend a mini-conference to hear a motivational speaker.    This guy was a coach for many years.   He didn't measure his success by his win-loss records at the end of each season.   He measured his success by what he called "paychecks".   The paycheck had no monetary value.   The paycheck was many things much more important, such as an email of thanks from a player, a thank you letter from a parent for helping to guide their child, a graduation party invite, a birth announcement from a former player, an award from the league, former players coming by for years to follow even though they were no longer in the same school district, etc.

Toe, what you received was what I now refer to as a parental paycheck.  You put for the effort and now you're getting your reward.   A letter I hope you pull out and read many times.  You deserve it.   From the sounds of it, you will be getting many more paychecks for the fine job you did raising a great kid.
Congrats, brother.

Left a gorgeous NC and arrived in rainy Detroit.  We were joined by Michelle's mom/dad and a few other close friends.  Spent most of this rainy day looking through albums and watching some videos, including some awesome dance performances of Michelle when she was a 7 year old.  A few tears, but many more laughs.  1 year already.   Seems like it was only yesterday.

Meeting family I haven't seen in many many years, knowing they still hold me in high regard despite circumstances.

A tiredness that resonates from within.

Perfection abound.

The above will only make sense to me but suffice to say I'm very very happy.

Picking up the little one, and 4 of her (very loud) friends.   My sis-in-law and I are taking them to one of the major fireworks shows in our area tonight.   
Eating shitty tonight...  Basically Carnival food.... Walking tacos, elephant ears, popcorn, hot roasted almonds and an ice cream (or two).
Start of fireworks season, my neighborhood will sound like a war zone for the next 3 weeks.  It already started last weekend.

Daughter has been begging to go to the zoo.   Today's the day.   It was Michelle's favorite place.   I've mentioned before she was a docent there when we lived in Royal Oak, the city in which the Detroit Zoo resides. 
It is fast becoming our daughters favorite place, too.    She's excited to see how big the baby giraffe has grown.

Cotton Candy.  Love that stuff.   7-11 sells it in little bags, like chip bags.  I think it's called Fluffy Stuff.   Daughter gets some every time we go there.    Which, by the way, we stopped at 7-11 on the way to the zoo.   Free small slurpees today.   Well, that's what my daughter got (small), I got a large.   Rock N'Rye flavored.   Do they have that outside of Michigan?  It's a Faygo flavor.

Starting a new job today.  It's been six months since I lost the last one.  I've had to put on a stiff upper lip (and show no fear) around the kids, but every dollar we've spent recently on snacks, Scouting, field trips, clothing store, etc. has been a little nightmare for me.  Let's hope this one works out.  Now, if I can just remember how to shave and put on a suit.  LOL.

Going Naked is NOT an option....!!!!
Good Luck, Hope everything works out.

A little back story...
My sis-in-law took my soon to be 6 year old daughter to get some clothes at a store for back to school.   They were out of those clothes and some similar ones.   The sales associate said, "All the stores are going through them like Hot Cakes"
After leaving the store, Lin asked Debbie what that term meant.   She explained.  So to her now, everything is 'going through them like hotcakes.'  Sometimes the term fits, most times it makes absolutely no sense what so ever.

So, this morning....   
I was meeting my friend for breakfast.    Sis-in-law Debbie had originally planned on watching Lin but got called into the office.   So, I took Lin with me.   It was to be the first time her and Abbie met.   I gave Abbie the heads-up and asked if she was cool with it.   She said no problem.    When we arrived, Abbie was already sitting at a table.   We walk up and I introduced Lin to her.
"Lin, this is my friend Abbie."
Abbie holds out her hand and says, "I'm so happy to meet you, Lin.  I've heard so much about you."   
Lin shakes her hand and replies, "Nice to meet you.   So are you daddy's newest girlfriend?"
First, I'm ready to laugh at the term 'newest girlfriend'.   
Abbie sort of looks at me and gets a laughing smile going.   We really haven't discussed exactly where we stand, but I give her a little nod.  She turns to Lin, smiles and says, "Yes, I think you could say I'm his girlfriend."
Lin looks at me and says, "Boy daddy, you're going through girlfriends like hotcakes."
There was a couple sitting across the aisle from us.   The woman started laughing so hard I thought she was going to pee her pants.

So, my happiness today and everyday is my darling daughter for making me laugh so often.

My daughter is at her grandparents cottage for the week.
Abbie, my new friend, has the rest of the week off work.
Spur of the moment on the phone a few minutes ago, Abbie and I came up with a plan to blow town.    Heading to the airport for an 8pm flight.   Heading to Vegas for some fun.   
I'll try to avoid those 24 hour chapels on the strip.   Though, that's what happened the last time I went to Vegas.
See you all next Wed.

Well, made it to Vegas.
We had been there for 24 hours when Abbie got a call from her mom that an Uncle had passed away in Boston.   It was Abbie's mom's brother in law.   She said she was feeling guilty she wouldn't be able to go, so I said, "WTF, I got my ass kicked at the craps table, let's get out of here and go to Boston."    With a little maneuvering from the fine people at Southwest Airlines, we were able to be in Boston by early Saturday.   Luckily, I did make back about half of what I lost my first time at the tables before we flew out.
Met a bunch of Boston speaking family members of Abbie's.   I was taught by her brother that the easiest way to talk like a Bostonian, was to leave the R sound out of every word.   It seemed to work pretty good.   Bah, Cah, Fah.
Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard.  Whale watching.   Visited the sight of the Boston Massacre.   Learned all sorts of things that I was taught incorrectly in elementary school. 

So, I'm happy I got out of Vegas without getting hitched.
and, I'm happy to be back in Michigan.    Had a great time in Boston and Vegas.
Just trying to catch up at work.

GF took me to Kid Rock show at Pine Knob last night with her brother and sister-in-law.   I met them both for the first time.   
15th row.   Show was awesome.   Was hoping for a Ted Nugent or Bob Seger appearance, but unfortunately not.  Nugent did show up over the weekend though.   10 straight sold out shows.

An email this morning from a friend filling me in on some wonderful news.   It brightened my day on a day that I was in a yucky mood because I had to get out of bed to come in to work, when it seems the entire state of Michigan has the day off.

Happy Good Friday,
Jules

Chirpingirl, a favorite of mine with my niece.  :)
Idleboast, GREAT news!
Mr. Vinnie, a hug for you. >:)<

After the morning tasks were done, my wife and I got a little playful and she ended up on top of me on our bed. The ceiling light was right above her and it made her glow. She was smiling and I swear she looked like an angel. She is so incredibly beautiful. I told her she looks like a beautiful Japanese angel. She leaned down, kissed me, and said something in Japanese. I hate when she does that!

I really need to learn that damn language :roll:

I remember when we used to cook with lard. None of the modern substitutes can approach it for flavor. It disappeared from the stores here for many years. All the donut shops, all the fish & chips places, all the bakeries moved away from it and substituted the phony vegetable oils and the flours that taste like cardboard. But just the other day, for the first time in many years, I noticed one of the local supermarkets stocking Crisco. I'm not sure it's the original lard, but next time I see it I'm going to grab a package, bring it home and try it out.

My friend who works at Kroger gave me two whole boxes full of stuff they were about to toss in a dumpster. Cereal, candy, snacks. She said employees take tons of stuff that's ordered to just be dumped.

How do they get away with just dumping perfectly good stuff? Donate it for fucks sake, not just the stale bread you can't sell!

Lard (the generic term) and Crisco (the commercial brand) have the reputation of taking your cholesterol sky-high and clogging your coronary blood vessels. I don't know what the science of all that is, but I can tell you this:

In my high school days I worked part-time during the school year and full time in the summer at a popular seafood restaurant. Half or more of what we sold into the dining room and over the take-out counter was fried in lard. We had four frialators going all the time.

We coated our seafood in a tray of loose flour, shook off the excess, dipped the fish in a milk/egg bath, then fluffed it in corn flour and then into the frialator. In a busy streak my hands would be coated with this stuff to the extent that it had to be peeled off as a gummy glob. I would often mold the glob into a cruller shape and pop that into the frialator. After a few minutes I had a delicious cruller to nibble on. We had the best fried seafood and french fries for many miles around, and that culinary excellence depended hugely on the purity and cleanliness of our lard.

I would not call myself a lard pig, but I always appreciated the special flavor, and when lard usage started disappearing around here I would drive a half hour or an hour to where I knew I could get lard fried donuts, and I heavily patronized the lunch place in town that still used lard for the fries that came with your sandwich.

I am diabetic, and get my blood tested at least three or four times a year. My cholesterol numbers are almost those of a high school athlete. When I had a prosthetic heart valve replacement at the age of sixty-something the hospital cathetered all my coronary arteries to see what else they might clean up while they had my chest open. What they found was clean pipes everywhere they looked.

If there is a cardiologist here on KB, I would welcome any explanation of this mystery.

But the thing that made my day was hearing from a woman who I last spoke to in 1954. How's that for ancient? She was practice-teaching speech and drama at my high school. I played the stage manager part in our senior class production of Our Town, the Thornton Wilder play that was a big hit on Broadway, later done at least twice in movie versions. She called to invite me to my sixty-somethingth high school class reunion. I have not attended any of my reunions, because to do so would violate my hermit principles, but I thanked her for bringing me up to date on a number of my old classmates. Not only that, but she inquired after my sister, who was two years behind me in high school, so I was able to call my sister and tell her she was remembered from all those years as well.

This was another impressive example of the tracks we leave behind in our lives. You go on doing whatever you do, every day, trying to mind your business and make things come out right at the end of the day, and you almost never ask yourself 'Is anyone watching what I do? Does anyone care what I do?' Well the answer is yes, they do watch, yes, they do care, no, you don't live in isolation. What you do when you think nobody is watching, you are setting an example to humanity, so goddammit set a good example. If it is your lot in life to suffer, please for chrissake have the decency to suffer nobly; or if it is to prosper instead, prosper nobly, be thankful and gracious to those who tolerate you from above, and be generous and gracious to those who study you from below.

Knowing this might have made a big difference in the life of Richard Cory:


Richard Cory, By Edwin Arlington Robinson

Whenever Richard Cory went down town,
We people on the pavement looked at him:
He was a gentleman from sole to crown,
Clean favored, and imperially slim.

And he was always quietly arrayed,
And he was always human when he talked;
But still he fluttered pulses when he said,
"Good-morning," and he glittered when he walked.

And he was rich—yes, richer than a king—
And admirably schooled in every grace:
In fine, we thought that he was everything
To make us wish that we were in his place.

So on we worked, and waited for the light,
And went without the meat, and cursed the bread;
And Richard Cory, one calm summer night,
Went home and put a bullet through his head.


Selah.

It seems that social media has brought a large number of "ghosts from the past" back into my orbit.  Some I am genuinely glad to reacquaint myself with.  Others, I spent 35 years forgetting their awfulness, only to be reminded of it here again in my 50's.  LOL.

When I was six years old a 12 oz bottle of Hires root beer was a ten minute ticket to heaven, only cost a nickel back then. We would put a thumb over the bottle, shake it, slurp the foam, then drink off the contents.

But I'm still proud of myself when I can three-point an empty beer can into the trash container.

We should all be like Morgaine La Faie and only drink water from the sacred well, but there are no sacred wells left these days.

Enjoying a private celebration of getting my taxes filed, treating myself to a bottle of Asti  Spumante and stuffed mushrooms instead of a nutritious evening meal. Filing one's taxes is the most common of nuisances, but every year as I grow older in retirement, enjoying more and more the release from the burdens of having to be anywhere or do anything other than enjoy my second childhood, I resent the intrusions of compulsory anything, especially those backed by the imperial powers of the state. This year it took me six days of sweating the details to get the job done, and I don't like sweating. When I was young and strong, working up a sweat meant having fun. Now my best fun is dozing off for an afternoon nap.

Haven't had lobster in about 9 months.   One of my favorite things to eat.
Was in Boston last summer and had some delicious lobster rolls.    OMG, couldn't stop eating them.   Went down to Hyannis where a college gfs parents lived.   Her cousin is a lobster trapper.   The dinner I had that night, the lobster were 2 hours out of the ocean.   Yum.

Was in Boston last summer and had some delicious lobster rolls.    OMG, couldn't stop eating them.   Went down to Hyannis where a college gfs parents lived.   Her cousin is a lobster trapper.   The dinner I had that night, the lobster were 2 hours out of the ocean.   Yum.   

Go to Mystic Conn. and look for a place call "Abbott's Lobster In The Rough".
Great Seafood, Better Lobster.
Kinda Pricey, but worth it.

Love,
Liz

I loved Boston, Hyannis, MV's, Providence.   Made it as far west as New London.   Want to go back soon.  Need to head up to Acadia Natl Park.    Last year I was mainly south of Boston.    So beautiful.   We'd just get off 95 and discover the houses along the water.   Get back on, go a few more exits and then get off again and make our way to the seaside towns.    Mystic was a wonderful town.    My friend wants to go, maybe this summer again.   Will def visit Abbot's.   Thank you, Liz

Two already today.   
One was my 5 mile run in wonderful weather.   
The second was running by El Charro, a Mexican restaurant, and seeing their sign out front read "Home of the Puffy Taco."    I laughed and couldn't help but think of this board.   Normally it wouldn't have fazed me.  But hanging around here, my mind is in the gutter all the time it seems.

Huge party for my baby. Lots of presents, and my wife made a home made from scratch huge birthday cake that's completely gone, literally not even a crumb left. Spent a fortune on pizza, which is also almost completely gone. No ice cream left. My living room looks like a nuke went off and the kids are in sugar and pizza comas. I can't even get them to take their baths.

I'm happy everyone had a great time, but my heart is crushed another of my babies is a year older  :'(

What has made my day? Nothing so far today but a week or so ago a very attractive young lady told me that seeing me in the morning made her day. The big smile I get from her everyday when she walks in the door makes every day at work a good one.

Now, if I wasn't 20 years older than her and married ...

I have a bad habit of falling into my deepest sleep, right around the time I must get up and start preparing for work.  So this morning, I'm in a very deep sleep, and I dream I am skinny dipping at Barton Springs in Austin with my lady love, my ex, my girlfriend from law school, and my girlfriend from college.  They are all *extremely* demonstrative and physical.... and just then my alarm goes off.  Damn.  I had to quickly rub one out.  Great way to start a Monday.

 :emot_laughing:

I'm the same way.   When I have dreams, it's usually about work, or my sister, or ordinary things, but after I hit the snooze the first time, I have some very erotic dreams.  Stuff I would never do in real life.
Glad to hear your Monday started off great, Mr. Toe.

I found a literal ton of stuff from my mom's life all packed away today. In fact, I barely scratched the surface of the relics. Among them were old video tapes. My mom was horribly embarrassed when I found one tape she hoped was lost forever. It was from a birthday party, and in it she and her friends were dancing to:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cAQSZhazYk8

 :emot_laughing:

I've seen pictures of my mom in the 80's, but this was absolutely the most amazing thing I have ever seen. And here I thought my mom, a gorgeous, elegant and glamorous ageless woman was nothing like me, or as she puts it "I'm fine dining, you're McDonald's drive through" was exactly like me when she was a kid. She always wondered why I was so precocious, carefree, and a big pain in the ass as a kid, but now I know it was all in the DNA.

I can't wait to see what other treasures there are :D

Played hooky and went to the zoo.  Been here 8 yrs and hadn't hit it yet, so it was time.  The temps only hit 80 today down there.

Though respectfully I like the one where I came from better: it's 40% bigger and has nearly half the number of species, so they all have much bigger enclosures.  That's important to keep the neurotic behavior down.

A skit on Saturday Night Live.    Peter Dinklage is the guest.   They had a skit where he and his wife took another couple to the new hottest restaraunt in town.   They served food through a gloryhole.    First some French bread in the form of a baguette.   Then a pumpernickle in a longer loaf.   Then a corndog for the entree.   
Was laughing so hard.

Maybe you don't appreciate your own work as much as your fans do! I think your stories could be adapted very successfully to television. The plots would need a lot of fleshing out with actors and sets and all that, but the hooks would come from your own imagination.

I hope we'll be seeing this story here on KB? I've missed seeing a new story from you over the last month or so.

Knowing I'm getting out of work 1/2 hour early to go watch the kids run
For Track and Field.   I loved doing that.    But I was kind of injury prone.  Got hurt in every event I tried.  :'(
High Jump.  landed on the pole.  Right across the back.
Hurdles.   hit my trailing knee on the top of hurdle and it blew up the size of a softball
800 m relay.    Hand off of the baton, a girl in the lane next to us stumbled and fell as I was in full sprint.     My legs got tangled in hers and I went down on my hands, chin and chest.  It wasn't pretty.
Long Jump Didn't get hurt, but I stumbled at the jump line and face planted into the dirt.  Had dirt it in my nose, mouth, ears, hair, down my shirt and shorts.   More embarrassing that anything.


What made my day today........   CINCO DE MAYO.    Mexican for lunch.   Been a while since I've had my favorite at Xochimilco.   Eric?  Favorite Mexican joint in Mexan town?

I appreciate it, Herschel.

My latest story was written as an entry in an informal contest on another website which required a sci-fi theme in honor of "Star Wars Day".  I honestly didn't think it would appeal here. It's not really in the wheelhouse of KB readers.

Since you asked, though, I will post it here tonight.

Although I have not been posting on KB lately, I still come here every day to read the day's posts.  I generally don't log in, I just come and read.

My son was named outstanding student for his entire junior high last night at an awards ceremony.  It was the last award of the night, with all the drama of the Oscars (for this dad anyway).  Much cheering and screaming.  Dinner at a five star restaurant afterwards, to celebrate.  I'm still walking six inches off the ground.

Wow, congratulations Father Toe.   That is so cool.    What a great award.


What made my day.....  a vendor brought in two dozen Krispy Kreme donuts and I had the will power to refuse taking one.   Yay me.

Aren't they always adding a lane a year onto I-10?  But I have to admit, some nice highways around New Orleans and Baton Rouge.

When the state instituted the Lottery in Illinois, their main selling point was that the money would go for public education.  Once the politicians and other invested interests got their hands on that money, poof, disappeared or the allocation criteria changed.

But back on the subject - seeing all the flowers and trees in full bloom, knowing dreaded winter is gone for a while.  8)

We went to my mom's house.

My niece came walking out with a gift for me.   It was a Mother's Day card she made at school and a gift, a windchime that they made at school also.

She gave me a big hug and said that that I'm like her mommy now.    I started crying.   I'm crying now as I type this.   She's such a sweetheart.

Taking my 4 year old baby and my new baby to the park, then to lunch at McDonald's! My wife would kill me but my 4 year old and I were craving junk food on a gorgeous day.

The baby has never seen a park before. Never seen the green. Never seen the animals. Never seen the flowers. You should have seen her little eyes light up when she saw it all. All she ever knew was four walls and a ceiling and strangers  :'(

OMG, freaky.

Overhead Crane Operator for 2 months.  Moving material at a small metal shop.   No benefits, got out first chance I got.   Loved running the crane though.

Mainly boat fishing.   Lake St. Clair, Detroit River, and Lake Erie.   Joe's friend had a boat and we dated for a bit.   He always knew where to find a fishing partner.     I've had a little luck casting from shore in the early spring during Walleye spawning, but haven't done that it a while.  Was supposed to go yesterday but too cold and the water is too stirred up.

"casting from shore in the early spring during Walleye spawning,"

Walleye is the best goddam fish on a dinner plate from freshwater. Not a lot of it to be found in NH, but walleye galore in northern Quebec. We used to get a party together and go up to Mistassini every June. Every guy in the boat caught his limit every day. Fabulous fishing!

Walleye are wonderful to eat.  I love it.   The fight when on the hook is nothing special.     The Large Mouth Bass, good fight.
We've gone to the shipping channels for perch, filled up two 5 gallon buckets.   Sometimes 2 on at a time.   I love perch also.     

Gawd I want to go out.

Finding out my neighbor was being abused(NOT THIS PART THIS PARTS BAD). Apparently he hit her 1 time and she warned him. At this point I would have gladly thrown him the ass kicking of the millennium but she has I don't know patience I guess. Anyway it happened again this morning. So she shot him in the knee cap and left the apartment taking his and her phone so he could call for help. She dropped his phone at the landlord's office, then came to our door to apologized for the loud noise, and asked if my partner and I had breakfast plans?  :emot_laughing:

The officer at the front desk of the police station we took her to (after IHOP) laughed at her shooting him and said in that situation she would have gladly done the same. Before even making a computer entry.

That's what made my day. ;D

A 3 mile run slow jog on a beautiful Sunday morning.   I saw a couple of deer.
A hot cup of coffee.
Going to a matinee performance of The Sound Of Music at the Fisher Theatre in Detroit with Joe, my niece and my friend.   So excited.

One of my favorite songs is The Lonely Goatherd.   Always brings a smile to my face.  I hope they sing it.
Time for a little nap right now though.   Only 5 hours sleep.

Okay, so not such a great thing (depending on what kind of a pervert you are).
Spent the afternoon washing horses (no big deal), "however" I had to wash and clean several number of Penises also (those being of the horse variety).

Sitting on my deck at daybreak.....listening to the woods come alive, I know it sounds cheesy...but is like nature's symphony, can hear each sound the different birds make and they all just blend together.  Can smell how the pine trees scent the air, subtle odor of gardenias......yep, glad to be alive in my little corner of the universe.  Oh, and knowing I can come here and ramble......love y'all!

Love this.  Brings back memories.   We used to camp.  I loved it in the middle of nature.   Even at a very early age I would get up early and enjoy going and sitting outside watching the world come alive.    Was so peaceful.  Not the same as the city where I've lived 99% of my life.

The smell of Fresh Cut Hay.
The first cut is down and the air smells great.
The guys are working my parents hay fields and the wind is gently blowing the smell toward my barn, and it smells great.!!!

My friend who was supposed to be off for 3 straight days at her evening job, got called in last night. :(   Then the called her in tonight again.  :(    So she gave her two weeks notice. :)  Her quitting will leave a lot more time for us. :) 
She has a really good day job, so it's not like she needs it, it was just for some extra money.

My eldest got his first job today, at a pizza place not too far from our house.  He's been very slow in his emotional development and maturity.  I hope a summer of honest labor will give him a new perspective on life.

I dated a guy that was manager of a pizza place.   My daddy liked him a lot.   Free pizza.   He was actually mad at me when we broke up with the guy.   Good for your son, Toe.


What made my weekend....    Friends, Family getting together to remember my sister who passed away two years ago yesterday.   Home movies, photo albums and stories.   Plenty of tears.   Many more laughs.   
A couple of surprise visits from friends I haven't seen in a couple of years.

At best I can hope for a day that might contain a few laughs, maybe a moment or two of unrewarded success, possibly even a dining experience where I didn't feel like I was taking up a table that the waitress could have made more money on had there been more than one sitting at it.l

The there at the other days. Best I can do for this topic is not talk about them.

I'm scaling back my current job that I took to help get things back on track at the company.  Mission (pretty much) accomplished.    So now I'll only be coming in once a week.     I will be focusing more time on my previous job, which I put on the back burner for the last 4 months.

In addition, my friend quit her evening job.   So we'll have much more time to spend together.

On a sadder note (for me) the above two instances will have a severe impact on how much I will be visiting KB.     I'll still be stopping in, but definitely not the way I have been in recent months.    I'll still be coming by, most likely on weekday evenings.

Post by: Lois on June 18, 2016, 01:41:37 AM
I had a day that started off bad but turned out good if the entire balance of things is considered.  

I left home at 10 am this morning with Jefferson's truck.  Yesterday, he had a flat and replaced it with the spare tire.  He tasked me with taking the truck to the tire place to get a repair, and then to get an oil change.  So first I went to the tire place.  They said it might not be repairable because of the uneven wear.  If the hole happened to be near the outside where the tread was supper thin, then I'd need a new tire.  They said they could get to it in about an hour.  So to be efficient, I left the tire there and went five blocks down the road to the oil change place.  Right as I arrived at the oil change place, the spare tire flattened and died.  But I proceeded to get the oil change.

After words, I tried to drive the five blocks back to the tire place going at about 5mph.  But the truck is heavier than a car and the tire quickly shredded and balled up making it very difficult to move.  So I called for a tow.  In the process of towing the truck the back tires kept seizing up and we discovered we needed a flat bed tow truck.

So in the process of disconnecting Jefferson's truck, the tow rig came up under the radiator and punched a hole in it.  Ugh!

The poor tow truck driver had to call his boss and tell him what happened.  His boss was really mad.  They informed me that they were responsible and would pay to replace the radiator.

And of course I felt bad.  The driver would have to pay for the parts out of his paycheck.  Yeah, he did a boneheaded thing that resulted in the destruction of the radiator,  but still I felt bad because coming up short on money can be really bad for people struggling to pay rent, etc.  But he assured me it would be okay.

So we drove the four blocks to the tire store, got the tire, and as we were pulling into the parking lot where we left the truck we saw that the the flat bed tow had already arrived.  We replaced the tire and then put the truck on the flat bed.  Then off to the garage for the radiator repair.

So why am I not discouraged?  Well, I accomplished both my goals.  The oil is changed and the tire is fixed.  We did not have to spend $500 for a new pair of front tires. AND now the truck has a brand new radiator, although I feel bad that the mistake was costly for someone else.

To top it all off, the other tow trick drivers were impressed that I did not flip out and scream with anger.  My attitude is that everyone makes mistakes.  I think this attitude was appreciated and I received many smiles in return.

So on balance, it was a good day.

I have to meet with a lawyer about property I just inherited from a family member.

It's been put up for sale and I have to decide to sell or keep it. There's an interested buyer and it could be nearly 100 thousand dollars  :emot_weird:

I recently inherited other property which I've rented out, but I don't know what to do with this. Lot of money for my babies college funds.

It's the simple things in life that make my day. Yesterday and today it was not having to pick up a student dropped motorcycle. Had a good group of students for this most recent rider training course. And we got finished early due to having a small group. Course timings are built around 16 students and we only had 6 (on purpose - not due to lack of interest in the program).

My sister's girlfriend was so happy about brexit. Today, with my help, my sister pulled her love out in front of the whole family, opened a little box with two rings inside, and asked her to marry her. It took not even half a second for her to say yes.

Yes, we all had our phones recording.

Looked over the results of my accuratizing the two PU snipers I have. Just realized that not only did I do the right things to improve their performance, I'm a good enough shot at distance to make my daddy proud.

You have no idea how it made me feel when I sent the target results to him and he complemented me.

Remind me to stand 200 yards away if I ever piss Katie off.

Try an M-14 at 300 Yards....!!!
Although I have to admit that I cheat and use a scope (not iron sights).
But still, when I'm setting up, looking down range, 300 yards looks really really long.

I don't know the longest I've ever shot.    I'd go skeet shooting with daddy in a league.  Then we'd go over and shoot pistol.    He wanted to take me deer hunting so we practices rifle on the range.   I went with him and my aunt and uncle but I didn't shoot the deer.  It was too big and majestic.    My dad was mad at first, after I started crying, he understood.
But, back to the distance.  I don't think I ever shot more than 50 yards.   300 yards must seem so far.

My Dad was a Marine (He still is if you ask him).
He qualified with the M-14 at 300 Yards and then at 500 Yards when he was active.
He taught me to shoot at 300 Yards, I had to learn Marine Corps Style. Needless to say he was strict, but attentive to everything I did right and wrong and he corrected me quickly. I think some of our best time was on the range shooting. He was absolutely worried to death when I went off to college that something would happen to me.

Pet peeve of mine.   They come up that turn lane at 50 mph.    About a year ago, I was letting a car exit a strip mall to make a left hand turn.      He no sooner passed in front of me and I saw the car in my side view.    Oh my god, I've never screamed so hard.   Air bags on both vehicles went off.     The 16 year old in daddy's Porsche got the ticket.

My favourite was the cop sitting in the left turn lane at a red light watch somebody make a left turn across the front of the cop car from the straight through lane (straight through had a green light).

It is amazing how many people are too lazy (or too stupid) to figure out a plan b if they miss their desired turn. And it is amazing the dumb things they do when trying to correct their mistake.

Try watching someone in the far left lane go careening from far left all the way over to their exit (and that's across 4 lanes of traffic all moving at 70 MPH +.
They do it all the time in New Jersey on route 80 and route 78.
The State Police are amazed that there aren't more deaths, I call it selective population control. When you get behind the wheel of a car / truck / whatever....your brains should follow you, not make a right turn and go back to bed.

We went to the park today, my four year old, baby and the dog. Weather was too nice to pass up. A woman and her infant daughter were there. She couldn't get the baby to stop crying, so I offered to see if I could since babies never cry with me. She let me hold her and I guess I worked my magic and she stopped crying right away. Turns out she just wanted to be held right, not bounced around. Her mom asked me to teach her how I did that  ;D

Note:  I just remembered that I forgot my ex's birthday this week.  I think I am finally over it all, and am definately moving on in my life.  Just another thing to be grateful concerning...

Well, if Lois and Jules and Chirping Girl are all happy, then I'm happy. But the frosting on the cake for me is having stumbled onto Terence McKenna, who is maybe (probably) the craziest genius of the psychedelic scene. Love to hear him drawl away on YouTube about stuff that is beyond rational comprehension. That will keep me entertained for the next few years. That, and KB of course. He is a nice way to studiously ignore the stupidity going on in our national politics. I love crazy non-violent genius people.

Some fresh fruit I picked up an hour ago.   All washed and ready to be eaten.    The red grapes are so perfect - the last couple times they've been yucky tasting.   Happy that I'll be enjoying a nice fruit salad tomorrow around brunchtime.

Also, enjoying another hour of quiet time.   Everybody went to visit today with family today.

I decided to tell my wife about my medical issue today. We sat outside in the shade and when it was quiet I took her hand and told her that I have a potentially, at any second apparently, fatal health issue. She squeezed my hand and said "yeah, I know."  :roll:

I should have known better. Keeping a secret from her has always proven futile.

She looked at me and said "I've known you since we could barely talk, do you really think I wouldn't know something was wrong?"  :'( She informed me that we would take any steps, and do whatever we had to. She forbade me from dying for the next eighty to ninety years. "I told you a long time ago, white girl, we were going to die together holding each others hand."  :'(

The word "love" does not describe what I feel for her. I want to die holding her hand. I just hope it won't be for another ninety years.

I agree.  No matter how frustrated we become after watching our two youngest grandchildren for an entire day, when we strap them into their car seats and the oldest one looks up and says, I love you, all the earlier frustrations just melt away.  Precious moments to remember.

Isn't that the truth. My 2 grandsons are 4 hours flying time from me. I wish the resources were available to see them more often. On the bright side, they arrive here in 2 weeks to spend almost 2 weeks with us. We are taking them to the Okanagan for what should be an adventure for them. My wife and have have been there three times in the past year.

My sister was a big sewer.   She had an embroidery machine and I've been trying to figure out how to use it for a few months.     The software on an old PC writes to a card that then goes into a 15 year old embroidery machine.     Well, I was speaking with a neighbor yesterday and was telling him about it.    His mother is a big sewer and embroiderer.   She came over today and helped me.   I finally know how to use it.   Very cool.   VERY HAPPY.   Now just need some new designs.   His mom said she has a bunch to copy to the computer.  Lots of new fonts and a few cool logos (Nike & Polo).

Watched some of the Stampede events on TV yesterday. It was a mud fest. You knew who the steer wrestlers were -- they're the ones that were clean on their left side and mud caked on their right. You also knew who got bucked off without having to ask.

FWIW, I cheer for the bulls at rodeos.

Took the kids to the park for a special event. Sadly, this will be the last time for the foreseeable future. 95-108 heat for the long range forecast. Summer will not die.

I drove in circles around the Wal-mart parking lot on Saturday, while my son captured a rare one he wanted.  All his friends were jealous.  Catch 'em all...

LOL....I love you Katie........
But clothes...??
Listen girl......."Clothes For Me".
Blue jeans (most likely with knees ripped).
T-shirt in summer / Flannel shirt in winter.
Cowboy Boots (all the time, everywhere).
IH Baseball Hat (most times) (IH <---International Harvester).
Cowboy Hat about 0.002% of the time (only to impress, which is usually nobody).
Chaps, when the riding get rough.
Dress.....EWWWWWW, I think I have maybe 4 dresses that go with my boots.
Lingerie (a dresser drawer full) and yes I'll wear them.
Make-up......Forget about it, never gonna happen.
Soooo..........Can you say "Country"............

Love You,
Liz

My wife and I took the dog for a walk despite the heat. We walked by a lady throwing away an incredible stroller and tons of baby and kids toys!!!

The stroller I have, I got for my daughter and been using it ever since. This was way better. The lady was bringing everything out and I asked if she was selling or throwing away, and she said giving away. Anyone who wants can take. Her kids are all grown and they're not having anymore. So I scooped all of it up.  :D

My wife was embarrassed we were picking through trash but I didn't care, this stuff was great. I made her carry garbage bags home.  ;D

Cleaned up the stroller and stuff and it's good as new.  :D


Before you say we didn't need it, no one else was around and it was garbage day.

There is no shame in garbage picking.   You're saving something from filling the land fill.   Recycling.     I've made some fine picks in my time.

Ok, it was a pistol. Walther CCP.

I'm moving out one that I don't like so much, and this is the replacement.

Not a big thing but it still made my day. Out walking the dog this evening, I found an almost complete roll of unused (I know where this would go if I didn't specify) poop bags sitting on the side walk.

We often find empty beverage containers which we donate to charity (the is a refundable deposit on most beverage containers here).

We have also found blocks of cheese on the side walk in the past. This was near a grocery store and we figure they fell out of somebody's bag while walking home.

Free stuff is free stuff.

Coming home early, and finding my two teenagers running around the neighborhood, on a hot summer day, playing Pokemon Go.  Say what you will about the game, I'm amazed that two boys their age would be outside in 95° heat.

Same here.   My niece is just itching for me to get home to play.     It's all good, she walks at a very brisk pace.    We bumped into some of her friends (boys and girls) and the pack of them took off in search of the next stop.    The joy these kids are having and interacting with each other, a few that she was not friends with before.    Not saying she's a couch potatoes, but some of the friends mothers are happy their kids are getting out also.   I'm missing out on my runs, but that's fine, too hot to run.   I've got some early morning runs planned this weekend.

Summary: Happy to see my niece making new friends and getting some exercise.

Out to the mall to walk around while it rained.    I was ordering some coffee while my niece waited outside.   As I stepped to the side to await my drink, a guy that was also waiting for his coffee started talking to me.   As he was handed his drink and was about to leave, he asked if I'd like to have coffee with him sometime.  (Funny as we were both getting a coffee right then).    But my niece steps in and says, "She can't, she has a girlfriend already."   He first seemed shocked at the sudden presence of my niece, but then looked at me for confirmation.    I just nodded.   He wished us both a nice day.   

Cracked me up that my niece is looking out for me.   Though, he was kind of cute.

I remember the days when the extended family would get together on one of the farms they owned and the men would stay up all night roasting the pig and getting drunk and everyone else would bring a side dish. Now, it is very hard to get my family together because of everyone's hectic lifestyle and work.

Finished a major part of painting the dungeon.  It was raining so I could not work on the roof.

We have a foam roof.  Not leaking, but the elastomeric covering the foam was cracked during a hailstorm that also broke our skylight. Where the foam has eroded, I have to use the "Good Stuff" foam and then were it has puffed over the level of the roof I need to sand or cut it off.  (Fortunately there's not much erosion) Once this step is completed, I can coat the roof with silicone based roof coating.  This stuff is guaranteed for 50 years!

I am looking forward to completing many things during my week off.

I turned my phone off in court yesterday, then decided to work late.  Around 9 p.m. I checked the phone and saw my kids had called me 15 times.  They were worried.  Now they know how I feel when *they* don't answer the phone!  But it's nice to be needed, and missed.

Awww.  :)


I have a friend that complains about her kids all the time.     They jump everytime a text comes in.   They immediately look at their phone and respond to their friends.   But whenever she texts or calls, it takes 15 minutes for a response.    "Oh sorry Mom, my phone was on silent."   "Sorry, I was in the bathroom."    "Didn't hear it go off."   Now she does it to them.   15 minute response time.

I'm pretty good with constant communication.  My biggest gripe is my older son, who frequently stays out late, or sleeps over at freiends' places without telling me.  So I wake up at 2 a.m., try to locate him, and don't get a message until 8 hours later.  We've talked about this repeatedly, so he knows how I feel.  Kids.  I love mine, but think about dad every now and then.

I literally grabbed them back and told her I've had enough of her, my doctor, my mother... the kids... everyone telling me what I can and can't eat. You can only go so far, and taking my kettle cooked chips away from me is a step too fuckin' far.

I finally stood up to her. And she didn't even walk away mumbling in Japanese. Which means she knows she went too far this time.

I used to go to the county fair in an area where the horses were being saddled and walked before their race.  I judged each horse by their musculature and how they looked overall.  Horses that were too lean showed they had been over-raced and on grain only diets for too long.  Other horses looked flabby as if they had not been raced enough.  I usually picked the horses that finished in the top three. If only I had a friend in the stands that could take my hand signals to place the bets.  LOL! I wonder if that is even legal?

Since my wife hijacked our honeymoon last year and dragged me to star wars crap, she's letting me pick what we're doing for our second "first real" honeymoon.

"Hawaii and bikinis? Or somewhere else, white girl. You pick."

"DollyWood."

"Dolly what?"

"We're going to DollyWood."

"What's that, a museum for dolls?"


I've already arranged it. We're going to DollyWood in October. :D

Never been to Tennessee.

"We're going to DollyWood."


I was there with friends about 12 years ago.   It was fun.  People move in slow motion there.   We have amusement parks in Mich and Ohio where they get people off the ride and new riders on in a timely fashion.   Dollywood is like the workers are walking in molasses.   That grated on my nerves a bit.   But I'm a bit impatient at times.   I like to move move move.

I've never had pets because of allergies (other than fish), so when I get a chance to be around animals I jump at it.   We went to a place in Pigeon Forge called Parrot Mountain.   It was fun.  Many great pictures.   I think we ended up spending 2 hours or more there.

OberGatlingburg was nice too if I remember correctly.   We also did a lot of hiking in the mountains.   There are a few pretty waterfall nearby.     I don't recall if we visited caves that trip or on a different trip.

Have fun!

I was there with friends about 12 years ago.   It was fun.  People move in slow motion there.   We have amusement parks in Mich and Ohio where they get people off the ride and new riders on in a timely fashion.   Dollywood is like the workers are walking in molasses.   That grated on my nerves a bit.   But I'm a bit impatient at times.   I like to move move move.

I've never had pets because of allergies (other than fish), so when I get a chance to be around animals I jump at it.   We went to a place in Pigeon Forge called Parrot Mountain.   It was fun.  Many great pictures.   I think we ended up spending 2 hours or more there.

OberGatlingburg was nice too if I remember correctly.   We also did a lot of hiking in the mountains.   There are a few pretty waterfall nearby.     I don't recall if we visited caves that trip or on a different trip.

Have fun!

:),
Jules

Be there about a week. Look forward to exploring everywhere.

"You remember when we went to Japan and all the men there kept staring at me?"

"Yes, and it pissed me off."

It didn't really "make my day", but it's always amusing to see Karma in action.

One prize moron nearly rear-ended me coming out of the Mixmaster this morning (it's an ugly interchange in Dallas on the 35E).  He was violently lane-changing and exceeding anything like common sense.  Courtesy doesn't exist in HIS world.  A minute and about 10 cars further along I saw a cloud of smoke, so I immediately (softly) applied the brakes, signaled and moved away from it.  Yep, same asswipe, with the whole front of his car mangled all to hell, and his car wasn't moving.  About 800 feet along I saw a van pulling over with a crunched rear-end, but it was drive-able.  People were honking as they drove around Mr. Congeniality.  :D

I felt bad for the person he rear-ended.  They didn't need the drama.

Mildly amusing... I got home, went into the "living room - cum - computer lab" and turned on the ceiling fan.  One of my pink geckos had gotten inside and was on the fan blade, and it went skydiving "WOO HOOOOOOOO!!!"  It wasn't hurt; I corralled it and took it back outside into the bushes.

Back from vacation.

What made my day -- two words.

Bison Steak

Wife was asking what was for lunch and to give me some sort of idea of a direction, I asked if she had any supper thoughts. She told me she had already decided, went to the fridge and pulled out two top sirloin BISON STEAKS. Which I barbequed to perfection (rare to medium rare).

Making chicken fried ribeyes, mashed potatoes, homemade biscuits and cream gravy, then having my kids say my food is "better than a restaurant!"

Spent our vacation with the two grand sons (never again are we having them with us together). Had a vacation rental in the North Okanagan a bit north of Kelowna. Breakfast and supper at "home" everyday. The kids (6 and 12 year old cousins which explains why they won't be here together again) raved about my and my wife's cooking.

So my wife is in mourning over R2D2 dying :roll: So she binge watched the star wars movies in our home theater today in 1080p. It rained all day, so our park plans with the kids were cancelled. I made the mistake of asking her why some guy says "lockness falls in attack position" and she just had to correct me and said "No, white girl, it's "lock S-foils in attack position." to which I replied "what the hell is an S-foil anyway, and why does it have to be locked into an attack position?" To which she replied "Because that's how an X-Wing starfighter works." To which I then replied "wouldn't it be cheaper if they just made them like normal fighters and not spend all the extra money to have wings expand for no logical reason?"

She then asked me to leave the theater.  :D

S-foils were movable wings attached to a starfighter sometimes equipped with weaponry. The foils were locked in a closed position in normal flight, but when engaged in combat the foils spread open into an attack position. Notable model to have S-foils was the T-65B X-wing starfighter manufactured by Incom Corporation, posed a distinctive X shape when the S-foils were locked in attack position, which gave the laser cannons mounted on each wing a wider field of firing range.

That is "why".   :emot_laughing:

Finding out there's going to be another baby in this house next year.

While being incredibly furious about it.  :emot_banghead:

I know the feeling.


Several years ago, my wife and I were discussing how we wanted to be addressed when we became grandparents. We talked about the standard Grandma and Grandpa, the French Grandmaman and Grandpapa and even discussed the Danish terms (they differ depending upon whether the person is the father's or mother's parents).

Anyways, the next day (almost like she read our minds), my oldest calls up and tells me that she is pregnant (thus beginning several months of being refered to as my idiot 17 year old). When my wife got home, I told her that my oldest had called and said "Hi Grandma".

My wife didn't speak to me for 6 hours. And then, because I was there, I got yelled at for 1/2 an hour.

That was about 13 years ago. We just had both of our daughters' sons with us for a couple of weeks. Love them both to the ends of the earth.

Instant Karma is always such fun to watch!  :emot_laughing:

Driving to work, following an old Ford pickup pulling a flatbed trailer covered with construction debris.  I saw the crap on the trailer bouncing around and decided to switch lanes.  A silver BMW was coming up fast along the next lane, so I planned to sneak over behind him, and turned signals on.  The idiot in the BMW shot the gap between me and the trailer, and slammed on his brakes due to the speed.  Good thing I was already moving into the lane he'd just vacated.  As I pull up beside him, a fucking BRICK comes off of the trailer, bounces once on the road and shatters his windshield.

If he hadn't been a dick, that brick would have been mine.  (http://i.imgur.com/DcV2NvJ.png)

Last Christmas, my grandson was given an iPod Touch as a gift. He was quite excited about it. He made a point to get my contact info so that he could communicate via iMessage and FaceTime. Well, it didn't take long for it to get destroyed. It would seem that he set it on the top of his grandmother's (my ex) shed from which it took a 6-8 foot fall onto the ground, totally fucking up the screen. I didn't find out about it being broken until he and his cousin were out here at the beginning of August.

I had his mom send me the broken iPod in hopes that I could get it repaired. I can afford the repair fees better than mom can. Well, the bad news is that it could not be repaired. The good news is that I am sending him a brand new 32gb iPod Touch with AppleCare+. And, I am not telling them about it. I'm just going to send it.  ;D

I'm not necessarily happy about spending the money for the new device but I feel real good deep down knowing that I can make his day.

Wanted a day away and learned that my (kind of) niece was moving into her college dorm yesterday.   And offered to drive out and help her out.   She is kind of shy.   So after a couple of hours of moving in, I went out to get something for lunch while she unpacked.  When I got back, there were 2 guys in the hall.    They were cute freshmen.    To my nieces horror, I invited them into her room to meet her.    Then I offered to split our food, since they were hungry.   They hung out and helped us with some running electrical cords, hooking her tv up, getting carpet down right, and other stuff.   She became more open with them.   After a couple of hours we were all laughing and acting goofy together.    One of the guys suggested she hang out with them tomorrow (they don't start classes until Tuesday).   She was super excited they asked her to join them.   She's such a good kid, but needs to come out of her shell more easily.   

She texted me a picture a few minutes ago of her and the two guys and about 10 other kids 'hanging out'.   She thanked me for introducing me to them yesterday.

Wouldn't it be so great to go back to college.

Spent the day shopping with the baby and my sisters knocked up :emot_banghead: Fiancée. Love that girl, but it's starting to sink in that she has a Human being growing inside of her. We had a great time. Went to lunch at an amazing pizzeria. She devoured almost the whole thing before I even finished one slice. :roll:

We also have a problem with her dropping her British accent. She says it's because she lives here and her future is here, but we all love her cute Brit accent.  :roll: My sister can't stand it when she switches.

An employee brought in her 5 month old little baby girl    I've already 'kidnapped' her and she's hanging out in my office in her bouncy (because it's quieter in here).    I've had fun with her.   I LOVE a babies laugh.   It's nap time now.    She's sooooo precious.

There's just on patent firm here in town.  I met with them once four years and they were impressed, but they had no openings.

I got a call that one of their support staff just retired and they are looking.  I'm going in next Wednesday to meet everyone and to discuss things.

I had two very pleasant things happen. Yesterday I had a second lunch date with a woman I am interested in. It's not strange that I like her. She is bold, open, is interested in many of the things I am. She is in the comic business and is a strong personality with good self-confidence. As bold and open as she is, she is cautious and careful. And has a crazy wit. She offered both a kiss and her touch. I crave feeling someone's body next to mine when we click. I am relaxed and very pleased in here company.

She told me she likes me. In no uncertain terms she told me she wants to see me again.

Spent a fortune to take me, the wife, sister and knocked up fiancée to the movie. The tickets were ridiculous. The snacks were really expensive. And that kid and her gestating Human vacuumed up the largest popcorn they had. But it was so much fun being with them.  :D

My sister cuted us into paying for everything. She rubbed her girls pregnant tummy and reminded us they're college students. Who live in their own house, have a car I gave them, and get their money from us. :roll:

Football Sunday.   About 10 guests invited over.   A number of my brother in laws friends coming over.   He'll be very happy.    My friend, my mom and one of the guys girlfriends helping with lots of food.   Can't wait.     A lot of laughs.  AND I have 0, 0  in the football squares for the Detroit vs Nashville game in the first quarter and lots of 7's and 3's in other squares.   $ yay

Also, other than my friend having to run back to her place a couple of times.    I've been able to spend the entire weekend with her.     It has been so great.    I love her so much.  

This morning when I woke up.   She was still sleeping, but we were holding hands.    What a great way to wake up.   Need to turn the A/C cooler, it was too hot.   I remember cuddling when we fell asleep, but gosh was I hot this morning.

Well, my football squares didn't work out as planned.   The Lions got a safety right away and messed up the numbers for me for the whole game.   2-0 earlier in the game.   Ugh

What made my day...........  My mom didn't come to the party.    Okay not nice Jules, but when daddy said, "Mom has a headache and is stayin home today."   I was ver happy.

A lot of fun.   Finally got everything cleaned up at 9:00.   7 hours of football.    

Best part of the day was hearing my brother in law laughing with his friends.    
He doesn't do that very often.   Even my niece noticed.   "Daddy is laughing a lot today."

We received notice from the insurance company that my roofing job passed inspection, so now we are insured!  Hurray!

We have a foam roof.  Some of the coating was worn away exposing the foam.  It took a while because it was raining so much. But I finished painting on the new roof coating Tuesday.  The coating is a new silicone type.  It is supposed to last 50 years.  What I don't like about the silicone is that it does not stay white, but yellows in the sun.

The dumb inspector had no idea what he was looking at.  We live in a galvanized steel house that was the framed out in wood on the inside.  The roof is also galvanized steel. But in the sun it will flex as the heat causes it to expand and contract.  It leaked a lot before the coating.  Part of his report said that our roof was "bowed".  We had to explain this was natural for our kind of structure. And yes, the whole house is grounded in case of a lighting strike.

Yay, Lois.

Inspectors.   UGH

When we remodeled our upstairs to make two bedrooms into 1 bedroom and master bath, the inspectors were relentless.   Lots of money in engineering for the support of the weight of the bathtub and shower, yet they didn't want to believe the engineers reports.    The lead engineer used to work for this inspection company our city uses.    Got that solved and the HVAC inspector comes to the house and uses a micrometer on the duct work.    It was .001" too light.  .001"    1/1000    So, HVAC company gets back out 6 days later, they use their micrometer and it shows okay.    So come to find out the inspectors micrometer was out of calibration.   
After drywall went up, they wanted it taken back down to make sure the wood studs were protected by metal wraps where wire passed through the studs, so a nail or screw wouldn't go through and hit the wire.    This is after they already said it was okay to proceed with drywall, but the previous inspector forgot to check the box for that.    I HATE THESE GUYS.   

I'm happy that you're happy!   

Galvanized Steel.   I imagine it as being very pretty.

The 39 to 1 long shot team in the World Cup of Hockey is through to the finals.


The Canadian team (pre-tournament favourite) plays Team Europe in the best of 3 final beginning on Tuesday.

Team Europe is made up of players from 8 different countries. Quite an accomplishment for a team that has no history and probably has no future (the format for the next World Cup of Hockey has not been determined).

Any time I go out for a run.  Rain.

Hey Katie......

if you can still find one (they are collector's weapons now).
Savage Arms used to make a great "bolt action" .22 cal. tube feed rifle.
The gun could handle a mix of rounds, short, long, long rifle all at once. you don't have to worry about what to buy for ammo. The biggest hurdle for you might be simply "do you like bolt action rifles". But all in all .22 cal. are fun to play with and are great for killing beer and soda cans.

Love,

Going to change this subject to "What made your YEAR" for this post.

I let myself into my friends place.   She was talking with her mom on the phone and motioned for me to sit down and held up her index finger letting me know that she would be off the phone in a minute.  I could only hear her part of the conversation.

A couple of minutes later, her mom must have asked about me because my friend looked at me and said, "I'm really glad you like her, mom.   I like her too.    In fact, I'm pretty sure she's the one."

She paused as her mom responded then said, "Yes, I love her with all my heart.  I've never felt this way about anyone.   Julie is the person I've been waiting for.  I love her so much."

I had a pretty good today.

She paused as her mom responded then said, "Yes, I love her with all my heart.  I've never felt this way about anyone.   Julie is the person I've been waiting for.  I love her so much."

I had a pretty good today.   






Congrats, Best News Ever............
This made my day to hear that.....

Love,

Got a call from my friend.   She's skipping out of work, she told them she's not feeling good (she fibbed).   Guess I'll do the same.   She's stopping at a Redbox and we are going to crash on her couch and watch movies this afternoon as we play hookey.

I left work yesterday before noon.    Was at my friends laying on the couch together watching movies.   I fell asleep for an hour.    She put another movie in, I fell asleep.    At 4, I went home and sat down, fell asleep for a couple hours.   So far, I had gotten about 4 hours sleep.   We ate dinner and sat down I fell asleep for another hours.    I went to bed at 10pm and got up at 5:30am.     So in the last 19 hours, I got about 12 hours of sleep.    It felt soooooo goooooood.   :)

The last two weeks I haven't been sleeping very well.   So it was perfect.

We had them last week.   I like to put the meat on the bottom bun, then layer BBQ potato chips on top, then the top bun.    Mmmmm  my mouth is watering.   All the sloppy that hits the plate, I scoop up with another bbq chip.    I will only eat sloppy joes with very close family members, never friends.   It' a very private intimate thing.  ;)

Speaking of potato chips. I found 'Dill Pickle chips' at my local grocery yesterday. I was so happy. Lays use to make them, then stopped. Now the grocery store brand started making them. I'm not really a junk food junky, but I love those chips. They are so freaking delicious.  :emot_thdrool:

Didn't really make my day, but was funny nonetheless:

Stuck in jammed rush hour traffic, going nowhere fast.  The guy behind me is driving a new Cadillac Escalade, suit coat on, obvious gold watch band, idly picking his nose, inspecting the result and then eating it.

I guess money really CAN buy happiness... but it can't buy COUTH.

I went to my favorite local bakery this morning and as I waited in line, I could feel someone watching me. I turned around to see this really handsome young guy checking me out. (He had to be in his mid 20's) Looking at my ass actually.  It really surprised me, because I was wearing my old comfy tight Levi's, and a long sleeve cotton shirt, with no makeup. His eyes met mine for just a second, he smiled slightly at me, then looked away. I turned around and ordered, then looked back in his direction and he was gone, but now there was a young lady sitting across from where he had just been. I pay for my order then walk outside to walk back to the car. Guess who's outside? He watched as I walked past, then winked at me as he talked on his phone. I smiled, then quickly walked back to my car. My husband asked, what are you smiling about? I played it off, because he tends to get jealous, but that really made my day to have that fine younger man checking me out.

Totally bored right now as I'm watching The Voice from the other night.    Bear with me as I blabber.   It'll make sense by the end.  hahaha

So I thought I would have some fun in saying what made my day...........

My brother in law was a big computer geek.   When there were major changes in his life, he would title that stage in his life like a software version is named.  Some changes were huge and received a version upgrade and some were minor and received a version update.
 The upgrade or update might by either good or bad.

So, sitting here tonight I started figuring out what version I'm on.   Each version has many updates, but too many things to list so I'll just list major upgrades with just a few updates worth mentioning.

0.1 to 0.99 was before puberty

1.0  Puberty

2.0  Discovering boys and sex.

3.0  Going to college,
3.1  Quitting college,
3.2  Joining the army,
3.3  Completing basic training...etc...
3.7  Leaving the army

4.0 My engagement to be married.
4.1 Our break- up when he cheated on me.

5.0  I suffered a stroke.  It was one of my biggest life changing moments.  I originally left this version update blank, but in August 2018, I posted about it here (http://www.kristensboard.com/forums/index.php?topic=63967.msg515165#msg515165).

6.0  The passing of my sister  
6.1  Moving in with my brother in law to help care for my niece.
I had small updates over that year.  
Heck, I'll even give joining KB a version (6.5), becoming mod (6.6)    ;)

7.0  First real relationship since 5.0 happened.   She ended up moving in with me.  (Some version updates I can't mention as it would reveal too much about me).
7.2  Voted as Perv of the Year by the awesome KB membership.
7.3  Broke up with 'her'
7.5  I started dating Mark.  (The most embarrassing first date EVER).
7.5.1  Mark moved in with me

8.0  Mark asking me to marry him.
8.1  Traveling overseas for the first time ever.  I loved Europe.
8.2  I got married to the most wonderful man in the most beautiful place.  Ireland.
8.3  My mother passed away.

This afternoon I saw my comic book artist again. After two months of talking, meeting for lunch and drinks. we were supposed to meet at a massage parlor for a deep tissue massage.

Vinney, Watcher, get your minds out of the gutter. It's a legit business.

Unfortunately, they were too busy to let us in.

Alternative, we went to a restaurant, sat at the bar, she had an interesting Tequila cocktail, I had some MaCallium 12 year old, neat. We sat and talked about ourselves again, talked about international politics in the 19th century, talked about near death experiences, talked about our families. Shared crab balls in a spiced coconut sauce.

We got ready to leave, and I told her I really wanted to take her to dinner.

She said she would love that.

I walked her to her car, as we talked more.

We stood and I took her face in my hands and thanked her for being so crazy, yet so sane. And kissed her.

Best date with her yet.

Before it started to rain people were asking to sit in it and take selfies. ;D The amount of power it takes to light everything inside and out is ridiculous, but totally worth it. Even my wife was playing with the thingy you input the time into.

A good nights sleep.   Cuddling.   The house got chilly.   

Coming out into the house and looking out the window at the park and noticing the sun on all the beautiful trees whose leaves have changed colors dramatically over the last week.   

A fun night in store.   Going to the casino this evening and staying in downtown Detroit overnight.    A fun and relaxing evening planned.

I might even get my hair cut this afternoon.   It is long overdue.

Maybe I'll get a 70's Farrah fawcet style. I can easily pull it off.

Even the baby got a cute little witch's hat.  :D Then I treated them to lunch at McDonald's. Which was terrible of me, but I had coupons and it was right there.

Went and did some candy shopping and the girl at the register was showing her cleavage. She has big tits, and she's kinda fat but cute. She talks like a she's from the hood, but she's white. She caught me staring, and when it was clear she invited to the office... and she let me bury my face in her boobs. She held my head as I did it.

Now, you're saying "bitch, you one day away from your wedding anniversary... what's wrong with you?"

I had a fight with my wife last night when she asked me how I thought our first year went, and I told her it was great, but had it's ups and downs like her constant lecturing me and treating me like I'm disabled or a child because of my health issue. She expected me to say it's been perfect.

So I did what I did and I enjoyed it. It's not like I fucked her, and I could have.  :roll:

Dressing up for Halloween, because it's fun.        So far, I'm the only one at work dressed up, even after I sent out an email last week offering a gift certificate to a nearby restaurant for the best costume.    Still early though, most people show up at 8:00am.

I'm Rosie the Riveter

First wedding anniversary.  :D We got our first big argument out of the way and humped each other for hours last night.

I'm strapping on my extremely expensive proton pack and custom outfit to be a Ghostbuster again this year.  :D

Halloween was so much fun. Took the kids trick or treating. Mountains of candy.  :roll: I met a few junior Ghostbusters who couldn't believe i had a real proton pack and uniform and equipment. They loved seeing it lit up.  :D

Now today is half off candy day.  :D

My 4 year old put herself into a sugar coma.  :roll: She passed out with an empty wrapper in her hand and chocolate on her mouth. So cuuuuute.

Halloween needs to last longer.  :-[

Had to get dressed early today (boo). New carpet install day for the master bedroom, walk-in closet and stairs that go up to the master suite.

Stage 1 of renos. Not really major. Next step is probably new kitchen followed by new flooring in the basement and on the stairs that go there.

Good brakes and tires on a rain-slick street at 45MPH.

I was driving home an hour ago after a light rain.  Hadn't rained in a few weeks, so the streets are amazingly slick.  Blowing down a 2-lane road, I see a car at an angled cut through the *wide* center median.  Sitting.  I'm still oncoming.  Still sitting.  Still sitting.  I get RIGHT THE FUCK on top of 'em, and she pulls out.  If I'd skidded even a little, I'd have rammed her; it was that close of a near-miss.

As I begin to breathe again, I notice the handicap plates and a damned little CHILD in the passenger seat.  Yeah, I can see why you're handicapped, but your friends shouldn't let you drive, as lousy at it as you are.  You have REALLY shitty friends, if they haven't told you that YOU SUCK behind the wheel.

Alexa and I are going shooting this Sunday. She wants to shoot my M1. We are bringing our pistols too. I think I will bring one of my Mosins too.

She helped lighten my heart today. She is the most sane crazy person I know. She suggested, and we went to the Hot Stone Massage today. Had a couples massage. It was so nice. She bought me a coffee afterwards.

I'm safely sure that Little Willy wasn't running around without me.  I may be getting older, but in no wise senile.  Luckily it doesn't run in our family.

I've seen a couple of women wearing a super-fine glitter above their eyes, and that's what it looked like (not the grade school variety).  I'm utterly stumped: I wear tight jeans, and it'd be truly hard to get something in 'em without me knowing it.  I got pranked somehow, kudos to whoever pulled it off!   :emot_bigokay:  

Hopefully it was one of the women...

STILL not sure I have it all off of my ass, though.  It's hard to see back there.  The naughty bits are clean now.  "No, I was just cleaning it, REALLY!!"   ;D

It was a pleasure to read this poem and his explanation of it.  



It just makes my day coming to KB and getting to experience our talented and intelligent members.   I'm not just talking about Herschel here, it's everybody.  Too many people and instances to point to.    

KB isn't just some porn site to come to to 'get off' as I first thought of it when I joined in February.   It's a wonderful group of individuals who I look forward to hearing from every day.      

Thank you to everyone for making my day, every day.

Me, I damn near died and went to heaven.
Me: "Okay Jazzie, tell you what I need (you ready)...."I need Chocolate Chip Cookies".

A day off!      It's been a whirlwind the last 3 days.    Still having a few family members over before they head back to California, but it is low key and we are just going to relax and hang about the house.   Maybe play some games with the kids while the football games are on.

The visit from hell actually turned out quite nice.    So, that made my day last week.  :)

It also made my day to log on this morning and see a familiar face that hasn't been on KB in a few months.    TinyDancer has been missed.

Good brakes and common fucking sense!

Blowing down the 635E between Royal and Walnut Hill, traffic is iffy at the tag-end of Rush Hour.  I see a few cars ahead (not all) do a panic stop, so I gingerly hit the brakes (I'd left plenty of stopping distance).  Out of nowhere, a child's playhouse goes skidding across in front of me from the left lane towards the right lane.  The little bit of brakes turns into a little more brakes...  I missed it.  Not so lucky was the black Dodge Charger to the right of me that refused to slow for probable conditions (panic stops ahead).  Next time I look he's a couple of blocks back with the emergency blinkers on, in the middle of 5 lanes.

I was at the grocery store earlier today. There was a little old very elderly lady, trying to pick up a heavy large bottle of vinegar. I was right next to her grabbing another item. She could barely lift the large container. I offered to help, then suggested that maybe buying two small bottles instead of one large one would be easier for her. She was so cute and said, "Why didn't I think of that? Thank you my dear." It was really no big deal, but it made my day. :)

Wife decided to put up the Christmas tree yesterday. I came home and she was frustrated to no end. The tree is one of those pre-lit ones and about 4 to 6 rows of lights would not light. I took a cursory look at it and basically said we would look at it later.

This afternoon while she was out for a job interview, I decided to take that closer look and found a broken wire. A wire stripper, about an inch of electrical tape and a little bit of know how has resulted in the tree shining the way it is supposed to and very happy wife.

This'll be gross, but I was doing X-mas stuff with the kids today and my 4 year old basically planted herself on my lap. I went through a cup of cocoa, a bottle of water and milk and cookies. Many hours later, I guess the pressure of her sitting on my lap hid it, I had to pee so bad I couldn't walk. I barely made it to a bathroom without exploding.

Holy fuck was it the best pee. I felt soooooooooooo good after.  :D

Last week I posted in what ruined my day....
Driving to Springfield, Illinois on Sunday to have a quick Christmas celebration with my friends family.   Leaving early, getting home late.     It will be nice, but we had to cancel some other plans, that's what I'm disappointed with.

Well, yesterday I had the best day in a long time.    It was a long drive to and from, but the in between was a spectacular day that I won't soon forget.   Her family is the greatest.   

Growing up it was just my sister and I, along with my parents, just the 4 of us.   We would occasionally get together with aunts or uncles, but not often.   Because of that, we would usually go to Florida for Christmas.     
But Yesterday! It was just her immediate family, along with their spouses and all the nieces and nephews.    20 of them.    It was a really fun day and I wish we could have turned it into a few days.   Her mom and dad love me. :)     They're super sweet.

Took a scenic route with the dogs coming home from the dog park today.  We were going down a major parkway with a tree (now bare) lined boulevard.  All of a sudden an adult Bald Eagle swooped down through the trees and was skimming over the snow just a few feet off the ground.  It kept flying in and out of the branches, moving ahead of the car.  Finally the eagle landed in a tree so I parked and got out grabbing my phone.  I moved to where I could get a branch free shot, but that was too close for my feathered friend.  Off it went again into a wooded area.  Eagles making a major come back, but this was in a heavily populated urban area!

Dec 29 -- New Era Stadium -- Canada - USA  OUTDOORS.  Do they even have outdoor hockey in the States?


When the Oilers and Jets played outdoors, it was the first time ever that Milan Lucic ever played outdoors. He's from Vancouver and the climate right there on the coast is not conducive to outdoor rinks.

Cool.  Kind of a coincidence...... I spent the day at the Detroit Auto Show.   We have this little automobile industry thing going on around here in, so the Auto Show is kind of a big deal.   
The event is super crowded, but a lot of fun.    The cars, the models (male and female), the entertainment going on all around the place.     And, I had a special access pass to a catered event going on in an off room where I could get anything to eat or drink that I wanted. 
My favorite car today: The Mercedes-AMG GT
Base price $111,000, about $145,000 fully loaded.  (pictures link (https://www.google.com/search?q=Mercedes-AMG+GT&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiT5eyJ-MLRAhVrsFQKHTlSD1cQ_AUICCgB&biw=1393&bih=803))
I was considering getting 3...... a silver one, a blue one, and a yellow one.    But decided against it as I prefer buying domestic.    Plus, I remembered my car is running just fine, so I don't need a new car.

The first week of July will see our 20th anniversary upon us. With my bride with me, I have already completed Project 20 More Years. New matching wedding bands were purchased. My wife liked what we chose (she actually chose them, I agreed that they were by far the best we had seen) but was hemming and hawwing. After all, we have 6 months before the anniversary. But, they might not be available the next time we come into the store.

She has hers already -- it didn't need resizing. I will get mine next weekend.

Just logged into the bank, and the radiology lab refunded MOST of the fee I'd paid in December for a full MRI.

That helps loads, as I've been carrying over $5K on my credit card this last 5 weeks.  Buying another car in early December pretty well wiped out my finances, when you add in the shit that happened a couple of weeks later.  Wrapped around the new year, I got hit with TWO year's worth of deductibles on the insurance in short order.

"Open when you miss me": Late daughter leaves behind letters to mom

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/late-daughter-leaves-behind-letters-to-comfort-mom/ (http://www.cbsnews.com/news/late-daughter-leaves-behind-letters-to-comfort-mom/)

Because of my heart condition I've been doing something similar for my family and especially my kids. I wrote them a letter which I hope they'll never read.

But if it happens and I have to leave them I want them to have something to lift them up a bit.  :D

Just got a phone call from a vendor.   He's in the area and wants to take me and a coworker to lunch.     The place he suggested is my favorite place.    An Italian restaurant with a few locations around metro Detroit.

Yay, nice surprise.

Nope......I wanted Sea Scallops, but they were too expensive.   So I ordered a ravioli dish with salad.   When the gentleman that was treating us ordered the Sea Scallops, I said, "Oh, I didn't see that on the menu, I'll switch my order to that also please."

OMG they were so good.

The supermarket by me has frozen sea scallops (by the bag) and the frozen ones cost a cool $20.00 dollars a bag, The fresh ones are completely out of sight. But if you know how to cook with frozen scallops you can make some pretty good seafood dishes.

LOL.......The Police just came to my door.....!!!!!
They want to fine me for destruction of Police Property.
(WTH is my response).
LOL.....My horse (you read that right), My horse chased down a Police Drone and apparently destroyed it in his field, now they want it back, but my horse won't let them get in his field, so they came and got me off the couch (damn flu) and had me go get it.
So, after I told them to get screwed, I'm not paying anything for your toys.
Then it all came down to "why" was your drone that low in my horses field..??
They wanted my ID......didn't happen.
They wanted my address.....get it off the mail box.
They wanted to arrest me....good luck, didn't happen, not my fault.
They said my horse was a danger.....I said only to idiots.
Finally I got tired of the pure bullshit and just called the State Police to come and straighten it out.
Went back to the couch, after I brought the horse back into the barn (for some reason I had a strong feeling that something bad was going to happen to my  horse).
I actually left the local police and the state police at the end of my driveway / road arguing about what to do about me and my horse.

In all honesty I think they were testing it out and didn't know the horse was in the field until he came charging out after it.....which brings up the point.....What kind of an idiot would let a horse get ahold of a Police drone to begin with.

Anything remotely in or near his field is subject to his like or dislike (if it's dislike, expect it to be destroyed). He loves kids and absolutely "hates" motorcycles.

But, I have to say, they obviously chose the prettiest girls to sell those things. My daughter and her friend are gorgeous, and so were the other girls. People practically melted when they said "would you like to buy some girl scout cookies?"  :facepalm:

Any good New England Lobsterman will tell you that any lobster above 2 lbs / 2.5 lbs is going to be / have tough meat after cooking. So you did good with a 1.5 lbs . So my next question is were they alive or frozen when you bought them.??

Well, it's day two for my wife in new job number two in the last two weeks. She resigned from the first job on Friday after 4 days of feeling like her life was in danger during the commute home (30 minutes of freeway driving). When the job is what you want but you fear for your life on the drive, you gotta bite the bullet and go someplace else.

It was on Wednesday of last week that she got a call from a company that she had interviewed with asking if she was still available. It would seem the person they hired wasn't working out. The commute to this second place -- 15 minutes and no freeway driving. It has now been two days of a relaxed wife coming home. So that's what has made my day today.

Earlier in the week up to 12 inches of snow was predicted for Minneapolis.  As the week progressed the storm kept moving south and the predicted inches lowered to only 3 to five inches as of last nights prediction.  Looked out the window at 5:30 when I woke up...not of fucking flake!  Woo Hoo!

Just south of us high winds and 8 to 12 inches of snow.  We may still get a few inches.  Big whoop.  It's that time of year when I declare, "If God put it there, God can take it away.

Our contractual obligations to our cell phone provider has ended. Made a phone call and made a change in our plan and ended up saving $40.00/month. From our perspective, we lose nothing in terms of what is provided to us as we are not heavy users of the devices and we gain 1 GB of data usage.

The CFO is quite happy that we don't have to change providers. And we are saving money.

We had a week and a half of super warm days for a northern location.  Highs in the 50s and 60s.  That brought some Trumpeter Swans and a few Canada Geese back to a refuge 80 miles north of us.  Took a quick day trip there and found most of them right in town at a small lake.  Got my first pictures of the "spring migration"...about a month earlier than normally.

I think I also saw a couple of KBers there too.  From off the lake, I heard a loud "Bite Me!", followed by "OK, you asked for it!".  I got a few pictures of the encounter, like this one.

I'm pretty sure the owner of the tablet was running a scenario in their mind starring the pink power ranger. I turned it off and put it back. And I won't ask questions even though I really should.  :roll:

Temper, temper. Holes in the ground and theatre rooms are not selling points that people are willing to pay more for. To get an estimate on your house worth check the taxing agency and compare similar square footage houses in your neighborhood, both for tax amounts and for similar houses that have recently been sold.

I work in the financial industry for a company that does outsourcing for mortgage companies.

I have more than a passing knowledge of these things.

So, yes, I do know squat. A great deal more than your mother.

An increase of 50% in a house value is not done by a pool and a theatre room. Especially a 100k increase.

And amend your attitude. This is Not 1408.

I drove 250 miles in four different counties today.  Somewhere in the middle of all that, and old friend I haven't seen in five years sent me a text, asking what I was doing.  He was in town and wanted to meet.  I asked him where he was, and he gave me the name of a restaurant less than 2 minutes from my location.  I pulled off at the next exit.  What are the chances?

After 3 weeks of intense issues in timing, access to subject matter experts, missed review deadlines I thought the writers in our documentation group should get a little relief. I passed around a copy of things Klingon Tech Writers say.

The grey funk lifted and team spirits were raised without the use of alcohol.

Quote
Klingons do not sit in meetings, we take what we want and kill anyone who opposes us!

Certification?! Taking your head and putting it on a pike in my office is all the certification I need!

I will return to the homeworld and my documentation will arise triumphant in the STC Documentation Gauntlet, leaving all others drowning in their own dangling modifiers. It will be glorious!!

Not returning my review copies by the agreed deadline is a declaration of war. Indeed, it is a good day to die.

These software specifications are for the weak and timid!!

This version of Word is a piece of GAGH! I need the latest version of Framemaker if I am to do battle with this manual.

You cannot really appreciate Dilbert unless you’ve read it in the original Klingon.

Indentation?! I will show you how to indent when I indent your skull!

What is this talk of “drafts”? Klingons do not make document “drafts”. Our documents escape, leaving a bloody trail of SMEs in its wake!

Passive voice is a sign of weakness. Its elimination will be quick.

Proofreading? Klingons do not proofread. Our documents are purified with pain-sticks which cleanses the documents of impurities.

I have challenged the entire Marketing and R&D team to a Bat-Leh contest! They will not concern us again.

A TRUE Klingon warrior riddles his document with bullets, leaving it to beg for mercy.
By changing the layout of my manual, you have challenged the honor of my family. Prepare to die!

You question the worthiness of my grammar? I should kill you where you stand!
Our users will know fear and cower before our suite of manuals and online help! Ship it! Ship it and let them flee like the dogs they are!

Being a knight in shining armour for the love of my life yesterday.

About the time she should have been walking in the door, my wife called me. Nothing overly strange as sometimes she is held up at work. This time she was still at work but only because her car wouldn't start. So, I got up off the couch, got dressed for going outside, drove to her work location and boosted her car.

Went out and bought a battery charger and applied it to her car. Fully charged now.

Over the weekend, we had snow fall on Friday night and through most of the day on Saturday. The contractors who move the snow were out on Saturday morning and got warned off because they were too early (noise by-law here says you can't be using leaf blowers, snow blowers, lawn mowers, etc before 9 AM on weekends). Anyways they returned after 9 and finished doing their usual shitty job. Sunday morning they were back because of the snow that fell and drifted on Saturday after they left. They did an even shittier job because all they did was use the leaf blowers. Where it had drifted, they just shrugged their shoulders and left the drift where it was.

After several e-mails to the manager of the prime contractor (these guys sub out the work), the workers were back this morning with snow blowers and shovels getting the job done properly. THAT made my day today.

I accidentally walked the check in a restaurant at lunch.  Long story, but there were distractions, and it completely slipped my mind.  30 miles down the road and the manager calls me, and asked if I meant to leave without paying.  I was mortified and offered to turn around or give him a credit card number over the phone.  "No worries.  Lunch is on us.  I just wanted to make sure you weren't displeased with anything we did."  New customer for life.

The dine and dash king.   hahaha    That happened to me before.   Walked out on a $20 bill.   I thought my friend paid, she thought I paid.   A couple of drinks.   We got in the taxi taking us back to the hotel and I handed her $10.   
She said "what's that for."   
"The bill."   
"I didn't pay, I thought you did."
I called them and gave them my credit card with an extra tip.


I just had a good day.   Worried a bit about someone, but all is good.

A co-worker brought in Krispy Kreme doughnuts.   Normally, I wouldn't indulge, but I'm so distraught about forgetting to wear green today, I've secured 2 for my consumption.

A co-worker brought in Krispy Kreme doughnuts.   Normally, I wouldn't indulge, but I'm so distraught about forgetting to wear green today, I've secured 2 for my consumption.   

On Tuesday, one of the company's suppliers came in for his monthly visit and as he usually does, he left a 1/2 dozen doughnuts with me at the security desk. I offered my boss 1, took 1 for myself and then distributed the other 4 to who ever happened by.

The same gentleman was in on Thursday and asked if we wanted something different the next time -- muffins, cookies, whatever. I thanked him and told him the doughnuts were fine. Because there are only two security staff on when he comes in, 6 is too many for us so we share. I made sure to tell him how much we appreciated his gesture.

And now -- what made my day on St. Patrick's Day was the laugh I had courtesy of my 100% Danish (born in Canada to Danish immigrants) wife.

I told her the 17 March was speak Danish Day. After all, the Irish are simply Vikings who didn't go home after raiding.  She had no come back for that so her reply was that I made it up.

The city of Dublin as we know it was actually founded the the Vikings. There was a small settlement there when the Vikings arrived but it was the port that the Vikings built that resulted in the city growing to what it is now.

What is making my day today........   We are taking my niece to see Beauty And The Beast.   
After we decided to go and we told my niece, she told us..... "I have to sit between you two so you can't hold hands and you can concentrate on the movie."

Not surprisingly she said she wants to work with animals. She loves animals. She'll probably be a vet or something. She can't stand seeing animals in any pain or suffering.

OMG!   I hope you enjoyed it.   One of my favorites.





What made my day (and all the females in the office).   We have a new UPS guy and he walks in with his chiseled chin and dark tan and dark eyes and best of all, a flat brimmed cowboy hat that is the same color as his uniform (Like pic below only in brown.)   A couple of girls were at lunch and missed him, so about an hour later, I caught them all gathered around one of the computers looking at the security video checking him out.   I had to yell at them.  Then got a laugh when said I was going to order something on Amazon for Monday delivery.   Just ruggedly handsome guy.   I don't know if that hat is allowed by UPS.   I might have to confiscate it.

Thinking about that trip to St. John's years ago with a certain tall, lithe Norwegian girl.  We stayed at Caneel Bay.  The bungalows weren't air conditioned, and the walls were slatted to allow sea breezes to circulate.  She was rather enthusiastic in bed, and I'm certain all our neighbors got an earful.  Her breath tasted like rum, and her skin smelt of coconut oil... heaven.

Beautiful, yes. But, apparently, one of the guys at the plant got attacked as he was walking to his work unit yesterday.


As for today, the fascia on my chimney is fixed-ish. It is tacked down and will not fly off if the wind picks up. It got torn flapping in the wind the past few days and needs to be replaced. AND, the fix job was no cost. I've asked the roofing company to fix it properly and they will be in touch in a few days to finalize times.

And my roofer is female and is smoking hot. ;D

With a 1/4 I go buy new spring and summer outfits for myself.
With the other 1/4, I buy an expensive bottle of bourbon or scotch and I spend the rest frivolously, so far it's been on my niece.

I'm not sure this belongs here, but because of how poorly my mom treated me in my life, I take a little joy when something harmless pisses her off.  So, it made my day.

Before telling the story that irked her, you should know that I broke up with my girlfriend 3 weeks ago.    Please...No 'I'm sorry' or anything.  It's fine.  It's for the best.  And I'd prefer not talk about it either here or in PM.  Thank you.


So, my niece and I, along with my parents, were invited to Easter Dinner at my brother-in-laws brothers house, I'll call him Jack.  Sitting eating, the conversation turned to my break up.       Jack gives me a serious look and says, "Jules, you're a good catch.  Don't let this bring you down.  Hold your head up high, be confident and get out there and write your name in as many bathroom stalls as you can."    I laughed along with everyone else.

His 20 year old daughter says, "Don't worry aunt Julie, we'll go out and pick up guys together."   That shut her protective daddy's mouth up.

Then she adds, "Wait, are you going to date girls now?  Or guys again?"  

I said, "I don't know.  I guess it depends."

"So you're bi-?"

I think about it and nod.

My mom says, "Can we stop talking openly about sinning at our Easter dinner celebration."

Everybody shuts up for a moment.   My daddy breaks the silence with, "Hey, there's an upside to being bisexual, you have twice as many prospects."

My mom got up from the table.

I've been getting closer and closer with my "little brother" which still sounds weird to say. He's a great kid. Way too much like me. :roll: Thankfully neither of us are like our father.  :D

His mom asked me if I could look after him today, he got hurt at school so he's taking a few days off. We're going to the park with the baby and dog and then out to lunch.

I can't believe I'm excited to spend time with him. Only because it's still so fucking weird having a little brother who's my daughters age.  :roll:

And he loves my NEW gaming laptop. I sold the other one and got a brand new one that's more powerful. So we'll play games together too.  :D

Lessons From the Dog Park

Here we are, first of May.  Temps in the upper 30s and a chilling mist falling.  The two Bassets I'm a dog walker for hopped in the Basset Limo for their daily visit to the dog park.

There were only a handful of people and dogs braving the day.  Us two-leggers were bundled up and grousing about the weather, generally feeling sorry for ourselves.

The dogs?  Running and playing. Sniffing butts.  Chasing each other and generally having fun.  There was sniffing of the trees and fence to pick up the latest "message"...lifting a leg to leave a reply.  In short, they didn't give a damn about the weather.  They just took what they got and made the most of it.

There's so much we can learn from our "dumb" animal friends just by paying attention.

BTW:  I did inform my two that it was a 3 - P day...Poop, pee and pack it in. :D

I'm a little more responsible than that.

Got an e-mail on Thursday from the head instructor asking if I could do the afternoons this weekend for motorcycle training. Turned into Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning. An easy $200.00 . A lot of fun despite the rainy and cold weather we experienced.

After three days of soggy weather, today I made a nice visit to the neighborhood I grew up in, bright sun shining down on trees in full leaf and ornamentals in full blossom. Lots of houses with solar panels on the roof. Most of the old houses are still there, including two I once lived in, one of which my grandfather built. Lots of new houses in places where we used to play ball or hunt rabbits, but generally speaking the neighborhood looks well kept. Nesting swans in a pond that never had swans when I was a boy. Vehicular traffic has increased by a factor of I would say ten times what it was when I was a lad. Fancy lunch with my oldest friend, with whom I used to play in his backyard sandbox.

Two weeks ago, I took my car in for some relatively simple work -- oil change, check the brakes, replace the rear wiper blade (and arm cuz I was stupid) and check out the shuddering I was experiencing on acceleration. Turns out my car needed a new clutch. I'm thinking "Oh boy. Big bill coming." 

The made my day --- free clutch. While there was no recall on these things, Ford extended the warranty on the transmission (including clutch) on the 2011-15 Fiestas.

Took it in last Tuesday. Got the call on Wednesday that it was ready. The dealership is close so I'll walk. One small problem -- 40mph winds and raining. I walked in looking like a drowned rat.

Bittersweet day yesterday.

My sister passed away 3 years ago yesterday.   We picked my brother in law up and brought him back to the house.   We looked at pictures and videos.   Some of my sisters friends and family stopped by.   It was a beautiful day and fun remembering how much she meant to all of us and how she affected us.   Some former co-workers of hers stopped by also.    Just a very special day remembering her.

And everybody got a chance to meet my boyfriend.   I've gotten a few emails and texts today from people that met him for the first time, saying that I appear very happy.   Which I am.   My parents also got the chance to meet his daughters as they stopped by for a bit.  Such sweet girls.   Love them too.

Great day!  I got some really great drugs, followed by deep anal penetration!  Most action I've seen since....since, well I guess my last colonoscopy. :emot_laughing:

The downside was only getting four hours of sleep, drinking 4 liters of Golytely and no doubt increasing our water bill for this month after all the toilet flushings. :facepalm:
Better news, only one teeny polyp found, so I don't have to do this again for five years, rather than the three year gap since my last one.

Joking aside, any of you over 50, or with family history of colon cancer, get your check up scheduled.  Really, good drugs and best of all, early detection if there is something up the old "poop chute". (other than your head ;D)

Getting a green-light from the cardiologist earlier today.  He's quite pleased with my recent changes in diet (http://www.kristensboard.com/forums/index.php?topic=54045.msg466668#msg466668), although he still nags about smoking.  He's not nearly as strident as before, since I'm making an effort.

His nurse / medical assistant confided that I was in better shape than anyone my age that he'd seen, so please take his grumpy-ness with a grain of salt.  :D

Though truthfully, I don't have any cardiac artery disease any longer, since he put a stent in to correct the one small area where there was an obstruction.  His angiogram look at all of the other arteries around the heart read "no significant artery disease" for each spot he looked at, which translates to "no significant arteriosclerosis anywhere" (what killed my dad and his brother).  I finally got him to agree that LDL cholesterol doesn't CAUSE arteriosclerosis, it's merely a risk factor for it.  Since I'm pushing 60 and don't have it yet, the other elements aren't in place to cause a problem.

Yes, we made it through the door.  

He had to take a work call just before we got to my house.   Just after entering the house, I got his attention for a moment and told him I was going to put on my bathing suit, as we were going to relax by the pool for the remainder of the afternoon.  I changed into one of my most daring 2 piece and headed back downstairs.

When he caught sight of me, it distracted him from his phone call.   To distract him further, I handed him some sunscreen lotion and asked him to do my back.     As he was applying it, I untied the string at the back of the neck and asked him to lotion me on the back of my neck.     He knew what I was doing .......teasing him.    I felt the other tie at the back release.  I turned my head and, mockingly, gave him an appalling look.    Holding my top on in front with my forearm, I turned and sat in his lap and squirted some lotion in his free hand and placed it on my upper chest.  

He abruptly said into the phone, "Guys, I have to go.   I'll report on the rest of the trip in the office on Monday."    

After he set his phone down he pulled my arm away, along with my top.

End of story...  Use your imagination from there Mr nosy MSSlave.  

We did make it out to the pool a couple of hours later.

I don't know if this qualifies as a made my day thing but --- the bin has been delivered this morning. The destruction of the kitchen can begin in earnest. Kinda scary if you ask me. A complete gutting and reno of the kitchen. New cabinets, floor, plumbing. The only thing not really being touched is the location of the electrical boxes for the lights on the ceiling (way too much work involved for that).

We are doing the demolition part ourselves and paying others to put everything back together. It will be an interesting 4-6 weeks without a functioning kitchen.


Title: Re: What made your day today?/100 Happy Days
Post by: JBRG on June 25, 2017, 01:11:55 AM
OK. So I got half of the cabinets off the wall yesterday. Had a tile removing machine reserved and was all set to go with kitchen demo. Well, the tile remover that I had reserved was broken. I go home, put on my safety gear and start whacking away with a pry bar and sledge hammer. I got half the tile removed from the kitchen before help showed up at about 11 AM.

Between my wife and a family friend working away at the remaining tile and my brother and I taking down the rest of the cabinets and destroying, we were done is just over an hour.

We still need to scrape the hardened thin-set off the sub floor but I must say that kitchen reno is off to a good start.

In his early 20's, my boyfriend used to detail cars to help pay his way through college.   He now has a job with one of the Big 3 but his love of detailing cars never wore off.

I drove his car to work yesterday and he stayed home and cleaned my car up.  Wash, wax, carpet shampoo, door jams all cleaned.   All the leather and vinyl cleaned and conditioned.   Car mats scrubbed clean.   Wheels are very glossy and tire rims sparkling.    It looks brand new.   I was so excited.   He even opened the hood of the car to show me, and the darn engine looks brand new.

Still a month.  ugh.   Well, at least during the summer, a lot of cooking can be done outside.  Or to get away from the scene, just be outside.     I made the mistake of doing a kitchen remodel in Winter.    I was stuck in the house with plastic hanging between rooms.   My cooking was done on a hotplate.   The refridgerator in the garage. 
I don't like the cold so, just to get out, I'd go walk our nearby mall.   That ended up being expensive.

I know they'll be back, as my neighbors haven't cleared them out yet.  At the moment, I'm getting a good night's sleep.


Edit, one week later: they're BACK again.  Two or three of the little bastards were chewing on my legs last night.  Unfortunately, bed bugs aren't as fastidious as cockroaches are: bed bugs rarely clean themselves.  Even if they walk all over the micro-encapsulated poison that I've laid down, it doesn't do any good until they clean themselves and ingest it.  One of 'em from last night died shortly after it's meal.  Apparently they DO clean on occasion after a blood meal. 
Shit.  I'm back to Whack-A-Mole.

Obviously wasn't me that you were watching. My gut gave me a horrible night of interrupted sleep.


On the bright side, I'm sitting here waiting for the cabinets to be delivered. They need to "acclimate" for a day before the actual installation. Friday morning is the installers clean up and the counter top measurement (quartz). Next Monday is the start of the flooring installation.

A lot of sitting around waiting for stuff to happen then watching it happen.

The job gave me a major boost today.

My company has an award called the Pinnacle Award. The senior executives can only nominate 5 people.

My team was nominated for its performance during our Federal CFPB Audit.

And I was one of the five our exec nominated.

I'm changing employer soon, and I found out today that somebody I currently work with went and found a quiet place for a cry when they found out.

It's an odd thing to be pleased about, but this is one of those places where people normally only tell you if you're doing something wrong, it's a really negative place (that's a big part of why I'm going). It's just nice to know that somebody actually thought I was making a positive difference, and will miss me.

Post by: JBRG on July 21, 2017, 11:25:10 PM
1. the counter plugs --- wired correctly BUT I had forgotten about clipping the tabs on the right side of the plugs. Therefore, they were in a permanent short. Clipped the tabs and the problem went away. In my defence, I've only done counter plugs once before and didn't notice the clipped tabs.

2. the 4 way/3 way switch problem was one of incorrect wiring. I wired the new 4 way switch the exact same way as the original (the wires on the right side were wired to the right side of the new switch -- left side to left side). HOWEVER, the new switch was not wired the same way internally.

So, the schedule for next week is --

1. New flooring installed on Monday
2. Cabinet installation inspected by the vendor on Tuesday
3. Installation of new over-the-range microwave/range hood on Wednesday
4. SFA on Thursday
5. Back to work on Friday
6. Counter tops installed on 4 August.
7. Plumbing and dishwasher reconnected on 9 August (5/6 are weekend, 7/8 I'm working).

Then, it's back to normal.

I've got a kitchen floor again. Replaced the ugly ceramic tile with vinyl tile.

Boy, what a difference in price. Ceramic tile install would have been between $4,500 and $6,000 not including the price of the actual tile. The vinyl tile including installation came in at $1,700. We've got 2 bathrooms, a stairway and small area at the garage entrance that are going to get the same treatment in the future.

I'm much happier without tile.     It's always cold in the winter and I don't like cold.   Against everybody's warnings, I had cork put in my bathroom.    The flooring people were okay with it saying it will be waterproof, but the contractors and even city inspector warned against it.      I love my cork, it's unique and beautiful.   I would actually love it in the rest of the house.

Because it's not the bathroom, I think you would have no issues with cork in other rooms of the house.

What made my day today --- I've got a working microwave again. Brand new, 2 years old, over the range (bought it and it sat in our basement for two years). If we want, we can put the fridge and stove in place and do some proper cooking.

Anyway, at the end they announced the winners of the company Pinnacle Awards.

My name was there, for conceiving, establishing, maintaining, and running our documentation versioning and control program. It's all common sense.

And the cash award is also welcome.

Enjoying watching two humming birds drink from one of the feeders.  They flutter, then dart to the other side then back to the orange tree. Then comes the other one. In about two minutes they will repeat. Based on male birds having the colors, I surmise the one with the red on his head is a he.

Not what you look for on a sex board but they work so hard for so little.

Hummers are great...meaning the birds :facepalm: (Did I just forget this is a sex board.)

I love watching them.  Once in Mexico a wildlife refuge let us in before they opened so I could photograph their Humming Birds.  They had several feeders and there must have been over 100 coming and going.  Some were considered rare too.  As cute as they are to watch, there was some aggressive behavior as they competed for a spot at the feeder.

I'm on the train into London* to collect my youngest  (+MrsBoast) from hospital. He went for a routine appointment on Tuesday, and they kept him in to start treatment for a 10mm kidney stone blocking his ureta.

He needs more drastic intervention, but they're giving him a few days at home while they sort surgical calendars.

On the plus side, he got to spend a lot of time with his girlfriend, who lives down in London.


(*Tip for tourists: never drive further into London than you really have to. Drive as far as the M25 and catch a train or the Tube.)

Went up to our favorite wildlife refuge in Wisconsin early this morning.  The summer doldrums are gradually ending and more birds are coming out into the open after raising young deep in the refuge.  Didn't get any great shots, until...

Driving down the last road, I spotted an adult Bald Eagle in a dead tree several yards off the road.  I stopped a ways before it so the Eagle wouldn't fly away.  Was able to get many good pictures. (500 mm lens a big help there) 
(http://i.imgur.com/ADQUqHo.jpg)

I'd been using the roof of the car to support the camera.  For some reason, I glanced over my shoulder and above me next to the road was a second Eagle watching me!  I started giving him attention and added more good Eagle pictures to the memory card.

temporary subject change to.....What's going to make your WEEKEND?

Getting out of town Friday after work and heading to St Louis.  Checking out all StL has to offer on Saturday and Sunday, including a tour of the Anheuser Busch facilities, zoo, science center, the Arch.   Then on Monday traveling to DeSoto  to get in the dead center of the eclipse shadow path.   

Hoping for a clear sky all day Tuesday

Last day with my heart monitor.  Took off the electrodes and leads for the last time (I hope).

Survived my quadruple by-pass and ablation.  Zipper Club member now, but a hell of a lot better than the alternative.  So fuck you death.  I'm feeling better, enjoying life, and plan to squeeze some more enjoyment out of my days.

I shimmed the receiver, put cork in the barrel groove of the stock. This was from my Ishvesk Mosin Nagant 91/30 PU sniper. The trigger is very smooth and crisp on this, unlike my Tula PU.

100 yards. The zen works for me.

Gus (Basset Hound) and I hit the highway and headed west to walk with our friend Ruby (also Basset Hound)  See my post of July 18th
http://www.kristensboard.com/forums/index.php?topic=28521.msg470903#msg470903

She and her people are staying at an extended stay hotel while their new house is being built.  "Mom" goes back to teaching soon, so we're going to try and go out 3 times a week to give her some company and relief walks.

I was expected at the hotel.  G-Man and I walked in and the lady at the desk said, "Hi you must be Bob."  Gus greeted her and the other lady there then they made me a key card for future visits.  As Gus and I started to head to the room, the woman started to give me their mail to put in the room, then took it back and said, "No, I want to come with you and say hi to Ruby."  As I suspected, she's now Queen of the Hotel!

I know, YOU folks don't think anything about it.  I've been a vegetarian for ages, so it's still a novelty for me.  I did a bulk cook-up this afternoon of some mango & lime baked chicken to keep me going the next couple of weeks.  The pic below is about 6 1/2 pounds (3 kilos) of assorted free-range chicken bits (two sizes of legs and a few breasts).

(http://i.imgur.com/SAC2vLK.jpg)

Of course, life always throws you curve balls.  When I started the marinade yesterday evening, the gallon double-zipper freezer Ziplock bag I was using blew the zipper, liberally spraying me, the counters and cabinet fronts, the oven, and the floor with
6 cloves garlic, peeled
12 oz (340 g) mango peeled, pitted & cubed
¼ cup (60 ml) fresh lime juice (about 2 limes)
¼ cup + 2 tbsp (90 ml) coconut aminos
¼ cup (60 ml) avocado oil
¼ cup (60 ml) spring water
3 tbsp (20 g) minced fresh ginger
2 tbsp (15 ml) fish sauce (Red Boat 40°N 'cos I couldn't find Son)
Zest of 2 limes
and the 6 1/2 pounds of chicken

D'oh!  :facepalm:


Just so you know, 'free range' is NOT the same thing as 'cage free'.  To qualify for 'cage free', all they have to do is open the door of the cage for 5 minutes per day.

Chickens are idiots.

I know a guy who runs a farm, pigs, sheep, chickens, all free-range.  The chickens have a big field to wander in, even a small copse, but they insist on sticking to the few feet beside the barn, or wandering underneath a raised section.



Title: Re: What made your day today?/100 Happy Days
Post by: Lois on August 29, 2017, 05:41:04 PM
I like that my chickens don't go far.  One side of my yard has a fence just 4 feet high, and they don't fly over it although they could.  It  helps that I have a large yard as well.

What I really need now is a goat to munch all the Bermuda grass that has grown since the start of the monsoon.  It is so high I'm losing my cats in it.  Still it is so fun to watch them pouncing around in it and chasing the grasshoppers and lizards.

There are no grasshoppers or lizards in the chicken's area. Chickens are merciless predators.  Fascinating to watch them swallow lizards whole.

I'm about halfway down the street, third person from the left.  Naw, I'm not afrain to post myself online.

Yes, we had a great time.  Got an electric scooter for the wife and the rest of use plowed open a path for her though the crowd.  Saw lots of livestock. (Yes Liz, there were horses. Wife even got to pet a miniature horse.  Only came up to her waist as she sat on her scooter.)

Of course we kept fueled by fair food.  All fried and most of it on a stick.  Of course there were MINI DONUTS!

Now just have to rest my aching feet.  Daughter and her hubby will be here for several more days, so more fun visits in store.

I used to work at Rudy Boschwitz's Milk House, back when he still owned Plywood Minnesota.  He's 87 now, so I doubt he still does that.  I have great memories of the Minnesota State Fair.  Not as big as the State Fair of Texas, but one of the best in America.

She's starting to act like her old self.      She didn't even pick up her iphone until yesterday.

So happy she's feeling better.     She, her sister, and her dad, went to her grandma's for the night.    They'll be back late tomorrow evening.

Tying a certain young inexperienced Russian facedown, and giving her the "Dr. Weismueller" treatment, which involves the disproportionate use of devices and pegging, anal play, and tongue.  I'm rather vocal.  Noisy actually.  So I say things like "Grunt like a pig you filthy whore! Daddy is putting another finger up your ass, you dirty slut!"  I'll probably get out the riding crop and leave some marks also.  I don't get my enjoyment until she's cum four or five times.  Then I can pound her limp body while she sighs.  Don't think I'll go to work today...

Doctor gave me a clean bill of health.  All of my diagnostic work came back normal.  No signs of a-fib or congestive heart failure.  No heart enlargement.  No fluid on heart or lungs.  Echo says good heart strength.  BP, pulse, LDL all normal.  Major relief!!!


Props!

Sex is aerobic exercise, if you can last over 20 minutes.  That would be good for the heart!  Think about tires or football, something to draw the act out. ;D

Saturday I gave a presentation to one of our camera clubs on Sandhill Cranes complete with pictures I've taken over the years.  A couple days before that, I got an Email from Shutterfly (commercial),offering me a free photobook, just had to have it done by Tuesday (tomorrow).  Sat down Sunday afternoon and using my notes and pictures from my talk, I finished the book in just about 3 hours.  Gone all day yesterday, so did the final proofread today and got the order off!  The regular price of nearly $40, is now just $16 with shipping and tax!  I opted for a large size book than the free one.  Now just waiting for it to arrive. :D

End result (bad pun) of having a webcam on a garden hose jammed up my butt:  the 4 small polyps he found were all benign, so clean bill of health and "keep doing what you're doing!"  :D

I don't have to have a repeat performance until I'm nearly 70.

12 years seems like a long gap.  I'm on an every 5 year schedule.  I think I've heard that's what's recommended...but then I'm over 70 so don't go by what I think I heard. :facepalm:

They do give me good drugs and I sleep through the whole thing.  Yea VA nurses!

My current relationship that I am in has been very good.    Well, something big happened today.    Please make sure you're sitting down before you read any further.

I'm excited to announce that today, my boyfriend and I decided to put our cell phones and his daughters cell phones on the same family plan with AT&T.     I know, I know, it's not a ring, but it's close, right?   ;)

You would think after something big like that, he wouldn't be spending the evening watching the MSU-ND football game at a friends house.

In this day and age Julie, that's huge.  So happy for you and glad things are going so well.  As for tonight well...he's a guy and it's football. :emot_laughing:

Your story is so better than mine.
We'd been living together for a bit over a year, when the Minneapolis City Council started talking about allowing health coverage for "partners". (this was about 30 years ago) I was ready to leave for work when now wife brought this up and said if the city did that, her company would also offer that and would I be interested?
As I went out the door, I said it'd be easier to just get married, and off I went.

So you see, much more romance with cell phone plans. :emot_laughing:
Anyway congrats on the new cellular relationship.

hahaha.  Well, he used to put ketchup on his scrambled eggs.  He loves me so much, that when he found out it grossed me out, he stopped doing it.   This really shows how much he cares about me.   ;)  hahaha     And no, I didn't request him to stop.  Ketchup only comes out when we're having hamburgers or fries at the restaurant.

I just got a text, "State is getting slaughtered. It's bad.  Not as bad as the beer...Natural Light, that's all he has.  I thought it was a joke."      

As for our 'sharing the cell phone plan' post, I was joking about it being a big commitment, though I was teasing him in the ATT store.   A couple of the store employees joined in on the fun and came over to congratulate him on this big step in our relationship.

Anyway congrats on the new cellular relationship.

Thank you MS. :emot_laughing:

Off on a short road trip today.  Taking the Basset to the dog park, then hitting the highway heading north.  Going to Ely, MN...top of the state.  Only a stones throw from Canada, just no road.  You can get there, but only by canoe.  Google BWCA if you want more info.

Be back sometime Monday evening.  Going to see bears and wolves...maybe even a moose or two.  Full report when I get back.

I'll miss you guy...unless there's coverage up there. :D

Just got back from our "up north" trip.  Went to the top of the state, Ely, MN.  On the way we stopped at an old iron mine, now a state park.  Went nearly a half mile into the earth and road a tram another quarter mile to the last spot they were mining.  Closed in the early 60s and the steel company donated the mine to the state a few years later.

In Ely, we visited the International Wolf Center and saw a couple of the wolves they have there.  Then to the other side of town to the North American Bear Center.  They put on a good show, as we watch a bear climb up a tree for his food.  I got video!

Glad to be back to KB.  Did anyone start to like Trump while I was gone?  Just wonder'n.

The mining company donating the mine to the state sounds like the same sort of thing that the Hearst family did with San Simeon. They donated the "Hearst Castle" and an area for a visitor centre/parking lot to the State of California rather than continuing to pay for the upkeep of the property. The family kept all of the surrounding land because land isn't expensive to keep up.

They are so funny.   The really funny thing is 2 of them went to our security video and watched the footage of when he got out of the van and came in the front door.  Then back out again.     Oh, to be in my early 20's again.   SHOOT, that's half a life time ago.

So it was yesterday, but got back late last night. (For old people that's after 8:30 PM)
Our Minneapolis photo club made a group trip to our favorite wildlife refuge in Wisconsin.  The Sandhill Cranes are gathering now, prior to their migration in November.  There's several thousand now with the number rising to 14 - 15,000.   

Being familiar with the refuge, we led the caravan (5 cars) to the best spot to watch as the cranes returned to the refuge after feeding in the surrounding farm fields.  Soon a few small flocks came in and before we knew it, the skies were filled with Sandhill Cranes.  They stay in close communication, so the cries of their calls filled the air too.

Was happy to share our favorite wildlife spot with the member of our Minneapolis group.

<fingers crossed>  The first Italian sausage & pepperoni pizza I've had in over a decade is just about to come out of the oven.  It smells like heaven...  ;D

For those of you that don't know me, I've been an organic vegetarian for a LONG time.
 Now I'm on the AutoImmune Protocol diet (AIP), which restricts damned near EVERYTHING.  It's been amusing researching how to make a pizza that I can EAT.  I'm past the initial stage of the diet so I've recently added nuts and eggs back in, as I know nobody in my family ever had issues with them.

So, Italian sausage, pepperoni, scallions, artichoke hearts, Kalmati olives, Crimini mushrooms, and Vegan cheddar & mozzarella cheese on a grain-free crust embedded with Italian spices, liberally coated with olive oil & rosemary.  I fucked severely with the recipe, so this is a first-time try at it.  It looks and smells great.

Edit: SUCCESS on the first try!  :emot_cheerlead:  The first shot is the Chicago-style crust after it's come out of 20 minutes of 425F (you have to pre-cook these gluten-free pizza crusts), and the second shot needs no introduction.  :D

(https://i.imgur.com/8v42ovs.jpg)

The only thing I'd do differently: about half as much artichoke, as it almost overpowers the sausage & pepperoni.

Rope has some serious dietary issues, but try Boboli pizza crust.  Just brush it with oil, then lay your sauce, cheese, and topping on.  My kids don't like delivery any more.  "Your pizza is better."

I baked bread yesterday for the first time since my heart troubles.  A dark Russian rye for my favorite Russian.  The kids interrupted me several times, and I had to make a couple of substitutions for ingredients, but when I pulled those puppies out of the oven, it was the best fucking bread I have ever baked!  Crunchy, seedy, almost sweet crust.  Fragrant soft interior.  Not too dense.  Wow.  I wonder if I will ever be able to replicate it.

Recipe please!

Dark Russian Rye Bread

Ingredients

2 packets of active dry yeast (¼ oz each containing 1½ TB for a total of 3 TB)
2½ cups warm water (about 105 - 115°F), divided
½ cup dark molasses (not blackstrap)
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
¼ cup butter
1 oz unsweetened chocolate
½ cup whole wheat flour
3 cups rye flour
3 cups unbleached bread flour plus 1 TB, divided
1 cup wheat bran
2 TB caraway seeds, plus 1 optional teaspoon, divided
½ tsp fennel seeds
1 TB instant espresso powder
1 TB minced shallots
¼ cup cornmeal

Directions

In a small saucepan, over low heat, combine 1 cup of water, molasses, apple cider vinegar, butter and chocolate, stirring often. Once the butter and chocolate have melted, add bran and use mixing wand to chop to coarse texture.  Allow to cool to room temperature.

In a small bowl combine yeast, sugar and 1 1/2 cup of warm (not hot) water. Let stand at room temperature for about 10 minutes. During this time it should get foamy.

In a large bowl whisk together the whole wheat flour, rye flour and 2 cups of white bread flour. Set aside.

In a large bowl for your stand mixer, fitted with a bread hook attachment, combine the flours (except for last cup of white), caraway seeds, fennel seeds, salt, espresso powder and shallots. Turn the mixer on low. Add in the yeast mixture and the chocolate mixture. Mix until smooth and then turn the mixer up to medium speed and continue mixing for 3 minutes. Turn the mixer speed down to low. Add 1/4 cup of the remaining white flour at a time, just until the dough clears the sides of the bowl and begins to work its way up the paddle. This is a very sticky yet firm dough. Be careful not to add too much flour. When pressed, the dough will spring back. You might not use all of the remaining flour.

Place the dough onto a well floured surface and knead by hand until you have a smooth and springy, yet dense dough. *if you prefer, add the dough hook to your mixer and knead over low speed for 2 or 3 minutes and then finish by hand with a few kneads. Form your rich dark brown dough into a ball and place it into a large greased bowl, turning once to cover the dough with oil. Cover with plastic and let rise until *doubled*...about 1 1/2 to 2 hours (doubled is more important than time... I've had dough double in 40 minutes before). Towards the end of the rising time, combine the cornflour, remaining TB of all purpose flour, the optional tsp of caraway seeds and set aside. Preheat your oven to 350° F. When your dough is ready, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Sprinkle the cornmeal mixture over the parchment paper. Gently deflate the dough and turn it out onto a floured surface. Divide the dough in half. Form each half into balls by pulling the edges down and around to the bottom of the ball and pinching to form a seam. Place each ball onto the prepared baking sheet, seam side down.
   
Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rise until almost doubled in size and puffy....about 45 minutes to an hour (again, the key word is *doubled*). I do a two finger test by pressing 2 damp fingers into the dough a little. If the indent springs back right away, the dough is not yet ready. If it springs back very slowly...they're good to go. With a serrated knife, slash an X in the top of each ball, about 1/4" deep.

Bake the loaves for about 45 - 50 minutes, until they are crusty and sound hollow inside or your instant thermometer reads 200 - 210°F (temperature is key here... do not let loaf overbake.  Remove when you hit your temperature). Allow to cool completely on a cooling rack before slicing (coarse bread with start to fall apart under knife if you do not allow it to cool). Because the loaves start out to be so dark, you will not be able to easily notice them browning while they're baking.

Note:  I like to use an egg wash on the loaves before they go into the oven.  Sprinkle with additional seeds, caraway, fennel, poppy, sesame... the crust is almost as good as the bread!

I couldn't sleep.   Too much on my mind.   Just watched the Astros win the World Series and I am so happy because Justin Verlander was my favorite Detroit Tiger before they traded him to Houston earlier this year.  I love him and am sure if we ever met he'd fall for me and we'd fall in love together and get married.   We'd have two children, a girl and a boy.  The boy we would name Justin, and the girl we would name Katharine.  And we'd live happily ever after.

Nothing so simple.  My wife has had her operation, suffered after effects of nausea but I will be able to bring her home today. Its going to be a long and steady recovery but she'll eventually be free of all the pain she's suffered both pre and post operation.

Kate is going to get all that baby batter in Italy.  More than once. Justin probably won't rest between fucks, and will leave her sore and squishy, with little bite marks on her breasts and ear lobes...  sorry.   :'(

I almost forgot one of my favorite experiences last week while I was absent from here.

A week ago Tuesday, I went to see the touring production of LOVE NEVER DIES composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber.   It is the sequel to Phantom of the Opera.   But I don't think you need to have seen Phantom to see this.
Not to give too much away, it is set 10 years after 'Phantom'.   The phantom has left France and arrives in NY on Coney Island and has his own production there.  He lures Christine to perform in his show.
I was mesmerized.  The music was wonderful and I was crying at the end.  

The only downer for me is that, unfortunately, my boyfriend had to be out of town and the person I took with me doesn't appreciate the theater and just "doesn't get" what I see in musicals.   I guess I should have taken her to the movie theater for the latest Transformer movie showing.

I had a thought. I had the love for someone well up in me after seeing a picture. It was one of those soft wonderful feelings that made me feel whole and just happy.

To get a short break from an out of town in-law that is staying at our house, my boyfriend and I went to a downtown Detroit casino hotel for some fun.    I won $270 dollars playing blackjack, he won $210 playing craps.   That paid for our hotel room and our couples massage.   After a wonderful hour long massage we enjoyed our time in our candlelit room looking out over the city lights.  

The only bummer was we had to be back home early because he was taking his youngest daughter to a softball camp/college visit today.
