A couple of friends (are they friends if you pay for them to hang out with you?) have informed me that I haven’t been attending this blogishness, so I’ve been really, really, REALLY bad about keeping this thing updated . I’ve been busy… I think. We’ll go with that. But, I have drank a lot … More Alright, I get it.
So, the lady and I have a pontoon boat. We bought it last year. It was in someone’s yard along the highway. It was cheap, it floated, and the engine mostly worked. It had an issue with shifting in to gear. I think I know what the problem was, but it’s a moot point now. … More You get what you pay for
I’m still here! Crap people, give me a break. I just crawled out from underneath the ruins of an ancient Mayan temple. Those natives are feisty! Don’t EVER take directions from a guy with an eye patch just because he’s the only person speaking English. Despite what movies like Turistas will try to impress upon … More Still here!
I don’t know what particular component of the two is so outstanding: the biscuit or the gravy, but the combination of the two is nothing short of fantastic. That warm flaky tasty bomb of a biscuit drowning in spicy gray matter of grease and pork. Mmm MMM! It is with that inspiration that I bring … More Gravy = Fuel
I woke up late yesterday. It was just one of those mornings. Ladyfriend has class in the evening, so we don’t carpool. Time to bike. If I was smart, I would pack my clothes and food at night instead of scrambling in the morning. But I’m not smart like that. I’m never sure if I’ve … More Sleeping in
Ugh… Have you ever watched a documentary or read about something that completely depressed you? The Lady and I watched National Geographic’s Strange Days on Planet Earth Dangerous Catch; Dirty Secrets. It covered a few unsavory topics: over fishing, fresh water contamination, and the trash island between California and Hawai’i. I have heard of this … More Trash Island
My ride home last night was mostly average, the morning’s tailwind became the afternoon’s headwind, and the average descent became the ascent. However, I did come across a notable discovery: a difference between Johnson county and Jackson county. In Johnson county when someone almost runs you over, they apologize. In Jackson county, they usually ignore … More Look both ways…
For some reason, this goes well with the Soul Train that we were watching this morning. My brother alerted me to this: “You may have heard about this singing ensemble already. It is a group of aged 75+ people that sing rock tunes in the Boston area. They take this seriously and their goal is … More Young @ Heart
So, as could be expected, I waited until the last weekend of March to get my camping trip in. I was really hoping it would warm up and stay above 40F over night. That wasn’t quite the case, but it was bearable. I started planning on Wednesday for my over-nighter on Friday. I made a … More TWC – March
What happened to April?! I am struggling to find a time to go camping this month. I have weddings the last two weekends of this month, and I am on-call this weekend. And what’s with people getting married this spring? I have four weddings in the next five weekends! I think I’m going to try … More April, where have you gone?
