Deck Envy

Well another week, another blog.

This week went by pretty fast. Before I knew it, it was the weekend. Work was work. I helped D$ finish up his deck after work one day. The deck is nice. Really NICE. I have total deck envy. Now I just need to convince the wife we “need” a deck too. It’ll take some work on my end but I’m sure she’ll come around. It might take a few months to get her to say “oh, okay” and then another year or so to actually build it but I need to think long term. I need to plant the seed now and love it, squeeze it, and call it George (sorry, old Looney Tunes reference there). Next thing you know, I’ll have my deck, custom cover, and BBQ man-station all ready for entertaining.
This weekend was Maple Valley Days. A small “fair” of sorts. It was my first time. It wasn’t bad but I was bummed there was no car show. Maybe next year. The junk food was a nice treat.

Okay, well I’ve spent my allotted “blog” time, I should get back to work. Later peeps.

Blog 2: Electric Boogaloo

Well my first week with a blog was just a typical normal week. Wake up on Monday, drive to work; work (mostly meetings), lunch, more work (meetings), ride the Connector home, spend time with the family; eat, shower, sleep; and then do it over and over until Friday.
The weekend was nice. The weather was beautiful on Saturday. I played paintball with most of the neighborhood regulars. We had a blast. We found a new location to play and enjoyed the heck out of it. We knocked out a huge portion of a new deck at D$'s casa too.
Well, sorry the week was so slow, nothing really super interesting to report. Until next time. Chat at you later peeps.

My First Blog

Well, here it is. My first blog. I was inspired by my neighbor who has the most awesome blog ever. I saw my wife had commented on her blog, so I clicked on it from Facebook and started reading. Before I knew what was happening, I was reading all her blogs. Some made me smile, some made me laugh, and one made me tear up (ok, I cried just a little). I was so impressed with her stories about her family, life, and every day events; I decided to create a blog of my own.

I'll try and blog as often as I can (I might even take a pointer from her and blog once a week. Thank God for S+) be fun to look back and read about things from long ago and so on and so on.

So bare with me as I take this new journey. I can't promise all my stories will be G-rated but I'll keep them as PG as I can. I don't want to be the potty-mouthed grandpa my grandkids read about thinking " Who was this crazy old man dropping the F-bomb all the time?"

Here goes nothing.....
