Get Out the Blankets and Jackets

by on Wednesday, September 26th, 2012

Holy crap this weather sure turned ugly fast. One day its 90 degrees out and the air conditioner is cranking its heart out. The next day it’s 40 degrees and I’m thinking about turning on the fucking heat.

Most days I don’t even think of a jacket as I head out the door. This morning, that was a big mistake. I thought that the little bit of time I was outside between my front door and the truck door would not be a big deal even it is was a bit nipply. But damn – the chill stayed with me the entire way to work. I am still cold.

Watch me end up getting sick from this fucking weather change. It seems to me that every time we switch from summer to fall the people around here start getting sick with the flu and strep throat. I hate being around sick people – it makes me paranoid as hell. People who are sick need to stay the fuck at home and not be spreading the germs around to the rest of us. Especially the people who work at schools and day care centers, bus drivers, and fast food workers. Keep your germs at home people – I don’t have time for getting sick like you losers.

BBQ time

by on Tuesday, April 10th, 2012

I love that the weather has gotten so nice. BBQ season has come early this year and I am preparing for it as we speak. I have already filled the tanks for the grill and bought new cooking utensils for it as well. I dug out the smoker and cleaned it up. I have to pick up some wood chips for it, but that is easy. We are fixing up our patio and the backyard areas where we entertain and due to such good weather it will be blooming soon enough with flowers everywhere.

We will probably plan our first BBQ for next weekend. My wife has shopping to do as well as check everyone’s schedules to make sure they can attend. I am sure that it wont be a problem though, because everyone is ready for winter to be gone for good and the outdoor fun to begin. It is still just a bit too cool at night to bother with the pool yet. When the weather gets to the right point, we will open up the pool and ready it for summer. We haven’t decided if we want new patio furniture yet or not. I suppose we shall see. I am sure that my wife will come across something she likes soon enough.

For My Friend Who Is A Redsox Fan

I regret to admit that I have a friend who is a Red Sox fan. She and I have a lot of smack talk going on all summer long. So I thought this would make her smile, even though it is so VERY WRONG!

Nothing on TV

by on Wednesday, June 24th, 2009

The one thing besides the heat that I dislike about the summer season is the fact there is nothing on TV at all to watch, I am not interested in watching reruns and most of the new shows that show up in the summer time really suck. The one notable exception is Big Brother which will be starting a new season in a couple of weeks, the first week in July the new season starts and that will be one show that I will watch and enjoy, at least I have enjoyed it every summer since it first came on the scene. I can not wait for the first drama to start.

Baseball trip

by on Tuesday, June 16th, 2009

We have put together our annual baseball trip for this year. We will be going to four cities and seeing eight teams play. Our trip this year will be from St Louis to Kansas City then on to Denver and end up in Phoenix. After our six days of fun in the sun then we will fly back home to go back to work for another year. Then we will do it again. This will be the fourth year we have done this summer fun trip and I for one can not wait to be at the park eating a hot dog and drinking a beer, this year will be a lot of fun for sure.
