Cool off in front of the oven

Summer weather is here.

Yesterday, I was gonna cut the grass, but when I walked outside at noon to get busy..........the grass didn't seem so long anymore. Even with all our trees, it seemed like it was 90 degrees with 900% humidity.

When I got to work last night, our store had suffered a power surge and the air conditioning wasn't working properly. I stood in front of the ovens a couple times to dry the sweat off. Sounds crazy but it works. I can take the heat just fine, it's the humidity that puts me in a foul mood.

Today's science break. .......more news about diabetes. A very good friend of mine is in the process of losing his toes, makes you really think about what a nasty disease it is. My buddy is finding out the hard way.

It's not a real ship.

I'm guilty of this. I've never downloaded any American TV shows, I do download stuff from the BBC and a few WRC races. They have some good TV programming in Europe.

Good article about the basics in photography. I like taking pictures, I'm sure glad I have a digital camera, because I'd burn through a lot of money buying film if I had to pay for each shot I take- I'm not that good yet. For every 100 shots I take, maybe 2 or 3 are keepers. Here's some advanced stuff. It's amazing what can be done to a digital image.

Never drink Pepsi and eat a bunch of Mento mints at the same time.

Robbers picks the wrong guy to rob. If I were a robber, getting the shotgun I was using kicked out of my hands might be a good indication that I should choose another victim. No one said criminals were intelligent.

Don't get me wrong, I like Starbucks coffee, but 4 or 5 bucks is a bit much for me to pay for a cup of fancy coffee on a regular basis. I still think their names for the different sizes of drinks are stupid. What's wrong with "Small", "Medium" and "Large"????

She said she had to overcome shyness to become a singer? Uh, yeah....I kinda have a hard time believing that. I thought her 15 minutes of fame were up already.

I shoulda been a plumber. A million bucks would buy me a lot of nice bicycles.

God, just give me sign you hear me.

F**K the movie. NSFW link. I watched the trailer and besides the obvious use of the word F**k every 5 seconds, it looks like a really interesting documentary.

I'm always the asshole at the meeting that asks what exactly a “inverted blade-center uptime matrix is......I don't know if that means I'm smart or not, but I know bullshit when I see or hear it. If a business concept or product is good stuff, you don't need to explain it.... it explains itself. If someone asks you what time it is, don't tell them how to build a clock.

I knew there was a reason I like to ride. Actually, there's way more then just one reason.........and I don't have to feel bad about not having 6 pack abs.

Till later.

No fish.........

We rented a boat Monday to see if we could catch some fish............

Didn't have much luck catching anything and neither one of us can row a boat to save our lives. I did have one bite where the bobber I was using went underwater for a good 5 seconds but the fish ate the bait and took off.

The lake where we were at doesn't permit gasoline powered boats since it is our drinking water reservoir, but some guy had an electric boat that I swear you could have skied behind. I want one of them.

Dan took this picture of a duck that wanted our worms, that was the closest we came to any wildlife.........

For some reason, this seems pornographic to me. (Nothing to do with porno-just seems so over the top-it should be)I like grilled meat, seafood and such but man, that's a lot of money. I guess people say that about people that have 5 bikes too. You have to register at the NY Times to read the article, sorry.

One helluva way to leave a 5 dollar tip.

Lord knows, I love mine. I just got a new Nano and I gave my old one to our daughter and I'm pretty sure she like it as well. She had an older MP3 player that only held 256 megs and the Nano I gave her holds 2 gigs.

A third of adults with the disease don't even know they have it. That's the scary part.

This is funny....Pumpcast News.

These guys have a podcast. They are hackers. The information that people voluntarily give up on the phone to people they don't know is amazing. Our car insurance company called me up last year and wanted me to confirm my account info over the phone. I had their number on caller ID (Caller ID info can be spoofed) but I still refused to give them any info until they gave me the information and I confirmed it. Don't be stupid with your personal info.

Dumb TV shows...

I don't watch a whole lot of TV but I do have a few favorites........some of my favorites would be considered "dumb TV" I suppose. For example, I like watching Monster Garage. Not much redeeming value there, but hey-I like it, so I watch it.

Here are some really dumb TV show I saw listed in the online TV guide....

-World's Best Bathrooms-Bathrooms in some of the world's most popular cities. This is an hour show? I like a nice bathroom as much as the next guy, but lets face it-nobody spends any more time then necessary in one.

Trading Spaces. I've actually seen this one. Two family's change houses and each one redecorates a room in the other's house. Unfortunately, the show I saw, one of the decorators rummaged through the attic of one family's house and found some heirloom glassware and painted it. The other family was not amused. Why someone would let another family into their house to redecorated a room with reject decorators escapes me. My idea of redecorating a room is to go to Circuit City and buy 10 grand worth of electronics. Done.

Dog The Bounty Hunter-Seen this one as well. Some old guy with a bleached blonde wife has a bail bond business in Hawaii. They all seem nice in a trailer trash kind of way, but the show is pretty much the same every week-stake out some bail jumpers and take them to jail. The only part I don't understand is how you hide and stake anything out when you wear 20 pounds of S&M gear and most of your family comes along to help dressed the same way.

Any of those TV shopping shows. Especially if you are buying jewelry.

Hot Trends-Spring Cleaning ideas Saw this listing on the Home and garden channel. My idea of spring cleaning is to move the Lazy Boy and vacuum up all the pretzels from Super Bowl.

Deal Or No Deal- This show seems to be on every night on NBC. I like it when they get up to 200,000 bucks and say "NO DEAL HOWIE" 200,000 bucks? Are you freakin' kidding me? Take the money. Yeah, I've watched this one too.

Any of those Hollywood news shows. None of those stars or celebrities would give those reporters the time of day if they didn't have a movie or a TV show to pimp.

Extreme Makeover. I like the concept, but you just know some of those families are just gonna trash the house after a year or so.

Any wrestling show. Grown men wearing pink spandex? I don't think so.

World's Wildest Police Videos. I used to watch this one. It's a half hour of televised police chases with dubbed in sound effects. You can't outrun a police radio. I learned that from the host, John Brunnel-he says it about every 10 minutes during every episode.........................

...................Had a great ride Sunday afternoon, again I forgot to bring a camera. Too bad because I would have gotten a great shot of a snake eating a frog. Must be extremely dry, my allergies were killing me about an hour after the ride. That's my excuse for losing when I got sucked into a basketball game with my son and he cleaned my clock 10-0 right after riding.

Till later.

These are some incredible pictures........I think I woulda needed a change of underwear after getting so close to some of those storms.

I've almost been hit by lightning twice.....I don't wanna be three times lucky.

Whenever I am out on the mountain bike and I hear any thunder......I immediately head for my van to pack up. If I'm out on the road bike-I find someplace to wait the storm out.

I know I've blogged about this before, but folks, when you got out in public-look in a mirror before you leave the house. I saw some lady at work last night that made my night. She was 10 pounds of potatoes stuffed into a 5 pack sack. Nothing wrong at all about being a little heavy (shit happens) but for God's sake-go buy some clothes that fit. Nothing says "I don't give a shit" like wearing a tank top and spandex shorts that are both at least 3 sizes to small. As an added bonus, the spandex shorts were white and she didn't have any underwear on......you could tell.

I'm glad the baby was born healthy, but if I hear the term Brangelina one more time, I'm gonna projectile vomit.

Pennsylvania is #42 on the list. I'm not surprised. We have some seriously shitty drivers.

I like the way this article is written. It's like the quality of the raft had anything to do with the fact that 3 dumbasses got drunk and nearly drowned.

"Your cell phone makes you twice as annoying." Good one.

I bet they said "Hey guys, watch this" right before they got their hands blowed off.

Never got out on the bike Saturday afternoon, woke up with one of those sinus headaches where you think your eyeballs are gonna pop out of your head from the pressure. My riding buddy was extremely understanding and we are gonna hit it later today. I'm stoked and also somewhat stupid-I'm breaking out the SS for the first time in a few months. Had the geared hardtail already to go and changed my mind last night.....

Get the icebags ready for my knees........

That was a long week...

I must be getting old, the lack of ventilation at where I work and some of that famous Central PA early season humidity has been seriously kicking my ass this week. Usually the heat doesn't bother me one bit but it's been killing me so far.

I've always said that you meet the nicest folks on a bike but you also meet a few squirrels and nutjobs to. I know this guy from riding with him a few times and he does his regular shopping where I work.

He's a nice enough guy, I don't think his elevator goes to all the floors but I'm okay with that............... what I'm not okay with is the fact that the guy wants to talk for hours on end. Seriously. I let the guy talk until I get the shits of listening to him and excuse myself to go to the bathroom or something. I try not to be too rude but sometimes I think he gets the hint......

Is this some strange stuff or what? 200 journalists are in Nambia following this? Do something constructive for God's sake.

I'm so glad this dude is a role model for today's kids. I don't remember too many recording artists of the 70's and 80's getting shot or being in jail for failing to pay child support.

Whether you're a pet lover or not, the owner of this dog oughta have to live on beer and donuts. Wait a minute, he probably already does.

This kind of stuff makes me sad. Mostly because it happens every day.

Holy crap. I don't even like Britney Spears and I think they oughta leave her the hell alone.

All I can say about this is I hope they die in jail. They screwed thousands of people out of their retirement. It's the least those 2 bastards can do.

Best thing about this week is that's it's over for the most part. Got in an early breakfast with my pop this morning, going for a mtb ride later today and fishing on Monday.

It's hard to believe summer is here already. Woo hooooo :-)

If this was my barn, I'd be pissed. Who the hell cares about Jimmy Hoffa? What, he's been dead for over 30 years....what are they gonna do? Give him a proper burial if they find him????

A whole bunch of nothing..........

Things are kinda boring around here...........

This almost makes me want to get a new PC before Vista comes out. The one I am typing on is less then 3 years old but I'm betting it will take a good year before they get Vista's bugs ironed out. You can read more about here and here. My computer is able to run it but since all I do is browse the web and download podcasts on it, I don't really feel the need to upgrade it.

President Bush makes people do spit-takes.

More of our tax money goes to waste. What are they gonna do when they find the guy? Interview him? I can't imagine their is going to be a whole lot left of him by now.......

I don't feel any safer. That's a lot of people. If I am reading the article right, almost 1% of everyone that lives in America is behind bars.

Another trojan to look out for if you use Windows Word.

My mom made a comment on my last post about my son and I fishing and how hysterical it must be.

It is fairly comical.

Between me and Daniel getting our lines caught in overhanging trees or submerged logs-it's a rare occurance when both of us actually have a line in the water. I'm usually off to the side fixing something or other while Dan is fishing. Doesn't really matter.....we have a ton of fun just hanging out and getting on each others nerves.

I think for our next fishing trip, we're going to rent a rowboat and go out to the middle of Lake Redman and do some fishing. I figure that will eliminate the tangles from overhanging trees when we cast and most of the submerged stuff we get our lines caught on. And it will be good exercise.

Gonna be seeing this movie when it comes out. Cars, explosions, crashes......who needs a plot?

Next Sunday is Manhattanhenge.

Political correctness has run amok.

I'd say this chap can fly a plane pretty darn good

Only two words came to mind when I read this article..........LET GO!!!!

I love it when shit like this happens.

Storms might hit the coasts of America this summer? No kidding, ya think Pat?

Speed limit for bicyclists. Tell those peds to get the hell outta the way.

A quick joke.........

A company, feeling it was time for a shake-up, hires a new CEO. This new boss is determined to rid the company of all slackers. On a tour of the facilities, the CEO notices a guy leaning on a wall. The room is full of workers and he wants to let them know he means business!

The CEO walks up to the guy and asks, "And how much money do you make a week?"

A little surprised, the young fellow looks at him and replies, "I make $300.00 a week. Why?"

The CEO then hands the guy $1,200 in cash and screams, "Here's four weeks pay, now GET OUT and don't come back!"

Feeling pretty good about his first firing, the CEO looks around the room and asks, "Does anyone want to tell me what that goof-off did here?"

With a sheepish grin, one of the other workers mutters, "Pizza delivery guy from Domino's.

Today is fishing day. My son and I are gonna hook up with some monster fish down at Lake Redman this morning, we'll have pictures up next post. Okay, maybe not huge fish, I'll be happy if I catch anything to be honest............I'll also be posting some pictures of our daughters last day of school, she and her classmates autopsied cats. Yum. I'll make sure I post a link.

Wow dude,pass me the floor glue........

The remodel on our store is going agonizingly slow. My favorite workers are the two 50 year old stoner hippies doing all the tile and linoleum work. I think they spend more time smoking cigarettes (I think), measuring stuff and snapping blue chalk lines all over the place then they do anything else.

Maybe they've sniffed too much floor glue or something, but they work slow.

When I was a kid (late teens-early twenties) a friend of mine owned an arcade full of games like this and I used to get to play all the games for free. Brings back some memories........

Sure sounds like a fancy car. I'd hate to have to get anything repaired on it. I'd have to be filthy sticking rich to even think about owning a car that cost 30,000 dollars more then our first house.

Jon Stewart on George Bush.

Corny joke time.........

A pickup with three guys in it pulls into the lumber yard. One of the men gets out and goes into the office.

"I need some four-by-two's," he says.

"You must mean two-by-four's" replies the clerk.

The man scratches his head. "Wait a minute," he says, "I'll go check."

Back, after an animated conversation with the other occupants of the truck, he reassures the clerk, that, yes, in fact, two-by-fours would be acceptable.

"OK," says the clerk, writing it down, "how long you want 'em?"

The guy gets the blank look again. "Uh... I guess I better go check," he says.

He goes back out to the truck, and there's another animated conversation. The guy comes back into the office. "A long time," he says, "we're building a house".

Get it? Yeah, that's what I thought.......hey, I liked it.

Karl Rove is a dipshit.

Karl is a dipshit.

I don't approve of or like George Bush.

And Karl needs to pop his head out of his ass soon because it looks like he's about to be indicted.

I watched a couple minutes of the President's speech concerning immigration, here's a solution........grant anyone that wants to move here from Mexico automatic citizenship provided that they sign up for 2 years of active duty in the armed forces or the Peace Corps. All the other crap he is coming up with isn't going to work.

June 6th is National Day of Slayer. Yeah, I know it's on 6/6/06. I also know my mom reads this, I'm sure she'll be proud of her 46 year old son, even if he does like to listen to speed metal once and awhile. Don't worry, I ignore all the Satanic references-I just like the music.

Tasteless joke time........

When Jesus was put on the cross he looked down and he calls to peter, and peter tries to approach.

But the roman guards prevent him with violence, they blacken his eye and scuff him up pretty good

Jesus calls him again "Peter.." and peter cries "I'm coming lord!", and throws himself at the guards who beat him roughly and break his arm at which point he whimpers off.

Again Jesus calls to him, "Peter.." Peter yells to Christ "I'm coming!" , then throws himself at the guards again.

Putting up a vicious struggle, but not laying a hand of violence on the guards.

Finally they consent and let him pass.. and peter.. his broken arm.. badly badly bruised and slashed makes it before Jesus and kneels and says "I am here father what is it that you want of me?".

Jesus: "Peter, I can see your house from here."

I sure hope Jesus has a sense of humor or I'm not gonna be needing a jacket when I die.

I wish we had a ride like this here in PA. It would probably have to go north-south instead of east-west due to the length of the state but still.......

I am thinking about trading in my current cellphone for one that has a camera included. Nothing real fancy, I just want the ability to take random pictures. Nothing like this monstronsity.

Lit up like a disco...........

I uploaded a video of the rear of my Surly commuter with all the rear lights on. It's taken with a 4 year old digital camera so it's kinda crappy but you'll get an idea what motorists see.

Sorta looks like a traveling disco, but if I get creamed on the way to work this summer.........I want the cop to say to whoever runs me over "How the HELL do you NOT see this guy?"

I have 3 lights on the front as well, it is DARK at 4:30 AM on the way home from work, the roads I take have no street lights, so every little bit of light helps. It looks way ghetto but I really don't care.

I also have a ton of reflective tape on the bike as well-I'll try to get a picture of that up as well, it really stands out.

This following site might be a touch radical for some folks, but if you don't like what the current Administration is doing, check it out. If you're happy with the way things are going in this country-go ahead and stick your head back into the sand.

My son and I watched a couple movies yesterday, hit the links for a rousing game of mini golf, had some awesome burgers and saw some friends at the LBS.

Some guy was in there with a BSO that wanted some repairs done to it, the owner of the shop quoted him a price that was more then the original price of the bike. Wal-Mart bikes have there place in this world but if you are at all serious about riding-go to your LBS and spend the extra money for a bike. You get what you pay for.

Some links...........

The jury did the right thing. This guy got what he deserves and nothing more.

This is going to be interesting. The company I work for is in direct competition with them and we are doing the same thing in all our stores as well.

Here's some info about why you don't see big trees in most of suburbia. We are lucky, when our house was built back in the 70's it was built in a heavily wooded area and they left most of the big trees unscathed on our street. Unfortunately, a few of our neighbors have cut down some of the big ones, that's too bad..I like trees.

A Jewish man is walking on the beach when he discovers a bottle containing genie. He rubs it and a genie comes out, promises to grant him one wish. He says, "Peace in the Middle East, that's my wish." The genie looks concerned, then says, "No, I'm sorry, that's just not possible. Some things just can't be changed. Do you have another wish?" The guys says, "Well, for my whole life I've never received oral sex from my wife. That would be my wish." The genie pauses for another moment and then says, "How would you define peace?"

Frank was excited about his new rifle, and decided to try bear hunting.

He spotted a small brown bear and shot it.

There was then a tap on his shoulder, and he turned around to see a big black bear.

The black bear said, "That was my cousin, and you have got two choices.

Either I maul you to death or we have sex."

After considering briefly Frank decided to accede to the latter alternative.

Even though he felt sore for two weeks, Frank soon recovered and vowed revenge.

He headed out on another trip where he found the black bear and shot it.

There was another tap on his shoulder. This time a huge grizzly bear stood right next to him.

The grizzly said, "That was a huge mistake, Frank. That was my cousin and you have got two choices. Either I maul you to death or we have rough sex."

Again, Frank thought it was better to cooperate.

Although he survived it would take several months before Frank finally recovered.

Outraged he headed back to the woods and he managed to track down the grizzly and shot it.

He felt sweet revenge, but then there was a tap on his shoulder. He turned around to find a giant polar bear standing there.

The polar bear said, "Admit it Frank, you don't come here for the hunting, do you?"

I caught more then one fish yesterday. And I caught the largest fish. And we had fun. I wasn't thinking and didn't get a picture of my fish but it was at least a foot long. Honest.

I'm right underneath this, so no mtb riding today. Monday is usually my day off, so that's kind of a bummer. I am dying to get my singlespeed out and push it up some hills.

6100 websites link to mine? That's a helluva lot of links.

Here's my next mini-van. It's not really a minivan but I like it. At the rate I put miles on the one I own now, I will need a new one in 15 years. I'm totally okay with that though.

None of this explains why my wife married me. I'm not exactly sure why she did, but I'm glad she did.

They can change the look of the building, the burgers are still gonna be greasy.

I really don't enjoy working weekends, but it's part of the job. The best part of working overnight is people watching. Normal people don't shop for groceries at 3AM in the morning. This past weekend I got to see a pair of clowns shop.

How often do you see clowns shopping for groceries?.......That's what I thought, not often.

On the way home, I always stop at the local convenience store and get my wife a cup of coffee, this past Sunday morning, I got to see a felony traffic stop right in the parking lot of the convenience store. Just like what you see on COPS. It was pretty cool. When the man in the police car turns his red and blue lights on.......it's a real good idea to pull over right away and do exactly what he says.

Turns out the guy was driving a stolen car so it wasn't much of surprise when 4 or 5 cop cars showed up. Just like on TV.

Rick Santorum is a real slimeball. We are so lucky to have him here in PA.

Couch jumping might cost Tom some money. After his views concerning Scientology and psychiatry became public.....I lost interest in watching him be an action hero.

Till later.

Senior prom...........


Here are a few (140) pictures of our daughter's prom.

Guess which one is my favorite?

Sure is hard to beleive that she's going off to university in a few months......

Today is fishing day for Daniel and I down at Redman, I really want to catch more then one fish this week.

Monday I am going to ride down at Redman and take some more pictures of the recent logging.

Till later.

Last senior prom......

Our daughter had her senior prom Friday night, I'll have some pics of her up on my Flickr account by the end of the weekend. I think they had fun, some of our daughter's friends slept over Friday night.

It would be more accurate to say they came over and stayed up all night and watched movies.

Whatever, you're only young once. And we have one more kid to enjoy the whole process over again with in a few years.

This is some scary stuff about RFID chips.

This is a good law. Anyone that smokes around little kids is a dumbass anyways.

I sure hope no one is Washington says "It's going to get worse before it gets better" It's already worse.

WTF? An extra "optical" inch? Not to get too personal, but who puts a tape measure down there?

This dude had the worst job of the entire Administration. I woulda drove into a bridge abutment years ago if I had that job. He didn't have a whole lot to work with if ya know what I mean........

This would be funny if it wasn't true.

Daaaayymmmnnnn that's a big gun. 15 inches long? That's gotta be way better then gaining an optical inch by shaving your pubic hair.

Till later.

The Donut Guy shoots his mouth off some more.....

Time to poke some fun and make some comments on stuff...............

First off, somebody e-mailed me and complained about yesterday's link.

Did I not warn everyone one that the link was profane (lots of F-bombs) and that it might offend you if you don't have a sense of humor about your beliefs?

I think I did.

So, dear reader (the one who sent me the e-mail), you are hereby not permitted to read my blog anymore.

Piss off.

Go away.

Everyone else still here?...........................

I'm conflicted. Which story is more important? David Blaine's pruny hands or world hunger..........

"Somebody shoot me in the face". Gotta love Steven Colbert. That dudes got a serious set of balls to say what he did with Shrub sitting right there.

I love and I mean I love movies where shit blows up. My only problem is that Tom Cruise is such a f**king squirrel, I'd have a hard time keeping a straight face watching his latest movie.

This is too bad this isn't going to work out. I think they should legalize everything except meth and crack in small quantities. And of course tax the living shit out of it so we can pay down the national debt. Personally, I think taking drugs, smoking or drinking to excess are really stupid, but alcohol and tobacco are legal so why not make some money off of legalizing the other stuff

I used to watch this guy on PBS, sorry to hear he passed away. I was pissed when his producers screwed him over after 32 years.

None of this surprises me one tiny little bit.

I see people like this shopping all the time. It's great that they save money, but I bet that she has so much shit in her house it looks like a clutter bomb went off.

It's because they're drunk. They're Irish, what do you expect?

.40 BAC? Damn, that's drunk. And stupid.

I wanted to ride in to work last night, but 4 hours of sleep and 3 hours of yard work meant I was pretty much cooked before I even put in my 8 hour shift making donuts. Maybe tonight........

I did have a great ride the other morning with my friend Hank, I've lived in York most of my life, but he always seems to find roads I've never been on before. I might have been on some of them, but most of the time I am in oxygen debt trying to keep up and sorta lose track. Good times for sure.

Here's the pot calling the kettle black. That's amazing, U.S./Russian relations are going to be back at Cold War levels soon.

This is just downright spooky. I wonder if some asshole will drive down the street and uproot the mailboxes like they do in my neighborhood.

Till later.

Jesus had a brother............

First off, I am going to say I believe in a higher power and that Jesus walked the earth 2000 years ago.

I also think Jesus had a sense of humor.

If it turns out that he doesn't..........I ain't gonna be needin' a jacket when I die because it won't be cold where I'm going.

This link is not work safe due to language (lots of F-bombs) and if you don't have a sense of humor about your beliefs, do yourself a favor and skip this link.

Jesus had a brother and his name was Craig.

Time for another ass whoopin'

My buddy Hank is coming over this morning to do a road ride.

Time to get my ass handed to me again.

I'm not complaining, I kinda enjoy it.

I think we are gonna commiserate over being the first two people in world history to be kicked out of YAMBA.

I wrote the entire board an apology for mentioning YAMBA when Hank and I talked to the reporter from the YDR and offered to call or meet with each board member individually to look them right in the eye and apologize.

No, I get an e-mail from the club's treasurer seven hours before their board meeting asking me to answer a specific question and to answer it honestly. Give me a break. I'm 46 goddamn years old, just pick up the phone and call me.

Hey, it's not like Hank or I hacked off someone's arm on a trailwork day or pushed someone off of their bike on a ride or even said shitty things on their message board. We made an error in judgment by mentioning the club when we were talking to the reporter.

Would I change anything?

Yeah, I wouldn't have mentioned YAMBA when I talked to the reporter about the York Water Company hacking up Kain Park.

All I can say is the YAMBA board are taking themselves way too seriously and are spiteful on top of that. I have friends on the board, so it's kind of hard to take but I guess that's the way it's gonna be.

Shit happens.

Our company likes to spend money.....

Our store is in the middle of its 3rd major remodel in 8 years.

This remodel is the biggest so far, we are expanding into what used to be a clothing store that was next to us. It's gonna be really nice when it's done, but with all the money they have budgeted for it.......they could have built a new store.

What do I know, I just make donuts for a living.

Our kids were off on Monday, Daniel due to a scheduled day off and our daughter due to having the flu over the weekend. I think this is the first time she has been sick since something like 7th grade- she is one tough girlie girl.

Daniel and I went to the store to stock up on fishing supplies for our next outing, we went through at least a dozen hooks, most of the bobbers we had and a whole bunch of lead weights. I still pretty much suck at catching fish, but I think I will be changing my strategy next time we go out.

Can you have a strategy when you fish?

I'm not really sure, maybe I'll just push Dan into the lake if he catches anything. Just kidding Dan, although as hot as we were on Sunday, we coulda used a swim.

Girlspeak To English Dictionary. Not all these are true but lots of them are.

Improv Everywhere's latest mission. If they show up in our store, they'll probably be told to stop standing around and get to work.

Till later.
