Bye bye Halloween






Pictures from Saturday nights Halloween party.
There were lots of zombies, lots of ninja turtles, quite a few minions and entirely too many men in drag.

I was a Vulcan Star Trek dude, taking the award for least amount of effort put into a Halloween costume.

And now it’s Monday. This afternoon, the wide goes to Florida for work, I go up Saturday and we go on a cruise.

Not looking forward to spending a week without my wife around, but I’ll do my best to…

Have a good week!

Finally Friday


My feet and the moon


A horrible photo of me, great photo of Ashy.

Glad it’s Friday. Long week. Weather has been nice. I rode the scooter since Tuesday, first time since the 7th.

No plans for the weekend. Halloween tomorrow. I’m gonna be a Star Trek dude. My costume is a Star Trek T-shirt. The wife and all our friends have very elaborate costumes they’ve been working on for months. Not looking forward to spending the evening with a bunch of people who are drinking and drunk.

Hope I get to the beach this weekend and I’d love to go diving.

Started this post feeling OK, now I’m not so sure…

Have a good weekend!

#HTTR Hail To The Redskins!


Redskins had a great game Sunday. Although beating Tampa 31-30 may not sound too impressive, Redskins came back from 24-0 to win. That is the greatest deficit The Skins ever recovered from. Also quarterback Kirk Cousins set or tied (not sure which) the Redskins record, 33 completed passes in one game.

Redskins have the weekend off next Sunday, going into their bye week on a high. Hopefully the Skins can be an improved team after this great weekend.

Miami had a great first half, stomping Texas 41-0, and winning 44-26.

And Dallas lost!

I had an ok weekend, hanging out at home while the wife went to a weekend-long bachelorette party at East End.

Now it’s Monday, blah, but after this, the holiday season will be here!


The Word Friday…..

……Will Not appear In The Title Of This Post.

Every Friday post has the word Friday in the title. Not today, dammit.

Glad the weekend is almost here though.


I’m on the back porch. This is my view.

I moved WhatsApp from my tablet to my phone. First I got this:


Not available… So I had to sideload it.  Now the app won’t work on my tablet, because one device per phone number. I find this inconvenient.

Last night a frog jumped off the roof and landed on my head. I said WTF! and threw it off the balcony. That makes three frogs seen in two days. The wife’s going to have a cow when she sees one. It’s frog season.

Oh I’m glad it’s Friday! Even though it’s not looking like a nice weekend…


Have a good one!

The weekend in brief.

Friday: Canadian Thanksgiving dinner at Brian n Rosio’s house. Very Good!

Saturday: Wife worked, I caught rays on the porch. Saturday night, Dinner at Copper Falls with some out of town visitors.

Sunday: Wife went to the beach, I watched football and mowed the yard. Ashy the cat attacked Sheba and gave her a scratch on her nose, Wife cried, Ashy got yelled at.

I have a problem taking pictures. When everyone is taking pictures, I don’t, because everyone else is. Then, I have no pics for my blog. The table Friday was very nicely set up. everyone was taking pictures, not me. I figured I’d steal one off of Facebook, but didn’t see any.

I need to lose my inhibitions!

Have a great week!

No News Is Good News

It was a great weekend! Friday I stayed home while the Wife went out to Oktoberfest. Not my cuppa tea)

Saturday I went to the beach, wife had to work (only for two hours). The beach is full of seaweed, and I had the whole 7 Mile Beach to myself! Didn’t see another soul. The sea’s been pretty  rough, with the wind coming opposite the normal direction. Good sand n sun tho, it was great!

Sunday, we took Sheba to the beach at Barkers, not much seaweed there, came back, gave Sheba a bath. Then I trimmed the tree in the back yard. It had branches hanging down almost to the ground. After that we went to a friends house and hung out by the pool.

And I watched Football, Redskins won,  Dallas lost.

It was a good weekend.

Super weird dreams last night though. I had a brain twister about the anomalies of the number 96. And a different dream that someone was building real structures of optical illusions. There was a corner of a building, a house really, that was up on a pole. It had a still-alive woman from olden days, still young and not affected by time. And more illusions. Too weird to retain in the brain. Waker-uppers. I got up and laid on the back porch for a pretty long time, since
sleeping wasn’t comfortable. 

But it was a good weekend! I feel pretty good this morning, despite lack of sleep. We’ll see now the day goes.

Have a good week!

New Cat Friday

This week was NOT fast like the previous two. I’ll be glad to get home tonight after work.

We’re getting a new cat tonight, an indoor cat. The lady is bringing her over tonight and we’ll see how she (the cat) gets on with the dogs. We’ve set up a kennel for the cat to spend her days in, and hopefully she won’t jump off the balcony.


The Wife has already named the cat Ashley. She’s been looking for a grey cat for along, coming to the conclusion that there were none on the island, when Ashley shows up at the Ritz.

So we’ll see how it goes.

Have a good weekend!

Friday Finally Fantastic

It’s Friday. I feel very relaxed and calm. Not much to say today. All good.

Supposed to rain today, according to my weather apps. It has rained every day this week, but my weather apps have said all clear, so I rode the scooter. I got rained on once. Today, I’ll take the car, (on the weather app’s advice), so it’ll probably be clear. Not complaining.

Supposed to rain tomorrow. I’m supposed to go diving and look for an airplane that crashed long ago. Last night, I dreamed I went diving. I just remembered.

Have a great weekend!
