Had a nice birthday dinner for my wife with friends last night. We went to the Thai Orchid Restaurant. As usual, it was very good. It was also Kate’s birthday, the blonde in the top two pictures below.
We all stayed up too late last night and I, for one am dragging this morning. Tomorrow will be a long day as well, I’m going to Cayman Brac for work for the day. It will be a 14 hour day, minimum. Hope I can get some extra sleep tonight!
I realized today what a fast runner I am. i spilled coffee grounds this morning, and apparently, it takes me the same amount of time to clean up spilled coffee grounds as it takes me to run my 1.8 mile course, because by the time I got it cleaned up, It was the same time on the clock as when I get into the shower.
i didn’t run today, spilled coffee, didn’t have time.
If Ditto was still alive, it`d be his birthday. Also, on this day in 1979, I left Silver Spring, MD for boot camp.
Yesterday at work, I ha annual safety training, all day. Got it again this afternoon, and tomorrow morning.
Last night we had a small cookout for my wifes best friends dads birthday. I cooked a whole tenderloin, AKA a 7 pound filet mignon, on the barbecue.
I gotta say, it came out beautifully. First i put the potatoes on high for a while. Then I put the meat on, still on high, for 5 minutes. Then I turned it over for 5 minutes. Then i put the grill on low and turned it over every 15 minutes for about an hour and fifteen.
Before I started, I was stressed about screwing it up, but after a while, I started to get the good feeling. Then I was worried about the potatoes. They were good too.
I’m pretty sure everyone got enough to eat.
Now it’s hump day. I’m riding the scooter, first time in weeks!
Happy Birthday to me! Double nickles old.
My wife brought me to The Wyndam in East End. Used to be The Reef, (I guess it still is)
Room 106B, the best room. If you ever come here, ask for 106B. Note to self.
When I turned 40, seems like about 5 minutes ago, I thought, “My life is approximately half over (If I don’t screw up and get m’self kilt)”. This second half seems to be moving a lot faster than the first.
I think that birthdays are good times to make new years resolutions, after all, it is the start of a personal new year, isn’t it?
My resolution is “no TV when the sun is above the horizon”. I gave up television totally before I got married, now, the Wife likes it, so I end up watching too, and getting addicted. I like Modern Family.
This weekend, we’re going to East End for a mini stay-cation. It’s gonna be GREAT!
We have a young woman staying over to take care of the dawgs.
You know you’re getting old when you call a pretty girl a “young woman”!
