Family Pictures

Well, back to some old family pictures.

I found this one of Uncle Roy and I have to say that I have a little bit of 'ick' stuck in my mind now. Did he think that by blending in with the sofa that 'the ladies' would not notice and sit on his lap?

Either way, at least he is trying. Unlike my mom's cousin Alice, who just gave up looking. Even now she keeps asking me if I like her 'kitties'.

Bangers and Mash

My wife and I went flying today. She was a great co-pilot and didn't get sick or flail at all. We landed at a nice little grass strip in the neighboring state and had a fuzzy black lab there to greet us! Overall a pretty fun morning.

What the hell does this thingie do?

To celebrate getting to fly together, we went to an English Pub. Not in England mind you, but it had some hokey decorations to make me think that everyone there would have an accent and bad teeth. Austin Powers was nowhere to be seen. The bored waitress had normal teeth and a plaid skirt that matched my napkin. I think my napkin was bigger though, but I wasn't looking I swear.

I had Bangers and Mash and my better half had Fish and Chips. We even got to put a little vinegar on them for authenticity. To top it off, it was offically noon straight up, so we shared a pint of Smithwicks to make us right saucey!

After promising not to brush our teeth for at least a week (for authenticity), we left to pick up our dearest little one who got to hang with her buddy for the morning. After we picked her up I could sense some jealousy on her part. I think she could smell the Avgas from the flight. Next time she gets to go too.

Tonight she came out dressed for bed in a beautiful pink ensemble with sparkly pineapples on it. To say she was impressed with herself would be an understatement. She made twirly little circles in the living room to display her finery. After ten circles and a bump on the head, we were ready bed.

Tonight the old folks at the house are going to try and watch either 'Juno' or 'Into the Wild'. Our usual movie watching routine involves lots of snoring followed by the credits rolling two hours later. We used to watch lots of movies, now I just want to watch the back of my eyelids. Wish us luck!

Bad Clothes

I was looking through some family pictures the other day and I came across this one. I can't believe the weird clothes my parents used to wear. Can you find the strange clothing choice in this picture?
That's right, that one guy is wearing a hat with flaps on the back! Did he just come back from the Sahara desert? Weirdo!
I won't even mention the guy with the angora sweater....

Snowmen are lame in May

It's snowing.

In May.

I'm supposed to be working, but it's snowing.

In May.

Instead I'll blog a little.

I did get to open a big box that came in the mail yesterday though and that was fun. We had reached the maximum amount of crap that our computer would hold and had to upgrade to a bigger hard drive. So with some careful shopping, we found a 500 gig hard drive to store our files for only $100. The big box I got to pry open was full of those wonderful styrofoam peanuts (I don't know why they are called peanuts, because I ate a bunch and now my toilet bowl looks like a snow globe). The big box had a smaller box inside. The smaller box had a smaller box inside of it. Kind of like those Russian nesting dolls. The actual hard drive is the size of a paper back book, but the shipping box was big enough to put at least three human heads in (I stuck my head in there to check).

I guarantee this song will be stuck in your head for the rest of the day:

Skunky Butt

I rode my bike in the rain to get home last night from work. It was only a mile or so, but it was still raining. I didn't have to worry about getting a mud stripe up my back from the wet tire flinging goo on me, because I have gotten old and sensible and installed fenders on my bike. The younger version of me would have kicked my own ass for putting lame fenders on a bicycle. When I was younger, I would have worn my skunk stripe as a badge of honor. Now I would be afraid people would think that I shit my pants.

On a lighter note, I got to gallop around my house tonight with my one and a half year old child on my back. I was a good horse and made all the required horsey noises and generally kicked and farted like a real horse would.

Imagine this:

A yellow spot on the horizon slowly approaches the coast. People have gathered and watch in amazement as a giant yellow rubber duck approaches. The rubber duck knows no boundries; it doesn't discriminate against people and it doesn't have any political connections. The rubber duck is soft, friendly and suitable for all ages. And best of all it is a GIANT FUCKING RUBBER DUCK!

Willie Nelson for President

In the course of moving I missed celebrating Willie Nelson's 75th Birthday!

Happy Birthday Willie!!!

And if you don't think he looks like my Dad your nuts...

My little sister gave me a nice buzz

I got home from helping a friend of mine move his stuff to a new house too. I thought I was done moving, but I guess not.

Any way, my little sis sent me a couple of nice beers in the mail for my B-day. I saved one until last night and had a little bit last night and a little tonight and the buzz is nice to say the least. The beer is from Austria and is 14% alcohol and I love it! Big beers are the shiznit. I'm turning into a beer prude, the regular beers are just boring now. If it isn't at least 9% or bigger, I am not entertained. Needless to say it is difficult getting big beers, but I also enjoy the hunt for new ones.

Why do women rub their eyes in the morning after they wake up?

Because they don't have balls to scratch....

Good night! Teehee!!!
