Thursday, day three..

Then darkness set in, as I looked around… Nevermind, wrong screen. Today is a WFH day.  Work From Home, get it.  The battle of the morning was WFH or CIS (call or in our company – email, in sick) Why waste the day.  No sense in being sick with no plans, lol.  The other question is, why do we have a pirate flag flying from our front porch? It does contrast nicely with the flowers in the flower boxes, but…  I get the American flag, the Birthday flag, the lobster flag, the Mardi Gras flag.  Maybe the pirate flag is for the Fourth of July.  Maybe just for the heck of it. OC (oldest child) off at Viking Village Dock packing out boats, making boxes and shoveling ice. MC (middle child) playing WOW, he has the day off from Acme where he works in the deli. YC (you guess – right Youngest Child) is out dropping off an application for employment.  He is desperate to get out of the shoe store and work with animals.  Me, watering garden and working on tax change issues for retailers in Connecticut and Maryland.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thursday evening… Work done, lobster ravioli from COSTCO for dinner. OC off to PHL for the night then Amtrak to Greensburg to visit college girlfriend for the weekend. MC ate with us. YC took girlfriend to Olive Garden for dinner. She leaves for three weeks in Europe (google:  American Musicians Abroad). Final piece of puzzle solved today. puzzle was to fix existing laptop or replace. Purchased hard drive and reloaded. Purchased new power cord and new battery. Now I am mobile again and computer is working great.  Sprayed for mosquitos outside this evening, writing on the back porch. So far, so good. Oh, last night, no tv. Read my current book John Sandford, Buried Prey. Drags a little, worth reading.  Maybe tv tonight, might start the new Tom Clancy book (COSTCO as well). Here is a picture of YC and the princess..

Wednesday day two

Rough night. Temps and humidity inverted (humidity was more than temperature). Window fans worked ok until 3 am thunderstorms warranted the closing of the windows. Turned on the a/c. DW was up and down all night. Packed my bicycle in the van this morning. I got my riding stuff so I can ride the Allaire rail trail after work. Fairly easy 20 miles from Allaire park to the Manasquan Inlet and back. Buying lunch today (no brown bag!)

Afternoon musings… Lunch in Belmar across from beach. I think I was the only person there over the age of 40.  Want to know where all the teenagers are spending mom and dad’s money? At the shops down the shore. Had buffalo chicken pizza. Fair at best. First six choices were sold out (right)!  Five days to the Fourth of July, they better get moving before the summer is over.  Bet management was glad to see me go, scaring off the young children and all. (lol)

Evening – Bike ride went well. Not too many people out. 18 miles total distance.  I shot one picture and one video.  Here they are

Looks like video upload cost 60 dollars a year.  I will give this a few weeks before spending any money.  I put the video on Twitvid http://www.twitvid.com/FVGBX  That is all for tonight. Time for some tv.

Just turned 50, thought I might write about the year

I tried to start this project yesterday, stumbled. Yesterday was a Tuesday, man it’s tough getting up on Tuesdays. I play lacrosse on Monday nights for 90 minutes. We play with college to 60 year old players. Summer time (now) there are lots of college kids. Worked on my birthday (got to stop that silliness).
