Day 242, Missing my ice cubes..

Ok, bet you will never guess the reference to that title?  Yesterday’s blog was devoted to DS1. I probably could write anything I want (oh, I do) since he never reads my blog.  He is a bit of an odd duck when it comes to social media. Yes he has a Facebook page, but Twitter, FourSquare and whatever other social media that is out there, he does not participate in.  I really don’t get it. I have reluctantly embraced Facebook. I say reluctantly since I heard so many bad stories about Facebook that I avoided it like the plague. Now it just another way to keep in touch with my family. I have enjoyed Twitter since my two younger sons are on Twitter as are several of my siblings.

Damm, have I got fat fingers or what?  NO spell check, no pictures, no clean up? I was in the middle of writing this blog when the I hit some key and the blog published itself.  Maybe that means that I am done writing for the night. Maybe not.  I will proceed as if I did not punch the print button.

Yesterday was an off day for my DW and I. DS1 worked, DS2 had homework and practicing and DS3 had his Military Ball. The battalion had its annual dinner out night. The ate at the Radisson Hotel just down the street from the university. We asked DS3 for some pictures. We were looking for pictures of him dressed for dinner. We got a few general pictures from the dinner. They are at the bottom of the page. 

Today, Sunday my DW had her hair done. She has an appointment every six weeks like clock work. Me, I am more of the gee, I need a haircut, kind of scheduling.  After she had her hair done we went grocery shopping. After we got home we watched some college lacrosse on TV. Dinner was Cioppino. In the cioppino we had bay scallops, tile fish, shrimp, clams and mussels. It was really good. I also had some sour dough bread to dip in the sauce.  Last night we had fish and chips. We beer battered some codfish and had french fries to go with it. I enjoyed the meal It has been a fish weekend for us. Don’t worry, there are steaks and chicken on the menu this week.

The ice cubes, they normally go in my shot or two of rum in the rocks glass that lubes this blog. I forgot them tonight. Tonight’s pictures are from the Military Ball that were uploaded by DS3.     Enjoy!
