This weekend...
Scraping barnacles! Got boat on friends lift, neighbor is going to let me borrow power washer, and I have 3 putty knives for what the washer does not remove.
Once that is done, I can get boat on the AirDock and turn existing floaty boat dock into a real dock that is floating, with table,chairs and fire pit. Is gonna be awesome!
Sounds like you'll be hosting a Topix party soon!

WEEKEND: I have my SIL and niece and nephew in town this week, so they are here until Sunday. I think we are going to the beach tomorrow if the weather isn't bad.
Sunday my daughter has a vocal recital, then Sunday night I am headed to Orlando to stay at one of the theme park resorts for a few days with the family.

I am REALLY bummed, though, becaus i have to miss the Monkees concert. I can't REMEMBER when I've missed one of their concerts! And it's the first tour without Davy (and with Mike Nesmith). I hope they don't miss me too much.

THe link didn't work so I googled it. I don't understand what the point of that is. Is it just to raise it out of the water some?

Legendary guitarist/musician Nils Lofgren is a HUGE sports fan. Of course, lots of pro athletes are big music fans, so it's kind of fun when two guys who are mutual fans of each other meet up!

Cute FB post for you Jesus lovers:

Sometimes life leaves me feeling empty and alone. But I always look to Jesus for my strength and healing. Maybe some pasta for the empty feeling.

well, since it's been raining all morning, i won't be able to do the yard work that needs doing. part of that is the weed warfare. i planned to be at it like flies on $h!t this year, but it's either been too wet or too hot to spray like i need to... <sigh>

so, i think i'll be sewing tonight and some of tomorrow, and sunday i have the 3 of baby showers this year (next weekend is hte 4th one). no offense to my south-suburban living cousins, but i'm tired of driving!(shouldnt complain too much - there are 3 otehrs from an hour+ north of me who show up!)

My friend was pretty angry this morning. Email from her:

I got up at 5am this morning and went out for my long run of the week - 11 f*cking miles

I got into the house at 7:15am and hes like, "How was it?"

Me, "Pretty good, got in 10.8 miles."

Mike,**disappointed snorting noise**

Me, "WTF was that noise about?"

Mike, "Weren't you going for 11?"

Me, "ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? I JUST RAN 10.8. HOW MUCH CLOSER SHOULD I GET? SHOULD I BE DISAPPOINTED WITH 10.8??"

FWIW, her husband ran 3.1 miles the other day and posted a map of his run on FB like it was a big deal.

I am glad someone liked this. I thought it was respectful of Jesus but also still cute/funny with the pasta comment.

I got it from stfu believers, and someone had submitted it as a BAD FB post using religion, but I disagreed with that sentiment. I think it's sweet.

I think it's cute.

On another note, I find myself wishing I would live long enough to see the FSM become an actual deity. People are so gullible, I can see it happening.

I read a book recently by the niece of the guy who is in charge of Scientology...it was really interesting so I delved a little deeper and started reading other stuff, those people actually revere LRH as like a prophet...only 50 years to get thousands of gullible people on board. Wow. Of course Christianity, Islam, Judiasm, et. al. did likewise, so I shouldn't be surprised.

So...wondering how long until Pastafarianism becomes an actual religion. I can really see it happening.

Ah. Now was that so hard? You keep talking about this boat, and the grill, and the dog, and mangos...I might have to move to FL. Except for the heat/humidity. You DO have central AC right?:D
