Fast Runner

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.

There’s your daily randomness. Havva goodun! 

Tuesdays Dinner Party

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!

Have a great day!

Personal New Year

Tomorrow is my birthday, 7-11.

I’ll be 55.

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”!

Have a good weekend!

Today is my Wife’s Birthday. I won’t tell you how old she is. We had a party for her Saturday night, well , she had a party. I was working. She did all the work cleaning the house and getting the beverages and whatnot. But today’s her birthday. She loves her birthday! I hope to make it as special for her as I can.

It’s Monday. blah. I was up till midnight and got up at 5. I had a sound job this weekend and was editing and uploading the audio till late. When I woke up and looked at the computer, the final file had finished uploading 7 minutes ago.

Have a good week!
