Last night....

Was one of drinking with the old man & making the mistake of getting into a political discussion. Even though I got him to admit something, he still told me that he would vote that way again.

Love him, but you simply can't fix stupid at times.

I had a Clown special for dinner & then we delved into trying different brews. I believe we are going to do the barbeque route tomorrow.

The weather was fantastic today & they say tomorrow is going to be more of the same. God is smiling on Missouri.

The folks had a large visitation of lady bugs at their house. I have been fortunate that the Japanese Beetles didn't show up at mine this year. Yeah, I'm not missing work at all. Is that a bad thing?

I do not....

Miss all the stupid ass drama at the pisser.

I have been enjoying the ease of just being myself & taking each day as it comes.

That being said, it is cool to not listen to the news at all, or answer the phone. Because, lets face it, I have reached the point in my life where I really could give a dead rats ass about anything that doesn't immediately effect me.

I'm going to disconnect for the rest of the day & enjoy the beautiful world God has allowed me to walk in.

Enjoy, while you still can my friends.

Pretty nice...

Being off.

I believe I have discovered a new brew to toss into the mix. It doesn't really taste like a lager, but is really mellow.

I have been ignoring the news as much as I can & concentrating on simply relaxing. The little bit of aggravation & poof, homie is somewhere else.

Trying to rain here, but I'm still gonna hang me out some clothes to dry on the line, because I just love clean sheets fresh off of the clothesline. (as long as there isn't any bird shit on them)

I have to do a little road trip as well. Never enough time to squeeze it all in.

Day trip...

Yesterday, to the Missouri Civil War Museum, that hasn't been opened for very long up at Jefferson Barracks. It is a ways away from being the primo place that they are shooting for, but I believe in a few more years, it might be that.

The building it is housed in, was completed in 1905 & like most of the old buildings at the barracks, they throughout the years, allowed them to fall down. When they finally realized what they actually had at their disposal, they started renovating these old neglected facilities. They actually found the original blueprints for this one & restored it to the pristine shape it was, when first built. The building immediately next door, is currently being redone & will be a part of this museum.

They are redoing other buildings on the campus, to use for other projects. (I have tried to contact all kinds of folks in the past & recommended this kind of project, but at the time, not many cared) It would be a shame to simply allow all of these buildings to vanish in the dust bin of history. (just my opinion of course)

Parking is free & they are open every day, except a few holidays. Visit their website for the various admission rates they charge. I saw some items donated to the museum from folks I know, which was very nice of them to do so.

I picked me up some Kraftig last night & had a few with the old man, who has been carrying around a nasty cold the last few days. I really liked it, not a bad beer at all.

I don't understand people.

They just can't seem to wait to get the hell away from their birth place.

They bolt & spend years, rambling around the country, trying to find something, that they had all along where they were, but were simply too stupid to realize it.

The grass always looks greener on the other side of the fence I guess, but sometimes, it is only because there is a septic tank feeding the area.

Running away to achieve a goal, works for some, but there is nothing like realizing that God dropped you in a place, because that is where you will find happiness. Not on the other side of the planet. Hey, to each their own, but no matter where you go, you are always going to be who you are, so....Locating to a different city, will not change your internal makeup.

God has blessed me with being born in Missouri & while I may vacation in another state, there is no place like home. Not only can I live with that, I'm happy to say that I enjoy being where I'm at. Somewhere, someone, is wishing they lived here...instead of where they are.

Go figure. I'll never understand folks.

Yes I have...

Been enjoying my time off.

A wonderful day with no crackheads screaming for my assistance is a beautiful thing.

Spent yesterday at the folks house watching the Rams actually beat Seattle. Yeah, the world is probably going to end real soon.

Got a lot of stuff done today, I believe it must be beer-thirty time.

Winding it down.

The season is turning, but my roses are hanging in there. Giving me as much beauty as they can, before the cold snaps them away.

Did a lot of crap yesterday as I could squeeze in. Worked on the truck ( Not sure if I fixed the error, because it will take some driving before the code error clears, but I think I found it) But, it's a mystery world baby doll.

Gonna enjoy the day later, when I wake my old ass up. I have lots of crap on the agenda, but who knows what I will add to the completed catagory.

Right now, I'm enjoying some cold ass brews & hanging in the past.

Eventually, I will slide my old ass in a vertical position. But I'm cranking the tunes & loving life.

I would suggest you do the same. It is way to short to worry about stupid ass shit.
