I've been trying to entertain people on Wednesdays with some videos, kind of a fluff day where I can have a blog but not really have much content. Something to keep the reader entertained and coming back.

I'm going to do that again this week, I'm just going to give you a website worth some time for entertainment.

I thought to myself what could I do to interactively give the reader a chance to partake in the fun. I need something where we can all have a good laugh and maybe even laugh at ourselves.

You never know who is watching and in todays age of the smart phone, who might be making you internet famous.

I present to you People of Walmart

Tuesday's Tidbits

* Monday is completed and I'm still out listing for RTI, still sounds like a great reason to do a tidbits.

* It has been 20,663 days since I first entered this world as we know it. I've love every day of being here and I hope I have made a few of you happy with knowing me.

* It has been 5,889 days since I graduated from WVU with a Degree in Geography, specifically GIS.

* 4,490 days ago Michelle and I had our first date together, seems like just yesterday.

* 3,714 days ago I proposed to Michelle, 4:00 in the morning in the back yard.

* It was 4,142 days ago in front of our closest friends and family, Michelle and I tied the knot with the help of a co-worker of hers.

* I have now lived 877 days longer than my Dad did and I'm still going.

* I have 4,214 days to go until I retire, give or take a few hundred days here or there.

* The next Backyard Brawl where we beat Pitt's ass in Football is only 793 days away.

* There are 402 days until Michelle and I head to Pittsburgh to see Reba in concert. It was postponed this March to July and now they are pushing the tour until next year. It'll be mine and Michelle's 10th wedding anniversary.

* There are only 355 days until the start Spring 2021!!!!!

* 217 more days until Phil steps to center stage again for Groundhogs Day. He must be back from his vacation as I have seen him in the back yard this weekend.

* 201 more days to go until my Goodbye 2020 Blog is posted, this should be an interesting one.

* There are 177 more shopping days left until Christmas 2020.

* My next Anniversary of my 21st Birthday will be in 153 more days.

* There are 35 more days to go until Michelle and I celebrate our Ninth Wedding Anniversary together.

* I have written 6,069 blogs in the now 15 1/2 years since I started blogging.

* No drone flights this weekend, but that has pretty much been my recurring theme this year with that. I do have a plan to fly Hayley's wedding venue sometime this spring for her.

* Michelle did the work travel last week, now I am away doing it. She was closer than I was to home, but I'm seeing more remote parts of our state that I've never been to (hint) check the map for where I am at.

* Michelle will be continuing training today she is on her Sophomore classes for this new indepth accounting software that they have purchased. It took her about a week and some frustration just to complete her Freshman course and she has a degree in accounting if that tells you how indepth this training is.

* New quarter was supposed to start for RTI tomorrow, we have NOT been cleared to start so we will not be doing any screening and interviewing yet. Listing, what I am doing today, just involves me driving around and I don't have to get out of my car.

* Still putting in for jobs left and right, there are some jobs opening up and I'm hoping to hear something from one of them. I have two possible ones on hold, one in Huntsville Alabama and one in Charleston, I haven't heard anything from either of them (in terms of a no thank you) so the Corona Virus must be causing a delay.

* Corona Virus, you can still track it but it's losing it's steam a little.

* They STILL have not found Mountie Python, the 15' snake that escaped in Sabraton last summer. He is becoming a Morgantown legend now.

* I'm STILL converting some old VHS tapes to Digital Format for Trish. I really need to get back on this as I am such a procrastinator.

* Hi hi hi ho

All good things must come to an end, and that does in fact include those fun filled things we refer to as weekends. Now it's time to stick out collective noses back onto the grindstone for another fun filled week of doing what we do for a living.

I'll be heading out today to do some listing in what is my largest segment and the most furthest away. I waited until they approved travel as this is going to be a couple day venture to list this segment for RTI, so I will not be back home this evening and will instead be staying in a hotel a few hours away from home. This is the last segment I have to list and it is the one we had to put off until the very end due to it's size and proximity to my location. I have a feeling I will be driving a lot of dirt roads today to say the least.

On a side note, the Softball team plays their second game of the season tonight and I will once again miss the game. This is the 2nd game this season and the 2nd one I've missed due to working. Good luck to the guys tonight, hopefully they can get the Win and I can join them next week for my 2020 debut.

Have yourselves a great day

Goff Building
Here I sit yet once again, Peanutless and without my co-author, so I'm going to try to put my brain in high gear as I'm flying solo this morning. I'm up streaming some Gordon Ramsey show (something about 24 hours) and collecting my thoughts for the day.

Yesterday Michelle and I went to the Goff Building in Clarksburg to see how her office is coming along, they are really doing a great job on it and I realized that her office with her big storefront window (her office used to be a bank) looks out into the street and will basically be the prime location when they have the next Italian Heritage Festival in Clarksburg. The headquarters for it is right across the street and they are right next door to the Courthouse where the main stage is always placed.  Her Office (they bought the entire building) is the lower left front of the image.

On the way back from Clarksburg we stopped at Almost Heaven Desserts in Bridgeport for some treats. I got some Canolli's and they were by far the best I have ever had. This place is amazing, expensive but quite amazing. I guess they are the ones that supply all the desserts to Oliverios Restaurants.

It rained yesterday and it looks like it is going to be similar today, so our grass still has not been cut, but we'll get around to it eventually. It's not a tedious task like it used to be.

Have a great and relaxing Sunday.

Saturday Morning Peanutless Ramblings

Here I sit once again in a quiet Household, my co-author Peanut is still in bed and I am once again flying solo this morning. I have something streaming on TUBI on the TV behind me, but not sure what it is as I'm still waking up.

Not sure if we have any plans for the day, I know we haven't cut grass in a few weeks, but it's still really not that high due to the lack of rainfall recently. Then again with the high probability of rain this weekend that may just have to wait.

Not sure if our bi-weekly trip to Rural King to get bird food is warranted yet, Michelle bought three bags the last time we went and those little aviary slobs have been sharing with squirrels, chipminks, Groundhogs and a few other animals. I think we are starting to develop a zoo in the back yard. Yesterday morning I had to hold Peanut as I let her out as there were so many animals near the door when I let her out. She's protective of her territory and I gave them a head start to get away from our little co-author/hunter feline queen.

Have yourselves a great day and stay safe, this COVID-19 is starting to spike again.

Big Ole Hairy Friday

Yes it is once again that time of the week that we all look foreword to, when we can take time to cease the labors for the week and take a little bit of needed time out to enjoy the fruits of those labors. It is once again the dawn of another weekend and a Big Ole Hairy Friday....or something like that.

Michelle is home after a couple of days on the road working in Canonsburg, we held the fort down as she was out earning a living. Looks like I may be traveling early next week. One thing I did officially learn is that we will not be starting a new quarter with RTI on Tuesday. It is the first and it is the start of a new quarter, but they are not releasing work in West Virginia at this time due to the Corona Virus. I will go travel early next week and list one more segment, but that could be it for a while.

My agenda for the day? I'll be doing the Sam's Club shopping and heading to the Laundromat to dry clothes. We're probably going to try cutting grass sometime soon, but it's not that high and really doesn't need it yet. I know we both like riding around on the lawn tractor, so there is always

Have yourselves a great day and the start of a greater weekend.

Photo Flashback Thursday

Once a week I like to take a little bit of time out and look through all of my pictures that I have stored on my computer. Little lost moments of time that I like to write and reflect about and spend a little bit of time reliving. Sometimes it's a pretty easy task and sometimes it's not so easy, it is however always a whole lot of fun.

This weeks picture goes back a number of years, back to when Gary was living in Masontown and was training for the US Olympic Cigarette Smoking team. He was going for the advanced division of smoking multiple ones at once through multiple entrances.

We had a cookout that day and everyone showed up and had a good time. Gary was the grillmaster and did one heck of a job training and cooking.
