Sunday Morning Ramblings

Here I sit once again in a quiet household, Peanut is running around somewhere, I think she has kitty ADHD sometimes. I'm waking up and have Deadpool 2 streaming in the background. A thousand + TV channels and there is nothing on so I stream my own content.

Todays agenda will be to meet up with Hayley and Tyler as well as Tyler's parents Mark and Alyce and meet up at the 4H Camp, Camp Muffley to look at it as a possible venue for their upcoming wedding next year.They have looked at a few other venues, but this will be the first one locally that they will be looking at.

Afterwards Mark and Alyce have invited us to their home for dinner this evening. We've been there at Christmas time and were invited for the Superbowl Party, but we stayed home for that one as we are both early risers and were asleep before the game ended.

Other than that it's just going to be our typical repetitive Sunday, minus me going out to do fieldwork for RTI.

Have yourselves a great day

I plan on it.

Saturday Morning Ramblings

Here I sit once again in a quiet household, the TV is on but nothing is on it. My co-author Peanut has already checked in for the blog and given me her thoughts on the days events. Now it's just up to me to contemplate the day and put it all together on my keyboard to share with the world.

My day is going to once again consist of me heading out into the field to do some field work. I'm just getting my final records of call and something tells me that when my Supervisor gets back from the Caribbean that she is going to transfer them to a traveler for cleanup. I should be getting my new segment materials here in a few weeks.

Michelle and Hayley are going back up home today for her Sister in Law Tyra's Baby shower. They are going to spend a Mom - Daughter Day together visiting GiGi, going to the Hot Dog Shoppe and some girl fun with the shower.

Tomorrow we are all going to the 4H Camp to check out wedding venues for Hayley and Tyler's wedding next year. Mark and Alyce, Tyler's parents will be joining us to check the venue out.

Other than working today not much going on for me. Probably watch the WVU Basketball Game this afternoon and that's probably going to be about it for my agenda. I do tend to lead a pretty boring life although I have taken trips to St Louis and Washington DC so far this year and have another cruise to the Caribbean booked and paid for and I'm hoping for San Diego once again this year. I wonder if I can convince them to send me to Vegas again..lol.

Have yourselves a great day

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.

Michelle is going to have a busy weekend. Tomorrow she will be heading back home for her Sister in Law Tyra's Baby Shower. Her and Hayley will be traveling up for the day. Then Sunday they are going to the 4-H Camp to look at it as a possible wedding venue for when Hayley and Tyler get married next year.

My weekend, what else could happen in it other than me heading out into the field and working. It's the story of my life the last few years, but I believe in what I am doing so that makes it a lot easier to keep on continuing to work the second job.

Have yourselves a great day

Photo Flashback Thursday



Once a week I like to take a little bit of time out, time to look at some of the 30,000+ images that I have either captured with a Camera, Scanned or just simply stolen off the internet. Little lost moments in time that I post up and relive tight here for everyone while I try to recall the moments around that image. Sometimes it's pretty easy to find that image and sometimes it's a challenge, although one thing it always is is a whole lot of fun for me.

This weeks pic is a picture of what I knew to be my siblings at the time, we did not know anything about Jonathan at this time other than an older sibling existed.

There is a little bit of sadness behind this picture as it was taken in 1999 right before we all were getting ready to go to the funeral home to lay our father to rest for the last time. We grabbed this shot before we headed out on what is a very sad day in my life.

Have yourselves a great day today

* Michelle has been under the weather all weekend.

*  Cruise is all booked and paid for, now we have to see what else we want to purchase pre-trip.

* Met some nice GIS contacts in DC last week, it was an amazing conference.

* If anyone is going to DC in the near future, I have a metro pass with about $25 worth of credits on it that I will loan to someone if they ask.

* Have I ever mentioned I hate snow? It's been a mild winter, but I just wanted to point that out.

* They STILL have not found Mountie Python, the 15' snake that escaped in Sabraton this summer.. He even has his own twitter account.

Presidents Day

Would you believe that I get to stretch my weekend one more day, or should I be more factually accurate and say kind of. Yes today is President's Day and it is a Federal Holiday, so we will be observing it at the office.

On the other job however that is not as accurate, I'm using this day to do some day time work to see of I can find some illusive people at home or get them to answer the door. I took yesterday off, so I'll try to make today a good day of it and see if I can manage to whittle down my case load a little bit more. So I will be working, but it will be a relaxing kind of working day and not too stressful.

I have to get back to doing my regular routine this week after being away on travel last week. It's always fun to travel, but I'm also a little comfortable with routines which is what I'm trying to get back into this week.

Have yourselves a great day
