All good things must come to an end, and that does include uneventful things we refer to as weekends. Now it is time to stop all the weekend things and get back to doing what it is that we do for a living. Let's stick our collective noses back onto that grindstone for another week of making this a better rock to live on. 

Still working 12-hour shifts this week and I will be until this project is over with in three weeks, so I'm going to make the money while it is available. There are a number of next prospects, just waiting to see what transpires.

We will get a house guess today for the cats and the bird. Mom's Dod Lucy is going to come and pay us a visit today as Gerald gets his batteries changed. She is going to come over and pay a visit and relax, I'll be working so she'll either have to play with the cats or with Kiwi. If I know better, Kiwi is going to teach her to play a board game that he's going to cheat to win on. He's just like that at times. 

Other than that it's just going to be our typical week, Michelle will be visiting her Mom this evening and I'm on my own for dinner. 

Have yourselves a great day.

Here I sit once again in a quiet household, Kiwi is up but he's not talking this morning. Something about he wants to commercialize his twitter account and make a $Trillion this year and he can't be bothered with our conversations this morning. Stuck up Aviary. 

Yesterday turned out to be a pretty lazy day, we pretty much did nothing yesterday. I went and dried clothes in the early AM, but that was about the extent of what we did other than sleep. 

Today there are a few things that I would like to do, starting with the weeks grocery shopping and then coming home and doing our weekly chores. Just a pretty redundant weekend for the most part. I know the weather was much warmer, but it was wet as hell yesterday so nothing got done outside. 

Have yourselves a great week and rest up for the coming challenges this week. Have a great and memorable day.

Saturday Morning Ramblings

Here Kiwi and I sit once again, we having another one of our in-depth conversations about whether Happy Days or Lavern and Shirley was the better show. Me, I favored Happy Days, Kiwi on the other hand loved Lenny and Squiggy and is a Lavern and Shirley fan. 

It looks as if it is going to be a wet weekend, so I am probably going to wait until next weekend to fire up the tractor and do a little bit of yard work. It's getting to be that time of the year and there are a few outside things I would like to get done including putting the AC back into the bedroom window before it starts to get hot. 

Other than that no real plans this weekend, especially when the weather is not really cooperating. I know we do tend to live a very boring life around here, but we tend to get our naps in during the inclimate weather season. 

Have yourselves a great day.

Big Ole Hairy Friday

Yes, it is once again that time of the week that we all look forward 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 again the dawn of another weekend and a Big Ole Hairy Friday.

My agenda for the day is to work and then head to do our weekly Walmart and Sams shopping. It's basically what I do every Friday afternoon to close out the workweek, then Michelle and I go out to dinner afterward to celebrate the end of another week of work coming to a close. 

No big plans for us this weekend, I know my Mom asked me to watch Lucy on Monday while Gerald has a procedure done. We'll hand out with a couple of cats and Kiwi with his bird's eye view will keep tabs on everything for me. He's pretty good at that. 

We have no plans for the weekend, although if it is warm and there is not much rain we may fire up the lawn tractor and pick up some limbs and stuff that have fallen recently. Grass is way to short and it's still way too wet to mow, but maybe I can get the tractor ready for the summer. 

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+ photos that I have stored on my computer. Little lost moments in time that I either captured with a lens, scanned, or just stole from someplace on the internet. I like to find just one and post it up and recall or relive the picture to the best of my ability. Sometimes this is a pretty easy task and sometimes it's not that easy, one thing it has always been a whole lot of fun.

Any guess what bossy bird chose this week's Photo Flashback? You guessed it it was Kiwi who was absent for the picture believe it or not. He had a contractual dispute and refused to appear unless we met his demands. 

I got this shirt for Michelle last year on Amazon, you can find about anything on Amazon, and it's a shirt with her two favorite morning things, Coffee and I have been replaced with Kiwi. Although I can't seem to recall her ever wearing the shirt again, but I could be wrong. 

Have yourselves a great day.
