Here we go once again, the start of another fun filled week of doing what it is that we do for a living. It's time to stop having all the fun and get back to doing what it is we do for a living. Address each day like we are changing the world and making it a better place to be in.

Today I'll be most likely traveling out of the county to do some more listing work for RTI. They assigned me three new segments and I'm addressing the largest of the three today and it is the only one that is not in the same county that I live in. The good news is, I can realistically have Yann's Hot Dogs for lunch (or breakfast) today, wait, I just realized he's not open on Monday's oh the humanity of now being denied.

Michelle is still sore from her surgery, she will be returning to work today since she has payroll to do and complete.

Speaking of Michelle she woke up yesterday morning kind of sore, I was going to go and do all the shopping but she decided that she wanted to go as well and came along. She is an amazingly strong and independent woman who is someone I would define as resilient in anything she sets out to do.

Have yourselves a great day today, make the very most of it and do something to make this world we live in just a little bit better.

Sunday Morning Ramblings

Here I sit on a quiet Sunday Morning, I think Peanut has quit and doesn't want to be my co-author anymore. Maybe she wants more treats and is on strike or protesting that Cat Lives Matter.

Michelle had a good day yesterday with Chris and Uncle Bull. They started out with going to visit her Grandmother Gigi and then ended up at a big birthday party for Jonny. So to say that they had a full day is a bit of an understatement. Chris did in fact promise to bring her home in one piece and she did accomplish that.

I did manage to get the grass cut yesterday while Michelle was away. It was starting to get a little bit high due to all the rain we had had and I knew that we were supposed to get rain and thundershowers yesterday and with the storm coming up the coast I could surmise that we will be getting some more rain, so I jumped ahead of the game before it got too bad and out of hand.

Today's plans are simply grocery shopping and me setting up to list for RTI one or two days this coming week. So my day isn't going to be completely open and full of naps.

Have yourselves a wonderful day.

Saturday Morning Rambling

Here I sit once again in a quiet household, I'm up watching American Gangster on the TV and waiting for my co-author to wake up and get off the stairs where she has been sleeping all night to assist me in writing this blog.

First things first, Michelle had surgery yesterday on her wrist as I mentioned on yesterday's blog. I spoke with the Doctor and the surgery went perfect and there were no complications. Her wrist is wrapped and she goes back for a post surgery follow up in two weeks to see the surgeon when she will begin physical therapy. She was in good spirits last night, so she doesn't appear to be in too much pain.

Today she will ride along with her Sister Chris and Uncle Bull to go to Jonny's Birthday Party and to go and see her Grandmother. Chris is going to pick her up here in a few hours to head up.

My day's agenda probably includes mowing grass if the weather permits. With the rain that we have been having this past week it has grown a good bit the past couple of days. No complaints here as we have needed the rain and I don't mind riding around the yard and cutting the grass. =)

Have yourselves a great day today

Maker it a memorable one.

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 scheduled to have surgery early this afternoon, we have to be at the hospital just before noon and her surgery is scheduled for 1:30 this afternoon. Should take about a half an hour (in surgery) to to this procedure, then she'll head off to recovery and then back home later today. They are going to put a few screws into her arm and do something with a nerve to relieve carpel tunnel (she had the surgery on the other arm years ago) and she should be good to go this afternoon.

That's basically our plans for the day, the things that we usually do on Fridays we've already completed and off of our agenda dedicating the whole day to her surgery and recovery. So it is going to be a get Michelle repaired and better kind of a day.

No plans for me this weekend, Michelle may travel back home for Jonny's Birthday if she feels up to traveling. I guess that will be a tomorrow call rather than something we know for certain today.

Have yourselves a great weekend.

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 goes back to Joey and Amanda's wedding a few years ago, Michelle and I had went up to see them tie the knot and stayed the evening, this picture was actually taken as we were on our way out the door to the wedding from the hotel....I think. Then again her Niece Samantha took the picture so it could have been in the lobby or actually at the venue.

It was a great time and a great day, Michelle had a great time and I went back to the hotel early because this old fogy was getting a little bit tired. lol

Have yourselves a great day.

Happy Birthday Josh Nicholson

I would like to take this opportunity to wish my great nephew a very Happy Birthday today. Seems like it was only yesterday that he entered into this world. If my math is right, this would make this fine young man 14 years old today.

Val had a combination birthday party for Josh and Erica last month that we all went to and had a good time at.

If you happen to see Josh today, make sure that you take a little bit of time out and wish him a very Happy Birthday.

Happy Birthday Josh.

* Michelle will be visiting the orthopedic surgeon tomorrow for a followup for her wrist.
