Easter Sunday

Here I sit once again in a quiet household, I'm up early and I think BlacKKKlansman is playing on HBO on the Boob Tube Behind me. I'm not coherent enough to be paying attention.

I would like to wish everyone a Happy Easter today. It is the most honored time of the year for Christians (yes even moreso than Christmas) and is a celebration of Jesus raising from the tomb.

What it also means is then end to a 20 day streak of consecutive days worked for yours truly. I'm not going out today and Michelle and I rushed and made sure all of our shopping and chores were done yesterday so that we could enjoy the day today pretty much stress free. We're doing a small dinner here for us, but just basically going to take it easy and recharge today. A new streak starts tomorrow, but today I rest and relax.

I bought Michelle an Amazon Echo for Easter, we got it all hooked up last night and I think after seeing Jon and Laura's she wanted one, so I picked one up yesterday. We're still getting acclimated to it.

Have yourselves a great Easter.

Saturday Morning Rambling

Here I sit in a quiet household, nothing is on the Boob Tube as my Xfinity Box is starting to have trouble doing its daily reset again, but I have all my streaming stuff I could watch. Peanut is up and around as she always is, I sometimes wonder if she ever sleeps.

I'm working once again for RTI today, but this will be the end of my streak as tomorrow is Easter and I'm not knocking on anyone's door on Easter Day, it's a time of family and togetherness, not studies. I'm not going to make it 30+ days this quarter, but a 20 day run was a nice run. I am taking over a new segment where some travel is required, but that will be done on weekends and not during the week. This should give me a few more weeks worth of solid work to do this quarter, my segments are pretty much worked down to a point where it's just a bunch of busy work creating records of call to units that no one is ever home at.

Being tomorrow is Easter, Michelle and I are going to be busy with a number of other things like our weekly shopping. I would assume most grocery stores as well as WalMart are closed tomorrow, so we're planning on getting everything done today so we can just stay home and relax tomorrow. Michelle was a real trooper by mowing the grass Wednesday night before she left for Charleston, so I don't have to worry about that this weekend.

Have yourselves a great day today.

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.

First and foremost of all, today is Good Friday which means Sunday is Easter Sunday. This is the Holiest time of the year for those of the Christian faith. With that being said, I'm taking Sunday off and relaxing rather than bothering anyone showing up at their home.

Michelle is in Charleston right now. She went down yesterday for the Art Walk that she is coordinating and stayed there last night. She's just going to work out of the Charleston office today and will return home this afternoon. She will be coordinating this for her company once a month for the next few months. I know was excited about going down and staying, she is staying right across from the amphitheater on the river, so there will be some sights for her to briefly see.

Have yourselves a great day.

Photo Flashback Thursday


Once a week I like to take a little bit of time out and look through some of the pictures that I have either taken, scanned or stolen off of the internet through the years and find one special picture that stands out. Little lost moments in time from yesterday caught with a Cameras lens and relived right here in my blog. Sometimes it's pretty easy to find that one special picture and sometimes it's not that easy, one thing it consistently is however is a whole lot of fun.

This weeks pic is a picture of me and my old Boss, Dale owns Sextant Technical Services, whom I worked for for almost 9 years at NETL. Greatest Boss anyone could ever ask for and this picture was taken last year at the Jimmy Buffet Concert in Pittsburgh, we had both attended and he stopped over by our tailgate and we grabbed this picture together.

Speaking of Jimmy, I don't think he is coming to Pittsburgh again this year, he didn't show up 2 years ago, returned last year and this year seems to have scheduled everywhere but Pittsburgh.

Oh well, have yourselves a great day.

Deep Thoughts.

OK we have two days down this week, and two more ahead of us. Now it is time for me to put a little bit of thought into a midweek blog and see what I comes up. I usually pre-write my blogs on the weekend with such a busy schedule, but this one I do in non-sequential order and do it last so I can bear it out a little.

I often wonder to myself, what would my Grandparents think if they were alive today. Yeah I know they would have been proud of me, I take it one day at a time and look ahead on my career concentrating on the now and future, rather than reflect on what I have done.

What I am talking about is what would they think if they were given one day to come back to life, what would they think of the town that we live in is what I wonder.

Morgantown has changed an awful lot through the years, when they were both alive the Football Stadium was downtown, or in Grandma's case they were building the current stadium and it was not too far from opening up.

Can you imagine how dumbfounded they would be with the iPhone and what it does? Back in the 70's our phone was a rotary phone that hung on the wall. The music we played was on records or  8 track tapes. When we took pictures, it was with a camera and you had to take the film in to get developed. It may be a week before you ever saw your picture. And if you wanted information, Encyclopedia Britannica at the Library or school was my resource. That and all the Almanacs I used to collect. There was no face time and our phones had cords on them. Mail? It came in paper form in a mailbox and they was our primary way of getting information. We had I think a dozen or so TV Channels and we did get HBO and or Showtime late in their lives. Uncut movies where I could see naked boobies in my own home, unlike broadcast TV...lol

Have yourselves a great day.

Monday

Well that fun filled thing that we refer to as a weekend is now over with, time to stick our collective noses back onto the grindstone for another fun filled week of doing what it is that we do for a living.

Also if you have not filed your 2018 taxes, or owe a bunch of money like we did (I already paid mine), this is your last day to file or you will need to file an extension. This was a year that caught Michelle and I to a pretty large sum of money that the Government wanted even after we paid all our taxes this past year and both claim the single rate and 0 on our W-4 Forms. We got hit rather hard this tax season and it put a bit of a pinch on us. It's all behind us now as I wrote the checks last week and mailed them out.

Looking at our week ahead, Michelle is traveling for work on Thursday and will be staying in Charleston Thursday night. She's organizing some big charity thing that her company does in Charleston and she will be going down once a month for the next few months.

We do need to take Ice to the adjuster this week, Michelle was coming home from work last week and a car lost its tire and managed to hit three other Vehicles, our car being one of them. We got the police report and will be taking it to the adjuster Wednesday. Driver side passenger door took a bit of a dent, nothing too difficult for some professionals.

Have yourselves a great day

Sunday

Here I sit a little later than usual, I did manage to sleep in a little bit but I'm still up nice and early. The household is quiet still, as I am the first to awaken this morning. No idea what is playing on the boob tube, but it is on.

I had a pretty productive day working yesterday and holding down the fort as Michelle was up in Elwood City for a Birthday Party. Got another big day planned ahead of me today with some shopping and entering  a new segment that I could manage to knock out in one day hopefully.

I did manage to pre-write all my blogs for this coming week already, in an attempt to post one every day and having a busy schedule, that task sometimes gets tedious. I don't have the spare time now like I do when a quarter is winding down, so I have to make do and sit down and write the weekday blogs when the opportunity presents itself.

Have yourselves a great day today.

Saturday Morning Ramblings

Here I sit in a quiet household, Michelle is up in Ellwood City today for Maddy's Birthday and I'm here holding down the fort. Peanut is lurking around somewhere, Sophie is sleeping somewhere and Kiwi is sitting in her cage being good.

My day is obviously going to consist of me going out and doing some field work for RTI. I've got a good start to the quarter, I just need to keep it going and grab a few more interviews. I'll be working both today and tomorrow and am planning on taking next Sunday off, as it will be Easter Sunday and I think visiting people on this day would be detrimental to the effort at hand. 

The WVU Spring game is this afternoon, it's being streamed locally and will be on WBOY, only problem is that Comcast took away WBOY here in Monongalia County a couple of years ago so I won't be able to record it. I am a little curious as to what this season holds and how the team is progressing under new coach Neal Brown.

Have yourselves a great day today.

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 go back home this weekend to help Maddy Celebrate her birthday. I think she is as old as 2 now, 19 more years and she'll catch up to me.

Me? I'll be here in town doing more field work this weekend. My days are starting to run together, so one day is really no different than any other one, I just do different things on different days. Easter is coming up next weekend and that will break my streak of consecutive days worked.

Have yourselves a great day.

This weeks pic goes back to this past October, I had to travel to Las Vegas for work (so I did it on your dime, not mine).

I had walked down the strip to get a few pictures, this one was me standing in front of the Luxor as I walked up and down the strip. Actually there is an overhead tram that runs between the Luxor and Mandalay Bay and I started out at Mandalay Bay on this day. The previous day I went around the northern end of the strip and Ceasars Palace. It was a fun trip, I would love to go back again someday. Something tells me that there is something I'm developing at work that may just have me back out there some day.

Have yourselves a great day.

Hump Day

This is usually the hardest blog of the week to write about, but the past couple of weeks has been pretty easy to be honest with you.

I have changed it up a little the past couple of weeks. I usually write my blogs ahead of time in sequential order, this way I can concentrate on the things going on during the week rather than trying to put something down in the journal and taking away from more important issues.

The last couple of weeks however I've kind of bent my own rules and changed my own patterns a little. My Wednesday blog is the last blog I pre-write for the week and I've been giving my opinion a little more than just trying to fill space up on the page.

I have relaxed my rules a little bit and be myself a little more, but I still have my own standards. I just pick a topic and write about it, and it's usually my blog post that is the most in depth during the week.

I will say this past weekend I ran into a guy named Delmas Bowser at WalMart. Delmas was someone that I used to work with years ago at Sterling Faucet. Now there is a place that it seems like everyone in Morgantown used to work at, but it is now just a faded memory. Delmas and I worked together for about 7 years (I was there 8) before he left to seek employment at the University.

That got me to thinking, I wonder how many of my former Sterling Co-workers are still around Morgantown and alive and kicking. There is a few of us around, it's nice to run into people who used to be a part of your daily life 30 years ago.

Have a great day.

...Continued

When I say continued, I wish I were talking about my long extended weekend and time away from work, but alas I am talking about starting day 8 in a row and continuing my streak. It is however time to stick our noses back on the grindstone for another fun filled week of doing what it is we do for a living.

Looking at my week ahead, it will once again be busy. Michelle is going to be traveling for both work and pleasure over the next couple of weeks. This weekend she is traveling back home for Maddy's Birthday party and next week she is traveling to Charleston for work on Thursday and Friday.

Me, I'll be here working two jobs and holding down the fort for a few days as Michelle is away. That's OK, we can handle it, we are definitely a trooper and will take care of everything on the home front.

Have yourselves a great day.

Sunday Morning Rambling

Here I sit on a quiet Sunday morning, I guess you can call it the quiet before the storm. Peanut and I are up frolicking around, or should I say she is frolicking and I'm just sitting here, and we are both catching our thoughts for the day. 

It's going to be a busy day for me today, grocery shopping, home chores, sorting my meds, do finances and pay my taxes for 2018 (such sadness) and finally after all of that, I have to go out and work for RTI after I get all of that done. It's going to be a busy day to say the very least.

The NCAA Basketball Tournament now knows who the final two teams are, Texas Tech who we knocked out of the Big XII Tournament this year and Virginia who we beat here last season are the final two teams standing. Texas Tech is a Big XII team, so I am cheering for Texas Tech to win it all at this point.

Have yourselves a great day.

Happy Birthday Terri Rehmani

I would like to take this opportunity to wish my sister Terri a very Happy Birthday today.

We all managed to have a get together with her on Friday evening for her Birthday at Whitetail Crossing. Everyone had dinner and then they went in the back and enjoyed some local music as this older crowd went home and went to bed.

Terri is an amazing person, it was her that picked me up at the lowest point in my life and dusted me off and put me on the right path despite me having the fears that I had at that time.

Not sure if Nick has anything planned this today, as we all went out to dinner on Friday, but if you happen to see this amazing young lady today, make sure that you take a little time out and wish her a Happy Birthday.

Happy Birthday Terri.

Saturday Morning Ramblings

Here I sit in a quiet household yet once again, the sandman knocked me out first last night and I'm the first to recover from that knockout blow. I'm up watching something on HBO with Bruce Willis in it, playing with Peanut and collecting my thoughts for the day.

Michelle and I went out to Whitetail Crossing last night for dinner and to help my Sister Terri celebrate her birthday. We all got together and had dinner and spent a little time together, then almost everyone went in back to listen to Barefoot Colby play and Michelle and I being headed back home as we are both working today.

As I said, I'm out in the field today working for RTI. New quarter and new challenges, I went out a couple nights this week, but I'm most effective on weekends as I'm not worn out from working all day at my regular job, plus I can actually dress more comfortably on the weekends rather than being in business casual attire. Life is very busy for the next month or so for me, and that is an understatement.

Have yourselves a great day today.

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.

It has been a very busy week for me, but that doesn't mean that this week does not continue. It's just the end of the NETL work week for me, I will be working all weekend with my first available weekend for RTI of the quarter. In other words, it's the weekend, but only at one of my jobs, the other it's go time and there is no better time to find people home than the weekends.

I know they are having a birthday get together tonight at Whitetail Crossing (best Softball Sponsor in the Universe and they have great food) for my sister Terri. We may try to make it this evening, we have our Friday shopping to do and then it will depend on how we feel this evening. I'm usually beat by Friday afternoon/evening, and ready for bed, but we'll see how we feel this evening and may try to make an appearance.

Once a week I like to take a little bit of time out and look through some of the pictures that I have either taken, scanned or stolen off of the internet through the years and find one special picture that stands out. Little lost moments in time from yesterday caught with a Cameras lens and relived right here in my blog. Sometimes it's pretty easy to find that one special picture and sometimes it's not that easy, one thing it consistently is however is a whole lot of fun.

This weeks pic goes back about a decade, back to a time when Michelle and I had taken the day and decided to visit and tour the Friendship Hill, or as many of us know it as the Albert Gallatin House just across the state line in Pennsylvania.

This is a picture of me and a statue of Albert Gallatin, Michelle and I were out Geocaching on this day and I had my surveyors compass that I used to use when were were geocaching and we saw the statue of him using a larger version of the surveyors compass so we had to grab the shot.

We ended up doing the tour that day and will advise anyone who has never visited it to take a trip up and visit, it's not that far from here and the whole landscape of the property is breath taking.

Have yourselves a great day.

Hump Day

Here we go once again with what is traditionally my hardest blog of the week to write. One that is not a weekend blog, not a beginning or the end of a work week type blog and one that really doesn't have a theme. It's right smack in the middle of a work week and the one I have the least to talk about.

Today however due to what is going to happen at work is a little bit different for me. We are doing our emergency disaster simulation at the site, I'll be in the Command Center and have a front row seat for all of the days events and will be one of a handful of people that will be getting the big picture as to what is happening at the site today. It should be a memorable day for me.

With that being said, right now is a very good time for all of us to make sure that we are prepared in our own homes if Disaster Strikes. What would we need to do if a major disaster hit us right here in out homes. Here is a list of some things you may need to have ready or should have ready in case of this emergency.


  1. Water. You will need at least one gallon per person per day. It's good to have a three day supply for cooking and sanitation. 
  2. Food. Have at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food.
  3. Battery-powered or hand crank radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert
  4. Flashlight and batteries. 
  5. First aid kit
  6. Extra batteries, you can never have enough and only having the batteries.
  7. Whistle to signal for help
  8. Dust mask to help filter contaminated air and plastic sheeting and duct tape to shelter-in-place
  9. Moist towelettes, garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation
  10. Wrench or pliers to turn off utilities
  11. Manual can opener for food
  12. Local maps
  13. Cell phone with chargers and a backup battery 

Go to ready.gov to see what other steps you may need to take to be prepared in case of disaster, you may thank yourself later. 

Have a great day.

What an Honor

I just received some amazing news last night, something that is the cherry on top of my Softball career, I am going to be inducted to the 2020 Class of the Softball Hall of Fame.

I am actually dumbfounded by this honor, and I had absolutely no idea that I was even nominated for such an honor. It is truly humbling and my enshrinement will happen one year from today at the National Softball Hall of Fame in Quahog, Rhode Island.

I will be inducted by legendary Softball announcer Glenn Quagmire and it will be held at the Drunken Clam, home of the waterless urinals.

My career spanned from 1984 until 2008, then took a hiatus until 2015 when I came back to play in the old farts league.

During my career, I have had the honor of playing on TV once and the radio twice. The TV game was from 1986 or 1987, and I can't seem to remember if it was on ESPN or tape delayed channel 3 of the old Westover Cable. If memory serves me right, Andy Kaufman was the announcer for the game, he did so post mortem and hats off to him for doing that.

I hope your date is as fun as mine both this year and next year on this date.
