     I continued the philosophy work hard  , treat everyone with respect , and have fun !! Help promote the BANDS as much as possible and these are my basic ingredients to run a small dive bar that's been around a long time.

Work hard :

     Wheels ( my wife ) gets upset at me. She accuses me of one thing , " you only care about THE NAIL".  She is right.  If parties come around or social gatherings , I always say lets go and at the last second, I would  have to work on bands , websites , or ideas or head to the club. She would get upset and I would eventually go out , but I must drive her insane.  I have a sleep disorder. It's called sleep apnea. I sleep no more than 3 hours a day. I use it to my advantage. When I get up in the middle of the night I would start working on NAIL promotions , websites , and business. I eat, sleep, and think THE NAIL. If I had to guess why I am so passionate about being a tiny somewhat semi " successful " club.  It's probably because certain people were against us. They said it was a foolish idea and a saturated business. We would be throwing money away. I had to prove them wrong , not for their opinions , but for myself. One person does stick out .........Wheels and I were over a " friend's " house.  We'll call him " J ".   Having a couple of beers with some " friends ", we decided to tell everyone we bought The Nail.  J's brother-in-law, " T " , said " it is the worst business to get in and you will fail eventually" ( and this was a person that was successful and I respected back than). I will never ever ever forget that. Here we were ....proud owners of an established 60 year old nightclub that Wheels and I have been patronizing for 2 decades and now told we had absolutely no chance of making it.....not even a fake congratulations. He was the first of several to try to shoot our hopes down.  Every time someone projects negativity towards our bar..........I WORK EVEN HARDER THAN BEFORE................... RUDY of Notre Dame would shit his pants. We bought the club in January of 1997 and as of today , we have the longest tenure of ownership of any owner dating back to its opening day as " Humphs Bar " in 1948. This is a huge monumental enormous gigantic accomplishment since all employees bailed on us when times got tough. My claim to Un-fame......" In our first 2 years of ownership , we lost enough money to buy a house in Havertown." I had 4 jobs and Wheels had 3 to keep The Nail afloat. Our so called friends/employees did not know this. Wheels and I struggled for over 2 years working 60-65 hour work weeks while they got paid and our bills piled up like a mountain........you try it and see how long you last. We did it because we believed in the bar , the music , and ourselves. Yes we lost friends but true friends and family stuck with us. Little did we know the previous owner Mitch had Daddy buy him the bar as a college gift.  So the books looked outstanding without a MORTGAGE. We found out his numbers were all lies at the settlement table.  My famous antennas told me many times something was wrong , but we ended up driving the hard road. The quick story of the last owner and how we purchased The Nail. Wheels and I are sitting next to him at the bar one night. I say , " Hey Mitch , if you ever want to sell The Nail , Wheels and I would be interested. " He replies , " No , no , no , no , no I would never sell it. " He gets up and walks towards the front door. About midway he stops and comes right back to us and says , " Are you serious ? , we can meet tomorrow at Villanova Diner if you want ? "  Holy shit did my antennas go up , but they were so clouded by my overwhelming feeling that I could own the infamous Nail one day.  Anyway , back to the main story of employees and bailing friends. One old school employee left us because he wanted to get " out of the  business ". The next week he got a job at a another bar as a bartender......not so old school there.  These were the high hurdles Wheels and I had to endure.....day in and day out........by ourselves.   It was time to rebuild.

Treating people with respect :

     Its simple, treat people with some dignity , make some humor about myself ( usually about my penis size or sex life) and remove all angry people.........everybody should be treated the same. Saying jokes about myself makes people feel a little better about themselves and they say " you know what , I am not the only one that has money , health , or relationship problems.

Removing angry people:

      Major priority here......nothing worse than sitting next to a drunken idiot proclaiming all life's answers while he works at Burger King deep frying onion rings. A Havertown policeman once quoted to me...." we never get any calls at The Rusty Nail ".  I wonder how many bars can say that ?  It seems every weekend there are fights or altercations at other clubs.  This is our home and that's how we treat people. OUR ONE RULE , " GET IN A FIGHT......DONE FOR LIFE. "

Bands:

      When we started, I asked what can we do for the bands " promotionally " wise ?   The same old answer ," we did it all and nothing will help".  At the time, we were in 11 newspapers and had one generic monthly calendar.  So , one weekend, Wheels and I went up to our mountain house ( that we built with our own hands ) with "phonebooks" from all over the counties. We made a list of all the newspapers and internet companies.  I continue to make the list grow.  Now, we are in 56 newspapers ,.radio promos ,our websites (www.thenail1.com., Facebook/rustynail together average over 1500 " hits " a day....that's  unbelievable for such a small nightclub) ,.monthly calendars on time , new illuminated outdoor marquee sign., 35 internet companies , mailing list ,our own radio show since 2005 ,  and it goes on. We have quadrupled the band intake. We let bands network with each other by having up to 4 bands or more on the weekends. I remember a phone call I took in 1999.  The person said, " we played THE NAIL a couple a months ago, we brought alot of people, had fun , and would like another gig ".  I said to him, " you mean no one has called you since than ? "  Right there and than I took over the booking. I call all bands every Monday ( or Tuesday sometimes ) before and after they play here ( no other owner does this).   Treat bands with respect...they are the backbone of THE NAIL They are the ones working hard to bring people in, practicing, promoting ,and such....so, why the hell wouldn't I help them?  I refuse to be the owner that's all drunk behind the bar with a disgusted face saying " they did not bring a 100 people....... they're done".  I give out my home phone number (no other owner does this) to prevent frustrating phone tag and usually have 15-20 minute conversations with each individual band on the first phone call (no other owner does this) . I know if I was in a band, I would like a direct link to the owner and have a respectable conversation. I put myself in the shoes of the band and tell them how much we appreciate them.  We lend out our PA system to bands playing  "other " clubs for FREE ( what the hell other owner does this ? ). Several times with my van and easy pass (no other owner does this). We throw a huge "Wheelstock " party at our private vacation home that Wheels and I built ( 4 years to build ).........for 13 years it was completely free .... it was $20 for the last two years..... 330 people showed up last year ( damn hurricane ).....400 the year before ! Once again, a 4 day party and the NAIL supplies breakfast , lunch , dinner , beer , liquor , bands , and showers for everyone for 4 days ( show me one fucking owner that does this ??!!  Throws a party for 400 people for 4 days for fucking FREE ??!! ). We ended it in 2006 because of the incredible amount of time , effort , wear & tear on our home , & neighbors being super pissed at us. The main reason for stopping this party was 2 out of 3 people did not who Wheels or myself were. We walk around to 40-50 campsites and say thank you and people would say , " who the hell are you ? " Yep the WHEELSTOCK party got so big people attending were now friends of friends of friends of friends and had no clue this was a RUST Y NAIL party and US thanking people for their support over the years.

     Our website is updated & blogged every day under the " HISTORY " link , not one day ever missed....this includes weekends, holidays , and vacations. I talk about my life as if it were a soap opera (no other owner does this) and in this business it usually is , but mostly for entertainment though (doing this since day one of the takeover ) ( no other club owner does this ).   I could go on and on and on.......no one comes close. I do all this because we do not have the luxury of the " walk in " crowd.  We need the bands to work a little harder for us ,that's why I work 10 times harder than any other club owner.

     We have our own radio show since 2005.  All bands get plugs on our LIVE radio show. All bands do live interviews to promote ALL their shows and express their music and songs. What the hell other owners help promote other clubs ?  Everyone helps a little......we help more. 

     We hope you join our little family.........simply known as THE NAIL

  SUNDAY    10 - 31 - 21   HAPPY HALLOWEEN

 SO WHEN CAN A TOYOTA RAV BEAT A CORVETTE ?................

 WHEELS HEADS TO WALMART AND I HEAD TO THE NAIL.

 WE MEET BACK AT HOME AND BEGIN PACKING. IT NEVER FAILS WHEN IN A RUSH YOU ALWAYS FORGET SOMETHING. THIS IS INCLUDES WORK , TRAVEL , OR JUST GOING ANYWHERE. I FORGOT MY TOILETRIES AND ROKU.....BLOW.

 WE HEAD EAST WITH THE PUP. WE HIT SOME RAIN FOR ABOUT A 1/3 OF THE DRIVE. AFTER THAT.....COOL BLUE SKIES , SUNSHINE , AND CREATIVE CLOUDS.

 TALK TO A BROTHER ABOUT THE EAGLES. IT IS ALWAYS FUNNY WHEN THEY PLAY WELL THEY ARE GOING TO THE SUPER BOWL. WHEN THEY LOSE WE WATCH CURLING.

 A FAMILY MEMBER IS SIGNING A CONTRACTING JOB RIGHT NEAR OUR HOUSE. HE NEEDS MY HELP. WHAT IS IT ?.......A VEHICLE. ALL MY FAMILY HAVE OVER THE TOP SUPER SPORTY TOO EXPENSIVE HOT ROD CARS. THEY ARE TOTALLY DEPRECIATING AS SOON AS THEY LEAVE THE LOT AND FIT 2 PEOPLE WITH ENOUGH TRUNK SPACE FOR A SHOE. ME..........MINIVAN.....THAT I ONCE POOPED IN. SO I GET THE TEXT , " CAN I BORROW ONE OF YOUR CARS ? I HAVE A SIGNING NEAR YOU. " I REPLY , " DO YOU WANT THE MINIVAN THAT I POOPED IN OR THE JEEP WITH A LEAKY ROOF THAT I USED FLEX SEAL ON AND SOUNDS LIKE A MOTOR BOAT ? " HE PICKED THE JEEP. WHAT WAS THE REASON FOR CHOOSING MY GENERIC VEHICLE ? SO THE CUSTOMER WOULD NOT SEE HIM PULL UP IN A RITZY CORVETTE. I KEPT THINKING OF THE MOVIE " MONEY PIT " WITH TOM HANKS AND THE SONG PLAYING " I GOTTA BE MEEEEEE !!! " I CONCLUDED........MY MINIVAN FUCKING RULES. WHAT OTHER VEHICLE CAN YOU CARRY A SOFA , DRYWALL , AND TAKE A CRAP IN ?

 SPEAKING OF TOM HANKS WHO IS ARGUABLE THE MOST FAMOUS ACTOR ON EARTH. THERE WAS A WEDDING CEREMONY ON ABEACH. SO , MR. HANKS CRASHED IT FOR A COUPLE OF PICTURES AND SAY CONGRATULATIONS. THE PICTURES WENT VIRAL. THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE THOUGHT IT WAS SUPER COOL AND THE COUPLE WILL REMEMBER IT FOREVER ON THEIR SPECIAL DAY. OF COURSE , OUR WORLD HAS ASSHOLE PEOPLE IN IT THAT ALWAYS SEE THINGS DIFFERENT. ONE LADY SPEWED ANGER SAYING IT WAS NOT RIGHT FOR TOM HANKS TO CRASH THEIR SPECIAL TIME AND CEREMONY. WHAT A FUCKING WORLD.

 SPEAKING OF " WHAT A FUCKING WORLD " - I SEE A SOCIAL MEDIA POST OF A KID WITH CANCER PLAYING WITH A PUPPY IN HIS GURNEY BED. OVER 200K PEOPLE GAVE IT A " THUMBS UP ".  AROUND 150 PEOPLE GAVE IT A " THUMBS DOWN ". WHAT I LIKE TO KNOW WHO THE FUCK ARE THE 150 PEOPLE WHO GAVE A THUMBS DOWN TO A CANCER KID FUCKING PLAYING WITH A FUCKING PUPPY ???!!!

 WE SETTLE IN AND WALK THE PUP ON THE BEACH. IT'S FUCKING BEAUTIFUL HERE.

 BACK HOME WE WATCH THE PERFECT EAGLES GAME. FROM OFFENSE TO DEFENSE TO PLAY CALLING TO COACHING TO LIMITED PENALTIES. EVERYTHING WAS ABSOLUTELY PERFECT. THIS TEAM IS AWESOME. OH WAIT , THEY WERE PLAYING THE 0 - 7 LIONS. WE STILL BLOW.

 ASTROS WIN AND MOVE SERIES BACK TO HOUSTON DOWN 2 - 3. 

 FUCKING COWBOYS WIN WITHOUT STARTING QUARTERBACK ZAK ASS. C'MON VIKINGS !!

 WE TAKE THE PUP TO THE DOG PARK. ALWAYS A BLAST HERE. WE MEET SOME NICE PEOPLE AND A GIANT MASTIFF BLACK DOG THAT HAD DROOL HANGING 8 INCHES FROM BOTH SIDES OF HIS JAWS. I WOULD NEVER EVER GET A DOG LIKE THIS.....THOUGH THE DOG WAS SUPER COOL. ANOTHER WAS A HOUND DOG THAT BARKED AT THE MASTIFF FOR 30 MINUTES STRAIGHT.

 BACK HOME WHEELS GOES TO THE DOLLAR STORE. I WATCH SOME TV AND SOCIAL MEDIA STUFF.

 EACH VISIT WE ARE TRYING NEW RESTAURANTS OR PUBS. TONIGHT WE TRIED THE SALTY MERMAID ON ITS LAST NIGHT OPEN FOR THE SEASON. WHAT DO THEY DO WITH THE FOOD ? ANYWAY , THE DECOR IS TOP NOTCH MODERN WITH GLASS/MIRROR BAR , LARGE TV'S , MERMAID PICTURES , A SURF ROW BOAT ON THE CEILING , HEAVY ROPE CEILING LIGHTS , AND MORE ALONG THE BEACH-LIKE SCENERY. OUR WAITRESS WAS AN ADORABLE BLONDE 18 YEAR OLD. CHRIST , TO BE 18 AGAIN. SHE ALWAYS STOOD AT ARMS LENGTH AWAY FROM ME.  OH , THE FOOD WAS GOOD.

 OH , ONE MORE RESTAURANT STORY. I SAW M&M'S WHEN FIRST COMING IN. I ASSUME THEY WERE FOR KIDS WHO ATE THERE THIS HALLOWEEN NIGHT. THE GREETER WAS AT HER PODIUM SO I SAID TO MYSELF, " WHEN I LEAVE I AM SO GRABBING SOME M&M'S. " WE ARE LEAVING AND I DO NOT SEE THE GREETER LADY SO I GRAB LIKE 20 M&M BAGS OF CANDY.  I SPIN TOWARDS THE EXIT DOOR AND I SEE THE GREETER IS ACTUALLY BEHIND A HALF WALL READING A BOOK. SHE LOOKS AT ME WITH DISGUST........WHEELS DOES TOO.

 BACK HOME WE WATCH JEOPARDY , CELEBRITY WHEEL OF FORTUNE , TOM BRADY AND THE BUCS , AND AN EPISODE OF BIG SKY.

 WALK THE PUP LATE NIGHT ON THE BEACH. IT WAS A LITTLE CHILLY BUT ALWAYS COOL SIGHTS OF SAND , OCEAN , AND STARRY SKIES. ONE STAR WAS RED AND I HAD NO IDEA WHAT IT WAS....A SATELLITE ,  A PLANET , MY EYES , OR MAYBE A DISTANT PIZZA.

 TOOK A POT PILL AND OFF TO BED. THE PUP JOINED ME LATER.

 I TRIED TO STAY AWAKE FOR THE END OF THE COWASS GAME AND WORLD SERIES BUT JUST COULDN'T.

 BROTHER P AND BROTHER V ARE AT A JOB SITE. WE ARE PAINTING AND DOING DRYWALL. I HEAR COMMOTION OUTSIDE. I LOOK OUT A BAY WINDOW AND SEE A GUY DRESSED IN A HALLOWEEN COSTUME LIKE A ZOMBIE AND HE GETS SHOT. I SEE HIM FALL TO THE GROUND WITH BLOOD ON HIS CHEST. I YELL TO MY BROTHER , " CALL THE POLICE !  A ZOMBIE HAS BEEN SHOT. "..........dream ends.

  MONDAY     11 - 1 - 21

 AND JUST LIKE THAT IT'S NOVEMBER.

 ON THE BEACH AT SUNRISE AND TOOK PICTURES. THIS IS ALWAYS PEACE HEALING TO THE SOUL.

 AND JUST LIKE THAT A BAND HAS CANCELLED FOR A WEEKEND SHOW. THIS IS THE 7TH WEEKEND IN A ROW WHERE AT LEAST ONE BAND HAS CANCELLED. IT'S GETTING FRUSTRATING.

 IN NEW JERSEY I CAN PLAY POKER FOR REAL MONEY.  I ENTER A GAME AND THE 3RD HAND I GET POCKET BITCHES AKA QUEEN / QUEEN. A PLAYER RAISES TWICE THE BLIND , ANOTHER PLAYER CALLS , AND I RE-RAISE " ALL IN " WHICH IS 10 TIMES THE BLINDS. THE ORIGINAL RAISER FOLDS AND THE " CALLER " CALLS ME WITH JACK / TEN. HE HITS A 10 ON THE FLOP AND HITS ANOTHER 10 ON THE RIVER. I'M ELIMINATED. THIS IS WHY I CAN NEVER ENTER THE BIG TV TOURNAMENTS LIKE THE WORLD SERIES OF POKER BECAUSE LUCK IS SUCH A FACTOR AND I HAVE NONE. ACTUALLY , THE WORST LUCK EVER WHEN IT COMES TO GAMBLING. MAN , WAS I PISSED.

 FB MARKETPLACE BEACH PICTURE IS OFFICIALLY HUNG HERE. IT FITS PERFECTLY AND LOOKS NICE.

 SPENT A TOTAL OF 1 HOUR TRYING TO GET OUR SMART TV TO ACCESS NETFLIX AND SUCH. FOR 7 YEARS IT WOULD NOT WORK. WE ALWAYS USE A ROKU DEVICE. I HAVE HAD TECH FRIENDS AND COMCAST TECHS TRY TO FIX IT. I ACTUALLY CALL THE MANUFACTURER HISENSE. THEY TELL ME THE APPS ARE OUT DATED. I FIND THIS HARD TO BELIEVE AS I HUNG UP AND GOT THE STREAMING CHANNEL VUDU TO WORK.

 ON VUDU , I WATCH A MOVIE CALLED THE VILLAINESS. SPECIAL EFFECTS ARE VERY GOOD , SOME SCENES SHOT AT CRAZY ANGLES , BUT THE STORY LINE WAS VERY GOOD. I WAS ENTERTAINED.

 TAKE PUP TO THE DOG PARKKKKKKKKKK!!!  BOY DID SHE HAVE A GOOD TIME WITH 6 OTHER DOGS. ONE DOG ACTUALLY COULD OF BEEN HER SISTER. OUR PUP IS FROM WEST VIRGINIA. THIS DOG WAS FROM GEORGIA. THE OWNER AND SON COULD NOT BELIEVE HOW MUCH THEY LOOK AND ACTED ALIKE. I TOOK VIDEOS AND SENT THEM TO THE KIDS.

 STOP AND GET GAS AT A WAWA. NEW JERSEY PRICES ARE USUALLY ABOUT 10 - 15 CENTS CHEAPER.

 BACK HOME I CHILL AND GET GROUP BAND EMAILS DONE ALONG WITH OTHER COMPUTER STUFF.

 I WALK THE PUP AT LEAST 3 TIMES BEFORE 12 NOON.

 I ALSO HAVE BEEN COLLECTING SEASHELLS. THE LAST HUGE STORM THAT BROUGHT 70 MPH WINDS AND THE OCEAN CAME OVER THE FIRST WALL AND DUNE. IT BROUGHT ALL KINDS OF SHELLS ALL THE WAY TO THE DUNE FENCE. I USE THE SHELLS TO OUTLINE / BORDER OUR GARDENS AT HOME.

 76ERS WIN WITHOUT EMBIID AND HARRIS.  THEY ARE 3 - 0 ON THE HOME STAND SO FAR. I ACTUALLY STARTED LOOKING FOR TICKETS FOR EAGLES , FLYERS , AND 76ERS. I COULD BE TWISTED TO GO.....WHEELS WOULD NOT.

 THIS PLACE IS JUST NEVER OPEN. WE DRIVE BY THE WESTSIDE SALOON AND THERE ARE SOME INTERIOR LIGHTS ON BUT NO WINDOW BEER LIGHTS ON. WHEELS INSISTS I KNOCK ON THE FRONT CLOSED BOARDED DOOR.  THERE WAS NO ANSWER.

 WHEELS DRIVES UP A ONE WAY STREET , THAN MISSES A TURN , AND THAN MISSES A PARKING SPOT SHE THOUGHT WAS ILLEGAL. YES , THERE WERE SOME JOKES THROWN IN THERE.

 WE GO TO DOGTOOTH BAR & GRILLE. IT WAS VERY GOOD AND OUR WAITER TALKED FASTER THAN SPEEDY GONZALES. WE HAVE NOT BEEN HERE IN YEARS AND IT SEEMED ALL NEW DECORATIONS , FURNITURE , PAINTING , BAR , AND MORE. IT WAS WAY NICER THAN I REMEMBER.

 I WROTE ANOTHER REVIEW FOR THE WESTSIDE SALOON - " YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN THEY OPEN,  THE PHONE IS DISCONNECTED , BUT MAN IS THE FOOD AND SERVICE EXCELLENT. "

 BACK HOME I GAVE THE PUP SOME PEANUT BUTTER IN HER RUBBER BALL. SHE HAD A GOOD TIME WITH THAT. WHEELS WALKS HER TWICE.

 WE WATCH THE VOICE AND 76ERS. I TRIED TO STAY UP AS LONG AS I COULD FOR THE GOOD DOCTOR. I JUST COULDN'T DO IT.

 OFF TO BED WITH A POT PILL AND SLEPT OKAY. THE PUP SNUGGLED ALL NIGHT.

 A POTENTIAL BIG TUESDAY NIGHT METAL SHOW WILL HINDER MY STAY HERE.

  TUESDAY    11 - 2 - 21

 PRETTY DAMN COOL WHEN 70 PEOPLE SHOW UP AT YOUR LIVE MUSIC VENUE FOR A SHOW.  PRETTY.....DAMN......COOL. THE FACEBOOK POSTS AND COMMENTS ARE AWESOME !!

 SLEPT TO 8AM WHICH IS NICE. I TOSSED A LITTLE BIT BUT FOR THE MOST PART SLEPT DECENT.

 WALKED THE PUP ON THE BEACH AND I AM WAITING FOR THE SUNRISE. THERE IS CLOUD COVER ABOUT 20 FEET OVER THE OCEAN ( IN THE DISTANCE " 20 FEET " ) AND I AM THINKING , " HMMM....WHERE'S THE SUN ? " I GOOGLE ON MY CELL PHONE AND SUNRISE WAS 7:29AM. IT WAS 8:15AM. YEP , I WAS FOOLED.

 DO SOME ODD THINGS AND LOAD UP. I AM HEADING HOME FOR THE NAIL SHOW. WHEELS WILL CHILL HERE.

 OF COURSE , I MAKE A FB MARKETPLACE STOP NEAR THE CAPE MAY COURTHOUSE. A " LIKE-NEW " LAWN MOWER. I LIKE HAVING A BACK UP MOWER AND SINCE MY BACK-UP IS AT THE CONDO IN NEW JERSEY I NOW HAVE THIS ONE. FREE IS GOOD.

 MAKE GOOD TIME TAKING THE BACK WAY TO OUR HOME. I UNLOAD VERY QUICKLY ( 1 BIN.....NICE ) AND SETTLE IN NICELY.

 I DO ABOUT 10 THINGS AND NEED TO LAY DOWN. I WATCH AN EPISODE OF ALASKAN BUSH PEOPLE. THE PATRIARCH BILLY BROWN HAD PASSED. I HOWLED AS THE FAMILY HOWLED ON TV. IF YOU WATCH THE SHOW YOU WOULD KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS. IT WAS VERY SAD.

 OFF TO THE NAIL AND BEGIN VACUUMING AND MORE. I SPEND ABOUT 1 1/2 HOURS PREPPING. THAN......BANDS AND FANS ROLLED IN. HOLY CRAP , OVER 70 PEOPLE ON A TUESDAY NIGHT !!

 I HAD A VERY SICK 2ND BARTENDER SO I GAVE HER OFF. I LOVE SEEING HER BUT SHE WAS NOT FEELING WELL. I GOT LUCKY AS THE SHOW'S PROMOTER HELPED ME WITH RUNNING BANDS AND DOING THE DOOR. THIS GAVE ME TIME TO COOK FOOD ORDERS AND HELP THE MAIN BARTENDER WHO DID AN EXCELLENT JOB TONIGHT.

 THIS WAS ONE OF THE FASTEST MOVING NIGHTS OF A 4 BAND SHOW I CAN REMEMBER........AND EACH BAND HAD THEIR OWN DRUM KITS. IT WAS A METAL NIGHT WHICH NOT MIGHT BE MY CUP OF TEA BUT I SURE DID ENJOY IT. A BIG CROWD , MERCH TABLES FILLED , COOL BANDS , AND EVERYONE WAS HAVING FUN....EVEN THE MOSHERS. I GOT MORE THANK YOU'S THIS NIGHT THAN I CAN REMEMBER. IT WAS A NIGHT TO BE PROUD OF. ( I WILL NOT LET IT GO TO MY HEAD BECAUSE I KNOW IT IS A ROLLER COASTER RIDE IN THIS BIZ )

 I WAS TEXTING VIDEOS AND PICTURES ALL NIGHT TO THE OTHER BARTENDERS.

 I HAVE A NIGHT CAP AND CONTEMPLATE ABOUT DRIVING BACK TO NORTH WILDWOOD. I AM A MORNING PERSON SO I DECIDE TO HAVE SOME NIGHT CAPS WITH SOME PATRONS , THE PROMOTER , AND BARTENDER.

 IT WAS AN EXCELLENT NIGHT. I AM TELLING YOU SO MANY BAND MEMBERS AND FANS THANKED US ALL NIGHT AND AS THEY WERE LEAVING. WHAT A DAMN GOOD FEELING.

 I HEAD HOME AND TRY TO WATCH TV. IT ONLY TOOK 20 MINUTES FOR ME TO START FALLING ASLEEP. I HEAD TO BED.

  WEDNESDAY      11 - 3 - 21

 ROAD TRIP BACK............

  SLEPT GOOD AGAIN , WELL " MY GOOD " IS 2 STRAIGHT HOURS AT SOME TIME DURING THE NIGHT.

 WAITED TO 9:30AM AND HEADED BACK TO THE CONDO. I MADE GOOD TIME AND WAS GREETED WONDERFULLY BY WHEELS IN A SKIMPY NEGLIGEE. LOVE THAT ASS.

 OK , ACTUALLY THE GREETING WAS THE PUP WAGGING HER ASS AND TAIL AT 100 MPH. I THINK WIVES DO THAT STUFF...DON'T THEY ?

 SETTLE IN , UPDATE BLOG , SEND EMAILS , AND WALK THE PUP.

 BACK HOME I FIX A SHOWER CADDIE RADIO AND OUR THERMOSTAT WHICH JUST NEEDED A NEW BATTERY.

 OFF TO THE DOG PARK !!  I GOT THERE AND WE WERE THE ONLY ONES THERE. I FELT BAD FOR OUR PUP. BUT , IF YOU WAIT , THEY WILL COME. A TOTAL OF 6 OWNERS AND DOGS ENTERED AND BOY DID THEY HAVE FUN. I RE-MET A VERY NICE LADY BUILDING A HOUSE HERE. WE HAD ALOT IN COMMON.  SHE WAS COOL AS WE TALKED ABOUT NORMAL THINGS. I THINK SHE WANTED ME.

 BACK HOME I INSTALL THE ROKU AND WATCH A LIFE ON OUR PLANET HOSTED AND NARRATED BY DAVID ATTENBOROUGH. BOY IS IT DEPRESSING. HE SHOWS NATURE AND HOW IT HAS DECREASED INCREDIBLY OVER HIS LIFE OF 93 YEARS. BASICALLY PEOPLE TOTALLY FUCKED OUR PLANET. THE STATISTICS OF OCEANS RISING , ICE MELTING , FORESTS BEING LOST , AND ANIMAL NUMBERS DEPLETING IS UNBELIEVABLY EYE OPENING. HE TALKS OF SERIOUS GLOBAL WARMING WHICH WE ALL KNOW IS THE 7TH BIGGEST LIE EVER. GO TRUMP !!

  PLAYED A $15 POKER TOURNAMENT WITH 60 PLAYERS. TOP 8 CASH. OF COURSE I GET A HORRIBLE PAINFUL SUCK OUT. THE PAINFUL SCENARIO :

 - FIRST PLAYER RAISES , 2ND PLAYER CALLS , AND I CALL WITH ACE / 6. THE FLOP IS ACE - ACE - 7.  YEP , I FLOPPED TRIPS.

 - FIRST PLAYER BETS , 2ND PLAYER CALLS , AND I JUST FLAT CALL.

 - THE TURN --- A JACK --- FIRST PLAYER CHECKS , 2ND PLAYER CHECKS , AND I BET BIG. 1ST PLAYER FOLDS , 2ND PLAYER CALLS.

 - THE RIVER - A 10 -- I BET AND 2ND PLAYER RE-RAISES ME ALL-IN. I YELL OUT , " HE FUCKING STUCK AROUND WITH FUCKING KING / QUEEN ??!! " I AM POT COMMITTED AND HE REVEALS KING / QUEEN FOR A STRAIGHT. MY TRIPS MEAN DICK.

 WHEELS AND I HEAD TO THE SURFING PIG FOR DINNER ON THE WATER. WE WATCHED THE SUNSET AND CHILLED. OF COURSE I SENT PICTURES TO THE KIDS. IT WAS WONDERFUL.

 BACK HOME WE FACETIME WITH OUR YOUNGEST. ALWAYS A JOY.

 WE WATCH THE FINAL 2 EPISODES OF SEASON 2 OF TIN STAR. IT WAS GOOD.

 ON OCCASION I CRITICIZE WHEELS ON HER DRIVING ABILITIES. SHE PURPOSELY WENT DOWN A ONE WAY STREET SO I WOULD TAKE OVER DRIVING. WELL , I THINK SHE DID IT ON PURPOSE. NOW ALL DRIVING DUTI4S ARE MINE. SHE TOTALLY DID IT ON PURPOSE.

 OFF TO BED WITH THE PUP.

 76ERS WITH ANOTHER SOLID WIN....THOUGH THEY GAVE UP A 19 POINT LEAD.

  THURSDAY         11 - 4 - 21

  WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH ME FEET ?..................

  WELP , ON THE ROAD AGAIN AND I DON'T LIKE IT. BUT DUTY CALLS.

 MAKE GOOD TIME HOME. IT REALLY IS A PERFECT TIME TO TRAVEL.............10:30AM-ISH......MID WEEK.

 FB MARKET PLACE STRIKES AGAIN. I ONLY HAD ONE PROBLEM WITH THIS VERY CUTE YOUNG ASIAN GIRL. SHE GAVE ME AN ADDRESS AND NOT THE APARTMENT BUILDING NAME. THE HUGE COMPLEX IS LITERALLY 1/2 MILE FROM OUR HOUSE. I GOT SPUN AROUND WITH MY GPS AND THAN REALIZE , " OHHH , THAT'S WHERE IT IS. ". I WAS KINDA MAD WHEN I ARRIVED AND THAN I SAW HER IN SHORT SHORTS RUNNING TO MY VAN. THE ANGER LEFT IMMEDIATELY AND THE FANTASY STARTED.  I HOPED SHE JUMP IN THE VAN. SHE DID HAND ME A BAG OF BRAND NEW STILL IN THE BOX 50' OF L.E..D LIGHTS. WATCHING HER WALK AWAY AND ME THINKING , " SHE WON'T BE COMING BACK " WAS ANOTHER REALITY SLAP THAT I AM FAT AND LOOK LIKE DOCTOR PHIL HAD A KID WITH FREE WILLY.

 GOING TO SELL A POWER WASHER I GOT FOR FREE. I PUT SOME TIME INTO IT AND JUST TOO MANY LEAKS. IT'S VERY FIXABLE AND THE ENGINE IS IN PERFECT SHAPE. 

  WE SETTLE IN AND BEGIN MY BAND AND NAIL WORK. I DID GET A REPLACEMENT BAND FOR SATURDAY.....DOG HOUSE. IT IS 7 STRAIGHT WEEKS OF AT LEAST ONE BAND CANCELLING AND 7 STRAIGHT WEEKS OF REPLACING THEM. THANK YOU FACEBOOK.

 MY FEET SEEM TO HURT ALL THE TIME. THAN I NOTICED SOMETHING ABOUT THE WEAR & TEAR ON MY SNEAKERS. THEY F'N WEAR ON AN EXTREME ANGLE......AND IT'S MY LEFT FOOT ONLY. WHAT THE FUCK ? IT'S LIKE I AM WALKING ON A SIDE OF A HILL THE WHOLE TIME.

 I DID SLEEP DECENT AGAIN BUT IT WAS A LONG DAY. I CONTINUE THE NO BRANDY AT NIGHT.

 ROLL TO THE NAIL AND BEGIN TO SET UP THE DRUM KIT ( IT REALLY LOOKS GOOD ) AND BONGOS. I AM ACTUALLY PROUD OF OUR HOUSE DRUM KIT NOW. GOT THANK " M " FOR HELPING ME EACH WEEK. I CAN BUILD A HOUSE BUT CAN'T PUT A KIT TOGETHER YET.

 I FIGHT THE DRAFT SYSTEM ALL NIGHT. I CAN NOT GET THE TEMPERATURE TO RAISE. THEY JUST KEEP DROPPING WHICH FREEZES OUR BEER LINES. THIS CAN'T BE GOOD.

 SLOW NIGHT STARTING BUT IT PICKED UP. I ACTUALLY HAD A GOOD TIME. SOME NEW FACES , SOME OLD FRIEND'S SISTER ( WANTS A BARTENDING JOB ) , AND SOME FUN MUSICIANS.

 THE FRIEND'S SISTER CAME IN WITH EXPERIENCE BARTENDING. HER AND HER DAD STOPPED IN...BUT REALLY LOOKING FOR A JOB WHICH WAS OK WITH ME. THE FATHER ORDERED A MANHATTAN AND OTHER NON-NAIL DRINKS ( I THINK ON PURPOSE ). FINALLY I ASKED THE DAUGHTER TO COME BEHIND THE BAR AND MAKE IT. I WAS A LITTLE EMBARRASSED WE DID NOT HAVE THE INGREDIENTS TO MAKE A RUSTY NAIL. I CAN ONLY REMEMBER 2 EVER BEING ORDERED HERE. I DID LIKE HER.

 THE NIGHT MOVED ALONG AND WE WATCHED THE FLYERS COME BACK TO TIE THE PENGUINS BUT ONLY TO LOSE IN OVERTIME.......BLOW.

 COLTS AND WENTZ WIN. THIS IS GOOD WENTZ KEEPS PLAYING. THOUGH I THINK WE WANT HIM TO PLAY BUT NOT WIN....TO GET AN EXTRA DRAFT PICK FOR THE EAGLES.

 BACK HOME I WATCH TV WITH MY ELDEST. I HANG ABOUT AN HOUR AND HEAD TO BED. THE PUP JOINS ME LATER AT 3AM.

 FRIDAY    11 - 5 - 21

 THINGS THAT HAPPEN TO ME IN ONE DAY :

 - GOT A FREE POWER WASHER BUT COULD NOT FIX 3 LEAKS ON IT ( WELL , I DIDN'T WANT TO ). I SOLD IT ON FB MARKETPLACE IN 11 MINUTES. OVER 20 INQUIRES. WHEELS SAID I SHOULD OF ASKED FOR MORE. THE GUY WHO PICKED IT UP WAS A MECHANIC AND ON THE BACK OF HIS TRUCK --- " TRUMP 2024 !!! ".....YEP. I ASKED , " DO YOU WANT ME TO WEAR A MASK WHILE WE TALK ? " HE RESPONDS , " NO , I DON'T LIVE IN FEAR. "

 - WHEELS IS ALWAYS RIGHT....EVERY TIME. I TELL HER I NEED TO GET A JACUZZI PART FOR A LEAK. I SAY , " I AM GOING TO THE KING OF PRUSSIA STORE." SHE REPLIES , " YOU SHOULD GO TO THE BROOMALL STORE. SHE SAID IT TWICE. I WAS JUST ONLINE AND MY " HOME " STORE IS KING OF PRUSSIA AND IT SAID 14 ARE IN STOCK. SHE SAYS , " OK ". I DRIVE TO KING OF PRUSSIA STORE AND A NICE WOMAN SCANS FOR THE PRODUCT. SHE SCANS AND SAYS , " WE HAVE NONE HERE BUT THE BROOMALL STORE HAS 14. " OH......MY......GOD.

 - WE MAY BUY A VERY USED CAR FOR OUR ELDEST. THE SALES LADY SAYS , " I HAVE NEVER DONE THAT BEFORE ". IT'S A LONG STORY I WON'T GET INTO BUT I SAID TO HER , " BOY IF THAT AIN'T MY MOTTO IN LIFE.......IN ALL MY YEARS I HAVE NEVER SEEN THAT BEFORE. "

 - HEAD TO THE NAIL AND PREP FOR THE NIGHT. A BAND ARRIVES VERY EARLY TO DO A VIDEO SHOOT. BEFORE THEY ARRIVED I GOT SOME THINGS DONE.

 - I INSTALLED THE NEW L.E.D. LIGHTS ON OUR STAGE. THEY BLINK TO THE SOUND OF SPEECH OR MUSIC. I MADE A VIDEO AND SENT IT OUT TO 6 BARTENDERS AND FAMILY TO GET THEIR OPINIONS. THE CONSENSUS....THEY ARE COOL.

 - ON TOP OF THE WALK-IN FRIDGE I SECURE A COMPRESSOR THAT WAS SIDEWAYS FOR ALMOST 3 MONTHS. I MESSAGE OUR TECH AND HE ACTUALLY ANSWERS. THERE IS A CHANCE HE WILL COME TOMORROW. I ALWAYS THINK OF THE MOVIE THE MONEY PIT....." YOUR NUMBER CAME UP !! WE WORK TOMORROW !! " ANYWAY , OUR BEER LINES ARE FREEZING.

 - 1ST BAND - A GUY ACTS AS A SINGER FROM ENGLAND. HE SAYS HIS NAME OVER 100 TIMES IN THE FIRST 3 SONGS ( JIM E. BROWN ) AND SAYS HE IS AN OBESE ALCOHOLIC. THIS COMEDIC ROCK BAND WAS HIT OR MISS WITH THE CROWD. I LIKED THE ACT AND THOUGHT IT WAS ENTERTAINING. ONE BARTENDER LOVED HIM.

 - 2ND BAND - HAD A MENTALLY CHALLENGED LEAD SINGER. I NEVER HAVE SEEN OR HEARD THIS. THE BAND WAS ACTUALLY GOOD. THE LEAD SINGER WAS COOL AND THE NICEST PERSON.

 - 3RD BAND - A FUN ORIGINAL MUSIC ACT THAT BROUGHT IN THE MOST PEOPLE. IN FACT....TOO MANY PEOPLE. WHY TOO MANY ? THERE WAS ALREADY A LARGE CROWD OF 70+ WHEN A GROUP OF 10 KIDS TRY TO ENTER. I AM  THINKING , " THIS IS COOL....MORE MUSIC FANS ". BUT THAN I SEE THEIR YOUNG.....CRAP. MOST ARE YOUNG GIRLS AND I ASK , " PLEASE HAVE YOUR I.D. READY. THIS IS AN OVER 21 SHOW. " THE LEAD ALPHA OF THE PACK GIVES ME HIS DRIVER'S LICENSE. IT SAYS HE'S 19. WELP , A LESSON OF WHY WE DO NOT ALLOW UNDERAGE KIDS IN OUR BAR ENSUED FRO 10 MINUTES. OVER AND OVER I HAD TO EXPLAIN IT TO HIM AND HIS FRIENDS. THE PARENTS WERE INSIDE AND CAME OUT TO DEFUSE THE SITUATION......THOUGH IT WAS NEVER HEATED. AT LEAST I WASN'T.

 - 4TH BAND - OUROBOROS HAS PLAYED HERE AND ALWAYS PUTS ON A GOOD SHOW.

 - ONE TALL GIRL ( LIKE 6'4" WITH SUPER HIGH HEELS ) WAS MY FAVORITE. SHE HAD TIGHT BLACK LEATHER PANTS ON AND DANCED TO EVERYTHING. SO , WITH THE HELP OUR OUR BARTENDER AND HER SPOTIFY ACCOUNT WE PLAYED SOME OF THE FUNNEST MUSIC BETWEEN BANDS TO KEEP HER DANCING.

 - A GUY SLIPS HIS CREDIT CARD RECEIPT TO A BARTENDER WITH $40 TIP UNDERNEATH.....AND A PHONE NUMBER.

 - THE BARTENDERS DID EXCELLENT........AGAIN.

 - THE NIGHT ROLLS PERFECTLY AND WE END THE SHOW AROUND 11:40PM. BY 12:40AM WE WERE ON THE ROAD BACK TO CENTER CITY TO DROP OFF THE BARTENDERS.

 - I UPPED OUR DEAL TO FREE FRENCH FRIES AND CHOCOLATE FROSTIES AT WENDY'S FROM 2 CARS IN LINE TO THREE. IF LESS THAN 3 CARS ARE IN THE DRIVE-THRU WE WOULD STOP. UNFORTUNATELY , WE ARE 0 - 8. THERE WERE 11 CARS IN LINE AT 1AM......UNBELIEVABLE.

 - WE MAKE EXCELLENT TIME AND I HEAD HOME. THEY DO UNLOAD 9 CHAIRS AND A TABLE WE LENT THEM FOR A BLOCK PARTY NEXT WEEK.

 - AT HOME I CHILL WITH OUR ELDEST. I HOUSED A CONTAINER OF GUACAMOLE.

 OFF TO BED AND SLEPT GOOD....AGAIN.

  SATURDAY      11 - 6 - 21

 DOG HOUSE BAND - " BEST SHOW IN A LONG TIME. THANK YOU RUSTY NAIL !!! " YEAH , THAT FB POST FELT GOOD.

 FB MARKETPLACE.....AGAIN - I VISITED A VERY NICE WOMAN OFF WEST CHESTER PIKE. SHE WAS SELLING HER HOUSE AND MOVING TO NEW YORK. EVERY ITEM WAS FREE - A NEW PLUNGER ( YEP , WE WERE LOOKING FOR ONE ) , AN ART EASEL , WD-40 , CLEANING SUPPLIES , NEW LAUNDRY BASKET , WICKER BASKET , DOUBLE SIDED TAPE , CANDLES , CROCK POT , HARDWARE STUFF , LIGHT BULBS , AND ABOUT 10 OTHER THINGS.

 NEXT STOP THE NAIL -  FRIDGE TECH WAS A NO-SHOW DUE TO HIM HURTING HIMSELF. I'VE BEEN FIGHTING THIS DAMN WALK-IN FRIDGE AND DRAFT SYSTEM FOR 3 MONTHS. I GOT OTHER THINGS DONE FOR ABOUT 90 MINUTES.

 BACK HOME I SETTLE IN AND WATCH PENN STATE , DO COMPUTER STUFF , AND PLAY A GAME OF POKER. I WANTED TO SETTLE IN A BIT FOR IT WILL BE A LONG NIGHT.

 A NEIGHBOR WORKS FOR A LOCAL RESTAURANT. SHE STOPS BY AND DROPS OFF MIS-ORDERS. THE ITALIAN FOOD WAS GOOD.

 ELDEST FEELING BETTER AND HEADS TO HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL GAME.

 WHEELS WALKS THE PUP.

  MOTHER-IN-LAW STOPS BY WITH EXTRA CLOTHES AND JEWELRY FROM THE 1960'S FOR THE KIDS.

 I HEAD TO THE NAIL TO PREP AGAIN AND LOAD-IN ACTS AND BANDS. A MISCOMMUNICATION ALMOST CANCELLED THE SHOW BUT I ADAPTED. OVER 80 PEOPLE SHOWED UP. I HAD TO CALL IN HELP.

 I HAD A BLAST WORKING WITH THE BARTENDER. THE SHOW MOVED PERFECTLY AND THE MUSIC BETWEEN BANDS WAS FUN.

 END OF THE NIGHT A GUY LET'S US USE HIS NIGHT VISION GOGGLES. I HAD OUR BARTENDER GO ON THE STAGE AND WE CLOSED ALL LIGHTS. SHE PUT UP FINGERS AND I GUESSED IT. SHE DID THE SAME WITH ME.....PRETTY COOL. HE SAYS HE USES THEM WHEN DRIVING AT NIGHT......SMART IDEA. IT IS LIKE DAY LIGHT AT NIGHT....VIA THESE GLASSES.

 I ALWAYS SAYS THERE IS ONE NUDGE EACH NIGHT. IT HAPPENED AFTER WE CLOSED. A LOCAL GUY BANGED ON OUR FRONT DOOR FOR 5 MINUTES. LIGHTS ARE OFF AND DOOR IS LOCKED. I FINALLY ANSWERED THINKING A BAND FORGOT A PIECE OF EQUIPMENT. NOPE.....HE WANTED A BEER AT 1AM. I GOT MAD AT HIM AND ASKED HIM TO " BACK UP " WHEN HE TRIED TO STEP BY ME AT THE DOOR...........CHRISSY ALMOST GO CODE REDDY.

 AN OLDER EXPERIENCED BAND MEMBER WAS IN HIS GLORY AFTER HIS BAND'S SET. GROUPS OF FANS WERE ASKING TO TAKE PICTURES WITH HIM.  THAT IS A ROCK STAR FEELING.

 DRIVE TO MCDONALDS AND WENDY'S....PACKED. I DID NOT WAIT.    0 - 9.

 WE SEE OUR ELDEST IN LINE AT A LOCAL PUP. WE STOP AND SAY HELLO.

 BACK AT THE HOUSE I SET UP THE FIRE PIT , SOME MUSIC , CHAIRS , BLANKETS , LIGHTING , AND SIT WITH MY YOUNGEST. IT WAS WONDERFUL. THAN , MY ELDEST CAME WITH DRUNK FRIENDS.

 DRUNK FRIEND - CAN I HAVE A BEER ? HE HAS PEED 3 TIMES IN OUR BACK YARD IN UNDER 30 MINUTES. I SAY YES IF YOUR ARE NOT DRIVING. I SAY , " GET 4 BEERS FROM OUR FRIDGE.....4 BEERS. NO LESS , NO MORE......4 BEERS. " HE COMES BACK WITH 3. 

 OFF TO BED AT 2AM. VERY GOOD WINS FOR FLYERS , 76ERS , AND PENN STATE.

  SUNDAY      11 - 7 - 21

  WELP , THAT WAS 3 HOURS OF TIME LOST..........................

  THIS WEEKEND WAS A BLAST. I STARTED THIS MORNING EARLY AND WAS AT THE NAIL SETTING UP FOR LIVE AT THE NAIL RADIO " TEST " SHOW. WE HAVE NOT BEEN AIRED SINCE SEPTEMBER OF 2019. I BEGAN PREPPING AND OUR ENGINEER MET ME AT 11AM. WHILE HE DOWNLOADED THE PROGRAMS TO RE-FAMILIARIZE HOW WE AIR THE SHOW I STARTED CLEANING AND PREPPING FOR TONIGHT.

 THREE HOURS LATER WE KEPT RUNNING INTO RECORDING AND SOUND ISSUES. WE HAD THIS PROBLEM A COUPLE OF TIMES BEFORE BUT THIS TIME WE RAN OUT OF STEAM. WE ROLLED OUT AND I JUST TOOK MY COMPUTER. I LEFT EVERYTHING ELSE THERE.

 OUR A/C TECH IS STILL HURT SO I HAVE TO KEEP FIGHTING THE DRAFT SYSTEM GETTING TOO COLD.

BACK HOME I HELP LOAD OUR VAN. WE HEAD TO CENTER CITY TO DROP OFF OUR YOUNGEST ALONG WITH HER FREE FB MARKETPLACE STUFF......EASEL , CANDLE , AND CROCK POT ALONG WITH OTHER STUFF. SHE ALSO TOLD ME THEY STAYED UP TO 4AM WITH THE FIRE PIT AND SHOOTING POOL.

 WHEELS AND I HEAD EAST. WE TALK , LAUGH , AND LISTEN TO SPOTIFY MUSIC.

 WE MAKE GREAT TIME AND IT IS BEAUTIFUL HERE. WE SETTLE IN AND WATCH THE FIRST HALF OF THE EAGLES. IT WAS A COMPETITIVE GAME AND THE EAGLES WERE ACTUALLY WINNING BY 1 POINT AT THE END OF 2 QUARTERS. BUT WE KNOW AS PHILLY FANS THIS WILL END IN HEART BREAK.

 DALLAS LOSING DID HELP A LITTLE.

 OFF TO WESTSIDE SALOON.....FINALLY !! I BELIEVE WE WERE 0 - 5 IN STOPPING BY BUT I SAW A FACEBOOK POST ( BEST EVER SOCIAL MEDIA ) AND SAW THEY ARE OPEN FRIDAY TO SUNDAY. I HAD TO GO THERE.

 WITH FRIENDS/NEIGHBORS WE DRIVE TO THE WESTSIDE SALOON. I KNEW WE HAD TO GO BEFORE OR AFTER THE GAME TO GET A SEAT. THE PLACE IS JUST TOO POPULAR AND THE FOOD IS PRETTY GOOD TOO. WE ARRIVE AT THE SALOON IS FULL. WE DO GET SEATS ALONG THE WALL WITH SMALL TABLES WHICH I WAS COOL WITH.

 WE WATCH THE 2ND HALF OF THE GAME AND OF COURSE THE EAGLES LOSE ON A LAST SECOND FIELD GOAL. IT WAS SO FRUSTRATING BECAUSE THE CHARGERS NEVER USED THEIR PUNTER. WE DID NOT STOP THE OFFENSE ONCE IN THE 2ND HALF......BLOW.

 I ORDERED A BURGER AND SHRIMP/SCALLOPP POT STICKERS. BOTH WERE EXCELLENT. I WAS SO GLAD WE FINALLY GOT TO CHILL HERE , HAVE SOME PRETTY GOOD FOOD , AND HAVE SOME FUN. WE MET A GIRL AND HUSBAND FROM THE DOG PARK WHICH I JUST HAPPENED TO BE TALKING ABOUT ON THE WAY HERE BECAUSE SHE WAS BUILDING A HOME IN WEST WILDWOOD. THIS BAR IS SIMILAR TO THE NAIL IN WAYS. PEOPLE WERE COOL AND I GOT TO MEET SOME OF THEM. ONE GUY WHO HAD A BELLY LAUGH AND YELLED AT THE TV REMINDED ME OF A REGULAR AT THE NAIL NAMED " BUBBLES ".

 SOMETIMES I THINK ABOUT THE REGULARS WHO CAME TO THE NAIL AND ALL WHO ATTENDED SO MANY WHEELSTOCKS.....WHERE ARE THEY NOW ? YOU THINK THEY STOP IN ONCE A YEAR OR EVERY OTHER YEAR JUST TO SAY HELLO. I GUESS PEOPLE MOVE ON IN LIFE. OH , WHEELSTOCKS WERE ANNUAL FREE WEEKEND HUGE PARTIES AT OUR MOUNTAIN HOME WITH FREE BEER ( 30 HALF KEGS )  , FREE FOOD ( BREAKFAST , LUNCH , AND DINNER ) , FREE BOOZE ( OVER 30 CASES OF ALCOHOL ) , FREE BANDS ( USUALLY 12 TOTAL ) , FREE FIREWORKS , AND CAMPFIRES AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE. THE LAST WHEELSTOCK IN 2006 HAD 436 PEOPLE ATTEND. OUT OF THOSE 436 PEOPLE ATTENDING MAYBE 20 HAVE STOPPED BY THE NAIL SINCE. MANY CALLED WHEELSTOCK THE GREATEST ANNUAL PARTY THEY EVER ATTENDED.

 I HAD A REALLY GOOD TIME AT THIS LOCAL PUB. BACK HOME WE SETTLE IN AND WATCH 2 EPISODES OF VIRGIN RIVER.......EH.

 MONDAY     11 - 8 - 21

 NOTHING LIKE WAKING UP TUESDAY MORNING AND FINDING OUT THE WHOLE EAST COAST AND FAIR AMOUNTS OF AMERICA IS SHUT DOWN VIA INTERNET AND CELL PHONE. THIS IS HUGE. YEP , I HAVE TO GUESS SOMEONE SUPER HACKED COMCAST. IT WAS ALMOST APOCALYPTIC IN A WAY......THINK SKY NET / TERMINATOR. WHEELS AND I KNOCKED ON OUR NEIGHBOR'S DOOR TO SEE IF WE COULD USE THEIR INTERNET. SHE TOLD US THE WHOLE EAST COAST IS DOWN. LUCKILY , HER PHONE WAS A T-MOBILE ACCOUNT SO SHE COULD MAKE PHONE CALLS , TEXTS , AND GET UPDATES FORM HER HUSBAND.

  SO HERE'S THE DAY.

 ABSOLUTELY MAGNIFICENT HERE. AT 8AM IT IS 70 DEGREES. A PICTURE PERFECT MORNING TO WALK THE PUP AND ENJOY THE SIGHTS AND SOUNDS OF THE BEACH AND OCEAN. EVERYDAY THERE ARE A FAIR AMOUNT OF SURFERS. I TOOK SOME PICTURES AND SENT THEM TO THE KIDS.

 SECURED A COFFEE TABLE AND CAULKED IT.

 CLEANED THE FRONT WINDOWS AND SCREENS.

 TAKE THE PUP TO THE DOG PARK AND MEET UP WITH PEOPLE THAT WERE AT THE WESTSIDE SALOON LAST NIGHT. WE TALKED BUILDING HOMES. I HUNG OUT LONGER BECAUSE THIS REALLY NICE 82 YEAR OLD ARMY VETERAN CAME IN WITH HIS 11 YEAR OLD DOG. THE DOG JUST WANTED TO BE PETTED THE WHOLE TIME SO OBLIGED. I ASKED QUESTIONS TO THE OLD VETERAN ABOUT HIS DAY WITH COSTS , FOOD , AND LIFE STYLE OF LIVING. I DO THIS OFTEN WITH OUR OLDER GENERATION. I LIKE SEEING THEM SMILE AND THINK OF THE " OLD " DAYS. TO ME , IT KINDA GETS THEIR BRAIN ACTIVITY EXCITED AGAIN.

 STOP AT BILL'S CORNER DELI FOR LUNCH. WE GOT A TURKEY GRINDER AND CHEESESTEAK WITH ONIONS & MUSHROOMS. THE REVIEWS WERE EXCELLENT. MY REVIEWS.........GOOD. I THINK NEW JERSEY PEOPLE REALLY DO NOT KNOW THE LUXURY US PHILADELPHIANS HAVE WHEN IT COMES TO OUTSTANDING HOAGIES AND SANDWICHES.

 I USE A COUPLE OF HOURS TO MAKE PHONE CALLS , GROUP EMAILS TO BANDS THIS WEEKEND , AND THANK BANDS FOR PLAYING LAST WEEKEND. I DO THIS EVERY MONDAY.

 THE CONCERT WHERE 8 PEOPLE GOT CRUSHED AND DIED ALONG WITH HUNDREDS INJURED.....SHOULD JUST NOT HAPPEN EVER.

 A WONDERFUL SPEECH BY FORMER PRESIDENT OBAMA ABOUT GLOBAL WARMING. IT WAS IN SCOTLAND. PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYS IT IS THE 7TH BIGGEST LIE IN AMERICAN HISTORY.  I THOUGHT IT WAS PROFESSIONAL , INSIGHTFUL , FLUID , INTELLIGENT , AND A WONDERFUL PRESENTATION ON THIS FAKE WARMING OF OUR PLANET. GO TRUMP !!

 I TRY TO USE A SUCTION CUP TO POP UP DENTS ON OUR VAN......DIDN'T REALLY WORK.

 ASK A NIECE FOR SUGGESTIONS ON VAPING PRODUCTS. SHE IS ON THE WEST COAST.

 THE VETERAN AT THE DOG PARK GAVE ME A SUGGESTION FOR AN ITALIAN RESTAURANT BUT HE DID NOT KNOW THE NAME BUT HE DID KNOW THE AREA.

 I GOOGLE RESTAURANTS THE OLD VETERAN SUGGESTED. WE TAKE A RIDE TO CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE AREA. LET ME TELL YOU THEY HAVE A FAIR AMOUNT OF EATERIES IN THIS AREA. WE DROVE BY ONE AND I ACTUALLY THOUGHT IT WAS A CAR DEALERSHIP. THERE WERE THAT MANY PEOPLE THERE.

 WE END UP GOING TO THE BELLEVUE TAVERN BECAUSE THE PARKING LOT IS PACKED AND IT WAS ONE OF THE THREE I PICKED VIA THE OLD VETERAN SUGGESTED AREAS. THIS WAS THE CLOSEST TO A WAWA WHICH HE SAID , " IT IS RIGHT PAST A WAWA. ". WHEN PARKING I ASKED WHEELS TO WALK AROUND THE CORNER JUST TO PEEK IN AT ANOTHER CAFE.

 INSIDE THE BELLEVUE TAVERN THE BAR AND ALL BOOTHS ARE FILLED EXCEPT ONE TABLE. APPARENTLY IT IS BUSY EVERY NIGHT SO I FEEL WE DEFINITELY MADE THE RIGHT CHOICE. THE HOSTESS WALKED US TO A BACK AREA WITH JUST 2 TABLES. AS WHEELS SAID ( AND MADE ME LAUGH ) , " IT LOOKED LIKE THE KIDDIE TABLES ". I INSTANTLY ASKED THE HOSTESS TO SEAT US AT THE REMAINING BOOTH. SHE TOLD US THE WAIT WOULD BE LONGER AND IT WAS SLIGHTLY , BUT WE GOT AN EXCELLENT WAITRESS WHO HAS BEEN WORKING THERE 25 YEARS AND I WANTED THE FULL AMBIANCE OF THE BAR AND AREA....NOT THE BACK ROOM WITH 2 TABLES AND 6 CHAIRS.  THE FOOD WAS VERY GOOD , THE PORTIONS WERE BIG , AND THE PRICES WERE WELL......PRICEY. BUT WE SHOULD GET 3 MEALS OUT OF THIS ONE VISIT. THE OLD MAN DID SAY THE PORTIONS WERE VERY BIG. I ASSUME THIS WAS THE RESTAURANT HE WAS TRYING TO REMEMBER.

 I ALWAYS SAYS TO WHEELS , " I LOVE HANGING WITH HER AND GOING OUT WITH HER. " SHE TRULY IS MY BEST FRIEND. LATELY , SHE HAS BEEN REALLY MAKING ME LAUGH FROM HER SHORT ONE WORD SARCASTIC ANSWERS TO MY QUESTIONS AND GRIEVANCES. JUST HER ONE WORD RESPONSE EQUATES TO A FULL STORY IN MY HEAD THAN ALWAYS ENDS WITH " CHRIS , YOU'RE SUCH AN ASSHOLE. "

 WE TALKED TO A NICE COUPLE ABOUT THE BEST LOCAL RESTAURANTS IN THIS AREA AND THEIR OPINIONS. THEY WERE VERY NICE. I EVEN SAID , " OK THANKS , SO WHAT TIME ARE WE MEETING YOU GUYS FOR DINNER TOMORROW ? " THEY LAUGHED. I REALLY ENJOY PLAYING , JOKING , AND TALKING TO PEOPLE AND OUR WAITRESSES.

 WE ROLL OUT AND STOP AT HOME DEPOT TO PICK UP SOME HOOKS TO MATCH MY " NEW " COAT HANGING BOARD. IT SAYS " BEACH IS HOME ". YEP , FB MARKETPLACE AGAIN.

 BACK HOME OUR NEIGHBORS TEXT US FOR A NIGHT CAP. WE FEED THE PUP AND I WALK HER ON THE BEACH. IT IS A BEAUTIFUL NIGHT AND THE STARS ARE CRYSTAL CLEAR. THE HALF MOON HAD A SUPER BRIGHT STAR RIGHT NEXT TO IT. FROM WHAT I GOOGLED IT IS NOT A STAR BUT THE PLANET VENUS......PRETTY COOL.

 ALSO SAW LITTLE AND BIG DIPPERS PERFECTLY. THERE IS HARDLY ANY LIGHT INFRACTION SO THE SKY IS SO DAMN BRIGHT WITH STARS. AGAIN , PRETTY DAMN COOL. I LET THE PUP OFF-LEASH AND SHE RAN. SHE RAN A TON AT THE DOG PARK EARLIER WITH SOME FUN DOGS. I TOOK VIDEOS AND SENT THEM TO OUR FAMILY GROUP TEXT.

 ELDEST FACETIMES ME. THIS IS NOT GOOD. IN LESS THAN 3 WEEKS SHE HAS DAMAGED 3 VEHICLES. THIS TIME SCRAPING A BLACK POLE WHILE LEAVING A PUB'S PARKING LOT.

 WE HEAD TO OUR NEIGHBOR'S FOR A NIGHTCAP. I WAS TOO FULL AND HELD OFF. I DID PET THEIR 2 DOGS FOR A SOLID 45 MINUTES. I AM A BIG DOG FAN.

 BACK HOME WE WATCH THE VOICE ( WELL , WHEELS WATCHES IT ) AND I PLAY A GAME OF INTERNET POKER ( AND WIN ). THE SEASON OPENER OF YELLOWSTONE WAS EXCELLENT.

 OFF TO BED EXHAUSTED AND FULL. I SLEPT TO 8AM BUT GOT AWFUL CHILLY DURING THE NIGHT. SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH OUR THERMOSTAT. TO FIX THIS THE PUP AND I SPOONED ALL NIGHT TOGETHER FOR BODY WARMTH.

 TUESDAY       11 - 9 - 21

 HOLY SHIT THAT SCARED ME..........WANNA DO A THREESOME ?

 WELP , IF YOU FREAKED OUT WHEN YOU LOST INTERNET , CABLE TV , AND CELL PHONE CAPABILITIES.......YOU WEREN'T THE ONLY ONES.   APPARENTLY , IT STARTED IN SAN FRANCISCO BECAUSE OF HIGH WINDS AND HEAVY RAIN. IT KNOCKED OUT SERVICE AND IT SPREAD TO THE EAST COAST. I LIKE A HOW COMCAST MADE A STATEMENT , " WE APOLOGIZE TO SOME CUSTOMERS WHO LOST SERVICE........" ( SOME = MILLIONS ). OH , I FOUND OUT FROM A GUY AT THE DOG PARK WHO CALLED HIS SON ON THE WEST COAST WHO WORKS FOR COMCAST.

 START MORNING ON THE BEACH WATCHING THE SUNRISE WITH THE PUP. THERE IS JUST SOMETHING POWERFUL THERE. AGAIN , THE WEATHER IS SO DAMN NICE. DON'T EVEN NEED A JACKET AT 7AM. THAT IS REALLY AMAZING FOR NOVEMBER.

 MAKE BREAKFAST FOR WHEELS AND I.

 WHEELS AND I CAME UP WITH SOME IDEAS TO HANG THIS NEW " BEACH HOME " COAT RACK. I DID SOME MACGUYVERING AND ADDED HOOKS. I REMOVED THE OLD ONE. I LET IT DRY OVERNIGHT AND INSTALLED IT. I HAVE TO SAY IT CAME OUT PRETTY NICE.

 OFF TO A VERY GOOD , POSSIBLY THE BEST , DOG DAY FOR THE PUP YET. WE ARRIVE AT THE DOG PARK AND I MEET SOME REALLY NICE GUYS. I SOMETIMES ASK WHAT RESTAURANTS THEY RECOMMEND. ONE GUY SAID , " I HIGHLY RECOMMEND NINO'S FAMILY RESTAURANT IF YOU LIKE ITALIAN FOOD. I SWEAR I DO NOT EAT ALL DAY IF I KNOW I AM GOING HERE. THE BRUSHETTA APPETIZER IS HUGE WITH 10 PIECES OF LARGE BREAD SMOTHERED WITH CHEESE. TO ME , IT'S A RELIGIOUS EXPERIENCE. " NOW THAT IS AN ENDORSEMENT.

 WHEELS WORKS FROM 7:30AM TO 6:30PM.......THAT IS A LONG DAY.

 WE DECIDE WE HAVE JUST TOO MANY LEFTOVERS AND STAY IN. WE HAD FOOD FROM AT LEAST 3 DIFFERENT RESTAURANTS. IT WAS GOOD.

 ANYONE SEE THAT STEELERS / BEARS GAME ON MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL ? GEEZ ....WHO PAID THE REFS OFF. THE TAUNTING CALL WAS THE WORST EVER.

 76ERS LOSE AGAIN AT HOME......BLOW.

 I WALK THE PUP ALONG THE FRONT DECK TOWARDS THE BEACH. 99% OF THE TIME THE PUP IS AHEAD OF ME BECAUSE SHE IS A NUDGE. THIS TIME I AM IN FRONT. I ARRIVE AT THE CORNER OF THE BUILDING AND AHHHHHHH !!! I RUN INTO A BLONDE WOMAN. WE JUST MISS EACH OTHER AND WE BOTH SCREAM. I YELL OUT , " THAT WAS NOT VERY MANLY OF ME TO YELL OUT LIKE THAT. " SHE LAUGHS AND PETS MAZE. WHEELS MET HER EARLIER IN THE WEEK AS THIS WOMAN IS STAYING AT HER SISTER'S CONDO HERE. I TALK TO HER FOR A LITTLE BIT AND SHE SEEMS PRETTY COOL.

 I TELL WHEELS THE STORY OF ALMOST BUMPING INTO THE GIRL AT THE INTERSECTION OF THE DECKS. I SAID , " SHE SEEMS NICE AND I THINK SHE LIKE TO DO A THREESOME. " WHEEL'S RESPONDS , " SHE LOOKS LIKE THE TYPE THAT WOULD DO THAT. " THERE WAS INSTANT MOVEMENT IN MY PANTS.

 WE WATCH 3 EPISODES OF THE CONNORS. THE CHARACTER " JACKIE " IS VERY GOOD AND THE WRITING IS EXCELLENT.

 IT TOOK ME SOME TIME TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO STREAM YELLOWSTONE HERE. I WAS QUITE PROUD TO SET IT UP. EPISODE 2 OF THE NEW SEASON WAS VERY GOOD AGAIN.

 PLAYED A CASH GAME OF INTERNET POKER. I CAN ONLY DO CASH HERE IN NEW JERSEY. OF COURSE I GET ANOTHER BAD BEAT.

 TALK TO FAMILY MEMBERS. I TELL ONE , " WE ARE KINDA LIKE 1%ERS WITHOUT THE MONEY. "

 WHEELS IN BED BY 10:30PM AND I WAS NOT FAR BEHIND. THE DAYS JUST GO TOO QUICK.

  WEDNESDAY        11 - 10 - 21

 START MORNING BY WATCHING THE SUNRISE AND DOLPHINS JUMPING OUT OF THE WATER. NOW THAT IS JUST MAGICAL. THE PUP AND I ENJOYED IT. I ALSO CLEANED UP SOME TRASH ON THE BEACH. I KNOW THE CULPRIT WHO LEFT A 160Z NATTY LIGHT BEER CAN TOO. WE SAW HIM YESTERDAY.

 DID MY NORMAL MORNING ROUTINE. BY 12 NOON I DECIDED TO WALK TO THE DOG PARK SINCE IT WAS THE LAST GOOD WEATHER DAY. I WANTED TO SUCK IT IN EVEN WITH A HEALING ANKLE. IT'S ABOUT A 25 MINUTE WALK ONE WAY. OF COURSE , I ARRIVE AND THE " BIG DOG " SIDE IS CLOSED DUE TO MAINTENANCE. SO , ME AND 6 OTHER DOG OWNERS USED THE " SMALL DOG " SIDE. I MET SOME FAMILIAR FACES AND MET MR. MOREY  ( MOREY'S PIERS ) WHO GOT THE DOG PARK FUNDED AND APPROVED. I ALSO MET THE GUY WHO MAINTAINS THE DOG PARK FOR FREE. HIS DOG'S NAME IS ON A PLAGUE HERE. I ACTUALLY HELPED HIM TO KEEP PEOPLE OUT AS HE HAD TO DRIVE BACK TO HIS SHOP FOR ANOTHER WORK VEHICLE.

 IT WAS A SHORTER STAY AS 4 PIT BULLS AND ROTTWEILER'S WAITED OUTSIDE. ALL 6 OWNERS LEFT BECAUSE THE OWNERS ( WHO WERE COOL AND ALL GIRLS ) SAID THEY DON'T GET ALONG WITH OTHER DOGS.

 WALK THE BEACH BACK HOME AND IT IS MAGNIFICENT WEATHER. IT IS A DAMN SHAME ITS GONNA GET COLD , WINDY , AND RAINY ( LIKE IT ALWAYS DOES ON NAIL WEEKENDS ).

MY WALK ALSO GOT DIVERTED AS A SEA WALL THAT HAD A BEACH TO WALK ALONG NOW HAD THE OCEAN HITTING IT. TO BYPASS IT I WALKED UNDER A PIER VIA A MAINTENANCE VEHICLE PATH.

 FUNNY - WALKING TO THE DOG PARK THE PUP IS IN FRONT OF ME. WALKING BACK FROM THE DOG PARK SHE IS BEHIND ME.

 BACK HOME I SETTLE IN AND WATCH A MOVIE CALLED HUNTING EMMA. I LIKE FEM FATALE MOVIES BUT THIS BORDER LINED BAD TO REALLY BAD. THE ONLY THING GOOD..........THE SMOKE SHOW FEM FATALE.

 ALSO WATCHED THE NEW SEASON EPISODE 1 OF FEAR THE WALKING DEAD. IT WAS GOOD.

 WHEELS AND I GO TO THE BEACH AND JUST ENJOY THE PUP BEING A NUT JOB. WE ALSO TALK TO OUR HOT NEIGHBOR ON THE WAY BACK. I STILL THING SHE WANTS TO DO A THREESOME..........AFTER HER COLONOSCOPY CHECK UP........CALLING DOCTOR BIG DADDY !! WE LIKE HER AND WHEELS EVEN ASKED HER TO GO TO DINNER WITH US.

 WE HEAD TO NINO'S FAMILY RESTAURANT. I WAS TOLD MULTIPLE TIMES TO GO EITHER EARLY OR LATE. WE DECIDE AT PEEK TIME OF 5:30PM.  ON A WEDNESDAY NIGHT IT WAS PACKED AND AT LEAST A 30 MINUTE WAIT. WOW , AND THIS IS OFF SEASON !!

 SO WE DRIVE TO SOUTH 9 BAR AND GRILLE. THIS WAS A REALLY PLEASANT SURPRISE. THE PLACE IS A FORMER CAR DEALERSHIP AND A COOL OLD INDIAN MOTORCYCLE IS BEHIND THE BAR AND A RACE CAR IN THE DINING AREA ROPED OFF. I TOOK SOME PICTURES. THE FOOD WAS GOOD , WAITRESS VERY GOOD , A LITTLE PRICEY , AND WE WERE SERVED IN LESS THAN 5 MINUTES. THIS WAS THE FASTEST I EVER RECEIVED APPETIZERS AND ENTREES. THE PLACE WAS PRETTY FILLED WITH A VERY GOOD DJ / SINGER. THE OLD PEOPLE REALLY LIKED HIM. 

 BACK HOME WE WALK THE PUP AND SETTLE IN. WE WATCH 6 EPISODES ( ONLY 4 MINUTES LONG ) OF BETWEEN 2 FERNS. I THINK THEY'RE FUN.

 WE ALSO WATCH THE FLYERS BLOW AND SHARK TANK.

 WALK THE PUP LATE NIGHT AND AGAIN IT IS JUST TOO DAMN BEAUTIFUL HERE. I SLEEP OK. UP TWICE TO PEE.....BLOW.

  THURSDAY      11 - 11 - 21

 THE BAD WEATHER IS A COMIN'........OF COURSE ON A WEEKEND TO DISRUPT OUR MUSIC AND ATTENDANCE.......AHHHHHHHHHHH........GAN. I HATE BAD WEATHER.

 SUNRISE , DOLPHINS , PUP , BEAUTIFUL.....AGAIN. I TOOK A VIDEO OF DOLPHINS JUMPING OUT OF THE WATER. I UPLOADED IT TO WILDWOOD 365 WEBSITE. OVER 200 LIKES IN UNDER 15 MINUTES......PRETTY COOL.

 ALL GOOD THINGS MUST COME TO AN END , AT LEAST FOR THIS WEEK.  AFTER MY COMPUTER ROUTINE I BEGIN PACKING AND CLEANING. THE PUP LAID ON THE PARKING LOT TO SUN WHILE I LOADED THE VAN. SHE SEEMED TO ENJOY IT.

 YOUNGEST TEXTS US. HER ROOM MATE AND HER HAVE BED BUGS. THIS IS SERIOUS STUFF.

  WE TAKE THE BACK WAY HOME AND MAKE GOOD TIME. IT WAS NICE LISTENING TO SPOTIFY MUSIC AND CONVERSATION ABOUT LIFE.

 WATCH EPISODE 1 OF DEXTER : NEW BLOOD. THIS POPULAR SERIES FINISHED 10 YEARS AGO , BUT IT IS BACK.  IT WAS GOOD TO VERY GOOD.

 CHECK SURVEILLANCE TAPE. APPARENTLY A GUY WAS WALKING AROUND OUR PROPERTY AT 4AM TWO NIGHTS AGO.

 UNLOAD AND I TRY TO WAX SCRATCHES OUT OF VAN....NOT SUCCESSFUL.

 I TRY TO RE-PUZZLE TOYOTA RAV DAMAGE OF HITTING A POLE.........NOT SUCCESSFUL.

 EMPTY JEEP OFF ALL CONTENT. THIS VEHICLE HAS SERVED WELL BUT IT IS TIME TO GET ANOTHER USED CAR.

 VEHICLE INSURANCE CLAIM.........NICE. 

 PURCHASE A USED VEHICLE PAPERWORK....BLOW.

 MORTGAGE STUFF.......BLOW.

 OFF TO THE NAIL AND BEGIN THE PREPPING PROCESS FOR JUST JAM OPEN MIC. AGAIN , A FUN NIGHT OF MUSIC , GOOD TURNOUT ,  AND I RAN ALL EVENING.

 OH , MY ONE ANGLED FOOT ABSOLUTELY BLOWS. I CAN WALK ON A SIDE OF A HILL , BUT FLAT GROUND HURTS. TIME FOR NEW SHOES.

 76ERS........BLOW.

 BACK HOME I HAVE A NIGHTCAP AND WATCH SOME TV. I HEAD TO BED BY 1AM. THE PUP JOINS ME AROUND 6AM.

 FRIDAY      11 - 12 - 21

 I SWEAR TO CHRIST THE SHIT THAT HAPPENS TO ME............

 SO , HERE IS MY DAY.

  FIRST BATTLE - CAR MAX. A YOUNG SALES REP SAYS JUST COME IN AT ANY TIME BEFORE 6PM. WE PICKED OUT A USED CAR AND I STRICTLY EXPLAINED TO 4 DIFFERENT REPS " DUE TO COVID I WANT ALL PAPERWORK DONE AT HOME , PHONE , OR COMPUTER. " THE REP AND I TALKED FOR OVER 90 MINUTES AND HE SAYS AGAIN , " JUST COME IN AT ANY TIME BEFORE 6PM AND JUST SIGN FOR THE CAR........THAT'S IT. " HE TELLS ME I ONLY NEED A DRIVER'S LICENSE AND PROOF OF INSURANCE. AFTER WE HANG UP I CALL 2 TIMES TO CONFIRM A TIME TO STOP BY. I DO NOT WANT TO JUST ARRIVE. HE DOES NOT RETURN MY CALLS.

 I CALL 2 MORE TIMES AND TALK TO 2 CAR MAX ASSOCIATES. THEY CONFIRM A 2:30PM TIME SLOT ( NOT JUST SHOW UP ) AND THE ONLY THING I NEED IS A DRIVER'S LICENSE AND PROOF OF INSURANCE. I SAY BOTH TIMES TO BOTH REPS , " ARE YOU SURE THIS IS ALL I NEED ? " THEY BOTH SAID YES READING FROM A SCRIPT.

 OUR FRIDGE TECH CALLS ME AND SAYS HE CAN MEET AT THE NAIL......JUST AS I AM LEAVING FOR CAR MAX. IT IS HARDER TO GET TOGETHER WITH THIS TECH THAN FINDING WALDO SO I FUCKING RACE TO THE NAIL AND RACE BACK TO OUR HOUSE AND RACE TO CAR MAX. ARE YOU FEELING THE STRESS ?

 I DRIVE MY CRAP JEEP.

 OH WAIT , I FORGOT I HAD TO RE-DO OUR TRADE-IN VIA COMPUTER BECAUSE THE FIRST EVALUATION EXPIRED. NO ONE FUCKING TOLD ME THIS !!!  SO , BACK OUTSIDE IN THE FUCKING RAIN I TAKE 10 PICTURES FOR ANOTHER ESTIMATED VALUE OF THE SHIT ASS BALL BAG JEEP. IT COMES BACK EXACTLY THE SAME PRICE AS BEFORE AND I PLUGGED IN DIFFERENT DESCRIPTION TO DO IT FASTER BECAUSE I WAS ANGRY. NOW , BACK TO DRIVING TO CAR MAX IN KING OF PRUSSIA.

 DRIVING THERE - I FUCKING FORGET THE HANGING ROCK IS HAVING CONSTRUCTION FOR OVER 3 FUCKING YEARS. SO I GET RE-ROUTED BACK TO THE BLUE ROUTE THE WRONG FUCKING WAY. I GET OFF THE VILLANOVA EXIT AND RE-ENTER THE BLUE ROUTE AGAIN GOING NORTH. I ARRIVE AT CAR MAX STEAMING AND READY TO KICK A CHILD.

 THE WELCOME DESK LOGS YOU IN. MY REP COMES OUT AND SAYS , " WHERE'S YOUR WIFE ? " OH MY GODDDDDDDDDDDD !!!!!!!!! ...........WITH TEETH CLENCHED AND RESPONDING LIKE CLINT EASTWOOD'S DIRTY HARRY I SLOWLY SEETHE RESPOND , " YOU , TOLD ME , I ONLY , NEEDED , MY LICENSE , AND PROOF OF INSURANCE. YOU SAID NOTHING , ABOUT MY WIFE BEING HERE OR HER LICENSE. " HE IS A VERY YOUNG AFRICAN AMERICAN WITH DREAD LOCKS. HE SAYS , " OH YES , SHE IS IN THE DEED TOO SO SHE HAS TO BE HERE. "  I TURN AROUND AND LEAVE CURSING UNDER MY BREATH. HE SAYS , " SIR , SIR , SIR.........HERE IS MY CARD ! " I RESPOND , " KEEP YOUR FUCKING CARD. YOU WASTED MY FUCKING TIME AFTER I CALLED 4 TIMES. " HE REPLIES , " OH I WAS GOING TO CALL YOU BACK BUT FIGURED I JUST WAIT TO YOU GOT THERE. " I STOP BY THE DOUBLE DOOR BREEZEWAY AND AND SAY , " ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME ?? YOU WAITED TO CALL ??? OH !! MY !! GOD !!! " I STORM OFF THE PARKING LOT AT 3 MPH IN MY MOTOR BOAT SOUNDING JEEP.

  AT HOME I AM FUCKING LIVID. I CALL CAR ASS. I TALK TO AN AWESOME REP NAMED TYLER. HE APOLOGIZES 20 TIMES AND I NOW WANT THE USED CAR DELIVERED TO ME.  BUT.......I HAVE TO FUCKING DO THE PAPER WORK ALL OVER AGAIN. I NEED PICTURES OF ME AND WHEELS DRIVER'S LICENSE , SELFIES , AND PROOF OF INSURANCE. WHEELS ( NOT AT HOME ) AND MYSELF SEND PICTURES TO OUR YOUNGEST ( WHO IS SLEEPING ) TO EMAIL US THE PICTURES WE TEXTED TO HER. WE DO NOT KNOW HOW TO SEND TEXTED PICTURES TO EMAILS TO SAVE.

 I TALK TO TYLER AND HE WALKS ME THROUGH EVERYTHING. WE SCHEDULE A CAR DELIVERY FOR TOMORROW AT 10AM. I SAY , " WAIT , A REP TOLD ME IT TAKES UP TO 2 WEEKS ? " TYLER RESPONDS , " I AM PUSHING THIS THROUGH FOR YOU.  THIS HELPS MY ANGER DOWN FROM CODE RED TO WARNING WILL ROBINSON YELLOW. I TELL CAR MAX TYLER , " PLEASE , FOR THE LOVE OF GOD , TELL ME IF THERE IS ANY CHANGES FOR SATURDAY'S DELIVERY AND I LIKE A HEADS UP TEXT OR CALL 30 MINUTES BEFORE ARRIVAL. " HE REPLIES , " ABSOLUTELY , I AM WORKING UNTIL MIDNIGHT SO IF ANY THING CHANGES I WILL CONTACT YOU. " GEE.........I WONDER WHAT HAPPENS TOMORROW ?

 NEXT - ALLSTATE  OR ALL-DICK - WHERE YOU'RE NOT IN GOOD HANDS BUT GETTING TEA BAGGED WITH THOSE GOOD HANDS. OUR ELDEST HIT A FUCKING POLE AND CREATED $1,037 OF DAMAGE. AGAIN , I HAD TO TAKE PICTURES AND SEND THEM VIA AN ALL-ASS WEBSITE PORTAL. THIS IS SO MUCH FUN. ALLSTATE PROFESSIONALS EVALUATE THE REPAIRS AT $1037. TRY TO GUESS WHAT OUR DEDUCTIBLE IS ? YEP...........$1,000. AFTER REPAIRS ARE COMPLETE ALLSTATE WILL SEND US A CHECK FOR $37. IT'S ALMOST LAUGHABLE. WE HAVE A GOOD FRIEND IN THE COLLISION BUSINESS AND I SENT HIM ALL DETAILS AND DOCUMENTS. WE WILL SEE WHAT HAPPENS ON THIS FRONT.

 ENTERPRISE CAR RENTAL ASS - CALLS AND TELLS US WE CAN RENT A CAR OF THEIRS WITH A $40 A DAY EXPENSE LIMIT. I TELL THEM TO FUCK OFF.

 OK , SO STRESS IS HIGH AND I HELP WHEELS AND A FRIEND LOAD UP TO HEAD NORTH FOR A GIRL'S WEEKEND.

 I HEAD TO THE NAIL BUT FIRST WILL STOP TO PICK UP SODA. I CALL THE BEER DISTRIBUTOR AND THEY HAVE NO COKE OR SPRITE. I DECIDE TO STOP AT 7/11 ( NO ONE IS EVER THERE ). I BYPASSED WAWA BECAUSE IT WAS PACKED. ANYWAY , I KEEP SAYING TO MYSELF , " PICK UP SODA , PICK UP SODA , PICK UP SODA , LISA NEEDS BRACES , LISA NEEDS BRACES , PICK UP SODA , PICK UP SODA. "

  IN THE NAIL I PREP FOR THE NIGHT. OH , I FORGOT TO GET THE SODA. I GET IN MY FUCKING VAN CURSING SO FUCKING BAD YOU THOUGHT I WAS FUCKING SAMUEL L. JACKSON. I GET 2 CASES OF COKE AND A CASE OF SPRITE.

 I ARRIVE AND BEGIN MY PREPPING. BARTENDERS ARRIVE AND WE HAVE A REALLY GOOD CROWD WITH VERY GOOD MUSIC........AGAIN.

 DID I SAY I FUCKING HATE ANGRY PEOPLE ?

 A COMEDIAN ONCE SAID , " I CAN HAVE 1000 PERSON AUDIENCE AND IF ONE IS NOT LAUGHING OR ANGRY IT RUINS MY NIGHT.

 I LOAD IN ONE BAND WHO HAS A VERY ANGRY FEMALE DRUMMER. SHE NEVER SMILED , NEVER HAD FUN , NEVER TALKED TO ANYONE , NEVER HAD A DRINK , NEVER ANSWERED QUESTIONS......JUST ANGRY. I TURLY FEEL SHE NEED A PENIS. THE WHOLE CROWD IS HAVING FUN AND WE EVEN GET COMPLIMENTED FOR EXCELLENT " HOUSE " MUSIC. I USE MY YOUNGEST SPOTIFY ACCOUNT AND PLAYLIST WE MADE AS A FAMILY. IT IS ALL SUPER FUN SONGS.

 I FIND OUT OUR " NEW " DRUM KIT HAS A LARGE HOLE IN THE MAIN BASS DRUM. OF COURSE IT DOES. THE BIGGEST AND MOST EXPENSIVE PART IS BROKE. A BAND MEMBER DUCT TAPES THE BEJESUS OUT OF IT. WE SURVIVE THE NIGHT AND EVERYONE IS SUPER COOL EXCEPT THE ANGRY " I NEED A PENIS " FEMALE DRUMMER.

 THE BARTENDERS DO GREAT AND THE NIGHT MOVES EXCELLENT. WE WERE PLEASANTLY SURPRISED ON SUCH A GOOD TURN OUT. I EVEN POSTED FB VIDEOS TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS TO SEE.

 I AM ON THE DOOR AND ARRIVES A SALTY OLD GUY. IMMEDIATELY I SENSE , " ANGRY FUCK ".  I INSTANTLY FEEL THE BAD KARMA. I SAY MY NORMAL LINE ,  " HELLO , YOU OLD ANGRY FUCK , DID YOU PARK AT THE SEPTA LOTS ? IT'S A $5 COVER CHARGE. JUST TELL ME WHO YOU'RE HERE TO SEE BECAUSE ALL THE MONEY GOES TO THE BANDS. " HE IS FUCKING PISSED HE HAS TO PAY $5 AND I SAY , " ARE YOU HERE TO SEE ANY ACT OR BAND TONIGHT ? " HE RESPONDS , " WELL , I GUESS I AM NOW. " HE RELUCTANTLY HANDS ME A CRUMPLED 5 DOLLAR BILL MOST LIKELY LODGED IN HIS ASS SINCE WEDNESDAY. I AM THINKING HE JUST WANTED TO STOP BY FOR ONE BEER ( WHICH I ALWAYS DON'T CHARGE ) AND KNOWS NO ONE. I WAS WRONG. HE FUCKING WALKS RIGHT TO A GROUP OF PEOPLE AND THEY GREET HIM. THEY ALL WERE HERE TO SEE THE BANDS. I SAW THIS AND WAS INCENSED. I WAS FUCKING FURIOUS. IT TOOK ALL MY BEING TO HOLD BACK FROM ESCORTING HIS NUT SACK OUT , GIVING HIM HIS CRUMPLED UP ASS 5 DOLLAR BILL , AND SAYING , "  STAY THE FUCK OUT OF HERE YOU MISERABLE FUCK. '

 SPEAKING OF BEING FURIOUS , MAYBE THIS IS THE REASON WHY I DID NOT CONFRONT THE ANGRY FEMALE DRUMMER AND THE ANGRY SALTY OLD FUCK WITH A 5 DOLLAR BILL IN HIS TAINT. I SAW A SHORT VIDEO OF MICHAEL JORDAN'S ( AND OTHER HUGE NAMES ) PSYCHOLOGIST COACH. IT WAS QUITE INSIGHTFUL. I AM PARAPHRASING HERE BUT HE SAID , " NEVER MAKE DECISIONS ON FEELINGS. MAKE YOUR DECISIONS ON YOUR MIND. THE MIND OVER FEELINGS ALWAYS WINS. THINK ABOUT WHEN YOU GET ANGRY AND SAY , " I WILL NEVER FUCKING DO THIS AGAIN. " NOW THIS GUY WAS TALKING SPORTS LIKE FIGHTING WITH OTHER PLAYERS OR SCREAMING AT REFEREES. BUT HE DID SAY USE IT IN LIFE. HE IS 100% RIGHT. I KNOW MY ITALIAN FAMILY GETS SO FUCKING ANGRY WHEN THE WEATHER CHANGES OR TRUMP'S RIGGED ELECTION OR OTHER RIVAL COUNTRIES WHO HATE TRUMP. THEY WOULD USE THEIR ARSENAL OF GUNS TO SHOOT ANY ONE ON THEIR PROPERTY BECAUSE RUSSIAN OR CHINA WOULD ATTACK THEIR HOUSE BEFORE A MAJOR CITY FIRST. THE PSYCHOLOGIST WAS RIGHT ON THE MONEY ABOUT HOW AMERICANS USE ANGRY FEELINGS ALL THE TIME TO MAKE REALLY BAD DECISIONS ALL THE TIME. THE MIND IS 100% RIGHT ON EACH DECISION. AT THE END OF HIS SPEECH HE SIMPLY SAID , " THINK ABOUT IT ? "

 OK , A PERSON AT THE NAIL WAS AN OLD HIGH SCHOOL FRIEND WHO HAPPENS TO BE IN A BAND. WE TALKED A BIT AND HIS COUSIN WAS A GOOD FRIEND OF MINE AND EVEN IN MY WEDDING. I ASKED HIM TO CALL HIM. WHEN THE PHONE RANG I ANSWERED IT AND SAID , " HELLO JACK , WE ARE GOING TO PLAY 20 QUESTIONS TO SEE WHO I AM. " HE GUESSES AFTER 3 QUESTIONS AND I MAKE HIM LAUGH LIKE I ALWAYS HAVE. HE IS IN CONNECTICUT BUT WILL BE IN HAVERTOWN OVER THE THANKSGIVING HOLIDAYS. WE WILL TRY TO GET TOGETHER.

 MY YOUNGEST SAYS , " WHY DO WE HAVE SUGAR FREE COKE ? " I WALK WITH BOTH COKE CASES BACK TO PRAISE ALLAH 7/11. THE INDIAN GUY , THAT I CAN NOT UNDERSTAND , HAS NO CLUE I JUST WANTED TO EXCHANGE THE SUGAR-FREE COKE FOR REGULAR COKE. THEY HAVE NONE. IT WAS LIKE TO DEALING WITH " APU " ON THE SIMPSONS. I JUST HEARD , " THANK YOU , COME AGAIN. " I SWEAR TO SWEET BABY JESUS THINGS JUST PILE UP TO FRIGGIN' STRESS ME. " THANK YOU COME AGAIN "......DICK HEAD.

 SO THE NIGHT ENDS AND IT WAS FUN. I AM TIRED BUT FEEL GOOD. THE BEST THING I DID WAS WEAR DIFFERENT SNEAKERS. MY ANGLED ONES I THREW OUT. I DRIVE OUR YOUNGEST BACK TO CENTER CITY. THE POOR KID IS FIGHTING BED BUGS AND NOW AN OVERFLOWED TOILET WHICH SPILLED INTO THE KITCHEN AND ONTO THEIR SPICE RACKS. I GUESS FUTURE MEALS WILL TASTE A LITTLE DIFFERENT IN THEIR HOUSE.

 WENDY'S AND MCDONALDS ARE A FARCES !!! SO , THE LAST 10 TIMES DRIVING BY THESE ESTABLISHMENTS AND BARTENDERS BACK TO CENTER CITY WE PLAYED GAME CALLED " 3 CARS OR LESS ". I WOULD BUY THEM ( AT 1AM ) A CHOCOLATE FROSTY AND FRENCH FRIES IF 3 CARS OR LESS ARE IN THE DRIVE-THRU LINE.

 HERE IS OUR 3 STOPS :

 - MCDONALDS ON HAVERFORD ROAD - NO ONE IS IN LINE AND WE ASK FOR FRIES AND OREO FROSTY. THE SPEAKER RESPONDS LIKE THE CARTOON ADULTS ON PEANUTS WITH SNOOPY AND CHARLIE BROWN....." WA WA WA WAA WAA WA WAAA ". THREE TIMES I ASK MY KID , " WHAT DID HE SAY ? "  WE PULL UP TO THE FINAL WINDOW AND HE SAYS , " DOOR DASH ONLY !!!! " I MEAN HE SCREAMED AT US. MY KID SAYS , " GEEZ ".

 WENDY'S ON CITY LINE AVENUE - WE SEE 4 CARS SO I SAY , "  ' F ' IT , LET'S JUST GO THROUGH. " MY KID GETS EXCITED. OH , I DID NOT SEE THE 5 OTHER CARS WAITING AROUND AT THE OTHER WINDOWS.  WE GET TO THE FIRST SPEAKER AND THE GIRL SAYS , " 1 - 12 ONLY , WAIT T PLEASE. "  WE GO TO THE 2ND WINDOW AND ASK , " ARE YOU SERVING FRENCH FRIES OR FROSTIES , " SHE REPLIES , " NO , JUST 1 - 12. " WE LEAVE. I BARELY SQUEEZE PAST 6 OTHER CARS IN LINE.

 MCDONALDS ON CITY LINE AVENUE FURTHER DOWN - ONLY 2 CARS IN LINE AND THE FIRST WINDOW SAYS , " GO TO NEXT WINDOW. " I DRIVE UP AND THE 2ND MENU SCREENS ARE FUCKING BLANK !! I DRIVE AROUND 2 CARS AND A 3RD CAR THAT IS PARKED AT THE EXIT SPOT TO CITY LINE AVENUE. I JUST SQUEEZE BY THAT CAR AND GO AROUND THE DRIVE-FUCKING-THRU AGAIN. THIS TIME WE READ WANT SHE WANTS....FRIES AND A SPRITE. WE HEAR A CAR HONK ITS HORN FOR 30 SECONDS STRAIGHT.  I GUESS HE WANTED THE " EXIT " CAR TO MOVE.

 A NICE EASY DRIVE TO CENTER CITY WITH LIMITED DRIVERS....EXCEPT THE ONES GOING 110 MPH AND ONE GUY DRIFTING INTO LANES.

 I SAY MY GOODBYES AND GET A HUG. SO DIG THIS KID.

 BACK HOME I HAVE 2 BEERS AND WATCH SOME NARCOS : MEXICO. THIS IS A TRUE STORY AND MAN THESE GUYS WERE NOT NICE. BY 2:30AM I HEAD TO BED. OH , I WALKED THE PUP TOO. SHE WAS SO HAPPY TO SEE ME AFTER BEING ALONE FOR 8 HOURS.

  SATURDAY     11 - 13 - 21

 GEE......CAR MAX NEVER SHOWED UP AND SALES REP TYLER NEVER CALLED WITH AN UPDATE OR RETURN MY CALL. I AM SO DAMN SURPRISED. I EVEN MOVED ALL VEHICLES UP TO THE BACK YARD TO MAKE MORE ROOM FOR THEIR TOW TRUCK TO TAKE OUR TRADE-IN.

 YOU WANT A FULL DAY ?........HOLY SHIT HERE IS WHAT I DID.

 SHOWER AND SHAVE MY HEAD AND MOUSTACHE. I STILL LOOK LIKE ASS.

 FB MARKETPLACE STRIKES AGAIN - A GUY JUST 3 MILES FROM THE NAIL WAS GIVING AWAY 7 L.E.D. RECESSED CEILING LIGHTS. THESE KIND NEVER NEED CHANGING OF LIGHT BULBS AND ENERGY EFFICIENT SO I PICKED THEM UP. HE WAS VERY BAD AT COMMUNICATION BUT I FINALLY HEARD FROM HIM. I ABSOLUTE HATE WHEN PEOPLE " SEE " YOUR MESSAGE BUT DO NOT RESPOND. HE HAD A NICE DOG.

  ON THE WAY BACK HOME I STOP AT WENDY'S FOR THE DOLLAR BREAKFAST SANDWICHES. I PICK SOME UP.

 LAST NIGHT WE SAVE BEER BOTTLES FOR ANOTHER BAND VIDEO SHOOT AT THE NAIL.  THIS TIME BY OUR FRIENDS MIDHEAVEN. THEY SEEM TO HAVE FUN AND IT WAS MUCH FASTER THAN I THOUGHT. THEY USED THE EMPTY BEER BOTTLES FOR SCENES.

 WHEELS HAVING A GOOD TIME IN THE POCONOS WITH FRIENDS.

 ELDEST IS SICK AGAIN. THIS TIME IT IS AN EAR ACHE. I FEEL BAD FOR THE KID BECAUSE SHE IS ALWAYS TIRED OR SICK.  I KNOW HOW TO FIX HER DAILY HEALTH PROBLEMS BUT SOMETIMES , AS A PARENT , YOU HAVE TO LET KIDS FIGURE IT OUT ON THEIR OWN. SHE WANTED TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL BUT I LET HER DO THAT ON HER OWN....SHE NEVER WENT.  JUST 2 DAYS AGO SHE WANTED TO TEST HERSELF FOR COVID. THIS IS AT LEAST 10 TIMES SHE WANTED TESTING. COLLECTIVELY WHEELS , MYSELF , AND OUR YOUNGEST HAVE TESTED ZERO TIMES.

 I HEAD TO THE NAIL TO PREP FOR THE NIGHT.  I HAVE ANOTHER FB MARKETPLACE STOP. THIS TIME IT IS 4 MILES FROM THE NAIL. I ASK THE WOMAN IF SHE BE AVAILABLE FOR PICK-UP BEFORE 6PM. SHE RESPONDS , " YOU CAN PICK IT UP AFTER 6PM. I WILL DEFINITELY NOT BE HOME UNTIL 6PM. " I REPLY , " ALL GOOD. " I MESSAGE HER AT 5:35PM THAT MY E.T.A. FOR 6PM IS STILL ON.  "  SHE REPLIES , " I'M HOME ".   UN.....FUCKING......BELIEVABLE.  I ARRIVE AT 5:50PM FOR THE EXCHANGE OF A NEW STILL IN THE BOX OVER THE TOILET CABINET. THESE RANGE FROM $80 TO $120. THIS WAS FREE AND NEW. I WAS JUST TELLING WHEELS I LIKE ONE FOR THE CONDO. OH , I WAS NOT HAPPY THE WOMAN NEVER MESSAGED ME SHE WAS HOME EARLIER THAN 6PM. THERE WAS EVEN A FAMILY MEMBER ON THE PORCH WHEN I ARRIVED. THEY WERE NICE BUT I WAS STILL PISSED A SIMPLE MESSAGE COULD OF SAVED ME TIME.

 PICK UP BARTENDER AT ARDMORE TRAIN STOP. WE TIME IT PERFECT EVEN THOUGH HER TRAIN WAS 25 MINUTES LATE. WE ARRIVE AT THE NAIL AND THAT'S WHEN ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE.........WE GOT F'N SLAMMED AND I HAD NO BACK-UP BARTENDER.

 OH THE OLD STRAWBRIDGE'S AND SHOPPING CENTER IN ARDMORE IS MAGNIFICENT WITH CHRISTMAS LIGHTS AND MORE. IT IS SUPER COOL.

 THE PEOPLE JUST KEPT COMING IN. THE FOOD ORDERS JUST PILED UP. I HAD TO MOVE FROM THE DOOR TO BARTEND AND THE BARTENDER COOKED AND BARTENDED BETWEEN FOOD ORDERS. IT WAS COMPLETE CHAOS. I HAD TO STOP FOOD ORDERS ON 20 MINUTE INCREMENTS TO SERVE DRINKS. I AM TELLING YOU WE WERE PHYSICALLY RUNNING. PUT IT THIS WAY ON HOW BUSTY WE WERE AND BACKED UP FOOD ORDERS. ONE GUY ( WE FELT BAD FOR ) PLACED AN ORDER AT 7:15PM. HE GOT HIS FOOD AT 9PM.

 IT WAS BUSY - I WAITED TOO LONG TO TEXT FOR HELP. I STARTED TEXTING AT 9PM. I SHOULD OF DID THIS AT 7PM. A BARTENDER AND BAND MEMBER WHO JUST SHOT A VIDEO HERE WAS AROUND THE CORNER. HE STOPPED IN AND HELPED FOR 1+ HOURS. SO NOW ALL 3 OF US WERE RUNNING. 

 IT WAS BUSY - FOOD ORDERS UP TO 90 MINUTES.

 IT WAS BUSY - OVER 30 CREDIT CARDS WERE LAID OUT BEHIND THE BAR. I TOOK A PICTURE OF THEM AND SENT IT TO OTHER BARTENDERS. THEY REACTED WITH LOTS OF $$$$ SIGNS. THEY WERE RIGHT.

 IT WAS BUSY - IT WAS SO CHAOTIC ALOT OF PEOPLE WERE PUTTING THE $10 COVER CHARGE ON THEIR CREDIT CARDS. AT THE END OF THE NIGHT I WAS SHORT DOOR MONEY BY ALLOT. I WAS SO PISSED AND WE COULD NOT FIGURE OUT HOW THE HELL MY COUNT WAS SO DAMN SHORT. LATER , WHILE SLEEPING IN BED I FIGURED IT OUT. DURING THE NIGHT I NEVER TOOK MONEY OUT OF THE REGISTER TO PUT WITH THE DOOR MONEY WHEN PATRONS USED THEIR CREDIT CARD FOR THE COVER. I EVENTUALLY HAD TO TAKE MONEY OUT OF THE REGISTER AND AT FIRST WE THOUGHT PEOPLE WERE MARKING OUR CLIP BOARD WITH FALSE NUMBERS.

 IT WAS BUSY - THE BARTENDER ADDED HER TIPS. LET'S JUST SAY SHE WILL NOT WORRY ABOUT RENT FOR THE NEXT 2 MONTHS.

 I MADE ANNOUNCEMENTS WHENEVER I COULD ON THE MICROPHONE ABOUT BEING SHORT STAFFED , THANKING EVERYONE FOR COMING TO THE NAIL , BARTENDERS HELPING US OUT , AND SAYING IT WAS HER FIRST SOLO SHIFT. OK , THIS IS A RUNNING JOKE IT'S LIKE HER 7TH SOLO SHIFT.

 PENN STATE LOSES A HEART BREAKER. 76ERS BLOW , FLYERS BLOW.

 OF COURSE THERE IS ALWAYS A NUDGE. THIS TIME WE HAD 2 OF THEM. TWO WOMEN IN THEIR 60'S ARGUED BACK AND FORTH. I SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING FROM LIGHTS TO TV'S TO GIVE THEM THE HINT TO TAKE THE ARGUMENT OUTSIDE. THE HUSBANDS STOOD BEHIND THE 2 ARGUING WOMEN LIKE THEY SEEN THIS BEFORE.

 WE END THE NIGHT RUNNING AFTER A SLOW DOWN OF ABOUT 1 HOUR. WE KICKED IT BACK UP AND CLOSED QUICKLY. BY 1:30AM I WAS HEADING TO CENTER CITY TO GIVE OUR BARTENDER A RIDE HOME.

 I ARRIVE AND POP IN TO SAY HELLO SINCE MY YOUNGEST WAS UP. I THANKED HER FOR GETTING ME A SANDWICH FOR AT THE READING TERMINAL. THEY WERE THERE EARLIER IN THE DAY.  THE TRAINWRECK PO' BOY HOAGIE FROM BECKS' CAJUN CAFE.........VERY GOOD.

 I HEAD HOME AND MY ELDEST IS UP WATCHING TV. I HAVE A BEER BUT BY 2:30AM I HAVE TO GO TO BED. THE GOOD THING MY NEW SNEAKERS ARE SO SAVING MY SIDEWAYS FEET. THEY DID NOT HURT ( THAT MUCH ) WITH ALL THE RUNNING I DID TONIGHT.

 OH , SUNDAY I SCHEDULED A SIDE JOB. AT FIRST I ACTUALLY STARTED AN EMAIL SAYING I AM NOT WORKING SIDE JOBS ANYMORE. THE NEXT DAY I DECIDED TO KEEP THE JOB. DUE TO COVID I HAVEN'T BEEN THERE IN 2 YEARS.

  SUNDAY      11 - 10 - 21

 AS IF I'M NOT TIRED ENOUGH..............

 PHYSICALLY RAN MY ASS OF SATURDAY NIGHT. I FINALLY GOT TO BED BY 3AM.........SO LET THAT SINK IN.

 TODAY - UP AT 6:30AM TO WALK AND FEED THE PUP ( NOTICE - THAT IS 3 1/2 HOURS SLEEP INCLUDING TWICE GETTING UP TO PEE ).  I BEGIN MY NORMAL ROUTINE OF BLOGGING AND BAND RESPONSES. THANK YOU FOR THE FACEBOOK AND INSTAGRAM MESSAGES ABOUT LAST WEEKS BLOGGING.....YOU FELT MY PAIN PEOPLE.

 LOAD VAN WITH TOOLS AND LUNCH. I HEAD TO A SIDE SIDE JOB. I DECIDED I JUST TAKE MY TIME AND NOT RUSH. I MEAN SERIOUSLY ?.....WHAT DO I RUSH FOR ?....TO GET BACK HOME AND PLAY INTERNET POKER AND WATCH PORN ? WELL , MAYBE I'LL RUSH A LITTLE.

 I ARRIVE AT THE SIDE JOB AND BEGIN BRINGING IN A 100 TOOLS. THE BUILDING IS EMPTY AND THAT IS WHY I WANTED TO WORK SUNDAY FOR COVID REASONS AND TO MOVE AROUND WITHOUT HINDERING EMPLOYEES. THEY GAVE ME A SECURITY AND DOOR CODE TO ENTER. NOW LET'S BEGIN THE PAIN.....I MEAN WORK :

 - SECURE AND ANCHOR AN OFFICE WALL CABINET.

 - SPOT SPACKLE ABOUT 10 DIFFERENT AREAS.

 - INSTALL FLOOR GUIDES FOR A BARN DOOR.

 - INSTALL PADLOCK AND LATCH TO BARN DOOR.

 - INSPECT OVER 50 DROP CEILING LIGHTS AND CHANGE ANY BURNT OUT OR FLICKERING BULBS.

 - CLEAN UP AND THROW OUT ALL DEBRIS INTO A DUMPSTER.

 I HAVE HAD THIS SIDE JOB FOR AT LEAST 7 YEARS. I COULD NOT BELIEVE HOW MANY EMPLOYEES WERE GONE DUE TO COVID. IT HAD TO BE 50 EMPLOYEES DOWN TO 15.

 GRAB MY LUNCH FROM MY LUNCH BAG. I OPEN THE TIN FOIL AND SEE I DID NOT TAKE MY HALF OF A PO' BOY CHEESE STEAK FROM BECK'S CAJUN CAFE  BUT A BAKED POTATO. I HAD A 50/50 SHOT OF PICKING THE RIGHT TIN FOIL........BLOW.

 STOP AT A MAGNIFICENT NEIGHBORHOOD FOR YET ANOTHER FB MARKETPLACE FREE PRODUCT. THIS TIME IT IS A VERTICAL BBQ. IT KINDA LOOKS LIKE A TOASTER. I WANT TO SEE IF IT WILL COOK FOOD AT THE NAIL FASTER THAN DEEP FRYING.

 AT THE NAIL I PREP FOR SUNDAY NIGHT. I WANTED TO DO ALL THIS STUFF BEFORE ARRIVING HOME. REMEMBER , I AM GOING ON 3 1/2 HOURS OF HALF-SLEEP. IT IS NOW 4PM AND I AM READY FOR BED.

 AT HOME I HAVE LUNCH AND WATCH THE EAGLES. FOR THE 3RD STRAIGHT GAME THE EAGLES COMMITTED TO THE RUN. THIS OPENS UP THE AIR ATTACK AND STRESS OF THE ROOKIE QUARTER BACK HURTS. THEY LITERALLY PLAYED  A PERFECT GAME ON ALL 3 FRONTS......OFFENSE , DEFENSE , AND SPECIAL TEAMS. I LIKE THE INTERVIEW OF DARIUS " BIG PLAY " SLAY ON HIS FUMBLE RECOVERY TOUCHDOWN. TEAM MATES WERE SCREAMING " JUST GO DOWN ". HE YELLED OUT , " NOT WITH ALL THESE FAT GUYS !! ( REFERRING TO OFFENSIVE LINEMEN CHASING HIM ). IT IS FINALLY GOOD TO SEE SLIGHT IMPROVEMENT WEEK TO WEEK. SO NICE TO SEE A FUN GAME TO CHEER. TO THE SUPER BOWL !!!!! IT WAS ALSO FUN TEXTING A COUSIN , BROTHER , AND FRIENDS DURING THE GAME. I THINK " GOING TO THE SUPER BOWL " OR LET'S GO TO THE NEXT GAME " WAS TEXTED 20 TIMES.

 MORE EAGLES - THEY HAVE RUSHED THE BALL FOR MORE YARDS IN THE LAST 3 GAMES THAN THE FIRST 6 AND ALL OF LAST YEAR.  WHY DID THEY WAIT SO LONG ? ( OK , MAYBE NOT ALL OF LAST YEAR )

 ELDEST HEADS TO URGENT CARE AGAIN. SHE HAS AN OUTER EAR INFECTION.

 TALK / FACETIME WITH WHEELS. SHE IS HAVING A GOOD TIME WITH HER FRIENDS AND GOING TO CHARLIE WEAVERS RESTAURANT ......TWICE. MAN , I AM SO JEALOUS.

 AFTER THE GAME I MAKE DINNER WHILE MY ELDEST ORDERS 3 BAGS OF FOOD. IT WAS DELIVERED. I WAS NOT ASKED TO JOIN IN.....I WOULD OF PAID FOR EVERYTHING.

 I WATCH SOME FOOTBALL , AN EPISODE OF ALASKAN BUSH PEOPLE , AND AN EPISODE OF FEAR THE WALKING DEAD ( VERY GOOD ).

 I FELL ASLEEP WATCHING TV AND IT WAS 9PM. I WALK THE PUP AND SHE SCARES THE BEJESUS OUT OF ME. WHENEVER SHE GETS ALL RILED UP SHE BOLTS AROUND THE HOUSE TO PLAY. LUCKILY , SHE RUNS AROUND THE HOUSE AND RIGHT TO OUR BACK PORCH. SHE IS IN TOTAL PLAY MODE. I GET HER INSIDE AND MY ELDEST AND I CHASE HER AROUND THE 1ST FLOOR. SHE IS HILARIOUS.

 OFF TO BED AND OUR ELDEST TAKES THE PUP. THIS LETS ME SLEEP ALONE FOR ONCE. THE PUP JOINED ME AROUND 5AM.

    MONDAY     11 - 15 - 21

 I'M NOT USED TO BEING HOME SUNDAY TO THURSDAY. THE LAST 6 SUNDAYS TO THURSDAYS WHEELS AND I WENT EITHER NORTH OR EAST. SO , I MAKE A PUNCH LIST FOR HOME AND NAIL STUFF......IT'S A LOT.

 I NOW HAVE 15 L.E.D. RECESSED LIGHTS ( FOR FREE ) AND DECIDED THERE ARE 3 PLACES TO INSTALL THEM. THEY SAVE MONEY FOR THE ELECTRIC BILL , LOOK 10X BETTER , AND NEVER HAVE TO CHANGE A LIGHT BULB EVER AGAIN. THIS MORNING I REPLACED A TOTAL OF 5 LIGHTS IN OUR HOUSE......FOYER AREA , HALLWAY , AND BATHROOM. THE LIGHTS WE USE ON OUR WHOLE FIRST FLOOR IS COMPLETELY CHANGED TO L.E.D.

 FB MARKETPLACE AGAIN - IF PEOPLE ARE GIVING NEW THINGS AWAY AND STILL IN THE BOX FOR EITHER FREE OR EXTREME LOW COST THAN WHO WHY NOT TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT ?  I NEEDED 10 MORE FEET OF THE MULTI COLOR L.E.D. LIGHTS THAT CHANGE COLOR AND PULSE TO MUSIC. THIS WOULD BE FOR THE NAIL STAGE WHICH LOOKS PRETTY COOL AND WE HAVE RECEIVED A TON OF COMPLIMENTS ON THE NEW LOOK. ANYWAY , THEY RUN ABOUT $15 FOR 16 FEET OF LIGHTS..........BASICALLY A BUCK A FOOT. A NICE ASIAN COUPLE SOLD ME 130 FEET FOR $10. I HAVE NEVER EVER SEEN THESE LIGHTS THIS CHEAP FOR SUCH A LONG LENGTH.

 OH , ONE MORE THING. THE ASIAN COUPLE WHO SOLD THEM TO ME LIVE IN COATESVILLE. THAT WOULD BE A 50 MINUTE DRIVE ONE WAY TO GET THEM. THIS IS WAY OUTSIDE MY " 30 MINUTE MAXIMUM DRIVE ONLY FOR FB MARKETPLACE STUFF " SO I ASKED IF THEY COULD MEET SOMEWHERE.....THEY DID. WE MET AT HOME DEPOT. I BROUGHT MY PUP AND WALKED HER OUTSIDE IN ORDER TO BE SEEN QUICKLY. THEY TOLD NOT TO BE LATE. I WAS 5 MINUTES EARLY. THEY WERE 18 MINUTES LATE. STILL , IT ONLY TOOK ME 8 MINUTES TO GET THERE TAKING BACK ROADS.

 I DECIDED TO START HIRING BARTENDERS AGAIN. MY BROTHER'S FRIEND SAID HIS SISTER WAS LOOKING TO BARTEND. I TEXTED HER AND SHE CALLED ME BACK. SHE STARTS ON FRIDAY.

 DROVE TO CVS AND LATER RITE AID TO PICK UP MEDS FOR OUR ELDEST. THEY ASKED ME WHEN IS YOUR DAUGHTER'S BIRTHDAY...........CRAP.  WORST MEMORY EVER.

 RE-STACKED FIRE WOOD IN OUR BACK YARD AND COVERED IT. IT IS FIRE PIT SEASON OR AS MY KIDS CALL IT " BOND FIRES ". I HAD TO TEACH THEM THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BOND FIRES AND FIRE PIT FIRES.

  WHEELS MAKES IT BACK FROM THE POCONOS. SHE HAD A GOOD TIME ON A GIRL'S WEEKEND.

 A PUPPY VISITS OUR PUP. OH MY GOD THE THING WAS TINY. THEY HUNG OUT ABOUT 30 MINUTES. THE ONLY THING I DID NOT LIKE WAS THE 11 WEEK OLD PUP WAS WALKED OFF-LEASH. WE SENT PLENTY OF PICTURES AND VIDEOS TO OUR YOUNGEST AND ROOM MATES.

 WHEELS , ELDEST , AND MYSELF WATCH A MOVIE CALLED RED NOTICE WITH THE ROCKRYAN REYNOLDS , AND GAL GADOT ( WONDER WOMAN / PIECE OF ASS ). THE MOVIE WAS FUN AND HAD MANY GOOD JOKES BY RYAN REYNOLDS. MOSTLY CUTTING UP THE ROCK. ONE LINE REYNOLDS SAYS TO THE ROCK , " THE BACK OF YOUR HEAD LOOKS LIKE A PENIS ". OVERALL , THE MOVIE WAS ENTERTAINING AND JUST OK TO GOOD AT BEST WITH WAY TOO MANY " SURPRISES " BUT IT WAS FUN. IT IS TOUGH NOT TO EQUATE RYAN REYNOLDS TO THE CHARACTER IN DEADPOOL. ALOT OF THE SAME QUICK ONE LINERS IN BOTH MOVIES. THOUGH IT GOT 89% PEOPLE LIKING RED NOTICE THE ROTTEN APPLES SCORE WAS ONLY 36%. OH , SO FAR IT HAS GROSSED 2 MILLION DOLLARS. THE BUDGET WAS 200 MILLION.

 OFF TO BED AROUND 11PM. OUR ELDEST TOOK THE PUP AGAIN SO I WAS HOPING FOR DECENT SLEEP. I GOT UP AT 1AM TO PEE THINKING IT HAD TO BE LATER.....IT WASN'T. BACK TO SLEEP AND UP TO PEE AGAIN AT 2AM. I THOUGHT IT WAS MUCH LATER......IT WASN'T. I ACTUALLY CURSED WHILE PEEING. HOW THE " F " CAN I SLEEP IF I WAKE UP OR NEED TO PEE EVERY HOUR ?..........BLOW.

  TUESDAY    11 - 16 - 21

 YOU WANT A FRICKIN' DAY ?..........HERE'S ONE. OH , VERIZON FIOS ARE DICK HEADS.

  IS THIS A NORMAL DAY IN PEOPLE'S LIVES ?

 - UP AT FRIGGIN' 5AM AND STAY IN BED JUST TO NOT USE ENERGY. I RUB MY BALLS AND COCK FOR OVER ONE HOUR. IT DOESN'T HELP ME GO BACK TO SLEEP. USING YOUR OWN HAND BLOWS. THERE REALLY IS NO SENSATION. MAYBE BECAUSE MY HANDS ARE LIKE CATCHER'S MITTS.

 - DO THE NORMAL BLOG , EMAILS , SEND PICTURES AND WORK DETAILS PERFORMED TO SALES REPS WHERE I HAD A SIDE JOB ON SUNDAY , AND MORE.

 - BY 10AM I FEEL I HAVE WORKED A FULL DAY ALREADY. BUT....TIME TO GET ON THE ROAD.

 - STOP AT A FEDEX TO DROP A COMPUTER OFF FOR WHEELS. IT IS BEING SHIPPED BACK TO THE MAIN OFFICE AT HER COMPANY.

 - DRIVE TO BERWYN TO PICK UP A MICROWAVE OFF FB MARKETPLACE.  IT IS IN PERFECT CONDITION AND THE SIZE I WANT.......AND FREE.

 - HERE'S ONE , GET FUCKING THIS........SO VERIZON FIOS TOLD ME I HAD TO RETURN AN OLD ROUTER OR GET CHARGED AFTER 30 DAYS. SO I AM ON PHONE HOLD 3 DIFFERENT TIMES.  I TALK TO 2 CUSTOMER SALES ASSOCIATES. BOTH TELL ME I HAVE TO DRIVE TO MANAYUNK TO THE CLOSEST STORE. THERE ARE NONE CLOSER.......BLOW. I DRIVE THERE AND THE BUILDING IS FUCKING VACANT !!!!! I AM FUCKING FURIOUS. I HATE THE FUCKING WORLD !!!......MOSTLY I FUCKING HATE VERIZON !!!!  FUCK EM' !!! I LET THE OLD ROUTER SIT ON MY KITCHEN TABLE FOR 2 WEEKS.

 PART II - TWO WEEKS LATER.........I CALL MY CELL PHONE COMPANY VERIZON AND SEE IF THEY CAN LEAD ME WHERE TO DROP OFF THIS OLD ROUTER SINCE THE CLOSEST VERIZON STORE IS NOW A CRACK HOUSE. I INSTANTLY GET A REP AND HE SAYS , " OH , YOU CAN DROP IT OFF AT ANY U.P.S. STORE. IT IS FREE AND THEY WILL BOX IT FOR YOU. " MY RESPONSE " YEAH RIGHT.....FREE. YOU'RE A DICK. "

 PART III -  I DRIVE TO MY LOCAL U.P.S. STORE JUST SECONDS FROM MY HOUSE. I AM FIRST IN LINE AND I FIND A PARKING SPOT RIGHT OUT FRONT WITH 18 MINUTES LEFT ON THE METER FROM THE PREVIOUS DRIVER. I WALK IN AND THE U.P.S. REP WAVES ME OVER. I SARCASTICALLY SAY , " I WAS TOLD I COULD RETURN THIS OLD ROUTER FOR FREE. " THE EMPLOYEE REPLIES , " YES YOU CAN. " A TEAR FORMED AND SLOWLY CASCADED DOWN MY FAT CHEEK AS IF I WAS EATING A CHOCOLATE DONUT FRO DINNER. I SEMI-FAKE CRY. THE REP SAYS , " ARE YOU ALRIGHT SIR ? " I REPLIED WHIMPISHLY , " YES , I'M JUST NOT USED TO SOMETHING GOING RIGHT. "

 PART IV - THE U.P.S. REP TAKES ABOUT 5 MINUTES TO PROCESS OUR OLD ROUTER. I LEAVE AND A LINE OF ABOUT 10 PEOPLE FORMED ALREADY. IF I WAS 5 MINUTES LATER I WOULD OF WAITED AT LEAST 45 MINUTES IN THE NOW VERY LONG LINE. I ACTUALLY SKIP WALK OUTSIDE GLEEFULLY. LATER IN THE DAY I GET A CONFIRMATION EMAIL THAT MY OLD ROUTER HAS BEEN RETURNED TO VERIZON. THOSE FUCKING FIRST VERIZON REPS COST ME SO MUCH TIME AND AGGRAVATION WHEN THE WHOLE FUCKING TIME I COULD OF JUST DROPPED IT OFF AT AN U.P.S. STORE 11 SECONDS FROM MY HOUSE......BASTARDOS !!!!!

 - DRIVE ABOUT A 1/2 MILE PAST THE NAIL FOR ANOTHER FB MARKETPLACE STOP. I PICK UP 4 OUTDOOR STACKABLE CHAIRS THAT OUR VERY COMFORTABLE FOR OUR FIRE PIT AREA. THEY ARE THE SAME AS 2 WE HAVE. THE REASON FOR THIS PICK-UP IS IT IS A HASSLE TO MOVE WOOD PATIO CHAIRS AND SEAT CUSHIONS FROM THE PATIO TO THE FIRE PIT AREA EACH TIME WE HAVE  A FIRE. NOW , WE HAVE 6 LARGE COMFY STACKABLE CHAIRS JUST FEET FROM THE FIRE PIT AREA.

 I HEAD TO THE NAIL FOR MORE PROJECTS :

 - I SPEND ABOUT 25 MINUTES CLEANING THE " NEW " CHAIRS WITH A HOSE , BRILLO PAD , AND RAG. THEY CLEAN UP VERY NICELY. I LET THEM DRY IN THE SUN. I AM SUPER HAPPY OF THIS " GET ".

 - TEST A VERTICAL BBQ I GOT OFF FB MARKETPLACE 3 DAYS AGO. I WANTED TO SEE IF IT COOK FASTER THAN A DEEP FRYER. I COOKED 4 PIECES OF CHICKEN TENDERS BUT IT TOOK DOUBLE IN TIME. THE TASTE WAS BLANDER BUT NOT BAD.

 - INSTALL 8 L.E.D. RECESSED LIGHTS IN THE MAIN ROOM. THEY ARE BRAND NEW AND $40 EACH. I GOT THEM FOR FREE. ALL TESTED WELL AND LOOK GOOD.

 - CHANGE THE MARQUEE SIGN AND TAKE PICTURES.

 - PUT DRUM KIT TOGETHER AND NEED TO FIND A NEW " HEAD " FOR THE BASS DRUM SINCE IT WAS SPLIT OPEN THIS PAST WEEKEND. A BAND MEMBER DUCT TAPED IT.

 - HOSED MY VAN DOWN.

 - REPLACED THE KITCHEN MICROWAVE. ANOTHER REASON FOR REPLACING IT IS THE OLDER MICROWAVE HAD NO CLOCK DUE TO THE NUMBERS 1 AND 2 NOT WORKING WHEN PUSHING THEM.

 - STOCKED AND ORGANIZED BEER IN WALK-IN FRIDGE.

 - MADE A BEER LIST AND CALLED IT IN.

 - MADE A LIQUOR LIST.

 - FIXED A FUZZY SNOWY TV THAT A LOCAL REGULAR CALLED , " MAN YOU HAVE SHITTY TV'S HERE. " HE ALSO SAID WHILE WATCHING THE DOLPHINS NFL FOOTBALL GAME , " IS IT SNOWING THAT HARD IN MIAMI ?  MAN YOUR TV'S ARE SHITTY. "

 I ROLL HOME AT 4PM-ISH. I FEEL LIKE MY DAY HAS BEEN DOUBLED. REMEMBER , I SLEEP LIKE SHIT JUST LIKE OUR NAIL TV'S SO ONE HOUR OF WORK FEELS LIKE 4 HOURS OF WORK. I FEEL FAT. I AM FAT.

 I SPEND TIME EMAILING BANDS WHO PLAYED LAST WEEKEND AND THAN EMAILING BANDS WITH DETAILS WHO ARE PLAYING THIS WEEKEND. I WATCH SOME PORN AND PLAY INTERNET POKER. EVER WATCH PORN WITH HEAD PHONES ? IT REALLY SHUTS OUT THE WHOLE WORLD......FOR 30 SECONDS.

 SHOWER AND SHAVE MY HEAD. I HATE THAT MY HAIR FORMS LITTLE ISLANDS ON MY FAT HEAD.  THE TOP OF MY HEAD LOOKS LIKE SMALL HAWAIIAN ISLANDS ON A MAP.

 A NICE DINNER WITH WHEELS AND WE WATCH THE NEWS. I REALLY LIKE A KITCHEN TV.

 IN THE MAIN ROOM WE WATCH THE FLYERS WITH AN OUTSTANDING OVERTIME WIN. THE 76ERS WERE ON WAY TOO LATE AND I BELIEVE LOST BY 40 POINTS.

 WE WATCH AN EPISODE OF YELLOWSTONE........VERY GOOD.

 OUR ELDEST WAKES UP AT 9PM AND WE WATCH A NEW TV SERIES CALLED ONLY MURDERS IN OUR BUILDING. IT STARS STEVE MARTIN , SELENA GOMEZ ( PIECE OF ASS AND SHOWS SIDE BOOB IN A SHOWER SCENE ....YEAH I NOTICED ) AND MARTIN SHORT. IT HAD A CAMEO OF TINA FREY. THE SHOW WAS KINDA SLOW MOVING AND SO-SO TO START BUT IT DID PEEK OUR INTEREST WITH THE ENDING....TO MAKE US WATCH EPISODE 2.

 OFF TO BED BY 11:30PM. AGAIN , I TOSS AND TURN AND I THINK I GOT 2 STRAIGHT HOURS OF SLEEP SOMEWHERE DURING THE COURSE OF THE NIGHT..........BLOW.

  WEDNESDAY        11 - 17 - 21

 YOU WANT ENTERTAINING ?................HERE IT COMES. HOW THE " F " THIS SHIT HAPPENS TO ME ON A CONSISTENT DAILY BASIS IS FUCKING AMAZING.

 SO HERE IS THE " SHIT SHOW " OF THE DAY. AND BELIEVE ME THERE IS A REASON I AM WRITING THE WORDS " SHIT SHOW ".

 SPEND ANOTHER 2 HOURS DOING PAPERWORK AND COMPUTER WORK WITH CARMAX TO PURCHASE A USED VEHICLE AND TRADE-IN OUR JEEP. THIS HAS BEEN A FUCKING NIGHTMARE. I HAVE TALKED TO AT LEAST 20 DIFFERENT SALES PEOPLE. THE FINAL PROCESS IS PAYMENT OF COURSE. THEY TOLD US WE COULD PUT A DOWN PAYMENT USING A CREDIT CARD. THIS WAS NOT TRUE. THEY SEND US AN EMAIL WITH A LINK TO ALL BANKS SO WE COULD TRANSFER MONEY TO THEM. JUST ONE PROBLEM AGAIN......OUR FUCKING BANK WAS NOT ON THE LIST. BOTH WHEELS AND I NOW HAVE TO DRIVE OUT TO FUCKING CARMAX IN KING OF PRUSSIA TO DROP OFF JUST A CHECK. IT SHOULD ONLY TAKE 15 MINUTES......15...........MINUTES.

 OUR DRUM BASS HEAD SPLIT. IT IS ABOUT $40 TO REPLACE. IN THE MORNING I WATCH A YOU-TUBE VIDEO ON HOW TO REPLACE THEM. I ALSO TEXT 4 BANDS MEMBERS I KNOW..........ONE STEPS UP. STEVIE C. FROM THE BAND SMARTY PANTS ( PLAYING FRIDAY ) SAYS HE HAS A BRAND NEW 22" DRUM HEAD. I CAN VISIT HIS HOUSE IN OVERBROOK OR HE WILL STOP BY ON THURSDAY NIGHT FOR JUST JAM OPEN MIC. I DECIDE TO VISIT HIM BECAUSE HE HAS ASKED ME TO SEE HIS HOME MUSIC STUDIO SEVERAL TIMES.

 AT THE NAIL I DO SOME THINGS AND TAKE A 10 MINUTE RIDE TO SMARTY PANTS HOUSE. LET ME TELL YOU I USED THE WORDS , " I AM FUCKING OVERWHELMED " AT LEAST 10 TIMES. HIS HOUSE IS A GIGANTIC STONE HOME ON A BIG CORNER LOT. IT WAS LIKE VISITING WILLY WONKA EXCEPT FOR MUSIC AND BAND EQUIPMENT. THIS HOUSE HAD A BASEMENT WITH AT LEAST 5 DRUM KITS , A SOUND PROOF STUDIO , A RECORDING STUDIO , A STAGE WITH 12-14 SEATS , A BAR , LIGHTING , AND A SHIT LOAD OF BAND EQUIPMENT. IT WAS FUCKING UNBELIEVABLE. THE ONLY PROBLEM THE CEILINGS WERE JUST 5 FEET HIGH OR LOWER.

 CONTINUED - HE SHOWS ME OUTSIDE - A CAMPER , 2 FIRE PITS WITH SEATING AND BIG AWNINGS , A CLUB HOUSE BAR , A HUGE IN-LAW SUITE / HOUSE , A GREEN HOUSE , AND A TINY COTTAGE THAT HAS A BATHROOM , BED , COUCH , TV , FRIDGE , AND MORE IN IT. IT WAS ABSOLUTELY OFF THE HOOK. WE EVEN TALKED ABOUT DOING A SHOW AT HIS HOUSE. IT WAS THAT DAMN COOL. I LIKE HIS BULL DOGS TOO. I SAID TO HIM , " HE MUST HAVE 50 GUITARS. " HE RESPONDED , " MORE CLOSER TO A 100. " ANYWAY , HE GAVE ME THE NEW DRUM HEAD AND I ROLLED BACK TO THE NAIL.

 BACK TO THE NAIL AND I INSTALL THE DRUM HEAD. IT WAS VERY EASY. I OPEN UP THE 130' OF L.E.D. LIGHTS I GOT. UNFORTUNATELY , IT DID NOT GO ON WITH THE OTHER STRINGS. MY ONLY PROBLEM IS NOW ....WHERE THE HELL DO I PUT 130' OF L.E.D. LIGHTS ?

 I PICK UP A LIQUOR ORDER AND FIND OUT MY FAVORITE STORE MANAGER IS RETIRING. I'M HAPPY FOR HIM. WE TALK FOR ABOUT 15 MINUTES UNTIL MY PHONE GOES OFF. A FEMALE VOICE SAYS , " HI , THIS IS ALEXIS , I'M OUTSIDE. " I THINK IT IS A BAND OR MAYBE A BEER REP. SHE DID NOT TELL ME WHO SHE IS SO I ASK. SHE TELLS ME , " I'M FROM CARMAX AND DELIVERING YOUR CAR. " I SAY NOTHING. I CALL HOME AND TELL MY ELDEST AND WHEELS TO GREET HER. THEY ARE DELIVERING A CAR WE HAVE NOT PAID A DOWN PAYMENT YET. I'M NOT SAYING ANYTHING. SHE ALSO TELLS ME SHE DOES NOT SEE A TRADE-IN FOR THE PURCHASE. I AM FUCKING LIVID.

 I SWEAR TO CHRIST I WAS REALLY THINKING OF NOT TELLING THEM ANYTHING. WE SIGN PAPERWORK AND THEY GIVE US THE CAR.

 I ROLL BACK TO THE NAIL AND WHEELS GOES BACK TO WORK. TWO HOURS LATER THE DELIVERY GIRL CALLS , " UH , YOU'RE PAYMENT WAS NOT RECEIVED. " I REPLY , " REALLY ? " AND HANG UP. I AM SO FUCKING PISSED AT THIS FUCKING SHIT SHOW PURCHASE. WE HAVE DONE PAPERWORK TWICE NOW.

 CARMAX CALLS BACK LATER AND SAYS THEY HAVE TO RE-PICK THE CAR UP. I TELL HER TO COME FUCKING GET IT. I MADE AN APPOINTMENT FOR 6:30PM TO MEET WITH MORE FUCKING REPS. SHE STUTTERS AND SAYS , " OH , THAN WE'LL WAIT FOR THE MEETING THAN. " SINCE LAST WEEK I HAVE SPENT OVER 8 1/2 HOURS ON THE PHONE AND PROBABLY ANOTHER 10 HOURS VIA COMPUTER AND TAKING PICTURES.

 I FINISH STUFF AT THE NAIL AND RETURN HOME. I TELL WHEELS WE HAVE TO GO TO THE 6:30PM APPOINTMENT TO FINISH THIS FUCKING NIGHTMARE OF A PURCHASE. MAYBE EVEN GO OUT TO DINNER WHILE IN THE AREA. WE GO BACK TO WORK.

 OH , THE GIRL DRIVER SAID SHE COULD NOT GET UP OUR DRIVEWAY. I NOTICED OUR WOOD BORDER WAS SMASHED.

   THE SHIT SHOW CONTINUES -- WE ROLL OUT AND ARRIVE AT CARMAX AT 6PM. I TELL THE GREETER , " I WANT YOUR MOST EXPERIENCED SALES PERSON AND MANAGER DURING OUR FINAL DOWN PAYMENT. I AM TELLING YOU THIS PURCHASE IS A SHIT SHOW."  WE WAIT FOR ABOUT 20 MINUTES. THEY WALK US OVER TO A GLASS PARTITION FOR PAYMENT AND IT IS THE FUCKING DELIVERY GIRL WHO DROPPED OFF THE CAR. SHE SAYS , " I NEED YOUR DOWN PAYMENT OF $_ _ _ _. " WE TELL HER ABOUT THE TRADE-IN AND SHE DOES NOT SEE ANYTHING. I SAY , " I THINK YOU BETTER GET YOUR SUPERVISOR. THE GIRL IS NOW SMUG.

 A SUPERVISOR ARRIVES AND STANDS WITH HER. HE INQUIRES AND I SAY , " LOOK , WE ARE GOING TO NEED AN OFFICE OR CONFERENCE ROOM. THIS SHIT SHOW IS GOING TO TAKE TIME. " HE WALKS US BACK AND WE HAVE A LARGE CONFERENCE ROOM. I BEGIN MY FUCKING RANT OF HOW MANY SALES REP I TALKED TO ( AND GIVE NAMES ) , HOW MUCH TIME ON THE PHONE , HOW MUCH TIME ON COMPUTERS , HOW MUCH TIME TAKING PICTURES , AND MORE. AND.......ALL FUCKING TWICE. HE IS SUPER SYMPATHETIC TO OUR CAUSE. I STRAIGHT RANT FOR AT LEAST 15 MINUTES WHILE HE WRITES NOTES. HE WANTED THE WHOLE STORY FROM THE BEGINNING.

 HE LEAVES AND SUPPLIES US WITH CHIPS , COOKIES , AND WATER,. WE FACETIME OUR YOUNGEST TO PASS THE TIME. I POCKET AT LEAST 4 COOKIES. I EVEN MAKE A JOKE I LIKE A $5 GIFT CARD TO MCDONALDS AS COMPENSATION FOR THIS SHIT SHOW. I MADE REPS LAUGH BUT THEY KNOW I WAS SERIOUS ABOUT SUCH AN INCREDIBLE ORDEAL.

 THEY DECIDE TO START THE WHOLE PROCESS FROM SCRATCH. TWO FUCKING HOURS WE WERE THERE. THEY PROCESSED OUR JEEP AS A DOWN PAYMENT AND WE SIGNED A 100 PAPERS. ALL THIS WAS DONE TWICE ALREADY THIS PAST WEEK. BY THE END I LOST MY APPETITE AND SENSE OF HUMOR. THEY OFFER TO PAY FOR OUR DINNER AT THE OUTBACK STEAK HOUSE.

 SO 4 REPS ARE NOW WORKING ON OUR PURCHASE. THEY BRING OUT THE DISTRICT PRESIDENT AND HE APOLOGIZES TO US 20 TIMES SAYING THEY DROPPED THE BALL BIG TIME. BOTH OF US GO BACK AND FORTH AND HE IS COOL TO OUR SITUATION. HE REALLY SEEMED LIKE HE CARED BUT PROBABLY DIDN'T SO I TOOK 2 MORE COOKIES. WE TALK MORE AND THEY SEND US TO FINAL PROCESSING. WE SIGN STUFF BOTH ON A COMPUTER AND ON PAPER. ALL THE COMPUTER STUFF I DID TWICE.

 WE ROLL OUT AND I AM MELANCHOLY. OUR ELDEST HUGS THE JEEP GOODBYE. I ACTUALLY WANT TO JUST GO HOME. WHEELS AND ELDEST DISAGREE SO WE STOP AT THE OUTBACK......45 FUCKING MINUTE WAIT. WE WALK NEXT DOOR TO THE YARD HOUSE. WE HAVE A WONDERFUL MEAL AND THEY HAVE OVER A 100 DRAFT BEERS. SINCE THE TAB WAS ON CARMAX WE FUCKING PILED IT UP. ALL FOOD WAS VERY GOOD AND I RECOMMEND THIS PLACE.

 FUNNY THINGS OR STUFF SAID DURING THE 2 HOUR MEETING : ( MAKING OUR ELDEST LAUGH )

 - MY CELL PHONE RINGS BUT I CAN NOT GRAB MY PHONE BECAUSE OF SO MANY COOKIES BLOCKING IT IN MY POCKET.

 - OVERTIME I MOVED MY BODY YOU COULD HEAR COOKIE WRAPPERS.

 - A SALES REP REMOVES HIS MASK AND LEAVES. i SAY TO WHEELS AND I OUR ELDEST , " I DID NOT EXPECT HIS FACE TO LOOK LIKE THAT. "

 - A LARGE AND SUPER FRIENDLY GREETER WALKS BY ME. I SIMULATE HIS WALK AND ASK WHEELS , " WHO'S FATTER ? "

 - I CONVINCE A SALES REP FOR A $5 GIFT CARD TO MCDONALDS. OH BUY THE WAY MCDONALDS IS HAVING A 63 CENT EGG MCMUFFIN SALE TOMORROW FOR IT ANNIVERSARY.

 - I TOLD THE DISTRICT PRESIDENT I ADDED MORE NOTES TO HIS WHITE BOARD.

 BACK HOME I TRY TO WATCH ONE EPISODE OF ONLY MURDERS IN THE BUILDING. IT WAS 30 MINUTES LONG. I FELL A SLEEP TWICE. THE SHOW DID PICK UP THOUGH.

 THURSDAY     11 - 18 - 21

 AND MORE STUFF HAPPENS TO ME AGAIN.....THIS TIME IT'S GOOD.

 SCOTT MCCLATCHY OF THE BAND THE STAND HAS AGREED TO PERFORM FOR OUR TOY DRIVE ON SATURDAY DECEMBER 4TH. THIS IS PRETTY COOL.

 STEVE HALEY WILL PERFORM WITH HIS BAND KISS OF THE SPIDERS TRIBUTE TO DAVID BOWIE WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 24TH. HIS BASS PLAYER PLAYED WITH DAVID BOWIE FOR YEARS. THIS IS PRETTY COOL.

 MORE CARMAX SHIT............A FEMALE DRIVER SAID SHE COULD NOT GET UP OUR DRIVEWAY WITH HER VAN. ABOUT 3 HOURS LATER OUR FRONT STREET BORDER WAS SMASHED TO THE BEJESUS. COULD THIS BE A COINCIDENCE ?

 I DECIDE TO USE THIS BEAUTIFUL WEATHER. I BEEN STORING 7 LARGE AND LONG RAILROAD TIES IN OUR BACK YARD BEHIND THE GARAGE ( GOT FOR FREE ON FB MARKETPLACE - EASILY $150 A PIECE ). USING THE VAN I HAULED THEM DOWN TO THE CURB AND REPLACED ALL THE BROKEN STREET BORDERS POSSIBLY DESTROYED BY CARMAX.

 SEND BORDER DAMAGE PICTURES TO CARMAX AND DINNER BILL.

 CONGRATS TO BRYCE HARPER WINNING HIS 2ND MVP.

 12 NOON WHEELS AND I HEAD TO CVS TO GET OUR BOOSTERS. ALL KINDS OF CONSTRUCTION DELAY OUR VISIT FOR ABOUT 3 MINUTES. WHEELS GETS OUT OF THE CAR AND WALKS A 1/2 BLOCK TO SAVE 3 MINUTES WHILE I DRIVE AROUND CONSTRUCTION. A WORKER YELLED AT HER. OH , WHEN I ARRIVE 3 MINUTES LATER WE WERE THE ONLY ONES IN LINE. THE SHOTS TOOK ABOUT 1 MINUTE EACH OF OUR TIME AND THAT INCLUDED ME TALKING TO THE UNIVERSITY OF PENN NURSE.

 I HEAD TO THE NAIL TO MEET FOR A BEER DELIVERY. I SPEND ABOUT 1 HOUR STOCKING BEER. I ALSO INSTALL ANOTHER 65' OF L.E.D. STRIP LIGHTS FOR OUR STAGE. I THINK I AM GOING OVER BOARD WITH LIGHTS. ONE MUSICIAN TOLD ME , " YOU CAN NEVER HAVE ENOUGH L.E.D. LIGHTS ". I SENT A VIDEO TO FAMILY AND BARTENDERS. WHEELS TEXTED , " CAN YOU SAY SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER ? ".....SHE HAD A POINT.

 SPEAKING OF WHEELS......I LOST MY CREDIT CARD. I DO THE NORMAL SCRAMBLE AROUND LOOKING IN THE USUAL PLACES.........NOTHING. I AM AT THE NAIL AND ASK HER TO CHECK MY BLUE JEANS......NOTHING.  ABOUT 30 MINUTES LATER SHE TEXTS ME , " IT WAS IN MY WALLET. " I TRY TO TEXT , " SONNA OF A BITCH " BUT MY SPELL CHECK MAKES IT " DONNA OF A BITCH ". I TRY TO JUST TEXT  " SONNA " AND IT AGAINST SPELLS AND SENDS " DONNA ". I DECIDE TO JUST FUCK IT. SHE KNEW WHAT I MEANT.

 BACK HOME WE WATCH AN EPISODE OF ONLY MURDERS IN THE BUILDING. IT IS PICKING UP SPEED AND I LIKE SELENA GOMEZ. SHE IS NOT A KID ANYMORE.

  THREE OF US HAVE DINNER. IT WAS NICE TO JUST CHILL.

 I HEAD BACK TO THE NAIL FOR A LONG NIGHT OF MUSIC AND OPEN MIC CALLED JUST JAM. I GET SURPRISED FROM AN OLD BAND TRAINWRECK AND WHEELSTOCKERS STOPPING IN TO JAM. IT WAS PRETTY FUN TALKING OLD STORIES. I WAS ALSO TEXTING JAY OB !!

 76ERS WITH A NICE WIN.

 FLYERS BLOW A 2 - 0 LEAD THAN TIE THE GAME 3 - 3 WITH 8 SECONDS LEFT THAN LOSE IN A SHOOT-OUT......PRETTY STANDARD GAME.

 I ALLOW A MOUNTAIN HOUSE RENTER TO ARRIVE ONE DAY EARLIER ON ONE CONDITION. SHE CLEAN THE HOUSE BEFORE THEY LEAVE. BOTH PARTIES AGREED.

 THE HEAD I INSTALLED ON THE DRUM BASS WORKED PERFECTLY. NO ONE SAID ANYTHING ABOUT MY MOTHER SHIP OF L.E.D. STRIP LIGHTS ON THE STAGE. IT IS A LITTLE LESS LIGHTS THAN STEVEN SPIELBERG'S MOVIE " CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND. "

 ROLL HOME KIND FIRED UP FROM SOME GOOD THINGS TODAY. I MAKE A MISTAKE AND HAVE A DOUBLE SHOT OF BRANDY. IT'S BEEN SO LONG. I GOT A SUGAR HEADACHE IN THE MORNING........DAMN IT !!

 OH , 24 HOURS LATER NO SYMPTOMS AT ALL FROM THE BOOSTER SHOT. GO TRUMP !!

 ONE LAST THING. BEST COMPANY EVER ? I ORDER A DRUM PATCH FOR $4. I RECEIVE AN EMAIL CONFIRMING ORDER , AN EMAIL OF A THANK YOU , A PRESIDENT EMAIL THANKING ME , AND THAN I ARRIVE AT THE NAIL AND THERE IS A MESSAGE ON OUR PHONE....THE PRESIDENT OF SWEETWATER THANKING ME PERSONALLY. DAMN , THAT IS SOME DAMN GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE. A MUSICIAN I TOLD AGREED AND SAYS HE ORDERS OFF THEM ALL THE TIME AND LOVES THEM.

  FRIDAY      11 - 19 - 21

 OFFICER .........." GET TO YOUR GIG , BUT DON'T SPEED ANYMORE ".

 I TOOK OFF THE CARMAX FRONT LICENSE PLATE. THEY EVEN PLACE A CARMAX STICKER ON THE BACK. I USED MY FINGER NAIL TO SCRAPE OFF THE LETTERS " C " AND " X " SO NOW IT SAYS " ARMA ". I'M OKAY WITH THAT.

 WATCHED ANOTHER EPISODE OF ONLY MURDERS IN THE BUILDING. IT IS GETTING BETTER AND I STILL LIKE TO BANG SELENA GOMEZ FOR 30 SECONDS.

 FOUND OUT THE HITCH ON OUR NEW USED SUV IS NOT THE RIGHT SIZE.....OF COURSE IT ISN'T. I WILL BUY A REDUCER ON EBAY AND HOPEFULLY IT WILL FIT. I ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE MY UTILITY TRAILER.

 SCHEDULED AN OVER HALL ON OUR SODA SYSTEM. TECH CANCELLED. OF COURSE HE DID.

 TO THE BASEMENT.....OH........MY........GOD. OUR ELDEST AND FRIENDS REALLY TRASHED THE PLACE OVER THE LAST SEVERAL MONTHS. I SPENT 2 1/2 HOURS REORGANIZING. I WAS ON MY HANDS AND KNEES RE-LAYING CARPET TILES THAN CLEANED , ORGANIZED , CONSOLIDATED , STACKED , AND VACUUMED THE WHOLE PLACE. I ALSO DID MY TOOL ROOM. IT IS 11AM AND I FEEL LIKE I ALREADY PUT IN A 10 HOUR DAY. IT SUCKS I GOT 8 MORE TONIGHT AT THE NAIL.

 A SIMPLE VACUUMING PISSES ME OFF. I GO TO USE THE BASEMENT VACUUM AND THE BELT IS BROKE. I GO UPSTAIRS AND BRING DOWN ANOTHER VACUUM AND.....THE BELT IS BROKE. I GO UPSTAIRS A 3RD TIME AND GET ANOTHER VACUUM.......IT WORKS.........BLOW.

 OFF TO THE NAIL TO PREP FOR THE NIGHT. A GOOD CROWD CAME IN AND THE BANDS WERE SUPER COOL.

 LEAD SINGER DROPPIN DEUCE STOPPED IN WITH HIS WIFE. SO GOOD TO SEE. I LOVE THE HIS AND HERS SCOOTERS PARKED OUT FRONT. THEY USE THEM IN WILDWOOD ON THE BOARDWALK. THEY WERE REALLY COOL.

 HIRED A NEW BARTENDER TONIGHT. SHE HAD HER FIRST TEST SHIFT.

 THE NIGHT MOVED ALONG PERFECT WITH  ALITTLE HICCUP. A DUO FORGOT HIS GUITAR. HE RACED HOME AND RACED BACK ON THE OVER 1 HOUR ROUND TRIP. WE PUSHED A BAND IN FRONT OF HIM TO BUY SOME TIME. IT WORKED PERFECT EXCEPT HE GOT PULLED OVER FOR SPEEDING. THE COP WAS COOL AND LET HIM GO SAYING , " GET TO YOUR GIG BUT NO MORE SPEEDING. "

 A REALLY GOOD CROWD BUT A CIGARETTE SMOKING CROWD. ALL WERE OUTSIDE SMOKING SINCE I DO NOT ALLOW INDOOR SMOKING ANYMORE.

 ROLL HOME AND HAVE A NIGHTCAP. I WAS SPENT. IN BED BY 3AM.

 ALWAYS ONE NUDGE. A LATE NIGHT REGULAR SAYS TO ME , " SO PBR BEERS WENT UP 50 CENTS ? " I WENT ON A LITTLE RANT ABOUT BEING CLOSED FOR ALMOST 1 1/2 YEARS , COVID , AND LOST REVENUE.

 SATURDAY     11 - 20 - 21

 WORST FUCKING DIRECTIONS EVER !!!!..............

  4 BANDS TONIGHT - 2 BANDS CANCEL DUE TO COVID AND 1 CANCELS BECAUSE THEIR DICKS. I HAVE TO THANK CORNERS OF SANCTUARY FOR STEPPING UP AND PLAYING THE SHOW TONIGHT. THEY WERE ACTUALLY VERY GOOD AND IT WAS GREAT TO SEE PEOPLE COME IN TO SUPPORT THEM.

  WATCHED THE FLYERS BLOW. HEARD THE 76ERS BLEW TOO.

  HEY , THE UNION WON IN THE FIRST ROUND OF PLAY-OFFS AGAINST N.Y.  IT WAS THE LATEST GOAL EVER SCORED IN A M.L.S. SOCCER PLAY-OFF GAME. THAT HAD TO BE FUN FOR THE HOME FANS. OH , I DON'T THINK THE UNION HAS EVER GOT PAST ROUND 2. WE WILL SEE.

 WHEELS BEGINS PREPPING HOUSE FOR THANKSGIVING. I BEGIN EATING.

 WE TAKE A QUICK RIDE JUST 7 MILES TO KING OF PRUSSIA. A WOMAN ON NEXTDOOR WAS GIVING AWAY A " BEHIND THE DOOR SHOE RACK " WHICH OUR ELDEST WOULD LIKE. WHAT A FUCKING NIGHTMARE !!! SHE GAVE US AN ADDRESS TO A FUCKING SHOPPING CENTER !!!! I FELT LIKE THE COPS IN THE BLUES BROTHERS MOVIE WHERE THEY ARE GIVEN THE ADDRESS TO WRIGLEY FIELD. I WAS FUCKING FURIOUS. THE WOMAN CLAIMED TO BE NERVOUS THAT SOMEONE WOULD STAB HER OVER A FREE FUCKING SHOE RACK. SHE DOES NOT GIVE OUT HER FULL ADDRESS. I EMAILED HER 5 TIMES BERATING HER AND NOT BEING TRANSPARENT OR EVEN OPEN TO PERSPECTIVE BUYERS. SHE COULD OF SAID , " HEY , THIS IS A GENERAL ADDRESS. WHEN YOU GET CLOSER I WILL LOOK OFF MY BUILDING'S ROOF FOR YOU AND YOUR CAR TO MAKE SURE YOUR NOT A TERRORIST OR WANT TO BANG MY ASS OR MOTOR BOAT MY TITS..........THAN I CAN THROW THE SHOE RACK OFF THE ROOF FOR YOU TO CATCH. " GOD , I WAS SO FUCKING PISSED. I HATE WASTING TIME !!!!

 ORDERED A TOW REDUCER SLEEVE FOR OUR NEW " USED " CAR AND UTILITY TRAILER. AT A STORE IT COSTS $40. ONLINE..........$16.

 PENN STATE WINS.....DON'T REALLY CARE......THAT MUCH.

 OFF TO THE NAIL WITH MORE SODA CANS SINCE OUR SODA GUNS WERE NOT UPDATED......BLOW.

 SAMPLED SOME CONSHOHOCKEN BEERS WITH BARTENDER AND HER BOYFRIEND.

 TOLD A PATRON I WOULD LEND HIM OUR VAN TO HELP HIM MOVE INTO ANOTHER APARTMENT. YEAH.......IT'S WHAT I DO.

 THE BAND PUT ON A FUN SET. PEOPLE WERE COOL AND I JOKED WITH THEM ALL NIGHT. SOME REGULARS CAME IN TOO. I ALSO LIKE THE 2 YOUNG COUPLES THAT CAME FROM THE FLYERS GAME. THEY ALL HAD FLYERS JERSEYS ON. THE GIRLS WERE F'N SMOKE SHOW BLONDES. DAMN IT TO BE YOUNG AGAIN !!! OH , I ALSO FELT BAD FOR THEM SINCE THE FLYERS SUCKED ASS TONIGHT.

 HMMM , THE WORDS " SUCKED ASS ".....THERE'S A VISUAL.

 ROLL HOME TO MEET UP WITH WHEELS AND ELDEST. WE WATCH AN EPISODE OF ONLY MURDERS IN THE BUILDING. AGAIN........PRETTY GOOD. AGAIN........LIKE TO BANG SERENA GOMEZ.

 HEAD TO BED AND I AM HURTING. I WATCH TV FOR ABOUT 11 SECONDS. IT TOOK MORE TIME TO TURN THE TV ON AND OFF.  THE PUP JOINS ME AROUND 5AM.

 I'M AT AN ELTON JOHN CONCERT. I GOT TO BE UP ON STAGE WITH THE BACK-UP SINGERS WHICH WAS SUPER COOL. I STARTED TALKING TO A GUY NEXT TO ME ABOUT HOW I OWN THE RUSTY NAIL. ALL MY OLD SOFTBALL TEAM MATES ARE IN THE AUDIENCE. THE AUDIENCE GIVES A NICE APPLAUSE TO MY FRIEND L.C. , WHO IS A NURSE , WHEN THEY ANNOUNCED HER NAME AND JOB OCCUPATION. THE STAGE FLOOR MOVES WHILE WE ARE SITTING AND IT STARTS TO MAKE US UPRIGHT. THE SHOW IS ABOUT TO START. I SAY TO THE BACK-UP SINGER SITTING NEXT TO ME , " I GUESS I SHOULD LEAVE NOW ? " HE NODS HIS HEAD YES. HE THAN LEANS TO ANOTHER BACK-UP SINGER NEXT TO HIM AND SAYS , " WE SHOULD GO TO THE RUSTY NAIL AFTER THIS AND ASK ELTON IF HE LIKE TO GO TOO. "..........WHEELS DREAM ENDS.

  SUNDAY      11 - 21 - 21

 THIS WAS A GOOD SUNDAY.............

 TODAY WAS CLEANING , COOKING , AND PREPPING FOR A FAMILY GET TOGETHER FOR THANKSGIVING.

 EARLY MORNING DOING MY NORMAL STUFF.  TAKE A RIDE TO THE NAIL AND PREP FOR TONIGHT. I SPEND ABOUT 90 MINUTES.

 I TAKE A RIDE TO CENTER CITY TO GET OUR YOUNGEST. THE CITY IS MOVING AND TRAFFIC IS PACKED DUE TO THE PHILADELPHIA MARATHON. I SURPRISED OUR YOUNGEST BY BRINGING THE PUP.

 BACK HOME WE SETTLE IN. WHEELS COOKED A TURKEY AND SET-UP THE HOUSE. I UNLOAD CHAIRS AND TABLES WE BROUGHT HOME.

 THE DAY STARTS VERY GOOD AS MY BROTHER STOPPED OVER TO WATCH THE EAGLES. THEY PLAYED EXTREMELY SOLID ( MOST OF THE GAME ) AND CAME OUT WITH A GREAT WIN. IT WAS FUN TO SEE THEM STACK UP YARDS AGAIN VIA THE RUN. THEY DID MAKE IT A LITTLE INTERESTING NEAR THE END BUT I THINK THE SAINTS MADE A FATAL ERROR BY KICKING A FIELD GOAL WITH 6 MINUTES LEFT INSTEAD OF GOING FOR THE TOUCHDOWN ON A 4TH AND 8 YARDS AT THE GOAL LINE. THE FIELD GOAL WAS MEANINGLESS AND STILL MEANT THEY WERE 2 SCORES DOWN. THE SAINTS HAD SOME SERIOUS MOMENTUM BUT OUR QB HURTZ RAN IN FOR A TOUCHDOWN ( HIS 3RD AND A RECORD ) TO REALLY SEAL THE GAME.

 BONUS - COWBOYS LOSE.

 YOUNGEST AND I WALK THE PUP AND PREP A FIRE PIT.

 CLOSE TO 30 FAMILY AND FRIENDS STOPPED BY. IT MADE US FEEL GOOD HOSTING BECAUSE SEVERAL FAMILY MEMBERS WERE SAYING THIS WAS THE BEST THANKSGIVING EVER. I DON'T KNOW ABOUT THAT BUT IT WAS ALOT OF FUN WITH A TON OF LAUGHS AS ALWAYS.

 I CARVED THE TURKEY UP AROUND 6PM. WE HAD 3 DIFFERENT TABLES SET UP IN 2 ROOMS ALONG WITH FOOTBALL ON ( MUTED ) ON 2 TV'S. ALOT OF FAMILY TRAVELED UP TO 3 DIFFERENT LOCATIONS BUT MADE OURS THE LAST. EVERYONE BROUGHT FOOD WHICH MADE IT SO MUCH EASIER. ALL FOOD WAS EXCELLENT AND PEOPLE WERE PRETTY HUNGRY SINCE WE DID NOT REALLY SIT DOWN TO 6:30PM.

 I TRULY APPRECIATED THE FRIENDS WHO STOPPED BY TOO. THEY ARE FRIENDS OF OUR KIDS AND I WAS SUPER SURPRISED WHEN THEY SHOWED UP. I FEEL ALL OF THEM ARE MY DAUGHTERS. THEY ALSO TIMED IT PERFECTLY AS ALL FAMILY LEFT BY 9PM.

 LATE NIGHT ALL THE GIRLS SAT BY A BLAZING FIRE PIT AND I GOT TO CATCH UP ON THEIR COLLEGE EXPERIENCES. I ADORE THESE YOUNG ADULTS SO MUCH.  IT WAS CONSTANT STORY TELLING , JOKING , AND BOOZING FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS. BY 11PM I WAS PRETTY TIRED.

 OVERALL , THIS WAS A REALLY GOOD TIME. FAMILY DROVE IN FROM ALL OVER AND AS FAR AS OCEAN CITY NEW JERSEY AND ALLENTOWN. THESE ARE LONG DRIVES AND SOME FAMILY HAD OTHER FUNCTIONS BEFORE ATTENDING OURS.  IT WAS AS SMOOTHLY AS A GET TOGETHER COULD GO.

 I HAVE TO ADMIT THE EAGLES WINNING AND THE COWBOYS LOSING ALWAYS MAKES A GOOD DAY BETTER.

 FUNNY - MY DAD USES THE TERM " HORNY "  FOR THE  WORD " LUCKY ".  WHILE WATCHING FOOTBALL HE YELLED OUT , " THESE COWBOYS ARE SO HORNY. THEY'LL COME BACK TO WIN. " OH MY GOD.........MY BROTHERS AND NEPHEWS THAN PROCEEDED TO ASK ALL THE GIRLS AND SISTER-IN-LAWS , " ARE HORNY ? DO FEEL WATCHING FOOTBALL MAKES YOU HORNY ? " THE JOKES ROLLED AND I HAD A FUN TIME MESSING WITH MY BROTHERS AND SISTER-IN-LAWS. I ALSO HAD FUN MAKING MIS-DIRECTION JOKES. THE BEST IS MY ONE BROTHER WHO BASICALLY HAS KNOWLEDGE ABOUT EVERYTHING EXCEPT......SPORTS. I RIB HIM ON SPORTS QUESTIONS AND HE RIB ME BACK ON BEING FAT.

 ANOTHER REALLY GOOD THING IS ALL THE KIDS GOT ALONG , PLAYED DOWN THE BASEMENT , AND WERE ZERO AFRAID OF OUR DOG. IN FACT , ALL OF THEM PETTED HER.

 ANOTHER THING I MADE SURE OF WAS MY SISTER-IN-LAWS HAD NO KIDS IN THEIR ARMS OR HANGING ON THEM. I WANTED THEM TO HAVE A HALF GLASS OF WINE AND RELAX SO I ASKED THE NIECES TO OCCUPY THEIR LITTLE COUSINS WHILE THE MOMS HAD A CHANCE TO CHILL. I DO THIS QUITE OFTEN. THE YOUNGER COUSINS STEPPED UP WHILE THE OLDER ADULTS JOKED AROUND IN THE MAIN ROOM. IT WAS NICE TO SEE THE YOUNG COUSINS PLAYING WITH THEIR REALLY YOUNG COUSINS.

 I WAS THE LAST AT THE FIRE PIT AND JUST CHILLED BY MYSELF TO DECOMPRESS. IT WAS A LONG WEEKEND AND SITTING THERE WAS NICE. DURING THE FIRE PIT I HAD THE HOUSE LIGHTS OFF , SOME MUSIC PLAYING , AND WATCHED SOME SILLY BUT FUN TIKTOK VIDEOS. THEY ARE REALLY ADDICTING.

 THESE GET TOGETHERS ARE FEW AND FAR BETWEEN AND I WAS GLAD WE HOSTED IT.  I MUST SAY WHEELS WAS A HUGE PART IN PREPPING FOR THE LAST 3 DAYS.

 INSIDE WHEELS , OUR YOUNGEST , AND MYSELF WATCH AN EPISODE OF ONLY MURDERS IN THE BUILDING. AGAIN , THIS IS KEEPING OUR INTEREST IN THIS WHO DUNNIT TV SERIES.

 OFF TO BED BY 11:45PM BUT UNFORTUNATELY I GOT UP AT 2:30AM. I WROTE THIS BLOG AND SENT OUT EMAILS TO BANDS PLAYING THIS WEEK. OF COURSE I SURFED FB MARKETPLACE AND NEXT DOOR ( INSTALLED ON MY PHONE SO I NEVER RUN INTO A PROBLEM AGAIN WITH DIRECTIONS AND COMMUNICATION ). ANYWAY , IT IS NOW 5:30AM AND I WILL TRY TO GET BACK TO SLEEP WITH THE PUP WHO JOINED ME AT 3AM.

 MONDAY     11 - 22 - 21

 WELP , A COLLEGE ROOM MATE GOT OUR YOUNGEST SICK AND NOW OUR YOUNGEST GOT ME SICK. FOR NOW IT IS JUST A SCRATCHY THROAT.

 THERE IS NO " PITY FOR PAIN ". I SAY THIS ALL THE TIME. NOW , THIS IS ON A SMALL SCALE LIKE WHEN I SAY I HAVE SLEPT 2 HOURS IN THE LAST 3 DAYS. NO ONE REALLY CARES. BUT WHAT THE FUCK !! , A PSYCHO DRIVER PLOWING DOWN A WISCONSIN PARADE ??!!! FIVE PEOPLE DIED WITH MANY INJURED. WHAT A FUCKING WORLD.... AT A FUCKING PARADE ???!!!

  MORE SADNESS AND ANGER IS THE NUT JOB THAT PLOWED INTO SO MANY PEOPLE HAD WARRANTS , JUMPING BAIL , AND A JUDGE LOWERED HIS BAIL ON OTHER ACCOUNTS TO JUST $500. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME !!!!???!!

 IT'S AMAZING THIS DAY AND AGE WE CAN NOT CONTROL ASSHOLES LIKE THESE WHETHER WITH GUNS , DRUGS , OR USING VEHICLES AS BATTERING RAMS.

 NOW MY INSIGNIFICANT LIFE ........I HEAD TO THE NAIL TO MEET UP WITH PEOPLE.

 - HAD ALL SODA LINES COMPLETELY RE-DONE. THE TECH LEAVES AND THE SPRITE LEAKS. OF COURSE IT DOES. I SPEND OVER AN HOUR FIXING IT SO THE TECH DID NOT HAVE TO RETURN.

 - STOP FOR A FB MARKETPLACE EXCHANGE. A 48" FLAT SCREEN TV WITH A MOUNT , REMOTE , AND INSTRUCTIONS. THE GUY WAS SUPER COOL WITH A HUGE HOUSE. HE KNEW THE NAIL AND RENTS A HOUSE ON OUR STREET. HE KNEW ALL OUR NEIGHBORS.

 - MEET BEER DRAFT TECH AND SHE GETS ALL OUR LINES TO POUR. NEXT , LABELING THEM.

 - A FRIEND STOPS OVER AND DELIVERS A SNARE DRUM. WE MAKE AN EXCHANGE WITH SOME OF MY STUFF IN THE BACK STORAGE ROOM.

 - TRYING TO POWER UP AN IPOD TO PLAY FUN SONGS BETWEEN BANDS. I WILL LET IT CHARGE FOR ONE DAY.

 I CHANGE THE MARQUEE AND UPDATE MY FACEBOOK POSTS TO PROMOTE THE BANDS PLAYING HERE.

 AT HOME I SETTLE IN AND DO COMPUTER WORK. I LAY IN BED WITH THE PUP AND OUR YOUNGEST. WE WATCH TV BUT IT WASN'T LONG UNTIL I GOT SUPER TIRED. THE LACK OF SLEEP CAUGHT UP TO ME. ALSO , HAVING A LARGE PORTION OF LEFTOVER TURKEY DID HELP WITH GETTING DROWSY.

 SOME BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS WERE DELIVERED FROM MY BROTHER AND SISTER-IN-LAW WHO MISSED THE THANKSGIVING GET TOGETHER. THERE WAS A MIX-UP ON DATES SO THEY FELT BAD.

 OFF TO CENTER CITY TO DROP OFF OUR YOUNGEST AND FIX A LEAKY FAUCET ALONG WITH CLEANING OUT A STOVE TOP.  IT WAS NICE JUST SPENDING TIME FIXING THINGS TOGETHER. HER ROOM MATES ARE ALWAYS FUN TO SEE TOO. DURING THE RIDE THERE WE GOT TO KNOW OUR NEW USED CAR A LITTLE BETTER. WE PAIRED OUR PHONES TO THE RADIOS SYSTEM. ON THE WAY HOME I PLAYED SPOTIFY.

 MAKE GOOD TIME GETTING HOME. WHEELS , MYSELF , AND ELDEST WATCH 3 EPISODES OF ONLY MURDERS IN THE BUILDING. EPISODE 7 WAS EXCELLENT. THEY FINISHED THE SERIES AND I WILL WATCH THE FINALE LATER.

 76ERS WITH A HECK OF A COMEBACK TO WIN WITH NO STARTERS.

 OFF TO BED. I SLEPT PRETTY BAD. I HAD A FUN TIME USING THE BATHROOM AND COMING BACK TO HEAR AND FEEL MY CPAP TUBE SPEWING OUT WATER. NOTHING LIKE TRYING TO GET BACK TO SLEEP WITH A WET MASK........BLOW.

 A SOFTBALL GAME WHERE HOLLYWOOD AND MYSELF GET RECRUITED TO PLAY. IN MY DAY I LED THE LEAGUE IN DOUBLES , TRIPLES , AND HOME RUNS FOR 5+ STRAIGHT YEARS. ONE PLAYER SAID AFTER MY HOME RUN OVER HIS HEAD , " I HAVE BEEN PLAYING 20 YEARS OF SOFTBALL AND NEVER SEEN A BALL HIT SO FAR. " ANYWAY , HOLLYWOOD HAS A VERY GOOD BACKGROUND AND STATS ON PLAYING BALL ALSO WHICH IS WHY THE TEAM RECRUITED US FOR A FINAL DRIVE TO MAKE THE PLAYOFFS AND MAYBE WIN A CHAMPIONSHIP.

 CONTINUED - IT'S THE MIDDLE OF THE SEASON AND OUR FIRST GAME I SEE HOLLYWOOD MADE IT TO THE FIELD BEFORE ME. HE WAS IN THE BATTING CAGE JUST SMOKING BALLS TO DEEP CENTER FIELD. WE TALKED A LITTLE AND THE COACH SAYS HELLO AND THANKS US FOR SIGNING WITH HIS TEAM.  HE MAKES THE ROSTER LINE-UP AND BOTH OF US LOOK AT EACH OTHER WHEN SEEING THE BATTING ORDER. HOLLYWOOD WAS BATTING 8TH AND I WAS 9TH. I SHRUG A LITTLE AND SAY TO HOLLYWOOD , " I GUESS WE HAVE TO PROVE OURSELVES AT LITTLE BIT. " HE REPLIES , " I GUESS WE DO. "...............dream ends.

 TUESDAY       11 - 23 - 21

 WELP , I TOTALLY JINXED MYSELF BY SAYING I NEVER GET SICK. I CAN NOT REMEMBER THE LAST TIME I FELT BAD. THIS HAS CHANGED AS OUR YOUNGEST IS SICK AND NOW SHE PASSED IT TO ME......BLOW.

 TRIED THE CHICKEN SOUP , MEDS , AFRIN , AND COUGH DROPS FOR THE LAST 48 HOURS. DOES NOT SEEM TO HELP. I ALWAYS FELT MEDS DOES NOT DO DICK AND IT IS JUST YOUR BODY THAT MAKES YOU RECOUP. GO TRUMP !!

 SPEND TIME IN THE EASEMENT PUTTING CARPET TILES BACK TOGETHER AGAIN. I ALSO EMPTY TRASH AGAIN. WHILE IN THE BASEMENT I SEARCH FOR SUPPLIES FOR PROJECTS AT THE NAIL.

 TO THE NAIL BUT FIRST ANOTHER FB MARKETPLACE STOP RIGHT IN ARDMORE. ONE THING THAT BOTHERS ME IS NOT HAVING A WET/DRY VAC ON SITE AT THE NAIL. WELP , NOW I HAVE ONE. I PICKED IT UP JUST 3 MINUTES FROM THE NAIL. I HOSED IT OFF AND LET DRY OUTSIDE. LATER , I USED IT TO CLEAN UP MY PROJECTS. THE REASON I WANTED THIS ONE IS IT HAD DOUBLE THE HORSE POWER AS MINE. I MEAN THIS THING CAN SUCK. YES , IT BE REALLY EASY TO MAKE A JOKE HERE.

 TEST THE TV I PICKED UP VIA FB MARKETPLACE THE OTHER DAY. IT WORK PERFECT. IT CAME WITH A TV MOUNT AND I HUNG IT TODAY IN THE MAIN ROOM. I ALSO RAN CABLE TO IT VIA THE CEILING AND BEHIND A WALL BY SNAKING THE WIRE SO IT CAN NOT BE SEEN. I THOUGHT IT CAME OUT NICE.

 LOOKED AT AND FIXED EVERY BAR STOOL.

 WE HAVE SOME NIGHTS THAT COULD BE PRETTY BIG. WE WILL SEE. IT STARTS WITH WEDNESDAY AND FRIDAY. ONE VERY LOCAL ACT I DID NOT EVEN KNOW WAS BOOKED UNTIL I SAW IT ON SOCIAL MEDIA.

 STOP AT OUR BANK TO GET QUARTERS. THE DRIVE-THRU TELLER SAYS I MUST GO INSIDE EVEN THOUGH I HAVE GOTTEN QUARTERS VIA DRIVE THRU MANY TIMES. I DECIDE NOT TO FIGHT IT.

 I PARK AND 100% OF THE TIME THEY SLIDE ROLLS OF QUARTERS UNDER THE GLASS TO ME. THE TELLER SAID , " JUST HAND ME THE BAG AND I WILL FILL IT. " I WAS RELUCTANT TO IT. I SEE HE COUNTS $80 WHEN I GAVE HIM $100. I TAKE THE BAG OF QUARTERS OVER TO A TABLE AND COUNT THEM.......HE WAS SHORT. MY ANTENNAS WERE RIGHT ON THE MONEY AS I SAID TO THE TELLER , " IT IS SHORT $20. "

 OH , AT THE BANK , IT WAS CUSTOMER APPRECIATION DAY. THEY WERE GIVING OUT FREE CANDIES , CHIPS , AND COOKIES. I TOOK TWO. WHEN THE TELLER MESSED UP.....I TOOK TWO MORE.

 THE PUP AND I HEAD TO THE NAIL. SHE FOLLOWS ME ANYWHERE I GO. THE ONLY THING I DID NOT LIKE IS SHE RAN OUTSIDE WHEN SHE SAW MY NEIGHBOR. LUCKILY HE WAS COOL AND PETTED HER.

 I HAVE TO ADMIT NOT GOING NORTH OR EAST EVERY SUNDAY TO THURSDAY HELPS ME  GET ALOT OF STUFF DONE......THOUGH I RATHER GO NORTH OR EAST.

 AFTER SEVERAL MORE PROJECTS I HEAD BACK HOME.  I PLAY WITH THE PUP OUTSIDE. SHE JUST CRACKS ME UP TO NO END.

 SETTLE IN AND WATCH SOME TV.  FLYERS LOSE....BLOW.

 WE DID WATCH VERY GOOD SHOWS YELLOWSTONE AND THE CONNORS.

 I HIT THE MEDS AGAIN AND FIGHT SLEEP ALL NIGHT.

  WEDNESDAY       11 - 24 - 21

 I SWEAR , THE SHIT THAT HAPPENS TO ME. WE HAVE ONE RULE , " GET IN A FIGHT , DONE FOR LIFE ". THIS WAS IMPLEMENTED TONIGHT.

  HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME. THIS WAS AN INTERESTING DAY AND NIGHT TO SAY THE LEAST.

 WONDERFUL FB POST BY OUR ELDEST ABOUT ME AND MY BIRTHDAY. I COMMENTED " I'M NOT CRYING....MUCH "

 HERE IS THE POST ( WITH A BUNCH OF PICTURES ) :  Happy Birthday to the most caring, big hearted, hard working father in the world! Even though youíre also the biggest nudge in the world, you always support me and inspire me on the daily to work on being the best version of myself and I donít know what Iíd do without you. You always say we joined the dark side as Bracciliís but I think that just makes us more fun 😉 Love you Dad ❤️

 THIS POST WAS MY FAVORITE THING OF THE DAY. WHEELS POSTED ONE TOO WHICH I COULD NOT BELIEVE SHE EVEN KNEW HOW. HERE IS HER POST : " happy birthday chris love you "  SHE ADDED A BUNCH OF PICTURES TOO.

OVER 400 FAMILY AND FRIENDS COMMENTED ON 4 DIFFERENT PAGES OF MINE. IT WAS NCIE TO SEE.

 I CONTINUE TO FIGHT THIS STUFFINESS AND COUGH.  APPARENTLY IT IS GOING AROUND.

 FAMILY COMING IN TO STAY AT OUR HOUSE FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS.

 HEAD TO BROOMALL TO PICK UP A DROP LIGHT. ALL THESE YEARS I NEVER HAD ONE. NOW I DO. THANK YOU FB MARKETPLACE. I BROUGHT IT TO THE NAIL AND CLEANED IT UP A BIT. IT IS PERFECT. I ALSO WANTED SOMETHING TO ILLUMINATE THE WOOD AREA WHEN HAVING A FIRE PIT.

 AT THE NAIL I PREP FOR THE NIGHT. I SCRAMBLE TO FIND KEGS. I CALLED 5 BEER DISTRIBUTORS. THE BEST I COULD DO WAS A 1/4 KEG OF YUENGLING. ALL THAT SCRAMBLING AND I NEVER NEEDED IT. WHY ? , IT WAS A BUST OF A NIGHT. I HAD 3 BARTENDERS AND A DOORMAN PLUS MYSELF BUT ENDS UP IT WAS BAD......REAL BAD. THE DOORMAN I GAVE FF AND THE BARTENDER WE GOT HOME BY 10:30PM

 BACK HOME I SETTLE IN AND TRY TO NAP. THE COUGHING AND STUFFINESS IS BAD.

 I HEAD BACK TO THE NAIL AND BEGIN LOADING IN BANDS. THE FEMALE FRONTED BANDS ARE VERY GOOD. ALL 3 BANDS REALLY PERFORMED VERY GOOD SETS.

 I MEET A GUY WHO HAS RENTED OUR MOUNTAIN HOUSE AND TELLS ME ALL KINDS OF BIG FISH HE HAS CAUGHT. HE SEEMED VERY NICE. KEY WORD " SEEMED ".

 ANOTHER LOCAL COMES IN WHO HAS SOME ISSUES BUT HAS BEEN COOL WHEN HE IS HERE. AT 10PM HE WENT OFF A LONG SPEECH TO MY BARTENDER AND I ON HOW GREAT I AM.....GREAT FATHER , GREAT PERSON , GREAT OWNER.......ETC. THIS WAS AT 10PM. BY 11PM I BANNED HIM FOR LIFE AT THE NAIL.

 SO HERE IS THE STORY. THE FIRST 3 BANDS WERE PROFESSIONAL , ON TIME , AND FUN. ALL OF THE FIRST 3 BANDS HAD FEMALE SINGERS WHICH IS ALWAYS COOL.

 THE FINAL ACT WAS A COMPLETE SHIT SHOW. APPARENT CAR TROUBLES MADE THEM 90 MINUTES LATE. I WAS STILL OKAY WITH THIS.  BUT UPON ARRIVAL THERE WAS NO URGENCY TO GET THE SHOW STARTED. IN FACT , I DON'T THINK THEY PLAYED ONE FULL SONG THE ENTIRE 1 HOUR SET. IT WAS BRUTAL TO SEE AND LISTEN TOO.

 NOW THE FUN PART. I WANT TO LEAVE SO BAD. I DECIDE I WILL GET THIS FINAL ACT UP AND RUNNING AND ROLL OUT. I GET EVERYTHING DONE AND I HEAR , " DON'T FUCKING TOUCH THE FUCKING DRUM KIT !!! ". I THINK THIS IS A JOKE BUT I HEAR IT 3 MORE TIMES. I QUICKLY MOVE FROM THE BACK OF THE BAR TO THE STAGE. APPARENTLY THE LOCAL WANTED TO PLAY THE DRUMS AND GET ON STAGE. HE CAN NOT PLAY DRUMS. THE FATHER OF THE DRUMMER ( WHO IS AT WAWA ) SCREAMS BLOODY HELL TO NOT TOUCH THE DRUM KIT. IT ESCALATED OF COURSE. I GOT THE FATHER TO FINALLY SHUT THE FUCK UP FROM SCREAMING " DON'T TOUGH THE FUCKING DRUM KIT " AND I GOT THE REGULAR OFF STAGE. IT TOOK WAY TOO LONG FOR ME TO DO THIS.

 JUST 1 HOUR AGO THIS REGULAR WAS SAYING HOW GREAT I WAS. HE WOULD NOT GET OFF STAGE SO I KEPT TELLING HIM I AM GOING TO BAN YOU IF YOU DON'T GET OFF THE STAGE NOW. HE WOULD NOT. HE WAS SCREAMING AT ME THAT IT WAS NOT HIS FAULT. HALF OF THAT IS TRUE. BUT HE COULD OF JUST WALKED OFF THE STAGE AND EVERYTHING WOULD OF BEEN FINE. THE FATHER COULD OF STOPPED SCREAMING HIS FUCKING HEAD OFF AND IT WOULD OF BEEN FINE. BUT NO........BOTH ESCALATED IT. I BANNED BOTH FROM THE NAIL AND WILL NOT RENT OUR MOUNTAIN HOUSE TO THE FATHER AGAIN.

 IT WAS A COMPLETE SHIT SHOW. I NEVER SEEN A MORE UNORGANIZED ACT TO FINISH THE NIGHT. I FELT HORRIBLE AND SUGGESTED CANCELLING THE SHOW. I HAD THE FAMILY AND BAND REMOVE THE DRUM KIT AS THE SOLO ACT TALKED AND PERFORMED 30 SECONDS OF ANY SONG HE KNEW. I SWEAR I DO NOT REMEMBER HIM PLAYING A FULL SONG IN OVER 1 HOUR. IT GOT SO BAD WE JUST STARTED TURNING OFF LIGHTS AND TVS. THEY JUST DID NOT GET THE HINT. SO WE MADE LAST CALL AT 12 MIDNIGHT. ALL THIS I AM FIGHTING A COLD.

 THE LAST ACT IS A SUPER NICE GUY BUT TONIGHT WAS HORRIBLE. IT WAS A DAMN SHAME BECAUSE I TRULY THOUGHT THIS NIGHT WAS GOING TO BE GOOD. BY THE END MAYBE 8 PEOPLE WERE WATCHING THE SOLO ACT SING A 20 SECONDS OF BOWIE SONGS.

 FLYERS LOSE , 76ERS LOSE.......BLOW.

  IF YOUR ITALIAN APPARENTLY SEBASTIAN MANISCALCO IS HILARIOUS. SOME FAMILY SAW HIM LIVE TONIGHT AND THEY SAID HIS SET WAS LIKE TALKING ABOUT OUR FAMILY. I AM NOT SURE IF THAT IS GOOD OR NOT. I AM THE BUTT OF EVERY JOKE IN OUR FAMILY AND IT SEEMS THIS COMEDIAN HAD IT DOWN WITH THE ITALIAN TRADITIONS , MANNERISMS , AND MORE.

 ANYWAY , WE ROLL OUT AND GET HOME AROUND 1:30AM. I GO TO BED JUST SO PISSED.

  THURSDAY       11 - 25 - 21

 IT WAS A GOOD DAY............LESS THE COUGHING AND SNIFFLING.

 MY 3RD DAY OF BEING SICK. IT COMES AND GOES BUT IT IS DEFINITELY ANNOYING.  I THINK WHATEVER THIS IS IT SPREADS FAST.

 THE DRUMMER OF THE FATHER SENT A VERY NICE APOLOGY FOR HIS FATHER'S ACTIONS. HMMMMMM.......A KID APOLOGIZING FOR A DAD'S STUPIDITY OF ANGER ?......GO FIGURE. YES IT SHOULD BE THE OTHER WAY AROUND.

 TAKE A RIDE TO THE NAIL WITH MY BROTHER-IN-LAW AND THE PUP. WE HANG TO CLEAN AND DO SOME OTHER SMALL PROJECTS.

 BACK HOME WE PREP OUR FIRE PIT.

 I AM PLEASED THAT MY REDUCER HITCH ARRIVED. I TESTED IT AND IT MATCHES PERFECTLY. THIS PART WILL MAKE OUR NEW " USED " CAR PULL MY UTILITY TRAILER. NOW......HOW TO HOOK UP THE LIGHTS AND TURN SIGNALS ?

 IF YOUR AN EAGLES FAN IT WAS A GOOD DAY FOR FOOTBALL. DALLAS AND SAINTS BOTH LOST.

 FAMILY STARTS TO ARRIVE AND WE HOST ANOTHER WONDERFUL THANKSGIVING DINNER. THE FOOD WAS VERY GOOD AND IT WAS FUN.  I REALLY ENJOYED IT.........LESS THE COUGHING AND SNIFFLING.

 I SHOOT POOL WITH MY DAUGHTERS AND BROTHER-IN-LAW. IT WAS NICE LISTENING TO MUSIC , TALKING , AND WATCHING FOOTBALL.

  DESERTS WERE SERVED BUT I HAD NONE. IN FACT I ONLY HAD ONE GLASS OF WINE ALL NIGHT.

 OUTSIDE I PLAY MUSIC , USE MY NEW DROP LIGHT , FIRE UP THE FIRE PIT , AND SIT AROUND THE FIRE PIT WITH FAMILY. IT WAS SUPER COOL TO TALK TO MY NIECE WHO I ADORE.

 OUR ELDEST WAS IN HER GLORY AS SOME FAMILY PARTAKE IN A MEDICINAL PRODUCT.

 I HEAD TO BED AROUND 10PM. I AM UP TOO DAMN EARLY COUPLED WITH BEING SICK I WAS JUST TOO DAMN TIRED. I SLEEP PRETTY GOOD.

 LATE NIGHT FRIENDS STOP OVER. THEY WATCH TV AND PLAY Q&A GAMES VIA THE TV AND CELL PHONES TOO.

 I AM ON A SIDE-JOB WITH AN OLD FRIEND NAMED " TW ". WE HAVE TO REPLACE A PLAY GROUND'S WOOD TOWER. WE USE ROPES AND TILT THE TOWER UNTIL IT GENTLY FALLS SIDEWAYS. I BROUGHT A POWER MITER AND SUGGEST WE MATCH EACH WOOD SECTION. IT WOULD TAKE A LITTLE LONGER BUT IT STILL BE FAST AND THE POWER MITER CUTS PERFECT.  " TW " COMPLETELY DISAGREES AND I TELL HIM IT IS JUST A SUGGESTION. WE DO NOT HAVE TO DO IT THIS WAY. HE GETS UPSET AND FIRES ME. I GRAB MY POWER MITER AND CIRCULAR SAW WHILE HE DRIVES OFF. I NOW DO NOT HAVE A RIDE BACK TO MY VEHICLE AND I CURSE MYSELF FOR NOT DRIVING TO THIS JOB SITE BECAUSE MY CELL PHONE IS IN MY VAN. I SHOULD OF NEVER DROVE WITH HIM.

 CONTINUED - LEAVING THE PARK I SEE A YOUNG WOMAN CRYING. SHE IS KNEELING DOWN AND A SMALL DOG COMES UP TO HER AS I AM APPROACHING TO INVESTIGATE. I RECOGNIZE WHO IT IS IMMEDIATELY BUT DO NOT LET THE STAR STRUCK POWER HIT ME FOR IT IS JESSICA ALBA THE MOVIE STAR / PIECE OF ASS ACTRESS. I KNEEL NEXT TO HER AND SAY , " HEY , CAN I HELP IN ANYWAY ? " SHE RESPONDS , " I'M LOST AND I DO NOT KNOW MY WAY BACK HOME. " I REPLY , " OK I WILL HELP YOU. " WE USE HER PHONE AND CALL A TAXI. SHE OFFERS TO HELP ME GET BACK TO MY VAN. THE TAXI ARRIVES AND HE POPS THE TRUNK. JESSICA ALBA GETS IN THE FRONT SEAT WHILE I LOAD THE POWER MITER IN THE TRUNK.  I TURN AND WALK AWAY TO GET MY CIRCULAR SAW AND THE TAXI DRIVER TAKES OFF WITH THE TRUNK OPEN. I GRAB THE SAW AND RUN AFTER THE TAXI. I FEAR SOMETHING IS WRONG AGAIN. I SEE TRAFFIC WILL MAKE THE TAXI DRIVER STOP. I RUN UP TO THE TAXI AND THROW MY CIRCULAR SAW IN THE TRUNK.................dream ends.

  FRIDAY    11 - 26 - 21

 40 YEARS AGO.............

 EVER HAVE ONE OF THOSE DAYS WHERE EVERYTHING FALLS TO SHIT ? I HAVE IT ON A DAILY BASIS.

 THE GOOD - THIS MORNING I WATCHED TV WITH MY YOUNGEST WHO SNUGGLED NEXT TO ME AND THE PUP ON MY LAP. THIS WOULD BE THE HIGHLIGHT OF MY DAY.

 I TAUGHT MY YOUNGEST HOW TO MAKE HOME MADE PANCAKES. MY GRAND MOM TAUGHT MY DAD AND MY DAD TAUGHT ME. WE SPENT ABOUT 30 MINUTES MAKING BANANA PANCAKES. THEY CAME OUT VERY GOOD. THE CUTE THING IS WHEN MY KID SAID , " I HAVE TO WORK ON MY LADLING SKILLS. "

 MOTHER-IN-LAW STOPS BY AND WHEELS AND HER DRIVE MY BROTHER-IN-LAW BACK HOME.

 UMBRELLA BLOWS OVER WITH THE TABLE. MAN IT WAS WINDY TODAY.

 MOVED AROUND SOME BANDS TO HELP ONE BAND BOOK AN ENTIRE NIGHT HERE THAT WAS CANCELLED ON THEM BY ANOTHER VENUE.

 FLYERS LOSE......BLOW.

  STARTING TO LOOK FOR EAGLES TICKETS. I LIKE TO GO TO AT LEAST ONE GAME A SEASON. MY BROTHER-IN-LAW MIGHT HOOK ME UP.

 YOUNGEST ORDERS DINNER FROM VIC'S SUSHI. IT'S ONE OF HER FAVORITE RESTAURANTS WHEN SHE IS HOME.

 WE HEAD TO THE NAIL AND PREP FOR THE NIGHT. THIS IS WHERE THE CRAP STARTS. 

 - 2 DRAFTS OUT OF 5 NOT WORKING AGAIN. I CHANGED KEGS AND LINES ALL NIGHT.

 - SODA GUN WHICH WE JUST REPLACED AND UPDATED ARE COMPLAINED ABOUT. THE COKE IS FLAT. I PUT EXTRA ICE ON THE SINK PLATE AND CHANGE AN EMPTY CO2 TANK THAT WAS JUST FILLED 2 DAYS AGO. THESE TANKS SHOULD LAST 6 MONTHS. MINE LASTED 2 DAYS. I WAS FURIOUS WHEN I FOUND THE TANK DID NOT HAVE A WASHER INSTALLED. IT BASICALLY LEAKED EMPTY FOR 2 DAYS. I WENT TO 7/11 TO PURCHASE SODA....AGAIN.

 OH , MOST MISERABLE WORKERS AT 7/11. NO WONDER WAWA KICKS THERE ASS. THEY JUST DON'T CARE.

 - PA SYSTEM - ONE LEAD SINGER BASICALLY WHISPERED WHEN SINGING. I FOUGHT THIS THE WHOLE SET AND FEED BACK ALL NIGHT. I WAS FURIOUS.

 THE NIGHT STARTED PRETTY GOOD WITH ABOUT 30 PEOPLE IN THE BEGINNING OF THE NIGHT BUT THAN JUST FIZZLED OUT BIG TIME.

 THE COOL THING WAS A DUO WHO PLAYED THE NAIL 40 YEARS AGO. ONE WOMAN SAID SHE BARTENDED HERE 40 YEARS AGO AND THE DUO SANG A NAIL SONG. BOTH WERE VERY COOL.

 I ROLL OUT BY 10:30PM BECAUSE IT WAS SO SLOW.

AT HOME WHEELS AND I WATCH ANOTHER EPISODE OF COWBOY BEBOP. THE TV SERIES IS ACTUALLY PRETTY GOOD. I WAS RELUCTANT AT FIRST.

 WALK THE PUP AND HEAD TO BED. TOMORROW I HAVE TO GO TO THE NAIL AND TRY TO FIX ALL 3 THINGS. I WAS TEXTING WITH THE SODA TECH AND I WASN'T HAPPY.

  SATURDAY      11 - 27 - 21

 I'M REALLY ENJOYING TIME WITH OUR YOUNGEST. IT HAS BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE SHE HAS STAYED AT OUR HOUSE FOR MORE THAN 2 DAYS STRAIGHT.

 WE WATCH MORE EPISODES OF COWBOY BEBOP. I'M GETTING INTO IT ( LESBIAN SCENES HELP ) .

 " DAD , CAN MY FRIENDS HAVE A FIRE PIT TONIGHT ? " - YES

 " DAD , CAN MY FRIEND PARK HIS MOTORCYCLE IN OUR GARAGE ALL WINTER ? " - YES

 " DAD , CAN MY 2 FRIENDS USE THE JACUZZI ? " - YES

 " DAD , CAN MY FRIEND USE OUR SHOWER ? " - WELL , SINCE HIS BALLS WERE IN OUR JACUZZI EARLIER.........YES.

 OFF TO THE NAIL TO PREP AND TRY TO FIX ALL THE SHIT THAT WENT WRONG THE PREVIOUS NIGHT. I BROUGHT THE PUP AND SPENT TIME ADJUSTING THE PA SYSTEM , TURNING OFF THE WALK-IN FRIDGE ( 22 DEGREES !! ) , RE-CHECKING SODA GUNS ( TECH NEVER SHOWED ) , CHANGED THE MARQUEE ( BEING INSIDE GATHERING LETTERS IS MUCH WARMER - WHY DID I NOT DO THIS IN THE PAST ? ) , AND PLAYING HIDE & SEEK WITH THE PUP.

  BACK HOME I SETTLE IN AND SEARCH FOR EAGLES TICKETS. IT LOOKS LIKE I GOT AN OKAY TO GOOD DEAL.  FIRST LEVEL SEATS , 13TH ROW FROM THE FILED FOR $180 AND COMES WITH PARKING PASS. FACE VALUE FOR THESE SEATS ARE $197 PLUS TAXES , TRANSFERS , PRINTING OUT ON PAPER , ETC.  I AM NOT SURE I EVER SPENT MORE THAN $150 BUT THE PARKING PASS HELPED SEALED THE DEAL. TOMORROW I WILL SEE IF IT GOES THROUGH.

 SNUGGLED WITH MY PUP AND YOUNGEST ...........FOR 4 MINUTES. I ASK MY KID , " I HAVE 4 MINUTES UNTIL TO I GO TO THE NAIL , CAN YOU SNUGGLE WITH ME ? " I HEAR A GROAN. SHE COMPLIES WRAPPED IN A COMFORTER AND PLOPS ON ME. I ASKED WHEELS TO TAKE A PICTURE SO I COULD POST IT ON FACEBOOK. WHEELS SAYS , " NO " AND MY YOUNGEST SAYS , " YOU CAN'T HAVE BOTH. YOU ALREADY DID THE PANCAKE ONE. " WE LAUGHED.

 HEAD TO THE NAIL AND FULLY PREP. ONE DRUMMER WAS EARLY ( GRRR ) AND WE BEGIN THE SHOW. FOUR BANDS TONIGHT AND I REALLY LIKED ALL OF THEM. I POSTED A VIDEO OF A 20 YEAR OLD LEAD GUITARIST WHO JUST SHREDDED WITH HIS DAD ON STAGE. I ALSO LIKE THE BLONDE GIRLFRIEND WHO PLAYED THE DRUMS.

 AGAIN , THE MUSIC WAS REALLY REALLY GOOD. I ENJOYED HANGING WITH A RADIO SHOW HOST FOR MOST OF THE NIGHT.

 THE NIGHT MOVED PERFECTLY AS A DRUMMER SHARED HIS KIT WITH ALL THE BANDS. THIS REALLY HELPS CHANGING OUT BANDS.

 PENN STATE LOSES. GIVE COACH A 10 YEAR 75 MILLION DOLLAR CONTRACT. MUST BE NICE.

 BACK HOME I FORGOT TO EAT DINNER. THIS IS NOT GOOD TO EAT AT 12:45AM BUT I MADE ENGLISH MUFFIN PIZZAS. I DID NOT DRINK BOOZE. I AM FINDING OUT I CAN NOT DRINK LIQUEURS OR WHISKEYS ANY MORE. I GUESS THIS IS GOOD.

 WALK THE PUP AND PLAY WITH HER OUTSIDE. THAN WE CHILL A LITTLE BIT WHILE WATCHING TV. I WATCH THE END OF SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE AND HEAD TO BED WITH THE PUP. I ACTUALLY THOUGHT KIM KARDASHIAN AND FAMILY WERE COOL IN ONE JUDGE/COURT ROOM SKIT.

 FIVE MINUTES LATER MY YOUNGEST COMES IN. SHE SAYS HELLO AND TAKES THE PUP. SHE ALSO STOPPED AT A LOCAL PUB WITH HER SISTER TO HAVE A NIGHTCAP.

  SUNDAY    11 - 28 - 21

 AND NOW I DON'T FEELING LIKE GOING TO AN EAGLES GAME..............WHAT A BRUTAL FUCKING LOSS. ( AGAIN )

 WHEELS AND I TAKE A RIDE TO MEET A NICE GUY TO EXCHANGE FOR EAGLES TICKETS. HE IS VERY COOL AND WE TALK FOR ABOUT 15 MINUTES. THE VENMO EXCHANGE IS DONE AND I FEEL GOOD ABOUT THE EAGLES TICKETS AND OUR CHANCES OF OUR TEAM MAKING LITTLE PUSH WITH A FAVORABLE SCHEDULE. THIS IS AT 11AM.

 BACK HOME A NICE BREAKFAST. THIS IS AT 11:30AM

 WHEELS AND YOUNGEST SET-UP THE CHRISTMAS TREE. THIS IS AT 12:30PM.

 1PM - DON'T TALK TO ME , DON'T LOOK AT ME , DON'T CALL ME.........BECAUSE IT IS EAGLES VERSE GIANTS TIME.

 4PM - WORST GAME I EVER WATCHED IN EAGLES HISTORY. I MEAN HOW CAN WE KEEP TOPPING OUR WORST GAMES EVER ? IT FELT LIKE WE WERE LOSING 27 - 0 BY HALFTIME BUT IT WAS ONLY 3 - 0. EAGLES HAD A 1ST AND GOAL AND DECIDE QUARTERBACK SNEAKS WILL NOT WORK AND MAKE HORRIBLE PLAY CALLING DECISIONS. THEY COME OUT WITH 0 FUCKING POINTS BECAUSE OF AN INTERCEPTION. HALFTIME - 3 - 0. I AM SICK TO MY STOMACH.

 I AM THINKING , " OK , THIS COULD BE " THE TALE OF 2 HALVES ". EAGLE SCORE ON A 100 YARD RUSHING IN 3RD QUARTER AND DRIVE TO MAKE IT 10 - 7. GIANTS KICK A FIELD GOAL AND THE DEFENSE IS PLAYING PRETTY SOLID. IT IS NOW 13 - 7 AND STILL WINNABLE. WE DON'T DESERVE TO WIN BUT WE CAN DEFINITELY STEAL THIS GAME. I MEAN DECENT TEAMS WIN AND BAD TEAMS LOSE. THE GIANTS ARE BAD.

 A FINAL DRIVE ( WE THOUGHT ) AND WE FUMBLE......SICKENING.

 THE DEFENSE HOLDS AND EAGLES GET THE BALL BACK. THE FINAL DRIVE HAS 3 VERY VERY VERY VERY CATCHABLE BALLS .......DROPPED. ONE DROP BY REAGOR ON THE GOAL LINE WAS SO PAINFUL IT PHYSICALLY HURT.  TO SEE THE BALL GO RIGHT THROUGH HIS HANDS WAS JUST INTOLERABLE. HOW THE FUCK DOES A NFL RECEIVER LET A BALL GO THROUGH YOUR HANDS ??? THE PREVIOUS PASS REAGOR DROPPED IT AND IT HIT HIM IN THE FUCKING FACEMASK !!! ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME ?? THE BALL HITS YOUR FUCKING FACEMASK ??? LIFT UP YOUR FUCKING HANDS !!!! THIS IS THE 2ND TIME I HAVE SEEN A BALL HIT REAGOR'S MASK.

 THIS WAS A BRUTAL GAME TO WATCH. IT MADE ME SO DAMN DEPRESSED. HOW THE FUCK DOES THE PLAY CALLING BE SO GOOD AND SO BAD IN ONE GAME ? THE 4 FUCKING TURNOVERS WAS KILLER. EAGLES PROVED THEY ARE NOT A GOOD TEAM AND THEY AGAIN , AS ALL PHILLY TEAMS DO , ......SUCKED US IN. IT WAS DEVASTATING TO THE SEASON FOR MAKING A RUN AT THE PLAYOFFS. A WIN WOULD BE A 56% CHANCE. THIS HEART CRUSHING GUT PUNCHING LOSS NOW DROPS OUR ODDS TO 24%. I SERIOUSLY WANT TO SELL MY TICKETS I JUST BOUGHT 5 HOURS AGO. THAT IS HOW BAD I FEEL.

  TEST OUR NEW SUV'S TOW WIRES TO MY UTILITY TRAILER. IT IS WORST THAN THE JEEP'S. OF COURSE IT IS.

 OFF TO THE NAIL AND PREP FOR THE NIGHT.

 BACK HOME I SHOWER AND SHAVE. WE HEAD OUT TO A WONDERFUL ITALIAN RESTAURANT CALLED TECA NEWTOWN SQUARE. THE FOOD , AMBIANCE , AND SERVICE IS EXCELLENT. IT IS ALSO ALITTLE PRICEY. MY BROTHER AND HIS WIFE JOINED US. IT WAS A VERY GOOD TIME.

 UNION STEP UP AND WIN AN EXCITING OVERTIME SHOOT-OUT IN THE SEMIFINALS. THEY ADVANCE TO THE CHAMPIONSHIP FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER. HEY FLYERS.......YOU SHOULD WATCH THEIR SHOOT-OUT.

 BACK HOME WE PLAY WITH THE PUP AND WATCH A TRUE STORY MOVIE CALL FATHERHOOD. IT WAS GOOD AND VERY SAD. A FATHER HAS TO RAISE HIS NEWLY BORN DAUGHTER ALONE. IT IS BASED ON A BOOK " 2 KISSES FOR MADDIE: A MEMOIR OF LOSS AND LOVE. " HE DID RE-MARRY AND HIS LIFE CHANGED AGAIN WHEN HIS BOOK GOT PUBLISHED TO A MOVIE.

 I FEEL BAD BECAUSE I WANT TO HANG OUT MORE WITH MY YOUNGEST BUT I AM TOO TIRED TO SHOOT POOL.......DAMN IT.

 OFF TO BED AND MY CELL PHONE KEEPS GOING OFF.

 I FINALLY FALL ASLEEP. I WOKE UP WITH SAHARA DRY MOUTH 3 DIFFERENT TIMES. I DID LISTEN TO SPORTS TALK THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT AND FROM 4AM TO 6:30AM.  THE EAGLES COACH AND RECEIVER REAGOR ARE GETTING  RIPPED NEW ASSHOLES.

 OH , ANYONE WATCH EAGLES POST GAME ?? SETH JOYNER WAS LIVID.

  MONDAY       11 - 29 - 21

 MATT......MATT......MATT......MATT........MATT.........MATT..........MATT........MATT......MATT......MATT......MATT..........WORST EXPERIENCE EVER !!!!!!

 I AM GOING TO WRITE ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE AND ONLY THIS FUCKING EXPERIENCE ON TODAY'S BLOG. NOTHING ELSE.........OH MY GODDDDDDDDDD!!!!!!!! YOU CAN FEEL MY PAIN WHEN READING THIS.

 I WAS SO FUCKING FLUSTERED TODAY WITH ONE GUY NAMED MATT KELLY FROM NEW YORK. HE WORKS AT VERIZON FIOS. HE COULD BE THE MOST ANNOYING EMPLOYEE ON THE PLANET.......NOT CITY.........NOT STATE ........NOT COUNTRY.............FUCKING PLANET !!

  SO , HERE IS THE PROJECT. MAKE SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS LINK WITH NEW PURCHASED ROUTER. THAT'S IT. WELL , APPARENTLY THIS IS A FUCKING NIGHTMARE AND IT INVOLVES A SHITLOAD OF TECHS AND TIME TO CHANGE OVER IP ADDRESSES , ROUTER ADDRESSES , INTERNAL ADDRESSES , EXTERNAL ADDRESSES , GRAND MOM'S DRESSES , HOUSE ADDRESSES , SALAD DRESSES , WINDOW DRESSES..........WHAT A FUCKING CRAZY BAT SHIT WAY TO DO STUFF.

PHONE CALL TO MY CAMERA COMPANY......OVER AN HOUR AND HALF WAIT. I DECIDED TO USE THE " CALL BACK " FEATURE. THE FUNNY THING IS THEY CALL YOU BACK VIA AUTOMATED COMPUTER AFTER 90 MINUTES. THAN......I WAS ON HOLD ABOUT 30 MINUTES MORE. I FELT LIKE JERRY SEINFELD , " I MADE THE RESERVATION , YOU JUST DIDN'T HOLLLLLLLDDDDD THE RESERVATION ". I TALK TO THE TECH WHO I KNOW AND IT MOVES ALONG QUICKLY. I WOULD OF NEVER FIGURED OUT HOW TO CHANGED IP ADDRESSES AND PORT NUMBERS. HOW THE FUCK THE " NORMAL " PERSON DOES THIS IS BEYOND ME.

 MY 3 FINAL QUESTIONS TO THE CAMERA TECH WHO WILL NOW CALL ME BACK ( MY IDEA AND REQUEST ) TOMORROW TO CHECK UP ON ME.  THE FINAL 3 QUESTIONS ARE THE SAME , " IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I NEED TO DO BEFORE CALLING VERIZON FIOS......ANYTHING ELSE ???? " I ASKED THIS 3 TIMES AND ALL ANSWERS ARE , " NO , YOU WILL BE GOOD ONCE THEY CHANGE THE PORT NUMBERS. " ME ......" WHAT THE FUCK IS A PORT ? "

 NEXT I CALL VERIZON FIOS. OVER A 1 HOUR WAIT SO AGAIN I USE THE " CALL BACK " SYSTEM. THEY CALL ME BACK IN 40 MINUTES WHICH IS GOOD BUT PUT ME ON HOLD FOR 30 MINUTES WHICH IS NOT GOOD.

 NOW , TO FUCKING MATT AND GOD FORBID DON'T CALL HIM MATTHEW.

 I GET VERIZON REP MATT KELLY FROM NEW YORK. I INSTANTLY KNOW HE IS A " TALKER ". LITTLE DID I KNOW HE WAS THE MOUTH OF THE WORLD TALKER. I AM TELLING YOU I HAVE NEVER EVER HEARD ANYTHING LIKE THIS. I REALLY DO NOT KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN. IT FUCKING PISSED ME OFF TO NO END. THE STORY IS QUITE UNBELIEVABLE.

 - I FIRST TRY TO EXPLAIN OUR SITUATION ABOUT LOSING A GOOD SIGNAL FOR 2 YEARS AND DECIDING ON GETTING RID OF OUR OLD ROUTER ( ONLY 2 YEARS OLD ) AND EXTENDER. I AM NOT 10 WORDS IN WITH EXPLAINING AND MATT " THE SUPER TALKER " INTERRUPTS ME. HE GOES OFF ON A RANT ABOUT HOW TECHNOLOGY HAS CHANGED. HE ALSO TELLS ME IN ANOTHER RAMBLE I WILL NEED AN EXTENDER AGAIN. THREE OTHER TECHS SAID I DIDN'T.

 - I TRY A 2ND TIME TO EXPLAIN OUR SITUATION. MATT KELLY OF NEW YORK OF VERIZON FIOS GOES OFF AGAIN ABOUT HOW COVID IS AFFECTING PEOPLE'S HOME AND WORKING ALONG WITH CONCRETE WALLS THAT SIGNALS CAN'T GO THROUGH. EACH EXPLANATION IS NO SHORTER THAN 60 SECONDS. NOT ONE TIME IS IT A 1 OR 2 WORD ANSWER FROM MATT KELLY OF VERIZON FIOS NEW YORK DIVISION.

 - A 3RD ATTEMPT AND HE INTERRUPTS AGAIN. I TRY TO STOP HIM AND SAY , " MATT ......MATT.......MATT.......MATT......MATT......MATT....." 20 TIMES BUT HE JUST RAMBLES ON ABOUT EQUIPMENT AND SERVICES. I CAN NOT GET A FUCKING WORD IN.

 - THE 4TH ATTEMPT AND NOW WE ARE TALKING AT THE SAME TIME. I SAY FUCK IT. I AM JUST GOING TO KEEP TALKING UNTIL I GET MY EXPLANATION IN. HE FUCKING TALKS SO I FUCKING TALK. HE TALKS ,  I TALK. WE TALK SIMULTANEOUSLY FOR A SOLID 60 SECONDS. I AM TELLING YOU TO TRY THIS WITH A FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER. JUST BOTH TALK AT EACH OTHER FOR 60 SECONDS EACH. IT WAS FUCKING INSANE !!

 - THE 5TH TRY - I SAY , " MATT , CAN I JUST EXPLAIN OUR SITUATION AND THAN YOU CAN TELL ME HOW TO FIX IT ? " HE INTERRUPTS AGAIN AND I SCREAM , " MAAAATTTTTTTTTTTTTT  !!!!!!  MAAAATTTTTTTTTTTTTT  !!!!!! MAAAATTTTTTTTTTTTTT  !!!!!! I NEED YOU QUIET FOR 30 SECONDS !!!! " HE SHUTS UP FOR 10 SECONDS AND I ONLY EXPLAIN HALF OUR PROBLEM WITH ROUTER , CAMERAS , AND SIGNAL STRENGTH. HE GOES OFF ON A 5 MINUTE SUPER TECHNOLOGICAL TUTORIAL ANSWER ON WHY I AM HAVING THESE PROBLEMS. I DO NOT FUCKING CARE ONE SHIT HOLE ON WHY THIS IS HAPPENING I JUST CARE HOW TO FIX IT.

 - I TELL HIM HE MUST SHUT UP AND LET ME EXPLAIN. AFTER 7 ATTEMPTS HE GIVES ME 30 SECONDS TO EXPLAIN THE WHOLE SITUATION.

 I SAY , " MATTHEW .....YOU HAVE TO GIVE ME A CHANCE TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTIONS OR EXPLAIN OUR SITUATION. HE FUCKING INTERRUPTS AGAIN !!!!! AND GOES OFF A RANT ABOUT HOW HIS DAD IS MATTHEW AND NOT HIM.  THIS LAST ANOTHER 60 SECONDS. YOU KNOW 1 MINUTE DOES NOT SOUND LONG BUT TALKING FOR 1 MINUTE MULTIPLE TIMES OVER AND OVER AND OVER ADDS UP TO BE A TOTAL DICK.

 HE TAKES OVER MY COMPUTER VIA REMOTE. HE CALLS ANOTHER SPECIFIC SPECIALIZED VERIZON TECH. I AM FUCKING LIVID AT THIS POINT AND JUST BE QUIET. HE IS THE GO-BETWEEN IN ALL THIS SHIT SHOW. HE IS SUPER " FOLLOW THE RULE " WHEN THE OTHER TECH JOINS OUR CONVERSATION. HE SAYS THINGS LIKE , " TECH HAMAD , THANK YOU FOR JOINING US. I AM WITH CUSTOMER 184555999 CHRIS BRA _ _ _ _ _ ....... WITH TICKET # NUMBER 8748907645890764. I AM MATT KELLY OF THE VERIZON FIOS DIVISION IN NEW YORK. I WILL BE ASSISTING IN THIS CALL. THE TECH ANSWERS , " OK. "

 THE TECH ASKS ME SOME QUESTIONS BUT MATT KELLY OF VERIZON FIOS NEW YORK DIVISION ANSWERS THEM. I ACTUALLY SAY TO THE TECH , " DO YOU JUST WANT MATT TO ANSWER THE QUESTIONS." THE TECH SAYS , " I RATHER HAVE YOU RESPOND. " MATT KELLY OF VERIZON FIOS NEW YORK DIVISION INSTANTLY CHIMES IN ON A LONG EXPLANATION THAT HE IS HERE TO HELP AND ASSIST. HE ACTUALLY THINKS HE'S POLICE OR MEDIC OR AQUAMAN OR SOMETHING REALLY IMPORTANT. HE HAS NO CLUE HE IS AN ASSHOLE. I TRULY WANT TO PULL HIS TONGUE OUT AND SHIT ON IT.

 IT ENDS UP I NEED " INTERNAL " IP ADDRESSES FOR EACH AND EVERY SECURITY CAMERA. MATT KELLY OF VERIZON FIOS NEW YORK DIVISION EXPLAINS THIS TO ME 5 DIFFERENT TIMES AND BELITTLES ME WHEN I DO NOT CARE OR EVEN UNDERSTAND. THE TECH HANGS UP AND MATT KELLY OF VERIZON FIOS NEW YORK DIVISION ACCESSES MY SURVEILLANCE COMPANY'S WEBSITE THAT DOES OURCAMERAS. THERE IS A VIDEO ABOUT " ADDING " CAMERAS AND NOT " ROUTER CHANGING ".  HE GOES OFF ON AN EXPLANATION THAT MY ANSWER IS RIGHT THERE. I RESPOND , " MATT , LIKE I SAID SEVERAL TIMES , I AM NOT GOOD WITH COMPUTERS AT ALL. SINCE THE ANSWERS ARE RIGHT HERE , CAN YOU UPDATE THE INFORMATION SINCE YOU ARE USING MY COMPUTER? " HE GOES OFF ON A 2 MINUTE ANSWER THAT I STILL NEED TO GET THE INTERNAL IP ADDRESSES.

 I ASK REPEATED QUESTIONS AND HE EXPLAINS TO ME IN THE " YOU'RE AN IDIOT " TONE , " I TOLD YOU THIS ALREADY YOU JUST NEED TO........" AND GOES OFF FOR ANOTHER 2 MINUTES OF ANSWERING. I HAVE WASTED 5 HOURS THIS MORNING ON A SIMPLE ROUTER CHANGE FOR SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS.

 MY YOUNGEST NEEDS A RIDE BACK TO CENTER CITY.  IN THE MIDDLE OF MATT KELLY OF VERIZON FIOS NEW YORK DIVISION I SAY EXTREMELY SUPER VIOLENTLY QUICKLY , " MATT, IGOTTAGIVEMYKIDARIDEBACKHOME. IWILLCALL VERIZONTOMORROWONCEITALKTOOURCAMERATECHNICIAN.GOODBYE "  ( YES I PURPOSELY WROTE THOSE WORDS WITH NO SPACES BETWEEN SO YOU GET AN IDEA ON HOW FAST I SAID IT ).   I AM TELLING YOU I SAID THAT WHOLE RESPONSE IN LESS THAN 1/2 OF A MILLI-SECOND..,......AND HUNG UP THE PHONE WITH THE FORCE OF A GORILLA THROWING SHIT ON A GLASS PARTITION.

 I WAS SO FUCKING UPSET AND FRAZZLED. I TELL THE STORY TO WHEELS AND OUR YOUNGEST. I DRIVE MY YOUNGEST BACK TO CENTER CITY. I TELL HER THE INSANITY OF THAT PHONE CALL THE ENTIRE RIDE. I NEVER EVER EXPERIENCED ANYTHING LIKE IT. IT WAS FUCKING CRAZY.

 MATT KELLY OF VERIZON FIOS NEW YORK DIVISION WOULD NOT SHUT THE FUCK UP AND NEEDS A COCK IN HIS MOUTH. I AM NOT GAY BUT IF I WERE IN AN OFFICE WITH HIM I WOULD WHIP OUT MY DICK , SLAP HIS FACE , TEABAG HIS NOSE , AND FORCE MY PENIS DOWN HIS THROAT LIKE A ANACONDA EATING A CAPYBARA. YES......I WOULD DO THAT IF IT MEANT ONE OTHER VERIZON CUSTOMER WOULD BE SPARED THIS DICKHEAD'S RANTING.

 OH , I CHECK MY EMAILS JUST AS I AM ABOUT TO LEAVE FOR CENTER CITY AND ONE EMAIL COMES IN AND SAYS , " HOW WAS YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH OUR VERIZON TECHNICIAN TODAY ? PLEASE FILL OUT THIS SURVEY SO WE CAN GET BETTER OURSELVES AS A COMPANY AND WITH SERVICE. " I TURN TO MY YOUNGEST AND SAY , " CAN YOU GIVE ME 15 MINUTES BEFORE WE LEAVE PLEASE ? "

 WITH GOD , BUDDHA , BABY JESUS , AND YODA AS MY WITNESSES I USED THE " F " WORD AT LEAST 20 TIMES IN THE FILLING OUT OF THIS SURVEY ALONG WITH USING THE NAME OF MATT KELLY OF VERIZON FIOS NEW YORK DIVISION 20 TIMES. IT WAS THE ONLY THING THAT FELT GOOD IN THE LAST 5 1/2 HOURS.

 TUESDAY     11 - 30 - 21

 OKAY , SO I HAVE COME DOWN OFF THE ANGER TRAIN OF MATT KELLY OF VERIZON FIOS NEW YORK DIVISION. BACK TO MY NORMAL CRAP.

 MOUNTAIN HOUSE HAS A LEAK AT THE WATER HEATER AND NOW A LEAK ON THE CEILING OF THE 1ST FLOOR BATHROOM. ALSO , THE ALARM NOW NEEDS TO BE SET VIA A " BYPASS ". YEP.........ALWAYS SOMETHING.

 BE THERE IN A COUPLE OF MINUTES.........LIAR. FB MARKETPLACE STRUCK AGAIN WITH A VERY NICE DIGITAL DUAL WINDOW FAN. THE PEOPLE TOLD ME TO MEET AT 10:45AM. I ARRIVED AT 10:40AM. THEY TOLD ME , " THAT'S FINE. WE ARE JUST A COUPLE OF MINUTES AWAY. " THEY SHOW UP AT 11:05. I WAS ACTUALLY STARTING TO DRIVE AWAY WHEN THE WIFE WAVED AT ME TO STOP.

 ON THE PHONE WITH VERIZON FIOS AGAIN. ANOTHER 3 HOURS AND MOVING OUR ROUTER TO THE UPSTAIRS AREA. THE TECH " GRIM " WAS SUPER SUPER COOL. WE COULD NOT GET OUR CAMERAS TO WORK SO AS A BACK UP HE IS SENDING OUR OLD ROUTER BACK TO US......WHEN THEY ALL WORKED. ZMODO TECH WILL CALL ME TOMORROW TO SEE IF THEY CAN FIX IT. OH , I HAD TO GET A LADDER OUT AND TAKE DOWN OUR WIRELESS CAMERA ON TOP OF THE GARAGE ROOF. IT HAD TO BE PLUGGED IN DIRECTLY TO THE NEW ROUTER. WE DID GET THIS TO WORK. WHAT A FRIGGIN' NIGHTMARE AND I WONDER HOW REGULAR PEOPLE OR OLD PEOPLE FIGURE ALL THIS SHIT OUT ?

  I HAVE NOT BEEN TO READING TERMINAL MARKET IN YEARS. MY YOUNGEST AND I STOPPED AT 6 DIFFERENT LOCATIONS FOR ROASTED PORK WITH BROCCOLI RABE , ITALIAN HOAGIE , CANDY , SHRIMP FRIED RICE , AND SLEEP DROPLETS CALLED " HIT THE HAY " ( THEY DID NOT WORK ). I HAD A GREAT TIME. THIS PLACE IS SO COOL AND BEEN AROUND SINCE 1893. I DROVE BACK TO HER COLLEGE HOUSE.

 BUILDING A TOY DRIVE SHOW FOR THIS SATURDAY. I ADDED SCOTT McCLATCHY OF THE STAND AND MOONROOF.

 CHRISTMAS EVE AND CHRISTMAS FALL ON A WEEKEND....NOT GOOD FOR A BAR OWNER.

 NEW YEARS EVE AND NEW YEARS DAY FALL ON A WEEKEND.....NOT GOOD FOR A BAR OWNER.

 THE VARIANT AND OMICRON ( WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT ? ) SPIKING CRAZILY. WHO THE HELL DO WE BELIEVE ? OUR WHOLE FAMILY GOT BOOSTERS.

 FLYERS....BLOW.  76ERS BARELY WIN OVER A TEAM THAT IS 3 - 17.......BLOW.

 WATCHED SOME EPISODES OF COWBOY BEBOP. EPISODE #9 WAS EXCELLENT ( ALMOST BANSHEE-LIKE ). ALSO WATCHED YELLOWSTONE......VERY GOOD.

 PLAYED 2 GAMES OF INTERNET POKER. ONE WAS FOR 50K AND 6 PLAYERS. I WON THAT. THE 2ND WAS FOR 100K AND 9 PLAYERS. I WON THAT. MAN , IF THIS WAS ONLY REAL MONEY.

 MY BROTHER WAS OVER WATCHING FOOTBALL WITH ME. A POKER COMMERCIAL COMES ON AND HE SAYS , " PEOPLE WHO WATCH POKER ON TV ARE TOTAL LOSERS. " I SAID NOTHING UNTIL THE PIZZA HUT COMMERCIAL CAME ON.

 GOT DECEMBER CALENDARS OUT TO OUR PRINTING COMPANY.

 EMAILED BANDS AND FB POSTED ABOUT WEEKEND.

 MONDAY - ONE OF THE WORST NIGHTS OF " SLEEP " I CAN REMEMBER. I TRIED THIS NEW HERBAL PRODUCT CALLED " HIT THE HAY ". I WENT TO BED AT 11PM AND NEVER FELL ASLEEP UNTIL 6:15AM. HOLY SHIT WAS THIS BRUTAL. I FELL ASLEEP FROM 6:15AM TO 7:15AM AND THAN STARTED MY DAY.

 TUESDAY SLEEP - UP AT 5:15AM. IT IS NOW 7AM. I WILL TRY TO SLEEP AGAIN.

 THURSDAY MIGHT HIT 60 DEGREES. I HAVE AT LEAST 4 OUTDOOR PROJECTS I COULD DO. I RATHER BE EAST OR NORTH THOUGH.

 DROP OFF U.P.S PACKAGE FOR WHEELS. I FOUND A NEW VERY FRIENDLY STORE OFF HENDERSON ROAD.

 DROP OFF CAR TO GET INSPECTED. A CALL BACK 5 HOURS LATER AND I KNEW IT WASN'T GOOD. NEVER EVER EVER DOES THE MECHANIC SAYS , " HEY , YOUR CAR JUST NEEDED WINDEX IN THE WINDOW WASHER BIN. YOU'RE ALL DONE. THE BILL IS $29. NOPE.....NEW TIRES AND BRAKES. IT'S ALWAYS FUCKING NEW TIRES AND BRAKES. 

 THERE WAS MORE STUFF I JUST FORGET.

  WEDNESDAY    12 - 1 - 21

 AND DECEMBER COMES..............

 HOW MUCH EARLIER CAN I RESPOND ?  A WOMAN GIVING AWAY A BRAND NEW OVER THE TOILET SHELVING UNIT RESPONDS TO MY INQUIRY , " SORRY , IT WAS PICKED UP ALREADY. EARLY BIRD GETS THE WORM ! " I REPLY , " I CONTACTED YOU AT 4:13AM. THE BIRDS WEREN'T EVEN UP YET. "

 YEP , GUNS KEEP MAKING THE NEWS. WHAT A FUCKING SHAME AT THE MICHIGAN HIGH SCHOOL.  SEEING THE KIDS WHO DIED IS HEART CRUSHING. OH , THIS IS A PAIN I NEVER EVER WANT TO SEE. I JUST DON'T GET IT. IF KIDS ARE BEING KILLED WHY NOT JUST GET RID OF GUNS LIKE OTHER COUNTRIES ? GREAT BRITAIN HAS 1 DEATH A YEAR BY GUN. THE UNITED STATES HAS 1 DEATH EVERY 1 SECOND. OH , THE FATHER NEEDS TO BE ACCOUNTABLE TOO.

 THURSDAY GOING TO HIT 60 DEGREES. THIS MEANS OUT DOOR WORK.........UGH.

 THE BLOG OF MONDAY  11 - 29 - 21 HIT AN ALL TIME HIGH OF 4200 HITS IN A 24 HOUR CYCLE. I THANK YOU FOR BEING ENTERTAINED BY MY PAIN. EVERYDAY TRUE STORIES RIGHT HERE AT WWW.THENAIL1.COM ( CLICK HISTORY LINK )

   FACETIME WITH OUR YOUNGEST. THIS IS ALWAYS A JOY.  I TOLD HER NOT TO READ MY BLOG THIS WEEK FOR IT WAS RATED X. IT WAS CUTE AS I SEE HER COMPUTER'S GLOW AND I TELL HER AGAIN , " DO NOT READ THIS WEEK'S BLOG. " SHE SLOWLY WAVERED HER EYES AWAY............WHICH WAS ADORABLE. HER FACE READ , " I WANT TO LOOK BUT I WON'T...........FOR NOW. "

 WHEN YOU CAN MAKE SOMEONE CRY LAUGH WHEN THEY FIRST GET UP AT 3AM.....THAT'S GOOD WRITING OR A PAINFUL LIFE.  I GOT AN EMAIL FROM AN UNKNOWN PERSON AT 6AM SAYING , " DO YOU MAKE UP MOST OF YOUR STORIES ? " I REPLIED , " I DON'T USE MAKE-UP. "

  FLYERS AND 76ERS LOSE.......BLOW.

 ANOTHER 2 HOURS ON THE PHONE WITH SURVEILLANCE PEOPLE. WE DID GET SOME CAMERAS TO WORK. IT HAS BEEN BACK AND FORTH WITH VERIZON AND ZMODDO FOR 4 STRAIGHT DAYS NOW. I JUST KEEP SETTING UP CALL BACKS TO MAKE SURE THE JOB WAS COMPLETE.

 WHEELS WRAPS OVER A 100 CHRISTMAS GIFTS. MAZE HELPS BY EATING SOME.

 SENT OUT DECEMBER CALENDARS......AGAIN. GOT PRICING FOR 2022. THEY WENT UP.........NICE.

 GOT CAR INSPECTED AND PAID BILL. OVER $700........NICE. I ALMOST BOUGHT BOOTLEG INSPECTION STICKERS FOR $50 OFF FB MARKETPLACE. I AM THINKING I SHOULD OF. EVERY DAMN YEAR IT'S NEW TIRES AND BRAKES. I KNOW ZERO ABOUT CARS SO TRUST IS A BIG FACTOR. I SAY THIS EVERY YEAR AND EVERY YEAR WE CAN NOT FIND THE DAMN BILLS FORM THE PREVIOUS YEAR.  I AM WILLING TO BET FOR THE LAST 10 YEARS I HAD CHANGED OUR TIRES AND BRAKES EACH TIME.

 THE NAIL WEBSITE DUES BY DREAMHOST WENT UP......NICE.

 I HAVEN'T HAD A CHINESE DINNER IN A LONG TIME. WE ORDERED HO CHOI WHICH IS VERY GOOD.

 WATCHED THE FINALE OF COWBOY BEPOP. IT WAS GOOD. SOME THINGS WERE NOT BELIEVABLE AND ONE CHARACTER DID A 180 BUT OVERALL GOOD. THE SEASON WAS ENTERTAINING AND I HOPE THERE IS A SEASON 2.

 FINISHED EPISODE 1 OF 3 OF GET BACK. EACH EPISODE IS OVER 2 HOURS. WE WATCHED HALF AT A TIME. THIS BEATLES DOCUMENTARY IS SLOW MOVING BUT INTERESTING. IT REALLY SEEMS PAUL WAS THE TRUE GENIUS IN SONG WRITING. I THOUGHT YOKO ONO SITTING FOR HOURS AND HOURS JUST OBSERVING AND NOT SAYING ANYTHING WAS COMMENDABLE. WHEN SHE SANG.......UGH.

 OFF TO BED AND I TRY " HIT THE HAY " ALL NATURAL DROPLETS AGAIN. I SLEPT BETTER BUT HAVING OUR PUP IN THE BED DEFINITELY AFFECTS MY SLEEP. A KING SIZE BED AND I HAD 6 INCHES ALONG THE SIDE OF IT. THE ONLY THING NEW IS DRY MOUTH. IT SEEMED EVERY OTHER HOUR I NEEDED TO TAKE A SIP OF WATER. THIS HAS NOT HAPPENED BEFORE IN YEARS.

 AT MY COLLEGE DORM THERE ARE ROWS OF BEDS LINED UP IN BIG AUDITORIUM. I JUST HAPPEN TO GLANCE UNDER THE BEDS AND I CAN SEE A LONG WAY. I AM SHOCKED AND YELL OUT WHEN I SEE 2 SNAKES SLITHERING UNDERNEATH. MOST GIRLS SCREAM AND ONE GUY HELPS ME TRY TO CAPTURE THEM WITH 2 CLAMPING POLES WE HAVE.  THE 2 SNAKES I INDENTIFY AS COPPER HEAD RATTLE SNAKES. THIS IS NOT GOOD. WE ALSO SEE ONE LARGE YELLOW AND WHITE CONSTRICTOR SNAKE. I SAY TO HIM , " IT'S OKAY. THEY SHOULD NOT BITE AND NOT VENOMOUS. I AM NOT AFRAID OF IT FOR I AM PRETTY SURE IT IS AN ALBINO BURMESE PYTHON. " THE FRIEND TRUSTS ME AND LETS THE SNAKE'S HEAD  SLOWLY CROSS OVER HIS HAND....THAN HE GRABS IT.  WE ARE AGAINST A WALL BY A WINDOW AND THE SNAKE IS TOO STRONG AND FORCES ITSELF OUT OF HIS GRIP AND OUT THE OPEN WINDOW. THE PYTHON FALLS DOWN TO THE FIRST FLOOR. I SEE A GIRL COME OUT AND GRAB HIM..............dream ends.

  THURSDAY       12 - 2 - 21

 YOU WANT A LONG DAY AND NIGHT ?...........HERE WE GO. ( REMEMBER I GO ON 2 HOURS SLEEP AT MOST )

 START MORNING EARLY ( WHAT'S NEW ) WITH BAND UPDATING AND BLOG RESPONSES. A LITTLE OVER 20 PEOPLE WROTE ME ABOUT THIS WEEK'S BLOG. HERE ARE SOME RESPONSES THAT MADE ME FEEL GOOD.....WELL , APPRECIATED MAYBE ?

 1 - " CHRIS , YOU'RE HILARIOUS. I LITERALLY SPIT MY COFFEE OUT WHILE READING MONDAY'S STORY. I HAVE NEVER WRITTEN YOU BEFORE BUT I JUST HAD TO TODAY. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR HUMOR. "

 2 - " DUDE , I FUCKING LOVE YOU. I HAD A SIMILAR EXPERIENCE WITH A REP FROM A CAR DEALERSHIP. GOOD TO SEE I'M NOT ALONE. YOURS WAS WORST - LOL "

 3 - " I HAVE THINGS TO DO EACH MORNING LIKE THE REST OF THE WORLD. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS I READ YOUR BLOG EVERYDAY NOW. IT IS SO DAMN ADDICTING. "

 I START MY DAY WITH THE MIND SET I MUST WORK OUTSIDE BECAUSE IT IS 60 DEGREES IN DECEMBER. HERE IS HOW IT WENT :

 - PLACE 2 FULL TRASHCANS OF BOTTLE AND CAN RECYCLABLES OUT. WE TRULY HAVE A DRINKING PROBLEM.

 - ORGANIZE A SHIT LOAD OF SEA SHELLS ALONG OUR STREET BORDER.

 - DO SOME WEEDING.

 - GO ON ROOF TO CLEAN OUT RIDGES FILLED WITH PINE NEEDLES. MY ANKLE STILL HURTS AND I WAS NERVOUS BECAUSE I WAS ON SUCH AN ANGLE PUTTING PRESSURE ON MY BAD ANKLE. I SHOULD OF GOT MY OLD SNEAKERS THAT ARE ALREADY ANGLED LIKE WALKING ON A SIDE OF A HILL. THEY WOULD OF WORKED BETTER. WHEELS TIMES IT PERFECT TO " FOOT " THE LADDER SO FATBOY CAN GET DOWN. OH MY ELDEST SAYS , " WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU DOING ON THE ROOF ? ALLS I HEARD WAS STOMP , STOMP , STOMP. "

 - PICK UP PUP POOP AND DUMP IN A CORNER OF OUR YARD IN THE DEEP HEDGES. THREES TIMES I RETRIEVED MY SHOVEL AND BUCKET BECAUSE HER POOP HIDES LIKE THE WIND. OVERTIME I THINK I PICKED UP EVERYTHING I FIND ANOTHER PRESENT.

 - USING MY HEDGERS I CUT THE CRAP OUT OF ANY TREE OR BUSH OVER GROWING. THIS WAS THE HARDEST.

 - FROM THE BASEMENT I CARRIED UPSTAIRS 4 BINS OF CHRISTMAS LIGHTS. I F'N HATE DOING CHRISTMAS LIGHTS BY MYSELF. I SPENT AT LEAST 2 HOURS PLACING LIGHTS IN OUR FRONT GARDENS. I HAD 1,000 WHITE SNOW FLAKE LIGHTS THAT WERE COMPLETELY BIRD NESTED TOGETHER. IT WOULD OF TOOK ME TIL NEXT CHRISTMAS TO UNTANGLE THEM. SO , I CAME UP WITH A GAME PLAN........THROW THEM ON THE F'N GROUND AND MAKE IT LOOK LIKE SNOW. IT ACTUALLY CAME OUT NICE. I ALSO LIKE OUR OLD CHRISTMAS TREE WHICH IS NOW OUTSIDE. I TOOK SOME PICTURES AND SENT THEM TO OUR FAMILY GROUP TEXT AND POSTED ON FACEBOOK.

 - HAD THE PUP OUTSIDE WITH ME ON THIS BEAUTIFUL DAY. SHE GOT ENTANGLED WITH LIGHTS OR BINS ABOUT EVERY 5 MINUTES.

 - I'M ALLOWING MY KID'S FRIEND TO PARK HIS MOTORCYCLE IN MY GARAGE. I DID NOT KNOW HE ALSO CHARGES IS BATTERY 24/7. I GUESS I AM PAYING FOR THE ELECTRIC USAGE. ANYWAY , I RE-RAN HIS TRICKLE CHARGER AND WIRE.

 - DOWN THE BASEMENT I COLLAPSED A PATIO UMBRELLA THAT DID NOT WANT TO COLLAPSE. I WON BECAUSE FAT WINS OVER UMBRELLAS EVERY TIME.

 OK , IT IS NOW 3PM AND I AM TOTALLY EXHAUSTED. I TRY TO NAP BUT IT ISN'T HAPPENING.

 HAVE SOME RAISIN BRAN CEREAL. THE MILK IS BAD......BLOW.

 MY 5TH STRAIGHT DAY WITH VERIZON FIOS. THIS TIME THEY CAN NOT ACCESS MY COMPUTER LIKE THE PREVIOUS 4 DAYS. IT MADE NO SENSE. THE TECH SAID HE DID NOT HAVE THE AUTHORITY SO HE WALKED ME TROUGH IT. OH , WHEN BEING RE-ROUTED TO ANOTHER NUMBER I GOT HUNG UP ON. THE INDIAN TECH THAT I COULD NOT UNDERSTAND WALKED ME THROUGH THE PROCEDURES OF CHANGING IP ADDRESSES AND PORT FORWARDING. IN THREE HOURS WE GOT NOTHING DONE. ALL WASTED TIME......AGAIN. 

 OFF TO THE NAIL TO MEET A SUPER SOUND TECH. HE GETS OUR PA SYSTEM BACK UP TO SPEED AGAIN.

 MEET WITH A BAND WHO GIVES ME 2 CEILING MOUNTS FOR MICROPHONES. I LET HIM TAKE A TON OF STUFF FROM OUR BACK STORAGE ROOM.

 MUSICIANS START ROLLING IN. I HAD A GOOD TIME. I WAS TIRED BUT I DID GET A LOT DONE. OH , OUR SODAS ARE DOWN AGAIN. THE 2ND CO2 TANK IS EMPTY.....IN LESS THAN 3 DAYS. ONE TANK USUALLY LASTS 3 - 6 MONTHS.

 $700 DOLLARS TO INSPECT A CAR. MAN THAT JUST EATS AT ME.

 ELDEST STOPS IN. GEE , I WONDER FOR WHAT ? I NOW MAKE HER SIGN CASH TABS AND PLACE IN REGISTER. " WE " SEEM TO FORGET HOW MUCH I LEND HER.

 ROLL OUT AROUND MIDNIGHT AND STOP BY OUR LOCAL PUB TO VISIT MY KID AND HER FRIEND BARTENDING. I FELT IT WAS GOOD JUST TO BOND WITH MY ELDEST. I DO GET NERVOUS THAT THEY LET SO MANY UNDER 21 KIDS IN.

 AT HOME BY 12:45AM. I WALK THE PUP AND I FEEL LIKE MAKING A FIRE PIT. SO INSTEAD , I HAVE SOME CHEESE AND PRETZELS LIKE AN IDIOT.

 FRIDAY   12 - 3 - 21

 NOW THAT IS A LONG DAY.................BUT A GOOD ONE.

 OH , I FORGOT YESTERDAY I ALSO LEAF BLEW AND SWEPT OUR OUTDOOR STEPS TO KEEP A DRAIN OPEN. I LIKE THIS DECEMBER WEATHER.......SO FAR.

 WHEELS AND ELDEST GET A WONDERFUL TREAT FOR DINNER........" THE CLUB ".

 NUMEROUS THINGS TODAY BUT HUNG OUT.

 TAKE A RIDE TO RESTAURANT DEPOT. I MOVED QUICKLY BUT GOT A REGISTER GIRL STUCK ON ONE SALE. A 15 MINUTE WAIT.....OH WELL.

 OFF TO THE NAIL TO MEET OUR SODA TECH AGAIN AND UNLOAD PRODUCT. WE HAD 3 LEAKS ON OUR SODA CANS AND A 4TH LEAK THAT COULD NOT BE FIXED. HE DID A MACGYVER TO GET US THROUGH THE WEEKEND. AS OF TODAY THE PA SYSTEM , SODAS , AND DRAFT BEERS ARE WORKING.

 I DECIDE TO STAY AT THE NAIL AND WAIT FOR THE SOUNDMAN. HE BRINGS ENOUGH EQUIPMENT TO DO WELLS FARGO CENTER. WHILE HE SETS UP AND I DO 50 THINGS. I'M ALWAYS AMAZED THAT THERE IS ALWAYS THINGS TO DO.

 MISS MY CAMERA TECH PHONE CALL.

 THE BANDS ROLL IN VERY EARLY AND SO DO THE FANS OF MUSIC. WE GOT SLAMMED AND HAD TO CALL IN HELP AND MOVE ME FROM THE DOOR TO BEHIND THE BAR. THE HEADLINER AND SIGNED ACT FROM WEST VIRGINA CALLED SCATTERED HAMLET WERE SUPER COOL. IN FACT ALL THE BANDS WERE. THE NIGHT MOVED NICELY AND WE WERE RUNNIN' !!!!! ( SAY IT LIKE FOREST GUMP )

 I HAD SO MANY BAND MEMBERS AND PATRONS COME UP TO ME TO THANK US ON HOW WE RUN A SHOW AND OUR BARTENDERS. TONS OF PEOPLE TOOK PICTURES OUTSIDE WITH THE MARQUEE.

 76ERS WITH A REALLY REALLY NICE WIN OVER THE HAWKS WHO UPSET US IN THE PLAYOFFS LAST YEAR.

 THE BEST COMPLIMENT - A YOUNG COUPLE ARE JUST CHILLING. THE GIRL ( VERY CUTE BLONDE )  WALKS UP TO ME AND SAYS , " COMING TO THE NAIL HAS BEEN ON MY BUCKET LIST. I HAVE TO SAY THIS IS THE GREATEST VENUE FOR LIVE MUSIC AND I LOVE IT HERE !! YOUR BARTENDERS ARE DOING A FANTASTIC JOB AND THEY ARE LOVABLE !! " SHE WENT ON AT LEAST ANOTHER 5 MINUTES WITH COMPLIMENTS. LATER I TOLD MY BARTENDERS THEY ARE " LOVABLE ". ONE RESPONDS , " YEAH , WE ARE. "

 HEADLINER BAND MEMBER - ( THEY WERE IN OHIO LAST NIGHT AND PITTSBURGH TOMORROW ) " I HAVE TO TELL YOU THE SOUND LAST NIGHT IN OHIO THE GUY SEEMED HIGH OR ON SOMETHING. TONIGHT WAS OVER THE TOP FANTASTIC. I ALSO MUST SAY YOUR BARTENDERS WERE PHENOMENAL.  I TOLD THEM BUT I WANTED TO MAKE SURE I TOLD YOU TOO. I EVEN GAVE THEM SOME EXTRA CASH. " I REPLIED , " YEAH I THINK IT STARTS AT THE TOP ON WHO TAUGHT THEM ". HE LAUGHS , " YOUR RIGHT !  I'M A BARTENDER BACK HOME SO I KNOW HOW IT IS. "

 THE BAND ASKED ME IF I LIKE A SHIRT. I TOLD THEM TO HOOK UP THE BARTENDERS. THE GIRLS LOVED THEIR SCATTERED HAMLET CUSTOM SHIRTS. 

 A NICE YOUNG COUPLE COME IN A SIT AT THE BAR. THE GUY SAYS , " DO YOU SERVE FOOD HERE ? WE'VE HAVEN'T HAD DINNER. " I GRAB A TABLE TENT MENU AND SAY TO HIM , " YES , WE DO. TONIGHT , I RECOMMEND THE FILET MIGNON OR BABY BACK RIBS. " I WAIT ABOUT 5 SECONDS AS HE READS THE TABLE TOP MENU AND THAN I BLURT OUT , " NAAAAH !! WE DON'T HAVE THAT !! , JUST BAR FOOD LIKE WINGS AND STUFF. " HE AND HIS GIRL FRIEND ROAR LAUGH.

 OF COURSE THERE IS ALWAYS ONE NUDGE. EVER HAVE A GUY BE SO THEATRICAL , SO ANNOYING , SO OBNOXIOUS , AND USE OTHER PEOPLE'S MONEY TO ORDER ? WELP.....WE HAD ONE TONIGHT.  HE KEPT " FUN " HITTING HIS FRIEND WHO WAS AN ATTORNEY. I MEAN KICKING , SLAPPING , HUGGING , PUNCHING........IT WAS AT THE POINT I WAS GOING TO ASK THE FRIEND TO JUST MOVE AWAY FROM HIM. THERE WERE 7 OF THEM TOTAL.

 MORE  NUDGE GUY - HE ORDERS DRINKS AND SHOTS FOR HIS 6 FRIENDS AND HAS THE ATTORNEY FRIEND PAY FOR IT. OUR BARTENDER SAYS , " CASH OR CHARGE ? " HE RESPONDS , " OH , YOU HAVE MY CREDIT CARD BEHIND THE BAR. " THE BARTENDER REPLIES , " NO I DON'T. " THE GUY SPINS ON HIS BARSTOOL AND PRETENDS TO REACH IN HIS POCKET TO GET HIS WALLET BUT NEVER DOES. I AM WATCHING ALL OF THIS. HE THAN ASKS HIS ATTORNEY FRIEND TO PAY FOR THE DRINKS. THE ATTORNEY WHIPS OUT A WAD OF 20 DOLLAR BILLS AND THROWS 4 OF THEM ON THE BAR TO PAY. THE NUDGE GUY SAYS , " WHERE'S THE HUNDRED DOLLAR BILLS ? " THE ATTORNEY FRIEND ( WHO KEEPS GETTING HIT ) RESPONDS , " I'M NOT THAT RICH. " THE DICKHEAD LOOKED LIKE A BULLY WHEN HE WAS YOUNG. THE ATTORNEY GUY LOOKED LIKE A GEEK IN HIS DAY ( STILL DID KINDA ). I GUESS SOME THINGS NEVER CHANGE.

 I'M WATCHING THIS THE WHOLE TIME AND JUST TRYING TO BUY TIME UNTIL THE NUDGE LEAVES. HE TRIED TO SHAKE THE BARTENDERS HAND BUT SHE WITHDREW. I WENT BEHIND THE BAR AND I DID THE SAME THING. NEITHER OF US WANTED TO DEAL WITH HIM. HE MADE A SPECTACLE OF HIMSELF WITH ALL HIS FRIENDS LIKE HE WAS THE LIFE OF THE PARTY. LITTLE DID HE KNOW HE LOOKED LIKE AN IDIOT. LATER , I ASKED HIM TO DRINK ONE GLASS OF WATER OR LEAVE FOR AN HOUR........HE LEFT. I CALL THAT A WIN - WIN WITH EITHER DECISION.

 THIS WAS A FANTASTIC NIGHT WITH SO MANY COMPLIMENTS. IT WAS SO NICE TO SEE AND HEAR.

 WE GET EVERYTHING DONE TO CLOSE AND I JUST TELL THE SOUNDMAN TO LOCK UP. AFTER 1 HOUR HE STILL HAD ANOTHER 45 MINUTES TO PACK UP. WE ROLLED OUT.

 AT THE LAST MINUTE WE DECIDE NOT TO DRIVE TO CENTER CITY BUT JUST HEAD HOME. THE 2 BARTENDERS AND MYSELF HAVE A FIRE PIT WITH MUSIC. IT WAS WONDERFUL. OUR ELDEST JOINED LATER.
