     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      2 - 7 - 21

 TOM BRADY AND THE SUPER BOWL. THESE TWO NAMES WILL BE FOREVER CONNECTED. I DID NOT CARE WHO WON BUT BRADY WINNING 7 BOWLS IS PRETTY IMPRESSIVE LIKE HIM OR NOT.  MY PERCENTAGES WERE 50.5% CHIEFS TO 49.5% BUCCANEERS. I WOULD OF LIKE TO SEE A GOOD GAME BUT THE BUCS DEFENSE AND BRADY'S EXPERIENCE ROSE A LEVEL......OR THREE.

  SUPER BOWL COMMERCIALS WERE $5 MILLION DOLLARS FOR 30 SECONDS. NOT MANY I THOUGHT WERE ENTERTAINING OR MEMORABLE FOR THEIR PRODUCT. I FOUND THE PARAMOUNT CHANNEL " TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN " WAS GOOD TO CLEVER ONLY BECAUSE OF SO MANY CELEBRITIES , WILL FERRELL WAS SILLY BUT OKAY , AND THE LAST ONE THAT GOT ME WAS THE PARAPLEGIC HANDICAP OLYMPIC SWIMMER.......THAT WAS EXCELLENT. YEP , I SHED A TEAR. I THINK IT WAS A CAR COMMERCIAL THOUGH.....TOYOTA MAYBE ?

 KINDA FELT BAD WHEN I JUMPED ON A FACEBOOK POST BY SOMEONE ELSE ABOUT A POCONO RENTAL. I COMMENTED OUR PROPERTY. MOST TIMES WE SHARE AND CROSS PROMOTE BUT THIS LADY WANTED NO PART OF IT. I REMOVED MY COMMENTS FROM HERS AND APOLOGIZED FOR THE MISUNDERSTANDING. MANY TIMES THESE GROUP POSTS WE ALL SHARE TOGETHER.....NOT HER AND I COULD SEE HER POINT. MY VIEW IS WHY HAVE 1 POST WITH 50 PEOPLE WHERE YOU COULD HAVE 2 POSTS WITH A 100 PEOPLE ?

 SO I POSTED ONE MYSELF. WITHIN MINUTES I WAS TEXTING A TON OF PEOPLE FOR THE NEXT 4 HOURS. OVER 50 LIKES , 8 SHARES , AND SEVERAL PEOPLE GAVE US HUGE PRAISE WHEN THEY RECOGNIZED MY PICTURES OF THE MOUNTAIN HOUSE. THE UNFORTUNATE THING MOST PEOPLE THOUGHT OUR 1200 DOLLAR LAKEFRONT MOUNTAIN HOUSE WAS A LONG TERM RENTAL AND THAT WAS THE MONTHLY PRICE....WHERE IT WAS A WEEKLY PRICE.

  SNOW CAME DOWN HARD AND BIG FLAKES BUT REALLY ONLY ACCUMULATED ABOUT 4-5 INCHES AT MOST. I USED MY SNOW BLOWER AND THE ENGINE RAN GOOD BUT I AM STILL HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THE GEARS MOVING THE WHEELS. I THINK I GAVE MY " NEW " SNOW BLOWER TO MY PARENTS TOO SOON.

 I HAD ROCKY ROAD ICE-CREAM WITH PEANUTS AND CARMEL SYRUP .......TOO MUCH ACTUALLY. SO TO COUNTERBALANCE IT I HAD NO DINNER OR NO BOOZE DURING THE SUPER BOWL. MAN THAT WAS TOUGH. WEIGHT LOSS UPDATE --- MINUS .8 POUNDS ( AGAIN ).

 STARTED SPACKLING A BROKEN SEAM IN OUR BATHROOM CEILING. I DO NOT WHY I STARTED THIS PROJECT BUT IT WAS BOTHERING ME.

 FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE IS VERY CLOSE. IT LOOKS GOOD WE WILL GET SOMETHING VERY NEEDED TOMORROW. WELL ACTUALLY , I HOPE IT WILL BE VERY NEEDED.

 WATCHED SOME MORE MONEY HEIST. THE THEME OF THE SHOW IN SEASON 3 CIRCLED RIGHT BACK AROUND TO THE SAME AS SEASON 1. I WAS OKAY WITH THIS BUT HOPED FOR A BETTER SCENARIO. I HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF A TOUGH TIME BELIEVING CHARACTERS CHANGING VIEWS AND POSITIONS.

 ELDEST HELPS ME SHOVEL AND BROOM SWEEP ALL VEHICLES HERE.

 WHEELS DECIDES TO STAY IN NEW JERSEY WITH THE GIRLS ANOTHER DAY BECAUSE THE WEATHER DID TURN BAD. SNOW WAS COMING DOWN PRETTY GOOD HERE. THE COOL THING IT WAS THE HEAVY WET SNOW THAT STICKS TO TREES AND BRANCHES.

 OH THEY STOPPED AT OUR CONDO AND OUR FRONT SCREEN DOOR FELL OFF.......NICE.

 PLAYED WITH THE PUPPY AND IT WAS FUN. LATER MY ELDEST LET HER OUT OFF-LEASH AND I HEAR A HIGH PITCHED COMMAND OF " COME BACK HERE !! ". YEP , THE PUP WENT DOWN THE DRIVEWAY AND UP THE STREET 3 HOUSES. THIS IS VERY CONCERNING SO I RAN OUTSIDE. I CALLED HER AND SHE CAME BACK ONLY TO STOP WHEN 2 PEOPLE CARRYING A PUPPY WALKED UP BEHIND ME. OF COURSE OUR PUP HAD TO INVESTIGATE THEIR PUP. I TOLD THE NICE 2 WOMEN ( WHO LOVED MAZE ) , " SHE IS HARMLESS , JUST A PUPPY , AND STAY STILL FOR JUST A SECOND. "

 I SNUCK UP WHILE MAZE WAS TOTALLY PER-OCCUPIED WITH THEIR PUPPY IN THE LADY'S ARM. IN SECONDS I SWEPT OUR DOG UP AND HELD HER IN MY ARMS.

 NEXT  WE JUST CHILL INSIDE. MY KID GOES DOWN THE BASEMENT WITH A TON OF FOOD WHILE I STAY UPSTAIRS AND SIP A WATER BOTTLE AND WATCH THE SUPER BOWL. I ALSO WATCH ED THE FLYERS STORM BACK AND WIN 7 - 4 OVER THE CAPITALS. IT WAS A GOOD AND NEEDED BOUNCE-BACK WIN.

  THE PUPPY DOES CRACK US UP. SHE DIDN'T KNOW WHETHER TO GO DOWN THE BASEMENT FOR FOOD OR STAY UPSTAIRS WITH ME AND GO OUTSIDE.

  AT 11PM I HEAD TO MY BEDROOM TO WIND DOWN AND END THE NIGHT. 15 MINUTES LATER MY ELDEST ASKED IF SHE CAN HAVE A FRIEND OVER TO SHOOT POOL. SHE HAS A JOB INTERVIEW TOMORROW IN CENTER CITY AND I SAID NO BECAUSE I DIDN'T WANT HER UP UNTIL 5 AM. SHE DID NOT AGREE WITH THAT DECISION. OH.......I CLEANED UP THE BASEMENT OF TRASH AND BOTTLES FROM THE FRIENDS BEING OVER LAST NIGHT.

 OFF TO BED. AGAIN , NOT SLEEPING THE BEST.

  MONDAY     2 - 8 - 21

  OH MAN DID I DESTROY MY DIET WITH A CHEAT DAY......DAMN IT. BUT......I DID HAVE FUN.

  MY ELDEST AND I GET ON THE ROAD TO CENTER CITY. SHE HAS A JOB INTERVIEW WITH AMAZON. IT WAS FUN TRAVELING , LISTENING TO MUSIC , AND THAN STOPPING TO VISIT OUR YOUNGEST AT COLLEGE. I ADORED EVERY SECOND.

 WHILE ELDEST DID INTERVIEW ME AND THE YOUNGEST VISITED SOME FAMILY IN PHILLY. TO SAY THEY WERE ELATED BY OUR VISIT WAS AN UNDERSTATEMENT. YOU THINK IT WAS CHRISTMAS MORNING TO THEM. I WAS GLAD WE STOPPED BY.

 PICK UP ELDEST AFTER INTERVIEW AND THEY GET WAWA.

 DROP OFF YOUNGEST FOR SHE HAD TO GO TO CLASS. NOW , ME AND MY OLDER KID HAD A GAME PLAN TO STICK TOO.....BUT WE NEEDED TO BURN SOME TIME.

 WE STOP AT LONGHORN STEAK HOUSE FOR A LATE LUNCH. THE PLACE IS HUGE AND HAS TO HOLD 1,500 PEOPLE. I SEE ONE ELDERLY COUPLE IN A FAR BOOTH AND THEY REST OF THE PLACE IS EMPTY. I TELL THE GREETER , " COULD WE HAVE A BOOTH FOR 2 ? " SHE RESPONDS , " THERE IS A 45 MINUTE WAIT. WOULD YOU LIKE TO PLACE YOUR NAME DOWN ? " I SUPER SUPER SLOWLY SCAN THE PLACE BY VERY VERY SLOWLY MOVING MY EYES & HEAD FROM ONE SIDE OF THE BUILDING ALL THE WAY TO THE OTHER SIDE. THIS WAS KINDA RUBBING IT IN A BIT. I MEAN THERE IS NO ONE HERE. THE PLACE IS HUGE. I RESPOND , "NO THANK YOU I SEE YOU'RE BUSY. " WE TELL 3 OTHER COUPLES AND FAMILY OUTSIDE. I ACTUALLY THOUGHT THE GREETER WAS JOKING.

 WE STOP AT CHILI'S FOR A NICE DEAL...THOUGH OF COURSE WE ADDED TO THIS 3 FOR $10 SPECIAL. IT IS A DRINK ( BOOZE INCLUDED ) , APPETIZER , AND ENTREE FOR $10...FOR THE MOST PART. I THOUGHT OUR WAITRESS WAS ADORABLE AND FUN AND I ATE WAY WAY TOO MUCH.......INCLUDING DESERTS AND FOOD. DAMN IT !!!

 OH MY GOD TOO MUCH FOOD. I FELT SO FAT AND ASHAMED I ATE TOO MUCH.  WE STOP TARGET TO GET MY KID SNEAKERS AND I WALK THE TARGET OF SHAME ISLES.

 TODAY' LOSS OF WEIGHT --- MINUS 1.4 POUNDS ( REMEMBER I AM A DAY BEHIND ON THIS BLOG SO TOMORROW WILL NOT BE A GOOD WEIGH-IN UNLESS I EAT ICE CHIPS ALL TUESDAY )

 WE NOW MUST WASTE ANOTHER 30 MINUTES SO WE SIT IN THE CAR AT TARGET'S PARKING LOT AND LISTEN TO MUSIC AND CHILL. WE ARE MEETING SOMEONE AT 4:45PM.

 FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE STRIKES AGAIN. OUR CHEAPIE NAIL REGISTER IS ON ITS LAST LEGS. I FOUND THIS NICE WOMAN SELLING HER 2 YEAR OLD $500 REGISTER FOR $260. SHE TOLD ME IT HAS BEEN ON THE MARKET FOR 19 WEEKS AND JUST WON'T SELL. SHE SAID I COULD HAVE IT FOR $100.  MY DAUGHTER CONTACTS HER AND ASKS WOULD SHE DONATE IT TO OUR GOFUNDME PAGE AT THE NAIL ? THE YOUNG WOMAN RESPONDS , " OH MY GOD THE NAIL !!!!! OH MY GOD !!!! I WILL ABSOLUTELY DONATE IT !!!! "

 WE STOP AT HER HOUSE AND SHE IS SUPER COOL. MY DAUGHTER DOES MOST OF THE TALKING AND THE GIRL IS FROM OHIO. HER HUSBAND IS A HUGE FAN OF THE NAIL. WE TALK FOR ABOUT 15 MINUTES AND SHE IS OVER THE TOP SUPER NICE. WE WILL GET HER A " SAVE THE NAIL " TEE SHIRTS FOR HER AND HER KIDS. THIS IS A REALLY NICE REGISTER FOR FREE. MY ONLY CONCERN.....I HOPE WE GET TO USE IT SOMEDAY.

 BACK HOME WE BRING A STEAK DINNER TO WHEELS. SHE TRAVELED HOME FROM NEW JERSEY AFTER HER GIRLS WEEKEND.

 WE ALL CHILL AND I CHECK THE INTERNET , MESSAGES , EMAILS , AND MORE.

 MY FACEBOOK COMMUNITY POST OF OUR MOUNTAIN HOUSE RENTAL HAS BEEN ALMOST NON-STOP ON MY CELL PHONE MESSAGING. THE DOWNFALL AGAIN....MOST PEOPLE THINK IT IS A LONG TERM RENTAL EVEN THOUGH THE FIRST 5 WORDS ARE " LAKEFRONT VACATION HOME IN POCONOS ".

 I HAVE 2 ICED COFFEES WITH BAILEYS AND A JAMESON/COKE ZERO. I AM ASHAMED OF BEING FAT BUT FIGURED IF I WAS GOING TO DO  A " CHEAT " I MILES GO FULL " FRANK THE TANK " VERSION.

  FOUND OUT " BILLY " , THE DAD , ON DISCOVERY CHANNEL'S ALASKAN BUSH PEOPLE DIED.......DAMN IT.

 WE WATCH AND FINISH DISENCHANTMENT. IT WAS GOOD.

 I AM NOT A FAN OF GAME SHOWS BUT ONCE I START WATCHING I ALWAYS GET INTO THEM. WE WATCHED THE WALL ( BEAUTIFUL STORY OF CONTESTANTS ) AND THE WEAKEST LINK ( WHICH IS KINDA MEAN ).

 OFF TO BED AND TOTALLY PISSED I F'ED WITH MY DIET. I WAS ON PACE TO LOSE 10 POUNDS IN 7 DAYS BUT I EASILY PUT 5 POUNDS BACK ON TODAY. WE WILL SEE AT WEIGH-IN TOMORROW.

 WIND DOWN THE NIGHT IN MY BEDROOM. I PLAYED 2 POKER GAMES. I WON ONE ( 100K ) AND CAME IN 2ND IN THE OTHER ( 10K ). I WATCH A LITTLE OF RIDICULOUSNESS WHICH BASICALLY RUNS 24/7 ALONG WITH FAMILY GUY AND TWO & A HALF MEN.

  TUESDAY      2 - 9 - 21

 " KILL THEM WITH KINDNESS ".......AND A PERSON WILL STILL BE AN ASSHOLE.

 DIET FRONT - THOUGH IT WAS FUN - DUE TO MY EXCESSIVE EATING AND DRINKING YESTERDAY I GAINED 2.2 POUNDS......BLOW.

 TODAY I CONTINUED TO CONTACT PEOPLE ABOUT OUR VACATION PROPERTY POST ON FACEBOOK. MY CELL PHONE MESSAGING APP WAS GOING OFF LITERALLY EVERY 15 MINUTES. IT REALLY IS A GOOD WAY TO GET THE WORD OUT AND HOPEFULLY SOME PEOPLE WILL ENJOY OUR VACATION PROPERTIES.

 FOR THE FIRST TIME IN ALMOST A YEAR I PLACED A BEER AND LIQUOR ORDER FOR THE NAIL. IT WAS SMALL BUT IT WAS NICE TO DO. I ACTUALLY DID NOT KNOW WHERE MY RUSTY NAIL CHECK BOOK WAS.

 TWO PRINTERS AND NEITHER WORK. I SPENT OVER 2 HOURS TRYING TO FIX BOTH. FINALLY , I TOOK A RIDE TO STAPLES WHICH I HATE PAYING THEIR SUPER HIGH PRICES. ONE INK CARTRIDGE WAS $40. IF I WENT ONLINE I COULD BUY A REMAKE CARTRIDGE FOR $9. THE EMPLOYEE WAS VERY HELPFUL THOUGH.

 BACK HOME I PRINT OUT TAX DOCUMENTS NEEDED FOR OUR SOON VISIT TO THE ACCOUNTANT.

 CONTINUED SPACKLING , SANDING , AND WET SPONGING A BATHROOM CEILING. IT LOOKS BETTER.

 OUR ELDEST HAS A FRIEND ( AND A NAIL BARTENDER ) STOP BY. IT WAS HER BIRTHDAY. WE TALKED TO HER FOR OVER 30 MINUTES. I REALLY LIKE THIS KID.

 PLAYING WITH THE PUP. SHE IS REALLY FILLING IN THE HUGE VOID OF LOSING " OH NELLIE ".....WHO WAS AN AWESOME DOG AND FAMILY MEMBER. MAZE IS A SWEET HEART AND PRETTY DAMN COOL.

 CONSOLIDATED 10 SCRIBBLE NOTES OF PROJECTS INTO ONE.

 SCHEDULED AN APPOINTMENT FOR SAFELITE TO VISIT US AGAIN FOR ANOTHER CRACKED WINDSHIELD ON OUR VAN. THIS WILL BE 3 TIMES IN UNDER A YEAR. THE FIRST 2 TIMES WE DID GET HIT BY FLYING ROCKS WHILE DRIVING. THIS ONE IS DIFFERENT. I AM HOPING THIS TIME IT WILL BE UNDER WARRANTY. AND BY " HOPING " I MEAN WE WILL PAY THE DEDUCTIBLE AGAIN.........BLOW.

 I TALK WITH THE MOST IGNORANT ANNOYING ANGRY NEW JERSEY EASY PASS EMPLOYEE TODAY. I USED KINDNESS THE WHOLE TIME. SHE WAS SARCASTIC. EVERY THING I SAID WAS WRONG. EVERYTHING SHE SAID BLAMED THE CUSTOMER. I HATE PEOPLE WHO PUSH ANSWERS TO OTHERS. TO ME , SOLVE THE DAMN PROBLEM !!  I ASKED FOR A SUPERVISOR AND OF COURSE DURING THE TRANSFER I WAS HUNG UP ON. ANOTHER 40 MINUTE WAIT FOR A LIVE PERSON. BUT , THE 2ND REP SOLVED OUR TOLL CHARGE IN 11 SECONDS BY SAYING , " OH , THIS CASE WAS RESOLVED. YOU SENT IN 3 LETTERS AND EMAILS. WE CHARGED ONLY THE TOLL AND REMOVED THE FINE. "

 I WAS FEELING SO LESS FAT 3 DAYS AGO. DAMN THAT " CHEAT " DAY !! ( AGAIN IT WAS FUN ).

 LOOKS LIKE THURSDAY'S SNOW STORM IS GOING TO MISS US.......NICE.

 SETTLE IN WITH A SALAD DINNER......NICE.......AND BY NICE I MEAN BLOW. I CONTINUE TO AVOID BEER AND BRANDY. WINE AND JAMESON/COKE ZERO WILL BE CONSUMED ON OCCASION. I REALLY PREFER TO CUT OUT ALL BOOZE DURING THIS HEALTH SPREE....BUT THAT BE JUST SILLY AND ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE.

 WATCH SOME EPISODES OF MONEY HEIST. THE SHOW IS REALLY GOING DOWN HILL WITH SILLY DIALOGUE AND REPETITIVE STORY LINE BUT THE ENDING OF EVERY EPISODE IS STILL EXCELLENT.

 WE WATCH ANOTHER GAME SHOW CALLED TO TELL THE TRUTH. I DID LIKE IT AND THE ONLY REASON IT WAS BETTER WAS BECAUSE " MOM " WAS NOT ON IT. SHE IS SO ANNOYING. I FEEL LIKE THE SON , WHO IS THE HOST , MADE A MAJOR NAME FOR HIMSELF. WHY IS THE MOM RIDING HIS FAME AND COAT TAILS ?

 OFF TO BED. THE PUP TAKES OVER MY SIDE WHILE I AM WINDING DOWN ON MY COMPUTER. IT'S FUNNY , I FEEL BAD MOVING A DOG OFF MY PILLOW.

 WEDNESDAY    2 - 10 - 21

 FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE JUST KEEPS GIVING......

 ANOTHER SNOW STORM ON THE WAY. THE ONLY GOOD THING.....IT AFFECTS THE NAIL ZERO.

 FACETIME WEDNESDAY !!  - EACH WEDNESDAY WE CAN FACETIME OUR YOUNGEST AT COLLEGE AT ANYTIME. THE TECHNOLOGY IS JUST SO DAMN COOL. WE TALKED FOR ABOUT 90 MINUTES AND THAN LATER AGAIN AT NIGHT. THE FUNNY THING IS I ALWAYS ASK MY " COLLEGE " KID , " LET ME SEE WHAT'S IN YOUR REFRIGERATOR ? " SHE IS SO ADORABLE BECAUSE EACH TIME SHE SHOWS ME WHAT IS IN THE FRIDGE AND DESCRIBES IT.

 FINISH UP SPACKLING A BATHROOM CEILING. I AM DOWN TO WET SPONGING.

 ANOTHER VISIT FOR OUR ELDEST FRIEND / BARTENDER. SHE IS SO ADORABLE AND WE ARE TRYING TO HELP HER OUT WITH AN INTERNSHIP AT A LOCAL NURSING HOME. SHE IS MAJORING IN PHYSICAL THERAPY.

 MEET AT THE NAIL FOR A SMALL BEER DELIVERY. I ASKED FOR A 30 TO 60 MINUTE HEADS UP TEXT. I DID NOT GET ONE. ALL GOOD THOUGH.

 I DO SOME STUFF LIKE CHANGE THE MARQUEE AND CLEAN A LITTLE BUT MY MAJOR THING I WANTED TO SEE WAS OUR " NEW " REGISTER FROM FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE. HERE IS HOW IS WENT :

 - I REMOVE THE OLD REGISTER. I NOTICE IT IS SMALLER THAN THIS NEW ONE. IT IS FUNNY BECAUSE MY ELDEST SAID TO ME WHEN WE GOT IT , " THIS IS DEFINITELY BIGGER. WILL IT FIT ? "

 - WELL , IT WAS LESS THAN A 1/4 INCH TOO BIG FOR THE SPACE THE REGISTER GOES IN. I USE A LARGE ADJUSTABLE WRENCH AND FLAT SCREW DRIVER TO PRY OFF A PIECE OF DECO WOOD TRIM. USING MY BELLY I FORCE SLIDE THE MACHINE INTO PLACE. YOU CAN'T GET MUCH TIGHTER.

 - THE DRAWER IS LOCKED AND GUESS WHERE THE KEY IS ?.....IN THE DRAWER. THE SUPER NICE WOMEN WHO GAVE US THE REGISTER SAID , " YOU JUST NEED TO PRY IT OPEN WITH A KNIFE OR SOMETHING. " NOPE.........THAT WILL NOT WORK.

 - USING A FLASHLIGHT I SEE THE SWING BAR OF THE LOCK IN THE DOWN POSITION PREVENTING THE DRAWER TO SLIDE OPEN. I EVEN GOOGLE THE PRODUCT AND THE VIDEO SAYS THE KEY HOLE MUST BE IN THE VERTICAL POSITION. GEE , GUESS WHAT THE KEY WAS POSITIONED TOO ?......HORIZONTAL.

 - USING A LARGE ADJUSTABLE WRENCH ( COULDN'T FIND A HAMMER ) AND FLAT SCREW DRIVER AGAIN AND CAREFULLY HIT/BEND BACK THE LOCKING ARM SO THE DRAWER WOULD OPEN. I SPENT ABOUT 10 MINUTES AND I GOT IT TO WORK.

 - THE DRAWER OPENS AND THERE IS THE KEY. USING A PLIERS I BEND BACK EVERYTHING I SLIGHTLY DAMAGED AND USE THE KEY TO PUT THE LOCK IN HORIZONTAL POSITION. THIS REGISTER IS SUPER NICE AND 10X BETTER THAN THE CRAPPY ONE WE HAVE. 

 - THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I GOT SOMETHING OFF FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE FOR FREE BUT I ACTUALLY GAINED A PROFIT. IN THE DRAWER WAS ABOUT $4 IN CHANGE AND A 2 DOLLAR BILL. SO IN ESSENCE I GOT A REALLY NICE FREE REGISTER AND MADE 6 BUCKS.

 - I TINKER AROUND WITH IT FOR JUST A LITTLE BIT. MAN , I HOPE SOME DAY THIS THING WILL BE RINGING ALOT.

 I MAKE SOME PHONE CALLS , CHECK OUR ICE MACHINE THAT MADE ICE !! , AND GET ON THE ROAD.

 I STOP AT THE LIQUOR STORE TO PICK UP A SMALL ORDER OF BOOZE. I TALK TO A NICE REP I KNOW. AGAIN , THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I ORDERED BOOZE AND BEER IN ALMOST A YEAR. IT SADDENS ME TO WRITE THAT.

 AT HOME I SETTLE IN WITH A SALMON SALAD , SOME CHEESE , AND A COUPLE OF THIN PRETZELS. I WANTED BEER AND BRANDY SO BAD BUT I STAYED OFF. I AM STILL PISSED I ATE AND DRANK LIKE 10 MEN IF NOT 1 THREE DAYS AGO. TODAY'S UPDATE WEIGHT - GAINED 1 POUND. ONE FRIGGIN' 24 HOUR BINGE AND IT COST 2 DAYS OF WEIGHT GAIN......BLOW.

 WHEELS AND I FINISH SEASON 2 OF FARGO. OVERALL THE SECOND SEASON WAS VERY GOOD. THE ENDING I WAS SO-SO ON. IT TOOK ME 10 EPISODES AND WHEELS TO SAY SOMETHING ABOUT HOW SEASON 1 & 2 ARE DIRECTLY CONNECTED. I NEVER REALIZED IT.

 OFF TO BED. THE PUP CAME IN BUT THAN LEFT BECAUSE OUR ELDEST HAD FRIENDS OVER AGAIN.

 I SLEPT GOOD AND BAD. WAKING UP 3 TIMES JUST DOWN RIGHT BLOWS.

  THURSDAY     2 - 11 - 21

   I ACTUALLY CONTACTED A SNOW PLOW MECHANIC TO GET SUGGESTIONS ON OUR PLOW LOCKING WHEELS AND PRICING.

 SHOVELED SNOW BUT DID NOT USE MY SNOW PLOW. THANKFULLY IT WAS MUCH LESS THAN THE WEATHER SERVICE PREDICTED.

 STOPPED TO DELIVER SOME MAIL AFTER PRINTING OUT A LEASE.  SO FAR WE IN LESS THAN ONE WEEK I HAVE CONFIRMED 5 RENTALS WITH JUST ONE FACEBOOK AD. THIS IS A GOOD THING.

 OFF TO THE NAIL TO MEET A RENTER. SHE IS ADORABLE AND WITH HER BOYFRIEND. IT ENDS UP THE BOYFRIEND IS THE SON OF A LONGTIME FAMILY WE KNOW FROM HAVERTOWN. HIS MOM AND MY MOM ARE BEST FRIENDS. MAN DID I FEEL OLD.

 I PUTZED AROUND CLEANING AGAIN AND STOCKED THE LIQUOR ORDER. I MESSED AROUND WITH THE " NEW " REGISTER AGAIN. MAN......WHAT A DIFFERENCE. I ALSO SHOVELED SNOW A BIT.

 BACK HOME I CHILL AND CONTINUE TO CONTACT PERSPECTIVE RENTERS.

 SNUGGLE ON MY BED WITH THE PUP INTERTWINED WITH ME.,....TOO FUNNY. I WATCHED AN EPISODE OF MONEY HEIST. IT WAS OKAY TO GOOD.

 MY DINNER WAS A PLAIN BURGER ( ACTUALLY PRETTY GOOD ) AND 2 SLICES OF MEATLOAF WHEELS MADE ( VERY GOOD )

 WEIGHT FRONT - LOST .2 OF 1 POUND. ANNNNNNND BLOW.

 I HAVE A NEW JERSEY POKERSTARS ACCOUNT. I THINK I AM GOING TO TRY PLAYING FOR REAL MONEY. THEY OFFER MATCHING ANY DEPOSIT UP TO $600. I WON'T GO THAT HIGH AND PROBABLY START ON TINY TABLES LIKE FOR PENNIES. WE WILL SEE. IT SUCKS BECAUSE TONIGHT I PLAYED A 500K PLAY MONEY GAME AND WON 2.1 MILLION. MAN , WOULD THAT BE COOL IF IT WAS REAL MONEY.

 PREPPING FOR TAXES.....ALWAYS FUN.

 I USE MY COMPUTER AND CONNECTED IT TO OUR MAIN TV. WE HAVE SHOWTIME FOR FREE FOR 30 DAYS. WE WATCHED AN EPISODE OF YOUR HONOR.....VERY GOOD.  THE SET-UP IS A LITTLE BIT OF A HASSLE BUT NOT TOO BAD. IT SEEMS LIKE A NEW SHAMELESS HAS NOT BEEN AIRED IN WEEKS.

 WE WATCH SEASON 3 OPENER OF FARGO. AGAIN......PRETTY GOOD.

  WATCHED THE 76ERS WITH ABOUT 1 MINUTE LEFT IN THE GAME. THEY WERE UP 1 POINT. I WAS TOO TIRED AND WENT TO SLEEP. I KNEW THEY LOSE......AND THEY DID. BLOW.

 FLYERS PLAYERS DEVELOPED COVID. LOOKS LIKE THEY WON'T BE PLAYING FOR A COUPLE OF WEEKS.

 OFF TO BED. THE PUP JOINS ME AROUND 5AM. AS WE SLEPT EVERY TIME I MOVE SHE WOULD MOVE CLOSER TO ME. IT WAS ENTERTAINING.

 FRIDAY      2 - 12 - 21

 LITTLE CHEAT DAY. WEIGHT LOSS UPDATE - MINUS .2

 TRIED TO MAKE A DEPOSIT TO PLAY FOR REAL MONEY AT POKER STARS. OF COURSE , CLOSE TO IMPOSSIBLE TO DO SO I DIDN'T.

 BOOKED SOME MORE RENTALS AT OUR PROPERTIES. IT IS A GOOD FEELING TO BE HELPING OUT PEOPLE ON THEIR VACATIONS AND SEE OUR CALENDAR FILL UP. I GET THIS SAME FEELING WHEN I USED TO BOOK UP THE NAIL WITH BANDS.

 LIVE STREAMS SATURDAY. ONE FROM THE NAIL ( TODD MOYER 5PM ) AND ONE FROM CENTER CITY ( KMX BAND 7:30PM ). LOOK FOR THEM ON FACEBOOK LIVE.

 WATCHED AN EPISODE OF MONEY HEIST. IT'S GETTING TO THE POINT THAT I WILL FAST FORWARD SOME OF THE REALLY STUPID , VERY REPETITIVE , AND UNBELIEVABLE DUMB ARGUING OF CHARACTERS. BUT....BEST CLIFF HANGING ENDINGS TO EACH EPISODE EVER.

 FRIEND STOPPED OVER TO GIVE US $50 FOR LETTING HIM USE OUR NETFLIX ACCOUNT. THOUGHT THAT WAS KINDA COOL.

 ELDEST FRIENDS STOPPED OVER AGAIN TO WATCH MOVIES IN OUR BASEMENT AND SHOOT POOL. I REALLY DIG THE ONE FRIEND/BARTENDER OF OURS AND I HOOKED HER UP BIG TIME. TO GRADUATE COLLEGE SHE NEEDS TO " OBSERVE " PHYSICAL THERAPY SESSIONS FOR JUST 10 HOURS TOTAL AT ANY HOSPITAL OR REHAB CENTER. SHE WAS SHOT DOWN 10 TIMES AT LOCAL INSTITUTIONS. I MADE ONE TEXT TO A FRIEND/DOORMAN AND GOT HER A SESSION WITH BRYN MAWR TERRACE.

 WE PLAYED WITH THE PUP AT FULL SPEED TODAY SEVERAL TIMES. THIS DOG CAN MOVE SIDEWAYS QUITE QUICKLY. IT IS VERY ENTERTAINING TO WATCH. AGAIN........A 100 LAUGHS A DAY PLUS WARM FEELINGS ON TOP.

 SETTLE IN WITH DINNER....SOME MEATLOAF ( VERY GOOD ) AND A SAUSAGE.

 WE SETTLED IN A WATCHED A MOVIE THAT I THOUGHT GOT GOOD REVIEWS. FOR THE MOST PART I WAS DISAPPOINTED IN THE KING OF STATEN ISLAND BUT NOT TOO DISAPPOINTED SINCE IT IS BASED ON PETE DAVIDSON'S ( SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE ) FATHER DYING AS A FIREMAN. WHEN THIS MOVIE FIRST CAME OUT THEY ASKED $17 TO RENT IT. THE REVIEWS WERE GOOD AT FIRST AND THAN CAME DOWN TO MEDIOCRE. I JUST THOUGHT IT COULD OF BEEN TOLD OR SCRIPTED SO MUCH BETTER. IT REALLY HAD A CHANCE TO BE HEARTFUL AND MOVING. IT FELT LIKE MOST OF THE MOVIE WAS ADLIBBED WITH UNKNOWN DIALOGUE. THERE WAS NO CLEAR STRUCTURE OF THE STORY LINE SO IT SEEMED THE ACTORS JUST WINGED IT. PETE DAVIDSON ACTUALLY SEEMED HE WAS LEARNING DISABLED AT TIMES AND COUPLED WITH A SHIT LOAD OF TATTOOS HE HAS. HE PLAYED A 24 YEAR OLD GUY WHO JUST COULD NOT PUT HIS LIFE TOGETHER THOUGH OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS COULD. THE 2 HOUR LONG MOVIE WAS ALMOST UNWATCHABLE FOR THE FIRST 90 MINUTES BUT WE STUCK WITH IT KNOWING IT HAD TO GET MORE " INVOLVED " AS THE FAMILY COPED WITH LOSING A FATHER AND STARTING A NEW LIFE. I WILL ADMIT THE LAST 30 MINUTES ACHIEVED THIS.

 WE STARTED TO WATCH A FARGO AND I JUST COULD NOT KEEP MY EYES OPEN. YEP.......11PM AND I WAS EXHAUSTED. IT SUCKS WAKING UP SO MANY TIMES DURING THE NIGHT. I REMEMBER 2 SEPARATE SLEEP STUDY TESTS I DID AT 2 DIFFERENT LOCATIONS. BOTH DOCTORS SAID NEARLY VERBATIM , " I HAVE BEEN ANALYZING SLEEP BEHAVIOR FOR MANY YEARS AND I HAVE NEVER SEEN A STUDY THIS BAD. " THE SICK CRAZY NUMBERS WERE I WAS WAKING UP OVER 200 TIMES A NIGHT. MY R.E.M. SLEEP ( RAPID EYE MOVEMENT ) WAS UNDER 5 MINUTES FOR A ONE NIGHT SLEEP STUDY........5.........FUCKING.........MINUTES.

 OFF TO BED WHERE I FEEL AIR COMING OUT OF ONE OF MY DARTH VADAR HOSES OF MY C-PAP MACHINE.....NICE. NOT SURE IF I WILL ACHIEVE MY 5 MINUTE R.E.M. SLEEP TONIGHT. 

  SATURDAY   2 - 13 - 21

 LOSING WEIGHT JUST BLOWS......MINUS.1

 FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE STRIKES AGAIN. THIS TIME AN 18" KITCHEN UNDER CABINET LIGHT. HEY.......THEY RUN $35 TO $70 OR MORE. THIS WAS FREE.

 WATCHED AN EPISODE OF MONEY HEIST. IT WAS VERY GOOD.

 TWO FUN LIVE STREAM SHOWS. MY ELDEST AND I RAN ONE FROM THE NAIL AND GOT VERY GOOD FEEDBACK ON SOUND AND QUALITY. OVER 200 VIEWS IN LESS THAN 1 HOUR. WE HAVE TO THANK THE TODD MOYER BAND.

 THE 2ND LIVE STREAM WAS FROM SOUTH PHILLY. ANOTHER FUN AND COMEDIC SHOW. OVER 200 VIEWS IN UNDER AN HOUR. WE HAVE TO THANK THE KMX BAND.

 NEXT UP ON TUESDAY IS DELCO LIVE AT 9:30PM AT THE NAIL. THIS WILL BE LIVE ON THE RADIO AND STREAMED. THEY WILL BE PERFORMING A MOCK NFL DRAFT BY SUBSTITUTING PLAYERS FOR TOWNSHIPS.

 ELDEST AND I PLAYED WITH THE NEW REGISTER. IT IS AWESOME. DAMN SHAME WE HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO USE IT.

 ICY CONDITIONS TONIGHT....NOT FUN.

 I THINK I HEARD ANOTHER MAJOR SNOW STORM COMING IN. JESUS AM I GLAD THE NAIL DOES NOT HAVE BOOKED SHOWS. CHRIST , WE BE CLOSED THE WHOLE MONTH OF FEBRUARY.

 BACK HOME WE SETTLE IN. WHEELS AND I WATCH 2 EPISODES OF FARGO SEASON 3. AGAIN....VERY GOOD. AGAIN.....HATE THEY SAY IT IS A TRUE STORY WHICH IT IS NOT. I TURNED MY BROTHER ON TO FARGO AND NOW HE IS TOTALLY INTO IT.

 76ERS LOSE AGAIN.....BLOW.

  OFF TO BED AND WOKE UP AT 3:30AM AND 5AM. I FINALLY JUST GOT UP.....BLOW.

 " HOLLYWOOD " AND I ARE WALKING BACK FROM CLASS. WE ARE LEAVING THE BUILDING AND 2 GIRLS ARE GOING DOWN THE STEPS TO LEAVE LIKE US. BOTH GIRLS ARE CUTE BUT THE SHORTER ONE IS A " SMOKE SHOW. " SHE IS WEARING A RED & BLACK PLAID SHORT SKIRT , A HALTER TOP WITH HER TIGHT STOMACH SHOWING , AND BLACK CONVERSE SNEAKERS WITH WHITE SOCKS. " HOLLYWOOD " ASKS THEM IF THEY LIKE TO GO TO CHILI'S WITH US AND IT BE HIS TREAT. WE LEAVE THE BUILDING TOGETHER AND WALK BY THE DORMS. CHILI'S IS ACROSS THE STREET AND WE ENTER. THE GREETER SEATS US AT A TALL TABLE WITH 4 BARSTOOLS AROUND IT. HOLLYWOOD AND ONE GIRL LOOK AT THEIR MENUS. I AM STANDING SLIGHTLY BACK FROM THE TABLE AND THE SHORTER GIRL NUDGES IN FRONT OF ME. SHE PRESSES HER ASS AGAINST ME AND REACHES BEHIND WITH HER HAND AND TOTALLY SQUEEZES MY PACKAGE TO ALMOST BEING PAINFUL. THIS WAS KINDA EMBARRASSING BECAUSE I INSTANTLY GOT AROUSED. THIS GIRL HAD A GYMNAST BODY AND THAT WAS RIGHT UP MY ALLEY FOR ATTRACTION. SHE SPINS A LITTLE BIT AND WHISPERS TO ME , " WE SHOULD GO BACK TO MY DORM ROOM DON'T YA THINK ? "  I REPLY , " YES , YES WE SHOULD. " SHE TELLS HOLLYWOOD AND HER FRIEND TO ORDER US ANYTHING AND WE WOULD BE RIGHT BACK. I PULL OUT MY SHIRT FROM MY PANTS TO COVER AND CONCEAL MY RAGER. SHE GRABS MY HAND AND WE START WALKING BACK TO HER DORM ROOM. SHE PICKS UP THE PACE SO WE ARE ALMOST SEMI-JOGGING. SHE TURNS TO ME AND SAYS , " THE THINGS I AM GOING TO ALLOW YOU TO DO IS GOING TO BE REALLY FUN. ".................dreams ends.

 OH MY GOD WHY COULDN'T I FINISH THIS DAMN DREAM !!!!!!

  SUNDAY     2 - 14 - 21

   HAPPY VALENTINES DAY.....EH.

 WENT THROUGH MY C-PAP STUFF. I HAVE 2 BOXES OF PARTS AND MORE. ONE OF MY AIR HOSES HAS A HOLE IN IT SO I REPLACED THE WHOLE TUBE. THESE PARTS ARE REALLY EXPENSIVE SO HAVING BACK-UP STUFF HELPS. I ALSO NOTICED I HAVE A 2ND MACHINE IN NEW CONDITION BUT IT IS MISSING A PART CALLED A CHAMBER. I PROBABLY USED IT TO HOLD PAINT OR SOMETHING STUPID IN IT. I SEARCHED AND JUST COULD NOT FIND THIS CHAMBER. SO , I ORDERED ONE.

 I USED THE NEW BACK-UP C-PAP MACHINE TONIGHT AND THE AIR FLOW IS MUCH STRONGER. I THINK IT HELPED BECAUSE I SLEPT THROUGH TO 5AM. AND BY " SLEPT THROUGH " I MEAN I DID NOT GET OUT OF BED.

 I REALLY LIKE TO SAVE MY SHAMPOO VACUUM. I PROBABLY COULD GET ONE ON FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE FOR CHEAPER THAN I JUST BOUGHT A PART FOR. OH WELL , I BOUGHT A NEW MOTOR FOR $46.

 PLAYED INTERNET POKER. EVER SINCE I TRIED GET A REAL MONEY ACCOUNT AND WROTE A BAD REVIEW I HAVE BASICALLY LOST EVERY GAME SINCE ON CRUSHING BAD BEATS. EXAMPLE - MY ACE/KING VERSE AN OPPONENT'S ACE/ QUEEN. HE ( OR SHE ) HITS A QUEEN ON THE RIVER. THIS KINDA STUFF HAPPENED 10 TIMES.

 I FINISHED SEASON 4 OF MONEY HEIST. I FOUND OUT THAT THIS SHOW IS NUMBER #1 IN NON-ENGLISH SPEAKING TV DRAMA WORLDWIDE. NETFLIX IS AVAILABLE IN OVER 190 COUNTRIES. I DID NOT KNOW IT WAS THAT POPULAR. LOOKS LIKE SEASON 5 AIRING AT THE END OF THE YEAR MAY BE ITS LAST. I THOUGHT THE LAST 2 EPISODES AND SEASON FINALE WERE VERY GOOD. THE KEY.....NOT MUCH DIALOGUE BETWEEN THE YOUNG ACTORS.

 WHEELS AND I VISIT HER MOM TO DROP OFF SOME EXTRA TURKEY THAT SHE MADE. WE EVEN BROUGHT THE PUP WHO WAS A NUT JOB AND KNOCKED OVER A PLANT FILLED WITH WATER.

 A NICE DINNER WITH WHEELS AND ELDEST.

 FLYERS OFF FOR 2 WEEKS BECAUSE OF COVID.

 SPEAKING OF COVID. REMEMBER 2 WEEKS AGO THE GUY THAT FELL DOWN AT OUR LOCAL PUB AND I WAS THE FIRST TO CRADLE HIM AND HOLD HIM LIKE  A LITTLE BABY.......HE WAS A BAD CASE OF COVID NOW.

 THE ICE WAS NO JOKE.....WELL KINDA. AROUND 1AM TWO NIGHTS AGO MY ELDEST VIDEOS A FRIEND TRYING TO WALK UP OUR INCLINED DRIVEWAY. HE JUST SLID DOWN BACKWARDS EVERY TIME. IT WAS FUNNY AS SHE GIGGLED DURING THE VIDEO.

 SPEAKING OF ICE......A WICKED ALL-TIME MONSTER OF AN ICE STORM IS HITTING THE POCONOS TOMORROW. PEOPLE WORRYING ABOUT POWER OUTAGES.

 SPEAKING OF MOUNTAIN HOUSE..........A RENTER CONTACTS ME THAT A YELLOW TRIANGLE IS FLASHING AND THE ALARM KEEPS BEEPING NON-STOP. YEP.....ALWAYS SOMETHING. SO I LIKE TO GO UP THERE AND FIX THIS. OH , ALSO OUR CONDO FRONT SCREEN DOOR IS FALLING OFF. THIS NEEDS TO BE FIXED TOO. I BET OVER 50 YEARS I HAVE FIXED , PURCHASED AT A DISCOUNT OR FREE , BUILT , OR REMODELED ANY AND ALL OUR STUFF TOTALING A MILLION DOLLARS..........SAVED.

 VALENTINES DAY. WHEELS WATCHED AMERICAN IDOL WHILE I PLAYED INTERNET POKER AND WATCH RIDICULOUSNESS. SHE CRIED AT THE HEART BREAKING STORIES WHILE LAUGHED AT THE STUPIDITY OF THE VIDEOS. OH , THE OUTFIT CHANEL WEST COAST WAS WEARING.....JESUS H.  THE BOTTOM HALF OF HER TITS WERE COMPLETELY OUT. GOD BLESS HER BODY AND MONKEY LAUGH.

 WE DID WATCH 3 EPISODES OF FARGO. I THOUGHT ALL WERE VERY GOOD AND WE FOUND OUT ONE ACTOR IS PLAYING 2 CHARACTERS.

  MONDAY     2 - 15 - 21

  AND FOR THE 3RD TIME IN UNDER 1 YEAR WE HAD TO REPLACE OUR VAN'S WINDSHIELD. GEE......IT WASN'T COVERED UNDER THE WARRANTY. THE TECH INSTALLED THE WINDSHIELD FROM START TO FINISH IN EXACTLY 42 MINUTES WHICH WAS IMPRESSIVE.

  A LARGE ICE STORM IS COMING TO THE POCONOS. THIS IS SCARY STUFF. THE GOOD THING IS IT SUPPOSE TO REACH 44 DEGREES IN THE POCONOS AND 50 DEGREES HERE ON TUESDAY. I HOPE ALLOT OF THIS SNOW MELTS. THE BAD NEWS.....ANOTHER SNOW STORM ON THURSDAY.

 KINDA HAD ANOTHER CHEAT DAY......DAMN IT.

 PEOPLE PLACE ADS ON SOCIAL MEDIA WEBSITES AND DO NOT RESPOND. THIS IS A PET PEEVE OF MINE.

 PLAYING WITH CRAZY MAZE OUTSIDE AT 6:30AM. THE DOG IS JUST TOO FUNNY. I ACTUALLY WANTED TO TEACH HER ABOUT STAYING AWAY FROM CARS. I HAD TO MOVE 3 VEHICLES TO MAKE ROOM FOR THE SAFELITE TECH'S VAN. AS I RE-ARRANGED THE CARS THE PUP GOT OUT OF THE WAY EVERY TIME.

 SPENT SOME TIME IN THE BASEMENT TAKING APART THE SHAMPOO VACUUM. I AM PREPPING IT FOR THE NEW MOTOR. IT WILL BE A SMALL MIRACLE IF I CAN PUT IT BACK TOGETHER.

 WHEELS AND I SHOOT POOL IN THE BASEMENT FOR A LITTLE BIT.

 HEAD TO A FAMILY MEMBER'S HOUSE FOR A REALLY NICE DINNER OF BBQ BABY BACK AND SHORT PORK RIBS. IT WAS FUN AS WE LISTENED TO MUSIC , TOLD STORIES , AND PLAYED " CARDS AGAINST HUMANITY ". ANOTHER COOL THING WAS 2 FOXES WERE RIGHT OUTSIDE THEIR PATIO DOOR CHECKING OUT THE BIRD FEEDER FOOD.

 WITH THE GAME " CARDS AGAINST HUMANITY " I WAS REALLY AMAZED HOW EACH PERSON SEES AND ANSWERS A CARD. I UNDERSTAND IT'S A GAME AND SHOULD BE FUNNY TOO. BUT IF THE QUESTION IS , " I WAS IN BED LAST NIGHT AND MY WIFE ROLLED OVER AND GRABBED MY _______ "   YOU THINK A " NORMAL " AND FUN ANSWER BE LIKE " MY BANANA COCK WITH CHOCOLATE SYRUP , YOUR BROTHER'S FAT ASS , OR YOUR BEER BELLY WITH A CHICKEN ON IT. NOPE......THE ANSWER THAT WOULD WIN MOST OF THE TIME , " A CAR PARKED UNDER A RAINBOW ".  MY JAW WOULD DROP ON SOME OF THE ANSWERS GIVEN BY THE JUDGES. HOW THE BRAIN WORKS IS A MYSTERIOUS THING.

 BACK HOME OUR ELDEST IS FEELING GOOD. I WAS HAPPY FOR HER.  SHE INVITED 4 FRIENDS OVER. OUR BASEMENT IS THE " GO TO " HANG OUT NOW. WHEELS KICKED THEM OUT AT 4AM.

 WHEELS AND I WATCH 2 EPISODES OF FARGO. ONE IN THE AFTERNOON AND ONE LATER IN THE NIGHT. BOTH WERE VERY GOOD.

 OFF TO BED TRYING THIS NEW C-PAP MACHINE FOR THE 2ND NIGHT IN A ROW. I THINK THE STRONGER FORCE OF AIR IS HELPING. TONIGHT I DECIDED TO TURN IT TO THE HIGHEST OF THE 4 SETTINGS. THE AIR SPEEDS ARE LOW , MEDIUM , HIGH , AND HURRICANE.

  TUESDAY      2 - 16 - 21

 A FUN NIGHT AND THE NAIL WAS ALIVE WITH FUN AND LAUGHTER. IT WAS SO GOOD TO SEE.

 FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE STRIKES AGAIN........TWICE. ONE REALLY GOOD AND ONE NOT SO GOOD.

 FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE 1 - DRIVE TO CHESTERBROOK ( ABOUT 18 MINUTES ) TO PICK-UP 7 KITCHEN UNDER CABINET LIGHTS. THEY RANGE FROM $20 TO $80 EACH. I WAS OVERJOYED WITH THIS FREE PURCHASE. THIS PAST SATURDAY I WAS GOING TO SPEND $30 FOR 6 LIGHTS BUT I CANCELLED BECAUSE OUR ACCOUNTANT GOT COVID. WE RE-SCHEDULED AND I FOUND THESE. SUPER PICK UP BECAUSE NOW I CAN FINISH OUR KITCHEN AND INSTALL ONE DOWN IN MY WORK SHOP BASEMENT............MAYBE EVEN THE CONDO TOO.

 FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE 2 - FROM CHESTEBROOK I WORK MY WAY HOME AND STOP IN THE BERWYN AREA. I MEET A NICE COUPLE AT THEIR SOON TO BE CONDO. THEY ARE DOING A FULL RE-MODEL. HE WORKS AT VANGUARD AND SHE WEARS SPANDEX. I WAS HOPING FOR A THREESOME BUT IT WAS A NO GO. ANYWAY , I GOT 2 BATHROOM VANITIES , 2 MARBLE TOPS , AND 2 FAUCETS FOR THE NAIL. I WAS NOT HAPPY WITH THIS FREE PURCHASE. MY MAIN REASON WAS THE FAUCETS. THEY SAID THEY WERE IN GOOD SHAPE AND THEY WERE NOT...THEY WERE OKAY AT BEST. BUT , THE PLUMBERS SNIPPED AND CRIMPED THE HOT AND COLD WATER LINES TO EACH FAUCET. ALL THIS STUFF IS PROBABLY UNUSABLE NOW. THE VANITIES ARE IN GREAT SHAPE AND THE MARBLE TOPS IN GOOD CONDITION. STILL THEY COULD ALL BE TRASH BUT WE WILL SEE. MY VAN WAS TOTALLY FULL. OH , THEY DID GIVE ME 2 WALL CABINETS IN VERY GOOD SHAPE TOO.

 MORE SNOW TOMORROW..........NICE.

 I HEAD TO THE NAIL FOR A WONDERFUL FUN NIGHT. DELCO LIVE RADIO SHOW DID A LIVE STREAM OF A MOCK NFL DRAFT. INSTEAD OF DRAFTING PLAYERS THEY DRAFTED TOWNSHIPS. I THINK RIDLEY AND HAVERTOWN WERE TOP CHOICES. THEY WERE FUNNY. IT WAS 2 HOURS LONG AND I MADE A SPEECH AT THE BEGINNING OF THE STREAM WHICH CAN NOW BE SEEN ON FACEBOOK.

 ONE FUNNY LINE IS A CO-HOST WAS TALKING ABOUT CHESTER AND SAID HE STARTED A NEW BUSINESS CALLED " CRACK DASH ".

 I ALSO FIGURED OUT HOW TO PROGRAM THE REGISTER. IT IS REALLY NICE.

  DELCO LIVE IS A PRETTY POPULAR RADIO SHOW. IN LESS THAN 1 HOUR IT HAS 2300 VIEWS , 180 COMMENTS , AND 25 SHARES. THAT'S PRETTY DAMN IMPRESSIVE.

 SAVE THE NAIL TEE SHIRTS ARE IN FOR PICK-UP OR ORDERING AT THE NAIL ONLY. THE DELCO LIVE GUYS DELIVERED MY ORDER AND USED PAY PAL TO SEND US $1,000 FROM THE TEE-SHIRT SALE PROCEEDS. THAT IS PRETTY DAMN COOL.

 NEW BEER CALLED KENWOOD LIGHT WAS STOCKED. I AM SO GLAD I DID THIS BECAUSE 2 REPS CAME IN AND PURCHASED ALL KENWOOD SALES TO ANY ONE DRINKING THEM ALL NIGHT. I TALKED TO ONE REP AND HIS WIFE AND THEY WERE VERY COOL. WE WILL STOCK THIS BEER. TO ME , IT WAS A CROSS BETWEEN MILLER LITE , COORS LIGHT , AND AMSTEL LIGHT. THEY SPONSORED THE DELCO LIVE BROADCAST.

 TOMORROW I HAVE A MEETING WITH A LOCAL GUY WHO LIKES TO PURCHASE THE NAIL AND LEASE IT BACK TO ME IF I RUN IT. I AM NOT SURE HOW THIS WORKS 100% BUT IT IS WORTH LEARNING ABOUT.

 BACK HOME AFTER 11PM. I WAS TIRED AND SETTLED IN MY ROOM. I WALKED THE PUP FOR ABOUT 10 MINUTES WHICH IS ALWAYS FUN AND BRINGS SO MUCH JOY.

 WHEELS , MYSELF , OUR ELDEST , CHEF DUFF & HIS 2 KIDS ARE WALKING IN CENTER CITY. WE HAD LUNCH AND WE'RE HEADING BACK HOME.  CHEF DUFF SEES A HOUSE HE RENTS AND IT IS OCCUPIED WITH COLLEGE KIDS. HE FREAKS OUT AND KNOWS ONE COLLEGE STUDENT PUNCHED A GIRL. CHEF DUFF IS A FORMER RUGBY PLAYER SO HE IS BIG AND HAS GIRTH. HE STORMS UP THE PORCH AND INTO THE HOUSE AND RIGHT TO THE GUY SITTING ON A COUCH. HE SLAPS HIS HEAD AND YELLS , " NEVER HIT A GIRL !!! ". THE YOUNG STUDENT CRIES OUT , " IT WAS A BOY NOT A GIRL I HIT. I REPLY , " DUDE , IT WAS KIRSTEN DUNST !! SHE'S A GIRLLLLLLL !!!! !! "

 CONTINUED - WE GO BACK TO WALKING TO THE TRAIN STATION AND WE SEE AN OLD RUSTY NAIL PATRON. HIS NAME IS " SNOP ". HE IS A TOTAL FUCKING IDIOT ( HE USES CREDIT CARDS UP TO THEIR LIMITS AND DOESN'T PAY OR JUST MOVES HIS HOME ADDRESS , TRIED TO SET THE NAIL ON FIRE SEVERAL TIMES....I FIGURED IT OUT , AND STOLE FROM US - A COMPLETE FUCKING LOW LIFE ). HE IS SITTING IN AN OLD STYLE BARN STORMING AIRPLANE. HE SAYS HE HAS STARTED A NEW LIFE AND BECAME A PILOT. HE KNOWS OUR ELDEST FRIEND AND BARTENDER AND EVEN WROTE A POEM ABOUT HER. IT WAS CREEPY AS HE READ IT TO US FROM THE COCK PIT. WHEN DONE HE OFFERS 2 OF US A FLY RIDE HOME AND SAYS , " I WILL FIND YOUR HOUSE EVEN IF I HAVE TO CIRCLE BACK FROM DALLAS. " I GUESS HE THOUGHT THIS WAS FUNNY. TO MY SURPRISE WHEELS JUMPS IN THE BACK ALONG WITH ANOTHER PERSON. THERE ARE 2 SEATS SIDE BY SIDE BEHIND THE PILOT.

 CONTINUED - I TOTALLY DO NOT TRUST " SNOP " BEING A PILOT AND I WALK AWAY. I HAVE EXTREMELY BITTER MEMORIES OF HIM. WE WAVE TO THEM AS THE PLANE SLOWLY ROLLS DOWN A LONG WIDE STREET FOR TAKE OFF WHILE MY ELDEST , CHEF DUFF , HIS 2 KIDS , AND ME WALK TOWARDS THE TRAIN STATION. DUFF'S KIDS START FIGHTING AND HE EXPLAINS TO ME THAT THIS IS A NORMAL THING. I AGREED. WE HEAR A LOUD AIRPLANE ENGINE AND TURN AROUND. WE SEE THE PLANE WHIP BY US AN ASCEND. " SNOP " IS A FUCKING IDIOT AND FLIES THE PLANE WAY TOO LOW IN THE CITY. HE TRIES TO GO UP AND OVER A BUILDING BUT THE BELLY OF THE PLANE HITS THE SIDE OF A BUILDING AND STALLS. THE PLANE IS POINTING STRAIGHT UP AND BEGINS TO FALL BACKWARDS.

 CONTINUED - I PANIC SCREAM OUT LOUD , " NOOOOOOOO!!!!! YOU FUCKING ASSHOOOOOOLE !!!!! " I SEE WHEELS FALL OUT OF HER SEAT AND SHE FALLS FROM 200 FEET HIGH. IN MID AIR SHE SCREAMS WITH UTTER FEAR " NOOOOOOO !!! " I RUN TOWARDS HER BECAUSE I WANTED TO CATCH HER. I KNOW IT WAS NOT REALISTIC BUT I HAD TO DO SOMETHING. SHE WAS TOO FAR AWAY AND SHE FALLS BEHIND ANOTHER BUILDING. I AM SCREAMING IN SHOCK , ANGER , AND PAIN AS I SEE THIS ALL UNFOLD. I WANT TO FIND THE PLANE WITH "SNOP" IN IT AND FUCKING PUNCH HIS HEAD UNTIL IT POPS......................dream ends.

  WEDNESDAY    2 - 17 - 21

 I THOUGHT THIS WHOLE DAY WAS THURSDAY.

 DOWN THE BASEMENT I TEST THE 8 FREE UNDER CABINET LIGHTS I GOT. ALL WORK EXCEPT ONE. TO MY SURPRISE I HAD AN EXTRA BULB IN MY TOOL ROOM. ALL WORK NOW.

 SPENT SOME TIME WITH THE PUPPY IN THE BASEMENT AND OUTSIDE TOO. SHE CRACKS ME UP AND SCARES ME AS SHE BOLTS AROUND THE HOUSE FOR FUN. OH , PICKING UP POOP IN WHITE SNOW AND THAN DUMPING....NOT FUN.

 " SAVE THE NAIL " TEE SHIRTS ARE IN. CAN ORDER RIGHT THROUGH US.

 MEET A PERSPECTIVE BUYER WITH A PARTNER AND 2 REALTORS AT THE NAIL. I STILL DON'T REALLY KNOW WHAT IT MEANS FOR THEM TO BUY AND LEASE IT BACK TO US FOR ME TO RUN. REALISTICALLY , WE ARE CLOSED SO HOW CAN THIS HAPPEN ?

 DID NOT REALIZE IT WAS WEDNESDAY FACETIMING DAY. OUR YOUNGEST CALLS ME AND I AM THINKING , " COOL , I GET AN EXTRA DAY TO TALK TO HER ". WE GIGGLED AND THIS FACETIIMING IS SO COOL. SHE IS IN HER DORM ROOM AND WE MADE JOKES AND TALKED. ALL HER FRIENDS WILL GET " SAVE THE NAIL " TEE SHIRTS.

 FELT BAD FOR OUR ELDEST WHO FOUND OUT THE LOWLIFE GUY SHE APARTMENT & DOG SAT IS NOT GOING TO PAY HER ANYTHING. WHAT A FUCKING SHIT SHOW OF A PERSON. I WILL GIVE YOU ONE SENTENCE THAT DESCRIBED THIS PERSON......HIS APARTMENT HAS A TON OF DOG SHIT AND DOG PISS ON THE CARPET. " GET THE PICTURE ?

 BOOKED SOME MORE BANDS WHICH IS ALWAYS NICE.

 FINISHED SEASON 3 OF FARGO.  IT WAS VERY GOOD.

 FACETIME 2 MORE TIMES WITH OUR YOUNGEST. IT WAS AWESOME.

 TOOK ALL CABINETRY AND SINKS OUT OF MY VAN AND PLACED THEM NEATLY IN THE GARAGE. I ALSO MOVED OUR VEHICLES UP ON BACKYARD GRASS PREPARING FOR ANOTHER DAMN SNOW STORM.

 I SET UP A SNOW PLOW FOR OUR MOUNTAIN HOUSE DRIVEWAY. WE ARE ALLOWING RENTERS TO GO UP THURSDAY AFTERNOON BUT NOW I AM NERVOUS BECAUSE THE SNOW STORM WILL BE RIGHT IN THEIR PATH.

 76ERS BUILD UP 40 POINT LEAD AND WIN BY 4.....NICE.

 AFTER 10 DAYS OFF FLYERS PLAY TOMORROW.

 VARIANCE TO COVID-19 COULD BE 10X WORSE THAN CORONA VIRUS.........JESUS CHRIST I FEEL THIS WILL NEVER END.

 STARTING WATCH A MOVIE WITH MARK WAHLBERG CALLED INSTANT FAMILY. IT IS BASED ON A TRUE STORY BUT I FELL ASLEEP ABOUT 40 MINUTES INTO IT. I WILL RE-WATCH IT BECAUSE IT SO BRINGS LIGHT TO KIDS WHO NEED HOMES.

  OFF TO BED THINKING HOW MY KID NEEDS A BACK-UP. SHE WAS QUITE UPSET ON THIS LOW-LIFE GUY'S TEXTS.

 I SLEPT LIKE ASS.

  THURSDAY      2 - 18 - 21

 WELP , THIS WAS AN INTERESTING DAY.....AND BAD NEWS.

 WALK DOG AND PUSH SNOW OFF VEHICLES ROOFS. DOG IS UNLEASHED AND TAKES OFF AROUND THE HOUSE. IT SCARES ME. SHE DOE IT A 2ND TIME AND I RUN DOWN THE DRIVEWAY. LUCKILY , A NEIGHBOR GRABBED HER BY THE HARNESS 3 HOUSES UP.

 THE SNOW COMES AND THAT MEANS SNOW PLOWING.  HERE WE GO :

 - TO MY GARAGE - I FLIP THE BLOWER UPSIDE DOWN AND USE A DIFFERENT HIGHER GRADE LUBRICANT TO GREASE THE SPROCKETS.  THE WHEELS HAVE BEEN LOCKING BADLY. I'M HOPING THIS WORKS BETTER.

 - THE SNOW IS LIGHT WITH CRYSTALLIZED HALE INTO IT. IT IS SLIGHTLY DRIZZLING FROZEN RAIN AND I AM VERY SURPRISED THE BLOWER IS THROWING THE SNOW VERY WELL. I FINISH MY PROPERTY WITH NO HASSLES.

 - I WALK THE MACHINE UP THE STREET AND DO 4 NEIGHBOR'S HOMES AND 4 OTHER NEIGHBOR'S SIDEWALKS.

 BACK HOME I SHOVEL LITTLE AREAS AND PUT THE BLOWER AWAY. THE MACHINE DID ITS JOB MUCH BETTER. WORKING ON THE CARBURETOR AND LUBING THE SPROCKETS LIKE A PORNO MOVIE REALLY HELPED.

 MOVE 2 VEHICLES DOWN TO THE DRIVEWAY AND START THE ENGINES TO MELT WINDSHIELDS. MY ELDEST AND I TAKE A RIDE TO MY PARENTS. HERE IS HOW THIS WENT :

 - ROADS ARE SLIPPERY AND WE MAKE IT THERE. I HAVE A LITTLE TROUBLE STARTING THE FREE SNOW BLOWER I LEFT AT MY PARENT'S HOUSE. BUT........IT WORKS PERFECTLY AND I PLOW THE DRIVEWAY AND PATHWAYS.

 - MY ELDEST CLEANS OFF THE CARS AND SHOVELS A BIT. I BLOW AS MUCH SNOW ONTO THEIR ANGRY NEIGHBOR'S PROPERTY AS I COULD. LATER , MY ELDEST SAYS TO ME , " THE LADY CAME OUT TO YELL AT YOU BUT THE GRANDDAUGHTER STOPPED HER. " OH HOW I WISH SHE CAME OUT TO CONFRONT ME.

 - BLOWER HITS A DAMN NEWSPAPER BURIED IN THE SNOW. IT TOOK SOME TIME TO GET IT UN-WEDGED. THE MACHINE COMES WITH A SMALL SOLID BLACK SHOVEL CLIPPED TO THE FRONT OF THE PLOW. I USED THIS TO DISLODGE THE NEWSPAPER. OTHER THAN THAT THIS MACHINE WORKS EXCELLENT.

 - WE HAVE A NICE DINNER AND SHOW VIDEOS AND PICTURES TO MY PARENTS. MY DAD DRINKS SOME WHITE WINE. THIS IS EXTREMELY RARE.

 WE ROLL OUT AND STOP AT THE NAIL. MY KID IS NOT HAPPY WE HAVE TO SHOVEL HERE. I TELL HER , " FOR 30 MINUTES I WILL GIVE YOU A 6 PACK OF WHITE CLAW."  I NEVER SEEN THE KID MOVE SO FAST.

 MY NEIGHBOR PLOWED THE BACK LOT WHICH IS RARE. WE SHOVELED THE BACK DOORS AND FRONT WALK WAY. WE WERE DONE IN LESS THAN 30 MINUTES.

 BACK HOME OUR 4 WHEEL DRIVE STRUGGLES TO GET UP OUR ICY DRIVEWAY. I WAS BURNING RUBBER.

 SETTLE IN TO WATCH THE FLYERS LOSE IN A SHOOT-OUT OVERTIME ( BIG SURPRISE ) AND SEASON 4 OPENER OF FARGO. I THOUGHT IT WAS GOOD.

 I ALLOWED RENTERS TO HEAD TO THE MOUNTAIN HOUSE. THE SCHEDULED PLOW WORKED PERFECTLY BEFORE THEY ARRIVED. ONE THING THAT DID NOT WORK OUT WAS OUR CLEANER WAS NOT RESPONDING TO MY TEXTS DURING THE WEEK. I FOUND OUT THE HOUSE WAS NOT CLEANED. SHE RAN OVER AND CLEANED AND CHECKED IT. THIS WAS GOOD.....BUT OF COURSE THERE IS BAD.

 THE BAD - CLEANER SENDS ME PICTURES OF A WET WALL AND CEILING IN A BEDROOM. THIS IS CAUSED FROM ICE DAMMING. OH , AND OUR NEW FRIDGE IS NOT COLD. I SWEAR IT IS ALWAYS SOMETHING. CLEANER LEAVES AS RENTERS ARE MOVING IN. SHE TEXTS ME , " RENTERS ARE YOUNG AND THEY HAVE  A TON OF BEER. " I THINK I AM GOING TO REGRET HAVE 24 YEAR OLDS RENT OUR HOME EVEN THOUGH I KNOW THE GRANDSON.

 PARTS FOR MY C-PAP AND SHAMPOO VACUUM COME IN. I SPEND ABOUT 15 MINUTES ON THE C-PAP MACHINE AND IT STILL DOESN'T TO WORK.

 END THE NIGHT AND MY SHOULDER HURTS.

 SPEAKING OF HURTZ. CARSON WENTZ WAS TRADED TO THE COLTS. HE IS RE-UNITED WITH COACH FRANK REICH , A TOP 5 DEFENSIVE TEAM , A TOP 10 OFFENSIVE TEAM , AND PLAYING IN A DOME. I THINK COLTS WILL WIN NEXT 3 SUPER BOWLS. EAGLES AND NEW YOUNG QB HURTZ ARE THE NEW JETS..........BLOW.

 ELDEST HAS FRIENDS OVER AGAIN AFTER GOING SLEDDING.

 OFF TO BED AND GOT UP 4 TIMES TO PEE. OH MY GOD.

  FRIDAY        2 - 19 - 21

 I DON'T THINK THAT IS WHAT A MEN'S DIAPER IS USED FOR........

 BESIDES THE MOUNTAIN HOUSE LEAKS AND THE CONDO'S FRONT STORM DOOR FALLING OFF I GOT SOME MORE GOOD NEWS......THE WALK-IN FRIDGE AT THE NAIL IS NOT COOLING.......NICE.

 I HAVE BEEN MAKING A GOOD PUSH FOR VACATION RENTALS LATELY.

 I HAVE 2 BAGS OF DOG FRIENDLY SALT. SO , I USED THEM AROUND OUR DRIVEWAY AND PATHS. I ALSO CLEANED THE SNOW OFF CARS AND STARTED THE ENGINES.....AGAIN.

 A NICE FACT - LAST YEARS SNOW - 1/2 AN INCH. THIS YEARS SNOW - 27+ INCHES. THIS EQUALS = BLOW.

 A NICE FOOTBALL FACT - A TEAM HAS NOT DRAFTED A QUARTERBACK IN THE FIRST ROUND WHEN THEY HAVE A FRANCHISE QUARTERBACK OF THEIR OWN AND HE IS LESS THAN 28 YEARS OLD. ONLY TEAM TO DO THIS.....THE EAGLES.  THE LAST TEAM WAS THE JETS 50 YEARS AGO WITH JOE NAMATH.

 TOOK A RIDE TO DROP OFF A SAVE THE NAIL TEE-SHIRT TO GLEN MACNOW. WE MESSAGED BACK AND FORTH WHICH WAS KIINDA COOL.

 STOPPED AT THE BANK'S DRIVE THRU. THIS WAS FUN. THE DEPOSIT HAD NO BANKING NUMBERS AND THE AMOUNT WAS WRONG. I HAD TO CALL WHEELS WHO DIDN'T ANSWER AT FIRST. CARS BEEPING THEIR HORNS BEHIND ME FOR 15 MINUTES. IT WAS FUCKING EMBARRASSING. THE TELLER WAS NICE AND GAVE MAZE A DOG TREAT.

 STOPPED AT THE NAIL TO SALT OUR FRONT WALK WAYS AND BACK LOT.

 STOPPED AT D.M.I. HARDWARE TO PURCHASE A LARGE C-CLAMP.

 BACK HOME I WORK ON A NEW C-PAP MACHINE. IT IS MISSING THINGS BUT TODAY THAT PART WAS INSTALLED. OF COURSE IT DOES NOT WORK. THE LID WILL NOT CLOSE TO MAKE THE MACHINE TURN ON. THE SCREEN KEEPS READING " LID NOT CLOSED ". SO I TRIED USING A C-CLAMP TO LOCK IT IN POSITION. STILL NO GO. IT ENDS UP IT IS MISSING ANOTHER PART.......A RUBBER SEAL. NO WONDER I NEVER USED THIS DAMN MACHINE. I TRY MACGYVERING IT BY SUBSTITUTING A SEAL WITH RUBBER CAULK AND A MEN'S DIAPER. YEP , I CUT A MEN'S DIAPER INTO A SQUARE AND PLACED IT IN THE MACHINE. BELIEVE IT OR NOT IT FRIGGIN' WORKED.....BUT NOT GOOD ENOUGH. I WILL ORDER THE PROPER SEAL AND USE THE MEN'S DIAPERS ACCORDINGLY..........WITH MY ASS.

 ELDEST AND I DELETED THE GOFUNDME PAGE AND SAVETHENAIL2021 VENMO ACCOUNTS. WE WILL CONTINUE TO DO LIVE STREAM SHOWS AND SELL THE REMAINING SAVE THE NAIL TEE SHIRTS AND SHARE THE GOFUNDME PAGE FOR TOMMY SCARS FAMILY.

 ORDERING SHIRTS IS JUST THROUGH THE NAIL NOW.

 PLAY WITH THE PUP......A 100 LAUGHS AND ENJOYMENT.

ELDEST FRIEND/BARTENDER COMES OVER AND WE TALK IN OUR MAIN ROOM AND PLAY WITH THE PUP FOR ABOUT 45 MINUTES. THE FRIEND IS ADORABLE AND SHE ENTERTAINED US WITH A VIDEO OFF HER SLEDDING RIGHT UP AND OFF A KID MADE RAMP. SHE SOARED AND HIT THE GROUND HARD. I ASKED HER WHEN IN MID AIR DID YOU START SINGING " I BELIEVE I CAN FLY "

 PIZZA FOR DINNER. I SWEAR MY INTENTIONS WERE GOOD ABOUT LOSING WEIGHT BUT IT IS SO EASY TO JUST SAY "F" IT.

 WE WATCH AN EPISODE OF DIRK GENTLY. IT WAS GOOD.

 OFF TO BED. TRY CPAP MACHINE WITH MEN'S DIAPER. I DID NOT USE IT. I TOOK IT OUT OF THE MACHINE AND PUT IN ON AROUND MY ASS AND BALLS. FOR THE FIRST TIME I DID NOT GET UP TO PEE IN THE BATHROOM.....I JUST STAYED IN BED.

 AND FINALLY MY RUSTY NAIL FACEBOOK ACCOUNT WAS HACKED. APPARENTLY SOME KIND OF " FISHING " VIRUS. IT IS GOING THROUGH MY " FRIENDS " LIKE WATER....OH....MY....GOD.

   SATURDAY     2 - 20 - 21

 I LIKE TRUMP , THE FLYERS , AND HUNTING...........OMG.

 WELP......THROW THE DIET OUT THE WINDOW AGAIN. BUT , MAN IT WAS FUN.

  CHANGE MY FACEBOOK PASSWORD AND RUN A SCAN ON MY COMPUTER. THIS NASTY VIRUS WAS PERFECT TIMING TO GET ME. IT SENT OUT A SHITLOAD OF VIDEOS TO MANY OF MY " FRIENDS ". MY PHONE WAS NON-STOP FOR 10 HOURS. FUCKING BASTARD 3RD WORLD ASSHOLES WHO HATE US.

 UP EARLY AND ORDERED A SEAL FOR MY CPAP MACHINE. IT WILL REPLACE MY DIAPER SEAL.

 FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE STRIKES AGAIN.......TWICE.

  HERE'S THE STORIES.

 FIRST STORY - TEXT A GUY SELLING AN ASH/TRASHCAN FOR $10. I MENTION THE NAIL AND HE KNOWS US SO HE SAYS I CAN HAVE IT FOR FREE. LAST SHOW WE HAD A SHITLOAD OF CIGARETTE BUTTS OUTSIDE ON THE GROUND. MAN , DOES THIS BOTHER ME. OUR ASHCAN BURNT LIKE GUMBY IN A BOND FIRE SO I WANTED ONE TO REPLACE IT. SO LAST WEEK HE AGREES TO FREE AND HE SAID I CAN LOOK AROUND HIS GARAGE FOR MORE STUFF TO GET. WE CAN'T AGREE ON A TIME SO I TELL HIM I TEXT HIM TOMORROW.....NO RESPONSE. I TEXT HIM THURSDAY.......NO RESPONSE. WHAT IS FRUSTRATING IS I CAN " SEE " HE SAW MY FACEBOOK MESSAGE. I TEXT HIM FRIDAY.......NO RESPONSE. SO TODAY I GO ON HIS FACEBOOK PROFILE. I SEE HE BIG TIME LIKES TRUMP , THE FLYERS , AND HUNTING. MY NEXT TEXT , " I LIKE TRUMP , THE FLYERS , AND HUNTING. " HE RESPONDS IN UNDER 30 SECONDS.

 FIRST STORY CONTINUED - HE ASKS ME TO DRIVE OUT NOW. I AM THERE IN 13 MINUTES AND...................HE LEFT. OH MY GOD. PLUS , IT WAS A CORPORATE CENTER NOT A HOUSE. I TEXT HIM AND HE SAYS HE LEFT THE NEW ASH/TRASHCAN OUTSIDE. I RETRIEVE IT AND THE CAN IS IN PERFECT SHAPE. I TEXT HIM ABOUT THE OTHER STUFF AND HE SAYS HE HAS HANGING SHOP LIGHTS I DEFINITELY WOULD OF GOT. BUT....SINCE HE LEFT I COULD NOT SEE THE REST OF HIS STUFF SO I LEFT TOO. HE COULDN'T WAIT 13 FUCKING MINUTES.

 SECOND STORY - A REALLY NICE LADY IS SELLING HER HOUSE. SHE HAS 6 REALLY COOL BEER GLASSES FOR FREE. SHE IS ONLY 3 MINUTES FROM OUR HOUSE. I STOP BY AND SHE HAS OTHER STUFF OUT IN HER DRIVEWAY. I TAKE A LARGE BASKET OF CAR AND MORE CLEANING SUPPLIES. I TEXT HER I CAN NOT FIND THE BEER GLASSES. SHE IMMEDIATELY TEXTS BACK , " COMING ". SHE COMES OUTSIDE AND SHE INDIVIDUALLY WRAPPED THE GLASSES AND PLACED THEM IN A BOX. WE EXCHANGE HELLOS AND SHE WAS REALLY NICE. 

 OFF TO THE NAIL AND BEGIN A LONG LIST OF THINGS TO DO. MY MAIN THING WAS HAVING OUR A/C-FRIDGE TECHNICIAN STOP BY. OUR WALK-IN FREEZER WAS AT 50 DEGREES. WHILE WAITING FOR HIM I MOVED ALL OUR WARM BEER INTO OUR BEER BINS BEHIND THE BAR. THIS WAS NOT FUN.

 I SALTED AGAIN OUT FRONT AND BACK AREAS AND SHOVELED OUT A NICE LITTLE SECTION FOR OUR NEW ASH/TRASHCAN.  OH , ALL THE SALT I GOT ( AND IT'S A LOT ) WAS FREE OVER THE LAST 2 YEARS OF ME SEARCHING FOR IT ONLINE AND FOLLOWING SALT TRUCKS.....LOL......TRUE STORY. I WILL NEVER BUY SALT OR LIGHT BULBS THE REST OF MY LIFE.

 TEXT OUR ACCOUNTANT TO SEE HOW HE IS DOING WITH COVID.

 GIVE A RENTER 16 LIGHT BULBS. I FELT BAD BECAUSE ANY TIME I AM THERE EVER4Y BULB IS OUT.

 THE BAND LOADS IN AND THEY ARE SUPER COOL. THEY BUY DRINKS , FOOD , AND SAVE THE NAIL TEE SHIRTS. THEY ARE OVER THE TOP SUPER NICE. THE BAND'S NAME IS SWEET MOVES AND THEY DID AN AWESOME JOB OF STREAMING. HAVE TO THANK MY KIDS FOR DOING THE STREAM AGAIN.

 WE SEMI-OPENED UP FOR FRIENDS AND PATRONS TO SEE THE LIVE STREAM SHOW. IT WAS SO NICE TO SEE PEOPLE , MUSIC , AND THE VIBE AGAIN.

 ONE BAND MEMBER FRIEND TIPPED OUR BARTENDER $200. OUR ELDEST GOT UPSET ( IN A GOOD WAY ).

 FRIDGE TECH SHOWS UP AND WITHIN 1 HOUR HE FIXES OUR WALK-IN BOX. IT IS NOW AN ICY 31 DEGREES. WE WILL KEEP AN EYE ON IT.

 A 2ND LIVE STREAM WAS OFF-SITE AND THEY WERE AWESOME !!! A 7 PIECE BAND FRONTED BY 3 FEMALES. THEY WERE GOOD AND SO MUCH FUN DANCING AROUND !!! THE GIRLS DRESSED IN TIGHT BLACK SKIRTS AND WERE SUPER COOL. THE BAND IS CALLED MALPRACTICE.

 MY ELDEST AND I GET ALOT OF THINGS DONE. BUT THAN A SPECIAL GUEST ARRIVES. HIS NAME IS " HOLLYWOOD ". THIS MEANS ONE THING.......BOOZE. HE ARRIVES AT 5PM AND SAYS HE CAN ONLY STAY UNTIL 6:30PM BECAUSE HE HAS A BIRTHDAY PARTY TO ATTEND. BY 8:30PM WE ARE FEELING GOOD AT THE BLACK HOLE. WE TELL SOME FUN STORIES AND COMPARE BEST AND WORST CONCERTS WE EVER BEEN TO. I AM SO SURPRISED HOLLYWOOD ( WHO'S BEEN TO OVER 700 SHOWS ) HAS 3 FEMALE ARTISTS IN HIS TOP 5.....MADONNA , LADY GAGA , AND TAYLOR SWIFT. IT WAS FUN TELLING OTHER STORIES TOO AND MAN DID HE HAVE SOME. ONE " ENCOUNTER " WITH A GIRL IN THE BEDROOM HOLLYWOOD TOLD US A TV FELL ON HIS HEAD WHILE DOING THE DEED. LATER HE TOLD ME MORE STORIES.....TOO FUNNY.

 WE DECIDE TO DRIVE HOME ( CAREFULLY ) AND MEET AT OUR LOCAL PUB FLIP & BAILEYS. HOLLYWOOD SAYS HE IS RIGHT BEHIND US. WE PARK AT HOME AND WHEELS JOINS US. ONE HOUR LATER HOLLYWOOD WALKS IN. HE STOPPED AT ANOTHER BAR FIRST. OH MY GOD.

 WALK HOME AND AND I AM FEELING GOOD. OFF TO BED AND I PUT A DIAPER ON.

 SUNDAY       2 - 21 - 21

 I'M NOT REALLY WEARING A DIAPER........YET.

 WORKED ON MY SHAMPOO VACUUM MACHINE AND ACTUALLY INSTALLED THE NEW MOTOR. I TURN IT ON AND..........IT SMOKES LIKE THE BEJESUS. IT IS DONE. I THREW IT OUT. I WILL ADD THIS TO ME FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE LIST. I INSTALLED A NICE WORK LIGHT TO A WALL CABINET. IT LOOKS HORRIBLE BUT MAN IT DID THE JOB.

 OFF TO THE NAIL TO PREP FOR ANOTHER LIVE STREAM SHOW. ALMOST 300 VIEWS IN THE 3 HOUR BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN-LIKE SET. I HOPE YOU ENJOYED MY SILLINESS WITH PUPPETS , SIGNS , AND TALKING TO THE CAMERA. WE HAVE TO THANK THE BAND GENE & THE HURRICANES. EVERY SONG WAS FUN.

 BARTENDER IS MAKING WAY MORE THAN ME. A PATRON TIPPED HER A $100. I HAVE BEEN SLOWLY OPENING UP TO THE PUBLIC AND IT WAS REALLY NICE TO SEE SOME REGULARS AND CO-WORKERS. ONE WORKER SAID , " SITTING AT HOME THESE LAST LONG MONTHS I KEPT THINKING I WANT TO GO HOME. I THOUGHT......THE NAIL IS MY HOME. "

 THE ASHCAN WORKED EXCELLENT TONIGHT.

 I CHILL AND IT WAS FUN TO MAKE FOOD ORDERS AGAIN. I ALSO CHANGED THE MARQUEE SIGN AND DID OTHER STUFF.

 BOOKED ANOTHER RENTER AND  A BIRTHDAY SHOW.

 TO MY SURPRISE MY ELDEST SAID , " LET'S ROLL. " I LEFT EARLY AND BEGAN PACKING FOR A ROAD TRIP AT HOME. I WAS EXHAUSTED AND MY LEGS WERE IN FIRST GEAR. WHEELS HELPED PREP TOO. FOR ABOUT 90 MINUTES I DOUBLE CHECKED MY LISTS AND WHEN OUR ELDEST GOT HOME WE GOT ON THE ROAD NORTH AT 10PM AT NIGHT.....SHE DROVE.

 WE TALKED AND LISTENED TO MUSIC AND THE TIME FLEW BY.

 FLYERS LOSE TO THE MOST GORGEOUS OUTDOOR ICE HOCKEY RINK EVER. OH MY GOD THE PICTURES THE TV WAS SHOWING......ABSOLUTELY MAGNIFICENT. OH.....THEY GOT SMOKED 7 - 3 .

 76ERS LOSE TOO.......BLOW.

 STOP AT WAWA TO GAS UP AND BUY ROAST BEEF HOAGIES FOR TOMORROW'S LUNCH. I REALLY LIKE MY WAWA CREDIT CARD.

 WE ARRIVE AT OUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME AND IT IS ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL HERE. A TON OF SNOW EVERYWHERE BUT SO PRISTINE. THE YOUNG RENTERS WHO I WAS VERY NERVOUS ABOUT LEFT OUR HOME PERFECT. WE UNLOAD AND SETTLE IN. I MAKE A DRINK AND STAY UP TO ABOUT 12:30AM.

 OFF TO SLEEP AND SPEND ABOUT 30 MINUTES MAKING MY BED AND MORE.

 I DID NOT SLEEP WELL WHICH KINDA PISSED ME OFF.

   MONDAY     2 - 22 - 21

 ABOUT 4 INCHES OF SNOW AND MAN DOES IT LOOK BEAUTIFUL.

 FIRST THING I SEE IN THE MORNING WITH ALL THE SNOW.....3 DEER WALKING RIGHT PAST OUR HOUSE AND ONE WAS ON THE LAKE. I TOOK A VIDEO OF THEM AND POSTED IT ON FACEBOOK.

 DID SOME THINGS TODAY - CHOPPED WOOD OLD SCHOOL STYLE WITH AN AXE WHERE BLACK ANTS WERE HIBERNATING IN , WORKED ON A WET WALL AND CEILING FROM AN ICE DAMN , SHOVELED SNOW , PILED WOOD , SWEPT OFF VEHICLE OF SNOW , CHANGED BULBS , FIXED 10 THINGS , PLAYED WITH PUP IN THE DEEP SNOW , AND MORE.

 WAWA RECOMMENDED HOAGIE - DOUBLE ROAST BEEF WITH DOUBLE CHEESE. GOOD GOD IT WAS EXCELLENT.

 TRIED A NEW NETFILX SERIES CALLED GODLESS WITH JEFF BRIDGES. IT WAS GOOD AND I WILL TRY THE 2ND EPISODE. THE THEME - " AN 1800'S OLD COWBOY TOWN WITH ALL WOMEN BECAUSE ALL THE MEN DIED IN A FREAK MINE SHAFT EXPLOSION.

 MADE AN OUTSTANDING BREAKFAST SANDWICH. I AM NOT SURE WHAT I DID BUT THIS EGG , CHEESE , HAM SANDWICH ON AN ENGLISH MUFFIN WAS BORDER LINE MCDONALDS GREAT.

 I THOUGHT SOMEONE MOVED THE HEAVY CEMENT LID OFF OUR SEPTIC TANK. APPARENTLY IT WAS AN OPTICAL ILLUSION WITH A SNOW BANK AND A FLOOD LIGHT SHADOW. MAN , I WOULD OF BET MONEY IT WAS HALF SLID OFF. LUCKILY , IT WAS NOT.

 TALKED TO A FRIEND AND HE DROVE BY THE NAIL AND SAW THE MARQUEE SAY , " THE NAIL IS SAVED ". HE CALLS ME AND ASKS , " DID YOU GUY GO RELIGIOUS ON ME ? " APPARENTLY , HE DID NOT GO ON FACEBOOK FOR ALMOST  A YEAR WHERE WE WOULD OF SAW THE FLOOD OF POSTS ABOUT THE NAIL , LIVE STREAMING , AND GOFUNDME PAGES.

 MY KID AND I WATCH 4 EPISODES OF WANDAVISION. THEY WERE VERY GOOD. WHAT IS COOL IS AT THIS HOUSE OUR ROKU TV HAS EVERY STREAM AVAILABLE BECAUSE RENTERS LOG IN AND FORGET TO LOG OUT.

 TALKED TO CHARLIE WEAVER'S OWNER. GOOD CHANCE WE WILL BE STOPPING BY.

 A YOUNG FRIEND OF OUR ELDEST WRITES A NICE FACEBOOK MESSAGE TO ME ABOUT HOW WHEELS & I TREATED HIM TO BEVERAGE AND FOOD SATURDAY NIGHT. I RESPONDED AROUND 6AM WITH A SIMPLE QUICK  " OK ". HE WAS A LITTLE MIFFED AND TOLD MY ELDEST. SO , TODAY I WROTE HIM A BOOK BACK.

  WIND DOWN THE NIGHT AND WE WATCH A MOVIE CALLED I CARE A LOT. ONE MAIN STAR IS THE SHORT PERSON FROM GAME OF THRONES PETER DINKLAGE WHO I REALLY LIKE. IT WAS BAD TO OKAY TO EH. IF IT DID NOT HAVE THE ENDING I WOULD OF NOT LIKED THIS MOVIE AT ALL. THE ENDING SAVED IT FROM REALLY SUCKING.

 MAN , TEXAS IS TAKING A BEATING.

 SLEPT OKAY TO DECENT. STILL WISH I SLEEP THROUGH THE NIGHT JUST ONE FRIGGIN' TIME.

 THE DOG JUST DOWNRIGHT CRACKS US UP. WE HAVE BEEN CHASING AND GETTING HER RILED UP. SHE IS PRETTY FUNNY IN THE DEEP SNOW TOO.

 MAYBE YOU CAN ANSWER THIS QUESTION FROM MY YOUNGEST TRYING TO HELP A BUSINESS CLASS.

 QUESTION - " WHAT ARE THE FIRST 5 WORDS YOU THINK OF WHEN YOU HEAR GINGER ALE ? "

 MY ANSWER - IT'S WHAT MY GRANDMA AND MOM ALWAYS SAID TO ME , " GOOD FOR AN UPSET STOMACH ".

 YOUNGEST RESPONSE - " THAT IS GOOD BUT THEY MUST BE 5 SEPARATE DESCRIPTIVE WORDS ".

 MY ANSWER - " BUBBLY , SETTLING , TASTY , COMFORTING , AND WHISKEY ".

 I WAS LOOKING OUTSIDE AND SEEING HOW OVER THE TOP BEAUTIFUL IT IS HERE. I THOUGHT , " MAN THIS IS SO COOL. " ABOUT 30 SECONDS LATER OUR SECURITY PAD STARTING BEEPING AND MALFUNCTIONING. IT TOOK ME 30 MINUTES TO DISARM IT. I REALLY FEEL IT WAS GOD'S WAY OF SAYING , " HEY CHRIS , YOU'RE GETTING TOO FAT LOOKING AT MY NATURE SO I WILL PUT YOU TO WORK.........FATTY. "

  TUESDAY    2 - 23 - 21

 WHAT THE HELL IS THAT ?

  I HAD EASILY 10 PUNCH LIST JOBS GOING AT ONCE AND I NOTICE SOME MOVEMENT UNDER A LARGE PINE CANOPY TREE. IT TOOK ME JUST A SECOND TO REALIZE IT WAS ALMOST 20 DEER HANGING UNDER IT. ONE BY ONE THEY STARTED A " FOLLOW THE LEADER " LINE ACROSS OUR BACK YARD. I FILMED AND POSTED IT.....KINDA COOL. IT WAS NICE HOW MUCH FAMILY COMMENTED.

 CONTINUED MY PROJECTS THROUGHOUT THE DAY. ONE PROJECT WAS TO REMOVE A STAIN FROM A MATTRESS. A HOME MADE CONCOCTION OF DAWN BLUE LIQUID , BAKING SODA , AND HYDROGEN PEROXIDE ACTUALLY KINDA WORKED. I LATER HIT IT AGAIN WITH A STAIN REMOVER SPRAY.  I WOULD SAY 75% WAS REMOVED. I WILL HIT IT AGAIN.

 SAD TO SAY ANOTHER FLYING SQUIRREL HAS GONE TO THE GREAT FLYING CIRCUS IN THE SKY.

 THEY SAY NEVER GO SHOPPING HUNGRY. I SHOULD OF USED THIS ADVICE. MY ELDEST AT I TRAVEL TO THE LOCAL MARKET. WE END UP BUYING WAY TOO MUCH. AT THE CHECK-OUT LINE MY KID SAYS , " DO YOU HEAR THIS SONG ? " IT WAS THE STRAY CATS SONG " STRAY CAT STRUT " WHICH WE REALLY LIKE.  WE START SINGING IT AND WE PAUSE. I ASKED THE REGISTER GIRL , " CAN YOU TURN UP THE MUSIC IN HERE ? "

 WE LEAVE AND NOTICE THE LOCAL ICE-CREAM SHOP IS OPEN. THIS STORE IS BETTER THAN DAIRY QUEEN AND THE FEMALE WORKER IN SPANDEX IS ADORABLE. SO , WE BUY DOUBLE SNICKER EARTH QUAKES.......DAMN IT.

 WE LEAVE AND DRIVE BY CAPONE'S BAR. IT IS A TUESDAY AT 5:30PM. WE DECIDE TO LEAVE OUR ICE-CREAM IN THE CAR AND GO IN FOR ONE BEER AND ORDER THEIR WINGS I HEARD WERE GOOD. FOR CLOSE TO 30 YEARS I ALWAYS WANTED TO CHECK THIS PLACE OUT. IT IS A DIVE BAR AND BIGGER THAN I THOUGHT WITH GAMES AND A POOL TABLE. LOCALS OF ALL AGES WERE THERE INCLUDING ONE GUY WHO HAD TO BE 90 YEARS OLD. HE DANCED AND EVERY THING HE SAID WAS ABOUT SEX. I LIKE THIS PLACE. WINGS WERE GOOD AND THE OWNER SAID THANK FOR STOPPING BY WHICH I THOUGHT WAS NICE. I WILL RETURN TO SHOW WHEELS.

 BACK HOME WE GET DIVERTED. ON THE WAY WE SAW A DOWNED WIRE AND A MACK TRUCK STOPPED IN FRONT OF IT. WE THOUGHT AFTER 1 HOUR IT BE CLEARED. WELP , IT WASN'T. WE USED OUR G.P.S. TO GO AROUND THE BYPASS. THERE WERE COPS AND FIRE ENGINES ALL OVER THE PLACE. IT WAS KINDA COOL BEING ON ROADS I NEVER SEEN BEFORE.

 AT HOME , I HAVE NO DINNER BUT SOME WINGS. WE SETTLE IN AND WATCH TV.

 WE TRY A TV SERIES CALLED FRIENDS FROM COLLEGE. THE FIRST SCENE A BIG GUY IS BANGING A HOT GIRL HOLDING HER UP. BELIEVE OR NOT I DID NOT LIKE THIS SERIES AT ALL.

 NEXT WE TRY KEVIN JAMES NEW NETFLIX SERIES CALLED THE CREW. IT IS ABOUT THE WORLD OF RACE DRIVERS. WE WATCHED 2 EPISODES AND I LIKED IT.

 BOOKED ANOTHER WEEK FOR OUR MOUNTAIN HOUSE AND A LONG WEEKEND TO A BARTENDER'S KID. BECAUSE I KNOW HERE FOR OVER 25 YEARS I AM ALLOWING HER 18 YEAR OLD SON AND 7 FRIENDS TO RENT OUR HOME. I HAVE NEVER RENTED TO ANYONE UNDER 20 FOR ALMOST 30 YEARS. I ACTUALLY HAD THE SON CALL ME SO I COULD FEEL HIS VIBE. OUR BARTENDER WILL DRIVE UP AND HELP CLEAN THE LAST DAY LEAVING. THIS ALSO HELPED THE DECISION. IT WAS SUPER NICE TALKING TO HER TOO.

 76ERS GET PAY BACK WIN AFTER LOSING TO TORONTO THE NIGHT BEFORE.

 I MESS AROUND ON THE COMPUTER TO END THE NIGHT WHILE MY ELDEST WATCHED BRIDGERTON.

 OFF TO BED AND SLEPT GOOD........NICE. I SWEAR BEING HERE IS DOWN RIGHT AWESOME.

  WEDNESDAY     2 - 24 - 21

 OMG.....I ATE TOO MUCH.

 START OUT EARLY POSTING A VIDEO OF A BEAUTIFUL 8 POINT BUCK CASUALLY FOLLOWING A DOE. THEY CAME RIGHT ACROSS OUR FRONT PATH AND WALKED ON TO THE LAKE. MAN.....SOMETHING ABOUT A BUCK THAT IS JUST SO MAJESTIC.

 SOMETIMES THE MANUAL DOES NOT MUCH THE PRODUCT. I BOUGHT NEW AA BATTERIES FOR OUR ALARM SYSTEM. A WARNING SYMBOL SEEMS TO SAY LOW BATTERY EVEN THOUGH IT IS PLUGGED INTO AN OUTLET. I REMOVE THE PANEL ONLY TO FIND THE BATTERIES ARE NOT EVEN CLOSE TO AA BATTERIES. I ORDER A NEW BACK UP SUPPLY SOURCE.

 BEST HELP FOR ICE DAMS IS GOOD OLE MOTHER NATURE..........WHO TECHNICALLY STARTED IT. THE VERY LARGE AND THICK ICE DAM / ICE CYCLE FELL FROM OUR 2ND FLOOR GUTTER. HALF HIT A TREE AND THE OTHER HALF HIT THE GROUND. TODAY WE REACHED ALMOST 50 DEGREES WHICH SO HELPED WITH SHOVELING ALL THE DECKS AND STEPS.

 WHERE ARE THESE DAMN FLYING SQUIRRELS COMING FROM ?!?!?!?! YOU KNOW WHAT TOTALLY SUCKS ? FINDING A DEAD FLYING SQUIRREL IN A TRAP. I ONLY HOPE IT WAS SUPER QUICK. YOU KNOW WHAT SUCKS EVEN MORE ????!!!!......FINDING A LIVE FLYING SQUIRREL IN A TRAP. OH MAN , NOW WHAT DO I DO. DAMN IT !!!!.......HIS EYES ARE SO CUTE !!!!

 FINISHED SEASON 1 OF THE CREW WITH KEVIN JAMES. I LIKED IT.

 A WONDERFUL FACE-TIME WITH EVERYONE. I HAVE TO ADMIT FACE-TIMING IS PRETTY DANG COOL. SEEING OUR YOUNGEST AT COLLEGE WAS SUPER NICE.

 SHOWER AND DRESS TO GO TO OUR FAVORITE LOCAL RESTAURANT.........CHARLIE WEAVERS. THE FOOD IS JUST DOWN RIGHT EXCELLENT. WE ATE WAY WAY TOO MUCH BUT IT WAS SO DAMN GOOD. FACE-TIMING WHEELS AND OUR YOUNGEST TO SAY HELLO TO THE WAITRESS/OWNER MIGHT OF BEEN RUBBING IT IN JUST A LITTLE.

 BACK HOME I TOTALLY CRASH. I ATE WAY TOO MUCH AND FEEL HORRIBLE WITH A HEAD ACHE. THE FOOD WAS SO GOOD AND I WAS SUCH A STUPID GLUTTON. OUR ELDEST PLAYS WITH THE PUP WHILE I WALLOW ON THE COUCH.

 WE FACE-TIME AGAIN AND WITH A FAMILY MEMBER WHICH WAS NICE.

 I HAVE 2 COFFEE DRINKS TO TRY TO WAKE UP. IT WAS A NO GO. WE WATCHED A BEST OF 2020 COMEDIANS ON NETFLIX. IT WAS GOOD AND DEFINITELY AWKWARD WITH SEX TALK STUFF WHILE MY DAUGHTER WAS SITTING 10 FEET AWAY. NIKKI GLASER IS SUPER HOT AND CRUDE. I THINK I WOULD OF LIKED IT ALOT MORE IF MY DAUGHTER WAS NOT WITH ME.

 I JUST CAN'T STAY UP. I AM TOO FULL AND IT IS ONLY 10PM.....DAMN IT. I HEAD TO BED.

 I DID HAVE A DREAM THAT ME AND DAVE CHAPPELL WERE BANGING TWO OLD LADIES. MY OLD LADY LOOKED EXACTLY LIKE THE  ACTRESS DIANNE WIEST. I WAS TOTALLY DOING HER DOGGY STYLE AND HER OLD FLAB AND MY FAT FLAB WAS FLYING EVERY WHERE......MOSTLY IN DIFFERENT DIRECTIONS. OH THE HUMANITY OF IT ALL.  PLEASE DO NOT GOOGLE HER PICTURE. IT'S EMBARRASSING. THE COOL THING WAS MY COCK WAS HUGE.......LIKE 16 INCHES HUGE. ( DOUBLE )

  THURSDAY     2 - 25 - 21

 BE FREE MY LITTLE FRIEND.....BE FREE !!

 ANOTHER DAY OF FEELING FAT. MAN I ATE TOO MUCH AND IT STILL IS SITTING WITH ME THE NEXT DAY. SO , WE ORDERED A PIZZA.

 LOADED UP ALL OLD SCHOOL LUMBER CUT WOOD IN THE VAN. I BROUGHT THE LOGS HERE AS A PRECAUTION IN CASE WE LOST POWER. I WILL BRING THEM BACK HOME FOR A FIRE PIT. WHAT IS COOL IS RENTERS LEFT A BOX OF HALF BALL FIRE STARTERS ALONG WITH 20 CANDLES. THESE WILL COME HOME TOO SINCE I DO NOT TRUST RENTERS.

 SO , I PEEK MY HEAD UP INTO THE ATTIC AND NOW THE FLYING SQUIRREL HAS BURIED ITSELF INTO THE  INSULATION. I PULL THE TRAP IT IS STUCK TO AND SEE IT IS BARELY ON IT'S LITTLE FOOT. I PLACE HIM ( OR HER ) IN A SHOE BOX AND TAKE A PICTURE TO SEND TO WHEELS AND THE KIDS. IT'S WHAT I DO.

 SO ME AND FLYING SQUIRRELY TAKE A RIDE. I PULL IN A LARGE PARKING LOT NEAR A GARAGE LIKE STRUCTURE. I PUT GLOVES ON AND USING A NEEDLE NOSE PLIERS RELEASE THE FLYING SQUIRREL'S FOOT FROM THE TRAP. YES , HE DID BITE ME. I HAD HIM UPSIDE DOWN AND DROPPED HIM INTO THE SNOW. HE SCURRIED OFF QUICKLY AND CLIMBED A TELEPHONE POLE ABOUT 2 FEET UP. I WISHED HIM WELL AND LEFT.

 STOP AT A LIQUOR STORE TO GET BRANDY FOR WHEELS ( AND A LITTLE FOR ME ) AND SOME WHITE WINE.

 BACK HOME I DO SOME ODD PROJECTS.

 I FINISH THE SERIES GODLESS. JESUS WHAT A FINALE. OVERALL , I THOUGHT IT WAS VERY GOOD.

 MY ELDEST AND I WATCH A NEW SERIES WITH TED DANSON CALLED MR. MAYOR.......LIKE HE DOESN'T HAVE ENOUGH TV SERIES. WE WATCHED 3 OF THEM WHICH ARE ONLY 20 MINUTES LONG. HOLLY HUNTER IS GOOD AND I NEVER REALIZED SHE IS UNDER 5 FOOT. HER BIO SAYS 5' 2" BUT SHE CAN BE TALLER THAN 3 FOOT.

 A FUN THING WE DID WAS USE YOU-TUBE TO WATCH MUSIC VIDEOS. I STAYED UP TO 1:30AM....THANKS TO THE COFFEE/BAILEYS/CHOCOLATE MILK CONCOCTION.

 I THINK AT LEAST 10 PEOPLE USE OUR NETFLIX ACCOUNT. TODAY WE CUT ONE PERSON OUT BECAUSE HE IS A DICK HEAD. IT'S THE GUY WHO DID NOT PAY THE AGREED PAYMENT FOR MY ELDEST HOUSE / DOG / CAR / AND MORE SITTING. I WAS SURPRISED HE ACTUALLY PAID SOME. HE KEEPS BLOCKING HER AFTER SENDING ONE TEXT. SO.........WE BLOCKED HIM FROM USING OUR NETFLIX ACCOUNT. I SHOULD OF KNOWN WHAT KIND OF PERSON HE IS BY HOW HE LIVES......IN A FILTHY DOG SHIT RIDDEN AND DOG PISS APARTMENT. IT MAKES ME SICK JUST THINKING ABOUT IT.

 OFF TO BED AND SLEPT OKAY. I HOPED THAT LITTLE FLYING SQUIRREL FOUND A WARM SHELTER AT NIGHT.

 WHEELS ATTENDS A ZOOM WINE & CHEESE PARTY HELD BY A BANK. IT WAS FOR THE BLUE BLOODS AND THE BANK SENT THE FAMILY A WINE & CHEESE BASKET SEVERAL DAYS BEFORE THE ZOOM GATHERING. THE ONLY THING MY BANK SENDS IS OVERDUE NOTICES.

 FRIDAY     2 - 26 - 21

 IT IS TOO NICE TO LEAVE.

 UP EARLY AND SLEPT OKAY AT BEST. THE DOG PUSHING ME ALL THE WAY TO THE EDGE OF THE BED IS STARTING TO GET ON MY NERVES.

 LOOKING VERY FORWARD TO SAYING GOODBYE TO FEBRUARY.

 I BEGIN THE PROCESS OF CHECK-OUT......VACUUM THE FIREPLACE OUT , CLEAN THE WOOD STOVE GLASS , VACUUM THE WHOLE HOUSE , PACK ALL TOOLS & SUPPLIES IN MUDROOM , STRAIGHTEN UP OUTSIDE , WIPE EVERYTHING DOWN , MAKE BEDS..............OH GOD I HATE CHECKING-OUT.

 MY ELDEST CLEANING UP THE NIGHT BEFORE BY PACKING BOOZE AND SNACKS ALONG WITH EMPTYING THE DISHWASHER DID HELP.

 WE BEGIN TO PACK THE VAN. WE MAKE GOOD TIME AND TALK ABOUT FUTURE THINGS.

 FACEBOOK MARKETPLACE STRIKES AGAIN.....TWICE.

 1ST - LITTLE DID I REALIZE I USED THIS SAME GUY BEFORE. THIS PRODUCT WAS NEW SHUTTERS WITH PLASTIC PLUGS. I GOT 2 AS A TEST MODE. MOST LIKELY INSTALL THEM IN THE BACK TO SEE HOW THEY LOOK.

 2ND - WE ARRIVE HOME AND WHEELS ASKS ME TO LOOK FOR A COUCH SINCE OUR DOG TORE UP OURS. IT IS A SHAME BECAUSE IT IS A GOOD LEATHER SOFA. ANYWAY , I FIND A LARGE COTTON FABRIC COUCH WITH CUSHIONS IN EXCELLENT SHAPE. MY ELDEST AND WHEELS RIDE TO HAVERTOWN WITH ME AND PICK IT UP USING OUR TRAILER WHICH I ABSOLUTELY LOVE AND CAN'T BELIEVE I DID NOT HAVE A TRAILER 10 YEARS AGO. WE TIMED IT PREFECT. THE WIFE ( PIECE OF ASS ) WAS HOME AND WE STARTED PREPPING TO LOAD IT IN THE TRAILER. THE HUSBAND ( PIECE OF ASS ) COMES HOME AND HELPS ME. WE WERE THERE 10 MINUTES. IT WAS FUNNY AS ALL OF US SAT ON THE COUCH TO TEST IT AND I ASKED FOR A GLASS OF WINE AND IF THE WIFE COULD PUT A GOOD MOVIE ON. SHE LAUGHED AND PROBABLY THOUGHT , " GOD I HOPE HE DOESN'T SEE OUR PIZZA ON THE KITCHEN TABLE. "

 WE ARRIVE HOME AND A BLOCK AWAY WE SEE A FRIEND'S BOYFRIEND. WE ASK HIM TO HELP US LOAD THE COUCH INSIDE. HE SAYS , " ABSOLUTELY ".  HE NEVER SHOWS AND HIS GIRLFRIEND ( WHO WE TREAT LIKE A DAUGHTER ) HELPS US AND SHE IS SO FUN JUST TO BE WITH.

 WE GET THE COUCH INSIDE AND IT LOOKS REALLY GOOD. IT IS PET AND SMOKE FREE AND ONLY 2 YEARS OLD. PLUS I GET TO IMAGINE THE SMOKE SHOW WIFE'S ASS WAS ON IT FOR 2 YEARS.....AND THE HUSBANDS.

 I DISCONNECT THE TRAILER AND STORE IT IN THE GARAGE. MAN I LOVE THIS TRAILER.

 WHEELS WASHES OUR ELDEST HAIR.

 WE SETTLE IN TO WATCH TV AND HAVE  LIBATION OR TWO. WE WATCH AN EPISODE OF FARGO. IT WAS GOOD.

 ELDEST FRIENDS COME OVER AGAIN. ABOUT 5 OF THEM ALONG WITH THE GUY WHO WAS GOING TO HELP US MOVING THE COUCH. HE PURCHASED A MOTORCYCLE AND I CHECKED IT OUT.

 WHEELS CONTACTS NURSING FRIENDS TO HELP OUT OUR " DAUGHTER " FOR AN OBSERVATION ONLY 10 HOUR INTERNSHIP.

 MY FILTER FOR MY CPAP MACHINE CAME IN. IT WORKS PERFECTLY. THIS NEW MACHINE IS WAY BETTER THAN MY OLD ONE......AFTER I BOUGHT 2 PARTS FOR IT.

  SATURDAY      2 - 27 - 21

 2 REALLY GOOD LIVE STREAM PERFORMANCES TODAY BY BILL KOPP AND BAD HOMBRES. OMG.........ALMOST BROUGHT ME TO TEARS AGAIN. IT'S A WEIRD FEELING THAT BANDS SHOW SO MUCH LOVE AND SUPPORT TO DO STREAMS FOR THE NAIL. IT IS LITERALLY HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE SHOWING SUPPORT FOR OUR LITTLE DIVE BAR. IT JUST BOGGLES MY MIND.

 INVESTOR WHO LIKE ME TO RUN THE NAIL HAS WITHDRAWN FROM THE PICTURE SAYING " IT IS NOT THE RIGHT TIME ". GEE.......NO SHIT. THE NAIL IS OFFICIALLY 100% OFF THE MARKET.

 DROVE MY NEPHEW TO A SOCCER COMPLEX. GOOD GOD THERE WERE A SHIT LOAD OF PEOPLE AND MAYBE 10 FIELDS. I HAD A REALLY NICE TIME JUST TALKING TO MY YOUNG NEPHEW. WHEN DID HE GET SO MATURE ?

 SPRAYED OUR " NEW " COUCH DOWN WITH DISINFECTANT AND ODOR REMOVER. I PROBABLY DID NOT HAVE TO BUT FIGURED I WOULD. AT 6AM I WAS DOING THIS. I REALLY LIKE THIS COUCH.

  AT THE NAIL I MEET OUR DOORMAN TO PICK UP HIS " SAVE THE NAIL " TEE SHIRTS. WE CHILLED FOR ABOUT 3 HOURS. IT WAS NICE.

 KINDA MISSING THE POCONOS AND I WAS JUST THERE FOR A WEEK.

 I TEXT A PICTURE TO MY YOUNGEST.  IT IS A PICTURE OF OUR HULU ACCOUNT'S HOME PAGE. A FRIEND OF HER'S ADDED AN ACCOUNT AND NAMED IT " NICOLE'S FREELOADER FRIEND ". IT MAKES ME GIGGLE EVERY TIME I SEE IT. SHE TEXTS ME A " LOL " AND SAYS THEY ARE WATCHING " PEAKY BLINDERS ".  EVERY TIME SHE TELLS ME SHE IS WATCHING THIS SHOW I YELL BACK LOUDLY " PEAKY F'N BLINDERS !!!! "

  ELDEST INVITES ME AND WHEELS TO LOCAL PUB. WE DECLINE.

 OH THE GUY I CRADLED AT THIS PUB AND GOT COVID.....DIED 3 DAYS AGO.

 WE CHILL WITH THE PUP AND WATCH 2 EPISODES OF FARGO. BOTH WERE GOOD. WHEN A CRAZY NURSE GIVES A HAND JOB TO AN ITALIAN MAFIA BOSS WHILE SINGING GOD BLESS AMERICA..........THAT'S GOOD WRITING.

 76ERS......BLOW.

 FLYERS WITH A NICE SHUT-OUT WIN.

 OFF TO BED ONLY TO WAKE UP FOR PEEING AND WALKING THE MOANING DOG........DAMN IT.

  SUNDAY   2 - 28 - 21

 GOOD RIDDEN FEBRUARY.....AND WHERE DID ALL THIS RAIN COME FROM ?

 FACEBOOK MARKETPLACE STRIKES AGAIN.....TWICE.  WHEELS RIDES WITH ME AND IT IS SO HELPFUL. MAN , WAS THIS A ROAD TRIP. I ENJOYED IT THOUGH.

 - FIRST STOP OFF 422 FOR 2 LIFT GATE GARAGE REMOTES. WE HAVE 2 IN OUR HOUSE BUT IT BE NICE TO HAVE THEM IN THE CARS ALSO. SO , I PICKED THEM UP. AN ASIAN GIRL WHO GAVE THEM TO ME WAS EASY ON EYES....AND VERY POLITE. I TOLD WHEELS SHE INVITED ME IN BUT I REPLIED , " SORRY , MY WIFE IS WAITING IN THE CAR. " HOT ASIAN WOMAN REPLIED , " NO HAPPY ENDING FOR YOU . "

 - IN THE HARD RAIN WE DRIVE. NEXT , WE STOP AT A FRIENDS ITALIAN DELI FOR SANDWICHES.

 - WE STOP IN BROOMALL TO PICK UP PAPERWORK MY COUSIN GOT FOR MY PARENTS COVID SHOTS. I WILL DRIVE THEM BACK AND FORTH TOMORROW.

 - WE STOP IN MEDIA TO WAVE HELLO TO MY COUSIN WHO JUST HAD A BABY.

 - IN MEDIA STILL I PICK UP 7 WOOD BED RISERS IN PERFECT SHAPE. THESE NICE ONES WILL REPLACE THE ONES I MADE OUT OF 2 X 4'S.

 - STOP AT MY PARENTS HOUSE TO DROP OFF VACCINATION PAPER WORK.

 - WHEELS DROPS ME OFF AT THE NAIL AND SHE ROLLS HOME.

 I PREP WITH THE BAND AND MAN DID THEY HAVE A SHIT LOAD OF STUFF TO SET UP.  A 6 PIECE BAND IS DEFINITELY A SQUEEZE ON OUR STAGE. BUT IT WORKED OUT AND THEY PLAYED FUN 80'S SONGS. OVER 300 VIEWS.

 BACK HOME AND WE HAVE SOME DINNER. THE USUAL FANTASTIC HOAGIES WERE OKAY BECAUSE I HAD TO MICROWAVE THEM.

 A TALK WITH OUR ELDEST. WE ARE NOT ON THE SAME PAGE RIGHT NOW BUT THINGS LOOK LIKE THEY WILL BE........WE HOPE. I WAS NOT IN THE BEST MOOD T6O SAY THE LEAST.

 FLYERS WITH ANOTHER SHUT-OUT WIN OVER BUFFALO.

  AROUND 8PM WE SETTLE IN TO WATCH TV AND OUR ELDEST SAYS THERE IS ALOT OF WATER IN THE BASEMENT......SON OF A BITCH.

 DOWN THE BASEMENT WE GO. ALL THIS RAIN AND I DID NOT EVEN THINK COMBINED WITH MELTING SNOW OUR BASEMENT WOULD GET SLAMMED. WE USE A WET/DRY VAC TO SUCK UP THE WATER AND 2 LARGE PLASTIC BINS TO PLACE WET CARPET TILES IN. I DECIDE I MUST INSTALL ANOTHER SUMP PUMP IN THE BASEMENT. THIS WOULD BE 3 TOTAL.  ONE HOUR LATER WE GO BACK UPSTAIRS.....I NEED BOOZE.

 WE SETTLE IN AND WATCH AN EPISODE OF FARGO. IT WAS GOOD.

 OFF TO BED WITH THE PUP AND I DREAM MY TRAILER HITCH FELL APART. I WAS TRYING TO TOTALLY MACGYVER IT BUT TO NO AVAIL.

 UP AT 3:30AM I LET THE PUP OUT. I DECIDE TO STAY UP. I TEXT A FAMILY MEMBER I CAN'T HELP HIM ON A JOB IN NEW JERSEY UNLESS I'M REALLY NEEDED. I GOT SOME THINGS I MUST TAKE CARE OF. I FEEL BAD BECAUSE I EVEN SET-UP A HOUSE TO CRASH AT FOR A COUPLE OF NIGHTS.

 BACK TO BED AT 6AM. I HAVE TO GET AT LEAST ONE MORE HOUR SLEEP.

 MONDAY     3 - 1 - 21

 MESSED AROUND WITH PROGRAMMING 2 GARAGE REMOTES. I GOT THEM TO WORK BY TAKING CALCULATOR BATTERIES OUT AND USING THEM. UNFORTUNATELY , EVERY ONE OF THE 6 CALCULATOR BATTERIES I REMOVED ONLY ONE WORKED. I GOT THE REMOTES TO WORK BUT THEY ARE VERY LOW ON BATTERY. IT WOULD OF BEEN NICE OF THAT ASIAN LADY TO TELL ME SHE REMOVED THE BATTERIES FROM THE GARAGE REMOTES I GOT FROM HER.
