     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

 AND FEBRUARY IS GONE. ANOTHER COLD DAY BUT I HEAR TEMPS WILL RISE. MOST OF THE SNOW SHOULD BE GONE.

 SPENT TIME CUTTING A LARGE LEATHER SOFA IN HALF.....IN OUR KITCHEN. THIS IS ALWAYS FUN USING A SAW SALL AND BOLT CUTTER.

 SET UP WHEELS IN OUR YOUNGEST BEDROOM FOR HER " NEW " OFFICE AREA. SHOULD BE ALOT BETTER AND QUIETER.

 TOOK MY PARENTS TO GET COVID VACCINATIONS. IT IS RIGHT IN OUR AREA. THEY WERE VERY EFFICIENT WITH MOVING HOARDS OF PEOPLE.....MAYBE NOT SO MUCH WITH PARKING.

 SHOULDER HURTS FOR ALMOST 2 MONTHS NOW. MAN , IT IS ALWAYS SOMETHING.

 CONSOLIDATED TRASH FOR PICKUP AT OUR SIDEWALK. THIS WAS FUN.

 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.

 IS IT ME OR COLD WEATHER BLOWS ?

 SETTLE IN AND WATCH THE SEASON FINALE OF YOUR HONOR. IT WAS PREDICTABLE BUT OKAY TO GOOD AT BEST.

 SO ANYONE TRYING TO WATCH SHAMELESS ? SHOWTIME IS SPREADING EACH EPISODE OUT BY 3 WEEKS OR MORE BECAUSE IT IS THE LAST SEASON. THEY WANT TO MILK THE ALL TIME HIGHEST RATED SHOW BECAUSE ONCE IT'S DONE.....SO IS SHOWTIME. THEY HAVE NOT HAD A NEW EPISODE IN OVER 4 WEEKS. PEOPLE ARE NOT HAPPY ABOUT IT. WE WATCHED AN EPISODE TONIGHT AND A SPECIAL HIGHLIGHT REEL / SCROOGE-ISH DOCUMENTARY ON FRANK WHICH WAS OKAY.

 FIXED A DOG LEASH RUNNER THAT SOMETIMES SLIPS OFF THE PUP WHILE SHE WAS ON IT.

 76ERS WITH A NICE WIN.

 I PLAY ONE GAME OF INTERNET POKER. THE BUY-IN IS A HALF MILLION DOLLARS. I WON AND WENT TO SLEEP THINKING WHAT TO SO WITH THE 3.5 MILLION DOLLAR PRIZE MONEY.

  TUESDAY     3 - 2 - 21

 IT'S 3AM......NICE.

 WHEN YOU ENTER A STREET THAT WAS FORMERLY AN ESTATE THAT IS PRETTY DAMN COOL.

 I USED A DIFFERENT ACCOUNT NAME FOR FACEBOOK AND CONTACTED THE GUY WHO WAS OFFERING THE SUMP PUMP FOR FREE WHO NOW WANTS $40. HE DID NOT KNOW IT WAS ME AGAIN.

 LET THE RUNNING BEGIN :

 - STOP BY A BEAUTIFUL NEIGHBOR THAT WAS FORMERLY A 1,000 ACRE ESTATE. WHAT I FOUND COOL WAS ALMOST EVERY HOME WAS DIFFERENT.....AND BIG. FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE STRUCK AGAIN AS I GOT A REALLY COOL IPOD/CELL PHONE SPEAKER PLAYER. THE YOUNG WOMAN WAS VERY COOL AND GREETED ME AS MOVERS TOOK FURNITURE OUT OF HER HOME. SHE WAS VERY POLITE. WHEN I GOT HOME OUR ELDEST TESTED IT AND IT IS LOUD. WE PLAYED LOW RIDER BY WAR.

 - STOP AT THE BANK WHERE THE POLICE COULD OF BEEN CALLED ON ME. MAN , I FELT LIKE A JACK ASS AGAIN AT THE BANK. I TRIED TO DEPOSIT TWO 100 DOLLAR BILLS THAT TOTALLY LOOKED TOTALLY FAKE WITH BIG GIGANTIC LETTERS THAT WROTE " COPY COPY ". I NEVER LOOKED IN THE ENVELOPE.

 - NEXT STOP WAS A COOL NEIGHBORHOOD IN NARBERTH. I FELT BAD FOR THE OWNER WHO HAD TO SHOVEL HIS CIRCLE DRIVEWAY ON A MAJOR HILL. I PICKED UP A BRAND NEW FOLDING TABLE. I THOUGHT OF THIS WHEN WE WERE USING MY LAPTOP WHEN PLAYING SHOWTIME ON THE BIG TV. THE LAPTOP WAS ON A BAR STOOL.

 - STOP AT THE LIQUOR STORE TO PICK UP A SMALL ORDER. I LIKE TUESDAYS BECAUSE I KNOW THE MANAGER.

 - STOP AT D.M.I. HOME SUPPLY TO PICK UP BATTERIES FOR THE GARAGE REMOTES. I CALLED EARLIER TO SEE IF THEY HAD THEM IN STOCK....WHICH THEY DID.

 - STOP AT THE NAIL AND UNLOAD OUR OLD LEATHER COUCH I CUT IN HALF. WHAT TOTALLY SUCKED IS THE STUFFING IN THE CUSHIONS EXPLODED AND STUCK TO THE VAN'S CLOTH FLOOR LIKE VELCRO. I TRIED 2 BROOMS AND VACUUM AND ONLY GOT UP ABOUT 80%.

 OH....I HAVE THE PUP WITH ME THE WHOLE TIME.

 IN THE NAIL I UNLOAD AND START PROJECTS.

 - I CHANGE MARQUEE SIGN AND PICK UP CIGARETTE BUTTS.

 - I FIX THE MONITORS. THEY DID NOT WORK AT ALL LAST STREAM SHOW. IT ENDS UP THE BAND BEFORE MOVED SOME LEVELS TURNING OFF OUR AMPLIFIER THUS TURNING OFF ALL 4 FLOOR MONITORS.

 - CALL COMCAST BECAUSE OUR 2 CREDIT CARD MACHINES ARE NOT WORKING EFFICIENTLY. THE FIRST INDIAN LADY TELLS ME I HAVE TO EXCHANGE MY MODEM BECAUSE I HAVE AN OLDER MODEL. I TELL HER IT CAN NOT BE OLDER THAN 2 YEARS. SHE INSISTS IT IS THE PROBLEM AND I DID NOT GIVE HER A MODEL NUMBER. I CAN NOT HAVE A SERVICE CALL BECAUSE IT WOULD COST $70 BUT SHE TELLS ME IT IS SUPER EASY TO SWITCH OUT THE MODEM.....JUST UNPLUG WIRES AND RE-PLUG THEM....SUPER EASY. SHE GIVES ME AN ADDRESS AND PHONE NUMBER IN HAVERTOWN FOR AN XFINITY STORE.

 I RE-CALL COMCAST AND TALK TO JEANETTE ......AN AMERICAN. SHE TELLS ME MY MODEM IS ONLY 1 YEAR OLD AND THAT IT DEFINITELY DOES NOT NEED TO BE REPLACED. ALSO , I COULD HAVE A TECHNICIAN STOP BY FOR FREE AND IT DOES REQUIRE SOME ASSISTANCE TO CHANGE OVER. SHE RECOMMENDS RE-BOOTING THE MODEM. I UNPLUG IT FOR 2 MINUTES WHILE SHE RUNS A TEST SIGNAL. I REBOOT THE SYSTEM BUT WILL RETURN ANOTHER DAY SINCE IT MAY TAKE UP TO 30 MINUTES TO ACQUIRE A NETWORK. I WASTED 1 HOUR ON THE PHONE.

 - GET SOME OTHER THINGS DONE AND CHASE THE PUP AROUND THE POOL TABLES.

 BACK HOME WHEELS MAKES ANOTHER VERY GOOD HEALTHY MEAL.

 CALL MY PARENTS AND AUNT TO CHECK ON THEM.

 FLYERS GET TOTALLY OUTPLAYED AND LOSE.

 WATCH ANOTHER FARGO EPISODE. IT WAS GOOD.

  WHEELS WATCH A REALITY SHOW AND I HEAD TO MY BEDROOM AT 9PM. I CAN NOT GO TO BED THIS EARLY.

 I GET UP AT 3AM AND WATCH VIDEOS OF CELEBRITIES SURPRISING THEIR FANS. I DO THIS FOR 2 HOURS.

 BEGIN WRITING BLOG AND NOTICE OUR ELDEST IS NOT HOME. IT IS 5:30AM.

 PICK UP OUR ELDEST AT AN AFTER HOUR BAR AT 5:45AM.

 BACK HOME I NEED TO FALL ASLEEP JUST ONE TIME. OFF TO BED AGAIN AT 6:10AM.........NICE.

  WEDNESDAY     3 - 3 - 21

    FACETIME DAY !!

 I AM VERY PROUD OF OUR ELDEST STEPPING UP TO DO A PRE-INTERVIEW FOR A TEACHING JOB. TOMORROW WILL BE THE ACTUAL VIRTUAL JOB INTERVIEW. I HOPE IT GOES WELL AND WISHING THE BEST. I KNOW IT WAS TOUGH TO DO WHICH I HOPE WILL BE REWARDING IN THE FUTURE. WE WILL SEE.

 FOUND AN OLD IPOD AND CHARGED IT. NOW OUR " NEW " SPEAKER SYSTEM PLAYS CELL PHONES AND IPODS.....PRETTY COOL.

 I MOVED 50 CARPET TILES OUT TO OUR DRIVEWAY TO DRY OUT. THIS WAS FUN.

 UNLOADED 50 PIECES OF CHOPPED FIRE WOOD TO OUR BACK YARD. I REMOVED A TARP FROM THE OLDER WOOD TO AIR OUT. LATER I COVERED EVERYTHING.

 SPENT ABOUT AN HOUR ORGANIZING THE GARAGE. THIS WAS NEEDED.

 APPLIED FOR UNEMPLOYMENT AGAIN.

 TALKED TO OUR ACCOUNTANT FOR ABOUT 20 MINUTES.

 CANCELLED A 30 DAY SUBSCRIPTION FOR SHOWTIME SINCE THEY ARE BEING CHEAP WITH AIRING SHAMELESS EPISODES.

 I HAVE NBC SPORTS APP ON MY PHONE. IT IS VERY COOL TO WATCH PHILLY TEAMS VIA CELL PHONE. HOLY CRAP ANYONE SEE THAT 76ERS GAMES ? BIGGEST WIN OF THE YEAR OVER THE UTAH JAZZ WHO ARE THE BEST TEAM IN THE NBA.

 LOAD 50 TOOLS BY THE TOP OF OUR OUTDOOR STEPS. ANY TIME I WALKED UP VIA THE BASEMENT STEPS WITH CARPET TILES I WALKED DOWN WITH TOOLS. WHY ? I BEGAN DIGGING OUT A HOLE FOR A SUMP PUMP. THIS IS NOT FUN AT ALL. AFTER AN HOUR OF DIGGING MY HANDS HURT AND MY KNEES AND MY ASS.

 FACETIME WITH OUR YOUNGEST AT COLLEGE. IT IS SO DAMN COOL AND FUN. I DID NOTICE WHEN I AM QUIET PRETTY MUCH THE CONVERSATION ENDS. MY YOUNGEST PRANKED ME BY PRETENDING HER SCREEN FROZE. I LIKE WHEN OUR KIDS LAUGH. WE FACETIMED A 2ND TIME LATER.

 WITH RISK THERE IS REWARD AS I TOLD MY ELDEST. FOR STEPPING UP AND MAKING A PHONE CALL ABOUT A TEACHING JOB WE TOOK HER OUT TO BERTUCCI'S. OF COURSE , HER MEAL HAD A HAIR IN IT. IT WAS REPLACED BUT  WE WERE STILL CHARGED. THE ONLY THING WE DID NOT LIKE......$16 FOR A GLASS OF WINE. WE DID KNOW THE WAITRESS OF OVER 40 YEARS. FOOD WAS ABOVE OKAY TO GOOD. $16 FOR A GLASS OF WINE A 1/3 FILLED ??!!!

 TALKED TO SEVERAL BROTHERS AND FAMILY TODAY JUST TO CHECK IN.

 BACK HOME WE SETTLE IN AND WATCH 2 EPISODES OF FARGO.....BOTH WERE GOOD.

 WATCHED A NEW EPISODE OF THE WALKING DEAD. IT WAS OKAY TO GOOD.

 OFF TO BED WITH THE PUP UPSTAIRS WITH OUR ELDEST. THIS GIVES ME SOME TIME ALONE WHICH IS NICE BUT I HAVE TO ADMIT I LIKE WHEN THE PUP JOINS ME. I FORCED MYSELF TO STAY UP PAST 11PM. OF COURSE I AWOKE 50 TIMES DURING THE NIGHT. I TURNED ON SPORTS RADIO AT LEAST 5 TIMES.

 WHEELS AND I ARE AT A PARTY AND WE SEE AN OLD SOFTBALL / NAIL FRIEND NAMED LYNN. SHE PLAYED SHORTSTOP WAS VERY GOOD WITH A CANNON OF AN ARM. PLUS....SHE WAS ADORABLE. WE SAY HELLO AND SHE IS COMPLETELY SAD. SHE IS ALMOST CRYING AND TOLD US SHE MADE A HUGE MISTAKE. I NEVER INQUIRED WHAT BUT WE FIGURED IT WAS SERIOUS. SHE LOOKS EXCELLENT SINCE WE HAVE NOT SEEN HER IN 20 YEARS. I ASK HER IF WHEELS AND I CAN TAKE HER AWAY FROM THIS CROWDED PARTY TO A QUIETER PLACE LIKE A RESTAURANT. SHE AGREES AND TELLS HER 2 KIDS SHE WILL BE BACK. ONE KID HAS DOUBLE TEETH LIKE THE ALIEN IN THE MOVIE........" ALIEN ". HE TRIES TO BITE ME BUT I PUSH HIM AWAY. INSTEAD , HE BITES ANOTHER KID.

 CONTINUED - AT A BURGER JOINT WE ORDER SOME FOOD. LYNN IS DEPRESSED AND STILL ALMOST IN TEARS. ONE ORDER COMES AND IT IS A LARGE BURGER SITTING ON TOP OF HUGE EXTRAS LIKE OTHER MEAT , CHEESE , ONIONS , AND MORE ALONG WITH THE BUN IS JUST TOO DAMN BIG. MY COUSIN " J " WALKS UP AND I ASK HIM IF HE LIKE TO SPLIT IT. I CUT IT IN HALF AND SIT BACK DOWN WITH WHEELS AND LYNN. WE QUIETLY EAT WITH LIMITED CONVERSATION. I FEEL BAD FOR HER BUT DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY.

  THURSDAY     3 - 4 - 21

 FACEBOOK ACCOUNT WENT PRIVATE SOME HOW. I TEXT MY ELDEST TO FIX IT AT 4AM. YEP........I AM JUST GETTING UP AND SHE IS JUST GETTING READY FOR BED.

 ELDEST HAS ZOOM JOB INTERVIEW FOR A TEACHING JOB.  HOPING THE BEST FOR THE KID.

 FACEBOOK MARKETPLACE STRIKES AGAIN. THIS TIME A VACUUM CASE AND FILTER. THEY ARE $40 PLUS SHIPPING FOR THIS TINY PART. I WAS PISSED SO I SEARCHED HERE.....AND FOUND IT. THE NICE THING WAS MY ELDEST AND THE PUP TOOK THE RIDE WITH ME.

 NEXT WE STOP IN CENTER CITY TO PICK UP OUR YOUNGEST. ALL OF US GO TO THE DOG PARK AT SCHUYLKILL RIVER PARK........IT WAS HILARIOUS. EASILY 40 DOGS RUNNING AND JUMPING AND PLAYING. IT REALY IS A LITTLE SHOW. ALSO THE AREA IS VERY COOL.

 ROLL HOME AND THE KIDS AND WHEELS HELP ME GATHER THE CARPET TILES LAYING IN THE DRIVEWAY. I BRING THEM DOWN THE BASEMENT AND SIT THE BINS OF TILES NEXT TO A HEATER.

 I WORK ON THE SUMP PUMP HOLE MORE. I USED A POST HOLE DIGGER TO GET THE RIGHT DEPTH. I MACGYVER A SMALL TRASH CAN INTO THE HOLE BY CUTTING OFF THE HANDLES WITH A SAW SALL. I APPLY QUIKRETE AROUND THE EDGES TO SEAL IT IN.  I PLACE A FAN ON IT TO DRY AND SPRAY WATER ON THE QUIKRETE 3 MORE TIMES DURING THE DAY AND NIGHT.  THIS IS ABOUT 90% OF THE JOB. I WILL DO EXTRA LIKE CHANNEL ROWS IN THE CEMENT FLOOR TO THE BUCKET. ANY MORE WATER COMING IN WILL BE QUICKLY INVITED RIGHT OUT.

 THREE OF US ROLL TO GET GAS , STOP AT THE NAIL , AND VISIT A FAMILY MEMBER'S HOUSE TO DROP OFF A BIRTHDAY GIFT. IN  A 2ND CAR OUR ELDEST MEETS US AT MY PARENTS HOUSE FOR A NICE ITALIAN DINNER OF GNOCCHI'S , SAUSEEGEE & PEPPERS , SPLIT PEAS & MUSHROOMS , GARLIC BREAD , LIPTON ICED TEA , AND WHITE WINE.

  WE SURPRISE MY PARENTS BY HAVING OUR YOUNGEST KNOCK ON THE FRONT DOOR PRETENDING TO SELL SOMETHING. WE HEAR SURPRISE & LAUGHTER AS MY PARENTS ANSWERED THE DOOR. OUR YOUNGEST ALSO SURPRISED MY PARENTS WITH A LASER PRINT OF ONE OF HER ART WORKS.

 A GOOD MEAL AND I TELL EVERYONE THE PENGUINS SCORED 3 GOALS IN 71 SECONDS. FLYERS ARE DOWN 3 - 0 IN THE BEGINNING OF THE 1ST PERIOD.......BLOW.

 WHEELS AND I ROLL WHILE OUR ELDEST TAKES OUR YOUNGEST BACK TO CENTER CITY.

 I HAVE A BAD BURN MARK ON MY RIGHT HAND AND HAVE NO IDEA HOW I GOT IT.

 WHEELS AND I WATCH AN EPISODE OF FARGO. IT WAS VERY GOOD. WE ALSO SEE FOR THE 5TH TIME SOMEONE IS USING OUR HULU ACCOUNT. WE WILL CHANGE THE PASSWORD TOMORROW.

 ELDEST HEADS TO LOCAL PUB AND THAN BRINGS FRIEND BACK TO OUR HOUSE. I DID WARN HER OUR BASEMENT HAS A SHIT LOAD OF TOOLS AND A LARGE PILE OF DIRT.

 ON MY CELL PHONE I WATCH THE FLYERS STORM BACK WITH A HUGE WIN BY SCORING 4 STRAIGHT GOALS AND BLANKING THE PENGUINS AFTER THEY SCORED 3 GOALS. FLYERS WIN 4 - 3. I LOVED WATCHING THE VIDEO HIGHLIGHT RE-PLAY ( AT 5:30AM ). WHY ? THE PITTSBURGH ANNOUNCERS WERE SO EXCITED AND SCREAMING WHEN THE PENGUINS SCORED 3 GOALS IN 71 SECONDS. THAN.......IT WAS ALL FLYERS AND BOY DID THEIR VOICES GO MONOTONE.

 OFF TO BED AND SLEPT LIKE ASS. WELP , IT IS 5:45AM AND I HAVE TO FALL ASLEEP ONE MORE TIME LIKE YESTERDAY.

   FRIDAY    3 - 5 - 21

  SOME VERY WELL DESERVED GOOD NEWS.............

 TO THE BASEMENT.....TWICE. I SPENT OVER 4 HOURS TOTAL TODAY FINISHING AND INSTALLING A SUMP PUMP DITCH , CARRYING OUT A SHITLOAD OF DIRT , PILING THAT DIRT ALONG THE BACK OF OUR GARAGE , JACK HAMMERING SEEP CHISEL LINES TO THE HOLE ,  RE-LAYING THE CARPET TILES , AND CLEANING UP. THE GOOD THING I USED OUR " NEW " IPOD PLAYER WITH OVER 3,000 SONGS.

 MY BROTHER POSTED A FACEBOOK PICTURE OF MY PARENTS AND ANNOUNCED THEM GETTING THEIR FIRST VACCINE SHOT. OVER 100 FAMILY MEMBERS RESPONDED WITH CONGRATULATIONS. ONE PERSON CALLED HIM " CHIP " SO MY BROTHER COMMENTED , " HOW DO YOU KNOW MY DAD ? " A WONDERFUL STORY FOLLOWED AND I CALLED MY 92 YEAR FATHER TO TELL HIM. HE REMEMBERED THE PERSON AND ALL HE HAD TO SAY. I LIKE GETTING OUR ELDERLY TO REMEMBER THINGS AND STIR THE BRAIN A BIT................ALWAYS HAVE. HE WAS SO HAPPY TO HEAR THIS STORY AND ADDED MORE WHEN I TALKED TO HIM.

 TOOK A RIDE TO THE NAIL WITH THE PUP TO ADD TO THE MARQUEE SIGN , TRY TO FIX A LIGHT , AND CLEAN A LITTLE. I ALSO CHASED THE PUP AROUND WHICH IS JUST TOO FUNNY.

 OH , ARRIVE AT THE NAIL TO TRASH THE REMAINING HALF OF A SOFA I TOOK APART. WELL , OUR DUMPSTER WAS ABSOLUTELY PACKED AND OVER FLOWING. I TEXT MY NEIGHBOR AND IT WAS HIS TENANT WHO DOES LANDSCAPING. I TOLD THIS GUY 2 YEARS NOT TO USE THE DUMPSTER OR AT THE VERY VERY LEAST JUST A COUPLE OF BAGS. I ASKED OUR NEIGHBOR TO TELL HIM TO REMOVE 12-14 BAGS TO MAKE ROOM. HE SAID HE WOULD AND THE TENANT APOLOGIZED.

 CHANGED OUR HULU ACCOUNT. SOMEONE IS WATCHING FARGO FASTER THAN WHEELS AND I.

 ORDERED PRIMO HOAGIES FOR A NICE CELEBRATION.

 AN ELDEST FRIEND / BARTENDER STOPS OVER. I LOVE WHEN SHE STOPS BY. SHE IS SO GOOD FOR OUR ELDEST......ALWAYS HAPPY , POSITIVE , BRIGHT FUTURE , ADORABLE , AND MORE. WE WATCH MUSIC VIDEOS FOR OVER AN HOUR. THE GIRLS WERE FUN AS THEY DANCED AND SANG.

 WHEELS AND I FINISH SEASON 4 OF FARGO. IT WAS GOOD.

 60 DEGREES NEXT WEEK ? IT IS SO WELCOMED.

 WHEELS :

 - SHE GETS SUPER NERVOUS ONCE A YEAR WITH HER ANNUAL WORK REVIEW.

 - SHE ALWAYS SLEEPS HORRIBLE THE NIGHT BEFORE.

 - IN 40 YEARS WHEELS NEVER GETS A BAD REVIEW , BUT SHE ALWAYS IS NERVOUS.

 - WELP , SHE KEPT THE STREAK OF GOOD TO EXCELLENT REVIEWS AS SHE WAS GIVEN A PAY RAISE , BONUS CHECK , AND AN UPGRADED TITLE CHANGE.

 THIS IS A BIG DEAL AND OUR FAMILY WAS SO HAPPY FOR HER. SHE DESERVES IT BECAUSE SHE HAS BEEN PUTTING IN EXTRA HOURS AND THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE WORKING EVERY SATURDAY AND SUNDAY TOO.

 THIS IS WHY WE ASKED WHEELS TO PICK WHAT SHE WANTED FOR DINNER........PRIMO'S.

 SATURDAY     3 - 6 - 21

 MAYBE I SHOULDA STAYED HOME.......ABSOLUTELY SHIT SHOW AFTER HAVING A FUN DAY & NIGHT. IT REALLY IS HOW PEOPLE CAN GET BUSTED , HURT SOMEONE , OR EVEN DIE. I WAS NOT A HAPPY CAMPER. IT WILL BE THE LAST STORY.

 START DAY SPRAYING THE BASEMENT WITH AN ODOR AND STAIN REMOVER. NOT 8 HOURS LATER 3 WHITE CLAWS WILL BE SPILLED ON IT.

  TO THE NAIL FOR A WONDERFUL STREAM SHOW BY WHISKEY DRIPPIN'. IT WAS AS BOUT AS PERFECT A SHOW COULD GO.

 DUMPSTER IS STILL PACKED. THE NEIGHBOR NEVER CAME BACK TO TAKE SOME BAGS OUT OF IT.

 WALK-IN FRIDGE RUNS INTO TROUBLE AGAIN. OUR TECH STOPS BY FOR ABOUT 45 MINUTES. THIS WILL BE A COSTLY FIX.

 FLYERS LOSE A HEART BREAKER.

 BACK HOME WE ORDER PIZZA AND WATCH COMING TO AMERICA. OF COURSE IT IS A CLASSIC AND WE WATCHED IT BECAUSE OUR ELDEST NEVER SEEN IT BEFORE.

 NEXT , WE WATCH COMING 2 AMERICA. YOU HAVE TO HAVE THE RIGHT MINDSET AND NOT EXPECT TOO MUCH. OVERALL IT WAS OKAY AND A FUN THROW BACK TO SOME CRAZY CHARACTERS.  YES , THERE WERE SCENES COMPLETELY STUPID AND WRITING JUST THE SAME BUT IT HAD ITS MOMENTS OF BEING ENTERTAINING AND HEART WARMING.........NOT VERY MANY MOMENTS BUT SOME. THE MAIN REASON TO WATCH WAS TO SEE WHO RETURNED.

 A GOOD DAY TURNED INTO A REALLY FUN NIGHT BEFORE GETTING DANGEROUS AND FRUSTRATING.

 OUR ELDEST AND HER FRIEND BEG US TO WALK UP THE STREET TO A LOCAL PUB. WHEELS AND I WALK UP AND FOOT THE ENTIRE BILL OF 7 PEOPLE. A GREAT SURPRISE IS " HOLLYWOOD " WHO IS ALWAYS FUN. I HAD ANOTHER SMALL SURPRISE AS A FORMER BARTENDER SAID HE WAS GOING TO STOP BY. I DID NOT KNOW HE WAS DRINKING ALL DAY AND THIS WOULD FACTOR INTO HIS VERY DUMB ACTIONS LATER ON.

 WE HAVE A FUN TIME AT THE BAR AND IT WAS NICE TO GET OUT FOR A LITTLE BIT. I SETTLE UP AND FOR THE 2ND TIME THE BARTENDER OVER CHARGES US. I HAVE ISSUES WITH THIS. FOR THE 2ND TIME HE OVER CHARGES A FRIEND TOO.

 WE MOVE THE PARTY BACK TO OUR HOUSE. WE SHOOT POOL , LISTEN TO MUSIC , AND CONTINUE THE DRINKING. EVERYONE IS FEELING GOOD AND HAVING FUN WITH MUSIC AND LAUGHTER. WHEELS MEANDERS HER WAY TO BED WITHOUT SAYING GOODNIGHT TO ANYONE. YEP....SHE WAS FEELING GOOD TOO. HOLLYWOOD SAYS HE HAS TO LEAVE IN A COUPLE MINUTES FOR OVER 3 HOURS. IT'S ALWAYS FUN TO HANG WITH HIM. HE ROLLS OUT AND I WALK HIM TO HIS CAR TO SAY GOOD BYE FOR A COUPLE OF MINUTES AND THANK HIM FOR PARTYING WITH US.

 AND NOW THE SHIT SHOW :

 I NEVER USE NAMES WHEN WRITING BUT THIS FORMER NAIL BARTENDER WHO HAS BEEN DRINKING ALL DAY AND INTO THE NIGHT MAKES A HORRIBLE DECISION. THIS DECISION NOT ONLY AFFECTED HIS SAFETY BUT 4 OTHER PEOPLE. THIS IS A DECISION A 10 YEAR OLD WOULD MAKE. I WAS SO PISSED FOR JEOPARDIZING OUR SAFETY. SO WHAT DID HE DECIDE TO DO ? HE WANTED TO WALK HOME FROM GARRETT HILL TO BROOMALL AT 1:30 AM. I THOUGHT HE GOT AN UBER RIDE AND LUCKILY I CALLED HIM JUST IN CASE.

 I GET BACK TO THE BASEMENT AFTER SAYING GOODBYE TO HOLLYWOOD.  MY ELDEST AND HER 2 FRIENDS ASK ME PERMISSION TO GO TO AN AFTER HOURS HOOKA BAR. I TELL THEM IT IS NOT A GOOD IDEA BUT THEY GO ANYWAY. IT WAS THEN I ASKED THEM , " WHERE THE HELL IS N.B. ? " THEY DON'T KNOW SO I CALL HIM. AMAZINGLY HE ANSWERS HIS PHONE AND TELLS ME HE IS WALKING HOME OR TO THE NAIL'S BUS STATION. I CAN BARELY UNDERSTAND HIM. LITTLE DID HE KNOW HE WAS GOING IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION. HE TELLS ME HE HAS NO IDEA WHERE HE IS AND IT IS VERY DARK.

 I CALL MY ELDEST AND SHE AND HER FRIEND DRIVE AROUND LOOKING FOR HIM WHILE THE BOYFRIEND SEARCHES ON HIS MOTORCYCLE. I CALL HIM 2 MORE TIMES AND ASK HIM TO FIND A STREET SIGN. WE DO THIS 3 TIMES. I JUST CAN'T GET AN ANSWER OUT OF HIM AND IT IS MAKING ME EXTREMELY NERVOUS FOR HIS SAFETY AND FOR US DRIVING AROUND INTOXICATED. IT IS TRULY THE 2 EVILS FIGHTING EACH OTHER. SAVE A FRIEND OR GET PULLED OVER BY THE COPS......OR WORSE. HE NEEDS HIS FLASH LIGHT ON HIS PHONE TO SEE A STREET SIGN. THE ONLY SILVER LINING IS HE IS ANSWERING HIS PHONE. OTHER WISE HE WOULD OF WONDERING IN THE COLD OF NIGHT , POSSIBLY TRYING TO ENTER A UNKNOWN HOME , AND WORSE.....PICKED UP BY THE POLICE.

 THE KIDS CAN NOT FIND HIM SO NOW I GET MY CAR TO JOIN THE SEARCH. MIND YOU IT IS DAMN NEAR 2AM AND ALL OF US HAVE BEEN DRINKING ALL NIGHT. I CAN'T BELIEVE I AM DOING THIS !!!  I TALK TO MY ELDEST 2 MORE TIMES AND N.B. ANOTHER 2 TIMES. WE FINALLY GET A LOCATION BY HIM. THE KIDS IN THEIR CAR , THE BOYFRIEND ON HIS MOTORCYCLE , AND ME ALL CONVERGE ON THE LOCATION. I AM ON THE PHONE WITH OUR FORMER BARTENDER AND HE SAYS HE HEARS A MOTORCYCLE. I TELL HIM THAT PERSON IS LOOKING FOR YOU AND TO STAY PUT.

 OUR ELDEST AND HER FRIEND PICK HIM UP AND I CAN HEAR MY ELDEST YELLING AT HIM AS I PULL UP JUST 30 SECONDS BEHIND. IN 40 MINUTES OUR FORMER BARTENDER WALKED IN A CIRCLE AND WAS JUST 6 BLOCKS AWAY.....GOING THE WRONG WAY THE WHOLE TIME. I GET HIM IN MY CAR. HE TELLS INCOHERENTLY TO ME MULTIPLE TIMES TO JUST TAKE HIM TO THE NAIL TRAIN STATION. THERE IS NO WAY I AM DROPPING HIM OFF ANYWHERE SO I START DRIVING TOWARDS BROOMALL. I DO NOT KNOW EXACTLY WHERE HE LIVES BUT I AM HOPING HIS SENSES TELL HIM HOW TO GET HOME WHEN I AM CLOSE. AS I DRIVE ON BRYN MAWR AVENUE HE TELLS ME 10 TIMES I AM HEADING THE WRONG WAY. HE THINKS I AM HEADING TOWARDS VILLANOVA. HE HAS NO CLUE WHERE HE IS.

 SOON I AM IN BROOMALL ON SPROUL ROAD AND HE DOES SEE A FAMILIAR STREET.....HIS. I CAN NOT BELIEVE I AM DRIVING AROUND LATE NIGHT BUT I TRULY FEEL IF I LET HIM JUST WONDER OFF OR TRY TO GET A TRAIN OR BUS HOME HE WOULD GOT HURT , GET IN TROUBLE , OR END UP IN ATLANTIC CITY. HE RECOGNIZES HIS HOUSE AND CAN NOT OPEN THE DOOR WITH HIS KEYS. HIS 8 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER WAITING LETS HIM IN. I GET 2 MORE TEXTS BY HIM BUT I JUST CONCENTRATE ON GETTING HOME. OH MAN , WHAT AN ORDEAL. THERE WAS ALOT MORE GOING ON BUT THIS IS THE GIST OF THE STORY. WE SAVED A FRIEND FROM SERIOUS INJURY OR POSSIBLE TROUBLE WITH THE LAW. IN MY MIND THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO DOUBT EITHER ONE OF THESE WOULD OF HAPPENED.

  SUNDAY     3 - 7 - 21

 ANOTHER FUN LIVE STREAM AT THE NAIL WITH OLD SCHOOL MUSICIANS. THE LUCKY STIFFS PERFORMED A 1+ HOUR SET TO OVER 100 VIEWS. IT WAS MY KIND OF ERA OF MUSIC WITH SONGS LIKE " MUSTANG SALLY " AND " BRICK HOUSE ". I WAS EVEN DANCING WITH MY ELDEST ( WHO RAN THE IN-HOUSE SHOW ).

 HAVE TO THANK OUR YOUNGEST FOR HELP RUNNING THE SHOW REMOTELY FROM CENTER CITY.

 70+ DEGREES THIS WEEK !!!  YEAH....GOOD CHANCE I'M HEADING EAST OR NORTH.

 I AM PROUD TO SAY I HAVE SHOWERED FOR THE 4TH TIME..............IN THE LAST 2 WEEKS.

 WHEN THE PUP LAYS UPSIDE DOWN IT JUST CRACKS US UP. WE TAKE PICTURES OF THIS POSITION ALL THE TIME. IT JUST SHOWS THE DOG HAS TOTAL TRUST WITH US AND FEELS REALLY COMFORTABLE.  MAN , THE JOY DOGS BRING IS UNFILLABLE. ( NOT SURE IF THAT IS A WORD )

 WATCHED THE FLYERS LOSE AGAIN.

 DID NOT WATCH NBA ALL-STAR GAME OR MEGHAN AND HARRY AT ALL.

 DID WATCH 2ND EPISODE OF THE NEW SEASON THE WALKING DEAD AND THAN AFTERWARDS THE TALK SHOW CALLED......THE TALKING DEAD. BOTH WERE OKAY TO GOOD.

 I LOVE MY TRAILER.......JUST SAYING.

 PUP SLEEPS WITH ELDEST WHICH GIVES ME A CHANCE AGAIN TO SLEEP ALONE......STILL SLEPT LIKE CRAP. THIS GETTING UP TO PEE REALLY BLOWS.

 OUR ELDEST CLEANED THE BASEMENT BEFORE ME. WHAT THE HELL ?

  MONDAY     3 - 8 - 21

 RIGHT OFF THE BAT......A DREAM ABOUT WILL FARRELL TEACHING ME W.W.E. WRESTLING MOVES. THEY WERE PRETTY FUNNY.

 THE WARM WEATHER IS COMING IN. THAT IS FRIGGIN' NICE.

 I NEED TO FIX SOME STEPS AT A RENTAL PROPERTY. I WAS WAITING FOR THE SNOW TO MELT. ANOTHER PROJECT FOR TOMORROW.

 2ND COMPANY OUR ELDEST APPLIED FOR A JOB DOES NOT RESPOND AFTER INTERVIEW. OH MAN , THIS GOT ME MELANCHOLY. I THINK I WILL CALL JUST TO INVESTIGATE A LITTLE.

  DIDN'T MENTION A WARD 2 FEMALE COMMISSIONER CANDIDATE STOPPED BY THE NAIL ON SUNDAY FOR THE MUSIC. I HAVE TO ADMIT THIS WOULD BE ONE OF THE MOST EYE APPEALING COMMISSIONER I EVER SEEN. SHE WOULD GET MY VOTE.

 TOOK A RIDE TO THE NAIL TODAY. I HAVE 2 CEILING LIGHTS OUT. I GOT 1 TO WORK BUT MAN DO I HAVE THE WORST LUCK WITH THESES 4' FLORESCENT LIGHTS. I USED A " TEST " FIXTURE LAID ON THE POOL TABLE. I WENT THROUGH 12 BULBS AND NOT ONE WORKED. THE CONCLUSION - A BAD FIXTURE.

 I ALSO TOOK THE PUP WITH ME JUST TO GET HER OUT. BEFORE WE LEFT I PLAYED WITH HER IN THE BACK YARD AS SHE CHASED AND RETURNED A TENNIS BALL. AT THE NAIL SHE FOLLOWED ME AROUND ON EVERY PROJECT......EXCEPT CHANGING THE LETTERS ON THE OUTSIDE MARQUEE.

 SOME THINGS DONE - MARQUEE , CLEANED ALL CEILING FANS , CLEANED OFF SOME FIXTURE COVERS & HEAT GRATE VENTS , REPLACED SOME CEILING TILES , AND MAN DID I SPEND SOME TIME ON LIGHTS.

 ROLL HOME AND CHILL ON MY COMPUTER FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS. 

 WHEELS MAKES THESE HOME FRESH DINNERS. THEY TURNED OUT REALLY GOOD AND WE HAD LEFT OVER'S TONIGHT.

 SETTLE IN AND WATCH AN EPISODE OF DIRK GENTLY. IT WAS VERY GOOD.

 DUMPSTER IS STILL FULL.

 DRILLED HOLES IN A SPACKLE BUCKET FOR DOG POOP. YES , THIS IS WHAT I DO. I WAS USING CARDBOARD BOXES BUT RAIN AND SNOW DETERIORATE THEM QUITE QUICKLY AND BELIEVE ME , IT IS NO FUN DUMPING LARGE AMOUNTS OF PUPPY POOP IN OUR HEDGES. THE BUCKET WAS FULL OF POOP AND WATER. THIS IS NOT FUN. SO AFTER EMPTYING IT I DRILLED HOLES IN THE BOTTOM SO IT COULD DRAIN FROM NOW ON. I KEEP THIS BUCKET OUTSIDE BEHIND OUR GARAGE FOR MY EVERY OTHER DAY CHORE OF POOP PICKER UPPER.

 I DID NOT KNOW THERE ARE 2 " ENTER " BUTTONS ON A KEYBOARD.

 I DID NOT KNOW I CAN USE A CELL PHONE MICROPHONE FOR TEXTING AND LOOKING THINGS UP ON GOOGLE. THIS IS FRIGGIN' AWESOME. LONG PARAGRAPHS TYPED ARE NOW INSTANTLY TEXTED VIA JUST SPEAKING. MODERN TECHNOLOGY IS SO DAMN COOL.

  TUESDAY   3 - 9 - 21

 DID SOME RUNNING TODAY................ALL WITH THE PUPPY.

 I HEAD TO A RENTAL PROPERTY AFTER LOADING MY VAN WITH A SHIT LOAD OF TOOLS AND WOOD PLANKS FOR STEPS.

 ARRIVE AT THE RENTAL TO SEE A DAD PLAYING SOCCER WITH HIS KID NEXT DOOR. HE SAYS TO ME , " AFTER THIS SOCCER MATCH COULD YOU GRAB ME A MICHELOB LIGHT ? "  OUR RENTER HAS A CHRISTMAS TREE WITH LIGHTS ON THE DECK. INSTEAD OF ORNAMENTS SHE USED.........MICHELOB LIGHT BEER CANS. I WAS OKAY WITH IT. SHE ALSO HAS A SHIT LOAD OF TREE LOGS FOR A FIRE PIT.  THE PUP ENJOYS THE NEW SCENERY AS I REPLACE A DECK STEP AND SECURE ANOTHER.

 OFF TO THE NAIL AND I AM PLEASANTLY SURPRISED OUR DUMPSTER WAS EMPTIED. I CALLED THE DAY BEFORE AND OUR TRASH GUY CAME 2 DAYS EARLY. NOW I CAN UNLOAD THE 2ND HALF OF OUR LEATHER COUCH AND THE OLD WOOD FROM THE DECK STEPS I REPLACED.

 IN THE NAIL I BROUGHT A DROP LIGHT FROM OUR GARAGE AND REPLACED ONE HERE. I SPENT MORE TIME TESTING BULBS. IT ENDS UP I HAD A BAD FIXTURE AND ONLY 3 BULBS OUT OF 14 WERE GOOD. I TRASHED THEM ALL. I SPEND SOME TIME CLEANING AND FIXING OTHER STUFF. I ALSO CHASED THE PUP AND GAVE HER ICE CUBES.

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

 NEXT STOP IS SPRINGFIELD FOR 2 COUNTRY SALT & PEPPER SHAKERS.........FREE.  I WOULD OF NEVER GOT THEM BUT BECAUSE MY 2ND STOP WAS JUST 5 MINUTES AWAY I FIGURED WHY NOT. I THINK THEY WILL BE NICE AT THE POCONO HOUSE.

 NEXT STOP WAS A GUY WHO MET ME AT A RITE AID. THIS IS A GOOD LITTLE STORY.  HE IS LOCATED 1 HOUR PAST COATESVILLE. I TOLD HIM I WOULD BE DOING MY TAXES ON SATURDAY IN COATESVILLE BUT STILL A ONE HOUR DRIVE FURTHER IS JUST TOO MUCH. I ASKED HIM IF HE WAS EVER IN THE AREAS OF KING FO PRUSSIA , VILLANOVA , POCONOS , PHILLY , NORTH WILDWOOD , AND SOME MORE. HE RESPONDS , " ACTUALLY ON TUESDAY , I AM GOING TO BE IN SPRINGFIELD VISITING MY SISTER. " SO , WE MEET AT A RITE AID MINUTES FROM HIS SISTER.

 I ARRIVE EARLY AND WALK THE PUP. THE DOG POOPS IN THE PERFECT PLACE.....IN SOME BUSHES. IT IS A MAIN AREA OF CARS , PARKING LOTS , AND STREETS SO I WAS A LITTLE EMBARRASSED IF SHE POOPED IN THE OPEN. THIS IS A VERY GOOD DOG CONCEALING HER #2.

 WHILE WAITING I AM JUST WALKING THE DOG IN THE PARKING LOTS ALONG THE EDGES. ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE PARKING LOT THERE IS A MANHATTAN BAGEL STORE. THE OWNER COMES OUT ON THE OTHER SIDE OF A PARTITION. I THINK HE IS GOING TO GIVE ME SHIT FOR MY DOG TAKING A SHIT. BUT.......HE IS SUPER FRIENDLY AND SAYS HE HAS A TREAT FOR MAZE......A DOG GRAIN BAGEL. MAZE ENJOYS IT.

 THE NICE MAN ARRIVES AND HE LOADS A STAND-UP SUMP PUMP WITH A 24 FOOT DRAIN TUBE AND INSTRUCTIONS IN MY VAN. ALL THIS FOR FREE. I GAVE HIM $10 FOR DRIVING 1 1/2 HOURS.

 I HEAD HOME AND UNLOAD. I USE A WIRE BRUSH TO CLEAN OFF THE SUMP PUMP A LITTLE. IT IS IN VERY GOOD SHAPE. I TAKE IT DOWN THE BASEMENT AND DO A TEST IN A LAUNDRY SINK. IT WORKS PERFECT. THIS IS A HUGE SCORE SINCE THIS MODEL IS AROUND $250 OR MORE.

 I SETTLE IN AND FIND OUT OUR ELDEST DID NOT GET THE JOB. MY HEART BREAKS FOR HER AS SHE WAS UPSET. I DID NOT LIKE NO RETURN CALLS OR ANYTHING FROM THE OWNER. OUR KID CALLED TO THANK THEM FOR THE INTERVIEW AND TO SEE WHAT SHE COULD DO BETTER THE NEXT TIME. A RANDOM TEACHER JUST SAID , " THE POSITION WAS FILLED ". HAVING NO EXPLANATION PISSED ME OFF SO I WROTE  A BOOK OF AN EMAIL BACK TO THE DIRECTOR OF THE SCHOOL. TO ME , THE TOP PERSON CAN TAKE 30 F'N SECONDS TO EXPLAIN WHY THE POSITION WAS FILLED. IT IS GOD DAMN COMMON COURTESY !!  IT BE LIKE ME TELLING A DOORMAN TO TELL A POTENTIAL BARTENDER SHE WAS NOT HIRED AFTER I INTERVIEWED HER. 

 WE HAVE A LEFTOVER DINNER AND SETTLE IN. WE WATCH AN EPISODE OF DIRK GENTLY AND IT WAS GOOD AGAIN. SILLY AT TIMES BUT GOOD. I ALSO REALLY LIKE WATCHING THE FLYERS ON MY CELL PHONE. THIS IS SUCH A GREAT APP !!

 WE STOP WATCHING DIRK GENTLY TO WATCH THE FLYERS IN OVERTIME. TO MY SUPER SURPRISE THEY WIN IN A SHOOT-OUT. THEY WERE DOWN 3 -1 TO COME BACK AND WIN 5 - 4 IN OVERTIME. A SOLID WIN BUT SOME WILL COMPLAIN IT WAS AGAINST A BAD TEAM.

 DREXELINE BILLIARDS CLOSES.

  A BAR DOWN THE STREET HAS TUESDAY BINGO NIGHT. OUR ELDEST WENT AND SAID THE  PLACE WAS ABSOLUTELY PACKED. THEY ACTUALLY HAD TO STOP PEOPLE FROM COMING IN. SHE ALSO FORGOT HER WALLET AND A FRIEND GOT PULLED OVER ON HIS MOTORCYCLE. I DON'T THINK SHE IS TAKING THE COVID THING TOO SERIOUS.

 I USE A CALMING RECORDING TO TRY TO SLEEP. IT HELPS AND IT DIDN'T HELP.

 WEDNESDAY    3 - 10 - 21

 OUR NEW CELL PHONES JUST KEEP STEPPING UP. BESIDES A MICROPHONE TO TALK INTO FOR TEXTING , MESSAGING , GOOGLING , AND USING YOUR G.P.S. IT ALSO HAS " SIRI " OPTION. I HAD NO IDEA. YOU CAN ASK ANYTHING AND IT ANSWERS IMMEDIATELY.....SPORT SCORES , JOKES , STORIES , NEWS......UNBELIEVABLE. MAN , DID MY LAST PHONE TOTALLY BLOW.

 FACEBOOK MARKETPLACE AGAIN - ME AND THE PUP TAKE A RIDE TO A REALLY BEAUTIFUL AREA IN WEST CHESTER. THERE WERE STREAMS , WALKING PATHS , LARGE TREES , AND A PRIVATE CUL-DE-SAC DEVELOPMENT WITH HUGE HOMES , YARDS , AND DRIVEWAYS. ONE OF THE HARDEST THINGS TO FIND FOR FREE IS A PEDESTAL SINK WITH A FAUCET. I WAS AT LEAST 0 - 5. I MEAN AN AD WILL BE UP FOR UNDER AN HOUR AND IT BE GONE. TODAY THAT CHANGED. A NICE WOMAN REMODELING HER BATHROOM WAS GIVING IT AWAY. THERE HOUSE WAS HUGE. I WANT TO INSTALL IT IN THE MEN'S BATHROOM AT THE NAIL.....OUR SINK LOOKS HORRIBLE.

 THE ONLY PROBLEM DRIVING TO WEST CHESTER WAS WORK AREAS. I HAD THESE 2 STREET WORKERS TRYING TO DIRECT TRAFFIC. IT WAS THE WORST I EVER SEEN. THEY COULD NOT DIRECT A 6 WAY WORK AREA SO THEY DID IT ONE AT A TIME. I GOT OUT OF LINE AND CUT THROUGH AN APARTMENT COMPLEX. I GOT STOPPED AGAIN FURTHER DOWN THE ROAD. I NEVER SEEN FLAGGERS SO F'N BAD.

 BACK HOME I HEAD TO THE BASEMENT TO FINISH THE FINAL INSTALL OF OUR SUMP PUMP. THIS WAS NOT FUN AND HERE IS THE PROCEDURE :

 - I NEED TO FIND CLAMPS OR " BOOTS ". ONE END OF THE PLASTIC TUBE IS CONNECTED TO THE SUMP PUMP BOTTOM. I USE A CLAMP AND RATCHET IT TIGHTLY SECURE IT.

 - THE NEXT PROBLEM IS CONNECTING THE OTHER END OF THE TUBE TO A " CLEAN OUT " STEM LEADING INTO A MAIN LINE PIPE. I SEARCHED TWICE IN MY HARDWARE STORE TOOL ROOM AND THE GARAGE. I COULD NOT BELIEVE I FOUND A 3" TO 2" RUBBER GASKET " BOOT " AND A 2 FOOT METAL TUBE TO RUN IN THE " CLEAN OUT " PIPE. THIS WAS A HUGE SCORE. THE CHANCES OF HAVING THESE EXACT PRODUCTS WAS NEARLY ZERO. ANOTHER COOL THING IS I FOUND A REALLY NICE MOEN SHOWER HEAD TOO. I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR ONE SINCE OUR RAIN SHOWER HEAD DOES NOT PRODUCE ALOT OF PRESSURE WHEN SHOWERING.

 - I SET UP A DROP LIGHT AND CUT THE PLASTIC SUMP PUMP DRAIN TUBE TO SIZE. I RUN THE TUBE UNDER A RADIATOR ALONG A WALL UNDER A WOOD PANEL FRAME AND LOOP IT AROUND TO THE " CLEAN OUT ". IT IS PERFECT.

 - I LAY DOWN ON THE FLOOR BEHIND THE WET BAR. IT TAKES SEVERAL ATTEMPT TO RATCHET THE " BOOT " GASKET TO THE TUBE AND " CLEAN OUT ". LAYING SIDEWAYS ON THE CEMENT FLOOR WITH A HOT DROP LIGHT 6 INCHES FROM MY FACE WAS NOT FUN. BUT , EVERYTHING GETS CONNECTED.

 - USING THE OFF-CUT TUBING I RUN IT FROM A BAR FAUCET TO THE SUMP PUMP HOLE. I RUN THE WATER INTO THE HOLE AND TEST IT AT LEAST 5 TIMES. THE SUMP PUMP TURNS ON AND OFF PERFECTLY. THIS IS A BIG PROJECT COMING TO AN END.......ALL FOR FREE.

 - THIS IS A STAND UP SUMP PUMP SO I NEED TO SEMI-HIDE IT. I CUT 2 MILK CRATES WITH A JIG SAW OUTSIDE IN THE NICE WEATHER. THIS TAKES AT LEAST 3 ATTEMPTS TO GET IT RIGHT AND GOING UP AND DOWN THE STEPS 3 TIMES. THE JIG SAW WORKS PERFECTLY.

 - I COVER AND SECURE THE SUMP PUMP WITH 2 UPSIDE DOWN MILK CRATES. I CUT A PIECE OF WOOD TO LAY ON TOP OF THE CRATES AND THAN A CARPET TILE ON TOP OF THE WOOD. I RUN THE POWER SUPPLY ALONG THE WALL.

 - NEXT , I CUT TO SIZE THE FLOOR CARPET TILES TO THE SUMP PUMP AREA. I CLEAN UP AND THIS JOB IS ABOUT 99% DONE. I AM NOTE SURE IF I WANT TO RE-APPLY A PANEL TO CONCEAL THE " BOOT " TO THE " CLEAN OUT " PIPE. FOR NOW , I WILL LEAVE IT OPEN TO OBSERVE IT.  I AM REALLY HAPPY HOW THIS CAME OUT. THE NEXT PROJECT IS ATTACKING THE BASEMENT LEAKS FROM THE OUTSIDE STEP AREA. MAY BE SOME KIND OF FLEX-SEAL SEALANT SPRAY FOR CEMENT.

 IT WAS NICE LISTENING TO MY IPOD ON THE SPEAKER SYSTEM. IT WAS CONSTANT MUSIC WITH NO COMMERCIALS. OVERALL THIS SUMP PUMP PROJECT IT IS NOT THE BEST JOB BUT I AM PRETTY PROUD HOW THIS CAME OUT. MOT LIKELY WE WILL NEVER HAVE A HARD RAIN AGAIN.

 HEAD UPSTAIRS WITH THE MOEN SHOWER HEAD. IT DEFINITELY NEEDED CLEANING SO I USED GUNK SPRAY AND A HARD RAG. IT WORKED NICELY.

 OUTSIDE AGAIN I USE OUR AIR COMPRESSOR TO FILL UP THE TIRES ON 3 VEHICLES. OUR VAN HAD WARNING LIGHTS OF LOW PRESSURE ON ALL 4 TIRES. I SPENT ABOUT 20 MINUTES DOING THIS. I CLEAN UP AGAIN.

 INSIDE I INSTALL THE SHOWER HEAD. I NEED TO SHAVE AND SHOWER SO THIS BE A GOOD TEST. UNFORTUNATELY IT WORKS HORRIBLE. IT WAS NICE TO SHOWER AND SHAVE THOUGH.

 FACETIME WITH OUR YOUNGEST AT COLLEGE. THIS IS SO COOL. I JUST CAN'T STOP LOOKING AT THIS KID. AGAIN , THE CELL PHONE STEPS UP BIG TIME.

 I RE-INSTALL THE OLD RAIN FOREST SHOWER HEAD BUT I DID REMOVE MORE OF THE WATER RESTRICTOR. TO MY SURPRISE I DID INCREASE THE WATER PRESSURE BY AT LEAST 30%. THE MOEN SHOWER HEAD I PUT IN A BAG OF VINEGAR TO CLEAN IT AND REMOVE ANY RUST AND BUILD UP. I WILL LET THIS SIT FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS AND RE-TRY IT. IF IT WORKS GREAT. IF NOT , THE RAIN FOREST SHOWERS SEEMS MUCH BETTER NOW. I WILL TEST IT AGAIN WHEN I SHOWER 5 DAYS FROM NOW.

 ANOTHER GOOD MEAL BY WHEELS BY THIS HEALTHY PRODUCT CALLED HELLO FRESH.  I AM TOTALLY SURPRISED HOW GOOD THESE MEALS ARE. I SHOULD BUY THEIR STOCK.

 A HARD BUT NEEDED TALK WITH OUR ELDEST. I KNOW THIS FEELING ALL TOO WELL AND I DO NOT WANT THE KID TO GO THROUGH WHAT I DID WHEN I WAS YOUNG.

 A FRIEND/BARTENDER VISITS WITH HER DOG. MAN , DID CRAZY MAZE FREAK OUT. SHE WAS A TOTAL JOY.....UNTIL THEY LEFT TO GO ON A WALK WITHOUT HER. SO NOT COOL.

 WHEN OUR ELDEST RETURNS WE ALL WATCH 2 EPISODES OF NAME THAT TUNE. HOW THE HELL CAN YOU NAME A TUNE IN ONE NOTE ?!?!?

 I MOVE TO MY BEDROOM AND WE DO A 2ND FACETIME WITH OUR YOUNGEST. IT WAS WONDERFUL AS ALWAYS. IT JUST FREAKS ME OUT WE CAN ALL TALK AND SEE EACH OTHER.

I DECIDE I LIKE TO WATCH ALL THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS MOVIES SOME DAY. UNFORTUNATELY , I CAN NOT ON-DEMAND OR NETFLIX THEM. I WILL TRY ANOTHER WAY LATER. NOT SURE WHY I WANT TO WATCH THESE MOVIES IN ORDER. I EVEN GOOGLED HOW TO WATCH THEM IN ORDER.

 WATCH SEVERAL EPISODES OF RIDICULOUSNESS AND PLAY 1 GAME OF INTERNET POKER WITH A CASH BUY-IN OF 500K. I CASHED AND CAME IN THIRD WINNING 770K. MAN THIS BE NICE IF IT WAS REAL.

 I ALSO WATCHED MONK ( SO MISS THIS SHOW ) AND TWO & A HALF MEN. OH MY GOD WAS " CANDY " A SMOKE SHOW.

 OFF TO BED LISTENING TO 30 MINUTE CALMING TAPE. I FELL ASLEEP PRETTY QUICKLY.

  THURSDAY     3 - 11 - 21

 NETFLIX JUST HIT 100 MILLION SUBSCRIBERS. AT $7 A MONTH THAT BRINGS IN $700 MILLION A MONTH.......NICE.

 FLYERS BLOW , NOVA BLOWS.....GOT THAT OUT OF THE WAY. 76ERS WIN WITHOUT EMBIID AND SIMMONS.

 DRIVE TO RESTAURANT DEPOT FOR THE FIRST TIME IN OVER A YEAR. I SPENT A MORTGAGE PAYMENT.  I THOUGHT FOR SURE THE LINES WOULD BE WAY WAY LESS THAN THE ALWAYS 30 MINUTE WAIT WITH THE PANDEMIC............NOPE. THEY STILL BLOW IN MOVING CUSTOMERS.

 STOP AT THE NAIL TO UNLOAD.....BLOW.

 STOP AT MY PARENTS HOUSE WHERE A FAMILY MEMBER AND HIS CREW ARE PAINTING THEIR EXTERIOR.

 MOM BUYS ME A WINTER JACKET..........NICE. I LOOK LIKE THE PUFFY MICHELIN MAN WITH THIS JACKET.

 AT HOME I UNLOAD ENOUGH PRODUCT TO FEED 5 FAMILIES FOR ABOUT 6 MONTHS. I DID MISS GETTING THEIR LUNCHMEAT. NOW , I JUST HAVE TO SLICE IT.

 YOUNGEST SEARCHING FOR AN APARTMENT. SHE MIGHT HAVE A PLACE CLOSE TO HER COLLEGE.

 I DECIDED TO START WATCHING THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS MOVIE SERIES. THERE IS 10 TOTAL WITH 2 MORE COMING. THIS SERIES HAS GROSSED OVER 3 BILLION DOLLARS , VERY POPULAR , AND SOME GOOD REVIEWS.

 MY ANALOGY OF THE FIRST 2 FAST & FURIOUS MOVIES WATCHED :

 1ST - THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS ( 2001 )  - BLOW

 2ND - 2 FAST 2 FURIOUS ( 2003 ) - BLOW

 I JUST DON'T GET IT. EXTREMELY LONG CAR CHASE SCENES WITH SUPER HOPPED UP ENGINES. DRIVERS LOOK AT EACH OTHER FOR OVER 10 SECONDS WHILE DRIVING 140 MPH.  ONE GUY USED A LAPTOP TOP WHILE DOING 140 MPH !!! THE STORY LINES , AT BEST , ARE STUPID TO OKAY TO PREDICTABLE. THE DAMN CHASE SCENES ARE COMPLETELY ANNOYING WITH THE CAMERA MOVING LIKE IT WAS IN A BLENDER THROW OFF A BRIDGE.  EXCEPT FOR ONE SCENE IN THE 2ND MOVIE. FURIOUS I STARTED THESE MOVIES AND THEY ARE NOT FAST ENOUGH TO FINISH. ABSOLUTELY LAUGHABLE CARS SCENES. FOR THE MOTOR HEADS MAYBE THEY LIKE THIS COOL HIGH TECH CAR ENGINES. OH , SMOKING HOT GIRLS DOES HELP.

 ONE COOL SCENE - 50 COP CARS CHASE 4 GET AWAY CARS INTO A PARKING GARAGE WITH GARAGE DOORS. THE 4 BAD GUYS ENTER THE GARAGE AND 4 ASSOCIATES CLOSE THE DOORS BEHIND THE CARS AS THEY ENTER. THE POLICE WITH HELICOPTERS AND 50 COP CARS SURROUND THE BUILDING. ONE CHIEF OFFICER ON HIS MEGAPHONE ANNOUNCES " THERE IS NO WAY OUT. COME OUT WITH YOUR HANDS UP !!! " THE DOORS OPEN SLOWLY AND..............400 CARS STORM OUT CONCEALING THE 4 BAD BAD GUY'S CARS. I HAVE TO ADMIT THAT WAS COOL.

 I MADE A DOUBLE CHEESEBURGER. I FEEL GUILTY EATING A COW BUT JESUS THEY ARE SO DAMN GOOD !!

 I ALLOW A RENTER TO ENTER A RENTAL HOME BUT HE WOULD BE ARRIVING BEFORE THE CLEANER. I WARNED HIM IT MAY NOT BE PERFECT. HE WAS TOTALLY COOL WITH GETTING IN A DAY EARLY ( UNHEARD OF WITH RENTAL PROPERTIES OR HOTELS AT $250 A NIGHT ). UPON ARRIVING HE TOLD HIS WIFE HE HAD TO PICK UP SOME CIGARETTE BUTTS ON THE DECK AND SOME BREAD CRUMBS ON A CUTTING BOARD. EVERYTHING ELSE WAS CLEAN. THE WIFE YELLED AT HIM TO TELL ME. THIS WILL BE THE LAST TIME I LET ANYONE IN EARLY WITHOUT HAVING IT PROPERLY CLEANED. THEY SAVED $250 ,  GOT IN WAY EARLY , AND COMPLAINED ABOUT CLEANING FOR 11 SECONDS......UN-F'N-BELIEVABLE.

 WE WATCH A DIRK GENTLY. IT WAS GOOD. WHEELS WATCHED A HOSPITAL SHOW WHILE I HEAD TO MY ROOM.

  OFF TO BED AND USE THE CALMING TAPE AGAIN. MAN THIS PUTS ME TO SLEEP BIG TIME.  IT'S THE WAKING UP 3 TIMES TO PEE AND MORE THAT SUCKS. HOW THE HELL CAN I KEEP WAKING UP 200 TIMES A FUCKING NIGHT !??!!

  FRIDAY     3 - 12 - 21

 IT'S OFFICAL....CHICKENS FREAK OUT OUR PUP.

 FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE.....AGAIN. THIS TIME A DVR FOR A SECURITY SYSTEM. IT SEEMS IN GOOD SHAPE. I WILL TEST IT LATER NEXT WEEK.

 STARTED A PROJECT TODAY OF INSTALLING 2 UNDER CABINET LIGHTS TO AN EXISTING ONE. SO , HOW DO YOU RUN A WIRE AROUND A STOVE AND MICROWAVE ?  I PULLED OUT THE FRIDGE , STOVE , AND MADE ONE HOLE IN MY BEDROOM WALL TO " FISH " A WIRE. THE HARDEST THING WAS DRILLING THE FIRST HOLE. JESUS , WHAT A PAIN IN THE ASS. I RAN THE 2 LIGHTS AND TESTED.....ALL GOOD. THE LAST THING WAS TO INSTALL A FAT BULB. I TRIED 2 BULBS AND BROKE THE END PINS ON BOTH.....BLOW. LUCKILY IN MY BASEMENT I HAD A THIN BULB AND IT WORKED NICELY. I AM REALLY HAPPY HOW THESE CAME OUT. NOW , HOW DO I INSTALL 2 MORE LIGHTS ACROSS A KITCHEN SINK ?

 OH ,CLEANING UP A 100 TOOLS AND WET/DRY VACUUMING WAS NOT FUN. I HAD SHIT ALL OVER THE PLACE PLUS I HAD TO MOVE A TON OF STUFF TOO.

 FEEL BAD FOR OUR YOUNGEST. THEY WERE SHOWN A PLACE YESTERDAY AND INQUIRED ABOUT MAKING A DEPOSIT THE VERY NEXT MORNING ON AN APARTMENT. BUT  , SOMEONE BEAT THEM. THAT WAS DAMN FAST.

 WATCHED FAST AND FURIOUS 4 - BLOW

  I GOOGLED THE ORDER ON HOW TO WATCH THE ENTIRE SERIES. THEY DO NOT RECOMMEND IN A ROW. ANYWAY , THE EXACT SAME SILLY CAR CHASE SCENES AND DUMB PLOTS. THE ARE 2 VERY GOOD THINGS IN THE MOVIE THOUGH.

 1 - HOW THEY KILL THE BAD GUY. VIN DIESEL POPS UP HIS CAR ON THE BACK TWO WHEELS WHILE THE BAD GUY IS SHOOTING AT HIM. A BEAT-UP PARTNER LAYS ON THE GROUND UNDER THE BAD GUY'S FEET. VIN DIESEL'S CAR IS GETTING TOO CLOSE SO THE BAD GUY DECIDES TO JUMP OUT OF THE WAY. THE PARTNER , ON THE GROUND , GRABS HIS LEGS AND FORCES HIM IN POSITION. DIESEL SLAMS THE BEJESUS OUT OF THE BAD GUY'S BODY WITH HIS CAR INTO ANOTHER CAR. I HAVE TO AMDIT THAT WAS COOL.

 2 - ACTRESS GAL GADOT , WHO PLAYS WONDER WOMAN , WAS IN IT. THIS MOVIE WAS FILMED IN 2009 SO IT WAS 12 YEARS AGO. LET ME TELL YOU , WONDER WOMAN WAS MORE OF A PIECE OF ASS SMOKE SHOW BACK THAN.......OH MAN.   HER VOICE ALONE MAKES ME FANTASIZE ABOUT BEING IN HER GOLDEN LASSO.

 ** I COULD NOT FIND THIS MOVIE ON STREAM , ON-DEMAND , OR CABLE SO I USED YOU-TUBE TO WATCH MOVIE IN 27 FIVE MINUTE PARTS. IT WAS HORRIBLE QUALITY AND TOOK FOREVER TO WATCH.

 CHEESE STEAKS FOR DINNER. I AM SO OKAY WITH THAT.

 ELDEST WORKS OUT , DOES YOGA WITH WHEELS , AND TAKES A SHOWER. THIS IS GOOD.

 WHEELS GOES TO A FAMILY MEMBER'S HOUSE FOR QUICK CHIROPRACTIC APPOINTMENT. IT'S AROUND 6PM.

 I CHILL AT HOME AT WATCH THE 76ERS WIN. I ALSO WATCH A VERY GOOD DOCUMENTARY RE-ENACTMENT SERIES CALLED AGE OF THE SAMURAI : BATTLE FOR JAPAN. JESUS THEY WERE ABSOLUTELY BRUTAL AND RUTHLESS.

 AT MIDNIGHT OUR ELDEST COMES IN WITH FRIENDS. THE ONE FRIEND / BARTENDER I ADORE. THEY GO DOWN THE BASEMENT AND SHE COMES BACK UP DRESSED IN A LARGE AIR FILLED CHICKEN OUTFIT. OH MY GOD OUR DOG FREAKED OUT AND HAD NO IDEA WHAT TO DO WITH IT. IT WAS FUNNY.

 I CAN NOT SLEEP BECAUSE WHEELS IS STILL OUT. I FINALLY CALL AND INSTANTLY KNOW SHE IS FEELING GOOD. I DRIVE TO THE HOUSE AND OF COURSE......DRINK WITH HER , FAMILY , AND A FRIEND I HAVE NOT SEEN IN 5 YEARS.

 A FAMILY MEMBER TELLS ME I SHOULD GET A JOB AT HOME DEPOT. ANNNNNNNNND I THOUGHT MY PRIDE COULD NOT GO ANY LOWER.

 BACK HOME WE HAVE A NIGHT CAP AND WATCH TV FOR ABOUT 30 MINUTES.

 OFF TO BED AND AGAIN LISTEN TO THIS CALMING CASSETTE TAPE. I FELL ASLEEP WITHIN 3 MINUTES........NOT EVEN.

 IN BED AFTER 2:30AM , UP TWICE BEFORE 4:30AM , AND PEE AGAIN AT 6:15AM. I JUST STAYED UP........BLOW.

 SATURDAY    3 - 13 - 21

 IT WAS TIME TO SEE TONY SOPRANO.

 YOU WANT A DAY? THIS FELT LIKE A WEEK AND IT WAS FUN.

 FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE STRIKES AGAIN..........5 TIMES. SERIOUSLY......5 TIMES. ALL PICK-UPS WITH THE PUP , OUR YOUNGEST , OR WHEELS.....OR A COMBINATION OF BOTH. ALL ITEMS WERE FREE.

 1 - 2 BRAND NEW 4' BULBS. SINCE ALL MINE ( 14 ) AT THE NAIL WERE BURNT OUT I WAS LOOKING FOR MORE. I HAD ZERO.

 2 - SEVEN 4' BULBS ( GUY WAS SUPER COOL IN A BEAUTIFUL OVERBROOK AREA. HOUSE WAS HUGE )

 3 - WITH MY YOUNGEST , WHICH IS ALWAYS AWESOME ( AND THE PUP ) , WE DO SEVERAL THINGS :

  A) - PICK UP 50 OAK WOOD CABINET PULLS. THESE KNOBS COULD BE A NICE UPGRADE FOR THE POCONO HOUSE. AN OLDER GENTLEMAN WASHING HIS CAR THAT GAVE THEM TO US WAS VERY NICE.

  B) - TRAVEL TO AN APARTMENT WITH POTENTIAL TO RENT. MY KID AS NERVOUS AS I KNOCKED ON THE DOOR TO ASK THE COLLEGE RENTERS SOME QUESTIONS. I LIKE THE LOCATION OF THE PROPERTY AS TO WHERE HER CAMPUS IS. SHE WAS LUCKY....NO ANSWER. I MEAN IT WAS 12 NOON SO EVERYONE WAS SLEEPING.

  C) - GO TO WAWA AND I BUY HER COFFEE. A QUICK NOTE - AT 18TH ON MARKET STREET IS NOT A 2 WAY STREET.

  D) - BACK TO HER DORM. A FRIEND JOINS US TO PLAY WITH MAZE THE PUP AND HELP BRING UP NICE FOOD SUPPLIES I GOT HER.....GOLD FISH , VANILLA CROISSANTS , SMART POP CORN , AND STRAWBERRY POP-TARTS. ALL THE ESSENTIALS FOR A COLLEGE STUDENT.

  4 - I AM NOT HOME FOR 30 SECONDS AND ANOTHER PERSON RESPONDS TO A REQUEST. JUST MINUTES FROM OUR HOUSE I PICK UP 15 HOUSE SHUTTERS. THE FUNNY THING.....I WAS AT THIS HOUSE BEFORE. A BEAUTIFUL PRIVATE AREA.

 5 - WITH WHEELS WE STOP TO PICK-UP A 2' CEILING LIGHT.

 I REALLY ENJOYED TRAVELING WITH THE PUP , MEETING PEOPLE , AND SEEING OUR YOUNGEST AND HER FRIEND.

 BACK HOME I SPACKLE THE SINGLE HOLE I MADE WHEN " FISHING " WIRES FOR THE UNDER CABINET LIGHTS. THEY CAME OUT SO NICE. FOR 20 YEARS WE HAD A LIGHT SWITCH THAT DID NOTHING. NOW IT POWERS 3 LIGHTS. IT IS VERY LITTLE BUT I AM PROUD OF IT. ALL FOR FREE. ( LOVE THAT WORD )

 DID YOU TURN YOUR CLOCKS FORWARD ONE HOUR ?

 WHEELS AND I ROAD TRIP WEST FOR ONE HOUR. IT WAS TIME TO DO OUR TAXES WITH TONY SOPRANO. I HAVE BEEN GOING TO HIM FOR OVER 40 YEARS AND IT IS ALWAYS A FREAKIN' FUN STORY TELLING SHOW.

 SO , HERE IS OUR EXPERIENCE. TELL ME IF THIS IS HOW YOUR TAXES GET DONE ?

 - I TEXT HIM WE ARE HERE. HE TEXTS BACK " GO TO KITCHEN ". I KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS. THEY HAVE A LOCKED EXTERIOR DOOR BUT THE RECEPTIONIST ALLOWS US IN AND TELLS US TO GO TO KITCHEN. THEY RECOMMEND CLIENTS TO STAY OUTSIDE TO BE CALLED.....NOT US.

 - IN THE KITCHEN WE FEAST. IT IS 6PM AND WE ARE HUNGRY SINCE WE HAD NO DINNER. HOW ABOUT THIS........LAMB CHOP RIBS ( EXCELLENT ) , CHICKEN CUTLETS , PILAF RICE , SOME SORT OF VEGGIE STEW IN A TRAY , CABBAGE STUFFED WITH PORK , DINNER ROLLS , DESERTS , BEER , WATER , COOKIES , M&M'S , AND MORE. WE CHILLED FOR ABOUT 30 MINUTES AND IT WAS FUN. THE FOOD WAS VERY GOOD.  WE ARE DRINKING BEER AND EATING EXCELLENT FOOD AT OUR ACCOUNT'S HUGE MODERN OFFICE.

 - NEXT WE ARE ESCORTED TO A PRIVATE WAITING ROOM. A BEAUTIFUL SITTING ROOM WITH A TV AND COMFORTABLE LEATHER COUCH. WE CHILL IN HERE BY OURSELVES AND WATCH THE REMAINING 30 MINUTES OF UNDERCOVER BOSS. IT WAS THE CEO OF POPEYE'S CHICKEN....WHEELS FAVORITE. OF COURSE THE SHOW MADE US CRY.

 - IT IS STANDARD TO HAVE A 6PM MEETING AND START ONE HOUR LATER. OUR ACCOUNTANT WAS RIGHT ON TIME......7PM.  WE ARE ASKED TO HEAD TO HIS OFFICE.

 - WE SIT AND THE STORY TELLING STARTS FROM VACATION HOMES BEING BOUGHT & SOLD , DOING THE TAXES FOR " JAKE " OF TWO & AND HALF MEN TV SHOW ( HE HAS OVER 80 MILLION ) , HORSES , CARS , RESTAURANTS , VEGAS , ATLANTIC CITY , MONEY , INVESTMENTS , FOOD , POLITICIANS , TAXES OF COURSE , AND MORE. IT IS VERY NORMAL FOR US TO BE HERE 4 HOURS AND WE LOVE EVERY MINUTE.

 - WE ASK OUR KIDS TO FACETIME WITH OUR ACCOUNTANT FOR QUESTIONS. WE TOTALLY HOOK-UP OUR ELDEST WITH A VERY NICE TAX RETURN. OH , I PLEADED WITH HER NOT TO GO TO H & R BLOCK. SHE FINALLY AGREED AND CANCELLED HER MEETING WITH THEM. SHE WAS QUITE HAPPY WITH THE RETURN SHE IS GETTING TO SAY THE LEAST. OH......AND IT WAS FREE. ALSO , ON TOP , BOTH KIDS WILL GET $1400 STIMULUS CHECKS.

 - THE KIDS WERE FUN DOING THE FACETIME WITH OUR ACCOUNTANT AND US.

 - WE WRAP UP AND SAY OUR GOODBYES. IT WAS THE LATEST WE EVER STAYED HERE.  BUT AGAIN.....ALWAYS A SHOW. IT REALLY IS LIKE SITTING WITH TONY SOPRANO FOR 4 HOURS. I ALSO FOUND OUT WE BOTH HAVE A FAVORITE SHOW......TWO AND A HALF MEN.

 WE ROLL HOME AND STOP FOR #5 FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE PICK-UP ON THE WAY.

 AT HOME WE SETTLE IN WITH DRINKS AND WATCH AN EPISODE OF DIRK GENTLY. IT WAS GOOD. WE ALSO TALK SEVERAL TIMES WITH OUR ELDEST. BOY IS SHE HAPPY WE HOOKED HER UP WITH TAXES.......BIG TIME. FOR A NIGHTMARE YEAR WE DID GOOD TOO.

 I USE MY CALMING CASSETTE TAPE AGAIN. IT IS 5 NIGHTS IN A ROW. FOR THE 5TH TIME I FALL ASLEEP WITHIN 5 MINUTES. UNFORTUNATELY I AM WAKING UP TOO MUCH.

 THE BAND SUPERTRAIN DOES A STREAM FOR THE NAIL. OVER 1,500 VIEWS AND 150 COMMENTS IN UNDER 3 HOURS..........WOW !!

 ANOTHER STREAM ON SUNDAY AT 7:30PM WITH THE WORLD WITHOUT US.

 FLYERS LOSE AGAIN TO THE CAPITALS. A PAINFUL 3RD TIME IN A WEEK.

 SUNDAY     3 - 14 - 21

 A FUN DAY.............WELL , NOT IN THE BEGINNING.

  I DO SOME SMALL PROJECTS AND DECIDE TO TACKLE A TOILET.  WHEELS GOES IN A CLEANING MODE. BOTH NEEDED TO BE DONE.

 OUR TOILET HAS A SMALL LEAK AND RUNS SOMETIMES. SO , I DECIDE TO CHANGE EVERYTHING IN THE TOILET TANK OR AS THEY SAY " THE GUTS ". THIS WAS NOT FUN. I REMOVED THE TANK TOP AND RE-STALLED WITH ALL NEW PARTS. YES , I JUST HAPPEN TO HAVE PACKAGE OF SUPPLIES IN MY BASEMENT WAREHOUSE. HERE IS HOW THIS WENT :

 - THERE ARE 2 BOLTS HOLDING THE TANK TO THE BASE. ONE BOLT COMES OFF SUPER SUPER EASY. TRY TO GUESS THE OTHER ONE ? I TRY SEVERAL DIFFERENT WAYS BUT THE FINAL BOLT IS JUST TOO RUSTED AND WILL NOT SPIN LOOSE. SO I BREAK OUT MY SAW SALL. THIS IS RISKY USING A VIBRATING AND RECIPROCATING TOOL AROUND PORCELAIN.  I TOLD WHEELS , " IF YOU HEAR ME SCREAM YOU KNOW I CRACKED THE TOILET. "

 - THE BOLT CUTS CLEANLY. I USE A WET/DRY VAC TO SUCK UP ANY WATER AND CLEAN THE TANK. I REMOVE ALL OLD PARTS AND INSTALL NEW ONES. I ACTUALLY WORK ON MY BED WHILE THE PUP WATCHES ME. I ALSO LISTEN TO SPORTS TALK RADIO WITH RAY DIDDY.

 - I RE-ATTACH THE TANK AND IT IS NOT SITTING RIGHT. THE BOLTS UNDERNEATH ARE VERY HARD TO GET TO. I LAY ON MY SIDE WITH A FLASH LIGHT TO SEE THE BOLTS UP AND UNDERNEATH. THEY ARE SUPER HARD TO TURN TIGHTLY.

 - I DO NOT LIKE HOW THE TANK  IS " SITTING " BUT CONNECT THE WATER SUPPLY AND RUN A TEST. THE FIRST FLUSH AND WATER SPILLS ALL OVER THE PLACE LIKE A F'N SIEVE. SOME CURSING WAS HEARD.

 - I LAY ON THE GROUND AND REMOVE THE HARD TO GET TO BOLTS. I REMOVE THE TANK AND INSTANTLY REALIZE I DID NOT INSTALL A RUBBER TOILET GASKET BETWEEN THE TANK AND THE BASE. OH MY GOD !!! THE NEW PART WAS SITTING RIGHT NEXT TO ME ON THE SINK !!!

 - I ATTACH THE GASKET AND TIGHTEN THE FLUSH VALVE BETTER. I HOOK EVERYTHING BACK UP. I CAN'T TIGHTENED THE BOLTS AND REALIZE I FLIP FLOPPED THE WASHER AND SMALL RUBBER SEALS. I TAKE EVERYTHING OFF FOR THE 2ND F'N TIME. REMEMBER.....I AM LAYING ON MY SIDE LIKE A WHALE ON A BEACH.

 - I FLIP FLOP THE WASHERS AND SEALS AND TIGHTENED TO MY LIKING. EVERYTHING IS GOOD AND I CLEAN UP. A JOB THAT SHOULD OF TOOK 45 MINUTES TOOK 2 HOURS.......BLOW.

 WHEELS HELPS ME CLEAN UP A 100 TOOLS AND REMOVE STUFF OUT OF THE VAN AND CAR.

 NEXT PROJECT WAS SLICING LUNCH MEAT. WE SPEND ABOUT 40 MINUTES DOING THIS. CLEANING THE SLICER AT THE END IS SUCH A HASSLE BUT MUST BE DONE AFTER EVERY USE. THE PUP ENJOYED SOME OFF-CUTS.

 WE GET A 2ND LEASH/RUNNER FOR THE PUP. WHEELS AND I MAKE SOME ADJUSTMENTS AND ATTACH IT TO OUR EXISTING ONE. IT WORKS NICELY.

 I HAVE TO ROLL OUT BUT MY BROTHER SAYS HE AND HIS FAMILY ARE AT OUR PARK. WHEELS AND I DRIVE DOWN......HE IS NOT THERE. I CALL HIM AND HE TELLS ME THEY DECIDED TO GO TO DAIRY QUEEN. I REPLIED ,
" SO , WHAT DAIRY QUEEN AM I MEETING YOU AT ? "

 DRIVE BACK HOME TO DROP WHEELS OFF.

 I TAKE A FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE RIDE TO A CRAPPY AREA IN OVERBROOK. THE GIRL WAS NICE AS SHE WAS WORKING ON THEIR HOUSE. A SHIT LOAD OF STUFF WAS OUTSIDE. I BELIEVE THEY WERE SETTING DYNAMITE TO IMPLODE THE HOME. I GOT 14 NEW 4' FLORESCENT BULBS. I AM NOW STOCKED AND HEAD TO THE NAIL.

 OH , JUST ONE MORE THING. YOU EVER HEAR A FLORESCENT BULB BREAK OR " POP " ? IT IS LIKE A FRIGGIN' GUN SHOT. THE AREA I WAS IN WAS NOT GOOD FOR THIS NEXT STORY. I SAY HELLO TO THE LADY AND A WORKER. SHE POINTS TO THE BOX OF BULBS AND I RETRIEVE THEM. LITTLE DID I KNOW THE END OF THE BOX HAD A TINY HOLE IN IT JUST ENOUGH TO ALLOW ONE BULB TO SLIDE OUT. I GOT TO MY VAN DOUBLE PARKED IN THE MAIN STREET AND JUST AS I GET READY TO SLIDE A DOOR OPEN..........POP !!!!!!!!!!   I CLEANED UP THE BIG PARTS AND SO GOT THE HELL OUT OF THERE.

 AT THE NAIL I UNLOAD , SET-UP , AND PUT TOGETHER A NEW DEEP FRYER. THE OLD ONE TOOK ITS COURSE TO HELL AND WAS THROWN OUT.

 SOME FRIENDS COME IN AND I DECIDE TO STAY. I TEST THE NEW DEEP FRYER WITH 3 LITTLE PICKLE CHIPS. MAN , WITH NEW OIL , THEY WERE VERY GOOD.......ME WANT WINGY.  SOON , MY ELDEST WHO WAS BARTENDING , WAS MAKING FOOD ORDERS. ABOUT 10 PEOPLE CAME IN INCLUDING " HOLLYWOOD " ( ALWAYS A GOOD TIME TO HANG WITH )  , A FRIEND/BARTENDER ( WHO IS SO MUCH FUN ) , AND A DOORMAN ( BUSTED HIS ANKLE IN 3 PLACES SO I AM TRYING TO GET HIM A CANE ). IT WAS ALOT OF FUN AND I STAYED MUCH LONGER THAN I WANTED BUT.....IT WAS A GOOD TIME.

 I SAY MY GOODBYES AND ROLL HOME. I MAKE AND DEVOUR A ROAST BEEF SANDWICH. FRESHLY SLICED LUNCHMEAT IS ALWAYS GOOD.

 AT HOME I AM GREETED BY THE PUP LIKE SHE HASN'T SEEN ME IN A YEAR. I LOVE IT.

 WHEELS AND I WATCH TV AND SETTLE IN.

 BY 11PM I AM OFF TO BED. WHAT A DAY.

 MONDAY     3 - 15 - 21

 YOU REALLY SHOULD LOG-OUT OF YOUR STREAMING DEVICE.................

  I REPLACED ALL PARTS ON A TOILET AND AFTER 24 HOURS ALL IS GOOD. THIS IS A SMALL MIRACLE.

 A VERY BROKEN FRONT SCREEN DOOR STRONGLY SWAYS MY DECISION TO HEAD EAST. LATER I FOUND OUT THIS DOOR IS MUCH WORSE THAN I THOUGHT.

 START MORNING BY DRILLING OUT A SHOWER HEAD FOR THE 2ND TIME AND RE-INSTALLING IT FOR THE 4TH TIME. I THINK I GOT AN EXTRA 10% WATER PRESSURE ON TOP OF THE 20% I GOT LAST WEEK. THE SHOWERHEAD SITTING IN VINEGAR WAS ABOUT 50% BETTER BUT NOT WORTH KEEPING.

 ELDEST TELLS ME SHE HAD A DREAM I DIED AND SHE JUST KEPT CRYING. THE FUNNY THING I KNOW I AM GOING TO DIE WITH MY SLEEP APNEA BUT I DON'T THINK I WILL BE MISSED THAT MUCH. THE ONE THING THAT FIGHTS MY LONGEVITY FOR LIFE IS MY DAD'S 92 YEAR OLD ( AND STILL GOING ) BLOODLINES.

 PLAY WITH THE PUPPY IN THE BACK YARD. SHE IS SO GOOD AT RETRIEVING A BALL AND DROPPING IT RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME. SHE IS NOT SO GOOD IF THE BALL ROLLS INTO THE BUSHES AND NEEDS TO BE FOUND. SHE LOOKS FOR LIKE 10 SECONDS AND CAN'T FIND IT. SHE STARTS WALKING BACK TOWARDS ME WITH A FACE LIKE , " SO , ANY OTHER GAME YOU WANNA PLAY ? "

 SPACKLE A HOLE IN MY BEDROOM WALL FOR THE 3RD TIME. I AM OKAY IT IS THE ONLY DAMAGE FROM RUNNING A UNDER CABINET WIRE.

 MY BROTHER SELLS HIS BELOVED DODGE VIPER INSTANTLY ON.........FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE.

 ACTION NEWS INTERVIEWS 3 LOCAL BARS. ONE IS FLIP & BAILEYS AND A BARTENDER WE KNOW NAMED PATRICK. HIS ADDING ABILITIES FOR TABS ARE SUSPECT.

 I LOAD UP TOOLS AND SUPPLIES ALONG WITH THE PUPPY.

 ON THE ROAD I STOP AND GET GAS. PRICES STILL RISING AND NOW OVER $3. i TOTALLY BLAME BIDEN. GO TRUMP !!

 STOP IN CENTER CITY TO VISIT OUR YOUNGEST. THIS IS ALWAYS FUN. WE DECIDE TO GO TO THE ITALIAN MARKET ON 8TH STREET WHICH I HAVE NOT BEEN TO IN DECADES, IT WAS FUN AND WE BOTH AGREE WE WILL RETURN.

 WE GO TO DIBRUNO BROTHERS FIRST FOR SANDWICHES BUT THEY WERE SOLD OUT. THE CHEESES , OILS , AND MEATS SMELL REMARKABLE. WE ALSO FIND A GREAT PARKING SPOT ON A TINY STREET.

 WE WALK AROUND A LITTLE BIT AND END UP AT TALLUTO'S. THE FEMALE WORKERS WERE EXCELLENT AS WE PURCHASED 3 DIFFERENT ITEMS AT 3 DIFFERENT TIMES. WE MAKE A PURCHASE AND THAN SAY , " OH I LIKE THAT TOO. " WE GOT 2 OLD SCHOOL ITALIAN HOAGIES ( EXCELLENT AND ALL HAND SLICED ) , A PINT OF BROCCOLI RABE ( OH MY GOD ) , ITALIAN COOKIES AND ITALIAN SODA. I LOVED ALL THE FOOD AND IT WAS SO NICE BEING IN THIS ITALIAN MARKET AREA. I AM TELLING YOU THERE IS NO WHERE ELSE THAT HAS BETTER ITALIAN FOOD.

 NEXT WE DRIVE TO THE CENTER CITY DOG PARK. THIS IS ALWAYS A BLAST. WE SIT OUTSIDE TO HAVE LUNCH WHILE OUR CRAZY PUPPY MAZE PLAYS WITH NEW FRIENDS. IT IS ALWAYS A SHOW AND OF COURSE , OUR DOG JUMPS THE WALL TWICE. SHE ALSO WALKED ALONG THE WALL NUDGING PEOPLE SITTING ON IT. IT WAS PRETTY FUNNY.

 WE MET A 3 MONTH OLD CHOCOLATE LAB NAMED GEORGE. HE WAS SO CHILL AND ADORABLE. YOU KNOW , IF I WAS SINGLE , SKINNY , HAD HAIR , IN SHAPE , NO GLASSES , DRESSED WAY NICER.....I SO TRY TO PICK UP GIRLS AT THE DOG PARK. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS BRING A PUPPY.

 SPEAKING OF ASS. FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE STRUCK AGAIN. I WANTED A TRAVEL ROKU OR AN EXTRA ONE FOR OUR BASEMENT. TODAY THAT WAS ACHIEVED AND GUESS WHO GAVE ME ONE ?.........MEGHAN MARKLE. YEP , ABOUT 2 BLOCKS FROM THE ITALIAN MARKET WE STOPPED BY A HOUSE. I TEXT HER AND THE GIRL ANSWERING THE DOOR LOOKED EXACTLY LIKE MEGHAN MARKLE. SHE WAS OVER THE TOP SUPER NICE AND WEARING WORK-OUT SPANDEX. SHE GAVE ME THE ROKU DEVICE AND ASKED IF I LIKE TO COME IN FOR SOME BREAKFAST AND COFFEE AND MAYBE  DO SOME YOGA WITH HER IN THE DOWN DOGGY POSITION. I DECLINED BECAUSE I HAD MY DAUGHTER AND PUPPY IN THE CAR.

 SOME OF THE ABOVE PARAGRAPH MAY NOT BE TRUE. IT WAS JUST COFFEE SHE OFFERED NOT BREAKFAST.

 SOME OF THE SENTENCE ABOVE MAY NOT BE TRUE.

 DROP OFF MY YOUNGEST AND SHE THANKS AND HUGS ME FOR THE GREAT FOOD AND GOOD TIME SHE HAD. I AGREED.

 I HEAD EAST MORE. I GET TIRED WHEN DRIVING SO I CALL MY PARENTS. THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE OF A FAMILY GETTING TOGETHER AT EASTER. AN OUTSIDE PATIO TYPE OF GET TOGETHER.

 RULES FOR COVID BEING LOOSENED UP. I AM VERY HESITANT ABOUT THIS SINCE EUROPEAN COUNTRIES ARE NOW GETTING SUPER SPIKED WITH VARIANTS OF COVID NOW. OH MY GOD PLEASE NOT AGAIN. TO SHOW I AM STILL UNCOMFORTABLE A GUY CALLED ME TONIGHT AND WANTED TO BOOK A BIRTHDAY SHOW WITH A BAND I KNEW FOR THIS FRIDAY. THIS WOULD OF BROUGHT IN GOOD MONEY BUT I ENDED UP DECLINING. IN " NORMAL " DAYS THIS IS WHAT VENUE OWNERS DREAM OF. OH MAN THIS BLOWS.

 I ARRIVE AND I TAKE PICTURES OF MOUNDS OF SAND HIRE THAN A HOUSE. IT IS DAUNTING AND LOOKS ALMOST LIKE AN ALIEN INVASION LIKE THE MOVIE " INDEPENDENCE DAY ". I CAN NOT BELIEVE HOW HIGH THE SAND IS. FROM THE 2ND FLOOR , YOU STILL CAN NOT SEE THE OCEAN. THE BEACH BEING CLOSED TOTALLY SUCKS TOO. THE REASON FOR THESE GIGANTIC MOUNDS IS RE-STRUCTURING DAMAGED BEACHES.....AGAIN.

  I TRY TO ENTER OUR CONDO AND REALIZE THE BROKEN DOOR IS A MORE SERIOUS PROBLEM THAN I THOUGHT. THE DOOR IS FINE BUT THE EXTERIOR OF OUR HOME IS NOT. BASICALLY , I HAVE NOTHING TO ATTACH THE DOOR TOO. I REALLY NEED TO COME UP WITH A MACGYVER. I CAN BARELY OPEN THE DOOR AND WHEN A PUPPY NEEDS TO GO OUT 10 TIMES A DAY THIS IS SOMETHING THAT NEEDS TO BE FIXED YESTERDAY.

 SOME TRUMPSTERS ARE GOING TO BE GOING TO TRIAL. THEY COULD GET OVER 20 YEARS FOR THEIR ACTIONS AND INSURRECTION. I LIKE TO SEE HOW FUCKING PISSED THEY ARE NOW ABOUT GOVERNMENT.  SEE YA IN 20 YEARS BOYS.    GO TRUMP !!!

 I SETTLE IN , TALK TO WHEELS , AND HAVE SOME LIBATIONS. SOMEONE LEFT SOME FIREBALL CINNAMON WHISKEY BOTTLES. I DRANK A WHOLE BOTTLE TONIGHT.

 THE FIREBALL WHISKY BOTTLE WAS THE SIZE YOU GET IN AN AIRPLANE.

 I TEST THE ROKU AND IT WORKS PERFECT. IN FACT , SO PERFECT MEGHAN MARKLE LEFT HER NETFLIX AND AMAZON ACCOUNT STILL LOGGED IN. I KINDA FELT BAD WATCHING THE AGE OF THE SAMURAI ON NETFLIX ON HER ACCOUNT. THERE ARE PROBABLY MORE ACCOUNTS ON THIS DEVICE BUT I GOT TOO TIRED. BY 10PM I WAS IN BED.  SMARTLY , I MADE MY BED EARLIER.

 DREAM - MY BROTHER AND I SAVE A SMALL BLACK MINK. IT WAS STUCK IN A FOOT TRAP. WE NURSED IT BACK TO HEALTH WHILE A VET AND NO ONE ELSE WOULD HELP.

  TUESDAY     3 - 16 - 21

 YOU AIN'T SO TOUGH NOW ARE YOU ?....................

 TODAY I HAD 2 FRIGGIN' MAJOR PRIORITY PROJECTS. BOTH SUCKED ASS.

 1ST - THE DAMN STORM. FROM AN INSTALLING POINT........I HATE STORM DOORS. I DESPISE THEM. THEY BLOW. THEY SUCK. I CAN'T STAND THEM. NOW , LET THE PROJECT BEGIN.

 THE DOOR COMPLETELY DISCOMBOBULATES WHEN TRYING TO OPEN. THE BOTTOM HALF SHOOTS OUT AND THE TOP OPENS ABOUT 10 INCHES. THE PUP CAN SQUEEZE BY NO PROBLEM BUT ME AND MY 300 POUND OF FATNESS HAVE NO SHOT. I WAS SO PISSED I DECIDED TO REMOVE THE WHOLE DAMN DOOR FROM THE OUTSIDE.....IN THE COLD AND WIND.......BLOW. TWICE , I WENT UPSTAIRS AND OUT THE PATIO DOOR TO GET TO THE FRONT DOOR........BLOW. CAN YOU FEEL THE HATRED I HAVE FOR THIS PROJECT YET ?

 I NEED TO SLIGHTLY PULL BACK TRIM AND NEW SIDING TO ACCESS THE EXTERIOR WALL. I PLACE THE DOOR AROUND THE CORNER IN A CUBBY HOLE. TOMORROW I WILL TAKE A RIDE TO HOME DEPOT......BLOW.

 SECOND - THE ICE MACHINE. IT IS JUST NOT MAKING ICE AT A NORMAL PACE. SINCE IT IS COLD OUT I REMOVE ALL THE FOOD AND PLACE IT IN A PLASTIC BIN. I PLACE A TOWEL ON TOP AND BARELY SLIDE IT OUTSIDE BY THE CRAPPY STORM DOOR........BLOW. I RUN A SMALL FAN TOWARDS THE OPEN FRIDGE AND SHUT OFF THE BREAKER. I WILL DEFROST THE FRIDGE FOR ABOUT 12 HOURS.

 I TAKE A BREAK AND WALK THE PUP. I WANTED TO SEE IF THE TOWNSHIP IS ALLOWING ANY ACCESS TO THE BEACH. SO.....I WALKED AND WALKED AND WALKED. NOT ONE ACCESS WAS ALLOWING ENTRANCE. ALL OF THEM WERE BLOCKED WITH ORANGE PLASTIC FENCING WITH SIGNAGE SAYING " BEACH CLOSED FATTY ". I WALKED SO FAR I GOT TO THE DOG PARK. SO.....I LET OUR PUP HAVE SOME FUN.....KINDA.

 AS SOON AS I ENTER MAZE ( OUR PUP ) INTO THE ENCLOSURE 2 DOGS BEAT-UP ON HER PLAYFULLY. ONE DOG IS A 6 MONTH OLD FURRY THING NAMED " TRIXIE ". SHE IS BEING A LITTLE ROUGH AND AT FIRST I THOUGHT THE DOG WAS BITING AND TUGGING ON MAZE'S HARNESS. WELL , IT WAS HER NECK. BOTH HER OWNER AND ME BREAK THEM UP. I REMOVE THE HARNESS AND THE 2ND BIGGER DOG LEAVE THE PARK. FOR 15 MINUTES MAZE GOT PLAYFULLY BULLIED AND HAD TO SPIN ON HER BACK SEVERAL TIMES TO SHOW SUBMISSIVENESS.  THE YOUNG DOG JUST KEPT GOING AND BITING MAZE'S NECK WITH THE BIGGER FRIEND.

 WELL NOW , THE BIGGER DOG LEFT AND GUESS WHAT ? MAZE HAS HER REVENGE.....HITE !! THE FLUFFY DOG TRIXIE IS BIGGER THAN MAZE BUT HALF THE WEIGHT BECAUSE HER FUR MAKES HER LOOK BIGGER. THE OWNER SAYS SHE IS ABOUT 25 POUNDS. WELL MAZE IS 55 POUNDS AND SOLID. NOW IT WAS GO TIME....WITHOUT A HARNESS. MAZE HARASSED AND THUMPED THIS DOG SO MUCH FOR 15 MINUTES THAT TRIXIE ENDED UP SITTING BY HER OWNER'S LEGS THE REST OF THE TIME. SHE NEVER BOTHERED MAZE AGAIN. I WAS HAPPY FOR MAZY. MORE DOGS CAME IN AND IT WAS FUN. TRIXIE  SAT THE REST OF HER TIME BY HER OWNER TRAUMATIZED.

 BACK HOME WALKING I AM THINKING , " DAMN , IF ONE SEAGULL FINDS MY FOOD OUTSIDE I AM SCREWED.

  THE PUP TOTALLY CRASHES ON MY BED. I ACTUALLY GOT A LITTLE CONCERNED BECAUSE IT WAS AT LEAST 6 HOURS.

 ON OCCASION MY CRAPPY COMPUTER WILL SHUT DOWN MY EMAIL SERVICE AND RE-BOOT. WATCHING ACTION NEWS I SAW 3 VERY LOCAL BARS BEING INTERVIEWED AND THOUGHT " MAYBE I TELL THEM MY STORY AND HOW MY DAUGHTERS STEPPED UP TO HELP THEIR DAD. " I SPENT ABOUT 25 MINUTES WRITING THIS EMAIL AND MY F'N COMPUTER SHUTS IT DOWN. I COULD NOT SAVE THE EMAIL. I SCREAMED SO LOUD SEAGULLS FLEW SOUTH. THE COMPUTER RE-BOOTS AND I WRITE THE WHOLE DAMN EMAIL AGAIN.......BLOW.

 I DECIDE TO MAKE SOME MEALS. I BAKE MEATBALLS AND CHICKEN CORDON BLUE ALONG WITH BOILING UP SOME RIGATONI'S.

 I HAVE SOME DINNER AND SOME WINE.

 I SETTLE IN AND USING MY " NEW " ROKU I WATCH 3 EPISODES OF WORLD WAR II IN COLOUR. IT IS HORRIFIC WHAT ALL COUNTRIES WENT THROUGH. I ALSO WATCH AN EPISODE OF THE AGE OF THE SAMURAI.  THIS WAS EVEN MORE HORRIFIC.

 I WATCH A MOVIE CALLED PARKER WITH JENNIFER LOPEZ ( SO LIKE TO BANG HER ) , KARATE BAD ASS GUY JASON STATHAM , NICK NOLTE ( MAN HE AGED AND GOT FATTER THAN ME ) , AND 2 OR 3 OTHER RECOGNIZABLE ACTORS. THE MOVIE WAS EH TO OKAY. JAY LO STRIPPING DOWN TO HER UNDERWEAR MIGHT OF BEEN PAUSED FOR ABOUT 40 SECONDS.

 I ALSO WATCH THE 76ERS SQUEAK OUT A WIN. I USED MY CELL PHONE TO WATCH THAT SINCE I DO NOT HAVE VERY MANY CABLE STATIONS HERE.

 OFF TO BED AFTER MIDNIGHT. THE PUP STAYS ON THE COUCH BUT AFTER AN HOUR OR SO JUMPS IN WITH ME. I WATCHED TWO & A HALF MEN FOR ABOUT 15 MINUTES.

 FUNNY....THE PUP NOW GROANS WHEN I MOVE AROUND IN BED.

 LAST WEEK I WROTE ABOUT A FORMER GIRLS SOFTBALL PLAYER ON THE RUSTY NAIL SOFTBALL TEAM. SHE WAS ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE AND WAS AN ALL-STAR SHORTSTOP. SPEED IT UP TO TONIGHT.....I AM AT A PARTY AND I SEE HER. I WALK UP AND MAKE CONVERSATION WITH HER. THE PARTY IS LOUD AND MY HEARING BLOWS SO MOST OF HER QUESTIONS I CAN NOT HEAR BUT I JUST NOD MY HEAD. SHE SEES I AM STRUGGLING TO HEAR BECAUSE SEVERAL TIMES I AM CUPPING MY EARS WITH MY HANDS. WE CONTINUE TO TALK , DRINK SOME BEERS , AND EVEN DID A COUPLE OF SHOTS TO REMEMBER THE OLE DAYS. I WAS ENJOYING MYSELF , FEELING GOOD , AND SHE IS STILL ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE. SHE HAS A GYMNAST-LIKE BODY WITH LONG HAIR WAY PAST HER ASS.

 CONTINUED - " L.B. " TELLS ME , " DO YOU WANT TO GET OUT OF HERE SO WE CAN TALK BETTER ? IT'S PRETTY LOUD AND I LIKE TO DO SOMETHING FOR YOU. " I AM THINKING SHE IS JUST BEING POLITE AND NOTICED I WAS STRUGGLING HEARING OUR CONVERSATION. SHE TAKES MY HAND GENTLY AND SAYS , " MY APARTMENT IS RIGHT OVER THERE. " WITH THE OTHER HAND SHE POINTS TO A BUILDING WITH A BLACK EXTERIOR EMERGENCY METAL STAIRCASE. THE KIND YOU PULL DOWN. WE WALK OVER AND SHE PULLS THE STAIRCASE DOWN EASILY WITH A CHAIN HANGING BELOW. WE WALK UP 2 FLIGHTS AND ENTER THROUGH AN OPEN WINDOW. I AM NOT SURE WHY WE ENTERED THIS WAY AND WHY SHE IS BRINGING ME TO HER APARTMENT BUT AGAIN , I THINK SHE IS ENJOYING THE CONVERSATION AND MY INTEREST IN HER LIFE.

 CONTINUED - WE ENTER THROUGH THE WINDOW AND SHE ONLY TURNS ON A BATHROOM LIGHT. SHE SAYS , " TAKE A SEAT ON THE COUCH AND I WILL BE RIGHT BACK. I SIT DOWN AND SHE RETURNS IN SWEAT SHORTS AND A LOOSE TEE SHIRT. SHE SAYS , " LAY DOWN ON YOUR SIDE. "  I DO THIS AND SHE BEGINS TO UNZIP 2 ZIPPERS ON MY PANTS. THE TOP ZIPPER SLIDES DOWN EASILY BUT THE BOTTOM ZIPPER IS SEMI-STUCK. SHE PULLS AT IT FORCEFULLY AND IT BECOMES UNDONE. SHE SAYS , " NOW , I AM GOING TO DO SOMETHING FOR YOU. " SHE STARTS TO BLOW AIR WITH HER MOUTH ON MY CHEST TO MY STOMACH TO MY HIPS AND THAN TO MY PRIVATE AREA. SHE IS JUST BLOWING AIR HARD WITH HER MOUTH. IT'S KINDA EROTIC AND A TURN ON. SHE THAN SLOWLY REACHES INTO MY PANTS WHILE BLOWING AIR ACROSS MY UNZIPPED PANTS AND.........dream ends.

 ( son.....of......a......bitch )

  WEDNESDAY     3 - 17 - 21

 A COUPLE MORE HOURS ON THE FRONT DOOR. MY MAIN GOAL IS TO MAKE IT LOOK LIKE I NEVER DID A SHITLOAD OF FRUSTRATING WORK TO IT. I AM CLOSE.

  SO , AFTER 3 DAYS I DECIDE TO SHOWER. JUST A COUPLE OF MINOR PROBLEMS :

 - GO TO BRUSH MY TEETH - NO TOOTH PASTE.

 - WANT TO SHAVE - NO SHAVING CREAM.

 - WANT TO SOAP UP IN SHOWER AND MASTURBATE LIKE A MONKEY - NO SOAP.

 GET DRESSED AND TAKE PUP TO DOG PARK. SHE HAS A BLAST UNTIL ONE DOG LITERALLY JUMPS THE FENCE FROM THE OUTSIDE INTO THE ENCLOSURE. I GOT TO ADMIT IT WAS PRETTY COOL HOW EASILY THE DOG JUMPED A 5 FOOT FENCE. NOT SO COOL WHEN HE BEGAN HUMPING MY DOG. THE OWNER GAVE HIS DOG A " TIME OUT "AND CHAINED HIM TO THE FENCE TO LET THE OTHER DOGS PLAY. HE APOLOGIZED 10 TIMES TO ME AND THE OTHER OWNERS. I WAS ALREADY THERE FOR 30 MINUTES AND FELT BAD FOR THE HORNY TIED UP DOG SO I LEFT IN 5 MINUTES SO HE COULD RUN AROUND AND HUMP SOME OTHER DOG.

 OFF TO ACME TO DO SOME SHOPPING. A NICE YOUNG INDIAN GIRL HELPS ME LOOK FOR SMOKE ALARM BATTERIES. SHE IS ADORABLE AND ASKS ME IF I LIKE TO DO SOMETHING WITH HER TONIGHT ON ST. PATTY'S DAY.

 THE ABOVE STATEMENT IS NOT ALL TRUE.

 OFF TO BUBBA'S - I PURCHASE SOME LIQUOR AND BEER. I AM A LITTLE PISSED ( NOT MUCH ) AT THE IGNORING WORKER. I BOUGHT A 12 PACK OF BLUE MOON. IT SAID " SPECIAL " $9.99. THAT IS A GOOD DEAL. I PURPOSELY WATCHED HER RING IT UP AND SHE CHARGED $17.99. YEP..........THE SIGN WAS WRONG......BLOW. I ASKED HER ABOUT THE SIGN BEING WRONG AND SHE REPLIED , " EH ".

 BACK HOME I WALK THE PUP. I STEP OVER A FENCE TO ACCESS THE BEACH AND LOOK AT THE OCEAN. MAN ARE THEY MOVING SAND..

 BACK HOME I MAKE A ROAST BEEF SANDWICH WITH TOMATO AND TOTALLY GO IN TO " WORK MODE ".

 WEDNESDAY FACETIMING. WE FACETIMED FOR ABOUT 40 MINUTES.

 I BEGIN 10 PROJECTS ALL AT ONCE. ALL ARE MINOR STUFF THAT NEED TO BE DONE AND SOME ARE TIME CONSUMING LIKE CHANGING A TINY LIGHT BULB IN THE BOTTOM OF A ENCASED LAMP. I WAS GLAD I DID THEM ALL. I DID NOT SPEND ANY TIME FINISHING THE FRONT DOOR BECAUSE IT WAS TOO FRUSTRATING. IT OPENS AND CLOSES NOW SO THAT IS VERY GOOD. TOMORROW I WILL WORK ON THE DOOR CLOSER. I F'N HATE STORM DOORS.

 IT IS 7PM. I WATCH ANOTHER EPISODE OF WORLD WAR II IN COLOUR AND FINISH THE SERIES THE AGE OF THE SAMURAI. I JUST SHAKE MY HEAD ON THESE BRUTAL DOCUMENTARIES.

 WITH MY PHONE I WATCH THE FLYERS LOSE 11 - 0. AT 5 - 0 I TURNED IT OFF AND WATCHED THE 76ERS. THE 76ERS HAVE A PERFECT 1ST HALF AND WERE UP I BELIEVE 80 POINTS. I SAID TO MYSELF THEY ARE GOING TO LOSE THIS GAME. THEY DO AND LOSE IN OVERTIME. THE 76ERS ACTUALLY TIED IT WITH A 3 POINTER WITH .4 SECONDS LEFT IN REGULATION WHICH WAS PRETTY COOL. THAN THEY GOT SMOKED IN OVERTIME........WORST EVER.

 I WATCH A MOVIE CALLED SPENCER CONFIDENTIAL WITH MARK WAHLBERG , ALAN ARKIN , AND A COMEDIAN ACTRESS NAMED ILIZA SCHLESINGER. TO ME THIS GIRL KINDA TOOK THE MOVIE OVER IN HER SMALL PART AS THE NEW YORK WICKED TONGUED HOT GIRLFRIEND. I ACTUALLY GOOGLED HER AND SHE WON BEST STAND UP AND PERFORMS TO SOLD OUT SHOWS. OH...........SHE IS A SMOKE SHOW WITH A DYNAMITE BODY. OVERALL , I THOUGHT THE MOVIE WAS OKAY TO GOOD.

 OFF TO BED. I THOUGHT THE PUP WENT INTO ANOTHER BEDROOM. I CHECK AND SHE WASN'T THERE. I GO INTO MY ROOM AND THERE SHE IS SPRAWLED OUT ACROSS MY PILLOWS. I SWEAR IF SHE HAD FINGERS SHE PUT MY C-PAP MASK AND USE THE TV REMOTE.

  THURSDAY       3 - 18 - 21

 ARE YOU F'N KIDDING ME ? WHAT A FUCKING ANGRY WORLD WE HAVE. AGAIN , A FUCKING LOWLIFE WHITE JERK-OFF 21 YEAR OLD ASSHOLE FUCKING SHOOTS UP 3 ASIAN SPA BUSINESSES. HE KILLED 8 PEOPLE.....6 WERE ASIAN. APPARENTLY THIS WAS SOME KIND OF FRUSTRATING SEXUAL THING. WHAT THE FUCK ? ASIANS ARE THE HOTTEST PEOPLE ON EARTH AND YOU FUCKING SHOOT THEM ? OH MY GOD.....I GIVE UP ON THIS SHITTY F'N PLANET. BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE SNUFFED OUT BECAUSE SOME GUY HAS A LITTLE DICK.  WHAT A SHITTY SHITTY WORLD.

 JESUS , WHERE DO I START FOR MY MEANINGLESS DAY WHEN 8 FAMILIES ARE SUFFERING IMMENSELY ?

  I WILL KEEP IT SIMPLE. THE ABOVE STORY JUST FUCKING PISSED ME OFF SO BAD.

 ANYWAY , BACK TO MY FAT LIFE OF BEING FAT.

 I MADE CHICKEN CUTLETS WHILE WATCHING POKER AFTER DARK ON PARAMOUNT. I DOWNLOADED THE CHANNEL TO MY ROKU.

 I WORKED ON A 15 SPEED BIKE FOR ABOUT 90 MINUTES. I DECIDE FLIPPING IT UPSIDE DOWN IS A TOTAL HASSLE. I TAKE IT OUTSIDE TO DO 3 TEST RIDES. EACH TIME I REALIZE I AM TOO FAT TO RIDE A BIKE ANYMORE. EACH TIME WAS IN THE RAIN. I FIXED THE GEAR BOX CABLE WHICH IS A SMALL WONDER.

 BEEN WALKING THE PUP AND SINCE NO ONE IS AROUND I HAVE BEEN DOING IT OFF-LEASH. SO FAR SO GOOD. I TOOK A VIDEO AND SENT IT TO WHEELS AND THE KIDS.

 THE DOG IS FUNNY TO WATCH. SHE IS SO ENTERTAINING. SHE ALSO LIKES TO SNUGGLE. I HAVE A BIG COUCH FOR HER WITH BLANKETS AND PILLOWS AND EVERY TIME SHE SNUGGLES WITH ME ON A SMALL LOVE SEAT. I HAVE MOVED HER AT LEAST 10 TIMES SO FAR. EACH TIME SHE WORKS HER WAY BACK TO LAYING BEHIND MY BACK.

 FIXED A TUB DRAIN AND A/C VENT ALONG WITH A SLIDING DOOR VERTICAL BLIND AND THE SLIDING SCREEN DOOR. WORKING OUTSIDE ON THE PATIO WAS NOT FUN IN THE COLD AND LAYING ON MY SIDE.

 I FIND IT DIFFICULT TO CLIMB STEPS WHICH KINDA BLOWS.

 NEXT I GO BACK TO THE F'N STORM DOOR. I SPEND ANOTHER 45 MINUTES WORKING ON SECURING , REPLACING THE TRIM KIT ALONG THE EDGES , AND ADJUSTING THE DOOR CLOSER. IT IS AS BEST AS IT WILL GET. I AM SATISFIED WITH IT AND I FEEL LIKE DRINKING AT 12:30PM.

 I TAKE A NAP SINCE I WAS UP AT 4AM. SO FROM 1PM TO 1:45PM ME AND THE PUP CRASH. I GET SO TIRED I COULD NOT EVEN KEEP MY EYES OPEN. AGAIN , BEING UP SINCE 4AM DOES NOT HELP. AFTER THE POWER NAP I WAS REFRESHED TO EAT.

 I MAKE A HAMBURGER AND HAVE 2 SMALL CHICKEN CUTLETS ON THE SIDE.

 I SEARCH FOR A CRAZY TOILET PART OVER 20 YEARS OLD. WE HAVE A KOHLER ONE PIECE TOILET AND THE PARTS INSIDE ARE SO WEIRD. I CALLED 3 DIFFERENT PLUMBING SUPPLY STORES.

 WALK THE PUP OFF LEASH AGAIN AND TAKE PICTURES OF THE HUGE SAND MOUNDS.

 BACK INSIDE I CLEAN OUT SEVERAL KITCHEN DRAWERS. MAN THEY LOOK LIKE ASS.

 I SETTLE IN AND THE RAIN DOES COME ALONG WITH THUNDER & LIGHTNING. IT IS A GOOD NIGHT JUST TO CHILL.

 I WATCH SOME MORE WORLD WAR II IN COLOUR. THIS STILL BLOWS MY MIND HOW PEOPLE DID THE MOST GRUESOME SHIT TO EACH OTHER......MOSTLY THE GERMANS ON JEWS. DOWNRIGHT DESPICABLE.

  I WATCH ANOTHER MOVIE CALLED HOME FRONT WITH KARATE ACTOR JASON STAHAM. IT ALSO STARRED JAMES FRANCO AND WINONA RYDER. AGAIN , EX-SUPER COP GOES OFF GRID TO PEACEFUL LIFE AFTER TRAUMATIC EXPERIENCE WITH KID AND BAD GUYS FIND HIM.  I LIKED IT.

 WIND DOWN WITH SOME BOOZE AND HANG OUT TO 1AM WATCHING TWO & A HALF MEN. A FUN SCENE WAS THE ACTORS WERE REVIEWING A SEX ORGY NIGHT AND NEITHER COULD REMEMBER IT SO THEY WATCHED VIDEO. IT ENDS UP JAMES FRANCO WAS IN THEIR BEDROOM. IT WAS CLEVER.

 OFF TO BED WITH THE PUP. SHE ALWAYS CRAWLS UNDER THE COMFORTERS....OF COURSE I LIFT THEM UP TO HELP.

  FRIDAY    3 - 19 - 21

 MY FIRST STORY IS FIXING A CRAZY SINGLE PIECE KOHLER TOILET. I CALL WEINSTEIN'S PLUMBING SUPPLY AND ONE GUY IS SUPER NICE AND HELPFUL. THERE ARE 3 TYPES OF THIS PRODUCT SO I DECIDE TO REMOVE THE FLUSH VALVE FROM OUR 2ND FLOOR TOILET. IT ACTUALLY COMES OUT SUPER EASY BUT I NOTICE SOMETHING IMPORTANT. IT CONNECTS WITHOUT CLIPS. I INQUIRED EARLIER TO THE NICE SALESMAN ABOUT HIS IN-STOCK VALVE THAT HAS CLIPS. I ALMOST HAD A SISTER-IN-LAW PICK IT UP FOR ME SINCE SHE WAS IN OCEAN CITY AND JUST MINUTES AWAY. I WOULD LATER MEET HER IN CAPE MAY FOR FOOD AND DRINKS AT HER WORK. BUT........I DECIDE TO CALL BACK JUST IN CASE.

 THE GUY I TALKED TO JUST 45 MINUTES AGO IS OUT ON DELIVERIES. I GET " MIKE " WHO PROCLAIMS THE FIRST GUY IS A GOOD PERSON AND ALL BUT HE HAS YEARS MORE EXPERIENCE OVER THIS DELIVERY WORKER. THE REST OF THE CONVERSATION IS HIM SHORTENING MY QUESTIONS AND TELLING ME HOW THE FIRST GUY IS TOTALLY WRONG AND I NEED THE EXACT SKU OR MODEL NUMBERS. WHEN I TELL HIM I HAVE ALL NUMBERS NEEDED HE JUST CUTS ME OFF MID-WORD EVERY FUCKING TIME. HE SAYS THEY DON'T MAKE THIS PRODUCT ANYMORE. HE REPEATED ANGRILY " THEY DON'T MAKE THIS PRODUCT ANYMORE. " SO IF I TOOK HIS ADVICE I WOULD NEED TO REPLACE MY WHOLE TOILET.

 I GOOGLE THE PRODUCT AND FIND TONS OF THEM ON HOME DEPOT AND LOWES WEBSITES....TONS !!! THE ONLY SMALL PROBLEM IS THEY ARE NOT IN STOCK. SO I ORDERED ONE. I TRIED 3 TIMES TO CALL BACK TO BITCH AT THE " EXPERIENCED " TECH MIKE  BUT THERE WAS NO ANSWER. I EVEN TRIED THE NEXT MORNING TO PUT MY 2 CENTS IN.....AGAIN NO ANSWER. AGAIN.....PEOPLE THINK THEIR FUCKING OPINIONS MEAN SO MUCH MORE THAN US LOW LIFE REGULARS.

 DROVE TO 2 PLUMBING SUPPLY STORES WITH MY OLD FLUSH VALVE IN A BAG. NEITHER COULD HELP OR MACGYVER. IT LOOKS LIKE I HAVE TO WAIT FOR MY NEW HOME DEPOT ONE TO COME IN. I AM STILL PISSED THIS EXPERT TECH MIKE FROM WEINSTEIN'S TOLD ME THEY JUST DO NOT MAKE THIS PRODUCT ANYMORE. PRETTY SURE MIKE IS A DICK.

 TAKE PUP TO THE DOG PARK. IT IS COLD AND I AM GLAD I BROUGHT MY GLOVES. THE DOG HAS AN ABSOLUTE BLAST. I ALSO MEET A NICE NURSE WHO I HOOK UP WITH A ROOFER. WE ALSO TALK COVID AND SHE IS A FRONT LINE WORKER. IT WAS A NICE CONVERSATION ABOUT THE WHOLE ORDEAL OF THIS VIRUS.

 BACK HOME FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE STRIKES AGAIN. I FOUND A REALLY NICE WHITE COFFEE TABLE. THE PERSON RESPONDING ALWAYS TAKES 2 DAYS TO RESPOND. I FOUND THROUGH EXPERIENCE RESPONDING LIGHTNING FAST GIVES YOU THE BEST CHANCE FOR WHATEVER PRODUCT YOU'RE INTERESTED IN. TO ME , IT IS KEY. OF COURSE SHE RESPONDS AS I WALK IN THE FRONT DOOR , " I WILL PUT THE TABLE OUT AT PINE STREET AND OCEAN AVENUE. WHY DOES THIS SUCK  ? THE DOG PARK IS LITERALLY 3 BLOCKS AWAY AND I WAS JUST F'N THERE. I DRIVE TO PINE AND OCEAN AND DON'T SEE IT. I MESSAGE THE GUY. LUCKILY HE MESSAGES ME QUICKLY AND GIVES ME AN ADDRESS.....3/4'S OF A BLOCK A WAY. WHY THE FUCK WOULD YOU GIVE ME THE CORNER OF 2 STREETS WHEN THE TABLE IS A BLOCK AWAY ? I HATE PEOPLE.

 I RETURN HOME AND PLACE THE COFFEE TABLE OUTSIDE THE FRONT DOOR. I STARTED AN INTERNET POKER GAME AND WANTED TO SEE IF I WAS STILL IN IT AFTER BEING GONE FOR 15 MINUTES. I WAS THE CHIP LEADER WHEN I LEFT BUT NOW I AM LAST OF 4 PLAYERS WITH ONLY $180 IN CHIPS. THE OTHER 3 PLAYERS HAVE OVER $2,000 IN CHIPS EACH. THE TOP 3 " CASH ". I SIT AND PLAY WHAT I THINK WILL ONLY BE A HAND OR TWO UNTIL I LOSE. WELP.........I STORM BACK AND WIN. A GOOD FEELING THAT MEANS ABSOLUTELY ZERO IN LIFE.   ONE PLAYER WROTE IN THE CHAT , AFTER I ELIMINATED HIM , " I BET YOUR FAT ".

 TALK TO WHEELS ABOUT A BEST FRIEND'S KID GETTING OPERATED ON. I WAS SO NERVOUS FOR THIS YOUNG KID'S SURGERY. IN ALL , SO FAR , EVERYTHING CAME OUT VERY GOOD.

 I BRING THE COFFEE TABLE INSIDE AND GIVE IT A LOOK OVER. I USE MY SCREW GUN AND A SPECIAL BIT TO TIGHTEN ALL LEGS. I ALSO SPEND ABOUT 10 MINUTES TOTALLY CLEANING THE TABLE BOTH TOP AND BOTTOM. I THAN SEND PICTURES TO WHEELS AND THE KIDS TO CHOOSE......THIS WHITE TABLE OR THE YELLOW EXISTING GLASS TABLE. IT WAS A 4 - 0 VOTE........THE " NEW " WHITE TABLE WILL REPLACE OLD YELLER.

 STILL SHAKING MY HEAD ON THE ASIAN SHOOTING BY AN ASSHOLE WHITE KID. ONE FAMILY STARTED A GOFUND ME PAGE AND IT HAS ALREADY REACHED OVER 2 MILLION DOLLARS. THIS IS SO DAMN SUPER SAD. SO MANY ANGRY PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO REALLY DON'T REALIZE HOW GOOD THEY HAVE IT. THEY CONSTANTLY COMPLAIN ABOUT LIFE AND OTHERS. I SEE THIS ON A DAY TO DAY BASIS IN MY LIFE.

 SPEAKING OF SHOOTING. GET THIS ONE.......MOM ASKS HER 13 YEAR OLD SON TO GO GET HER GUN IN THE CAR. THE KID GETS IT AND COMES INSIDE AND POINTS IT AT HIS 12 YEAR OLD SISTER. TRY TO GUESS WHAT HAPPENS NEXT ? IT FUCKING DISCHARGES AND HE KILLS THE SISTER............JESUS CHRIST.

 NEIGHBORS INVITE ME TO DINNER AT A LOCAL PUB AND DRINKS. I MUST BE GETTING OLD AND FAT BECAUSE I ENDED UP STAYING IN FOR THE NIGHT. SINCE I GET UP SO DAMN EARLY IN THE WEE HOURS BY 9PM I AM EXHAUSTED.

 IN THE AFTERNOON , WHILE CLEANING , I DID WATCH THE MOVIE THE EXPENDABLES AND TONIGHT WAS THE EXPENDABLES 2. I HAVE TO ADMIT THERE IS A SHIT LOAD OF HUGE STARS IN IT. THE MOVIE IS WHAT YOU EXPECT BUT I FOUND IT OKAY. THE ACTORS IS A WHO'S WHO STARTING WITH SYLVESTER STALLONE , ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER , JASON STATHAM , JET LI , DOLPH LUNDGREM , TERRY CREWS , MICKEY ROURKE ( ACTUALLY DOES A DECENT JOB ) , STEVE AUSTIN , ERIC ROBERTS , BRUCE WILLIS , WESLEY SNIPES , ANTONIO BANDARAS , KELSEY GRAMMER............IT IS FRIGGIN' ENDLESS. STALLONE PUT THE MOVIE TOGETHER AND HAS CREATIVE CONTROL BUT HE WAS SMART PUTTING TOGETHER HUGE NAMES FOR A SIMPLE MOVIE. OF COURSE IT WAS CHEESY WHEN OLD LINES FROM OTHER MOVIES WERE MADE LIKE " I'LL BE BACK " AND " GET TO THE CHOPPER ".

 FOLLOWED THE LOCAL TEAMS IN THE NCAA TOURNAMENT. 2 WERE GOOD AND 1 NOT SO GOOD. DREXEL LOST BY 29 POINTS AND IT WAS NOT EVEN A CONTEST AFTER THE 1ST 5 MINUTES. RUTGERS WITH A SEMI-UPSET WIN AND VILLANOVA WITH A  OPENING ROUND WIN EVEN WHEN DOWN STARTING PLAYERS. VEGAS STILL HAD THEM AS HEAVY FAVORITES EVEN THOUGH WINTHROP WAS 23 - 1. I NEVER WATCHED ANY OF THE GAME BECAUSE IT STARTED WAY PAST MY BED TIME OF 11PM. I DID GOOGLE WINTHROP ( WHO ? )  AND WHO THEY PLAYED. I SAW UPPER DARBY AND HAVERFORD ON THEIR SCHEDULED WINS OF THE SEASON. YEP.....'NOVA HAD THE LEAD AND WON EASILY OVER THIS DIVISION 3-LIKE TEAM.

 ENDED MY NIGHT WALKING THE PUP IN THE COLD. TEMPS ARE SUPPOSE TO GET BETTER TOMORROW AND ALL NEXT WEEK.

 I END THE NIGHT DOWNLOADING THE PEACOCK STATION TO MY " NEW " ROKU. I WATCH SOME POKER AFTER DARK  WITH SOME OLD SCHOOL PLAYERS. IT WAS SEMI-ENTERTAINING.

 OFF TO BED AND WATCH TWO AND A HALF MEN FOR LIKE 5 MINUTES. THE PUP IS TOTALLY PASSED OUT ON THE COUCH AND COVERED WITH BLANKETS AND PILLOWS. WHEN MY TV WENT OFF SHE WAS IN MY ROOM AND UNDER THE BLANKETS WITH ME IN 2 MINUTES. I LIFTED THE COMFORTER UP AND SHE GOES UNDER. SHE SPINS AND NESTLED AGAINST MY BUTT WITH HER BODY ALONG MY BACK AND HER HEAD RIGHT BEHIND MY NECK. IT WAS ACTUALLY NICE TO HAVE A WARM BODY SNUGGLE TO ME. I DON'T GET SNUGGLING ANYMORE.

 ELDEST TEXTS ME LATE NIGHT. I KNOW THIS MEANS ONE THING...MAYBE TWO. MONEY OR BOOZE. I WAS RIGHT.

  SATURDAY     3 - 20 - 21

 OK , WHO PUNCHED ME IN THE BACK OF MY HEAD ? 

  START DAY OUT CLEANING AN OLDER FLUSH VALVE GASKET. I ORDERED A NEW ONE TO BE DELIVERED IN 10 DAYS. THE FUNNY THING IS...........I THINK CLEANING THE OLD ONE WORKED.

  DID SOME OTHER LITTLE PROJECTS. MOST OF THEM CLEANING AND CONSOLIDATING.

  OFF TO THE DOG PARK. THE WEATHER TURNED A LITTLE NICER AND MAN DID IT BRING OUT THE DOGS AND OWNERS. THERE HAD TO BE 25 DOGS THERE. SO , 4 QUICK STORIES.

 1 - ONE OWNER WANTED NO OTHER DOGS NEAR HER CORGI DOG. THIS IS AN IMPOSSIBLE TASK WITH 25 DOGS IN THE ENCLOSURE.  SHE STARTED YELLING AT PEOPLE TO GET THEIR DOGS AWAY FROM HERS. ONE OLDER GUY FREAKED OUT AND SAID , " YOU AND YOUR FUCKING DOG GET THE HELL OUT OF HERE NOW !!! " I AGREED WITH HIM.

 2 - AN OLDER COUPLE DECIDES TO BRING FOOD INTO THE ENCLOSURE. THIS IS STUPID WITH 25 F'N DOGS. OF COURSE MY MAZE WAS ONE OF THE FIRST TO INVESTIGATE THEIR HOAGIES.

 3 - A PIECE OF ASS GIRL IN SPANDEX BRINGS A TINY LITTLE PUPPY INTO THE ENCLOSURE. MANY DOGS  WERE BEATING UP ON THIS TINY THING. THAN ONE BIG ASS DOG PINNED AND PUT HIS MOUTH AROUND THE PUPPY'S NECK. 5 OWNERS CONVERGED AND BROKE IT UP. THE GIRL WAS FLUSTERED AND LEFT TO THE " SMALL " DOG AREA.........WHICH SHE SHOULD OF BEEN IN THE FIRST PLACE.

 4 - WALKING TO MY VAN I SEE THE SAME PIECE OF ASS GIRL. SHE TELLS ME SHE HAS HER LITTLE TINY DOG ON THE BIG SIDE ALL THE TIME. I REPLIED , " THERE WAS A LOT OF DOGS TODAY THOUGH. " SHE SCUFFED AND MOVED ON. THERE IS NO WAY THAT LITTLE DOG SHOULD OF BEEN IN THERE.

 BACK HOME MY BROTHER AND I DECIDE TO EXCHANGE ACCOUNTS. MY HULU FOR HIS DISNEY +.  HE HAD A FUNNY TEXT AND WROTE , " WAIT , YOU WANT TO TRADE MY FIRST ROUND PICK FOR YOUR 3RD ROUND ? "

 I MAKE SOME CHICKEN CUTLETS FOR DINNER AND CHILLED. I WATCH SOME POKER AFTER NIGHT. IT WAS GOOD AS AMATEURS PLAYED PRO'S. I ALSO WATCHED ONE OF THE BETTER JASON STATHAM MOVIES CALLED REDEMPTION. I LIKE IT WAS GOOD TO PRETTY GOOD.

 NEIGHBORS INVITE ME TO DINNER AND WE HEAD TO THE INLET. AGAIN , SLIGHTLY WARMER TEMPS BROUGHT OUT A TON OF PEOPLE. THEY ARE REGULARS SO I GOT TO MEET A LOT OF BARTENDERS. ONE ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE SMOKE SHOW FEMALE BARTENDER DRIVES FROM PHILLY TO NORTH WILDWOOD FOR HER SHIFTS. MY FRIENDS TALKED VERY HIGHLY OF HER. I TOLD HER I JUST HAD AN EVERY OTHER FRIDAY NIGHT SHIFT OPEN IF SHE LIKE IT. SHE SAID , " ABSOLUTELY !! ". I THINK I JUST MADE THE NAIL ALOT PRETTIER...........WHEN WE RE-OPEN.

 THE INLET ALWAYS HAS GOOD FOOD , BIG PORTIONS , AND GOOD BARTENDERS. IT REALLY IS A FUN PLACE TO GO. I DON'T LIKE THEIR NO DANCING OR SINGING RULE BUT I GUESS DURING THIS COVID TIME IT MAKES A LITTLE SENSE. THEY ALSO OFFER A DOUBLE YOUR MONEY CREDIT CARD. IF YOU GIVE $100 THEY CREDIT A $100.....AND SO ON.

 THE GIRL BARTENDER AND OUR FRIEND TALKING ABOUT VAGINAS. THIS WAS NOT A GOOD TIME FOR MY MALE FRIEND TO GO TO THE BATHROOM.

  I ORDERED WINGS BUT ONLY ATE HALF. THE OTHER HALF WILL BE FOR TOMORROW.

 ROLL HOME AND WE WALK OUR DOGS. THAN I WALK OVER TO THEIR CONDO. I INTRODUCE THEM TO " THE STILETTO ". THIS IS CROWN ROYAL MIXED AMARETTO. THEY SEEM TO LIKE THEM AND SO DID I BECAUSE I THINK I DRANK 10 OF THEM. I SO PAID FOR THIS THE NEXT MORNING. ONE OF MY WORST HANGOVERS I EVER HAD IN A LONG LONG TIME.

 THE NEXT MORNING I DRANK WATER AND SHOWERED WITH LOTS OF STEAM UNTIL THE HOT WATER RAN OUT. I FELT LIKE I TOOK A RABBIT PUNCH BY HULK HOGAN.

 I HAD A DREAM MY DOG WAS WALKING INTO A NEST OF 7 ALLIGATORS. THEY WERE MID-SIZE BUT EASILY 4-5 FEET LONG AND WOULD EASILY KILL MY PUP. I SAW 2 AT FIRST BUT THEY WERE SO WELL HIDDEN I LOOKED HARDER AND SAW 5 MORE. I WAS FREAKING OUT TO GET MY DOG OUT OF THERE.......no dreams.

  MONDAY      3 - 21 - 21

 WHEELS - " YOU SHOULD COME HOME ".

 ME - " I DON'T WANT TO COME HOME ".

 MAJOR LEAK AND HEAT SHUTS DOWN IN OUR HOME. YEP.....GUESS I SHOULD COME HOME.

 SO MAJOR I DON'T EVEN HAVE TIME TO WRITE THIS BLOG.

 TUESDAY    3 - 22 - 21

 THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU GET MAD AT ?.....KIDS , SPORTS , WIFE , HUSBAND , AND SOME REALLY STUPID STUPID SHIT THAT EVEN TO YOURSELF YOU HAVE TO SAY , " WOW , I AM AN ASSHOLE AND GET MAD AT THE STUPIDEST STUFF ? " WHY AM I WRITING THIS ? DID YOU SEE THE NEWS REPORT OF A COLORADO SHOOTING AT A SUPERMARKET WHERE PEOPLE LIE DEAD IN THE PARKING LOT ? OH MY GOD WHAT A FUCKING WORLD !!!  10 PEOPLE WERE SHOT AND KILLED INCLUDING A POLICE OFFICER. THINK ABOUT THAT THE NEXT TIME SHOPPING AT YOUR LOCAL GIANT OR ACME WHERE YOUR LOVED ONES WERE MURDERED AND YOU GOT MAD EARLIER BECAUSE THEY DID NOT BRING HOME APPLE SAUCE OR F'N WHATEVER.

 NOW , TO MY LIFE. IT IS MEANINGLESS IN THE BIG PICTURE.

 GOD , BUDDHA , LUCK , OR WHOEVER OR WHATEVER YOU BELIEVE IN WAS DEFINITELY ON WHEELS SIDE....EVERY TIME I DISAGREE WITH HER. HE ( OR SHE ) MAKES HER HAPPY WHILE I GET THE OPPOSITE. NOW , FOR 30 YEARS I CAN NOT REMEMBER EVER GETTING IN A SERIOUS ARGUMENT OR ACTUALLY WINNING ONE EITHER BUT TODAY KARMA WAS ON HER SIDE .........AGAIN. OH IT ENDED UP A REALLY FUN DAY THOUGH.........AS USUAL.

 SO I CONTINUE TO TELL WHEELS I REALLY LIKE TO STAY HERE AT THE SEASHORE MOSTLY BECAUSE TEMPERATURES ARE GOING UP. LAST NIGHT I SAID TO MYSELF , " MONDAY , I AM DOING NOTHING BUT WATCHING TV , PLAYING POKER , GOING TO DAIRY QUEEN , AND TAKING MAZE TO THE DOG PARK. " THIS IS CHRIS DAY TO GET MORE FATTER......AND NO ONE WILL STOP ME !!!!

 OUR YOUNGEST IS LOOKING AT AN APARTMENT AT 7PM MONDAY NIGHT. SHE REALLY REALLY WANTS ME TO GO TO CHECK IT OUT SINCE I KINDA KNOW ABOUT CONSTRUCTION. I TELL HER I KNOW THIS STYLE OF HOUSE SHE IS LOOKING AT AND I WANT TO STAY PUT HERE AT THE BEACH. FOR 2 WEEKS SHE TRIES TO CONVINCE ME BUT I STAND FIRM.

 WHEELS TRIES TO CONVINCE ME TO COME HOME ON SUNDAY NIGHT. I STAND FIRM. THAN THE STARS , MYSTICAL FORCES , YODA , AND LUCK ALL DECIDE TO STEP IN AND BEND CHRIS OVER. HERE IS HOW MY PLANS OF " CHRIS DAY "  ABSOLUTELY CHANGED ON A FRICKIN' DIME. I AM TALKING I HAD TO LEAVE WITHIN MINUTES. 

 THE STORY :

 - AT 3:45AM SUNDAY I RECEIVE AN EMAIL WITH A VIDEO IN IT. IT IS WAS MY ELDEST SENDING ME A VIDEO OF OUR HEATER'S EXPANSION TANK IN THE CEILING OF OUR BASEMENT CLOSET LEAKING. THE BOTTOM WAS RUSTED THROUGH AND WATER WAS COMING OUT....SLOWLY AT FIRST BUT STEADY.

 - IT IS 7AM AND I TEXT MY ELDEST IMMEDIATELY IF SHE IS UP.  SHE IS. I CALL HER AND MY FIRST WORDS WERE , " PLEASE TELL ME , FOR THE LOVE OF GOD , YOU PUT PLASTIC BINS UNDER THE LEAKS AND TOOK SOME STUFF OUT OF THE ROOM SO THEY DO NOT GET WET....PLEASE TELL ME YOU DID THIS ? " I HEARD SILENCE.

 - WHEELS IS NOW UP AND I HAVE BOTH OF THEM USE FACETIME TO SHOW ME THE WATER DAMAGE AND THEY BEGIN TO SHUT DOWN THE MAIN WATER , TURN ANY SHUT-OFF VALVES OFF , DRAIN THE EXPANSION TANK WITH A HOSE , AND MOVE ANY BELONGINGS OUT OF THE CLOSET. IT IS A COMPLETE SHIT SHOW OF WATER ON THE FLOOR BY 7:30PM. IF ONLY MY KID PLACED SOME LARGE PLASTIC BINS UNDER THE LEAK WHEN SHE SAW IT AT 3:45AM ABOUT 90% OF THIS NIGHTMARE JOB WOULD OF BEEN AVOIDED. THEY DO EVERYTHING I ASK AND I NOW MUST HEAD HOME IMMEDIATELY.

 - I LEAVE 90% OF THE STUFF AT OUR CONDO AND LOAD UP MY TOOLS AND THE PUP. I GET ON THE ROAD AND I AM HOME BY 10:30AM. EARLIER I TEXTED A PLUMBING BUDDY WHO JUST HAPPEN TO HAVE OFF TODAY AND MEETS ME AT 10:30AM AT OUR HOUSE. THIS IS A SMALL MIRACLE. AFTER INSPECTING, HE NEEDS TO TAKE A RIDE TO 3 DIFFERENT PLACES WHILE WHEELS AND I DO A MAJOR REMOVAL OF CARPET TILES AND MORE TO AIR OUT THE ROOMS.

 - WE USE A LARGE WET/DRY VAC TO SUCK UP WATER , USE LARGE PLASTIC BINS TO LOAD UP SOAKED CARPET TILES , SET UP FANS , AND OPEN WINDOWS & DOORS. WHAT A PREDICAMENT. I KEEP THINKING AND SAYING ON OCCASION , IF ONLY MY KID PLACED BINS UNDER THE LEAKS ALL OF THIS WOULD OF BEEN AVOIDED. BUT I AM NOT SUPER PISSED AND WE JUST START THE CLEAN UP.

  - MY FRIEND ARRIVES AND WITHIN 45 MINUTES WE HAVE A NEW EXPANSION TANK INSTALLED AND THE OLD ONE I JUST LEAVE HANGING IN THE CEILING BETWEEN 2 JOISTS.

 - OUR FRIEND " BOO " ROLLS OUT AND WHEELS AND I BRING UP ABOUT 60 CARPET TILES FROM THE BASEMENT AND SPREAD THEM OUT IN THE DRIVEWAY TO DRY OUT.

 THE FUNNY THING IS WHEN I INSTALLED A 2ND SUMP PUMP IN THE BASEMENT I SAID , " WE ARE SO PREPARED NOW FOR THE NEXT TIME WATER GETS IN OUR BASEMENT. " YEP.....I HAD RAIN COVERED BUT NOT RUSTY EXPANSION TANKS.

 SO OTHER STUFF DONE THE LAST 2 DAYS.

 IT IS 4 STRAIGHT DAYS OF TRYING TO GET A POKER STARS DEPOSIT TO PLAY " REAL " MONEY GAMES. FOUR F'N DAYS AND STILL NO CONFIRMATION.  ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE THE AMOUNT OF DOCUMENTATION YOU NEED TO PLAY FOR REAL MONEY. TOTAL SHIT SHOW.

 WE FIND OUT A DOG DIED OF COMPLICATIONS AT THE DOG PARK. THIS IS TRAGIC NEWS FOR THE OWNERS AND IF I DID NOT DRIVE HOME I MAY HAVE BEEN THERE FOR IT. ANOTHER HEART BREAK AND IT REMINDS ME AGAIN NOT TO GET TOO MAD OVER STUPID SHIT IN LIFE......LIKE A BASEMENT BEING FLOODED BIG TIME.

 FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE STRIKES AGAIN.  IN NEW JERSEY I PICK UP POTS & PANS. GET THIS, THEY INSTALLED A NEW KITCHEN AND THE POTS & PANS DID NOT MATCH THE NEW MOTIF.......LOL. BACK HOME , I HAND SCRUB THEM THAN PUT THEM THROUGH THE DISHWASHER TO CLEAN AND STEAM. WHEN I FIRST ARRIVED HERE I SAID TO MYSELF WE ARE A HAIR SHORT ON POTS & PANS. WELP.....NOT ANYMORE.

 SO NOW THE BIG STORY FOR US AT LEAST. I AM NOW GOING TO CENTER CITY TO VISIT OUR YOUNGEST AND HER APARTMENT. THIS WAS FUN AND HERE IS WHAT I DID TO MAKE IT MORE FUN. BEST.....DAD.....EVER.

 - AT 4:30PM WHEELS , ELDEST , AND MYSELF DRIVE TO CENTER CITY. OUR YOUNGEST IS STILL BUMMING " DADDY " IS NOT COMING TO SEE HER POTENTIAL NEW APARTMENT. WE TEXT HER WE ARE ON OUR WAY.

 - ONE BLOCK AWAY I STOP IN A TINY SIDE STREET. I ASK WHEELS AND OUR ELDEST , " DO YOU KNOW WHAT A CHINESE FIRE DRILL IS ? SO , TO SURPRISE MY YOUNGEST I HIDE IN THE BACK TRUNK AREA. WHEELS DRIVES AND OUR ELDEST TAKES SHOT GUN. I PLACE 2 BLACK JACKETS OVER ME TO CONCEAL A LITTLE BETTER. THOUGH IT IS LIKE TRYING TO HIDE AN ELEPHANT BEHIND A FIRE HYDRANT.

 - I ASK MY ELDEST TO VIDEO IT. WHEN OUR YOUNGEST GETS IN BACK SEAT I AM COVERED IN JACKETS RIGHT BEHIND HER. I HEAR MY ELDEST SAY TO HER, ' DAD WANTS ME TO TAKE A PICTURE OF YOU AND SEND IT TO HIM ALONG WITH FACETIMING WHEN WE SEE THE THE APARTMENT. " THIS WAS MY SIGNAL TO SURPRISE HER. I SPIN UP SIDEWAYS AND HUG HER FROM BEHIND YELLING OUT " HA !! HA !! I'M HERE !!!! ". SHE IS BLOWN AWAY AND SUPER HAPPY. SHE GIGGLES NON STOP FOR 5 MINUTES WHILE I MAKE JOKES.

 - WE DRIVE AROUND TO FIND PARKING TO EAT AT A WONDERFUL GREEK RESTAURANT CALLED MOUSTAKI. WE CAN'T FIND A SPOT AND DRIVE AROUND BLOCKS FOR 10 MINUTES. THAN I SAY , " LOOK , I WILL JUST DROP YOU OFF AT THE FRONT DOOR AND GO PARK SOME WHERE. DON'T YOU KNOW THERE IS A SPOT RIGHT OUT FRONT.

 - 3 ROOM MATES JOIN US FOR DINNER AND THE FOOD WAS EXCELLENT ALONG WITH SERVICE AND PRICE. $64 FOR EVERYTHING. THIS IS TRULY GENUINE GREEK FOOD AND IT IS PHENOMENAL. WE HAD LAMB GYRO'S ( PRONOUNCED CORRECTLY " GEY - ROW "...NOT JIE-ROW , NOT GERE-ROW BUT " GEY-ROW " ALONG WITH VERY GOOD THIN CRUSTED PIZZA , EGG PLANT AND HUMMUS DIPS , SOUVLAKI , AND MORE. IT WAS REALLY REALLY GOOD.

 - WE HAVE 2 TABLES AND WHEN DONE EATING I ASK MY YOUNGEST TO SIT WITH HER SISTER AND WHEELS WHILE I SIT WITH HER FRIENDS.....LET THE JOKE SHOW BEGIN. I PLAYED WITH HER FRIENDS , ASKED QUESTIONS , AND MADE MANY JOKES AS MY YOUNGEST SQUIRMED AT THE OTHER TABLE SAYING , " OH GOD , DAD IS DOING IT AGAIN. " HER SISTER SAYS , " I WILL BE YOU LOOK OUT " SINCE SHE WAS FACING OUR TABLE.

 - WHEN I STARTED SINGING MY WEDDING SONG TO THE ROOM MATES THE LOOKS ON WHEELS AND MY 2 KIDS FACES WAS PRICELESS. I HAD THE ROOM MATES LAUGHING FOR AT LEAST 25 MINUTES STRAIGHT. IT WAS AWESOME AND REALLY IT WAS MY WAY OF GETTING TO KNOW WHO OUR KID WOULD BE ROOMING WITH.

 - I CONVINCE ALL THE GIRLS TO GO WITH US TO VISIT THE POTENTIAL APARTMENT. SO WE PACK IN 7 PEOPLE AND HEAD TO THE APARTMENT.

 - AT THE APARTMENT WE ARE INTRODUCE TO 2 COLLEGE KID RENTERS LIVING THERE NOW. ONE GUY IS OVER THE TOP SUPER NICE AND ANSWERS EVERY QUESTION. THE OTHER GUY CLOSES HIS DOOR AND HIDES FROM US. THEY HAVE BOOZE , POT , AND CONDOMS LAYING AROUND WITH 4 BEAUTIFUL GIRLS IN THE HOUSE. YOU THINK THE ANGRY GUY WOULD BE A LITTLE NICE. AGAIN , I GUESS IT IS JUST IN PEOPLES D.N.A. TO ALWAYS BE ANGRY IN LIFE. AS A JOKE I WAS GOING TO TURN OFF THEIR HOT WATER HEATER BUT MY YOUNGEST SAID NOT TOO.

 - ANYWAY , THE PRO'S OUTWEIGH THE CONS BY 20 - 1. LOCATION , NEIGHBORHOOD , COMMUNITY ,  ANNUAL STREET PARTY , AND THE SHERIFF STATION AT THE END OF THE BLOCK MAKES WHEELS AND I FEEL BETTER. PLUS , WHEELS WORKED ACROSS THE STREET FOR 10 YEARS AND KNOWS THIS AREA WELL. I TALK TO THE REALLY NICE DREXEL STUDENT ROOM MATE AND INSPECT THE WASHER , DRYER , ELECTRIC PANEL BOX , WATER PRESSURE , AND MORE. ALL ARE NEW FOR THE MOST PART. THE HOUSE IS NO DOUBT EXACTLY HOW I WAS EXPECTING.....SMALL AND TIGHT EVERYWHERE. AND YES , THERE COULD BE UPDATING THINGS LIKE THE BACK YARD FENCE. BUT OVERALL , IT IS THE LOCATION AND ALL OF US AGREE THIS IS THE PLACE FOR NEXT SEMESTER.

 - IT IS A TINY TINY STREET AND YOU LITERALLY NEED TO PARK HALF ON THE SIDEWALK BUT WE LIKE IT. ALSO , A PIZZA PLACE ON THE CORNER HELPS TOO. EVERYTHING YOU COULD POSSIBLY NEED IS WALKING DISTANCE INCLUDING THEIR COLLEGE.

 WE LOAD UP AND WE DROP THE KIDS OFF. THEY ARE ADORABLE AND SO FUN. MY YOUNGEST THANKS ME. WE SAY OUR GOOD BYE AN DI SHOULD OF TOOK A GROUP PICTURE.

 QUICK FUNNY STORY - WE ARE PLAYING A FUN SONG ON THE 3 MINUTE RIDE HOME. IT WAS DEAN MARTINS " THAT'S AMORE ". I AM BLASTING IT OUT THE WINDOWS AS WE GET OUT TO SAY OUR GOOD BYES. AS I GET OUT OF THE CAR I SCREAM IN BROKEN ITALIAN ENGLISH , " EVERYONE SHOULD BE ITALIAN FOR JUST ONE DAY !!!! "  A MAN PUTTING A TRASH CAN OUT STARTS SINGING WITH US.

 WE ROLL HOME AND SETTLE IN. OUR ELDEST HEADS TO A FRIENDS HOUSE WHILE WHEELS AND I WATCH AMERICAN IDOL AND DIRK GENTLY. BOTH WERE VERY GOOD. OH , WE ALSO WATCH THE FLYERS LOSE IN OVERTIME.....BLOW.

 I WALK THE PUP AND HEAD TO BED. I LISTEN TO A CALMING CASSETTE TAPE AND FALL ASLEEP. LATER THE PUP JOINED ME. SHE DID LEAVE AND JOIN MY ELDEST UPSTAIRS AROUND 3AM. IT DID SUCK WAKING UP SEVERAL TIMES TO USE THE BATHROOM AND JUST WAKING UP. I RE-SET THE CALMING CASSETTE AT LEAST 3 TIMES DURING THE NIGHT.

  TUESDAY     3 - 23 - 21

 THESE MASS SHOOTINGS ARE JUST SICKENING. NOW A CAR RUNS INTO PEOPLE PROTESTING HATE ON ASIANS. I JUST DON'T GET HOW PEOPLE ARE SO ANGRY DAY AFTER DAY. WHAT A SHIT LIFE. SMALL MINDED PEOPLE ACTUALLY THINK THE WHOLE CAUSE OF THIS CORONA VIRUS IS ASIAN AMERICANS IN OUR COUNTRY. I COULD POSSIBLY BE SWAYED THAT THE CHINA GOVERNMENT COULD OF HELPED A LITTLE MORE BUT TO BLAME A CHINESE PERSON WALKING OUR STREET IN CHINATOWN IS JUST DOWNRIGHT STUPID. WE ARE A VERY VERY STUPID COUNTRY.  GO TRUMP !!!

 BIDEN CALLS FOR FULL BAN ON ASSAULT AND AUTOMATIC WEAPONS. WHAT A FUCKING ASSHOLE  !! I HAVE THE RIGHT TO OWN AK-47'S , GRENADE LAUNCHERS , AND TANK BUSTERS !!!! IT IS MY RIGHT !!!!  GO TRUMP !!

  START BEAUTIFUL DAY FLIPPING CARPET TILES ON OUR DRIVEWAY. LITTLE DID I KNOW IT RAINED OVER NIGHT......BLOW.

 WE TOOK SOME TIME TO APPLY FOR A DELCO STRONG GRANT AGAIN. I NEVER REALIZED HOW HARD CHANGING A FILE TO P.D.F. STYLE IS. WE ACTUALLY HAD TO DOWNLOAD A HUGE ADOBE FILE AND USE IT. IT IS A FREE 7 DAY TRIAL.

 POKER STARS ASKS ME FOR AN OPINION ON HOW THEIR SERVICE WAS WHEN TRYING TO DEPOSIT $100 TO PLAY " REAL " MONEY. AFTER 5 DAYS OF GOING BACK AND FORTH WITH MORE DOCUMENTATION THAN MY ACCOUNTANT HAS I GAVE UP. I WROTE BACK , " YOU REALLY DON'T WANT MY OPINION ".

 WE REMOVE ALOT OF OLD AND NOW WET PICTURES FROM OUR BASEMENT TO BE TRASHED. THREE OF 12 AND A JUG WERE PLACED ON OUR CURB. ALL WERE TAKEN IN LESS THAN 3 HOURS. SEE.........I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO LIKES FREE STUFF.

 SATURDAY - HAMMERSHEEP - 4PM AT THE NAIL.

 SUNDAY - MIDHEAVEN - 6PM AT THE NAIL ( CLOSED AUDIENCE ).

 FACEBOOK MARKETPLACE STRIKES AGAIN. WE TAKE A RIDE ABOUT 3 MILES FOR MORE WORK SHOP CEILING LIGHTS. THESE ARE OLDER MODELS THAT WORK BUT ARE REALLY HEAVY. I WILL TEST THEM AND MAY TRASH THEM. I WILL SEE. OH I FORGOT I GOT A VACUUM TOO WHEN AT THE SEA SHORE.

 BOOKED SOME MORE RENTERS FOR THE MOUNTAIN HOUSE.....VIA FACEBOOK.

 WE RE-ARRANGE MY BEDROOM OFFICE AND SET-UP MY NEW ROKU. I FOUND OUT THE OLD OWNER HAD PEACOCK AND OUR SHARED ACCOUNT WITH A FAMILY MEMBER HAS PARAMOUNT AND HBO MAX. I SET UP AT LEAST 4 ACCOUNTS TODAY. I FREAKING LOVE ROKU. I MAY GET RID OF CABLE ENTIRELY.

  AS A TRIAL I WATCHED FURIOUS FIVE. THIS SERIES GOT BETTER BECAUSE THEY ADDED THE ROCK AND THE  WONDER WOMAN ACTRESS GAL GADOT AGAIN. SHE WAS PARADING AROUND IN A MINI BIKINI. OH MY GOD SHE WAS A TOTAL SMOKE SHOW 22 YEARS AGO.....JESUS H CHRISTMAS. I WATCHED THE ENTIRE MOVIE WITH MY PANTS AT MY ANKLES.

 LOADED THE VAN WITH SOME TRASH FROM OUR BASEMENT.

 ORDERED BOOZE.

 WHEELS AND ELDEST GO FOR  A LONG WALK WITH FRIENDS OUT IN THE BERWYN AREA. ELDEST GETS TO SEE A PUPPY.

 LEFTOVER GREEK PIZZA AND HUMMUS WITH CUCUMBER AND PITA BREAD. YEP....I WAS OKAY WITH IT.

 WE SETTLE IN AND WATCH TO TELL THE TRUTH WHICH WAS GOOD ( THE MOM STILL TOTALLY ANNOYS ME ) AND THE LAST 2 EPISODES OF DIRK GENTLY WHICH WAS VERY GOOD.

 WE FINISHED SEASON 2 AND UNFORTUNATELY THERE WILL NOT BE A SEASON 3. THE SHOW IS SCIENCE FICTION FANTASY AND CAN BE RIDICULED FOR BEING WAY OUT THERE AND SILLY BUT I LIKED IT. IN FACT I REALLY LIKED IT. ONE EXCELLENT CHARACTER CAN NOT BE KILLED AND SHE IS AN ASSASSIN. SHE GIVES UP KILLING UNTIL SHE SEES AN ARMY COME IN AND KILL HER BEST FRIEND. SHE PICKS UP A CHAINSAW AND MOWS THROUGH AN ARMY OF A 1,000 SOLDIERS. IT WAS BAD ASS. ANYWAY , FOR THIS SPECIFIC SERIES , ON OCCASION , YOU JUST HAVE TO LET EVERYTHING GO AND ROLL WITH IT. I REALLY ENJOYED IT.

 HEY , FLYERS LOSE AGAIN.

 76ERS BLOW A 23 POINT LEAD AND END UP WINNING BY 10. IN MY BOOK A WIN IS A WIN....BUT MAN THAT IS FRUSTRATING.

 SOME NIGHT CAPS AND I HEAD TO BED. I KINDA LIKE THIS " CALMING " CASSETTE BUT IT KEEPS PAUSING OR STOPPING FOR SOME REASON.

 I SLEPT ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE TONIGHT. I WOKE UP AT LEAST 15 TIMES. ( NOT INCLUDING 2 PEE BREAKS )

 WE DID 6 PROJECTS TODAY BUT IT SEEMS THERE IS ALWAYS 6 MORE.

 HEY , COVID CASES SPIKE IN NEW JERSEY AFTER A DECREASE OF RULES AND RESTRICTIONS WERE APPLIED. THIS IS JUST FUCKING GREAT.

 WEDNESDAY    3 - 24 - 21

 YEP......3:45AM I AM DRIVING TO A BAR.

 I TRULY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT DAY IT IS.

 WHEELS , " DO NOT WRITE ABOUT MY BUSINESS BEING HACKED. IT IS WHAT I WAS TOLD BY MY BOSSES " I GOOGLE IT. THE MAJOR NEWS IS ALL OVER THE INTERNET HOW THE 6TH LARGEST INSURANCE COMPANY IN THE WORLD WAS HACKED. I LIKE WHEN SHE COMPARES THE NAIL WEBSITE TO MAJOR NEWS AGENCIES.

 THE HEAVY OLD DROP LIGHTS I PICKED UP..........THREW THEM ALL OUT ALONG WITH ANOTHER 2' LIGHT THAT WAS WORKING JUST LAST WEEK.

 OFF TO THE NAIL TO DUMP PICTURES AND MIRRORS. I FEEL BAD WHEN THE MIRRORS WERE BREAKING INTO A 100 PIECES. WHERE DO THEY GO ? PLAY AROUND WITH THE LIGHT FIXTURES AND NONE WORK. I STORE 20 BULBS TO MESS AROUND WITH ANOTHER DAY. CHANGE MARQUEE SIGN IN THE RAIN.

 STOP AT LIQUOR STORE TO PICK-UP SMALL ORDER.

 BACK HOME IT IS POURING RAIN. I FLIP ALL THE CARPET TILES BACK UP TO THEIR RIGHT SIDE...........IN THE DRIVEWAY WITH AN UMBRELLA.

  MORE PROJECTS DONE AND I CAN STILL THINK OF 10 MORE. BUT THE ONE THING I AM PLEASED WITH IS OUR MAIN TOILET IS NOT LEAKING ANYMORE. 

 WHEELS - THE TOILET IS NOW LEAKING AT THE BOTTOM OF THE BASE. I SWEAR TO GOD.

 I SPEND OVER AN HOUR CLEANING , ORGANIZING , HANGING TROPHY PLAGUES , AND VACUUMING THE BASEMENT. I CAN ONLY GO SO FAR WITHOUT THE CARPET TILES.....WHICH STILL LAY ON OUR DRIVEWAY IN THE SOAKING RAIN. AS FRIEND SAID , " WELL , RAIN IS ACIDIC SO MAYBE THEY WILL BE WASHED A BIT. "

 I TOTALLY CONVINCE WHEELS TO GO OUT TO DINNER. IT WAS HARD TWISTING HER BUT SHE FINALLY AGREED. EVEN HARDER WAS CONVINCING OUR ELDEST WHO WAS STILL SLEEPING AT 6PM. SHE MADE IT TO THE RESTAURANT AT 6:03.

 OFF TO SONTUOSA. I WANTED TO SUPPORT A SMALL BUSINESS SO I GOOGLED TOP 10 BEST IN OUR AREA. MAN DID WE HIT A GEM. WE MET THE OWNERS AND TALKED SHOP. MOST TALK WAS ABOUT COVID AND HOW OUR SMALL BUSINESSES ARE BEING CRUSHED. THE ONE OWNER KNEW THE NAIL BIG TIME.....EVEN KNEW A BAND NAME. THE FOOD CUISINE WAS A MIX OF AMERICAN , ITALIAN , MEXICAN , AND FRENCH. WE ALL THOUGHT IT WAS VERY GOOD. A LITTLE PRICEY , CASH ONLY , BYOB , AND PORTIONS WERE OK TO GOOD. 

 BACK HOME WE WATCH THE MASKED SINGER. I HAVE NO IDEA WHY I STAYED AND WATCHED IT. WE DID START A WANDAVISION BUT STOPPED TO WATCH THE MASKED SINGER. I HAVE TO ADMIT AFTER A FULL MEAL I WAS FALLING ASLEEP.

 TRIED TO SLEEP WITH THE CALMING RECORDING BUT IT KEPT STOPPING ON MY PHONE.  IT DID THIS 4 TIMES THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT...........PLUS 2 VISITS TO THE BATHROOM. OH IT IS SO DISHEARTENING NOT SLEEPING.

 UP AT 3:45AM AND I DON'T SEE ONE OF OUR CARS IN THE DRIVEWAY. I WON'T GET INTO IT BUT I ENDED UP DRIVING TO A LOCAL BAR.

 THURSDAY     3 - 25 - 21

 GOOD LUCK , BAD X 3 , GOOD LUCK , BAD LUCK X 3.......I SWEAR DOES THIS STUFF HAPPEN TO OTHER PEOPLE ?

 I SHOWER AND SHAVE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 11 DAYS. I HAVE BEEN WEARING THE SAME BOXERS. MY BALLS SMELL LIKE OLD MILK AND TREE BARK.

  A WEEK AGO I'M WATCHING ACTION NEWS CECILY TYNAN AND HER TITS. SHE SAYS , "  MARCH HAS HAD THE LEAST AMOUNT OF RAIN SO FAR.....UNDER AN INCH .....SIMILAR TO CHRIS'S COCK WATCHING ME FROM GARRETT HILL WITH HIS STINKY BOXERS AT HIS ANKLES. "

 THE NEXT DAY OUR BASEMENT GETS FLOODED BECAUSE A SIMPLE TASK OF PUTTING A BUCKET UNDER A MAJOR LEAK WAS NOT DONE. THERE HAS BEEN 60 CARPET TILES LAYING IN OUR DRIVEWAY FOR A WEEK NOW. ALL COMPLETELY SOAKED BECAUSE IT HAS RAINED EVERY F'N DAY. CECILY YOU BLOW.

 SO WHAT THE HELL COULD POSSIBLY HAPPEN NEXT ? I MEAN I INSTALLED A 2ND SUMP PUMP IN AN AREA THAT ALWAYS LEAKS RAIN WATER INTO OUR BASEMENT. GUESS WHAT ? ALL THIS RAIN AND NOT A F'N DROPLET. OKAY THIS IS GOOD. THE LEAKING EXPANSION TANK WAS REPLACED AND NOW THAT LEAK HAS BEEN SOLVED. SO , WHAT IN THE HOLY HELL COULD POSSIBLY HAVE WATER ENTER OUR F'N BASEMENT AGAIN ? WHAT I ASK YOU ? WHATTTT !!!!???

 I GO DOWN MY BASEMENT TO GET SUPPLIES FOR A PLUMBING JOB AT THE NAIL. I NOTICE SOMETHING......A SOAKED FLOOR BY OUR ELECTRIC PANEL BOX AND LAUNDRY TUB. YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BELIEVE THIS BUT OUR FUCKING WATER METER IS LEAKING LIKE A SIEVE. I MEAN POURING OUT. BUT HEY , THERE IS GOOD LUCK TO THIS LEAK. A FLOOR DRAIN HOLE IS JUST 12 INCHES AWAY DRAINING THE WATER DOWN. OH JOY I GOT LUCKY !!!

 I CALL AQUA AND THEIR EMERGENCY SERVICE. THEY WERE THERE IN UNDER 2 HOURS AND REPLACED THE METER.

 I HEAD TO THE NAIL TO INSTALL A PEDESTAL SINK ( FREE WITH FAUCET - OVER $250 TOTAL ). I BRING THE PUP WITH ME. I WALK HER IN THE BACK AND SHE PEES AND POOPS BEHIND THE BARN ON ORSINI'S PROPERTY. I HAVE NO PROBLEM OF HER DOING THIS. I ALSO THINK , " OKAY , THIS WILL BUY ME TIME WITH THE DOG "

 I REMOVE THE OLD SINK AND FAUCET. IT IS DISGUSTING. THIS SINK HAS NOT BEEN MOVED IN OVER 80 YEARS. THE WALL LOOKED LIKE AN OLD PORN SITE THAT IMPLODED A VERY FAT PERSON'S ASS ON IT. THERE WAS SHIT , PISS , CUM , ASS HAIR , BALL PUBIC HAIR , DIRT , CORONA VIRUS , BEER , BOOZE , TOILET PAPER , OLD STRAWS , SOAP SCUM , POND SCUM  , ASS SCUM , AND SEVERAL MORE THINGS I COULD NOT INDENTIFY. THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE I GOT COVID JUST LOOKING AT THIS SHIT STORM OF A WALL. I ACTUALLY USED A SPACKLE KNIFE TO SCRAPE THE WALL CLEAN.  IT WAS WORSE THAN PICKING UP POOP IN OUR BACK YARD....WHICH I JUST DID EARLIER.

 I GOT KINDA LUCKY WITH THE PEDESTAL SINK. I HOOKED UP THE SUPPLY LINES BEFORE MOUNTING , THAN LINED UP THE HOLES TO HOLD IT IN PLACE , DRILLED AND RAN LARGE SCREWS IN THE WALL TO HOLD THE SINK , CLEANED ALL PIPING , AND USED A PIECE OF WOOD ON A WALL TO KEEP IT IN PLACE. I LEVELED IT AND SECURED IT TO THE WALL. THE ONLY PROBLEM WAS THE DRAIN TRAP WAS NOT LINING UP WITH THE SINK TAIL PIPE. I WALK OVER TO D.M.I. SUPPLY AND PURCHASE A FLEXIBLE PLASTIC DRAIN TUBE. I AM NOT SURE IF YOU CAN CONNECT PLASTIC TO METAL BUT I DID.

 NOW , THE SINK IS FREE STANDING. ALL I NEED TO DO IS MOUNT THE PEDESTAL UNDERNEATH TO SUPPORT IT. THE ONE PROBLEM......I DID NOT REALLY MEASURE THE HEIGHT. I CRAB THE PEDESTAL UNDER THE POOL TABLE AND TRY TO FIT IT UNDER THE SINK. IT IS NOT GOING TO FIT BECAUSE THE SINK IS MOUNTED ABOUT 2 INCHES TOO HIGH. I CURSE A BIT , TELL THE DOG SHE IS UGLY , AND TOTALLY BUM OUT. THERE IS NO WAY IN HELL I WANT TO RE-DO ALL THESE PLUMBING CONNECTIONS AND REMOVE THE SINK FROM THE WALL. I SIT ON THE FLOOR IN FRONT OF THE TOILET AND SULK. AFTER SEVERAL MINUTES I LOOK UNDER THE SINK AND NOTICE A NOTCH CUT OUT IN THE UNDER BELLY OF THE SINK. IT IS PERFECTLY FORMED FOR THE TOP OF THE PEDESTAL TO SLIP UNDERNEATH AND STABILIZE THE SINK IN PLACE. IT IS ABOUT 2 INCHES DEEP. TO MY SURPRISE I TILT THE PEDESTAL TOP INTO THE BOTTOM OF THE SINK AND SLIDE THE BOTTOM ALONG THE FLOOR. I AM STUNNED AND IT LOOKS REALLY GOOD. I TAKE A PICTURE AND SEND IT TO OUR FAMILY'S GROUP TEXT.

 NEXT PROJECT IS THE WALK-IN FRIDGE. LET'S GO WITH THE " LUCK " STORY AND HOW IT SHOULD BE TOLD THROUGH THE EYES OF " LUCK ".......SHALL WE ?

 - UNLUCKY - I HAVE CALLED MY TECH AND TEXTED EVERY DAY FOR THE LAST 4 DAYS WITH NO RESPONSE. I DON'T GET HOW NO ONE RESPONDS TO TEXTS BECAUSE IT ONLY TAKES MILLI-SECONDS BUT HEY THAT IS ME.

 - LUCKY - THE TECH CALLS ME AND SAYS HE CAN COME TODAY. I TELL HIM I AM HERE FOR AT LEAST 3 HOURS.

 - UNLUCKY - THE TECH ARRIVES AS I AM STILL WORKING ON THE PEDESTAL SINK. HE STARTS HIS WORK AND REMINDS ME THE COMPRESSOR WILL PROBABLY HAVE TO BE REPLACED LIKE HE SAID LAST VISIT.  TOTAL PRICE IS SOMEWHERE BETWEEN $450 DOLLARS AND ME BENDING OVER DROPPING MY STALE CHEERIO-LIKE BOXERS.

 - LUCKY AND UNLUCKY I GUESS - SINCE I HAVE TIME I GET DONE THE PEDESTAL SINK , CLEANING UP , VACUUMING EVERYWHERE , CONSOLIDATING MY TOOLS , LOADING MY TOOLS , WALKING THE PUP , PLAYING WITH THE PUP , AND WORKING ON A SURVEILLANCE MONITOR.

 - LUCKY - THE TECH , FOR THE 3RD TIME FILLS OUR SYSTEM WITH REFRIGERANT. HE TELLS ME HE THINKS HE FOUND THE LEAK AND WE DO NOT HAVE TO REPLACE THE ENTIRE SYSTEM INCLUDING THE COMPRESSOR.

 - UNLUCKY - I SAY GOOD BYE TO THE TECH AND HE TELLS ME TO KEEP AN EYE ON THE TEMPERATURE. I ALSO LOOK FOR 2 TOILET WAX SEALS HERE AND CAN NOT FIND THEM. I WANTED TO BRING ONE HOME FOR OUR LEAKING TOILET.

 - UNLUCKY - THE DOG POOPED AND PEED AND I THOUGHT THIS BUY ME AT LEAST 3 HOURS. AFTER AN HOUR SHE STARTED GROANING AT ME. OF COURSE I TURNED TO HER AND SAID , " WHAT THE FUCK DOG ? "

 I GET THE PUP AND WE LEAVE TOO. ARRIVING HOME I PULL UP THE DRIVEWAY AND DRIVE OVER THE 60 SOAKED CARPET TILES........FOR THE 50TH TIME.

 AT MY COMPUTER I CANCEL OUR ADOBE P.D.F. SUBSCRIPTION. I ALSO RE-APPLY FOR UNEMPLOYMENT IN WHICH THEY TOLD ME TO WAIT 1 WEEK. I WAITED ONE + WEEKS AND TRY TO GO ONLINE.....TOTALLY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I AM DOING. IT DID NTO DO WHAT I HAVE DONE 3 TIMES BEFORE......OF COURSE. OH , I ALSO DECIDED NOT TO CANCEL MY AMAZON PRIME FREE MAILING SINCE IT HAD 17 MORE DAYS ON IT.

 FIND OUT OUR BARTENDER/FRIEND GOT A JOB AT OUR LOCAL PUB UP THE STREET. THIS IS GOOD BECAUSE THE BARTENDER WE HAD SEVERAL TIMES BEFORE PADS THE BILL ON AN " OPEN " CREDIT TAB. I ALSO THOUGHT MY ELDEST SHOULD ASK FOR A JOB TOO SINCE IT IS WALKING DISTANCE.

 OUR ELDEST HAS BEEN DOING DOOR DASH LATELY. DOOR DASH OFFERED , " IF YOU CAN DO 25 DELIVERS FROM FRIDAY TO SUNDAY THEY WILL ADD $500 TOWARDS YOUR PAYMENT."  WELL , OUR KID WAS MOTIVATED AND DID IT. SHE MADE $770 DOLLARS FOR 3 DAYS OF DRIVING .....IN OUR CAR.

 FLYERS - LOSE AGAIN....NO BIG SURPRISE. GOALIE CARTER HART GAVE UP 5 GOALS ON 11 SHOTS. HE'S DONE.

 76ERS - A NICE WIN OVER THE LAKERS. NO EMBIID AND OUR CENTER DWIGHT HOWARD GOT KICKED OUT OF THE GAME FOR BUMPING A PLAYER. COACH DOC RIVERS WAS ANGRY AND PLAYFUL AS A REPORTER ASKED HIM WHAT WILL HE DO WITH THE TWO TALLEST PLAYERS OUT ? HE RESPONDS , " WELL , SCOTT HAS 2 FOULS AFTER THE 1ST QUARTER SO I HAVE TO SIT HIM OUT. THE NEXT TALLEST PLAYER WOULD BE ME. "

 EAGLES - THEY PICK UP JOE FLACCO. I AM COOL WITH THIS.

 PHILLIES - WIN OVER THE YANKEES 13-12 ON A WALK-OFF 9TH INNING SINGLE. I DID NOT KNOW ONE PLAYER WHEN THEY ALL HUGGED AT HOME PLATE.

 I WATCH FAST AND FURIOUS 6. AGAIN , FAST CARS SPEEDING AROUND CITIES AND STREETS AT 100MPH AND NOT HITTING ANYTHING OR ANYONE. THE STORY LINE WAS OKAY TO GOOD AT BEST. BUT AGAIN , THEY HAD THE ROCK AND WONDER WOMAN ACTRESS GAL GADOT. JESUS CHRIST THE THINGS I DO TO HER ASS ALONE ...........FOR 30 SECONDS. ACTUALLY , I WOULD PROBABLY DO NOTHING AND JUST LET HER WALK AROUND THE BEDROOM IN UNDERWEAR OR WHATEVER THE HELL SHE WANTED TO WEAR. I DID NOT KNOW SHE WAS A MISS ISRAEL , SERVED 2 YEARS IN THE ISRAEL DEFENSE FORCE AS A COMBAT TRAINER , STUDIED LAW , RIDES MOTORCYCLES , AND ENTERED MISS UNIVERSE BUT SABOTAGED HER WINNING BECAUSE SHE DID NOT WANT TO WIN IT. OH , SHE IS MARRIED TO A BUSINESS GUY 11 YEARS OLDER AND HAS 2 KIDS WITH HIM. ALL OF HER FAMILY APPEARED IN WONDER WOMAN 1984. I AM SO JEALOUS OF THAT GUY'S PENIS.

 POSTED A FACEBOOK AD FOR THE BANDS PLAYING THIS WEEKEND.

 OH , FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE STRUCK AGAIN. THIS TIME IT WAS SILLY BUT IT WILL BE USED. I TOOK A RIDE TO WAYNE AND ENTERED A PRIVATE DEVELOPMENT WITH JUST 2 HUGE HUGE HUGE HOMES. I ACTUALLY THOUGHT I HAD TO BE IN THE WRONG PLACE TO PICK UP A...........DOOR DOG BELL. THE REASON - WE TAKE OUR DOG DOOR BELL TO OTHER LOCATIONS AND SOMETIMES WE FORGET IT. NOW , WE HAVE A " TRAVEL " DOOR BELL.

 I RUN A 100' PHONE LINE FOR WHEELS IN HER NEW OFFICE.....OUR YOUNGEST BEDROOM.

 ELDEST GOES DOOR DASHING....AT 9PM.

 I ASK MY BROTHER HIS SERVICE MAY BE NEEDED IF OUR YOUNGEST GETS THIS APARTMENT. HE EMPHATICALLY SAID , " ANYTIME YOU NEED SOMETHING JUST CALL. YOU HAVE HELPED ME EVERY TIME I ASKED. "

 ANOTHER BROTHER TEXTS ME , " MY WIFE CAN SET YOU UP WITH A COVID SHOT. ALL YOU NEED TO SAY FOR THE APPLICATION IS YOU SMOKE AND ARE FAT. TECHNICALLY IT'S HALF THE TRUTH. "

 FUNNY , WHEELS HAS BEEN OFF ALL WEEK I THOUGHT IT BE A PERFECT TIME TO GET AWAY TO THE CONDO. BUT SHE SAYS NO AND EVERY DAY SOMETHING BREAKS OR LEAKS AND NEEDS ATTENTION. AGAIN....WHEELS WINS. AGAIN....I HAVE TO FIX STUFF.

 I HAVE ONE DRINK , PLAY A LITTLE POKER , WATCH HOGAN'S HEROES ( SCHULTZ STILL AMUSES ME ) , AND HEAD TO BED. THERE WAS AT LEAST 10 OTHER THINGS THAT HAPPENED TODAY ( MOSTLY UNLUCKY ) BUT I FORGOT THEM.

  FRIDAY     3 - 26 - 21

 MORE PROJECTS DONE ON A BEAUTIFUL DAY. I JUST CAN'T BELIEVE I CAN NOT GO ONE DAY WITHOUT DOING SOMETHING.

 NORMAL MORNING ROUTINE PLUS PUTTING OUT RECYCLABLES.

 EVER LOOK UP AN OLD GIRL OR BOY FRIEND ?  I DID THIS MORNING.  I AM NOT SURE WHY BUT I GUESS I WAS CURIOUS TO SEE IF OTHER PEOPLE ARE GETTING FAT LIKE ME.   IT ONLY TOOK A MINUTE..................FACEBOOK. 

 FLIP THE CARPET TILES ON THE DRIVEWAY.

 OFF TO HOME DEPOT. GOOD GOD DID I SEE A SMOKE SHOW OF A GIRL. IT ACTUALLY DEPRESSED ME THAT SHE WAS SO HOT. WHY.....BECAUSE I LOOKED LIKE THAT. I EVEN CROSSED PATHS WITH HER SINCE SHE WAS PARKED ACROSS FROM ME.  SHE BENT OVER TO CHECK SOMETHING ON HER DRIVER'S SIDE SEAT AND I SAW A SMALL OF THE BACK TATTOO.......AND MY FANTASY JUST TURNED RATED X. I HAVE NO LIFE.

 OH , I PICKED UP A TOILET WAX SEAL , SCREWS , WHITE SPRAY PAINT , GORILLA FLEX SEAL , QUICK CONNECTS , AND A 24" CLOSET DOOR. YEP.....MORE PROJECTS TO COME.

 BACK HOME I INSTALL THE WAX SEAL ON OUR LEAKING TOILET. I PULLED THE WHOLE TOILET , SUCKED ALL THE WATER OUT , CLEANED IT UP , APPLIED THE SEAL , AND RE-INSTALLED. IT ACTUALLY ALL WENT DOWN IN UNDER 40 MINUTES WHICH I WAS TOTALLY SURPRISED.

  WHEELS GOES FOR A WALK AND DOES DINNER AT A FAMILY MEMBER'S HOUSE.

 I WATCH SOME POKER AFTER DARK. THESE GUYS ARE LOSING 100K LIKE IT'S A 100 DOLLARS.

 BACK OUTSIDE I FLIP TILES AND MOVE THEM OFF WET SPOTS. MY ELDEST HELPS AND THAN GOES TO HANG WITH FRIENDS.

 I MOVE A TON OF TOOLS OUT OF THE VAN. SOME WILL GO TO THE GARAGE , SOME WILL STAY IN THE VAN , AND SOME WILL GO DOWN THE BASEMENT.

 PICK UP MAZE POOP. I ASKED WHEELS TWICE TO DO IT BUT SHE SAID , " NAH , YOU CAN. YOU DO A GOOD JOB AT IT. " I FEEL SHE IS TALKING MORE ABOUT LIFE THAN ACTUALLY PICKING UP POOP.

  WITH THE PUP ON A LEASH OUT FRONT I FILL ONE TRASH CAN OF WEEDS. I FIGURE WHY NOT GET A LITTLE JUMP ON IT. SHE BARKED AT LITTLE KIDS TO PLAY WITH HER FOR 5 MINUTES.

 PLAYED WITH THE PUP IN THE BACK YARD CHASING AND RETRIEVING A TENNIS BALL. THE DOG CRACKS ME UP.

 ATTACH A " QUICK CONNECT " TO A RUNNER LEASH.

 OPEN DOOR IN BASEMENT TO ALLOW HEAT IN TO DRY FLOORS....ALONG WITH 3 FANS. THIS IS 3 DAYS DOING THIS.

 MOVE CARPET TILES AGAIN. IT IS NOW GOING ON OVER A WEEK TO DRY THEM OUT. AGAIN , ALL THIS BECAUSE A BUCKET WAS NOT PUT UNDER A LEAK.

 OH , MY DAUGHTER SAY THE TV IS NOT WORKING DOWN THE BASEMENT. I SEARCH ED ON FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE AND FOUND 2.....FOR FREE. I WILL LOOK AT OURS FIRST. I ALSO KNOW A FRIEND OF MINE OFFERED A TV TO ME JUTS 2 WEEKS AGO.

 TALK TO A NEIGHBOR FOR ABOUT 20 MINUTES.

 TALK TO MY ELDEST WHO I GOT UP FOR ABOUT 10 MINUTES. THAN SHE LEFT FOR A FRIEND'S HOUSE. THAT WAS IT.

 BACK TO MY OFFICE / BEDROOM TO CHILL WITH THE PUP. I WATCH SOME TV , SURF THE INTERNET , AND RESPOND TO SOME INQUIRES ABOUT RENTALS.

 FOR A SOLID WEEK WHEELS COMPANY IS SHUT DOWN. THIS IS ONE SERIOUS VIRUS.

 SPEAKING OF VIRUS. ACTION NEWS ANNOUNCED AN " UP TICK " ON THE CORONA CASES. JUST FUCKING GREAT. THIS IS PROBABLY FAKE NEWS......GO TRUMP !!!

 WHEELS BACK HOME WE WATCH THE MOVIE BRIDESMAIDS. IT WAS ACTUALLY GOOD....ALOT OF SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE ACTRESSES. I LAUGHED OUT LOUD SEVERAL TIMES.

 OFF TO BED. I THINK I SLEPT OKAY.....NO IDEA. MY " OKAY " IS WAKING UP LESS THAN 10 TIMES A NIGHT.

  SATURDAY     3 - 27 - 21

 AND THE CARPET TILES FINALLY GO BACK IN THE BASEMENT. WHEELS AND I COLLECTED THEM IN 2 LARGE PLASTIC BINS OFF THE DRIVEWAY AND MOVED ALL OF THEM DOWN THE STEPS. SHE HELPS INSTALL THE FULL TILES AND I FINISHED THE PIECES ALONG WITH VACUUMING AND PLACING AIR FRESHENERS AROUND.

 I FIX OUR BASEMENT TV BY JUST CLEANING THE HDMI CORD AND FLIP FLOPPING IT INTO THE INPUTS.

 A FRIEND CALLS US TO PICK UP FRUIT PUNCH GATORADE. WHY ? HE AND HIS WIFE HAVE COVID AND QUARANTINED THEMSELVES FOR 2 WEEKS. WHEELS ENDS UP GETTING THE DRINKS FOR THEM AFTER HER WALK WITH FRIENDS.

 FLYERS WITH A MUCH NEEDED 2 - 1 WIN OVER THE RANGERS WHO HAVE BEEN BEATING THE HELL OUT OF US.

 OFF TO THE NAIL TO PREP FOR A REALLY WONDERFUL SHOW BY HAMMERSHEEP. THEY ARE SUPER COOL PEOPLE TO HANG OUT WITH AND THEIR SET WAS FUN. OVER 200 VIEWS DURING THE PERFORMANCE.

 A FRIEND STOPPED BY AND WE TALKED SHOP. IT WAS NICE TO CHILL.

 BACK HOME I SETTLE IN. OUR ELDEST AND A FRIEND / BARTENDER TRY TO CONVINCE US TO PARTY WITH THEM AT A LOCAL PUB. I WAS ALMOST WILLING BUT WE DECIDE TO CHILL.

 I CREATE A DIBRUNO BROTHERS ACCOUNT. I WANT TO TRY THEIR SANDWICHES. CHRIST DOES HOWARD ESKIN BUILD THE UP.

 WE TRY NEW TV SERIES ON NETFLIX THE IRREGULARS AND SHARP OBJECTS. WE LIKED BOTH. WE ALSO WATCHED FAMILY FEUD AND VILLANOVA LOSE.

   'NOVA HAD A SHOT AND PLAYED WELL THE FIRST HALF. THAN BAYLOR MADE A MOVE. A COMMENTATOR MADE A SPOT ON PREDICTION. " IF VILLANOVA LOSES THE LEAD THEY WILL LOSE." AT THE 8 MINUTE REMAINING MARK THEY LOST THE LEAD AND NEVER RE-GAINED IT. 

 76ERS LOSE BAD AND HOWARD GETS EJECTED FOR THE 2ND STRAIGHT GAME. THE COMMENTATOR SAYS ,  " WHAT IS HE THINKING ACTING LIKE A CHILD ? YOU KNOW YOU HAVE EMBIID OUT AND THIS BUMPS YOU UP. THIS IS HOW YOU RE-ACT AND PLAY ? C'MON MANNNNNNNNN."

 OFF TO BED KINDA TIRED. BY 11PM I AM SPENT BUT I DO STAY UP AND WATCH ANOTHER MOVIE WITH JASON STATHAM  CALLED TRANSPORTER 2. PLOT WAS EH TO OKAY BUT THE FIGHT SCENES BORDER LINE RIDICULOUS. WE ALL KNOW JASON IS A BAD ASS BUT HE FIGHTS 20 GUYS ALL ARMED WITH MACHETES AND AXES. HE BEATS THE HELL OUT OF ALL OF THEM. I STAYED UP UNTIL 12:30AM.

 UP TWICE DURING THE NIGHT AND FINALLY JUST GET OUT OF BED AT 3:15AM. I AM SO PISSED. I WRITE THIS BLOG , HEAR WHEELS USE THE BATHROOM AT 4AM , AND NOW IT IS 5AM. I GUESS I WILL TRY TO SLEEP AGAIN.........I HAVE TOO.

  SUNDAY    3 - 28 - 21

  INCREDIBLY OVER THE TOP TOUCHED OF THE LIVE STREAM PERFORMANCE BY THE BAND MIDHEAVEN. THEY SPENT OVER 4 1/2 HOURS ( ON THEIR DIME ) TO SET-UP AND SURPRISED EVERYONE BY COVERING A SCARS LIKE THESE SONG TO HONOR THE PASSING OF OUR FRIEND TOMMY SCARS. THEY ALSO PROMOTED THE SALVEY FAMILY'S GOFUNDME PAGE NON-STOP AND THE NAIL DURING THE STREAM. THE NAIL HAS BEEN CLOSED FOR OVER ONE YEAR AND I COULD NOT BE MORE PROUD OF WHAT OCCURRED ON OUR STAGE TONIGHT.

 https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-support-the-salvey-family

  MONDAY    3 - 29 - 21

 I THOUGHT IT WAS RIGHT YESTERDAY TO ONLY BLOG ABOUT THE SALVEY FAMILY. I WAS SUPER EMOTIONAL ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE OF MIDHEAVEN AND HOW THE SALVEY FAMILY REACTED TO THEM AND THE NAIL. I THANKED THE FAMILY FOR THEIR COMMENTS , EMAILS , MESSAGES , AND TEXTS TO ME .

 SPEAKING OF THE SALVEY FAMILY THEY WILL BE ATTENDING THIS SATURDAY'S SHOW AT THE NAIL WITH THE BAND INXSLV AT 4PM. TOMMY SCARS TWIN BROTHER CONTACTED ME ALONG WITH TOMMY'S WIFE. THEY ARE GOING TO BRING THEIR KIDS TO SEE THE SHOW AND THANK ME AND MY KIDS IN PERSON FOR OUR CONTINUING SUPPORT.

 SO , WHAT HAVE I BEEN DOING THE PAST 2 DAYS ?

  HERE'S THE LIST :

 - PICKED UP SANDWICHES FROM DIBRUNO BROTHERS AT ARDMORE FARMER'S MARKET. 

 - WE VISIT OUR YOUNGEST AT COLLEGE.

 - WE GO TO THE DOG PARK AND MAZE HAS A BLAST WITH 20 OTHER DOGS. I PARK ILLEGALLY AND WHEELS THINKS WE WILL GET TOWED. THE VAN IS IN EYE SIGHT AND ONLY 100 YARDS AWAY. THERE IS NO WAY WE WILL GET TOWED.  ANYWAY , WHILE MAZE HAS FUN WE TRY DIBRUNO BROTHER'S SANDWICHES FOR THE FIRST TIME. ALL OF US ARE NOT IMPRESSED. HOWARD ESKIN PROMOTES THIS COMPANY LIKE THEY ARE OVER THE TOP UNBELIEVABLE. WELL , HERE IS OUR EXPERIENCE - $11 PER SANDWICH , SANDWICH IS SMALL , TASTE WAS GOOD BUT NOT EXCELLENT , SANDWICHES WERE DRY , CURB SIDE PICK UP TOOK 3 DIFFERENT WORKERS ON THE PHONE TO FINALLY BRING IT OUTSIDE , PARK IN ASSIGNED AREAS FOR CURBSIDE PICK-UP......YEAH RIGHT.....WHERE ???? , THEY ADD $5 TO YOUR ORDER FOR CURBSIDE PICK-UP , THEY ADD $5 FEE IN CASE YOU DON'T SHOW UP , AND THEY DIDN'T EVEN GIVE US NAPKINS IN OUR BAG. SO , OVERALL THE SANDWICHES OKAY TO GOOD BUT EXPENSIVE AND THEY ADD $10 TO EVERY ORDER.

 - WALK BACK TO THE VAN AFTER A REALLY FUN TIME AT THE DOG PARK. I NOTICED WE WERE NOT TOWED BUT.....GOT A TICKET.  YEP.....A SUNDAY AT 2PM THE PHILADELPHIA PARKING AUTHORITY WAS ON THE BALL.....FUCKING ASSHOLES. I JUST SHOOK MY HEAD AND AGAIN WHEELS WAS RIGHTER THAN ME. TICKET IS $76. I WILL FIGHT IT.

 - STOP BY POSSIBLE NEW APARTMENT FOR OUR YOUNGEST. WE TAKE PICTURES AND SEND THEM TO MY BROTHER. WE MAY DO SOME REMODELING.

 - SAY OUR GOODBYES AND WE HEAD EAST. WE MAKE EXCELLENT TIME AND STOP AT HOME DEPOT TO PICK-UP A FLUSH VALVE FOR THE 2ND FLOOR TOILET. AT THE CONDO WE SETTLE IN.

 WE DECIDE TO GO TO THE INLET. ALWAYS GOOD FOOD , PORTIONS , AND PRICING. I WATCH THE MIDHEAVEN STREAM WHILE ANSWERING THE SALVEY FAMILY'S , BARTENDER , AND BAND'S QUESTIONS TO ME.  THEY WERE SUPER NICE AND THANKFUL TO ME AND MY KIDS FOR ALL THE STREAM SHOWS WE HAVE BEEN DOING FOR THEM. IT MADE ME VERY EMOTIONAL. I FIGURE WE REACHED OUR GFM GOAL SO WHY NOT PASS IT FORWARD TO A FAMILY IN TOTAL NEED. THE WHOLE FAMILY THANKS ME EVERY WEEKEND. IT MAKES ME FEEL GOOD TO HELP THEM.

 BACK HOME WE WALK THE PUP AND SETTLE IN AGAIN. WE MAKE SOME NIGHTCAPS AND CHILL.

 THE NEXT DAY WE WALK THE BOARDS TO VISIT THE DOG PARK. WE MEET SOME NICE WOMEN THERE TO TALK TOO.

 BACK HOME I START MY PROJECTS. WHEELS HELPS WITH SOME. I CHANGED THE HOME MADE WOOD BLOCKS FOR OUR BEDS WITH THE REALLY NICE BED BLOCKS THAT I GOT ON FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE. I HAD TO MACGYVER THEM A LITTLE BIT BUT THEY WORKED OUT PERFECT.

 REPLACE THE FLUSH VALVE ON THE 2ND FLOOR TOILET. I AM SURPRISED HOW QUICK AND EASY IT IS TO DO THIS. FOR 2 DAYS IT SEEMS TO BE WORKING PERFECTLY.

 I REPLACE A CLOSET DOOR. I SPEND 15 MINUTES CHISELING OUT DOOR HINGES AND GO TO HANG IT. I AM SO PISSED I HUNG THE DOOR UPSIDE DOWN. I ACTUALLY FUCKING DID THIS BEFORE AND TOLD MYSELF BE FUCKING CAREFUL. I RE-DO THE DOOR AND IT TAKES TWICE AS LONG. AGAIN , I MACGYVER AND IT CAME OUT NICE. I HAD TO INSTALL A DOOR KNOB AND DEAD BOLT. LUCKILY , I HAD THE RIGHT DRILL BIT TO DO A DEAD BOLT.

 GET SOME OTHER PROJECTS DONE AND NOTICE THE ICE MACHINE IS PUSHING OUT THE " CUTTER " CUBE PART. YEP....ALWAYS SOMETHING.

 I TOOK SOME NICE PICTURES ON THE BEACH OF THE SUNRISE AND MOON SETTING AT THE SAME TIME. I THOUGHT THIS WAS KINDA COOL. I POSTED IT ON FACEBOOK.

 WE TRY A NEW PIZZA PLACE CALLED MR 'DS PIZZERIA STEAKS & SUBS. BOTH OF US THOUGHT THE SPINACH PIZZA WAS VERY GOOD AND THE ANTIPASTO WAS GOOD BUT HAD WAY TOO MUCH KICK WITH GREEN PEPPER AND CAULIFLOWER.

 STOP AT GREEN'S LIQUOR FOR SOME VODKA. WHEELS SAID IT WAS " SHADY ".

 WE WATCH 2 SHOWS - THE IRREGULARS AND SHARP OBJECTS. BOTH WERE VERY GOOD.

 I WATCH THE FLYERS ON MY PHONE. I LOVE DOING THIS. THEY ARE DOWN 3 - 0 GOING INTO THE 3RD PERIOD. FLYERS SCORE 3 STRAIGHT GOALS TO TIE THE GAME IN REGULAR TIME. FLYERS PULLED THE GOALIE WITH 2 MINUTES LEFT. BUFFALO MISSED THE OPEN NET BY INCHES ON ONE SHOT. FLYERS THAN MOVE THE PUCK DOWN THE ICE AND SCORE. IN 3 ON 3 OVERTIME ( THE BEST ) THEY SCORE AND WIN THE GAME 4 - 3.

 POKERSTARS FINALLY LETS ME MAKE A DEPOSIT. I USE A BANK WE NEVER GO TO AND DEPOSIT A $100. I AM VERY DISAPPOINTED THAT ALL THE PLAYERS PLAY " CASH " GAMES. I SO MUCH PREFER " SIT & GO " OR " TOURNAMENT " STYLE.

 PUP SLEEPS WITH ME ONE NIGHT AND WHEELS ANOTHER.

 TUESDAY    3 - 30 - 21

  DOG PARK !!!

 THE WEATHER IS GOOD SO I WORK INSIDE.....BLOW.

  I FIND OUT OUR ICE MAKER IS BROKE. TIME TO SURF THE INTERNET. I CALL 2 LOCAL PLUMBING SUPPLIES STORES AND THEY DO NOT STOCK IT AND GIVE ME NAMES OF OTHER PLUMBING STORES. I CALL LOWES AND THEY HAVE IN STOCK FOR 75% CHEAPER.

 WE CLEAN OUT A CLOSET TO ORGANIZE AND CONSOLIDATE. I PAINT THE CLOSET DOOR I INSTALLED YESTERDAY WITH 2 COATS.

 WHILE THE PAINT DRIES WE HEAD TO THE DOG PARK. MAZE HAS AN ABSOLUTE BLAST WITH 10 OTHER DOGS. I ENJOY WATCHING HER HAVE FUN RUNNING AND BEING A NUDGE TO THE DOGS. I TRULY BELIEVE SHE HAS A SENSE OF HUMOR. WE MEET SOME NICE PEOPLE.

 WALK THE BOARDS BACK HOME. WE SPEND ABOUT 45 MINUTES RE-LOADING THE CLOSET AND PUTTING THE HARDWARE BACK ON THE DOOR. I AM VERY PLEASED HOW EVERYTHING TURNED OUT.

 I SPEND ABOUT 30 MINUTES TOTALLY CLEANING A VACUUM WHICH WAS USED TO CLEAN UP SPACKLE DUST SO THEY THREW IT OUT. I GOT IT FOR FREE AND TOOK EVERY PART OFF I COULD. AFTER CLEANING AND LETTING IT DRY IT WORKED PERFECT.

 DISABLED OUR ICE MAKER AND REMOVED IT FROM THE FREEZER. I CAN'T FIND MY FLASH LIGHT FOR 3 HOURS. WHEELS LOOKS IN THE FREEZER AND THERE IT IS. I SPEND AN HOUR CHARGING THE BATTERIES AND TRYING TO FIX A 2ND FLASH LIGHT. I KEEP ONE AND THROW THE OTHER OUT.

 WE LOAD SOME TOOLS AND OTHER STUFF INTO THE VAN JUST TO GET THEM OUT OF THE CONDO.

 TAKE A RIDE TO LOWES AND FIND THE ICE MAKER WE NEED. I BRING THE OLD ONE JUST IN CASE. I HAVE THE WORKER OPEN THE BOX AND IT MATCHES PERFECTLY.

 DRIVE BACK AND STOP AT ANGELSEA PUB FOR A VERY NICE DINNER. SERVICE , FOOD , TASTE , PORTION , AND PRICE WERE GOOD. WE HAD FLAT BREAD AND SHRIMP / SCALLOP SCAMPI. I REALLY ENJOYED THE DINNER PLUS THE DRAFTS WERE ICE COLD.

 BACK HOME I INSTALL THE ICE MAKER AND TAKE THE PUP TO THE DOG PARK AGAIN. I MET SOME REALLY NICE PEOPLE BUT THIS TIME IT WAS MOSTLY MALE DOGS WHERE EARLIER TODAY IT WAS FEMALE DOGS. ME AND ANOTHER OWNER CONSISTENTLY KEPT HIS 2 MALE DOG'S PENISES OFF MY DOG'S ASS.

 BACK HOME I SETTLE IN. WE WATCH EPISODES OF SHARP OBJECTS WHICH IS REALLY VERY GOOD ALONG WITH THE IRREGULARS WHICH IS ALSO GOOD.

 PHILLIES OPEN THEIR SEASON THURSDAY AT 3PM. WE HAVE FAMILY THAT IS GOING TO THE GAME. WE ARE NOT.

 76ERS LOSE AGAIN. NO UPDATE ON EMBIID.

 OFF TO BED WHERE MAZE SLEEPS A LONG TIME. I THINK SHE DREAMED OF ALL HER NEW FRIENDS. WELL , NOT THE ONES THAT HUMPED HER.

  WEDNESDAY    3 - 31 - 21

 TO ME IT'S LIKE A TREASURE HUNT.

 ICE MAKER IS NOT MAKING ICE AS FAST AS I LIKE BUT IT IS PRODUCING ICE.

 WE DECIDE TO GO TO THE STAR DINER FOR BREAKFAST. THIS PLACE IS ALWAYS GOOD WITH BIG PORTIONS , FREE COFFEE , AND GOOD PRICING. WE HAVE NOT DONE BREAKFAST OUT IN A LONG TIME. THE ONLY THING THAT IRKED ME WAS THE OWNER WHO GREETS EVERYONE. WHY ? HE HAS A MASK ON WHICH IS COOL BUT IT IS JUST COVERING HIS MOUTH. MAN , PEOPLE JUST DON'T GET IT. IT BE LIKE WEARING A CONDOM AND JUST PUTTING IT ON YOUR BALLS.

 OFF TO THE DOLLAR STORE TO PURCHASE SOME SMALL THINGS. I SO SHOULD OF GOT COOKIES. INSTEAD I GOT 12 DRIVEWAY LIGHTS FOR A DOLLAR EACH.

 BACK HOME WE SETTLE IN AND DO SOME SMALL CLEANING AND ORGANIZING PROJECTS. I ADJUST THE FRONT DOOR SCREEN ( YES STILL WORKING ON IT ) AND IT NOW CLOSES ON ITS ON.

 OFF TO THE DOG PARK WHERE MAZE HAS AN ABSOLUTE BLAST WITH FRIENDLY DOGS AND OWNERS. SHE GETS SPLOOGED WITH SALIVA.........TIME FOR A BATH.

 FROM THE DOG PARK WE DECIDE TO GO ON AN ADVENTURE.......WHICH MEANS FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE. THESE ARE VERY GOOD FREE TRANSACTIONS.

 FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE 1 - THE " CATCH " - IF YOU TAKE MY NEW TABLE FROM WAYFAIR YOU CAN HAVE MY NEW 4K 46" TV.  WE TAKE A REALLY NICE DRIVE TO CAPE MAY. A BEAUTIFUL AREA WHERE APPARENTLY PEOPLE MAKE UP THEIR OWN ADDRESSES. IT WAS FUNNY AS WE THOUGHT WE PULLED UP TO THE CORRECT ADDRESS. WELL , 4 HOUSES AWAY A YOUNG GIRL IS WAVING AT US. SHE ADMITTED THE ADDRESSES ARE SO WEIRD HERE.

 WE MOVE TO HER DRIVEWAY AND SHE IS AN IN-SHAPE BLONDE WEARING............SPANDEX.  THE STORY IS SHE JUST BOUGHT THIS HOUSE AND PURCHASED A LARGE TV SO SHE IS GIVING AWAY THE 46" TV. IT IS IN PERFECT SHAPE. AT FIRST IT NEEDED A POWER SUPPLY BUT SHE FOUND IT. I AM TELLING YOU THIS IS A REALLY NICE 4K HIGH DEF FLAT SCREEN TV.

 SO THE CONTINGENCY IS WE MUST TAKE A VERY LARGE WAYFAIR TABLE. GET THIS.....IT COST HER $500+ BUT IT HAD A SPECK ON IT. NOW THIS IS " SPECK " AS IN SINGULAR..........NOT " SPECKS " PLURAL. SO , SHE DID NOT WANT IT. THIS LARGE TABLE IS BRAND NEW AND HARDWARE STILL IN THE BOX. IN FACT I ALMOST FORGOT THE BOX OF HARDWARE BEFORE LEAVING. SHE HELPS ME LOAD THE TABLE TO OUR VAN. I NEED TO RE-ARRANGE STUFF SO WHEELS AND HER TALK WITH MAZE. I AM THINKING THIS LARGE TABLE CAN GO TO OUR HOUSE OR MOUNTAIN HOUSE. IT IS BRAND FRICKIN' NEW AND BEAUTIFUL.

 WE FINALLY LOAD-UP AND SAY OUR GOODBYES. THE BLONDE GIRL LOOKS VERY GOOD IN SPANDEX. I REALLY THOUGHT SHE WANTED TO DO A THREESOME.

 FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE 2 - WE STAY IN CAPE MAY AND DRIVE TO A MAGNIFICENT AREA JUST A BLOCK FROM THE COAST LINE. THE OCEAN SCENIC ROAD IS ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL. WE STOP AND PICK UP A BRAND NEW SHAMPOOER VACUUM. I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR ONE SINCE MINE WAS BROKE. I REALLY LIKE HAVING A SHAMPOO MACHINE BUT I JUST LENT IT OUT WAY TOO MUCH AND IT GOT RUINED. I TRIED TO REPLACE A MOTOR ON IT BUT IT BURNT OUT IMMEDIATELY SO I THREW THE WHOLE DAMN THING AWAY.

 WE MEET A NICE LADY AND THEIR HOUSE IS BEAUTIFUL. NOW GET THIS.....WE LET MAZE OUT OF THE VAN. SHE SAYS MAYBE SHE LIKE TO PLAY WITH THEIR DOG " JAZZ " ( KEY WORD ).  I BRING MAZE INTO THEIR ENCLOSED YARD ( WITH A POOL ) AND THE 2 DOGS PLAY. I MENTION HOW OUR DOG WILL NEED A BATH. SHE BRINGS ME INSIDE THEIR BEAUTIFUL HOUSE WHILE THE HUSBAND TALKS TO WHEELS OUTSIDE. THE INSIDE HAS VAULTED CEILINGS , GRANITE TOPS EVERYWHERE , NEW KITCHEN , IMMACULATELY CLEAN , BEAUTIFUL LIGHTING , AND ......AN AREA SPECIFICALLY FOR BATHING A DOG JUST LIKE PETCO HAS. I LOVED THE IDEA.

 WE TALK MORE OUTSIDE AND IT ENDS UP THE LADY IS A DANCER AND THE HUSBAND IS IN A JAZZ BAND AND A REALTOR. WE GET HIS CARDS FOR BOTH AND WE TALK MORE ABOUT PLAYING VENUES AND RADIO SHOWS...IN WHICH I DO BOTH ( OR DID BOTH ). WE TALK FOR A SOLID 20 MINUTES AND THEY ARE A VERY NICE COUPLE. THEY GIVE US THE BRAND NEW SHAMPOOER BECAUSE THEIR WHOLE HOUSE IS NOW TILE FLOORS. THEY EVEN THROW IN A FULL BOTTLE OF OXI CARPET CLEANING SOLUTION. WE SAY OUR GOODBYES AND I DRIVE ALONG THIS MAGNIFICENT COAST LINE STREET AGAIN.

 OH , ONE MORE THING. I WAS ABOUT TO LEASH MAZE TO GET HER OUT OF THE ENCLOSURE. THEIR DOG FLIPS THE FUCK OUT AND STARTS BITING OUR PUP. I MEAN IT WENT FULL DAVID BANNER. BOTH OWNERS FREAK OUT AND SAY , " DON'T USE A LEASH !! , DON'T USE A LEASH !! "  WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS TWILIGHT ZONE SHIT ? APPARENTLY THEIR DOG HATES LEASHES SO I ASKED , " OKAY , SO HOW DO I GET MY DOG OUT OF HERE ?...........THROW HER OVER THE FENCE ? "

 HEADING HOME WE DRIVE RIGHT BY CAPE MAY BREWERY. WE HAVE A FAMILY MEMBER WHO WORKS THERE SO WE CALL TO SEE IF SHE IF WORKING. YEP.........2PM IS THE NEW 5PM TO DRINK. SHE IS NOT WORKING SO WE HEAD HOME.

 WE CHILL FOR A LITTLE AND WALK THE PUP. WHEELS 6,000 PERSON COMPANY IS STILL SHUT DOWN. I ASK HER , " IS IT WRONG TO SEND A THANK YOU CARD TO THE RANSOM-WARE HACKER FOR YOU HAVING 2 WEEKS OFF NOW ? "

 WE FACETIME WITH OUR KIDS AND A FRIEND/BARTENDER WHO WE TREAT LIKE A DAUGHTER. IT IS FUN. I LET THE KIDS WATCH ME AS I BATH MAZE IN THE TUB. IT WAS FUNNY.

 OFF TO OWEN'S PUB WHERE WE ARE GREETED BY AN OVER THE TOP NICE GUY OUTSIDE. WHEELS WALKS IN TO SEE IF THERE IS ROOM AT THE BAR. IT IS ALWAYS PACKED. SHE WAVES TO ME AND I GO PARK 4 CARS DOWN. THE GUY OUT FRONT OF THE BAR SAYS I COULD OF PARKED RIGHT OUT FRONT. AGAIN , HE IS OVER THE TOP SUPER NICE TO WHEELS ( WHO IS INSIDE NOW ) AND NOW ME GOING IN. WE ARE PLEASANTLY SURPRISED THAT THERE IS NO SEATING AT THE BAR NOW BUT TABLES ALONG THE EXTERIOR WALLS. WE FIND A PERECT TABLE BY THE FRONT WINDOW AND EASTER DECORATIONS. THIS IS PERFECT. GET THIS.....FOR $30 WE HAVE 4 BEERS , HUGE CHICKEN POT PIE , BREAD , BROCCOLI , MASHED POTATOES WITH GRAVY AND MEATLOAF. THIS PLACE HAS THE BEST SPECIALS. WE ARE GLAD THERE IS NO BAR SEATING BECAUSE IT IS JUST TOO CLOSE TO PEOPLE DURING THIS COVID TIME. HAVING OUR OWN PRIVATE TABLE WAS THE BEST.

 I SEND PICTURES OF BAR , BEERS , AND THAN FOOD JUST TO NUDGE MY KIDS.

 OH , THE OVER THE TOP GUY IS A CHEF AT A FAVORITE PLACE WE USED TO GO TO CALLED CASEY'S ON THE 3RD. WE TRIED THE NEW PLACE WHICH IS NOW CALLED THE NORTH SHORE. BUT BOTH TIMES WE WERE DISAPPOINTED. WELL , IT ENDS UP THIS GUY IS THE PAST CHEF AND THEY BROUGHT HIM BACK. HE KNEW THE NAIL , THE MERION CRICKET CLUB , AND OUR AREA. WE HAD A LOT IN COMMON AGAIN. IT WAS THE THEME OF THE DAY IN WHOEVER WE RAN INTO. HIS NICKNAME IS " SHAKY ".  WELL , WE PROMISED " SHAKY THE CHEF " WE WILL RETURN TO THE NORTH SHORE. HE OFFERED TO BUY US DRINKS BUT WHEELS DECLINED. I DID NOT HEAR THIS AND MY MOTTO IS , " ALWAYS SAY YES TO FREE DRINKS. "

 BACK HOME WE ARE GREETED BY THE PUP. SHE SMELLS WONDERFUL AND LOOKS SHINY.

 WE SETTLE IN AND I TRY WAYS OF WATCHING THE PHILLIES AND FLYERS VIA OUR ROKU....NONE WORK. WE LIKE TO WATCH THE HOME OPENER TOMORROW IF WE CAN.

 FOR THE FIRST TIME I PLAY A " REAL " MONEY INTERNET POKER GAME. I WANTED TO DO A 25 CENT GAME TO START BUT NO TABLES WERE FILLING. I NOTICE A $5 TABLE WAS CLOSE SO I JOINED. WITHIN 5 MINUTES I WAS PLAYING IN A SIT-AND-GO 6 PLAYER TABLE. THE TOP 2 PLAYERS CASH. I TELL WHEELS THIS AND ANNOUNCE EACH TIME A PLAYER IS ELIMINATE. MY GOAL IS TO MAKE THE FINAL 2 AND CASH. I AM PLAYING PERFECTLY WITH MY SMALL POT THEORY...." WIN SMALL , DON'T LOSE BIG. " I ANNOUNCE TO WHEELS......" ONE PLAYER OUT " THAN 2 , THAN 3.

 CONTINUED - SO THERE ARE 3 PLAYERS LEFT. I AM CHIP LEADER WITH 4K AND 2ND AND 3RD PLAYERS HAVE 2K. YES , I HAVE DOUBLE WHAT THEY HAVE. I FEEL GOOD AND WHEELS SAYS THIS IS GOOD. I RELUCTANTLY REPLY , " I HAVE SEEN THIS BEFORE ".  A BAD BEAT AND A COLD HAND ELIMINATE ME 3RD AND I DO NOT CASH. I AM SO PISSED AT MYSELF. I FUCKING KNEW IT. I WAS DOUBLE CHIP LEADER AND END UP THIRD. THIS IS WHY I WILL NEVER PLAY BIG TIME CASH GAMES......WORSE FUCKING JINXED HANDS EVER. THIS REALLY MADE ME BUM OUT. I PLAYED PERFECT POKER MAKING GREAT CALLS AND FOLDS UNTIL 2 BAD BEATS AND A COLD HAND.

 WHAT WOULD YOU DO ? THREE HANDED I RAISED WITH 9'S AND GET CALLED. THE FLOP IS ALL DIAMONDS WITH AN ACE WHICH I REPRESENT. I BET , HE CALLS. A 4TH DIAMOND COMES OUT ON THE RIVER. I DO HAVE A 9 OF DIAMOND ALONG WITH MY 9'S. BLINDS ARE 200/400 WITH A BIG POT. I ONLY HAVE 1K LEFT TO CALL THE OTHER PLAYER'S ALL-IN. SO IS HE BLUFFING ?, HAS A SMALLER DIAMOND UNDER MY 9 ? , OR DOES MY OPPONENT HAVE A HIGHER DIAMOND OF ONLY JACK ,  QUEEN , OR KING ? I DECIDE WITH POT ODDS , MY STACK SIZE , AND BLINDS GOING UP TO CALL. IT ENDS UP HE HAS POCKET JACKS WITH A JACK OF DIAMOND. HE HAS A HIGHER FLUSH THAN ME. I GET ELIMINATED. MAN , THE POKER GODS COULDN'T EVEN LET ME HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF LIGHT.

 WHEELS AND I WATCH THE LAST 3 EPISODES OF SHARP OBJECTS. A CRAZY ENDING IN THE LAST 10 SECONDS MADE THIS SHOW GO VIRAL AND YEARN FOR A 2ND SEASON.

 I WATCH THE FLYERS LOSE TO BUFFALO. THE SABERS ENDED THEIR 18 GAME LOSING STREAK. MAN WE BLOW.

 WHEELS HEADS TO BED AND I WATCH ANOTHER EPISODE OF TED LASSO USING MY ROKU. I LIKE IT.

 I ALSO TRY TO FACERTIME MY KID RIGHT BEFORE MIDNIGHT BUT SHE IS WITH FRIENDS AND DENIES ME.......OH MAN.

 FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE TO STRIKE AGAIN. YEP....TOMORROW MORNING AND IS A SMALL WORLD AGAIN. THE STORY TOMORROW. MY KIDS ALWAYS SAY , " MAN , DO YOU KNOW EVERYONE ? "  WHEN YOU OWN A LIVE MUSIC VENUE....IT IS DAMN CLOSE.

 I CLIMB INTO BED AND TURN THE TV ON FOR JUST A MINUTE. I NOTICE WE HAVE ALL CHANNELS NOW. OUR SEASON TV PACKAGE WENT FROM OFF-SEASON TO SEASONAL AS OF MIDNIGHT APRIL 1ST. WE WILL BE ABLE TO WATCH THE PHILLIES TOMORROW......NICE. THEY WILL LOSE.

  THURSDAY    4 - 1 - 21

 REDEMPTION !!!!!.....ON A TINY SMALL INSIGNIFICANT SCALE.

 NOT THE BEST APRIL FOOLS JOKE TO SAY YOU HAVE COVID. OUR YOUNGEST FRIEND DID THIS TO US.

 FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE STRIKES AGAIN. THESE PEOPLE KNEW A MUTUAL FRIEND , HIS BAND , AND THE NAIL. WE MET OUTSIDE WHILE I WAS WALKING THE PUP. YEP , THEY DROVE TO ME. THE WOMAN WAS VERY COOL. THEY GAVE ME ALL NEW TRAILER LIGHTS. THIS IS BIG ( AND LITTLE ) SINCE MOST OF MY TRAILER LIGHTS ARE BROKE.

 I DID PURCHASE 12 DRIVEWAY SOLAR LIGHTS AT THE DOLLAR STORE......FOR A DOLLAR EACH. THAT IS A GOOD TRADE.

 WHEELS AND I TAKE A WALK TO THE DOG PARK ALONG THE BOARDS. THE " BIG " DOG SIDE WAS FLOODED SO WE WENT ON THE " SMALL " DOG SIDE WITH EVERYONE ELSE. OF COURSE , 2 DOGS START HUMPING MAZE. THEY GOT OUT FAST AND WE MOVED MAZE TO THE BIG SIDE. THIS HALF LAB DOES NOT LIKE WATER FOR SOME REASON. I FORCED HER INTO THE LARGE PUDDLES AND AFTER A MOMENT SHE WAS SPLASHING & CHASING THE OTHER DOGS IN IT. IT WAS FUN TO SEE.

 WALK BACK AND SETTLE IN TO WATCH THE PHILLIES WIN THEIR OPENING GAME AGAINST THE BRAVES IN EXTRA INNINGS 3 - 2.

 MAN DID THE TEMPS DROP. I LITERALLY HAD 2 COATS ON AND GLOVES WHEN WALKING THE PUP.

 WE HEAD OUT TO DINNER AT DUFFINETTI'S.  WE FELT VERY SAFE AS SMALL TABLES WERE PLACED ALONG THE EXTERIOR WALLS. WE ORDERED CLAMS CASINO , GNOCCHI'S , LASAGNA  , MEATBALL , BREAD , WINE , AND CAPE MAY IPA. THE FOOD WAS EXCELLENT. OUR WAITER WAS EH.......NO SENSE OF HUMOR. I WILL GO BACK TO THIS PLACE.

 BACK HOME WE SETTLE IN. I WALK THE PUP IN THE COLD. MAN , DID THESE TEMPERATURES DROP.

 WE WATCH THE IRREGULARS ( VERY GOOD ) AND GREY'S ANATOMY ( NO REVIEW ).

 EARLIER I DID WATCH 2 MORE EPISODES OF TED LASSO. I AM TELLING THIS IS PRETTY DAMN GOOD.....FUNNY , HEARTFELT , ASS.........I REALLY LIKE IT. IT ALREADY HAS BEEN PICKED UP FOR A 2ND SEASON.

 REDEMPTION : LAST NIGHT I WAS DISAPPOINTED IN MYSELF PLAYING " REAL " MONEY POKER AND GETTING ELIMINATED ON THE BUBBLE. I KNOW I AM A BETTER PLAYER SO TONIGHT I PLAYED ON A SMALL SCALE OF 1 AND 2 PENNY CASH GAME. YES , IT IS ULTRA SMALL BUT I WANTED TO SEE HOW I DO. I WON A $1.08. OK.....DOESN'T SEEM LIKE MUCH BUT AGAIN I WAS TESTING THE WATERS.

 FEELING A LITTLE MORE CONFIDENT THE NEXT POKER GAME I ENTERED WAS A " SIT & GO $5 BUY-IN " JUST LIKE LAST NIGHT WHERE I WAS ELIMINATED 3RD ( OUT OF CASH ) AFTER BEING A CHIP LEADER. TONIGHT I DECIDED NOT TO SAY ANYTHING TO WHEELS , MOSTLY BECAUSE SHE WAS WATCHING HER SHOW , AND JUST PLAY.....NO UPDATES. WELL , I DID UPDATE HER WHEN I MADE THE FINAL 2 PLAYERS AND CASHED. SHE SEMI-WATCHED AS I WON. MY SCREEN FLASHED " WINNER !!! ". YEP I WON. THIS SO MADE ME FEEL GOOD IN A TINY INSIGNIFICANT WAY. OH FOR THE $5 ENTRY I WON $18. WOOO HOOO !!

 I WALK THE PUP AND RETURN TO DRINK MORE BECUASE I AM ALL FIRED UP I WON AND PROVED TO MYSELF I CAN PLAY REAL MONEY GAMES. MAN IT IS COLD OUT.

 YOUNGEST GETS AN APARTMENT. WE ARE HAPPY FOR HER. I WILL FILL IT FOR FREE WITH FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE STUFF.

 WE FACETIME WITH OUR ELDEST TO CHECK IN.

 ON A SADDER NOTE WE DO REMEMBER MY FATHER-IN-LAW WHO PASSED ON APRIL FOOLS DAY. ONLY HE WOULD HAVE A BIRTHDAY ON ST. PATTY'S DAY AND LEAVE US ON THIS DAY. HE IS STILL REMEMBERED VERY MUCH.

  FRIDAY    4 - 2 - 21

 WELP , WE DECIDE TO LEAVE A DAY EARLY DUE TO COMMITMENTS AND OTHER THINGS.  WE SPEND ABOUT 2 HOURS CLEANING AND LOADING UP. IT SUCKS LEAVING THIS BEAUTIFUL PLACE ESPECIALLY SINCE THE WEATHER IS TURNING FOR THE BETTER.

 I PLACED A FACEBOOK AD WITH GLEN MACNOW OF SPORTS RADIO ON WYPS 94.1 WEARING OUR " SAVE THE NAIL " TEE SHIRT.....KINDA COOL. NOW , TO JUST GET RAY DIDINGER TO WEAR ONE. WE WILL BE OPEN THIS SATURDAY FROM 3PM - 6PM FOR A LIVE STREAM SHOW BY INXS-IV.

 STOP IN AVALON FOR LUNCH WITH FAMILY. IT WAS VERY NICE. WHEELS BOUGHT HERSELF A CADBURY CHOCOLATE EGG AS AN EASTER GIFT FOR HERSELF. A FAMILY MEMBER SHOWED US PICTURES OF A NEW S.U.V. SHE BOUGHT HERSELF AS A GIFT. THEY BOTH PAID WITH CASH.

 WE MAKE GOOD TIME TO PICK UP OUR YOUNGEST AT COLLEGE. IT IS SO FUN TO HAVE HER WITH US. SHE SNUGGLES WITH THE PUP AS I DRIVE HOME.

 I DECIDE TO BLOW OFF 2 FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE ITEMS AND JUST GET HOME.

 WE SETTLE IN. UNLOADING IS THE WORST PART OF GETTING AWAY.

 WE DO CHECK OUT THIS NEW TABLE WE GOT. IT IS IN MINT CONDITION. I NEVER HEARD OF A LARGE " TABLE TOP " FROM WAYFAIR. IT COMES WITH A 2 LEAFS BUT NO LEGS. I NEVER EVER HEARD OF THIS PRODUCT. NOW....THE SEARCH FOR LEGS.

 WATCH AN EPISODE OF TED LASSO. THIS SERIES HAS STEPPED UP FROM OK TO GOOD TO VERY GOOD. IT IS BORDERLINE EXCELLENT.

 WE HEAD OUT TO DINNER TO A LOCAL PLACE CALLED FELLINI'S CAFE. THE FOOD WAS GOOD TO BETTER THAN GOOD BUT THE OWNER AND STAFF WERE EXCELLENT. THEY OFFERED A FREE GLASS OF WINE AND THAN ITALIAN HOMEMADE STYLE AMARETTO DRINKS AFTER DINNER. WE TOOK HOME DESERTS. I HAVE TO ADMIT I WAS DISAPPOINTED WITH THE MUSSELS IN A WHITE SAUCE. IT WAS KINDA FISHY AND CONGEALED. USUALLY I WILL USE 4 LOAVES OF BREAD TO SOP UP THE SAUCE. THE ENTREES WERE RATED GOOD TO DELICIOUS. THE OWNER " PINO " IS SO DAMN POLITE AND SPEAKS WITH A STRONG ITALIAN DIALECT USING WORDS LIKE SALUTE , GRAZIE , MANGI , AND MORE. OUR WAITRESS WAS ADORABLE AND SHE LET ME SPRINKLE PARMESAN CHEESE ON OUR ENTREES AFTER SHE JUST DID IT. SHE GIGGLED. OF COURSE , I MESSED WITH HER AND SHE REPLIED , " IT'S FUN ISN'T IT ?!! " MY FAMILY JUST BOWED THEIR HEADS IN SHAME. THEY WILL MISS I THINK.

 THE KIDS GO BOWLING WHILE WHEELS AND I CHILL. WE FINISH THE SERIES THE IRREGULARS. IT WAS GOOD.

 OFF TO BED BUT COULD NOT SLEEP UNTIL OUR KIDS GOT HOME. I LISTENED TO THE CALMING TAPE TWICE.

  SATURDAY      4 - 3 - 21

 WHEN YOU GIVEAN ADDRESS SAYING YOU LIVE IN A HUGE APARTMENT BUILDING WOULD HELP.

 SO WE NEED TO FIND LEGS FOR THIS NEW WAYFAIR TABLE. WHEELS PRICED IT OUT AT $1,070. THIS TABLE IS TOO NICE TO GET RID OF.  WE COULD NOT FIND LEGS VIA 2 COMPANIES SO WE DID THE NEXT BEST THING......FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE.

 TAKE A RIDE TO CITY LINE AVENUE AND THE SHY INDIAN LADY FAILED TO MENTION HER ADDRESS WAS IN A LARGE APARTMENT BUILDING BIGGER THAN CENTER CITY. WE ASK PEOPLE WHERE THE BUILDING WAS AND ADDRESS AND ALL 3 HAD ABSOLUTELY NO CLUE. FUNNY......... IT WAS LITERALLY A 1/2 BLOCK AWAY. WE FOUND IT AND SHE WALKED US UP ONE FLIGHT OF STEPS INTO A HALLWAY WHERE A NICE TABLE AND 4 LEGS WERE LEANIGN ON A WALL. SHE WENT IN HER APARTMENT , DID NOT SAY GOODBYE , AND OFFERED NO ASSISTANCE. SO.......WE DID IT AND GOT THE TABLE TO THE VAN.

 BACK HOME I MACGYVER HOW THESE LEGS WILL FIT ON OUR TABLE. USING A DRILL , RECESSING BEVEL BIT , WET/DRY VAC , AND SCREW GUN I FIGURED OUT A WAY TO DO IT. WHAT WAS FRUSTRATING WAS I PUT MY TOOLS AWAY 3 DIFFERENT TIMES AND 3 TIMES I RE-TOOK THEM BACK OUT TO FABRICATE THE TABLE LEGS BETTER.

 I MIXED AND MATCHED 7 DIFFERENT PAINTS AND STAINS. WE DID FIND A MATCH TO PAINT THE LEGS AND SEMI-MATCH THE TABLE. THE TABLE HAS A COOL FEATURE OF A FOLDING LEAF INSERT THAT ARE MOUNTED ON A HINGE UNDER THE TABLE. ONE FLIP AND THE TABLE IS EXTENDED BY 24 INCHES.....KINDA LIKE MY PENIS.

 I WATCH THE FINALE OF TED LASSO. I AM TELLING YOU THIS IS VERY GOOD ESPECIALLY IF YOU LIKE SOCCER. I RECOMMEND USING " CAPTIONS " WHEN WATCHING.  IT IS ON APPLE TV AND I SIGNED UP FOR ONE FREE YEAR.

 OFF TO THE NAIL FOR A VERY GOOD STREAM SHOW BY INXSIV ( PRONOUNCED " IN-EXCESSIVE " ). CLOSE TO 200 FANS WATCHED THE 50 MINUTE STREAM AND WE SOLD OUT OF " SAVE THE NAIL " TEE-SHIRTS. ABOUT 12 PEOPLE ATTENDED WHICH WAS NICE TO SEE. BOTH MY KIDS WERE THERE WHICH MEANT A GREAT DEAL TO ME AND VERY COOL ESPECIALLY SINCE THE SALVEY FAMILY MADE AN APPEARANCE. THEY THANKED ME SEVERAL TIMES AND WE ALL GOT IN AT THE END OF THE STREAM FOR AN ON-CAMERA APPEARANCE. I DID NOT GET UPSET ON CAMERA.....CLOSE THOUGH.

 BACK HOME I TALK TO A FAMILY MEMBER FOR ABOUT 30 MINUTES.

 A FRIEND OF MY ELDEST OFFERS TO UPDATE OUR WEBSITE FOR FREE. I LIKE THOSE NUMBERS.

 A SURVEILLANCE TECH OFFERED TO RE-DO OUR SYSTEM WITH TOTALLY AWESOME HIGH TECH EQUIPMENT FOR.......5+ GRAND. HE REALIZES WE HAVE BEEN CLOSED FOR OVER A YEAR RIGHT ?

 I CALL AN OLD TECH UI USED BEFORE AND THINKS I CAN USE AN OLD COMPUTER FOR $80 TO RE-DO OUR SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM. I LIKE HIS NUMBERS.

 PHILLIES WITH A SOLID 4-0 WIN IN EVERY AREA.....PITCHING , TIMELY HITTING , DEFENSE , BULL PEN , ..........WHO IS THIS TEAM ? I KNOW....WAY TOO EARLY.

 76ERS WITH EMBIID CRUSH TIMBERWOLVES.

 FLYERS WITH A NICE COMEBACK TO TIE THE GAME ONLY TO LOSE IN A SHOOT-OUT. GEE.....NO SURPRISE THERE.

 GONZAGA VERSE BAYLOR FOR NCAA CHAMPIONSHIP.

 WE DECIDE TO WALK UP THE STREET TO VISIT OUR ELDEST FRIEND / BARTENDER OF OURS WHO GOT A JOB....BARTENDING. WHEELS AND I TREATED AGAIN. WE MEET SOME FRIENDS OF OUR KIDS AND I SO ENJOY TALKING WITH THEM.

 SO THE GOODS AND BADS OF THE BAR VISIT :

 GOODS - LOVED SEEING THE GIRLS WHO WE KNOW AND BARTENDED FOR THE NAIL AND " HOLLYWOOD ". OH , HOLLYWOOD LOOKS 20 YEARS YOUNGER WITH NEW HAIRCUT AND WEIGHT LIFTING PROGRAM.  HE STOPPED AT THE NAIL AFTER TELLING ME HE BE THERE IN 20 MINUTES. I WAITED 40 MINUTES. I HEARD HE EVENTUALLY GOT THERE IN OVER AN HOUR.

 ANYWAY THE GOODS - WATCHING SPORTS , KNOWING THE BARTENDERS , CHILLING WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY , TELLING MANY STORIES , AND JUST HAVING FUN. I TOOK SOME PICTURES TOO.

 THE BADS - I BOUGHT A ROUND FOR 6 PEOPLE AT ANOTHER TABLE. NOT ONE SAID THANK YOU....NOT ONE. OK , NO BIG DEAL. ONE PERSON DID RUIN THE NIGHT BY 50%. WHY ? A STRANGER JOINING OUR TABLE. OH MY GOD ALL I WANTED TO DO WAS TO TALK AND HAVE FUN WITH THE KIDS ( NOW ADULTS ) I KNOW AND HOLLYWOOD.

 SO WE ROLL OUT. I HAVE TO ADMIT I ALMOST REGRET THE DECISION BECAUSE VILLANOVA KIDS PACKED THE PLACE. THE ONLY REASON WE STAYED WAS THEY MOVED TO ANOTHER ROOM. THE GIRLS......OH MY GOD TO BE YOUNG AGAIN.

 BACK TO OUR HOUSE TO SHOOT POOL WITH OUR YOUNGEST AND LISTEN TO PHENOMENAL MUSIC. IT WAS AWESOME. WE WERE JOINED LATER BY THE FRIEND/BARTENDER , HER BOYFRIEND , AND.....THE STRANGER. OH MY GOD !! OVERALL IT WAS FUN SHOOTING POOL AND LISTENING TO EXCELLENT MUSIC

 WHEELS + MAKERS MARK = GUNKY

 OK , GUNKY WHEELS WAS ENTERTAINING TO ABOUT 1AM. WE ARE PARTNERS IN POOL AND PLAYING ALTERNATING TURNS. SHE SHOOTS , I SHOOT , SHE SHOOTS , I SHOOT. THIS IS A SIMPLE FORMAT. AT LEAST 5 TIMES SHE CONTINUED TO SHOOT AND NOT EVEN LOOK AT ME WHEN IT WAS MY TURN. IT WAS ENTERTAINING TO MY DAUGHTER AND I.

 I STAYED UP UNTIL 2AM. I WAS TIRED. SO GLAD I TOOK ADVIL.

 DECIDED TO CONTEST MY PARKING TICKET BY THE PHILADELPHIA PARKING AUTHORITY. I GIVE MYSELF 0%.

  SUNDAY     4 - 4 - 21

 HAPPY EASTER.....AND IT WAS.  PEOPLE GETTING TOGETHER FOR THE FIRST TIME IN OVER A YEAR. I KNOW WE MUST NOT GET TOO COMPLACENT WITH COVID STILL VERY MUCH AROUND.

 FACEBOOK MARKETPLACE STRIKES AGAIN. THIS TIME IT WAS A GOOD THING AND KINDA A BAD THING. I PICKED UP ANOTHER DINING ROOM TABLE 5 MINUTES FROM THE NAIL. THE GOOD - THE LEG SUPPORT HOLES FIT PERFECTLY WITH OUR " NEW " TABLE. THE BAD - ALL THAT WORK ( 3 TIMES ) I DID YESTERDAY TO MACGYVER THE FIRST LEGS TO FIT THE " NEW " IS NOW WASTED. IT WAS MORE OF A PAINFUL WASTE OF TIME " BAD ".

 I STOP AT THE NAIL TO CHECK ON THINGS , CLEAN , AND CHANGE THE MARQUEE. I ALSO USE A COMPUTER MONITOR TO REPLACE OUR SURVEILLANCE MONITOR AND TESTED THE DVR. THEY WORKED PERFECTLY. I GOT BOTH TO TURN ON. THIS MADE ME PLEASANTLY HAPPY. I ALSO TEXT OUR FRIDGE TECH THE WALK-IN IS A STEADY 33 DEGREES.

 BACK HOME I MIX PAINT AGAIN TO TRY TO MATCH LEGS TO THE TABLE. WE ARE CLOSE.  AND BY CLOSE I MEAN JUST GOING WITH THE COLOR BLACK.

 YOUNGEST AND I WATCH A DOCUMENTARY ON BILLIE EILISH. IT WAS SLOW MOVING.

 WHO ARE THESE PHILLIES ? ANOTHER SOLID WIN WITH EXCELLENT PITCHING , TIMELY HITTING , AND DEFENSE. WE SWEPT THE BRAVES WITH LIMITED RUNS. THIS IS A GOOD SIGN BECAUSE THIS OFFENSE WILL PICK UP.

 ALL OF US HEAD TO A FAMILY MEMBER'S HOUSE. WE SAW THE BRAND NEW S.U.V. THE WIFE BOUGHT HERSELF IN CASH......NICE. I LOOKED BACK AT OUR MINIVAN AND SIGHED.

 IT WAS NICE GET TOGETHER WITH A VERY GOOD DINNER. IT WAS GREAT TO SEE GRAND MOM AND HANG WITH FAMILY. WE ALSO FACETIMED WITH MY NIECE WHO I ADORE AND RESPECT. I CANNOT BELIEVE SHE IS GOING OT BE 21 NEXT MONTH.

 BACK HOME AROUND 8:30PM I DRIVE MY YOUNGEST BACK TO COLLEGE. I SARCASTICALLY TOLD HER TO THINK ABOUT COMING HOME EVERY OTHER WEEKEND FROM NOW ON. SHE SARCASTICALLY ANSWERED , " I'LL THINK ABOUT IT. " EVEN THOUGH IT WAS LATE ( FOR ME ) I ABSOLUTELY ENJOY THESE MOMENTS WITH HER. WE TALKED AND LISTEMED TO MUSIC.

 OH , NEVER TAKE HIGHWAY 76 IS MY MOTTO. I BROKE THIS MOTTO ANDDDDDDDDDD PACKED. UN-FUCKING-BELIEVABLE. TOTALLY JAMMED TRAFFIC 9PM ON A F'N SUNDAY NIGHT ?....AT 9PM !!!!!!

 I POSTED A FACEBOOK PICTURE OF A SAM ADAMS BEER AND A COOL DEER ANTLER SILVER CUP. I POSTED , "
 HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE ". A TON OF FAMILY FROM ALL OVER PENNSYLVANIA COMMENTED BACK......WHICH WAS NICE.

 AT HER COLLEGE WE SAY OUR GOODBYES AND HUG. SHE TEXTS HER FRIENDS SHE BROUGHT AN EASTER FRUIT TART DESERT FOR EVERYONE. ONE FRIEND TEXTED BACK , " YESSSSSSSSSS !!!!!!! "

 I ROLL OUT AND STOP AT THE NAIL AGAIN. IT MADE ME A LITTLE SAD TO STOP HERE AND BE CLOSED AT NIGHT. I PICKED UP SOME MORE PAINT AND BOOZE.

 BACK HOME I SETTLE IN WITH WHEELS. WE TRIED A NEW SHOW GINNY & GEORGIA. I STARTED WATCHING THIS SERIES TO LATE AT NIGHT. WHEELS FINISHED AND LIKED IT. I MAY GIVE IT ANOTHER SHOT.

 76ERS LOSE......BLOW. EMBIID SAT OUT.

 I WIND DOWN THE NIGHT AND HEAD TO BED. I SLEPT ANYWHERE FROM OK TO SUCK.

  MONDAY   4 - 5 - 21

 WE DO THIS ALL THE TIME :

  WHAT'S YOUR PERCENTAGE IN GOING NORTH ? WHEELS - " HMMMMM 35% ? " ( ME , I WOULD OF LEFT YESTERDAY )

  WE ARRIVE AND HAVING LUNCH ON THE DECK OVERLOOKING THE LAKE AND WILDLIFE. I ASK AGAIN , " WHAT'S YOUR PERCENTAGE NOW THAT WE WARE HERE ? " SHE RESPONDS , " HMMMMMMMMMM WE SHOULD OF LEFT YESTERDAY."

  OK START THE MORNING DOING STUFF OUTSIDE. HERE IS THE LIST :

 - PICK UP DOG POOP. WE LOOK FOR TINFOIL SINCE MAZE ATE A CADBURY EGG SITTING ON A STEP.

 - COVER FIRE PIT WOOD.

 - PLAY WITH THE PUP. SHE IS PURE JOY.

 - CONSOLIDATE AND PUT TRASH OUT.

 - DRILL HOLES IN WOOD BORDERS AND PLACE NEW DRIVEWAY LIGHTS.

 - CONSOLIDATE ALL MY TOOLS AND PLACE ON PATIO.

  WHEELS GIVE ME THE GO SIGN. WE LOAD UP AND HEAD NORTH. IT IS FRICKIN' BEAUTIFUL OUT.

 WE MAKE GREAT TIME. WE ALSO TALK TO MY MOM ABOUT EASTER. IT WAS NICE. OH , MAZE SCARES THE BEJESUS OUT OF US AS SHE HIT THE WINDOW BUTTON WITH HER PAW AND IT CAME DOWN....AS WE WERE DRIVING 80 MPH.

  WHEELS DOES NOT LIKE PASSING MACK TRUCKS. BELIEVE IT OR NOT THIS 12 GEAR MINIVAN HAS SOME SERIOUS POWER FOR A MINIVAN. SHE APPROACHES THE TRUCK IN THE LEFT LANE AND SPEEDS UP BIG TIME BLOWING BY THE TRUCK IN THE RIGHT LANE. I SAY , " YOU REALLY SPED UP TO PASS THAT TRUCK ". SHE CASUALLY REPLIES , " YEP ". I REPLY , "  I THINK SPEEDING UP TO A HUNGE IS A LITTLE TOO MUCH. "

 WE ARRIVE AND HAVE LUNCH ON THE DECK. IT IS PICTURE PERFECT. I TALK TO MY BROTHER FOR ABOUT 30 MINUTES.

 WE PLAY WITH MAZE OFF-LEASH. SHE IS SO HAPPY RUNNING PAST US AND ALL AROUND. AGAIN.....PURE JOY.

 LET THE PUNCH LIST BEGIN. IT ALWAYS DOES.

 THE MAIN THING WE WANTED TO SEE WAS THE BRAND NEW WAYFAIR TABLE AND HOW IT WOULD FIT HERE. WE THINK THE TABLE WILL BE WAY SMALLER THAN THE CONFERENCE TABLE THERE NOW. HERE IS HOW THIS WENT :

 - I MEASURE THE LENGTH OF THE TABLE AND BOTH WHEELS AND I ARE TOTALLY SURPRISED IT IS ONLY 1 INCH SHORTER THAN THE CONFERENCE/DINING TABLE HERE NOW. THIS IS A VERY GOOD START. 

 - I MEASURE THE WIDTH AND IT IS ACTUALLY SHORTER BY 4 INCHES WHICH IS TOTALLY FINE WITH US. WE THOUGHT IT BE WIDER THAN THE TABLE HERE. AGAIN , THIS IS GOOD.

 - WE PICKED UP 2 TABLES ON FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE. WE ONLY WANTED THE LEGS. THE LEGS WE GOT YESTERDAY FIT PERFECTLY BUT WE NEED TO PAINT THEM. I SET UP EVERYTHING OUTSIDE TO PAINT THEM. ALL THIS TIME SPENT GETTING TABLES AND FITTING LEGS ON THE NEW TABLE. IT WAS FREE SO WE FIGURED IT WAS GOOD TIME SPENT. THE LEGS JUST DID NOT MATCH THE TABLE BUT WE COULD ADAPT.

 - THAN WHEELS COMES UP WITH AN EXCELLENT SUGGESTION. WE FLIP THE DINING/CONFERENCE ROOM TABLE THAT IS HERE NOW AND SEE WE CAN ACTUALLY REMOVE THE GREY LEGS TO THE NEW WAYFAIR TABLE. THE GREY MATCHES WITH OUR CHURCH PEW BENCH. THIS IS A REALLY GOOD CALL.

 - TOGETHER WE REMOVE THE 2 LEGS AND RE-APPLY THEM TO THE NEW WAYFAIR TABLE. WE HAD TO DO SOME MACGYVERING  BUT IT WORKED PERFECT. I THINK OF ALL THE PREPPING I DID FOR ADHERING LEGS , GETTING TABLES ON FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE , AND ALL OF THIS COULD OF BEEN TOTALLY AVOIDED. ANYWAY , I HAD TO COME UP WITH AN IDEA TO LOOSEN A LARGE BOLT WITHOUT MY RACKET SET ( WHICH I TOLD MYSELF TO BRING ) . I USED A LARGE VICE GRIP AND LARGE SCREW DRIVER AS A FULCRUM TO SPIN THE BOLT LOOSE. WE FINISHED REMOVING AND ADDING THE LEGS IN ABOUT 20 MINUTES.

 - WE SLIDE THE DINING/CONFERENCE TABLE OUT TO THE DECK TO GET IT OUT OF THE WAY. BY THE WAY WE GOT THIS TABLE FROM WHEELS' OLD WORK 28 YEARS AGO. WE DON'T KNOW HOW LONG IT WAS IN THAT OFFICE SO THIS TABLE COULD TECHNICALLY BE 40+ YEARS OLD.

 - OK....SO NOW WE ARE EXCITED TO SLIDE IN THE NEW TABLE. EVERYTHING IS GOING PREFECT....HEIGHT , WIDTH , LEGS , FOLD OUT LEAF , ETC.   BUT MY LUCK DOES NOT ALLOW HAPPINESS.

 - WE PLACE THE TABLE IN AND IT IS VERY WOBBLY. WHEELS LIFTS THE TABLE AND I ADJUST THE CANISTERS BENEATH EACH LEG. THIS WORKS GOOD. OK.....WOBBLINESS SOLVED.

 - WE NOTICE THE CHAIRS DO NOT SLIDE UNDER THE TABLE ALL THE WAY. THIS TABLE HAS DOUBLE WOOD SUPPORTS ALONG THE EDGES WHICH HINDER THE CHAIRS FROM SLIDING IN ALL THE WAY UNDER. I TEST A CHAIR AND I CAN SIT PERFECTLY IF USING NORMALLY. THE CHAIRS DO STICK OUT A LITTLE BIT. OK , WE CAN LIVE WITH IT.

 - THE SHAPE OF THE TABLE IS RECTANGULAR. THE OLD TABLE IS OVAL. WE AGREE WE LIKE THE OVAL SHAPE BETTER ESPECIALLY GETTING IN AND OUT ALONG THE CHURCH PEW SIDE. THIS TABLE IS 4 INCHES LESS IN WIDTH SO SLIDING IT OUT A LITTLE BIT SOLVES THIS PROBLEM. WE ARE REALLY WORKING WITH THIS TO MAKE IT WORK.

 - THE FINAL DILEMMA. WE EVEN

 SEND PICTURES TO OUR KIDS FOR OPINIONS. IT IS MIXED. HERE IS THE PROBLEM - THIS $1,000 TABLE IS BRAND NEW ,  BEAUTIFUL , AND WE GOT IT FOR FREE. THESE ARE GOOD FACTORS TO TRY TO KEEP IT. BUT , THE COLOR JUST DOES NOT QUITE MATCH THE DINING AREA OF CHURCH PEW , CHAIRS , WOOD WALLS , AND MORE. IT IS DEFINITELY A " WOODSY " LOOKING TABLE  BUT BOTH OF US NOW MUST MAKE A DECISION.

 - WE DECIDE TO WAIT A COUPLE OF DAYS TO SEE IF IT GROWS ON US. WHEELS LIKED IT AT FIRST AND NOW IS MOVING AWAY FROM KEEPING IT. I WAS THE OPPOSITE. I DID NOT LIKE IT AT FIRST AND NOW IT IS GROWING ON ME.

 WHEELS WALKS THE PUP WHILE I RE-ARRANGE ALL DECK FURNITURE BACK TO THEIR USUAL SPOTS ( GRRRRR....RENTERS ) , COVER THE BBQ , PICK-UP A SNOW SHOVEL IN THE BACK YARD & PUT IT WHERE IT BELONGS , PICK UP CIGARETTE BUTTS ( GRRRRR ) , PICK UP PIECES OF METAL & TISSUES , FIX WELCOME MATS , AND LEAF BLOW THE WHOLE DECK.

 WE HAVE A NICE DINNER ON THE DECK OVERLOOKING THE LAKE. ONE GUY IS FISHING. IT CAN NOT GET MORE PRISTINE THAN THIS.

 INSIDE WE SETTLE IN. I FINISH THE WANDAVISION SERIES. IT WAS GOOD. I WANTED A BETTER ENDING WITH A BETTER BAD GUY BUT I DID LIKE IT.

 I ALSO FIND OUT WE HAVE HBO MAX ON OU RROKU TV HERE. THANK YOU RENTERS ALONG WITH DISNEY PLUS. I ALSO WANTED TO WATCH THE 12TH & FINAL SEASON OF THE BIG BANG THEORY. WITH NO COMMERCIALS THEY ARE ONLY 18 MINUTES LONG. WE WATCH 2. WHEELS LAUGHED OUT LOUD AT LEAST 5 TIMES.

 FLYERS WITH A BIG EXCITING OVERTIME 3-2 WIN. THAT WAS FUN BECAUSE WE NEVER BEAT THE BRUINS.

 PHILLIES COME BACK FROM A 2 - 0 DEFICIT WITH A 5 RUN 8TH INNING. I HATE THE METS , I HATE THEIR FANS , AND I HATE THEIR FANS MORE WHEN THEY COME TO OUR STADIUM. THEY WERE SO HAPPY WITH THEIR ALLSTAR/BEST PITCHER IN THE WHOLE MLB WHEN UP 2 - 0. I SO ENJOYED THIS WIN. THE CLOSER MADE IT MORE INTERESTING THAN IT SHOULD OFF BEEN. HE STRUCK OUT THE FIRST 2 BATTERS AND THROWING A HUNGE. THE NEXT 4 BATTERS SINGLE. A DEEP FLY OUT TO THE WALL WAS CAUGHT BY HARPER TO END THE GAME. HARPER HAD A CHANCE TO END THE GAME EARLIER ON A SHOE STRING FLY BALL ATTEMPT BUT BOBBLED IT. I THOUGHT HE SHOULD OF CAUGHT IT.

 76ERS GET SMOKED.

 BAYLOR JUST DOMINATED GONZAGA FROM START TO FINISH. IT NEVER REALLY WAS A GAME. I ACTUALLY THINK THEY DESERVED IT.

 TALK TO OUR ELDEST. MY ANTENNAS ARE UP.

 WHEELS AND I ANSWER COLLEGE QUESTIONS GIVEN BY OUR YOUNGEST VIA TEXTING. I ASKED TO DO FACETIME BUT WAS SHOT DOWN WITH THE ANSWER , " IT'S NOT WEDNESDAY. " LATER A " NUDGE " REPLY WAS RECEIVED TOO.

 WE ALSO WATCH AMERICAN IDOL AND THE GOOD DOCTOR.

 OFF TO BED AND SLEPT GOOD FOR ONE HOUR THAN WAKE UP. I DID THIS 5 TIMES. EACH TIME LISTENING TO THE " CALMING " TAPE OVER AND OVER.

  TUESDAY    4 - 6 - 21

  FELT LIKE A MONDAY......ALL DAY. I THINK I SAID IT 10 TIMES.

 WHEELS WITH ANOTHER GOOD COMMENT. UP HERE THE FIRST NEWS STORY IS A PIG ESCAPED ITS ENCLOSURE BUT ALL WERE SAFE. AT HOME ............GUN DEATHS , GUN FIRE , AND DRUGS. IT'S A LITTLE BIT OF A DIFFERENT WORLD HERE.

 THIS WAS A LONG FUN DAY AND NIGHT. ( SO GLAD WE DID SOME OUTSIDE STUFF BECAUSE IT WOULD BE RAINING THE NEXT MORNING )

 PROJECTS :

 - FREE KITCHEN HARDWARE I GOT WILL NOT FIT THE HARDWARE HERE. WE WILL SAVE THEM FOR A RENTAL PROPERTY.

 - LEAF BLOW AWNING ROOF AND MAIN DECK AGAIN. I USED A SMALL LADDER ON TOP OF A PICNIC TABLE TO CLIMB UP ON THE ROOF. WHEN I WAS GETTING DOWN WHEELS IS STARING AT ME. I SAY , " YOU KNOW YOU COULD OF " SPOTTED " THE LADDER."  SHE REPLIES , " I THOUGHT YOU GO THROUGH THE WINDOW TO GET TO THE AWNING. " I PAT MY BELLY AND GET INTERRUPTED BY WHEELS SAYING , " OH MY GOD , YOU CAN'T FIT THROUGH THE WINDOW ? " WE BOTH LAUGHED.

 - MANY TIMES I HAVE USED A WET/DRY VAC TO SUCK UP LOTS OF MOTHS UNDER OUR AWNING. WELL , I NOTICED SOMETHING THE LAST SEVERAL VISITS. SMALL FINCHES & OTHER BIRDS ARE FLYING UNDER AND PICKING THEM OFF THE WINDOW SCREENS AND SIDING......THANKS BIRDIES !!

 - I CLEAN AND CHECK 4 VACUUMS HERE. THREE WILL STAY AND ONE SUPER LOUD ONE WILL BE TRASHED.

 - WE GO THROUGH ALL BEDDING. GOOD GOD THERE IS ENOUGH SHEETS HERE TO FIT 20 BEDS. THE ONES STAYING WERE WASHED.

 - A SMALL STUMP HAS BEEN PIERCING THROUGH OUR DECK FOR 28 YEARS. TODAY I DECIDED TO REMOVE IT. THE STUMP IS SUPER BRITTLE AND THE TRAY I INSTALLED ON TOP IS UNSTABLE AND LOOKS BAD. I SAWZ SALL THE STUMP EASILY AND I JUST HAPPEN TO HAVE A LONG FLOOR DECKING HERE. WE REMOVE DECKING AND REPLACE THE OLD TREE STUMP HOLE WITH FULLER PIECES. ONE SECTION BOTHERS ME BUT IT LOOKS 5X BETTER.

 - 30 MINUTES LATER WE ARE REMOVING A DECK PIECE I JUST INSTALLED BECAUSE OF 2 EXTRA UNNEEDED CUT PIECES. I REPLACE 3 PIECES WITH ONE. THE DECK IS NOW DONE ........AGAIN.

 - PLAY WITH THE PUP OFF-LEASH. OF COURSE SHE FINDS AN OLD PIECE OF CHICKEN CUTLET.

 - I FLEX SEAL 2 CANOES.

 - PICK UP MORE TRASH AND CIGARETTE BUTTS.

 - I AM PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE NO FLYING SQUIRRELS WERE CAUGHT IN TRAPS SINCE WE BEEN HERE 3 MONTHS AGO. I WAS SO RELIEVED WHEN ACCESSING THE ATTIC. I ALSO REPLACED A DRYWALL ACCESS PANEL WITH A WOOD ONE I CUT WHEN I WAS HOME.

 - A RIDE TO THE DOLLAR STORE TO PICK UP SUPPLIES.

 - TIGHTENED SOME DOOR KNOBS.

 - PLACED 2 OARS BACK IN THE MUDROOM. ONE WAS ON TOP OF THE KITCHEN CABINETS AND THE OTHER IN A CLOSET.........UGH.....RENTERS.

 - WALKED MAZE AROUND THE LAKE. SHE ALSO GOT TO MEET A 12 YEAR OLD DOG RIGHT OUT FRONT.

 - CLEANED A FRONT DOOR KICK PLATE.

 - ORGANIZED THE KITCHEN. WE DECIDED TO TOTALLY BRING HOME 4 SUPER COOL BEER GLASSES. WE BROUGHT THEM UP 3 MONTHS AGO AND I MISSED THEM. A BEER OR ANYTHING IN THESE GLASSES ARE TWICE AS GOOD TASTE-WISE FOR SOME REASON.

 - FIXED A FRIDGE SHELF. AND BY FIXING , I MEAN SCOTCH TAPE. DAMN PLASTIC SHELVES ARE SO CHEAP.

 I TAKE A BREAK AND MAKE A GUACAMOLE HAMBURGER. I ALSO SPEED WATCH GODZILLA VS KONG. OH MY GOD THE STORY LINE WAS ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE. SPECIAL EFFECTS WERE VERY GOOD THOUGH. REVIEWS WER ACTUALLY GOOD ON THIS MOVIE.......SERIOUSLY ?

 IT IS WEIRD IF YOU DRIVE JUST 80 MINUTES ALL TV STATIONS HAVE PITTSBURGH SPORTS. TONIGHT WE GOT LUCKY BECAUSE ALL 3 TEAMS WERE TELEVISED NATIONALLY , LOCALLY , AND A NEW YORK STATION....FLYERS , SIXERS , AND PHILLIES. UNFORTUNATELY ONLY THE 76ERS WON.

 WHEELS AND I HEAD TO DAMON'S BBQ. WE HAVE BEEN HERE SEVERAL TIMES. USUALLY IT IS GOOD BUT TONIGHT IT WAS SLIGHTLY OFF.....SLOW TO GET OUR MEALS AND A STEAK TOO FATTY. OUR WAITRESS WAS VERY GOOD THOUGH.

 OUR YOUNGEST SHARED TO ME HOW TO ACCESS HER SPOTIFY PLAYLIST OF 11 HOURS OF GREAT SONGS. I FOUND IT AND PLAYED MY CELL PHONE OVER THE VAN'S BLUETOOTH WIFI. I HAD ONE SONG TO PLAY.....BILLIE EILISH'S BAD GUY.

 OUR ELDEST TEXTS US A PICTURE OF $450 CASH SPREAD OUT ON A TABLE. WITH HER HANDS SHAKING , SHE SAID SHE SPLIT A WINNING BINGO GAME TONIGHT AT A LOCAL PUB. WE TOLD HER , " NOW HEAD HOME ".

 BACK HOME LATE NIGHT WE WATCH SEVERAL EPISODES OF THE BIG BANG THEORY. THESE WERE CLEVERLY WRITTEN.

 A NEIGHBOR TEXTS US PICTURES OF A LARGE BLACK BEAR WITH 3 LARGE CUBS. THIS IS COOL TO SEE BUT FEEDING THE BEARS IS NOT A GOOD IDEA.......ESPECIALLY WHEN OUR HOME IS A DIRECT PATH TO THEIR HOUSE OF BEAR FOOD.

 A WONDERFUL LATE NIGHT FACETIME VIA THE WEST COAST FROM MY NIECE. HER FACE POPPED UP ON MY PHONE AND SHE SHOWED ME A RING ON HER FINGER. WE TALKED WITH HER FIANCÉE FOR OVER 30 MINUTES. OF COURSE I MADE JOKES AND IT WAS REALLY FUN TO GET GOOD NEWS AND MAKE THEM LAUGH.

  WEDNESDAY      4 - 7 - 21

 SO THE CONSENSUS IS IF WE GET NEW DINING ROOM CHAIRS ( WITH NO ARM RESTS ) TO MATCH THE TABLE....IT CAN STAY HERE. I STILL LIKE THE TABLE THOUGH.

 PROJECT GROUT : I LITERALLY HAD JUST ENOUGH GROUT TO FINISH THIS PROJECT. WE HAVE A TILE AREA OF ABOUT 3 X 10 IN FRONT OF OUR DOOR. OVER THE YEARS IT LOOKS HORRIBLE FROM ME CAULKING THE EDGE THAT MEETS THE FRONT WALL AND GROUT FALLING OUT. TODAY I MOVED THE FURNITURE AND RE-GROUTED THE WHOLE AREA. I EVEN BLUE TAPED EVERYTHING BEFORE STARTING WHICH IS AN GOOD THING TO DO FOR SHARP CLEAN EDGES.  OH , THIS WAS FREE BECAUSE I FOUND A BOX OF OLD GROUT IN MY BASEMENT. IT LOOKS 10X BETTER. THE GROUT COULD BE MORE ELASTIC LOOKING THAN THIS GRANULAR LOOK BUT I AM SO OKAY WITH IT NOW.

 BEFORE GROUTING I HAD TO CLEAN A PAINT MIXER FOR MY DRILL. IT WAS ABSOLUTELY SPLOOGED WITH DRY OLD PAINT 10 LAYERS THICK. IT TOOK ME ABOUT 30 MINUTES USING A HAMMER CLAW , UTILITY KNIFE , AND CHANNEL LOCKS TO REMOVE THE OLD DRIED PAINT. IT LOOKED LIKE I DIPPED THE MIXER INTO A PANCAKE/CEMENT BATTER AND IT DRIED FOR 10 YEARS. I AM GLAD I TOOK THE TIME BECAUSE USING A PAINT MIXER WITH A DRILL REALLY MIXES THE GROUT WAY BETTER THAN BY HAND.

 MOVED 2 SECTIONAL COUCHES. BOTH WERE CLEANED AND VACUUMED UNDERNEATH. I FOUND 5 WATER BOTTLES AND A PRACTICE SWITCH BLADE ALONG WITH A TON OF FOOD AND TRASH. WHO JUST BURIES STUFF BETWEEN THE CUSHIONS ?

 PRACTICE SWITCH BLADES ARE CALLED BALISONGS OR BUTTERFLY KNIVES. YES....I HAD NO IDEA EITHER.

 GODZILLA VS KONG STILL BLOWS. I READ GOOD REVIEWS YESTERDAY AND BAD REVIEWS TODAY. ALL THE BAD REVIEWS PARALLELED EXACTLY WHAT I WROTE ABOUT THIS MOVIE.

 PLAY WITH THE PUP OUTSIDE. SHE IS JUST TOO FUNNY. I ALSO WALK HER AROUND THE LAKE AND I PICK UP AS MUCH TRASH AS I CAN. PEOPLE THAT LITTER ( ESPECIALLY AROUND A LAKE ) BLOW.

 USING OUR TV AND ROKU I DOWNLOADED OUR YOUNGEST 11 HOUR PLAYLIST. I FOUND HER USER NAME AND NOW WE HAVE THE SUPER COOL PLAYLIST OF OUTSTANDING SONGS. I PLAYED SONGS FOR 2 HOURS WHILE CLEANING THE GROUT AND COUCHES. EVERY SONG WAS AWESOME. THIS PLAYLIST WE ALL CONTRIBUTED TOO. EACH OF US PICKING FAVORITE SONGS.

 WE NEED THE GROUT TO DRY SO WE PLACE FANS ON THE TILE AREA AND HEAD OUT WITH THE PUP. WE DRIVE TO NESCOPECK PARK ABOUT 10 MINUTES AWAY.

 IT IS A PICTURE PERFECT DAY. THIS PARK IS BIG WITH A 9 ACRE LAKE AND MILES OF TRAILS. IT HAS A PLAYGROUND , BRIDGES , AND WELCOME CENTER. WE WALKED AROUND THE LAKE AND SAID HELLO TO PEOPLE FISHING. TWICE I FORCED MAZE TO GET INTO THE WATER. SHE DRANK THE WATER BOTH TIMES.  I REALLY WANT HER TO LIKE WATER SINCE SHE IS HALF LABRADOR. SHE ONLY WENT IN ANKLE DEEP.....HER ANKLE DEEP THAT IS.

 I TAKE PICTURES AND SEND TO THE KIDS. I ALSO SAID HELLO TO A FEMALE PARK RANGER.

 HEAD HOME AND OUR ELDEST SURPRISES US BY DRIVING UP. THIS IS AWESOME.

 FACETIMED WITH OUR YOUNGEST TWICE......ALWAYS PURE JOY.

 I SHOWER AND SHAVE ( AFTER 4 DAYS ) AND WE HEAD OUT TO CHARLIE WEAVER'S RESTAURANT. WE FIRST STOPPED AT THE LOCAL LIQUOR STORE. ANYWAY , AS ALWAYS THE FOOD IS OVER THE TOP EXCELLENT. ANOTHER COOL THING WE SAT WITH THE OWNERS AND DAUGHTER AFTER THEY CLOSED FOR ABOUT 40 MINUTES. WE TALKED ABOUT THE PANDEMIC AND MORE. I ALSO TOLD THEM THIS IS NOW MY FAVORITE RESTAURANT OF ALL TIME. IT WAS IN MY TOP 5 BUT EVERY TIME WE COME HERE THE FOOD IS OVER THE TOP OUTSTANDING.

 I ALSO HAVE MY MUTED PHONE ON TO WATCH THE END OF THE PHILLIES GAME. A GOOD SOLID BOUNCE BACK WIN OVER THOSE STINKING F'N METS.......8 - 2. I LOATH SEEING MET FANS IN OUR STADIUM. IT MAKES ME SO HAPPY TO KNOW THEY HAVE TO DRIVE HOME SULKING AFTER A BIG LOSS TO OUR PHILLIES !!

 BACK HOME AND WE CHILL OUT ON THE DECK WITH SOME DRINKS , MUSIC , AND PLAY CARDS. IT WAS WONDERFUL.

 I EMAILED A RENTER EARLIER IN THE WEEK THAT WAS SUPPOSE TO RENT OUR HOME THIS WEEKEND. I FINALLY JUST CALL HIM AND HE SAYS THEIR PLANS CHANGED. NO EMAILS OR CALLS OVER WEEKS TO WARN US AFTER WE SENT THEM MULTIPLE EMAILS WITH INFO AND A LEASE. WE EXCHANGED INFORMATION TOO. I TELL HIM ACTUALLY IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL HERE WE WILL STAY SO IT WORKS OUTS. I HANG UP AND TAKE A SHOWER. I GET OUT OF THE SHOWER AND WHEELS TELLS ME HE CALLED BACK AND NOW WANTS THIS WEEKEND.

 WALK THE PUP AT NIGHT. I LABEL WHICH DRIVEWAY LIGHTS ARE NOT WORKING TO TRY TO FIX THEM TOMORROW IN THE DAYLIGHT WHEN THEY ARE OFF.

 WHILE WALKING THE PUP AT NIGHT I GO TO THE END OF OUR DRIVEWAY , WALK THE STREET FOR ABOUT 30 YARDS , AND THAN TAKE THE LAKE PATH BACK TO THE HOUSE. LET ME TELL YOU WALKING IN PITCH BLACK KNOWING MOMMA BEAR IS AROUND KINDA HEIGHTENS THE SENSES AND FEARS.

 INSIDE WE WATCH TV WITH AN EPISODE OF THE BIG BANG THEORY AND CARPOOL KARAOKE. MILEY CYRUS FAMILY WAS PRETTY FUN. THE MOM IS A PIECE OF ASS.

 OFF TO BED AROUND 10:30PM. I LIKE TO ANNOUNCE I FELL ASLEEP PRETTY QUICKLY AND DID NOT WAKE UP OR PEE UNTIL 5:30AM......I THINK. ANYWAY , IT FELT LIKE I GOT 7 STRAIGHT HOURS OF SLEEP. I GOT OUT OF BED AROUND 6:30AM TO WALK AND FEED THE PUP. IT IS A BEAUTIFUL MORNING.

  THURSDAY     4 - 8 - 21

 I KNOW I'M GOING TO FALL. I KNOW I'M GOING TO FALL. I KNOW I'M GOING TO FALL. I KNOW I'M GOING TO FALL.

  SOME MORE LITTLE PROJECTS BUT TODAY WAS CHILL DAY.

  LAST TIME HERE I COULD NOT FIND THE HORSESHOE PIT POLES. I REPLACED THEM. WELL , LOOKS LIKE RENTERS REMOVED THE POLES DURING A BIG SNOW STORM BECAUSE NOW THE WEATHER IS BEAUTIFUL AND I FOUND THE 2 ORIGINAL POLES. MAN RENTERS GET ON MY NERVES SOMETIMES.

 IT IS OFFICIAL A RENTER WILL BE COMING IN TOMORROW. AFTER WEEKS OF NO COMMUNICATION AND ME FINALLY CONTACTED THEM AND THE GUY SAYING " NO " ......IN UNDER 5 MINUTES HE CALLED BACK AND CHANGED HIS MIND. WE EXCHANGED VENMO AND WILL DO CASH.

 I MOVED 50 BROKEN BRANCHES OFF THE PATH AT THE CORNER OF OUR PROPERTY.

 THE GOOD THING OUR ELDEST VISITING IS A 2ND CAR TO BRING STUFF HOME. OUR VAN WAS PACKED. A 2ND VEHICLE WILL HELP BIG TIME.

 I WALK THE DOG AROUND THE LAKE. THERE IS A SMALL CUT-THROUGH TO THE BEACH. ALL I HAVE TO DO IS GO DOWN A TINY SMALL LITTLE 2 FOOT HILL. I WOULDN'T EVEN CALL IT A " HILL " , MORE LIKE A SPEED BUMP EMBANKMENT.  I AM IN FLIP FLOPS AND TELL MYSELF , " I KNOW I'M GOING TO FALL. " WELP.......I FELL. BY THE 3RD SIDEWAY SUPER SLOW STEP ONE FLIP FLOP SLIPPED OUT AND BIG FATTY SLAMMED AGAINST THE GROUND SIDEWAYS. THE SMALL TREMOR CREATED SET 2 CAR ALARMS OFF.

 OH , ONE MORE THING ABOUT THE FALL. AS I WAS FALLING THE DOG THOUGHT I WAS PLAYING. SHE JUMPED AT ME AND WE BUTTED HEADS AS I WAS FALLING. YEP........FELT LIKE AN ASSHOLE.

 BACK HOME I SIT ON A BENCH BY THE HORSESHOE PIT. I JUST GOT DOWN RAKING THE HORSESHOE PITS AND THE DOG DIGS IN THEM. I SWEAR THIS DOG IS SUCH AN ASSHOLE SOMETIMES. I REALLY FEEL SHE DOES IT ON PURPOSE. AS SOON AS I SAT DOWN SHE STARTED DIGGING. SAND WAS FLYING ALL OVER THE PLACE.

 A GUY FISHING YELLS TO ME , " DID YOU SEE THAT FISH ? " I WAS PRETTY FAR BUT COULD SEE IT WAS GOOD SIZE. I WALK UP TO HIM AND HE SAYS IT WAS ABOUT A 5 POUND PICKEREL. THESE FISH ARE THE BARRACUDAS OF THIS LAKE.

 IT IS PICTURE PERFECT AND I DO NOT WANT TO LEAVE.

 INSIDE I TEXT OUR ROKU TV AND FIND WE HAVE A MOVIE STATION AND STARZ....THANKS RENTERS !!

 WE TAKE A RIDE TO FREELAND DINER. WE WANTED TO TRY SOMETHING NEW AND OUR LOCAL DINER WAS CLOSED. FOOD AND PRICE WERE OKAY TO GOOD. OUR WAITRESS WAS OVER A 100 AND REALLY DID NOT GRASP THE IDEA OF WEARING A MASK. DOES IT BOTHER ANYONE ELSE WHEN THEIR NOSE STICKS OUT ?

 BACK HOME WE DO SOME MORE SMALL PROJECTS BUT WE STOP AT THE DOLLAR STORE , LOCAL GAS STATION , AND PICKED UP WORMS.....YEP....WORMS.

 BACK HOME THE GIRLS FISH AND I AM THEIR BAIT BOY. THE PUP JOINS US AND OUR ELDEST CAUGHT A LARGE PERCH RIGHT AWAY. IT IS SO NICE TO HAVE AN 8 SECOND WALK TO THE LAKE AND BEGIN FISHING. THE GIRLS PREPPED THE RODS BEFORE LEAVING. THE WHOLE TIME I WAS THERE I BAITED WORMS , CONSOLIDATED 2 TACKLE BOXES , FIXED RODS , AND TOOK PICTURES.   WE HAD CHAIRS , MUSIC , AND OUR ELDEST CAUGHT 6 FISH......PERCH AND SUNNIES. IT WAS SO DAMN RELAXING AND NICE.

 BACK HOME WE CHILL AND SHOWER. WE WATCH SOME TV AND I CHECK OUT OUR DRIVEWAY LIGHTS.

 WE ROLL OUT TO CHARLIE WEAVERS AGAIN. THE FOOD IS JUST THAT GOOD. THE OWNER SITS WITH US AGAIN. ANOTHER GOOD TIME AND PHENOMENAL FOOD.

 BACK HOME WE ARE STOPPED AT THE GATE. IT IS THE ANGRY OLD LADY THAT WE ARE ALWAYS SUPER NICE TOO. FOR THE 2ND TIME WE RETURN AND GAVE HER OUR LEFTOVER WINE AND A PLASTIC CUP. SHE THANKED US AND SAID WE WERE CRAZY. WHEELS DROVE BACK WHILE I CHECKED ON THE DAMN DRIVEWAY LIGHTS NOT WORKING PROPERLY.

 THE GIRLS WATCH GIRLY SHOWS WHILE I WATCH THE FLYERS ON MY PHONE AND TV ( DURING THEIR COMMERCIALS ). FLYERS LOSE IN A SHOOT-OUT....BIG SURPRISE.

 OFF TO BED. I WAS TIRED AND FELT EXTRA FAT. AROUND 10:45PM I FALL ASLEEP. I AM LOOKING FOR 2 NIGHTS IN A ROW OF A 7 HOUR STRAIGHT SLEEP. LAST NIGHT I SLEPT 7 STRAIGHT HOURS. IT WAS GLORIOUS. AT 11:35PM WHEELS WAKES ME UP ASKING WHERE THE BAND-AIDS ARE. I TOSSED AND TURNED THE REST OF THE NIGHT UNTIL 6AM AND JUST GOT UP. WORST NIGHT EVER. WHAT SUCKS WHEN SHE WOKE ME UP I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO GET ASS. SO , THIS NIGHT KINDA SUCKED IN TWO WAYS.

  FRIDAY   4 - 9 - 21

 ALL DAY I FOUGHT STAYING AWAKE. LAST NIGHT BLEW ASS. WHEELS DID APOLOGIZE BY WAKING ME FOR BAND-AIDS AND SAID NEXT TIME SHE WILL OFFER ASS.

 SHE DID NOT OFFER ASS.

 START MORNING EARLY. I FOUGHT SLEEP ALL NIGHT AND TOSSED AND TURNED. I FINALLY JUST GOT UP AT 5:45AM. TO ME , IT IS KINDA DEPRESSING GETTING UP IN THE DARK.

 DO MY NORMAL STUFF AND SOME LITTLE PROJECTS LIKE PUTTING A CLOSET BACK TOGETHER.

 I DECIDE TO HAVE A LATE BREAKFAST AND WATCH THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS TOKYO DRIFT. I COULD NOT GET IT FOR FREE AT HOME BUT AGAIN THIS ROKU TV HERE STEPS UP. OH , THE MOVIE WAS ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE. THE ONLY GOOD THING WAS THE LAST 30 SECONDS WHERE VIN DIESEL MADE AN APPEARANCE. ONLY ONE REGULAR WAS IN THE ENTIRE MOVIE WHO I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW UNTIL THE ENDING. THE CAR RACE SCENES ARE SO UNREALISTIC THEY ARE LAUGHABLE.

 CLEAN AND LOAD MODE....BLOW. I PLACE THE DOG ON OUR LONG RUNNER LEASH AND WE BEGIN PACKING BOTH VEHICLES AND CLEANING. IT IS SO NICE TO HAVE 2 PEOPLE BECAUSE CLEANING AND PACKING BY YOURSELF ABSOLUTELY BLOWS.

 WE SAY GOODBYE TO OUR ELDEST WHO IS GOING TO WAIT FOR A FAMILY TO ARRIVE TO PAY US CASH. THEY TOLD US BETWEEN 4 - 5PM. WE LEAVE AT 1:10PM.

 WE MADE EXCELLENT TIME AND ARRIVE HOME AT 2:25PM. I FRICKIN' LOVE DRIVEWAY TO DRIVEWAY IT JUST TAKES 75 MINUTES. I TELL WHEELS I AM 95% SURE I LIKE TO GO BACK ON SUNDAY.

 WE UNLOAD AND SETTLE IN.

 RENTER TEXTS ME AT 4:35PM THEY HAVE NOT LEFT YET AND HAVING CAR TROUBLES. I AM SLIGHTLY ANNOYED BECAUSE THEY TOLD ME ARRIVAL BE BETWEEN 4 TO 5PM. WHY TEXT SO LATE NOW ? I ASK HIM TO CALL ME. HE TELLS ME 6:30PM AT THE LATEST. I NOW FEEL BAD FOR OUR ELDEST WHO IS WAITING. WE UPDATE HER.

 RENTER TEXTS BACK THEY ARE LEAVING NOW AND WILL BE THERE BY 5:30PM. THIS IS BETTER. THEY ARRIVE , EXCHANGE THE CASH , AND HE TELLS ME HOW BEAUTIFUL OUR HOME IS. IT IS APPRECIATED.

 PHILLIES AND 76ERS LOSE....BLOW. BACK TO THE NORMAL " WE SUCK " MODE.

 WE WATCH A TRUE STORY CALLED GREYHOUND WITH TOM HANKS. IT IS A WORLD WAR II SETTING WITH 4 BATTLESHIPS WHO MUST ESCORT 37 SOLDIER & SUPPLY VESSELS TO ENGLAND. THE MAIN PROBLEM......NAZI U-BOATS WOLF PACKS. IT WAS PRETTY MUCH NON-STOP HEART POUNDING ACTION THE ENTIRE FILM. HOW THE HELL THESE YOUNG SOLDIERS DID THIS IS UNIMAGINABLE. IT WAS THE COMMANDER'S ( TOM HANKS ) FIRST WARTIME MISSION. " THE BATTLE OF THE ATLANTIC " WAS THE LARGEST LONGEST AND MOST COMPLEX NAVAL BATTLE IN OUR HISTORY.

 BY 10:30PM I AM TIRED AND HEAD TO BED. I PLAY SOME POKER , LOOK ON FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE , AND WATCH RIDICULOUSNESS. BY 11:30PM I FALL ASLEEP.

 AT 1AM MY CELL CONTINUES TO PING WITH TEXTS. THIS CAN'T BE GOOD. I WON'T GET INTO IT BUT I END UP WALKING UP THE STREET TO A PUB AND THAN DRIVING TO ANOTHER BAR AT 2:30AM.

 BACK HOME I TRY TO GO BACK TO SLEEP BY 3:30AM.

 A WEIRD DREAM OF J. OB LOSING WEIGHT BIG TIME BY HAVING HIS STOMACH STAPLED. HE WAS LIKE 110 POUNDS. HE ALSO CRASHED CARS , WAS SUPER DRUNK , POLICE GOT INVOLVED , CASH ALL OVER THE PLACE , AND ME DRIVING EVERYONE TO SAFETY IN A LARGE WHITE VAN. THAT IS THE QUICKIE VERSION.

 OH , ONE MORE THING , THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS: TOKYO DRIFT WAS AGAIN.....SO F'N BAD.  30+ AGE ACTORS PLAYING 17 YEAR OLDS , CARS RACING ( DRIFTING ) AT A 100MPH ALONG WINDY AND HIGH MOUNTAIN CLIFFS , AND DRIVERS LOOKING AT EACH OTHER WHILE DOING 100 MPH ON HIGH MOUNTAIN CLIFFS. IT COULD BE THE STUPIDEST MOVIE OF ALL THE SERIES YET. THE PLUS......EVERY GIRL IN JAPAN IS A SMOKE SHOW.

 SATURDAY      4 - 10 - 21

 I CAN NOT REMEMBER THE LAST TIME I MOVED A NAIL SHOW SO I COULD HOST A FAMILY GET TOGETHER. IT HAS TO BE OVER 20 YEARS. TODAY....WHEELS AND I DID THAT. TO ME , IN THIS COVID TIME , OR AS MY BROTHER SAYS " THE COVID " , NOTHING ELSE MATTERED. 

 FIRST , I HAVE TO THANK OCTOBER BLACK FOR PERFORMING AN OFF LOCATION LIVE STREAM SHOW FOR THE NAIL AND THE SALVEY FAMILY. WE WORKED OUT THE DETAILS AND THIS GAVE US THE OPPORTUNITY TO THROW A GET TOGETHER.

 NOW OUR LONG DAY BUT I HAD AN ABSOLUTE BLAST. IT WAS THE FIRST TIME WE GOT TOGETHER WITH ALOT OF FAMILY IN OVER A YEAR. IT WAS DOWNRIGHT WONDERFUL.

 FIRST TO PREP. I HEAD TO THE NAIL FOR BEER AND BOOZE. I ALSO MAKE A FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE STOP FOR AN AIRPOD EAR PLUGS. I PICKED THIS NEW PRODUCT UP FOR OUR ELDEST. THEY RUN AROUND $150. I GOT THIS NEW ONE FOR $10. THE LOCATION WAS JUST BLOCKS FROM THE NAIL.

 HEAD TO THE CITY TO PICK UP OUR YOUNGEST. THE KID JUST MELTS ME. IT IS PRETTY FUNNY AS MY ONE BROTHER TREATS AND JOKES WITH HIS DAUGHTER EXACTLY LIKE I DO.....WITH LOTS OF HUMOR. I ALWAYS FELT HUMOR BRINGS FAMILY CLOSER THAN BEING STRICT LIKE MY DAD WAS WITH ME. 

  MY NIECE SHOWS ME A VIDEO OF HER DAD ( MY BROTHER ) MAKING A WAKE-UP MESSAGE TO BE READY FOR PICK-UP TODAY. IT WAS AN EMOJI OF POOP. IT TALKED AND MADE EXPRESSIONS WITH MY BROTHER'S VOICE. IT WAS DAMN FUNNY.

 BACK HOME WHEELS IS IN COOK & CLEAN MODE. THE KIDS HELP TOO. I SPEND ABOUT 45 MINUTES FIXING OUR PATIO UMBRELLAS. IT SEEMED EVERY TIME I FIX ONE SECTION ANOTHER SECTION WOULD BREAK. MY YOUNGEST WAS GIGGLING AT ME. I HAVE TO ADMIT THEY CAME OUT REALLY NICE.

 MOVE VEHICLES TO BACK YARD GRASS AND LEAF BLOW PATIO.

 INSTALLED NEW AMERICAN FLAGS AND THE NEW DRIVEWAY LIGHTS LOOK REALLY GOOD.

 LAWN GRASS IS HIGHER THAN I THOUGHT SO I GOT MY RIDING MOWER OUT. I AM SO SURPRISED THIS THING STARTS UP EVERY SEASON. I DO A QUICK CUT OF OUR WHOLE PROPERTY.

 I SHOWER AND BY THE TIME I GOT OUT FAMILY STARTED ARRIVING. IT WAS UNBELIEVABLY GOOD TO SEE EVERYONE. SO GOOD ME AND MY BROTHER HUMPED MY SISTER-IN-LAW FROM THE FRONT AND BACK. HE GOT THE BACK SO I WAS KINDA JEALOUS.

 ANYWAY , WE TOLD STORIES , TALKED MOVIES AND TV ( MOSTLY AVENGER STUFF THAT I HAVE NO CLUE ABOUT ) CAUGHT UP WITH EACH OTHER , AND LAUGHED PRETTY MUCH FOR 6 STRAIGHT HOURS. I THINK I SAID , " THIS IS WONDERFUL " 50 TIMES. WE HAD A TON OF FOOD , DESERT , AND BOOZE. WE SPREAD OUT WITH THE KIDS PLAYING BALL IN THE BACK YARD WHILE ADULTS SAT AT OUR PATIO WHICH I SPREAD OUT A LITTLE MORE THAN USUAL. THE ONLY THING I FELT BAD WAS PUTTING OUR PUP IN THE BASEMENT. FOR THE KIDS SAKE I DID THIS BECAUSE I WANTED NO DISTRACTIONS FOR THE ADULTS. IT WORKED OUT PERFECT.

 OH THE WEATHER WORKED OUT PERFECT AFTER WE THOUGHT RAIN MIGHT BE INVOLVED.

 THE OLDER KIDS TOOK THE YOUNGER KIDS TO OUR BRAND NEW REMODELED PARK. THEY WERE THERE A SOLID 1 HOUR WHEN ME AND MY BROTHERS ARRIVED. WE HAD THE WHOLE ENCLOSURE TO OURSELVES AND STAYED ANOTHER HOUR. NO ONE WAS AROUND AND THIS MADE IT MORE FUN AND SAFE. WE PLAYED HIDE & SEEK , TAG , AND CAPTURE. I ACTUALLY RAN FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 25 YEARS. I WAS DAMN CLOSE TO GETTING A STROKE. IT WAS ALOT OF FUN FOR THE KIDS TOO TO HAVE THEIR UNCLES AND COUSINS PLAYING WITH THEM. I LIKED THE CUSHIONY FOAM FLOOR ON THE ENTIRE PLAYGROUND. IT REALLY MADE ME FEEL LESS FAT AND I COULD BOUNCE QUITE EASILY.  SEEING MY DAUGHTERS PLAY WITH THEIR COUSINS WAS SUPER SPECIAL TOO. IT HAS BEEN SO LONG FOR ANY OF US TO GET TOGETHER. THIS WAS MORE THAN PERFECT SINCE WE HAD THE WHOLE PARK TO OURSELVES. I LITERALLY LOVED EVERY SECOND.

 OH , I HAD TO SUBSTITUTE ME FOR MY BROTHER IN A GAME OF TEAM CAPTURE. I JUST CAN'T RUN ANYMORE. I SWEAR MY DAD WITH HIS 2 CANES COULD BEAT ME IN RACE. IN FACT , MY BROTHERS AND OLDER NIECES RACED THE LITTLE KIDS. I WAS OUT OF BREATH JUST WATCHING THEM RACE. I DID FLAG DOWN A JACK & JILL TRUCK FOR ENERGY.

 BACK HOME SOME OF US WATCH THE PHILLIES LOSE AGAIN AS DESERT AND COFFEE WAS SERVED. SOME STAYED ON THE PATIO AND SOME SAT INSIDE AT OUR TABLE. WE PRETTY MUCH SPREAD OUT 20 PEOPLE PERFECTLY.  I WAS SO GLAD I MOVED MY SCHEDULE AROUND TO MAKE THIS GET TOGETHER HAPPEN.

 OH PHILLIES LOSE AGAIN. ANNNNNNNNND HERE WE GO GETTING SUCKED IN WITH THAT 4 - 0 START.

 76ERS WIN.

 OH , I DID REALIZE SOMETHING DEPRESSING. EVERYONE IS IN GREAT SHAPE EXCEPT ME. I MEAN EVERYONE INCLUDING MY 92 YEAR OLD DAD LOOKS BETTER THAN ME.

 THIS WAS A SPECIAL TIME IN A REALLY CRAPPY SHITTY WORLD RIGHT NOW AND I SO NEEDED IT. WE HAD GREAT CONVERSATION , JOKED WITH OUR OLDER NIECES & NEPHEWS ATTENDING COLLEGE , AND LAUGHED ALL NIGHT. I ACTUALLY STAYED UP TO 1AM.

 WHEELS AND I CLEAN UP AND OUR YOUNGEST GETS A RIDE BACK TO COLLEGE WITH HER AUNT AND COUSIN. EVERYONE ROLLS OUT AND WE SETTLE IN. AGAIN I SAY , " THIS WAS SO WONDERFUL. " WHEELS AGREED. IT WAS SO DAMN GOOD TO SEE EVERYONE.

 MOST OF OUR FAMILY HAS RECEIVED THEIR SHOTS. WE GET THE 1ST ROUND ON THURSDAY.

 OFF TO BED WHERE THE PUP JOINED ME. SHE WAS TRAUMATIZED FOR BEING LOCKED IN THE BASEMENT BUT I PETTED HER FOR A SOLID 30 MINUTES TO MAKE SURE SHE KNEW I STILL LOVE HER BIG TIME.

 SUNDAY     4 - 11 - 21

 GLAD WE CLEANED UP OUTSIDE LAST NIGHT BECAUSE THE RAIN DID COME. I AM STILL FEELING SO GOOD I GOT TO MEET ALOT OF FAMILY YESTERDAY. MY FAVORITE WAS A VERY YOUNG NIECE THAT HAD A CONVERSATION WITH ME. IT IS A SUCH A JOY TO SEE KIDS GO FROM MOM HUGGERS TO MORE INDEPENDENT AND NOW TALKING TO THEIR UNCLES AND AUNTS. ALL KIDS DO THIS BUT IT IS EXTRA SPECIAL WHEN YOU PHYSICALLY SEE IT. I TOLD MY SISTER-IN-LAW HOW HER DAUGHTER HAS GROWN SO MUCH IN THIS PAST YEAR.

 WHEELS WORKS FOR ABOUT 10 HOURS WITH TECH SUPPORT. YEP ON A SUNDAY BUT IT IS MUCH TOLERATED SINCE SHE HAS BEEN OFF FOR 3 WEEKS. THEY ARE MAKING PROGRESS IN SOLVING THE RANSOM-WARE AND GETTING BACK ONLINE.

 WE BEGIN TO PACK AND LOAD UP.

  WE HEAD NORTH IN THE RAIN. IT WAS NOT TOO BAD. WHEELS WAS THINKING ABOUT NOT GOING AND I SAID , " I RATHER BE IN THE RAIN UP NORTH THAN IN THE RAIN HERE. "

 WE MAKE VERY GOOD TIME AND SETTLE IN.  IT IS DRIZZLING BUT SO DAMN NICE HERE. ONE FRIEND TEXTS OUR ELDEST , " MAN THAT IS PRETTY COOL YOU CAN JUST GET UP AND GO NORTH. " WE AGREED.

 OFF TO OUR FAVORITE RESTAURANT CHARLIE WEAVERS. AGAIN THEY DID NOT DISAPPOINT. THE FOOD IS JUST OVER THE TOP EXCELLENT.

 BACK HOME THE PUP GREETS US LIKE SHE HAS NOT SEEN US IN 5 YEARS. IT WAS THE HARDEST I EVER SEEN HER WAG HER TAIL. IT WAS ADORABLE.

 WE WATCH A MOVIE CALLED THUNDER FORCE. IT STARRED MELISSA MCCARTHY AND OCTAVIA SPENCER. I REALLY EXPECTED THIS TO BE A PLAYFUL FUNNY HERO-TYPE MOVIE ESPECIALLY WITH THESE 2 ACTRESSES. IT WAS NOT. IT WAS BAD. I MEAN REAL BAD. THE REVIEWS WERE SO AWFUL I WOULD BORDERLINE SAY PEOPLE ARE EVIL. ONE PERSON WROTE , " I RATHER SEE MY FAMILY MURDERED THAN WATCH ONE MORE SECOND OF THUNDER FORCE. " OKAY THAT IS A SEVERALLY EXTREME REVIEW TO WRITE BUT OVERALL IT WAS A VERY BAD MOVIE IN MY OPINION.

 WE WATCH THE LAST INNING OF THE PHILLIES. THEY WIN ON A VERY CONTROVERSIAL AND REVIEWED HOME -PLATE PLAY. I KNOW IT IS SUPER EARLY IN THE SEASON BUT THIS WIN WAS PRETTY DAMN BIG.

 BEFORE DINNER AND BEFORE BED I WORK ON A SMALL SMASHED PIECE OF DRYWALL. I DID NOT MIND......TOO MUCH.

 I SLEPT PRETTY GOOD AND DID NOT WAKE UP UNTIL 5AM. I DID HAVE A DREAM THAT WAS PRETTY COOL BUT AGAIN I FORGOT IT.

 MONDAY    4 - 12 - 21

 EPIC FAILS ON FACEBOOK MARKETPLACE TODAY.

 MATCHING THIS NEW $1,000 MOUNTAIN HOUSE TABLE IS HARDER THAN ME LEAVING COOKIES ALONE ON A KITCHEN TABLE.

 A VERY NICE MAN LOWERS HIS PRICE FROM $45 TO FREE FOR A VERY NICE LIGHT OAK DINING ROOM TABLE , 2 LEAFS , AND 5 CHAIRS. HE EVEN MEETS US AT A LOCAL WALMART.  WE LOAD UP AND GO INTO WALMART. I BUY WASP SPRAY AND MY ELDEST BUYS $70 WORTH OF SPONGE BOB MAKE-UP.

 WE STOP AT LOWE'S TO LOOK FOR DRIVEWAY LIGHTS , A SLIDING GLASS DOOR , PAINT , AND STAIN.

 G.P.S. TAKES US THE WRONG WAY HOME AND WE LOSE ABOUT 15 MINUTES.

  WE ARRIVE HOME AND TEST THE CHAIRS TO SEE IF THEY MATCH OUR TABLE.....NOT EVEN CLOSE. WE TEST THE STAIN AND PAINT  WE JUST BOUGHT TO SEE IF EITHER WOULD CHANGE THE COLOR TO THE TABLE TO MATCH BETTER.....NOT EVEN CLOSE. THIS WAS A COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY.

 I PLACE THE TABLE AND CHAIRS I JUST PICKED UP ON FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE.  I GET 15 PEOPLE INTERESTED IN LESS THAN 15 MINUTES. I EVEN OFFER TO DRIVE THE STUFF LOCAL. ONE LADY BEGS ME TO DRIVE IT TO MOSCOW , PA. WHICH IS A 1 HOUR DRIVE FROM HERE....ONE WAY. I POLITELY SAY GO FUCK YOURSELF.

 STORY 2 - A DAUGHTER IS GIVING AWAY DINING ROOM CHAIRS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. WHEELS , MYSELF , AND OUR KIDS ALL CHECK OUT THE PICTURES. THEY SEEM LIKE THEY BE A GOOD MATCH FOR THE MOUNTAIN HOUSE TABLE SO I INQUIRE. SHE TELLS ME THEY HAVE " SOLD ". FIVE HOURS LATER SHE MESSAGES ME THAT SHE THOUGHT HER MOM SOLD THEM ( GAVE AWAY ) BUT WAS WRONG. THEY ARE AVAILABLE NOW. THESE CHAIRS HAVE BEEN SITTING IN HER MOM'S HOUSE FOR AT LEAST 6 WEEKS. I TELL HER I CAN PICK THEM UP ON FRIDAY. SHE SAYS THAT WILL NOT WORK BECAUSE THEY WANT THEM OUT OF THE HOUSE BY WEDNESDAY. I TRY TO THINK OF MANY WAYS TO ALLOW THEM TO KEEP THE CHAIRS JUST 2 MORE DAYS PAST WEDNESDAY.........ANYTHING....LEAVE AT  A NEIGHBOR'S HOUSE , BACK YARD , PILE IN A CORNER , LEAVE THE CHAIRS WHERE THEY ARE NOW.....ETC.  NOPE.....THEY WANT THEM OUT.  SHE MESSAGES ME BACK AND SAYS HER MOM IS GIVING THEM TO A NEIGHBOR. I SWEAR TO CHRIST FUCKING PEOPLE !!

  WE DECIDE TO FILL OUT OUR FORMS FOR GETTING VACCINE SHOTS. OUR YOUNGEST JOINS US VIA FACETIME. IT WAS FUN JOKING WITH HER. WHEELS COULD NOT FIND THE PAPERWORK AT FIRST AND SAID " SHE STUFFED IT SOMEWHERE. " I ASKED OUR ELDEST TO LOOK FOR THE PAPERWORK " STUFFED SOMEWHERE " . SHE FOUND IT IN A WORK COMPUTER BAG.

 WHEELS AND I WALK MAZE OFF-LEASH AROUND THE LAKE. MAN , DID THIS PUP RUN. FOR THE MOST PART SHE STAYED CLOSE.

 WE WATCH CARPOOL KARAOKE AND SOME EPISODES OF THE LAST SEASON OF THE BIG BANG THEORY. BOTH WERE GOOD.

 PHILLIES POSTPONED AND LOOKS LIKE A DOUBLE HEADER TOMORROW. I AM NOT SURE IF THEY ARE STILL DOING THE 7 INNING GAMES FOR DOUBLE HEADERS.

 76ERS BEAT MAVERICKS BUT LOSE TO TIMBERWOLVES....GO FIGURE.

 YOUNGEST HAD A STRESSFUL DAY AT COLLEGE. SHE HAD A PARTNER PRESENTATION FOR A CLASS TODAY. WELL , HER PARTNER DID NOT SHOW UP FOR THE FIRST 30 MINUTES OF THE PRESENTATION. SHE CLAIMED SHE " THOUGHT " THE CLASS WAS AT 11:30AM AND NOT 11AM. MY KID DID NOT BUY IT SINCE SHE EMAILED HER THE NIGHT BEFORE AND IN THE MORNING. ANYWAY , OUR YOUNGEST STRESSED A LITTLE ASKS FOR DINNER VIA VENMO. I PLAY WITH HER AND KEEP WAITING FOR HER TO ASK FOR MONEY. SHE NEVER DOES BUT THE NEXT TEXT SAYS " THANK YOU !! ". I AM CONFUSED MY JOKING HAS FAILED. WHY ?....... BEHIND MY BACK AND RUINING MY PLAYFUL TEXTING WAS WHEELS. SHE SENT HER MONEY WHILE I WAS TEXTING HER.

 DID SOME PROJECTS.

 HEAD TO BED AND ACTUALLY SLEPT GOOD.

  TUESDAY     4 - 13 - 21

 $280 ?.....$280 ?.....SERIOUSLY $280 ?

ALOT GOT DONE TODAY BUT I RAN INTO A SERIOUS PROBLEM AND WE COULD NOT LEAVE IF IT DID NOT GET FIXED. MY OLE FRIEND " THE LEAK ".

 SO , HERE WE GO. I WAS IN " FIX " MODE :

 - START MORNING ON COMPUTER. I SLEPT GOOD AND SAW 20 DEER RIGHT OFF OUR FRONT STEPS. KINDA COOL TO START MORNING LIKE THIS.

 - ORDERED DRIVEWAY LIGHTS VIA AMAZON. I COULD NOT FIND ANY NEW 12 PACK LOW VOLTAGE LIGHTS FOR UNDER $180. AMAZON......$68 WITH FREE DELIVERY.

 - REMOVE 2 ACCESS CRAWL SPACE PANELS AND PULL OUT OUR GORILLA LADDER. THESE THINGS ARE AWESOME.

 - REMOVE HORSE SHOE PIT POLES AND REPLACE THEM WITH ORIGINALS I FOUND ( THAT RENTERS REMOVED ). I ALSO HAD THE PUP OUTSIDE WITH ME AND RAKED THE HORSESHOE PITS TOO.

 - REMOVED STICKS FROM THE BASE OF OUR DECK SPINDLES. I HAVE NO IDEA WHY I DO THIS.

 - INSTALL AN EYE LOOP INTO A 4X4 AWNING POST. I WAS SICK OF WRAPPING THE PUP'S RUNNER AROUND THINGS SO NOW WE JUST CLICK IT AND DONE.

 - RESET FOR THE 5TH TIME THE DRIVEWAY LIGHTS. OUT OF 11 LIGHTS 6 WORK. AGAIN , THE PUP IS WITH ME THE WHOLE TIME OUTSIDE. IT IS AN ABSOLUTE PICTURE PERFECT DAY.

 - OUTSIDE I EXTEND THE GORILLA LADDER TO ABOUT 14 FEET. I MOVE A SECTIONAL AND COFFEE TABLE. I BRING IT INSIDE AND SET IT UP TOWARDS THE CEILING. WE BUILT THIS HOUSE IN THE EARLY 90'S. WE HAVE 8 RECESSED CEILING LIGHTS ON THE 17 FOOT VAULTED HIGH WOOD CEILING. FOR ALL THESE YEARS ONE THING BOTHERED ME....THE TRIM KITS. 5 OF 8 MATCHED BUT THE OTHER 3 DID NOT. THEY WERE THINNER AND DISCOLORED. FOR YEARS THIS BOTHERED ME. I HAD 6 BRAND NEW RECESSED LIGHT TRIM KITS TO REPLACE THE 3. I AM SURE THIS WILL GO FINE.

 - CONTINUED - I REPLACE 3 TRIM KITS BUT DECIDE TO GO ONE BETTER. EACH CEILING HAS 4 LIGHTS ON EACH VAULTED SIDE. THE CEILING IS SHAPED LIKE A UPSIDE DOWN " V ". SO....WHY NOT DO 4 TRIM KITS ON THE ONE SIDE TO ALL MATCH WHILE THE OTHER SIDE HAS ITS 4 TO MATCH. THIS IS EXTRA WORK AND MOVING THE LADDER AROUND FURNITURE BLOWS. BUT I GO FOR IT. NOW EACH TRIM KIT COMES WITH 2 SPRINGS TO ATTACH TO THE INSIDE OF THE LIGHT CANISTER. GUESS WHAT..........I HAD ONLY 1 SPRING LEFT FOR THE LAST TRIM KIT. YOU HAVE TO HAVE 2. I SWEAR TO BABY JESUS.  I GO THROUGH MY TOOL BOXES AND BUCKETS AND FIND ONE LITTLE  SPRING. I FABRICATE IT TO FIT USING A NEEDLE NOSE PLIERS.

 -  CONTINUED - UP THE LADDER I GO. IT IS A TOUGH REACH BUT I TAKE OUT THE BULB AND TRY TO INSTALL THE NEW TRIM KIT.......THE WHOLE LIGHT CANISTER FALLS OUT. I SWEAR TO BABY JESUS !!!  WITH ONE HAND I MANIPULATE THE TRIM AND SPRINGS AND EVENTUALLY LOCK IT IN PLACE. SOMETHING THAT SHOULDA OF TAKEN 15 SECONDS TOOK 15 MINUTES.

 - WHILE ON THE LADDER I DUSTED COB WEBS AND CLEANED AN OILY DRIP ON THE WOODSTOVE PIPING CEILING BOX.

 - ALL FURNITURE GETS PUT BACK AND I PLACE THE LADDER BACK INTO THE CRAWL SPACE AND SECURE THE DOORS.

 - USE WASP SPRAY ALONG THE FRONT EDGE OF OUR AWNING ROOF. I SAW ONE WASP AND TOTALLY WENT RAMBO ON IT. THE SPRAY SHOOTS ABOUT 15 FEET. I USED A WHOLE CAN ON ONE WASP...........AND NEVER HIT HIM.

 - RE-ORGANIZE A MUDROOM CLOSET.

 - AN IMPORTANT PROJECT WAS A BLUE WATER STORAGE TANK IN OUR WATER HEATER CLOSET. THERE HAS BEEN A VERY SLIGHT DROP LEAK FOR YEARS. I THINK ONE DROP PER DAY. I JUST PUT A TOWEL UNDER IT AND IT DID FINE. WELL , THE BLUE TANK WAS FALLING THROUGH THE FLOOR AND TOTALLY TILTING. IT IS ATTACHED BY THE MAIN PLUMBING LINE  INTO OUR WATER HEATER. USING A PRY BAR I LIFTED THE PIPES UP AND SLID A 2X4 UNDERNEATH AND ALSO USED A 17" PIECE OF 2X4 TO WEDGE THE EDGE OF THE TANK AGAINST A WALL. DOING THESE 2 THINGS MADE THE TANK UPRIGHT AGAIN. I WAS VERY PLEASED WITH THE OUTCOME. THIS HAS BEEN ON MY LIST FOR QUITE AWHILE. SO.......WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG ? I BETTER USE A LETTER SEQUENCE TO FINISH THIS STORY :

 A) - LAYING ON MY SIDE I NOTICE A QUICK LEAK COMING FROM THE MAIN PIPE INTO THE SIDE OF THE WATER HEATER. BY MOVING THE PIPES AND UP-RIGHTING THE BLUE STORAGE TANK I MADE MY 1 DROP PER DAY LEAK INTO 1 DROP PER SECOND LEAK. OH......MY.......GOD.

 B) - I REMOVE EVERYTHING FROM THE CLOSET.....AND I MEAN EVERYTHING.

 C) - I DO NOT HAVE MY PLUMBING TOOLS HERE. THE MOST IMPORTANT WOULD BE MY ACETYLENE TANK AND SOLDER. I TEXT A NEIGHBOR AND HE RESPONDS WITH SOME PLUMBING TOOLS BUT THEY WOULD NOT WORK.

 D) - TAKE A RIDE TO LOCAL HARDWARE STORE. THE WORKER TELLS ME FLEX SEAL TAPE WORKS EXCELLENT. I MEAN ON THE COMMERCIAL THEY SHOW GUSHING WATER BEING STOPPED BY WRAPPING THIS TAPE AROUND THE PIPE. THEY EVEN DEMONSTRATE HOW IT WORKS UNDER WATER. I BUY SOME.

 E) - BACK HOME I APPLY THE TAPE. IT LEAKS.

 F) - I APPLY A 2ND TAPE OVER THE FIRST TAPE. IT LEAKS.

 G) - I CALL THE HARDWARE STORE TO TELL THEMFLEX TAPE BLOWS. I ASK IF THEY KNOW A PLUMBER. THE WOMAN SAYS HER SON IS A PLUMBER. HE WILL CALL ME.

 H) - I GOOGLE LOCAL PLUMBERS AND ONE GUY ANSWERS WHILE HE IS IN A CRAWL SPACE. TO ME......THAT IS A GOOD THING. HE TELLS ME HE WILL STOP BY OUR HOUSE NEXT. I CALL THE HARDWARE STORE TO TELL THE WOMAN HER SON DOES NOT NEED TO COME OUT BECAUSE WE GOT SOMEONE ELSE.

 I) - I REMOVE THE FLEX TAPE AND PREP THE AREA FOR THE PLUMBER. HE ARRIVES ABOUT 30 MINUTES LATE BUT HEY.......HE IS HERE ON SHORT NOTICE AND WE HAVE TO LEAVE TOMORROW.

 J) - HE ARRIVES AT 4:50PM AND ACCESSES THE PROBLEM. I WAS HOPING HE COULD JUST HEAT UP THE JOINTS AND RE-SOLDER. HE SAYS , " NOPE ". IN 15 MINUTES HE REPLACES THE WHOLE 90 DEGREE PIPE. I AM TELLING YOU HE IS DONE IN 15 MINUTES.

 K) - WE TALK AND FIND OUT HE IS A FORMER UNION PLUMBER , KNOWS NORTH WILDWOOD , AND LIVES IN ALBRIGHTSVILLE ABOUT 30 MINUTES FROM HERE. I TALK TO HIM SOME MORE OUTSIDE WHILE HE PUTS HIS $1,000 TOOLS AWAY. HE DID SAY , " HAVING THE RIGHT TOOLS HELPS". I RESPOND , " MY BROTHER SAYS THE SAME THING.

 L) - HE RETURNS AND WE TALK MORE WHILE HE HANDS THE BILL TO WHEELS. SHE WRITES HIM A CHECK. HE ROLLS OUT AND I AM HOPING THE BILL IS UNDER $100 FOR HIS 15 MINUTES....HOPING.

 M) - I ASK WHEELS WHAT DID THE BILL COME TOO ? SHE SAYS , " LET ME WAIT UNTIL HE DRIVES AWAY. " THIS IS NOT A GOOD SIGN IT WILL BE UNDER $100. SO I THINK , " OKAY , ALBRIGHTSVILLE IS A 30 MINUTE DRIVE. I WILL ADD ANOTHER $75 AND HOPE IT IS UNDER $175.......NOPE.

 N) - I ASK WHEELS AGAIN THE COST OF THIS PLUMBING JOB AND SAY , " IS IT UNDER $200 ? " WHEELS REPLIES , " NOPE ". SHE HANDS ME THE BILL AND IT CAME TO $280. OH.....MY......GOD. I COULD OF SAVED $280 ( LESS GAS AND TOLLS ) TO DRIVE HOME AND GET MY PLUMBING TOOLS.

 O) - I TRY TO MAKE SENSE OF THIS HIGH BILL AND FIGURED THE SAME DAY EMERGENCY FEE WAS THE CULPRIT....THOUGH HE HAD LABOR AND SUPPLIES AT $245. YEAH RIGHT.......12 INCHES OF COPPER IS LIKE 2 BUCKS. I LIKED THE GUY AND HE DID COME HERE WITHIN 2 HOURS SO I GUESS I AM SEMI-OKAY WITH IT.

 P) - 3 HOURS LATER THE HARDWARE LADY CALLS ME AND SAYS HER SON CAN FIX THE LEAK TOMORROW MORNING. I TELL HER IT WAS FIXED AN HOUR AGO AND I LEFT A MESSAGE WITH YOUR DAUGHTER 2 HOURS AGO.

 - I HANG HOOKS AND SCREWS TO CONSOLIDATE AND ORGANIZE THE HEATER CLOSET BETTER BEFORE PLACING EVERYTHING BACK IN. IT LOOKS A LOT BETTER.

 - I SECURE A VERY BAD STATIONARY SLIDING DOOR ON THE BALCONY DECK. I USE A VACUUM TO SUCK OUT ALL THE OLD WOOD JUST FALLING OUT OF THE BOTTOM OF THE DOOR. IT IS BAD AND CREATING A LEAK BELOW IN A BEDROOM. I CAULKED THE BOTTOM EDGE AND SECURE THE WHITE CLAD METAL BACK ONTO THE DOOR. FOR NOW....IT WILL WORK.

 - I PRICE OUT SLIDING DOORS.....$900 TO $3400. I FOUND ONE ON FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE FOR $50. IT IS 30 YEARS OLD AND I DECIDE ( AFTER TALKING WIT MY BROTHER ) EVEN THOUGH I THINK IT WOULD FIT I AM NOT GETTING INTO IT. THE OWNER RESPONDED QUICKLY TO ALL MY MESSAGES BUT WOULD NOT BUDGE AT ALL ON THE 30 YEAR OLD DOOR AND BEING ON MARKET PLACE FOR 30 WEEKS.

  SOME OTHER LITTLE THINGS WERE DONE BUT NOW WE HEAD OUT TO DINNER AT A VERY GOOD RESTAURANT CALLED ADELINA'S.

 BEFORE LEAVING I WAIT FOR A WOMAN TO PICK-UP THE TABLE AND CHAIRS THAT I JUST GOT FOR FREE YESTERDAY. SHE FUCKING BLOCKS ME AFTER WE MESSAGED BACK AND FORTH 10 TIMES. SHE SAID SHE COME HERE BETWEEN 4-6PM. I WAITED TO 5:55PM. EARLIER I CONTACTED ONE PERSON VERY INTERESTED. HE LIVES IN MOUNTAIN TOP. I TELL HIM IF THIS FALLS THROUGH I WILL TAKE EVERYTHING TO HIM SINCE WE ARE GOING TO MOUNTAINTOP FOR DINNER. HE IS ELATED. I AM SO PISSED THIS LADY BLOCKED ME AND NEVER SAID SHE IS CANCELLING....FUCKING PEOPLE !!!

 WE DELIVER THE TABLE , CHAIRS , AND LEAVES TO A REALLY NICE COUPLE. WE UNLOAD AND THE GUY TIPS US $10 FOR DELIVERING IT. I GIVE IT TO MY ELDEST. WE CHAT A LITTLE ABOUT LOCAL RESTAURANTS AND FIND OUT THEY JUST MOVED HERE IN OCTOBER. THEY MENTION KINGS RESTAURANT WHICH I COULD BE TWISTED ON BUT WHEELS MADE RESERVATIONS FOR ADELINA'S.

 WE DRIVE 5 MINUTES AND ARRIVE FOR DINNER. OUR FAVORITE WAITRESS IS THERE THAT WE HUM SONGS TO AS A JOKE AND SHE GUESSES THE SONG NAME. BUT..........ONE PROBLEM. THEY ARE SHORT STAFFED BIG TIME. SHE EVEN ASKS OUR ELDEST SHE WILL HOUSE HER IF SHE WORKS FOR THEM. THE FOOD WAS VERY GOOD BUT FROM START TO FINISH IT WAS OVER 2 HOURS. PUT IT THIS WAY , WE HAD 3 DRINKS EACH BEFORE WE EVEN GOT A SALAD. WE UNDERSTOOD AND WERE PATIENT BUT IT PUT US IN A BAD MOOD.

 WE ROLL OUT AND STOP AT THE ICE CREAM STORE. OUR ELDEST PUTS OUT HER HAND FOR MONEY AND I SAY , " CAN YOU USE THE TIP MONEY WE GOT FOR DELIVERING THE DINING ROOM SET ? "

 AT HOME THE DOG FLIPS OUT SEEING US. WE SETTLE IN AND WATCH SOME BIG BANG THEORY. IT FEELS LIKE 11PM AND IT IS 9:30PM. I STAY UP ONE MORE HOUR WHILE OUR ELDEST TAKES A JACUZZI AND SHOWERS. I HAD NO DRINKS.

 OH , PHILLIES LOSE A DOUBLE HEADER AND HECTOR NERIS BLOWS A SAVE. GEE.......BIG SURPRISE THERE.

 OFF TO BED AND SLEPT OKAY. I DID WAKE UP SEVERAL TIMES.

  WEDNESDAY      4 - 14 - 21

 IS THIS LUCKY OR UNLUCKY ? AGAIN , MY NEMESIS " THE LEAK " STRIKES AGAIN. YOU KNOW SOME COMIC BOOK WRITER SHOULD START A NEW SUPERHERO LINE AND THE FIRST VILLAIN CAN BE " THE LEAK ". IT CAN BE A BAD GUY WHO JUST MAKES YOUR LIFE MISERABLE.

 UP EARLY AND BEGIN THE DAY WITH A TON OF DEER RIGHT ON OUR FRONT PATH. IT IS PRETTY AWESOME. THE SUN RISES OVER THE TREES IN THE WOODS AND I BEGIN MY COMPUTER STUFF AND WALK THE PUP. IT IS A BEAUTIFUL MORNING AND NO ONE IS AROUND.

  YESTERDAY I FORGOT TO MENTION I WIPED DOWN ALL WINDOW SILS AND BASEBOARD HEATS. WHY I DO THIS I DO NOT KNOW. I GUESS IT IS BECAUSE THE LAST WINDOWS WERE SO CRAPPY I WANT TO KEEP THESE NEW WINDOWS IN GOOD CLEAN SHAPE.

 WE BEGIN PREPPING FOR LOADING THE VAN. BUT I HAVE ONE MORE PROJECT.......A CEILING FAN LIGHT SWITCH IS BROKE.

 I REMOVE THE BULBS , BULB COVERS , AND SWITCH COVER. I UNDO THE WIRING AND REMOVE THE BROKEN FAN SWITCH. I HAVE THESE AT HOME BUT NOT HERE. WHEELS DRIVES TO THE HARDWARE STORE SO I CONTINUE TO DO STUFF. I GIVE HER THE OLD SWITCH TO MATCH A NEW ONE.

 IN THE MUDROOM I STRAIGHTEN UP A BIT AND MOVE MY TOOLS OUTSIDE FOR LOADING. I DECIDE TO MOVE A REFRIGERATOR OUT. I CLEAN BEHIND IT AND REVERSE A CARPET. ANOTHER FRIDGE WAS LEAKING 2 YEARS AGO SO WE REPLACED IT ( FREE ON FB ) BUT IT LEFT A WATER STAIN ON 1/3 OF THE CARPET TILE THAT STICKS OUT AND CAN BE SEEN IN FRONT OF THE FRIDGE. SO.....I REVERSED IT.....DONE.

 WHEELS RETURNS AND THE PART IS WRONG. I CALL THE HARDWARE STORE AND EXPLAIN WHAT I NEED AGAIN. I DRIVE THERE AND FEEL BAD FOR THE 100 YEAR OLD MOM WHO GAVE WHEELS THE WRONG PART. AS I AM LEAVING I HEAR THE DAUGHTER ( PIECE OF ASS ) SAY , " MOM , I TOLD YOU IT HAS WIRES ON IT. "

 I RETURN AND REPLACE THE CEILING FAN SWITCH. I DO A TEST AND PUT EVERYTHING BACK TOGETHER. IT WORKS GOOD BUT I NOTICE ONE OF THE 3 BULBS FLICKERS. I WILL FIX THAT ANOTHER DAY.

 OKAY , I AM READY TO LOAD UP AND GET ON THE ROAD AND THAN I HEAR WHEELS SAY THE MOST HATED WORDS FROM MY NEMESIS VILLAIN ENEMY AGAIN............." THERE IS SOMETHING LEAKING UPSTAIRS. TWO DRIPS JUST FELL ON THE KITCHEN COUNTER. "    OH.......MY.......GOD !!!!

 I RULE OUT THE JACUZZI FOR A LEAK. IT HAS TO BE THE TOILET OR SINK. I NOTICE THE TANK ON THE TOILET IS SLIGHTLY LOOSE. THIS COULD BE IT. IT REALLY CONCERNS ME THE TANK MOUNTED TO THE BASE ROCKS A BIT. I TRY TO TIGHTENED IT AND IT MAKES ME THINK A TANK SEAL WAS NOT INSTALLED WHEN I RE-DID THE PARTS ON THE TOILET SEVERAL MONTHS AGO. AGAIN....THIS WILL BE A PROJECT TO CHECK OUT ANOTHER F'N TIME. THE IMPORTANT THING THERE IS NO LEAK. THIS NARROWS " THE LEAK " DOWN TO THE SINK.

 I LOOK UNDER THE SINK AND IN THE CABINET. THE BASE BOTTOM IS WET. I FOUND THE LEAK. THE CULPRIT IS A LOOSE COLD WATER SUPPLY LINE THAT IS SLIGHTLY SECURED TO THE BOTTOM OF THE FAUCET'S COLD FEED. I DO NOT HAVE MY PLUMBING WRENCH WHICH WOULD BE 100X EASIER TO TIGHTEN THIS NUT. SO I USE AN ADJUSTABLE WRENCH WHILE SIDEWAYS IN THE CABINET.....UPSIDE DOWN. REMEMBER HOW FAT I AM WITH A BAD SHOULDER. IT IS NOT A FUN AREA TO WORK IN. I TRY TO TIGHTEN THE NUT WITH JUST ONE TURN .........ANNNNNNNNNNNNND IT BASICALLY FALLS OFF. WATER COMES SHOOTING OUT AND I CLOSE THE SHUT-OFF.  OH........MY......GOD !!!!

 UNBELIEVABLY I SEARCH MY TOOLS AND BUCKETS OF CRAP AND FIND.................ONE FAUCET SUPPLY LINE. SERIOUSLY JUST ONE. I REPLACE THE OLD LINE AND IT TAKES A WHILE SINCE I CAN ONLY TURN IT 10 CENTIMETERS AT A TIME WITH MY ADJUSTABLE WRENCH. MY PLUMBER'S CHANNEL LOCKS WOULD OF GOT IT DONE YESTERDAY. I TEST IT AND CLEAN UP. THIS LEAK IS SOLVED.

  THIS LOOSE SUPPLY LINE REMINDS ME OF WHEN OUR CONDO HAD THE EXACT SAME PROBLEM. IT WAS DURING THE WINTER TIME SO IT LEAKED FOR 4 MONTHS. WE JUST NEVER THOUGHT OF DRIVING TO THE SEASHORE IN IN THE FREEZING WINTER. IT WAS COSTLY AND WE HAD TO REMODEL THE ENTIRE CONDO ON BOTH FLOORS. IT WAS A NIGHTMARE. NOW HERE , WE DO HAVE RENTERS COMING IN ON FRIDAY BUT THIS LEAK AT THE MOUNTAIN STILL COULD OF CAUSED DAMAGED. IN FACT , IT MUST OF BEEN LEAKING A LONG TIME BECAUSE OUR KITCHEN CEILING IS DISCOLORED AND I HAVE NOTICED WET SMALL TINY WET SPOTS BEFORE. THE CEILINGS IS WOOD SO WE NEVER REALLY TOTALLY NOTICED IT. I JUST THOUGHT IT WAS RENTERS BANGING IN OUR JACUZZI AND SPLASHING WATER ON THE WALLS ALONG WITH THE GIRL'S TITS. THE WHOLE TIME ( YEARS ) IT WAS THIS FAUCET SUPPLY LINE.

 SO AGAIN , WAS THIS LUCKY OR UNLUCKY WE FOUND THIS LEAK 15 MINUTES BEFORE LEAVING ?

 WE BEGIN TO DO A FINAL CLEAN AND I LOOK OUT A WINDOW IN THE BACK YARD.......... MY HEART SINKS. " THE LEAK " HAS RETURNED IN ANOTHER AREA. TWO DAYS AGO I NOTICED A PUDDLE BY ONE HORSESHOE PIT POLE. I THOUGHT RAIN CAUSED IT. WELL , 2 DRY DAYS LATER I SEE THE PUDDLE IS STILL THERE. THE REST OF THE MOUND IS DRY. THIS TELLS ME ONE THING. I HAVE A SMALL LEAK IN OUR DRAINAGE FIELD AGAIN. OH......MY.......GOD.

 I NOW HAVE 2 SERIOUS THINGS I NEED TO INVESTIGATE THE NEXT TIME BACK.

 I AM EXHAUSTED. OUR ELDEST DRIVES US HOME DOING 90MPH. FOR YEARS I TOLD HER TO STAY IN THE RIGHT LANE BECAUSE OF SAFETY AND COPS LOOK FOR SPEEDERS IN THE LEFT LANE FIRST. WHAT DID SHE DO.....DRIVE IN THE LEFT LANE THE WHOLE TIME. WE MADE IT HOME IN 31 MINUTES.

 WE UNLOAD AND SETTLE IN.  IT IS GOOD TO BE HOME BUT I SO RATHER BE AT THE MOUNTAIN HOUSE.

  I PLACE A BEER AND LIQUOR ORDER. IT WAS THE FIRST TIME I ORDERED FOR THE NAIL IN OVER 1 YEAR. IT FELT GOOD AND MAYBE EVEN PROMISING THAT " NORMALCY " MAY RETURN.

 I MADE THE ANNOUNCEMENT THAT THE NAIL WILL START OUT SLOW BY DOING 1 BAND NIGHTS WITH A LIMITED CROWD ( 20 ) , AND A $10 COVER FOR THE BANDS. WITHIN 5 MINUTES OF THE FACEBOOK POST 4 BANDS BOOKED SHOWS. THIS IS A NICE START. I AM HOPING MOST PEOPLE WILL BE VACCINATED WHEN WE START OUT WITH LIVE SHOWS. MY MOTTO.......GO SLOW AT FIRST. THIS IS THE SAME PHILOSOPHY I USE IN THE BEDROOM.

 WHEELS AND I TAKE A RIDE TO PICK UP OUR YOUNGEST. I HAVE A SURPRISE FOR HER......WE TOOK THE PUPPY WITH US. SHE SAT IN THE BACK WITH ME WITH THE WINDOW DOWN. THE DOG WAS IN PURE JOY MODE. IMAGINE THAT , JUST OPENING A WINDOW AND SNIFFING THE WORLD IS YOUR BEST DAY EVER. I TEXT OUR YOUNGEST THAT WE ARE HERE. SHE COMES OUTSIDE WHILE I WALKED THE PUP ABOUT A HALF BLOCK AWAY. SHE SAYS TO WHEELS , " THAT IS STRANGE. DAD WAS TEXTING ME BUT YOU ARE HERE BY YOURSELF ? " MEANWHILE I AM HEADING TOWARDS OUR YOUNGEST AT LIGHT SPEED ( A LITTLE FASTER THAN MY 92 YEAR OLD DAD WITH 2 CANES ) AND SHE NEVER SEES ME UNTIL THE PUPPY IS RIGHT BEHIND HER. I YELL OUT, " HA !! HA !!  WE SURPRISED YOU WITH MAZEY COMING !!!! " SHE GIGGLES AND HUGS THE DOG.

 I DRIVE HOME AND OUR YOUNGEST ENJOYS THE PUP IN THE BACK SEAT. WE TALK ,  JOKE AROUND , AND CATCH UP. IT WAS WONDERFUL.

 WE STOP AND GET A WHITE PIZZA WITH SPINACH FROM ZESTO'S. WE ALL EAT IN THE KITCHEN , TALK , LISTEN TO MUSIC , AND WATCH THE PHILLIES LOSE AGAIN.

 OUR YOUNGEST INFORMS US SHE CAN GET SHOWTIME SINCE SHE FORMED AN ACCOUNT ON SPOTIFY. WE INSTALL SHOWTIME TO OUR ROKU. NOW WE CAN FINISH SHAMELESS. AT FIRST WE DID A 7 DAY FREE TRIAL BUT I CANCELLED THAT AND WE NOW HAVE FULL SHOWTIME.....NICE.

 ELDEST HAS A FRIEND/BARTENDER VISIT. I ADORE THIS GIRL.

 ELDEST CLEANS HER ROOM. A PROJECT THAT NEEDED TO BE DONE MONTHS AGO. I EQUATE HER ROOM TO CHERNOBYL.....LESS THE RADIATION.......MAYBE.

 WE WATCH SOME CARPOOL KARAOKE. SETH  MACFARLANE AND ARIANA GRANDE WAS VERY GOOD AND SO WAS QUEEN LATIFAH AND JADA PINKET SMITH. THEY WERE MY FAVORITE SO FAR.

 76ERS WITH A HUGE WIN OVER THE BROOKLYN NETS.

 UNION WITH A NICE 4 - 0 WIN.

 OFF TO BED. I SLEPT BAD TO DECENT. I HAD SOME SERIOUS CRAZY DREAMS. ONE DREAM WAS WATCHING OLD LADIES SNIP YOUNG GIRLS BIKINI STRINGS ON THEIR TOPS. THEY WERE SUPER ANGRY ON HOW SKIMPY THE BIKINI TOPS ARE NOWADAYS. I WAS AT A HOTEL'S BALCONY OVER LOOKING A BEACH. THESE OLD LADIES WERE QUITE BITTER.

  THURSDAY       4 - 15 - 21

 ONE DOWN AND ONE TO GO.

 IT WAS KINDA COOL WHEELS GOT TO SCHEDULE ALL OUR SHOTS AT THE SAME TIME. I ASSUME EACH PERSON GETS NERVOUS ABOUT GETTING A NEEDLE AND I DID TOO. BUT LET ME PUT YOUR MIND AT EASE. IT WAS QUICK , ORDERLY , AND SURPRISINGLY 99% PAINLESS. ALL 4 OF US DROVE TO ASTON AND GOT OUR 1ST ROUND OF VACCINATIONS. THE MEDICS AND VOLUNTEERS WHO RAN IT WERE PROFESSIONAL AND POLITE. THEY OFFERED WATER AND MANDARINS WHILE YOU WAIT THE 15 MINUTES AFTER THE SHOT. AGAIN.......ALMOST PAINLESS WHICH I THINK IS THE FIRST WORRY. NOW....LET'S WAIT 24 HOURS AND SEE HOW OUR BODIES REACT.

 WE HAVE BREAKFAST AT MINELLA'S DINER. IT WAS GOOD AND I PLAYED WITH THE WAITRESS AS ALWAYS. YEARS AGO ON ONE BREAKFAST EXPERIENCE I ASKED FOR 2 ENGLISH MUFFINS WITH MY OMELET. THE WAITRESS BROUGHT ME OUT 2 HALVES OF ONE MUFFIN. FROM THIS DAY I ALWAYS ASK , " CAN I HAVE 2 WHOLE ENGLISH MUFFINS OR 4 HALVES ". TODAY'S WAITRESS GIGGLED AT ME AND SAID , " WHAT ELSE WHAT I BRING YOU ? ". IT WAS THAN I EXPLAINED THE STORY.

 I ALSO PLAYED WITH THE REGISTER GIRL. SHE HAD A TON OF BOOZE BEHIND HER SO AS I WAS PAYING I ASKED FOR A SHOT OF FIREBALL. SHE GIGGLED ( SINCE IT WAS 10AM ) AND SAID I HAVE TO ORDER THROUGH A WAITRESS. I REPLIED , " I'M JUST KIDDING , IT IS TOO EARLY THOUGH THEY SAY IT IS 5PM SOMEWHERE IN THE WORLD. " SHE GIGGLED AGAIN AND REPLIED , " I'VE SEEN PEOPLE ORDER ALCOHOL EARLIER THAN THIS. "

 WE ROLL HOME AND SETTLE IN. WE WATCH AT LEAST 4 EPISODES OF AMERICAN PICKERS. IT ALWAYS REMINDS ME OF MY FATHER-IN-LAW. I ALSO PLAYED POOL WITH MY YOUNGEST , LISTENED TO MUSIC , AND WE CHASED THE PUP. I ASKED MY YOUNGEST AT LEAST 10 TIMES TO STAY HOME LONGER AND NOT GO BACK TO SCHOOL TODAY.

 ALL DAY THE GIRLS HAD A SENSE OF HUMOR. ONE QUICK STORY - I AM TRYING TO CONVINCE MY YOUNGEST TO STAY HOME OVER THE WEEKEND AND NOT GO BACK TODAY. I SAY , " HOW ABOUT WE TAKE YOU OUT TO DINNER AS AN INCENTIVE TO STAY HOME ? YOU CAN PICK THE RESTAURANT. " SHE WRYLY SMILES AND SAYS , " OK , HOW ABOUT WE GO TO MOUSTAKI ? " ALL OF US START LAUGHING. THE REASON.....THIS RESTAURANT IS ABOUT 200 FEET FROM HER COLLEGE.

 MY MOTHER-IN-LAW IS HAVING A BIRTHDAY AND A LUNCHEON SOON. FAMILY HAS ASKED EACH DAUGHTER , SON , AND FRIENDS TO MAKE A QUICK 1 MINUTE VIDEO WISHING HER HAPPY BIRTHDAY. THIS WILL BE SHOWN AT THE LUNCHEON. OF COURSE I HAD TO PLAY. I FOUND AN OLD LARGE ORANGE JUMPSUIT STYLE HUNTING OUTFIT. THE GIRLS AND I MADE THE VIDEO. IT WAS FUN AND FUNNY.

 BY 6PM WE ROLL OUR KID BACK TO COLLEGE. WE WERE GOING TO STOP AT NICK'S ROAST BEEF BUT WE FELT IT WAS TOO SMALL SO WE STOPPED AT HIBACHI IN SPRINGFIELD INSTEAD. THE SHOW COOK PERFORMED AT ONE TABLE AWAY , WE TRIED SAKI & CHAMBORD , SUSHI , AND THE NORMAL HIBACHI DINNER OF CHICKEN , STEAK , SHRIMP , OR SCALLOPS. THE FOOD WAS VERY GOOD , THE ASIAN WAITRESS WAS SUPER POLITE AND AN ABSOLUTE SMOKE SHOW.  BUT..........A LITTLE LONGER TO RECEIVE THE MEAL ( ONLY ONE COOK AND ONE SUPER HOT ASIAN WAITRESS ) AND THE PRICE WAS VERY HIGH. I WOULD STILL GO AGAIN FOR THE FOOD AND STARE AT THE MODEL WAITRESS IN SPANDEX. HOW CAN PEOPLE BE ANGRY AT ASIAN PEOPLE ???

 THE RIDE TO COLLEGE AND WE LISTEN TO MUSIC. WE DROP OUR KID OFF AND IT IS SAD. WE WAIT UNTIL SHE GETS UP TO HER ROOM AND WAVES GOODBYE FROM HER WINDOW. A FUN THING HAPPEN AS A YOUNG BLONDE GIRL WAS WALKING AN OLD ENGLISH SHEEPDOG. REMEMBER THE DISNEY MOVIE THE SHAGGY DOG ? THIS DOG WAS SO FUN AND PLAYFUL WE TOOK PICTURES AS I PETTED HIM.

 WE ROLL HOME AND MAKE GOOD TIME. WE DROP OUR ELDEST OFF AT A FRIEND'S HOUSE.

 WE SETTLE IN AND I HAVE NO BOOZE WHICH IS RARE FOR ME BUT I WAS SO STUFFED. I ONLY HAD 2 MEALS TODAY BUT BOTH WERE FILLING.

 FLYERS WITH A HUGE BOUNCE BACK WIN IN A..............SHOOT-OUT ?  YEP , THE GAME TIED 1 - 1 IN REGULATION , THAN WENT THROUGH AN OVERTIME , AND THAN THE FLYERS WON IN A SHOOT-OUT 2 -1. YOU HAVE TO WATCH GIROUX SICK ASS MOVE ON THE GOALIE TO SCORE. IT WAS BORDERLINE ILLEGAL.

 WE WATCH AN EPISODE OF SHAMELESS SINCE WE HAVE SHOWTIME NOW. I WILL SAY IT WAS HALF GOOD AND HALF ANNOYING. IT IS THEIR FINAL SEASON AND SHOWTIME HAS FINALLY RELEASED ALL EPISODES.

 SINCE I AM HOME I LIKE TO GET SOME PROJECTS DONE ALONG WITH NAIL STUFF. BUT..........AT ANY MINUTE I SO GO BACK TO THE MOUNTAIN HOUSE. I STILL HAVE 2 ISSUES THAT SHOULD BE FIXED SOON. I COULD HEAD EAST TOO.

 OFF TO BED WHERE I SLEPT GOOD UNTIL 5AM WHEN MY PHONE WENT OFF......OUR ELDEST LOCKED HERSELF OUT SO I LET HER IN.

 I GO TO OUR GARDEN AND NOTICE SOMETHING VERY PECULIAR. OUR LETTUCE IS SHAPED LIKE A VERY LARGE ROLL OF CASH. I PLUCK ONE OFF AND UNROLL IT. I AM SUPER SURPRISED IT IS ALL 5 DOLLAR BILLS. I TAKE A FIVE OUT FROM MY WALLET AND IT MATCHES PERFECTLY. I GO TO THE NEXT LETTUCE PLANT AND PLUCK THAT. THIS ONE IS ALL 10 DOLLAR BILLS. AGAIN IT MATCHES PERFECTLY TO A REAL $10 BILL. I AM THINKING GOD IS INTERVENING WITH ME TO HELP WITH PAYING BILLS............WITH BILLS. I GO TO WHEELS AND SHOW HER. SHE IS ASTONISHED TOO. THE OTHER PLANTS ARE NOT READY TO BE PICKED YET. I LOOK CLOSELY AND SAY TO WHEELS , " OH MY GOD I THINK THIS ONE IS GROWING 100 DOLLAR BILLS. ..............DREAM ENDS.

  (BECAUSE MY CELL PHONE GOES OFF AT 5AM TO LET MY ELDEST IN FROM THE PATIO )

 IN DISNEYLAND I SEE PEOPLE WALKING BELOW ME. I RECOGNIZE ONE GUY D.P.  HE LOOKS UP AT ME WITH A BIG SMILE. HE AND HIS GROUP RUN UP TO ME AND WE SIT ON A WALL TOGETHER. WE TALK OLD TIMES OF THE NAIL , GOLF , AND SOFTBALL. ONE ADORABLE GIRL NAMED MINDY IS THE EX-WIFE OF MY BROTHER'S FRIEND M.K.  SHE IS SITTING ON MY LEFT AND BEGINS RUBBING MY BACK AND SEMI-TALKS SEDUCTIVELY TO ME. IT MAKES ME FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE SO I SAY MY GOOD BYES. I WALK THROUGH A PLAY HOUSE AND 2 AFRICAN AMERICAN ELECTRICIANS ARE RUNNING ELECTRICAL LINES FOR A MICKEY MOUSE DISPLAY. I OFFER HELP AND EVEN GIVE THEM A GOOD IDEA TO RUN A LINE MUCH EASIER............DREAM ENDS.

 FRIDAY        4 - 16 - 21

  AFTER 24+ HOURS ALL FOUR OF US , FOR THE MOST PART , HAVE NO PAIN FROM THE FIRST VACCINATION. WHEELS AND I DID TAKE SOME ASPIRIN BUT THAT IS IT. I LIKE TO REITERATE DO NOT STRESS YOURSELF OVER GETTING A SHOT......IT IS PAINLESS AND QUICK.

 CONSOLIDATED 5 PAGES TO A SINGLE PAGE FOR MY WORK/PROJECT LIST. IT SEEMS THINGS GET DONE A LITTLE QUICKER WHEN I WRITE THEM DOWN.

  PICKED UP A LIQUOR ORDER AND HAD A BEER DELIVERY. IT ALMOST FELT NORMAL AS I STOCKED FOR OVER AN HOUR. SLOWLY I WILL BUILD UP OUR INVENTORY.

 THE NAIL WILL BE OPEN FROM 4PM - 10PM ( MAYBE LATER ) SATURDAY NIGHT.

 BACK HOME I CHILL. WE WATCH AN EPISODE OF SHAMELESS. IT WAS MUCH BETTER THAN THE LAST ONE.

 THREE OF US HEAD TO A FAMILY MEMBER'S HOUSE. IT WAS FUN....PIZZA , POOL , PHILLIES , SAM ADAMS , MUSIC , WINE , AND SOME STORY TELLING. GOOD WIN FOR THE PHILS.

 GOOD WIN FOR THE 76ERS TOO.

 BACK HOME WE CHILL A LITTLE. OUR ELDEST HAS FRIENDS OVER FOR A FIRE PIT. ALWAYS GOOD TO SEE THE ONE FRIEND/BARTENDER. LOL....MAZE ATTACKED HER WHEN SHE CAME IN WITH MCDONALDS FOOD.

 SATURDAY     4 - 17 - 21

 START OUT WITH PHILLIES BLOW....FLYERS BLOW.

 OKAY , LET'S START THE DAY.

 A THIEF STEALS A CAR IN WILKES BARRE AND DRIVES IT INTO OUR LAKE.....NICE. I POSTED PICTURES ON FACEBOOK. ALL KINDS OF FIREMEN , POLICE , AND DIVERS. THEY WEREN'T SURE IF A BODY WAS IN THE CAR. THANKFULLY THERE WAS NOT.

 I HEAD TO THE NAIL TO PREP FOR A PRIVATE PARTY. I WEED WHACK THE FRONT AND BACK ALONG WITH LEAF BLOWING.

 FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE STRIKES AGAIN - NOW GET THIS , 120 BRAND NEW CARPET TILES STILL IN THE BOX. WE DRIVE TO A BEAUTIFUL AREA WITH LARGE STONE HOMES. I FIND OUT THEY DID NOT LIKE THE 4 DIFFERENT SHADES OF BROWN SO INSTEAD OF THEM GOING THROUGH THE HASSLE OF SHIPPING THEM BACK TO SOUTH CAROLINA THEY GAVE THEM AWAY FOR FREE. THESE ARE IN PERFECT CONDITION. NOW , WHERE TO PUT THEM ?

 WHEELS WALKS WITH A FRIEND AND I GO BACK TO THE NAIL TO PREP MORE.

 I HAVE BEEN WATCHING THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER. IT IS PRETTY GOOD.

 CHILL WITH SOME REGULARS , BARTENDER , AND TALK TO A SOUNDMAN AND RADIO ENGINEER. I ENJOYED ALL OF IT. MAN , IT HAS BEEN TOO LONG.

 I AM NOT TOO SURE ABOUT EXPERTS SAYING DREAMS ARE ONLY SECONDS LONG AND YOU DO NOT SEE IN COLOR.

 BACK HOME AND LEFTOVERS FOR DINNER.

  WE WALK AROUND THE HOUSE TO DETERMINE WHERE WE LIKE SHUDDERS. WE ALSO SAW WHERE OUR NEIGHBOR PLANTED FLOWERS FOR US. WE HAD THE PUP WITH US TOO.

 OH , AFTER WALKING AROUND THE HOUSE I DECIDE TO LET THE PUP OFF-LEASH TO PLAY WITH HER AND CHASE A TENNIS BALL. SHE TOTALLY TAKES OFF. WE FREAK OUT AS SHE RUNS ACROSS THE STREET TO A NEIGHBOR'S HOUSE. THEY GRAB HER BY THE HARNESS WITH US CLOSE BEHIND. I AGGRESSIVELY ESCORT THE PUP BACK TO THE HOUSE. MAN DID I HIT THAT DOG'S ASS. I F'N HATE WHEN A DOG JUST BURSTS OFF WITHOUT LISTENING.

 SETTLE IN AND WATCH AN EPISODE OF SHAMELESS. IT WAS OKAY TO SEMI-GOOD.

 WHAT IS REALLY GOOD IS THE FINAL SEASON OF THE BIG BANG THEORY. WE WATCH 4 EPISODES. I REALLY LIKE WATCHING ON HBO MAX...NO COMMERCIALS. THEY AVERAGE ABOUT 17 MINUTES LONG.

 WHEELS CAVES IN AND LET'S THE PUP OFF THE HOOK.

 I CHECK IN WITH THE BARTENDER SEVERAL TIMES. LOOKS LIKE SHE HAD A GOOD NIGHT.

 THE PUP JUMPS IN MY BED AT 3:30AM. 

 OH , IT'S 4:30AM AND I AM UP. I AM FINISHED ON THE COMPUTER AND IT IS NOW 6:15AM. I GUESS I WILL TRY TO GO BACK TO SLEEP.

  SUNDAY      4 - 18 - 21

 IT WAS CONCENTRATE ON THE OUTSIDE DAY. I THINK I WALKED 15 MILES WHILE HOLDING OR PUSHING SOME KIND OF TOOL.

 - WEED WHACKED THE ENTIRE PROPERTY.

 - EDGED 90% OF THE PROPERTY. THIS IS HARD AND THE EDGER NEEDS TO BE PUSHED DOWN AND HARD TO MAKE A CLEAN CUT. THIS IS NOT FUN ESPECIALLY WHEN THE EDGER BLEW A FUSE.

 - USED LAWN MOWER TO CUT ANYWHERE RIDING MOWER COULD NOT GET TO YESTERDAY. I WAS QUITE PLEASED BOTH RIDING AND PUSH MOWER STARTED. I ALSO DID THE RENTAL PROPERTY.

 - WE PICKED OUT 4 SHUDDERS OUT OF 16 TO CLEAN AND BE PAINTED.

 - SAWED TABLE LEGS AND DRESSER TO BE TRASHED OR USED FOR A FIRE PIT.

 - ORGANIZED THE GARAGE A LITTLE BIT.

 - LOADED TRAILER UP WITH TRASH.

 - UNLOADED CARPET TILE AND MOVED ALL TOOLS TO ANOTHER VEHICLE.

 WE TAKE A RIDE TO A YARD SALE. WE MAY RETURN.....WHEN IT IS AT THE CURB.

 TALKED TO NEIGHBOR AND THANKED HER FOR PLANTING FLOWERS N OUR GARDEN.

 WATCH PHILLIES WIN A SOLID 2 - 0 GAME BEHIND PERFECT PITCHING BY AARON NOLA.

 I FINISHED THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLIDER. I DID NOT REALIZE IT WAS ONLY 5 EPISODES. IT WAS GOOD.

 A NICE DINNER OF LEFTOVERS.

 WE WATCHED 2 EPISODES OF SHAMELESS. WE HAVE ONE MORE FOR THE SEASON FINALE. MAN DID THE WRITERS GO DOWN SADNESS LANE HERE.

 AMERICAN IDOL OR FLYERS SUPER EXCITING JUST 5 MINUTES OVERTIME ?  I SHOULD OF PICKED AMERICAN IDOL. FLYERS LOSE IN OVERTIME IN THE 2ND MINUTE ON A SHITTY GOAL ........OUR OWN PLAYER TIPPED IT IN.

 TRYING TO GET A SNOW BLOWER TECH VIA PHONE IS LIKE TRYING TO FIND WALDO. WORST..........REPLIER TO MESSAGES EVER.

 UNION WITH A SOLID TIE 0 - 0. YES....DON'T GIGGLE AT THE SCORE. I THOUGHT THEY HAD MORE CHANCES TO WIN THE GAME.

 OFF TO BED. I WATCHED SOME TV BUT CRASHED QUICKLY...AFTER MY DAUGHTER AND WHEELS CAME INTO MY ROOM.

 DAMN IT !! FORGOT A VERY COOL DREAM.

  MONDAY      4 - 19 - 21

 YEP.......THAT'S MY LUCK IN A NUT SHELL.

 TAKE A RIDE TO THE YARD SALE WHEELS AND I WENT TO YESTERDAY. ON THE CURB WAS SOME STUFF WE SAW FOR SALE THAT IS NOW FREE. I FACETIME WHEELS AND I GOT DISHES , BOWLS , CHINA , A CANE , A SHELF , PING PONG PADDLES , AND MORE. MOST OF IT WILL GO TO OUR KID'S NEW APARTMENT.

 STOP BY MY BROTHER'S HOUSE TO DROP OFF A CASSEROLE DISH AND PICK UP PAINT.

 STOP AT THE NAIL TO DROP OFF A TON OF STUFF , PAINT A WALL , CAULK A PEDESTAL SINK  , CHANGE THE MARQUEE SIGN , AND MORE. I ALSO WALKED OVER TO D.M.I. HOME SUPPLY. MAN THEY WERE BUSY.

 I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR PS4 CONTROLLERS FOR OUR YOUNGEST. THESE ARE EXPENSIVE AND ABOUT $40 EACH. I FIND ONE SQUIRRELLY GUY AND HE SAYS $25 FOR FOUR OF THEM. I TELL HIM I JUST NEED 2 SO HE SAYS $10. FIVE MINUTES LATER HE SAYS I CAN HAVE THEM ALL FOR FREE. I DRIVE TO CENTER CITY AND PICK UP MY YOUNGEST. I MESSAGE THE NUT BAG GUY , " DO NOT PUT THEM OUTSIDE UNTIL 2PM. " HE RESPONDS AT 2:01PM , " THEY ARE OUTSIDE ALREADY " AND HE LABELS THE PRODUCT ON FACEBOOK MARKETPLACE AS " SOLD ". I AM SO SUSPICIOUS OF THIS.

 WE ARRIVE AT 2:13PM. HE SAID TO LOOK FOR AN OLD NAVY BAG. WE CAN NOT FIND IT. WE MESSAGE BACK AND FORTH AND HE SAYS IT WAS TAKEN WITH THE WORDS " NO HARM NO FOUL " AND " SORRY BRUH ". THE THINGS I MADE MY YOUNGEST TEXT TO THIS DIRT BAG I WILL NOT WRITE HERE. I DID USE THE WORDS " BRUH " , " IDIOT , " WASTE OF TIME " , " GITBAG " , AND " UNBELIEVABLE THAT SOME RANDOM PERSON JUST HAPPENED TO PICK UP AN OLD NAVY BAG SITTING IT FRONT OF A DOOR WITHIN 12 MINUTES OF PUTTING IT OUTSIDE. OH MY GOD IT'S A MIRACLE !!! THE NAVY BAG JUST VANISHED LIKE A FART IN THE WIND !!! " ( I JUST HAD TO DO A MOVIE QUOTE )

 SO MY KID IS CALM AS A CUCUMBER SINCE I WASTED 30 MINUTES OF MY TIME. SHE SAYS , " WELL , YOU GOT TO SEE ME ( SHE SMILES ) AND WE CAN GO TO WAWA NOW FOR COFFEE. "  THE KID ALWAYS SEES THE GOOD.

 I PARK AT 19TH STREET ABOUT 1 BLOCK AWAY FROM MARKET. I AM OFF TO THE SIDE AND MY KID GETS OUT AND RUNS INTO WAWA FOR COFFEE. AN INTERNATIONAL MAN SWINGS HIS TRUCK SIDEWAYS AND BLOCKS ALL OF 19TH STREET BECAUSE HE IS PICKING UP HIS HOTDOG TRAILER ON THE SIDEWALK. NOW , HIM AND I ARE BLOCKING THE STREET. OH MY GOD THE HORNS WERE BLOWING. I SWING MY CAR TO THE RIGHT SIDE AND USE HIS TRUCK AS MY BLOCKER. MY KID RETURNS AND SAYS , " WHY ARE YOU PARKED ON THE RIGHT SIDE NOW ? "

 I DRIVE HOME JUST THANKFUL TO SPEND SOME TIME WITH MY YOUNGEST AND THINKING ABOUT HOW MUCH OF A JERK-OFF THAT GUY WAS IN BEING DECEITFUL ABOUT WHERE THE CONTROLLERS WERE. I KNEW HE SOLD THEM TO SOMEONE ELSE.

 BACK HOME WHEELS WALKS WITH A FRIEND WHILE I PAINT 4 SHUDDERS.

 I RE-SET 2 ROUTERS.

 OH , AT DINNER TIME WHEELS SAYS IT IS RAINING. WELP , THAT SHOULD MAKE MY NEWLY PAINTED SHUDDERS LOOK LIKE SHIT.

 I SET-UP A NICE FIRE PIT WITH 16 CANDLES AROUND THE ACTUAL FIRE PIT. I POSTED IT ON FACEBOOK. IT WAS NICE. A NEIGHBOR STOPPED OVER AND SOME OF OUR ELDEST FRIENDS. I WATCH THE PHILLIES AND 76ERS LOSE ON MY PHONE WHILE CHILLING BY THE FIRE PIT.

 BACK INSIDE WE WATCH THE FINALE OF SHAMELESS. OVERALL I WAS DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS WHOLE FINAL SEASON. I THINK " FRANK " DID AN EXCELLENT JOB ACTING LIKE HE HAD DEMENTIA. ALL THE OTHER STUFF WAS BASICALLY IRRITATING , ANNOYING , AND COULD OF BEEN WRITTEN WAY BETTER. BASICALLY , IT WAS EXTREMELY SAD AND DEPRESSING FOR A GREAT COMEDIC SHOW.

  TUESDAY       4 - 20 - 21

 A FAT GUY SHOULD NOT BE UP ON A 30' LADDER. HOW IS JOEL EMBIID 7'2" AND 220 POUNDS WHILE I AM 6'1" AND 280. HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE HE IS ONLY 220 ?

 MY ELDEST AND HER FRIENDS DEPLETED MY " STARTER " WOOD LAST NIGHT. THEY DID PUT EVERYTHING AWAY WHICH WAS NICE. WITH THE PUP OUTSIDE I COLLECTED ANY REMAINING STICKS FOR BURNING , RAKED OUT THE AREA , CLEANED THE FIRE PIT , EMPTY ASHES INTO THE RAKED AREA AND RAKE AGAIN , AND FINALLY USED THE HOSE TO WATER IT DOWN. THE ASHES WERE STILL HOT FROM A FIRE 10 HOURS AGO.

 PAINTED SHUDDERS A 3RD TIME BECAUSE THEY GOT RAINED ON. I LET DRY AND HUNG 2 SETS ON THE FRONT AND BACK WINDOWS OF THE HOUSE. MY ELDEST HELPED A LITTLE.

 TO THE VILLANOVA STUDENT SUNNING ON HER ROOF.......I THANK YOU. OH , LOVE THE INK DOWN YOUR LEFT RIB CAGE AREA. GOOD GOD WHAT A SMOKE SHOW.

 FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE AGAIN :

 PICKED UP A TABLE AND CHAIRS. THEY ARE NOT THE RIGHT COLOR AGAIN BUT CLOSE. THE GUY WAS COOL AND AN EAGLE'S FAN. I FEEL BAD THROWING OUT SO MANY TABLES AND CHAIRS.

 ALSO PICKED UP AN ORECK VACUUM. ON AMAZON AND EBAY THEY PRICE AT $130. I TOOK IT TO THE NAIL AND CLEARED A CLOG IN LESS THAN 3 MINUTES. IT WORKS PERFECT. IT SMELLS NICE BECAUSE IT WAS USED IN A LADY'S BOUTIQUE. I ALSO RE-CAULKED AND PAINTED THE PEDESTAL SINK AREA IN THE MEN'S BATHROOM.

 ABSOLUTELY KNEW THE PHILLIES WOULD LOSE WHEN THEY SAID SOME STATISTICS , " WHEELER WITH A 4-0 LEAD HAS A 97% CHANCE OF WINNING. PHILS LOSE 10 - 7.....ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTED.

 THE BIG NEWS OF THE COUNTRY AND WORLD IS THE JURORS DID IT RIGHT WITH VOTING. IT ONLY TOOK 10 HOURS TO CONVICT DEREK CHAUVIN OF THE MURDER OF GEORGE FLOYD. WAS IT ME OR DOES CHAUVIN JUST LOOK LIKE A TOTAL ASSHOLE ?

 FIXED A BATHROOM OVER THE TOILET SHELVING UNIT'S DOOR. 

 UNLOADED THE VAN. MORE STUFF PILING UP IN THE KITCHEN.

 BOOKED SOME RENTALS WHICH IS ALWAYS NICE. I THINK I NEED TO HEAD NORTH OR EAST AGAIN.

 SETTLE IN AND WATCH SOME TV. I HAD ONE DRINK.

  WEDNESDAY     4 - 21 - 21

 " SORRY SIR , I ABSOLUTELY DISAGREE WITH YOU ".  

 YOU WANT A DAY..........I'LL GIVE YOU ONE. I SWEAR I COULD HAVE A 24 HOUR REALITY TV SHOW.

 I GET INTO " WEED " MODE. FOR 2 HOURS I WEED OUR GARDENS. I AM LIKE A MACHINE WHEN IT COMES TO WEEDING. I ALSO SAVED AN OLD CARPET TO PLACE IN ONE GARDEN AS A BARRIER FOR WEEDS. OH , THE ONLY PROBLEM IS 10 HOURS LATER I ASKED MYSELF , " WHY THE HELL DOES MY HANDS , ARMS , AND BODY HURT ? "

  IT REALLY SEEMS SOME PEOPLE GET PISSED OFF AT THE LITTLIEST FUCKING THINGS. IMAGINE THAT ? GETTING SO ANGRY DURING THIS TIME OF COVID , UNREST , MASS SHOOTINGS , AND MORE.

 HERE'S THE STORY :

 - I AM WEEDING ALONG MY FRONT STREET GARDENS. A LARGE FED-EX TRUCK PULLS UP AND STOPS TO DELIVER A LARGE PACKAGE. THE GUY USES A HAND TRUCK TO MAKE THE DELIVERY. A SMALL BLACK CAR PULLS UP AND CAN NOT GET BY THE BIG TRUCK. IN LESS THAN 3 SECONDS HE BEEPS HIS HORN LIKE AN ASSHOLE THAN GETS OUT OF HIS CAR AND APPROACHES THE FED-EX DRIVER.  HE HOLDS A MASK OVER HIS FACE AND TELLS THE DRIVER , " YOU CAN NOT BLOCK THE WHOLE STREET. OTHER PEOPLE HAVE DELIVERIES TOO......LIKE ME. THIS IS NOT RIGHT !! "

 CUE BIG DADDY'S INVOLVEMENT :

 THE GUY WALKS BACK TO HIS CAR AND SAYS TO ME , " CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS GUY ? "

 I RESPOND , " I ABSOLUTELY DISAGREE WITH YOU. "

 HE STOPS WALKING AND REPLIES , " THE GUY IS BLOCKING THE STREET. IT'S NOT RIGHT. "

 IT IS NOW TIME FOR MY RANT ON ANGRY FUCKING PEOPLE AND REPLY TO HIM , " ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME ? THE AVERAGE TIME FOR A FED-EX OR AMAZON DELIVERY IS NO LONGER THAN 60 GOD DAMN SECONDS. YOU HAVE THE OPTION OF BACKING UP INTO MY DRIVEWAY AND TURNING AROUND OR JUST WAIT 60 SECONDS. IN THIS HORRIBLE PANDEMIC TIME WITH PEOPLE OUT OF JOBS , FAMILIES NOT SEEING EACH OTHER , THESE TYPE OF DELIVERIES AT AN ALL TIME HIGH , AND THE SHITTIEST YEAR EVER...........THIS IS WHAT GETS YOU FUCKING ANGRY ???? TO WHERE YOU HONK YOUR HORN LIKE AN ASSHOLE AND TELL-OFF A DELIVERY GUY JUST DOING HIS JOB. WHERE THE HELL IS HE GOING TO PARK THIS HUGE TRUCK ?     NOW LOOK....HE IS LEAVING AND YOU CAN BE ON YOUR WAY TO MAKE YOUR " DELIVERY "( USE MY HANDS LIKE QUOTATION MARKS ).  HOLY SHIT WHAT A WORLD WE LIVE IN. " ( I STARE AT HIM LIKE A PISSED OFF GRANDPA ABE SIMPSON )

 TO MY TOTAL SURPRISE HE APOLOGIZES TO ME AND GOES ON HIS WAY.

 IRONICALLY WHILE WEEDING I FIND 2 PACKAGES IN MY BUSHES THAT WERE PROBABLY THERE FOR OVER 6 MONTHS. THEY WERE COMPLETELY DISCOLORED AND MANGLED. WHEELS WALKED THEM OVER TO A PROPERTY BEHIND OUR HOUSE.

 I HAD THE PUP OUTSIDE WITH ME THE WHOLE TIME. IT REALLY WAS A PERFECT MORNING TO WEED. THE NEXT STEP IS GETTING FREE MULCH FROM OUR TOWNSHIP OR I FIND WOOD CHIPS AGAIN ON FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE.

 SPEAKING OF FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE - LAST WINTER MY ELDEST AND SOME FRIENDS HAD NO SLEDS. THEY USED OUR BLUE PLASTIC SWIMMING POOL , A TRASH CAN LID , AND A PIECE OF SHEET METAL BENT INTO THE SHAPE OF THE LETTER " J ".  SO , FOR FREE , I PICKED UP 2 " BODY GLOVE " PLASTIC SLEDS. MY DAUGHTER WAS OUTSIDE WHEN I GOT HOME AND I TEXTED HER , " SEE WHAT IS IN BACK SEAT OF THE CAR ". SHE TEXTED BACK , " OOOOOOOOO "

 STOPPED AT MY PARENTS FOR LUNCH AGAIN. HOLY SHIT THERE IS CONSTRUCTION ON EVERY STREET. ANYWAY , I PROMISED HIM LIGHT BULBS FOR HIS KITCHEN LIGHT WHICH SOME FIXTURES ARE HANGING BY ITS WIRES. YESTERDAY HE GAVE ME A BOX OF 2 BULBS FOR $7.49 TO INSTALL. I TOLD HIM , " NEVER BUY BULBS AGAIN." TODAY I BROUGHT THEM 4 OF THE EXACT SAME BULBS FOR FREE. I OFFERED TO TAKE THE WHOLE KITCHEN LIGHT DOWN AND FIX IT. I SAID IT TAKE AN HOUR. MY DAD SAID , " LETS EAT LUNCH AND WATCH THE PHILLIES."

 IT GETS DARK OUT AND I ROLL TO THE NAIL TO USE A TON OF EASY-OFF ON OUR CUTTING BOARDS AND HOLDERS FOR THE FRYER. I AM DEEP SOAKING THEM TOO. MAN THAT STUFF HAS A STRONG GAGGING ODOR. I HEAR RAIN AND THUNDER.

 I DECIDE TO ROLL HOME IN THE RAIN BUT HALF WAY THERE IT STOPS AND THE SUN COMES OUT. IT DID GET PRETTY COLD LATER THOUGH.

 PHILLIES BLOW LEAD AGAIN. LUCKILY THEY CAME BACK AND WON. I KNOW IT IS EARLY BUT IF THEY LOST THIS GAME THE SEASON WOULD BE LOST TOO......IN MY OPINION.

 76ERS BLOW. A RADIO SPORTS HOST TOTALLY JINXED THEM SAYING THEY WILL WIN 3 OUT OF THESE 4 GAMES AND THAN NO ONE CAN CATCH THEM FOR 1ST PLACE. I SAY THEY WILL NOW DROP TO 4TH PLACE OR WORSE.........POSSIBLY NOT EVEN MAKING THE PLAYOFFS.

 ITS WEDNESDAY !!! THIS MEANS WE ALL FACETIME TOGETHER. I LOVE DOING THIS. I ALWAYS COMPLAIN THAT WHEELS AND MY ELDEST SHAKE THEIR PHONES THE WHOLE DAMN TIME WHILE FACETIMING. IT IS ALWAYS FUN THOUGH.

 MY ELDEST BEST FRIEND / BARTENDER STOPS BY. SHE SITS AND TALKS WITH US. SHE IS ONE OF THE HARDEST WORKING YOUNG ADULTS I KNOW......COLLEGE , 3 JOBS , INTERNSHIPS , AND MORE. SOME OF HER FAMILY REALLY GET ON HER ABOUT OBLIGATIONS AND STUDYING. SHE WAS TELLING WHEELS AND I THIS WHEN I STOPPED HER AND SAID , " M........I WANT TO TELL YOU RIGHT NOW THAT NANCY AND I ARE EXTREMELY PROUD OF YOU. YOU ARE THE HARDEST WORKING COLLEGE STUDENT WE KNOW AND WE LOVE YOU. SOMETIMES PEOPLE THINK THIS BUT NEVER SAY IT. SO I AM SAYING IT NOW, " SHE STARTED CRYING.

 ELDEST TAKES RIDE TO NAIL TO PICK UP BEER AND BOOZE WHICH I FORGOT TO BRING HOME.

 I LOAD UP THE VAN FOR OUR ELDEST. SHE RETURNS AND HEADS NORTH. I AM JEALOUS FOR IT IS SNOWING THERE. WELL....NOT TOO JEALOUS OF THE SNOW.

 I WATCH ANOTHER EPISODE OF THE NEW SEASON FEAR THE WALKING DEAD. BOTH ARE VERY GOOD.

 WE ALSO WATCHED DEADLIEST CATCH. I WAS KINDA ANNOYED THAT 8 CAPTAINS AGREED TO UNITE AND CRAB TOGETHER AS A TEAM TO SAVE THE FISHERY BUSINESS. TWO CAPTAINS BACK STABBED THE OTHERS. IT WAS GREAT SEEING ONE RETIRED CAPTAIN COME BACK THOUGH.

 OUR ELDEST ARRIVES AT THE MOUNTAIN HOUSE AND WE ALL FACETIME AGAIN. SHE UPDATES US ON THE CONDITION OF OUR HOME AND WE GET TO TALK AND SEE OUR YOUNGEST AGAIN TOO. THE FACETIMING THING IS SO DAMN COOL. SHE SHOWED US SNOW ON THE FRONT DECK.

 OUR ELDEST ALSO TELLS US SHE WANT TO DRIVE TO WALMART AT 10PM TO GET SOME THINGS. I TIED TO CONVINCE HER NOT TOO.

 WE SETTLE IN AGAIN AND WATCH SOME EPISODES OF THE BIG BANG THEORY'S LAST SEASON. THIS SHOW REALLY HAD EXCELLENT WRITING.

 I HEAD TO BED ACHING FROM WEEDING EARLIER. BY 11PMISH I WAS SLEEPING.

THIS IS NOT A DREAM AND REALLY HAPPENED LAST NIGHT :

 SO YOU THINK MY DAY ( AND NIGHT ) IS OVER RIGHT ? ......NOPE.

 AT 3AM BOTH THE PUP AND I SIT UP INSTANTLY AS WE HEAR A LOUD UPSETTING GASP. AT FIRST I THOUGHT IT WAS OUR ELDEST BUT QUICKLY SURMISED IT CAN'T BE HER BECAUSE SHE IS IN THE POCONOS. THIS MEANS IT HAD TO BE WHEELS. I GET UP AND GO TO HER BEDROOM. WHEELS IS HUFFING AIR AND GROANING. I ASK HER WHAT IS GOING ON ? APPARENTLY SHE WOKE UP AT THE FOOT OF HER BED ON THE CARPET. SHE TRIED TO GET UP , FAINTED , AND SLAMMED HER SHOULDER , FACE , AND NOSE ON A DRESSER. SHE CAN NOT GET UP SO I HELP HER TO THE BATHROOM. SHE SAYS SHE HAD HOT FLASHES.

 WHILE SHE IS IN THE BATHROOM I CLEAN OUT 20+ BLOOD DROPLETS IN THE CARPET ALONG WITH BLOOD ON THE TILE FLOOR AND DOOR JAMB TO THE BATHROOM. SHE HAD BLOOD ON HER SO SHE STEPPED IN THE SHOWER FOR A LITTLE BIT. I GOT HER NEW CLOTHES AND HELPED HER BACK INTO BED. I SUGGESTED A " BOXER'S BLOCK " FOR HER NOSE WHICH WAS STILL BLEEDING A BIT. I SAT WITH HER FOR ABOUT 10 MINUTES MORE TO MAKE SURE SHE WAS OKAY TO GO BACK TO SLEEP. MAZE STAYED WITH HER TOO. YEP.....THIS WAS OUR NIGHT.

 THURSDAY      4 - 22 - 21

 IF MY BODY WAS HURTING FROM WEEDING YESTERDAY THAN LET'S JUST ADD TO IT TODAY.

 TRIED USING A SCANNER FOR PICTURES. MY BROTHER-IN-LAW GAVE IT TO US 5 YEARS AGO AND WE NEVER TOUCHED IT. I GOT IT TO TURN ON AND THAT IS AS FAR AS I GOT.

 FUNNY.......THIS PICTURE SCANNER WAS SITTING ON TOP OF SOMETHING THE SAME COLOR. FOR 5 YEARS I ACTUALLY THOUGHT IT WAS PART OF THE SCANNER. IT WAS NOT. I LIFTED IT UP AND FOUND AN EPSON PRINTER / COPIER UNDERNEATH. I ASKED MY ELDEST AND SHE SAID , " OH YEAH , THAT'S A PRINTER I USED IN COLLEGE. "

 FLYERS WITH A GOOD COMEBACK WIN AND HELD THE LEAD. 76ERS.....NOT SO GOOD.

 SO , WE HAVE 120 CARPET TILES. THEY ARE IN EXCELLENT SHAPE AND ARE 4 DIFFERENT SHADES OF BROWN. EACH TILE HAS A SKU NUMBER. OH MY GOD WHY DID I START THIS PROJECT ?

     HERE WE GO : ( SPENT ABOUT 6 HOURS )

 - I DECIDE TO PLACE THESE " NEW " CARPET TILES OVER THE EXISTING TILES IN OUR BASEMENT. I THOUGHT ABOUT REPLACING THEM BUT DECIDED TO JUST COVER OVER THE ORIGINALS. THIS IS 100X EASIER AND COULD HELP DOWN THE ROAD IF OUR BASEMENT EVER GETS WET AGAIN.

 - PUT ON OUR IPOD SPEAKER FOR SONGS ON AND START MOVING FURNITURE TO ONE SIDE OF THE ROOM. THE FIRST SONG IS A RAP SONG WITH MORE CURSING THAN BLAZING SADDLES MOVIE. GUESS OUR KIDS USED IT LAST.

 - FROM THE KITCHEN I THROW DOWN THE STEPS ALL 120 CARPET TILES. NO WAY IN HELL I WAS CARRY THEM DOWN.

 - COVER THE POOL TABLE AND ORGANIZE THE 4 DIFFERENT BROWN COLOR TILES BY THEIR SKU NUMBERS. I USED THE LAST 2 DIGITS 34 , 35 , 36 , AND 37. I DID NOT WANT TO JUST RANDOMLY PLACE THE CARPET TILES DOWN BUT RAN A SEQUENCE EACH ROW I LAID. YEP....THIS MADE IT 3X LONGER BUT I WANTED SOME SORT OF PATTERN. THE CARPET TILES ALSO HAD " ARROWS " ON THE BACK TO RUN ALL OF THEM IN THE SAME DIRECTION. ABOUT A THIRD OF THE TILES HAD DOUBLE SIDED TAPE TO HELP ADHERE THEM TOGETHER ONCE LAID ON THE FLOOR.

 - SO I HAVE TO HAVE A.D.D. , A.D.H. , A.S.S. , OR SOMETHING BECAUSE LAYING THE CARPET TILES ONE ROW AT A TIME WHILE FOLLOWING A PATTERN AND THE ARROWS ON THE BACK CONFUSED ME SEVERAL TIMES. I ALSO KEPT FORGETTING THE 2 DIGIT NUMBERS TO FOLLOW FOR THE NEXT TILE. WORST......MEMORY......EVER.

 -  I DRIVE TO THE NAIL TO PICK UP MY POOL TABLE JACK AND SOME PLASTIC CUPS FOR MY ELDEST AND HER POCONO PARTY. I BROUGHT THE PUP WITH ME.

 - BACK HOME OUR ELDEST FRIEND / BARTENDER STOPS BY TO PICK UP MORE PARTY SUPPLIES FOR THE POCONO GET TOGETHER. I FEEL BAD FOR HER BECAUSE SHE IS DRIVING 3 FRIENDS. SHE TOLD THEM TO BE READY BETWEEN 12 NOON AND 2PM. THEY LEFT AT 8PM. TO ME , THAT IS SO NOT RIGHT.

 - BACK DOWN THE BASEMENT. I LAID ALL THE FULL TILES I COULD AND NOW CONCENTRATED ON CUTTING PIECES IN AND LIFTING THE SLATE POOL TABLE BY MYSELF. THE JACK DID WORK EXCELLENT ONCE I FIGURED IT OUT.

 - IT IS GOING TO BE CLOSE.....REAL CLOSE. IT LOOKS LIKE 120 TILES WILL NOT BE ENOUGH TO DO THE ENTIRE MAIN AREA OF OUR BASEMENT. I HAVE SOME OPTIONS BUT ALL OF THESE WILL STILL NOT FINISH THE PROJECT 100%. THEY ARE 3 THINGS I CAN DO TO HELP FILL IN.

  1 - I TOOK SOME FULL TILES FROM UNDER THE POOL TABLE.

  2 - I BROUGHT 5 OR 6 TILES TO THE NAIL. I WILL BRING THEM BACK HOME.

  3 - I CONTACTED THE SELLER AND MAYBE THEY JUST HAPPEN TO HAVE SOME MORE OF THESE TILES SOMEWHERE.

 - I SPEND TIME ON MY KNEES MEASURING AND CUTTING IN CARPET TILES ALONG THE EDGES OF THE ROOM. WHEN I SAY I USED ALMOST EVERY BIT OF THE OFF-CUTS THAT WOULD BE AN UNDERSTATEMENT.

 SO I HAVE ABOUT 90% OF THE BASEMENT DONE AND IT LOOKS 10X BETTER.

  LEFTOVER DINNER OF RAVIOLIS , MANNIGUTS , MEATBALLS , AND BREAD THAT HAD JUST A LITTLE MOLD. WHEELS TOLD ME A LITTLE MOLD IS GOOD FOR YOU. I ALSO HAD A SMALL GLASS OF RED WINE.

 WE WATCH SOME TV. MORE BIG BANG THEORY AND THE CONNERS. BOTH HAVE EXCELLENT WRITING.  LATER WHEELS WATCH GREY'S ASS ANATOMY WHILE I WENT TO MY ROOM TO WATCH THE 76ERS AND FLYERS WHILE PLAYING POKER.

 I GOT A LITTLE ISSUE WITH GREY'S ASS. THE MAIN CHARACTER HAS BEEN IN A COMA FOR WHAT SEEMS LIKE A YEAR. SIX WEEKS AGO THE SHOW RUNS TEASER COMMERCIALS SAYING " YOU HAVE WAITED LONG ENOUGH .............."AND IT SHOWS THE MAIN CHARACTER OPENING HER EYES. THIS WAS 6 WEEKS AGO. TONIGHT I AM WATCHING AND SHE IS STILL IN A COMA.  FAKE NEWS !!!   GO TRUMP !!

 SPEAKING OF TRUMP. DOES ANYONE MISS HIS DAILY NEWS COVERAGE ?  I KINDA DO.

 WELL , IT SEEMS LIKE EVERYONE MADE IT TO THE POCONO HOME. I ASSUME THE DRINKS WILL TASTE VERY GOOD.

 OFF TO BED AND I TELL WHEELS WE SHOULD COME UP WITH SOME KINDA OF SIGNAL IF SHE HAS AN EPISODE LIKE LAST NIGHT. SHE SEEMS TO BE RECOVERING BUT STILL HURTING FROM THE FALL. I SUGGESTED A COWBELL TO RING TO GET ME AWAKE AND COME TO HER..........OR A CELL PHONE........OR THE SMELL OF PIZZA.

 SATURDAY - 4PM THE BAND RUDE BOY WILL BE PERFORMING AT THE NAIL ALONG WITH LIVE STREAMING  WE ARE SLOWLY RE-OPENING WITH A VERY LIMITED CROWD. THE BIG THING I LOOK FORWARD TO IS MY YOUNGEST BARTENDING FOR THE FIRST TIME.

 FRIDAY     4 - 23 - 21

 NOW THAT IS A FINALE OF A TV SERIES !!

 EARLY MORNING I RE-PROGRAM OUR GARAGE DOOR OPENERS AND KEYPAD PANEL. I ALSO PLAY WITH THE PUP AND PICK UP POOP.......NICE.

 START DAY TAKING A RIDE TO THE NAIL TO PICK UP CARPET TILES AND FOR THE 2ND TIME SCRUB OUR 3 KITCHEN SINKS. IN-BETWEEN I SPRAY WITH OVEN CLEANER. I WILL HARD SCRUB AGAIN A 3RD TIME TOMORROW.

 TAKE A RIDE TO KING OF PRUSSIA TO PICK UP A 4' SHOP LIGHT. YES......FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE STRUCK AGAIN.

 ELDEST SEEMS TO BE HAVING FUN IN THE POCONOS. SHE TEXTED ME THEY CAUGHT LARGE PICKERELS ( A FORM OF BARRACUDA FOR A LAKE )

 PHILLIES BLOW. " CLOSER " NERIS F'S UP A SAVE OPPORTUNITY......AGAIN.

JOHNSON & JOHNSON TO BRING BACK THE SINGLE VACCINATION SHOT. THE VOTE WAS 10 - 4. I WOULD OF VOTED " YES " TOO. IT IS A NECESSITY AND THE ODDS FACTORED IN. I THINK 15 PEOPLE GOT SICK WITH 2 DEATHS WHICH IS HORRIBLE BUT OVER 15 MILLION SHOTS WERE GIVEN. SO , PERCENTAGES ARE NEARLY NONE WHEN RECEIVING THE SHOT.

 WHEELS AND I TALKED TO OUR BANK REP. THEY ARE OFFERING MORE PANDEMIC ASSISTANCE FOR 3 MORE MONTHS. THIS DEFINITELY HELPS.

 FLYERS BLOW.

 TO THE BASEMENT...........I USE ALL CARPET TILES AND I MEAN ALLLLLLLLLLL. I HAVE 3 SMALL TINY SCRAPS LEFT. I STILL CAME UP SHORT BUT I HAVE TO ADMIT IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE ESPECIALLY WHEN WALKING ON IT IN BARE FEET OR SOCKS. I PLACED ALL FURNITURE BACK , STORED BINS , CLEANED UP , AND DID A FULL VACUUM. I AM PRETTY HAPPY HOW THIS TURNED OUT. NOW......I ASKED THE SELLER IF SHE COULD FIND MORE TILES AT HER HOME OR I MAY CONTACT THE COMPANY WHO SELLS THEM OR GO TO FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE. HMMMMM. I WONDER WHICH ONE ?

 SATURDAY 4PM THE LIVE BAND RUDE BOY WILL PERFORM TO A LIMITED AUDIENCE AND OUR YOUNGEST BARTENDING FOR THE FIRST TIME.

 WHEELS HAS A BLACK EYE , SPRAINED SHOULDER , AND ACHING BACK FROM HER LITTLE ESCAPADE 2 NIGHTS AGO.

 ORDERED PIZZA AND A SALAD FROM DOMINOES. IT WAS NOT GOOD TO THE SIGHT AT ALL. LETTUCE AND PIZZA LOOKED WILTED. BUT....TASTE WAS OKAY. I WANTED PIZZA HUT BUT THERE ARE NONE WITHIN 20 MILES.

 WE CHILL AND THE PUP JUMPS UP ON THE BAY WINDOW SILL. SHE SEES A HUSKY ACROSS THE STREET PLAYING WIT  A LITTLE GIRL. OH MY GOD SHE FREAKED FOR 15 MINUTES.......POOR PUP WANTED TO PLAY.

 WE FINISH THE FINAL SEASON OF THE BIG BANG THEORY. THE LAST EPISODE WAS EXCELLENT. IF IT MAKES THE LIVE AUDIENCE CHEER AND THE VIEWER CRY..............THE WRITERS DID AN EXCELLENT JOB.

 WE ALSO WATCHED THE CONNERS. AGAIN , SOLID WRITING.

 OFF TO BED AND I DREAMT ABOUT AN OLD COLLEGE SOCCER COACH. IT IS AMAZING HOW VIVID MEMORIES CAN BE. I EVEN SAW THE BLUE & WHITE COLORS OF OUR UNIFORMS. MAN , I WAS A PIECE OF ASS BACK THEM.

  SATURDAY     4 - 24 - 21

 NOW THIS WAS A FULL DAY. BUT WHAT WOKE ME UP AT 4:30AM ?

 I WORK IN THE GARAGE ORGANIZING , CONSOLIDATING , AND LOADING UP TRAILER FOR TRASH. I ALSO PLAY WITH THE PUP ON AND OFF FOR ABOUT 45 MINUTES ALONG WITH PICKING UP HER " PRESENTS " FROM HER ASS.

 FIX A BROKEN HANDLE ON OUR BBQ. i WILL RE-DO THIS. IT WAS A QUICKIE FIX.

 WHEELS AND I TAKE A RIDE TO PICK UP OUR YOUNGEST IN CENTER CITY. WE STOP AND WALK THROUGH THE ITALIAN MARKET ON 9TH STREET. IT WAS ENTERTAINING AS MORE GUYS TALKED WITH A SOUTH PHILLY ITALIAN DIALECT WITH A FLARE OF PROFANITY. MY YOUNGEST ENJOYED IT. WE GOT ITALIAN SPECIAL HOAGIES , CHICKEN CUTLET WITH BROCCOLI RABE & SHARP CHEESE , AND OF COURSE.........CANNOLIS. WE SAT IN A CONVERTED PARKING LOT WITH A FAIR AMOUNT OF TABLES AND UMBRELLAS. IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL DAY AND PEOPLE WERE ALL OVER THE PLACE.

 OH , WE TAKE 76 HIGHWAY INTO THE CITY. I VOW NEVER TO TAKE THIS ROAD EVER. WELP , LITTLE DID I KNOW THEY SHUT DOWN 76 RIGHT AT OUR TURN OF 676. TRAFFIC WAS BACKED UP FOR MILES ........ON A FUCKING SATURDAY MORNING AT 11AM. WORSE.......ROAD ....EVER !!!

 WE ROLL OUT AND DRIVE THROUGH CHINATOWN. WE ALSO STOP AT HER APARTMENT TO TAKE MEASUREMENTS OF THE FRONT DOOR. HMMMMMMM ......WHY WOULD WE NEED TO MEASURE THE FRONT DOOR ?

 BACK HOME I DROP THEM OFF AND HEAD TO THE NAIL FOR A LIVE STREAM SHOW. WHILE I WAIT FOR THE BAND I SCRUB OUR TRIPLE SINK FOR THE 3RD TIME. I PUT EVERYTHING BACK TOGETHER.

 MY YOUNGEST SHOWS UP TO BARTEND AND HELP WITH THE LIVE STREAM. IT WAS AWESOME WORKING WITH HER. AS THE BAND LOADED-IN AND SET-UP WE WIPED DOWN EVERYTHING IN THE BAR....AND I MEAN EVERYTHING.

 I ALSO NOTICED OUR JEEP HAD 1000'S OF WHITE SPECS ON THE WINDSHIELD AND SIDE WINDOWS. IT LOOKED LIKE SPRAY PAINT MISTED ALL THE GLASS AND MORE. SO.......WITH A BRILLO PAD I SCRUBBED THE GLASS SECTIONS ONLY. MY ARM WAS HURTING AFTER 30 MINUTES. I THAN USED WINDEX. THIS WAS NOT FUN BUT I GOT ABOUT 95% OFF THE GLASS. IT WAS BAD.

 THE BAND RUDE BOY DID A GREAT SET AND SOME PEOPLE STOPPED IN. THE DRUMMER WAS ABSOLUTELY FUN WITH HIS ANTICS , BODY LANGUAGE , FACIAL EXPRESSIONS , AND DEEP BURSTING VOICE. THIS WAS ONE OF THE QUICKEST AND FUNNEST SHOWS. THEY LOADED IN AND OUT QUICKLY AND THE 4PM SHOW WAS DONE BY 4:50PM. WE WERE HOME BY 5:20. IT IS SO NICE HAVING 2 PEOPLE WORKING.

 BACK HOME WE FIRE UP THE BBQ GRILL. FAMILY CAME OVER FOR AN 84TH BIRTHDAY GET TOGETHER. I BBQ'ED KOBY BURGERS. GOOD GOD HAVE YOU EVER HAD A KOBY BURGER ? I BELIEVE A WHOLE COW ONLY MAKES 6 BURGERS. WHEELS HAD A SPREAD FOR 20 PEOPLE. FOOD AND CONVERSATION WAS FUN.

 A COOL THING TO DO FOR A PERSON'S BIRTHDAY. I FORGET THE WEBSITE BUT THEY ORGANIZE PICTURES AND VIDEOS FOR YOU. A FAMILY MEMBER CONTACTED A SHIT LOAD OF FRIENDS AND FAMILY. WE ALL MADE VIDEO PRESENTATIONS WISHING THE BIRTHDAY PERSON HAPPY BIRTHDAY. OF COURSE OURS WAS FUNNY AND STUPID. I DRESSED IN MY OLD LARGE AND VERY ORANGE JUMP SUIT STYLE HUNTING OUTFIT. ALL THE GIRLS WISHED HELLO WHILE VIDEOING. I ENTERED THE HOUSE AND PRETENDED I HAVE BEEN HUNTING ALL DAY TO SUPPLY FOOD FOR THE FAMILY ( WHEELS SIDE OF THE FAMILY ARE BIG HUNTERS ). WE DID THE VIDEO IN ONE TAKE.

 THE KIDS CONNECTED A COMPUTER TO OUR BIG SCREEN TV AND ALL OF US WATCHED THE FAMILY VIDEO. IT WAS REALLY FUN SEEING SO MUCH FAMILY MAKE PRESENTAIONS.

 DESERT , PHILLIES GAME , AND A LITTLE BOOZE ( BUT NOT MUCH ). I WAS HAPPY MY NIECE DROVE IN FROM COLLEGE. I WAS ALSO EXTREMELY HAPPY OUR ELDEST FACETIMED TWICE TO SAY HELLO , WISH A HAPPY BIRTHDAY , AND WATCH THE FAMILY VIDEO REMOTELY WITH US.

 EVERYONE ROLLS OUT AND OUR YOUNGEST WANTS TO HEAD BACK TO COLLEGE TO MEET UP WITH FRIENDS. I WAS PRETTY TRIED AROUND 9:30PM BUT I REALLY ENJOY TRAVELING AND SPENDING TIME WITH HER. WE EVEN BROUGHT THE PUP SO SHE COULD HAVE MORE SNUGGLE TIME WITH MAZE.

 WE ARRIVE AT HER COLLEGE AND 3 FRIENDS MEET US OUTSIDE FOR ONE THING.....TO SAY HELLO TO THE PUP. OUR DOG'S TAIL DID NOT STOP WAGGING FOR 20 MINUTES. I TOOK A PICTURE AND SENT IT TO FAMILY.

 ROLL HOME TIRED AND THE GOOD THING AT NIGHT IS ALL GREEN LIGHTS. OH , AND I SO AVOIDED 76 HIGHWAY ( WORST EVER ). I LISTENED TO THE PHILLIES WHICH WAS NICE. THE ANNOUNCERS MADE IT FEEL LIKE THEY WERE RIGHT IN MY CAR KEEPING ME COMPANY.

 BACK HOME I HAVE A COUPLE OF LIBATIONS WITH WHEELS AND WE WATCH THE CONNERS AND THE END OF THE PHILLIES GAME. IT WAS A NICE WIN THOUGH THEY BLEW THE LEAD WITH OUR BEST PITCHER AARON NOLA.

 OFF TO BED....I WAS PRETTY TIRED AND PRETTY FAT.

 I MEET OUR BARTENDER C.S. AT OUR MOUNTAIN HOUSE. SHE BROUGHT 8 FRIENDS. WE STARTED DRINKING PRETTY HARD MID TO LATE AFTERNOON. WE WERE FEELING VERY GOOD BY DINNER TIME. ALL THE FRIENDS DECIDE TO GO OUT TO DINNER WHILE C.S. AND I WANT TO STAY AT THE HOUSE. WE CONTINUE TO DRINK. SHE CHANGES INTO SWEAT PANTS WHILE I COME DOWN FROM MY BEDROOM. AT THE TOP OF THE STEPS WE BOTH MEET AT THE SAME TIME AND BUMP INTO EACH OTHER GENTLY. SHE GRABS MY HIP AND PULLS ME IN. SHE IS KINDA GRINDING ON ME AND NUZZLING MY NECK WITH HER MOUTH AND WHISPERS , " ARE YOU SURE ? ". SHE CONTINUES TO MASSAGE MY SIDES AND CHEST AND AGAIN WHISPERS IN MY EAR , " ARE YOU SURE ? ".  BOTH OF US START A KINDA SLOW DANCE MOVE ON EACH OTHER. SHE BEGINS TO UNBUCKLE MY PANTS WITH MY HELP AND SLOWLY STARTS MOVING HER HEAD DOWN FROM MY NECK TO MY CHEST TO MY WASTE LINE. SHE RELEASES MY " THING " AND PAUSES. SHE MOVES HER WHOLE BODY BACKWARDS AND STARES AT " IT " AND SOFTLY SAYS , " DAMMMMMMMMNNNNNNNNNN ". I WAS THINKING , " I GUESS SIZE DOES MATTER." JUST AS SHE IS ABOUT TO GRAB " IT " ALL THE FRIENDS COME IN THE BACK DOOR BY THE BOTTOM OF THE STEPS. BOTH OF US QUICKLY ORGANIZE OURSELVES AND WALK DOWN THE STAIRCASE TO GREET THEM.

 CONTINUED - A LITTLE LATER SOME FRIENDS LEAVE ALONG WITH C.S.  I WATCH HER DRIVE AWAY AND I AM BUMMING. I SEE HER CAR TURN AROUND WHILE I AM ON THE BACK STEPS. SHE DRIVES UP , GETS OUT OF HER CAR AND SAYS , " I FORGOT MY POCKET BOOK. " SHE GOES IN THE KITCHEN WHILE I WAITED ON THE OUTSIDE STEPS. SHE COMES OUTSIDE AND CASUALLY BRUSHES HER BODY SLOWLY AGAINST MINE AND SLYLY SAYS , " HOPE TO SEE YA NEXT TIME TO FINISH WHAT WE STARTED ". SHE GETS IN HER CAR AND LEAVES.

 CONTINUED - 4 FRIENDS OFFER TO HELP CLEAN THE HOUSE BEFORE LEAVING. I ORGANIZE THEM BY ASSIGNING DIFFERENT CHORES. I AM THE LAST TO LEAVE AND I AM THINKING WHAT THE HELL JUST HAPPENED WITH C.S. ? I AM SO TURNED ON BUT ALSO SO CONFUSED. I CLOSE THE DOOR AND LOCK IT..........dream ends.

 ( YEP , THAT IS WHAT WOKE ME UP AT 3:30AM AND AGAIN NO SEX IN MY DAMN DREAM........BLOW.  IT'S 6:30AM AND I MUST TRY TO FALL ASLEEP ONE MORE TIME )

 SUNDAY     4 - 25 - 21

 FRIGGIN' LOVE MY TRAILER....BEST THING I EVER GOT. INTERESTING DAY FOR ME BEING FAT.

  FACEBOOK MARKETPLACE.......AAAAAAGAIN. - WHEELS AND I TAKE AN 8 MINUTE RIDE TO MEET A VERY NICE LADY CLEARING OUT HER MOTHER'S HOUSE. I BROUGHT THE TRAILER WITH ME. WE PICKED UP A WONDERFUL LONG COUCH FOR OUR YOUNGEST AND HER APARTMENT. WE MADE SURE IT FIT THROUGH THEIR NEW APARTMENT'S FRONT DOOR BY TAKING A MEASURING TAPE. IT IS IN VERY GOOD SHAPE. THE WOMAN ALSO GAVE WHEELS SOME SUPER COOL DESIGNED GLASSWARE. WE LOADED IT UP AND BROUGHT EVERYTHING HOME.

 I PLAY WITH THE PUP AND PICK UP HER " GIFTS " IN THE BACK YARD.

 SINCE I HAD THE TRAILER HOOKED UP I DECIDED TO CONTACT A PERSON GIVING AWAY WOOD CHIPS. I WAS NOT SURE I WANTED TO OPEN THIS CAN OF WORMS SO EARLY IN THE MULCHING SEASON BUT I WENT FOR IT. THE GUY AND WIFE WERE VERY NICE AND ONLY A 4 MINUTE DRIVE  VIA BACK STREETS WHICH I REALLY LIKE SINCE MY " TRAILER " LICENSE PLATE WAS MADE WITH A BROTHER P-TOUCH.

 I ARRIVE AT A BIG VILLANOVA HOUSE AND BACK IN THE DRIVEWAY. THERE IS A HUGE MOUND OF WOOD CHIPS. I LOAD UP AND TALK TO THE GUY BRIEFLY. DRIVE HOME AND BEGIN THE TASK OF THROWING WOOD CHIPS INTO OUR GARDENS. WHEELS HELPS BY REMOVING ALL SEA SHELLS. I KEEP THE PUP OUTSIDE WITH ME.

 WHEELS GOES FOR A WALK AND GETS HER BACK WORKED ON BY HER CHIROPRACTOR BROTHER.

 I DECIDE TO GO BACK FOR ANOTHER TRAILER LOAD OF WOOD CHIPS. I USE MY CELL PHONE TO ACCESS MY SPOTIFY ACCOUNT. A NICE LITTLE THING POPPED UP......MY YOUNGEST SONG PLAYLIST. WE ALL MADE THIS LIST AND CONTINUE ADDING TO IT. OVER 25 HOURS OF HAND PICKED / PERSONALLY SELECTED / EXCELLENT SONGS. I LOADED WOOD CHIPS TO LOW RIDER , BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY , ELECTRIC AVENUE , AND THAT'S AMORE. IT WAS PERFECT.

 BACK HOME I CONTINUE TO THROW WOOD CHIPS INTO THE GARDENS. I KNOW ALL OUR GARDENS TAKES 4 1/2 TRAILER LOADS.  THE PUP AND I FINISH 2 LOADS. WHEELS RETURNS AND SWEEPS THE DRIVEWAY. I THINK MORE WOOD CHIPS MISSED THE GARDENS FROM ME THROWING THEM WITH A SHOVEL.

 A BROTHER JUST HAPPENED TO TEXT ME ABOUT OUR FREE MULCH. LAST YEAR I DELIVERED A TRAILER LOAD TO HIS HOUSE. I TOLD HIM I AM DOING WOOD CHIPS AGAIN. HE SAID HE WAIT FOR THE MULCH.

 INSIDE I COLLAPSE INTO THE COUCH AND WATCH BRYCE HARPER HIT TWO HOME RUNS......NICE.....PHILLIES ARE UP 2 - 0. I ALMOST FALL ASLEEP.

 TRAILER FOR THE 3RD TIME TODAY. WHEELS AND I HEAD TO MY PARENTS HOUSE FOR DINNER WITH MY BROTHER AND HIS WIFE. I CALL AHEAD AND MY BROTHER ROLLS OUT THE SNOW BLOWER ( THAT I GOT FOR FREE ) TO THE END OF THE DRIVEWAY. HE HELPS ME LOAD IT ON THE TRAILER. I WILL HOPEFULLY HAVE 2 SNOW BLOWERS WORKED ON AT OUR HOUSE SOON. I DID TALK TO THE MECHANIC AND HE WAS SUFFERING AFFECTS FROM A 2ND COVID SHOT.

 OH , I DID TALK TO MY COMPUTER TECH AND HE HAS BEEN SICK FOR A WEEK.

 ANYWAY , BACK TO DINNER AT MY PARENTS. THIS WAS AN OUTSTANDING MEAL AND I THOUGHT MY BROTHER'S HEAD WOULD POP FROM EXCITEMENT OF THE EXCELLENT PREPARED FOOD. TWO STYLES OF HOME MADE " MANIGUTS " , MEATBALLS , SAUSEEGE , STRING BEANS IN OIL , LAMB & EGGS , GARLIC BREAD , ICE-CREAM & JELL-O MIX DESERT , CHOCOLATE CAKE/PUDDING WITH WHIPPED CREAM , COKE , WATER , AND RED WINE. I COULD NOT GET MORE FATTER THAN WHAT I AM RIGHT NOW. THE TOP OF MY SHOULDERS TO BELOW MY ASS IS NOW ALL THE SAME WIDTH.

 WONDERFUL CONVERSATION AND JOKING OF COURSE. IT WAS NICE GETTING MY 92 YEAR OLD DAD TO REMINISCE AND TELL STORIES. WE EVEN LOOKED UP FAMILY WE HAVE NOT SEEN IN DECADES ON FACEBOOK THAT MY PARENTS KNEW.....AND WE FOUND SOME !!!  IT WAS REALLY NICE TO CHILL WITH EVERYONE.

 OH , PHILLIES BLEW THE 2 - 0 LEAD AND SLIGHTLY LOST BY TEN RUNS 12 - 2.

 WE SAY OUR GOODBYES AND ROLL HOME WITH TRAILER AND SNOWPLOW IN TOW. WE TALK TO BOTH DAUGHTERS WHO I JUST ADORE DOING FACETIME WITH.

 BACK HOME WE WATCH THE OSCARS A LITTLE BIT. FOR 2 1/2 HOURS I COULD NOT MOVE. I ACTUALLY FEEL LIKE A LARGE SEAL ON SAND.  BY 11PM I HAD A NIGHT CAP AND HEADED TO BED. WE DID WATCH 2 EPISODES OF THE CONNERS. ONE WAS VERY GOOD AND THE OTHER WAS SO-SO AT BEST.

 MONDAY    4 - 26 - 21

 IT IS ALWAYS FRICKIN' SOMETHING.............

 LITTLE BIT OF A LONG DAY WITH PROJECTS.

 OUR ELDEST COMES HOME AFTER HER SMALL BIRTHDAY GATHERING IN THE POCONOS. I AM SO ENVIOUS. SOME OF THE GIRLS POSTED PICTURES ON FACEBOOK.  THEY WERE CUTE AND THANKED US FOR USING OUR HOME.

 I WANTED TO CONTINUE WOOD CHIPPING BUT THE BODY WAS NOT INTO IT. SO.....I DID SMALL PROJECTS.

 - FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE THREE TIMES. ( MOST FOR YOUNGEST AND HER APARTMENT )

 1- PICKED UP A BRAND NEW 3 IN 1 FOOSBALL , AIR HOCKEY , AND PING PONG TABLE.

 2- PICKED UP A NICE SWIVEL MONITOR.

 3 - PICKED UP THREE 2XL GOLDEN STATE WARRIOR BASKETBALL SHIRTS.

 - MADE A BANK DEPOSIT.

 - ARRIVE AT THE NAIL AND CHANGE THE MARQUEE , DO A LITTLE CLEANING , FIX A LEAK UNDER THE PEDESTAL SINK IN THE MEN'S BATHROOM , AND CALL OUR REFRIGERATION TECH. WHY CALL HIM ?

 - THE REASON - NOT SURE IF THIS IS GOOD LUCK OR BAD LUCK. I HAPPEN TO CLIMB UP ON THE TOP OF THE WALK-IN FRIDGE AND NOTICE TOTALLY BURNT OUT WIRES. THEY CONTROL OUR DRAFTS SYSTEM AND I WAS WONDERING WHY THEY WERE POURING SO WARM AND FOAMY. IT LOOKED LIKE IT WAS TORCHED WITH A HOT IRON. I SPLICE THE WIRES AND RE-CONNECT EVERYTHING. I CALLED OUR TECH FOR ADVICE.

 - HANG A DROP LIGHT IN THE KITCHEN AREA. TAKE OLD ONE DOWN.

  ROLL HOME AND UNLOAD EVERYTHING. START HOME PROJECTS :

 - REMOVE BBQ HANDLE AND ADD ANOTHER ONE MORE SECURELY.

 - HANG A DROP LIGHT IN OUR GARAGE.

 - PLAY WITH THE PUP CHASING A TENNIS BALL......TOO FUNNY. SHE IS SUCH A NUT.

 - RE-FIX A BROKEN PATIO UMBRELLA.

 - HELP UNLOAD THE VAN WHEN OUR ELDEST CAME HOME.

 - PICK UP PRIZES LEFT BY MAZE.

 - DRILL OUT A SHOWER HEAD FOR THE 4TH TIME. I INSTALL IT FOR THE 4TH TIME IN OUR SHOWER AND FOR THE 4TH TIME IT BLOWS. I REMOVE IT , THROW IT OUT , AND RE-INSTALL THE SUNFLOWER SHOWER HEAD......FOR THE 4TH TIME.

 THE SALVEY FAMILY IS HAVING A PRIVATE GET TOGETHER TO CELEBRATE TOMMY SCARS. IT IS NOT UNTIL JULY AT A NICE BANQUET HALL IN PROSPECT PARK. ANYWAY , I WAS SO MOVED WHEN THEY INVITED BOTH MY DAUGHTERS VIA FACEBOOK INVITATION. BOTH KIDS HAVE BEEN RUNNING ALL THE GOFUNDME STREAMING SHOWS FOR THEM. I ACTUALLY GOT A LITTLE UPSET.

 TRYING TO FIND THE ORIGINAL CARPET TILES WE GOT FOR FREE IS EYE OPENING. THE 120 TILES I LAID WERE SHORT BY 6 PIECES. I WENT ON THE WEBSITE GIVEN TO ME FROM THE SELLER. ARE YOU KIDDING ME ???...........$22 A TILE ???!!! YEP.....CRAIGSLIST HERE I COME !

 PHILLIES HOLD ON AND DESERVE THE 2 - 1 WIN. WHEELER PITCHED PERFECT. NERIS GAVE US A HEART ATTACK AGAIN. BEST LINE IS WHEN NERIS GAVE UP A RUN AND IT IS NOW 1ST & 3RD WITH ONE OUT. KRUK SAYS , " AND THEY WONDER WHY WE DRINK. "

 I DID NOT KNOW THEY BROUGHT UP HERRERA FOR CENTER FIELD. HE DID MAKE A VERY NICE FINAL CATCH.

 76ERS PLAY THE CRAPPIEST TEAM IN THE NBA. I GUESS WE NEEDED A 30 POINT WIN.

 FLYERS - ON SUNDAY , I DID NOT KNOW THE FLYERS WERE DOWN 3 - 1 WITH 90 SECONDS LEFT. THEY PULL THE GOALIE AND GIROUX SCORES TWICE TO TIE THE GAME IN REGULATION. THAT IS CRAZY. EVEN CRAZIER....THEY WON IN A SHOOT-OUT.

 DINNER WITH OUR ELDEST AND MY MOM'S " MANIGUTS ". WE GET UPDATED ON THE GOOD TIMES IN THE POCONOS. I AM SO JONESING TO HEAD EAST OR NORTH.

 MY ELDEST SAYS I DON'T READ YOUR WEBSITE ANYMORE BECAUSE YOU ALWAYS TALK ABOUT HOW HOT GIRLS ARE. BOY , SHE HAS NO CLUE ABOUT GUYS AND I AM TOTALLY FINE SHE DOESN'T READ THIS DAILY BLOG.

 WE WATCH THE FINAL EPISODES OF SEASON 3 THE CONNERS. THE FINALE WAS VERY GOOD.

 I HEAD TO BED AND GET UP AT LEAST 15 TIMES TO USE THE BATHROOM OR JUST WAKING UP. I HAD A HEADACHE AND TOOK IBUPROFEN. IT DEFINITELY HELPED.

 SLOWLY BOOKING SHOWS AGAIN. IT IS NICE.

 DAMN.....FORGOT ANOTHER GOOD DREAM.

 TUESDAY      4 - 27 - 21

 YOU WANT A LONG DAY AND NIGHT.........YOU GOT IT.

 START MORNING OUT BY TALKING TO A COUSIN. NOT ONE WORD CAN BE WRITTEN HERE. THE FACE WHEELS GAVE ME FROM THE OTHER ROOM DURING THIS CONVERSATION WAS LIKE " YOU ARE GOING STRAIGHT TO HELL ".

 MOVE ALL TOOLS FROM ONE VEHICLE TO MY VAN. I ALSO LOAD UP A GORILLA LADDER.

 WE ARE SEARCHING FOR FABRIC TO REUPHOLSTER SOME DINING ROOM CHAIRS. A LOCAL POCONO COMPANY HAD SOME COOL DEER & BEAR FABRIC FOR $35 A YARD......NOPE.  ON MICHAELS WEBSITE WE FOUND FABRIC FOR $2 A YARD. WHEELS DROVE THERE AND IT CAN ONLY BE ORDERED ONLINE. WE LATER COULD NOT FIND IT. SO AGAIN....NOPE. I GO DOWN MY BASEMENT AND FIND 3 FABRICS. I USE A STAPLE GUN TO TEST 2 SEATS WITH 2 DIFFERENT FABRICS. WHEELS PICKS ONE AND THEY ARE FREE NOW.....DONE.

 LOAD UP AND HEAD TO A SIDE JOB IN ARDMORE. I SPENT A LITTLE OVER 3 HOURS. A FRIEND JOINS ME FOR THE LAST 30 MINUTES.

 BOTH OF US HEAD TO THE NAIL. WE DOUBLE CHECK MY WIRING AND IT WAS CORRECT FOR THE DRAFT BEER COMPRESSOR. OUR FRIDGE TECH STOPS BY AND I PAY HIM FOR HIS WORK FROM LAST WEEK.

 I BRING A EXTENSION CORD TO USE FOR MY " NEW " SHOP LIGHT WHICH WORKS GREAT. WE REPLACE IT WITH THE LONG CORD AND............ IT SPARKS. OF COURSE IT DOES.

 ROLL HOME AND I AM BEAT FROM CLIMBING ON LADDERS AND THE SIDE JOB.

 WE HAVE A REALLY NICE BBQ DINNER OUTSIDE ON THE PATIO. I REALLY LIKE BBQING.

 OUR ELDEST GOES TO AN INTERVIEW AND GETS A JOB AT A LOCAL MEXICAN BAR.

 ELDEST ASKS FOR MONEY SO I CHARGE INTEREST. A $40 LOAN WITH A PAYMENT OF $50 BACK.

 I SIT DOWN AND WATCH THE PHILLIES AND FLYERS BLOW. MY CELL PHONE GOES OFF. IT IS " HOLLYWOOD " AND HE HAS ASKED ME AGAIN TO SIT IN ON THE RADIO SHOW/ STREAM OF DELCO LIVE.

 AROUND 8:45PM I ROLL TO RIDLEY , PA. THESE GUYS HAVE AN EXTREMELY PROFESSIONAL SET-UP WITH CAMERAS , COMPUTERS , MONITORS , MICS , BIG TV'S , AND MORE. WE HAVE FUN AND TALK SILLY SUBJECTS TO PAST MIDNIGHT.  OVER 1400 PEOPLE TUNED IN. I BELIEVE THE CAMERAS ADDED 20 POUNDS TO MY FACE. IT WAS FUN AS ALWAYS. YOU CAN SEE THE REPLAY ON FACEBOOK.

 I ARRIVE HOME AROUND 12:45AM AND I SEE A FIRE PIT GOING. I JOIN MY ELDEST AND A FRIEND WHO CAME LATER UNTIL AFTER 2AM. I HAVE A NIGHTCAP WITH THEM.,

 I HEAD TO BED AND TAKE THE PUP WITH ME. SHE JUMPS ON MY BED AND JUMPS DOWN AND HURTS HER LEG. I FEEL SO BAD FOR HER. BUT LATER SHE JUMPED OFF THE BED AND WENT UPSTAIRS TO CRASH WITH MY ELDEST. SHE WAS GOOD BY THE MORNING.

 WEDNESDAY    4 - 28 - 21

 ALL DAY I THOUGHT IT WAS THURSDAY. I EVEN CHECKED TO SEE WHAT PICK THE EAGLES TOOK IN THE THURSDAY NFL DRAFT.

 I HAVE ENOUGH FABRIC TO RE-UPHOLSTER 4 DINING ROOM CHAIRS. UNFORTUNATELY , I DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH STAPLES. I HAD TO STOP THIS PROJECT. THREE DIFFERENT BOXES OF STAPLES AND NONE FIT MY STAPLER.

 I BROUGHT ALL TOOLS INSIDE AND MORE. IT FELT LIKE RAIN. I WAS RIGHT.

 FOUND A NICE BOOM BOX IN OUR BASEMENT WITH NO CORD. SO , I FOUND A CORD TOO.

 IS IT WRONG TO ASK MY ELDEST TO FINISH PLACING 200 SEASHELLS IN THE GARDEN AT 10PM AT NIGHT ? YEAH.....I DIDN'T THINK SO EITHER. HEY , SHE HAD A FRIEND HELP.

 SPEAKING OF GARDENS , I FINISHED ALL GARDENS THAT NEEDED WOOD CHIPPING. THREE MORE TIMES I DROVE TO PICK UP WOOD CHIPS ( TOTALLY 5 ) AND FILLED MY UTILITY TRAILER. I DID NOT KNOW WE ALMOST HIT 90 DEGREES TODAY. AT LEAST TWICE I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO HAVE A STROKE. THE BEDS CAME OUT REALLY NICE AND I EVEN POSTED SOME PICTURES ON FACEBOOK. IT WAS NICE TO HAVE OVER 50 FAMILY AND FRIENDS COMPLIMENT ME ON THE HARD WORK.

 I MUST SAY ONE THING. I FRICKIN' LOVE MY TRAILER !!! I EVEN INSTALLED HOOKS ON THE SIDE. I USED ONE HOOK TO HANG MY CELL PHONE ON TO PLAY MUSIC FROM SPOTIFY. WE MADE A PHENOMENAL PLAYLIST. MAN , DOES MUSIC HELP ESPECIALLY WHEN WORKING IN THE SUN.

 BACK HOME AND INSIDE I AM BEAT. I NEVER THOUGHT AN ICE COLD  PBR POUNDER WOULD TASTE SO GOOD. I STILL BELIEVE WATER HAS MORE ALCOHOL THAN PABST BLUE RIBBON.

 WATCHED THE SEASON FINALE OF THE FALCON AND THE WINTER SOLDIER. I HAVE TO SAY IT BORDERLINED EXCELLENT BUT I WILL GIVE IT A VERY VERY GOOD.

 A NICE DINNER OUT ON THE PATIO. ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS TO DO.

 MY HANDS AND BODY HURT SO MUCH I TOOK 1/3 OF A BOTTLE OF IBUPROFEN WITH 2 VODKA / COKE ZEROES. IT SEEMED TO WORK.

 ANYONE WATCH THE PHILLIES ? ANYONE SEE BRYCE HARPER GET DRILLED IN THE FACE BY THE CARDINAL'S PITCHER. THE NEXT BATTER " DIDI " GOT DRILLED IN THE BACK. OH MY GOD DID JOHN KRUK GO APE SHIT. PHILLIES WIN ON A COMEBACK 5-3. COULD THIS BE A LITTLE SPARK FOR THE OFFENSE ?

 UNION WITH A SOLID WIN 2 DAYS AGO IN THE FIRST LEG 3-0.

 76ERS START FAST AND FINISH FAST......GOOD WIN.

 NEXTDOOR WEBSITE - A LITTLE MIX UP FOR A POTENTIALLY BIG PERSONAL PRODUCT FOR ME AND MAYBE EVEN WHEELS SOON. THE PERSON LABELED IT " SOLD " SO I INQUIRED WHY AFTER SHE PROMISED ME ACCESS FIRST. SHE DID NOT SELL IT. SO , I RE-SCHEDULED FOR SUNDAY. WE WILL SEE.

 I AM SO JONESING TO HEAD EAST OR NORTH. LEANING ON EAST WITH ALL THIS WARM WEATHER COMING IN.

 I FACETIMED WITH MY YOUNGEST FOR OVER 45 MINUTES AND ADORED IT.

 WHEELS , ELDEST , AND A FAMILY MEMBER GO TO A VIEWING , SAM'S PIZZA FOR DINNER ( NOT SO GOOD EXPERIENCE ) , AND SEE A MUSICIAN FRIEND.

 WE FACETIME AGAIN WITH OUR YOUNGEST AT COLLEGE WHILE OUR ELDEST PLACED SEASHELLS IN OUR GARDEN. YEAH THE JOKES ROLLED.

 AT THE END OF THE FACETIME PHONE CALL I ASKED MY YOUNGEST ( WHILE I LOOKED AT HER ) , " WOULD IT BE WRONG TO KISS YOU GOOD NIGHT ? JUST TURN YOUR HEAD AND I WILL KISS YOU ON THE CHEEK. " SHE SAYS , " HOW ARE YOU GOING TO DO THAT ?......LIKE THIS ? " AND PLACES HER CHEEK RIGHT UP ON THE CELL PHONE'S CAMERA. KID HAS A SENSE OF HUMOR.

   THURSDAY       4 - 29 - 21

 I AM NOT SURE WHY I AM HURTING SO BAD. I ASSUME IT IS THE WEEDING , WOOD CHIPPING , ALCOHOL , AND BEING FAT.  I AM MOVING PRETTY SLOW THE LAST SEVERAL DAYS.

 " THE GREATEST MOVIE EVER MADE " - I AM NOT SURE WHY I WATCHED NEARLY 2 HOURS OF THIS 4 HOUR RELIGIOUS MOVIE BUT I DID A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO. THE CAST - CHARLTON HESTON , TELLY SAVALAS , JOHN WAYNE , CLAUDE RAINS , ANGELA LANSBURY , MARTIN LANDAU , SIDNEY POITIER , PAT BOONE , RODDY MCDOWALL , SHELLEY WINTERS , JAMIE FARR , ROBERT BLAKE , CHRISTOPHER LEE , AND WAY MORE. I MEAN THIS 1965 MOVIE WAS A SERIOUS WHO'S WHO FOR ITS TIME AND THE SPECIAL EFFE3CTS WERE PRETTY GOOD FOR 50+ YEARS AGO.

 OUTSIDE I SWEEP OFF WOOD CHIPS ON ALL THE WOOD BORDERS AND DECORATIVE ROCKS IN THE GARDENS.

 USING A CIRCULAR SAW I CUT OFF A 1/2" OF A BASEMENT DOOR SO IT SWINGS OPEN. THIS WAS NECESSARY WHEN I LAID THE NEW CARPET TILES WHICH ROSE THE FLOOR A 1/2". LET ME TELL YOU CARRYING THE DOOR FROM THE BASEMENT UP TO THE PATIO AND BACK DOWN WAS NOT FUN. I VACUUMED AND CLEANED UP.

 CHECKED OUR VAN'S OIL AND MEASURED THE DISTANCE OF OUR STREET WOOD BORDERS.

 IT SEEMS EVERYDAY I HAVE 3 - 5 PROJECTS. I REALLY WANT TO HEAD EAST.

 CUT OUR LAWN AND A RENTAL PROPERTY. IT WAS GOOD TO GET IT DONE BEFORE THE RAIN CAME. I ALSO WATERED A FIRE PIT AREA THAT BURNED OUR GRASS AND SPRAYED DOWN THE VEHICLES COVERED IN YELLOW POLLEN DUST.

 WHEELS WALKS WITH A FRIEND.

 ELDEST TRIES NEW TRAINING AT A LOCAL MEXICAN BAR. IT DID NOT GO WELL.

 AN ISSUE I HAVE - ALWAYS INTRODUCE PEOPLE WHEN THEY FIRST ARRIVE FOR ANYTHING OR WHEN STARTING A NEW JOB. IT IS JUST COMMON DAMN COURTESY.

 FLYERS AND PHILLIES BLOW.

 EAGLES GET THE WIDE RECEIVER THEY WANTED...........HEISMAN TROPHY WINNER FROM ALABAMA DEVONTA SMITH. I KNOW HE SET ALL KINDS OF RECORDS FOR CATCHES AND TOUCHDOWNS BUT HE REMINDS ME OF DESEAN JACKSON. THIS IS GOOD IN HIS PRIME BUT THE GUY IS 160 POUNDS. I SUSPECT HE WILL GET INJURED ON THE PLANE RIDE TO PHILLY.

  WE WATCH FAMILY FEUD WHICH IS USUALLY ENTERTAINING. MAN , I WOULD BE SO BAD AT THIS GAME.

 WE WATCH A MOVIE WHICH WON BEST LEADING FEMALE ACTRESS AND BEST MOVIE. IT IS CALLED NOMANDLAND.   A TRUE STORY ABOUT HOW PEOPLE ADAPT TO EXTREMELY HARD TIMES AND MOVE TO LIVE ON THE ROAD , DESERT , OUT OF A VAN , TRAILER PARKS , ETC.   FOR THE MOST PART IT WAS NON-SCRIPTED AND ONLY A CREW OF 30 FOR THE WHOLE MOVIE. AS THEY FILMED THE CREW ALSO LIVED IN VANS TO SIMULATE THE HARDSHIPS. IT IS BASED ON A TRUE STORY AND BOOK. MANY OF THE ACTORS WERE REAL PEOPLE TELLING THEIR STORY. THE REAL ACTORS AND CREW BLENDED IN WITH THEM. IT WAS HEART MOVING AND EMOTIONAL BUT ALSO SLOW AT TIMES. OVERALL I THOUGHT IT WAS GOOD.

 OPEN THE WINDOWS AND HEAD TO BED. AGAIN , MY BODY IS ACHING. I DID NOT SLEEP WELL AT ALL. I HAD TO TURN ON MY RADIO 10 TIMES DURING THE NIGHT JUST TO SEE HOW EXCITED EAGLES FANS AND RADIO HOSTS WERE IN GETTING THE PICK THEY WANTED.

  FRIDAY     4 - 31 - 21

 AN EMOTIONAL NIGHT.

 AND THE WINDS CAME........DAMN.  I WAS A LITTLE NERVOUS FOR OUR FRIENDS RENTING THE MOUNTAIN HOUSE. THE WINDS WERE JUST AS BAD THERE THAN HERE. CHARLIE WEAVERS RESTAURANT HAD TO CLOSE DUE TO LOST POWER.

 I TOOK A RIDE TO GET OUR YOUNGEST. THIS IS SOMETHING I LOOK FORWARD TO EVERY TIME.  I TOOK MY BACK ROADS AND GAVE THE FINGER TO THE PACKED TRAFFIC ON 76 EAST......FOOLS I TELL YA !! FOOLS !!

 I TAKE THE PUP WITH ME AS A SURPRISE. THIS IS ALWAYS A JOY. WHEN I PICK UP MY YOUNGEST WE BOTH DECIDE ONE THING......DOG PARK.  THE WEATHER CHANGED FROM SUNNY TO WINDY TO RAINY BACK TO SUNNY.  OUR PUP DID NOT CARE ONE BIT. SHE HAD AN ABSOLUTELY BLAST. SOME OF THE OWNERS WE TALKED TO WERE VERY COOL. THE ASIAN GIRL IN SPANDEX SAID SHE LIKED MY KID'S SHIRT. THAT WAS VERY NICE. I REPLIED AND SAID I LIKED HER ASS.

 WE STOP AT WAWA AND THE HARDWARE STORE.

  BACK HOME I REPLACE SOME TRAILER LIGHTS ( FOR FREE FROM FB MARKETPLACE ). I REPLACED 4 BRAND NEW SIDE LIGHTS ( 2 ON EACH SIDE ) AND THAN I WANTED TO REPLACE THE RUNNING AND BRAKE LIGHTS. I COULD NOT FIGURE OUT HOW THE HELL TO REMOVE THE ORIGINAL COVERS. IT GOT SO WINDY I DECIDED TO DO THIS ANOTHER DAY.

 I DID A VERY GOOD MOVE BY BUSTING MY ASS WITH 3 TRAILER LOADS OF WOOD CHIPS 2 DAYS AGO. THIS TOTALED 5 LOADS AND COMPLETED MY TASK OF FILLING ALL OUR GARDENS. WHY WAS THIS GOOD ? THE OWNER OF THE WOOD CHIPS MESSAGED ME TODAY THE WOOD CHIPS ARE ALL GONE. NOW THAT IS GOOD TIMING.

 I RE-UPHOLSTER 4 DINING ROOM SEATS. THIS IS DEFINITELY NOT MY FORTE BUT .......THEY LOOK ALOT BETTER THAN THEY DID.

 I GET SUPER TIRED AND TAKE A NAP.

 WHEEL'S AND KIDS GO TO DINNER AT A FAMILY MEMBER'S HOUSE.

 I HAVE DINNER AND ROLL TO THE NAIL. I RUN AN EXTENSION CORD FOR " NEW " LIGHTS I INSTALLED IN THE KITCHEN AREA. IT IS TWICE AS GOOD FOR BRIGHTNESS NOW.

 PHILLIES SHOW TOUGHNESS ( TWO BENCH CLEARING GATHERINGS ) AND WIN A VERY GOOD AND LUCKY GAME OVER THE STINKING DICKHEAD METS 2 - 1.

 76ERS WITH A GOOD WIN TOO.

 I SPEND 3 HOURS CLEANING , MOVED TABLES & BARSTOOLS FOR SOCIAL DISTANCING , AND PREPPED FOR OUR FIRST NIGHT WITH LIVE MUSIC AND PEOPLE IN ATTENDANCE. IT WAS A LATE SHOW....10PM START. I WAS GETTING A LITTLE NERVOUS BECAUSE BY 9PM NOT ONE PERSON SHOWED YET. I PUSHED BACK ARRIVALS FROM BOTH BARTENDERS TO 9PM.

 BUT THAN......THEY CAME IN DROVES. THE MUSIC WAS ACOUSTIC TO UPBEAT TO MOSH METAL. THE MAIN BAND TONIGHT WAS FAT COBRA AND THEY HAD A BALL.  THE BARTENDERS RAN HARD THE WHOLE NIGHT. I TOLD THEM I COULD NOT BE MORE PROUD. THEY WERE EXCELLENT.

 A FRIEND STOPS AT OUR HOUSE TO PICK UP BOOZE TO BRING TO THE NAIL. IT WAS A DRINKING AND TIPPING CROWD.

 AT THE NED OF THE NIGHT I HANG OUT WITH SOME FAMILY , REGULARS , AND A BAND MEMBER NAMED " HOLLYWOOD ". IT WAS FUN TO DO THIS. I HAVE NOT DONE THIS IN OVER A YEAR.

 BY 2AM I ROLL HOME. I WAS EXHAUSTED AND WENT RIGHT TO BED.

  SUNDAY  5 - 1 - 21

 YOUR HOUSE.........OUR HOUSE. IT WAS VERY NICE.

 START MORNING OFF WITH SOME MINOR PROJECTS , WEB SURFING , AND BLOGGING. I ALSO BEEN SPRAYING OUR VEHICLES WITH WATER EACH MORNING BECAUSE OF THE FILM OF YELLOW POLLEN DUST. APPARENTLY IT IS BAD FOR CARS.

 TAKE A RIDE TO THE NAIL TO CLEAN AND GET SOME CHAIRS.

 TAKE A RIDE TO MY PARENTS TO PICK UP 2 TABLES AND 8 CHAIRS. THE TABLES ARE AT A BROTHER'S HOUSE.

 CALL BROTHER TO PICK UP TABLES. HE SAYS HE WILL CALL ME BACK. I START TO DRIVE TO THE NAIL. I DECIDE TO NOT WAIT ( JUST 10 MINUTES ) AND PICK UP A NAIL TABLE. HE TEXTS ME BACK , " GEEZ , YOU COULDN'T WAIT 5 MINUTES ? " I TEXT BACK A JOKE AND REPLY , " TECHNICALLY IT WAS 10 MINUTES. "

 TAKE TABLES AND CHAIRS TO A FRIEND'S HOUSE IN HAVERTOWN.

 TAKE A RIDE TO PICK-UP MORE CARPET TILE AT THE SAME HOUSE. NO ONE WAS HOME........OF COURSE.

 BACK HOME I SHOWERED AND GOT DRESSED. ALL OF US HEAD TO A WONDERFUL LUNCHEON FOR MY MOTHER-IN-LAW'S BIRTHDAY. THERE WAS ABOUT 14 FAMILY MEMBERS IN ATTENDANCE AND IT WAS SO GOOD TO SEE THEM. OF COURSE I ENTERTAINED WITH JOKES AND STORIES. FOOD WAS VERY GOOD , WE WATCHED THE BIRTHDAY VIDEO AGAIN WHICH SEEMED BETTER THE 2ND TIME AROUND , AND SAW A RED FOX NURSING 4 PUPS ( TECHNICALLY CALLED KITS ). WE ALSO PLAYED SOME FOOSBALL. IT WAS A PICTURE PERFECT DAY.

 BACK HOME WE CHILL. WHEELS INVITES HER FAMILY TO OUR HOUSE FOR DINNER. HER SISTER AND BROTHER SHOW UP WITH FAMILY AND WE ORDER FROM ZESTO'S. OUR  ELDEST TREATED !! IT WAS VERY GOOD AND ALL OF US ATE OUT ON THE PATIO. MAN I LOVE DOING THAT. WE EVEN HAD SOME SOFT MUSIC.

 BEFORE FAMILY ARRIVED I RAISED OUR PATIO FURNITURE UMBRELLAS , LEAF BLEW , MOVED VEHICLES TO THE BACK YARD , AND PICKED UP POOP. THIS IS MY LIFE.

 PHILLIES LOSE HEARTBREAKER AND NERIS IS SO F'N BAD AS A CLOSER. HE GIVES UP A 9TH INNING HOME RUN ......BLOW.

 OH , FLYERS LOSE TO NEW JERSEY FOR THE 8TH TIME IN 9 DAYS. JESUS , CAN WE PLAY SOMEONE ELSE ?

 UNION BLOW TO LOSING 2 - 0 YESTERDAY.

 ALL OF US PLAY A " MEME " CARD GAME. IT IS VERY SIMILAR TO APPLES TO APPLES. IT WAS FUN AND JOKES WERE MADE.

 MY BROTHER-IN-LAW IS A RETIRED CHIROPRACTOR. HE WORKED ON WHEELS AND OUR ELDEST. THEY REALLY ENJOY IT.  I , ON THE OTHER HAND , KEEP SEEING NECKS BREAK LIKE AN ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER MOVIE. I DON'T THINK THERE ARE ANY DOCUMENTED CASES WERE A PERSON DIES FROM A CHIROPRACTIC SESSION BUT MAN THAT IS ALL I THOUGHT WHILE HE TREATED MY WIFE AND KID.

 MY ELDEST FRIEND / BARTENDER STOPS BY. I ADORE THIS GIRL. SHE SPECIFICALLY STOPPED BY TO BE TREATED TOO. OH MY GOD SHE LOVED IT. AGAIN , I AM THINKING THE WORSE AND IMAGINE , " HOW THE HELL DO I TELL HER PARENTS MY BROTHER-IN-LAW SNAPPED HER NECK ? " I KNOW THIS IS WRONG BUT IT IS THE DAMN D.N.A. AND BLOOD THAT IS IN ME. AGAIN , WITH 30,000 CHIROPRACTOR DOCTORS , NOT ONE CASE OF ANYONE DYING FROM A SNAPPED NECK EVER HAPPENED...........LIKE IN THE MOVIES.

 WE WIND DOWN THE NIGHT AND I GET TIRED. I DID LONG PAUSES OF DRINKING TONIGHT FOR SOME REASON BUT OVERALL I WAS JUST TIRED. I AM JUST STARTING TO GET BACK TO FEELING OKAY FROM ALL THE YARD AND WOOD CHIP WORK. NOW , IF I COULD ONLY LOSE A 100 POUNDS.

  SUNDAY     5 - 2 - 21

 THANK YOU 50X'S PLUS TWO PHONES CALLS JUST 1 HOUR AFTER WE LEFT.

 ON OCCASION I GET THESE QUESTIONS. TODAY I RECEIVED A FACEBOOK MESSAGE ......" HOW THE HELL DOES SO MUCH HAPPEN TO YOU EACH DAY ? "

 HERE IS MY DAY :

 DROVE TO PEPBOYS TO PICK UP CARB CLEANER , OIL , AND A CAN OF BLASTER. LET ME TELL YOU PEPBOYS WILL NOT OPEN UNTIL EXACTLY 9AM.....AND I MEAN EXACTLY.

 IT TOOK ME 2 MONTHS FOR A SNOW  BLOWER MECHANIC TO COME TO MY HOUSE TO SERVICE 2 SNOW BLOWERS. IT ENDS UP HE WAS AT MY HOUSE BEFORE. I SOLD HIM MY OLD SNOW BLOWER FOR $60.

 ANYWAY , I PREPPED EVERYTHING FOR HIM BEFORE HE ARRIVES AT 9AM ALONG WITH CLEANING OUT MY VAN AND ORGANIZING MY TOOLS. . OH.....HE DIDN'T GET HERE UNTIL 10AM.....VIA UBER. I HAD SOME ISSUES. HE WAS NICE BUT TOLD ME TO PICK UP A PART CALLED A 1/4" FUEL LINE. WE STOP AT HOME DEPOT , WHEELS DRIVES TO HAVERTOWN TO MAKE THE EXCHANGE , BRINGS IT BACK , AND......HE SAYS IT IS THE WRONG PART. I CALL HIM AND ASK WHY. HE SAYS , " YOU GOT THE RIGHT PART , IT JUST DOESN'T FIT. " ( EVER SEE A DOG'S HEAD SLIGHTLY TURN WHEN CONFUSED )

 OF COURSE I NEED MORE PARTS AND MY SNOW BLOWER CAN NOT BE FIXED WITHOUT THEM. THE OTHER SNOW BLOWER IS READY TO GO. BOTH HAD THE OIL CHANGED AND CARBURETORS CLEANED OUT.

 I CAN ONLY STAY A MINUTE OR TWO BECAUSE I AM DRIVING MY YOUNGEST BACK TO COLLEGE. NOW , OUR LITTLE ADVENTURE......SHE SHOOK HER HEAD AND GIGGLED.

 FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE AGAIN - C-PAP MACHINES AND PARTS ARE VERY EXPENSIVE. PARTS ARE EASILY $50 AND UP AND MACHINES ARE $500 AND UP. TODAY I GOT 20 MACHINES AND A 100 PARTS....FOR FREE. WE ALSO GOT SOME SHOWER RAILINGS AND OTHER THINGS. A CHURCH IN SPRINGFIELD WAS MORE THAN HAPPY TO GIVE THEM TO US. SHE ACTUALLY SAID , " YOU'RE DOING ME A FAVOR. " I MET A REALLY NICE WOMAN AND HER DAUGHTER WHO SAT BY THE SIDE DOOR AND PLAYED WITH ART STUFF. MY YOUNGEST JUST SHOOK HER HEAD AS I SAID , " JUST GRAB ALL THE BAGS AND START LOADING. WE HAD A TON OF STUFF.

 THE LADY WHO GAVE ME 120 CARPET TILES FOR FREE DOES NOT WANT TO GIVE ME 2 EXTRA TILES SHE FOUND. SHE NOW WANTS TO SELL THEM TO ME. I GIGGLED.

 FOR YEARS I HAVE BEEN RE-CYCLING C-PAP PARTS WITH MY 3 MACHINES I HAVE OWNED OVER THE DECADES. NOW......ALL NEW.

 NEXT AND JUST 4 MINUTES AWAY A PERSON WAS GIVING AWAY NEW 4X4X12 TREATED LUMBER. HE ORDERED TOO MANY AND THE POST WAS ONLY 16 HOURS OLD. WE DROVE 4 MINUTES TO THE LOCATION AND THEY WERE GONE.....DAMN IT.

 A LITTLE RUSE - MY YOUNGEST AND I HEAD TO MY PARENTS HOUSE TO PICK THEM UP. I DROP HER OFF A BLOCK AWAY BY A PARK. I GO GET MY PARENTS AND DRIVE BACK TO THE PARK. MY KID IS ON THE SIDEWALK AND I ROLL DOWN THE VAN WINDOW AND SAY , " EXCUSE ME , CAN YOU TELL ME HOW TO GET TO CITY LINE AVENUE ? " MY PARENTS SHE IT IS THEIR GRAND DAUGHTER. MY DAD GIGGLES AND MY MOM SCREAMS WITH DELIGHT.

 WE DRIVE TO CENTER CITY AND GET REALLY LUCKY WITH A PARKING SPOT RIGHT OUT FRONT OF MY AUNT'S HOUSE. HAVING MY MOM " SAVE " THIS SPOT WHILE MY DAD SUPERVISED WAS HEAD SHAKING. WE WAITED UNTIL THE PERSON MOVED THEIR CAR AND I PARALLEL PARKED IN.

 DOWN THE STREET VICTOR'S CAFE HAD OUTSIDE SEATING AND NEXT DOOR A LARGE BIRTHDAY PARTY. IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL DAY TO BE OUTSIDE.

 THERE IS A REASON I AM HERE.....WORK. I INSTALLED A GRAB BAR BY A TOILET FOR MY AUNTS TO USE. THEY ARE IN THEIR 90'S SO IT IS HARD TO GET UP AND MOVE AROUND ESPECIALLY WHEN ON THE COMMODE. I ALSO CAULKED THEIR TUB. THE WHOLE TIME I HAD MY YOUNGEST HELP ME WHICH WAS GLORIOUS. THE MORE TIME I SPEND WITH HER THE BETTER. PLUS SHE IS AN EXCELLENT HELPER. WE GOT DOWN IN ABOUT AN HOUR.

 LUNCH WITH EVERYONE AND WE CATCH UP. IT WAS FUN.

 WE LOAD UP THE TOOLS AND MY 2 AUNTS THANK ME 100 TIMES. I AM SERIOUS 100 TIMES. SHE INSISTS ON GIVING ME MONEY. I TELL HER A $1,000. WE SETTLE ON $25. I GAVE THE MONEY TO MY KID. SHE HAD A VERY GOOD VISIT MONEY-WISE BETWEEN THE NAIL AND HERE. IT WAS NICE AS MY DAD AND HIS SISTER TRULY APPRECIATED THE WORK WE DID.

 WE DRIVE OUR YOUNGEST BACK TO COLLEGE. WE GO THROUGH CENTER CITY , CHINA TOWN , AND  HER NEW HOUSE SHE IS RENTING LATER THIS MONTH. WE SEE AN ABSOLUTE TON OF PEOPLE OUTSIDE AND ENJOYING THE DAY. EVERY RESTAURANT HAD OUTDOOR SEATING. MAN THERE WAS ASS OUT TODAY.

 DROP OFF OUR YOUNGEST AND HEAD HOME ALONG RIVER DRIVE. OF COURSE IT IS BLOCKED DUE TO THE DAD GAIL REGATTA. AGAIN , A SHITLOAD OF PEOPLE OUT ESPECIALLY ALONG THE SCHUYLKILL RIVER AND KELLY DRIVE.

 I TAKE A BACK WAY AND THE HOMES WE SEE ARE BEAUTIFUL.

 DROP OFF MY PARENTS AND HEAD HOME. THE LAST 5 MINUTES I CAN BARELY KEEP MY EYES OPEN. I ARRIVE AND WHEELS IS WASHING ALL THE CARS.

 I TAKE A NAP. PHONES RINGS. IT IS MY AUNT THANKING ME. SHE CALLED TWICE IN LESS THAN 1 HOUR.

 I TEST THE SNOW BLOWERS. BOTH START RIGHT UP.

 A WONDERFUL DINNER OF LEFTOVERS AND SOME FOOD DROPPED OFF BY MY SISTER-IN-LAW. WE DINE OUT ON THE PATIO ON THIS BEAUTIFUL DAY.

 WE WATCH THE PHILLIES. OH MY GOD I CAN'T TAKE THIS TEAM WITH SUCH STUPID 6TH GRADE ERRORS. A HORRIBLE LOSS TO A HATED MET'S TEAM.

 76ERS WITH A FUN WIN WITH JUST .1 OF A SECOND LEFT.

 I GO TO MY ROOM AND GET THE WORSE BAD BEATED HANDS EVER IN POKER. I ALSO WATCH SPORTS AND OTHER THINGS. WHEELS WATCHES AMERICAN IDOL.

 OUTSIDE I JOIN MY ELDEST AND PUP FOR A FIRE PIT. SHE LAID A BLANKET DOWN AND IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL NIGHT. I USED " OMEGA " LOG AND WE TOOK SOME REALLY COOL PICTURES OF IT BURNING FROM THE INSIDE OUT. IT LOOKED LIKE A METEOR.

 BY MIDNIGHT I HEAD TO BED. 

  MONDAY     5 - 3 - 21

 I JUST CAN'T GET CAUGHT UP. IT SEEMS WHEN I FINISH ONE THING 2 MORE POP UP.  I HAVE A PUNCH LIST AND EVERY TIME I CROSS ONE OFF I ADD MORE PROJECTS.

 I SPEND A SOLID HOUR SIFTING THROUGH SOME C-PAP MACHINES AND PARTS. ALL PARTS ARE NEW AND THE MACHINES ARE USED BUT SEEM IN GOOD SHAPE. THERE HAS TO BE OVER 5K IN PRODUCT HERE. NOW........WHAT TO DO WITH IT ALL ?

 ANOTHER SOLID HOUR OF DOING THE NAIL BOOKS. I HAVE NOT UPDATED ANY BOOKS IN OVER A YEAR.  IT WAS EXTREMELY SAD WHEN I READ MY LAST LOG-IN ------ " SUNDAY MARCH 15TH 2020 CLOSED DUE TO CORONA VIRUS ". SINCE THAT DATE THERE WAS NOT ONE ENTRY UNTIL TODAY.

 BOTH RENTAL PROPERTIES ARE PRETTY BOOKED UP. THIS IS VERY GOOD AND NOT SO GOOD. I AM JONESING TO HEAD NORTH OR EAST........MOSTLY EAST.

 MEET A FRIEND AT MY PATENT'S HOUSE. HE RETURNED TABLES AND CHAIRS I LENT HIM.

 HANG WITH MY PARENTS FOR A LITTLE BIT.

 STOP AT THE NAIL FOR OVER AN HOUR TO DO " NAIL STUFF ".

 BACK HOME I CHILL , TAKE A NAP , AND FIX A CELL PHONE CORD.

 TALKED TO A FAVORITE COUSIN. HE IS TRYING TO SET UP A DINNER WITH SOME OTHER SOUTH PHILLY COUSINS. WE AGREED TO GO.

 SET-UP A LUNCHEON AT PAXON HOLLOW GOLF COURSE. THE OUTDOOR SEATING IS PRETTY COOL. I LIKE TO GET THE " PICK A GREEN " SEATING.  YOU GET TO TAKE GOLF CARTS TO THE GREEN OF CHOICE AND HAVE YOUR MEAL THERE. WAITRESSES GOLF CART BACK AND FORTH WITH SERVICE TOO. IT IS WIDE OPEN AND TABLES ARE IN A LARGE CIRCLE. THE KEY IS.......WEATHER. IF GOOD.....I'M BRINGING A PUTTER.

  I CAN SEE HOW FOREST FIRES START. OUR ELDEST HAD A FIRE PIT THE OTHER NIGHT. SHE ENDS IT AT 1AM. AROUND 3AM I USE THE BATHROOM AND OF COURSE PEEK OUT A WINDOW. I CAN SEE A FLAME POPPING UP WHEN THE WIND BLOWS. THE NEXT MORNING AROUND 7AM I STOKE THE ASHES AND A SMALL FLAME STARTED AND IT SMOLDERED FOR ANOTHER 4 HOURS AT LEAST. BASICALLY , CAMPERS THINK THEY PUT A FIRE OUT BUT 10 HOURS LATER  IT HAS THE POTENTIAL TO FLAME UP AGAIN.........ESPECIALLY WITH A STRONG BREEZE.

 WHEELS GOES TO THE DOCTOR'S OFFICE. THERE IS A CHANCE SHE HAS SLEEP APNEA. THOUGH THE DISCUSSION WAS FUNNY OF OTHER POSSIBLE SITUATIONS I WAS TOLD NOT TO WRITE ABOUT IT.

 BACK HOME I SETTLE IN.  A NICE MEAL OF LEFTOVERS AND WE WATCH 3 PHILLY TEAMS WIN.....FLYERS ( OVER RIVAL PENGUINS WHICH IS ALWAYS NICE )  , PHILLIES ( NERIS IS POSSIBLY MORE STRESSFUL THAN MITCH WILLIAMS ) , AND 76ERS ( BLOW A 30 POINT LEAD BUT STILL WIN ).

 76ERS TRYING TO HOLD ON TO THE NUMBER #1 SEED WHICH I THINK IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT FOR A GOOD PLAYOFF RUN. THERE IS ABOUT 7 GAMES LEFT.

 FLYERS - KINDA SUCKS THAT THEY MAY HAVE A WINNING RECORD AT THE END OF THE SEASON AND NOT MAKE THE PLAYOFFS. THEY ARE MATHEMATICALLY ELIMINATED WITH ABOUT 5 GAMES LEFT.

 WE WATCHED AT LEAST 4 EPISODES OF EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND. THE WRITING WAS VERY GOOD.

 OFF TO BED AND WAKE UP AT LEAST 10 TIMES.......BLOW.

  TUESDAY      5 - 4 - 21

  JUST FEELS LIKE I AM SPINNING MY WHEELS WITH PROJECTS AND THINGS GETTING DONE.

  WALK THE PUP OUTSIDE AND PLAY WITH HER. SHE CHASES THE BALL AND RETURNS IT VERY WELL........UNTIL SHE GETS TIRED. THAN I THROW IT AND SHE LOOKS AT ME LIKE " I'M DONE , YOU GET IT. "

 BEAUTIFUL DAY TO WEED WHACK THE ENTIRE PROPERTY AND PLACE TRASHCANS OUT.

 FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE - PICKED UP ANOTHER CARPET SHAMPOOER VACUUM. FREE IN VILLANOVA.

 UPDATED OUR MOUNTAIN HOUSE LEASE.

 LAND PHONES HAVE BEEN DOWN FOR 24 HOURS. 

 UPDATE ( WEDNESDAY MORNING ) - I CALLED FIOS VERIZON AND ASKED FOR TECH SUPPORT. OUR PHONES ARE DOWN. I UNPLUGGED ALL PHONES , ROUTERS , O.T.C. MACHINE WITH NO SUCCESS. THE TECH MADE A GOOD CALL THAT I SHOULD OF KNOWN....GO TO ROUTER AND PLUG IN A PHONE DIRECTLY TO IT. THE DIAL TONE WORKED AND NOW I KNOW IT IS INTERNAL.

 CONTINUED - UP AND DOWN STEPS FROM BASEMENT TO 2ND FLOOR 20 TIMES. I AM FREAKING OUT. I DECIDE TO USE ONE AND ONLY ONE PHONE TO TEST EVERY SINGLE DAMN FUCKING JACK IN THE HOUSE. IT ENDS UP A BAD SPLITTER. I REMOVED THE SPLITTER AND RE-PLUGGED EVERY DAMN PHONE AND JACK BACK IN ON ALL LEVELS. THE PHONES ARE BACK WORKING AND I CANCELLED OUR WORK TICKET.

 ELDEST IS PRETTY HAPPY. SHE GETS TAX RETURN BACK , UNEMPLOYMENT CHECK , AND HITS BINGO AGAIN AT A LOCAL PUB. SHE BOUGHT OVER $100 OF FOOD FOR DINNER. THERE HAD TO BE 10 BAGS OF FOOD. I THOUGHT SHE WAS FEEDING THE NEIGHBORHOOD. THE ONLY THING.........NOT SHARING AT ALL. THIS IS AN ITALIAN CODE BROKEN. SEEMS LIKE EVERY MONTH WE THROW BAD FOOD OUT SITTING FOR WEEKS IN THE FRIDGE UPSTAIRS. 

 PHILLIES WITH THEIR 6TH CONSECUTIVE ONE RUN GAME. THEY WON 2 GAMES IN A ROW FOR THE FIRST TIME THIS SEASON.

 FLYERS GET SMOKED.

 UNION TIES IN 2ND LEG. NO IDEA WHAT THAT MEANS. I THINK THEY MOVE ON IN THE PLAYOFFS.

 BROTHER CALLS AND STOPS BY. I HOOK HIM UP WITH A PIECE OF WOOD AND SOME DRYWALL. LET'S JUST CALL IT CHRIS'S HARDWARE STORE.

 CALL ANOTHER BROTHER TO GIVE CONDOLENCES TO HIS DOG WHO THEY PUT DOWN. THE DOG HAD A GREAT LIFE OF 17 1/2 YEARS. I AM ACTUALLY ENVIOUS OF THAT BECAUSE I KNOW THE PAIN OF LOSING A PET. THEY BRING SO MUCH INCREDIBLE JOY EACH DAY.

 ANOTHER BROTHER CALLS TO CHECK UP.

 I ORDERED ( AND DIDN'T LIKE IT ) $150 OF PARTS FOR MY SNOW BLOWER. IT IS TOO COMPLICATED FOR ME TO REPLACE SO I THINK I HAVE TO ASK THE UBER TECH TO GET A RIDE HERE AGAIN.

 HAD A MICROWAVE SET UP FOR PICK-UP VIA FB MARKETPLACE. I EMAILED TWICE  , SET UP A TIME FOR TOMORROW MORNING AND.......HE SAYS SOMEONE GOT IT LAST NIGHT. I FUCKING HATE OUR WORLD.

 POSTED A C-PAP MACHINE FOR SALE. I WILL GIVE IT A WEEK OR SO. IF NOTHING , I WILL THROW OUT EVERYTHING I PICKED UP EXCEPT BACK UP PARTS FOR ME AND MAYBE SOME EXTRA MACHINES FOR TRAVELING.

   THIS IS HOW I END MY NIGHT :

    I SIT ON THE TOILET AND DO MY BOWEL MOVEMENT THING. IT'S A MOMENT OF PEACE WE ALL NEED. A TIME WHERE WE REFLECT ON THE DAY AND LIFE OVERALL. THE ONLY TIME NO ONE IS CALLING OR TEXTING OR TALKING TO YOU. A FORM OF SOLITUDE I GUESS. WELL , I MUST HAVE  A LITTLE COCK BECAUSE WHEN I WENT TO PEE SITTING DOWN URINE SHOT OUT BETWEEN THE TOP OF THE BOWL AND UNDER THE SEAT WHERE MY ASS IS. PEE FIRES OUT LIKE A GARDEN HOSE AND HITS MY LEG , SPLATTERS MY BOXERS , PINGS OFF THE TRASH CAN , AND SPLASHES THE VANITY DOOR. I SWEAR GOD HAS A REALLY SICK SENSE OF HUMOR SOMETIMES. I KNOW HE IS UP THERE SAYING , " HEY ANGELS , LUKE , MARY ,  JOSEPH......COME OVER HERE FOR A SECOND. WATCH THIS , I'M GONNA MAKE FATTY FAT CHRIS AND HIS LITTLE PENIS PEE ALL OVER THE PLACE. IT WILL BE HILARIOUS. MAN , I LOVE MESSING WITH HIM. "

 WEDNESDAY    5 - 5 - 21

 A FRIEND STOPS OVER TO WALK WITH WHEELS AND CHILL. THIS GIRL IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES AND COULD HAVE FUN IN A CLOSET. SHE ALWAYS HAS A POSITIVE ATTITUDE EVEN THOUGH SHE HAS MORE SERIOUS STUFF ON HER PLATE THAN ANYONE I KNOW. SHE IS A JOY TO BE AROUND. SHE ALSO WANTS ME TO FIND STUFF FOR HER SON AND HIS NEW APARTMENT ON...........FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE.

 I REALLY NEED TO HEAD EAST. I'M SERIOUS. I AM NOT MESSING AROUND ANYMORE. MY DOG WANTS IT TOO.

 ELDEST HAS CLOSE TO 10K. THIS IS NOT A GOOD THING. SHE WENT TO GIANT TO PURCHASE A FEMININE PRODUCT. WHEN SHE RETURNED SHE NEEDED HELP BY BOTH WHEELS AND I TO UNLOAD THE CAR.

 PHILLIES FOR THE 7TH GAME IN A ROW HAVE A ONE RUN GAME. THEY WIN AGAIN AFTER ALMOST BLOWING A 5 - 0 LEAD. A GOOD WIN 5 - 4. ( ANY WIN IS GOOD THOUGH ). THE WHOLE DIVISION IS UNDER .500 EXCEPT THE PHILLIES WHO JUST WENT OVER .500 WITH THIS WIN.

 76ERS WITH ANOTHER SOLID WIN ( OVER A BAD TEAM THOUGH ). THEY HAVE A CHANCE OF HOLDING THE NUMBER #1 SEED FOR THE PLAYOFFS.

 TRIED TO UPDATE MY UNEMPLOYMENT PORTAL. THIS WAS A COMPLETE FAILURE FOR THE 5TH TIME.

 C-PAP SALE GOT ONE INTEREST. I WAS GOING TO GIVE IT 2 WEEKS BUT IN 2 DAYS SOMEONE SHOWED INTEREST. MOST OF THESE ARE PEOPLE DRUNK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT AND FORGET ABOUT EMAILING ME. IN THE MORNING THEY HAVE NO INTEREST ANYMORE. SO.....I AM NOT TOO HYPED THIS WILL GO THROUGH AS A SALE.

 I MOVED BACK AND CLEANED EVERY PIECE OF FURNITURE I MOVED TO GET TO ALL PHONE JACKS YESTERDAY. MAN , WHAT A PAIN IN THE ASS. I WAS SWEATING MY BALLS RIGHT OFF. I CALLED A 2ND TIME TO CANCEL A WORK ORDER FROM FIOS VERIZON. I AM GLAD I FIGURED IT OUT BECAUSE THE BILL WOULD OF EASILY BEEN OVER $200.

 SHOWERING AND SHAVING WAS GLORIOUS. IT HAS BEEN OVER A WEEK AND MY BOXERS WERE MORE PAST RIPE. I HAD TO SHAVE MY HEAD BECAUSE I THINK SEVERAL DIFFERENT SPECIES OF LIFE WERE LIVING THERE.

 FACETIMING IS JUST SO MUCH FUN. EVERY WEDNESDAY WE DO IT. I ALWAYS STAY ON LAST BECAUSE I NEED TO SEE MY YOUNGEST FACE AS LONG AS POSSIBLE.

 WE ALSO FACETIMED WITH OUR ELDEST FRIEND / BARTENDER TOO. SHE CALLS US " MOM " & " DAD ". THIS KID HAS MORE THINGS GOING ON THAN 5 KIDS I KNOW PUT TOGETHER.

 THE RAIN CAME. I DID NOT CHECK THE BASEMENT. I REALLY DID NOT WANT TO KNOW. I DID SWEEP THE OUTSIDE STEP AREA AND POURED DRAIN-O DOWN THE SPILL DRAIN LAST WEEK.

 I SWEAR SOME DAY I WILL JUST TURN ON A PRINTER , CLICK " PRINT " , AND IT WILL WORK. FOUR TIMES I PRINTED OUT SOME PAPERWORK AND IT WORKED PERFECT. JUST ONE PROBLEM , IT WAS PRINTING THE FIRST PAGE ONLY OUT OF 2 DOCUMENTS NEEDED. I PRINTED ALL 4 PAGES AGAIN 4 TIMES MORE. SAME RESULT....ONLY ONE PAGE OF THE TWO PAGES WAS PRINTING. IT WAS THAN I REALIZED I HAD THE SETTING ON " PRINT BOTH SIDES "......DOH.

 SPEAKING OF " DOH ". MY ELDEST AND I WATCH THE SIMPSONS MOVIE WHERE THEY PUT THE DOME OVER THE TOWN OF SPRINGFIELD. I DID NOT REALIZE THERE IS A SHITLOAD OF FUNNY ONE LINERS.

 ALL OF US DURING THE DAY AND NIGHT PLAY WITH THE PUP. SHE BRINGS SO MUCH JOY INTO THIS HOUSEHOLD. DOGS ARE SO CALMING AND FUN. THEY ARE JUST NON-STOP ENTERTAINMENT.

 I PLACE A BEER AND LIQUOR ORDER FOR THE 2ND STRAIGHT WEEK IN A ROW. IT HAS BEEN OVER 1 YEAR SINCE I HAVE DONE THIS.

 LIVE SHOWS THIS WEEKEND AND OPEN SUNDAY.

 FRIDAY - REMEDY - A BLACK CROWE TRIBUTE BAND.

   ( $10 COVER AND 20-30 PEOPLE LIMIT )

 SATURDAY - STARSKREAM ( STREAMING TOO )

    ( $10 COVER AND 20-30 PEOPLE LIMIT )

 SUNDAY - OPEN AT 6PM.

  THIS IS WHY THE NAIL WAS SAVED - THE BAND STARSKREAM WROTE THIS ON FACEBOOK AND OTHER SOCIAL MEDIA OUTLETS -

   " WE CAN SINCERELY ADVISE THAT NO VENUE HAS EVER BEEN MORE ACCOMMODATING AND SUPPORTIVE OF NEW AND SEASONED BANDS ALIKE AS THE NAIL HAS BEEN FOR DECADES ".

  SORRY , I GET EMOTIONAL ABOUT HOW THE NAIL WAS BROUGHT OUT OF THE COVID GUTTER. NOW , WE NEED TO REHABILITATE HER BACK TO FULL STRENGTH.

 PIZZA FOR DINNER AND A DISNEY MOVIE.....THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG. ( MY ELDEST WANTED TO WATCH IT )

 TRIED TO APPLY FOR A GRANT. I FAILED MISERABLY AGAIN. I DO HAVE TO THANK OUR ACCOUNTANT'S OFFICE IN SENDING OUR 2020 TAX RETURNS SO QUICKLY.

 OFF TO BED. IT GOT COLD.

  THURSDAY      5 - 6 - 21

 NOW THAT IS A SMALL WORLD....REALLY SMALL.

 TOOK A RIDE TO CENTER CITY AND PICKED UP MY YOUNGEST. WE THAN TOOK CRAZY MAZE ( OUR PUP ) TO THE DOG PARK. IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL MORNING AND SHE HAD AN ABSOLUTE BLAST. IT IS PURE JOY AND ENTERTAINMENT TO WATCH THESE DOGS PLAY.

 WE STOP AT WAWA FOR BREAKFAST , LIQUOR STORE FOR AN ORDER  PICK-UP , AND THE NAIL TO DROP THE SUPPLIES OFF.

 OH , THERE WAS A TON OF STREET WORKERS OUT FRONT OF THE NAIL.....WITH A COP DIRECTING TRAFFIC.

 BACK HOME FOR A BIT. THAN ALL OF US TAKE A RIDE TO BROOKHAVEN. A SHORT RIDE OF ABOUT 20 MINUTES. IT WAS TIME FOR OUR 2ND VACCINATION.

 THE BLUE ROUTE IN THE OTHER DIRECTION ( THANK GOODNESS ) WAS BACKED UP AND STOPPED FOR AT LEAST 10 MILES. YEP , NO WAY IN HELL WE WERE TAKING THE BLUE ROUTE BACK HOME.

  IT'S OFFICIAL , OUR FAMILY IS NOW FULLY VACCINATED. IT WAS EASY AND QUICK. OF COURSE , I HAVE TO MESS AROUND. OUR ELDEST GOES FIRST AND WHILE I AM WAITING IN LINE SHE IS SITTING IN A CHAIR WAITING FOR HER 2ND DOSE. FROM ABOUT 75 FEET AWAY I SAY , " J  ? IS THAT YOU ? " SHE ROLLS HERE EYES AND GIVES ME THE HAND ACROSS THE THROAT SIGN. I RAISE MY GLASSES ABOVE MY EYES TO SIMULATE A BETTER LOOK. I MOUTH , " J ? IS THAT REALLY YOU ? " SHE REALLY GIVES ME THE SIGN ACROSS THE NECK TO STOP.  THE DOCTOR GIGGLES AND SO DOES SHE. THE DOCTOR SAYS , " MY DAD USE TO EMBARRASS ME ALL THE TIME TOO. "

 A NICE LADY TAKES OUR PAPERWORK. I AM WITH MY YOUNGEST AND THE LADY SAYS , " OKAY , SO YOU ARE N ? ( MY DAUGHTER'S NAME ) " I REPLY , " YES , YES I AM.....AND I HAVE BEEN CALLED WORSE. " THE WOMAN AND MY KID LAUGH.

 WE WAIT 7 OF THE SUGGESTED 15 MINUTE POST SHOT. I AM TOO IMPATIENT AND WE ROLL OUT. THE GAME PLAN WAS TO HANG TOGETHER FOR 24 HOURS AND SEE IF ANY ONE OF US HAS A REACTION.

 BACK HOME FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE STRIKES AGAIN. THIS TIME I SOLD A C-PAP MACHINE FOR A $100 ( THAT I GOT FOR FREE ). THE GUY WAS LOCAL AND HE BROUGHT HIS SON. IT ENDS UP THE SON KNEW OUR HOUSE AND  YOUNGEST. WE ALL TALKED ON OUR PATIO AND THEY LOVED OUR PUP. WE TALK SHOP FOR ABOUT 15 MINUTES AND THEY ROLL OUT. THIRTY MINUTES LATER HE TEXTED AND THANKED ME....AND SAID HE REALLY LIKED OUR 4 LEGGED FRIEND.

 WE GO INSIDE AND MY YOUNGEST SAYS , " THE SON IS REALLY CREEPY. IN HIGH SCHOOL HE KINDA STALKED ME. " NOT 5 MINUTES LATER ONE OF HER SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS PING. IT WAS THE SON SAYING SOMETHING REALLY STUPID. WE ALL LAUGHED AS OUR YOUNGEST READ IT.  TRULY A SMALL WORLD HERE SINCE THIS GUY CONTACTED ME VIA CRAIGSLIST.

 A VERY NICE BERTUCCI'S DINNER OUTSIDE ON THE PATIO. WELP , THAT $100 IS GONE. I WAS OKAY WITH THAT.

 MY YOUNGEST HELPED ME PICK-UP ALL THE C-PAP MACHINES AND ACCESSORIES SO I OFFERED 10% OF ANY SALES. MY DAD WAS IN THE CAR AND SAYS SHE DESERVES 20%. SO , OUT OF THE $100 SALE I GAVE OUR YOUNGEST $20. I WAS OKAY WITH THIS TOO.

  WE WATCH THE PHILLIES WIN AGAIN. IT WAS ALMOST ANOTHER 1 RUN GAME WHICH WOULD OF SET A RECORD. A VERY NERVOUS 9TH INNING BUT THE PHILLIES HANG FOR A  2 - 0 WIN AND A 4 GAME SWEEP OF THE BREWERS.

 THE GAME PLAN WAS TO STAY TOGETHER JUST TO BE ON THE CAUTIOUS SIDE. WE WATCH AN ANIMATED MOVIE CALLED THE MITCHELLS VS THE MACHINES.  SOME ANIMATIONS REALLY HIT HOME WITH FAMILY , REALITY , AND FICTION. THIS MOVIE WAS OKAY TO GOOD.

 WE WATCH A SUGGESTED TV SERIES FROM A FAMILY MEMBER CALLED UPLOAD. WE WATCHED 2 EPISODES AND SO FAR I HAVE TO SAY IT IS VERY GOOD.

 ELDEST GOES OUT FOR FOOD AND VISITS A FRIEND BUT RETURNS PRETTY QUICKLY. AGAIN , OUR GAME PLAN WAS TO STAY TOGETHER FOR 24 HOURS JUST IN CASE ONE OF US HAD A REACTION.

 ALL OF US DRANK PLENTY OF WATER AND EVEN MADE A GAME OF IT DURING THE MOVIE.

  OFF TO BED AROUND 11PMISH.

 UPDATE - AS OF 9AM FRIDAY MORNING BOTH WHEELS AND I HAVE NO SIDE EFFECTS. WE WILL UPDATE WHEN THE KIDS GET UP.

  FRIDAY       5 - 7 - 21

 WAIT .......WHAT ?  EVERY DAY I DIRECTLY EXPERIENCE NEWS WORTHY EVENTS. IT REALLY IS QUITE AMAZING.

 WHEELS DRIVES YOUNGEST TO CENTER CITY SO OUR KID COULD SIGN HER FIRST APARTMENT LEASE.   WE ALSO FILLED THE VAN WITH STUFF TO BE TAKEN TO THE APARTMENT. THE 4 GIRLS LOVED THE FOOSBALL GAME.

 SATURDAY - DELAWARE COUNTY IS OFFERING FREE JOHNSON AND JOHNSON VACCINATION SHOTS AT DELAWARE COMMUNITY COLLEGE ON SATURDAY BETWEEN 9AM TO 1PM. NO APPOINTMENTS NECESSARY. THIS IS THE ONE AND DONE SHOT. MAN.....WISH I KNEW THIS EARLIER.

 I GET SOME PROJECTS DONE :

 - ON THE ROOF I REMOVE PINE NEEDLES FROM 2 ROOF LINES THAT MEET. I THINK IT IS CALLED A " HIP ". ANYWAY , PINE NEEDLES BUILD UP BIG TIME AND NEED TO BE CLEARED EACH YEAR. ME ON A ROOF = NO-NO.

 - I TAKE MEASUREMENTS FOR A 3RD WINDOW TO RECEIVE A SHUDDER. IT IS MUCH SMALLER. I CUT A PLASTIC SHUDDER. OF COURSE MY CIRCULAR SAW CRACKS IT. I HAD WHEELS HELP ME CUT A 2ND ONE AND I LET THE BLADE GO THROUGH REALLY REALLY SLOW......IT WORKED PERFECT.  LET ME TELL YOU MANEUVERING AROUND A HIGH ROOF IS REALLY NOT MEANT FOR FAT PEOPLE.

 - PUT THE LADDER AWAY AND THAN REALIZE I NEED IT ONE MORE TIME. ON THE SIDE OF OUR HOUSE A GUTTER GUARD BLEW LOOSE AND TO THE GROUND. I CLIMBED ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP ON MY 40' LADDER AND RE-INSTALLED IT ALONG WITH CLEANING OUT SOME GUNK.

 - A FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE SELLER CONTACTS ME FOR A FREE TV AND ROKU WITH AN HDMI CORD. SHE IS LOCATED JUST 12 MINUTES FORM OUR KID'S COLLEGE. UNFORTUNATELY , WHEELS AND OUR YOUNGEST WERE IN THE BALA CYNWYD AREA AND THE DEAL COULD NOT BE DONE. DAMN IT !!! . I SAY A ROKU FOR EVERY TV IN THE HOUSE !!

 - THE DOG DIGS HOLES IN OUR YARD. I FILLED SOME DANGEROUS ONES IN WITH MULCH AND SOME PLANTS I WEEDED OUT OF OUR GARAGE SIDE GARDEN.

 - WHEELS AND I FILL OUT SOME DOCUMENTS FOR DELCO STRONG. I SWEAR TO CHRIST I RATHER BUILD A HOUSE FROM SCRATCH THAN TRY TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO ADD INFORMATION TO AN EMAIL QUESTIONNAIRE AND SIGN IT.

  I GET A CALL AND ROLL TO THE NAIL FOR A BEER DELIVERY. IT WAS THE LARGEST DELIVERY IN OVER 1+ YEARS. I STOCKED BEER , SODA , AND LIQUOR FOR OVER 2 HOURS.

 NEW BEERS FROM CONSHOHOCKEN BREWING COMPANY. I SEND A PICTURE OF THE 3 NEW BEERS IN OUR FRIDGE TO GLEN MACNOW OF WYSP 94.1 SPORTS TALK. HE POSTS IT ON HIS FACEBOOK PAGE.....IN UNDER 1 HOUR IT HAD OVER 200 LIKES AND COMMENTS. PEOPLE STARTED TELLING STORIES OF WHEN THEY WENT TO THE NAIL IN THEIR HEYDAY. IT WAS REALLY COOL TO SEE. ONE STORY WAS FROM 51 YEARS AGO !!

 STOP AT A GAS STATION FOR FUEL AND A BANK TO GET EXTRA 5'S AND 10'S.

 BACK HOME WE WATCH 3 MORE EPISODES OF UPLOAD. IT WAS VERY GOOD.

 YOUNGEST AND I HEAD TO THE NAIL TO PREP FOR THE NIGHT. WE LOAD IN THE 8 PIECE BAND. THE MUSIC WAS EXCELLENT TONIGHT.  IT WAS OUR YOUNGEST FIRST SOLO SHIFT AND SHE WAS ABOVE EXCELLENT.

 THE NIGHT WAS SO MUCH FUN. TEARS BROUGHT TO MY EYES AS FRIENDS AND FANS ENJOYED THE MUSIC. IT WAS SO NICE TO SEE PEOPLE SINGING AND DANCING TO THEIR SONGS. I AM LIMITING IT TO 20-30 PEOPLE AND THAT IS WHAT WE DID TONIGHT WITH THE SOLO BAND.  THE FEMALE BACK UP SINGERS IN THIS 8 PIECE BAND WERE REALLY GOOD. THE WHOLE BAND WAS GOOD AND I TALKED TO THEM ALL NIGHT .........ALONG WITH PATRONS TOO.

  I TEXT OUR GROUP FAMILY A MESSAGE , " I OVERHEAR 2 GUYS TALKING OUTSIDE. ONE GUY SAYS TO HIS FRIEND , " I LOVE THIS PLACE !!!! IT IS SOOOOOOOO CUTE. NOW THERE IS AN ADJECTIVE NEVER USED TO DESCRIBE THE NAIL."

 I ADORE THE BARTENDER TONIGHT. I JUST SHOOK MY HEAD AS SHE RAN AND HELPED FANS AND FRIENDS. SHE IS SO COOL. PEOPLE WERE SPECIFICALLY SAYING GOOD BYE TO HER AND THANKING HER AT THE END OF THE NIGHT. THE BAND ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS WOULD SAY ON THE MICROPHONE , " DON'T FORGET TO TIP OUR  BARTENDER N. !!! "

 BY MIDNIGHT WE WERE DONE. I THOUGHT IT WAS SUPER COOL OUR ELDEST SHOWED UP TO MAKE SURE HER LITTLE SISTER WAS OKAY ON HER FIRST SOLO SHIFT. SHE BROUGHT FRIENDS AND WE PLAYED A PRANK. WE WERE OUTSIDE AND I TOLD THE FRIENDS , " I LIKE YOU TO ORDER CRAZY NON-EXISTING DRINKS.  MY ELDEST AND I WILL STAY AWAY WHEN YOU DO THIS. I WANT TO SEE THE PANIC ON HER FACE ". THE 3 FRIENDS  WENT INSIDE AND I AM WATCHING FROM OUTSIDE THROUGH THE FRONT DOOR. THEY ORDER , " A 7/11 , A TRAIN STATION SPECIAL , AND A GOOD & PLENTY DRINK ". THESE ARE ALL FICTITIOUS. I SEE MY ELDEST HIDING IN THE CORNER WHILE I AM HIDING OUTSIDE. OUR YOUNGEST / BARTENDER HAS NO HELP WITH THESE " DRINK " ORDERS. THE CAT IS LET OUT OF THE BAG AND MY YOUNGEST WALKS UP TO ME GIGGLING AND SAYS , " NO COOL MAN.....NOT COOL. "WE LAUGHED AND I ADORE HER.

 PHILLIES , FLYERS , AND 76ERS ALL WITH VERY GOOD WINS. ( THE 76ERS MOST OF ALL )

 NOW MY NIGHT STARTS AS " HOLLYWOOD " ENTERS. THIS EQUALS DRINKING. BY MIDNIGHT WE HAD THE BANDS LOADED AND GONE AND EVERYONE OUT. I ALLOWED MY YOUNGEST TO HEAD HOME WITH HER SISTER AND I HUNG OUT WITH HOLLYWOOD. LET ME TELL YOU THIS GUY HAS PHENOMENAL STORIES AND REMEMBERS EVENTS AND EXPERIENCES FROM DECADES AGO. HE HAS MET CELEBRITIES AND MORE......ALL GREAT STORIES. I HAD AN ABSOLUTE BLAST CHILLING WITH HIM.....TO AFTER 2AM.

 OH , " HOLLYWOOD " DROPS A BOMB ON ME AND SAYS , " BY THE WAY ,  DO YOU HAVE A BASE AMP HERE FROM OUR SHOW LAST FRIDAY ?  I REPLY , " YES , IT'S RIGHT HERE IN OUR HALLWAY. " HE RESPONDS ( NONCHALANTLY ) , ' OH OKAY COOL. THAT 'S OUR BASE PLAYER'S AMP WHO DIED THAT NIGHT. " I REPLY , " HOLY SHIT !! ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME ?!! " APPARENTLY HE OVERDOSED FOR THE 4TH TIME USING HEROINE.

 WE TALK MORE AND DECIDE TO ROLL OUT.

 I DRIVE UP TO OUR LOCAL PUB AND STOP AT A TRAFFIC LIGHT. I SEE ALL KINDS OF COP CARS.....AND MY ELDEST AND HER FRIENDS. SHE WALKS INTO THE STREET AND TELLS ME THERE WAS A FIGHT AND THEY WERE BEING INTERVIEWED. I TAKE A PICTURE OF ALL THE COP CARS AND TEXT IT TO HOLLYWOOD WITH THE MESSAGE , " LOOKS LIKE WE MISSED SOME FUN " HE REPLIES , " DAAAAAAANG THE ONE TIME ".

 I HEAD HOME AND PRETTY MUCH GO RIGHT TO BED. TWENTY MINUTES LATER I HEAR OUR ELDEST AND FRIENDS HEAD TO OUR BASEMENT. IT'S LIKE THE AFTER HOUR CLUB.

  SATURDAY       5 - 8 - 21

 ALL DAY IT FELT LIKE A SUNDAY.....IT WAS A VERY LONG DAY.

 START MORNING CUTTING THE LAWN WITH THE RIDING MOWER AND SELF PROPELLED MOWER. I MOWED A RENTAL PROPERTY TOO. I ALSO DID A HARD LEAF BLOW.  OUR GRASS IS THE FASTEST GROWING PLANTS I EVER SEEN. IT SEEMS LIKE I AM CUTTING OUR LAWN EVERY 3 DAYS.

 I WILL NOT GIVE TO0 MUCH IN THIS STORY BUT OUR ELDEST WAS NOT FEELING GOOD THIS MORNING WHILE SITTING ON THE PATIO. EVERY TIME I RODE BY HER ON THE RIDING MOWER I GAVE A " LOOK ". SHE GIGGLED BETWEEN THE PAIN OF NOT FEELING WELL.

 MY SNOW BLOWER PARTS CAME IN. I HAVE TO GIVE IT TO AMAZON. THEY ARE PRETTY DAMN GOOD WITH THE DELIVERIES LATELY.

 SHOWER , SHAVE , AND THE WHOLE FAMILY HEADS OUT FOR A LUNCHEON AT PAXON HOLLOW GOLF COURSE. ANTHONY'S RESTAURANT HAS MOVED THERE. WE PICK UP MY PARENTS AND IT WAS WONDERFUL. WE MEET 2 OTHER BROTHERS AND SIT OUTSIDE OVERLOOKING THE 9TH AND 18TH GREENS.  AGAIN....SO COOL. THEY EVEN SET UP 3 HEATERS FOR THE KIDS AND MY PARENTS. I TOTALLY ENJOYED MAKING JOKES AND MAKING MY SISTER-IN-LAW LAUGH. IT REALLY WAS NICE TO SEE EVERYONE. EVEN BETTER......ONE BROTHER FOOTED THE BILL......NICE.

 WHEN LEAVING I SAW A BAND MEMBER.

 DROP OFF PARENTS AND HEAD HOME. IT WAS SUCH A NICE GET TOGETHER.

 I AM TIRED BUT WE LOAD UP THE FULL SIZE SOFA AND SOME OTHER LITTLE THINGS. WE DRIVE OUR YOUNGEST BACK TO COLLEGE. I TAKE A NAP IN THE BACK ON THE SOFA ( IT WAS VERY COMFY ) AND WHEELS DRIVES. WE STOP AT HER APARTMENT AND DROP OFF EVERYTHING. IT WAS SUPER QUICK AND EASY.

 WE STOP BY OUR KID'S DORM TO DROP HER OFF AND SAY GOODBYES AND HUG....EXTRA HUG. WE SEE SOME PARENTS IN THE STREET WITH THEIR KIDS PLAYING HOCKEY. I REALLY LIKE THIS AREA OF CENTER CITY.

 WHEELS DROPS ME OFF AT THE NAIL AS I PREPARE FOR A LIVE AND LIVE STREAM SHOW. IT WAS REALLY FUN. GOOD MUSIC , THE BAND WAS SUPER COOL , AND SO WERE THE PEOPLE COMING IN. AGAIN , I KEPT IT TO A 20 PERSON LIMIT AND WE SOLD SOME " SAVE THE NAIL TEE SHIRTS ". I CAN NOT STRESS HOW POLITE ALL THE FANS AND BAND MEMBERS WERE TONIGHT.

 HECTOR NERIS JUST DOWN RIGHT BLOWS. ARE YOU KIDDING ME ? HE ( AGAIN ) GIVES UP A HOMERUN WITH 2 OUTS AND 2 STRIKES TO BLOW A 3 - 1 LEAD. THE BULLPEN BLEW TWO MORE LEADS IN EXTRA INNINGS. PHILLIES LOSE A DEVASTATING GAME 8 - 7. THEY EVEN BLEW A 3 RUN LEAD IN THE 12TH....OMG !!!!

  76ERS KEEP WIN STREAK GOING. THIS COULD BE A GOOD THING GOING INTO THE PLAYOFFS.

  FLYERS BLOW AND LOSE IN OVERTIME. OH , FLYERS BLEW 1 - 0 LEAD WITH 39 SECONDS LEFT IN THE GAME.

 I SWEAR PHILLY TEAMS JUST F'N CRUSH OUR HEARTS.

 I HAD SUCH A GREAT TIME AND AGAIN THE BARTENDER WAS EXCELLENT. I TALKED TO SO MANY PEOPLE AND GOT 3 BANDS INTERESTED IN PLAYING HERE FOR THE FUTURE. ONE BAND.....WOULD BE A GAME CHANGER. MORE DETAILS DOWN THE ROAD ON THIS MEGA LOCAL BAND WANTING TO DO A RE-UNION SHOW. OH MAN THIS BE SO MUCH FUN. MY ONLY DECISION WOULD BE........DO I ALLOW A PACKED 200 PERSON NIGHT ?

 BY MIDNIGHT WE ROLL HOME. IT WAS SO NICE TO TALK TO BAND MEMBERS AND FANS OF MUSIC. ONE BLONDE WOMAN CAME IN AND SAID TO ME , "  I HAVE BEEN WAITING 14 MONTHS FOR LIVE FUCKING MUSIC !!! ( SHE PUTS HER HANDS UP IN THE AIR AND GIVES THE METAL HAND SIGN ) ". I LIKED HER BLACK SPANDEX PANTS.

 OVER A 100 PEOPLE SAW THE STREAM TONIGHT. WE ALSO HAD 2 PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHERS IN ATTENDANCE. ONE SAID HE WOULD COPY ME IN ON HIS PICTURES OF THE NIGHT.

 AT HOME I SETTLE IN AND TOTALLY GET THE MUNCHIES. MAN , EATING LATE NIGHT IS NOT GOOD.

 I DREAM OF DRIVING EAST UNTIL I HIT AN OCEAN.

  SUNDAY     5 - 9 - 21

 START MORNING DOING NORMAL THINGS LIKE FACEOOK MARKET PLACE ( MORE FLOOD LIGHT BULBS & A SHOWER HEAD WITH EXTENSION ) , MAILING LETTERS , AND STOPPING AT THE NAIL.

 I DECIDE TO PAINT A SHUTTER IN THE BASEMENT ..........THAN PAINT A BASEMENT WALL , AND THAN PAINT A LAUNDRY SINK. WHY AM I DOING THIS ? WHY ?

 WHEELS MAKES A NICE BRUNCH FOR HER MOM. WE CHILLED FOR ABOUT ONE HOUR. 

 I TAKE A POWER NAP FOR 20 MINUTES. I NEED IT.

  LOAD UP AND HEAD EAST. FIRST I STOP IN CENTER CITY TO PICK UP OUR YOUNGEST.  WE DROP OFF MORE THINGS TO HER APARTMENT AND THAN......TO THE DOG PARK !!!

 MAZE HAS AN ABSOLUTE BLAST !! SHE GOT CHASED BY A HUGE IRISH WOLF HOUND THREE TIMES THE SIZE OF HER. LUCKILY SHE USED QUICKNESS , SPEED , AND AGILITY TO AVOID THE DOG'S PENIS ON HER ASS. I TOOK VIDEOS AND SENT TO OUR FAMILY GROUP TEXT. THE DOGS WERE HILARIOUS.

 WE TAKE A WALK AROUND THE AREA AND CHECK OUT THE LOCAL PARKS AND ACTIVITIES. IT REALLY IS A NICE LOCATION. WE EVEN STOP IN A COFFEE SHOP BUT THEY WERE JUST CLOSING. ME.......I WOULD OF TOOK OUR BUSINESS.

 WE ORDER SHAKE SHACK WHICH I HAVE NEVER HAD HERE IN PHILLY. WE SPLIT EVERYTHING FROM BURGERS TO FRIES TO OREO SHAKE TO NUGGETS. I HAVE TO SAY IT WAS GOOD.

 PARKED OUTSIDE HER DORM WE CHILL. MAZE HAS HER HEAD OUT THE WINDOW AND A YOUNG GIRL WALKS BY. I YELL , " HEY , NOT COOL NOT SAYING HELLO TO MAZE MAN !!! " SHE YELLS , " OH MY GOD THIS MADE MY DAY !!!! "....IT WAS OUR YOUNGEST ROOM MATE. SHE PETS MAZE VIGOROUSLY.

 I ROLL OUT AND HEAD EAST. OH MY GOD I HEADED EAST TO THERE WAS NO MORE ROAD. I ARRIVE AND WALK THE PUP WITH THE COOL OCEAN BREEZE AND SMELLS. MY OCEAN HOME ALWAYS CALLS ME.

 I UNLOAD ( TOTALLY BLOWS BY YOURSELF ) WHILE I ORDER MAZE TO " STAY " INSIDE WHILE THE DOOR IS OPEN. I WAS QUITE SURPRISED SHE STAYED PUT. ONE TIME I HAD TO USE THE FEAR OF GOD VOICE BUT IT WORKED.

 SETTLE IN TURNING THE HEAT ON , DRINKS , AND MAKING MY BED. I FORCE MYSELF TO DO IT NOW BECAUSE MAKING A BED BLOWS LATE NIGHT. THAN I NOTICE A PUNGENT SMELL OF MOLD. WHAT THE HELL COULD THIS BE ? IT TOOK ME SOME TIME BUT I FOUND THE CULPRITS.....LUNCHMEAT. FIVE DIFFERENT KINDS OF DELI WAS LEFT IN THE FRIDGE MEAT DRAWER. LET ME TELL YOU NOT ONE WAS ITS ORIGINAL COLOR.  I BAGGED IT AND THREW IT IN OUR DUMPSTER AND SOAKED THE BIN IN PALMOLIVE AND WD40.

 WIND DOWN WITH SOME DRINKS , INTERNET POKIER , AND WATCH THE PHILLIES GET SMOKED WITH OUR BEST PITCHER NOLA.......BLOW. I FEEL THE PHILLIES STILL HAD TO BE REELING FROM THAT HEART BREAKING GUT WRENCHING NUT PULLING ASS SLAPPING COCK PUNCHING LOSS THE NIGHT BEFORE.......BLOW.

 OFF TO BED AND SLEPT DECENT....WITH THE PUP OF COURSE.

   SUNDAY       5 - 10 - 21

 NOW THAT IS AN OMINOUS SIGHT. WHEN DRIVING TOWARDS THE OCEAN THE ONLY THING YOU SEE IS A 50' WALL OF SAND. IT IS A CROSS BETWEEN THE ALIENS IN THE MOVIE INDEPENDENCE DAY AND A TSUNAMI OCEAN WAVE.

 LOVE SPOTIFY........WE PUT A LARGE PLAY LIST TOGETHER OF BASICALLY ALL HIT SONGS. EVERY SONG IS EXCELLENT. IT MAKES SHAVING AND SHOWERING MORE PLEASANT.

 THE GOOD THING WE WERE THE LAST PEOPLE HERE AT THE CONDO BECAUSE SO MANY PROJECTS WERE DONE. THE BAD THING IS.....I AM FINDING MORE THINGS TO DO.

 I SPENT OVER 3 1/2 HOURS BOOKING BANDS. IT FELT GOOD.

 WALK THE PUP SEVERAL TIMES ON THE MOUND OF SAND OFF TO THE SIDE. IT IS CLIMBABLE BUT NOT WORTH GOING DOWN TO THE BEACH. I DID MESSAGE THE NORTH WILDWOOD BEACH WHEN OUR STREET IS OPENING. I ALSO PICKED UP POOP FROM ANOTHER DOG. YEAH.....IT WAS LAYING THERE FOR 2 DAYS SO WHAT THE HELL.

 OUR WEBSITE COUNTER HAD OVER 2K IN HITS WITHIN A 24 HOUR PERIOD. I AM GUESSING INTEREST WAS PEEKED ABOUT US RE-OPENING.

 OFF TO THE DOG PARK AND I FOUND THAT GOING ONE STREET FURTHER THAN MY USUAL PARKING I CAN WALK UNDER THE BOARDWALK RIGHT TO THE PARK. THIS WAS NICE SINCE I AM FAT AND HATE CLIMBING STEPS. I DECIDED TO DRIVE SINCE....FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE STRUCK AGAIN.

 I WAS CONTACTED AGAIN BY FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE. OUR YOUNGEST WAS LOOKING FOR A BED WITH STORAGE DRAWERS UNDERNEATH. TWO TIMES WE STRUCK OUT BUT THIS TIME WE PICKED IT UP. I THINK IT IS THE BEST ONE YET. IT'S REALLY NICE AND THE MATTRESS IS NEW. ANOTHER BIG SCORE FOR FREE.

 I NOTICED WHEN HAVING A BEER AT THE END THE NIGHT I HAD NO TRUE BEER GLASSES. SO , I PICKED SOME UP VIA FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE......CLOSE TO 70 GLASSES. I THREW ABOUT HALF OUT AND MY ELDEST WOULD LIKE 8. NOW I HAVE TO GO THROUGH ALL THE GLASSES HERE. THE GUY WAS VERY COOL THAT GAVE THEM TO ME.

 WATCHED AN EXCAVATOR MOVE SAND FROM ONE SPOT TO ANOTHER SPOT JUST 15 FEET AWAY. I AM NOT SURE WHY HE WAS DOING THIS PLUS HE WAS MOVING SAND UNDERNEATH IS CONVEYOR TRACKS. I WAS WALKING THE PUP AND WONDERED WHAT I DO IF THIS LARGE MACHINE ROLLED DOWN THE HILL.

 NEIGHBORS INVITE ME TO DINNER. WE VISITED THE SHIP & SHORE RIGHT ON THE BAY. I HAVE TO ADMIT FOOD AND PRICES WERE GOOD.....CHEESE STEAK WITH FRIED ONIONS FOR 5 BUCKS ALONG WITH DRY RUBBED PARMESAN WINGS. IT WAS NICE TO CHILL WITH PEOPLE AGAIN.

 BACK HOME I CHILL AND WATCH SOME TV ALONG WITH WALKING AND PLAYING WITH THE PUP. MAN , I GOT TIRED.

 FLYERS END THE SEASON WITH A GOOD SOLID 4 - 2 WIN AFTER TRAILING 2 - 0. IT'S A SHAME THEY HAD A WINNING RECORD OF 25-23-8 AND MISSED THE PLAYOFFS.

 WATCHED SOME ALASKAN BUSH PEOPLE. SO SAD THE FATHER DIED.

 WATCHED SOME PRETTY FUNNY SKITS WITH IMPRACTICAL JOKERS. IN A KID'S ART CLASS A JOKER WAS PUNISHED BY DRAWING A LARGE RED X ON EVERY STUDENTS PICTURE. IT WAS PAINFUL AND FUNNY TO WATCH.

  TOMORROW.....SOME PUNCH LIST STUFF AND A FIRE INSPECTION.

 OFF TO BED AND DREAMT A FORMER LIVE AT THE NAIL RADIO SHOW HOST COLORED , CUT , AND STYLED MY HAIR IN A CRAZY WAY. SHE COMBED MY HAIR IN ONE DIRECTION THAN 2 INCHES LOWER COMBED THE HAIR IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTIONS. SHE CONTINUED THIS METHOD ON MY WHOLE HEAD. BY TRADE SHE IS A TATTOO ARTIST SO I KNEW SHE WAS PLAYING WITH ME WHEN SHE STARTED LAUGHING. THE REAL DREAM IS ........I HAD HAIR.

  TUESDAY     5 - 11 - 21

 IN 2 FULL DAYS I BOOKED 13 BANDS. KINDA FEELS GOOD.

 FOUND HARDWARE FOR A TABLE FOR OUR YOUNGEST. MAN , I LOOKED FOR THESE PARTS ALL SUNDAY.

 I GOT A VERY NICE 50" FLAT SCREEN TV WITH HDMI PORTS VIA FB MARKET PLACE LAST TIME I WAS HERE. I STORED IT IN THE CLOSET.  I HAD AN EXTRA WALL MOUNT IN MY BASEMENT ( FREE FROM FB MARKETPLACE ) AND BROUGHT IT HERE. TODAY , I SPENT ABOUT 90 MINUTES REMOVING THE SMALL TV AND HANGING THIS LARGER ONE. I AM REALLY HAPPY HOW IT TURNED OUT PLUS.........FOR SOME REASON THE TV REMOTE MATCHED THIS TV.

 BEER GLASSES AND MORE I PLACED IN THE DISHWASHER AND USED HIGH HEAT TO CLEAN THEM. I LET THEM SIT OVER NIGHT TO STEAM AND DRY. TODAY I SPENT ABOUT AN HOUR ORGANIZING ALL THE GLASSES. I WAS SO ANAL I EVEN SPUN THEM SO ALL BEER LABELS FACED OUT. I ALSO TOOK PICTURES TO SEND TO OUR FAMILY GROUP TEXT. SOME WILL STAY HERE , SOME WILL GO TO OUR ELDEST , SOME WILL GO TO OUR YOUNGEST NEW APARTMENT , AND SOME HAVE BEEN TRASHED.

 TRIED BUT FAILED - MY NAIL SHIRT GOT SPLOOGED WITH WHITE PAINT MONTHS AGO. I SOAKED IT IN GASOLINE AND TRIED TO HAND SCRUB IT OUT MONTHS AGO. IT DID NOT WORK. TODAY I TRIED USING A BLACK SHARPIE TO AT LEAST COVER THE WHITE PAINT AND MATCH THE BLACK SHIRT COLOR. THIS FAILED. I WILL USE OMEGA SHARPIE NEXT TIME I AM HOME.

 TOOK THE PUP TO THE DOG PARK......OH.....MY.....GOD. IT REALLY IS A SHOW AND SO FUN TO WATCH. I WISH THE WHOLE WORLD BE LIKE THIS.........ALL DIFFERENT COLORS PLAYING TOGETHER , HAVING FUN , AND SNIFFING EACH OTHER'S BUTTS.  I BLONDE COLLEGE GIRL WITH THE CRIMPLED SWEAT PANTS , BELLY SHOWING , AND TIGHT WHITE FITNESS TOP WOULD BE MY FIRST BUTT TO CHECK OUT.

 I DID WALK THE PUP ON THE BEACH FOR THE FIRST TIME. IT WAS GLORIOUS. IN LESS THAN 10 SECONDS I SAW 2 DOLPHINS. THERE IS SOMETHING SPIRITUAL ABOUT DOLPHINS.

 FIREMAN INSPECTS OUR SMOKE ALARMS.....IN LESS THAN 30 SECONDS. ALL GOOD....NICE. HE LIKED MAZE.

  I SETTLE IN FOR A LITTLE BIT. MY NEIGHBORS TAKE ME TO A NICE HAPPY HOUR AT THE DECK FOR $2 TACO NIGHT. LET ME TELL YOU THE TACOS WERE VERY GOOD AND GOOD SIZE. THEY OFFER CHICKEN OR BEEF ALONG WITH $2 BUD LIGHT DRAFTS. MY NEIGHBORS / FRIENDS KNEW THE CHEF AND A RADIO SHOW DJ WHO JUST HAPPENED TO COME IN. THEY ALSO KNOW EVER SPECIAL ON THE ISLAND.

 MY NEIGHBOR IS A HARDCORE METS FAN. HE SAYS METS FANS ARE NICER THAN PHILLY FANS. I THINK I HAD TO AGREE WITH HIM EVEN THOUGH I HATE WHEN THE MET FANS COME TO OUR HOME GAMES.

 BACK HOME I WALK THE PUP AND PLAY WITH HER. THE DOG IS SUCH A JOY TO BE WITH.

 PHILLIES WITH A NICE WIN.

  76ERS TOTALLY SHIT THE BED. A WIN WOULD OF SECURED 1ST PLACE GOING INTO THE PLAY-OFFS. TOTAL JINX BY THE PLAY BY PLAY ANNOUNCER. HE SAYS , " THE 76ERS ARE THE BEST TEAM IN THE NBA WHEN LEADING AT HALF TIME.........31 - 3. THE ALSO ARE THE BEST TEAM WHEN LOSING AT HALF TIME 10 - 13. WELL , THEY BLEW A DOUBLE DIGIT LEAD.....BLOW.

 I CAN'T BELIEVE I HAVE NOT USED MY ROKU YET.

 I FACEBOOKED MESSAGED THE NORTH WILDWOOD BEACH PATROL AND ASKED THEM WHEN THE SAND REPLENISHMENT WOULD BE DONE. THEY ARE HOPING FOR MEMORIAL DAY. THESE HUGE MOUNDS ARE SO IMPOSING.

 A COUPLE OF NIGHTCAPS , A LITTLE POKER , WALK THE PUP , AND WATCH HOGAN'S HEROES. MAN , SCHULTZ ( THE ACTOR )  WOULD BE FUN TO HAVE A BEER WITH. I AM IN BED BY 10:30PM.

  WEDNESDAY      5 - 12 - 21

 STEPPED UP.........

 WE FOUND OUT OUR CONDO LAWN SERVICE WENT OUT OF BUSINESS. I THINK I KNOW WHY. FOR 3 YEARS WE WERE NEVER CHARGED.

 TODAY I DECIDED TO STEP UP A LITTLE BIT. OUR CONDO'S FRONT WALKWAY IS GRASS AND SOME PARTS WERE OVER 1 FOOT HIGH. I CALLED A FRIEND IN WILDWOOD CREST TO SEE IF SHE COULD LEND ME A LAWN MOWER. SHE IS SUPER COOL AND I DROVE OUT THERE. SHE LENT ME AN ELECTRIC BATTERY PACK LAWN MOWER , EDGER , AND WEED WHACKER. ALL BRAND NEW. WE TALKED FOR AT LEAST 30 MINUTES.

 I RETURN AND EDGE , WHACK , AND CUT OUR FRONT GRASS AREAS. IT IS NOTHING COMPARED TO THE SIZE OF THE PROPERTIES I DO AT HOME. IT WAS DONE SUPER QUICKLY. IT LOOKS 10X BETTER NOW.

 I BROUGHT UP TO THE OWNERS SHOULD WE VOLUNTEER ONCE OR TWICE TO CUT THE LAWN AREAS OURSELVES OR TRY TO GET A LAWN SERVICE AGAIN ?  WE COULD SAVE OVER $900 EACH SEASON. SOME PEOPLE IMMEDIATELY OFFERED TO HELP AND SOME PEOPLE WERE AGAINST IT.   WE GOT A PRICE OF $38 A CUT WHICH TOTALS OVER $900 FOR THE SEASON. IT TAKES ABOUT 3-5 MINUTES TO CUT THE 2 SMALL AREAS. WE WEED , MULCH , AND PLANT FLOWERS IN THE AREA BUT NOT MOW THE GRASS. I THOUGHT IT WAS A GOOD IDEA AND OFFERED TO CUT THE GRASS AREAS WHENEVER I AM HERE. I MEAN IT TAKES 5 MINUTES ? I DID THINK IT BE NICE TO SAY NEXT SEASON , " HEY , OUR DUES THIS YEAR WILL GO DOWN BY ALMOST $1,000....INSTEAD OF STAYING THE SAME OR ALWAYS GOING UP. OH WELL....WE'LL VOTE ON IT. GO TRUMP !!!

 BROUGHT EVERYTHING BACK WITHIN ONE HOUR. IT TOOK LONGER BECAUSE THE BATTERIES NEEDED CHARGING . THEY WERE NOT USED SINCE LAST YEAR. THEY CHARGED QUITE QUICKLY ON ALL 3 TOOLS....MOWER , EDGER , AND WHACKER. AGAIN , I STAYED AT LEAST 30 MINUTES TO HANG OUT.

 SMALL WORLD......MY FRIEND IN WILDWOOD CREST INTRODUCED ME TO HER NIECE. SHE IS A WAITRESS AT THE DECK WHICH I WAS JUST AT 3 DAYS AGO. SHE REMEMBERED ME AND THE 2 FRIENDS I WAS WITH.

 BACK HOME I HAD TO TAKE THE PUP TO THE DOG PARK FOR FUN AND EXERCISE. AGAIN , IT WAS SO FUN. I SENT VIDEOS TO FAMILY.

 BACK HOME I DO SOME MINOR PROJECTS.

 FRONT WALL OF SAND IS NOW LEVELED OFF......STILL HIGH THOUGH.

 WATCHED THE PHILLIES BLOW A LEAD BUT OF ALL PLAYERS ( HATE HIM OR LIKE HIM ) HERRERA HITS A 9TH INNING HOMERUN TO TIE THE GAME. PHILLIES TACKED ON 3 RUNS IN THE 10TH TO WIN.

 A LITTLE POKER , DEADLIEST CATCH , AND PLAYING WITH THE PUP.

 FACETIME WITH THE FAMILY. I REALLY LIKE DOING THIS.

 BURGERS FOR DINNER. THIS IS ALWAYS GOOD. I DO FEEL BAD FOR THE COWS THOUGH. TWO TIMES I TRIED VEGGIE BURGERS AND OH MY GOD DID THEY SUCK ASS.

  THURSDAY      5 - 13 - 21

 I TRULY LOVE BEING HERE.  THERE'S JUST SOMETHING ABOUT THE OCEAN , SAND , AND AIR. PLUS THE WHOLE GIGANTIC MOUND HAS BEEN MOVED TO SEE THE OCEAN NOW....WELL , FROM OUR STREET.

 SHOWER AND SHAVE AND REALLY LIKE USING MY SPOTIFY ACCOUNT ON MY PHONE. I MEAN SHAVING TO JOHNNY CASH'S " A BOY NAMED SUE " IS A GOOD WAY TO START THE DAY.

 WORKED ON MY SLEEP MACHINE. I HAD TO CHANGE A STRAP AND IT WORKED NICELY. COULD BE THE REASON I SLEPT GOOD LATER ON.

 RE-RE-ORGANIZED A CLOSET.

 ORGANIZED ALL MY TOOLS TO PREP FOR LEAVING TOMORROW.

  YOUNGEST AND FRIENDS TRAIN RIDE TO OUR HOUSE AND BORROW OUR VAN FOR THE DAY. THEY GOT HOOKED UP WITH ALOT OF THINGS FOR THEIR NEW APARTMENT.

  I CONTACT THEM AND PLAY A LITTLE MYSTERY PICK-UP VIA FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE. THEY STOP BY A REALLY NICE WOMEN'S HOUSE FOR A STANDING LAMP THAT HAS A BASEBALL SHADE ON TOP. THE WOMEN EVEN OFFERED SOME MORE THINGS. THERE WILL BE MORE THINGS TO COME.

 WATCHED THE PHILLIES GET SMOKED.

 THE 76ERS GET SMOKED TOO. THEY NEED JUST ONE WIN AND STILL CAN'T WIN TO SECURE THE NUMBER 1 SEED. THEY HAVE 2 GAMES LEFT WITH A ONE GAME LEAD. THEY SHOULD BLOW IT.

 HAD SOME FRUIT AND A HAM / CHEESE SANDWICH WITH MUSTARD.

 OFF TO THE DOG PARK ON A BEAUTIFUL DAY. I WALK THE BOARDS AND BEACH WHERE I COULD.  AGAIN , MAZE HAD AN ABSOLUTE BLAST. I SENT VIDEOS AND PICTURES TO FAMILY. AFTER ABOUT 45 MINUTES IT WAS FUN FOR HER. THAN 3 DOGS WERE PLAYING A LITTLE TOO HARD WITH MAZE SO I GOT HER OUTTA THERE. SHE DEFINITELY WANTED OUT AND DID NOT COMPLAIN.

 I ORDER MACK'S PIZZA....WHITE GARLIC CHICKEN. MANY PEOPLE RAVE OVER MACK'S. I THOUGHT IT WAS OKAY TO GOOD BUT NOT AWESOME BEST EVER LIKE PEOPLE REVIEW.

  I DECIDE TO FINALLY HOOK UP MY ROKU......BEST EVER.

 I WATCHED FEAR OF THE WALKING DEAD.......BORDERLINE EXCELLENT. 

 WATCHED ( BELIEVE OR NOT ) FURIOUS 7. I HAD TO UPLOAD THE TV STATION CHANNEL " FX " VIA MY COMPUTER TO MY ROKU. IN LESS THAN 1 MINUTE I HAD IT DONE. I HAVE BEEN WATCHING THE WHOLE SERIES AND ONLY WILL WATCH IT FOR FREE SINCE THE MOVIES ARE PRETTY BAD AND CHEESY. THIS 7TH INSTALLMENT WAS ACTUALLY PRETTY GOOD. ALOT OF CAMEOS FROM BIG STARS WITH A PRETTY GOOD STORYLINE. WHAT WAS SAD IS THE MAIN ACTOR DYING IN REAL LIFE. THEY FINISHED THE MOVIE WITH HIS BROTHER AND USING C.G.I. TECHNOLOGY. A NICE TRIBUTE AT THE END OF THE MOVIE WAS GIVEN MY ACTOR VIN DIESEL.

 LASTLY AT 10:45PN AND VERY LATE FOR ME I GAVE THE HANDMAID'S TALE A SHOT. I HAD ISSUES WITH THE FIRST SCENE BUT AFTER THAT IT WAS ACTUALLY VERY GOOD. I WILL WATCH ANOTHER EPISODE TOMORROW TO SEE IF IT KEEPS UP THE INTENSITY. IT DID WIN SOME AWARDS.

 TO BED BY 11:45PM. I SLEPT ALL THE WAY TO 7AM ALONG WITH 3 DREAMS.....WHICH I FORGOT.

  FRIDAY       5 - 14 - 21

  SEMI-WATCH 2 EPISODES OF THE HANDMAID'S TALE. AGAIN.....GOOD TO PRETTY GOOD.

  WALK THE PUP IN PICTURE PERFECT WEATHER. IT IS A DAMN SHAME TO LEAVE BUT RENTERS ARE COMING IN.

  CLEAN , PACK , CLEAN , PACK AND IT TOTALLY SUCKS DOING IT BY YOURSELF.

 ON THE ROAD AND GARDEN STATE EXPRESSWAY IS BACKED UP BIG TIME. I TEXT OUR RENTERS TO AVOID IT. THEY THANKED ME.

 TALK TO MY BROTHER. LOOKS LIKE MY PARENTS NEED A PROJECT DONE.

 FIRST STOP WAS IN PROSPECT PARK FOR FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE. I SOLD AN ITEM AND WE MET AT HER FAVORITE ICE CREAM SHOP CALLED RICHMAN'S. SO......I BOUGHT SOME ICE-CREAM. THE YOUNG WOMAN WAS SUPER COOL......AND CUTE. I THINK SHE WANTED MY " CONE ".

 NEXT FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE STOP WAS RIDLEY PARK TO A BEAUTIFUL DEAD END STREET WITH HUGE HOMES. I PURCHASED 6 L.E.D. RECESSED LIGHTS FOR 10 BUCKS. THEY ARE ABOUT $25-$35 EACH.

 ARRIVE HOME TO UNLOAD. WE SETTLE IN AND IT IS ALWAYS GOOD TO BE HOME.

  A NICE DINNER OF LEFTOVER MACK'S PIZZA. AGAIN , IT IS GOOD BUT NOT OFF THE CHARTS DRIVE 7 HOURS GOOD.

 I WATCH AN EPISODE OF THE HANDMAID'S TALE WHILE WHEELS WALKS WITH A FRIEND.

 PHILLIES WITH A NICE COME BACK WIN.

 76ERS CRUSH ONE OF THE WORST TEAM'S IN THE NBA TO CLINCH THE #1 SEED. THIS IS GOOD BUT STATISTICS SHOW.....MAYBE NOT SO GOOD.

 DID HOCKEY PLAYOFF START ?

 WE WATCH 2 EPISODES OF UPLOAD. THEY ARE VERY GOOD.

 FRIENDS RE-UNION 1 HOUR SPECIAL WILL A HAVE A SHIT LOAD OF HUGE STARS MAKING AN APPEARANCE. HBO MAX BEAT OUT PEACOCK FOR STREAMING RIGHTS FOR A MERE 235 MILLION.

 ELDEST HAS BBQ AND FIRE PIT GET TOGETHER. LAST NIGHT A NEIGHBOR COMPLAINED AND CALLED THE POLICE WHO TOLD HER UPON ARRIVING HE HEARD NOTHING......SO THEY HAD ANOTHER ONE TONIGHT.

 I GET UP AT 4:30AM AND SEE 4 PEOPLE AT MY WINDOW. THEY WERE BBQ'ING. I WAS GONG TO SAY SOMETHING BUT DECIDED TO GO BACK TO BED.

 SATURDAY 7PM DRACULA'S MINISKIRT PERFORMS AT THE NAIL WITH MY YOUNGEST AND A NEW BARTENDER......HER ROOM MATE. THIS SHOULD BE CUTE AND FUN TO WATCH.

   SATURDAY      5 - 15 - 21

 I'LL BE YOUR UBER............

  IN THE MORNING I SPRAY PAINT A YELLOW COFFEE TABLE WHITE WHILE WHEELS CLEANS THE GLASS TOP. I ALSO LOADED UP OUR VAN WITH ALL KINDS OF FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE STUFF WE HAVE BEEN GATHERING FOR OUR YOUNGEST AND HER NEW APARTMENT. MY GOAL IS TO FULLY FURNISH A WHOLE HOUSE FOR FREE.

 PLAY WITH THE PUP FOR ABOUT 20 MINUTES.

 OUR SNOW BLOWER TECH ARRIVES FOR THE 2ND TIME. THIS TIME HE WOULD REPLACE 2 SPROCKETS ( HARD TO DO ) AND CHECK OUT A BACK UP LAWN MOWER THAT HASN'T STARTED IN 2 YEARS.

 I RE-INSTALL MY MOTORCYCLE BATTERY THAT HAS BEEN TRICKLE CHARGING IN MY WARM BASEMENT ALL WINTER. IN LESS THAN 3 MINUTES I INSTALL THE BATTERY AND THE BIKE STARTS ON THE FIRST TRY. I LEARNED MY LESSON ONE YEAR AND DID NOT TAKE THE BATTERY OUT DURING A COLD WINTER. IT DIED AND I HAD TO REPLACE IT. FOR 6 OF 7 YEARS NOW I REMOVE THE BATTERY AND IT ALWAYS STARTS RIGHT UP. I HAVE DONE ZERO MAINTENANCE ( EXCEPT CHANGE THE OIL ) IN 7 YEARS. IT STARTS , IT RUNS , ITS PERFECT FOR ME.

 TAKE A RIDE TO THE NAIL TO TEST THE BIKE AND LET IT HEAT UP A BIT. I DO SOME MINOR THINGS AND HEAD BACK HOME. I ENJOYED THE RIDE.

 I DRIVE BY A GAS STATION THAT HAS A NORMAL AMOUNT OF PEOPLE GETTING FUEL. THE NEWS SAYS ALL GAS SUPPLIES ARE RETURNING TO NORMAL FROM THE ALASKAN PIPELINE HACK. I THINK OF 2 THINGS JACK ASS PEOPLE DO THAT PANICKED THINKING NO FUEL WILL BE ATTAINABLE.

 1 - I SAW ON THE NEWS ONE GAS STATION HAD 4 LINES. EACH LINE TO GET TO A PUMP HAD OVER 50 CARS IN LINE. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME ?!?!?!? .....50 FUCKING CARS !!!! IT HAD TO TAKE THEM 8-10 HOURS TO FINALLY GET TO A PUMP WHICH THEY PROBABLY USED A FULL GAS TANK TO DO. JUST LIKE THE FUCKING HOARDERS OF TOILET PAPER....FUCKING ASS HOLE AMERICA RIGHT THERE.

 2 - ONE DOUCHE BAG GUY FILLED HIS JEEP. THAN HE DECIDED TO FILL OVER 30 CONTAINERS TOO. AGAIN , ANOTHER FUCKING HOARDING TOILET PAPER GAS GUZZLING ASS HOLE. OH , HIS JEEP CAUGHT ON FIRE AND IT WAS COMPLETELY TORCHED. KARMA BABY.....KARMA.

  GET WHEELS ON THE ROAD TO PICK UP OUR YOUNGEST AND A ROOM MATE FRIEND. THEY UNLOAD EVERYTHING AT THE NEW APARTMENT AND HEAD BACK HOME.

 I CONSOLIDATE THE GARAGE AND HELP THE TECH HAVING SOME MINOR PROBLEMS WITH THE NEW SPROCKETS. HE TOLD ME HE COULD INSTALL THEM WITH HIS EYES CLOSED. THIS WAS NOT TRUE. I PRINT OUT A SCHEMATIC AND GET A SHARP FILE TO GET THE WHEELS BACK ON. HE HAMMERED THEM TO HARD AND BLUNTED THE ENDS.

 4 HOURS AND THE MECHANIC HAS BOTH THE SNOW BLOWER RUNNING AND THE BACK-UP LAWN MOWER. I AM VERY PLEASED HE TRAVELS TO MY HOUSE ( VIA UBER ) AND FIXES IT RIGHT THERE.  I DO FIND OUT HE IS VERY TALKATIVE , PRETTY COLORFUL WITH LANGUAGE , AND LOST HIS DRIVER'S LICENSE. I KINDA FIGURED THAT. HE TELLS ME UBER WAS $29 HERE BUT DUE TO TRAFFIC THE PRICE LATE AFTERNOON IS NOW $52. THE RIDE WAS FROM MY HOUSE TO PROSPECT PARK. I HAND HIM $150 FOR THE JOB HE DID TODAY AND I SAY , " I'LL TELL YOU WHAT. UBER IS CHARGING YOU $52 AND WILL NOT BE HERE FOR 30 MINUTES. HOW ABOUT I DRIVE YOU HOME FOR $40 ? " HE TOTALLY AGREES.

 OH , ONE MORE THING , IF HE TOOK UBER HE DID NOT HAVE ENOUGH MONEY ON HIS DEBIT CARD SO HE WOULD OF HAD TO WALK 1 MILE TO A 7/11 TO MEET UBER.......ROLLING A LUGGAGE BAG WITH TOOLS.

 I DRIVE HIM TO PROSPECT PARK AND IT TAKE ME 25 MINUTES. HE IS SUPER TALKATIVE BUT I TOLERATE AND ENJOY HIS CRAZY COMPANY. HIS TONGUE HAS NO FILTER. WE ARRIVE AND HE HANDS ME $40. SO......THE WORK HE DID FOR ME IS NOW REDUCED FROM $150 TO $110.

 THE REASON WHY I DRIVE HIM IS I HAD TO BE AT THE NAIL BY 5:30PM. IT WAS 4:30PM SO I FIGURED WHY NOT TAKE A RIDE , MAKE 40 BUCKS , AND THAN GO TO THE NAIL FOR A BAND CALLED DRACULA'S MINISKIRT.

 I PREP FOR THE NIGHT AND WHEELS DROPS OFF MY YOUNGEST AND A FRIEND TO BARTEND FOR THE NIGHT.

 HERE IS THE NIGHT :

 - WHEELS DRIVES TO A COUSIN'S HOUSE AND 7 OF THEM GO OUT TO AN ITALIAN DINNER. I MISSED IT AND WAS KINDA JEALOUS AS MY COUSINS ALWAYS SAY , " WE DON'T WANT CHRISSY TO COME ANYWAY....JUST YOU NANCY !! " THEY EVEN PAID FOR HER. I SWEAR WHEELS IS CLOSER TO MY FAMILY THAN ME.

 - THE BAND LOADS IN AND THEY PERFORM A DOUBLE SET. THE MUSIC WAS GOOD AND THE LEAD SINGER OF THE  BAND THANKED MY DAUGHTER 3 TIMES DURING THE NIGHT FOR " SAVING THE NAIL ". I DID NOT CRY..........MUCH.

 - THE 2 FRIENDS DID AWESOME BARTENDING AND WORKING WITH THE CROWD. IT WAS FUN AS MY YOUNGEST ( ON HER 2ND SHIFT ) WAS TRAINING HER FRIEND ON HER FIRST SHIFT.

 SOME WONDERFUL SURPRISES :

 - " HOLLYWOOD " STOPS BY WITH 70 " SAVE THE NAIL " SHIRTS. HE HAS AN ADORABLE FRIEND MEET HIM HERE. OF COURSE , THE DRINKS FLOW NOW AND IT IS ALWAYS A BLAST TO CHILL WITH HOLLYWOOD.

 - ELDEST STOPS BY WITH 3 FRIENDS AND MY FAVORITE FRIEND/BARTENDER....." M". SHE IS DRESSED IN AN ALL WHITE SKIRT AND SNEAKERS. SHE IS ADORABLE AND TODAY WAS A BIG DAY FOR HER........GRADUATION OF COLLEGE. WE GAVE HER AN ENVELOPE AND WE COULD NOT BE MORE PROUD OF HER. SHE ALWAYS CALLS US " MOM " & " DAD ". I TRULY LOVE THIS GIRL. THE MUSIC , SILLINESS , DANCING , AND FUN CONTINUE. IT WAS AS NORMAL AS IT COULD BE CONSIDERING THIS CRAZY YEAR.

 - NEXT SURPRISE WHEELS STOPS BY. WE ALL CHILL AND IT JUST GOT MORE FUN AS THE NIGHT MOVED ALONG.

 - ONE PATRON / FRIEND BUYS A " ROUND " FOR EVERYONE WHICH I THOUGHT WAS VERY NICE. I BOUGHT HIM A DRINK AND I ALSO ONLY CHARGED HOLLYWOOD ONLY $1.

 I GET EVERY ONE OUT BY 1AM BECAUSE MY 2 BARTENDERS WERE GETTING TIRED. MY ELDEST HEADS TO A BAR DOWN THE STREET AND I THINK HOLLYWOOD MET THEM THERE.

 WE CLOSE AND TABULATE TIPS. I AM SHOCKED HOW MUCH THEY MADE ON A SINGLE BAND SLOW NIGHT.

 WE ROLL HOME AND SETTLE IN MY ROOM TO TALK FOR A BIT. THE KIDS MAKE A BED UPSTAIRS IN THE ART ROOM AND WATCH STREAM SHOWS UPSTAIRS IN THEIR SISTER'S ROOM.

 I SETTLE IN AND GET SOMETHING TO EAT....NOT GOOD AT 1:30AM. I PLAY ONE GAME OF POKER AND " CALL " 2 AGGRESSIVE PLAYERS FOR AN " ALL IN " POT. I HAVE ACE/KING AGAINST 1 PLAYER'S ACE / JACK. I DOMINATE HIM. EVEN BETTER THE OTHER PLAYER HAS 2 / JACK. THIS IS GOOD BECAUSE THEY SHARE JACKS AND THAT IS ONE LESS THAT COULD BE DEALT. THE FLOP........HAS A JACK AND I AM ELIMINATED. I SWEAR I GET ALL THE ( FAKE ) MONEY IN WITH THE BEST HAND AND SO MANY TIMES GET UNLUCKY.

 I FALL ASLEEP VERY QUICKLY AND PROMISE THE KIDS I MAKE HOME MADE BANANA PANCAKES IN THE MORNING.

 OH , ONE MORE THING ......PHILLIES BLOW.

  SUNDAY   5 - 16 - 21

 HMMMMMMM............YOU NEED 2. I SPENT TIME CUTTING AND PAINTING A SHUDDER. I FIGURE I HANG IT TODAY OR TOMORROW WHEN I REALIZED.....I ONLY PREPPED ONE. YEAH.....EACH WINDOW SHOULD HAVE 2 SHUDDERS.  WORSE MEMORY EVER.

 I WROTE A HEARTFELT FACEBOOK COMMENT TO MY FAVORITE DAUGHTER'S FRIEND/BARTENDER. MAN , IT MADE ME WEEP A LITTLE. I TRULY LOVE THIS GIRL. SHE IS AN INSPIRATION TO US ALL REALLY.

 SO , FOR MY YOUNGEST AND HER COLLEGE FRIEND WHO BARTENDED AND SLEPT OVER LAST NIGHT I DECIDE TO MAKE THEM HOME MADE BANANA PANCAKES. PERSONALLY , I WAS JONESING FOR PANCAKES TOO. I FILL UP A BLENDER WITH PANCAKE BATTER AND NOTICE A LEAK. BY THE TIME I MOVED THE CONTAINER TO THE SINK THE BOTTOM FELL OFF. ALL THE BATTER SPLASHED TO THE SINK BOTTOM. COLORFUL LANGUAGE COULD BE HEARD IN A 3 SQUARE MILE DIAMETER.

 I MAKE A 2ND BATCH OF PANCAKES ALONG WITH HASH BROWNS. THE GIRLS COME DOWN AND PLAY WITH THE PUP WHILE I PREP BREAKFAST. I ALSO CHILLED THEIR ALMOND VANILLA MILK DRINKS IN THE FREEZER. I LIKE DOING THIS....ICE COLD MILK IS SO GOOD. I TELL THEM TO COME OVER AND SAY , " JUST PICK ANY PLATE AND SEAT YOU WANT. " THEY WALK OVER AND ONE DISH I SPELLED OUT ( WITH PANCAKES ) THE FRIENDS NAME. THEY GIGGLE AND SAY , "AWWWWW ". THEY LOVE ME.

 I SHOW THEM A REALLY NICE BLACK ONEX GLASS TRIPLE TIER TV STAND. IT IS THEIRS IF THEY WANT IT FOR THEIR NEW APARTMENT. THEY DID AND WE LOADED IT UP. OH, IT WAS FREE OFF FB MARKETPLACE.

 SPEAKING OF FB MARKETPLACE. FOR 10 BUCKS I GOT 6 NEW L.E.D. RECESSED LIGHTS. I INSTALLED THEM IN OUR KITCHEN IN LESS THAN 20 MINUTES......HUGE DIFFERENCE.

 THE CAR IS LOADED AND WHEELS DRIVES ME TO THE NAIL AND THE KIDS TO THEIR APARTMENT TO DROP MORE STUFF OFF AT THEIR APARTMENT AND EVENTUALLY TO THEIR DORM. THEY GOT TO MEET SOME COOL NEIGHBORS.

 THEY ALSO FOUND OUT THEIR ANNUAL PARTY ON THEIR STREET IS MUCH BIGGER THAN THEY THOUGHT. MY COUSIN SAYS HE KNOWS ALOT ABOUT THEIR STREET PARTY AND TOLD US PEOPLE AND BANDS COME FROM ALL OVER TO ATTEND IT. I THINK I WILL BE THERE.

 I HANG AT THE NAIL TO PREP FOR THE NIGHT AND DRIVE HOME OUR CAR LEFT OVER NIGHT.

 AT HOME I SNUGGLE WITH THE PUP AND WATCH AN EPISODE OF THE HANDMAID'S TALE. I GOT SOME ISSUES BUT WILL CONTINUE TO WATCH IT.

 PHILLIES SUCKED US IN.......AGAIN.  DOWN 8 - 0 THEY MAKE A GREAT COMEBACK AND ACTUALLY HAVE A CHANCE TO WIN THE GAME IN THE 9TH INNING WITH 2 MEN ON BASE AND BRYCE HARPER UP TO BAT. GEE......HE STRUCK OUT. WE LOSE 10 - 8.

 FAMILY CALLS AND STOPS BY WITH CHICKEN TO BBQ. WE ATE OUTSIDE ON THE PATIO. IT WAS VERY NICE.

 WE WATCH AMERICAN IDOL AND AN EPISODE OF UPLOAD.

 OFF TO BED ACHING AND TIRED. I AM NOT SURE WHY. I TOOK SOME ADVIL.

   MONDAY       5 - 17 - 21

 WELP......THAT BURNT FAST.

  LOADED UP A SNOW BLOWER FOR MY PARENTS. I HAD THE FLUIDS CHANGED AND CARBURETOR FLUSHED OUT. IT IS WORKING EXCELLENT. I ATTACH MY UTILITY TRAILER AND LOAD THE BLOWER ALONG WITH SOME TRASH. I BROKE DOWN A LARGE BATHROOM VANITY FOR FIRE PIT BURNING. MAN , I LOVE THIS TRAILER......BEST THING I EVER GOT OFF FB MARKETPLACE.

 DRIVE TO THE NAIL AND TOWNSHIP WORKERS ARE BLOCKING OUR DRIVEWAY DOING MAJOR WORK ALONG THE STREET. OH WELL....ANOTHER DAY TO DUMP TRASH. I CONTINUE ON TO MY PARENTS AND DROP OFF THE SNOW BLOWER AND TAKE MEASUREMENTS FOR A NEW FENCE. I CONTACT A BROTHER AND HE IS FLOORED HOW MUCH FENCING THEY NEED. WE WILL REPLACE IT IN A MONTH OR SO. I STAY FOR LUNCH......JUST HAPPEN TO TIME IT THAT WAY.

 ROLL HOME AND BEGIN " ROTATING " MY GARAGE. WINTER STUFF IN THE BACK LIKE SNOW BLOWER AND GENERATOR AND SUMMER STUFF TO THE FRONT LIKE TRAILER AND LAWN MOWERS. I ALSO FIXED A LAWN MOWER HANDLE AND DID SOME MAJOR RE-ORGANIZING AGAIN. IT IS SO NICE TO BE ABLE TO MOVE AROUND THE GARAGE AND KNOW WHERE THINGS ARE.

 THE TOWNSHIP STARTS TO SIFT MULCH FOR OUR AREA. MY BROTHER TIMED IT PERFECT BY CALLING ME. I WILL HOOK HIM UP WITH A LARGE TRAILER LOAD OF FREE DARK BLACK RICH MULCH AND DRIVE IT RIGHT ON HIS LAWN TO DISPERSE AROUND HIS GARDENS AND TREES. MAN , I LOVE THIS TRAILER.

 3 FRIENDS AND FAMILY COME OVER TO WALK WITH WHEELS. I PAUSE MY GARAGE ACTIVITY AND TALK WITH THEM UNTIL WHEELS IS DONE HER MEETING.

 THEY WALK AND I GO BACK TO RE-ORGANIZING THE GARAGE. I EASILY SPENT 2 HOURS IN THERE. IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL DAY AND I HAD SOME MUSIC ON TO PASS THE TIME.

 THE GIRLS RETURN AND WE TALK MORE ON THE PATIO. THEY TIMED IT PERFECTLY AS I JUST FINISHED UP. IT WAS FUN AS ME AND A FRIEND HAD EVERYONE LAUGHING.

 OUR YOUNGEST FACE TIMES ME AND I SHOW HER TO THE FRIENDS AND FAMILY. IT IS JUST TOO FUN MESSING WITH THESE KIDS. I DO IT PRETTY MUCH 24/7. THE KID DID ACTUALLY CALL FOR A REASON. HER CREDIT CARD WAS HACKED.

 A NICE DINNER OUT ON THE PATIO WITH OUR ELDEST. EGG PLANT PARM , CHEESE STEAK , AND A PEPPERONI & MUSHROOM PIZZA.

 WHEELS AND I SETTLE IN AND WATCH THE LAST 2 EPISODES OF SEASON 1 OF UPLOAD. IT WAS GOOD AND LEFT CLIFF HANGERS FOR SEASON 2 WHICH WILL BE RELEASED LATE 2021 OR EARLY 2022.

 ELDEST HAS FRIENDS OVER AGAIN FOR A BBQ AND FIRE PIT. THE 3RD ON EIN A WEEK. SHE HAD ABOUT 6 FRIENDS OVER FOR MUSIC WHICH THEY BRING THEIR OWN SPEAKER AND STAND AND CAN CONTROL IT VIA CELL PHONE ( AMAZING ) , HOT DOGS USING THEIR SMALL PORTABLE GRILL , AND SOME DRINKS. I WAS QUITE HONORED THAT OUR ELDEST ASKED WHEELS AND I TO COME OUT AND JOIN THEM. I MEAN USUALLY 20+ YEAR OLDS WANT NOTHING TO DO WITH THEIR PARENTS. BUT....SHE ALWAYS INVITES US. WHEELS GOES TO BED AND I ACTUALLY FORCED MYSELF TO SAY HELLO AND HAVE A NIGHT CAP WITH THEM. PLUS , MY FAVORITE FRIEND / BARTENDER WAS THERE.

 SPEAKING OF THE FAVORITE FRIEND / BARTENDER NAMED " M ". SHE SAID SHE READ MY FACEBOOK POST ABOUT HER AND CRIED. WE TALKED AND FOUND OUT THE APARTMENT SHE IS RENTING IN JUST 2 WEEKS WAS SOLD. SHE WANTS OUT OF HER PARENTS HOUSE AND NOT BE A BURDEN SO SHE WILL STAY WITH US FOR A MONTH OR SO UNTIL SETTLED IN A LOCAL APARTMENT HOUSE. I REALLY ENJOY HER COMPANY AND FOR THE NEXT MONTH OR SO OUR PATIO DINNERS AND FIRE PIT NIGHTS GOT SO MUCH BETTER.  GOOD CHANCE I WILL HAVE BBQ'S EVERY WEEKEND IF NOT EVERY NIGHT.

 I SAY GOOD NIGHT AND HEAD TO BED WITH THE PUP WHO ALSO WAS ENJOYING THE FIRE PIT NIGHT. I TOOK SOME ADVIL AND FELL ASLEEP PRETTY QUICKLY.

 UP AT 4:30AM I SEE THE FIRE PIT AND FRIENDS ARE STILL GOING ON. OH , THE BATHROOM VANITY I JUST CUT UP 6 HOURS AGO HAS BEEN COMPLETELY USED IN THE FIRE PIT.

 TUESDAY     5 - 18 - 21

  SPENT MORE TIME RE-ARRANGING THINGS IN THE GARAGE. AGAIN....SO NICE TO BE ABLE TO MOVE AROUND WITHOUT CLUTTER.

 ORGANIZED LIGHT BULBS IN OUR BASEMENT. I GOT ABOUT 1/3 THROUGH. MAN I HAVE A LOT OF BULBS. I MADE ROOM ON A SHELF AND FILLED IT INSTANTLY. I STILL HAVE 5 MORE BOXES.

 PAINTED 2ND SHUTTER AND LAUNDRY SINK A 2ND COAT. I HAVE TO ADMIT THE LAUNDRY SINK LOOKS 10X BETTER.

 FAMILY MEMBER ENJOYING OUR CONDO. SHE AND HUSBAND HIT PERFECT WEATHER.

 YOUNGEST WILL FINISH HER SEMESTER TOMORROW. TWO FINALS SHE GOT PERFECT SCORES OF 100. I KNOW THIS IS SUPER HARD AND WE COULD NOT BE MORE PROUD.

 WELP , WHEN YOU HAVE A FRIEND OVER THAT MEANS POOL PLAYING IN THE BASEMENT , MUSIC , AND INVITING MORE FRIENDS.

 A NICE DINNER ON THE PATIO. ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS TO DO. IT'S JUST SO COOL OVERLOOKING OUR GARDENS AND BIRDS BEING PLAYFUL.

 WELP , I WATCHED ANOTHER INSTALLMENT OF THE MOVIE SERIOUS FAST AND FURIOUS. IT STARRED SMOKE SHOW CHARLIZE THERON. GOOD GOD THE THINGS I DO TO HER FOR 20 SECONDS. THERE ARE 3 MORE MOVIES. THIS MOVIE WAS KINDA GOOD. ONE SCENE WAS SO NOT BELIEVABLE BUT PRETTY DAMN COOL TO WATCH. A SUPER WORLD HACKER CONTROLLED 200 CARS TO CHASE A POLITICAL DIPLOMAT. SO PICTURE..........200 CARS , IN UNISON , CHASING A LIMOUSINE IN THE MIDDLE OF NEW YORK AT 80 MPH. TO STOP THE LIMO IN PLACE THEY HAD TONS OF CARS DROPPING FROM THE SKY VIA A PARKING LOT BUILDING. TWO HUNDRED CARS PACKED AROUND AND ON TOP OF THIS ONE LIMOUSINE. I HAVE TO ADMIT THAT WAS VERY COOL. SO HERE IS THE ORDER I WATCHED. THE LAST ONE I WATCHED TONIGHT. 

 1 - THE FAST & THE FURIOUS ( 2001 )

 2 - FAST 2 FURIOUS ( 2003 )

 3 - THE FAST & FURIOUS : TOKYO DRIFT ( 2006 )

 10 - FAST & FURIOUS 9 ( 2021 ) - ** NOT SEE YET ** - APPARENTLY THIS IS PART I

 11 - 10 WILL BE IN PRODUCTION IN 2022  FOR PART II

 I TOLD MY NEPHEW I WATCH THESE MOVIES JUST TO MAKE A CONNECTION. I HAVE TO ADMIT I AM SEMI-ENJOYING THEM. MY KEY IS FREE. I REFUSE TO PAY MONEY FOR THESE SHOWS BUT FIND IT VERY DIFFICULT TO FIND THEM FOR FREE. I SEARCHED ROKU , PAY STATIONS , AND ON-DEMAND ONLY TO FIND THE LAST MOVIE VIA A STANDARD TV COMMERCIAL. IT SAID ON FX , " TUESDAY , WORLD PREMIER OF FATE OF THE FURIOUS " SO , I WROTE IT DOWN AND WATCHED IT TONIGHT.

 WHEELS AND I WATCH THE PHILLIES MAKE A BIG COMEBACK. IT WAS FUN TO SEE ( FOR ONCE ) SINCE USUALLY IT IS OUR TEAM THAT IMPLODES.

 OFF TO BED HEARING LAUGHTER , MUSIC , AND POOL PLAYING IN OUR BASEMENT. YEP.....WE CONTINUE TO BE THE " GO TO " HOUSE.

 WHEELSTOCK - ON THE LAST DAY I AM CLEANING UP WITH ABOUT 10 FRIENDS. I NOTICE SOMETHING VERY PECULIAR. HOLES ARE BEING DUG ON OUR PROPERTY AND TRASH BEING THROWN INTO THEM AND THAN COVERED. I CAN NOT HAVE THIS SO I BEGIN TO UNCOVER THE HOLES. MY FRIENDS HELP ME RE-DIG THE HOLES AND WE DISCOVER SOMETHING HORRIFYING AND GHASTLY. IN 4 HOLES DUG UP WE FIND 8 DEAD BABIES. WE ARE ASTOUNDED AND WE BEGIN TO CRY , SCREAM , AND CALL THE POLICE. IT IS SO SHOCKING AND UPSETTING............dream ends.

 WALKING IN THE WOODS I SEE MY BROTHER-IN-LAW ABOUT 50 YARDS AHEAD OF ME. HE SEEMS TO BE HUNTING SO I KEEP MY DISTANCE. AT ONE POINT HE STOPS , PULLS UP HIS RIFLE TO SHOULDER HEIGHT , AND FIRES. IN THE DISTANCE I HEAR A DEEP GROAN AND GROWL. HE SHOT A BLACK BEAR IN THE FOOT. THE ANIMAL PANICS AND TAKES OFF THROUGH THICK BRUSH. AS THE BEAR DOES THIS IT JUMPS A LARGE BULL MOOSE STANDING IN THE COVER OF THOSE SAME BUSHES. THE MOOSE STEPS OUT CASUALLY AND MY BROTHER-IN-LAW SHOOTS IT.................dream ends.

  WEDNESDAY     5 - 19 - 21

 ANOTHER FIRE PIT AND GET TOGETHER AT OUR HOUSE. MY FAVORITE ELDEST FRIEND / BARTENDER GETS ALONG WITH MAZE SO GOOD IT'S ACTUALLY FUN TO SEE THEM TOGETHER. SHE HAS MAZE DOWN TO JUST ONE JUMP...... ON HER.

 FB MARKETPLACE - I TAKE A NICE 7 MILE RIDE TO PICK UP A BBQ COVER WITH STRAPS THAT MATCHES OUR BRAND NAME BBQ PERFECTLY.  OUR CHAR-BROIL BBQ NOW HAS A CHAR-BROIL COVER WITH STRAPS. NO MORE BUNGEE CORDS AND SUPER TORN UP COVER.

 FB MARKETPLACE II - TAKE A 1 MILE RIDE TO A NEIGHBORHOOD AND STREET I NEVER COME OUT OF. BEHIND VILLANOVA WAS AN AWESOME AREA. I PICKED UP A CASE OF 10W 30 OIL FOR......FREE.

 BACK HOME I WATCH THE MOVIE THE FAST AND FURIOUS PRESENTS HOBBS & SHAW. IT WAS SILLY AND CAMPY BUT THE SPECIAL EFFECTS WERE OFF THE CHARTS GOOD. STORY LINE OKAY , GOOD CHEMISTRY & ONE LINERS BY THE ROCK AND JASON STATHAM , ACTING SO-SO , FUN AFTER MOVIE BLOOPERS , MAIN ACTRESS LOOKS DAMN LIKE OUR FRIEND/BARTENDER ( I TOLD HER ) , AND OVERALL OKAY TO WATCH....FOR FREE. I HAPPEN TO CHECK OUR HBO MAX AND IT HAD IT. I AM NOW CAUGHT UP ON ALL FAST AND FURIOUS MOVIES.........THANK GOD.

 DINNER OUTSIDE ON THE PATIO. ALWAYS NICE.

 ELDEST IS THROWING OUT AT LEAST 20 MEALS. I JUST DON'T GET IT AND NEVER WILL.

 RE-TOUCH UP PAINT SHUDDERS.

  UNHITCHED TRAILER TO STORE IN GARAGE. I HEARD IT MIGHT RAIN. THE GOOD THING IT JUST TAKES MINUTES TO DO.

 FACETIMING WITH OUR YOUNGEST. JUST LOOKING AT HER PLEASES ME TO NO END. SHE IS OFFICIALLY DONE HER SOPHOMORE YEAR. HER AND FRIENDS SPENT SOME TIME AT THEIR NEW APARTMENT PUTTING THINGS TOGETHER AND CLEANING. I EMAILED THE LANDLORD FOR PERMISSION TO DO SOME SMALL PROJECTS AT NO CHARGE TO THE HOUSE. HE HAS NOT ANSWERED IN 2 DAYS. THE BIG ONE WOULD BE REPLACING A FLIMSY FENCE. MY BROTHER OFFERED TO HELP. THIS IS BIG BECAUSE HE HAS A 1,000 TOOLS. I THINK IT WILL BE FUN WORKING WITH MY YOUNGEST AND HER 3 ROOM MATES.

 FRIDAY NIGHT OUROBOROS RETURNS TO THE NAIL AT 8PM. THEY ARE FORMERLY KNOWN AS KNIGHTLIFE.

 I WAS TOLD BY SEVERAL FRIENDS AND FAMILY CHERNOBYL WAS THE BEST TV SERIES OF ALL TIME. IT IS ONLY 5 EPISODES AND WE ALREADY WATCHED 1 BUT GOT AWAY FROM IT. TONIGHT WE WATCHED EPISODE 2. IT WAS VERY GOOD.

 WIND DOWN THE NIGHT WATCHING THE PHILLIES " SUCK US IN ".  AGAIN , WITH LATE INNING MEN ON BASE AND THAN FAIL TO SCORE THEM. EVERY TIME I SAY TO WHEELS , " WELP , PHILLIES ARE SUCKING US IN AGAIN. " ABSOLUTELY KNEW BRYCE HARPER WOULD STRIKE OUT .......AGAIN.....WHEN NEEDED MOST.  WHEN WE HAVE A LEAD OF 10 RUNS HE GETS A HIT. WHEN WE ARE LOSING BY 2 RUNS AND HE HAS A CHANCE TO DRIVE IN PLAYERS TO TIE OR EVEN WIN THE GAME.....HE STRIKES OUT.......BLOW.

 LATE LATE NIGHT FIRE PIT AND POOL PLAYING. AHHHH THE SMELL OF FIRE WOOD , WHITE CLAW , AND POT. MY ELDEST IS SO LUCKY I ADORE HER FRIEND / BARTENDER HERE. THE FRIEND MADE ME LAUGH AS SHE TEXTED ME , " LOOK MR B. , I STARTED A FIRE WITHOUT GASOLINE !! " I LOOKED OUTSIDE AND IT WAS A GOOD FIRE PIT.

  THURSDAY      5 - 20 - 21

 BETTER DIRECTIONS PLEASE......JESUS CHRIST.

 EARLY EARLY MORNING WHEELS HELPS ME INSTALL 2 MORE WINDOW SHUDDERS. AGAIN ME ON A ROOF AND LADDER IS NOT A GOOD IDEA.  I AM OKAY WITH THEM.

 I FIND OUT A NICE LITTLE SAYING FOR AVOIDING POISON OAK OR POISON IVY....." LEAVES OF THREE , LET IT BE. "

 FIXED TWO DOORS IN OUR BATHROOM. ONE WAS A RELEASE FOR A MIRROR MEDICINE CABINET AND THE OTHER IN A CABINET OVER A TOILET. THEY WERE MACGYVERED AND I AM OKAY WITH IT.

 EMAIL TOWNSHIP ON WHEN MULCH IS BEING SCREENED AND DELIVERED TO OUR LOCAL PARKS. I WAS VERY SURPRISED THEY GOT BACK TO ME QUICKLY. THEY SAID , " TOMORROW , BLACK DEEP MULCH IS BEING SCREENED AT 7AM AND DELIVERED BY 10AM TO DESIGNATED AREAS. ". I WROTE BACK , " OK COOL "

 LOAD AND HOOK UP MY BELOVED TRAILER AND HEAD TO THE NAIL. HOLY SHIT ALL KINDS OF TOWNSHIP WORKERS ALONG HAVERFORD ROAD. IT IS A COMPLETE SHIT SHOW OF TRUCKS AND EQUIPMENT. I BRING THE PUP WITH ME AND EMPTY THE TRAILER IN OUR DUMPSTER.

 IN THE NAIL I PREP AND DO SOME MINOR THINGS. I DID CHANGED OUT A GARDEN HOSE ( FREE ) AND ALSO LEAF BLEW THE FRONT AREA. OH MY GOD DIRT DEBRIS ALL OVER THE PLACE.

 ROLL OUT AND MAKE A STOP AT A VERY LOCAL APARTMENT BUILDING. YES , IT'S FB MARKETPLACE AGAIN. I AM LOOKING FOR BEDROOM CLOCKS. WE ARE MISSING TWO AT THE CONDO. OUR ELDEST SAID WE CAN HAVE HERS THAT SHE NEVER USES SO I JUST NEED ONE NOW. I CONTACT AN OLDER LADY ABOUT A REALLY COOL TRANSPARENT CLOCK AND 6 BRAND NEW SPICE JARS. I DIDN'T CARE ABOUT THE JARS BUT THEY ARE COOL AND SHE SAYS , " JUST WALK AROUND BUILDING AND I WILL PLACE OUTSIDE. I AM THE 2ND STAIRWAY - APARTMENT 6."

 OKAY , I GET THE PUP AND WALK AROUND THE BUILDING LOOKING FOR APARTMENT 6. I INSTANTLY SEE 2 , 3 , 4 , 5..............AAAAAAAAAND SKIPS TO 7 , 8 , 9 , 10 , 11 , 12. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME ??!! EVERY DAMN NUMBER CAN BE SEEN EXCEPT.......6 !!! I SWEAR TO BABY JESUS PEOPLE ANNOY ME.  I KEEP RETURNING TO THE 2ND STAIR CASE AND LOOK FOR A SMALL BOX. AFTER 3 MINUTES OF SEARCHING I CALL HER NUMBER. I START TO WALK TOWARDS THE FRONT AND SHE YELLS IN AN SARCASTIC VOICE , " HERE , HERE , OVER HERE , HERE , HERE FATTY. " I INSTANTLY TURN AROUND AND HEAD JUST 10 FEET TO WHERE SHE WAS ON HER BALCONY. I TELL HER , " THERE IS NO #6. " SHE REPLIES . " UP HERE THERE IS NO NUMBERS. THE BOX IS HERE , I'M IN A MEETING , AND KEEP THE DOG DOWN THERE. " I GO UP THE SMALL STAIR CASE, MAKE A LEFT THROUGH A SMALL GATE , ENTER A TINY BALCONY , AND BEHIND SMALL CHAIRS & TABLES IS A SMALL BOX. HOW THE FUCK WAS I SUPPOSE TO SEE THIS ??!! OH , AND THIS OLD BAG WAS NOT IN A FUCKING MEETING UNLESS IT WAS ABOUT HOW TO MAKE METAMUCIL TASTES BETTER WITH VODKA  MAN , WAS I ANNOYED TO GET SOMETHING FREE.

 ROLL HOME AND CHILL FOR A LITTLE BIT. WHEELS LIKES THE BRAND NEW SMALL SPICE JARS AND I TINKER AROUND WITH THIS COOL LITTLE CLOCK WITH A PHONE CHARGER PORT AND NIGHT LIGHT.

 HEAD OUTSIDE TO CUT LAWNS ON 2 PROPERTIES. I USE MY BACK-UP SELF PROPELLED LAWN MOWER JUST TO SEE HOW IT RUNS AFTER GETTING IT WORKED ON. IT WAS PERFECT. I DO NOT NEED A 2ND MOWER SO I MAY GIVE THIS AWAY ON FB MARKEPLACE.

 INSIDE I CHECK EMAILS AND SUCH. A QUICK FACETIME WITH OUR YOUNGEST IS ALWAYS A PLEASURE. SHE IS ENJOYING THEIR NEW APARTMENT AND WE ARE SCHEDULING OUR TIMES TO GET TOGETHER OVER THE WEEKEND.

 LATE AFTERNOON WE TAKE A RIDE TO THE MOTHER-IN-LAW'S HOUSE TO PICK UP 2 CHAIRS FROM THE EARLY 1700'S FOR OUR YOUNGEST APARTMENT. GEORGE AND MARTHA WASHINGTON WERE THE PREVIOUS OWNERS.

 WE STOP AT AN EXCELLENT GIANT STORE. FULLY STOCKED AND NO ONE AROUND......WITH A ROBOT THAT MOVES AROUND THE FLOORS BEEPING. I BUY COOKIES.....3 FOR 5 BUCKS......DAMN IT !!

 WE LOAD UP VAN AND I SAY , " WANNA DO A HAPPY HOUR AT THAT BAR RIGHT HERE....APPETIZER AND A BEER ? " YOU WOULD NEED TO GO RIGHT THROUGH THE PARKING LOT TO GET THERE. WHEELS MAKES A LEFT.

  BACK HOME TO THE COMPUTERS.

 LAY AN ULTIMATUM DOWN ON OUR ELDEST....CLEAN ROOM / THROW OUT FOOD OR ELSE. I ALSO TOLD A NEPHEW WHERE SHE WAS CHILLING OUT TONIGHT. SHE GAVE ME THE FINGER WHILE I WAS ON THE PHONE WITH HIM.

 ALL OF US OUT ON THE PATIO FOR A WONDERFUL ROASTED ROTISSERIE CHICKEN DINNER WITH CHICKEN SALAD ( NUTS AND BERRIES ADDED A NICE FLAVOR ) , STRING BEANS , & PASTA SALAD. I HAD A TINY GLASS OF RED WINE.

 ELDEST GOES SHOPPING AND GETS ME A GIFT.......2 BEER FOAM COZIES SAYING , " EMBARRASSING MY KIDS ONE DAY AT A TIME " AND " DAD JOKES " ( A FUEL GAUGE IS UNDER THE CAPTION WITH THE NEEDLE POINTING TOWARDS FULL ). THIS IS EXACTLY HOW I WANT MY KIDS TO REMEMBER ME.....A SENSE OF HUMOR THAT MADE THEM LAUGH EVERY DAY.

 IT WAS CONFIRMED TODAY THAT WHEELS WILL NOT MISS ME WHEN I LEAVE THIS EARTH IN A COUPLE OF YEARS.

 WE TAKE A RIDE TO A NEIGHBOR'S HOUSE. ON THE MAIN ROAD I SEE OUR ELDEST IN A DRIVEWAY WITH HER FRIENDS. I MAKE WHEELS STOP , ROLL DOWN THE WINDOW , AND YELL OUT , " I TOLD YOUR COUSIN WHERE YOU ARE RIGHT NOW!!! " . SHE GIVES ME A DOUBLE FINGER.

 AT A FRIENDS HOUSE WE ARE PICKING UP A LARGE FLAT SCREEN TV FOR OUR YOUNGEST AND HER APARTMENT. ALL DAY WE HAVE BEEN PACKING STUFF FOR HER LIKE LIGHT BULBS ( $10 FOUR PACK AT GIANT. I SHOWED WHEELS - TOLD YOUNGEST TO TELL FRIENDS & THEIR FAMILIES NEVER TO BUY LIGHT BULBS EVER AGAIN ) , DRIVEWAY CHALK ( FOR MOLESTIS PARTY !! )  , RATCHET SET , AND MORE.

 ANYWAY , IT WAS A VERY NICE VISIT TO OUR FRIENDS PLACE. MAN DOES THIS GUY HAVE THE GADGETRY. EVERY LIGHT TURNS ON WITH A COMMAND. WE SAT AND TALKED FOR A LITTLE BIT AND IT WAS NICE. THAN..........HE HESITATED AND ASKED FOR HELP......CRAP. CAN I CARRY AND INSTALL 4 WINDOW AIR CONDITIONERS. TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH I WAS HAPPY TO DO IT....EVEN FROM BASEMENT TO 3RD FLOOR WITH SUPER TIGHT STAIRCASES.  WE ALSO GRAB THE TV AND LOAD IT IN OUR VAN.

 BACK HOME WE WATCH AN EPISODE OF CHERNOBYL. IT WAS VERY GOOD AND EYE OPENING HOW RUSSIA HIDES EVERYTHING AND THE ARMY SUPERVISES....EVERYTHING.

 NEXT WE WERE LOOKING FOR ANOTHER SHORT TV SHOW. ONE RECOMMENDED WAS NARRATED BY JOHN MCENROE. THIS IS ALL I NEEDED TO HEAR. ACTUALLY IT WAS QUITE CLEVER AND HAD SOME FUN AND HEART WARMING MOMENTS. THE SERIES IS CALLED , " NEVER HAVE I EVER ".

 PHILLIES BATTLE TO A 6 - 0 LOSS.......BLOW. HOW DO THE MARLINS HAVE A LOSING RECORD ?  FUCKING BEST TEAM EVER !!

 OFF TO BED AND SLEPT DECENT.

 AT ANNUNCIATION BVM ELEMENTARY SCHOOL I PLAYED 8TH GRADE FOOTBALL. AS A RUNNING BACK I AVERAGED 4.2 YARDS A CARRY ( ON 2 TOTAL CARRIES ) . THROUGH OUR PHILLIES CONNECTIONS I ACCESS THE LINC FIELD AND  MEET THE NEW EAGLES COACH DURING A PRACTICE WITH THE TEAM. THIS IS PRETTY DAMN COOL. I SEE THEM RUNNING PLAYS ONLY UP THE MIDDLE. ALL RUNNING BACKS ARE TACKLED BEHIND THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE BECAUSE THE DEFENSE KNOWS IT IS ALL RUNNING PLAYS UP THE MIDDLE. I ASK THE COACH WHY HE IS DOING THIS AND HE SAYS , " WE WANT THE DEFENSE TO STOP PLAYS WHEN THEY KNOW IT IS COMING. " I REPLY LIKE AL BUNDY , " YOU KNOW IN MY DAY I AVERAGED 4.2 YARDS A RUN ". 

 CONTINUED - HE REPLIES , " PROVE IT. GO GET A HELMET AND SHOULDER PADS AND PUT THEM ON. " SO I DO. I AM IN SHORTS AND SNEAKERS LIKE EVERYONE ELSE. THE OFFENSE RUNS A FORMATION WITH ME AS FULL BACK. THEY HAND ME THE BALL AND I RUN FOR A LITTLE UNDER 5 YARDS. WE RUN IT AGAIN AND I RUN A LITTLE UNDER 5 YARDS A 2ND TIME. I HEAR ONE PLAYER ON THE DEFENSE SAY , "  BEGINNERS LUCK ! "   WE RUN IT THREE MORE TIMES AND EVERY TIME I RUN OVER 4 1/2 YARDS. THE COACH IS ASTONISHED AND SAYS , " OFFENSE STEP ASIDE AND ONLY HIKE THE BALL TO HIM. THE CENTER TOSSES ME THE BALL ABOUT 6 YARDS DEEP BEHIND THE LINE OF SCRIMMAGE AND ALL 5 DEFENSIVE LINEMEN ATTACKED ME. I STRUGGLE LIKE LARRY CZONKA OF THE MIAMI DOLPHINS WITH THE DEFENSE ON MY BACK AND JUST MAKE MY 4.2 YARDS.

 CONTINUED - THE COACH YELLS OUT , " HOLY SHIT !! WHAT THE HELL DO YOU WEIGH ? " I REPLY , " 285 ". HE REPLIES , " YOU DO NOT LOOK ANYWHERE NEAR THAT WEIGHT. "  THE DEFENSE IS PISSED SO THEY TRY IT ONE MORE TIME. AGAIN , JUST THE CENTER STANDING UP HIKES THE BALL TO ME AND STEPS ASIDE. ALL 5 LINEMEN RUSH ME BUT I CARRY THEM JUST ABOUT 5 YARDS. NOW ALL PLAYERS FROM THE WHOLE TEAM ARE WHOOPING IT UP AND GIVING ME ACCOLADES. THEY ARE CHEERING AND BAITING THE DEFENSE TO TRY TO STOP " THE BIG MAN ". I START TO GIGGLE AND FEEL A LITTLE SHY.......dream ends.

 FRIDAY        5 - 21 - 21

  YEP.....ONE WAVE AT ME AND I AM DRINKING.

  RIGHT TO FB MARKETPLACE - PICKED UP A NICE SERVER CABINET WITH SPINNING WHEELS AND A BASEBALL CLOCK ( I KNOW ). ONE WAS IN A BEAUTIFUL NEIGHBORHOOD. I ALSO MET A VERY NICE HOSPITAL TECHNICIAN AT THE NAIL. I ASKED HIM ABOUT THE FAKENESS OR TRUTH OF COVID. HE SAID , " OH IT WAS REAL ALRIGHT ". AT ONE POINT HIS HOSPITAL HAD A 100 CASES........A DAY. HE TOLD ME A JANITOR DIED OF COVID BECAUSE HE WAS LAZY ON PRECAUTIONS.

 I DRIVE BY A LOCAL PARK. THE MULCH IS IN. I TEXT A BROTHER. I CAN NOT WRITE WHAT HE TEXTED BACK.

 SINCE I HAVE THE TOOLS RIGHT AVAILABLE AND GARAGE SPACE OPEN I PUT TOGETHER 4 DINING ROOM CHAIRS FOR THE MOUNTAIN HOUSE. I ADD MIDDLE WOOD SUPPORTS UNDER EACH SEAT TOO. THEY CAME OUT NICE.

 PLAY WITH THE PUP OUTSIDE. THE DOG IS JUST UN-ENDING FUN.

 INSTALL A 2ND FLOOR A/C UNIT FOR OUR ELDEST. I TESTED THE AIR IT WAS BLOWING.........52 DEGREES. THAT IS VERY GOOD.  I THINK AIR SHOULD BLOW BETWEEN HIGH 40'S TO LOW TO MID 50'S. I REMEMBER ONE TECH TOLD ME IF THE AIR BLOWS 10 TO 15 DEGREES BELOW THE OUTSIDE AIR TEMP THAN THAT IS NORMAL. I SAY FUCK THAT. IF IT IS 100 DEGREES OUTSIDE AND YOUR A/C IS BLOWING 85-90 DEGREES ? , TO ME , THAT FUCKING BLOWS ASS. I TOTALLY DISAGREED WITH HIM FROM DAY 1.

  ATTACH A BOX TO MY MOTORCYCLE BEING DELIVERED TO THE NAIL. I AM MEETING A VERY NICE GUY THERE. I TELL HIM I AM THERE FROM 6PM TO 2AM.......ANNNNNNNY TIME BETWEEN THOSE TIMES IS PERFECTLY FINE TO STOP BY. I GET A TEXT , " I AM HERE ". TIME - 5:40PM. I SWEAR PEOPLE.

 SO I RACE TO THE NAIL ON MY BIKE AND MEET THE GUY. WE TALK FOR ABOUT 20 MINUTES AND HE ROLLS OUT. I KNOW I HAVE TO FILL MY MOTORCYCLE TANK SO I RIDE TO THE EXXON DOWN THE STREET. I KNOW MY TANK IS LOW....REAL LOW.

 AT THE GAS STATION I FILL UP. MY TANK HOLDS 3.5 GALLONS OF FUEL. I FILL 3.37 AND COULD OF DONE A LITTLE MORE. RUNNING OUT OF GAS ON A MOTORCYCLE BLOWS. I NARROWLY MISSED THIS TIME. I ALSO PUT IN SUPER HIGH ULTRA GAS AT $4.79 A GALLON SINCE IT WAS MY FIRST FILL OF THE RIDING SEASON.

 BACK TO THE NAIL TO PREP FOR THE BAND OUROBOROS. THIS IS THE OLD KNIGHTLIFE BAND. I KNOW THEM WELL. IT WAS GRETA TO SEE AND WATCH THEM PERFORM.

 I AM PLEASANTLY SURPRISED THAT OVER 20 PEOPLE STOPPED IN FOR A 2+ HOUR SET. IT WAS SO NICE TO SEE AND IT IS OUR BARTENDER'S FAVORITE BAND.

 IT IS SO GOOD TO SEE LIVE MUSIC ON OUR STAGE AGAIN. WHAT WAS EVEN COOLER WAS CROWD PARTICIPATION. EVEN THE BARTENDER WAS SINGING ALONG TO THE SONG BEING PERFORMED. I ASKED HER , " IS THIS A COVER SONG ? WHO SINGS IT ? " SHE REPLIED , " NO , IT IS AN OLD KNIGHTLIFE SONG. " I TOLD THE BAND THIS LATER IN THE NIGHT THAT HAS TO FEEL GOOD TO HEAR PEOPLE SING YOUR SONG.

 OUR TRADITION OF THE BARTENDER AND I PLAYING QUEEN AND STRAY CATS WHEN THE BAND IS DONE. IT IS SO MUCH FUN TO SEE PEOPLE SING BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY AND STRAY CAT STRUT. IT IS LITERALLY IMPOSSIBLE NOT TO BOB YOUR HEAD TO THESE SONGS.

  SHOW STARTED AT 8PM AND BY 11PM WE WERE ROLLING OUT. I TAKE A WONDERFUL MOTORCYCLE RIDE HOME AND STOP AT A TRAFFIC LIGHT IN FRONT OF A LOCAL PUB. THREE FRIENDS OF MY EDLEST WAVE TO ME. I PULL OVER TO TALK FOR A MINUTE. ONE FRIEND SAYS , " HEY MR. B !! C'MON IN AND I WILL BUY YOU A BEER. " YEP....THAT IS ALL IT TOOK. ABOUT 10 FRIENDS WERE THERE AND THEY HUDDLED AROUND ME. IT WAS NICE MY FAVORITE FRIEND / BARTENDER OF OURS WAS ACTUALLY BARTENDING HERE. SHE IS ADORABLE AND I CONSIDER HER A DAUGHTER. ABOUT AN HOUR LATER OUR ELDEST STOPPED BY. I CHILLED WITH HER FOR ABOUT 20 MINUTES.

 AT THE BAR I SEE ANOTHER ADORABLE GIRL I REALLY LIKE. SHE LIVES ACROSS THE STREET FROM ME. I WAS TALKING TO HER BROTHER EARLIER. SHE WALKS OVER AND SAYS HELLO. WE TALK FOR ABOUT 15 MINUTES. I ASKED HER WHEN AND WHY SHE STOPPED BY. SHE TELLS ME , " I WAS DRIVING BY AND SOME FRIENDS WAVED TO ME WHEN STOPPED AT THE TRAFFIC LIGHT....SO I CAME IN. " I REPLY SMILING , " THE EXACT SAME THING HAPPENED TO ME. I THINK I WANT THEM TO WORK OUTSIDE THE NAIL. "

 ANOTHER STORY - I AM SITTING AT THE BAR AND A REALLY NICE YOUNG GUY IS TALKING TO ME. HE HAS BEEN TO THE NAIL , OUR BASEMENT , AND THE MOUNTAIN HOUSE. HE TELLS ME MY DAUGHTER'S FRIEND GETS TREATED LIKE GOLD EVERYWHERE HE GOES. I ASK HIM , " HOW ABOUT THE NAIL ? " HE REPLIES , " OH GOD YES BECAUSE " J " WORKS THERE AND SHE IS ONE OF HIS BEST FRIENDS. HE NEVER PAYS COVER. " I REPLY , " REALLY ?? " I PLAY WITH HIM SOME MORE AND FINALLY REVEAL I AM THE OWNER OF THE NAIL AND THE DAD. ALL THE FRIENDS LAUGH AND POINT AT HIM LIKE HE WAS ON THE TV SHOW " PUNK'D. "

 I SAY GOODBYE AND MY ELDEST TELLS ME SHE IS HAVING FRIENDS OVER TO OUR BASEMENT TO SHOOT POOL AND LISTEN TO MUSIC SOON. YEP.....I WAS EXPECTING THAT.

 BACK HOME I WALK THE PUP. SHE GREETS ME LIKE I WAS IN AFGHANISTAN FOR 5 YEARS.

 ANOTHER DAY AND NIGHT IN THE BOOKS.

   SATURDAY       5 - 22 - 21

 AND YOU'RE A LIAR......AGAIN , SOME PEOPLE ARE ASSHOLES AND WAY FATTER THAN ME......FATTY FAT FATTY...FAT.

 THIS WAS A LONG BUT FUN DAY AND NIGHT. AGAIN I GET EMAILED , " HOW THE HELL DOES SO MUCH HAPPEN TO YOU EACH DAY TO WRITE YOUR BLOG ? " ALWAYS ALOT TO WRITE WHEN YOU OWN A BAR AND ARE FATTER THAN MOST GORILLAS.

  LOADED VAN WITH MORE STUFF FOR OUR YOUNGEST. WE LEAVE AT 9AM.

 FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE ONE - WE STOP IN A SHITTY SHITTY SHIT FUCKING AREA. I WAS IN CONSTANT COMMUNICATION WITH A WOMAN NAMED " LOVE. " SHE WAS GIVING US A VERY NICE OFFICE CHAIR. I MESSAGE HER , " ETA IS 9:30AM ". SHE GIVES ME A THUMBS UP. WE ARRIVE AND A HUGE FAT DUDE ON HIS CELL PHONE THINKS I AM A NARC OR UNDER COVER COP AS I WALK UP. I ASK FOR " LOVE " AND SHE HAPPENS TO COME OUTSIDE. SHE IS BIGGER THAN THE GUY. HER ASS ACTUALLY LOOKS LIKE A HERBIE THE LOVE BUG VOLKSWAGEN IS UNDER HER PANTS. I SAY , "  I AM HERE FOR THE OFFICE CHAIR FOR OUR DAUGHTER. " I SEE HER FACE AND INSTANTLY KNOW SOMETHING IS WRONG PLUS THE CHAIR IS NOT ON THE PORCH WITH A TON OF OTHER SHIT. SHE SAYS , " OHHHHH.......UHMMMMM. " I INSTANTLY TURN AROUND AND PUT MY ARM UP TO WAVE GOOD BYE AND SAY " THANKS ANYWAY " WHILE WALKING AWAY. " SHE CONTINUES TO SAY , ( AS I IMMEDIATELY WALK BACK TO THE VAN TOTALLY FRUSTRATED. I KNEW SHE WAS LYING AND A BULL SHITTER ) , " OH , IT MUST OF BEEN STOLEN LAST NIGHT."  I ASKED HER LAST NIGHT NOT TO PUT IT OUT UNTIL THIS MORNING.  A COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME. I CALL MY COUSIN " A " AND MAKE HIM CRY LAUGH FOR OVER 15 STRAIGHT MINUTES.

 FACEBOOK MARKETPLACE 2 - EASY PICK UP FOR A TV WALL MOUNT. IT IS BRAND NEW.

 FINALLY STOP AT COLLEGE AND LOAD UP OUR YOUNGEST AND HER STUFF.  WE ROLL TO HER RENTAL HOUSE AND UNLOAD. I STAY THERE TO ASSEMBLE THINGS AND FIX STUFF.  THEY LOAD UP 2 OTHER ROOM MATES.

 I MACGYVER PUTTING A BED AND DECK TOGETHER. ONE ROOM MATE I FEEL BAD AS HER FATHER NEVER SHOWED UP. TO ME.....UN.....FUCKING.......COOL. SHE WAS SO UPSET AND FELT TOTALLY BAD FOR HER. WE SHOWED UP AND OTHER PARENTS TO HELPED. I DID A TON.....AS ALWAYS.

 WE ROLL HOME TO SHOWER AND CHANGE. I TRY ON 20 THINGS AND ALL CLOTHES SCREAM I AM SUPER FAT NOW. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING FITS. IT IS THE EXACT SCENE IN TOMMY BOY AS WHEELS WATCHES ME STRUGLLE......." FAT GUY IN A LITTLE COAT ".

  WE HEAD TO OUR FIRST PHILLIES GAME OF THE SEASON. WE GET THE V.I.P. TREATMENT AND IT IS FUN.

 WE GET TO SEE FRIENDS FROM THE SOUTH WHICH HAS BEEN OVER 2 YEARS. THEY CAME UP NORTH BECAUSE THE MOTHER PASSED. I FELT SO BAD FOR THEM BUT IT WAS REALLY COOL TO SEE THEM.

 MY ADORABLE NIECE TURNED 21. I JUST CAN'T BELIEVE IT. I PLAY A RUSE ON HER AND MY 2 DAUGHTERS. I ASK OUR BLONDE BARTENDER ( AN ABSOLUTE SMOKE SHOW ) TO POUR 4 SHOTS OF CRANBERRY JUICE ONLY. I TELL HER TO SAY JUST ONE HAS VODKA IN IT. I BRING THE KIDS OVER AND WE DO A SHOT. THE BARTENDER TELLS THEM , " ONE OF THESE SHOTS HAS ALCOHOL. HAPPY BIRTHDAY M. " ( LITTLE DID THEY KNOW NONE OF THEM HAD BOOZE IN IT. )

 I TIP OUR PIECE OF ASS BARTENDER VERY WELL AND GIVE HER A COOKIE.

  BARTENDER OVERHEARS ME ORDERING A DRINK TO A FRIEND.  I SEE SHE IS ALREADY PREPPING THE DRINK. I CHANGE THE DRINK. I SEE HER RE-START ANOTHER DRINK AND I CHANGE MY MIND AND YELL OUT TO MY FRIEND TO CHANGE THE DRINK. I SEE THE BARTENDER LOOK AT ME AND I SAY , " THERE BETTER BE A SMILE UNDER THAT MASK. " SHE REMOVES THE MASK AND SHE HAS A HUGE SMILE. THE GIRL IS AM ABSOLUTE MODEL.

 TOP NOTCH FOOD LIKE SIRLOIN , STEAK , FILET , AND MORE. DESERTS AND DRINKS FLOWED ALL NIGHT. IT WAS SO RELAXING. IT IS A DAMN SHAME THE PHILLIES SUCKED US IN AGAIN WITH ANOTHER COME BACK FALLING SHORT IN THE 9TH INNING WITH OUR BEST PLAYERS STRIKING OUT....HARPER AND HOSKINS. AND BLOW. HARPER HAS 2 HITS IN HIS LAST 25 AT BATS.........BLOW

 MORE FUN AND MIKE SCHMIDT IS HAVING A PARTY 50 FEET AWAY....NICE.

 MY NIECE POSTS ON INSTAGRAM SHE IS AT THE PHILLIES GAME WITH FRIENDS. MY KIDS SEE AND OF COURSE WE ARE NOW STANDING AND WAVING TO EACH OTHER. IT WAS FUNNY AS SHE WAS WAY WAY UP IN RIGHT FIELD BLEACHERS IN THE TOP LEVEL WHILE WE WERE IN A SUITE. I TEXT MY BROTHER AND WIFE THAT THEIR DAUGHTER WAS BEING ESCORTED OUT BY STADIUM SECURITY. I HAVE TO ADMIT THERE WAS A SHITLOAD OF SMOKE SHOW GIRLS AND .....RED SOX FANS.

 ROLL OUT AND MY OTHER NIECE COMES WITH US. THIS WAS AWESOME. WE STOP AT OUR YOUNGEST ROW HOME RENTAL TO DROP HER OFF AND SAY HELLO TO HER ROOM MATES. THEY ARE ALL ADORABLE. MY ELDEST AND I PLACE 4 WHITE CLAWS IN THEIR FRIDGE WITHOUT THEM KNOWING. I RARELY DO THIS AND TEXT MY YOUNGEST , " A LITTLE " FIRST NIGHT " GIFT IN THE FRIDGE.

 THE STREET IS SO NARROW YOU HAVE TO LITERALLY PARK ON THE SIDEWALK. TWO CARS PARKED ACROSS FROM EACH OTHER BLOCKED THE STREET........ASSHOLES.  I HAD TO BACK OUT A WHOLE BLOCK TO LEAVE.

 DROP OFF MY NIECE AND WE ROLL HOME.

 SEVEN HOURS WE LEFT THE PUP BY HERSELF. MAN DID SHE GREET US LIKE WE CAME HOME FROM WAR.

 IT IS 1AM AND I HAVE A NIGHTCAP. I STOPPED DRINKING FOR ABOUT 2 HOURS AND JUST HAD WATER. I BARELY FINISHED AND STARTED FALLING ASLEEP.

 SUNDAY    5 - 23 - 21

 I HAVE SAID IT FOR YEARS......" RUSHING RUINS ".  I DO NOT CARE WHAT YOU ARE DOING. IF YOU " RUSH " YOU WILL MAKE MISTAKES AND FORGET THINGS. I LITERALLY DID IT ALL DAY 20 TIMES.

  LET'S START THIS DAY WITH A FAMILIAR THING.

 WE LOAD UP. IT IS TIME TO MAKE STOPS AND EVENTUALLY HEAD EAST.

 STOP AT D.M.I. HARDWARE STORE.

 STOP AT THE NAIL TO PREP FOR THE NIGHT.

 FB MARKETPLACE 1 - SMALL WORLD - A VERY NICE YOUNG FAMILY I CONTACT FOR A ROKU STREAMING DEVICE ( BEST INVENTION EVER !! ) TELLS ME I CAN PICK UP A ROKU , REMOTE , POWER SUPPLY , AND HDMI CORD IN HAVERTOWN. SHE MESSAGES ME THE STREET LOCATION........" HEATHERWOOD ROAD ".  NOW THAT IS A SMALL WORLD. WHY ? IT'S THE STREET I GREW UP ON.

 CONTINUED - ONE LITTLE PROBLEM. I STOP BY TO PICK UP THE ROKU AT THE DESIGNATED TIME OF 9AM.....NO ONE IS HOME. WE ROLL DOWN THE STREET AND VISIT MY PARENTS TO WASTE SOME TIME. WE SAT ON THE PATIO AND MY PHONE GOES OFF.  THE MESSAGE READ , " OH MY GOD I AM SO SORRY I LEFT MY PHONE  AT HOME. WE ARE HERE NOW. " WE DRIVE UP AND I SASS THE OWNER A LITTLE BIT BY SAYING , " WHEN I GOT HERE AND NO ONE ANSWERED FOR 10 MINUTES I SAID TO MYSELF THERE IS NO WAY A FELLOW HAVERTOWNIAN WOULD GHOST ME. " THE COUPLE LAUGHED AND I TALKED TO THEM MORE ABOUT LIVING ON THIS STREET. THEY MOVED HERE IN 2017 AND LOVE THE AREA.

 FB MARKETPLACE 2 - WE STOP IN MEDIA AND AN ADORABLE GIRL GIVES US A TOASTER OVEN.

 WE ROLL TO OUR YOUNGEST ROW HOUSE RENTAL. WE BUY LUNCH FOR EVERYONE AND I DO SOME MINOR PROJECTS. MY GOAL OF FURNISHING A WHOLE HOUSE FOR FREE HAS BECOME REALITY. MY YOUNGEST AND FRIENDS FREAK OUT ON THE 2ND ROKU AND TOASTER OVEN. I ALSO GAVE THEM A BRAND NEW GARDEN HOSE NOZZLE WITH 12 SETTINGS ALONG WITH LIGHT BULBS.

 WE TREAT FOR LUNCH AT REX'S PIZZERIA RIGHT UP THE STREET. THEIR FOOD IS GOOD. ALL OF US SIT AT THEIR LITTLE TABLE AND MORE ROOM MATES COME IN ALONG WITH PARENTS. USING THE ROKU THEY PLAY OUR PLAYLIST ON  SPOTIFY VIA THE TV I GOT THEM. BEST SONGS EVER.

 I ENJOY MY STAY SO MUCH. THESE KIDS ARE JUST SO GOOD. THE ROOM MATES MUST HAVE A CONNECTION. PRIVATELY , I ASK WHICH HOSE NOZZLE THEY LIKE OUT OF THE 2 I BROUGHT. ALL 4 PICKED THE SAME ONE. THEY LAUGHED AND I THOUGHT IT WAS CUTE.

 OF COURSE I CHECK THE REFRIGERATOR AND ALL 4 WHITE CLAWS ARE GONE. YES , I JOKED WITH THEM ABOUT HOW THEY ARE SUDDENLY MISSING FROM JUST LAST NIGHT.

 ON THE ROAD AND HEAD EAST. WE DIVERT TRAFFIC PRETTY GOOD AND MAKE OKAY TIME. TRAFFIC WAS FRIGGIN' EVERYWHERE.

 ARRIVE AND IT IS PRETTY DAMN HOT. A THICK HEAT THAT DID NOT DETER 1000'S OF PEOPLE HITTING THE BEACH. IT WAS SO NICE TO SEE THE BEACH OPEN.

 WHEELS WALKS THE PUP AND THAN TAKES A WALK IN THE BRUTAL HEAT.

 WE SETTLE IN AND I AM SLIGHTLY DISAPPOINTED ON HOW THE LAST RENTER LEFT IT.  WHY ? IT WAS FAMILY. WHEN YOU LET FAMILY USE YOUR HOME FOR FREE AND EXPLICITLY TELL THEM TO " OVER " CLEAN BEFORE CHECKING-OUT FOR THE NEXT RENTERS IT SHOULD BE DONE PERFECTLY. I WOULD FEEL THIS WAY IF IT WAS MY SIDE OF THE FAMILY....EVEN WORSE ACTUALLY. 

 SPEAKING OF CLEANLINESS. A LAST RENTER ( A FRIEND ) OF THE MOUNTAIN HOUSE TOLD US THEY LEFT IT SUPER CLEAN. THE NEXT RENTER SENT ME A SHIT LOAD OF PICTURES......LITERALLY.  THE STUCK POOP ON THE TOILET WAS NICE TO SEE. IT WAS LEFT BAD. AGAIN , WE MADE THE MISTAKE OF NOT HAVING OUR CLEANER DOUBLE CHECK. OTHER PEOPLE'S " CLEAN " AND HOW WE " CLEAN " ARE PRETTY DIFFERENT.

 WE HEAD OUT TO THE SHIP & SHORE BAR FOR DINNER. IT WAS NICE , GOOD FOOD , AND WE TREATED A NEIGHBOR.

  76ERS WITH A HARD FOUGHT WIN TO SECURE GAME 1 OF THE BEST OF 7 VERSE THE WIZARDS. THIS WILL NOT BE AN EASY SERIES LIKE EVERYONE SAYS.

 PHILLIES FINALLY WIN A GAME. WHEELER IS THE TRUE NUMBER #1 PITCHER.

 PHIL MICKELSON WINS PGA GOLF TOURNAMENT. HE IS THE OLDEST PLAYER TO DO THIS. HE LOOKED IN VERY GOOD SHAPE WHICH I THINK IS A BIG FACTOR AT HIS AGE TO STAY COMPETITIVE.

 BACK HOME FROM DINNER I TAKE A WALK WITH THE PUP ON THE BEACH. THE TEMPERATURES DROPPED AND IT WAS AS CLOSE TO PERFECT AS YOU CAN GET FOR A WALK ON A BEACH. BUT..........THIS IS ME AND OF COURSE SOMETHING HAS TO INTERRUPT THIS MAGNIFICENT NIGHT WALK.

 ALONG THE BEACH I SEE COUPLES SNUGGLING ON TOWELS ,  FAMILIES CHILLING WITH THEIR KIDS , A SMALL POD OF DOLPHINS , A COOL FIGHTER PILOT PLANE , KIDS PLAYING ON THE HIGH SAND MOUNDS , AND OTHER PEOPLE WALKING THEIR DOGS. IT WAS WONDERFUL UNTIL I GOT TO THE DOG PARK. THE TOWNSHIP ADDED MORE PLAY THINGS FOR THE DOGS IN THE PARK ALONG WITH NICE UMBRELLAS AND A PICNIC TABLE FOR THE OWNERS. THERE WAS JUST 2 PROBLEMS.....1 - NOT ONE DOG WAS THERE. AND 2 - ANNOYING BITING GNATS.

 AFTER JUST 15 MINUTES WE LEFT THE DOG PARK. OUR PUP WAS NOT A HAPPY CAMPER BUT THE WALK BACK ALONG THE BEACH WITH THE MOON LIGHT SHINING ON THE OCEAN WAS PRETTY DAMN COOL.

 THE BOARD WALK HAD A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF PEOPLE AND MANY STORES OPEN.

 AFTER A 1+ HOUR WALK I RETURN AND SEE WHEELS AND SOME NEIGHBORS SITTING IN THE PARKING LOT. THEY WERE JUST HEADING INSIDE TOO BECAUSE THE GNATS WERE BAD HERE.

 WE WIND DOWN WITH SOME DRINKS AND WATCH AMERICAN IDOL. THE 3 REMAINING CONTESTANTS WERE A SUPER FAT GUY WITH A TIRE TUBE FOR A NECK , A CUTE BLONDE FROM THE WASTE UP ( BELOW WASTE LOOKED LIKE SHE ATE THAT TIRE TUBE ) , AND A GOOD LOOKING SOUTHERN GUY. TRY TO GUESS WHO WON ? YEP....THE GOOD LOOKING GUY. OUR COUNTRY UNFORTUNATELY GOES BY " LOOKS " AND NOT TALENT. WE ARE THE SHALLOW HAL COUNTRY OF THE WORLD.

  I MADE MY BED EARLIER , FROZE SOME DRINKS , AND SLEPT PRETTY GOOD WITH THE PUP.

 WHEELS TAKES OFF TOMORROW.

  MONDAY      5 - 24 - 21

  ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME ? ANOTHER STORY OF HATING PEOPLE......AND SOME WHO ARE VERY COOL.

 DID SOME SMALL PROJECTS TODAY LIKE REPLACE ALL CEILING LIGHT FIXTURES WITH FLOOD LIGHT BULBS , ADJUST A CLOSET DOOR , VACUUM THE PATIO , WIPE DOWN GLASS TOPS , SIDING , & TOOL CHEST , AND SET-UP 2 BED ROOM CLOCKS IN 2 BEDROOMS.

 AT 6AM BEACH REPLENISHMENT ARE IN BEAST MODE. THERE IS TWICE THE AMOUNT OF TRUCKS ALL OVER THE BEACH MOVING THE SAND. I ASSUME THEY ARE MAKING A PUSH TO FINISH BY MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND.

 FB MARKET PLACE 1 - WHEELS AND I DRIVE TO THE RAMBLER MOTEL AND APARTMENTS. A COZY NICE PLACE TO STAY AT. THEY ARE REPLACING ALL BEDROOM FURNITURE. WE MET A VERY NICE WOMAN AND WE GOT A NIGHT STAND FOR OUR YOUNGEST.

 WE STOP AT THE PINK CADILLAC FOR BREAKFAST. THE PLACE HAS 1950'S DECOR AND WAS PRETTY COOL. WE GET A NERVOUS WAITRESS AND THE FOOD WAS GOOD. A SPINACH AND AVOCADO OMELET AND A SPINACH AND GOAT CHEESE OMELET.

 FB MARKETPLACE 2 - OUR ELDEST MEETS A DRUMMER TO PICK UP A BASE AMP AT THE NAIL BUT THAN GOES TO A HOUSE VERY CLOSE TO PICK UP AN OFFICE DESK CHAIR FOR HER SISTER. SHE TOLD ME THE CHAIR IS IN GOOD CONDITION AND THE GUY WAS SUPER COOL.

 BACK HOME WE WALK THE PUP ALONG THE BEACH AND BOARDWALK. OF COURSE WE GO TO THE DOG PARK. THIS TIME SEVERAL DOGS ARE THERE AND I VIDEO MAZE HAVING A BLAST. I SEND THE VIDEO TO OUR KIDS.

 AND THAN A 13 WEEK PUPPY COMES INTO THE ENCLOSURE. THE PUP IS ADORABLE AND PLAYS WITH MAZE. I DECIDE TO TAKE A PICTURE OF THE 13 WEEK OLD PUPPY TO SEND TO OUR KIDS. THAN I GET INTERRUPTED BY 2 FUCKING SNOT NOSED MILLENNIAL FUCKING KNOW-IT-ALL FUCKING TEEN KIDS. A GUY AND A GIRL I FIGURE ARE ABOUT 13 TO 17 YEARS OLD.

 HERE'S THE STORY - I TAKE A PICTURE OF THE LITTLE 13 WEEK OLD PUPPY. HERE'S THE CONVERSATION.

 THE GUY - " YO , WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH THE PHONE ? "

 ME - " I'M TAKING A PICTURE OF THE 13 WEEK OLD PUPPY. "

 THE GIRL - " THAT IS NOT RIGHT AND WEIRD. "

 THE GUY - " WE DID NOT GIVE YOU PERMISSION TO TAKE A PICTURE "

 ME - ( LET THE FUCKING RANT BEGIN !!!!! ) - " ARE YOU SERIOUS !!!???  TAKING A PICTURE OF A 13 WEEK PUPPY TO YOU IS OUT OF LINE ? JESUS , WHAT A WORLD WE LIVE IN. ALL THE CRAP GOING ON IN THIS WORLD AND THIS IS WHAT YOU COMPLAIN ABOUT ?? I HAVE 2 YOUNG DAUGHTERS WHO LOVE PUPPIES AND I AM SENDING THE PICTURE TO THEM. THERE IS NO MALICE HERE , NO HIDDEN AGENDA , AND ABSOLUTELY ZERO BAD INTENT. IT IS COMPLETELY INNOCENT THING AND I WILL NOT PUT IT ON SOME DARK SOCIAL WEBSITE. I SWEAR TO CHRIST I HATE THIS WORLD SOMETIMES.

 THE COUPLE MUMBLES AT ME AND I WAS SO HOPING THE GUY WOULD COMFORT ME.  I WAS SO READY FOR CODE-RED. I NEED CODE-RED. THEY MUMBLE MORE AND LEAVE THE ENCLOSURE IMMEDIATELY. SOME PEOPLE CAN BE SUCH ASSHOLES.

 WE HANG OUT LONGER AS MAZE PLAYS WITH OTHER DOGS COMING IN.....ESPECIALLY THE YOUNG BLONDE OWNER IN SPANDEX.  IT WAS A JOY. I AM STILL LOOKING OVER MY SHOULDER FOR THE YOUNG GUY TO RETURN WITH A FRIEND OR 10 TO CONFRONT ME. I WANTED IT SO BAD.

 WE ROLL OUT AND TAKE A NICE WALK BACK HOME. THE TEMPERATURES DROPPED BIG TIME BUT IT IS STILL PERFECT WALKING WEATHER.

 AT HOME I SHOWER AND SHAVE AND USE MY CELL PHONE TO PLAY SPOTIFY SONGS. OF COURSE , OUR PLAYLIST IS AWESOME. EVEN WHEELS NOW HAS IT ON HER PHONE.

 EARLIER 2 OLDER WOMEN STOP AT PET MAZE. SHE SAYS AS MAZE IS WAGGING HER TAIL VIGOROUSLY , " OF COURSE I AM GOING TO STOP AND PET YOU. OF COURSE I AM. OH MY GOD YOU'RE SO CUTE ! "

 WE CHILL FOR A LITTLE BIT AND THAN HEAD TO LITTLE ITALY RESTAURANT. THEY WERE CLOSED.  NEXT WE DRIVE TO THE RAVIOLI HOUSE BECAUSE SOME PEOPLE IN THE PREVIOUS RESTAURANT PARKING LOT SUGGESTED TO.......THEY WERE CLOSED.  OUR BACK-UP TO OUR BACK-UP WAS A PLACE A FAMILY MEMBER WENT TO JUST LAST WEEK. IT IS PASTA PESTO RESTAURANT.  VERY COOL OUTSIDE MURALS AS WE HEAD INSIDE.  THE MEAL WAS DOWN RIGHT EXCELLENT....FROM SERVICE TO PRICE TO PORTIONS. IN FACT , THE QUANTITY OF FOOD WAS SO LARGE WE WILL GET AT LEAST 2 MORE MEALS OUT OF IT.

 WE ORDERED EGGPLANT AND CHICKEN PARM WITH MUSSELS AND BREAD. SOME BLUES MOONS , RED WINE , AND WATER WAS PERFECT. THE FOOD IS VERY GOOD TO EXCELLENT.  OF COURSE WE ENCOUNTER PEOPLE BECAUSE THEY GRAVITATE TOWARDS US AS A FAMILY MEMBER JUST TOLD US....MOSTLY WHEELS.

PEOPLE STORY 1 - MY CELL PHONE GOES OFF FOR FACETIMING. IT WAS MY ELDEST CHECKING IN. I MAKE IT SUPER QUICK BECAUSE WE ARE IN A RESTAURANT. I TELL HER JUST THAT AND I WILL CALL HER LATER. WHEELS TELLS ME A LADY BEHIND US ABOUT 20 FEET AWAY SPUN IMMEDIATELY AND GAVE A FACE LIKE " ARE YOU FUCKING AN ASSHOLE OR WHAT ? "

 PEOPLE STORY 2 - A COUPLE SITTING ACROSS FROM US COMMENT ON OUR PORTIONS AND WHAT WE ORDERED. WE TALKED FOR AT LEAST 15 MINUTES BACK AND FORTH. I EVEN SAID THE WOMAN LOOKED LIKE A GIRL I WORKED WITH 4 DECADES AGO AT WAWA IN LANSDOWNE. THEY WERE VERY NICE. IT WAS THEIR FIRST TIME THERE TOO.

 OH , THE LIQUOR THEY OFFER AT THE END OF YOUR MEAL WAS EXCELLENT. KINDA LIKE AMARETTO AND FRANGELICO MIXED WITH A HAZEL NUTTY SWEETENER.

 BACK HOME WE ARE GREETED BY CRAZY MAZE. SHE IS JUST A JOY TO BE WITH. WE WALK HER AND SETTLE IN.

 WE WATCH THE PHILLIES LOSE AGAIN AND 3 EPISODES OF NEVER HAVE I EVER. THEY ARE GOOD EPISODES.

 WHILE WATCHING TV I DECIDE TO ENTER A CASH INTERNET POKER GAME. IN NEW JERSEY I CAN PLAY FOR REAL MONEY. AGAIN , I PROVED TO MYSELF I CAN PLAY REAL MONEY GAMES AND MOSTLY...IT WAS FUN ( ESPECIALLY WHEN WINNING ). HERE IS SOME DETAILS ACTION HANDS :

 - THE TOURNAMENT IS A $5 BUY-IN WITH A CHANCE TO RE-BUY TWICE IF ELIMINATED WITHIN THE FIRST 90 MINUTES. A LITTLE OVER 150 PLAYERS BY THE TIME RE-BUY CLOSES.

 - IT IS ALSO A BOUNTY KNOCK-OUT STYLE GAME. IF YOU ELIMINATE A PLAYER YOU GET A $1.17 PUT INTO YOUR ACCOUNT. DURING THE ENTIRE MATCH I KNOCKED OUT 6 PLAYERS.

 - MY FAVORITE KNOCK OUTS WAS A 3 WAY HAND. ONE GUY HAD ACE HIGH WITH A FLUSH DRAW , ANOTHER GUY WITH 2 PAIR , AND ME PAYING $250 TO SEE ANOTHER CARD ON THE " TURN ". WELL , I HIT MY INSIDE STRAIGHT. THE RIVER CARD WAS LEFT AND ONE PLAYER BETS , ANOTHER RAISES , AND I RE-RAISE THEM ALL-IN. I GET 2 BOUNTIES FOR KNOCKING THEM OUT OF THE TOURNAMENT.

 - IT DOESN'T TAKE LONG FOR ME TO RUN INTO A BUZZ SAW. THE BOARD IS ACE , KING , KING , 8 , 8. I HAVE A KING FOR A FULL HOUSE. UNFORTUNATELY , MY OPPONENT HAD QUAD 8'S. I AM HAPPY I WEATHERED THIS BAD BEAT.

 - I PLAY REALLY EXCELLENT POKER BY BLUFFING , RAISING FOR BLINDS , AND VALUE BETTING.

- THE TOP 23 ENTRANTS " CASH ". I MADE IT TO 23 AND I AM ACTUALLY 3RD IN CHIPS.

 - I MAKE THE FINAL TABLE OF 9 PLAYERS AND I AM 4TH IN CHIPS.  WE WHITTLE DOWN TO 4 PLAYERS AND I AM CHIP LEADER. THAN.........LUCK GETS INVOLVED. UNFORTUNATELY , IT IS ALWAYS BAD LUCK.

 - I CALL A PLAYER'S ALL-IN. I JUST WON A MONSTER POT OFF HIM THE HAND BEFORE. HE HAS ABOUT 70K LEFT IN CHIPS AND I HAVE A LITTLE OVER 400K. IT IS HIS POCKET 2'S VS MY SUITED ACE / JACK. THE FLOP IS 4 , ACE , 10. I AM AHEAD BIG TIME BY HITTING MY ACE FOR A PAIR. THE " TURN " IS A 7 OF SPADES. THERE ARE 2 SPADES ON THE BOARD AND I AM HOLDING ACE / JACK OF SPADES FOR A NUT FLUSH DRAWER. SO I AM 98% FAVORITE TO WIN THIS HAND WITH MY PAIRED ACE AND A FLUSH DRAW. HE HAS POCKET 2'S BUT IF THE 2 OF SPADES COMES OUT ON THE " RIVER " CARD I WILL BEAT HIS TRIPS WITH MY FLUSH.

 - SO..........THE ABSOLUTELY ONLY CARD HE CAN WIN WITH IS A 2 OF HEARTS. YEP , JUST A " ONE OUTER " AS THEY CALL IT. YEP....ONLY THE 2 OF HEARTS CAN BEAT ME OUT OF THE ENTIRE DECK.

 - HE HITS THE 2 OF HEARTS.

 - I LOSE ANOTHER BIG HAND. MY ACE/KING TO AN OPPONENTS KING / TEN. AGAIN , I HAVE THE BEST HAND AND COMPLETELY DOMINATE. HE HITS A TEN ON THE RIVER.

 - ONE PLAYER GETS ELIMINATED SO IT IS DOWN TO 3 PLAYERS. I BUILD MY CHIPS BACK TO ALMOST EVEN AND THAN.......5 CRAZY HANDS BETWEEN THE 3 OF US HAPPEN. ME BEING BAD BEATED ON MOST OF THEM.

 - MY FINAL ALL-IN IS MY ACE / 6 VERSE POCKET 5'S. I NEED AN ACE , 6 , OR ANY HEART FOR A FLUSH. OF COURSE THE 5 CRAZY PERVIOUS HANDS MY OPPONENTS HIT ON ALL OF THEM. THIS HAND.....I LOSE AND AM ELIMINATED 3RD.

 I AM SEMI-OKAY BECAUSE IT WAS FUN AND OVERALL I WON THE 3RD PLACE PURSE OF $35 PLUS 6 BOUNTIES OF $7 ROUGHLY. I MADE $42 DOLLARS FOR A $5 BUY-IN. ITS SMALL AND STUPID BUT IT WAS FUN ON A COMPETITIVE LEVEL.

 OFF TO BED AFTER MIDNIGHT. I SLEPT DECENT. THE PUP JOINED ME AROUND 3AM.

  TUESDAY     5 - 25 - 21

 ONE FOR TWO.....AGAIN PEOPLE ARE ASSHOLES.

 START MORNING DOING LITTLE PROJECTS. ONE WAS CUTTING THE LAWN HERE. I BROUGHT A 2ND LAWN MOWER TO STORE UNTIL WE GET A LAWN SERVICE COMPANY. TO ME , IT MAKES ZERO SENSE TO HIRE SOMEONE SINCE WE HAVE VOLUNTEERS BUT EVERYTHING NEEDS TO BE VOTED ON. ANYWAY , I WEED WHACKED , EDGED , AND LEAF BLEW. THE GRASS IS BONE DRY SO IT WAS EVEN EASIER TO CUT THAN LAST TIME. I WAS DONE IN UNDER 5 MINUTES.

 I TALKED TO A FELLOW OWNER NEXT DOOR. HE WAS COOL AND TOLD ME HE KNOWS " MATTY ICE " ( EAGLES QUARTERBACK FROM ATLANTA ). APPARENTLY THE FAMILY HAS A PLACE ON 10TH STREET. HE ALSO TOLD ME THEY WERE BEING SO OVERCHARGED FOR LAWN MAINTENANCE THEY PUT STONE IN THEIR FRONT ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO. HE SAID IT WAS WORTH IT.

 I CLEAN UP AND CHILL INSIDE FOR A BIT.

 AGAIN THE WORKERS ARE DOUBLE TIMING IT ON THE BEACH. I TOOK THE PUP UP THERE AND AGAIN SAW DOLPHINS BOBBING UP AND DOWN IN THE SAME AREA OF OCEAN. IT WAS PRETTY COOL.

 FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE 1 - A LADY COMMUNICATES OK ABOUT ME PICKING UP A DRESSER FOR OUR YOUNGEST ROOM MATE. SHE IS NOT GIVING ME AN ADDRESS WHICH IS SUSPICIOUS. I TELL HER IS 7PM OKAY AFTER WE HAVE DINNER. SHE SAYS , " YES . "  I MESSAGE HER THREE TIMES DURING DINNER AND 2 OF THE MESSAGES ARE " SEEN ". SHE TOTALLY GHOSTED ME AND NEVER REPLIED WITH AN ADDRESS.

  FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE  2 - A 2ND MOTEL IS GETTING RID OF FURNITURE TO REPLACE.  I SAW A POST JUST 1 HOUR OLD. IT TOOK THE WOMAN 1 HOUR TO RESPOND WHICH I WILL NEVER GET IN A MILLION YEARS BUT........I DROVE OUT AT 9:30PM TO PICK UP A DRESSER , NIGHT STAND , OFFICE CHAIR , AND SMALL OLD TV.

 WHEELS ASKS ME " HOW MUCH DID ALL OF THIS COST ? " I RESPOND , " I ONLY DO FREE BABY ".

 WALK THE PUP ALONG THE BEACH TO THE DOG PARK. THE TRUCKS START AT 6AM AND END AT 3PM. SO IT WAS ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL. I TOLD MYSELF TO JUST TAKE MY TIME WALKING AND ENJOY THE MOMENT.....AND I DID. IN FACT , I ENJOYED THESE MOMENTS TOO MUCH BECAUSE I LOST TRACK OF TIME.

 WE HAVE DINNER WITH A FRIEND SCHEDULED FOR 5PM. I AM HAVING SUCH A GOOD TIME AT THE DOG PARK I LOST TRACK OF TIME. ONE YOUNG COUPLE WHO ARE BIG PHILLIES FANS WERE VERY NICE. I HEARD THE TIME OF 4:45PM AND IMMEDIATELY CALLED WHEELS TO PICK ME UP. THERE IS NO WAY I COULD WALK BACK IN 15 MINUTES. SHE GETS ME RIGHT AWAY.

 CHANGE AND WE DRIVE TO THE DECK. IT IS $2 TUESDAY TACO NIGHT. OUR FRIEND KNOWS THE CHEF SO I THINK HE REALLY PACKS THE TACOS FOR HER AND US. DRAFTS WERE ALSO $2. OUR FRIEND PAID THE WHOLE BILL WHICH I DID NOT LIKE.

 BACK HOME WE WALK AROUND THE BACK ALLEYS TO CHECK A/C COMPRESSORS. APPARENTLY A FIRE CHIEF INSPECTOR NEXT DOOR AT THE HOTEL JUST HAPPEN TO SEE OUR A/C'S AND SAID 2 NEED TO HAVE SUPPORTS REPLACED. GEE , GUESS WHO WAS ONE OF THE TWO ?

  WE SETTLE IN AND WATCH OUR PHILLIES WIN A 2 - 0 SHUT OUT GAME. VALESQUEZ DID VERY GOOD PITCHING AGAIN. HE HAS BEEN RIDICULED FOR A LONG TIME AND ONE MIAMI FAN HECKLED HIM BY YELLING " YOU'RE A HIGH SCHOOL PITCHER." YOU KNOW MOST OF HIS TIME AS A PHILLIE I WOULD AGREE WITH THAT FAN.

 WE WATCH AN EPISODE OF CHERNOBYL. I SWEAR THE THINGS THE RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT DOES TO COVER THINGS UP IS UNTHINKABLE. I DO HAVE THE FEELING OUR GOVERNMENT DOES THE SAME THING THOUGH.

 WATCH ANOTHER EPISODE OF NEVER HAVE I EVER WITH JOHN MCENROE NARRATING. IT IS CLEVER AND WRITING PRETTY GOOD.

 SCHEDULED ANOTHER SIDE JOB. THIS ONE MAY BE 2 DAYS.

 ALOT OF NEWS COVERAGE ON THE FRIENDS 25 YEAR RE-UNION SPECIAL SCHEDULED FOR TOMORROW ON HBO MAX. IT WILL BE PRETTY MUCH EXACTLY LIKE THE FRESH PRINCE RE-UNION WHERE THE ORIGINAL ACTORS TALK ABOUT THE EXPERIENCES AND SHOW OLD FILM CLIPS. SOME INTERVIEWS WERE DONE AND EVERYONE LOOKS EXCELLENT EXCEPT " CHANDLER " AKA MATTHEW PERRY. I THINK HE MIGHT OF HAD A STROKE OR SOMETHING. " JOEY " AKA MATTHEW LEBLANC DID PUT ON 75 POUNDS BUT WHO HASN'T ?

 OFF TO BED AND SLEPT DECENT.

   WEDNESDAY    5 - 26 - 21

  WELP........GOTTA HEAD WEST. OF COURSE IT IS A BEAUTIFUL DAY.

  OUR BEACH IS OPEN AND THE WORKERS ARE STILL DOUBLE TIMING IT.  I KINDA LIKE THEY START BEFORE 6AM AND OUR DONE BY 3PM OR EARLIER.

 WALK THE PUP AND SHE GETS TO PLAY WITH ANOTHER PUPPY BEING WALKED.

 CONTACTED THE CHIEF OF THE LOCAL FIRE DEPARTMENT. I FELT SILLY ASKING BY HE DID CONFIRM WE CAN KEEP A LAWN MOWER IN OUR LITTLE CONCRETE STORAGE CLOSET.

  REPLACE A MISSING PIECE OF SIDING AND HOSE DOWN AN A/C CONDENSER IN OUR BACK ALLEY.

 I HATE LOADING AND UNLOADING BY MYSELF. I CURSE AT THIS 100 TIMES AND ASK WHEELS , " DO YOU KNOW I HATE LOADING ? " SHE ALWAYS GIVES ME THE SAME SARCASTIC ANSWER.

 ON THE ROAD AND LISTENING TO OUR SPOTIFY.....NICE. WE DRIVE ALONG THE BEACH AND I WONDER WHY THE HELL AM I LEAVING ?

 WE STOP AT OUR YOUNGEST ROW HOME RENTAL. A WONDERFUL TREAT WAS 2 LOCAL FRIENDS WERE THERE VISITING. I ADORE THESE KIDS. WE DROPPED OFF 2 NIGHT STANDS , A DRESSER , TOILET PAPER , AND AN OFFICE DESK SWIVEL CHAIR.....ALL FREE. THEY THANKED US AND WE CHILLED WITH THEM FOR ABOUT AN HOUR. MAZE WAS LOVING IT.

 WE GIVE A FRIEND WHO I LOVE A RIDE TO HER CAR AND SHE FORGETS WHERE SHE PARKED. I LOVE HANGING WITH THIS KID BECAUSE YOU EVER KNOW WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT WITH HER.

 WE ROLL HOME AND UNLOAD. WE HIT A LITTLE BIT OF RAIN BUT NOTHING BAD. WHAT WAS BAD WAS HOW OUR ELDEST LEFT OUR HOME......FOOD AND BEDDING ALL OVER THE PLACE. GUESS WHO'S BEDDING ? SHE SAID SHE DID NOT KNOW WE WERE COMING HOME. I GUESS OUR TEXT AT 6PM WAS A LITTLE TOO EARLY TO SEE.

 PHILLIES F'N BLOW LEAD AGAIN. IT IS PAINFUL TO WATCH.

 76ERS WITH A BIG CONVINCING WIN AND KEPT THE WIZARDS AT ARMS LENGTH THE WHOLE GAME. OF COURSE A FAN THROWS POPCORN ON A WIZARD PLAYER LEAVING THE GAME. JESUS , THE WHOLE INTERNET AND TV SPORTS NEWS BLEW UP. ANOTHER PHILLY BLACK EYE.

 BY 10PM I COULD NOT STAY AWAKE. OFF TO BED AND WOKE UP AT LEAST 5 TIMES....BLOW.

 THURSDAY     5 - 27 - 21

 ELDEST - " DAD , CAN YOU FIND ME A SLEEPING BAG ? I AM GOING CAMPING TOMORROW. "

 ME - " GIVE ME A MINUTE. "

 ONE MINUTE PASSES - " GO TO HAVERTOWN NEAR HAVERFORD HIGH SCHOOL AND YOUR GRAND PARENT'S HOUSE. A VERY NICE WOMAN HAS A BRAND NEW FLEECE LINED SLEEPING BAG....NEVER USED. "

 OUR ELDEST PICKED IT UP AT 8PM. SHE SAID THE WOMAN WAS SUPER COOL. FB MARKETPLACE STRIKES AGAIN.

 FACETIME WITH OUR YOUNGEST...ALWAYS FUNS.

 SATURDAY 7:30PM LIVE MUSIC RETURNS TO THE NAIL. CAN'T BELIEVE IT HAS BEEN OVER A YEAR. BAND PERFORMING IS PERLIN NOISE.

 A NICE MOTORCYCLE RIDE TO THE NAIL. I DID SOME STUFF AND FIND OUR ICE MACHINE IS EMPTY.....CRAP.

 PHILLIES HANG ON WITH A LUCKY ( WE'LL TAKE IT ) DOUBLE PLAY TO END THE GAME AND WIN 2 - 1.

 ELDEST AND I GO TO PICK UP A UTILITY TRAILER FULL OF CUT FIRE PIT WOOD. THE GUY WAS SUPER COOL AND REMINDED ME OF OUR COUSINS WAY UP IN NORTHERN PENNSYLVANIA.  HE HELPED US LOAD WOOD INTO A WHEEL BARREL AND A DOLLY.  THIS QUICKEN THE PACE BIG TIME. OH , IT WAS FB MARKETPLACE AGAIN......FREE AGAIN.

 BACK HOME WE UNLOAD THE WOOD IN THE BACK YARD BY THE GARAGE. I DROVE THE JEEP + THE TRAILER RIGHT ON THE LAWN AND BACKED UP TO THE GARAGE. I FREAKIN' LOVE THIS TRAILER !!

 A NICE DINNER OUT ON THE PATIO. " M " IS SO FUNNY TO BE WITH AND I LOVE HAVING HER AROUND. HER BOYFRIEND AND FRIEND STOPPED OVER LATER TO HAVE  A BBQ.....ON OUR GRILL. I ASKED FOR A HOT DOG AND 46 MINUTES LATER I GOT ONE. I HAVE TO SAY.....IT WAS DAMN GOOD. HOTDOG WITH CHEESE IN IT AND THE BUN SLIGHTLY TOASTED.

 " M " FOUND A BRYN MAWR APARTMENT FOR RENT. SHE MOVES IN VERY SOON. WE WERE HAPPY SHE IS STAYING IN THE AREA AND NOT MANAYUNK.

 WE WATCH THE SEASON FINALE OF CHERNOBYL. IT WAS VERY GOOD.

 WE WATCH THE FRIENDS RE-UNION PLUS EXTRA INTERVIEWS. IT WAS VERY GOOD. SOME UPDATES IF WATCHING :

 COURTNEY COX AKA MONICA - HAD PLASTIC SURGERY AND REGRETS IT. IT DOES NOT LOOK GOOD. SHE IS IN THE MIDDLE OF REVERSING THE ENTIRE PROCESS. ALL FILLERS HAVE BEEN REMOVED...WHATEVER THAT MEANS.

 JENNIFER ANISTON AKA RACHEL - STILL PIECE OF ASS.

 LISA KUDROW AKA PHOEBE - STILL PIECE OF ASS.

 MATT LEBLANC AKA JOEY - GAINED ABOUT 60 POUNDS. I KNOW I AM FAT BUT IF YOU TOLD ME I WAS DOING A RE-UNION SHOW IN FRONT OF A LIVE AUDIENCE AND MILLIONS OF PEOPLE.....I LOSE THE WEIGHT BIG TIME.

 DAVID SCHWIMMER AKA ROSS - STILL PIECE OF ASS.

 MATHEW PERRY AKA - CHANDLER - AT FIRST WE THOUGHT HE HAD A STROKE OR DRUNK OR BOTH. IT WAS NEITHER. APPARENTLY , JUST HOURS BEFORE TAPING HE HAD EMERGENCY JAW AND TEETH SURGERY.

 AGAIN , OVERALL IT WAS VERY GOOD TO GO DOWN MEMORY LANE .....IF A FRIENDS FAN.

 OFF TO BED THINKING OF A LONG SIDE JOB TOMORROW......UGH.

 FRIDAY       5 - 28 - 21

  DECIDED TO START SIDE JOB A DAY EARLIER BECAUSE OF COOL WEATHER. IT'S A BIGGER SIDE JOB BUT IT ACTUALLY WENT PERFECT FOR ME.

 START MORNING OUT BY HELPING OUR ELDEST PACK FOR A VACATION TO ASSATEAGUE ISLAND. WE LOAD UP AND I DRIVE HER TO HER BEST FRIENDS HOUSE " M ". I ADORE THIS KID. I TALK WITH THE PARENTS FOR OVER 30 MINUTES ALONG WITH THE YOUNGEST SISTER WHO I JUST SAW AT OUR YOUNGEST DAUGHTER'S APARTMENT YESTERDAY. FOR 21 YEARS THEY HAVE BEEN TRAVELING TO THIS ISLAND FOR VACATION.

 WE LOAD THEM UP AND GIVE OUR ELDEST MY WAWA AND GAS CARD. I TOLD HER TO TREAT EVERYONE TO COFFEE AND FILL BOTH CAR FUEL TANKS.  SHE TEXTED US THEY ARRIVED AND THE WEATHER WAS VERY NICE THERE. THEY HAD A FIRE PIT GOING , RV WAS DELIVERED TO THEM ON SITE , AND THE WILD HORSES WERE LITERALLY 15 FEET AWAY.

 ARRIVE IN PAOLI AND I TALK TO THE CUSTOMERS. I HAVE BEEN HERE AT LEAST 10 TIMES.  WE CATCH UP ON THE LAST YEAR AND I FIND OUT THEY WERE IN A HEAD ON COLLISION ON INTERSTATE 95 LAST SUMMER. THEY HAD TO BE HOSPITALIZED FOR A BROKEN STERNUM AND IMPACTED BACK BONE VERTEBRAE. THIS IS SOME SERIOUS SHIT. A DRIVER ENTERED THEIR LANE THE WRONG WAY....HE DIED. THEIR FATHER-IN-LAW STRONGLY SUGGESTED RENTING A VERY LARGE SUBURBAN S.U.V FOR THEIR VACATION TRIP TO FLORIDA.......IT SAVED THEIR LIVES. THEY EVEN GOT THE INSURANCE ON THE VEHICLE WHICH PEOPLE RARELY DO.

 THEY LOST THEIR DOG WHO I HAVE MET MANY TIMES......AN ABSOLUTE SWEET HEART. THEY PUT HER DOWN AT 15 YEARS OLD. THEY DID THE SAME AS ME AND GOT A PUPPY.

 I FINISHED THESE PROJECTS ONLY BECAUSE OF A MISS-ORDER OF A WINDOW. ANYWAY , HERE IS WHAT WAS DONE TODAY :

 - PUTTIED GARAGE DOOR BOTTOMS. THIS TOOK SOME TIME BUT IT CAME OUT REALLY NICE. IT DID NOT DRY TO MY LIKING BECAUSE OF RAIN AND COOL WEATHER. BUT , I BLUE TAPED OUT EVERYTHING , LIGHTLY SANDED , AND ADDED A HARDENING LIQUID.

 - PUTTIED THE SAME WAY FOR A 2ND FLOOR WINDOW.

 - HUNG 3 PICTURES.

 - REPLACED MANY STAINED BASEMENT CEILING TILES AND VACUUMED.

 - EVALUATED WHY A 1ST LEVEL FLOOR WAS WARPED. I HAD TO OPEN UP THE CEILING IN BASEMENT.

 - HUNG 3 SETS OF DOUBLE CLOSET DOORS.

 - A TRASH CAN CABINET WAS NOT CLOSING. WE COULD NOT FIX LAST TIME. I CAME UP WITH A MACGYVER. I TOOK EVERYTHING OUT , MOVED SLIDER RAILS BACK , AND ANGLED THEM A BIT. IT ACTUALLY WORKED PERFECT.

 - FIXED A TOILET PAPER HOLDER. I SPENT WAY TOO MUCH TIME ON THIS. THE HOLDING SCREW WAS STRIPPED. THIS WAS A HECK OF A MACGYVER TO FIX THIS.

 - REMOVED A MAIN ROOM CARPET ,  PADDING , 1/4" UNDERLAYMENT , AND 2 INCH WIDE SUB-FLOORING. THERE WAS A SOFT SPOT IN THE FLOOR BOTHERING THE HUSBAND. I ADDED 4 SISTER STUDS AND 2 PLYWOOD SUPPORTS. I THAN HAD TO RE-INSTALL EVERYTHING I REMOVED. I HAD TO REMOVE OVER 100 STAPLES FROM THE SUB-FLOORING. I HAD THEIR KID HELP ME. HE WAS ACTUALLY HELPFUL WHEN WE HAD TO PUZZLE PIECE EVERYTHING BACK TOGETHER.

 THE BEST THING I DID WAS BRING EXTRA WOOD , PURCHASE A TON OF SCREWS WEEKS AGO  ( HELPED ME 10X SO FAR ) , AND PRE-PLAN EVERYTHING BEFORE ARRIVAL.

 CLEAN UP , LOAD UP TOOLS ( kid helps me again ) , AND ROLL OUT. CUSTOMER TIPPED ME $50 AND GAVE ME AN ITALIAN HOAGIE WITH A 1/4 PINT OF MACARONI SALAD. 

 ROLL HOME AND GLAD I COMPLETED THIS SIDE JOB.

 I ARRIVE HOME JUST AS WHEELS COMES IN FROM WALKING WITH A FRIEND. OF COURSE I AM GREETED BY THE PUP.

 WHEELS PULLS A FB MAKRETPLACE WITHOUT TELLING ME......SNEAKY.  SHE GOT A VERY NICE SMALL CARPET FOR OUR YOUNGEST. PICK UP WAS IN HAVERTOWN.

 A NICE DINNER OF A HALF A CHEESE STEAK AND WHEELS HAD A HALF OF MY ITALIAN HOAGIE.

 PLACE A LIQUOR ORDER.

 WE WATCH 2 EPISODES MARE OF EAST TOWN. A LOCAL SHOW FILMED RIGHT HERE IN DELAWARE COUNTY. SO FAR IT IS VERY GOOD. ONE SCENE WAS AT HAVERFORD COLLEGE AT THEIR RADIO STATION. I WAS HOPING WHEN INTERVIEWING A BAND THEY SAY , " YEAH , WE JUST PLAYED THE NAIL DOWN THE STREET ".

 WE START WATCHING AN EPISODE OF NEVER HAVE I EVER AND I CAN'T STAY UP FOR A STINKING 28 MINUTES MORE.

 OFF TO BED.

  SATURDAY      5 - 29 - 21

 THE BAD WEATHER ACTUALLY HELPED US............NICE.

 PHILLIES.......BA.........LOW. ANNNNNNND LOSE AGAIN.

 SOME LITTLE PROJECTS :

 - COVERED OFF-CUT PIECES OF WOOD WITH PLASTIC TARP FROM THE RAIN,

 - WAXED MOTORCYCLE.

 - USED OUR COMPRESSOR TO FILL UP VAN TIRES.

 - CLOSED PATIO UMBRELLAS AND TIED THEM TO SECURE FROM WIND.

   WE HAVE LUNCH AND WATCH AN EPISODE OF MARE OF EASTTOWN. AGAIN....VERY GOOD.

 OFF TO THE NAIL AND IT IS A TOUGH NIGHT TO DRAW PEOPLE BECAUSE OF THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND. I PREP AND CLEAN TO PREPARE FOR THE ARRIVAL OF THE BAND PERLIN NOISE.

  YOUNGEST AND ROOM MATE ARRIVE TO BARTEND. I EXPLAIN THAT THE BAD WEATHER MIGHT ACTUALLY HELP US. PEOPLE WHO WANTED TO BBQ OR HANG OUT OUTSIDE ARE NOW RE-PLANNING.

 WELL .....PEOPLE CAME. A LITTLE OVER 40 PEOPLE SUPPORT THE BAND AND RECEIVED FREE SLEEPING MASKS WITH THE BAND NAME ON IT. OF COURSE WE USED THIS AS A TASTE TESTING OPPORTUNITY. I POSTED A FUNNY FACEBOOK VIDEO OF OUR 2 BARTENDERS ( KENTUCKY & COLEY ) DOING A SHOT TASTE TEST WITH " HOLLYWOOD " !!! IT WAS FUN.

 MUSIC AND PEOPLE WERE GREAT TO SEE AND HEAR. EVERYONE WAS SUPER COOL.

 76ERS CRUSH WIZARDS TO GO UP 3 - 0 IN SERIES. I DID NOT THINK THIS GAME BE THAT EASY. EITHER THE 76ERS ARE REALLY GOOD OR THE WIZARDS ARE REALLY BAD....OR A COMBINATION OF BOTH. EITHER WAY I WAS HAPPY.

 BARTENDERS ARE ADORABLE AND DID A GREAT JOB. I EVEN GOT A VERY CUTE GIRL ASKING FOR A JOB. HOLLYWOOD SAID , " YOU SHOULD HIRE HER. "

 THE FOUR OF US HANG LATE NIGHT AND ORDER A POPPA JOHN'S WHITE PIZZA WITH SPINACH AND SOME KIND OF CHEESE SAUCE TO ADD. I HAVE TO ADMIT IT WAS VERY GOOD.

 BACK HOME WE SETTLE IN. I HEAD TO BED. THE GIRLS DID A GREAT JOB BARTENDING TONIGHT. I WAS SO PLEASED TO SEE SO MANY PEOPLE. I REALLY WAS EXPECTING A SLOW NIGHT DUE TO THE MEMORIAL DAY HOLIDAY.

 OFF TO BED. THE GIRLS TOOK THE PUP.

  SATURDAY    5 - 30 - 21

 IT'S A CRAPPY DAY TO DO ANYTHING , SO LET'S GET INTO IT.

 WHEELS AND I TAKE A RIDE TO WALMART. HOLY CRAP THE LINES WERE NON-STOP. I NEVER SAW IT SO BUSY.

 WHEELS AND I TAKE YOUNGEST AND A FRIEND HOME. WE STOP AT CHILI'S FOR LUNCH. I LOVED TELLING STORIES TO THEM.

 ARRIVE AT THEIR RENTAL HOME TO UNLOAD AND CHILL A LITTLE BIT. I LIKE THE LANDLORD USING TAPE TO FIX A BATHROOM LEAK. IT WAS GREAT SEEING THE KIDS. THEY REALLY SETTLED IN NICELY.

 WHEELS ON THE WAY HOME RECEIVES A PHONE CALL ABOUT HAVING DINNER. LET'S JUST SAY SHE CONTINUES TO MOVE TOWARDS THE DARK SIDE.

 SPENT SOME TIME IN MY BASEMENT PUTTING PACKAGES TOGETHER.

  FB MARKETPLACE 1 - PICKED UP VERY NICE MICROWAVE. ENDS UP THE GUY KNOWS THE NAIL , IS IN A BAND , AND WE KNOW EACH OTHER. I WILL BOOK HIS NEW BAND.

  FB MARKETPLACE 2 - PICKED UP BIRD HOUSE. HARDEST HOUSE EVER TO FIND.

  FB MARKETPLACE 3 - PICKED UP 48" FLAT TV FROM A VERY NICE YOUNG LADY. I THINK SHE WANTED ME.

  FB MARKETPLACE 4 - PICKED UP TWO PS4 CONTROLLERS......EXTREMELY HARD TO FIND. I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR OVER 6 MONTHS. OF COURSE , WE WERE MINUTES FROM OUR HOUSE WHEN THE OLD WOMAN TEXTED ME. WHEELS WAS NOT HAPPY ABOUT MAKING A U-TURN AT 8PM AT NIGHT.

  HOOK-UP 5 - A FRIEND WILL GET ME AN HDMI SPLITTER TOMORROW.

 YES , MY KIDS AND ROOM MATES LOVE ME.

 PHILLIES BLOW AGAIN. IT IS SO PAINFUL TO WATCH.

 UNION WITH A VERY NICE 3 - 0 WIN. I THINK THEY HAVE NEVER WON 3 SHUT-OUT GAMES IN A ROW.

 ELDEST AND FRIENDS DECIDE TO COME HOME A DAY EARLY FROM ASSATEAGUE ISLAND. THE WEATHER WAS VERY BAD AND CHECK-OUT ON MONDAY MORNING WAS AN UNHEARD OF 8AM. THEY MADE THE RIGHT CHOICE BECAUSE THEY MADE GREAT TIME. IT WAS VERY GOOD TO SEE THEM AND THEY ARRIVED HOME SAFELY.

 I FEEL BAD FOR OUR ELDEST AS THE ONLY TIME SHE GOES AWAY TO A COOL ISLAND WITH PONIES AND THE AREA HAS RECORD LOW TEMPERATURES. THIS RECORD WAS BROKEN FROM 1918. SHE SAYS , " YEP , THAT'S OUR LUCK ". I AGREED.

 I AM DOUBTING A FRIEND'S OPINION ON THIS SHOW. HE TOLD ME , " BEST EPISODE EVER FOR SUSPENSE IN ANY TV SERIES. " WE WATCHED THE EPISODE OF MARE OF EAST TOWN. IT WAS GOOD TO VERY GOOD BUT NOT BEST EVER.

 PLAY WITH CRAZY MAZE. SHE IS SO FUNNY.  I TOOK PICTURES AND SENT THEM TO OUR KIDS. HER NEW THING IS TO LEAN AGAINST THE COUCH SIDEWAYS WITH HER HEAD DOWN AND ASS UP IN THE AIR WHILE WHEELS PETS HER BUTT. I TOOK PICTURES BECAUSE IT MADE US LAUGH. LATER I THOUGHT.....I KINDA LIKE WHEELS TO DO THAT.

 A NIGHT CAP OR TWO AND OFF TO BED.  MONDAY IS SUPPOSE TO BE NICE WEATHER.

  MONDAY    5 - 31 - 21

 NOW THIS WEATHER IS MORE LIKE IT.........

 TEMPS ARE COOL SO I HEAD OUTSIDE TO DO MY FAVORITE THING.......WEED. THIS SO MUCH FUN CRAWLING AROUND AND UNDER BUSHES AND TREES. MY HANDS HURT. I TALK TO 2 NEIGHBORS WALKING BY.

 I ALSO DECIDED TO USE A HEDGER ON ALL BUSHES THAT NEEDED TRIMMING. MY HANDS HURT.

 CUT THE LAWNS HERE AND AT A RENTAL PROPERTY. SOME GUY MOVED A BUNCH OF FIRE PIT STUFF TO ALLOW ME TO CUT THE BACK YARD AT THE RENTAL. IT WAS APPRECIATED.

 RIDING MOWER RAN OUT OF GAS. WHILE FILLING A FAIR AMOUNT OF GASOLINE FELL ON THE MOTOR. FOR SAFETY ,  I WAS NOT GOING TO RE-START IT SO I USED THE SELF PROPELLED MOWER TO BUY SOME TIME. LATER IT DID START  WITHOUT CATCHING FIRE AND BLOWING ME UP. THIS IS A GOOD THING.

 PHILLIES LOSE 21 - 1 TO A PITCHER ON THE REDS THAT THROWS A LITTLE BIT FASTER THAN A FRISBEE TOSS.

 A LITTLE BBQ ON A BEAUTIFUL NIGHT....WE HAD OVER A NEPHEW , A NEIGHBOR , MY FAVORITE BARTENDER / FRIEND , AND THAN A LATE NIGHT FIRE PIT WITH A BUNCH OF OUR ELDEST FRIENDS. TWO GIRLS CAME INSIDE TO TALK TO WHEELS AND I....WHICH WAS NICE.

 76ERS LOSE EMBIDD AND SIMMONS MISSES HALF THE " ON PURPOSE " FOUL SHOTS BY THE WIZARDS. IT WAS A GOOD GAME PLAN SINCE HE BLOWS AT SHOOTING. I DO IT THE WHOLE GAME. IN THE PAST TEAMS DID THIS AGAINST SHAQUILLE O'NEIL. THEY CALLED IT " HACK A SHAQ ".

 ALLOW A RENTER TO STAY LATER TO 8PM FOR CHECK-OUT SINCE IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL DAY. HE TEXTS ME AT MIDNIGHT SAYING HE FORGOT HIS FISHING ROD.

 WE FINISH THE LIMITED SERIES OF MARE OF EASTTOWN. THE EPISODE AND FINALE WAS VERY GOOD.

 I WANTED TO GO OUTSIDE TO THE MANY FRIENDS AND FIRE PIT BUT I WAS TOO DAMN TIRED.  MY HANDS HURT AND SO DID MY ASS.........OFF TO BED.

 WOKE UP SEVERAL TIMES WONDERING WHERE ONE CAR WAS. MY KID MOVED IT TO THE BACK OF THE YARD. AT 3AM I WALKED AROUND AND STILL COULD NOT SEE THE CAR FROM THE INSIDE SO I WENT OUTSIDE IN JUST BOXER SHORTS. I FINALLY SAW THE CAR IN THE BACK YARD.

 I PURCHASED MCSORELY'S DOWN THE STREET FROM THE NAIL. MY FIRST MINUTE INSIDE INSPECTING AND I NOTICED THEY WERE SHORT HANDED SO I OFFERED TO HELP BARTEND. OF COURSE , THE FIRST DRINK INVOLVES 12 INGREDIENTS , SUGARING THE GLASS , AND SIFTING THE FINAL POUR. I KEPT ASKING A LOCAL REGULAR FOR THE RECIPE. " M " TOLD ME EACH STEP. I SWEAR IT TOOK 45 MINUTES TO MAKE. I GO TO THE THE CUSTOMER WHEN FINALLY DONE AND HE IS GONE.

 CONTINUED - THE BUILDING IS OLD AND BIG. IT HAS LONG HALLWAYS AND MANY DOORS. I WAS LOOKING AROUND FOR SUPPLIES WHEN SOMEONE STARTED CHASING ME. THEY KEPT YELLING OUT , " HUNT !!! HUNT !!! , GET BACK HERE HUNT !!! " I GOT OUTSIDE TO HAVERFORD ROAD AND THERE WAS ALL KINDS OF TRAFFIC............dream ends.

  TUESDAY   6 - 1 - 21

 I'M HEADING NORTH......NICE.

 HAD POTATO CHIPS WITH THE BBQ YESTERDAY. ANNNNNNNNND GOT A SINGLE PIMPLE. THIS HAS PLAGUED ME MY ENTIRE LIFE. WHAT THE HELL ?

 DID NOT SLEEP THE BEST LAST NIGHT. I TRIED TO RE-SLEEP AT 6AM BECAUSE I HAVE A LONG DAY. I JUST COULD NOT START MY DAY AT 3:30AM AGAIN.

 PREP AND LOAD UP VAN. I LOVE TRAVELING BUT LOADING AND UNLOADING ABSOLUTELY BLOWS.

 BY 9:30AM I AM ON THE ROAD. BOTH STOPS ARE JUST SECONDS FROM THE TURNPIKE. I DID THIS ON PURPOSE.

 1ST STOP IN QUAKERTOWN. I MET A GUY WHO DOES MASSIVE RESTORATION TO HOMES. THIS IS LIKE IF YOUR HOME CAUGHT FIRE AND SUCH. I COULD NOT EVEN IMAGINE. WE TALKED FOR AT LEAST 20 MINUTES.  HE RECOMMENDS PUBLIC ADJUSTERS AND GAVE ME THE BEST INSURANCE COMPANY TO WORK WITH IN A TRAGIC SITUATION.....NATIONWIDE. I GUESS THEY ARE ON YOUR SIDE. HE ALSO TOLD THE WORST INSURANCE COMPANY. I FORGOT THEIR NAME.  IT IS AT LEAST 4 WORDS LONG IN THE BUSINESS NAME. OH , AND MAKE SURE YOUR POLICY HAS A " _ _ _ _ _ _ UPDATE ". THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. YES , I FORGOT THIS TOO. I CAN SUMMARIZE. IF YOU SIGNED WITH YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY 25 YEARS AGO AND THE AGREEMENT TO RE-PAINT YOUR ENTIRE HOUSE IS 25 CENTS A SQUARE FOOT THAT WOULD BE NO WHERE NEAR TODAY'S VALUE TO HAVE THE WORK PERFORMED.......SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

 2ND STOP IS ALLENTOWN. ANOTHER SUPER COOL GUY WHO LOVES DOGS. OF COURSE HE PET MAZE. WE TALKED ABOUT RENTAL PROPERTIES IN THE POCONO AREA FOR ABOUT 10 MINUTES. BOTH STOPS HAD GRASS WHICH WAS GOOD FOR MAZEY.

 3RD STOP IS BURGER KING.  WHAT THE HELL.

 ON THE ROAD AND MAKE GOOD TIME. AS SOON AS I ENTER THE DEVELOPMENT THE FIRST STOP SIGN A DEER COMES ACROSS MY PATH.....NICE.

 LAST RENTER LEFT A LOT OF FIRE WOOD. THIS WILL BE COMING HOME. I LOVE THE OLD LINE , " OH , THAT'S HOW IT WAS WHEN I GOT HERE ". TELL ME WHAT THE EXTREME OBVIOUS ANSWER IS ? IF A COMBINATION TO RETRIEVE A KEY IS 1 2 3 4 AND YOU ARRIVE AND THE LOCK BOX IS LEFT ON 1 2 3 4 ......WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU GOT THE KEY BECAUSE THE LOCK BOX WAS OPEN. WOULDN'T YOU NATURALLY SPIN THE NUMBERS ?

 BEGIN TO UNLOAD ( HATE DOING THAT ) AND SETTLE IN. I START MY PUNCH LISTS. IN LESS THAN 5 MINUTES THE PROJECTS GREW TO 20 THINGS.

 LOADED WOOD IN VAN. I WILL ALSO TAKE HOME NEW KEROSENE CANDLES. I DO NOT WANT ANYTHING TO DO WITH FIRE AT OUR PROPERTY.

 LEAF BLEW THE AWNING ROOF.....YES , GETTING UP THERE ON A 5 FOOT LADDER IN FLIP FLOPS MIGHT NOT BE THE BEST IDEA AND THE MAIN DECK. THE POLLEN DUST AND TREE SEEDLINGS WAS THE WORST I EVER SEEN. I AM SURPRISED RENTERS DO NOT USE THE LEAF BLOWER FOR 5 MINUTES TO CLEAR ALL THE DEBRIS OFF THE DECK TO SIT AT.

 WALK THE PUP AROUND.  SHE PAYS NO ATTENTION TO THE CHIPMUNK OR SQUIRREL WE SEE.

 TEST THE BBQ BY MAKING 2 HOT DOGS FOR DINNER. ICING A BEER IN THE FREEZER FOR 15 MINUTES IS A GOOD THING TOO. A NICE LITTLE DINNER ON THE DECK FACING THE LAKE. THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE I WILL BBQ EVERY DAY HERE.

 ELDEST CALLS ME IN A SUPER NICE VOICE.....ANTENNAS UP. THE ONLY WORD I HEAR WAS " HI ".  I INSTANTLY REPLY , " WHAT EVER IT IS I SAY NO. " WE GO BACK AND FORTH AND I GIVE HER 80 BUCKS.

 WALK THE PUP AGAIN. SOME PEOPLE ARE FISHING. ONE GIRL WALKING HER DOG AROUND THE LAKE WAS NICE TO SEE. YOU REALLY NEED A CERTAIN CONFIDENCE TO WEAR " DAISY DUKES ". SHE HAD THAT CONFIDENCE.

 SETTLE IN AND WATCH THE PHILLIES BATS TURN TO HOT FRIGGIN' GOLD. SEVEN HOME RUNS AND A 19 - 3 WIN. JESUS , WHERE HAVE THESE BATS BEEN ALL SEASON ? WE WILL BE SHUT-OUT THE NEXT 3 GAMES.

 76ERS - SO THE LAST GAME THE HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL TEAM WASHINGTON WIZARDS BEAT US. THIS IS HOW PEOPLE ON SOCIAL MEDIA DESCRIBED THEM. WELL , NOW EMBIID IS OUT. YEP....I CAN SEE WHERE THIS IS GOING.

 I WATCH A MOVIE CALLED THOSE WHO WISH ME DEAD THAT I THOUGHT WOULD BE SO BAD I STOP IT IN 5 MINUTES.   ANGELINA JOLIE WE ALL KNOW IS AN ABSOLUTELY PIECE OF ASS...........20 YEARS AGO. JESUS , SHE IS SO DAMN SKINNY I BELIEVE NOTHING SHE DOES PHYSICALLY. JOHN BERNTHAL...NOT A FAMILIAR NAME BUT YOU WOULD KNOW HIM ON THE WALKING DEAD OR THE PUNISHER. HE IS A SUPER BAD ASS.....BUT NOT IN THIS MOVIE.

  MY LITTLE ASSESSMENT OF THIS MOVIE ABOUT A FEMALE FIRE JUMPER CAUGHT IN A HUGE MURDER HIT ON A YOUNG BOY. THE INFORMATION HE HAS CHANGES THE WORLD AND INDICTS MOST OF OUR GOVERNMENT. THE 2 HIT MEN ( ONE FROM PEAKY F'N BLINDERS !! ) ARE ACTUALLY BAD ASS. THE SPECIAL EFFECTS OF A RAGING FOREST FIRE ARE VERY GOOD. I DID NOT KNOW A FOREST FIRE COULD TRAVEL FASTER THAN FULL RUNNING SPEED AND  IMPLODE EVERYTHING IN ITS WAY. OVERALL , THE MOVIE INTRIGUED ME AND LUCKILY IT WAS ONLY 90 MINUTES LONG. I THOUGHT IT WAS SEMI-OKAY TO A LITTLE BIT BETTER THAN SEMI-OKAY.

 THE ROKU TV HERE BASICALLY HAS EVERYTHING ON IT....NETLFIX , DISNEY , HULU , ETC.  RENTERS LOG-IN AND FORGET TO LOG-OUT.

 WIND DOWN WITH SOME LIBATIONS. I HEAD UPSTAIRS TO MAKE MY BED AND END THE NIGHT WATCHING HOGAN'S HEROES. MAN I WOULD OF LOVED TO HAVE A BEER WITH SCHULTZ.

 A REALLY COOL DREAM.........THAT I TOTALLY FORGOT.

 FOUND OUT TODAY A COUSIN , YOUNGER THAN ME , DIED OF LUNG CANCER. LIFE IS SHORT MY FRIENDS SO PLEASE STOP BEING A DICK.

 WEDNESDAY    6 - 2 - 21

  I LIKE YOU TO MEET " BO "..............

 TODAY I WENT INTO FIX MODE.  IT IS JUST AMAZING IN A FEW SHORT MONTHS SO MUCH NEEDS TO BE DONE.

 THE PUNCH LIST :

 - A FAIR AMOUNT OF CEILING AND UNDER CABINET LIGHTS WERE OFF. I THOUGHT THE GOOD THING IS I HAVE A TON OF BULBS. THE BAD THING.........HOW DID SO MANY GO OFF ALL AT ONCE ? WELL , I QUICKLY FOUND THE ANSWER......RENTERS. I ALWAYS FIND IT FASCINATING THAT RENTERS CHANGE AND MOVE SHIT AND DO NOT PUT IT BACK WHEN LEAVING. ANYWAY , RENTERS SPUN LOOSE LIGHT BULBS TO MAKE THEM GO OFF. I SPUN THEM ALL BACK ON.

 - I HAVE NO IDEA WHY I DO THIS - I USE MY WET/DRY VAC AND SUCK UP MOTHS , MOSQUITOES , BEETLES , AND ANY OTHER ANNOYING INSECT UNDER OUR AWNING. MOSTLY I DO IT IN THE EARLY MORNING AND RIGHT BEFORE I GO TO BED. I THINK IT HELPS CONTROLLING THE BILLION POPULATION.

 - SINCE I HAD THE WET/DRY VAC OUT I WENT ALONG EDGES OF INTERIOR BED ROOMS , KITCHEN , FOYER , AND MAIN ROOM.

 - FORGOT MY DAMN CHARGER FOR MY SCREW GUN.....THIS TOTALLY BLOWS. I UNSCREW THE BOARDS BY HAND TO ACCESS THE CRAWL SPACE. I PULL OUT A LADDER , LAWN MOWER , AND GAS CAN.

 - I CUT THE LAWN , PICK UP CIGARETTE BUTTS , REMOVE A SMALL FALLEN TREE OVER OUR DRIVEWAY RAILING , AND RAKE THE HORSE SHOE PITS.

 - THERE IS A TON OF DEER HERE TODAY. I JUMPED A COUPLE WHILE PLAYING WITH MAZE. I HAD HER OFF-LEASH AND SHE WAS FUNNY RUNNING AROUND ME. I SENT A VIDEO TO THE FAMILY. WHEN SHE JUMPS SMALL HILLS IT IS SO COOL TO WATCH HER FLY THROUGH THE AIR.

 - MOVED ALL MAROON DINING ROOM CHAIRS TO DIFFERENT PLACES IN THE HOUSE....MOSTLY BEDROOMS. SO NOT FUN GOING UP AND DOWN STEPS 5 TIMES.

 - FLIPPED THE NEW WAYFAIR DINING ROOM TABLE BECAUSE IT WAS WOBBLY ON THE ENDS. USING CUT CARPET PIECES LIKE SHIMS I WEDGED 4 OF THEM ON THE 4 EDGES. IT WORKED PERFECT. I SECURED THE TABLE AND FLIPPED IT BACK UPRIGHT.

 - I BROUGHT UP 4 DINING ROOM CHAIRS FROM HOME THAT I GOT OFF FB MARKETPLACE A MONTH AGO AND RE-UPHOLSTER THEM. I BROUGHT IN A BLUE CHAIR FROM A HALLWAY AND SET ALL 5 CHAIRS AROUND THE TABLE. IT ACTUALLY LOOKS GOOD. IT IS THE BEST I GOT THE CHAIRS TO MATCH THE TABLE AFTER 3 TRIES.

 - A WOMAN GHOSTS ME AFTER 8 EMAILS BACK AND FORTH. WE WERE COMMUNICATING EVERY 5 MINUTES........THAN NOTHING FOR 6 HOURS. I LEFT A CELL PHONE NUMBER TWICE , CALLED A POST OFFICE FOR HER FOR DELIVERY , AND 2 MORE EMAILS...........STILL NOTHING. SIX HOURS LATER AT DINNER SHE TEXTS ME SHE WANTS TO MAKE A DEAL. I DECIDED NOT TO DO IT WITH HER AND INVOLVED ANOTHER NICE WOMAN FROM SCRANTON. WE WILL SEE WHAT HAPPENS TOMORROW WITH THE FB MARKETPLACE DEAL. I AM 90% SURE IT WILL GO DOWN.

 - THE RAIN COMES AND I SCRAMBLE TO PUT THE BBQ AND LADDER UNDER THE AWNING AND PLACE THE LAWN MOWER BACK UNDER THE CRAWL SPACE. YEP.....ALWAYS SOMETHING. I THOUGHT IT BE NICE WEATHER ALL WEEK BUT IT IS OVERCAST. NEAR DINNER TIME THE SUN DID PEEK OUT.

 - LATE AFTERNOON I FORCE MYSELF TO WORK ON A TOILET MISSING A PART. I AM RUNNING OUT OF DAYS FOR SO MANY PROJECTS. I REMOVE A TANK , REPLACE A SEAL , AND SECURE THE TOILET AS BEST AS I COULD. IT IS MUCH BETTER.

 - SECURED A 1ST FLOOR TOILET BASE TO THE TILE FLOOR.

 - FIXED A SCREEN ON A SLIDING DOOR TO THE BALCONY DECK AS BEST I COULD. IT IS DEFINITELY 75% BETTER.

 - CLEANED A DRYER LINT TRAP.

 - TEXT MY DAUGHTER AND FRIENDS WHICH CANOE HAS A LEAK...RED OR BLUE ? OF COURSE ONE SAYS RED AND THE OTHER SAYS BLUE. I LEAF BLOW AND WIPE DOWN BOTH CANOES. I USE " FLEX SEAL ( WHICH NEVER WORKS ) ON BOTH. I WILL DO A 2ND COAT TOMORROW SINCE IT STARTED RAINING.

 - LEAF BLOW UPPER DECK AND WIPE TABLE AND CHAIRS DOWN.

 - FACETIME WITH FAMILY.....ALWAYS FUN AND STILL JUST AMAZES ME. MY ELDEST NOW WANTS TO COME HERE. I PRACTICALLY BEGGED THE KID TO RIDE WITH ME 10X 3 DAYS AGO. WELP , WE DECIDED HER STAYING HOME FOR NOW IS BETTER.

 - CLEANED AND WIPED DOWN BBQ. I ALSO EMPTIED THE GREASE CATCHER. MAZE OFFERED TO EMPTY IT BUT I DECIDED HER WAY AND MY WAY WERE MUCH DIFFERENT. I REALLY LIKE I REMOVED THE ROTTED TREE THROUGH THE DECK WHEN I WAS HERE LAST.

 THERE WERE OTHER THINGS BUT I FORGET......JUST LIKE 3 REALLY GOOD DREAMS LAST NIGHT. I REALLY WANT TO GET MY TAPE RECORDER TO REMEMBER THESE WHEN I WAKE UP.

 FACETIMING WITH MY KIDS I ASKED , " WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU WERE ME ? " AFTER FUN JOKES GOING BACK AND FORTH AND AVOIDING MY QUESTION.........THEY BOTH AGREED THEY WOULD GO.

 I GRAB A BOX WINE OF MERLOT AND HEAD TO MY FAVORITE PLACE TO DINE.....CHARLIE WEAVERS RESTAURANT. I SWEAR I CAN NOT FIND A BETTER PLACE FOR A GREAT  MEAL. I SAT AT THE BAR AND SOON HAD 2 LOCAL COUPLES WHO KNEW THE OWNERS MUCH BETTER THAN ME. THEY WERE REALLY NICE AND ALL OF US TALKED FOR ABOUT 90 MINUTES.

 I AM AT THE RESTAURANT AND MY CELL GOES OFF. IT IS MY NEIGHBOR TEXTING ME , " I JUST SAW YOUR CAR GO BY ME. THIS IS WHAT WENT THROUGH YOUR YARD AND NOW IN MINE. " HE SENT ME A PICTURE OF A LARGE BLACK BEAR HE NAMED " BO ". I SHOWED IT TO THE PEOPLE I WAS WITH AT CHARLIE WEAVERS. I ALSO SENT A PICTURE TO MY FAMILY AND POSTED IT ON SOCIAL MEDIA.

 WE ALL HAD THE SAME SPECIAL...BEEF STROGANOFF ( 12 BUCKS ). THE MEAT WAS SUPER TENDER AND LARGE CHUNKS AND JUST OUTSTANDING. PORTIONS WERE BIG ALONG WITH MY MUSSELS IN A WHITE WINE BROTH AND 2 ORDERS OF BREAD. OF COURSE I HAD A PIECE OF BLUE BERRY CHEESE CAKE.

 OH , ALL FOOD HAD PICTURES TAKEN OF IT AND SENT TO THE KIDS. I HAD TO RUB IT IN A LITTLE BIT.......LOL.

 I HAD A WONDERFUL TIME CHILLING WITH THE OWNERS , LOCALS , AND OF COURSE THE FOOD.

 ROLL OUT AND STOP AT GAS STATION TO FUEL UP.

 ARRIVE HOME AND MAZE IS SUPER EXCITED TO SEE ME. I WALK AND FEED HER. TEMPERATURES ARE JUST PERFECT AND THE SUN DECIDED TO GIVE ME ONE LAST LOOK UNTIL SETTING.

 I HAD MY DOUBTS BUT THE 76ERS ( WITHOUT EMBIID ) TURNED ON THE DEFENSE BURNERS AND CLOSED OUT THE SERIES WITH WASHINGTON. 76ERS WIN 4 GAMES TO 1. NEXT...THE ATLANTA HAWKS WHO PRETTY MUCH KICKED OUR ASS ALL SEASON.

 PHILLIES DID NOT LOSE. THEY ALSO DID NOT WIN........RAIN OUT.

 I FLIPPED AROUND THE TV AND ROKU. I JUST COULD NOT GET INTO ANYTHING. BY 10PMISH I WAS HEADING TO BED WITH THE PUP. SO , THE OLD TRUSTED SHOW FOR ENTERTAINMENT.....HOGAN'S HEROES. I WAS SURPRISED BECAUSE ONE EPISODE I NEVER SEEN BEFORE.

 OFF TO BED AT 11PMISH. I WAS SO PISSED WHEN I WOKE UP AT 1:30AM.  I DID FALL ASLEEP THREE MORE TIMES AND HAD 3 DREAMS I FORGOT. I REMEMBERED THEM WHEN I GOT UP TO PEE OR JUST WOKE UP. ANYWAY , LIKE I WROTE EARLIER , I WANT TO USE MY RECORDER DEVICE THAT I STILL HAVE WHEN I WAS SPORTS WRITING FOR A LOCAL SMALL NEWSPAPER.

  THURSDAY      6 - 3 - 21

  AT 60 YEARS OLD I'M HIDING.........

  FRIDAY OUR YOUNGEST GETS ALL 4 WISDOM TEETH TAKEN OUT. I AM NOT A BIG FAN OF THIS PROCEDURE.  NATURE VERSE MONEY FOR DENTISTS IS WHAT I THINK. IF IT BECOMES AN ISSUE LATER AS AN ADULT ( NOT LAST SECOND ) THAN DEAL WITH IT BUT TO TELL A YOUNG KID IT " MIGHT " BE A SERIOUS PROBLEM IN THE FUTURE GIVES THEM AND THE PARENTS A FALSE IMPRESSION AND FEARFUL DECISION.  DID ANY OF OUR GRANDPARENTS OR PARENTS DO THIS ? I DIDN'T.

 OKAY RANT IS OVER , BACK TO PROJECTS :

  - SLEPT BAD TO OKAY AND FIRST THING I DO IS WALK THE PUP , FEED THE PUP , AND VACUUM ANY FLYING INSECTS. IT RAINED AND COUPLED WITH LIGHT UNDER OUR AWNING ALL NIGHT THAT ATTRACTED A TON OF PROTECTION FOR THE BUGGERS......SO THEY THOUGHT. I VACUUMED A 100+ MOTHS AND OTHER BUGS WITH WINGS. THE NEW SPECIES I DON'T REMEMBER SEEING HERE IS LARGE BEETLES.

 - I AM HOPING THIS IS NOT A LEAK. I ENTER THE HEATER CLOSET AND OUR SHAMPOO MACHINE ( HALF FILLED WITH SOLUTION ) IS LAYING ON ITS SIDE. AGAIN , A RENTER MUST HAVE USED IT AND JUST THREW IT INTO THE BACK OF THE CLOSET. WELL , WATER WAS ALL OVER. I TOOK EVERYTHING OUT OF THE CLOSET , REMOVED SOME CARPET TILES , AND RAN A FAN ON IT FOR 24 HOURS. GRRRRRRRRRRR...............RENTERS.

 - SPENT WAY TOO MUCH TIME FIXING A TOY CHAIR THAT SITS ON OUR COUNTER TOP.

 - WASHED DOWN THE KITCHEN BACK SPLASH.

 - CLEANED OUT THE WOOD STOVE. THIS IS ALWAYS FUN.

 - CLEANED A TRASH CAN.

 - CONSOLIDATED MY 10 LISTS INTO ONE PUNCH LIST.

 - FLEX SEALED CANOES AGAIN.

 - I NOTICED MY 50' ORANGE EXTENSION CORD HAS THE " GROUND " WIRE CUT. GEE , I WONDER WHO SPLICED IT ?  I DID NOT KNOW WITHOUT A GROUND WIRE IT WOULD NOT WORK.  I SEARCHED EVERY LEVEL OF THE HOUSE AND EVERY CLOSET AND I COULD NOT FIND ANOTHER EXTENSION CORD. THERE USED TO BE 2 IN THE HEATER CLOSET BUT NOW THERE IS ONLY THE ONE BROKEN CORD. GEE , I WONDER WHO TOOK OR MISPLACED THE OTHER CORD ? IF I DO NOT COME UP WITH A MACGYVER THAN I WILL MAKE A PIT STOP AT THE HARDWARE STORE.

 - A REALLY NICE WOMAN STOPS BY FOR A FB MARKETPLACE EXCHANGE. SHE IS A NURSE AND UNLIKE THE OTHER NURSE I TALKED TO LAST MONTH THIS ONE SAYS THE PANDEMIC WILL RETURN IN AUGUST AND SHUT EVERYTHING DOWN AGAIN. OH ......MY.....GOD......WOULD THAT SUCK.

 - A RENTER FORGOT A FISHING ROD. I TOLD HIM THE ROD WILL BE PLACED ON THE BACK DECK RAILING BY THE BACK DOOR......DECK , BACK , RAILING............BACK , RAILING , DECK...................RAILING , DECK , BACK. YES THESE ARE THE ONLY 3 WORDS TO REMEMBER IN LOCATING AND RETRIEVING THE FISHING ROD. HE ARRIVES AND GOES DIRECTLY TO THE FRONT DECK AND KNOCKS TWICE. MAZE DID NOT BARK AND I WAS IN THE BATHROOM. THE GUY FIGURED IT OUT AND LEFT AFTER 10 MINUTES. I WAS STILL IN THE BATHROOM........HIDING.

 - ALL KINDS OF DEER SEEN TODAY INCLUDING A LATE MOM WITH A TINY FAWN.

 - CLEANED DISHES AND CLEANED KITCHEN UP A BIT. I WAS MAKING BREAKFAST AND WHILE FOOD IS COOKING I CLEAN UP AND PUT AWAY DISHES A RENTER LEFT IN THE DRYING RACK. ( GRRRRRRR )

 - I PURCHASED 12 NEW DRIVEWAY LIGHTS. I OPEN THEM UP AND NO POWER SUPPLY..........OF COURSE. IT'S TIME TO MACGYVER AND MAN DID I MACGYVER. HERE WE GO :

 A) - THE ORIGINAL 11 DRIVEWAY LIGHTS ARE CONTROLLED BY 2 TRANSFORMERS. THIS WAS A MACGYVER I DID MONTHS AGO AND IT LOOKS HORRIBLE. IT GOT THE JOB DONE BUT NOW ONLY 5 LIGHTS WORK. IT WAS TIME TO FIX THIS. I HAVE BEEN PUSHING THIS PROJECT OFF ALL WEEK.

 B) - I TEST SOME NEW LIGHTS. MOST WORK BUT SOME DON'T. I BELIEVE ONE TRANSFORMER IS BAD. I REMOVE ONE POWER SUPPLY ALONG WITH EXTENSION CORDS , UNDER GROUND CORD , TRASH BAG COVERING EVERYTHING , AND A 6 WAY POWER STRIP. I NOW HAVE JUST ONE TRANSFORMER. IT CLEANED UP SUPER NICE AND I LIKE IT. BUT , THERE IS A PROBLEM......LENGTH. NOT MY COCK , BUT LIGHT WIRE LENGTH.

 C) - I GET 9 OF 11 LIGHTS TO WORK PERFECT. I EVEN RESET THE TIMER ON THE CLOCK TO TURN THEM ON AND OFF. THE PROBLEM IS THE 2 FURTHEST DRIVEWAY LIGHTS CAN NOT BE REACHED VIA ONE TRANSFORMER LINE. THIS IS WHY I USED TWO IN THE PAST. IT IS GETTING NEAR 5:30PM AND STARTING TO RAIN. I HAD MAZE OUTSIDE ON A LEASH WITH ME AND EVERY TIME I WORK OUTSIDE. SHE SAW A DEER BUT DID NOTHING. SO , SHE DOES NOT CHASE ANIMALS AND BARK WHEN PEOPLE KNOCK ON OUR DOOR.

 D) - I'M GOOD WITH MACGYVERING. I REMOVED A GROUND EXTENSION CORD. IT WAS A LITTLE BIT OF A HASSLE. USING A RAG AND DAWN LIQUID I CLEAN IT UP.  ON THE MAIN TABLE I SPLICE THIS WIRE TO MY BROKEN WIRE WITH THE BAD " GROUND ".....ALL WHILE WATCHING A HARRY POTTER MARATHON ( THESE MOVIES WERE ACTUALLY VERY GOOD ).  ANYWAY , I DO NOT NEED TO SPEND MONEY OR GO TO HARDWARE STORE. AFTER SPLICING , I TESTED THE CORD 5 DIFFERENT TIMES. I NOW HAVE A 75' CORD THAT WORKS FINE.

  AT 6:15PM I DECIDE TO HEAD TO CHARLIE WEAVERS RESTAURANT ONE MORE TIME. I SAT AT THE BAR WITH ANOTHER COUPLE AND TALKED TO THE OWNERS AND WORKERS. MEAL WAS.....FRENCH ONION SOUP , HOT BREAD , ALASKAN PALE ALE BEER BATTERED SHRIMP , AND CHICKEN PARM..........ALONG WITH THE WINE I BROUGHT.

 HEAD HOME WITH DOGGY BAG AND FEELING FAT. I WANTED TO STOP AT THE LOCAL ICE CREAM PARLOR ( BETTER THAN DQ ) BUT DECIDED......... I AM TOO FAT.

 AT HOME MAZE GREETS ME WHICH IS ALWAYS SO SPECIAL. THIS IS PURE LOVE AND I THANK HER FOR IT. WE PLAY OUTSIDE OFF LEASH AND SHE RUNS BY ME 10 TIMES HAVING A BLAST. BACK INSIDE I FEED HER AND THAN WE LAY ON THE COUCH TOGETHER AND SNUGGLE. OH , MAZE SAVED ME FROM GETTING UP AND VACUUMING A SMALL INSECT.....SHE ATE IT.

 TALK TO WHEELS AND SHE RECEIVED HER COVID TEST RESULTS FOR TRAVELING....ALL GOOD. SHE EVEN HELPED FRIENDS APPLY FOR THEIRS.

 I WATCH AN EPISODE OF THE HANDMAIDS TALE. IT WAS GOOD. I ALSO WATCH AN EPISODE OF LUCIFER WHICH I AM EXCITED IT RETURNED. BUT , I FELL ASLEEP HALF WAY THROUGH. I RE-WATCHED IT.

 TEXTED MY YOUNGEST ABOUT MY DAY AND THAT I MISS AND LOVE HER. I ALSO EMAILED HER MY BERMUDA DREAM VACATION STORY THAT SHE REQUESTED.

 ELDEST WAS NICE ENOUGH TO PICK UP HER SISTER IN CENTER CITY TODAY. LATER IN THE NIGHT BOTH OF THEM WENT TO A MUTUAL BEST FRIENDS HOUSE TO PLAY AND CHILL.

 OFF TO BED AND I SLEPT OKAY. I GOT UP AT 1:30AM AGAIN , THAN 2:30AM , BUT THAN SLEPT TO 6:30AM. THOSE 4 HOURS WERE GLORIOUS.

 I AM PLAYING SCRABBLE WITH A SUPER COMPETITOR. I AM UP BIG AND USE MY FINAL LETTERS TO WIN 325 TO 275. I PUT OUT MY HAND TO SHAKE HIS AND SAY GOOD GAME. HE REPLIES , " LET ME ADD UP THE POINTS AND MAKE SURE WHO WON. "  I SAY , " IT'S PRETTY CLEAR I WON BY 50 POINTS. " HE REPLIES , " IT COULD BE DIFFERENT I AM ADDING UP EACH WORD WE USED FOR POINTS. LIKE A " Z " IS WORTH 10 SO THE VALUE IS MORE WHEN ADDING UP AT THE END OF THE GAME. " I REPLY , " I NEVER HEARD OF THIS ADDING. MAYBE IF IT WAS A CLOSE GAME BY A POINT OR TWO BUT WHEN WINNING BY 50 , A 100 , OR 200 IT DOESN'T MATTER. " HE CONTINUES TO MATHEMATICALLY ADD UP EACH INDIVIDUAL WORD PLAYED BY VALUE AND NOT POINTS. I JUST SHAKE MY HEAD...............dream ends.

   FRIDAY       6 - 4 - 21

 WELP.......HEADING HOME.

 FIRST MORNING PROJECT WAS TO TRY TO FIX THE LAST 2 DRIVEWAY LIGHTS. LAST NIGHT I GOT 9 OF 11 TO WORK. I CAME UP WITH AN IDEA TO USE THE ORIGINAL WIRE THAT STRETCHED TO THE FRONT OF THE DRIVEWAY. THIS WIRE WAS INACTIVE BUT I SPLICED IT WITH AN ACTIVE WIRE. I GOT ONE DRIVEWAY LIGHT AND TESTED IT....IT WORKED. I NOW HAVE ALL 11 DRIVEWAY LIGHTS WORKING AND COMPLETELY CONSOLIDATED WITH 2 TRANSFORMERS NOW INTO ONE ALONG WITH REMOVING EXTRA EXTENSION CORDS , 6 WAY POWER STRIP , AND A BLACK BAG TO COVER IT. IT LOOKS 100X BETTER.

 THE BLACK BEAR VIDEO I FILMED AT THE TOP OF OUR DRIVEWAY GOT OVER 125 VIEWS IN UNDER 60 MINUTES. NO ONE NOTICED WHEN THE BEAR PUT UP HIS RIGHT FRONT PAW. HE DID NOT STOMP IT BUT THIS IS DEFINITELY A SIGN HE WAS AGITATED.

 I FINISH SMALL PROJECTS AND THAN START THE CHECKING-OUT PROCESS....MAN DOES IT BLOW.  LOADING , CLEANING , AND GATHERING MY TOOLS IS ALMOST WORSE THAN THE ACTUAL PUNCH LIST STUFF I DO.

 THE MAIN REASON FOR COMING HOME IS I WANTED TO BE WITH MY YOUNGEST. SHE GOT ALL 4 WISDOM TEETH REMOVED. THE PROCEDURE WENT VERY GOOD AND SHE IS RECOVERING NICELY SO FAR. SHE IS A TROOPER. IN FACT , SUCH A TROOPER , SHE WAS THE FIRST ONE TO GREET ME WHEN I PULLED INTO THE DRIVEWAY TO HELP UNLOAD.

 START MY DRIVE HOME AND HIT 20 MINUTES OF TORRENTIAL RAIN.

 KEEP DRIVING AND BEFORE THE TUNNEL MY G.P.S. SAYS , " TRAFFIC ALERT , ACCIDENT AHEAD , 30 MINUTE DELAY. " IT JUST HAPPENS TO BE AT THE JIM THORPE EXIT SO I GOT OFF WITH LOTS OF OTHER DRIVERS. THE TURNPIKE IS AT A STOP. IT WAS A HORRIBLE RE-ROUTE.

 G.P.S. RE-ROUTES ME 30 MINUTES OUT OF THE WAY AND THROUGH TINY TOWNS WITH TRAFFIC LIGHTS.  I WORK MY WAY BACK TO ALLENTOWN AND GET ON THE TURNPIKE AGAIN. THE G.P.S GOES OFF A 2ND TIME , " TRAFFIC ALERT , ACCIDENT AHEAD , 30 MINUTE DELAY. " ARE YOU F'N KIDDING ME !!!! THIS IS RIGHT AT QUAKERTOWN.

 I DECIDE TO WAIT THIS OUT WITH A SHIT LOAD OF TRAFFIC. IT WAS A PAINFUL RIDE HOME BUT I TOLD MYSELF TO JUST CHILL , DRIVE SMART , AND LISTEN TO MY SPOTIFY PLAYLIST......BEST EVER SONGS.

 I PULL UP AND MY ELDEST IS ON THE PATIO. I DRIVE UP ON OUR LAWN AND UNLOAD THE FIRE WOOD BEHIND OUR GARAGE. I LOOK FOR MY ELDEST TO TAKE THE PUP BUT SHE IS GONE.

 I PULL THE VAN BACK DOWN TO OUR DRIVEWAY AND THERE IS MY YOUNGEST ON THE PATIO AFTER HER DENTIST OPERATION JUST HOURS AGO. SHE HAS A TON OF GAUZE IN HER MOUTH AND WITH MY HANDS MOVING LIKE AN ITALIAN  I SPEAK VERY BROKEN ITALIAN / GOD FATHER-LIKE TO HER , " I HEARD YOU MADE MY ENEMY AN OFFER THEY COULDN'T REFUSE. MY FAMILY IS TRULY HONORED FOR THIS ACTION SO HERE IS AN APPRECIATION FROM US TO YOU. " I FOLDED MONEY AND HANDED IT TO HER. SHE USED THE ITALIAN HAND GESTURE BACK AT ME WHILE I WAS TALKING BROKEN ITALIAN TO HER. WE BOTH GIGGLED.

 I UNLOAD AND PLACE THINGS IN THE GARAGE AND ON THE PATIO. THE KIDS UNLOAD THE PATIO STUFF TO INSIDE THE HOUSE.

 OUTSIDE I PREP THE VAN NOW BEFORE THE RAIN COMES. I USE A WET/DRY VAC , A LEAF BLOWER , AND POP UP ALL THE SEATS. TOMORROW I AM GIVING WHEELS AND SOME FRIENDS A RIDE SO I FEEL I SHOULD DO THIS NOW. IT TAKES ME ABOUT A SOLID 30 MINUTES TO CLEAN AND PREP  THE VAN.

 INSIDE I SET UP MY COMPUTER AND UNPACKAGED MY LARGE PLASTIC BIN OF CLOTHES AND STUFF. MY YOUNGEST IS IN MY BED WATCHING TV AND RELAXING FROM HER SURGERY. THE KID IS SO COOL AND WE TALK. OF COURSE THE PUP JOINS US.

 I MAKE 2 BURGERS FOR DINNER WHILE WHEELS AND OUR ELDEST ORDER FROM ZESTO'S. I FEEL BAD OUR YOUNGEST CAN ONLY HAVE MASH POTATOES. SO.....WHEELS MAKES HER AN ICE CREAM MILKSHAKE AND AN HOUR LATER I MAKE HER ONE WITH 7 INGREDIENTS. I ASKED HER IF SHE GUESSED ALL 7 INGREDIENTS I GIVE HER $5. SHE GUESSED 6 OF 7.

 TECHNICALLY IT WAS 8 INGREDIENTS - SHAVED ICE , MILK , CARAMEL SYRUP , CHOCOLATE SYRUP , CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM , NUTELLA , PEANUT BUTTER , AND ....WATER.

 ALL OF US WATCH LUCIFER. I ACTUALLY WALKED UP THE STREET TO PICK UP FOOD AND MAIL 2 LETTERS. I OFFERED THIS SINCE I SEEN THE FIRST NEW EPISODE ALREADY. THE SHOW WAS GOOD AND LUCIFER ( A GOOD DEVIL ) BRINGS UP SEVERAL VERY INTRIGUING QUESTIONS TO HIS FATHER..........GOD. RELIGIOUS AND / OR CATHOLIC PEOPLE MAY QUESTION THESE QUESTIONS. ANYWAY , THE ACTOR DENNIS HAYSBERT PLAYS GOD. HE IS THE ALLSTATE COMMERCIAL GUY. HIS VOICE IS PERFECT FOR THE PART. ANYWAY IT WAS GOOD.

 WE WATCH THE 9TH INNING OF THE PHILLIES WHO ARE LOSING 2 - 1. THE FIRST BATTER RHYS HOSKINS DOUBLES TO LEAD OFF. OK , MAN ON 2ND BASE WITH NO OUTS AND DOWN ONE RUN. THIS LOOKS PROMISING RIGHT ? I IMMEDIATELY TURN TO WHEELS AND SAY , " SUCKING US IN ? " SHE AGREES. I TURN TO MY YOUNGEST AND SAY , " DO YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN BY " SUCKING US IN ? " I EXPLAIN THE SITUATION ON HOW " GOOD " IT LOOKS FOR THE PHILLIES TO TIE OR EVEN WIN THIS GAME. BUT IT NEVER HAPPENS THUS " SUCKING US IN TO WIN ".

 I SAY TO OUR YOUNGEST , " OK , WATCH WHAT HAPPENS ".  A PINCH RUNNER REPLACES HOSKINS ON 2ND BASE. THE NEW RUNNER GETS PICKED OFF ( ALMOST LAUGHABLE SINCE THIS IS SUPER RARE) , REALMUTO STRIKES OUT , AND THE FINAL BATTER POPS OUT....GAME OVER. I TURN TO MY KID AND SAY , " YOU NOW KNOW WHAT SUCKING US IN MEANS. "

 OFF TO BED AND THE PUP JOINS ME LATER.  I WAS TIRED AND IT WAS A LONG DAY. I MISS THE MOUNTAIN HOUSE ALREADY.

  SATURDAY    6 - 5 - 21

WHEN YOU GET OFFERED A ONCE IN A LIFETIME TRIP.......YOU SAY YES AND MAKE IT HAPPEN.

 THIS MORNING I DROVE WHEELS AND 4 FAMILY AND FRIENDS TO A PRIVATE AIRPORT. I WALKED THROUGH THE HANGER WHICH HAD A BEAUTIFUL PLANE IN IT. THAN I TOOK PICTURES AND VIDEO OF THEM , THE PLANE , AND TAKE OFF. I POSTED IT ON SOCIAL MEDIA. THE VIDEO WAS WATCHED OVER 220 TIMES BY FAMILY AND FRIENDS IN UNDER 30 MINUTES. MAN , WHAT A DIFFERENT WORLD THE RICH HAVE. THE CO-PILOT AND HELP WERE SUPER COOL. THEY MADE IT SAFELY AND THE GIRLS ARE PARTYING.

 DRIVE HOME AND TAKE 76 EXPRESSWAY. THERE IS NOTHING " EXPRESS " ABOUT THIS HIGHWAY. I COULD NOT BELIEVE THE PILE OF TRAFFIC HEADING TOWARDS NEW JERSEY.

 BACK HOME I LOAD UP MY TRAILER AND FB MARKETPLACE STRIKES AGAIN. I PICKED UP 2 VERY HEAVY MARBLE COUNTERTOPS JUST 5 MINUTES FROM ME. ONE WILL BE TRASHED AND THE OTHER MAYBE USED AT THE NAIL.  I HAD 2 THINGS HELP ME LOAD UP THESE VERY HEAVY TOPS......GRAVITY AND THE SON OF THE LADY I GOT THEM OFF OF.

 A FRIEND DROPS OFF A WINDOW FAN FOR OUR YOUNGEST ROOM MATE.

 A FRIEND DROPS OFF A HDMI SWITCH FOR OUR YOUNGEST AND HER ROOM MATES.

 MAN I LIKE TO BE IN THE MOUNTAINS RIGHT NOW....BUT THE BIG PLUS IS I GET TO HANG OUT WITH MY YOUNGEST. SHE IS STILL RECOVERING ( VERY NICELY SO FAR ) FROM HAVING ALL 4 WISDOM TEETH REMOVED.

  PHILLIES WITH A NICE WIN.....FINALLY.

 I HANG OUT WITH MY YOUNGEST ALL DAY AND NIGHT. I MAKE HER LUNCH AND DINNER WHICH IS ALL SOFT STUFF LIKE APPLE SAUCE , ICE CREAM MILK SHAKES , MASHED POTATOES , AND MORE. WE WATCH 3 EPISODES OF WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS. IT IS NOT A BAD COMEDY. WE ALSO WATCH A MOVIE CALLED YES DAY. AGAIN.....OKAY.

 ELDEST ORDERS CLOSE TO $100 OF FOOD AND GOES RIGHT UPSTAIRS. I SAW HER ONE MORE TIME AT 5AM AND TOLD HER TO GO TO BED.

 IT WAS HOT TODAY SO I TURNED ON THE A/C FOR THE FIRST TIME. IT WAS A GOOD CHOICE.

 OFF TO BED AND I WOKE UP AT 1:30AM , 2:30AM , 4:30AM ( STAYED UP TO 6AM ) AND FINALLY GOT UP AT 7:30AM. YEP....THAT WAS FUN SLEEPING.

  SUNDAY     6 - 6 - 21

 YEP.....SUCKING US IN.

 MY MAIN PROJECT TODAY WAS HANGING A " NEW " 50 INCH TV AT THE NAIL. HERE IS HOW MY MORNING WENT.....STARTING AT 7:45AM.

 - LOAD UP TOOLS IN THE TRAILER ( LOVE THIS TRAILER ). I HAVE 2 VERY HEAVY MARBLE COUNTER TOPS IN THE TRAILER AND I WANT TO GET THEM OFF BECAUSE OF THEIR WEIGHT. I WENT DOWN OUR BASEMENT FOR A WALL MOUNT ONLY TO FIND A SHIT LOAD OF EMPTY BEER CANS BOTH INSIDE AND OUTSIDE ON OUR STEPS. I WAS NOT A HAPPY CAMPER.

 - DRIVE TO NAIL AND UNLOAD TOOLS.

 - SPRAY PAINT 3 " L " BRACKETS.

 - REMOVE TV SHELF , BRACKETS , AND SAW SALL 2 BOLTS COMING OUT OF THE WALL.

 - WEED WHACK OUT FRONT.

 - LEAF BLOW OUT FRONT.

 - GET MAIL , CHANGE MARQUEE , AND TOUCH-UP SPRAY PAINT 2 METAL BENCHES OUT FRONT.

 - I DECIDE NOT TO WALL MOUNT THE TV AND RE-USE THE SHELF. I ANGLE CUT THE SHELF SMALLER AND RE-HANG. I PLACE THE TV UP THERE AND IT LOOKS GOOD. THE NAIL OFFICIALLY HAS ALL FLAT SCREEN TV'S. WE ARE LITTLE OVER 2 DECADES BEHIND ALL OTHER BARS.

 - LAST WEEK I TESTED THE TV USING AN H.D.M.I CORD AND IT WORKED NICELY. I PLUG EVERYTHING IN AND USE A COAXIAL CABLE. ANNNNNNNNND IT DOESN'T WORK. I GO THROUGH INPUT OPTIONS AND NOTHING. I NEED A H.D.M.I CORD. JESUS....IT'S ALWAYS SOMETHING.

 - PLACE 1 COUNTERTOP IN THE BACK STORAGE ROOM.....IT'S HEAVY.

 - PULL TRAILER TO DUMPSTER ( LOVE HAVING A DUMPSTER ) AND USING A MINI SLEDGE HAMMER I SMASHED UP THE 2ND COUNTER TOP TO SMALLER PIECES. I THREW IT OUT ALONG WITH OUR OLD BIG TV , AN END TABLE ( SMASHED THAT TOO ) , A SMALL RADIO/TV , AND OTHER DEBRIS. I BROOM SWEPT THE TRAILER AND HEADED HOME.

 MAKE LUNCH FOR MY YOUNGEST AND WE CHILL WITH THE PUP.

 I MAKE AN OFFER TO MY YOUNGEST. I SAY I WILL TAKE HER TO RITA'S WATERICE. THE KID IS SO SMART AND ADORABLE AS SHE ROLLS HER EYES AND REPLIES , " WHAT DO YOU NEED HELP WITH ? " MAN , SHE WAS SPOT ON.

 I DETACH THE TRAILER AND STOW IT IN THE GARAGE. FRIGGIN' LOVE THIS TRAILER. I MOVE SOME CARS AROUND AND BOTH MY YOUNGEST AND THE PUP RETURN TO THE NAIL WITH ME.

 - AFTER ARRIVING WE PREP TOOLS TO BE LOADED.

 - I TEST A H.D.M.I CORD I BROUGHT FROM HOME  AND THE " NEW " TV WORKS GOOD. IT'S EVEN ON A SWIVEL.

 - I FORGET TO MAKE VISA SLIPS SO MY YOUNGEST WRITES UP SOME. MY MEMORY BLOWS.

 - WHEELS CALLS US FROM OUT OF COUNTRY USING A FREE APP CALLED " WHAT'S APP ". SHE SAID IT IS BEAUTIFUL THERE. SHE IS OUT OF COUNTRY AND I AM ENVIOUS.

 - I DUST SOME AREAS.

 - YOUNGEST BALANCES REGISTER AND BANK.

 - I LOAD UP AND WE ROLL OUT.

 A QUICK STOP AT RITA'S WATER ICE. WE ARRIVED JUST IN TIME BECAUSE 1 MINUTE AFTER MY KID WENT INSIDE ABOUT 20 PEOPLE GOT IN LINE.

 AT HOME WE WATCH THE PHILLIES WIN AND TAKE THE SERIES FROM WASHINGTON. IT WAS FINALLY FUN TO SEE.

 BUT , BEING A PHILLY FAN MEANS WE GET SUCKED IN. OF COURSE THE 76ERS DID THIS TO US. THEY GOT ABSOLUTELY SMOKED BIG TIME IN THE FIRST HALF. CHRIST , I THINK THEY WERE DOWN ALMOST 30 POINTS. WHAT A FUCKING WAY TO START A PLAYOFF SERIES AS THE #1 SEED AT HOME WITH A CRAZY PACKED HOUSE. IT WAS SICKENING TO WATCH SO I CHANNEL SURFED AND OCCASIONALLY PEEKED BACK IN.

 OF COURSE THE 76ERS SUCK US BACK IN BIG TIME BY MAKING A REMARKABLE COMEBACK. THEY ACTUALLY HAD THE HAWKS LEAD DOWN TO 2 POINTS WITH UNDER 10 SECONDS LEFT.....BUT WE STILL LOSE. GOD I WISH I LIVED IN A CITY WHERE THE LOCAL TEAM ALWAYS WINS.

 ALL THE F'N SPORTS RADIO EXPERTS PICKED THE 76ERS TO SMOKE THE HAWKS. ANNNNNNNNND WRONG AGAIN. SIXERS LOSE IN 5. OUR ONLY WIN COMES WHEN THE HAWKS ARE SO TIRED FROM MAKING SO MANY JUMP SHOTS IN THE FIRST 3 GAMES THEY NEEDED TO REST AND STARTED THEIR CHEERLEADERS. 76ERS WIN BY 2 POINTS IN DOUBLE OVERTIME. CHEERLEADERS PUT UP A VALIANT FIGHT.

 NEIGHBOR INVITES US FOR DRINKS BUT I DECLINE AND HANG WITH MY YOUNGEST. SHE IS STILL RECOVERING VERY WELL FROM HER SURGERY SO FAR.

 WE WATCH SOME EPISODES OF WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS. THEY WERE OK TO OKAY.

 I ALSO WATCHED THE VERY ENDING OF AVENGERS : INFINITY WAR WHICH LEAD TO WATCHING THE 3 HOUR LONG AVENGERS : ENDGAME. THEY WERE ACTUALLY GOOD.

 OFF TO BED....SLEPT LIKE ASS.

 MONDAY   6 - 7 - 21

 START MORNING WITH A SHOWER AND SHAVE. I HAVE NOT CHANGED MY BOXERS IN 8 DAYS. I BELIEVE THE WORD " RIPE " LOST ITS MEANING TODAY.

  TAKE A RIDE TO THE NAIL. I TOOK THE LONG WAY JUST TO LET THE MOTORCYCLE WARM UP. SOME OF THE ROADS ARE NICELY WOODED AND TREE LINED.

 STOPPED BY 2 FREE MULCH AREAS IN OUR TOWNSHIP. THE NEW BATCH CAME IN AND THE DARK MULCH LOOKS EXCELLENT.

 THE MAIN THING I WANTED TO CLEAN WAS THE ICE MACHINE.  A " NEW " HOSE I GOT WITH A NEW NOZZLE JUST HAPPENED TO BE LONG ENOUGH TO REACH FROM OUTSIDE THE BACK DOOR TO THE ICE MACHINE. THIS WAS A NICE THING BECAUSE I USUALLY HAVE TO CONNECT 2 HOSES. ANYWAY ,  I TOOK EVERYTHING OFF AND HOSED WASHED EACH PART.

 IT TOOK ME AWHILE BUT I FORCED MYSELF TO CALL OUR VISA CARD COMPANY THAT HANDLES OUR CREDIT SALES AT THE NAIL. I SPENT ABOUT 45 MINUTES WITH A VERY NICE TECH TO LEARN HOW TO " BATCH " ( TOTAL ) SALES FROM A PREVIOUS NIGHT ( I WAS DOING THIS MANUALLY......TOTAL HASSLE ) AND FIXING THE CHIP READER AND MAGNETIC SWIPE. I WAS SO GLAD TO CROSS THIS OFF MY LIST. NOW.....WILL IT WORK THIS WEEKEND ?

 THE TEMPERATURES ARE SUPPOSE TO RECEDE A BIT. I JUST CAN'T REMEMBER SUCH HOT 90'S TEMPS IN EARLY JUNE. ANYWAY , I KNOW BOTH THE POCONOS AND BEACH IS USUALLY 10-12 DEGREES COOLER.

 A NICE EMAIL FROM MUSICIANS. THEY WANT TO RE-START UP " OPEN MIC " AGAIN. SLOWLY WE KEEP INCHING TOWARDS " NORMALCY ".  THOUGH I STILL THINK OF THAT NURSE WHO SAID BY AUGUST IT WILL TURN TO CRAP AGAIN WITH COVID.

 BACK HOME AND SETTLE IN FOR LUNCH. I SPENT 3 HOURS AT THE NAIL AND I AM SOAKED USING THE HOSE AND SO IS ALL AROUND THE ICE MACHINE......OH WELL.  I MAKE LUNCH AND FINISH SEASON 1 OF THE HANDMAID'S TALE.  OVERALL I WOULD SAY IT WAS GOOD.

 LOAD UP MY TRAILER A LITTLE AND DROPPED MULCH OFF TO A NEIGHBOR AS I PROMISED. I TEXTED A PICTURE OF THE NEW MULCH TO MY BROTHER BECAUSE HE WANTS MULCH FOR HIS YARD. WE WILL DO IT THIS WEEKEND.

 A BROTHER AND I SET UP 2 JOBS FOR OUR PARENTS AND MY YOUNGEST......BOTH FENCE JOBS.

 MY ELDEST FRIEND / BARTENDER ASKS ME TO HELP HER PICK UP A SOFA IN HAVERTOWN. WE WILL DO THIS TOMORROW. I ADORE THIS KID AND TREAT HER LIKE  A DAUGHTER.

 A FRIEND PICKS UP MY YOUNGEST TO GO SHOPPING. IT'S ALWAYS GOOD TO SEE HER. THESE FRIENDS ARE MY FAVORITES. WHEN SHE GOT DROPPED OFF BY ANOTHER FRIEND IT WAS GREAT TO SEE HER TOO. THE ADORABLE RED HEAD GIRL JUST CRACKS ME UP TO NO END. SHE HAS JUST SOCKS ON IN OUR BACK YARD. I ASKED HER WHAT'S GOING ON ?  SHE RESPONDS , " FLYING TO VEGAS TONIGHT. " SHE ALWAYS SEEMS TO HAVE SOMETHING GOING ON.

 I GET ASKED TO GO TO LOCAL BAR TO VISIT MY ELDEST AND FRIENDS BUT DECLINE. I FEEL OBLIGATED ( AND LOVE ) TO HANG WITH MY YOUNGEST AFTER HER SURGERY. IT IS DAY 4 AND SHE IS RECOVERING INCREDIBLY SO FAR.

 I ADMIRE MY YOUNGEST. SHE BOUGHT NEW WHITE SNEAKERS AND THAN A TYPE OF CLOTH PAINT. SHE SPENT 4 HOURS PAINTING HER SNEAKERS WITH COOL PINK COLORS. THE SHOES LOOK BRAND NEW.

 MAKE MY YOUNGEST A BANANA MILK SHAKE AND WE WATCH THE MOVIE MAYA AND THE LAST DRAGON. THE PREVIEW WAS VERY GOOD. THE ACTUAL MOVIE.......EH TO OKAY. THE SPECIAL EFFECTS WERE DISNEY QUALITY EXCELLENT. I MADE MYSELF A ROAST BEEF GRILLED CHEESE. IT WAS VERY GOOD.

 SPEAKING OF FOOD. I HAVE A COUSIN WHO POSTS FOOD PICTURES AND CRITIQUES IT ONLINE. A FAMILY MEMBER COMMENTS ABOUT HIS BROTHER DYING ( MY COUSIN ) AND HE RESPONDS , " YEAH , I JUST CAN'T BELIEVE IT. " THIS IS A NORMAL RESPONSE BUT ONE MINUTE LATER HE POSTS ABOUT HOW GOOD THE FOOD IS. NO ONE FROM HIS FAMILY POSTED ANYTHING. IN THIS DAY AND AGE IT IS WEIRD NOT TO USE SOCIAL MEDIA TO ANNOUNCE THINGS , BUT I GUESS IT'S UNDERSTANDABLE TO KEEP IT QUIET TOO.

 I OFFER TO HELP A FAMILY MEMBER LAY A LARGE WOOD FLOOR. HIS RESPONSE , " YOU CAN HELP CARRY THE WOOD UP THE STAIRS. " A BIT OF A SLAP IN THE FACE SINCE I DO HAVE 40 YEARS EXPERIENCE IN CARPENTRY AND BUILT A HOUSE. I AM NOT THE BEST BUT I FIGURE I AM A LITTLE BIT BETTER THAN JUST CARRYING UP SUPPLIES.

  FB MARKETPLACE - SCHEDULED A PICK-UP BUT THAN CANCELED BECAUSE I REALIZED THE PRODUCT WOULD NOT FIT MY COUNTER TOP. IT WAS A FAUCET. I FELT BAD BECAUSE THE SELLER DID EVERYTHING RIGHT.....RESPONDED QUICKLY TO TEXTS AND MARKED THE PRODUCT " PENDING ". SHE WAS COOL AND PLACED THE AD BACK ON MARKETPLACE.

 FB MARKETPLACE - 1ST MESSAGE IS " SEEN ".....NO RESPONSE. 2ND MESSAGE IS " SEEN ".....NO RESPONSE. 3RD MESSAGE IS " SEEN ".....NO RESPONSE. 4TH MESSAGE IS " SEEN " AND THE WOMAN FINALLY RESPONDS BY SAYING SOMEONE BEFORE ME WAS ASKING FOR THE FAUCET. I IMMEDIATELY REPLIED , " OK THANKS ". THIS SELLER WAS POLAR OPPOSITE OF THE PREVIOUS SELLER I DEALT WITH. AS SOON AS YOU " SEE " THE MESSAGE JUST RESPOND TO IT AND BE DONE. YOU CAN ALSO MARK THE PRODUCT " PENDING "......LIKE TO THE OTHER SELLER DID.

 OFF TO BED AND SLEPT A LITTLE BETTER....THOUGH I GOT UP AT 5AM.

   AN OLD FRIEND NAMED K.M. ( NOW K.L. ) CONTACTED ME ABOUT RIDING BIKES. I HAVE KNOWN HER SINCE HIGH SCHOOL. SHE IS ADORABLE , ATHLETIC , AND SMART.........ALONG WITH BLONDE HAIR AND BLUE EYES. SHE STILL LOOKS VERY GOOD TODAY. I WAS SURPRISED WHEN SHE WANTED TO RIDE MOTORCYCLES TOGETHER AND NOT REGULAR BICYCLES WHICH THOUGHT AT FIRST. WE BOTH HAVE MOTORCYCLES AND BEFORE WE RIDE SHE SAYS TO ME , " DO YOU THINK WE COULD OF BEEN IN A SERIOUS RELATIONSHIP ? " I JOKINGLY REPLY , " I SEE US MORE AS FRIENDS THAN LOVERS. " SHE GIGGLES AND ASKS AGAIN , " YOU REALLY DON'T THINK WE BE A GOOD COUPLE ? " I JUST STARE AT HER CONCERNED BLUE EYES AND GET ON MY BIKE. I SAID NOTHING TO THE 2ND REPLY. I FEEL I MISSED AN OPPORTUNITY TO REALLY GET TO KNOW HER ON A VERY PERSONAL LEVEL. WE BOTH START TO RIDE AND SHE LOOKS AT ME DISAPPOINTED. I TOTALLY GET THE FEELING SHE WANTED TO START A RELATIONSHIP AND EVEN FURTHER THAT.....A FAMILY.  I TURN MY HEAD AWAY AND FEEL AWFUL................dream ends.

 TUESDAY 6/8 & WEDNESDAY 6/9/21

  YES , WE YOU'RE AT CERTAIN LOCATION , GOT SOME PROJECTS , AND A DOUCHE RENTER.....I FORGET WRITING ONE DAY.
 SO OVER THE LAST 2 DAYS THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED.

 GOOD RENTER - BAD RENTER.

 THE GOOD SENT ME ALL KINDS OF BEAR PICTURES ON OUR PROPERTY IN THE POCONOS. IT WAS SO COOL SEEING A YOUNG CUB HANGING ON OUR RAILING. NOW THE BAD.

 DROP MY YOUNGEST OFF AT HER ROW HOUSE RENTAL IN CENTER CITY. IT IS ALWAYS GOOD TO SEE HER ROOM MATES TOO. I DID TRY TO CONVINCE MY YOUNGEST TO COME WITH ME IN AT LEAST 10 DIFFERENT SCENARIOS. I REALIZED ICE CREAM EVERY DAY DOES NOT WORK ANYMORE.

 HERE WE GO. THERE IS ALWAYS ONE WHO JUST DOESN'T GET IT.

  A LADY COMPLAINED BUT KEPT SAYING " I'M NOT COMPLAINING " THAT WE DID NOT TELL HER TO BRING ALL BEDDING. SHE REPEATEDLY SAID THIS DURING TEXTING. MY FAULT IS REPLYING TOO LONG TO THE TEXTS MYSELF. I SHOULD OF RESPONDED , " K " AND LEFT IT ALONE. BUT NOOOOOO MY STUPID BLOOD THINKS I NEED TO TEACH PEOPLE A LESSON. SO BACK AND FORTH THE LONG TEXTS GO. THAN TURNS TO PHONE CALLS. THAN SHE USED THE " F " WORD AND I WENT CODE RED AND SCREAMED AT HER.  I KNOW WE TOLD HER TO BRING BEDDING DURING COVID. I ENDED UP BLOCKING HER NUMBER. MY ONLY QUESTION , " WHY FUCKING WAIT UNTIL YOUR LAST DAY WHEN FUCKING CHECKING-OUT TO TELL US THIS.? "  WHEN YOU ENTERED YOUR FIRST 3 SECONDS SHOULD OF BEEN , " WHERE THE FUCK IS THE BEDDING ? " YOU CALL ME AND I WOULD OF SAID , " TAKE THE HIDDEN KEY TO OUR LOCKED CLOSET AND USE THE BEDDING IN THERE ".....DONE.

 CONTINUED - HER CHECK-OUT WAS 11AM BY THE LEASE. SHE KEPT SAYING STUFF ABOUT WHAT THE LEASE SAYS. IT IS 1PM WHEN SHE CALLS AND I SAY , " YOU NEED TO LEAVE IMMEDIATELY. I HAVE A CLEANER AND PLUMBER AND NOW I AM DRIVING DOWN BECAUSE THIS IS SO SERIOUS. YOUR CHECK-OUT WAS 11AM". SHE SAYS SHE WAS WAITING FOR ME. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME ?? GET THE FUCK OUT.

 CONTINUED - SHE ALSO COMPLAINED ALL HOT WATER WORKED EXCEPT THE UPSTAIRS SHOWER. SHE TOLD ME THE MOST STUPIDEST IDIOTIC WAY OF FIXING THE HOT WATER PROBLEM. SHE SAID , " IT IS A SIMPLE 5 MINUTE FIX. JUST REMOVE THE SHOWER KNOB AND REPLACE IT MAKING IT TURN MORE. " I ALMOST LAUGHED AT HER FOR THIS INCREDIBLE BAD ADVICE.  SHE ASKS HOW FAR AWAY I AM AND I REPLY , " OVER AN 1 HOUR ". SHE REPLIES , " OH , I CAN'T WAIT THAT LONG. IT WAS WORDS I WANTED TO HEAR.

 CONTINUED - I AM UPSET NOW AND WHEELS CALLS ME. SHE SAYS GO TO THE DOG PARK FIRST BEFORE ARRIVING. I DID THIS AND IT HELPED. THERE WERE SOME NICE PEOPLE THERE , A SISTER DOG TO MAZE , AND A PIECE OF ASS GIRL IN SHORT SHORTS. MAZE HAD A BLAST AND I SETTLED DOWN.

 OH WHEEL'S IS HAVING A GOOD TIME ESPECIALLY WITH THEIR PRIVATE FISHING CHARTER BOAT. THEY CAUGHT OVER 40 FISH. LOOKS LIKE TOMORROW'S DINNER IS FRESH FISH.

 A LITTLE OVER AN HOUR I HEAD TO OUR CONDO. I AM SO THANKFUL HE RENTER IS NOT THERE. I AM NOT GOOD AT BEING NICE WHEN SOMEONE IS NOT BEING NICE TO ME.

 IT IS ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL HERE. I SETTLE IN AND BEGIN PROJECTS. I INSTALL MY ROKU IN SECONDS AND PLAY OUR SPOTIFY AWESOME PLAYLIST. NOW WORK BEGINS :

 - GO UPSTAIRS AND TURN THE SHOWER ON. HOT WATER STEAMS AFTER ABOUT 20 SECONDS. THE LADY AND HER ADVICE COULD NOT BE MORE STUPIDER. THIS IS ONE THING THAT I DO NOT NEED TO FIX. WHAT HAPPENS IN REALITY IS SOMEONE MUST OF SHOWERED DOWNSTAIRS AND USED THE HOT WATER UP. THE NEXT PERSON TRIED TO SHOWER UPSTAIRS BUT COULD ONLY GET LUKE WARM WATER. IT IS THE MOST COMMON THING THAT HAPPENS WORLD WIDE AND THIS LADY COULD NOT FIGURE IT OUT. IF SHE JUST WAITED 15-20 MINUTES HOT WATER WOULD OF BEEN RESTORED. I GUESS I SHOULD OF REMOVED THE KNOB AND MADE IT TURN MORE.

 - ICE MAKER IS NOT MAKING ICE. I BROUGHT A BRAND NEW HEAT GUN AND MELTED THE FROZEN LINE. I WAITED 24 HOURS AND IT IS NOW MAKING ICE BUT SUPER SLOWLY. NEXT I REMOVE ALL FOOD FROM THE FREEZER AND PLACE IN THE FRIDGE SECTION. I TURN OFF THE BREAKER AND REMOVE THE BACK PANEL IN THE FREEZER AND THE ICE MAKER ITSELF. A GOOD SIZE CHUNK OF ICE IS STUCK SO I USE THIS VERY GOOD HEAT GUN TO MELT IT AWAY. I RE-INSTALL EVERYTHING AND IT IS STILL MAKING ICE TOO SLOW. NEXT I PULL OUT THE FRIDGE AND CLEAN THE FLOOR. I NOTICE THE ICE MAKER'S WATER SUPPLY LINE IS SLIGHTLY KINKED IN 2 PLACES. I TRY TO STRAIGHTEN IT OUT AND PUSH THE FRIDGE BACK INTO ITS SPOT. AGAIN , ICE MAKING IS TOO SLOW. TOMORROW I WILL REMOVE THE WATER LINE AND TEST IT FOR FLOW.

 - I HEAR A RENTER HIT HIS VAN INTO MY NEIGHBOR'S GOLF CART. MY NEIGHBOR SCREAMED BUT IT WAS TOO LATE. IT LOOKS LIKE MINIMUM DAMAGE.

 - SECURE THE BOTTOM OF A DOOR FRAME THAT SUPPORTS THE SCREEN DOOR.

 - WINDEX FRONT WINDOWS AND DOOR ALONG WITH SILLS.

 - CLEAN TUB STRAINER. THE COMPLAINING RENTER LADY HAD RED HAIR. YES , I WAS GROSSED OUT TOO. IT LOOKED LIKE A RED TARANTULA WAS STUFFED IN THE DRAIN.

 - I BRING A LADDER AND PAINT OUR ALLEY WAY A/C UNIT SUPPORT BRACKETS. I WANTED TO SEE HOW BAD THEY WERE SINCE A FIRE CHIEF SAID I MAY NEED TO CHANGE THE SUPPORTS IN A YEAR OR SO.  THERE IS ONE BAD TINY LITTLE 2 INCH SECTION. I BLUE TAPED EVERYTHING AND PAINTED THE METAL SUPPORT BRACKETS WITH RUSTOLEUM PAINT I BROUGHT. IT CAME OUT NICE. WHEN I RETURN I WILL BRING WOOD TO SISTER THE TINY SUPER SMALL DAMAGED AREA OF BRACKET.

 - CLEAN A/C FILTER.

 - REMOVE A VERY LOOSE HALLWAY SWITCH PLATE. I SECURE THE SWITCH AND RE-INSTALL THE PLATE.

 OK THAT IS WHAT I REMEMBER OVER THE LAST 2 DAYS PROJECT-WISE.

 I DID WATCH AN EPISODE OF FEAR THE WALKING DEAD. IT WAS GOOD.

 I DID WATCH 2 EPISODES OF THE HANDMAID'S TALE. IT WAS GOOD.

 WATCH THE PHILLIES LOSE ON TUESDAY AND WIN A SUPER EMOTIONAL GAME ON WEDNESDAY. A ROOKIE HOMERS IN THE 9TH INNING TO GIVE THE PHILLIES A 2 -1 VICTORY. HIS FAMILY WAS THERE AND THE TV SHOWED THEM AND HIS FACE AFTER THE HOME RUN ACTUALLY MADE ME TEAR UP. OF COURSE , THE TEAM MATES DUMPED A TON OF WATER AND GATORADE ON HIM. HIS NAME IS LUKE WILLIAMS AND IT WAS THE ONLY THE 4TH PHILLIE EVER TO HIT A WALK-OFF HOME RUN IN HIS 2ND GAME.

 76ERS BUILD UP AN 18 POINT LEAD. I AM THINKING , " GOOD , LET'S KICK THEIR ASS FOR WHAT THEY DID TO US IN GAME ONE ". WELL , BY HALFTIME THE HAWKS CUT THE LEAD TO 2.....UNBELIEVABLE. I COULD NOT WATCH THE PAIN SO I SURFED OTHER SPORTS , SHOWS , AND PORN. TO MY SURPRISE WHEN I CAME BACK THE 76ERS HAD A 16 POINT LEAD. I WATCH THE REST OF THE GAME CONTENTLY.

 I MADE A VERY GOOD CHEESE STEAK FOR ONE DINNER.

 I TOOK A RIDE TO OWEN'S PUB. I WAS JONESING THEIR $9 SPECIAL OF MEATLOAF. IT COMES WITH MASH POTATOES AND BROCCOLI. I ALSO HAD 2 YUENGLING DRAFTS FOR A BUCK 50 EACH. THEY REALLY HAVE THE BEST SPECIALS IN TOWN.  MY ONLY THING WAS MY BARTENDER WAS NOT QUICK ENOUGH WITH JUST 10 CUSTOMERS. THE WAITRESS WAS SUPER POLITE. MY ONLY PROBLEM WAS WHEN I SAT AT THE 40 CHAIR BAR A GROUP OF 3 SITS RIGHT NEXT TO ME. I WANTED TO GET UP AND MOVE BUT FELT EMBARRASSED. JESUS....YOU HAD TO SIT RIGHT NEXT TO ME ? HE EVEN SAID , " HELLO AND THAT'S LOOKS GOOD ". I SO SHOULD OF MOVED. ALL I WANTED WAS A PEACEFUL 30 MINUTES OF BEER AND MEAT LOAF..........AND LOOK AT THE OTHER SUPER HOT BLONDE WAITRESS THAT I THOUGHT SHOULD BE MY BARTENDER.

 OH , OF COURSE MY FAVORITE POCONO RESTAURANT CHARLIE WEAVERS ANNOUNCES HOME MADE MEAT LOAF SPECIAL TONIGHT.....DAMN IT !!

 FACE TIME WITH MY YOUNGEST. THIS IS ALWAYS A TREAT. 2 DAYS AGO I TOLD HER I AM LEAVING NOW TO COME GET HER. I ASKED TONIGHT WOULD YOU HAVE GOT IN THE CAR AND COMEBACK WITH ME ? SHE REPLIED , " WELL YES , ONLY BECAUSE I WOULD OF FELT SO GUILTY FROM YOU DRIVING ALL THE WAY HERE."

 I BOOKED AN ACT WHO WAS ON THE VOICE IN SEASON 10. THE BAND NAME IS GINA ZO ( CASTANZO ). THEIR COACH ON THE VOICE WAS BLAKE SHELTON.

 I MAY REGRET THIS BUT SATURDAY'S ROCK SHOW WITH BE FOLLOWED BY A HIP HOP OVER 21 SHOW. I ONLY DID THIS BECAUSE THE GUY KNEW THE NAIL AND HIS VENUE CANCELLED ON THEM. I AM HOPING DOING SOMETHING NICE BRINGS GOOD KARMA.

 SEEING DOLPHINS ALMOST EVERY DAY. THIS IS ALWAYS SOMETHING SPIRITUAL TO ME.

 PLAYED ANOTHER $5 KNOCK-OUT REAL POKER GAME ONLINE. OVER 125 PLAYERS AND THE TOP 23 CASH. I CASHED AND KNOCKED OUT 1 PLAYER.

 I HAVE NOT BEEN SLEEPING THE BEST WHICH BLOWS.

  THURSDAY    6 - 10 - 21

 WITHOUT MY BAND BOOK I TOTALLY MIXED UP BANDS , DATES , AND A DOUBLE BOOKING BY ANOTHER BAND. A BAND CALLED " RAIL " WAS BOOKED BUT I SAW A FACEBOOK POST OF THEM PLAYING SOMEWHERE ELSE. WELP , I KNEW THERE WAS A REASON MY 3 EMAILS WERE NEVER RETURNED.....TIME TO SCRAMBLE. THIS IS THE PART I DID NOT MISS FOR OVER A YEAR.

 FLUX CAPACITOR.....FLUXING. ICE MACHINE MAKING ICE. I GOOGLED , " HOW OFTEN SHOULD AN ICE MACHINE DROP ICE ? " THE ANSWER - 90 MINUTES WOULD BE VERY GOOD. MY ICE MAKER DROPPED 3 TRAYS ONE HOUR EACH. I AM THINKING THIS IS SO GOOD....WAY BETTER THAN 90 MINUTES. THAN , IT TURNED TO 2 HOURS , BACK TO 90 MINUTES , AND THAN BACK TO 2+ HOURS.  HEY IT'S MAKING ICE.

 MAN I AM MESSING UP MY DATES WITH ANYTHING TO DO WITH BANDS AND THE NAIL. I TOLD MYSELF TO MOVE MY BAND BOOK FROM A HIDDEN PLACE IN MY BEDROOM ( INSIDE A PRINTER ) AND I FORGOT IT B4CAUSE TI9 WAS OUT OF SIGHT. EVEN MY YOUNGEST SAID , " YOU ARE BEING FORGETFUL ALOT LATELY. " I WAS SCRAMBLING TO FILL A SPOT IN FOR TOMORROW NIGHT BUT IT WAS ACTUALLY NEXT FRIDAY.

 PHILLIES JUST TORTURE US.  A 1 - 0 LEAD GOING INTO THE 9TH INNING. WHEELER IS PITCHING A GEM AND HAS 12 STRIKEOUTS. SO......WE PULL HIM FOR HECTOR NERIS TO " CLOSE ". FIRST BATTER HITS A HOMERUN TO TIE THE GAME. IN THE 10TH INNING THEY BRING IN JOSE AVOCADO ( I KNOW ITS ALVARADO ). HE WALKS THE BASES LOADED WITH 2 WILD PITCHES. BRAVES SCORE 2 RUNS WITHOUT A HIT. OH MY GOD. BUT.......PHILLIES RALLY WITH 3 RUNS IN THE BOTTOM OF THE 10TH TO WIN AGAIN BY WALK-OFF. I SWEAR YOU NEED A DEFIBRILLATOR TO WATCH THESE GAMES.

 OUTSIDE TO THE BEACH. I TAKE MAZE ON A WALK TO THE DOG PARK. THE WALK PLUS DOG PARK WAS OVER 2+ HOURS. MAZE HAD A GREAT TIME EXCEPT GETTING HUMPED A COUPLE OF TIMES BY AN OLDER GERMAN SHEPPARD. A SENT A VIDEO AND MY YOUNGEST RESPONDED , " OH MAZE IS HAVING SO MUCH FUN EXCEPT FOR THE ENDING. " ( THAT'S WHEN THE GERMAN SHEPPARD GOT INVOLVED WITH HIS PENIS ".

 EVERYONE AT THE DOG PARK WAS COOL EVEN THE SMOKE SHOW GIRL IN SPANDEX , BELLY SHOWING , TANK TOP , AND BRAIDED HAIR LIKE BO DEREK. ANYWAY , A DOG POOPED AND SHE YELLED OUT , " EXCUSE ME , WHO'S DOG IS THIS ? " SHE POINTED TO THE POOP AND A GUY PICKED IT UP. HEY.....PEOPLE SHOULD KEEP AN EYE ON THEIR DOG'S ASS AND NOT THIS GIRL'S ASS.

 THE BOARDWALK IS BUZZING WITH PEOPLE AND " WILDWOOD DAYS " IS PLAYING OCCASIONALLY OVER A LOUD SPEAKER. I SWEAR TO BE YOUNG AGAIN WOULD BE SO MUCH FUN.

 A VERY HOT GIRL POSTED ON FACEBOOK , " GUYS ALWAYS SAY THEY WANT TO MAKE A PORN VIDEO. THEY LAST 60 SECONDS SO SHOULD IT BE A TIC TOC VIDEO ? " SHE HAS A POINT. THIS GIRL IS A SUPER HOT BLONDE AND ALWAYS POSTS FUN AND SEXY PICTURES OF HERSELF DANCING OR IN A BIKINI OR WHATEVER. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT SHE DOES FOR A LIVING BUT ONE PICTURE SHOWED HER IN A 76ERS SUITE IN GAME 2. IT JUST GOES TO SHOW BEING A SMOKE SHOW HELPS IN LIFE.

 I STARTED SOME MINOR CLEANING. I ALSO MADE RIGATONI'S AND MEATBALLS WHILE WATCHING THE PHILLIES EXTRA INNING. I FIGURED MAKE DINNER NOW AND THAN AFTER THE WALK AND DOG PARK I BE READY TO EAT. IT WORKED PERFECT FOR I GOT BACK AT 7PM.

 I CUT THE LAWN , WEED WHACKED , AND LEAF BLEW. I ALSO PICKED UP TRASH AND CIGARETTE BUTTS ( MY NEMESIS ) ALONG WITH FILLING THE LAWN MOWER WITH FUEL BEFORE PUTTING IT AWAY. A FELLOW OWNER SAID SHE WAS GOING TO CUT THE LAWN TODAY. I REPLIED , " DAMN , I SHOULD OF WAITED AN HOUR ". SHE GIGGLED AND SAID , " WELL , TELL US WHAT WE OWE YOU FOR THE GASOLINE. " I REPLIED , " 44 CENTS. " I ACTUALLY HAVE NO PROBLEM CUTTING THE LAWN HERE.

 FINISHED ALL MY PROJECTS. I WATCH SOME EPISODES OF THE HANDMAID'S TALE. THEY WERE GOOD AND ONE ENDING WAS PREDICTABLE.....STILL GOOD THOUGH. I DID NOT KNOW IT WON AND WAS NOMINATED FOR SO MANY AWARDS.

  I EMAILED A RENTER 2 DAYS AGO ABOUT CODES AND ALLOWING THEM TO COME IN 2 DAYS EARLY. I SPECIFICALLY WROTE EMAIL ME BACK. I FINALLY CALLED AND SHE SAID I KEPT FORGETTING TO EMAIL YOU BACK. THIS IS THE STORY OF MY LIFE.

 TALKED TO MY PARENTS A LITTLE BIT. I ALSO TALKED TO MY MOM ABOUT HER VISIT TO MY COUSIN'S FUNERAL IN WASHINGTON. ONE BROTHER WAS NICE ENOUGH TO DRIVE HER. IN 6 MONTHS MY COUSIN WAS DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER. IN 6 MONTHS HE LOST 75 POUNDS AND LOOKED BAD. HE DID HAVE HIS FACULTIES AND COULD COMMUNICATE BUT WAS IN PAIN. THE PRIEST SHOWED UP FOR LAST RIGHTS AND SAID , " DO YOU KNOW WHAT IT MEANS THAT I AM HERE ? ARE YOU READY ? " MY COUSIN SIMPLY REPLIED , " I'M READY ".

 FRIDAY    6 - 11 - 21

 AND BEING THE " BAD COP " PARENT BLOWS............

 UP AT 5AM TO SEE THE 5:33AM SUNRISE. ANNNNNNND IT WAS OVERCAST SO NO SUNRISE SEEN. MAZE AND I DID ENJOY THE BEACH WITH NO ONE AROUND.

 START MY CLEAN , PREP , LOAD , STOP AT PRIMO HOAGIES , GAS UP , AND HEAD TO CENTER CITY.  I AM HAPPY WITH THE ICE MACHINE MAKING ICE TOO.  I ROLL OUT AND IT BEGINS TO RAIN. SO , WEATHER-WISE , I TIMED IT PERFECT.

  STOP IN CENTER CITY TO PICK UP MY YOUNGEST. RENTERS LEFT SOME THINGS SO I GAVE THEM TO HER ROOM MATE......PAPER TOWELS , TOILET PAPER , MICROWAVE POPCORN BAG , AND A SET OF SALT & PEPPER SHAKERS.

  I GIVE MY KID A BADA BING HOAGIE FOR LUNCH. SHE IS EXCITED FOR THAT. WE TALK AND LISTEN TO MUSIC. I JUST SO ENJOY BEING WITH HER.

 WHEELS CALLS AT PERFECT TIMING. MY YOUNGEST AND I TALK TO HER WHILE DRIVING HOME VIA THE " WHAT APP " WHICH IS KINDA COOL WHEN SHE IS 900 MILES AWAY.

 STOP AT THE NAIL TO TURN ON ICE MACHINE.

 AT HOME WE SETTLE IN AND HAVE LUNCH. SHE GETS PRIMO'S AND I GET LEFT OVER RIGATONI AND MEATBALLS.

 I HAVE AN EXTREMELY SERIOUS TALK WITH MY ELDEST. THINGS NEED TO CHANGE BIG TIME. I THOUGHT IT WENT WELL.....SO I THOUGHT. I HATE BEING THE BAD PARENT BUT THE BIG PICTURE IS SOME RULES HAVE TO BE LAID DOWN.

 OUR " OTHER " DAUGHTER / BARTENDER I ADORE MOVED INTO A NEW APARTMENT CLOSE TO US. IT WAS FUN HAVING HER HERE. WE STOPPED BY TO SEE THE PLACE AND HELPED HER AND FAMILY LOAD THINGS INTO THE HOUSE. THE APARTMENT IS GOOD PRICED , CLEAN , SPACIOUS , AND EXCELLENT LOCATION. THE ONLY PROBLEM WAS THE ONE ENTRANCE ( AT LEAST AS OF TODAY ) WAS A 2 STORY FIRE ESCAPE STAIRCASE. HOLY SHIT IT WAS HIGH. IT WAS GOOD TO SEE HER PARENTS , UNCLE & AUNT , AND FRIENDS.

 WE ROLL TO THE NAIL AND PREP FOR THE BAND. I HAVE MY YOUNGEST CLIMB ON TOP OF OUR WALK-IN FREEZER TO PLACE ANOTHER BOX FAN TO MOVE AIR. I INSTALLED A TIMER TOO.

 THE BAND U-4-E-aH HAS NOT PLAYED IN 23 YEARS. IT WAS FUN TO SEE LIVE MUSIC ON OUR STAGE AND THE BAND WAS SUPER APPRECIATIVE THINKING US FOR ALLOWING THEM TO PLAY HERE. TO ME, IT IS REVERSED. THE LEAD SINGER GAVE " OPEN " BAR " THE WHOLE NIGHT. THAT WAS PRETTY NICE OF THEM. WORKING WITH MY YOUNGEST WAS AWESOME. SHE WAS QUITE PLEASED WITH HER TIPS. I THINK SHE MADE MORE THAN THE BAR.

 76ERS STEP UP BIG TIME TO WIN GAME 3. THEY TAKE THE LEAD IN THE SERIES 2 - 1. I MEAN REALLY STEPPED UP. THEY KEPT THE HAWKS AT ARMS LENGTH THE ENTIRE GAME AND ENDED UP WINNING BIG. IT WAS SO NICE TO SEE A GOOD SOLID OFFENSIVE AND DEFENSIVE GAME. IT WAS VERY UN-PHILADELPHIA LIKE.

 MY YOUNGEST AND I ROLL HOME. WE WATCH A REALLY GOOD DRUNK HISTORY EPISODE WITH WILL FERRELL AND SETH ROGAN AND I CAN'T STAY AWAKE FOR 22 MINUTES.

 OFF TO BED AND SLEEP GREAT UNTIL 2:30AM. THAN MY CELL " PINGS ". THIS IS NOT GOOD.   

  SATURDAY   6 - 12 - 21

 TOP 5 BEST BAND TO COME THROUGH OUR LITTLE DIVE BAR ?......I THINK SO.

 FACEBOOK MARKETPLACE - A WOMAN TELLS ME , " MORE PEOPLE ARE NO-SHOWS. IF YOU WANT THIS YOU CAN HAVE IT. I DON'T KNOW WHO YOU ARE BECAUSE SO MANY HAVE INQUIRED ABOUT THIS SINK AND FAUCET I'M GIVING AWAY ".  MY REPLY , " I'M THE ONE THAT RESPONDS IMMEDIATELY EVERY SINGLE TIME AND WILL PICK IT UP TODAY. "

 I DRIVE TO NEWTOWN SQUARE AND PICK UP A LIKE-NEW SINK , FAUCET , AND ALL DRAIN PLUMBING. I WILL REMOVE ALL PLUMBING STUFF , TRASH OR SELL THE SINK , AND PLACE NEW FAUCET & ACCESSORIES ON A REPLACEMENT COUNTERTOP I AM DOING IN THE WOMEN'S BATHROOM AT THE NAIL.

 ABOUT 10 BANDS HAVE CONTACTED ME ABOUT BOOKING IN THE LAST 24 HOURS. THIS IS FEELING GOOD. NOT ALL ARE A FIT BUT MOST WILL HAVE A SHOWS HERE.

 TAKE A RIDE TO THE NAIL TO TURN ON A/C , PREP FOR THE NIGHT , CHANGE THE MARQUEE , AND MORE.

 BACK HOME I CHILL , HAVE A TALK WITH MY ELDEST , AND PICK UP WHEELS FRESH BACK FROM BERMUDA VIA A PRIVATE PLANE. THAT IS PRETTY DAMN COOL. OH , MY YOUNGEST AND THE PUP TOOK A RIDE WITH ME. BOY WAS EVERYBODY TO SEE MAZE.

 BACK HOME AGAIN WE TALK TO A FRIEND AND SEE PICTURES OF BERMUDA. THE FISHING TRIP AND ALL KINDS OF FISH THEY CAUGHT WAS PRETTY COOL.

 THEY ORDER FOOD AND I HEAD TO THE NAIL. I SEE KIDS CHANGED OUR MARQUEE FROM " ESKIMO BROTHERS " TO " PENIS BROTHERS ". GOOD SENSE OF HUMOR. OH , MY NEIGHBOR PLACED A 1/2 CASE OF EMPTY BEERS CANS AT OUR FRONT DOOR. ONCE A DICKHEAD ALWAYS A DICKHEAD.

 I LOAD IN THE BANDS. OF COURSE ANOTHER NEIGHBOR IS LEAVING THE BACK LOT AS ONE BAND MEMBER IS COMING IN. JESUS....THE TIMING.

 SHOW STARTS WITH DAVID GRAHAM AND THE ESKIMO BROTHERS. THIS BAND FROM NASHVILLE CLIMBS INTO THE TOP 5 BEST BANDS TO COME THROUGH OUR TINY BAR. A ROCKABILLY BAND THAT PLAYED JOHNNY CASH , STRAY CATS , ELVIS , ORIGINALS , AND MORE. HOLY SHIT THEY WERE GOOD. I REALLY LIKED THE VERY LARGE PEARL WHITE STAND UP BASS.

 SOME NOTES ON THEM AND THEIR FANS : 

 - THIS IS THE FIRST OUT OF STATE BAND TO EVER BRING FANS TO OUR BAR. THEY CAME FROM DRIVING DISTANCES OF 45 MINUTES TO 2 HOURS.

 - IN NASHVILLE , IF YOU ARRIVE 2 HOURS BEFORE THEIR SHOW.....YOU WON'T GET IN.

 - A WELL OFF COUPLE IN THEIR 60'S FROM NORTH EAST PHILLY TRAVELS AND FOLLOWS THIS BAND. SEVERAL TIMES DURING THE PANDEMIC THEY GAVE THEIR STIMULUS CHECKS TO THE BAND. THE ALSO WENT TO AN OUTBACK STEAKHOUSE IN SPRINGFIELD AND SAID IT WAS THE BEST FOOD THEY EVER HAD. THEY TIPPED THE WAITRESS $100.

 - SAME COUPLE AS SOON AS THEY ARRIVED SAID , " HERE IS MY CREDIT CARD. HAVE ALL THE DRINKS FOR THE BAND ON US AND TIP THE BARTENDER $100. " THEY WEREN'T THERE 5 MINUTES AND DID THIS. THAT IS PRETTY DAMN COOL.

 - I POSTED SOME 30 SECOND SNIPPET VIDEOS OF THE BAND ON SOCIAL MEDIA. ONE SOCIAL MEDIA COMPANY ALREADY " SHARED " IT.

 - LEAD SINGER HAD A SILVER SHARPIE EXPLODE IN HIS HAND WHILE SIGNING AN AUTOGRAPH. WE GAVE HM A BRILLO PAD AND BACK KITCHEN SINK TO CLEAN UP. IT LITERALLY LOOKED LIKE HE DIPPED HIS HAND IN SILVER PAINT.

 IT WAS A FUN NIGHT FOR LIVE MUSIC AGAIN. THE BARTENDERS WERE EXCELLENT AND ADORABLE. I HAD A BLAST WITH THEM ALL NIGHT.

 PHILLIES WIN THEIR 3RD STRAIGHT WALK-OFF WIN. THIS TIME AGAINST THE YANKEES IN 10 INNINGS. OH , HECTOR NERIS BLEW A 3 RUN 9TH INNING LEAD. OH RICHARD , IS YOUR FAVORITE BASEBALL TEAM THE YANK---EEEES !!

 MY ELDEST STOPPED DOWN WITH 8 FRIENDS OR SO. THAT WAS COOL.

 TALKED TO A VERY NICE ASIAN GIRL WHO WAS THE LEAD SINGER'S GIRLFRIEND AND A BARTENDER. SHE TIPPED EXTREMELY WELL. I OFFERED TO BUY A DRINK OR SHOT FOR HER AT THE END OF THE NIGHT AND SHE WOULD NOT ACCEPT IT.........SO SHE BOUGHT ME ONE AND HER BOYFRIEND. THE FUNNY THING IS WHEN SHE TOLD ME , " DO YOU KNOW WHAT ESKIMO BROTHERS MEAN ? " I SAID , " NO ". SHE REPLIES , " WHEN 2 GUYS HAVE HAD SEX WITH THE SAME GIRL. " MY RESPONSE , " THE INFORMATION THAT COMES THROUGH OUR BAR NEVER FAILS TO AMAZE ME. " I WONDER IF SHE MEANT HER BOYFRIEND / LEAD SINGER WANTED TO BE AN ESKIMO BROTHER......WITH ME.

 THIS ASIAN GIRL BARTENDER WAS SHORT AND ADORABLE. WHEN SHE ENTERED I SAID , " WE ARE RUNNING A SPECIAL TONIGHT. IF UNDER 4 FOOT TALL YOU GET IN FREE. " SHE GIGGLES AND SAYS , " THAN I'M GLAD I WORE MY SNEAKERS.....I'M 4'11" !!!!! ".

 I TALKED TO ALL KINDS OF PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER THE AREA AND FURTHER. IT WAS PRETTY FUN. MY FAVORITE WAS 2 OLDER HIP HOP GUYS WHO I BOOKED A SHOW WITH NEXT SATURDAY. ONE GUY WAS THE BRUTE SQUAD. EVEN THE BAND ACKNOWLEDGED HIM AND BROUGHT THE BIG BOUNCER ON STAGE. IT WAS FUNNY. THEY BOUGHT PIZZA , DRINKS TEE SHIRTS , AND TIPPED THE BARTENDERS WELL. ONE BARTENDER TOLD ME , " THEY WERE SUPER COOL ."

 SOLD SOME " SAVE THE NAIL " TEE SHIRTS.

 WE END THE NIGHT AND ROLL OUT. I WAS GOING TO STOP AT A LOCAL PUB WITH MY YOUNGEST AND HER ROOM MATE TO MEET UP WITH MY ELDEST AND HER FRIENDS. WE KINDA GOT SIDE TRACKED WHEN MY YOUNGEST SAID , " I CAN GO FOR SOME FRENCH FRIES. " I GROAN .......WE HAVE DONE THIS MANY TIMES.

 SO WE BYPASS STOPPING AT THE LOCAL PUB AND HEAD TO MCDONALDS....CLOSED. HEAD TO WENDY'S.....CLOSED. HEAD TO ANOTHER MCDONALDS......CLOSED.

 WE DRIVE HOME AND SEE OUR ELDEST OUT FRONT OF THE LOCAL PUB WITH FRIENDS. SHE TELLS US TO COME IN BUT THEY WERE CLOSING. WE DECIDE JUST TO HEAD HOME.

 NO FRIES SO WE DECIDE ON ICE CREAM.....NO ICE CREAM.

 I HAVE ONE VERY BAD PBR POUNDER AND WE WATCH 2 EPISODES OF DRUNK HISTORY. THEY  WERE GOOD.

 OFF TO BED. THAT WAS A LONG DAY.

  SUNDAY       6 - 13 - 21

 YOU ARE SO TOUGH.....UNTIL THE COPS COME.

 PHILLIES SWEEP YANKEES IN 2 GAME SERIES. THIS HAS NOT HAPPENED SINCE 1985. NOLA PITCHES EXCELLENT IN 7 - 0 WIN.

 ARRIVE AT THE NAIL TO SET-UP FOR TONIGHT. ONE THING I THINK IS GOOD IS CLEANING THE ICE MACHINE THOROUGHLY BUT I PLACED 2 PIECES OF WOOD UNDER THE FRONT FEET TO TILT IT BACKWARDS. THE WATER CASCADES MUCH BETTER OVER THE CUBE CONTAINERS. IT WAS THE MOST ICE I HAVE SEEN IN THE BIN IN A LONG TIME. I WAS VERY PLEASED WITH THIS. I WAS ALSO DISAPPOINTED I DID NOT DO THIS 10 YEARS AGO.

 CHANGE MARQUEE , CLEAN A LITTLE , POST ON SOCIAL MEDIA , AND PREP FOR TONIGHT'S SURPRISE BIRTHDAY PARTY.

 A NICE DINNER WITH MY YOUNGEST ROOM MATE. IT WAS FUN.

 MY YOUNGEST , ROOM MATE , AND MYSELF HEAD TO THE NAIL FOR A PARTY TONIGHT. THE FIRST 60 MINUTES BEFORE ANYONE ARRIVES WE CLEAN. WE VACUUMED , WIPED EVER7YHTIGN DOWN , AND SCRUBBED THE BEJESUS OUT OF ALL PIZZA PANS. IT HELPED I SOAKED THEM FOR 5 HOURS EARLIER. 

 FRIENDS START ARRIVING AND THE PARTY IS FUN.....FOOD , MUSIC , LAUGHS , AND SOME REGULARS STOPPED BY. I KNOW EVERYONE INCLUDING MY ELDEST AND ANOTHER DAUGHTER. I TELL THE BARTENDERS TO GET A RIDE HOME WITH THEM AROUND 11:30PM. I HEAD HOME.

 CHILL WITH WHEELS FOR JUST 15 MINUTES. WE HEAD TO BED.

 I AM WATCHING TV AND MY CELL PHONE PINGS. THE BARTENDER TEXTS ME VERY UNRULY PEOPLE JUST ENTERED. I REPLY , " I AM ON MY WAY ". IN SECONDS I AM DRESSED AND DRIVING TOWARDS THE NAIL. I BLOW THROUGH RED LIGHTS AND PULL OUT FRONT TO SEE 3 AFRICAN AMERICANS SCREAMING AT EACH OTHER. THIS MOVES TO THE MIDDLE OF THE STREET AND THAN TO MY NEIGHBORS FRONT PARKING LOT.  I BACK UP MY CAR ON HAVERFORD ROAD UNTIL THE DRIVEWAY. I IMMEDIATELY PARK IN THE BACK AND CALL 9 1 1.

 OUTSIDE WITH THE POLICE ON THE PHONE I DESCRIBE THE SITUATION. THESE PEOPLE ARE SCREAMING AND ONE GUY THROWS A GIRL TO THE GROUND. THEY ARE WRESTLING AND YELLING AND CURSING A SAILOR BE EMBARRASSED ABOUT. I SAY TO THE DISPATCH ON THE PHONE , " CAN YOU HEAR THEM SCREAMING ? " HE REPLIES , " YES ". I REPLY , " THERE OVER 200 FEET AWAY. " HE GASPS.

 OH , WHEN THE POLICE ARRIVED BOY DID THEY STOP SCREAMING......QUIET AS A MOUSE. NOT SO TOUGH TO EACH OTHER NOW.

 THE COPS TAKE ALL OF THEM AWAY. I GO INSIDE AND AT 1AM I FIGURE OUT WHY THESE PEOPLE WERE HERE. I CLOSE THE PARTY AND SEND EVERYONE ON THEIR WAY.

 I DRIVE HOME WITH MY YOUNGEST AND ROOM MATE. WE WATCH AN EPISODE OF DRUNK HISTORY AND THAN OFF TO BED. YEP.....FUN NIGHT......BLOW.

  MONDAY     6 - 14 - 21

   THERE IS A GOOD REASON OF NOT WRITING TODAY AND MAN DOES IT MAKE ONE FEEL INADEQUATE.......... ESPECIALLY AS A PARENT. I FELT MELANCHOLY THE WHOLE DAY.

  OH , IT'S 2AM AND I WAS SUPPOSE TO SLEEP GOOD TONIGHT. IT IS NOW 4:30AM.

  TUESDAY       6 - 15 - 21

 THE BIG PICTURE...... I SEE. THE HURTFUL ANSWERS.......I SEE. THE CHOICE.....I SEE. IT STILL DOESN'T MAKE IT PAINFUL........TO ME.

  BEEN UP SINCE 4:45AM.

  WEDNESDAY      6 - 16 - 21

  YEP.....IT'S 2:30AM.

 I HAVE ALOT GOING ON BUT I JUST DON'T FEEL LIKE WRITING ABOUT IT. THERE IS ONLY ONE THING ON MY MIND AND I DON'T FEEL IT IS EVEN RIGHT TO TALK ABOUT ANYTHING INSIGNIFICANT LIKE MY MINISCULE LIFE.

 THURSDAY     6 - 17 - 21

 I JUST ERASED ALOT OF WHAT IS GOING ON. 

 THIS BLOG IS BASICALLY FOR THE NAIL AND FAMILY WHO LIKE TO KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON IN MY TRIVIAL LIFE. I  WILL WRITE A LITTLE.

 SO....HERE'S SOME THINGS GOING ON IN A SHORTEN VERSION :

 - WORKING WITH  A COMPUTER TECH WE SPEND 3 1/2 HOURS AND NOTHING IS ACCOMPLISHED. I GET MY YOUNGEST INVOLVED AND IN 11 MINUTES THEY DOWNLOADED WHAT WAS NEEDED. ELEVEN.........FUCKING......MINUTES.

 - 76ERS......MOST BRUTAL LOSS I CAN THINK OF. THEY WERE 165 - 0 WITH A 25+ POINT LEAD IN THE 2ND HALF.....NOT ANYMORE. BEN SIMMONS WAS 4 - 14 AT THE FOUL LINE. THIS WAS THE WORST PLAYOFF PERCENTAGE IN THE HISTORY OF THE NBA. WORST GAME EVER.

 - PHILLIES LOSE 2 OF 3 TO DODGERS.....BLOW.

 - HELP MY BROTHER MULCH HIS TREE BEDS AGAIN. THE MULCH IS THE BEST I EVER SEEN IT.

 - WEED ENTIRE PROPERTY AND VEGGIE GARDEN.

 - PICK UP YOUNGEST IN CENTER CITY ( SURPRISE HER WITH THE PUPPY ) , TAKE HER TO DENTIST , DRIVE TO NAIL , RETURN TO PICK HER UP AT DENTIST , DO A NICE CHINESE DINNER ON OUR PATIO , AND DRIVE HER TO THE TRAIN STATION. I WAITED WITH HER UNTIL THE TRAIN GOT THERE. TWO THINGS WE NOTICED - A HUGE DOG POOP IN THE PARKING LOT. I MEAN THE DOG HAD TO BE A HORSE. THE 2ND THING ONLY I NOTICED......SMOKING HOT BLONDE.

 - OPEN MIC JUST JAM RETURNS. OH MY GOD WAS IT NICE TO SEE. I SOLD " SAVE THE NAIL " SHIRTS AND EVERY SINGLE MUSICIAN SAID IT WAS SO NICE TO SEE ME AND THE NAIL. TWO MUSICIANS WANT TO START THEIR OWN NIGHT WHICH BE COOL.

 - SINCE CLEANING AND TILTING THE ICE MACHINE BACKWARDS IT HAS MADE ICE THE BEST I HAVE SEEN N OVER 2 DECADES. THE REAL TEST WILL BE THE HEAT FO SUMMER.

 - WATCHED EPISODES OF BIG SKY ( VERY GOOD ) AND THE KOMINSKI METHOD ( VERY GOOD )

 - I HAVE HAD A CONTINUOUS FLOW OF PHONE CALLS OR EMAILS FROM BANDS WANTING TO PERFORM HERE......KINDA COOL TO SAY THE LEAST SINCE FOR 14 MONTHS I HAD NO LIFE AND FELT LIKE A GUY WITH NO BALLS OR COCK.

 - BROUGHT TRASHCANS DOWN TO CURB AND RETURNED EMPTY ONES FROM THE DAY BEFORE. IT FELT LIKE I RAN A MARATHON.

 - FOUND AN OLD TAPE RECORDER I USED FOR INTERVIEWING SPORTS PLAYERS WHEN I WROTE FOR A LOCAL NEWSPAPER. I WILL NOW USE IT TO REMEMBER DREAMS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT.

  THERE IS THE QUICKIE. PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD THE NAIL IS BOOKING BANDS AGAIN. THANKS.

  FRIDAY        6 - 18 - 21

 MADE MY DAY AND NIGHTTTTTTTTTT !!!  76ERS SOME HOW PULL OFF WIN IN ATLANTA TO FORCE A GAME 7. I HAD A GREAT TIME WATCHING THE GAME AT THE NAIL WITH THIS REALLY NICE BLONDE GIRL. I TOLD HER SHE WAS GOOD LUCK AND SHE EMITTED POSITIVITY THE WHOLE GAME. I ALSO ASKED HER TO COME BACK TO THE NAIL ON SUNDAY NIGHT FOR GAME 7.

CHRISTIAN ROCK.....NOT THE WORST. LEAD SINGER WAS SUPER COOL. HE REMINDED ME AND PLAYED LIKE ZZ TOP.

  HOOK UP THE TRAILER AND GOT MORE MULCH. THIS TIME IT WAS FOR OUR GARDEN. WHEELS PICKED UP SOME SEEDS AND WE WILL PLANT VERY SOON. LOVE THAT FRICKIN' TRAILER......BEST EVER.

 WORKED THE NAIL BY MYSELF.....DOOR MAN , BARTENDER , SOUND MAN , AND COOK.

 A BAND MEMBER DRUMMER USES A HEAD SET TO HEAR THE LEAD VOCALS. HE TOLD ME IT HAS SAVED HIS EARS SINCE 2007. I WAS PRETTY SURPRISED HE DID NOT KNOW HOW TO HOOK IT UP TO OUR PA SYSTEM. WE FIGURED IT OUT.

 WATCHED AN EPISODE OF THE KOMINSKY METHOD. IT IS VERY GOOD AND IT KINDA SUCKS IT'S ONLY 6 EPISODES AND THE LAST SEASON. WHEELS STARTED THE HANDMAID'S TALE.

 PHILLIES LOSE AGAIN. NOT THAT TOO MANY PEOPLE WATCHED IT BUT PEACOCK AIRED THE GAME. THANK GOODNESS FOR MY ROKU SO I DID WATCH IT. ACTUALLY......WHO CARES BUT IT WAS COOL SEEING DIFFERENT ANNOUNCES LIKE JAYROLL AND OTHERS.

 OH , REMEMBER GABE KAPLER WHO WE RIDICULED ABOUT HIS COACHING ABILITIES WITH THE PHILLIES AND FIRED HIM ? ALL SOCIAL MEDIA , FANS , AND SPORT'S TALK HOSTS SCREAMED SHIT ON HIM. HIS SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS HAVE THE BEST RECORD IN ALL OF BASEBALL.

 TOOK A NICE MOTORCYCLE RIDE TO THE NAIL.

 LOOKS LIKE FB MARKETPLACE WILL STRIKE TWICE TOMORROW. WE WILL SEE. NOT SURE IF I WROTE THIS BUT I DID SELL THE PS3 CONTROLLERS FOR $30. I BOUGHT THEM FOR $25 A MONTH AGO THINKING THEY WERE PS4 CONTROLLERS. THEY WEREN'T AND DIDN'T WORK.

 YOUNGEST DID NOT TEXT ME WHEN SHE GOT HOME VIA TRAIN TO CENTER CITY. YES , I SLIGHTLY WENT INTO A PANIC MODE.

 WHEELS TESTS FOR SLEEP APNEA.

 I USE A CPAP MACHINE TO FILL UP AN INFLATABLE BED. HEY , SOMETIMES YOU GOTTA MACGYVER.

 SINCE MONDAY I HAVE SLEPT HORRIBLY AND THE WORSE I CAN REMEMBER. WHEN YOU KEEP THINKING ABOUT ONE THING IT IS SO HARD TO FALL ASLEEP.

 TOMORROW WILL BE A VERY LONG DAY.

  SATURDAY        6 - 19 - 21

 SO , I YESTERDAY SAID I HAD A LONG DAY TODAY.  12 HOURS AT THE NAIL PLUS BELOW.  OH , I WAS UP AT 5AM.

 AT 6:30AM I AM AT MY BROTHER'S HOUSE DRIVING HIS FAMILY TO THE AIRPORT.

 BACK HOME I DO WEBSITE BLOGGING , BAND EMAILING , FACEBOOKING , INTERNET SURF , PLAY A POKER GAME , AND WATCH PORN.

  FB MARKETPLACE - AT 12 NOON I MEET A GUY AT HOME DEPOT.  HE IS TWICE THE SIZE OF ME AND I FEEL SO SKINNY. THE EXCHANGE IS MADE.

  FB MARKETPLACE - I DRIVE 20 MINUTES TO ROYERSFORD. OUR YOUNGEST HAS A COLEMAN AIR BED BUT NO AIR PUMP TO FILL IT. UNBELIEVABLY , I FOUND A COLEMAN ELECTRIC PUMP FROM A SMOKE SHOW ASIAN GIRL.

 IN ROYERSFORD I HAVE A TRADITION , STOP AT SONNY ITALIAN DELICATESSEN. I PICK UP A CHICKEN SALAD SANDWICH AND CHICKEN CUTLET  SANDWICH. IT WAS A SHAME BECAUSE THE SUPER FUN WIFE WAS NOT THERE. I TOOK AN OUTSIDE PICTURE AND PUT IT ON OUR FACEBOOK PAGE SAYING , " DO YOU KNOW THIS PLACE ? "

 BACK HOME I TEST THE COLEMAN ELECTRIC PUMP AND IT WORKS PERFECT.

 WHEELS AND I FINISH THE 3RD AND LAST SEASON OF THE KOMISKY METHOD. IT WAS EXCELLENT.

 WE HAVE LUNCH AND I HEAD TO THE NAIL AT 1:30PM.

 WHEELS PICKS UP YOUNGEST AT TRAIN STATION AND THAN DRIVES HER TO THE NAIL AROUND 4:30PM.

 WE HAVE 2 SHOWS TODAY.

 FIRST SHOW AT 5PM WAS A CHRISTIAN ROCK SHOW. SUPER SUPER NICE PEOPLE THAT DO NOT DRINK. I DID ENJOY THE PEOPLE AND THE MUSIC. THEY DID NOT CRAM RELIGION DOWN YOUR THROAT. ONE BAND MEMBER DID GIVE THE BARTENDER A " METAL BIBLE " WITH A $20 BILL IN IT. WE HAD BANDS FROM WEST VIRGINIA , TENNESSEE , NEW JERSEY , AND LOCAL. AGAIN , ALL SUPER COOL.

 2ND SHOW WAS A HIP HOP COMPANY I DECIDED TO GIVE A CHANCE. IT HAD TO BE AN OVER 21 EVENT. I MET THEM LAST WEEK AND BOTH GUYS ARE VERY COOL. THIS 10PM SHOW AMAZED ME AS THEY CHARGED $25 A HEAD. I AM THINKING NO WAY ANYWAY IS SHOWING UP FOR THIS EVENT. WELL , OVER 60 PEOPLE DID AND WE GOT SLAMMED. I GAVE  A 2ND BARTENDER OFF AND FELT BAD. A COUPLE OF MINOR OCCURRENCES BUT ONE OF THE GUYS DID THE DOOR FOR ME AND HE IS THE SIZE OF A HOUSE. I ASKED HIM AT THE END OF THE NIGHT , " DID ANYONE GIVE YOU TROUBLE ? " HE REPLIES , " NO ONE EVERY GIVES ME TROUBLE " AND GIGGLES. HE WAS LITERALLY THE BRUTE SQUAD. OVERALL , OUR BARTENDER SAID EVERYONE WAS VERY COOL.

 I DECIDE TO GET PEACOCK STREAM SERVICE AT THE NAIL. I WATCHED THE PHILLIES WIN ONE FOR A CHANGE.

 HIP HOP SHOW + NETS VS BUCKS GAME 7 = FUN. WOW WHAT A GAME. I AM REALLY NOT LIKING THE HOME TEAM LOSING SO MUCH IN THE PLAYOFFS. OUR 76ERS PLAY SUNDAY NIGHT AROUND 8PM. THEY WORKED SO HARD TO GET HOME COURT ADVANTAGE. I HOPE THIS GAME 7 HAS A BETTER OUTCOME THAN THE BROOKLYN NETS HAD. I WILL BE  A WRECK TONIGHT. 

 WE DO A 30% CLOSE AND JUST TOO TIRED. TOMORROW WE WILL GO BACK DOWN TO FINISH.

 BACK HOME AT 2AM. WE WALK THE PUP AND BASICALLY HEAD RIGHT TO BED.  NOW THAT IS A LONG DAY.

    SUNDAY    6 - 20 - 21

 TOTALLY TIME TO DIET AGAIN. I WILL START ON MONDAY.

 A NICE FATHER'S DAY BUT STILL NOT WHOLE.

  9AM MEETING PUSHED TO 1:30PM PUSHED TO 2PM. YEP , I HAVE A REALLY GOOD COMPUTER TECH BUT HE IS HARDER TO GET WITH THAN GOD HIMSELF. 

 I SIT OUTSIDE ON A NICE MORNING WITH THE PUP AND SPORTS RADIO ON. I SEW A PATIO UMBRELLA. YEP.......SEW.

  A NICE GROUP PHONE CALL WITH OUR IMMEDIATE FAMILY. THIS IS ALWAYS WONDERFUL. 

 YOUNGEST AND I HEAD TO THE NAIL. FOR 2 1/2 HOURS SHE WORKS WITH OUR COMPUTER TECH TO UPDATE OUR SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM WHILE I CLEANED AND DID SO MANY OTHER PROJECTS. BOTH OF US WERE BUSY SOLID FOR 2 1/2 HOURS. IT WAS A VERY GOOD USE OF TIME.

 THE LAST 1/2 HOUR I JOIN MY YOUNGEST WITH OUR TECH. HE IS REMOTING FROM CLEVELAND. WE GET THE UPDATING DONE ON OUR CAMERAS AND IT IS A BIG WEIGHT OFF MY SHOULDERS.  WE PAY HIM VIA VENMO AND TIP HIM $30. HE ALSO ADDED POP-UP BLOCKERS TO MY KIDS COMPUTER ALONG WITH GIVING HER GAMES AND UPDATING HER PICTURE FORMATTING.

 ROLL HOME AND START THE BBQ WHILE FAMILY ARRIVED ( ACTUALLY THEY WERE BEFORE ME ). I PUT THE PHILLIES GAME ON FOR MY DAD VIA THE PEACOCK STREAMING SERVICE. IN HINDSIGHT , MAYBE I SHOULDN'T HAVE....THEY LOST 13 - 2.

 MISS-COUNTED MAKING BURGERS AND DOGS. DAMN IT......I SACRIFICED AND DID NOT HAVE A BURGER. I THINK BURGERS ARE ON MY TOP 3 FOOD LIST FOR FAVORITES.

 YOUNGEST GETS A RIDE IN HER UNCLES NEW SPORTS CAR. YEAH......IT WAS COOL.  A NICE DINNER ( DAD SAID BURGERS CAME OUT EXCELLENT ) INSIDE. WE WERE GOING TO BE OUTSIDE BUT IT WAS A JUST A LITTLE TOO WARM. IT WAS NICE TO CHILL WITH FAMILY.

 EVERYONE ROLLS OUT AND WE WATCH THE 76ERS IMPLODE IN A DEVASTATING LOSS.  THEY WERE SO GOOD AT HOME DURING THE REGULAR SEASON BUT LOST A SICKENING 3 OUT OF 4 HOME GAMES AGAINST THE HAWKS. AFTER WINNING GAME 6 I REALLY THOUGHT THEY WIN GAME 7 AT HOME. DOES ANYBODY ELSE HATE TRAE YOUNG'S FACE ?

 76ERS LOSING JUST TOTALLY SUCKS. FANS BOOED AND YELLED " TRADE SIMMONS " AT THE END OF THE GAME. THERE WERE SO MANY THINGS THAT WENT UNBELIEVABLY RECORD SETTING BAD AND WRONG DURING THIS SERIES IT WAS DOWNRIGHT GUT WRENCHING.  I ACTUALLY FELT SICK WATCHING THIS GAME. EVERY TURNOVER MADE ME GRIMACE WITH PAIN.

 HEY , UNION SOCCER TEAM WITH A NICE COMEBACK TIE.

 OFF TO BED MELANCHOLY.

 WELP , I'VE BEEN UP SINCE 3:45AM AND NOW IT IS 6:30AM. GUESS I WILL GO BACK TO BED AND TRY TO GET A COUPLE MORE HOURS OF SLEEP.
