     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      11 - 8 - 20

 THE WEATHER JUST CONTINUES TO BE GORGEOUS AND THERE ARE STILL A TON OF PEOPLE HERE......AND ASS.

  WE TAKE A BIKE RIDE THE LENGTH OF THE BOARDWALK AND THAN ANOTHER 3/4 OF A MILE TO THE EDGE OF WILDWOOD CREST. I FELT BAD FOR WHEELS FOR HER ASS WAS HURTING BIG TIME. IT'S THE FIRST TIME SHE WAS ON A BIKE IN A LONG TIME. I GAVE HERE MY GEL SEAT AND MASSAGED HER ASS WHEN WE GO BACK HOME.......WITH MY COCK. WE TALKED TO SOME PEOPLE AND STOPPED A COUPLE OF TIMES TO CHILL ON A BENCH AND JUST ENJOY NATURE. WILDWOOD CREST IS REALLY BEAUTIFUL.

  I AM ONLY JOKING ABOUT MASSAGING WHEELS' ASS WITH MY COCK. I USED MY BALLS TOO. MAN , HOW DO WOMAN EVER SEE ANYTHING GOOD ON A GUY'S BODY ? JESUS , WE ARE HAIRY ( UNLESS YOU GET A BRAZILIAN ) , SMELLY , HAVE A RUBBER BONE-LIKE THING THAT PROTRUDES OUT AND TOTALLY INVADES YOUR PERSONAL SPACE , AND SHOOTS STUFF AT YOU. WHAT WOMAN IN HER RIGHT MIND WANTS THIS ?

 BACK HOME WE WALK THE PUP ALONG THE BEACH AND GO TO THE DOG PARK. IT WAS ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS. OF COURSE  WE STOPPED SO PEOPLE CAN SAY HELLO TO CRAZY MAZE. THE DOG PARK WAS A BLAST EXCEPT FOR ONE DOG WHO GOT MAD AT MAZE FOR BEING A NUDGE. THE OWNER ACTUALLY HAD TO PICK UP HIS DOG OVER HIS SHOULDER AND HE LEFT. HIS DOG WAS NOT TOO FRIENDLY TO MAZE....THAN AGAIN MAZE CAN BE AN ASSHOLE.

 WALK BACK VIA THE BEACH AND THERE ARE STILL ALOT OF PEOPLE ENJOYING THE BEACH. A FAIR AMOUNT OF CARS AND FISHERMEN TOO.

   PFIZER AND BIOnTECH ANNOUNCED A VACCINE HAS BEEN 90% AFFECTIVE AGAINST COVID - 19. THIS IS A HUGE SCIENTIFIC ACHIEVEMENT OVER THE PREVIOUS NOT TOO AFFECTIVE MILK AND VITAMIN D VACCINE.  NOW , HOW DO WE VACCINATE 330 MILLION PEOPLE IN OUR COUNTRY ?.........TWICE PROBABLY.

  BACK HOME WE CHILL FOR ALITTLE BIT. I ACTUALLY NAP FOR ABOUT 15 MINUTES. WE WALK TO THE BEACH WITH CHAIRS AND THE PUP AND WATCH THE SUN SET OVER OUR NEIGHBORING AMERICAN INN MOTEL.

  FAMILY STOPS BY AND WE HEAD TO DINNER AT THE INLET.  THIS TIME ONLY A FEW PEOPLE WERE THERE AND ONE DICKHEAD COWGIRL FAN. THANK GOODNESS THE STEELERS CAME BACK AND WON. WE SHARED A CHICKEN SANDWICH , CHICKEN PARMIGIANA PLATTER , AND FISH & CHIPS. OUR FOOD WAS GOOD AS ALWAYS AND SO WAS OUR WAITRESS STACY. WHEELS AND I TREATED ON THE $200 BILL. I REALLY THINK WE HAVE A DRINKING PROBLEM.

  CONGRATS TO THE UNION SOCCER TEAM FOR WINNING THE LEAGUE AND CUP. NOW......TO THE PLAYOFFS.

 BACK HOME WE CHILL WITH A NIGHTCAP AND WATCH WHO'S LINE IS IT ANYWAY ( JESUS COLIN MONTGOMERY'S FACE JUST MAKES US LAUGH ) AND WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE. WE END THE NIGHT WATCHING AN EXCELLENT SHOW CALLED AWAY. I THINK WHEELS CRIED 3 TIMES.....ME TWICE.

 OFF TO BED AND SLEPT GOOD WITH THE PUP. SHE REALLY IS BECOMING MY BEST FRIEND.

 ON A VERY SAD NOTE ALEX TREBEK PASSED AWAY. JUST LAST WEEK HE WAS ON STAGE FILMING JEOPARDY. HE REALLY SEEMED LIKE A VERY GOOD PERSON.

  MONDAY     11 - 9 - 20

  ANOTHER PICTURE PERFECT INDIAN SUMMER DAY. TOMORROW HIGH TEMPS COULD TIE OR BEAT RECORD WARMTH.  IT IS SO CALMING WALKING THE BEACHES WITH THE OCEAN WAVES AND SOUNDS.

  TO THE DOG PARK IS ON THE DAILY SCHEDULE. WE MET " SCOUT " , " BAILEY ",  AND " ZEUS " ( BIG 7 MONTH NEW FOUNDLAND ) ALONG WITH OTHER PUPS. ALMOST ALL DOGS WERE UNDER 2 YEARS OLD. I TOOK PICTURES AND VIDEOS AND SENT THEM TO THE KIDS.

  WALK BACK ALONG THE BEACH PICKING UP SEA SHELLS AND TALKING TO PEOPLE WITH OTHER DOGS. I JUST CAN'T GET OVER THIS MAGNIFICENT WEATHER IN NOVEMBER. MOST LIKELY THIS WILL BE THE LAST BEFORE WINTER COMES.

 WHEELS WORKING EXTREMELY HARD WITH MEETINGS AND PREPPING FOR A PRESENTATION TOMORROW. I FEEL BAD I CAN'T HELP IN ANY CAPACITY.

  WATCH 2 EPISODES OF FEAR THE WALKING DEAD. BOTH WERE VERY GOOD.

  NEW JERSEY CREATES A MANDATE THAT ALL BARS MUST CLOSE INDOOR SEATING AND SERVING AT 10PM. FROM WHAT I HAVE SEEN I MAKE IT EARLIER.  BARS WERE ABSOLUTELY PACKED THIS WEEKEND. MOST PEOPLE WENT HOME.

 DOING IT RIGHT.....THE CREST TAVERN. I HAVE NOT BEEN HERE IN A WHILE BUT THEY HAD VERY NICE OUTDOOR SEATING WITH AMBIANCE LIGHTING , HEATERS , AND DECORATIONS. WE BLEW THIS OFF ONLY BECAUSE NO ONE WAS THERE. WE SAT AT THE BAR WITH PLASTIC SHIELDS SEPARATING THE BAR TOP EVERY 6 FEET. THIS MADE US FEEL COMFORTABLE. EVERYONE WORE MASKS WHICH IS A GOOD RESPONSIBLE THING TO DO SO WE SAT AT THE BAR. WE ORDERED ROASTED PORK SANDWICH WITH PROVOLONE AND ITALIAN SHRIMP PARMIGIANO. I THOUGHT THE ROAST PORK WAS VERY GOOD AND THE SHRIMP DISH OKAY. OUR BARTENDER TARA WAS NICE. BY THE TIME WE LEFT 10 PEOPLE CAME IN SO WE TIMED THIS GOOD. MORE CARS WERE PULLING UP AS WE LEFT THE PARKING LOT. THIS TELLS YOU ONE THING......THE CREST TAVERN HAS GOOD FOOD AND PRICING.

 CRUISE HOME SLOWLY AND I THINK I WANT TO HAVE DAIRY QUEEN FOR THE FIRST TIME ALL YEAR. I FEEL THIS BE NICE SO WE HEAD THERE. DAIRY QUEEN WAS CLOSED. AND THAT MY FRIENDS IS PRETTY MUCH THE STORY OF MY LIFE.

 BACK HOME I WALK THE PUP AND WE SETTLE IN. WE WATCH 3 EPISODES OF AWAY. ALL WERE EXCELLENT. WHEN YOU YELL AT THE TV SCREEN ON WHAT CHARACTERS ARE DOING.....THAT MEANS THE WRITING AND ACTORS ARE EXCELLENT.

 I DID FALL ASLEEP SO I HAVE TO RE-WATCH A LITTLE BIT OF THE ENDING OF ONE AWAY.

 OFF TO BED WITH THE PUP. I AM JUST SO TIRED AROUND 10PM. 

  TUESDAY    11 - 10 - 20

  $500 FOR $50,000 ? WOULD YOU DO IT ?.............I DIDN'T. WORSE ......FUCKING LUCK......EVER. IT WILL BE THE LAST FUCKING PAINFUL STORY.

 ANOTHER PICTURE PERFECT DAY AND IT WAS TOO WARM. WALKING ON THE BEACH I ACTUALLY WAS SWEATING.

 WATCHED THE SUNRISE WITH THE PUP AND TOOK PICTURES AGAIN. I DON'T WANT TO LEAVE.

 TAKE THE PUP TO THE DOG PARK. THE FIRST HOUR WAS GOOD AND CRAZY MAZE PLAYED WITH 3 OTHER DOGS. THEY LEFT AND A LADY BROUGHT IN A SMALLER DOG TO THE BIG DOG SIDE. OF COURSE MAZE ROLLED HER LITTLE DOG TWICE. SHE TRIED TO CALM MAZE DOWN......SO I GOT MAZE AND WE LEFT. I MUMBLED SHE WAS AN ASSHOLE WHEN LEAVING.

 BACK HOME WE CHILL FOR A LITTLE BIT. I DO SOME ODD JOBS.

 TAKE A BIKE RIDE ALONG THE BOARDS. IT IS ALMOST TOO WARM OUT BUT I HAVE MY HEADPHONES ON AND LED ZEPPELIN'S " MOBY DICK " IS PLAYING. THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE ZEP TUNES ESPECIALLY RIGHT AFTER THE LONG 15 MINUTE DRUM SOLO BY JOHN HENRY BONHAM. JUST AS THE DRUM SOLO IS ABOUT TO END AND THE SUPER COOL , HIGH ENERGY , MY FAVORITE PART , LEAD GUITAR JIMMY PAGE COMES IN ANNNNNNND............MY BATTERIES DIE.

 AT HOME I WATCH THE WALKING DEAD : WORLD BEYOND. IT WAS GOOD.

 I SPEND OVER AN HOUR CLEANING , LOADING , FIXING , AND PREPPING FOR DEPARTURE. IT WAS TIME TO ROLL OUT.

 WE STOP AT WAWA AND GET SANDWICHES FOR THE KIDS.

 BY 7:30PM WE ARE IN CENTER CITY VISITING OUR YOUNGEST. WE TALK FOR A WHILE AND IT IS BEAUTIFUL OUT. HER 2 STREETS OUR TREE LINED AND THE LEAVES CHANGING COLORS IS BEAUTIFUL. A TON OF PEOPLE WALKING DOGS SO MAZE GOT TO SAY HELLO. ALSO , SOME ASS WAS OUT TONIGHT....DAMN TO BE YOUNG AGAIN.

 I ASKED OUR ELDEST 3 TIMES TO PICK ME UP A BOX OF STUFF VIA FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE. SHE DIDN'T SO WHEELS AND I TOOK A 5 MINUTE RIDE TO GET SHAVING CREAM , BAY OIL , GLUE , STUFF FOR MAKING SLIME , AND MORE.....ALL FREE. THE ONLY REASON I DID THIS WAS I HAVE BEEN SHAVING WITH SOAP THE LAST WEEK AND SAW THIS WOMAN WAS GIVING AWAY ALOT OF IT. ALL NEW CANS SO WHY NOT ? YES , THIS IS BEING CHEAP AND THE LAST STORY WILL SHOW WHY BEING CHEAP CAN TOTALLY BACK FIRE.

 DURING THE RIDE WE TALK ABOUT SELLING THE NAIL AND ONE RENTAL PROPERTY. I AM FUCKING PAINED TO EVEN BRING THIS SUBJECT UP. THE COVID PANDEMIC IS CRUSHING ME.

 WE GET THE FACEBOOK MARKETPLACE STUFF AND ARRIVE HOME. WE UNLOAD AND MAKE BEDS FOR ABOUT 30 MINUTES. I FUCKING HATE LOADING AND UNLOADING SHIT.

 WE EAT OUR HOAGIES AND TALK TO OUR ELDEST. WE RE-WATCH AN EPISODE OF THE QUEEN'S GAMBIT WITH OUR KID. THAN WHEELS AND I WATCH AN EPISODE OF AWAY. BOTH WERE VERY GOOD.

 OFF TO SLEEPING IN MY OWN BIG BED. I SLEPT HORRIBLE. I WAS UP AT LEAST 10 TIMES THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT. I EVEN LISTENED TO SPORTS TALK RADIO 4 DIFFERENT TIMES.

 IN AN ABANDONED HOUSE ACROSS THE STREET I LOOK FOR STUFF I COULD USE AT OUR HOUSE. THERE HAS BEEN NO MOVEMENT IN THIS HOME FOR ABOUT 1 YEAR. I ENTER SLOWLY AND IMMEDIATELY SEE BLOOD ON THE FLOORS AND WALLS. THIS CAN'T BE GOOD. FURTHER SEARCHING I SEE 4 BODIES. ALL WERE KILLED PRETTY VIOLENTLY. I IMMEDIATELY CALL THE POLICE AND GO OUTSIDE FOR THEIR ARRIVAL. AFTER 45 MINUTES OF WAITING I GO BACK TO OUR HOUSE. ANOTHER 1 HOUR GOES BY AND THERE IS A KNOCK ON THE DOOR....IT'S THE POLICE. WE WALK OVER TO THE HOUSE AND IT HAS BEEN FULLY CLEANED. THE COPS AND MYSELF CAN NOT FIND ANY BLOOD , BODIES, OR WRONG DOINGS. I AM FREAKING OUT. WE WALK AROUND THE STREET TO THE BACK YARD AND SEE A PARKED CAR ON A HILL HALF FILLED WITH WATER. I CAN SEE A WOMAN UNDER WATER IN THE FRONT SEAT AND HER FACE IS WHITE & STILL WITH HER EYES OPEN. I IMMEDIATELY OPEN THE DOOR. THE WATER COMES RUSHING OUT AND SEVERAL PEOPLE IN THE BACK SLOWLY FILTER OUT. THE POLICE ASK , " WHO DID THIS TO YOU ? " A MAN WHO CAN BARELY WALK AND GET OUT OF THE CAR REPLIES , " IT WAS WENDELL COW.........WENDELL COW DID IT. " THE OFFICER CALLS FOR AN APB AND KNOWS EXACTLY WHO THIS PERSON IS............dream ends.

 OUR FRIEND R.B. IS DRIVING WHEELS AND I TO A BANQUETTE. HE IS DRIVING US SO WE DO NOT  HAVE TO USE UBER. I KEEP ASKING OUR FRIEND , " WHAT DO YOU SAY ? " BOTH HE AND WHEELS SAY AT THE SAME TIME , " WHAT ARE TALKING ABOUT ? " I TELL THEM I KEEP HEARING VOICES SO MAYBE IT'S IN MY HEAD. NEITHER OF THEM BELIEVE ME. FINALLY I HAVE TO ANSWER WHOEVER IS BOTHERING ME. I KEEP ANSWERING THEIR QUESTIONS IN MY HEAD. I DON'T WANT TO SAY ANYTHING OUT LOUD BECAUSE WHEELS AND OUR FRIEND WILL THINK I'M FAKING IT OR GOING CRAZY. FINALLY I'M PISSED AND YELL OUT , " IF YOU'RE REALLY REAL THAN UNZIP MY PANTS AND PULL OUT MY COCK !!! " WHEELS AND OUR FRIEND JUMP AND FREAK OUT. BOTH OF THEM SAY AT THE SAME TIME , " WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT !!??!! "

 CONTINUED -  I LAY ON MY BACK ACROSS WHEELS LAP AWKWARDLY AND SCREAM OUT , " GO AHEAD....FUCKING DO IT !!! "  A GREEN CYLINDER SHAPED OBJECT FLIES BEHIND OUR VEHICLE AND PASSES RIGHT THROUGH THE BACK WINDSHIELD. A LOW GREEN LIGHT ILLUMINATES THE BACK SEAT AND MY PANTS BEGIN TO UNBUCKLE AND MY FLY UNZIPS. WHEELS' FACE IS ASTONISHED AS MY COCK FLIPS OUT ( IT LOOKED REALLY BIG TOO ) . SHE SCREAMS , " OH MY GOD !!!! HOW DID THAT HAPPEN ????!!!! "............dream ends.

 OK , SO I AM DONE MY DREAM WRITING. THIS IS SOMETHING THAT IS SO FUCKING PAINFUL TO WRITE ABOUT. BACK IN MARCH WE ASKED OUR ACCOUNTANT TO FILE UNEMPLOYMENT FOR US AND ANY OTHER GRANTS WE COULD ACHIEVE DUE TO COVID-19. HE ROUTED ONE OF HIS EMPLOYEES TO US AND THE CHARGE WAS $500. I THOUGHT THIS WAS A LITTLE EXPENSE FOR 500 BUCKS. WITH THE NAIL BEING CLOSED AND NO MONEY COMING IN I TEXTED , MESSAGED , AND EMAILED OTHER FRIENDS AND BAR OWNERS. THEY ALL SAID IT WAS EASY TO FILE ONLINE VIA THE GOVERNMENT'S WEBSITE. SO , I DO IT ON MY OWN. OF COURSE WE NEVER GOT ANY MONEY EVEN THOUGH EVERY 2 WEEKS WE DID RECEIVE A CONFIRMATION EMAIL THAT OUR ACCOUNT HAS BEEN UPDATED AND PAID. EVERY TIME WE OPEN THE ACCOUNT........NO MONEY WAS IN THERE. FOR 9 MONTHS THIS GOES ON AND UP TO TODAY. I THINK ABOUT IT 100X TIMES A DAY THAT ALL OTHER OWNERS ARE GETTING HELP. IT FUCKING INFURIATES ME.

 CONTINUED - I TEXT MY ACCOUNTANT AND TELL HIM THE STORY. HE LEADS US TO THE WORKER WHO WANTED TO DO OUR FILING FOR $500 9 MONTHS AGO. HE TELLS US WE FILED WRONG. WE SHOULD OF FILED UNDER " EMPLOYEE " AND NOT " OWNER ". THOUGH WE RECEIVED A GOVERNMENT DEBIT CARD , NOTIFICATIONS , AND EMAILS SAYING MONEY HAS BEEN DEPOSITED ON THE CREDIT CARD IT WAS STILL FILED WRONGLY THUS MAKING IT VOID. TOTAL LOSS IS A 25K GRANT PLUS $600 A WEEK SINCE MARCH......ABOUT 50 GRAND. I AM SICK TO MY STOMACH AND ALMOST STARTED CRYING WHEN HE TOLD US THIS.

    WEDNESDAY      11 - 11 - 20

  SO WHAT MOOD WOULD YOU BE IN IF YOU LOST 50K ?

 I AM JUST SO SICK OF EVERYTHING AND ACTUALLY TOLD WHEELS AND OUR ELDEST I DON'T EVEN CARE IF I GET COVID AND DIE. WHEELS WOULD RE-MARRY THE DAY OF MY FUNERAL AND PROBABLY BRING THE GUY TO THE SERVICE. HE WOULD KNEEL AND SAY A PRAYER OVER ME THINKING , " WOW , HE STILL LOOKS FAT ".   MAYBE THEY CAN COLLECT THE 1 MILLION DOLLAR INSURANCE ON ME. THOUGH I AM SURE THERE IS A CLAUSE SAYING IF I WAS OVER 300 POUNDS IT CAN'T BE COLLECTED.

 SO I START MY SHITTY DAY.

 I BROUGHT OUR BASEMENT COFFEE TABLE TO THE SEASHORE. IT LOOKS GOOD AND I LIKE HAVING A 2ND TABLE THERE. TECHNICALLY , IT WAS ORIGINALLY THERE BUT NOW WE NEED A COFFEE TABLE FOR OUR BASEMENT. SO , I SEARCH FACEBOOK MARKETPLACE. IN UNDER 15 MINUTES , I FOUND A BRAND NEW TABLE WITH 4 MARBLE INSERTS FOR FREE. IT IS REALLY NICE. AROUND 10AM , I DROVE TO UPPER DARBY AND PICKED IT UP. IT IS SO NICE WHEELS WOULD LIKE IT IN OUR MAIN TV ROOM. I ALSO DROVE BY A DAIRY QUEEN AND I DIDN'T STOP.........WHICH IS A BIG ACCOMPLISHMENT FOR ME.

 I ALSO STOPPED AT THE NAIL TO CHECK ON MAIL AND BRING BEER HOME. I TALK TO A BAND MEMBER AND HE LIKE TO BOOK A SMALL SHOW HERE. I TELL HIM COVID CASES ARE AT AN ALL TIME HIGH ALONG WITH HOSPITALS BEING PACKED AT AN ALL TIME HIGH. HE TELLS ME , " BUT THE DEATH RATE IS NOT AS HIGH." I GUESS HE IS A TRUMP SUPPORTER. I TELL HIM I CAN NOT HAVE SHOWS IN GOOD CONSCIENCE. IF JUST ONE PERSON DIED THAT BE LIFE CHANGING HORRIBLE FOR ME. I WISH OUR PRESIDENT THOUGHT LIKE THAT.

 MY COUSIN POSTED HIS SON-IN-LAW'S SISTER DIED OF COVID-19. SHE WAS A BEAUTIFUL YOUNG BLONDE.  I TRULY FEEL WE NEED A TOTAL SHUT DOWN AND GET THIS DAMN VACCINE MADE FOR MILLIONS IMMEDIATELY. I READ A 2ND COMPANY CAME OUT WITH A VACCINE TOO.

 AT HOME I SIT AT MY DESK AND TRY TO FIGURE OUT A WAY TO CONTACT THE UNEMPLOYMENT OFFICES. I TEXT OUR ACCOUNTANT WITH AN UPDATE.  DEEP DOWN I KNOW PEOPLE JUST DON'T CARE.

  DRIVE ACROSS STREET TO DROP OFF OUR TOYOTA RAV THAT NEEDS NEW TIRES. I TALK TO THE MECHANIC AND WANT TO FLIP FLOP WITH THE MAZDA JEEP I LEFT LAST WEEK. WELL , THE MAZDA NEEDS TIRES NOW AND IS NOT READY FOR INSPECTION. OH , AND HE SAID THE FRAME UNDERNEATH IS NOT LOOKING GOOD AND I SHOULD GET RID OF THE CAR IN ONE YEAR. THIS IS THE VEHICLE I USE TO PULL THE UTILITY TRAILER. I JUST LEAVE BOTH CARS THERE AND SAY TAKE AS LONG AS YOU LIKE I DON'T FUCKING CARE ANYMORE. I WALK HOME IN THE MIDDLE OF CONESTOGA ROAD HOPING A BEER TRUCK WOULD HIT ME.

 I CLEAN UP THE COFFEE TABLE AND THE MARBLE INSERTS. I BRING IT DOWN THE BASEMENT AND WATCH TV FOR ABOUT 90 MINUTES. I WATCHED AN EPISODE OF  THE WALKING DEAD : WORLD BEYOND. IT WAS VERY GOOD EXCEPT THE MAIN FEMALE LEAD IS 100 POUNDS OVER WEIGHT. HOW THE  HELL CAN YOU BE OVERWEIGHT POST APOCALYPSE ?

 MAKE A FACEBOOK POST ABOUT THE NAIL BEING OPEN BUT ALWAYS CALL FIRST.

 TOMORROW I WILL CONTACT DELCO STRONG AGAIN. MAYBE SOME ASSISTANCE CAN COME FROM THERE SINCE THEY WERE THE ONLY ONES THAT STEPPED UP........ALONG WITH TRYING TO CONTACT THE GOVERNMENT.

 OFF TO THE NAIL AT 5:30PM. I FIGURED I AM SITTING AROUND DOING DICK SO WHY NOT DO DICK AT THE NAIL ?

 THE RAIN COMES DOWN AND THE FIRST THING I THOUGHT OF WAS OUR ROOF LEAKING. I WAS APPRECIATIVE THAT MY ROOF PATCH I DID 2 MONTHS AGO HELD........NO LEAK.

 CONESTOGA ROAD IS SHUT DOWN DUE TO WORK ON THE BRIDGE. WHAT A FUCKING HASSLE. TRAFFIC ALL OVER THE PLACE. SO , STAY AWAY FROM CONESTOGA ROAD AND LANCASTER AVENUE.....BOTH BLOW.

 GOT A LEAD FOR A SIDE JOB TO PUT A VENT CAP BACK ON UNDER A SOFFIT. IT WOULD TAKE ABOUT 30 SECONDS TO DO.YEP........

 MY AUNTS WANT ME TO INSTALL A PULL BAR NEAR THEIR TOILET TO GET UP MORE EASILY AFTER POOPING. YEP.........

 I GET A CALL FROM ROSEMONT COLLEGE. THE GUY IS ASKING IF I LIKE TO BUY AN AD ON THEIR COLLEGE'S PAPER.  YEP.......

 YEP = NO OR DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING IT.

 I WATCH AN EPISODE OF DEADLIEST CATCH. THEY MENTION COVID AND PRICE DROPPING OF CRAB.

 LOST SEVERAL KEYS ON MY LAPTOP'S KEYBOARD. SO , I ADDED A 2ND KEYBOARD. ALWAYS FUCKING SOMETHING. FUNNY....ON DEADLIEST CATCH THE CAPTAIN'S KEYBOARD MALFUNCTIONS.

 BACK HOME I GET TO SEE OUR ELDEST FRIEND. SHE IS MY FAVORITE. OF COURSE MAZE RUNS OUT TO GREET HER OFF-LEASH. IT WAS FUN GETTING HER BACK IN.

 WE WATCH AN EPISODE OF AWAY. IT WAS EXCELLENT. I DID FALL ASLEEP SO I NEED TO RE-WATCH ANYWHERE FROM 10 TO 40 MINUTES OF IT.

 OFF TO BED HOPING I SLEEP BETTER THAN LAST NIGHT. MAYBE I WILL COUNT 50,000 SHEEP.

  THURSDAY      11 - 12 - 20

 TOMORROW IS FRIDAY THE 13TH.....JUST FUCKING GREAT.

 OVER $1,100 IN BILLS FOR 2 CAR INSPECTIONS AND A HAIR CUT.........JUST FUCKING GREAT.

 PICKED UP CAR IN RAIN. SUN ROOF IS LEAKING.......JUST FUCKING GREAT.

 WHEN A RENTER SAYS , " IF YOU WANT TO RENT IT TO SOMEONE ELSE , PLEASE DO. " THIS INSTANTLY TELLS ME THEY DO NOT WANT TO RENT OUR HOME. I'VE BEEN HOLDING THE DATE FOR THIS FAMILY FOR 2 MONTHS. TODAY THEY OFFICIALLY CANCELLED 2 WEEKS BEFORE THEIR RENT DATE........JUST FUCKING GREAT.

 I TRIED CALLING UNEMPLOYMENT OFFICE FROM 6AM TO 11AM. I FINALLY GOT THROUGH BY USING RE-DIAL 500 TIMES FOR 5 FUCKING HOURS. THE MESSAGE WAS , " THIS NUMBER IS NOW DISCONNECTED ".......JUST FUCKING GREAT.

 EMPLOYMENT OFFICE NOW HAS 2 DISCONNECTED PHONE NUMBERS AND 2 EMAIL ADDRESSES THAT BOUNCE BACK.......JUST FUCKING GREAT.

 OVER 5 YEARS AGO I MADE A LIST OF ALL THE GOOD THINGS OF OWNING THE NAIL. WELL , THIS PANDEMIC IS TEETERING THE SEESAW. TODAY , I TALKED TO A REALTOR.

 IS IT ME OR HAS IT RAINED 4 STRAIGHT DAYS SINCE WE GOT BACK FROM THE SEASHORE ?

 RE-WATCHED AWAY. JESUS , IT'S A 49 MINUTE EPISODE AND I MISSED 39 MINUTES BY FALLING ASLEEP LAST NIGHT. IT WAS VERY GOOD.

 I TURN ON CNN AND THEY ARE INTERVIEWING AN EXPERT WHO SAYS TRUMP SHOULD CONCEDE AND THIS HAS NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE. I TURN ON O.A.N. AND THEY ARE INTERVIEWING AN ATTORNEY WHO SAID THEY FOUND 1.6 MILLION " GHOST VOTES. " MAN ARE COUNTRY IS DIVIDED RIGHT DOWN THE DAMN MIDDLE.

 I CONTACTED DELCO STRONG AND THEY IMMEDIATELY GOT BACK TO ME SAYING I SHOULD CONTACT MY STATE REPRESENTATIVE WHO IS REP JENNIFER O'MARA

 I ALSO ASKED DELCO STRONG 2 TEAM IF I BE ELIGIBLE TO APPLY AGAIN. THEY SAID YES BUT DELCO STRONG 3 JUST ENDED ON MONDAY......JUST FUCKING GREAT. THEY DID SAY THERE WAS A BILLION DOLLARS IN FUNDS TO STILL HELP SO IT WILL RE-OPEN AGAIN. THEY ALSO GAVE ME 3 LEADS.....2 FOR FUNDING AND ONE FOR OUR LOCAL REP GREG VITALI....WHO THEY NOW SUGGEST CONTACTING.

 I CONTACT GREG VITALI'S OFFICE AND I TALKED TO THEIR SERVICE ADVISOR. HE SAID HE WOULD PUT MY EVALUATION AND CLAIMANT NUMBER IN WITH THE OTHERS. IT COULD TAKE 4 - 6 WEEKS BECAUSE MANY OTHER PEOPLE HAD THE SAME PROBLEM OF NOT RECEIVING ANYTHING FROM UNEMPLOYMENT. I AM EXTREMELY RELUCTANT TO JUST GIVE A CLAMANT NUMBER AND HOPE THE GOVERNMENT SAYS , " OH YEAH , WE SHOULD GIVE HIM 50K IN BACK PAY.....HE'S FAT AND NEEDS IT FOR DAIRY QUEEN ". AINT' NO FUCKING WAY THAT'S HAPPENING.

 SO , I WRITE AN EMAIL TO VITALI PERSONALLY. IT INCLUDES BOTH OF US BEING FROM HAVERTOWN AND VOTING FOR HIM EVERY YEAR SINCE HE HAS BEEN IN POLITICS. WE MET SEVERAL TIMES TOO. I WANTED TO MAKE IT MORE PERSONAL FOR MY EVALUATION. MOST LIKELY A JANITOR WILL READ IT AND THROW IT IN THE TRASH.

 OFF TO THE NAIL IN THE RAIN. I STOP AND GET GAS BECAUSE I AM IN NO HURRY. IT IS 5:30PM.

 OPEN UP AND CLEAN FOR A LITTLE BIT. I ACTUALLY THINK IF WE SELL THE NAIL FOR PENNIES ON THE DOLLAR AND AT THE WORST TIME I STILL HAVE A SHIT LOAD TO MOVE OUT OR SELL ON THE INTERNET.......FOR PENNIES ON THE DOLLAR. I MEAN WHAT THE HELL DO I DO WITH BAR STOOLS , TABLES , SOUND SYSTEMS , REFRIGERATORS , MUSIC EQUIPMENT , SECURITY SYSTEM CAMERAS ?....OH GOD I DON'T EVEN WANT TO THINK ABOUT IT.

 NOT ONE PERSON CAME IN ON THIS CRAPPY RAINY NIGHT. IT IS GETTING TO THE POINT OF NOT WORTH BEING OPEN. IT COULD BE A TIME TO ROLL OUT. MAYBE THIS TIME I WILL HEAD NORTH.

 AT HOME WE CHILL AND WATCH 2 EPISODES OF AWAY. THEY WERE EXCELLENT.

  I CHECK OUR THERMOSTAT AND IT IS ONE DEGREE BELOW MY 70 DEGREE SETTING. I THINK THIS IS STRANGE BUT GO TO BED. I TOSS AND TURN ALL NIGHT AND OF COURSE PEE.

 AROUND 4AM I GET UP BECAUSE IT IS COLD. I CHECK THE THERMOSTAT AND IT IS NOW 4 DEGREES BELOW THE 70 DEGREE SETTING. I NOW REALIZE SOMETHING IS WRONG. I CHECK THERMOSTAT AND IT WAS TURNED OFF.......JUST FUCKING GREAT.

 FRIDAY     11 - 10 - 20

 IT COMES DOWN TO WHO YOU BELIEVE.

  DO WE BELIEVE THE POLITICIANS , DOCTORS , AND NEWS AGENCIES ON TV ......OR......THE SOCIAL MEDIA INTERNET SITES ?

 HOSPITALS ACROSS THE COUNTRY SAY THEY ARE PACKED AND OVERWHELMED WITH STAFF DYING. DOCTORS BEING INTERVIEWED PLEADING TO FOLLOW THE RESTRICTIONS OF MASK WEARING AND SOCIAL DISTANCING. THAN , I TALK TO ONE NURSE AND SHE SAID HER HOSPITAL IS FINE. IT COMES DOWN TO WHO YOU BELIEVE.

 TONIGHT WHEELS AND I AGREED THAT WE WILL SPEND THANKSGIVING WITH NO FAMILY. THE NEWS IS ASKING ANYONE THAT LIVES OUTSIDE YOUR HOUSE SHOULD NOT BE GETTING TOGETHER. THE NEWS SAYS CASES ARE SPIKING AT SUPER HIGH RECORDS AND COMPLETELY OUT OF CONTROL. SO , WE WILL RIDE IT OUT.  IT COMES DOWN TO WHO YOU BELIEVE.

 TODAY I SEE A FELLOW BAR OWNER WRITE , " FUCK THIS GETTING PUSHED AROUND. I SAY WE STAY OPEN AND POOL OUR MONIES TOGETHER. WE CAN GIVE IT TO WHOEVER NEEDS IT. " IT COMES DOWN TO WHO YOU BELIEVE.

 START MY DAY BYPASSING AIRBNB AND CONTACTING A PERSPECTIVE RENTER. THE POSSIBLE FUTURE RENTER FINDS THIS WEBSITE BUT DOES NOT WANT TO BOOK OUTSIDE THE AIRBNB SITE. I RESPONDED , " I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH THAT. AIRBNB CHARGE WILL BE $1788 WHILE OURS DIRECTLY WOULD BE $750. YOU CAN PUT YOUR $1788 DEPOSIT DOWN ANYTIME YOU LIKE. "......FUCKING PEOPLE. I WANT TO GET TO KNOW OUR RENTERS JUST ALITTLE BIT INSTEAD OF COMPLETE STRANGERS ENTERING OUR HOME THAT TOOK US 5 YEARS TO BUILD WITH OUR OWN HANDS. 

  WHEELS PUTS IN ANOTHER FULL DAY OF WORK AND THAN GOES FOOD SHOPPING WITH OUR ELDEST. THE BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENT OF THE MORNING WAS GETTING OUR ELDEST UP TO GO A DOCTOR'S APPOINTMENT.

  I SPEND SOME TIME ON OUR ROOF REMOVING A SHITLOAD OF PINE NEEDLES IN THE ROOF VALLEY'S FLASHING.  I SWEAR A 300 POUND FAT GUY SHOULD NOT BE DOING THIS. I COULD SEE 2 PIZZA SHOPS FROM UP THERE WHICH WAS KINDA A MOTIVATION.

 PLAYED WITH THE PUP BY THROWING A BALL. SHE IS GETTING REALLY GOOD AT RETURNING THE BALL RIGHT TO YOU. SHE IS NOT SO GOOD SNAP BITING AT YOU WHILE YOU TRY TO PICK UP THE BALL. I TELL HER , " ARE YOU AN ASSHOLE ? LET ME PICK UP THE DAMN BALL. MAN , YOU'RE SUCH AN ASSHOLE. "

 FRESH PRINCE OF BEL AIR COMING OUT WITH A REUNION SHOW AROUND THANKSGIVING TIME. I AM NOT SURE IF IT IS JUST THEM TALKING ABOUT THEIR 30 YEAR ANNIVERSARY OR ACTUALLY PERFORMING ON STAGE. ANYWAY , I WATCHED THE TRAILER.  AS SOON AS THEY MENTIONED THE DECEASED ACTOR JAMES AVERY WHO PLAYED THEIR DAD / UNCLE PHILIP BANKS..........I CRIED.

 LET THE PUP LICK THE REMAINING REMNANTS OF A PEANUT BUTTER JAR. SHE CAN NOT GET TO THE BOTTOM SO I CUT THE PLASTIC JAR IN HALF. IT IS PRETTY ENTERTAINING AS I  HOLD AND SPIN THE JAR AS SHE GOES TO TOWN LICKING THE REMAINING TABLE SPOON OF PEANUT BUTTER.

 OFF TO THE NAIL WHERE IT IS LIKE DEATH. TWO STRAIGHT NIGHTS OF NO ONE COMING IN. I WATCHED PORN AND RIDICULOUSNESS. ONE EPISODE HAD A POPULAR GUEST..... ROB GRONKOWSKI. THE GUY IS HUGE AND HAS HANDS LIKE A GRIZZLY. HE IS ALSO A COMPLETE IDIOT. 

 BACK HOME I SETTLE IN AND WALK THE PUP. SHE ALWAYS GREETS ME WITH TOTAL LOVE. IT'S NICE TO HAVE.

 WHEELS AND I DON'T TOUCH ANYMORE FOR OBVIOUS REASONS...............I'M FAT AND HIDEOUS. BUT TODAY WE HUGGED. WE BOTH NEEDED IT.

 SETTLE IN AND WATCH THE FINALE OF AWAY. IT WAS EXCELLENT. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.

 OFF TO BED LAST AND I LEAVE THE PUP ON THE COUCH. EARLIER , SHE THREW UP A MOUND OF PLAY-DOH LIKE MIXTURE. THAT WAS FUN CLEANING UP. ANYWAY , I LEFT HER ON THE COUCH SLEEPING.

 I GO TO BED.........11 SECONDS LATER THE PUP JUMPS ON MY BED AND JOINS ME. WE SNUGGLED ALL NIGHT. SHE ALSO STUCK HER POINTY PAWS AND NAILS RIGHT UP AND IN MY ASS. I WAS OKAY WITH IT.

   SATURDAY      11 - 14 - 20

  IT'S WHEELSTOCK WEATHER.

  I SPRAY FLEX SEAL ON THE SUNROOF OF OUR JEEP TO STOP A LEAK. WHAT THE HELL. I GOT NO OTHER IDEAS.

  THE LOAD UP BEGINS. DID I EVER TELL YOU I HATE LOADING AND UNLOADING VEHICLES ?

  HEADING NORTH WE SEE A TOTALLY DECKED OUT TRUMP SUPER BUS. TRUMP'S PICTURE IS ON THE BACK OF THE BUS....SHIRTLESS. HIS ABS WERE LIKE ARNOLD'S IN 1970'S. IS THIS A FAKE PICTURE ?

  WE GET ON THE ROAD AND I FORGET MY CELL PHONE. ANNNNNNNND TURN AROUND.

 BACK ON THE ROAD WE PASS THE TRUMP SUPER BUS. BIG RALLY FOR TRUMP IN PHILLY TODAY WITH SOME VIOLENCE BREAKING OUT. AMAZING HOW TRUMP INSTILLED TO HALF OUR COUNTRY THAT EVERYTHING IS FAKE OR FRAUDULENT.......UNLESS HE WINS OF COURSE.

 WE MAKE GREAT TIME AND STOP AT OUR FAVORITE PIZZA SHOP.....JIREH'S. I AM TELLING YOU BEST PIZZA EVER. THOUGH IT IS TOO RICH FOR WHEEL'S , I (AGAIN ) ORDERED THE CHICKEN BROCCOLI ALFREDO PIZZA ( JESUS H ) AND SHE ORDERED A CHEESESTEAK STROMBOLI WITH ONIONS AND PEPPERS. WE WILL GET 4 MEALS OUT OF THIS.

  ABOUT 2 1/2 MONTHS SINCE WE BEEN HERE LAST. THE PUNCH LIST WILL BE LONG.

  WE SETTLE IN , HAVE SOME LUNCH , AND TAKE A WALK AROUND THE LAKE WITH THE PUP. WE SEE DEER AND IT IS BEAUTIFUL HERE.

 WHEELS WORKS AND I KEEP ADDING TO MY PUNCH LIST AND THINK , " MAN , RENTERS JUST DON'T GIVE A SHIT. "

 RENTER WHO CANCELLED FOR THANKSGIVING.........I FILLED THE DATES IN LESS THAN 12 HOURS.

 SPEAKING OF THANKSGIVING WE DECIDED NOT TO HAVE ANY FAMILY OVER OR VISIT ANYONE AT THIS COVID SKY ROCKETING INCREDIBLE NUMBERS......IF YOU BELIEVE THE NEWS AND DOCTORS. WE WILL " ZOOM " ON WHEELS' SIDE.

  FOR DINNER WE GO TO ARE GO-TO PLACE.....CHARLIE WEAVERS RESTAURANT. THEY HAVE EXCELLENT COVID-19 PROTOCOL ALONG WITH GREAT FOOD AND PRICING. IT IS ALSO BYOB AND WE KNOW THE WAITRESS " MIKE ". WE HAD EXCELLENT FOOD SERVED VERY QUICKLY. PUT IT THIS WAY , WE ARRIVED LAST AND LEFT FIRST IN A ROOM OF 2 OTHER TABLES OCCUPIED. " MIKE " SERVED OUR BILL TO ANOTHER TABLE AND BROUGHT OUR DESERT TO ANOTHER TABLE. SHE QUICKLY RESOLVED THE PROBLEM SO I SAID TO THE NICE COUPLE AT THE OTHER TABLE , " WHY DON'T YOU SIT WITH US TO MAKE IT EASIER ON MIKE ? " THEY LAUGHED.

 AGAIN , THE FOOD WAS SO GOOD WE MAY RETURN TOMORROW. WE HAD PRIME RIB , PORK TENDERLOIN , MASHED POTATOES WITH GRAVY , BRUSSELS SPROUTS ( NOT A FAN BUT THESE ARE VERY GOOD ) , CORN BREAD (AGAIN NOT A FAN BUT EXCELLENT ) , RICE PILAF , DINNER ROLLS , PEANUT BUTTER PIE ( OMG ) , AND RED WINE ( SHOULD OF BROUGHT MORE ). I POSTED PICTURES AND A REVIEW ON THEIR WEBSITE.

 I AM REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO THE EAGLES GAME. I FEEL DECENT ABOUT IT AND REALLY HOPE CARSON WENTZ MAKES GOOD DECISIONS TO QUELL THE DAMN SOCIAL MEDIA HATERS.

 WE WATCH A MOVIE CALLED HUBIE HALLOWEEN WITH ADAM SANDLER AND HIS NORMAL ACTOR FRIENDS. OVERALL , IT WAS NOT GOOD. SOME SCENES LIKE KIDS THROWING STUFF AT HIM WHILE HE'S RIDING HIS BIKE WAS FUNNY. STILL WAITING FOR ADAM TO CALL ME.

 OFF TO BED AND MAKE MY BED. WE BRING ALL BEDDING HERE SO IT TAKES ABOUT 10 MINUTES TO SET-UP. I DON'T MIND SETTLING MY BEDROOM. I TURN ON THE TV AND THERE IS NO SOUND. I TRY TO TROUBLE SHOOT FOR 45 MINUTES. WELP , ADD IT TO THE LIST.

  SUNDAY      11 - 15 - 20

 AND THE RAINS CAME.......OH MAN DID THEY COME.

 I MADE AN VERY GOOD DECISION. I HAD 2 CHOICES THIS MORNING. 1 - LEAF BLOW ALL ROOFS ( ROOVES ? ) AT 56 DEGREES WITH A 100% RAIN STORM COMING OR DO IT TOMORROW IN 44 DEGREE WEATHER AND SUNNY BUT WET AND POSSIBLE ICY ON THE SHINGLES. I DECIDE TODAY WITH THE 10 DEGREES WARMER. NOW , I JUST HAD TO BEAT THE RAIN.

 PROJECTS :

 - ACCESS CRAWL SPACE BY REMOVING 2 WOOD DOORS AND DRAGGING OUT MY GORILLA LADDER ( SO NICE HAVING LADDERS ON-SITE NOW )

 - LEAF BLOW UPPER ROOF WHICH IS NOT TOO BAD. I DO THE ENTIRE ROOF.

 - SET-UP FOR AWNING ROOF WHICH IS BAD. LEAF BLOW THE ENTIRE ROOF.

 - RAKE TONS OF LEAVES AWAY FROM THE HOUSE. A LOCAL ONCE TOLD ME TO KEEP EXCESSIVE LEAVES AWAY FROM THE BASE OF YOUR HOME.....ATTRACTS LESS ANTS.

 - BRING LADDER INSIDE AND CHANGE A FLOOD LIGHT ON THE 17' HIGH CEILING.

 - LEAF BLOW BALCONY DECK.

 - PUT EVERYTHING AWAY.

 - LEAF BLOW ABOUT 80% OF THE LOWER DECK.

 TAKE BREAK TO WATCH THE EAGLES AND LISTEN TO MERRILL AND MIKE STREAMING ON MY COMPUTER. I FELT DECENT GOING INTO THIS GAME BUT QUICKLY REALIZED THE DEFENSE WAS BAD AND THE OFFENSIVE PLAY CALLING WAS HORRIBLE ON MORE THAN HALF THE CALLS.  ANOTHER BRUTAL LOSS AND THE EAGLES ARE A PRETTY BAD TEAM. ANOTHER WEEK OF WENTZ GETTING RIPPED FOR SUCKING. I ACTUALLY THOUGHT HE PLAYED OKAY. HE WAS CONSTANTLY UNDER PRESSURE AND COACH PEDERSON GOT AWAY FOR THE RUN AGAIN AND MADE MANY VANILLA GENERIC PLAY CALLS. HE DID HAVE SOME CREATIVE CALLS BUT GOT AWAY FROM THEM....AGAIN.

 HAVE DINNER OF LEFTOVERS. IT WAS CHICKEN BROCCOLI ALFREDO PIZZA ( OMG ) AND CHEESE STEAK STROMBOLI.

 - FINISH LEAF BLOWING LOWER DECK.

 VIA STREAMING ON MY COMPUTER WE WATCH THE NASA LIFTOFF OF VIKING SPACE SHIP TO MEET UP AT THE SPACE STATION. THEY HAD EXCELLENT CAMERA ANGLES OF THE SHIP , LIFTOFF , AND THE ASTRONAUTS. IT WAS VERY COOL.

 - LOOKS LIKE WE HAVE A CRITTER PROBLEM. I KNOW THESE CRITTERS START LOOKING FOR WARMER HOMES. WE CLEAN OUT ALL DRAWERS AND SET TRAPS. I ALSO SET TRAPS IN OUR ATTIC CRAWL SPACE. WE WILL SEE TOMORROW. I CALL THE TRAPS THE GAUNTLET LIKE THE CLINT EASTWOOD MOVIE.

 - FIX ALL FLASHLIGHTS. I BROUGHT UP AND CHARGED SOME BATTERIES FOR THE FLASHLIGHTS.

 I THOUGHT I SIGNED-OUT ON A RENTER'S ROKU LAST TIME I HERE.......APPARENTLY I DIDN'T. THIS BROUGHT AN IDEA. WE HAVE BEEN WANTING TO WATCH YELLOWSTONE WITH KEVIN COSTNER. THE REVIEWS ARE EXCELLENT. THE STREAMING CHANNEL PEACOCK IS OFFERING A 7 DAY FREE TRIAL. SO I THOUGHT I COULD USE THEIR ROKU FOR 7 DAYS AND THAN OURS FOR 7 DAYS TO GET CAUGHT UP OVER 2 SEASONS...........SO WE DID.

 WATCH SOME EAGLES POST GAME. RAY DIDINGER AND SETH JOYNER ARE SPOT ON ANALYZING.

 GET THE PUP TO RUN OFF-LEASH BIG TIME. WE CHASE HER AROUND OUTSIDE AND SHE WAS FLYING. UNFORTUNATELY , I THINK SHE PULLED A HAMSTRING. SHE WAS LIMPING THE REST OF THE NIGHT AND INTO TOMORROW.

  PRETTY COOL....A DOE WITH IT'S WHITE TAIL UP IN THE AIR COMES FLYING BY OUR HOUSE. SOMETHING SPOOKED IT BIG TIME. ABOUT 2 MINUTES LATER A LARGE BUCK WANDERS PAST US. IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL 8 POINT BUCK. I HAVE NOT SEEN A BUCK IN A LONG TIME. I VIDEOED IT AND POSTED ON SOCIAL MEDIA.

 WE WATCHED 5 EPISODES OF YELLOWSTONE. ALL WERE GOOD TO VERY GOOD. SOMEONE DIES EVERY SHOW AND THIS ONE PIECE OF ASS GIRL GETS NAKED.......EVERY TIME.

 THE RAIN AND WIND CAME BIG TIME. RAIN WAS BEING PUSHED SIDEWAYS. I ALSO NOTICED OUR AWNING HAS LEAKS UNDERNEATH AGAINST THE HOUSE IN AT LEAST 7 DIFFERENT AREAS. I DON'T CARE TOO MUCH SINCE IT IS ALL OUTSIDE. I DID CHECK FOR LEAKS INSIDE AND ALL GOOD.

 OFF TO BED AND I LEAVE THE PUP ON THE COUCH AFTER WALKING HER. THE TEMPS HAVE DROPPED BUT STILL IT IS NICE TO BE HERE.

 UPSTAIRS AND OFF TO BED AFTER WATCHING TV WITH NO SOUND. THE PUP JOINS ME LATER.

  I SLEEP PRETTY GOOD AND WAS AWAKENED BY A KINDA THUMPING SOUND. AT FIRST I JUST THOUGHT IT WAS THE WIND BLOWING A BRANCH AROUND HITTING THE HOUSE. THE NEXT MORNING I KNEW WHAT IT WAS.

 A VERY GOOD FEELING IS BEING IN BED WITH A SEXY WARM WOMAN........WHO IS SPOONING YOU FROM BEHIND. YOU FEEL COMFORTED AND SPECIAL. THE WARMTH OF HER BODY AGAINST MINE FELT AWESOME. SHE MOVED HER ONE LEG UP AND OVER MY HIP WHILE WRAPPING ONE OF HER ARMS OVER MY SHOULDER AND AROUND MY NECK. WHAT A GREAT FEELING. I WAS ROCK HARD. THAN THIS BEAUTIFUL BRUNETTE WHISPERS IN MY EAR , " WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO WHEN YOUR MOM ARRIVES IN THE YELLOW TUBE ? "..............dream ends.

  MONDAY       11 - 16 - 20

 ROCK , PAPER , SCISSORS....I CHOSE ROCK AND IT DID NOT FEEL GOOD AT ALL.

 THUMP , THUMP , THUMP .....WHAT THE HELL IS THAT NOISE ? I CAME DOWN STAIRS AND CONTINUE TO HEAR IT. I GO BACK UPSTAIRS AND I FINALLY KNOW WHAT IT IS.  I RE-BAITED 3 LARGE TRAPS IN THE ATTIC. I HAVE DONE THIS SINCE I WIPED OUT THE REMAINING POPULATION OF FLYING SQUIRRELS IN THE PENNSYLVANIA AREA. MAN I FELT BAD. WELL , SINCE I JUST SET THE TRAPS SOMETHING NEW WAS CAUGHT IN IT AND FLOUNDERING AROUND. TOMORROW I WILL SQUEEZE UP THE ATTIC ENTRANCE AND SEE. I ASKED WHEELS TO GO UP SINCE SHE IS HALF MY SIZE TO GET THROUGH THE ATTIC CEILING ACCESS. HER ANSWER WAS A STRONG " NO ".

 BACK DOWNSTAIRS I CHECK MY GAUNTLET OF TRAPS. ONE SNAP TRAP HAD A CRITTER.  LATER WHEELS COMES IN THE KITCHEN AND SAYS THERE ARE SOUNDS COMING FROM ONE KITCHEN DRAWER. I OPEN IT UP AND A MOUSE IS STUCK TO A TRAP. I AM NOT A FAN OF THESE STICKY GLUE TRAPS. I BROUGHT BOTH TRAP AND CRITTER OUTSIDE AND PLACED IT IN THE ASHCAN. I THOUGHT THE THING FREEZING AND STARVING TO DEATH WAS NOT RIGHT. THERE WAS NO WAY OF PULLING IT OFF THE TRAP SO I GRABBED A ROCK.

 PROJECTS TODAY :

 - PUT THE BBQ BACK TOGETHER. THE TANK , GRILLING UTENSILS , A CHAIN THAT HOLDS THE TANK IN PLACE , AND COVER WERE ALL OFF...............RENTERS JUST AMAZE ME.

 - ADJUST THE DRIVEWAY LIGHTS TO DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME. I HAVE A BLACK TRASH BAG THAT COVERS ALL THE OUTLETS AND SURGE PROTECTORS. THE BLACK PLASTIC BAG WAS FILLED WITH TRASH..............RENTERS JUST AMAZE ME.

 - WINDEXED ALL WINDOWS BOTH INSIDE AND OUT. OF COURSE ONE WINDOW HAD A BROKEN " PIN " THAT GIVES IT A TILT-IN FEATURE. I ALSO WINDEXED ANY TV'S AND MIRRORS IN THE HOUSE.

 - WIPED DOWN ALL WINDOW SILLS.

 - WIPED DOWN ALL BASEBOARD HEATERS.

 - TESTED ARCADE MACHINES.

 - CHECKED ALL BEDROOM FURNITURE DRAWERS AND UNDER BEDS.

 - CHECKED 3 VACUUMS. ONE VACUUM BAG WAS ABOUT TO GIVE BIRTH. THE TUBES WERE TOTALLY CLOGGED. I GOT ALL 3 TO WORK PERFECTLY. I HAVE NO IDEA WHY I LIKE FIXING VACUUMS.

  ASTRONAUTS REACH SPACE STATION. THE LIVE STREAM VIDEO OF THEM GREETING THE OTHER ASTRONAUTS THAT WERE ALREADY THERE IS PRETTY COOL.

 THE PUP WILL NOT LET BE GRIND HER NAILS DOWN. THE DEVICE I HAVE IS PRETTY QUIET BUT THE DOG GETS TOO JUMPY.

 BEARS LOSE AGAIN TO VIKINGS UNDER FOLES. THE QB FOLES GETS HURT AGAIN. SEE.....IT HAPPENS TO ALL QB'S.

 LOOKS LIKE ALL STATES ARE STARTING A TOTAL SHUT DOWN FOR THE VIRUS. PHILLY HAS SET DOWN RULES TOO.

 99.5% SURVIVAL RATE IF YOU GET THE CORONA VIRUS. SOME PEOPLE ON SOCIAL MEDIA BELIEVE THIS IS NOT AN EPIDEMIC AND A SET-UP FOR BIDEN TO COME IN AND SAVE THE DAY ON HIS WHITE HORSE. YOU ARE GOING TO BELIEVE WHAT YOU WANT. PEOPLE ARE GETTING SICK AND THE NUMBERS ARE RISING. WHETHER YOU DIE OR NOT SHOULD BE ACCOUNTED BUT IT IS STILL AN EPIDEMIC.

 A VERY COOL DOCTOR OZ ABOUT PEOPLE ALREADY TAKING THE VACCINE. YOU FEEL BAD FOR ONE DAY AND GET A FEVER OF 100 DEGREES IS PAR FOR MOST TAKERS. AFTER THAT , OUR BODY HAS BEEN TAUGHT AND GROWN ANTIBODIES TO FIGHT THE CORONA VIRUS AND MORE VIRUSES IN THE FUTURE. THE VOLUNTEERS TALKED OF THEIR EXPERIENCES AND IT WAS VERY INFORMATIVE......UNLESS IT WAS ALL FAKE.

 WE HAVE LEFTOVERS FOR LUNCH AGAIN. THESE RESTAURANTS JUST KEEP GIVING. AGAIN I HAD THE CHICKEN BROCCOLI ALFREDO PIZZA. IT IS SO DAMN GOOD. UNFORTUNATELY I FEAR I MAY HAVE PUT BACK 15 POUNDS OF THE 30 I LOST.

 OFF TO WALMART TO PICK UP SUPPLIES. ARE MAIN GOAL WAS TO REPLACE 12 PILLOWS.  THE STAINS ARE HIDDEN BY THE PILLOW CASES. I TOOK ONE OFF AND IT WAS LIKE A SCENE FROM THE WATERBOY. OH , MONDAY AT 5:15PM , WALMART WAS PACKED. WE GOT SOME THINGS BUT THEY DID NOT AVE PILLOWS IN STOCK.

 STOP AT DAMON'S GRILL. THEY ARE THE BEST BBQ RESTAURANT IN THE AREA. WE GOT SOME BBQ BABY BACK RIBS , POT ROAST , GRILLED CHICKEN , MAC & CHEESE , MASH POTATOES WITH GRAVY , AND BREAD. I TRIED SOME I.PA. BEERS TOO....GOOSE ISLAND AND SPACE DUST. BOTH WERE VERY GOOD. WE ALSO FELT SAFE WITH OUR OWN BOOTH AND FAR AWAY FROM ANY OTHER PATRONS. FOOD WAS EXCELLENT.

 ROLL HOME AND STOP AT 2 DOLLAR STORES. I FELT BAD BECAUSE A GUY IN LINE JUST HAD ONE THING TO PURCHASE. WE FOUND 6 PILLOWS. I ASKED THE REGISTER GIRL IF THEY HAD ANY MORE SO SHE WAS NICE ENOUGH TO CHECK THE STORAGE AREA IN THE BACK........TWICE.  SHE FOUND 4 MORE PILLOWS SO WE PURCHASED 10.

 BACK HOME WE SETTLE IN WITH THE PUPPY. WE GOT HER A CHEW BONE AND SHE NAILED IT PRETTY QUICKLY.

 WE MAKE DRINKS AND WATCH 3 MORE EPISODES OF YELLOWSTONE. WE FINISHED SEASON 1 AND IT WAS VERY GOOD.

 OFF TO BED AROUND 10:15PM. I FELT FAT FROM THE FOOD , DRINKS , AND SNACKS I HAD TODAY. I SLEPT HORRIBLE TOO. I ALSO NOTICED HALF MY DRIVEWAY LIGHTS WERE OUT. I GUESS I RE-SET THEM WRONG. I ALSO THOUGHT I SAW A LARGE BLACK BEAR AROUND 4AM....BUT IT WAS KINDA FAR AND MY EYES MIGHT HAVE BEEN PLAYING TRICKS ON ME SINCE THERE WAS LIMITED LIGHT.

 I FORGOT TO GO DOWN TO THE LAKE AND WATCH THE SKY FOR METEORITES. IT WAS SUPPOSE TO BE A LARGE DISPLAY TONIGHT.

 TUESDAY      11 - 17 - 20

  I SAY TO WHEELS , " I AM TELLING YOU. I AM OPENING UP A CAN OF WORMS HERE." BOY DID I.........

 SLEPT BAD AGAIN.

  WALK THE PUP EARLY AND CHECK MY CRITTER TRAPS. NO SIGN OF ANY ACTIVITY IS A GOOD THING.

  OKAY......NOW WHAT WAS MAKING THAT THUMPING NOISE IN THE ATTIC ? I REMOVED THE CEILING PANEL AND TRIM ALONG THE SIDES OF THE OPENING ( YES I'M FAT ) AND PEEKED MY HEAD UP INTO THE CAVITY SPACE. MY HEART DROPPED AS I SEE THE ANIMAL WHO WAS SUFFERING AROUND IN OUR ATTIC. IT WAS ANOTHER FLYING SQUIRREL. I REMOVED ITS BODY FROM THE TRAP AND RE-BAITED 2 OF THE 3. OH MAN THIS SUCKS. AS WHEELS SAID , " WE CAN NOT HAVE THEM LIVING IN OUR HOUSE. " THIS STATEMENT IS TRUE BUT IT STILL FEELS BAD TO KILL ANY ANIMAL.

 MY BEDROOM TV. I HAVE NOW SWITCHED THE CABLES LINES , POWER SUPPLY , AND MADE MACGYVER HEAD PHONES TO CHECK THE TV'S AUDIO OUTPUTS. I WENT THROUGH THE MENU 10X. I AM STILL GETTING NO SOUND. IT ABSOLUTELY BLOWS. IT IS TIME TO SEARCH FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE TO REPLACE THE TV.

 THE WORMS HAVE BEEN OPENED. HERE IS THE PROJECT OF REPLACING EVERYTHING ON A TOILET.....BLOW.

 THREE HOURS :

 - REMOVE A BATHROOM DOOR AND PLACE DOWN A TARP.

 - WEARING GLOVES AND USING MY WET/DRY VAC I SUCK OUT ALL THE WATER IN THE TOILET BOWL AND TANK. I SUCK MORE WATER OUT WHEN I TILT IT.

 - THE SHIT , ASS , MOLD , GUNK , CUM , GIT , DIRT , MOSS , AND OTHER DEBRIS BEHIND AND UNDER THE TOILET IS DOWNRIGHT DISGUSTING. I DISINFECT AND CLEAN ALL SIDES OF THE BOWL AND TANK.

 - ON THE WALL THERE IS ALWAYS A SQUARE SPOT BEHIND THE TANK THAT COULD NOT BE REACHED WHEN PAINTING. I LITERALLY SCRAPED OFF MOLD , DISINFECTED IT , CLEANED IT , AND THAN PAINTED IT WITH A PAPER TOWEL. YES.....I COULD NOT FIND A PAINT BRUSH BUT I DID HAVE THE MATCHING COLOR

 - I HAVE THE ENTIRE TOILET CRYSTAL CLEAN AND NOW IT AND THE BATHROOM SMELL OF CLEANING SOLUTIONS.

 - I REMOVE ALL PARTS INSIDE THE TANK AND THE WAX SEAL UNDERNEATH. AGAIN , I CLEAN EVERYTHING INCLUDING THE FLOOR WHICH LOOKED LIKE A WHORE HOUSE FUN ROOM.

 - USING MY REPLACEMENT TOILET KIT I BEGIN TO INSTALL THEM .....NEW FLUID MASTER , PIPE ASSEMBLY , FILL VALVE , TANK WASHER & BOLTS , WAX SEAL , TANK GASKET , FLAPPER , AND CARRIAGE BOLTS.

 - TAKE A RIDE TO HARDWARE STORE BECAUSE I NEEDED EXTRA CARRIAGE AND TANK BOLTS. THE KIT COMES WITH TWO AND OF COURSE I NEEDED 3.

 - CONTINUE TO INSTALL NEW PARTS AND NOTICE THE EASIEST THING IS NOT WORKING.....THE WATER SUPPLY LINE. ALL I NEEDED TO DO IS JUST TURN IT ON....THAT'S IT.  I FUCKING WASTE 30 MINUTES FIGHTING THIS STUPID EASY PART. 

 - TAKE A RIDE TO HARDWARE STORE AGAIN. WHEELS ASKS ME TO STOP AT THE LIQUOR STORE.

 - AT LIQUOR STORE I PICK APRICOT BRANDY AND A BOTTLE OF JAMESON ON SALE WITH AN EAGLES GIFT GLASS. I THROW THE EAGLES GLASS IN THE TRASH BECAUSE THEY BLOW.

 - BACK HOME I INSTALL THE NEW WATER SUPPLY LINE. I WANTED A PLASTIC CONNECTOR BUT THEY ONLY HAD METAL. THIS MEANS I NEED TO SECURE A METAL COUPLING TO A PLASTIC FLUID MASTER. TO MY SURPRISE IT WORKS....FOR NOW.

 THE SUPER CLEANED TOILET IS SET AND I AM RELIEVED. IT NEEDED TO BE DONE BECAUSE EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE A PUDDLE OF WATER WAS SEEN IN FRONT OF THE TOILET. THIS WAS BECAUSE A CARRIAGE BOLT WAS STRIPPED AND COULD NOT SECURE THE BOWL TO THE TILE FLOOR. OF COURSE A SIMPLE TIGHTENING OF A BOLT COULD NOT BE DONE WHICH CREATED THIS " CAN OF WORMS " 3 HOUR PROJECT FROM START TO FINISH.

 I WAS STRESSED ALL DAY SO I HAD NO BREAKFAST OR LUNCH. I SUBSTITUTED THE MEALS WITH COOKIES AND WATER. I BOUGHT 2 BOXES OF COOKIES AT THE DOLLAR STORE FOR A TOTAL OF 2 BUCKS. THEY WERE GOOD EXCEPT ONE BOX HAD ONLY 12 COOKIES......BLOW.

 BROUGHT A BACK-UP KEYBOARD BECAUSE MY LAPTOP SOMETIMES HAS CERTAIN LETTERS THAT DON'T WORK. IT IS STRANGE BECAUSE TWICE NOW IT IS THE SAME 4 LETTERS ON THE LAPTOP'S KEYBOARD THAT DO NOT WORK. THE LETTERS THAT DON'T WORK ARE  B , L , O , AND W.

 I SEARCH THE INTERNET AND FIND 3 PEOPLE SELLING TV'S. THE BEST ONE RESPONDS TO ME. THEY ARE SELLING A 42" TV WITH A WALL MOUNT BRACKET AND STILL HAVE THE ORIGINAL REMOTE. THEY ASK FOR $40. WE AGREE ON $25. THIS IS A GOOD TRADE. THEY LIVE IN MOUNTAIN TOP AREA WHICH IS 18 MINUTES AWAY.

 TALKED TO A REALTOR FRIEND. LOOKS LIKE WE ARE STARTING THE MOTIONS TO SELL THE NAIL. IT SICKENS ME TO THE CORE TO EVEN SELL IT LET ALONE LOSE MONEY FROM 23 YEARS OF OWNING IT. ANY FUCKING NORMAL PROPERTY AFTER 23 YEARS YOU THINK THE VALUE WOULD DOUBLE.  COVID-19 FUCKED ME RIGHT IN THE ASS.

 WHEELS MAKES ROASTED PORK WITH SOME FIXIN'S. I SUGGEST SINCE WE HAVE TO GO GET THE TV TO WRAP AND STORE THE FOOD SHE JUST MADE AND GO OUT TO DINNER. THE FOOD WAS WRAPPED IN UNDER 11 SECONDS. IN FACT , I THINK SOME FOOD WASN'T EVEN WRAPPED BUT JUST THROWN IN THE FRIDGE.

 THE WOMAN I AM MESSAGING VIA FACEBOOK MARKETPLACE IS SELLING THE TV FOR HER SON. SHE ACTUALLY LIVES IN GEORGIA WHERE THE SON IS MOVING TO. SHE SAYS SHE WILL MESSAGE ME AS SOON AS HE GETS HOME. WE DECIDE TO PICK THE NUMBER #1 RESTAURANT VIA YELP IN THE MOUNTAIN TOP AREA WHICH WAS CALLED ADELINA'S RESTAURANT & PIZZARIA. THEY PRACTICED EXCELLENT COVID PROTOCOL WITH MASK WEARING AND X'ING OFF TABLES CLOSE TO EACH OTHER. THE PLACE IS BEAUTIFUL AND HAS OUTDOOR DINING WITH 2 INDOOR ROOMS AND A BAR. I TEXT THE WOMAN WE ARE HERE AND SHE SAYS HER SON'S HOME IS JUST A COUPLE MILES AWAY. THIS IS GOOD.

 WE ORDER AND ENJOY SCALLOPS WRAPPED IN BACON , THE SOUP DU JOUR ( CHICKEN ) , AN ANTIPASTO , AND MANNIGUTS ( AS THE ITALIANS SAYS IT ). I ORDER A GOOSE ISLAND DRAFT. WHEELS GETS HER STANDARD COORS LIGHT BOTTLE. OUR WAITRESS " HEATHER " WAS COOL , THE FOOD PORTIONS WERE GOOD AND THE PRICING IS $$. WE ENJOYED IT AND WILL RETURN ANOTHER DAY. IT WAS A GOOD CALL. WE ALSO BOUGHT A SMALL PAN DISH PIZZA TO BRING HOME BECAUSE THIS PLACE IS ALSO KNOWN FOR ITS EXCELLENT PIZZA.

 THE WOMAN TEXTS ME , " HER SON IS HOME. " IT WAS PERFECT TIMING. WE FINISHED OUR BEERS AND GOT THE PIZZA TO GO. I MESSAGE THE WOMEN WE WILL BE THERE IN 5 MINUTES. WE ARRIVE IN 5 MINUTES AN NO ONE IS HOME. I KNOCK ON A CONNECTING DOOR AND SOME GIRLS ANSWER OUT A 2ND FLOOR WINDOW. THEY HAVE NO IDEA OF THE PERSON NEXT TO THEM. WE TEXT THE WOMAN BACK SAYING NO ONE IS HOME. SHE REPLIES , " I AM SORRY SORRY. HE WENT TO TURKEY HILL AND WILL BE BACK IN UNDER 5 MINUTES. " ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME ? THE LADY MESSAGED ME EARLIER , " HE KNOWS YOUR ARRIVING AND WILL BE WAITING."  YEAH......RIGHT.

 WE WAIT 7 MINUTES IN A DARK OFF ROAD BY RAILROAD TRACKS. WE DECIDE TO GIVE IT 2 MORE MINUTES. I DON'T EVEN KNOW THE SON'S NAME. I MOVE MY VAN OUT OF THEIR DRIVEWAY AND HE PULLS UP WITH SOME FRIENDS AND GETS DROPPED OFF. HE IS COOL AND LOADS THE TV INTO OUR VAN THAT I BACKED UP TO HIS DOOR. WE GET THE FUCK OUTTA THERE.

 ON THE RIDE HOME I TALK TO A COUSIN VIA OUR VAN'S SPEAKER PHONE. THE FIRST THING I SAY BEFORE HE TALKS IS , " WHEELS IS IN THE VAN SO OUR DISCUSSION MUST BE PG-13. " I HAD HIM ROARING LAUGHING WHEN I INSTANTLY TALKED HARD CORE HULK HOGAN RATED X STYLE FOR 20 MINUTES.

 I ALSO TALKED TO 3 BROTHERS TODAY. ALL OF THEM ARE DOING GOOD.......EXCEPT ME......BLOW.

 BACK HOME WE FEED AND PLAY WITH THE PUP.

 I DECIDE TO INSTALL THE " NEW " TV BECAUSE I REALLY LIKE WATCHING TV BEFORE I GO TO BED. I USE THE OLD WALL BRACKET AND INSTALL IT ON THE NEW TV. IT IS DONE IN SECONDS. I HANG THE TV , TURN IT ON , ANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNND........NO SOUND. I JUST BOUGHT A TV , WASTED FUCKING TIME , WAITED FOR A TURKEY HILL BOY AND ALL FOR SHIT. ALL MY TROUBLE SHOOTING AND NOW THIS......BLOW.

 WE SETTLE IN WITH DRINKS AND WATCH 3 EPISODES OF YELLOWSTONE. THEY ARE ALL GOOD. I FALL ASLEEP AND RE-WATCH 20 MINUTES AFTER WHEELS GOES TO BED.

 OFF TO BED AFTER MIDNIGHT AND I TOSS AND TURN. I KEEP THINKING OF THIS STUPID TV PROBLEM. AT 4 FUCKING IN THE MORNING I DECIDE TO TRY ONE MORE THING....CHANGE THE FUCKING CABLE BOXES. AT 4AM , I GO TO THE GAME ROOM AND TAKE THE CABLE BOX. I USE IT TO REPLACE MY BEDROOM CABLE BOX. I CONNECT THE TV AND THE SOUNDS GOES RIGHT THE FUCK ON. JESUS , THE WHOLE TIME IT WAS A BAD CABLE BOX.

 I CAN NOT START MY DAY AT 4:30AM. I GO BACK TO SLEEP. I FALL ASLEEP A LITTLE BIT AND FINALLY GET UP AT 7:15AM. FOR COMFORT I CUPPED THE PUP'S HEAD WITH MY HAND. SHE FELT LOVED AND I FELT LOVED.

 I WALK THE PUP OFF LEASH. SHE DOES HER THING AND I FEED HER.  NOW I CAN START ANOTHER CRAPPY DAY. OH , THE DRIVE WAY LIGHTS ARE NOT WORKING AGAIN. THIS IS NOW TWICE OF ME TRYING TO FIX THEM. I SHOULD OF NEVER TOUCHED THE LIGHTS. THEY WERE WORKING PERFECTLY BUT JUST HAD A ONE HOUR DIFFERENCE FROM DAYLIGHT SAVINGS. I WILL TRY AGAIN TODAY.....WHICH IS TOMORROW. BLOW.

   WEDNESDAY      11 - 18 - 20

 " WOULD YOU LIKE SOME COFFEE OR HOT CHOCOLATE ? "....WHEELS ONE WORD SARCASTIC RESPONSE , " WOW ".

   GOT TO ADMIT....IT'S FRIGGIN' BEAUTIFUL HERE WHEN I AM NOT KILLING FLYING SQUIRRELS.

  WHEELS PUTTING IN 10 HOUR DAYS. I SET HER UP A LAND LINE PHONE BECAUSE HER MEETINGS LAST SO LONG MAKING THE CORDLESS PHONE LOSE ITS' BATTERY CHARGE.

 HAD THE PIZZA FOR LUNCH WE GOT FROM ADELINA'S RESTAURANT. THE SAUSAGE AND ONION WAS VERY GOOD.

  SOME MORE PROJECTS :

 - TRIPLE CHECKING INSTALLATION OF TOILET PARTS I DID YESTERDAY. SO FAR SO GOOD AND THE BATHROOM NOW SMELLS LIKE IT SHOULD.......CLEAN.

 - MESSED WITH THE DRIVEWAY LIGHTS FOR THE 2ND STRAIGHT DAY. THIS TIME ALL LIGHTS WERE WORKING WHEN IT GOT DARK SO GOING " ON " IS RIGHT. I AM NOT SURE ABOUT WHEN THEY TURNED " OFF ".

 - CHECKED ALL TRAPS. THERE HAS BEEN ZERO ACTIVITY FOR 3 STRAIGHT DAYS NOW. THIS IS A GOOD THING.

 - CHECKED ALL LIGHTS AND REPLACED ANY BULBS NEEDED.

 - APPARENTLY IT WAS NOT A BAD CABLE BOX FOR MY TV WITH NO SOUND. THIS IS SCENARIO NUMBER 10. I FLIP FLOPPED CABLES BOXES AND BOTH NOW WORK WITH TV'S HAVING SOUND. I DID NOTICE A CABLE WIRE SCREWING INTO THE CABLE BOX SLIPPED RIGHT OUT LEAVING THE FERRULE ( THE METAL TUBE AT THE END OF A COAXIAL TV CABLE ) STILL ATTACHED TO THE CABLE BOX. I TIGHTENED IT AND THE TV WORKS WITH SOUND.

 - SO NOW WE HAVE A NICE FLAT SCREEN TV WITH HDMI PORTS AND REMOTE. WE DECIDE TO GET RID OF AN OLDER BOX TV IN AN UPSTAIRS BEDROOM. I GET A RADIO AND PLAY SOME MUSIC WHILE I REMOVE THE TV AND IT'S WALL MOUNT. I INSTALL THE " NEW " SWING WALL MOUNT , TV , AND TRIM TO HIDE WIRES GOING UP THE WALL.  IT LOOKS 10X BETTER.

 - APPARENTLY FLEX SEAL WORKED ON OUR JEEP'S SUNROOF. OUR ELDEST SAID DURING THE BIG RAIN NO WATER CAME IN. SHE DID SAY SOME WATER BEHIND THE BAR IN THE BASEMENT DID GET WET. HEY , I CAN'T HAVE ALL GOOD NEWS EACH DAY.

 - TAKE A WALK TO THE ENTRANCE WHERE THE COMMUNITY MAILBOX IS. IT IS A LITTLE BRISK BUT STILL BEAUTIFUL. WE TOOK THE PUP AND I ALSO BROUGHT A PLASTIC BAG TO PICK UP TRASH. WE SAW 11 DOE AND ONE 6 POINT BUCK FOLLOWING THEM. THAT IS PRETTY COOL.

 - SPRAY PAINTED HORSESHOE PIT POLES BRIGHT WHITE.

 - KILLED A SPIDER WALKING ALONG A BASEBOARD HEATER. I WONDERED , " CAN THEY FEEL THAT HOT SURFACE ? " AGAIN , FELT BAD DISPOSING OF THIS CREATURE BECAUSE THEY DO HELP WITH OTHER UNWANTED BUGS.

 - SEVERAL FINCHES FLY UNDER OUR AWNING TO EAT MOTHS ATTACHED TO THE SIDING. I THANKED THEM.

 - STRAIGHTENED MUDROOM AND MY 1000 TOOLS ALL OVER THE PLACE. AGAIN , I GOT A RADIO AND PLAYED MUSIC WHILE WORKING IN THERE. MUSIC HELPS BIG TIME WHEN DOING PROJECTS.

 - CLEANED OLD TOILET FLUID MASTER THAT I MAY USE TO REPLACE ANOTHER OLD FLUID MASTER. YES.....THIS MAKES NO SENSE.

  WHEELS ENDS HER NIGHT DAMN NEAR 6PM. SHE SAYS , " SO , WANNA GO TO CHARLIE WEAVERS RESTAURANT ? " WE LEFT SO FAST WE FORGOT TO BRING BEER. WE STOP AT A LIQUOR STORE JUST AS IT WAS CLOSING. WE PICK UP A BOX OF MALBEC RED WINE.

 ARRIVE AT CHARLIE WEAVERS AND ONE ROOM IS PRETTY FULL. I WAS NERVOUS ABOUT IT BUT WORKED IT OUT PERFECT AS " MIKE " THE WAITRESS SAT US IN A 2ND ROOM BY OURSELVES. SHE NOW KNOWS US AND WE FOUND OUT SHE IS NOT ONLY A WAITRESS BUT THE OWNER....WITH HER HUSBAND THE CHEF. FOOD WAS VERY GOOD AGAIN AS WE ORDERED CHICKEN PARM OVER PASTA , FRIED CHICKEN , MASHED POTATOES WITH GRAVY , CORN , MUSSELS IN A RED SAUCE , BREAD , AND A PEANUT BUTTER ICE CREAM CHOCOLATE SYRUP WHIPPED CREAM DESERT ( OH.....MY.....GOD. )   WE ARE LOOKING AT THIS STAY IN THE POCONOS AS A VACATION SO GETTING FAT IS ACCEPTABLE. " MIKE " TALKED TO US ALOT. SHE THINKS THEY MAY CLOSE WITH THE 2ND ROUND OF THE PANDEMIC RESTRICTIONS COMING.

 ON THE DRIVE HOME I ASK WHEELS , " DO WE HAVE COFFEE ? " SHE SAYS , " YES , WHY YOU WANT SOME ? " I REPLY , " MY ANSWER WILL BE IN 3 MINUTES. WE DRIVE UP TO THE ENTRANCE AND THERE IS AN OLD LADY MANNING THE GATE AND CHECKING EACH CAR THAT COMES THROUGH. THE BACK STORY IS SHE IS A NASTY MEAN PERSON AND HAS GOTTEN WAY TOO INTO SUPERVISING THIS ENTRANCE. SHE HAS CAUSED 10 CAR BACK UPS FOR PEOPLE SIMPLY TO DRIVE THROUGH. ALL OUT FIGHTS HAVE BROKEN OUT THIS WOMAN. OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY WEBSITE IS A POPCORN SHOW. ANYWAY ,THIS IS THE 3RD TIME WE SAW HER MANNING THE GATE AND I AM ALWAYS OVER THE TOP SUPER NICE TO THIS ANGRY TROLL OF A LADY. WE PULL UP AND SHE SAYS , " WHAT YOU WHAT ? " I SAY OUR ADDRESS AND " I JUST LIKE TO SAY THANK YOU FOR MANNING THE GATE. WOULD YOU LIKE US TO BRING YOU SOME COFFEE OR HOT CHOCOLATE ? " SHE REPLIES , " NO ". WHEELS SAYS , " WOW " I SAY , " HEY WHY NOT TRY TO MAKE AN ANGRY PERSON FEEL GOOD. GLAD SHE SAID " NO " BECAUSE I WAS NOT BRINGING BACK ANY COFFEE OR HOT CHOCOLATE. " WHEELS RESPONDS , " WOW , YOU ARE AN ASSHOLE. "

 BACK HOME WE ARE GREETED WARMLY AND EXCITEDLY BY THE PUP. IT IS A SMALL JOY EACH TIME. I NEED IT THE MOST. WHEELS SAYS MAZE HAS BEAUTIFUL EYE LASHES.

 CLEANER STOPS OVER SO WE CAN PAY HER.

 WE WATCH 3 EPISODES OF YELLOWSTONE. I THOUGHT 2 1/2 WERE VERY GOOD CONSIDERING I FELL ASLEEP ON THE LAST HALF OF ONE EPISODE. I AM HOPING BOTH WHEELS AND I SLEEP BETTER TONIGHT.

 WE ALSO WATCHED A LITTLE BIT OF GREASE WITH JOHN TRAVOLTA AND OLIVIA NEWTOWN JOHN ( PIECE OF ASS ). DID YOU KNOW MOST OF THE CAST WERE IN THEIR LATE 20'S AND EARLY 30'S PLAYING HIGH SCHOOL KIDS ? JESUS , RIZZO WAS 33 !! THE MOVIE WAS RELEASED IN 1978. THAT'S 42 YEARS AGO. I STILL BANG OLIVIA NEWTOWN JOHN TODAY.

 WE HEAD TO BED. I ASK WHEELS IF SHE WANTS SOME COCK FOR 30 SECONDS ? A VERY TIRED " NO " WAS IMMEDIATELY ANSWERED. TOTALLY CAN'T BLAME HER.

 FROM THE WICKED STORM WE HAD 2 PLACES OF OUR HOUSE THAT WERE SEVERALLY DAMAGED BY 2 VERY LARGE TREE BRANCHES. TWO CORNERS OF OUR HOUSE HAD TOTAL STRUCTURAL DAMAGE AND BROKE OFF. I COULD SEE INSULATION AND SPLINTERED WOOD ALONG THE TOP EDGES. THE INSIDE OF THE HOUSE IS NOW EXPOSED TO THE OUTSIDE..........dream ends.

 THURSDAY       11 - 19 - 20

  IT'S VERY RARE THAT MOST OF MY DAY I GET REALLY GOOD THINGS HAPPEN TO ME.

 START MORNING SEEING 2 DOE OUT THE FRONT WINDOW AND 2 BUCKS OUT THE BACK WINDOW. THIS WAS PRETTY COOL. THE BUCKS WERE A 2 POINT ( BUTTON BUCK ) AND A 4 POINT. I ALSO SAW A RED TAIL HAWK LAND ON A BRANCH ABOUT 100 FEET FROM THE HOUSE. HAWKS ARE BAD ASS.

 A NEIGHBOR POSTS A VIDEO OF 4 BEAR WALKING DOWN HER DRIVEWAY. MOMMA BEAR WAS BIG.

 THE TRUMPSTERS ARE STILL MAKING A RACKET THAT EVERYTHING IS FAKE. ALL THESE CONTROVERSIAL STATES ARE CHEATING AND YET ZERO PROOF. IT'S LIKE THE MOVIE PET DETECTIVE WITH JIM CAREY WHERE LOIS EINHORN SAYS  , " THERE'S A LITTLE THING YOU NEED CALLED EVIDENCE " .

   GIULIANI'S HAIR DYE RUNNING DOWN THE SIDE OF HIS FACE WAS PERFECT.......FAKE HAIR. KINDA TELLS YOU SOMETHING......KARMA MAYBE ?

 MORE PUNCH LIST STUFF :

 - RE-WINDEXED ONE WINDOW. IN THE SUN IT LOOKED LIKE A STREAKY ASS. I GUESS THE FIRST TIME I DID NOT ROTATE THE PAPER TOWELS ENOUGH. THEY WERE JUST TOO DIRTY.

 -  1/3 THE DRIVEWAY LIGHTS WENT OFF AROUND 5AM. I'M OKAY WITH THAT. I USED A BUNGEE CORD TO WRAP THE BLACK PLASTIC BAG THAT COVERS THE POWER STRIPS AND EXTENSION CORDS. MAYBE THIS WILL HELP PREVENT RENTERS FROM THROWING TRASH IN IT.

 - I HAD SOMETHING THAT WAS BOTHERING ME JUST A LITTLE BIT. SOME OF OUR DOORS ARE NOT CLOSING PROPERLY. THE CHANGE OF SEASONS AND TEMPERATURES CREATES EXPANDING AND CONTRACTING OF THE WOOD JAMBS. SO , I TESTED EVERY BEDROOM , INTERIOR , AND CLOSET DOOR. ANY DOORS THAT DID NOT CLOSE PROPERLY I TOOK THEM OFF THEIR HINGES , BROUGHT IT OUTSIDE , AND SHAVED A 1/4" OFF THE DOOR WITH MY CIRCULAR SAW. ALL DOORS OPEN AND CLOSE PROPERLY NOW.

 - CLEANED OUT WOOD STOVE. THIS IS NEVER A FUN JOB. IT ALWAYS AMAZES ME ON THE 1 INTERIOR PIECE I REMOVE AND......I CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW IT FITS BACK IN 5 MINUTES LATER. IT DOES THIS TO ME EVERY TIME. I ALSO CLEANED THE STOVE'S GLASS WITH OVEN CLEANER. OVEN CLEANER WORKS EXCELLENT ON BURNT GLASS.

 - PEOPLE JUST DON'T LOOK UP. I DID TODAY AND NOTICED A LARGE TREE BRANCH LEANING ON OUR MAIN POWER LINE ATTACHED TO OUR HOUSE. PPL WAS JUST HERE 3 DAYS AGO CUTTING BRANCHES OFF WIRES DUE TO THE WICKED STORM A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO. I FELT THIS IS SOMETHING I COULD HANDLE......THOUGH I WAS PRETTY NERVOUS. THE BRANCH WAS 5 INCHES THICK AND ABOUT 60 FEET LONG.  I RAN AN EXTENSION CORD TO THE BRANCH AND MOVED A VEHICLE. I FIRST TRIED TO CUT THE BRANCH ON THE TOP BUT QUICKLY REALIZED THE WEIGHT OF THE BRANCH IS BINDING MY SAW BLADE. I FLIPPED MY CIRCULAR SAW UPSIDE DOWN ( NOT REAL SMART ) AND CUT UNDERNEATH THE BRANCH. IN MY MIND I YELL , " TIMMMMMMMM....BERRRRRRR ". I SEE THE LARGE HEAVY BRANCH SLIDE ALONG AND OFF THE TOP OF THE POWER LINE AND THAN SLAM AGAINST THE GROUND. IT MADE SUCH AN IMPACT AGAINST THE HOUSE A BEDROOM WALL WHERE OUR ELDEST WAS IN SHOOK. SHE OPENED THE WINDOW AND SAID , " WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING NOW ? "

 - I WAS VERY NERVOUS THE HOUSE BRACKET HOLDING THE STREETNPOWER LINE WAS DAMAGED BUT IT DID SEEM OKAY. I MADE SOME MORE CUTS OF THE BRANCH AND THREW THE PIECES OVER MY DRIVEWAY FENCE.

 OUR ELDEST DRIVES UP TO VISIT. THIS WAS A NICE SURPRISE. WE SET HER UP IN A BEDROOM AND I ALSO INSTALLED HER ROKU TO THE " NEW " TV I JUST INSTALLED ON THE WALL YESTERDAY. SHE ACTIVATED THE ROKU TO ACCESS NETFLIX AND IT WORKED PERFECT.

 WHEELS PUTS IN ANOTHER 10 HOUR DAY.

 I WALK THE PUP OFF-LEASH AGAIN. IT IS THE PERFECT PLACE TO TRAIN HER.

 ANOTHER GOVERNMENT GRANT SHOT US DOWN. IT WAS ONLY 3K BUT ANY LITTLE THING WOULD OF HELPED.

 A PERSON OFFERS US 20K TO RENT OUR NORTH WILDWOOD CONDO FROM MEMORIAL DAY TO LABOR DAY. SEEMS LIKE ALOT OF MONEY BUT SEVERAL THINGS FACTOR IN LIKE -- WHAT DID WE MAKE LAST SEASON , WE WERE GOING TO RAISE RATES THIS SEASON ESPECIALLY SINCE COVID CRUSHED US , HOW ABOUT LAST SEASON RENTERS , AND A GOOD FACTOR IS NOT NEEDING A CLEANER ALL SEASON.

  THE THREE OF US TAKE A RIDE TO DINNER. I STOP TO GET GAS. AS I AM FUELING I HEAR WHEELS AND OUR ELDEST ROARING LAUGHING. I OPEN THE CAR DOOR AND SAY ," I ASSUME THAT LAUGHTER IS ABOUT ME ? " I WAS RIGHT.

 A VERY NICE DINNER AT DAMON'S GRILL AGAIN. RIBS , BURGER , FILET....ALL VERY GOOD.

  AFTER DINNER WE STOP AT A DOLLAR STORE FOR LAUNDRY DETERGENT. WE LEAVE WITH COOKIES , CANDY , ALLERGY MEDICINE , AND SOME OTHER THINGS I FORGET.

 AT THE GATE AGAIN WITH THE ANGRY OLD LADY MANNING THE BOOTH. THIS TIME I SAY , " YOU KNOW LAST NIGHT I OFFERED YOU COFFEE OR HOT CHOCOLATE. MAYBE I SHOULD OF SAID RED OR WHITE WINE ? " I COULDN'T BELIEVE I ACTUALLY MADE HER LAUGH AS SHE SAID ," IF WE'RE GOING TO DO IT RIGHT MAKE IT 3 BOTTLES. " WHEELS AND OUR ELDEST JUST SHOOK THEIR HEADS AS I DROVE OFF.

 AT HOME WE GET GREETED BY THE PUP. I NOTICE 2 OVERHEAD ROOF FLOOD LIGHTS ARE NOT WORKING. GREAT.......ADD IT TO THE PUNCH LIST.

 WE SETTLE IN WITH NIGHT CAPS AND WATCH AN EPISODE OF YELLOWSTONE. WHEN 1 SCENE MAKES YOU SCREAM AT THE TV.....THAT IS DAMN GOOD WRITING AND ACTING. THIS EPISODE WAS EXCELLENT.

 THE GIRLS MAKE ME WATCH AN EPISODE OF GREY'S ANATOMY. I WONDER IF THIS POPULAR SHOW CONVINCES ANY TRUMP SUPPORTERS ABOUT COVID-19.....PROBABLY NOT. THE WHOLE SHOW WAS BASED ON THE CORONA VIRUS. IT WAS GOOD. THE VERY END WHERE THE MAIN FEMALE CHARACTER IS RUNNING ON THE BEACH TO A FORMER LOVER IS PRETTY GOOD TOO.

 WE WATCH ANOTHER YELLOWSTONE. IT WAS VERY GOOD.

 OFF TO BED AND SLEPT DECENT.

 OH , OUR ELDEST HEARD SOME MOVEMENT UNDER THE AWNING. GREAT....ADD IT TO THE PUNCH LIST.

  FRIDAY      11 - 20 - 20

 PICTURE PERFECT WEATHER. I WOULD EVEN CALL IT WHEELSTOCK WEATHER.....ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS.

 ALWAYS SOMEONE BEING AN ASSHOLE WITH THEIR FUCKING OPINION. A BAND MEMBER POSTED ON FACEBOOK , " NAME A VENUE YOU PLAYED WHERE YOU HATED THE NAME. " GEE.....THE NAIL CAME UP TWICE.  I AM OKAY WITH THIS BUT THE SAME GUY WROTE , " I DON'T LIKE HOW THE OWNER GLORIFIES HIS PROPERTIES IN THE BATHROOM. "

 I WANTED TO REPLY ( BUT DIDN'T ) , " I SPENT 5 FUCKING YEARS BUILDING ONE HOME FROM THE GROUND UP WITH MY OWN HANDS. NO FUCKING WEEKENDS OR HOLIDAYS FOR 5 FUCKING YEARS. OH WE THREW A 4 DAY PARTY CALLED WHEELSTOCK FOR FREE.....BEER , LIQUOR , ALL MEALS FOR 200+....ALL FREE. THE OTHER HOME I REMODELED FOR MONTHS IN FILTH WHEN THE ENTIRE HOME WAS GUTTED DUE TO A WATER PIPE BREAK. I ALSO WORKED 70 HOUR WEEKS WITH 4 JOBS FOR 3 YEARS SO HANGING A FUCKING FLYER SEEMS LEGIT ON MY END. "

  WHEELS AND I TAKE A WALK WITH THE PUP. I PICK UP TRASH AGAIN ( AMAZING HOW FUCKING PEOPLE LITTER ) AND WE TALK TO A NEIGHBOR WHO FEEDS THE BEARS. SHE TOLD US SHE HAS NOT SEEN ONE BEAR IN OVER A MONTH AND WAS AFRAID " BOWTIE " ( THE BEAR ) WAS KILLED BY HUNTERS.

 WE AGAIN WALK MAZE OFF LEASH. SHE RUNS AROUND THE HOUSE AND DODGES US WHEN WE TRY TO TOUCH HER. ONE THING SHE LEAPT ABOUT 12 FEET IN THE AREA OFF A TINY HILL.....THAT WAS SO COOL.

  A VISUAL ( AND IT AIN'T PRETTY ) - WHEELS AND OUR ELDEST WERE LAUGHING DOWNSTAIRS AS I GRUNTED AND GROANED.

 THE VISUAL STORY - I NEEDED TO CHANGE 2 OUTDOOR FLOOD LIGHTS. I DECIDED NOT TO USE A LADDER AND SQUEEZE THROUGH A SMALL HALLWAY WINDOW. I HAD A CHAIR AND A SMALL LADDER UPSTAIRS SO I USED THEM. HERE IS THE VISUAL. I COULD NOT GO FORWARD THROUGH THE WINDOW BECAUSE THE DROP WAS ABOUT 5 FEET. SO , I WENT BACKWARDS THROUGH THE WINDOW ON MY BELLY. I WAS GOOD UNTIL I GOT TO MY BALLS. MY NUTS SLID AGAINST THE WINDOW LIP EDGE. I COULD NOT GO UP OR DOWN WITH MY FAT BELLY SO I LITERALLY HAD TO DRAG MY BALLS STRAIGHT OVER THE HARD PLASTIC EDGE. BOTH BALLS WERE FORCED UP AND INTO MY BODY AS IF I HAD A VAGINA.  I GROANED WITH PAIN UNTIL MY SET OF NUTS SLITHERED OVER THE 2ND OUTSIDE WOODEN EDGE. BOTH MY BALLS DROPPED BACK INTO PLACE AND I HARD SIGHED RELIEF.

 OUT ON THE AWNING I CLIMB THE ROOF PEEK AND REMOVE BOTH BURNT OUT FLOOD LIGHTS. MY ELDEST HANDS ME 2 NEW FLOODS THROUGH A BEDROOM WINDOW. I ALSO LEAF BLOW THE AWNING A 2ND TIME.

 2ND VISUAL STORY - NOW I MUST RE-ENTER BACK THROUGH THE SMALL HALLWAY WINDOW. ON MY BELLY AGAIN I JUMP A LITTLE INTO THE WINDOW ABOUT 1/3 OF THE WAY. I WIGGLE LIKE A WALRUS UNTIL I AM HALFWAY THROUGH. NOW , FROM THE OUTSIDE , IF ANYONE WAS LOOKING , WOULD SEE MY ASS AND LEGS POINTING STRAIGHT OUT AWAY FROM THE HOUSE. I MOVE LIKE A SEA LION BY RIPPLING MY BELLY AND HOLDING ONTO A CHAIR INSIDE THE HALLWAY. I GET TO MY KNEES AND NOW NEED TO DO A PUSH-UP USING THE CHAIR HANDLES. SO HERE IS ANOTHER VISUAL. ME PLANKING HALFWAY THROUGH A WINDOW HOLDING MY FRONT BODY UP BY DOING A HAND STAND WITH THE CHAIR RAILS AND MY MY FEET STILL IN THE SILL OF THE WINDOW. I GRAB THE LADDER AND FORCE ONE FOOT UP OVER MY SHOULDER ONTO THE CHAIR'S SEAT BELOW. IF I FALL I WILL ROLL DOWN THE STAIRWAY. THE REST OF MY BODY FOLLOWED LIKE JELLO GOING DOWN A SLIDING BOARD.

 I DO SOME OTHER SMALL PROJECTS BUT FOR THE MOST PART MY LIST IS DONE. THE HOUSE IS BACK UP TO SHIP SHAPE. I LOVE BEING HERE.

 MAKING WHEELS ( AND MY ELDEST ) CRY LAUGH AT LEAST ONCE A DAY. I THINK I DID IT 10 TIMES WITH GOING THROUGH A WINDOW EARLIER BUT I DID IT AGAIN. THE STORY :

 - OUR ELDEST ASKS FOR A ICED COFFEE MACHINE FOR CHRISTMAS. WHEELS PRICES THEM OUT FOR ABOUT $30 PLUS DELIVERY. I SAY , " LET ME TRY FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE. " OF COURSE I GET " THE LOOK " FROM BOTH OF THEM. IN SECONDS I FIND A BRAND NEW ICED COFFEE MAKER STILL IN THE BOX FOR $17. A BEAUTIFUL ITALIAN GIRL NAMED BETH FETTUCCINE FROM MOUNTAINTOP IS SELLING IT. WHAT A SCORE !!!....BRAND NEW AND CLOSE. IN FACT WE WERE JUST IN MOUNTAIN TOP GETTING A TV 3 DAYS AGO. MY HOPES QUICKLY FADE AS I SEE THE AD FOR THE COFFEE MAKER HAS BEEN UP FOR 15 WEEKS. THIS IS NOT GOOD. I WRITE TO HER , " IS THE ICED COFFEE MAKER STILL AVAILABLE AND WOULD YOU DO $10 ? "  SHE QUICKLY MESSAGES BACK " YES ". WE MESSAGE EACH OTHER BACK AND FORTH AND SHE SEEMS SUPER COOL. I CHECK OUT HER PROFILE PICTURE ON FACEBOOK AND SHE IS AN ABSOLUTE PIECE OF ASS......WITH A BOYFRIEND.

 WHEELS PUTS IN ANOTHER LONG DAY SO WE GO TO ADELINA'S RESTAURANT AGAIN IN MOUNTAIN TOP. IT WAS A 2 FOLD JOURNEY. 1 - HAVE ANOTHER GOOD MEAL AND 2 GET THE COFFEE MAKER. WE GET SEATED IN A LITTLE CUBBY HOLE AREA WHICH WAS FINE BY US BECAUSE WE WERE VERY FAR AWAY FROM ANYONE ELSE. THERE WAS A NICE CROWD THERE BUT WE WERE A 100 FEET FROM ANY OTHER TABLE.

 EXCELLENT SERVICE BY OUR ADORABLE WAITRESS. WE GOT SCALLOPS WRAPPED IN BACON ( AGAIN ) , CLAMS CASINOS ( TOO BREADY ) , GARLIC BREAD , LASAGNA , MEATBALLS , AND EGGPLANT PARM....ALONG WITH RED WINE AND GOOSE ISLAND IPA DRAFTS. AGAIN , EVERYTHING WAS GOOD.

 A 2ND SERVER REMEMBERED US FROM 3 NIGHTS AGO. I TELL BOTH A STORY. " I LIKE TO TELL YOU WHAT 30 YEARS OF MARRIAGE IS. WE ARE IN THIS LITTLE CUBBY HOLE AREA WHICH WE LIKE. BUT.....I DO NOT LIKE HAVING MY BACK AGAINST PEOPLE OR OTHER TABLES WITH CUSTOMERS. SO MY WIFE ALWAYS LETS ME FACE THEM. TONIGHT , SINCE MY WIFE HAD A LONG WEEK , I ASKED HER IF SHE LIKE TO FACE THE MAIN ROOM AND PEOPLE. " BOTH GIRLS SAY , " OHHHH THAT'S CUTE WHILE WHEELS RESPONDS ," YEAH , AFTER 30 YEARS I GET SEATED THIS WAY ONCE. " WE LAUGH.

 I TEXT THE HOT ITALIAN GIRL WE ARE MINUTES AWAY. WE WERE ONLY 2 MINUTES FROM HER HOUSE. SHE ANSWERS THE DOOR IN PAJAMAS AND A WHITE TIGHT TEE SHIRT WITH A MASK......PIECE.......OF......ASS. SHE IS SUPER COOL AND SUPER POLITE. I ASK HER IF SHE HAS EVER BEEN TO ADELINA'S ? SHE REPLIES , " YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BELIEVE THIS BUT NO. " I SAY ," OH MY GOD , IT IS 2 MINUTES FROM YOU. YOU HAVE TO CHECK IT OUT. " I GIVE HER $10 AND SHE OFFERS A QUICK HAND JOB BUT I SAY , " I CAN'T. MY WIFE IS IN THE CAR. "

 OK , MAKING WHEELS AND OUR ELDEST CRY LAUGH SO HARD THEY COULD NOT BREATHE. THIS COFFEE MAKER IS A CHRISTMAS GIFT FOR OUR ELDEST. SHE IS SITTING OUTSIDE SO I ASK WHEELS TO WALK WITH ME WHILE BOTH OF US HOLD THE COFFEE MAKER BOX ( FROM FACEBOOK MARKETPLACE ) FOR 10 BUCKS. WE SLOWLY WALK OUTSIDE LIKE 2 OLD PEOPLE AND SAY TO OUR ELDEST , " MERRY CHRISTMAS !! WE LOVE YOU !! " OUR DAUGHTER ROARS LAUGHS AND SAYS , " OH MY GOD I WISHED I VIDEOED TAPED THAT !! " SO WHEELS AND I RE-ENACT IT AGAIN. NOW BOTH WHEELS AND OUR DAUGHTER ARE CRYING LAUGHING.

 ELDEST TAKES A 45 MINUTE JACUZZI.

 WHEELS AND I FINISH SEASON 2 OF YELLOWSTONE. IT WAS VERY GOOD TO EXCELLENT. I ACTUALLY REPLAYED A SCENE FOR OUR ELDEST BECAUSE THIS ONE FEMALE CHARACTER IS SO BAD ASS.

 OFF TO BED AROUND MIDNIGHT AND SLEPT BAD GOOD UNTIL 5AM. AFTER PEEING TWICE I JUST GOT UP AT 6AM. THE PUP FOLLOWED ABOUT 20 MINUTES LATER. I WALK HER OUTSIDE OFF-LEASH AND WE SEE THE 4 POINT BUCK AGAIN.

  SATURDAY         11 - 21 - 20

  2 HOURS SLEEP AT MOST. IT JUST PISSES ME OFF THAT IN THIS BEAUTIFUL HOME AND AREA I DON'T SLEEP FOR 10 HOURS. I GO TO BED AT 11PM AND WAKE UP THINKING IT HAS TO BE 5 OR 6 HOURS LATER....MAYBE EVEN SEE SUNLIGHT. NOPE........IT WAS 12:30AM.

 A FAMILY MEMBER SENDING ME A PICTURE OF A GUY SQUEEZING THROUGH A SMALL WINDOW WAS PRETTY FUNNY. ( READ YESTERDAY'S BLOG )

 STILL.....A GOOD DAY.

 WALK THE PUP AND FEED HER. NOT SURE HOW MANY DOGS GET MORE EXCITED FOR FOOD THAN RUNNING OUTSIDE IN THE WOODS AND A LAKE BUT THIS ONE PREFERS FOOD.

 BEEN HERE A WEEK AND SEEN 2 PEOPLE..........2.

 YEARS AGO I SAW AN OTTER IN THE LAKE FROM ABOUT 200 YARDS. I THINK I MISTAKENED IT FOR A BLACK MINK. WE SAW A NEIGHBOR WALKING HER DOG AND SHE SAID SHE JUST SAW A MINK. WHEELS WALKED TO THE AREA AND TRIED TO BACKTRACK BUT COULD NOT SEE IT.

 DID SOME LITTLE THINGS BUT MOSTLY MY PUNCH LIST IS COMPLETED.

  FIVE STRAIGHT DAYS OF ZERO ACTIVITY FROM THE CRITTERS.

 WHEELS TAKES A RIDE TO THE DOLLAR STORE AND LIQUOR STORE.

  LATE MORNING WE TRY A NEW TV SERIES CALLED THE UNDOING WITH NICOLE KIDMAN. WE WATCHED A TOTAL OF 4 EPISODES OVER THE COURSE OF THE DAY AND NIGHT. THEY WERE GOOD TO VERY GOOD. YOUNG ITALIAN ACTRESS WHO GETS NAKED EVERY SCENE......PIECE OF ASS.

 TAKE A RIDE TO LEHIGH GORGE TRAIL. WE WALKED DOWN TO THE LEHIGH RIVER. MAZE WAS A NUT JOB AND HER JUMPING INTO THE RIVER WAS HILARIOUS. I AM PRETTY SURE SHE THOUGHT SHE COULD RUN ON WATER. WE TOOK SOME COOL PICTURES......LIKE A PICTURE OF SOMEONE WHO SPRAY PAINTED PURPLE LETTERS ON A BRIDGE PILLAR THAT WROTE " LOSER TRUMP ".

 WE STOP AT GROCERY STORE TO PICK UP SUPPLIES FOR OUR ELDEST.

 BACK HOME WE CHILL AND WATCH PENN STATE LOSE AGAIN.

  OUT TO DINNER BUT WE FIRST STOP AT THE LIQUOR STORE FOR OUR ELDEST. SHE LIKE A LITTLE WHITE WINE WITH HER DINNER.

  WE DRIVE TO CHARLIE WEAVERS RESTAURANT FOR THE 3RD TIME IN UNDER A WEEK. WE GOT SEATED AND I FELT BAD MOVING TO ANOTHER ROOM. THE REASON......WE WANTED THE OTHER ROOM WHERE WE KNOW THE OWNER / WAITRESS " MIKE ". AGAIN , THE FOOD WAS OUTSTANDING WITH LARGE PORTIONS. GOOD GOD I THINK I PUT ALL 30 POUNDS BACK ON THIS WEEK. WE DID SHORT RIBS , PRIME RIB , MARYLAND CRAB CAKES , CORN BREAD , GARLIC BREAD , BROCCOLI , MASHED POTATOES , BAKED POTATO , PUMPKIN RICE PUDDING , APPLE CRUMB PIE WITH ICE CREAM , AND RED & WHITE WINE. WE REQUESTED TO MEET THE HUSBAND / CHEF AND HE REMINDED ME OF OUR SOUND MAN. IT WAS A GOOD TIME.

 BACK HOME WE ARE GREETED CRAZILY BY MAZE. IT IS PURE JOY. WE SETTLE IN.

 WE PLAY AN ELLEN DEGENERES GAME WHERE YOU HOLD YOUR CELL PHONE TO YOUR HEAD AND A WORD POPS UP. THE OTHER PLAYERS DESCRIBE WHAT THE WORD IS FOR THE CELL PHONE PLAYER TO GUESS. OH MY GOD I AM SO BAD.

 WE WATCH SEASON 3 OPENER OF YELLOWSTONE. IT WAS " EH " AT BEST. WE ALSO WATCHED SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE REBOOT , THE MASKED SINGER , AND THE UNDOING.

 I WENT TO BED AT 9:53PM. THIS 2 HOUR A NIGHT SLEEP CATCHES UP TO ME BIG TIME BY MID-EVENING. I DID CHILL IN MY BED AND WATCH SOME TV. IT ONLY LASTED ABOUT 20 MINUTES. I FELL ASLEEP AND WAS AWAKENED WHEN A HALLWAY LIGHT WAS TURNED ON AT 12:30AM.

 COVID-19 CASES SOURING OUT OF CONTROL.....IF YOU BELIEVE THE NEWS , CDC , OTHER COUNTRIES REPORTS , INTERNET REPORTS , INTERVIEWED DOCTORS , NURSES , FIRST RESPONDERS , AND NEWS PAPERS. BUT ONLY IF YOU BELIEVE ALL OF THESE. MOST LIKELY THEY ARE ALL COORDINATING TO PRODUCE FAKE NEWS.

  SUNDAY      11 - 23 - 20

  WELP...........BACK TO REALITY.

  JUST FOUND OUT A FAMILY MEMBER LOST HER DAD TO DUE COMPLICATIONS OF PHENOMENA. IT IS A HORRIBLE FEELING ESPECIALLY WHEN THE GUY WAS HONORABLE AND A SUPER DECENT HUMAN BEING.

  WHEELS AND I ARE UP EARLY AND DECIDE TO HEAD BACK HOME SINCE WE HAVE THINGS TO DO. WE CLEAN AND ORGANIZE FOR ABOUT AN HOUR. OUR ELDEST WILL STAY AND CHILL TO MID-WEEK UNTIL RENTERS ARRIVE. SHE CALLS US AND SAYS , " WHY DIDN'T YOU SAY GOODBYE ? I WOKE UP TO AN EMPTY HOUSE ? " OUR REPLY , " WELL , IT WAS 11AM AND WE DIDN'T WANT TO WAKE YOU. " LATER WE BOUGHT HER TAKE-OUT FROM CHARLIE WEAVER'S RESTAURANT. ( 4TH TIME ORDERING IN A WEEK ).

 I SAY THIS OFTEN. I LOVE HAVING A POCONO HOME WHERE IT ONLY TAKES 75 MINUTES TO DRIVE FROM HOUSE TO HOUSE. WE UNLOAD AND SETTLE IN.

 I HAVE BEEN DEFENDING CARSON WENTZ THE ENTIRE SEASON. TWO GUYS ON SOCIAL MEDIA RIP ME FOR DONG THIS. THEY SAY FIRE THE COACH , SIT WENTZ , START THE ROOKIE , AND FIRE EVERYONE. I TRIED TO EXPLAIN THE WHOLE PICTURE OF NOT HAVING AN OFFENSIVE LINE ( ALL HURT ) , NO WIDE RECEIVERS ( ALL HURT ) , NO TIGHT ENDS ( ALL HURT ) , BAD PLAY CALLING , DEFENSE BLOWS , MOST SACKED QB IN THE NFL , MOST QB HURRIES IN THE NFL , AND LISTENING TO OPINIONS FROM SETH JOYNER , RON JAWORKSI , DICK VERMEIL , AND HALL OF FAME WRITER RAY DIDINGER. HE WROTE BACK " DID YOU SEE THAT INTERCEPTION FOR A PICK 6 ? ( WHEN WENTZ WAS HIT FROM BEHIND ). WORSE THROW I EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE. ALSO THE PEOPLE YOU NAMED ARE DINOSAURS AND DIDINGER IS A HACK. " I JUST SHOOK MY HEAD AND FOUND OUT HE IS A COWBOY FAN.

 I DO ADMIT WENTZ WAS THE MAIN PROBLEM IN THE LOSS TODAY. A VERY WINNABLE GAME BUT GETTING AWAY FROM THE RUN AND NOT ADJUSTING ( LIKE THE BROWNS DID ) COST US THE GAME.......AGAIN. WHEN WENTZ GOT SACKED IN THE END ZONE FOR A SAFETY MERRILL REESE SCREAMS OUT , " THE WHOLE WORLD KNEW YOU HAD TO THROW IT AWAY. "

 THE SMALL CRACK ON OUR WINDSHIELD GOT EXTENDED. I NOW MUST REPLACE IT FOR THE 2ND TIME IN 6 MONTHS. I MADE A SAFELITE APPOINTMENT FOR TOMORROW.

 WHEELS DOES LAUNDRY. THE DOOR KNOB FALLS OFF THE DOOR. YEP.....GOT TO FIX THAT. THAN SHE SAID , " IS IT NORMAL THE INSIDE OF THE DOOR IS SWEATING ? " THE LINT MUST OF BACKED UP CLOGGING THE DRYER VENT. I WENT OUTSIDE AND NO AIR WAS BEING MOVED THROUGH IT.  WELP , ADD THIS TO THE LIST.

 WE HAVE SOME LEFTOVERS FOR A LATE LUNCH.

  BY 5PM I HEAD TO THE NAIL. I HAVE A SPECIAL OF $5 PBR POUNDER SIX PACKS AND $1 FRIES OR ONION RING ORDERS. I HANG UNTIL 9PM. I TALKED TO ONE ARTIST FOR ABOUT 45 MINUTES WHICH WAS VERY NICE.

 ROLL HOME AND TRY TO WATCH YELLOWSTONE. THE 3RD SEASON HAS BEEN FREE ON PARAMOUNT FOR 6 MONTHS. NOW , IT COSTS MONEY. I TRIED PEACOCK AND ON-DEMANDING....ALL COST MONEY. JUST ONE WEEK AGO SEASON 3 WAS FREE. WE USED A FREE TRIAL TO WATCH THE FIRST 2 SEASONS WHILE IN THE POCONOS FIGURING WHEN WE GET HOME WE WATCH THE 3RD SEASON FOR FREE......NOPE.

 WE WATCH 2 EPISODES OF THE CONNORS. BOTH WERE GOOD. THE CHARACTER " JACKIE " IS PRETTY FUNNY.

  OFF TO BED THINKING AND HOPING BILL GATES PREDICTION OF " NORMALCY " WILL RETURN IN THE SUMMER OF 2021.

  MONDAY      11 - 23 - 20

    WORST BIRTHDAY EVER.............TUESDAY 11 / 24 / 20 A SOCIAL MEDIA POST WAS MADE AT 8AM.

   " WITH A CRUSHING HEART I AM TESTING THE WATERS OF SELLING THE NAIL. SO MANY BANDS , SO MANY FRIENDS , SO MANY MEMORIES. NOT THE BEST BIRTHDAY GIFT. "

 THINGS I WILL MISS AND LOSE :

 - COUNTLESS FRIENDS AND BAND MEMBERS LOST. I HAVE NO FRIENDS SO THIS IS PROBABLY GOING TO HURT THE MOST.

 - MINGLING AND JOKING WITH PATRONS AND PEOPLE. I LOVED ENTERTAINING AND MAKING PEOPLE LAUGH. THIS WILL ALL BE GONE.

 - WORKING WITH MY INCREDIBLE STAFF. I LOVED THEM LIKE FAMILY.

 - ALL MY CONTACTS WITH CONTRACTORS , TRADERS , BUSINESSES , ETC......GONE.

 - MERCURY AMUSEMENTS - BEST AND MOST HARD WORKING BUSINESS AROUND. THEY HELPED ME FIX ARCADE MACHINES , SOUND SYSTEMS , COMPUTER STUFF , POOL TABLES ( FOR MY OWN HOUSE TOO ) AND MORE......ALL GONE.

 - BOOZE - YEP , AN ENDLESS SUPPLY OF BEER , LIQUOR , AND WINE ALL OPEN 24/7 IF WE NEEDED IT AND AT A DISCOUNT. IT ALSO HELPED OUT A 1000 TIMES WHEN WE THREW PRIVATE PARTIES AT HOME.

 - FOOD - BUYING IN BULK AT RESTAURANT DEPOT. THIS WAS A VERY NICE PERK WITH MEATS , CHEESES , AND MORE.....GONE. WON'T NEED MY DELI SLICER ANYMORE.

 - CASH - WE NEVER EVER USED AN A.T.M.  WE DID NOT MAKE MUCH MONEY BUT ALWAYS HAD CASH ON HAND.

 - WHAT WILL I DO ? I AM ALMOST 60 , OVER WEIGHT , HAVE THE MOST SEVERE CASE OF SLEEP APNEA EVER SEEN ( 3 DOCTORS SAID THIS ON 3 DIFFERENT STUDIES ) AND I FALL ASLEEP AT THE DROP OF A HAT.

 - BEING SEMI-POPULAR. EVERYONE KNEW THE NAIL AND I LOVED IT.

 - THIS BLOG WILL BE SORELY MISSED. IT WAS A GREAT OUTLET FOR ME TO WRITE AND RELEASE FEELINGS AND HUMOR.........GONE.

 - LIVE AT THE NAIL RADIO SHOW - I CRIED LAUGHED EVERY SHOW. JUST LOOKING AT MY CO-HOST B.B. MADE ME LAUGH. NO MORE RADIO AFFILIATES , NO MORE INTERVIEWS , NO MORE BAND CONTACTS , AND NO MORE CO-HOSTS.

 - THE DUMPSTER - HELPED ME A 1,000 TIMES.

 - VACATION FLYERS FOR RENT OF OUR PROPERTIES HANGING AT THE NAIL.......GONE.

 - A JOB FOR OUR KIDS WHO MADE MORE MONEY IN ONE NIGHT THAN THEY DID IN ONE WEEK ( SOMETIMES 2 ) AT A REGULAR JOB. OUR STAFF LOSING THEIR PART TIME JOBS TOO.

 - I LOSE ABOUT 75% OF MY LIFE BECAUSE IT REVOLVES AROUND THE NAIL.

 WELP , THIS IS ALL I COULD THINK OF.

   TUESDAY        11 - 24 - 20

  AND THAN A POURING OF KINDNESS.

  AFTER A FACEBOOK POST OF ME STARTING THE BALL IN SELLING THE NAIL NEARLY 300 PEOPLE RESPONDED WITH SUPPORT WITHIN 2 HOURS.  I WAS COMPLETELY OVERTAKEN THAT PEOPLE WOULD STEP UP ESPECIALLY OUR DAUGHTER WHO LIKE TO SPEAR HEAD ALL FUND RAISING EVENTS. PLUS , THERE WAS BAND SUPPORT , TEE SHIRTS BEING MADE SAYING " SAVE THE NAIL " ,  STREAMING LIVE SHOWS , SELLING TICKETS , AND MORE. I JUST COULD NOT BELIEVE THE STORIES AND OUTPOURING OF LOVE. I AM SO USED TO DOING EVERYTHING ON MY OWN. I MEAN IT'S ALWAYS JUST ME. FROM DAY 1 OF RUNNING THE NAIL I NEVER HAD ANY HELP. NOW THIS HAPPENS. IT WAS A SMALL MIRACLE.

 I START MY DAY AND NEVER LOOK AT THE FACEBOOK POST.

  IN CENTER CITY I HELP OUR YOUNGEST MOVE OUT OF HER UNIVERSITY AND HEAD HOME. SHE HAD EVERYTHING READY WHICH WAS HUGE. WE USED 2 LARGE PLASTIC BINS ON ROLLERS AND COMPLETED THE MOVE FROM HER DORM ROOM IN LESS THAN 20 MINUTES. HAVING THIS MINIVAN WAS PERFECT TOO. I FELT BAD FOR OUR YOUNGEST BECAUSE BEING ON CAMPUS IS THE FUN PART.

 STOPPED AT WAWA TO GET BREAKFAST / LUNCH. I PICKED A HORRIBLE BREAKFAST SANDWICH.

 BACK HOME WE UNLOAD AND SETTLE IN. OUR YOUNGEST PLAYED WITH THE PUP FOR OVER AN HOUR. IT WAS ADORABLE TO SEE.

 MY YOUNGEST AND I SHOT POOL IN THE BASEMENT FOR OVER AN HOUR. WE WATCHED SOME TV , LISTENED TO MUSIC , PLAYED WITH THE PUP AGAIN , AND WHEELS JOINED US LATER.

 WE WERE 50/50 ON VISITING SOME FAMILY FOR A UNION SOCCER PLAYOFF GAME AND MY BIRTHDAY.  IT ALL HINGED AROUND OUR VAN'S WINDSHIELD BEING REPLACED AGAIN. THE SAFELITE TECH SHOWED UP 6 HOURS LATE BUT COMPLETED THE JOB IN 35 MINUTES. IT CAME OUT REALLY NICE.......AGAIN.

 AND THAN IT WAS NICE TO HAVE FAMILY SUPPORT ON MY LOWEST DAY.

 HERE'S SOME DETAILS.

  - OFF TO A FAMILY MEMBER'S HOUSE. WE ALL GIGGLED AS WE ARE PARKING THE CAR AND LOOK UP TO THEIR HOUSE. WE SEE MY EXCITED NEPHEWS IN THE WINDOWS WAITING FOR US. IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL SIGHT AND A WONDERFUL MEMORY NOW.

 - WE ENTER AND MY NEPHEWS ARE HOLDING A LONG 10 FOOT SIGN SPELLING OUT " HAPPY BIRTHDAY ".

 - WE CHILL , DRINK , EAT PIZZA , TALK , WATCH SOCCER , AND MAKE JOKES. IT WAS WONDERFUL SEEING OUR YOUNGEST INTERACT WITH OUR YOUNG NEPHEWS.

 - EVEN MORE SPECIAL WAS OUR ELDEST FACE TIMING IN AND SINGING HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME WITH ALL THE FAMILY. IT WAS SOUL SOOTHING AND GREAT TO SEE. I TRULY NEEDED IT.

 - WE DIVVY UP CAKE FOR EVERYONE.

 - UNFORTUNATELY OUR UNION SOCCER TEAM LOST. THIS WAS THE ONLY DOWN POINT OF THE NIGHT.

 - I GOT SMALL GIFTS OFF MY NEPHEW'S DRAWINGS TO A TURKEY ART CRAFT DOORKNOB DECORATION TO A BIRTHDAY CARD.

 - WHILE EATING CAKE MY NEPHEW SAYS , " THIS IS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE ". ( HE'S 5 ) WE ALL LAUGH.

 - NEPHEW WRITES , " DEER CHRIS ( I KNOW DEAR IS SPELLED WRONG ) , HOPE WE CAN HAVE A SLEEPOVER SOON "

 - NEPHEW WRITES , " YOU ARE THE  BEST GODFATHER AND UNCLE EVER !! " YOU MAKE ME LAUGH AND FEEL SPECIAL ALL THE TIME. "

 - NEPHEW WRITES , " YOUR THE BEST UNCLE EVER. LOVE YOU SO MUCH., YOU ARE SO FUNNY. IT IS SO MUCH FUN WHEN YOU ARE OVER AT ANY TIME. "

  I RARELY GET ATTENTION SO THIS WAS PERFECT TIMING FOR IT.

 WE ROLL HOME AND IT WAS SUCH A NICE VISIT. IF THAT SAFELITE TECH WAS AN HOUR LATER I PROBABLY WOULD OF STAYED HOME. SO , THANK YOU SAFELITE FOR BEING 6 HOURS LATE AND NOT 7.

  AT HOME WE LET OUR YOUNGEST ENTER FIRST. WHEELS AND I WATCH FROM THE WINDOW AS CRAZY MAZE ATTACKS OUR KID WITH HAPPINESS. IT WAS HEART WARMING TO SEE.

 WELL I HEAD TO BED THINKING AT THE START OF THIS DAY IT TRULY WAS THE LOWEST POINT OF MY LIFE. IT WAS UNTHINKABLE OF ME IN SELLING THE NAIL AND LOSING OVER 75% OF MY LIFE AND IT'S MANY SMALL PERKS. IT WAS CRUSHING AND DEVASTATING TO KNOW I WILL HAVE NONE IF THIS EVER AGAIN. I FELT LIKE I WAS ALONE AS I ALWAYS AM. I TRULY THOUGHT NO ONE REALLY CARED ABOUT ME AND THE NAIL........NOT ONE SINGLE PERSON. THAN  I MADE THIS SOCIAL MEDIA POST AND OF ALL PEOPLE MY DAUGHTER STEPPED UP FIRST. THAN CLOSE TO 300 FANS GAVE SUPPORT TOO. THERE WAS SEVERAL TIMES TODAY I HAD TO HOLD BACK TEARS AS MY ELDEST WAS TEXTING ME , " ARE SEEING THE RESPONSES ON YOUR POST ? " I DID NOT READ THEM UNTIL THE NEXT MORNING. I WAS OVERWHELMED WITH EMOTION. I COULD NOT BELIEVE HOW MANY BANDS AND PEOPLE SUPPORTED THE NAIL. IT WAS SO NICE TO SEE.

 I AM REALISTIC AND FEEL GRATEFUL WITH THIS SUPPORT IN TRYING TO SAVE THE NAIL. WHATEVER HAPPENS WILL HAPPEN.

 THE ONLY OTHER THING THAT COULD COMPLETE THIS WONDERFUL DAY IS ADAM SANDLER CALLING ME.

  WEDNESDAY      11 - 25 - 20

  I DIDN'T KNOW..................AND NOW IT HURTS EVEN MORE.

  ON FACEBOOK , IN LESS THAN 24 HOURS , OVER 400 NAIL FANS , FAMILY , BANDS , AAND BAND MEMBERS HAVE RESPONDED TO MY POST ABOUT SELLING. SOME OF THE POSTS BROUGHT TEARS TO ME AND OUR ELDEST.  IT WAS TRULY TOUCHING AND HEART WARMING.

 TODAY WAS A CHILL DAY BUT TURNED INTO A GET TOGETHER BY SIMPLY ME SAYING , " IF YOU ARE BY YOURSELF , COME ON OVER FOR DINNER. "

 I WATCHED COURTNEY HARDWIN MUSIC VIDEOS AND AUDITION TAPE FOR OVER AN HOUR. I ALSO WATCHED SOME INCREDIBLE SOCCER GOALS AND WORLD SERIES OF POKER HANDS.

  THE FOUR OF US HAD A NICE DINNER PREPARED BY WHEELS. IT WAS THE 1ST TIME ALL FOUR OF US SAT AT THE DINNER TABLE IN A LONG TIME. I ENJOYED EVERY MINUTE. I JUST STARED AT MY KIDS AND WAS SO THANKFUL THEY WERE HERE AT ONE OF THE LOWEST POINTS OF MY LIFE.

 ALL OF US WENT TO THE BASEMENT TO SHOOT POOL , HAVE SOME DRINKS MADE BY OUR ELDEST , AND LISTEN TO MUSIC. IT WAS WONDERFUL. LATER MORE FAMILY JOINED US.

 THE KIDS AND THE PUPPY TAKE A RIDE TO THE NAIL TO PICK UP BOOZE. NICE PERK TO HAVE.

  I INVITE MY BROTHER-IN-LAW OVER SINCE HE WAS BY HIMSELF. IT ENDS UP HIS WHOLE FAMILY CAME OVER WHICH WAS REALLY NICE.  WE MADE A FIRE PIT AND I EVEN INVITED MY NEIGHBOR WHO WAS BY HERSELF TOO. OUR ELDEST INVITED 2 FRIENDS. NOW WE HAVE A FULL GET TOGETHER. WE SAT AROUND THE FIRE PIT ALL NIGHT. IN FACT ......TO 1:45AM BUT THAN IT STARTED TO RAIN.

 EARLIER OUR KIDS AND MY NIECE WHEN OUT AND BOUGHT SUPPLIES FOR SMORES. WE SAT 6 FEET APART FROM EACH OTHER AROUND THE FIRE PIT. IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL NIGHT. IT WAS SO NICE I HAD NO JACKET ON AND IN JUST A TEE SHIRT.  I SET-UP CHAIRS WITH PADS , SMALL TABLES , AND TURNED OFF ANY LIGHTS FROM OUR HOUSE. THE AMBIANCE WAS PERFECT. I REALLY ENJOYED THE NIGHT. I TOLD A TON OF STORIES OF WHEN I WAS YOUNG.

 RENTERS CALLED TO SEE IF THEY CAN CHECK-IN ONE DAY EARLIER. WE ALLOWED IT.

 THAN MY ELDEST SAID SOMETHING THAT I DID NOT KNOW. SHE STARTS TELLING ME ABOUT THE HUNDREDS OF COMMENTS AND POSTS BY PEOPLE ON OUR RUSTY NAIL FACEBOOK PAGE. SHE READS SOME AND STARTS TO GET UPSET AND SAYS , " WE HAVE TO SAVE THE NAIL. I WAS REALLY HOPING SOME DAY IT WOULD BE PASSED ON TO ME. "

 I NEVER HEARD HER SAY THIS BEFORE OR SHOW ANY INTEREST. MAYBE THIS IS WHY SHE IS SPEAR HEADING A FUND RAISER. I COULD NOT BELIEVE I HEARD HER SAY THOSE WORDS. I JUST GOT QUIET AND THOUGHT , " I WOULD LOVE TO PASS IT ON , BUT IT JUST IS NOT THAT REALISTIC. IT WOULD BE SO COOL THOUGH. "

  THURSDAY       11 - 26 - 20  ( THANKSGIVING )

  " OH MY GOD , I RATHER BUY A HOUSE WITH THESE PRICES SO HIGH !! " ................. ( THAN MY RESPONSE. )

 A LADY ASKED WHY OUR WEEKLY PRICES FOR OUR CONDO WERE SO HIGH. SHE RAMBLED ON ABOUT GETTING A MORTGAGE OR BUYING A HOUSE BEFORE PAYING THAT MUCH RENT FOR A BEACH HOUSE. I REPLIED , " $1700 IS WHAT WE CHARGE A WEEK FOR OUR OCEANFRONT PROPERTY DURING THE PEAK MONTHS OF SUMMER. OTHER OWNERS CHARGE $2500 OR MORE. I THINK YOU SHOULD INVESTIGATE AN AREA FURTHER AWAY FROM THE OCEAN LIKE.............KENTUCKY. "

 WE DECIDED TO HAVE THANKSGIVING WITH JUST OUR IMMEDIATE FAMILY.....A TOTAL OF 4. IT WAS ACTUALLY VERY NICE AND ONE OF MY FAVORITES.

 MADE CALLS TO BROTHERS AND NEPHEWS TO WISH HAPPY THANKSGIVING. WE ALSO GOT A VERY NICE CALL FROM A NIECE AND HER BOYFRIEND IN PORTLAND.

 WHEELS COOKED ALL DAY WHILE WE BOTHERED HER. I HAVE TO ADMIT THIS WAS THE BEST THANKSGIVING MEAL SHE EVER PUT TOGETHER............TURKEY , MASHED POTATOES WITH GRAVY , MAC & CHEESE , BAKED STRING BEANS IN OIL , CROISSANTS , CRANBERRY SAUCE , STUFFING , APPLE CRUST PIE , AND PUMPKIN PIE.

 MOST LIKELY CHRISTMAS WILL BE THE SAME WITH SOCIALLY DISTANCING OURSELVES. WHEELS HAD AN IDEA OF INDIVIDUAL VISITS TO OUR PARENTS FROM ALL THE SONS AND NEPHEWS. WE WILL DO A ZOOM MEETING TOO.

 COWBOYS GET SMOKED 41 - 16 BY THE WASHINGTON FOOTBALL TEAM. YES....THIS ALWAYS HELPS US EAGLE FANS FEEL BETTER.

 I WATCHED A WORLD BEYOND EPISODE. IT WAS OK TO GOOD.

 THE WEATHER IS SO NICE. I FEEL LIKE GOING BACK TO THE SEASHORE IF IT WASN'T RENTED. ACTUALLY BOTH PROPERTIES ARE RENTED.

 A ZOOM MEETING WITH WHEELS' FAMILY. IT WAS VERY NICE. I HAD TO BE WOKEN UP AND ONCE I SAT IN.....THE JOKES FLEW. MAN , I LOOK FAT ON A COMPUTER SCREEN.

 AFTER DINNER , DRINKS , AND MUSIC ALL OF US CHILL FOR A VIDEO / CELL PHONE GAME. USING YOUR CELL PHONE YOU ANSWER QUESTIONS POPPING UP ON THE TV. OUR YOUNGEST SET IT UP. IT WAS PRETTY FUN AND YOU COMPETE AGAINST EACH OTHER. I ALWAYS DO BAD.

 WE WATCH EPISODE 5 OF THE UNDOING. IT WAS VERY GOOD. THE ENDING WAS EXCELLENT. EPISODE 6 AND THE SERIES FINALE SHOULD BE GOOD.

 WE TAKE ABOUT 10 MINUTES TO SET UP THE FREE 7 DAY TRIAL FOR WATCHING PEACOCK TV. WE WATCHED EPISODE 2 OF YELLOWSTONE. IT WAS " EH " TO OKAY.

 WHEELS HEADS TO BED. ELDEST GOES TO A FRIENDS HOUSE FOR A SLEEPOVER. SO , OUR YOUNGEST , THE PUP , AND ME CHILL SOME MORE. IT WAS VERY NICE.

 AS OUR YOUNGEST IS HUGGING THE PUP I ASK , " DO EVER TALK TO MAZE ? " SHE RESPONDS , " YEAH ". I ASK , " WHAT DO YOU SAY ? " SHE GIGGLES AND REPLIES , " I DON'T KNOW. " I TELL THE PUP , " SHE IS BECOMING ONE OF MY FAVORITE , SHE IS CALMING AND FUN AND MAKES ME FEEL LOVED. I THANK HER EVERY DAY FOR THAT. " OUR KID RESPONDS , " GEEEEESH ".

 IT IS NOW CLOSER TO 500 PEOPLE RESPONDING TO MY FACEBOOK POST ABOUT SELLING THE NAIL. I DO NOT READ THEM MUCH BUT ONE CAUGHT MY EYE.....IT WAS MY YOUNGEST WHO RARELY POSTS COMMENTS.

  IT READ , " IT'S GREAT TO SEE ALL THESE HEARTFELT COMMENTS. I'M CHRIS' YOUNGEST DAUGHTER AND HAVE MANY MEMORIES AT THE NAIL AS WELL. MANY OF YOU KNOW HOW PROUD OUR DAD IS. HE ALWAYS SAYS HE'LL DO 10 THINGS FOR YOU BEFORE YOU DO 1 FOR HIM. A FUND RAISER LIVE STREAM IS CERTAINLY IN ORDER !!  

 # SAVETHENAIL "

 AFTER READING THE FACEBOOK POST BY OUR YOUNGEST I WALKED OVER TO WHERE SHE WAS LAYING ON THE COUCH. I KNELT DOWN BESIDE THE COUCH AND HUGGED HER. I WHISPERED IN HER EAR , " THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE FACEBOOK COMMENT. THAT MEANT A GREAT DEAL TO ME. "

  FRIDAY    11 - 27 - 20

 NORMAL OR ABNORMAL ROUTINE AGAIN.....PUPPY , POOP , FEED , ETC.

 DECIDED TO OPEN THE NAIL EARLY AT 5PM JUST TO SEE IF ANYONE WOULD STOP BY OR CALL FOR 6 PACKS OR TAKE OUT FOOD..........NOPE. I DID TALK TO MY NEIGHBOR WHO RETIRED SEVERAL WEEKS AGO. THAT IS A SMART THING TO DO.

  BACK HOME WE SHOOT POOL DOWN OUR BASEMENT FOR THE 3RD TIME IN 4 NIGHTS. IT WAS NICE TO DO.

 THE PUP JUST BRINGS ABSOLUTE PURE JOY AND LAUGHTER A 100 TIMES  DAY. MAN , WHAT A GOOD TIME TO HAVE A PUP IN OUR FAMILY.

 PEACOCK CHARGES US $5 AND DOES NOT ALLOW THE FREE 7 DAY TRIAL....BASTARDS.

 WE WATCH 2 EPISODES OF YELLOWSTONE. AGAIN , GOOD BUT NOT AWESOME LIKE I WAS TOLD. I AM SURE IT WILL PICK UP.

 I WATCHED SEVERAL EPISODES OF LETTERKENNY. THE SCENE WITH THE AMISH COUPLE EXPLAINING THEY NEED HELP FROM SOME LOCALS IS DOWN RIGHT HILARIOUS. THEY USE A PLAY OF WORDS AND SEXUAL INNUENDOS BIG TIME FOR LIKE 10 MINUTES OF DIALOGUE. TO THE AMISH IT IS JUST HOW THEY TALK AND INNOCENT. TO THE LOCALS .....IT IS TOTALLY SEXUALLY BIZARRE.

 WE WATCHED A SPECIAL ON THE BEEGEES LIVE IN CONCERT. IT WAS VERY GOOD. MAN , THEY HAVE A SHIT LOAD OF SONGS.

 GAVE WHEELS A FULL BODY MASSAGE FOR 30 MINUTES. SHE WAS ON THE GROUND FACE DOWN. I SAT AND PUT MY LEGS AROUND HER ASS WHILE RUBBING HER BACK AND EVERYWHERE. I SPENT ALOT OF TIME ON THE ASS MUSCLES. IT WAS GOOD FOR BOTH OF US.

 END THE NIGHT WITH SOME APPLE AS THE PUP WATCHED.....VERY AWKWARD AND TOTALLY DISRUPTED MY CONCENTRATION.

  SATURDAY     11 - 28 - 20

 FACEBOOK MARKET PLACE STRIKES AGAIN.

 I STARTED LOOKING FOR A DRESSER FOR OUR YOUNGEST. I FOUND AT LEAST TEN I LIKED AND 3 OUR KID LIKED. I CONTACTED ALL OF THEM. TWO SOLD AND ONE IS REMAINING. WE WILL SEE TOMORROW BUT IT LOOKS GOOD.

  ALSO , I FOUND A PRETTY COOL SMALL DRESSER WITH A SEASHORE ART DELCO SCENE PAINTED ON THE FRONT. THE WOMAN WAS ASKING $10. I OFFERED $5 AND SHE ACCEPTED. WHEELS TAKES A SHORT RIDE WITH ME AND WE ARRIVE. THEY HAD THE SMALL DRESSER AND  A COOL SEASHORE PAINTING WITH SHUTTER WINGS ON IT READY AT THE CURB FOR US. THE WOMAN SAID WE CAN HAVE BOTH FOR FREE.....MERRY CHRISTMAS. SHE WAS SO NICE.

 DRIVING HOME WE CALL A COUSIN. IT IS ALWAYS FUN TO MAKE HIM LAUGH.

 AT HOME I USE BLUE PAINTERS TAPE AND PAINT THE SMALL DRESSER WHITE. IT CAME OUT REALLY NICE. THE ARTWORK PAINTING OUR YOUNGEST WILL RE-DO WITH HER OWN PERSONAL PAINTING. BOTH WILL GO TO THE CONDO IN NORTH WILDWOOD.

 WE ALLOW OUR RENTERS AT THE MOUNTAIN HOUSE TO STAY ANOTHER DAY. THEY ASKED FOR THURSDAY TO SATURDAY FOR $600. WE ALLOWED THEM TO COME IN WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON AND NOW STAYING UNTIL LATE SUND............NOT A BAD DEAL WEDNESDAY TO SUNDAY NOW. I BELIEVE IN KARMA AND I SURE COULD USE IT SO MAYBE HELPING A FAMILY OUT WILL HELP ME TOO.

  WHEELS GOES FOR A WALK WITH A FRIEND.

 MY YOUNGEST AND I TAKE MY MOTORCYCLE TO THE NAIL. I TAKE THE BACK WAY BECAUSE OUR BRIDGE IS CLOSED FOR A MONTH. MY BIKE STALLS AND I THINK I AM OUT OF GAS. I TURN ON MY RESERVE AND GET BACK HOME. I WAS ONLY 10 BLOCKS AWAY. I ADD SOME GAS AND WE RE-RIDE TO THE NAIL.

 AT THE NAIL WE MEET A FRIEND / REALTOR. THE PROCESS OF SELLING THE NAIL IS MOVING. THE OTHER ROAD IS A FUND RAISER. THAT PROCESS HAS NOT STARTED YET.

 I ALSO MEET A BAND MEMBER AND GIVE HIM & HIS SON A DRUM KIT WE HAD STORED IN THE BATHROOM / STORAGE AREA.

 WE RIDE HOME AND IT IS BEAUTIFUL OUTSIDE.

 AT HOME WE SWITCH TO THE VAN. THE PUP FLIES OUT OF THE HOUSE AND LEAPS INTO THE VAN. I GUESS SHE IS COMING WITH US.

 WE ARRIVE AT THE FRIENDS' HOUSE AND MAZE GOES NUTS SEEING THEIR DOG. SO.....PUPPY TIME. THE FRIEND CLOSES THEIR DRIVEWAY GATE AND THE 2 DOGS PLAY FOR ABOUT 20 MINUTES.......IT WAS HILARIOUS. I GOT TO TALK TO TWO OF THE FRIENDS WHICH WAS VEYR NICE. THEY ARE GROWING UP WAY TOO FAST.

 BACK HOME WHEELS AND OUR FRIEND ARE CHILLING AT THE KITCHEN TABLE. I SAY , " IT'S A BEAUTIFUL NIGHT WHY DON'T I START A FIRE PIT ? " THE FRIEND REPLIES , " I'M ONLY GOING TO STAY 45 MINUTES. " WE HAVE SOME DRINKS AND SNACKS.

 3 1/2 HOURS LATER WE SAY GOODBYE TO OUR FRIEND. SHE IS SO FUNNY. WE ALSO CALLED ANOTHER FRIEND WHICH WAS FUN TOO. I ALSO SHOWED OUR FIEND THE VIDEOS OF COURTNEY HADWIN.

 WHEELS AND I SETTLE IN AND WATCH 3 EPISODES OF YELLOWSTONE. AGAIN , THEY WERE GOOD BUT NOT OUTSTANDING LIKE I WAS TOLD BY A FAMILY MEMBER.

 YOUNGEST ARRIVES HOME AND PLAYS WITH THE PUP. SHE UPDATES US ON HER STAY WITH HER FRIENDS. THEY MADE SNICK-A-DOODLE COOKIES FOR A 3RD FRIEND AND SURPRISE VISITED HER. THE FRIEND SAID , " YOU MADE MY WEEK ". SHE GAVE ME A HALF OF A COOKIE THOUGH I DID ASK FOR A FULL COOKIE.

 MIKE TYSON VS ROY JONES JR FOUGHT TO A DRAW.  THIS WAS AN 8 ROUND BOUT WITH EACH ROUND BEING 2 MINUTES. THEY WORE BIGGER GLOVES AND JUDGES WERE CELEBRITIES.

 DENVER BRONCOS WILL PLAY TOMORROW WITH ALL 4 QB'S OUT.

 OFF TO BED WHERE THE PUP TOTALLY SPOONED ME. I WOKE UP AROUND 4AM AND SHE HAD ALL 4 PAWS EITHER AGAINST OR OVER MY BODY. IT WAS ADORABLE. THE PUP REALLY KNOWS WHEN I NEEDED SOME WARMTH.

 I VISIT MY 2 AUNTS AND COUSIN IN SOUTH PHILLY. THEY CALLED ME BECAUSE THEIR VACUUM WAS CLOGGED AND NOT WORKING. THEY DID HAVE A 2ND VACUUM BUT NOW THAT WAS CLOGGED TOO. BOTH MY AUNTS START ARGUING OVER THE CLOGGED VACUUMS. MEANWHILE , I AM REMOVING CLUMPS OF DIRT FROM THE TUBES. MY 2 AUNTS CONTINUE TO ARGUE AND IT ESCALATES TO A FULL BLOWN OUT SCUTTLE. THEY ACCUSE EACH OTHER OF NOT LIVING LIFE TO THE FULLEST AND BEING TOO CAUTIOUS. ONE AUNT SAYS TO THE OTHER , " YOU ALWAYS WERE TOO CONSERVATIVE AND NEVER LIBERAL ENOUGH. " THEY SCREAM BACK AND FORTH AND I SAY , " HEY GUYS , I AM GOING TO LEAVE IF WE CAN'T PLAY NICE. " THEY BOTH GIGGLE..................dream ends.
