Woke up this morning around 7am and ran out to check the BBQ Pit as the winds and temps on NYE were not exactly kind. I put on nearly 20# of Shoulder at around 9 pm last night, the temps were all over the place but seemed to settle down by 1am, went to sleep … More 2020 Is Here. So Now What?
“Just do The Right Thing.” “Make Good Choices.” ”Be a good person.” My kids hear these phrases often from Ali and I. Sometimes so much that they usually just leave the room when I get on my soapbox, so then I just talk louder. I sometimes get tired of saying it and often I feel … More Constant Improvement
For those who somehow read this on what seems to be an biannual basis, I must make the obligtaory statement about how its been a while since I last posted something to this blog. So, here it is. Its been a while. There. Done. I am currently sitting at home on this second day of … More Double Digits and Then Some….
April 2018 was my last posting to this Blog. Yep. Lots of things have occurred since then, lots of good things too. Some of them I don’t care to put out there, not that anyone really pays attention. However, once the info, photos and content slips into the cosmos that is the internet it’s there … More What’s New Buckaroo?

The back door to the house is swollen and wont open right much to the delight of the dog, Bowl Games on TV today and we have a pond hockey tournament to watch from our porch at 1pm. 2018 is starting off in the right direction minus the cold. … More Winter Break, Tires and House Things
It’s New Years Eve. Right now. Tonight. 2017 for what its worth was a shit year and I am glad it is over. Finally. It seemed to ramble on like a bad odor. Drunkenly ambling along in the background of life until a few good days start to string together and the positive seems plausible. … More Rounding Out One Shitty Year
It has been almost 8 months since my last posting here and honestly there has been so much it’s almost hard to keep up. The time I can donate to at minimum writing anything down much less attempt to put together a cohesive thought is getting more and more infrequent. This ironically that shadows my … More The Back Half of 2017
Yea. Boo For You. This phrase has become a staple in our house when Max wants to voice his displeasure with a pretty much anything. Boo for me for not keeping this thing going over the last 6 months or so. To be honest, it’s been hard to keep up with the new format. It’s … More Boo For You.
Poof. Gone. Done. October has come and disappeared without a trace. This has been a rough few months for reasons that really are out of our control and not to dwell, let’s just say I will be glad when we can slam the door on 2016 and move on. This October marked our 9th anniversary … More October Out Like a Light…
In preparation for the annual cross state haul to the race track, I have been getting old Blue back in shape. These little engines work wonders to produce clean stable power on the small inverter type generators but the issue with ours specifically is that I was a dummy and did not treat the gas … More Portable Power
It was bound to happen sooner or later. Statistically a definite probability. The sickness. With two kids in school now, nose picking, lackluster hand washing and general carelessness….infecting the house with some form of disease is a real struggle early in the school season.
