Two Years After

Spelling my thoughts out on this page always has been more for me than anyone else. As the years have gone on, these pages have slowly morphed into somewhat of bit of therapeutic relief and often allows for a bit of self-reflection. It’s been two years since my last blurb and as we all know…

2020 Is Here. So Now What?

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…

Constant Improvement

“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…

Double Digits and Then Some….

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…

What’s New Buckaroo?

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…

What Now?

As things have a habit of doing in life, details slip away in the mind until out of nowhere, a  subconscious firing of electrons in your brain magically string together to form a memory or thought that will totally steer your day in a different direction. It can either be a good or a bad…

Rounding Out One Shitty Year

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….

Boo For You.

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…

October Out Like a Light…

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…

Portable Power

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…

New Town Shire Lane Pool

Labor Day. A time to be thankful for all the men and women who gave us the weekend, 40 hour work week, overtime pay, and many other things that keep us out of third world status. Labor day weekend also signifies the closing of the pools in New Town. Before kids, we did not utilize…

A Week of Not Much…

This week felt like most others and went by without incident. We all however seemed to pick up where we left off the school year….with colds. On Monday Max had to stay home from school because of it and he has now rebounded nicely. As for the rest of us it took the majority of…
