    'Morning all...
    One more work day and I'm out'a here.

    Well..
    For a week that is. For the time being I'm still gainfully(?) employed, but I have accrued enough vacation time to take a bit without hving to pay it back when the ax falls.


    Thanks for all the well wishes about the interview. It went well and said the job will be mine pending background check and drug testing which won't be a problem. It is a temp job right now but the company is difficult to get hired on directly.
    Excellent!!
    May things continue moving forward.


    and for all that is holy someone pop down the liquor store for some Vitamin R, a mid-shelf Bourbon and some frosty ones from Cigar City.
    Done!
    I'll have the entire stash available across the next week down on the coast.
    Drop by and grab your share before I consume it all.


    Top O the Mornin Dads! Long week with a 4 day Europe trip. Back on a plane later today but all good since it’s to the mouse house.

    Norm and Rob, thoughts are with you with the job related challenges.
    Have fun storming the castle.

    And thanks for the thought.
    Have a Dole Whip for me.

    Can you tell her that? She doesn't believe me when I say it.
    She's smarter than you.
    Goes without saying...

    She won't believe this group either. Who would?
    And that is indisputable, as well.

    Good point. But then again, she married me.

    Also an excellent point.
    but then...
    You already know that.

    It's Friday!

    Congrats for graduations, last exams, job interviews, drug tests, trips to Da World. Best of luck to those concerned about their job. Uncertainly is rough.

    It's not been the best week on my finances.
    AC is not working in the minivan (not that surprising since it's 6 years old), appointment at the garage on Tuesday, so I don't know the cost yet but most likely won't be cheap.
    Hot water boiler sprung a leak yesterday so I had the plumbers in today. $943 later I should be good for another 5 years or so. I did get 9 years out of the old one, so shouldn't complain too much I suppose.
    That's on top of the new set of summer tires I put on the van a few weeks ago.
    All this is not helping my Florida vacation fund.
    If I had a mechanical bone in my body I would try to do some of this myself, but I am quite the opposite of Mr. Fix-it.

    I said she was smarter than you... not that she's not able to fall for you tricking her into marriage.

    Wait... so is this a good thing or a bad thing?

    It'll be free! It's just air, isn't it?

    Right. That's it. I'm calling it. Work week over. Everyone out. Last one standing at the Top of the World lounge on Mikey's DVC card (he won't mind) with a Seven Seas Lagoon in their hand gets to go home with Scarlet Witch. But let me tell ya, last time she offered to take a guy home and blow his mind, it didn't work out too well for Vision.

    Have a great weekend fellas.

    Most of Canada was watching and celebrating last night. Good win, but man, basketball really knows how to suck the fun and excitement out of the final minutes of a game.... That was painful.

    Glad to see We The North take the title. I had a few friends who decided to make the last minute trip down to the Bay area to watch the game in the arena, lucky for them! I have different money priorities, but I appreciate solid fandom.

    All the best with job stuff for all.

    Morning, gents.
    Don't mind saying... I'm dead tired.
    Still another 90 minutes to go in the shift, too.
    Sleep is looking reallllllly good right about now.
    On the bright side, got the pool up and running yesterday (and the day before... took a couple days in between work) and sure felt good when I was in it.
    Now just have to finish that deck so I can enjoy both of them. :)
    Hope everyone's weekend is restful and/or alcohol fueled.

    The scariest pool in all of Disney.
    Still... Great view! Is that from your room?

    Sleep first. Pool later. Gotta get the floaty out and a cold drink. Just bought some hard peach ice tea yesterday... sounds like a good place to try it.

    Happy Saturday All.

    Glad high school graduation will only happen once in this household. Apparently it requires the house to be deep cleaned.

    Have a good one.

    Afternoon all. Pickleball this AM was fun, and won 3 matches on the top court. But, some took this way more serious than I.

    Watching Ukraine vs Korea in U20 Cup soccer. Not a huge # of shots on goal, but entertaining nonetheless. Not surprisingly, USA went out early in this tournament as well.

    :rotfl2::rotfl2:
    I wish my torso had that shape, but as you can see from your expert photoshopping skills, it would be a little bit snug.
    Let's not think of that size Jersey on my torso. Not possibly stretchy enough.

    Well..

    Have a good trip. You are doing better than I with all this stuff.

    I can fix a few things, but know my limit. I wouldn't attempt a hot water heater. Get that wrong and it can blow a hole in your roof.

    That's bad.

    Have hated that about basketball. Great action until the game ends in a game of horse and timeouts.

    Woohoo!!

    At long last Hyundai has approved our warranty claim and the parts have been ordered. I can go pick up the rental today and we are back to being a two car family.
    Good news. I'm hoping that if I can survive this next two years and retire, I can hand over my car to my youngest, and I can ride a bicycle around town. Well, not during the cold months.

    You have guests over at the house? Yes, it needs to be clean for strangers and family members you don't like who don't live there. The ones who live there get the carp. I have the same logic in my household.
