2 days off, and most of that has been catching up on sleep.

It kinda sucks wasting a couple of perfect days that way... but at least I no longer feel as though a train has rolled over me repeatedly.

Maybe tomorrow I'll get more done.

I did go to a birthday party for a bit this afternoon... so that's something.

My team is tied for the lead with only the coming week left, so it's fairly simple...win at least six points and we should win the league. The third place team could tie us if they sweep against the fourth place team even if we win six, but six points should win it for us.

Well, my vacation is over, and I'm heading back to work tomorrow. Vacation was pretty lame. Didn't really do anything. I was maxed out on accrued time, though, so it was just going to waste.

Friday, the wife and I went for a day trip the SW of LaCrosse. Went to Niagra caves, a brewery, winery, and then some good Italian in Rochester,MN


The beers at "Toppling Goliath" were all hoppy, which is fine if you like hoppy. Even the Dark Ale was hoppy.

We went to Winneshiek Wildberry Winery and talked to the owner as he watered the plants on the Veranda, and we enjoyed our wine. THere were several Humming bird feeders that attracted a lot of birds. It was nice and relaxing.

Not too bad of a trip. Wife was happy, that is the important part

Here's an amusing story. My cousin is in Chicago on business at the moment, and he brought his family along for a little vacation. He and my aunt took his kids to the pool the other day, and there was another guy there with what looked like his grand kids. The kids all started playing together in the pool, and my aunt went over to the guy and told him his grand kids were great swimmers. The guy told her they were actually his kids, not his grand kids. Kind of an embarrassing moment. Then my cousin looked at the guy and recognized him - it was Rod Stewart. He did some quick phone googling to confirm that Rod Stewart was indeed playing in the area. So my aunt basically went up to Rod Stewart and called him old. This amuses me greatly.

I'm pretty sure I saw him sitting in Boston years ago... like on a park bench at Fanueil Hall. It seemed like he was hoping to get recognized. Perhaps he was just waiting for his wife to get done shopping. Who knows?

Rod Stewart IS old.

Well Rod Stewart is 69, if that isn't old, i hate to think what 70 is like. likely hard to recognize if his hair was wet. heck i didn't know what he looked like off the top of my head until i googled him.

He wasn't swimming. In fact, he was in the pool area wearing a white suit

I guess the kids all had fun, though, because they all went to the park together later.

Feeling blah again today... which is odd, because things are actually starting to look up somewhat.

I'm not swamped at work... in fact things are so slow as to be boring; dad is stable and doing well, and will most likely be discharged to his new permanent place fairly soon; there are no wildly outrageous expenses I have to deal with this second, and several very large checks have gone in to bolster his account, and the trailer will be closed soon, so that will be another one; the weather has been nice, and I've been trying to get a bit of exercise every day and eat somewhat better than my usual... so I should be feeling great about now. And I was... the last couple of days.

This morning I woke up all achy and feeling run down and dehydrated and exhausted and depressed again. Crap. And I can't see any reason for it this time. My stress levels are about as low as they are ever going to be again right now... I shouldn't feel this lousy.

I think I'll see someone to get a work up tomorrow. Skip work if I have to. And that's saying a lot for me, since I usually have to be crawling on the doorstep of death's door in order to seek medical attention.

Yeah... but I've been feeling like this off and on all summer... since all this craziness with work and my father and stepmom began.

I chalked it all up to stress, but maybe there's something else going on.

I've actually had some weirdness going on since before my girlfriend left the country... (I pretty much figured that was stress as well... plus the fact that I'm getting pretty out of shape too...) I've been to the doctors a couple of times, but so far they haven't found anything to treat.

But feeling like crap has gotta stop.

Post Bond--James Bond

New toy.



The modern version of the classic spy gun, the Walther PPK. Called the PPKS, it varies only slightly in design and holds seven rounds (.380 ACP) compared to the old six.

Even better, they're being made in Maine under license of Walther by Smith & Wesson. Made in USA, baby! Woof! Woof! Woof!

Summer league team ended up in 3rd...we only won two points and the third place team won six to move ahead of us for 2nd.

Looking forward to the winter season starting, even if two state tournaments (senior tournament in the fall, open tournament next spring) mean more work.

It is a sad sad world we live in when someone refers to a lethal weapon as a "toy"

Almost as bad the State Patrol officer "Go F*** yourself" who points a rifle at someone taking a video when they ask for his name.

Happy Birthday Wildstar!



I went to the doctor's office and told them my symptoms. They were mostly baffled, so they removed a bunch of blood and money from me, told me to take some Ibuprofen and "it easy", and get some R&R, and sent me on my way.

This is exactly why I don't seek out medical treatment very often. It's seems like a very expensive way for someone new to nod their head and tell you "that sounds like it sucks".

Well... maybe one of the 5 vials of blood they took will be tested in a way that tells them something...

Anyway, I spent the rest of the afternoon catching up on sleep, and if feel well enough tomorrow, my R&R will probably come in the form of a road trip, maybe up the coast to Maine. Get as far as I can, get a room overnight, look around a bit on Sunday, then head back.

Looking at the work calendar, this looks like the last full weekend I'm likely to have off until late December... so if I don't try to do something "vaca-like" this weekend, it's not going to happen until there's snow on the ground again.

Good times...

Coughing like a madman and having very wierd heart rate increases.

It's painful, disorienting and disturbing.

Best thing about my family? FREE NURSE! Since my mom is an RN, I called her, and she said relax, drink lots of fluids, use cough drops to stem the hacking, and do **** nothing for the weekend.

Totally down for that.

K K, I refer to it as a toy because to date, I've only used my guns for going out and having fun at the range. It's a positive activity, useful for blowing off steam and bonding with buddies. If I ever had to use one for unhappy purposes, I suppose that would change my point of view...

Ed and Cracken, I hope you guys get well. And I hope they don't find anything in those vials of blood. I think mystery is better than a known disease.

Happy birfday, Wildster! I'm sending you an imaginary bowling ball composed entirely of good wishes. Not sure how it will bowl, but you'll be the first kid on your block to have one.

nice gun, zoom. got a concealed carry permit? i have one but i don't have a gun yet. still waiting on police academy application to come back, guess i'll have to call them on monday.

@k_k: i feel sorry for you. you'll never understand what it's like having some manly fun.

zoom: i think if you ever had to use it to save your life or others, you'd either: A. rethink of where you go without it, or B. carry it everywhere. idk that's just the opinion of a dysfunctional veteran. still haven't been to the range with my AR15 yet. it ****ing blows not having a car!!!!!!!!

I drove up the coast to Maine, got as far as Kennebunkport, looked around at the crowds of tourists, the traffic everywhere I wanted to go, the parking fees everywhere I wanted to stop... and said "Meh" to the whole thing, and turned right around and drove back.

It was really the long drive I wanted anyway. An extended sightseeing ride always chills me out and clears my mind.

Of course, I had to come home to a huge pile of URGENT!!! bills from Florida...

Sigh...

Watched the new Doctor Who. It didn't suck, but I'm not totally sold on the new guy yet.

Missed the first couple of minutes though... so maybe that could have eased the transition.

FU

I have a little more respect for the lethality of firearms some would concider "toys" . Toys are what I would give a 5 year old to use unsupervised as they saw fit. Guns are NOT toys

and you know nothing of my life, and my thrill of firing off a few clips. I just don't advertise it. and go around showing them off like i am trying to compensate for lacking in a "manly" area like some people and constantly have to prove people how "Manly" you are.

I survived, and won a street fight against 4 other people using nothing but the weapons God gave me on the day I was born (plus 10 years of martial arts training) I don't NEED what you would call toys to protect myself

In related news, I gave my nephew a giant Nerf gun for his sixth birthday the other day. It is awesome.

Missed the first couple of minutes though... so maybe that could have eased the transition.
I grew up watching the old Doctor who. The new stuff isn't the same. More Sci-Fi horror and suspense. A lot of liberty and "Dues Ex Machina" type writing is use in the stories. The Doctor used his intelligence to solve EVERYTHING, he didn't need Psychic powers, or to use guns, or his fists.

And how could the David Tennet doctor survive falls that Killed the Tom Baker Doctor? ARGH!

bad writing ruins it, and makes a mockery of the viewer IMHO

hunting is fun, and so is target shooting. being in the national guard, i would be ****ing pissed if i couldn't own an AR-15. they only give us so much time on the range (if any) during drills, and even then we're basically rushed through it when we get on a lane, so it's nice being able to own a rifle similar to the one we're issued (aside from the burst mode which isn't really ever used unless you're in a firefight) and be able to practice on our own with it.


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

@k_k: i feel sorry for you. you'll never understand what it's like having some manly fun.

zoom: i think if you ever had to use it to save your life or others, you'd either: A. rethink of where you go without it, or B. carry it everywhere. idk that's just the opinion of a dysfunctional veteran. still haven't been to the range with my AR15 yet. it ****ing blows not having a car!!!!!!!!
I have thought about getting a conceal carry permit. I live in a rough neighborhood, come home late at night...and the PPK is the best gun ever for the job. Reason why not? Peaceful good intentions usually carry the day in most circumstances, thank you very much.

I'm sure K K has had plenty of manly fun shooting with the guys, and equally sure that he has reasons for feeling the way he does. Since we are all buds here, we should just leave it alone in typical manly fashion.

Going out shooting with friends tomorrow. Been awhile; all work and no play. Wish you were here, R15...and maybe even K K would like to shoot a few rounds...

K_K, I'm sorry for being an ass to you, you do have the right to express your opinion even if I don't agree with it.

I'm going hiking sometime today, playing TOR til I leave for that, then more when I get home. Anybody's welcome to join me.....Harbinger server, Empire!

Took a longish walk in the state park. Lots of trees. Almost no people.

It was nice and peaceful and quiet... perfect for what I needed today.

Next time I go there I have to start earlier though... give myself more time to look around before dark, and to beat the skeeters before they really start to swarm.
