Phone Photo Dump

I took these last week to share with you.  Nothing spectacular, but I love a pretty sunrise/sunset.

This was taken at the red light while I was waiting to turn to go to the gym.  Usually, it's still dark out when I go to the gym, but I was running a bit behind on this morning.  You can barely see the Planet Fitness sign, but it's behind the White Castle sign.  Yep, there's a White Castle next to my gym.  Thank God I've kept from giving into the temptation!
On Monday, my niece and I went out together for lunch.  Well, lunch in my book, breakfast for her, since she woke up at 11, then called to see if we could "go to breakfast."  Anyway, I  just HAD to take a picture of this sign in front of the fire station that's down the street from her house.  I think I've mentioned before that we've been having a "snow drought" around here.  We broke all kinds of record this year for going so long without any snowfall here.
Well, now it's Wednesday.  Look what's FINALLY happening around here!!!
(This is really crappy video.  I don't know why I always let you guys see my white trash yard, either.)

Yes, Buster is still alive!!! I'll bet some of you were wondering, but afraid to ask.  This is the view out my living room window.  I've been watching for a couple hours now as the beautiful snow swirls outside my kitchen window.  I feel like I'm in a snow globe!!  It's making me VERY happy.  I could use a little happy around here right now.

22 years ago today...

...this happened.

It's been a hell of a ride since then.  I'm tightening my seat belt in anticipation of what our future holds.

(Maybe I should have told Magnum to buy me a new scale for our anniversary, cuz I think mine is broken.  I'm down another 2lbs this morning.  How is that even possible?  Maybe my body FINALLY realizes that I've been bustin' my ass at the gym for 2 hours a day for the past 5 weeks!)

Look.  Up there.  The ticker.



Ok, that's all I've got for today.  I'm too excited to write about anything else.

**6:03 am 1/18/13**
Just did my morning weigh-in before heading to the gym, and now it's 52!!  HOLY CRAP!

Oh, yeah!!

Shocked myself again today!

I know I've been a bit wrapped up in my other blog lately, but I figure I should embrace the enthusiasm while I have it, right? 

But, I haven't forgotten about my Bloggy Buddies, I swear.  I still think about things I want to write about during the day, but sadly, my old brain usually forgets about them by the time I sit down to type.

 I took a couple pictures the other day for you guys, though.  Sorry it took a couple days to remember that!

Over the weekend, it was in the high 50s around here.  I veritable heat wave!!  Then, in less than 24 hours time, the temps plummeted.  When I left to go to the gym Monday (or was it Sunday?!) this is what my windshield looked like:

 I thought I had taken a picture of my thermometer, showing that is was 14 degrees that morning.  I had to pull out a hoodie to wear over my T-shirt!
 I leave my water bottle in the car after the gym, so I won't forget it, and the darn thing was frozen solid!!
My brother had Monkey on Saturday.  We were all at Grandma and Grandpa's house, hanging out.  Here's just a random picture of her and Grandma reading a book.  (She's got her favorite boots on!)
Ok, I know this is the lamest post ever.  But, I don't care, I'm still flying high thanks to today's numbers.  Just be happy for me, damn it! =)

I'm watching my favorite daytime news channel, WGN, and they're doing a cooking segment.  The man is making some kind of braised meat.  What caught my ear is that one of the ingredients is ONE CUP OF TEQUILA.  Say whaaaa?!  YUM!!!  I'm gonna look that recipe up right now!  You can do if you click on this link for WGN.  You're welcome. =)

I don't know...

...what the hell I'm doing here lately.  I've been "sharing" more over at the other place, even though I had only intended to share my numbers.  What the hell?  If you're interested, click here

...I know I haven't been around.  But, if anyone gives a crap, I've been over here.

Email of the Day

Of course, my Daddy sent this.  They're oldies, but goodies.  I know I haven't been around here much lately, but I HAVE been posting on my other blog every day, just in case you're interested. =)
I just took a leaflet out of my mailbox, informing me that I can have sex at 79.
I'm so happy, because I live at number 85.
So it's not too far to walk home afterwards.
And it's the same side of the street.
I don't even have to cross the road!
Answering machine message,
"I am not available right now,
but thank you for caring enough to call.
I am making some changes in my life.
Please leave a message after the beep.
If I do not return your call,
you are one of the changes."
Aspire to inspire before you expire.
My wife and I had words, but I didn't get to use mine.
Frustration is trying to find your glasses without your glasses.
Blessed are those who can give without remembering
and take without forgetting.
The irony of life is that,
by the time you're old enough to know your way around,
you're not going anywhere.
God made man before woman so as to give him time
to think of an answer for her first question.
I was always taught to respect my elders,
but it keeps getting harder to find one.
Every morning is the dawn of a new error.
The quote of the month is by Jay Leno:
"With hurricanes, tornados, fires out of control, mud slides, flooding,
severe thunderstorms tearing up the country from one end to another,
and with the threat of bird flu and terrorist attacks,
are we sure this is a good time to take God out of the
Pledge of Allegiance?"
