Please don't read this

Oh, OK. It is Friday night. Grandkids spending the night. They are tucked in and sound asleep. Beautiful little beings . Took 'em out ice skating tonight. They loved it.

Lulu requested blueberry pancakes for dinner.......and that is what we had....with some bacon, milk, ice water. $4.99 for 24 ounce container of fresh blueberries at Costco. Good value.

I have 4 days off this week. Taking a paid holiday for my Saturday night shift.......hope they can do without me for one night. No one to pick up one piece of litter. I'll pick up two the next night. It is not that hard to bend over and pick up a piece of litter. Unless it's blowing about 35.....then you have to bend over and run at the same time. Not easy. But it can be done. Blowin' 50? Forget it.

How about them Packers! Who cares. We love our Sonics. Really weird.....Sonics play all their home games in Oklahoma City now. That is mind 'altering' blowing! Or just simply mind blowing. Will someone please tell me whats going on.

Raining today in the Seattle area. We do have outstanding blue skies above the cloud cover, and great sunsets. Who needs Nantucket shambucket. Do not vacation here. You will be not like it.

Do not ride our ferry boats. Do not look at Mt. Rainer. Do not go to Pike place Market. And, do not look at people that live here. If you do, you will be barked at. Yes, like a dog bark.

How about them Steelers. They lost. Ho Hum. Next.

Hey.....going to the Nordic museum in Ballard on the 12th. Should be interesting and all. I'll probably be bored after 10 minutes.....I'll be looking for a TV somewhere. Love TV. Survivor.

Judge Judy. The Ellen Degeneres Show. Natgeo.

Got my degree from UW in Urban Planning in 1974 and went directly to Alaska to fish on a 125 foot shrimper. Scary job. Spent alot of time in Sand Point Alaska. Now that's where you want to vacation. Yes sir!

Talk to you all later. Going out to a dive of a tavern to watch my co-worker play punk rock. He's the drummer. 43 years old. Get a life! Yup....7-up here I come. Adios.

Come in, I'll put on a pot of Bourbon

That title is out of a Shirley McClain movie. When she says that line in the movie it is hilarious. "Come in, I'll put on a pot of Bourbon"....even us crazy non drinkers can enjoy that line.

Hey....Raining here in Seattle. What else is new? The NFL should award the Superbowl to Seattle.....mid 40' that new Dallas setup all over the place.....5 inches of snow. Wow.

3rd grandchild Ila due this May. Lulu's little sister. Poor Levi......dealing with 2 sisters. I'm puttin' my foot down when those 2 gals dress up Levi as one of their dolls.....aint happnin'..

Got a nice going away hug from a young lady that just completed 28 days of treatment for heroin addiction. I see miracles every day. Going back to day would never think it was the same person. Very emotional. Her goodbye was 'see you in 18 months Tom'......that is my employers time line for any patients to come back and apply for work at the treatment center I work at. I would guess about 95% of our staff where I work are recovering addicts. Very powerful. Very amazing. Gods work on lucky I am.

September 7th of 2010.....right knee replaced. Right knee doing great. Left knee jealous. Half my body dances every day......never did that before. Great surgeon. Great staff. Great Great Great, just Great.

Pittsburgh or Green Bay? Who cares.

Superbowl commercials? Who doesn't care.

Getting mentally ready to start gardening. In fact, I'm heading out to the garage to dust off my weed favorite tool.

Laundry. I love using too much soap for too little clothes.......with a splash of really good smelling baby shampoo that is normally used on Arthur and Lucy.

Still doing the lights and darks together.....Never done it any other way. Oh well.

I remember my first bike. Back in the 50's. Lots of black and white paint, with lots of chrome. Bike helmets were not invented at that time. Or cell phones. Or computers. Or color TV. Or flat screen TV. No imagination back then I guess.....people never thought out of the box.

Pittsburgh or Green Bay. Seahawks could beat them both hands down on consecutive days. Only NFL city where fans created an earthquake. Damn impressive. Don't believe me? Look it up.

Singing in the shower. I imagine most of you peoples do that. I don't. Can't sing and shower at the same time. Anyone have some gum out there? I'm going for a walk.

Remember all of you weather rains all the time in Seattle. Miserable place to live....and a crappy place to vacation.

My wife was on TV today.....she was stunning....something about a pig getting hit by a car. At the Pike Place Market. Home of the first Starbucks. Where the pigs are not real. They are huge and they are bronze. $56 worth of Alaska salmon in our refrigerator. Superbowl commercials meal. Love those Clydesdales. Are they real when they talk?

Take care Pal. tomg
