19 posts in this topic

Hit the big 44 yesterday and celebrated at La Pub last night. Our game in Floyd got to the bottom of the 2nd innning with our team ahead 5-2 with runners on 1st and 2nd with no outs when mother nature blasted us with heavy rains, wind and lightning. Had a good time at the bar last night with the guys and there girl friends. Shots and peers were flowing and the pizza was great as usual. Working the next 4 days straight umpiring. Catch and release a few for me guys....

Thanks guys! Should be a Grampa here in a couple of weeks..

Was getting ready to go to work and Amanda noticed our cat of 17 years is not acting right, called her to take her medication and she's not getting up. If she's still there at lunch I'll have to take her to the vet... Yep were all getting older...

We buried our 17 yr. old cat Corsica Saturday morning right next to Kiki and Precious.

Todd things were crazy this weekend, worked 4 games this weekend and my scheduler wanted to know if I could work a 5th game earlier on Father's Day, my butt's dragging but I have lost a few pounds with the work as of late, which I guess is a good thing.

Working Men's fast-pitch tonight in Prospect, playing in Floyd Tuesday, umpiring in Utica Wednesday, Rome Thursday, off for Amanda's dance in Camden Friday night and Saturday and working 2 games Sunday night. That will be 32 games already for the month on June and we still will have a week plus left to be scheduled, crazy buzy crazy

She lived a long life and died painlessly in her sleep. Rosa picked her up from a "Free Kitten add in the paper" for me when we started dating. Just went through my divorce and was awaiting a judges decision on custody of my kids, a long couple of months, my most vivid memory I have of her was at about 2 years old she got into the closet and decided to bat around a rapala I had on a long rod and got a treble stuck in her lip and the another treble in her back paw. Now think about that ...Lip and back paw, wish I had a digital then... I did the surgery myself and did a fantastic job. She will be missed, thanks guys..

Did my first Men's fast-pitch game last night and it was pretty easy., looking forward to the next.

Todd - Rosa said you called... I'll give you a jingle after work

Tim, sorry to hear about your cat also. We have 5 cats, 2 dogs and a horse so I certainly know what it's like to be attached to animals and it's never easy losing a valued furry friend frown

Tim, sorry about the cat. Saying "the cat" does not give it the credit it deserved. Takes a cat owner to appreciate the nuance of owning one. They are actually more dependent than a dog on their owners. My 15 year old goes in for his annual lion cut next week. He's [PoorWordUsage]'d for a couple of days but then thinks he's the bomb when he patrols the back fence. I can't imagine the fun you went through in the surgery room.

Tim,

The loss of a pet always hurts, but the memories temper it some, I've found. Just the same, I am sorry to hear of your loss.

As far as the age thing goes, ever hear the Jerry Reed song about yellow teeth? It's a good laugh!! After the last 2 wks weather, some remodeling, helping to build a wooden guide boat and stading in cold streams, I'm 45 feeling like 95. Still, I can't complain, if I do, it'll likely get worse! lol

Thanks Ray.. Guys I apologize for not being very outdoorsy the last couple of months. Besides dance in Camden this weekend I volunteered and umpired the Rome Tourney as well Saturday and Sunday, did 7 games total for the benefit and worked two games last night and didn't get home till 11 p.m. luckily I found an hour to get the grass cut before the rain hit.. Todd I'll get it together soon when things wind down. Amanda has practice this week M-W-F 4:30 to 6 p.m. and I have a Men's Fastpitch game to umpire tonight at 8:15..

Tim, after this week the pontoon will be in the water (have to take it in to get a seat repaired). Any time you want to make a quick run let me know. I can’t guarantee fish like Thunder or Chef, but I’ll give it heck!

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
