Have you seen the rings that were presented today to the 2016 World Series Champion Chicago Cubs yet? (Yes, I still like saying that. Even five months later, it's still surreal.)
In a nearby town is a little annual festival known as Ribfest. I used to go to this festival when I lived in this town. Years ago. Back when it really was little.
Knowing what last week's challenge photo was and then hearing people guess sushi really turned my stomach.
Our favorite store from which to buy new shoes for Nathan was a place in town called Geishe Shoes. It was a mom-n-pop, sure, which made it expensive. But they had fantastic model-year-end sales.
Nathan has become a junkie for LEGO Batman blind bag minifigures. He currently has all but one of them after working to earn them via good behavior and improvement in swimming lessons.
Sorry, but I've got nothing today. Instead of leaving you high and dry, I'm giving you a sweet little picture of Nathan with his cousin E at her first birthday party last weekend.
Last night, Katie and I were paring things down on our bookshelf when I found these little gems.
Every day, I am amazed at how quickly time flies. It's already April. Whaaa??
Okay, this isn't really a post about music so much as the equipment you may or may not use to listen to it. Bear with me. If you're not still interested by about paragraph four, I will forgive you for cutting ship and jumping.
I gotta admit that those people who guessed "glue stick," and even more specifically "Elmer's glue stick," made a nice guess. A wrong one, but a nice one.
In the month leading up to us going to the Professional Bull Riding (PBR) event in January, Katie and I tried to find some way to make ourselves more "cowboy friendly."
This last presidential campaign cycle as well as the election and post-inauguration apocalypse have turned friends, coworkers, neighbors, and family against each other in ways I've never seen before. It has resulted in everything from just unfollowing someone on social media to families not speaking to verbal and physical battles. It's really kinda scary that we cannot work through such differences in a more civil way.
I was listening to the most recent episode of the podcast Up & Vanished the other day. In this episode, they were trying to fathom the motivation of a person alleged to have murdered his former teacher, Tara Grinstead, a few years after he had graduated and moved on.
Two weeks ago, it was a TBT post about my Nintendo DS. Now, following that as well as two similar posts from Marty (Post 1 | Post 2), I'm going to post another Throwback Thursday: Video Game Edition featuring my Game Boy Color!
Check me out! I'm actually a couple days ahead of schedule for my March video.
I realize that, at 42 years old, I'm just that... old. Not as old as some, but older than many. And, while 42 may be, according to Douglas Adams, the "Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything," it doesn't mean I really know anything at all.
Based on some of the comments on Facebook to me posting the solution to this challenge photo earlier today, y'all don't know what crema is. What kind of crap coffee do you all drink?
The other day, Katie picked up something new for me to try out, medium roast coffee K-Cups from Trader Joe's.
Just finished Deadpool. Yeah, only took me a year to finally see it.
His National Security Advisor resigned in disgrace.
His first Muslim ban failed miserably.
You remember how I told you that Nathan was obsessed with the soundtrack from Trolls? Well, that obsession transferred to a couple tracks from the film Sing.
Greatest. Movie. Poster. Ever.
When I originally started Tu(n)esday posts five-odd years ago, I did so because Tuesday was the new music release day in the U.S. That changed a year or so ago to Friday to keep it more in line with much of the rest of the music-loving world.
While I was personally reminded of unhatched Gremlin or Alien Xenomorph eggs, last week's challenge photo was actually broccoli.
Before Christmas last year, Katie and I had implemented the good ol' "Why don't you put it on your Christmas list?" method when he wanted something we didn't feel like buying. It actually made him happy to hear that we weren't completely shooting him down and it kept our bank account from revolting against us. And, a vast majority of the time, he'd forget what he wanted anyway so win-win!
The other day, I was watching season 1, episode 7 of Stranger Things when a quote from one of the characters caught my attention.
Check it out, folks!
This is another one of those Throwback Thursdays that's not an old photo so much as a new photo of an old object.
Meet Brittany and Tiffany. They are twin sisters and students at a high school about five miles from where Katie, Nathan, and I live. We didn't know them personally, but yesterday was their birthday. They would have turned 17 years old.
Yes, the Pitchfork Music Festival 2017 roster has been announced and, to me anyway, it seems a bit underwhelming.
As stated everywhere, I'm really disappointed in @lesombre for not taking a guess at this Macro Monday challenge photo. Why?
Not that it has truly bothered me, but Nathan, thus far, has shown zero interest in Star Wars. It's cool, really. It took him a while to develop the will to sit still for a whole movie. Given the choice between sitting down for a movie and running around and actively playing? I'll take activity any day.
Saw Logan tonight with my brother, my dad, my buddy Nate, and his buddy Brian... and a partridge in a pear tree...
Once, a lone sea star
Picked up a Gibson guitar.
And rocked. How he rocked.
We finally went and picked up our pre-order of Moana from the Disney Store today.
