Hey Guys, glad to see you guys checking in, Been pretty busy helping my son renovate his new (old) house. He's lives within walking distance so Pop-Pop gets to see the granddaughters a lot, and take them to town pool. But the real news is Are You Ready for some Football? Harry Jets vs Giants tonight at MET life. Our first chance to get a look at Danny Jones QB. Its only preseason but its a night out. Taking oldest granddaughter (age 5) to game, she thinks she's a cheerleader, LOL  Pray for the Victims of mass shootings

Thanks Shannon, garbage day tomorrow. Now I just have to figure out whether it is yard waste day or trash/recycle day.

I need to find "Fun-Dave". Fun-Dave would put a bunch of bullet holes in the garbage cans and go fishing. But n--o--o--o--o--o!!! I'm not allowed to hang out with Fun-Dave. He's trouble!!

I do believe it is Tuesday David I also am having a hard time knowing which day it is.  And a nap does sound pretty good..

I'm waist deep in several projects and it seems like the more I do, the more there is to do. There just aren't enough hours in a day anymore. Speaking of day, which one is it? Have I had my nap yet?

Joe, I saw him and the Destroyers at a casino here in Tacoma about two years ago. He sure does have fun during his concerts! Wore us out. We were sitting right in front of the stage 3 rows back in the VIP section. Almost got thrown out early because my buddy kept jumping up on his seat and yelling "GET A HAIRCUT!!!". I thought he had flipped his lid, especially after being warned twice. But then they finally played "Get a Haircut", which I didn't know was a song.

Finally left during the 5th encore to beat the traffic. Had to walk over a mile to get to the car and we could still hear them rocking as we drove away.
