What did you accomplish this weekend. I did some stuff on the checklist.

     This weekend has come and almost gone. I sit here writing a blog posting as I get closer to my 1 year blogging anniversary. I have had a lot of things happen this year and it will be good to reflect on what I have wrote and relive the past some. Well this weekend has been productive. Saturday I managed to sleep in til 10 am. That felt good. I got up and had the family put on our Saturday best and we headed down to the gun show. I was quite disappointed at the selection of goods they had on display. Didn't buy anything beside a 20 oz Coke, so it may be awhile before I attend again.

    Well after we got home, I commenced to pressure washing our driveway and sidewalk to the front door. I have never done it so I have around 7 yrs of dirt laying around. Got that accomplished and started on our privacy fence. Stopped around 5pm to cook dinner on the grill and settled in for some preseason football and adult beverages. Yes, I watch football, if you don't like that well go watch you IDOL or DANCING with the "F"ing stars. I have been an athlete most of my life, I wont give it up. At 42 years old, I will still challenge anybody to a foot race, anytime. Yes, I can still move pretty good. Also BS'd with Stephen via text last night for a while about numerous topics ranging from A-Z.

    Today I was able to sleep in til 11am, and it felt good. I managed to start on my LAST COLLEGE PAPER in my undergrad degree program, did I fail to mention LAST!!!!!! paper. The topic for this paper is California's Proposition 13 versus the 2008 Florida Constitutional Amendment for property taxes, fun stuff huh? Well I managed to throw 650 words out of 1000 on the computer and will finish tomorrow.

    After I finished that, I took NW with me and went to our local auto parts store to purchase gear oil, RTV gasket maker, and Friction additive for JUGM's Jeep Cherokee rear differential. While there, I BS'd with a neighbor who has a part-time job there and whom will be retiring from the Navy next month so I passed along some info to him on the retirement process. Got home and started working on the Cherokee and knocked in out within an hour. Got cleaned up, took for a test drive then grill some pork chops on the grill.

    So I would rate my weekend to be a success, better than being at sea. It also feels good that I am begining to have more time to jump online and update my blog. Til the next posting, have a great and safe week.
