Long Strange Trip

July 7th, 2012 | 2 Comments | Posted in ramblings

I started this blog five years ago in August because we were getting ready to move from Ohio to California and I thought it would be a good place to dump photos, let people know what was happening and in general keep in touch.

I grabbed WordPress (mainly because I hate Google) and a theme, then another theme, and another, until I found this one and settled on it.  I knew nothing really about the blogging world, except that I had stumbled across Rachael Lucas’ site and was reading her stuff, which led me to other stuff, etc….

Now, I’m running my own business out of a WordPress blog and made my first sale, I have a son, I’m back in New Mexico, and the wife and I are thinking of adding another member to the vast right wing conspiracy.

It really has been a long strange trip.

Matthew and I just got done being sick with vomiting and other body fluids being involved.

Best/worst feeling in the world is waking up in a pool of sweat and knowing your fever has broken and you feel human again.

I blame Jennifer for being sick.  She had it and then I got it.  It must be an internet virus.

Overheard in the Kitchen

Wife: Did you know you can stab yourself with a mop?

Me: No, but if anyone can do that it would be you.

Wife: Thanks, you’re so supportive….  It made my toe bleed.

Me: We need more mop control laws.

Took today off because I can.



I’ll still work on some grips though.  That’s not really work.



Wife says I should have used this one.  Can’t argue with her on it.

We’re Back!

Well, honestly we have been back since last Wednesday but since then I have headed back to work, been working on more grips and enjoying being in a place where the temperature and the humidity are NOT the same number.  To those of you living in the south and in Ohio – I still don’t know how you can go outside in the summer!  YECH!

I learned on our visit that even though I am not in the shape I would like to be I apparently still have the ‘Death Aura’ since a person (who shall be called Dick) who had no problem making threats at my Father-in-Law, screaming insults at my Brother-in-Law, and also threatened my Sister-in-Law’s boyfriend – as well as throwing things at him – had no desire to meet me face to face.

I had to go by where Dick lives to drop off my Mother-in-Law (she is staying with him – long f**ing story) and when I got out of the car he was glaring out the window.  When I looked back at him he dropped the blinds and wouldn’t come out like he did with the others. To be fair, my wife said that I had a very evil grin on my face at the time.

Shame really, I was looking forward to him doing something stupid to make me laugh.

In other news, grip progress was recently slowed to a crawl when my bandsaw blade snapped.  I had purchased a new Bosch blade for it and learned that Bosch apparently means “won’t cut shit” because not only did it try to just burn it’s way through the wood rather than actually CUTTING, the blade then snapped at the weld spot.  So, I have three new ones on order from Amazon that got very good reviews. When they get here I have a lot of work to do.

Matthew is walking now.  He started walking while we were in Ohio so the in-laws got to see him take his first real steps. He is very proud of himself for it and is so excited about all the things he can do, so much so that he doesn’t want to go to sleep and is upstairs raising hell from his crib right now.  Kid is stubborn – must get it from his mom – yeah, that’s it.

And finally, I have learned that my Access-Fu has grown weak over the years.  I am having to do much reading and research to get my database up and running the way I need it.

All this and in 32 days the website launches…. gulp.

Leaving on a Jet Plane…

In just a few hours we will be flying east to Ohio to visit the in-laws for a week.

Not looking forward to the granny gropers at the airport.

If you see a news story about a man going medieval on some TSA jackass after his son or wife was groped and fondled, that will probably be me. Send bail money please.
