Saturday Scavenger Hunt......a Return

It has been a couple of weeks since I have done the hunt, and since I am home this weekend I figured that I would get back into it and do a post. So here we go. This weeks word was "blue" and this is what I have come up with.

Here we have a old "blue" boat.......

And here is the blue skies and water in Bayfield, WI.......

And our blue cooler that got attacked by a bear while we were on vacation. Note the bite mark on said cooler, it was one of about 5 or 6 punctures in the cooler....

And last but not least, some blue tasties!!!!

There you have it. This is what I found for "blue" this week.

Have a good weekend

Long weekend ahead

Well today starts the hellish next week I have going at work. I have to work tonight and Thursday as my normally scheduled days to work. Then I have picked up Friday and Sunday as OT, the back to work Monday and Tuesday for my normal shifts. Not nearly the hours that Father of Five is putting in during the RNC this coming week, but tiring non the less.

Last night we went to T Woman's house and I made dinner for the girls. I do not claim to be a wonderful cook (or even a good one for that matter) but I think I did an alright job. Made garlic chicken, roasted veggies, and couscous. Turned out pretty good, and I think I would make it again. Thanks to T Woman for letting me make a mess of her kitchen. And for the opportunity to cut myself with her sharp assed knives!! Quite the cook I am.

I have decided to post a couple of the pics from the wedding we were at last Saturday. Kris used one of them on her blog, so I will show you some others.

And there you have it. Until next time....when the OT is over.

Wedding fun

This last Saturday we went to a wedding. It was for one of Kris' friends. We had a good time and the location for the wedding was BEAUTIFUL!!! Very scenic and a nice sunny day. I didn't take a whole lot of photos as I was having fun.

Not much else happening this week. Lots of work and OT this week and I should be ready for the time off come next Wednesday. I only have one day off until then.

A Response

This is in response to the "doesn't my hubby look wasted in this picture" post that my lovely wife did.

Wonder why she didn't post this picture?............

Now who looks wasted?!?! AHHHH HA HA HA HA HA!!

In her defense, I totally had my share of the beer that night. And this poor Dwarf had to deal with the aftermath........

As did this Sasquatch. He must have liked the abuse though, because I swear I heard him moan......

Long Time No Talky

Well it has been a while since my last post whilst on vacation. We had lots of fun, and the wife was posting, so I guess I kind of neglected my blog for over a week now. So here it is, the big update.

On vacation Daddy-O, Sco-T, and I all went golfing last Tuesday. We hit the ball and chased it around for 4 hours, and I got some pictures too. Here they are.

Then on Wednesday it rained off and on for the day. KT, Sco-T, Kris, Ellie, and I all went up to Ashland for the day and shopped. We ate good food and had a fun day.

Here is Ellie eating her popcorn.

Here is everybody looking sad that Grandma and Grandpa weren't with us...

We are here..........

Ellie driving the boat..

And then we saw this sunflower field along the way home. There were seriously acres of sunflowers planted along the roadside.

On Thursday Kris, Ellie and I met my mom and sister at a local "petting zoo". The place itself is a lot more dirty than I remember, and since Ellie is scared of her own shadow at times, a zoo where the animals were this close did not really appeal to her.

When Friday came, we all loaded into a pontoon and spent the day on the lake. Here is what I saw.

On Saturday we decided to make the drive to beautiful Bayfield, WI. It is a neat little town rich in nautical history. It is located on the South Shore of Lake Superior and is very scenic. While there we ate some yummy burgers, shopped a bit, went out onto the docks, and even ran into a guy from the RWPD who was there with his wife for their anniversary!! These were the sights from Bayfield.

Well that is about all I have for this time. I am going to be updating my photo and 365 blogs in the next couple of days. I also hope to catch up with all of you and start making some comments on all of your blogs:)

Our vacation so far

So we have been here for 1 day and have had a load of fun already. We have played bean bags, went to the beach, went to the bar, and had some delicious food. What else could you ask for to start a vacation? Here are some of the pictures that have been captured so far.

To say that we are having fun so far would be a understatement. There will be more photos and more blog updates as the week goes on. Also have more pics on my 365 blog of our vacation!!

Firecracker Prank

This is about the funniest thing I have seen in a long while. I laughed pretty good after seeing this.

Life ain't easy when your behind bars.........

Hot and Humid

I see that I have not posted in a long time. To be honest, there has not been much to post about lately. I have been working and when I am not working it has been to damn hot and humid to do anything except stay inside in the air conditioning.

We are going on vacation next week, so we are busy getting packed up and ready this week. Sunday cannot come soon enough!!

Should be lots to post about in the next week, and I should have plenty of new pics to bore you with:)


Saturday Scavenger Hunt done on Wednesday

Wow, I am really late this week. So here we go.

Above photo was taken during a drive through the farm country in our area.

Here is another type of drive.

And thats pretty much what I have.
