Changes... Rough couple of weeks...

There is always something ging on in my life and I don't  always put it all out there, but now I am getting to a point that I think I can.  Instead of posting tons of pictures and writing a novel, I think I am going to start just making videos... like I did tonight... I will still include pictures outside the video paramaters, but I think it easier for me to speak my mind or basically ramble... which sometimes leads me to forget a few things, like mentioning how much I love my Mom in the video... and also, I know you all will likely not watch the whole thing... I will start making them shorter, but tonight, I had a lot that has been building up and a lot of changes going on and coming about...  From here on out, will keep it short and sweet... but just grab a cup of coffee or a beverage of your choice and watch to see what is going on in my life right now... it will help out when I make the shorter videos in the future...  Thank you all for your support for over 10 years!!!

History... the SOUTH

Howdy Y'all... I spent sometime downtown today and just had to take selfies.


Me in front of the Capitol
Me pointing at the Capitol...

Such great work by Thomas Jefferson. 

The Seal of the Commonwealth of Virginia.


TTFN!!

Going down...

GOOOOOOOOD MORNING!!!!!!

I weigh in every morning at the same time and this morning, imagin my surprise when I saw this on the scale... (yes, I need a pedi)

So this morning I took Nanook for her first walk outside the yard on the leash and she did really well... I was surprised... I think she was just happy to get out of the backyard... she came from puppy farm and has been a bit shy about the whole leash thing...I think she will be fine...

On the walk.. I look like one of those artist sketches on Law&Order

...and what is a walk with out stopping at fire hydrant along the way...

I did also walk Zeal... she was a bit hyper so I did not get pics of her, but had to walk them separately as the two of them would have dragged my ass all over the place.. in time I will have them both go out at same time...

Happy Thursday!! TTFN...

Random Things

I hope everyone is doing well... I am hanging in there... busy as hell... so much to and don't know where to start some monrings... I will have some cool announcements coming up soon, so check back often...

The other day while biking, found this beauty of a house, which is literally a stones throw from my house... never knew it was back there after living here for 6 years... I should ride around the neighborhood more often... it is on the National Historic Registry and was once the home of  Douglas Southall Freeman, news paper editor and Pulizter Prize winning  Historian.  Oh, by the way, it is 3 stories with 10,000 sq ft of living space on 1.9 acres of land with a pool and just about anything else you could want. It was sold at auction last year and is currently being remodeled.

The Girls watching daddy work...I moved the single bed into my office to something like a day bed, but apparently it is just an oversized doggie bed now...

CHEEEEEEEZE...

TTFN!

What a day!

I started the early morning (around 7ish) with a bike ride around the neighborhood... finally got my friends bike cleaned up so I hope that I can do this every morning... just need some air in the tires... insert fat joke here...

I had a nice job interview and now there will be changes coming to Stern Insurance soon, so stay tuned... also go to my Facebook Page and like it and leave a nice comment or something...and also go to YELP and leave nice words and like my page.... PLEEEEEEEZE!


This is Southern life...so pretty and peacefull

A little history about the place I was walking through...

and ME!

I did walk about 2 miles this afternoon when the car died, but the beauty of everything around me made it worth it... once I got to my brothers house I did some things, looked for spare key to his other truck and then crashed on sofa watching news... just woke up and my friend Stacy is coming to pick me up and take me home to my girls.... My brother is coming back tomorrow and we will get his car situation taken care of, I  hope...

TTFN

PS- I still want this car... should I do a kickstarter campaign... it is still up for sale... hmmmm

A little update...

Hope everyone is doing well... it has been a busy couple of weeks for me even though I have no internet or phone service at home and my cell phone is all messed up too...arghhh... when it rains it pours.  Hopefully that will all be taken care of soon... until then I am hoping around from friends place to the Continental (who will let me sit in corner and work after lunch rush even though I don't order anything)...

Still pounding out details of divorce, which should finalize on November 1st, but that is up in air now.  Just a bump or two we have to figure out.

Have had a couple of job interviews and actually have another tomorrow. Though I think I may have found one which will start on September 7th.  Just have to do a little training before hand.  YAY!!!

This was my backyard a week ago... everything getting overgrown and grass actually got a lot taller before I was able to cut it...argghh

So I started working on yard during my downtime from internet stuff... mainly got grass cut and then I started on other stuff in yard.


Notice the grass and jungle around the ornimental grass is now tamed and cut.. what you can't see is the portion of fence I had to clear of vines and such... so I am about 1/3 of the way through what I want to do with yard, especially since it is not so hot and humid as before and I do the work in the morning before lunch.
I will post pictures as I work even more on the yard.. kinda redoing the whole land scape in backyard.. just to change it up... as fall moves in, I want to get yard looking good and the porch all cleaned off so I can sit outback and just relax from time to time in the cool fall weather.

I am still looking for a car, so if you know of someone with a car in good condition and know that it does not need any work anytime soon, let me know... for the time being, my sights are set on this one now... great deal, but have to wait for certain things to happen before I can purchase... arghhh

$2500 and it a deal...cross your fingers!!!

Also, today I weighed in at 213.2!!!! YAY!!!
