Happy 237th, USMC!

November 10th, 2012 · No Comments

Happy Birthday to some of the best peeps with whom I’ve had the privilege to work, or blog, and/or drink!!! I’ll raise a toast to you all… and then probably another few. You know… an alcohol double tap.
Semper Fi, brothers and sisters!

Kettlebell

May 20th, 2012 · 2 Comments

Last fall, I finished P90X. I was pretty impressed with the results. Fitness and health were both vastly improved. Shortly afterward, I pulled a hamstring, and it screwed up my workouts. I kept active, but no real pushing of myself. Ended up gaining some weight back, and feeling out of shape. I decided to start […]

Yo, Fat Guy…

December 24th, 2010 · 5 Comments

For the first time in too many years, I actually did send out some Christmas cards. Not as many as I’d like, though… turned out to be a larger project than I had anticipated.
A few months ago, I finally stooped to buying some readers. Yeah, farkin’ READING GLASSES. The corker? When I was trying to […]

Dead Puppies

December 1st, 2010 · 3 Comments

The past couple of days at work have been individual meetings with management, discussing wage “adjustments”, and future plans for each employee. It was brought to our attention, long before this week, that not everyone would get a raise. Without a word being said, you could tell who made out, and who was left out. […]

Happy Birthday, Marines!

November 10th, 2010 · 3 Comments

November 10, 1775. The official birth date of the United States Marine Corps. MY Marine Corps, with this year marking 235 years of ass kickery.
Of course, you must tip a drink with me to celebrate, but another thing I ask is that you consider donating to Valour-IT, specifically on behalf of Team Marine.
Something that […]

A Reunion

June 29th, 2010 · 4 Comments

A few of us are planning a little get together, a reunion of 2nd LAI/LAR, Bco, in Vegas. Emails and comments back and forth have been entertaining, with my favorite quote, so far, being, “The good news is my wife works at the jail. No problems there!!!”
This should be a blast…

Milestones

May 16th, 2010 · 5 Comments

My sister just turned 40 yesterday. I got to talk to her for quite a while, and came away from that phone call chuckling.
40 has always seemed a big deal to me. When I was home last fall, my brother and I were talking, and I found that he had many of the same thoughts […]

Mindset

June 22nd, 2009 · 7 Comments

I know you folks are dying to know how the running is going, or if I’m even doing it at all… I KNOW it.  Well, it’s still going. I’ve now switched to running on a treadmill, rather than running down the streets. This may have hurt me…
Now, I see the numbers, and I’m doing the […]

Spouting Off

June 17th, 2009 · 10 Comments

Holy cow… it’s been a while, eh? Hadn’t realized how long I’ve neglected you guys. Fret not, most is well, but there are a few frustrations which have been keeping me quiet.  Some even at work…
Showed my ziplock baggie full of intelligence today. I educated the big boss in the use of a certain word, […]

Attempt No. 2

May 13th, 2009 · 10 Comments

Well, there were no reports of seismic activity on the Northwest side of Fresberg, on Monday, so I decided to try again.
Got over half of the two miles in as running… about a mile and a quarter.
Now to manage to run for over a half mile without losing chow…

Running

May 11th, 2009 · 3 Comments

The young, the guilty, and total nutjobs… that’s who running was made for.
Woke up early, stepped outside, and realized “This is perfect for running…” And so I laced up the Brooks, and did just that, hoping to cover two miles, but with a goal of running just one. If I hit 3/4, I’m lucky.
Man… I […]

Riding

May 10th, 2009 · 2 Comments

Yesterday, a couple of guys from work and I went for a ride on our bikes. Starting out at 06:30, I didn’t get back to Fresno until after 19:30. Long day, but did it fly by…

Almost

May 8th, 2009 · 2 Comments

The past week’s mornings have been incredible. High 50’s, low 60’s, light breeze, clean air… and today is no exception.
I’ve got an urge to tie on the Brooks and take off down the road…. almost wish I believed in running. Almost.
I’ll just sit here and reminisce  about the early morning runs back in the day. […]

Phordee

One of my better friends, my concert partner is one of those that I miss the most. I’ve been to one concert since I’ve been here, and while it was a blast, it wasn’t the same. At all.
Concert Dude is also father to two of the coolest kids I know… nephews of mine, they be. […]

Engineers

April 14th, 2009 · 34 Comments

?
I don’t blog much about work… mostly. Occasionally, I may mention something, but obviously it’s not too much.
I wish I could.  Damn, do I wish I could…
I’ll just say this: Someday, when I grow up and get big, I’m going to be an engineer, so I can look down my nose at those folks […]

Double Shift

April 2nd, 2009 · 7 Comments

I’m heading home for the weekend. HOME, home…
‘Tis my aunt and uncle’s 50th anniversary celebration, and since they don’t seem to roll around too often (anniversaries, not my aunt and uncle…), I figured I’d head home for it.
I should arrive in Beloit at about 1:30 am. Tomorrow? There in Fritz’s will I sitzes… starting at […]

Cranial Placement

March 16th, 2009 · 6 Comments

Greetings from this corner of the bar. Yeah. I’m still here… just sitting in the shadows. Watching. And battling something akin to writer’s block.
It’s not like I’ve nothing to say, nor the words to express those thoughts. It’s a matter of getting the words to flow to the keyboard. It ain’t working too well.
It […]

Waiting…

February 23rd, 2009 · 15 Comments

Last Friday, the cowering one and I had a talk. He’s been okay, and hasn’t done the cowering thing lately, so I began to think perhaps he was comfortable, finally.
Dude’s been working overtime lately. Or perhaps not… as I type, he is sitting outside in his car, not realizing that I saw him. Saw him […]

Roommates

February 16th, 2009 · 10 Comments

The weekend closes, and week 2 of the great social experiment known as “Joe’s Apartment” begins.
Roommates. Two of them, though one won’t be back for a couple of weeks. And no, I didn’t have anything to do with his leave.
“WTF,” you’re asking… I can hear you.
Nice guy, I am. Situations at work have led to […]
