I really didn't do much drinking and blowing stuff up like a lot of people might have done this Forth of July weekend, I just had a nice quite 4 days off. Summer here in Nebraska is in full swing, just not as hot as in years past. But anyway I'm over buying fireworks and shooting them off. I prefer to let someone else spend money on things like that. One of the guys in our ham radio club, at our twice monthly breakfasts said he and his Dad shelled over $1500.00 for the bang boom pow. So there was no shortage of free shows to watch. Anyway some of my time off from work I enjoyed the nice weather outside. Like tonight I decided to go for an evening bike ride. Stop and visit with some friends. I got back a little while ago, I must say I worked up quite a sweat, it's not real hot night but very muggy. I took a post ride photo when I got in the house.
|Not exactly proper bike clothes It was a spur of the moment bike ride, just to go out a mile or two. And ended up being about 8 miles. Now I think after the last 4 days off I might be ready to go back to work! I'me still looking for my ideal job, but haven't found it yet.|

|Fez Restaurant & Bar, Phoenix,AZ|
|My Two Hosts With The Most Michael & David Thank You! My First night in town we stopped at nice little bar - restaurant called Fez it's on Portland just off N. Central Ave. And was treated to dinner because it was my birthday the day before. I was informed that a cool front pasted thru Phoenix and the highs have only been in the mid nineties. That's why we had the chance to dine Al fresco also little to no wind.|
|Second Day in AZ- Day Trip Up To Sedona. Well this next week coming up is thankfully going to be a short week. With the July 4th holiday next weekend, my work gives us 2 & 3 July off. So still a four day weekend but there is still Monday looming some where out there to deal with. I wanted to take the whole week off but my boss said no dice, I'm needed at work. Oh well it's nice to be needed I guess.|

Well a lot of things are happening at once this weekend. One it's my birthday Saturday, and tomorrow I leave to visit UrSpo in Arizona. Last month when I put in for vacation, the powers that be wanted even more hours From me at work. I guess to catch up for when I'm gone this next week. It happens before any holidays, work harder in order to get that extra day off. So most of my time was spent just eat, work, sleep, repeat. Not much time that I was ever online, maybe just to get travel info etc. I haven't been blogging much anyway so I kinda think nobody would really know that I was away. This last Saturday I took an out-of-town road trip to Omaha with someone I met a few years back we got to talking and found we had some things and likes in common. His name is Roy and he's about 5 years older than me, a nice enough guy but I don't think we will ever be BFFs.We had lunch at a Korean restaurant and did a little running around town. Checked out the mil. surplus places. I bought another old 50s GE TV off of Ebay the Thursday before. And since it was just North up I-29 I drove up to Sioux City,IA(120 miles) to pick it up. That Saturday I put about 325 miles on my 2003 Suzuki Aerio round trip and all. I had fun, but I think in some places my friend Roy was some what bored. And Sunday I'm going to Arizona, with all my travels I never got to Arizona or New Mexico, and I'll save NM for another trip. One more load of clothes needs to come out of the dryer and I can finish packing. Big travel day tomorrow. Some time ago I sent Spo this cartoon I came across I thought it was funny and I'm sure he did too. When I get back lots of material for blogging to do!

For those of you who may have suspected that I have bats in my belfry, you may be right. I don't know how he/she got in. But I found a bat flying around the ceiling light fixture in the spare room. That's the room where my computer is. I had just got done sending an email to UrSpo. When I noticed a shadow move across the wall. Luckily I was able to isolate the creature by closing the doors and hold it inside without flying through out the whole house. But some how my bat problem got in. After that I called the local cops, they weren't much help. I was informed that unless I had a pet, old person or child they wouldn't send out animal control. The dispatcher suggested I call a bat expert, but they're not on call 24/7 just during the week. I did eventual trap it, about 10 minutes later after getting off the phone with the police and Mr. bat guy's voice mail. I ventured back in the room with a kitchen broom that held said trapped bat. As luck would have it, it landed on the side of a cabinet and I was able to swat it into a waiting cardboard box. I quickly hustled it outside, set the box on the ground. The bat still couldn't get out so I tipped the box on it's side. It crawled out did a few hops on the lawn and flew off some where into the night. Or should I say morning, this all happened about 2:45-3:00 am. Now with any luck I won't see my bat or any of his friends again. I didn't get close to it so I doubt that I contacted hydrophobia.

Her SEVEN page complaint is mostly bible verses and her own opinions. Now I'm no lawyer, but the last I checked we don't live in a theocracy. Some of the attorneys I heard on TV discussing this lawsuit, could not find a legal precedent to bring a case. Nothing in case law or constitutional law, or even the merit of common sense. But then again even Nebraska has no shortage of morans (sic). And here is just another example of one of many. Maybe she'll get what Anita Bryant got, hit in the face with a creamie pie........Bwhahaha! I said creamie pie. As Dwayne the Cajun would say: so it goes.

Well I guess it's been awhile since another blog post. Mostly just trying to get though winter. Starting back at work after a two week break (trial run at being retired) from before Christmas to after New Years. I spent most of January being sick in one form or another. And now for the past several weeks on 10-12 hour days overtime. But one thing I can say about my job. It pays for the two habits I've come to enjoy, eating and sleeping indoors. LOL. Now it's just been cold and colder so not doing much of any thing. I been wanting to work out more maybe go to our town's indoor pool and swim some laps. More than a few of you saw me in my speedo at Bloggerpalooza in Delaware last March. I was going to wear that and give all the old ladies that signed up for water aerobics a thrill. haha. But my work schedule just seems to be eat, sleep, work, etc. I just need to work harder at finding time to take it easy. One good thing is Winter is 2/3s over and it's all down on the way to Spring.
|My feeling of Winter so far.|

Saturday night dance party! OK I'm doing my own Randy in NEB. Saturday night dance party. If it looks like a cheap and shameless rip-off of blogger buddy Anne Marie's, it's because it is. I've been going threw old cassette tapes in boxes. And found some music I've forgotten about for nearly 25 years. So I looked online and found this song, it's a Canadian group recorded in 1991 Candi and the Backbeat. Instantly loved the song, oh and the key board player is very hot too. ;) So apologizes to Anne Marie for the shameless rip-off of your idea. How I'm feeling tonight. Sing like no one's listening. Dance like on one's watching. And shake your groove thang!

Hey everybody just a quick post today. In honor of my friend Ron of Retired In Delaware and his friend Pat. I have one of many videos for or relating to vacations or travel for fun. This song I was playing when flying to Delmarva last March. Traveling is fun, nice to get away. But it's sometime nicer so much nicer to come home as well.
