Dropping by

The family reunion was good; we got together and did the usual summer thing of grilling burgers and dogs, potato salad, all the good stuff people put together when having a picnic.  Unfortunately, a couple of days ago my aunt had a brain aneurysm and had to by hospitalized, so we're concerned at how she is going to be in the next few days.


Today the light of my life, my wife, turned another year older.
Happy birthday, Sandy.


I'm not even going to get into the campaign for POTUS; it pretty much boils down to two douchebags and their lackeys telling lies about themselves and each other while waging a shit-slinging war.
If I seem a bit harsh when describing them, so be it.


It was sad to see Ernest Borgnine go; I enjoys a lot of his movies while growing up.
I think my two favorite performances of his were in The Wild Bunch and The Vikings.
RIP, big guy.


A mixed batch today.

"Chicago" by Benny Goodman
"Your Cheatin' Heart" by Hank Williams
"Legend of a Mind" by The Moody Blues
"Sundown" by Gordon Lightfoot
"The Night We Called It A Day" by Dave Brubek
"The Warrior" by Patty Smyth
"Deep Purple" by Nino Tempo and April Stevens
"Sitting At the Wheel" by The Moody Blues
"Don't Come Around Here No More" by Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers
"Temptation" by Cote De Pablo

A song from the eighties.  Still not sure why all the effete ninjas and bad-fashion refugees.

A classic video from a classic band.

 If you're a straight guy and this doesn't raise your blood pressure a bit, you need to see a doctor.

Well, I don't know about my blood pressure, but it certainly raised something.

Happy Birthday to your bride and I hope your Aunt is doing better.

Good choice of music.

AlanDP: talented young lady, isn't she?

Brigid: when they went in to fix the aneurysm, they found another one and were able to fix them both. So far she is recovering well.

Sounds like a good old-fashioned and fun reunion. Sorry to hear about your aunt. Hope she's doing better.

And happy birthday to your bride!
