Bluntness

I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

Riding through the holiday

 While yesterday was the actual day for celebrating our Independence, today, the 5th of July, is when many people will celebrate... well, that's not completely accurate.  Today, I suspect, a number of Americans will be dealing with hangovers.  Not me.  I went to bed at my usual time last evening, the sounds of fireworks in nearby Harrisburg booming in my ears.  Sometimes I can sleep through anything.

 


Today, I'll go to work and I suspect business will be slow, except for those looking to take advantage of 'sale' prices.  Not in flooring.  They will, most likely, bring in some sort of food for us.  I know yesterday they brought in Jersey Mike's subs... or maybe Jersey Mike sells barbecue.  Which ever one the franchise sells is the one they served up for the employees.  Either way, I'm taking my lunch.  Meatloaf.  That's right.  One of the ways I celebrated the 4th was to make a large meatloaf.  Yummy.

A bicycle ride was also booked.  Cow Creek.  I rode half of the 17 mile ride, only need a few miles to complete the 55 miles per week for completely my goal.  This morning, I will ride some other route.

For those of you who don't work today, have a good day off.  For those like me, may your eight hours pass fast.  Tomorrow, I'm scheduled off again.  Of course, the temps here are forecasted to reach 100 (F) so what ever gets done outside will be done in the morning.

  1. Today is the last day of my four day weekend, and thus starts my three day work week before another four day weekend.

    1. The lack of a hangover is simply amazing.

  3. The fourth was loud around here. I could hear the fireworks until past midnight. The doggies did not bat an eyelash, but they stayed with their mistress the whole night.
    I was thinking I should make a trip to the big orange box store to buy some plants. I just killed ann ivy.

    p.s. did you watch the video of Zuckerberg playing Jesus walking on water while playing Country Roads? American flag and all. Shameless.

  4. Buster was fine, but my mother's dog Lilith was on the verge of a nervous breakdown the last three nights, including tonight again.
