I think I've lost about 15 pounds

Working in the Alabama heat, wearing fire retardant coveralls over my normal work clothes.

Going through about three gallons of water a day.

Looks like we're right on track to finish the job by....Monday.

Well, shit.

Is My Herpes Cured?

I got a few emails about how my blog had caught a case of internet herpes.

Between that and having to work so damn much, I just sort of walked away for a few days.
I think I've got it licked now.

Drop me a line if you're still getting malware warnings.
I'd like to get back to the usual mindless drivel and bewbie pictures.

Sunday morning sleep-in #64


A chance to sit down and relax for a day few hours.

Let's get out the St. Clair Times and see what's been going on while I was away.

I mentioned the Leeds Fall Festival last week. 

It's set for September 21-22.
Turns out it's actually the Leeds Downtown Folk Festival and John Henry Celebration
Leeds is yet another town that claims to be the site of the famous competition between the "Steel Drivin' Man" and that newfangled steam powered drill.
Leeds High School students will be putting on a play about it at the depot.

I'll definitely be there...either because this job up in Decatur is finished, or I need to brush up my resume.

Gov. Robert Bentley came for a visit.

He toured Pell City and had lunch with the mayor and a bunch of judges. He also visited Interstate Freight and sat down for a bit with the County Economic Development Council.

Charlie Browning, the owner of Interstate Freight, said, "I think he's a real down-to-earth fellow."

Another nasty car wreck.

James Bliss, of Odenville, ran up under the trailer of a truck that was backing into the Fastenal store on Route 11. The truck was across the road, backing into the loading docks there.

They flew him by helicopter to the hospital.

The Leeds Green Wave lost to Trinity last week, 29-21. 

That puts us at 1-1 so far.

Looks like Springville High School is coming out strong this season, with a 2-0 record after beating Hayden 35-0. Their first win of the season was 56-0.
That's right, two shutout games so far. They switched their defense from the standard 3-5 they were running last year to a 4-2-5, and no one's been able to score a point against them yet.

Saturday Morning Coffee #78


Should have known better than to try to slip in a night at home this week.

Gotta get on the road.

Random Thursday

Work is whuppin my ass.

Randy Houser is coming to Decatur this weekend.
If I get stuck here, I'm going to try to get tickets.

Hump Day Rule 5 - Triple Play

Did you know Taylor Swift was just shy of six feet tall? I had no idea.

Carrie Underwood is an Okie from Muskogee. Seriously...

IMHO.  Miranda Lambert has the most luscious posterior in country music today.
Hands down. No Contest.
It's even nicer since she got all thick.

Great Moments in History

You know what's really funny?

He's talking about those evil Republicans.

Ha Ha
Joke's on you, George.

Sunday morning sleep-in #63

Nice to have at least one day at home.

I got to have a nice dinner with Mrs B last night; pork kabobs with onion, mushrooms and peppers over white rice.
Tonight will be that old Alabama standard; fried chicken, with mashed taters and green beans, then it's back in the truck and back up to Decatur. I need to be on site at the butt-crack of dawn tomorrow.

Let's see what the St. Clair Times has for us this week....

Ashley Cartier died from injuries sustained in an auto accident. She plowed a school bus that had stopped to load kids on her way to school early Friday morning. She was driving one of those little Kia thingies and it went right under the back of the bus.
She was 17 years old.

I'm sure I've mentioned the start of the school year around here before.
Take your foot off the gas. There's nothing that'll get your heart going like coming around a curve at 45 mph and finding a school bus stopped in the road.

Leeds High School managed to hold off Lincoln for a 12-6 win.
It was a defensive slug-fest, but they got the job done.

Head coach Keith Etheredge was quoted, "We won.  It wasn't pretty in some spots."

Bag Supply Company is opening a manufacturing facility on Moore Dr.
They make all kinds of bags, plastic, paper, burlap, you name it.

50 more jobs for the local community. Win!

The Leeds Fall Festival is coming up, September 21-22 in downtown Leeds.

Who's in?

Saturday Morning Coffee #77

Temps hit 103F yesterday; beginning to feel like a chunk of overcooked bacon.

Ate at the Mellow Mushroom last night. (Decatur) Nice joint.
Food is a little better than the one over in Rome Georgia, but the waitresses aren't as hot.

Should have this job knocked out by noon today, then on to the next one just down the street.
Looks like I'll be here in Decatur for another week or so. Blogging will suffer accordingly.

Hump Day Rule 5 - Sophie Turner

I'm confused now...


Is that the same Sophie Turner as in Game of Thrones?
If it is, she looks much hotter as a redhead...maybe it's just me.

Picture This (A Mental Exercise)

First this:

Someone like, say, Nancy R. saying, "I went through a whole box of tissues watching that movie last night."

Then this:

Me, saying, "I went through a whole box of tissues watching that movie last night."

See the difference?

No need to thank me for the mental image, I'm just generous like that.

Happy Mostly Meaningless and Vaguely Communist Holiday!

I'd love to join you in a masturbatory orgy of instant gratification at the local retail outlet...

...but I have too much work to do.


Fuck you.

Fast food workers across the nation strike to protest minimum wage.

Sunday morning sleep-in #62

I should just quit blogging at this point.

The internets have been won, for all time.

Well played, Erin Palette. Well played.

P.S. - Brother, if you think this gets you out of the bikini/cheesecake pics, you're wrong. This is the internet.
          Pics Motherfucker!


Mcafee's at it again.

You can have a bunch of raw video footage to do what you would like with it.
You just have to promise him your first-born, or something like that.

When I grow up, I wanna be John McAfee.

The Easy Button.

I ditched the Bug-A-Salt idea, and went with the earrings for Mrs B's birthday.
In my defense, ever since she got her hair cut short, she's been "mentioning" what a shame it is she doesn't have nice earrings to show off.

I have never been really good at "hints" and such, but eventually I got the idea.
She didn't even have to resort to a sign hanging around her neck reading, "Wouldn't this face look better framed by a pair of 14kt gold hoops?"

I must be improving...

Thanks for all the great gift suggestions on yesterday's post, especially the "pewter dragon from a truck stop" and the "bottle of 16 year-old Scotch".
You guys are so fucked up. Don't ever change.

I went ahead and bought the Bug-A-Salt for myself.
