Hump Day Rule 5 - 'Til The Cows Come Home


Tuesday, October 27, 2015

Good God

I was just five minutes from my hotel when the call came in...

That Guy - Hey, did you see that alarm from [redacted]?

MSgt B - No, Dude, I'm driving. I'm headed south out of Cape Canaveral, whaddya got?

TG - I got an alarm for Unit #2 shutting down for low feed pressure.

MSgt B - Shit. Well...I'm only about an hour or so from there. I'll go check it out.

TG - Thanks bro. Last time, all we had to do was reset the system and everything worked fine.

MSgt B - Is there anyone you can can call there that can walk over from the control room and do it for us?

TG - I'm not sure. I think as long as I get the guy that can remember to reset the alarm on #2 and then reset the alarm on the main long as he makes sure that he hits the button marked "....

MSgt B - Nevermind. I got it.

That was yesterday.

I've been back twice today. Once at 0600 and again at 1830.

St Crispin's Day

And Gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,

I've been pretty slow getting back to this blogging thing after that break.

Work is crazy. We're pulling in jobs faster than we can keep up.

The good news is that I get to spend this week in sunny Florida, wandering up and down the east coast. I'll miss all the leftover rain from Hurricane Patricia that's about to get dumped on Birmingham.

Grandma left yesterday.
I've been busy running around the house, pouring beer on my head and singing 80's rock songs.

Blame this one on DaddyBear.

A list of shit my dog has eaten in his first seven months of life:

1. Three squeeky toys
2. A Tug-of-war rope toy
3. Three socks (One black, two white)
4. One TV remote
5. Several rocks
6. Several pine cones
7. Countless twigs and leaves
8. Dirt
9. Two ball-point pens
10. Most of a box of tissues
11. A 6" x 6" portion of window-frame (wooden)
12. Poop...lots of it...usually his own, but not always.
13. A field mouse...I think it was dead already
14. Any mushroom he can find growing in the yard
15. Most of a paperback book
16. Four electrical cords (he just won't learn)
17. One large biting ant...that was fun to watch.
18. One dining room chair leg
19. Eight full-sized ham bones, smoked
20. Three full-sized bovine femurs, smoked

I had no idea I was getting a fur-coated chain saw for a pet.
He's managed to pass everything he's eaten so far. (Don't even ask me about the springs from the ball-point pens.)

Pretty soon I'm just going to give up and let him start in on the brick and mortar.

Hump Day Rule 5 - Jacqueline Obradors

I watched Deuce Bigalow again with the old lady recently.
I can't believe Jacqueline slipped through the cracks...

Hard to believe she could slip through any crack with a chest like that...

Hump Day Rule 5 - The Little Willies

Yeah, I know. I keep posting about Norah Jones over and over.

Lately, she's been playing around town with a band called The Little Willies.

With the Mother-in-Law visiting and the End-of-Year stuff at work, somebody's been a busy little bee.

I'll get back to it soon.

I even missed a Hump Day Rule 5 post, so here's some bewbies.
