Yesterday, while I was getting a coffee at my favorite coffee place, Beaner's, they had a question on their board, "what was the stupidest thing you've ever done"

But we are having a beautiful weekend.
But I'll take what I can get,
And we had our first outdoor grilling, Pork Kabobs with Red, Yellow, and Green Peppers, Onions, Pineapple, that we then served over Rice.
More yard pics as the yard springs forth!

After she left, Patty, Craig and I looked at each other and started laughing, wondering how I looked like a $20 haircut!

Another weekend over and back to work.
Laid low on Sunday, cleaned and played on the puter.
Back in March, when we had that 70 degree weekend, I cleaned and sealed the rubber roof on the mo-ho. One of the shrouds had a small crack that had been caulked, and of course I accidentally stepped right on it, breaking it open.

As you may have noticed, I'm posting a little less often than I use to. I've been rethinking this blogging thing. And during the long winter, I got caught up in this blogging world. As I picked up more readers, it became like a drug, I wanted more! I did lot's of posts trying to "entertain" my readers.
Now don't get me wrong, I have enjoyed this blogging experience, and have "met" some great bloggers, but I know as the weather warms, I'm such an outdoor person, I won't have as much time to blog and read all the blogs I've discovered and enjoy. There are really some very good writers, thinkers, and entertainers out there.
But that's not me. And that's not why I started this blog.
I will post when I have something to share. But as with most people, I have work and home life that isn't really all that exciting. Day to day stuff is most always the same.
But today, I do have something to share.
As I got up this morning and looking out the window,
I saw 3 wild Turkeys in my back yard!
I took this pic out the blinds of my bedroom.
The other 2 were by the deck.
They flew off when I opened the shades
to get a better pic.
Damn! they are big birds!
And actually, I'll probably be posting more as the weather warms and my gardens come to life, and also of our 10 mo-ho trips we have planned for this summer.
But right now April is going colder than normal, and there's not much going on.

Okay, I've been hit with the meme thingy again. Morgen, who apparently delights in tormenting me, has awarded me with the "Thinking Blogger Award". Although I'm sure I'm not worthy.
Now, I don't know who thought up this silly award, but I will graciously accept it in the spirit it was given. BUT, as part of the conditions of this "award", I have to "award" 5 other bloggers. So, because I read some blogs I'd like to give recognition to, I decided to accept.
Here is my 5 selections for my "Thinking Blogger Award".
1. No Matter What.
This is definitely a blog that makes you think. And at times makes you laugh.
From serious commentary, to gut busting jokes. A good read.
2. Captain Caveman.
A guy with a fascinating past. Rediscovering himself and reinventing himself. And taking us
along for the ride!
3. Recovery Beach.
On the road to recovery, and showing us how he's handling and accepting his new life.
4. Saturday Night Soup.
Great paintings, and the stories behind them.
5. Spirit of Saint Lewis.
Because he is a crazy free spirit and just such a fun read!
So go give them a look see.
You may find a new must read Blog!
As if we need more!

Yes, that's right, I did absolutely nothing worth while this past weekend!
No house work, no yard work,(too damn cold) nothing! I just sat and played my computer game, 1701 A.D. (like way too many hours) This late winter like weather has just got me in a funk! I'm soooo over it! We cancelled our first mo-ho trip, which makes the season even shorter!
Okay, take a deep breath,..... yes,....that's better.
I'll be okay, as soon as the weather cooperates.
But it does seem like life is whizzing by and it seems like I keep waiting for the next chapter.
And I'm not getting any younger!
So on that note, Here is the Cat in The Hat on Aging..........
I found it to be quite fun!
And of course, I stole it from another blog!

As you can see from the map here, Spring has retreated and winter has returned. And the long range forecast is for below normal temps for the next 2 weeks. After enjoying the last 2 weekends out side, I'm back indoors.
On a more positive note.......in college Hockey......

Okay, enough of this, I'm off to work!
Oh, and my TDS e-mail is still screwed up. I did open a Gmail account, and have been moving everything over to that including this Blog. So if any of my readers have my TDS e-mail saved, please switch to my new Gmail one. I think I like the Gmail better!

We had another nice weekend! Temperatures in the 60's!
I took advantage of this and cleaned the pond. We clean the pond about every 3 years. Yes, once you put in a pond, there is maintenance! The first year I scooped out about 100 dead bloated frogs! It's only about 18 inches deep, so the frogs can't bury them selves in mud. And we have no fish. Which is good since a Great Blue Heron found the pond a few years back and now keeps it fairly frog free. Today, I just had to scoop out a lot of debris and pond scum. Divide and re-pot pond plants and refill the pond with water. For the complete set of pond cleaning pics, cleaning pond .
Oh.......And I still cannot get my e-mails!

This started just over a week ago. TDS, my Internet provider, "upgraded" their stuff.
It actually got somewhat better, in that I'd get some e-mails each day but some were"hidden".
Yesterday, I couldn't even get into my account!
So if anyone has sent me an e-mail, and I haven't responded, It's because I either haven't got it, Or I have it and it's "hidden". Hopefully TDS will get things straightened out soon!
