Well, Happy Memorial Day to everyone out there. It doesn’t feel like a warm holiday. Goofy weather and am wondering what Ma Nature is going to throw at us next.
Well, I ended up working Friday instead of Saturday. I guess some of the workers, I.E. Boss man wanted three days off in a row. So, I didn’t go to the casino in downtown Cleveland. It’ll still be there. I’m in no real hurry to drop cash in that place. Everyone at work tells me the buffet is great. Sorry, but that doesn’t rev my engines. There are plenty of good places to eat nearby that doesn’t have a slot machine nearby.
Longmire and The Glades new seasons start tonight. Ah, the wonders of technology. I have both recording to watch later this week.
Didn’t do much this weekend. Just the normal chores. And managed to get my walks in. And dodging rain drops today.
Went to Goodwill and picked up a series of books I haven’t read in a while. W.E.B Griffin, who writes about the Military, wrote a series called The Brotherhood Of War. It follows a group of people from the last days of World War II to The Viet Nam War. It’s been a few years since I’ve read the series and I couldn’t pass it up. The new Brad Thor book isn’t due out until July.
A short work week awaits me. Just have to get through a thirteen hour day on Tuesday. Eh, do this every holiday. Used to it. The price of a four day work week. Didn’t do any of the cook out stuff. A tad bit cold. And I just wasn’t into it. There’s a shindig later next month at my cousins place in Medina I’m trying to get the rest of the family to attend, if only for a few hours. And maybe try and reconnect with another family member who lives nearby. It’s a pain in the ass when family are warring with each other and you’re caught in the crossfire. May need to pack flack jackets the next time.
One the things that bugs me when I do my weekend walks is the amount of trash along side of the roads and side walks. I thought there was a law against littering. I’m reminded of a something I saw. A comic strip had some one picking up trash and some damned fool tossing out their trash out the window. That was one of the things I loved about the Germany/Europe. Everything was neat. And the nature walks, called Volks Marching in Germany, took you around the small towns. I missed those walks. And beer and bratwort’s (Flipping spell check ain’t working worth a damn. I left my Dictionary at work in my back pack. Need to go to Dollar Tree for another copy.) Eh, there’s this awesome German restaurant in Cleveland where I have a good meal. I need to go there some time soon. Their Beer list is very good.
Well, running out of things to say. Not much to say. For a while there, The Cleveland Indians were on a tear but reality set in and it’s a long season. I haven’t been to a game in a long time. It’s good place to see a game. But parking is expensive. Well, it’s expensive in downtown Cleveland. Would rather listen to the game on the radio.
Oh, don’t bother to download the new update for Facebook on the smart phone. I did and wished I didn’t. Don’t like how long it takes to load. Which reminds me to figure out how to transfer things to my SD Micro Memory card. I’m running out of space.
Still want a tablet. Just haven’t made my mind what brand and when. It may end being a Christmas gift to myself. Am leaning towards a Kindle HD. Need to do more research on this.
Long Day tomorrow. Need to get a few hours of sleep.
Hope everyone out there is doing fine. There are a few Xangans who haven’t posted in a while. Hope they’re doing fine.
