Day 1.... Vacation...

I am maxing and relaxing here in beautiful Cable, WI on Lake Namakagon. Crown and 7 is the way to go. Of course I do have the Coors Light (24 pack) polished off in less than 24 hours. Yeah baby. Played alot of Bean Bags with the fam. Going down to the beach right now to let the niece have some fun in the lake. Will be going golfing tomorrow and fishing is also in the plan.

More to come...

Post surgery...

Yeah, it's been a while since I've posted. I know I said I would post some pics of the Milwaukee vacation too. Well, I will say that within three days of being more active from the norm of laying around and taking it really easy, I went ahead and got back into my regular routine. I played some softball and have worked my regular hours at work. My appetite is back and so is my craving for the "Coors Light". Gotta say "when you push yourself, you can recover alot faster". I kinda pissed the wife off a little by playing softball Monday night when I said I only would if we didn't have enough players there. Then last night I played my normal position in Left Center the whole game instead of doing what I said I would which was work myself into my normal postition by switching out every other inning. Believe me, if she were in my body the entire time from pain to surgery to recovery, she would understand that I have really been feeling the recovery happen very fast within the last 72 hours. I am really like being back to myself and for some reason feel even like I am better than before. I think it is just because I was laid up for a week and a half. Anyway, I am excited to get on with the summer and hope everyone is enjoying their's.

Good night.

Can you say "Appendectomy"?

3 Days of pain prompted 1 Doctor's appointment, which enduced a visit to the ER for 3 Laproscopic incisions and the removal of my Appendix. Had plenty pain meds while I was there. I just can't figure out how in less than 24 hours I had been sent home from the Hospital. Had my appendix removed. I will be out of commission for a few days so I'm sure there will be more time to blog for you all. Everything's fine and I will post soon.

God Bless!!!

Weekend Destination...

Here we go!

It's a weekend road trip to Milwaukee to see the Twins and Brewers play. Friday night is the first of a three game series in Milwaukee at Miller Park. This will be the first time I have been to this stadium. When I was younger we used to always go there and watch the two teams play at County Stadium. I can't wait to go. As you can see in the picture, there will be some tailgating going on before the game. It's been a long time since I have gotten to tailgate. Beer, Brats, Beer, No-Name Steaks, and more Beer are in the forecast for this weekend.

I will some pics and a little more about the trip when I return.

Happy Day!

Introducing the newest addition...

Here it is! The newest addition to the family. The newest toy for Scott and Katie to enjoy!

A brand new 2007 Yamaha Road Star Warrior. 1670cc 102cu. in motor. Love it! Right off the bat I had them put the "double t" handlebars on and some Vance & Hines "Big shots" pipes on it. I have had soooooo many comments on how great the bike looks and sounds. Thanks honey!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for letting me get it. We will have alot of fun between this and the boat.

On a different note, the Twins lost the to the Red Sox 5-3 on Sat. evening with myself in attendance. No more undefeated streak. I am now 5 and 1 in attendance. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.

New topic: Scott is getting old. My body is aching quite a bit from the game called Softball. Our first week of it and we had to start off with a double header. WOW!! Can you say SORE???

Hope everyone is well. Later!

I've been tagged...

My lovely wife Katie (Another Day In Paridise) has tagged me for the 6 quirky things about me so here I go:

1) Absolutely NO ONE can try to help me or touch anything in the kitchen that is cooking or needs to be prepared unless I ask for the help. NO ONE!!! I literally chew people's heads off if they touch anything without me asking or giving permission.

2) Even though I have a nice bathroom upstairs, I choose to shower and get ready downstairs instead. Katie always asks me why. I think it's because I grew up downstairs at my mom and dad's and just prefer it that way. I also do it so I don't wake her up. I am kinda loud and don't realize it unless I'm told. (Nellie and Badge can attest to this one from vacation: Toilet seat)

3) Seat #16 (Twin's games) need I say more?

4) I love the cheese on my pizza to be just about burnt. When I order pizza from a restaurant I will have the pizza sent back to cook longer if I it isn't slightly browned.

5) I have a problem with making sure people have certain items available to eat with dinner when they invite me over. I guess you can call me a picky eater, but, I really eat anything. It's just when I eat a hot dog or burger, dammit "I want onions!"

6) And finally, (this one has been pointed out to me several times by a few of my co-workers)

2 favorite words: "I" and "Me" Ask them.

So that's all for this tagged post.

Over and out!
