BT, that's fantastic. I can imaging your feelings of pride in your son's accomplishments.

Wow, Bucky! I'll bet all your buttons have popped off!!! What a fantastic achievement. Your little guy is quite something. I'm proud for you.

As for, "What am I doing," well I have my regular Friday chores to get out of the way before we hop on the Harley and spend the rest of the day goofing off.

It's unseasonably pleasant here for this time in June and we plan to take advantage of it and head out...wherever.

Retirement is awesome!!!!

On two hours of light sleep I managed to make it to the pool. My walking partner "stood me up" but that's okay because I did both Monday and Wednesday when I couldn't walk on land in my house! Really kicking myself for not exchanging numbers or emails "just in case". Anyways, I did a basic 20 lengths (500 meters) and considering the pain and I missed two days I am very happy about that.

What am I doing now? Going to bed to try and catch at least a couple more hours of sleep before I start working on my lasagna....can't wait! I love cooking for my BIL as he really appreciates food!

Oh, and while the guys are probably off playing computer games or talking I am going to curl up with our first CFL game of the year. Friday Night Football won't be the same without Dad, but I am sure he will be happy I am keeping up the tradition!

Just got up. Nursing coffee and trying to pry my eyes open.

Getting ready to go out (as soon as I finish my second cup of coffee). I'll stop at Costco to pick up a few things and see what's new.

Isn't that the best? I love people who appreciate food {anything, actually}

Trying to concentrate on that bookkeeping. I'm only on my second coffee of the morning. I really dislike bookkeeping.

Just woke up. Heading to Mount Helix? Later to let the kids run and my wife's uncle's pool.
I love San Diego.

I just took a survey on migraine triggers and one listed (which I marked) is staring at TV and computer screens. Completing the survey puts you in a draw to win.....an IPad!
