Our puppy finally figured out how to go down stairs this weekend. And jump on the couch. She's almost a real dog now.

Luckily it’s indoor, but holy shit the smoke is killing my eyes. I just fired up a second one.


It was pretty damn smoky in there, but at least we were out of the elements. It was a lot bigger than normal crowd.

I've really been craving one, but it's too damn cold.  I may bundle up and power through like half a stick.

Wife and I hit 24 years on Jan 1st. Yes, our wedding was on Y2K (Jan 1 2000).


Why is this extraordinary? I have convinced a woman to stay with me for 24 years and counting.

Congrats. I actully met my Wife on Jan 1st 2000.

Started that "cooler weather" tradition I've done a bit of the last handful of years where I mix scotch, apple cider and add a bit of cinnamon. Nice sipping drink to watch TV or read or do whatever while drinking.

I don't think I've had it before, but at 28% I'm probably out at 2 ounces. I have enough trouble with a small pour of ~14% BA stouts. 


I won a lottery at Jungle Jim's for the opportunity to purchase Utopias. Bought it last night. I've never had it before out of all the beers I've tried.

Shoes on in my place and every place I grew up.

I do go to a friend's house often, and it's shoes off there because that's what they do. They have never asked. I just noticed they do.

Used to when my grand parents and parents were alive. Now we have none. For a few years now my sister has been making pasta for Christmas events. Maybe she's trying to start another one.

Cheap box o wine. I gave up on the craft beer stuff. Too many new stuff and styles. I gave up after being a fan since 2005.

Oh yeah, it was the 9th or the 11th, I think  


I believe it was the 9th. I know it wasn't the 11th as That's my wedding anniversary. Don't need the memory of 'Free Huddle' ruining that day. Other than that Happy Thanksgiving OC'ers !!!

I was a PC/LAN Technician for a very large Pharmaceutical Benefits Manager. After our company was bought out, twice, and the restructuring to the Data Center Model our PC's went away. That and all of our Servers too. Since COVID all of our associates are work at home for the future. It's now been relabled as Deskside Support. I've been the only one in my department that goes into the office everyday. So now I mostly FedEx replacement equipment out to employees when it breaks...pays the same though.

I should throw out what my wife does because she makes the big bucks. 


She is VP of inventory and planning management. She helped build a womens plus size brand that got sold to Walmart for 100 million a few years ago. 


She now works for a private family owned company that makes and sales rugs. She is basically an excel genius. She has been in the retail industry since 2007. Started at a salary of 35k in Kansas for Payless and now makes almost 300k and works remotely now. If I remember right this is currently the 5th retailer she has worked for. She was lucky and made a great connection who has been her mentor and helped her rise thru the ranks. Her mentor is a retail superstar who helped found various companies like Abercrombie, Ruhle, and Eloquii. 


The place she works now dominates the rug market and the family who owns the business treat their employees amazingly. They have tapped my wife and the owners two sons as the next generation of leadership for the company. 

Our Daughter-In-Law is a therapist out in Los Angeles. Her degree is a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology with Emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy, and Clinical Counseling.

Her clients include adults and children. Appointments are 50 minutes.

Even though LA County has dropped its covid protocols, most of her sessions are still remote. The clients got used to it and most prefer it that way, particularly for convenience. There are in-person appointments for the others.

Shortage of therapists out there too.



Back to topic, I retired 3 1/2 years ago at age 59 from Post Secondary Education (Admissions Director). My goal was to retire by 60, so I made it by a couple of months. My wife retired from YSU this past Christmas. Six months later, she still loves me most of the time. We're celebrating our 40 year anniversary next month!


Go Tribe!

I have got to find one of those stores to visit. I think the closest one to me is in Cincinnati. 

Fairfield, just northwest of Cincinnati. I live about 5-8 minutes from it. Was just there yesterday for their Cigar Event.

Going to have a lot of different samples tonight. It's time for Jungle Jim's Beer Fest. The Wife and I are going both nights.
