My youngest got his learner's permit on Friday. I took him out to an empty parking lot today for his first chance behind the wheel. I was pretty impressed by how well he did for his first time.

Cigar event this Friday night. I'm registered for it. I'm also committed to a high school playoff football game this Friday, so I'm in sort of a dilemma.

If the dogs decide they need to go out in the middle of the night, my wife can get out of bed, take them downstairs, let them out, wait, let them in, come back upstairs, lie down, and be back asleep almost immediately.

If the dogs manage to wake me up when they decide they need to go out in the middle of the night, I'll be awake for at least an hour. At least an hour.

I'm close to bailing on social media altogether, but may be spending some time here, because I consider this more like antisocial media.

Anyway, I'm only a few hundred posts from 10,000.

I have a friend who's brother is a high school AD who's football team made it to the second level of the state playoffs so they played last weekend. Rifle deer season opened last weekend. More than one parent complained of the scheduling conflict.

Yep, I'm thinking I'm going to have to go to the game, and just have someone pick up my cigars and door prize for me.

Speaking of antisocial; whose idea was it to have the "Notifications" start blinking red at me? I have enough problems.

I thoroughly enjoy the smell of wood smoke outside in the increasingly chilly air. As a bonus, one of my neighbors seems to have taken to burning pine. That smells extra nice.

This also allows me to restart my ritual of reloading the stove with my morning coffee.
