Absolutely Useless Facts About Yourself, No One Cares About

Yearly physical this morning. I could have done everything myself except run labs on the blood sample. I bet I could google DIY lab work.

Take yourself out for Whataburger afterwards. That should help.

I saw a preview for a new TV show called 9-1-1: Lone Star.

They've tapped Rob Lowe to play JimVH.

JimVH refused to play himself because they do production in Austin.

Well sitting there watching the game and I see an older man look over the gate. He looks at me, I look at him and we both realize we are smoking pipes. He comes on over and sits down and we have a rather nice conversation. He is smoking some PA and was talking about the price he had to pay at Walgreens (I inform him about the 85% tax in Florida). Anyway before we leave I give him a baggie I had with me with about three flakes of ODF in it for him to try. Great time when ever I find another pipe smoker to talk to.

We went to Lake Tahoe to celebrate our 23rd anniversary and visit our fine young man (FYM) who worked at Heavenly Valley Ski Resort and could get us discounted lift tickets before he leaves for home to attend EMT school.

We left Friday after work, had diner at a Wendy's on the highway and checked in to Harvey's at South Lake Tahoe.
The next morning we met our FYM for breakfast at the Red Hut where they serve pancakes the size of hub caps.
Trying to avoid carbs, I had an omelette with hot Italian sausage. Afterwards we went to heavenly and picked up our lift tickets for Sunday and walked around Stateline. The we went to the Taco Bar in the basement of Harvey's Casino and watched the 49er's play Green Bay---what a game!
After we went to the local church, St Therese, for the Sunday vigil mass.
For our anniversary dinner we went to McDuff's Pub, a little place away from the casino noise and enjoyed a terrific meal---I had a Swiss mushroom burger and my bride ordered the spaghetti bolognese.
Back at the casino/hotel we tried our hand at gambling but just couldn't enjoy it---no real Keno, all the slots were impossibly complicated and black jack tables used eight decks with pretty hefty minimum wagers 8O
There were no shows that looked appealing

Early the next morning we had breakfast at Heidi's, an old cafe popular with the Fresno Ski Club "back in the day" then we met the FYM and his pals(they came all the way from Texas) and hit the slopes. We skied longer than they did, which surprised us, but then we had taken a break at Stein's, a mid mountain bar for drinks and grilled sausage sandwiches. About 3:00 we took the chair lift down to the California Lodge. It was a beautiful view with Lake Tahoe at our feet all the way down.
Then we hit the Apres Ski scene at a bar called Gun Barrel and watched the Sea Hawks and Packers during Happy Hour.
We were exhausted and sore from the day on the slopes so we walked to a B-B-Q place for dinner that was sadly disappointing.
This morning we drove to Zephyr Cove for breakfast and fueled up with Nevada gasoline, then met up with the FYM at the employee's Animal House where we loaded up our car with stuff he couldn't fit in his Prius for the trip home.
On the way back to Fresno we stopped at Placerville to stretch our legs a bit in this gold rush town where I really enjoyed the old hardware store, then on to Sacramento to the Ikea where my bride wanted to pick up some napkins and a watering can. We had Swedish meatballs for lunch, then drove back to Fresno, where the FYM had beat us home and had already split to meet up with his friends.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I filled out a couple of take home stool sample kits but keep forgetting to bring them in to the lab. I wonder if they're still good for testing.

Meanwhile there's been a fly in my truck for the past week. It flies out of and back in the window while I'm going 60 mph. How does it do that?

It's an aerodynamic thing.... the drag in the back of the truck is reduced and an air bubble of sorts if the tailgate is up. If your tailgate were down the gas mileage would go down but the fly probably wouldn't have flown back into the cab.
