Took Solomon to get his first haircut. When he heard the clippers, he made the same face I made the first time I heard someone speaking in tongues.

I just saw that Pete Bertolero (aka PipePastor on YouTube) passed away yesterday morning. I’ve definitely enjoyed some of his material over the years. He will be missed.

56 acres of land right across the road from my house is up for sale at 1000.00 an acre. It was a pine plantation that was harvested three years ago and has grown up. It's full of deer, some bears, bobcats, foxes, wild turkeys and there is a marsh area in the back. It is classified as wetlands so it's not good for anything except hunting and growing pulp pines. I want it. The problem is that I don't have 56,000.00 dollars. I don't even have 20,000.00 to lowball an offer. Oh well.

That's right, it is free if you pick it up at the store. If I had the money I'd make an offer. It would be nice to have my own hunting land right across the road from my house. I have some property in my home county for sale that's been on the market for three years. Maybe it will sell and I can get this place. You never know what God's will is.

I finally made it home last night Abt 10 pm. Ate BBQ from Bucee's, and it was mooing at me at 230 am this morning. A guy on the jetway in Denver began talking loudly about plane crashes. I turned and asked him what row he was sitting on.
And another thing about this recent trip:
1. There's getting to be more and more wheel chairs in the airports, regular convoys, and they get to board first. Some of them seem to make miraculous recoveries in the air, and go bounding off of the plane.
2. More and more ladies are wearing jeans with holes in the knees. One can't help but notice.
3. There's a deer-crossing sign on the south-bound side of the I-25 freeway in Col Springs. There's a bullet hole in it; a sign on the freeway! But not only did the shooter have poor judgement, but the shooter missed. The bullet hit about an inch or two behind the running deer. It's realistic I suppose.
4. The temp was ~80°F on Wed when I arrived around noon, and I was comfortable in a thin shirt with sleeves. I met up with Bloodhound that evening on the hotel's outside patio area for a beer and a smoke, and the visit was great. But then a cold-front began blowing in like a lion, and before long I was very uncomfortable in a thin shirt. I hung in there as long as I could, using Scott's lighter for warmth as often as possible until the fluid ran out.
5. The temp on Thursday dropped into the 20s and it began snowing. By Friday morning the temp was 7°F. By Friday afternoon the temp had risen into the 40s.
6. The bison burger at the Col Springs Marriot is awesome. Laughing Lab is an awesome beer.
7. Airplane seats are getting smaller and smaller.

Someone got Solomon some play-dough for his birthday. He brings it over to me to open and says, "Please."
"Okay, but we don't eat it."
Take off the lid.
"Here you go. Don't eat it"
Hands it to Solomon who sticks it up to his tongue.

It's Thanksgiving. Monster snowstorm this week. 100,000 without power at one point. 40k still without and expected to be days. 30,000 trees snapped like twigs from weight of snow.

I got 10" only in my yard, but some areas got 28" ... Very wet heavy stuff.

Worked out in my favour though. Put some old snow tires up for sale and sold them in under an hour

It's the bottom of the 11th, score still tied 2-2, Astros coming up to bat, they've already left 21 stranded on base, and it's the bottom of the order that's up, and it's now going on midnight. I think I'm going to bed.

Well, I spoke too soon, Correa just hit a walk-off homer. I need to remember this ploy.
