Hiya back. :-) Sorry I missed you last night. I went to bed early. Stupid early day today. :-p Yeah, you got me. That came in a moment of inspiration. :-) I don't pay much attention to sports, to be honest. Now if they were playing on brooms with lightsabers and phasers, that would be a different story. ;-)

Happy Sunny Day to you! Monopoly monies :) Watching my Seahawks and it is a close game.

By Mac_Man on Sep 12, 2014 at 5:43 PM

Yeah, but you've probably been more prolific than me as of late. I'm not here like I used to. It's kind of hard when you work a messed up schedule. :-p I'm not on FB as much as I used to be, either. I'm there an hour a day, tops. And I've had little time to devote to my blog, except on my days off...and that's when I'm not running around doing errands. :-/ And I'm neither grumpy nor snarky. I'm a warm fuzzy cuddly bag of cheerfulness and happiness. I'm so sweet. :-D I'm not big on snakes. They're cute in their own way, but I'm with you. There's no way I'd want one as a pet.

Longer than me. I started May 2010, so coming close to the 5 year mark. What's to deal with? - just your ordinary grumpy, snarky, nice guy LOL Snake handling - my dream job I really don't have a fear of them like a lot of people do and have handled garter snakes to get them out of the lawn and away fro the mower. But not real cuddly so would not be my "pet" of choice along with any reptile.

By Mac_Man on Sep 9, 2014 at 3:49 PM

Yes, because I'm so hard to please. :-) JK. Yeah. Hard to believe I've been here 5+ years already. So many people have come and gone for various reasons. It's nice having someone who appreciates your rather unique sense of humor, so much thanks for hanging in there dealing with me. :-D Oh, yeah. She's my spirit animal. :-) Oh. please. It's like it never ended. The crazies are getting worse every year. o_O That's why I'm trying to find something a little less stressful. I hear they're looking for people to de-venom cobras. Sounds right up my alley. :-)

Always glad when I can give you a chuckle McM. One of my oldest frens on here. You are on a Grumpy cat kick - constipation a good snark :) I imagine tourist season will start soon your way,

By Mac_Man on Sep 7, 2014 at 6:23 AM

Oh, now you've gone and done it. :-) Thanks for the laugh.

By Sylviag on Sep 6, 2014 at 7:17 PM

Here ya go. Make you lots of monies LOL

By Mac_Man on Sep 6, 2014 at 6:04 PM

Now, now, now. Don't give me any ideas. :-) That's good. I'm usually bad with dates. Some are easy to remember, some I forget.

By Sylviag on Sep 6, 2014 at 12:25 AM

Great cosume idea! Maybe carry a light saber in case anyone gets ou of line :) For sure they won't forget their anniversary dae. That's why Bryan picked St. Patrick's Day (plus he is half Irish). I can usually count on a "Happy Anniversay" from him without a reminder.

By Mac_Man on Sep 4, 2014 at 5:26 PM

You're welcome. :-) Yes, it will be. Most everybody will just be down for the weekend. They're getting married on Halloween. Everybody will be leaving Saturday (those that are driving) or Sunday (the fliers). As far as I know, the wedding will be at whatever church they're currently attending. Not sure about the reception. It's going to be "costume optional", so I'm going as the scariest thing I can think of. Myself. :-)

By Sylviag on Sep 3, 2014 at 9:14 PM

Thanks for the birthday wishes :) Wow, that will be like a family reunion. Where will the wedding and recepiton be?

By Mac_Man on Aug 30, 2014 at 5:28 PM

Thanks kindly. :-) No, I was not aware of that. I'm gonna have to scope it out while I'm perusing the intertubes.

By Sylviag on Aug 29, 2014 at 5:35 PM

LOLCat "2d look" FP congrats! Not sure if you are aware that over Labor Day weekend they are featuring older classic FPs. This was featured:

By Mac_Man on Aug 29, 2014 at 3:26 PM

Thank you. <3 Hope you had a Meowy Purrday. *hugs*

By Sylviag on Aug 29, 2014 at 1:01 PM

Heartfelt hugz

By Mac_Man on Aug 28, 2014 at 3:05 PM

Hi, back. :-) Yep. Lots going on. The whole family will be in town. My niece and her family will be staying with us. We only have the two bedrooms, so they'll be sleeping on the pull-out in the living room. My sister is only going to be in town for the weekend, so she's staying in a hotel. Same for my brother-in-law. His mother and sister-in-law are coming, too. I'm guess they're going to do the same thing. I don't feel any wiser, but I do feel older. LOL. Speaking of which, a little birdy told me it's your birthday tomorrow. Hope you have a happy one. Just don't pig out on the ginormous cake, okay? :-) Glad to hear you enjoyed yourself at the wedding. Hope all is well in Sasquatch Country. :-) Catch you later.

By Sylviag on Aug 27, 2014 at 3:43 PM

Well hello there! Lots of family going ons for you. Sounds like a fun time for all. Great Uncle times 2 now - feel any wiser :) That's a lotta people in your place. Do you have spare bedrooms? We attended son's youngest half-bro's wedding at Lake Almanor, CA just a few weeks ago. One of those destination weddings where more people accepted the invite than they ever expected cuz it is such a beautiful lake and area to stay.

By Mac_Man on Aug 27, 2014 at 3:36 PM

You must be psychic. I was thinking about you the other day. :-) I'm doing okay, more or less. Working like a dog. Looking forward to the end of October. Got family coming down for my youngest nephew's wedding. My niece, her husband, and my great-nephew will be staying with us for a week. And I'll be a great-uncle again sometime in February 'cause she's pregnant again. Other than that, not much going on here. How have you been, besides busy that is?

By Sylviag on Aug 27, 2014 at 12:58 AM

Been way too long since we touched base. Busiest summer ever for me. How have you been?

By Mac_Man on Jun 11, 2014 at 3:01 PM

No party, but I did some happy dancin'. :-) We've been here five years and never got too chummy-chummy with any of the neighbors. Most of them don't last too long. About the only people that were here when we moved in is the older Hispanic couple that live next door. WE say hello when we see each other, but that's about it. As for the poison, I'm greedy. I'll take them all. :-) Enjoy your road trip. Hope you have fun. I'll be warping in and out, so hope to catch you when I'm in this solar system. See you later.

By Sylviag on Jun 9, 2014 at 10:04 PM

You threw them a "Glad you're outta here" party of course :) We have made it a habit not to get too friendly with any neighbors becaue if there is a falling out, you're stuck with them. Just like to be on good neighbor talking terms. Sending you a bucket of ice with some chilled whiskey, or bourbon, or vodka or tequila - pick your poison :) Getting ready this week for our road trip. I know I will forget something, but not like we're going to the Himalayas - always a store nearby. TTYL

By Mac_Man on Jun 9, 2014 at 5:11 PM

Hiya. Yeah, I'm doing okay. More or less. :-) Finally got rid of those annoying neighbors. They moved out last week. Thank goodness. *throes confetti* The weather's been brutal. Hot and humid. Today's the first day it stormed in a while, but it didn't help. :-p Oh. I never heard of that game. I guess not having any kids around is the reason why. As long as their having fun, I guess that's what matters the most. Hope you're doing well. Been working screwy hours, so I haven't been here much. Catch you later.

By Sylviag on Jun 8, 2014 at 10:27 PM

Hiya, hope you had a good weekend and have a good week ahead. We watch girls play fast pitch all day (our gdau plays) and some of the odd rules they have for tournament play in that age bracket (13-15). For the first 3 innings they have a mercy rule where if a team gets 5 runs, the side is retired. I guess they figure if one team gets ahead by 20 points the other team is not going to have a lot of incentive to play :)

By Mac_Man on Jun 2, 2014 at 3:39 PM

Yes, there is. I miss it. And your right. The winter's up there are brutal. :-p That, I don't miss. The only time I ever "roughed it" was when I was in the service. About the only luxury item we had at some places were port-a-potties. Hardly a stay at the Ritz-Carlton. :-) I don't know how they crunch the numbers. I only hope they're right. But then again, all it takes is one to mess up your day. o_O Thanks. Have a good week yourself.

By Sylviag on Jun 1, 2014 at 10:48 PM

That's some pretty country up north. Last time we came back from Germany when I was 16 we flew into NY and picked up our car which had been shipped a month earler and drove to Ft. Lawton KS via the northern tier to include upstate NY and the Great Lakes which we had never seen before. I bet the winters are maybe not so much fun though :) We don't rough it anymore either and have a 20 foot RV. Did many, many yers of tenting so have paid my dues :) I did see on the news about the low hurricane number this year. Wonder what data they use to extrapolate that. Have a good week.

By Mac_Man on May 31, 2014 at 6:55 PM

Yeah, but I had stuff that needed to be done. Oh, well. I have more time off coming to me. Glad to hear you had a good time camping. I miss sitting around the fire. We did it when we were kids when my grandparents had their trailers. It wasn't a "roughing it" experience. We had electricity and running water, but it was out in the country, so there was that. Plus we got to take nice rides through western Massachusetts and upstate New York. Yeah, we've had bad storms every day this week practically. They're predicting a quiet 'cane season this year, but that remains to be seen. It's been ten years since we got hit hard. Hope you're doing okay. Catch you later.

By Sylviag on May 30, 2014 at 9:46 PM

Doing nothing is a good thing. Time to recharge the batteries and just be lazy cuz you want to be. We went cmaping over Memorial Day weekend with family and friends on a high mountainlake Was really beautful. Still getting rid of the camp fire smell :) Are you getting hit by that rain deluge? Looks like it was hitting the north part hard. And Ihear it is the official start of hurricane season - oh joy. Hoping no really bad ones this year.

By Mac_Man on May 29, 2014 at 2:48 PM

Not long enough. o_O I didn't want to go back. Not much happened. My only real plans were quashed. I was supposed to go see Godzilla with one of my friends, but he bailed on me with no explanation. S'alright, though. It's not like this never happened before. :-/ So, how are you doing?

By Sylviag on May 28, 2014 at 11:37 PM

How was vacay?
