Normally I'm with ya on the "I want it now!" thing but there are those weeks when TV is just showing reruns and it's good to have a backup supply of good shows to watch. Jessica Alba, eh? Wow, I wonder how long that would have lasted. And Aniston as Kate? GAG! Sure glad that didn't happen! Speaking of Weatherly, we've watched a couple Bulls now and aren't very impressed. Oh, poor Becky!! And just when you thought all was well with her eating those berries. Poor you, too, for having that mess to clean up. Will you have to go out and pick up berries again or is her supply running out? I'm not sure she'll relate her tummy troubles to having eaten them. Chuck's doing well with his new eating habits. He's cut back on the bad stuff quite a bit, even buying Michelob Ultra Light beer so he can still enjoy one or two on football Sundays. He needs to up his veggie level more, but that will be a slower process. We'll know more when he goes back to the doc in December and has whatever that number is checked again. Having a brain fart and can't remember what the stoopy thing is called now. Doh!

I've been around deer hunters most of my life but I've never understood how they can take such joy in killing an animal they find so impressive either. Sheesh, I feel bad when a butterfly runs into my car's windshield. Hunting to put meat on the table is one thing. Hunting merely to brag about killing the biggest buck around is another. Unfortunately, that's what it's all about in large part part any more and that's the part that bugs me. At least the majority of hunters do it legally, which helps keep the population in check. I've watched two Blacklists in a row before, so I can relate. Even with the teaser at the end I like to space them out tho, just to have something to look forward to. =)

So much for the Cubs and Dubs. Cleveland's pitchers were amazing. I don't know what happened to the Dubs - just a lackluster performance I guess, while the Spurs came ready to play. Wow, I don't think I could watch 4 Blacklists in a row! My head would probably 'splode! Spader is fantastic. It felt good to get that yard work done yesterday, mentally at least. Physically I must have overdone it as my knee and lower back hurt all afternoon. At least I recovered enough by bedtime to get a decent night's sleep. You would think I'd have learned to pace myself by now.

Not a good sign that the dad is loud, too. I truly feel bad for ya. Glad Becky can enjoy her berries with no side effects! Seems like if they were going to bother her, you would have seen it by now. The Dubs game isn't on until 9:30 here, dammit! I probably won't make it to half time. I'll be pulling for the Cubs, too. I got a good bit of yard work done this morning. Got my limb cutters and hacked a good number of dead limbs down, plus a good number of weedy undergrowth. I ran into a new vine growing in the side yard next to the driveway that's covered in nasty little needle-sharp stickers. The leaves are small and kind of pretty so I hadn't paid any attention to it, until I grabbed a strand and ended up with a bunch of little holes on my hand. I'd thought about wearing my gloves when I started but was too lazy to go in and look for them. What a doofus. At least they were small stickers and I didn't bleed for very long. =)

Well, I hope for your sake those kids grow up soon! That would drive me bonkers. So you gave up on the berries, eh? Can't say that I blame you. As long as they don't upset Becky's tummy there's probably no harm done. And they'll be gone soon. I wonder why the birds don't eat them. That would be the ideal solution. I remember watching Nantz talking about Palmer. Just one of a number of heart-warming stories about the man. It was nice to see that he truly was as great a human being as he seemed. I've always liked Nantz, too. I'm glad you're enjoying his book. Sure must be tough reading through the Alzheimer's stories. No miracle upset from our opponent last night - not even close. The top first place team won his match and scored over 100 pts, so we'll stay in second place. The other team lost, so now there are only the two of us at 6-1. Next week's looking bleak for us with 2 or our 3 RBs now fighting hamstring issues. RBs have been our strong suit. We'll need some of our receivers to come through with big games. Who knows? It could happen. This has been a good distraction for Chuck at least.

That soil on the concrete works out pretty well then! I see happy weeds in your future. I was wondering if the neighbors you were talking about were the ones with the screaming half the night kids. At least they have some redeeming qualities too, even if those don't quite cover the kiddie noise annoyance. Maybe you could get Trump to build a wall between your properties. That might cut down on the noise level somewhat. Even better if he gets the neighbors to pay for it. =) Chuck and I tootled around running errands today. It was a beautiful day for it, tho it did get a little too warm later this afternoon. Did Becky find some new berries to munch on?

Ooh, I did write Chargers, didn't I? Obviously I shouldn't write anything until I've finished at least one cup of coffee. I also forgot to mention how disgusting it would be if Cleveland actually did pick Sheen. Nice that you got a layer of good soil under all those leaves. Not so nice that it was on top of concrete. I'm sure those weeds will be thrilled. =) Turns out our opponent had several good players out yesterday. Plus they started Jamaal Charles at KC, who didn't play a single snap. I'm sure they weren't happy about that. They've been hanging onto him all season, waiting for him to get back on the field. Guess they'll have to wait a little longer. Boo hoo. What a nice neighbor you have there! I hope the fence looks good. I have a feeling it will.

You got a lot of work done yesterday morning! Is your arm sore this morning from working that saw? 4 inches is nothing to sneeze about. I think you should take the rest of the week off from yard labors to make sure you're well rested to tackle those leaves. We went ahead and put McCoy in our lineup yesterday and he managed 1.1 total points before his hamstring started acting up again and he went out of the game. Our other RB Tevin Coleman also pulled his hammie yesterday, so I don't know what we'll do next week if neither of those two can play. Regardless, somehow this week our opponent's team sucked worse than ours and it looks like we'll manage to pull one more win. He still has Lamar Miller tonight but the guy would have to have 34 points to beat us, and that happens about as often as a blue moon. I stayed up way past my bedtime last night to watch the Chargers/Cardinals game. That was a strange one, especially the ending!

they were upstairs - safe and far away. They have brekkie and then head back to bed. Evenings they come hang with me on my weekends. I think it's partially due to my office being upstairs as I work from home - so they are just across the hall during mmy work day. Weekends, they dont' re-adjust..

Charlie Sheen??!! That makes me want to throw up too. Pretty lame-o reasoning on the Buckeyes, Mister. =) I'm glad for Kris! As for the Hawgs, they looked like the Dawgs. That's funny about Becky! Are there a bunch more berries left to fall? If so, you might be hard pressed to keep them all cleaned up. I wouldn't think it would hurt anything if she got to munch a few. We're still trying to figure out whether to play McCoy, as he is going to play today but who knows how much. Also we've got Torrey Smith and Travis Benjamin who are playing but banged up. If we ever needed a crystal ball this would be the week!

Eh? What was that you said about the Buckeyes? And how 'bout them Loozerbacks! That was just ugly. Baseball, however, was mind blowing. I felt bad for Kershaw, especially since his defense didn't help matters any. I kept expecting them to turn it around, but the Cubs were were on fire. One thing I really enjoyed was watching the Cubs' fans. Whoever panned the crowd did a great job. I wonder what those crunchy little berries are that Becky likes so much. It reminds me of my sis's dogs stuffing themselves on pecans every year. Those things are really fattening and there's no end to them. I never did get much done in the yard, I tried to get the worst of the pine needles and leaves off the walks, only to watch more falling where I'd just swept. I finally just gave up. The balcony was much more enjoyable.

Responsibility is not only elusive, it also covers a broad spectrum of activities. Eating responsibly has never been big on my list of 'do's' either. Poor Chuck has to start worrying about that one now. I give the Aggies a better chance than most at beating Bama, but if I was to bet on it, I'd still have to go with Bama. I plan on heading outside and doing some yard cleanup. It's just too nice out to sit inside, even for that game. Chuck will just have to give me updates.

The forties were good for us, too. We'd finally settled down and matured into somewhat responsible adults. That's pretty wild about Jones. Sounds like he's lucky he finally hit on a scheme that turned out to be a winner. I suppose even the best families have to have a black sheep mixed in somewhere, or at least as in your case a rather dubious gray one. =) The McCoy situation is a tough one. Even if he plays, that hamstring could act up at any time. We have one of Atlanta's RBs, Tevin Coleman, we'll probably use instead. He's one of two RBs they use and has had some very good games, along with a couple of real duds. He's got an easy matchup against San Diego this week tho, so maybe he'll pull off another good one.
