This is my nephew's label for the beer he brews. I hope it tastes better than some of the Polish beers I've tasted.

Your sister would be jealous of my baby blue bike

It rides nice and is very quiet.
My new blue Crosscheck is all finished at Midtown. I just need to catch the 14 bus and pick it up. Most of the parts off my old bike were salvaged with the exception of a set of new tires. Pictures will be posted on EWTN this afternoon.

Mrs painted the bathroom last week. Brown is the "in" color and who am I to argue.

Monday, September 26, 2011

Hey, let's hear it for the City Of Richfield who released me without an ankle monitor to live the rest of my life as a free man.

Mrs enjoyed the shit out of her week off. And who wouldn't?

And to everyone who contacted me yesterday to tell me the Packers were beating the Bears: Eat A Bag Of Shit. You Suck.

Fridays - Joe Mauer vows to return in 2012 with different walk-up music

My mother made that stocking cap.
Keep the shitting to a minimum.
I love the Twins campy song...'Cheer for the Minnesota Twins today...'
I checked to see if Carl had his wallet on him.
Get that fucker in the hoodie out of there.

I finally bought a ladder after almost 21 years of homeownership. It's an 8' fiberglass Werner, Steve Przeslicke model. Oh, we be paintin' and cleaning gutters and all kind of shit.

Mrs on eating fish: 'As long as it's cooked half way decent and they don't serve it with the fucking head still attached, it's ok'.

We're attending the Twins vs. Seattle Mariners game today. Yay, Stub Hub even though the tickets were 6 bucks a piece and the fees to deliver them to my computer were $10.20.

I'm off to Herbergers. Mrs plans on nailing down a big one. We've been to Home Depot twice in 4 days. In my absence, Vito is in charge.

Monday, September 19, 2011

In honor of all the great men of this family I spent part of the morning scraping old paint off the windows outside. However, I shall not be painting them Przeslicke gray which my Uncle Steve bought by the tanker truck load.

Much to Sickboy's chagrin my fantasy team is being held afloat by members of the Detroit Lions. I could be 2 and 0 if Eli Manning plays like Eli Manning.

Now that we've worked a solid 47 minutes on the house, it's time to watch a little baseball and enjoy a cup of coffee with the Mrs who has the week off.

Fridays - Medical Watch

My sister-in-law Carol hounded me to call the doctor's office to see what my blood work came back with so I did. My cholesterol total is 205 and the bad part is 160 which pisses me off because I was hoping for something over a thousand. My blood sugar is a little high so no more sweets for me. Ha ha, fuck that. I gave up drinking and smoking and if I have to give up sweets completely I'll just have Scanny run me over with his truck.

Miss Debbie is off next week so I'll be in full time entertaining mode. Look for footage of the dog, me and my lesbian neighbors performing Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat which just happens to be one of Debbie's favorites. Remember ladies, if you're going to make the old man go to a musical with you, don't choose Rent or he'll never go with you to another one. I've seen Showboat, Oklahoma (my favorite), Carousel, Fiddler On The Roof and last and definitely, Rent.

Roberto Clemente Day

I'm lucky enough to have seen Roberto Clemente play in person.
I rode through the U after coffee because the chaos is unbelievable. Walkers, cyclists, skateboarders and others all moving in a helter skelter fashion. The U of M cops were giving out free donuts at the west end of the Washington Ave Bridge but I passed because I'd like to lose a pound and a half by Halloween.

Down to 38 degrees tonight, huh? It could be time to harvest the crops except for the experimental pepper which I'll be moving inside on cold nights.

I wore a hoody and schpants today so I wouldn't be chilly on my bike ride. Mrs had a pot luck so she was humpin' a lot of shit, troop. I drove her.

Aaron took this picture but I can't tell what's broken on my old Crosscheck. Bad eyes.

Mrs is always profound but not usually profane. She's right. It sucks when you get older and all the shit your parents tell you comes out to be true. This doesn't apply to y'all under 40 because you know everything, don't you, sporty?

The nice guys at Surly made me a deal on a replacement frame which also included having to listen to 72 hours of Sov playing the banjo. So, we'll be taking all the salvageable parts off my old bike and putting them on this dreamboat. I've ordered new fenders since my foot had ripped off the front fender (toe overlap) and the rear fender was being held together with a wire tie. Air horn is still good as are the new bars and grip. Chain tensioner probably shot after 16,000 miles. We shall see.

I went to the doctor for the first time in quite a while so I wasn't overly surprised to weigh in at 266 lbs. Fat? You bet your ass, sporty. On the other hand, if you've recently had your pathlete ass punked on the Cedar Trail by a plump, old MF with a seriously f-ed up knee, maybe you're not all that and a bag of chips.

Tomorrow we go see the movie Contagion. Don't worry I'll wash my hands afterward.

Remember 9/11 by telling those closest to you how much you love them even if it seems awkward. The future's uncertain and the end is always near - The Doors.

Wednesday, September 7, 2011

Killed my Crosscheck today. Broke the frame by the drive side drop out. I picked it up on March 4, 2005 and rode it 16,384 miles. The boys at Midtown are checking if Surly will do anything.

LinkThat is one bad ass patch. Puppy looks like he needs a Snausage.

Once again breakfast at the Minneapolis Farmers Market was awesome. The Tollefson Family knows pork. Swine, my brother?

Mrs scored some free Twinkies tickets for Monday night against the White Sox. Pretty decent tickets, too. I'll be bringing my $3 garage sale first baseman's mitt so I can hold the runner on.

Wait just a f-ing minute! The new Chicago Velodrome will be on the near south side so 'at least there won't be any north side douchebags'. Yeah, like the douchebaggery doesn't run rampant in Blaine.

Have a great weekend and watch out for quick slap tags to the balls if you go to Monday night's Twins game.

Has 10 years of war following 9/11 eliminated terrorism? I don't think we would have been so gung-ho if we had known we'd still be in Afghanistan 10 years later. Yeah, I have the picture up because of the dog. But the guy in that casket is never going to pet his puppy again and that's a big fucking price to pay.
