No major messes in the yard, just some additional clutter. I'll have to get the leaf blower out again next week and do some blasting to clean up the driveway and walks, but that's easy enough. I saw the Giants' score but figured I'd not mention it to you as you'd no probably already seen it and said a few choice words. That Spurs/OKC series will definitely be a good 'un. Will you be rooting for Oklahoma? The sun's out and it's really nice. Maybe those storms they predicted for later won't materialize. That'd be good! I saw the big blowups at the Trump rallies yesterday. I thought it was funny he had to sneak in and out!

I thought Opus and May the mayfly would be a good choice for the next month. =) Wow, 22 years That really is a shame, losing a big beauty like that. Taking Garnett before the 'Hawks could grab him made it a doubly good pick!

Yeah, it was a mess here, but it could have been worse. That really sucks about your rose bush! And just when you'd gotten them all in place again. Can you stick it in a pot and see if it will grow back, or is it not even worth it? Chuck probably has some opinions about the draft but I haven't paid it all that much attention. I did see the Tunsil thing. How weird, and stupid, was that?!! You're right about the hacker tho. Miami said they were already aware of the incident and I think it was a good move to go ahead and take the kid. I would certainly hope he's learned his lesson, dumb s**t. I DID see that about Walton in the paper this morning! I'd imagine it'll take a few years before he can get the team the way he wants it. I hope he does well, too. Just not THAT well. =)

Well, the storms are finally gone, for now at least. We might get more later this afternoon. The power flickered off and on several times yesterday but just long enough to mess up the alarm clock. It went off early this morning for a while too. I think that was from the wind. At least that was the worst thing that happened. I see Portland won and the Giants got pounded. Ouch!

I've never been too fond of strawberry shortcake but I sure could eat a big bowl of chocolate dipped strawberries with nooo trouble.. That's a good idea your mom had about the Manhattans. Worth a shot maybe. I'm about ready to hit the sack and it's only 9:00. That's what a 3 am wakeup and no nap will get ya. Just a ball of fire! =)

I could do strawberry, especially with Hershey's syrup on it, but nothing would ever make me buy spumoni. BLEH! I managed to stay awake enough to only get two cartons, chocolate for Chuck and chocolate mint for me. That should last us until my next trip. =) Too bad that medication isn't doing much good. Probably good that it's keeping his alcohol consumption down at least. A 3-shot Manhattan would probably knock me on my butt. Of course, he's bigger than me and probably could hold it better but still, I hope he doesn't go stronger. Falling really could be serious! Do you think your mom can keep him in check?

Going 7 games would be great. I guess you can always hope, even if it makes you a little sick to do so. =) Sleep walking is probably a bad idea, not only for the bad dreams but I'd probably end up with 20 cartons of ice cream and nothing else. I can't stand to watch much of the draft either. There's always a draft grading of each team in the paper after it's over and I keep that to help with our FF football picks. And even that isn't always so helpful as they always miss some hidden gems that go in the later rounds. I have a feeling you'll come up with a good Plan B. How did the doctor's visit go with your dad?

The Giants weren't the only ones who went crazy yesterday. The Dubs made a pretty good statement themselves! Wow! I'm not a big fan of pork loin roasts either. I prefer a good beef roast myself. I woke up at 3 this morning and never was able to get back to sleep. I'll pay for that later, especially since today's Wally World day. Tomorrow will be stormy so I can't put it off. Maybe I can just sleep walk my way through it. =)

I don't think I'll leave that avatar up very long. It is a little depressing. We had a closet door come off it's tracks, too. We had the house painted soon after that and the painters put it back on. Didn't think much about it at the time but after hearing your frustrations I'm glad Chuck didn't have to deal with it. He'd tried once or twice and finally gave up. Ah, pork roast tonight and lasagna roll ups last night! Nice! I only got one Castle in before Chuck got home. Sometimes I wish those guys would play poker longer. =) Haven't seen Rocky since the other night but that's his usual MO - skip a few nights and then reappear. Fortunately the flying squirrels have plenty to eat this time of year. I do miss watching their Keystone Kops antics tho.

No telling what'll happen. Just have to wait and see. In the meantime, there's tonight's game to get through. Most of the achey is gone. What's left is what I usually have to deal with and I hardly even notice it - until I go to Wally World again at least. =) I sure will be glad when the NFL draft gets going tomorrow. I'm tired of all the blah blah blah. So are you grilling something tasty for dinner tonight?

Just the symbolism of showing up with a chainsaw would have been great. Moving to the Lakers would definitely be a challenge but also a great opportunity to build his own team, especially after seeing first hand what worked so well with the Dubs. Sounds like a pretty good day for you today. I hope it ends well!

What, you thought Kerr would cut the statue in half and give Walton his due? Hah! Wouldn't that have been something? Sounds like quite a moving ceremony, even without the chainsaw. You sure couldn't blame Walton if he went to the Lakers. So what's on your agenda today at the folks' place? We dodge a bullet last night as far as weather is concerned. When we went to bed it looked like a huge wall of storms was headed right for us but by the time it got here it was barely a shower. Whew!

Ah, I see! I knew Kerr had missed a big chunk of games but sure didn't know the rest of the story. That's pretty nice that Walton got a little recognition! Granted, he had a great group of players, but apparently he would make a find head coach himself, regardless!

We're the same way about losing stuff in the cupboards. I hate to think what our pantry would look like if we had one. Probably a good thing that we don't. Good for Kerr! I think that's great! Not only a great coach but a really neat guy. I don't know anything about the other coaches but getting any votes at all with "no wins" sounds pretty strange!

Well yeah, that's a lot of shelving all right. Just think of all the clutter you can accumulate! Injuries during the playoffs are tough, no doubt. The Dubs are fortunate to have such good backups. Still, the sooner Steph gets back the better. I worked with a whiner at the bank for several years and had the seat right next to her. Boy, that was tough. It was all I could do to not whine about her when I got home every day. =)

They certainly should have had a pantry box! 8x6 sounds large until you consider all the shelving. I don't actually whine around Chuck. If I do, it's a joke and Chuck just laughs or ignores me. He would have more to whine about than me, anyway with all of his physical woes. I see the Giants won - yay!

Well, we all have brain farts as we get older. That was a rather stinky one for you. Don't forget the bathrooms this next go-round. =) Feeling much better today, tho I think I'll whine about aches and pains for another day or so and maybe by then Chuck will be agreeable to that masseuse, especially if I let him get one too. You're right about the Blazers of course. Gotta see how that plays out. Chuck's off to poker and it's my night to catch up on Castle. Oh boy!

What? No pantry??!! Heaven forbid! For someone who loves cooking and baking as much as you do, that's a major omission all right. Good thing it won't cost you anything but time to fix that. I expected to have some acheys. I really should do exercises to strengthen my back muscles. I'd probably just pull something tho and end up in worse shape. Just have to chalk it up to getting older. Steph has a Grade 1 MCL sprain and will be reevaluated in 2 weeks.. That's going to make the Clippers series tougher. They're thinking he'll be back in time for Game 5 of that one.

That's got to be one of the very few products advertised on TV that actually does what it promises. They showed a lot of the third quarter highlights on ESPN this morning so at least I got to see those. No yard work for me today. My back and knee are both still achy from lugging those flower pots around yesterday. But I got everything done that I wanted plus all the clean up, so I'm good for a while. Good thing too, because it'll be another week of off and on rain.

Whoa - you finished the grout AND tackled the spice cabinet? Come over here, lemme feel your forehead. Sumpin ain't right. So, I finish my shower and get to the game in time to see the score is tied and Steph goes down. Onoes! Next thing I know I've fallen asleep on the couch, only to wake up and see the Dubs have a 25-point lead. Wait a minute - I must be dreaming. Wow! 21 3-pointers - Double Wow! MRI today for Steph. Dubs fans everywhere are holding their collective breaths. As for the Giants - another let-down. =(
