Party weekend and other random things

The birthday and anniversary party was this weekend. It was more of a BBQ for friends, no gifts allowed type of thing. I spent most of the day on the grill making sure everyone got hot fresh burgers and the like, but I did blow out the candles on one of the 2 cakes we had.

We had over 50 people show up, I am still amazed I know so many people who appreciate/like me, I'm honestly not the most politically correct and I don't have a filter on my mouth. Apparently I'm not as bad as I imagine. One of the best moments was my friends 4 year old standing at the end of a table with his fork, shoveling cake into his mouth right from the cake itself! I laughed and said have fun once you get home and that sugar kicks in.

My drivers license debacle has been solved. While my license says it expires in 2013, the computer system said it expired a week ago. This was why I couldn't pass the background check and my license was 'invalid'. The lady at DMV was AMAZINGLY helpful... do they all attend crappy attitude seminars? There were 20 people ahead of me and 1 clerk working the counter, and as my luck would have it, most of the 20 people ahead of me didn't speak English very well). I left, found a different branch and was out in 90 seconds. I can't get my new pistol until my picture ID shows up next week (hopefully) but everything is all cleared up.

I finished reading Holding Their Own number 1 and 2 this weekend and started Half Past Midnight. I have Ashen Winter and The Founders on deck. I also noticed Atlas Shrugged part 2 is at the Theater, I'll see that this weekend sometime.

Crazy week ahead. I have a business meeting, wedding, promotion party for a friend in the Sheriffs office, pre dive trip party... I also have to pack for a week in Vegas AND pack for Mexico so I don't have to scramble the 1 night I'm in town before we fly out.

I also should get some work done.


  1. Glad you had a good party. Sorry we were 1500 miles away or we would have shown up!

    1. Thank you.
      I also owe you some bread as promised but it's going to hit the to do list for November.

      I forgot to mention in the cards and few gifts people weren't supposed to bring... I found a box of 9mm hollow points. There were certainly some LMI's at the party.
