Summer update

Our well has been working great since my brother Jon put the new pressure tank in. That is one less thing to worry about. We have a man coming over to do some small repairs to the house. I have gotten out of doing any kind of major repair. We have even hired someone to take care of the back yard, although I still do the smaller front yard.

We didn’t do anything special for the 4th, just cooked burgers on the grill. My son Jason and I went to the Military Aviation Museum in Creeds. I have been before and I thought he would enjoy going. We took lots of pictures and had pizza later at a diner in Pungo.

I arranged for a pet sitter for Max while we are on vacation. It will cost 34 dollars a day for  2 visits but Max is worth it. I won’t feel so guiltiy while we are on vacation in Hawaii. Still cant’t wait to go to Hawaii. It should be a memorable vacation.

Last  but not least I took a hike on the Dismal Swamp Canal trail in Chesapeake. I walked a mere 4 miles but it was very enjoyable and I say some wildlife. I miss the days when my ex-wife and I used to hike  all the time but those days are long gone. Teresa is not into outdoors things much,  other  than swimming in the pool. That is it for now.

4th of July Weekend is upon us

I spent as much of the day as the weather would allow me cleaning up the yard for the 4th. My mother and my son will be coming over on the 4th for a cookout. As my mother is living in a nursing home I will have to pick her up but she lives in Chesapeake so it is not far. It will be nice to have them both over to enjoy a nice day together. I don’t get to see my son Jason very often as he seems to work all the time. When I talked to him the other day he told me he had been working in West Virginia setting up a disaster recovery center for the U.S. Coast Guard. He works for a contractor and most of their work is with the Coast Guard and their financial centers.

I got out to Kroger’s to pickup the necessary supplies for tomorrow. The menu consists of hamburgers, hotdogs, brautwurst, potato salad, baked beans, watermelon and all the fixings. There will be soda to drink as well as Dos Equis beer. For desert we will have Louisiana Crunch cake. Sounds pretty good to me. The weather promises to be hot which is perfect 4th of July weather. We have a nice pool to jump into, food and drink, family and maybe some free fireworks later. Who could ask for anything more.
