Boy Howdy. There's nothing like a full day of hanging "shade cloth" over the outside patio's to remind you that you aren't twenty years old anymore. I'm surprised that I'm actually able to type at this point, as my arms currently feel like slightly warm jello combined with a toothache. Both index fingers have blisters on them from the "bungee balls" (let's see if Harvey can resist commenting about those) that are used to hold them up. I'm too young to feel this old.

Luckily, I had to make dinner when I got home. (/sarcasm) It seems like I'm the only one in the household who has a decent recipe for crappie, so I got "elected" to fry us up a mess. It was Damn good, and everyone enjoyed it, so I've got no complaints.

So now I've finally sat down, and have begun the intake of this evenings libation. Ahhh, bourbon and beer..."It's not just for breakfast, anymore." I invariably have the TV on when I'm sitting at my pc, and I just realized that there's something you folks need to know about me. Currently playing on my idiot box...WGN for Chicago Cub's baseball.

I woke up one day about ywo year's ago, and realized that I'm a Cub's fan. I'm not sure if that makes me a bad person, but if it does, I don't care. I just Love rooting for an underdog. Even if they've had a few good years, they'll remain an underdog (just like the Red Sox) until they win another pennant. Maybe this will happen sometime in my life, but a part of me hopes it doesn't. I don't want to have to try and pick another team to hate to love.

I guess you could call me a "foul weather fan."

You had a mess of fried crappie and you didn't invite me? I'm hurt...
I forgive you, however, since you're a Cubs fan. I too am 99% scar tissue....

If I was a baseball fan at all, I'd be rooting for the cubbies. Currently all my scar tissue is tinted Bears Blue & Orange.

I have resisted... mostly because I don't know what bungee balls are, although I think I had a bad case of it after my hernia surgery, and...
