Shoot I couldn't take it any more. Worked from home all week. Been to the store a couple of times but that was it. Today thought I would run to the lease and pull trail camera memory sticks and come back. Just wanted to see what has showed up since season ended. Got there and it was pouring and had been raining for a while by looks of all the water on the ground. Decided I didn't want to rut up the place trying to get to my cameras so turned around and drove home.

Was nice just to get out the house. Didn't hurt making a quick stop at Storms in Lampassas on the way out then DQ on the way back through Lampassas for a blizzard. Lot of hours spent outside the house with different scenery. I call that a success. Plus it kept the kids off electronics for a few hours.

You guys need to learn how to do it. I got out of Bed this Morning Butt Naked and haven’t had clothes on all Day. Can’t have Babies anymore but tried twice today. I Put some sweatpants and a T-Shirt on this Evening and I’m out in the Garage watching some good UFC reruns on ESPN and drinking some beers. Life is Good if you don’t watch the News all Day.

Worked on kids truck today. Been to parts store 4 times, Walgreens, and then stopped by Rudy’s for a few pounds of brisket. Tomorrow I’m just burning cedars. Go back to work Monday. Tired of all the paranoia.

So far I'm the opposite of this. Bars and restaurants are closed and I'm down over 7 pounds since last weekend. Wonder if they're related...

Very glad I have a small place to walk around on. My 11 acres is a whole lot better than a neighborhood street. I have been bored but did go to TSC. Also walked around the place chasing golf balls in the light rain and tonight we played board games.

Rain, no sports ( they did run a 2 year old golf tournament) really makes it bite pretty good. I’ll be at the fire department tomorrow so at least it shouldn’t be as boring

Interesting times- Gonna bust clay pigeons once the fog clears. Canít ever do too much of that!

Probably fire up the smoker this evening.

Funny thing is I did a lot of the house repairs over the winter. Thereís always things to do at the ranch. May spend a few nights out there.

Yesterday I smoked a couple of pork butts, looks like pulled pork sandwiches for the next several days, also put all of my tackle in my new boat ( which I have had since October ) just been putting it off. Today i think I will hand wash boat, it is pretty filthy from last trip out in the rain, also going to try and get my barn back in shape, i have crap scattered all over the place, probably will have a few adult beverages during all of this. I would go check on my restaurants but it is too depressing, carry out only, not too bueno.
