Let the Tailgating commence......

Wezul and I have had a busy Tailgating week.  On Thursday, we were out in the rain, cheering the Pack onto victory against FSU.  All that luck has landed us back at #23 in the AP poll and #25 with the USA Today Poll.

Last night, we had our first hockey tailgate of the 2010-2011 Hockey season.  The game of choice was the Hurricanes against the Penguins.  The Penguins won 3-0.  :)  Much to everyone's dismay...well...almost everyone.  :)  It was a good mix of people.  The paternal M unit took pics.  We can't wait to see them.  Maybe at some point they may make it to the web...or not!  Haha!!!

Home sweet home!

What a whirlwind weekend, crazy crazy crazy...

At the last minute, I changed my mind about staying in TN.  I decided to take in the concert and then come home.  My better half and I have differences of opinion over why...bottom line for me...i didn't feel comfortable that I felt he felt uncomfortable that I would be spending my time in another state by myself while he was completely cut off from the world.  I know this is crazy, because I travel for work all the time, but for me, if I feel Wezul isn't 100% behind something I'm doing...I tend not to do it...It isn't his fault, but one has to do what one feels is right at the time.

Then, it didn't help Apple released their new Macbook Air that I desire so....

So, here goes my plan...go to the concert with concert buddy guy...or as long ago declared by WH...hahaha....spend the night in Winston-Salem...come home.

Detour #1...our drop off point is "ONLY an hour from Winston-Salem".  OK...OK...I'll still drop you guys off.  So Wezul, WH, and I head to Winston-Salem...for some partying...and "old geezer hotel camping out time".

Detour #2...after a great time at the concert...all three of us get up, eat breakfast, and put the coordinates into Garmin.

Detour #3...after triple checking the coordinates...the GPS takes us to the wrong location in the wrong direction.  Some how the coordinates "changed".

Detour #4...once we are heading back in the right direction...we discover that the drop off point is NOT an hour away...but more like 2.5 hours away....

Detour  #5...We finally arrive at the drop off point.  By this time, I realize there is no way I'm driving back to Clayton.  So, I revert back to my initial plan...stay in Johnson City, TN.  But only for 1 night...

Detour #6...After checking becomes evident...I will be in TN for more than 1 night...let's try 3 nights.

I stayed at the same hotel that Wezul and I stopped at when we had that bad snow storm on our way to Iowa last year.  They were just as helpful and amazingly nice as the first visit.  So if you are in the area, this is definitely the best place to stay...Courtyard Johnson City.

Gotta love when life has it's own plan.

The Dirty Heads

No, it isn't because Wezul and I forgot to buy shampoo. They are a band from CA. I first got introduced to them in Denver when they opened for Sublime. After returning from CO, I immediately downloaded their album. It has immediately became one of my favs. Fate intervened over the past few weeks that enabled me to go to the concert last night to see Sublime and the Dirty Heads. Wezul didn't go to the show. I went with a good buddy. In fact, the same buddy who took me the first time to see Sublime and the Dirty Heads in CO. Love my hubby for letting me go!

My concert going buddy and Wezul are sleeping high on the mountain tonight! Let's hope the chance of rain begins to evaporate.

Our Baby Has Grown Up...what a sad day....

Friday, was a BIG day for us.  On our way to REI in Raleigh, Wezul noticed we were about to hit a big milestone with our Camry....

That's right, our 4.5 year old Camry, hit 100,000 miles...we bought her in April 2006...she was a brand spanking new 2007 model...

You are looking at the toll of me working in Raleigh and living in Clayton...the Camry has kept me safe from 1 deer attack, taken us back and forth to Iowa and various other locales, and has been very reliable...

Here's to the next 100K we hope to put on her...what?!?...think we are crazy?!?...we got her paid off....we are keeping her until the wheels fall off..............

We're home!

Even though we just returned home, Wezul's mind is already on one of his next adventures!

In case it isn't obvious, he is trying on his much needed hiking socks. Hiking 40+ miles - you will need more than plain old white gym socks.

On Watch

Everything is find and dandy @ Jordan Lake near Buoy 12!  My buddy the bald eagle has a careful eye on the Haw River Arm flowing into the lake.  However, the female boat driver had taco pizza on the brain and refused to turnaround to get a picture of Captain Bald Eagle...
