Second Wind

Posted: June 4, 2011 in life, music, travel, Uncategorized, work

I have been away for a long time. I think I have lost most of my friends here. I will miss them but I don’t blame them for moving on. When a blog goes dead you don’t stick around. I understand that.

I’ve been having a hard time with my job lately. I don’t even have the energy right now to tell you exactly why that is except to say that I am never home anymore. I’m either driving across Texas or flying to some other state to meet with people I don’t like. I pretty much live in hotels, motels and airports these days. I always get home on the weekends but I’m too wiped-out to do anything.

I found something tonight that made me very happy. Believe it or not, this made me feel better. I don’t care what anyone thinks. I miss the music of the 70s.

One more time but with stop/start animation like the Gumby and Pokey show.

The Lunatics in our Aquarium

These are not pet store turtles. My daughter Gabby scooped them out of some lake around here. At that time they were about the size of a fifty cent piece. They are now over 6 inches long, not counting the head or tail and I have no reason to believe that they are going to stop growing.

This is an 80 gallon tank. That’s big. Chinese restaurant big. These two turtles are living a life of luxury. However, if they do get too big for it we will have to take them back to a lake or reservoir. I hope that doesn’t happen.

Pay rent
Do laundry
Find some half-assed decent clothes
Do an OCD walk through the apartment

I’m flying out of Houston tomorrow at 7:05 AM. I hope and I mean hope I can get up at 4:00 am. I’m going to Los Angeles for a long stretch of work related hell. I don’t even know when I’m coming back.

“To the gregmobile!”

A few years ago I installed a water treatment system at an Embassy Suites hotel in Jacksonville, Florida. Thanks to the city of Jacksonville the damned thing clogged up. Now I have to go back over there and unclog our equipment.

I have to fly out of Houston at 9:55 AM tomorrow which means I have to leave home at 7:00 AM. Not a good Monday morning. Not the way I want to start the week.

When I get there I have to take all of this completely apart, fix it and put it all back together again. Those tanks are 7 feet tall and that piping is all 4 inch.

Such class

What an obnoxious old toad. I was glad to see “Bud” leave Houston when he did. I can’t help but wonder if his 80 something year old mind has progressed to a stage of dementia and all his “yes men” keep his bottomless glass full of high end liquor.

I will admit that I laugh my ass off every time I see this. I wanted to post this while I could because I don’t think it’s going to be up on the web for very long.

I really didn’t need that ten dollar bill anyway. It was only taking up space in my wallet.

I have wanted a digital camera for a long, long time. I just haven’t been able to get one because of the steady bombardment of bills and the even higher cost of of a 15 year old daughter. About a week ago I was in a CVS (it’s a pharmacy on all four corners of every intersection here in Houston) when I saw a miniature digital camera for $10.00.

Of course I was skeptical. I knew it was a piece of shit but I bought it anyway. I had hope. The specs were impressive and it came with a download disc and a USB cord. It does everything the package said it would do (including video) but the images are pretty much useless as you will see here.

My desk- taken from my bed

My desk, taken from the floor. Check out that bitchin’ wall map of Houston.

This is our monkey. His name is Lewis.

I make him pay rent but when he can’t come up with the money I shake him down. Literally.

He usually . . . Lewis . . . Lewis . . . ?

Goodnight, asshole. Believe it or not, this is a business in California.

I love the Forties
Gotta love the pentatonic scale too. Can anyone tell me what movie this is? I’m not quizzing anyone. I’m just asking because I do not know.
