and it's on.

so i'm back... round two for summer of george, baby...

i've been off for a week, officially, and my apologies for not posting yet. although i'm not sure who reads this besides myself and marc. does john even? or annie? not sure who's going to post this summer.
anyways, great week so far. golf, poker, running camp, cubs brawl... things are starting off nicely. already a little busy this summer... got a daughter now, who happens to be the cutest of the cute. but i'm dealing with a disc issue in my back. hm. kinda feel like an old man-- a kid and a back problem. funny emoticon here.

got a poker table for father's day. awesome. first father's day also saw the family go gamble on horses, where i feel i made a very dad-esque move in bypassing traffic with some inside, back entrance knowledge. it's just what dad's do, i guess. wasn't as lucky as marc and others at the track though. shoulda bet my money on the bobtail nag. somebody bet on the bay.

then i put in a new mailbox today.. another dad move there. but alas... i also got to relax and get some music stuff done. here was my view in the basement all afternoon:

and a screen shot of the work in progress...
i think my new thing this summer may be to make stuff interesting... how about a reason to read..? besides wanting to know the intimate details of my summer, of course. what about a riddle? riddles are fun, right? here goes...
a black dog stands in the middle of an intersecton of two black cross streets.
the dog is licking his rump, as most dogs do when they're bored.
none of the street lights are working due to a power failure. probably a small, broken down town like bourbonnais.
a car with two broken headlights drives straight towards the dog. again, probably bourbonnais, so the headlight thing makes sense.
BUT NO WORRIES: the driver veers off in time to avoid hitting the poor doggie.
so what's the question...? how could the driver have seen the dog in time?
alright... more soon. for now, i'm dog tired. ha! but that's not a clue. sorry, losers.

Hailing from Bourbonnais, I have my standard issue small town Night Vision Goggles in my car at all times. I guess you rich guys in the close suburbs can expect to always have headlights and streetlamps operating, but in Bourbonnais the local government plans for these types of events, otherwise there'd be lots of dead black dogs.

Hailing from Ogden, I can easily see during the day, much like the driver of the car.
