This is a photo of my dog Penny, the day after her surgery. She had an enlarged and cancerous spleen. There was no guarantee if the cancer had spread. She wasn't eating. The options were to have her put down, or try for a surgery where a good outcome with slim. We knew there was no choice but to go for the surgery. We were told the risks since she is almost 14 years in age and signed the DNR (Do Not Resuscitate) if something went wrong during surgery. We got a call that afternoon that it was a success, the spleen looked ready to rupture and was removed and the rest of the organs were checked with no visible…

Decided it was time to step up my fitness game and get outside and do some trail running.  I've been eating well, but my weight loss has stalled and been stagnant for a month or two now.  I'm going to try and keep better track of my caloric intake but also add in some light cardio to go with my current weight lifting routine. Regretfully it has been getting darker earlier and earlier.  Might need to start bringing a head lamp?  Or maybe run early in the morning?  Yeah, probably not that.  I'm not exactly a morning person.  Clocks change soon...  Will make some decisions then.

I honestly have not been in years... I once upon a time had my yearly range membership and was shooting 100 rounds ever Saturday and reloading my own ammo, to not going in over 5 years. So when my neighbor asked me if I wanted to go to the range, I jumped at the chance to go back. It was amazing how little changed there - but how much it was still perfect. We shot a couple boxes of ammo each. I brought my XDS 45 and he brought his 9mm he wanted to practice shooting. Shooting Range I'll be honest, I've never embeded a video on this site before, so let's see if this works! And no video. I…

The horse shoe pits that I put together some time ago, have been a big hit in the neighborhood on Thursday nights. I can't say any of us are that good or even keep track of scores, but it has been a great excuse to get together and enjoy each other's company in this time when most people are stuck at home. As the summer is winding down, darkness is descending earlier. So we find ourselves on my deck earlier and earlier. The prior week we decided to forgo the entire horse show throwing charade and just met up at the deck for drinks and food! And of course Cigars!!! It isn't the horse shoes. So don't feel the need…

Life is good Stocks are up, my weight is down... Having a cigar and enjoying today. Funny thing is, everyone loves the photo but no one understands the difference. Two hands!!! Took me far too many tries to set the camera up just right and snap a timed photo. Enjoy life!

Our renovations are finally complete and we officially have the place fully rented with income coming in. BeforeAfter Before After The renovations have really come along nicely, fully completed, and the unit is now rented. The other tenant was away for a few weeks so we took that opportunity to redo the bathroom there as it was needed. Now with the house fully rented the LLC's bank account is growing rapidly and it is time to look for a second duplex or single family home to rent. Will post more about that one later, but wanted to have an update. Butcher Block Counter Top New Floor and Paint No more wall paper and new carpet In all we probably put…
