The coffee this morning is extra good. I am not sure why. This is just a typical day for me. I have scheduled a mystery shop in Louisa KY (picked up some good gas money) and am going out to see a band tonight.Nothing super spectacular going on at all. I am also scheduled to do 4 hours of overtime at work on sunday. Looks good on a paycheck.

The renovations on the house are moving along. Slowly, of course. There is one more doorway to remove and a wall to put in its place. After that it will be time to paint. Any volunteers? until next time...

2 Beer Dinner

Dinner tonight was good. Steaks and beer (with french fries). I am at peace with myself and my decisions. I think my career is going in a good direction. Today one of the supervisors stopped to ask my advice in reference to some issues he was having. My union training has come in handy. Good Luck Dale.

I hope to write more in this blog...more volume and more entries. Now, for the weekend. Gonna be a blast. ----- is taking me to a club in charleston to listen to her favorite band. I am gonna have a great time. Kinda hope that I don't have to show my Redneck side. For any one who has a question about that (and needs to know) please refer back to the incident at Sharkeys in Huntington in early 2000.

until then

Another Sunday

Good Morning everyone,

Today is Sunday and I must say it looks like it is going to be a beautiful day. The sun is shining and ...I woke up on the correct side of the ground this morning. Everyone at my house is becoming more and more concerned. Jake Dog is growing older and his hips are failing him fast. I am afraid that he won't be with us much longer. I wish he was a pup again.

Gotta put in some overtime today. Seems that with my office being three people down we just can't keep the work caught up. I expect I will see a few others there this morning also.

My dear sweet wonderful soon to be ex wife texted me yesterday...all I told her was for her to speak with her lawyer...since my lawyer has now spoken to hers. I hate that it has to be that way, but she went and got a temporary order requiring me to pay half of her marital debt. She did conveniently leave all of my bills off of the order. My attorney is asking for it to be set aside or...for her to have to pay half of mine. I am sure that will go over like a rock.

The final mater in that is...the divorce is paid for and all that remains is a legal split of the debt and signing of the papers. I am pretty sure she doesn't realize that she will lose money from her VA comp check and also her health insurance. Yes, I know her other ex husband will have to carry coverage on her kids...Good Luck with that, Josh.

My blog posts seem to be growing. I believe it is directly related to the fact that I feel better and life is on the upswing. See you guys on the lake...until next time

wet monday

It is another monday. The only thing different is this one is wet. Oh yeah, and I am not at work. I took a vacation day. I have had a great weekend and do not look forward to going back to work. I want to take another week off,but I cannot. I am looking forward to ----- coming back in a few days. She is in TN visiting family. Seems to be having a good time. Well, until my next post...

Here I am sitting at home. There is a very cold rain coming down outside. I appreciate the roof over my head today. Tonights plans include a date with a very nice young lady. I look forward to it. I believe dinner will be at Applebees.

I realize this blog has become about absolutely nothing and I kind of like it. My random thoughts concerning the world and Troy's way in it. There will be very few attempts to make money or even sign you up for anything. I am just not interested.

Sunday Kenny and I are going down to cave run lake and see whats going on. Might even manage to get a line in the water. I wouldn't mind a meal with sone fresh fish, beans and cornbread. Sounds really good.

Until next time

Sorry to all of my readers for not posting for a while. Contrary to popular belief I have not been in prison. Nor was I imprisoned in a foreign country for doing something stupid.

Todays post is just going to be short sweet and to the point. I am liking my life again. It is just wonderful to laugh and have a good time. Much of the sadness has left and the fun has returned. I hope to file my divorce papers very soon (at least an answer to what is already there) and get that mess over with. I have determined that there is not and will not be any form of reconciliation.

Lets look at the brighter side. There is a young lady named ----- that has entered my life and I am most intrigued with her. She is pretty and smart and sexy. I am a very lucky man. We'll see how that goes.

The boating season is upon us and here is some advice. Beer in the left hand steer with the right...
