PapaScott I like big blogs and I cannot lie! 🐘

Early Morning


Weekend! Well, for most of us anyway. Mama is on tour tomorrow, so Christopher and I will take a 'Vatertag' tour together. But without schnaps.

After 8 weeks in the shop for guarantee repairs, my DVD player is on it's way home, at least according to the online RMA databank. Unless it's a hoax.


Brent, I'm a baby boomer, and I like punk too. Cool.

And Sheila, I would have been in a good mood this morning whether the Twins won or not. Four-day weekend starts tomorrow, and the weather should be good all four days! (But Seattle-Minnesota would be a cool playoff series this fall.)


Some days you wake up at 5 am, the sun is shining, the air smells wonderful, the birds are chirping, Christopher is sleeping peacefully, and all seems well with the world.

Or maybe I was picking up good vibes from Minnesota. Twins 12 Mariners 11. Only at the Metrodome is a 8-0 lead unsafe.
