Back on the road...Again

Yaaaaaa.....Sing with me.." on the road again, I'm on the road again..."

I'm taking the black stead out of moth balls on Monday and hitting the road. Just a short trip to Fresno, CA. and Sacramento, CA. for the week.

It's been a busy past couple of weeks. I started selling my toys on ebay....$1200 for 135 Hotwheels, I should have done this a few years ago. I only have 1500 more Hotwheels to go and then I will have a large dent into the toy mess. And maybe my garage back as well.

Started riding my bike again last week. I did 25 mile today and won't be able to sit for a day or two. I have a nice Kona full suspension bike that is sooooo nice to ride. Fat furry woodland creatures need all the help we can get.

Update on the nickname "Tweek". I like it and have even changed my caller ID on my cell phone to say "Tweek" when he calls.

Squirrel is having an open hole this weekend. He is going to have a keg of Yellow Snow Ale from Rogue Ales on tap...Gotta love the squirrel, that little party animal. Rumor has it that he is putting out a tray of pickled Herring just in case anyone drops by.

More later.

"Yellow Snow Ale"? For some odd reason, that sounds less than appetizing. But then, hamsters are fussy... Travel will no doubt much appreciate squirrel's kind thoughtfulness.

Herring, did someone say pickled herring? I'll start flying in your direction as fast as I can . . . oh well . . . the water route will take a few days and pickled herring is like smoked eel it only lasts so long in the sunshine, just ask wickedhamster.

you told me that they were serving the juniper pale ale that I like . . .

the whole yellow snow marketing thing, while amusing, troubles me

I will attempt to suppress my excitement over the recent (and future) eBay sales . . . {doing a happy dance in the corner}

Yellow Snow Ale=Juniper Pale Ale

Marketing told them that they could never sell anything with the name of Yellow Snow Ale....I hate marketing.

On the road again.

Since taking a new position this spring, I have enjoyed the lack of travel that came with the change flow of life. However, all good things seem short lived as I must now start traveling again on a somewhat regular basis's. The travel will be one to two nights a week during the summer months and then I can go back to less travel come the winter months when sales slow down and customers don't want to see me as much. And due to the lack of a computer to travel with, up loading pictures will come at less regular intervals for present time. And just for the record...I flipp'in snowed on me Wednesday....Snow in June. I have pictures to prove it. Stay tuned.

On the topic of kids

And we are obviously buying less and conscious of all our choices - escaping the consumerism of elaborate do-it-yourself decor and prepared cuisine, the soccer mom mystique, and the bored, lazy, 'gimme' kids. Sometimes a quote comes along that really fits the way you think and live. This is one of those quotes, and the best part is that it comes from my DW. When you spoil you kids with love and a learning environment, no problem. I do believe that some parents do really take care of their kids and teach them to be strong non-whining adults that work to support themselves and intern teach the next generation to do the same. Then there is the rest of the parents that are raising whining think that they deserve everything but don't want to work for it spoiled brats that will complain about the government full time, but are the first ones there with their hands out and still think the should get more.... assbites! Then again some people complain about the way we raise our k
