Rain on my Parade

Well I have a weekend of fishing planed at the Outer Banks of NC. Ferry was suppose to leave Thursday morning at 9:00 But I am still here. The Ferry is not running. We where able to get a new ferry ride for 6:00 am in the morning. The rain is flooding low lying areas. And next is this little tropical storm that will be here tonight. Who know they say there are 10' waves. A little bigger than bigger can fish in. It may be a weekend of heavy drinking and card playing.

Famous Bigger

I love music and in about 1996 when I heard Sublime for the first time, I fell in love with there style of music. Like most eastern U.S. people I did not discover them until the lead singer Bradley Nowell passed from a overdose. In the past year or so there has been a new guy take Bradley's spot. It will never be the exact same but is the closest it can come to the real thing. In July I was able to see the new band Sublime with Rome and the Dirty Heads. Matisyahu was also playing but I am not a huge fan of his music. I do own one cd and listen if he is on the radio but that is as far as I have gotten. At the concert there where many people with cameras videos and cell phones. I decided to look online to refresh my self and carry myself back to that night. For me it was on my bucket list. I was watching a video and heard a guy holler. It sounded like me. So I looked at this guys videos and during One Day by Matisyahu he pans to a girl sitting beside him. This was the girl that was sitting in front of me. After watching the whole vid I see my self. At approx 4 min and 30 seconds he pans to the right and there I am. Me and my big o bigger self. The message for this is to always be on your best behavior because who knows where your picture or video will show up.

Sorry for the lack of post I have been on the depressed side for a while. On Labor Day my wife's aunt passed. She was only 40. Having to watch my mother in law be upset hurts me. Unlike most in laws she is probably the greatest anyone could ask for. Then it got in my mind that she is the only sister left. She has 6 siblings 3 girls and 3 boys. There mother passed about 8 years ago and now 3 of the sisters have passed. They where all young, in there 50's expect this last one who was 40. It made me think about how it could all be over so quick. My mother in law is in her 50's. She is a big part of our life and it is hard to think that she may not be here much longer. There is nothing wrong with her just her family history is short. Then there is my wife who is the same blood as them. Could she go quickly? All these things have been dancing around in my head. We had the final memorial last night. It took awhile. There had to be an autopsy and then she had to get in line to be cremated. So with all that done we can move forward.

On a better note. One of my best friends got married this weekend. He had a beach wedding on the Atlantic seashore. It was beautiful and simple. I think this is a great move for him. He was married once and it did not work. This new girl who he has been with has 3 kids. She is a sweet heart and is perfect for him. Her oldest daughter made a speech to them after the wedding and it made me realise how happy they really all were. I am happy for them. I also got to see his whole family whom I have met in the past but do not see that often. Me and the oldest daughter where in the wedding.

Aint We Cute

There was a family ceremony thingy that is what the sand in the glass containers is on the table to the right. After the wedding it was a joke on the middle child. All of his sand did not fit in the jar. He got left short. It was funny. I do wish these 5 the best life ever. They are good people and deserve it.

Direct Miss

Wow, I got nothing from this storm. It did not effect any thing I have. We were lucky because it was a large storm. Now I just hope people have enough since not to get carried away at the beach with the rip tides.

I Set It

I have shipped my house out today. With effects of the storm starting some time tomorrow after lunch. If all goes well today we should be fine. I will not be able to vinyl the ends by tomorrow but trust my crew enough to not let the house get wet.

This afternoon I have school. It will be the first time we are in the kitchen. I have to say I am a little excited. I will let you know how it goes.

I will try to post some pics of this storm right now it is beautiful. The calm before the storm. A high of 92 and clear. What a Great day.
