My week in photos 17.2020 If I crop out my big bald head this picture looks okay. There are some benefits to ‘working’ from home I guess. Burnt myself on my wood burner. Drew in some eyes to complete the look. (The above are from rough housing with the German) Home baked scones.

(This is how wars start) crustytuna at I guess you do live below equator. Everyone below equator seems to reverse the jam/cream positioning…I coincidentally had this exact discussion just this morning with an Aussie and a Brit. Upside-downers. Jo at I don’t know if we can be friends anymore. This is quite a serious aberration. Ha ha ha. It may be because I’m on the bottom though… which gives me a different perspective… and also (because I’m upside down) more blood flow to the gray stuff. Professor Taboo at Reply So that’s you, who “hates winter”? You got a BIG wet nose there Jo! 😉 😛 Jo at Reply I wish this was me. 1. Because it means I would be warm and snug right now. 2. And perhaps more importantly it would mean I was sleeping. (I have a four year old and a one and a half year old… it feels like I never get to sleep anymore, ha ha) Professor Taboo at 🤣 OH MAN! I can so relate to your FORCED insomnia Bro! I remember those days and sleepless nights with my daughter (now 26-yrs old) and then my son (now 19) when their mother and I took turns. And Jo, I was working two jobs and one of them was Security Guard for two auto-dealerships on a graveyard shift, i.e. from 7pm at night until 7am the following morning. When I’d get home in the AM, I’d have to make breakfast, get my daughter dressed for school, my wife (then, now ex-wife) would have to get ready and leave for her full-time job in downtown Dallas around 8am, and then get my daughter to school with our infant son… and THEN (hopefully) get some intermittent quick naps while my son slept—in between feedings my wife would breast-pump into bottles—until I had to go get my daughter at school. When my wife returned from her job about 5:45pm – 6pm I had dinner cooked and ready, then do it all over again. HOLY EFFIN HELL man, being a “Stay-at-Home Father” was the HARDEST DAMN JOB I have ever done in my life Dude!!! It gave me such a huge respect and admiration for ANY woman/mother who stayed home full-time with kids! OMS&G Jo… I never want to do that again. So count your blessings/good gifts every chance you get Sir! Cuz mothering two kids and holding down two jobs DWARFS this fuckin’ easy ass COVID-19 shit… hands down! 😉 😛 Jo at Wow. I feel somewhat embarrassed now by my constant whining about how hard child-rearing is (I really had no idea). Even Covid has been a little hard for me. Ha ha. Although I have stopped shy of comparing my daily trials of having to wander aimless from the sofa to the refrigerator and back again to those of Anne Frank, Nelson Mandela and Rubin ‘The Hurricane’ Carter. I recently sold my company (at the beginning of the year) and I had this idea to become a house husband and stay at home dad… after a couple of weeks now… yeah… there’s no way. 😀 Professor Taboo at Bwahahahaha! Ah, you’ll be alright man. In fact, the BEST teacher in life is how you respond to adversity, stress, and tribulation! THAT is how you really get to know yourself, your stoicism, composure, and all those virtues that turn you into a better, more whole human being. Just don’t be a premature quitter, stay IN THA GAME!!! Don’t be a spectator, be an active PLAYER!!! And I don’t mean “playe-ah” as in womanizer, etc. 😉 😛 Jo at I used to be a playe-ah… well… I thought I was. Ha ha. And having an inflated sense of self is half the battle won right? Professor Taboo at Yep. I remember those ancient times myself! Talk about INFLATED. Geezzz, I do miss my play-doll… Tara. Her full name was Tara MaClosesoff. 😆 Hubba hubba, right? Then one night, BOOM!!! She just blew up on me without warning! 😲 And we had NEVER had any fights or arguments since she came into my life Jo… from FedEx! There’s been others, sure. But no one like my Tara. <3 hehehe 🤭 Jo at Lol. I see what you did there. 😉 Professor Taboo at 😈😁 Leave a Reply Cancel reply This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
