Happy Friday.

Already have my swimsuit on- hoping to get a little bit of sunshine and pool time before work.

QOTD: Final push fit summer - what do you want to enjoy before summer leaves us?

I live about 15 minutes from a touristy port town and there is an open air seafood restaurant right on the water. They have counter service. My yearly tradition is to go eat lobster at sunset and watch the boats.

Good morning everyone and happy Friday! You made it!!

Billy Joel concert last night was fabulous! He played for about 90 minutes, took less than a 5 minute break and came out for another 20 minutes, even higher energy than before! Pretty impressive at a mile high (and at 70!)!

qotd - Maybe the zip line/obstacle course down south.

So many meetings today, I think there should be a national rule no meetings after noon on Friday! Then I need to pick up a package they are holding for me at the store, run by the library, maybe go see The Kitchen afterwards or maybe I'll jus****ch Widows which I have recorded.

Menu today will involve all the coffee, expect to read about a shortage tomorrow because I will have drunk it all!

b - cottage cheese

l - p3 pack

d -crustless pizza

s - L&F greek

photos are from last night - cool cloud, Coors field and sunset from the upper deck

have great Friday and weekend

Jealous about Billy Joel. I saw him in concert in 1992 and it was the best concert I have ever seen.

Happy Fri-yay!

Once I asked my friend "at what age do people begin to believe that every short line in the airport is merely a hidden gem, undiscovered by the masses?" Signs with titles like: TSA Pre-check, First Class, Pilots and Crew Only, or Uniformed Military are blithely ignored as the Senior set flows towards the short line. His theory was that, at age 68, people begin to pretend that they do not understand the signs in hope of getting sympathy from the airport workers, but by age 83 they truly don't know which line they are in.

Once the older women are through security, they seem to calm down and proceed to board the plane like everybody else. But for the aging men, there is a special treat coming: the return to their migratory position. You ask what is the migratory position of an older male?

Once a man turns 63, he is drawn, inexorably, to position himself exactly four feet behind the boarding lanes and in the exact mid-point of the Group 1-4 and Group 5-8 boarding lines. There, he will stand, with his Group Six boarding pass, while everybody trying to board the plane flows around him like a stream circumnavigating a clump of trees. God forbid that he is traveling with another similarly aged male because they will stand in the exact same position, side by side, so that they are blocking three quarters of both boarding lanes.

If he is traveling with a spouse, no additional problems will be presented because she will herd twenty feet behind, waiting for her group to be called, like everbody else. Children will cower in the terminal seating areas, hoping that nobody notices that it is their Dad who is preventing the boarding of the entire plane.

I do not know what causes this migratory behavior. There is no time at which it presents an advantage to the migrant. Southwest Airlines boards by assignment number and all other airlines have assigned seating. (I'm not sure what Spirit Air does - frankly that airline terrifies me) Surely these men must realize that we board the plane in the order that our groups are called. And that six is not the first group.

Breakfast: Bratwurst

Snack: Protein bar

Lunch: Chicken

Snack: Jerky

Dinner: TBD

Have a great day, all!
