I Replaced My Camera

Got a new GoPro-esque camera (I think Rish called it a Faux Pro, I like that term) and I shot a new Anklecast on it that I'll hopefully get posted soon. Also, today I went out and had some fun with it in the pool.

I discovered that it kind of floats, but at about six inches under the water. So the camera that I dropped into the water in Louisiana was probably nowhere near where I tried fishing around for it by the time I got that net from the boat captain.

What kind of incredible action is Edna Mode going to get into?

Struggling For A Reason For Americans To Watch

The commercials for the World Cup simultaneously crack me up and make me sad. “Root For Your Roots” is their slogan, to try to get Americans to watch this time around. Cheer for England if your ancestors come from there, or Mexico if your ancestors are from there, or Nigeria if your ancestors come from there. You just can’t cheer for the USA, because for the first time since 1990, your squad failed to qualify. Sad trombone.

Fear The Beard!

Rockets are in the playoffs right now. Looks like James Harden may well end up being this year's MVP too. So, everybody's enamored around here with the guy. So much so that they made these:

Fear the Beard...he is high in calories and sugar.

Zippers Show

Saw the Squirrel Nut Zippers for the first time ever today. I've been a fan since 1996 when their album Hot came out. I was super excited for this show.

here’s a video of them doing their most famous song “Hell” from the show the other day.

This was the encore at the show. The band came down into the crowd and marched through the aisles...

...Then they went out into the lobby and finished the show there, before hanging out and taking pictures with the fans and stuff.

This is my selfie that I took with Jimbo Mathis.

Jimbo is the only guy left in the band from the original lineup, and I have to admit that I really missed Katherine Whalen's voice in the band. She was probably the thing I liked most about the band. But, some of the new additions were really impressive, and so I have nothing to complain about at all. The show was really, really exciting and high energy. I haven't seen anything like this show in a really long time...maybe ever.


I’ve heard a lot about this stuff, and decided to try it for the first time today. I like it. It was buy one get one free, so my 18-year-old has one too. He likes it too. My wife hated it, and so did my 16-year-old daughter. So, it wasn’t smiles all around. Have you tried kombucha? What’s your take?

Flower Power 2

Wildflowers from my walk today.

Turtles All The Way Down

Went for a walk today, and found a really big turtle. I managed to not fall down when I walked down to the canal bottom, and I picked the turtle up and brought it up to my 6-year-old son who was wearing roller blades and couldn't come down himself. This is him holding the turtle.

I put him back in the canal even though my son really wanted to keep him in our pool.

Anklecast 39: Must Have Been A Pickpocket, It Couldn't Be My Fault

Reporting back on writing, and a couple of other disaster stories from my New Orleans trip. I really ought to look back on that trip as the worst ever, but somehow I don't. Weird.
