Rough week ahead

I am NOT looking forward to this week.  Bro has to go to a wedding (in-law side of his family) in Michigan and is driving there with two other couples.  I've been recycled as CEO / head flunkie again, this time for 6 days.  Ugh!

I can feel summer a-knocking.  For several days our temps have topped out in the nineties.....probably the first of about 150 this year.  It's 7am as I write this and I can already hear the lawn guys out mowing.  It's times like this I remember why I'm a happy renter.  Also, K found a leak under our kitchen sink.  I fixed it.  Didn't even break a sweat.  (I fired off an email to maintenance :)

Building Crane....the official bird of Dallas

Two more of these things have gone up near where I live.  This one is about 1/2 mile SW.  I'm told it's to be an 8 story office building, all pre-leased to an insurance company.  The other is about a mile S.  Plus the news reported local pre-owned house prices are up over 10% from last year.  Listen....can you hear it?  *inflation*

More drivel later.  Gotta go.  Have a good day everyone.



  1. You just can't figure out this retirement thing can you?

    1. But I still pull in a check as a "consultant", and I do still own half the place. What can I say? I'm a sucker for punishment.

  3. Never mind your complaining about coming out of retirement for a split second...your brother is driving to Michigan? From Dallas? With two other couples?

    Isn't that, like, 1,200 miles?

    You should do fine running the company again for six days. Clearly, you are the smarter brother.

  4. Ha! I never thought about it like that before. I' m a friggin' GENIUS! ;)
