The Florida Cowboy

yep, in a boot to boot!

in colorado, i ended up getting two boots, one for me and one for my lover! the texas roadhouse loved when i asked for said drinky and made it with aplomb.

so, i'm glad to hear Rigo is getting the south to embrace the cowboy. thanks bud.

colorado was good. put in some serious hours, but loved every minute of it. seriously, I was on a high the entire week. not because i was travelling and eating junk food, but because i was part of something and there was a defined goal and we were hitting it. i am going to pursue this further if possible.

this wasn't my bill, but the bill for me, myself and I.....

seriously, we went out with some old/new friends to the 5th Quadrant Lompoc and had some fun. when we arrived, i wanted my new fave drinky and asked for it by name:


the waiter looked quizically at me and honestly stated he didn't know the drink. before i could tell him, A. made fun of me stating i was "making up the drink..." i informed him that the drink was Orange Juice and Jim Beam - Florida Cowboy...

and look, he put it on the bill.


Bootie Light!

still here

well, i'm still alive and kicking. yesterday was a crazy busy day with a birthday party, a blogger meetup and an election night party. all were fun. have some reservations about ACME bar - the service sucks and the prices are way way to high. oh well, we were there for a great gal.
i walked accross the morrison bridge after work to get to the 2nd event. that is the scariest bridge i know. there is nothing between the cars and the peds and people drive crazy on that bridge. not sure what i'm suggesting, but there has to be some solution.
i walked under the morrison once i got to the east side. i love it down there. gritty and dirty and grafitti everywhere. i took some great shots i'll upload later. i wish we had other parts of town that were like that....
the garden is going crazy. gotta weed more.
ok, enough of me. how are you?

i lost count. had a fun night tuesday with our neighborhood buddies. you may recognize them. thanks for coming to town Matt.
i have to say Acupulco Golds has some strong margaritas, but great food. my fish tacos were excellent.
i'm in a haze this morning, not having had my coffee just yet. don't you hate when people blog without coffee?
thank you for the advice on the the lists. i do still have the stress feeling because i'm gonna be away for 2 weeks, yet i did have another thought - i'm gonna be away FROM WORK for two weeks. eventhough i will be working, it won't be @ work, so it will be different and maybe exciting.
so, the garden is going crazy. i really need to mow. i can't distinguish the lettuce from the weeds, so will need A's assistance. some critter ate one of my flower starts, but oh well, it will survive. the eucalyptis (sp) is growing an inch a day i think. yay nature!
gonna go fishing tomorrow. i'll take some photos for all a ya. maybe even get a fishy.
rambling over.....

i have been away....and i have no excuses. then again, you could have called....

so, what's up? well, spring is here and i have been out and about working on the garden, the yard, the house. i love dry weather because i can get the little stuff done. like painting the railings on the porch. these railings went in the summer before last and are not just getting paint. that's my MO. i start stuff, but don't finish. i don't know what it is, but it isn't good. so hopefully, the rain will go away and i'll be able to get back to what i was doing.
last week was stressful. i had the realization that i was going out of town for work for a week at the end of the month. normally, this is a good thing. i love traveling and having someone else pay for it. further, i feel the project i am going to work on will be positive and uplifting. yet, i realize i will be away from home and my projects and my dogs and A. and then i have the thought of all the stuff i need to get done before that and the other activities we have planned and and and... i spin out of control.....
when in reality, there's plenty of time and i don't have stuff planned every night of the week and weekend. oh, there is still stuff to do, just not as much as i think there is.
our garden is going crazy. i gotta get out and do some weeding again. oh well, the life of a gardner. the early morning 5am thing hasn't been working, but i won't beat my self up just yet. i am getting up earlier than i use to and am using that time to do productive stuff. even last week i went to work earlier. go figure.
haven't been walking too much, but vow to walk a ton this week. we got a new camera and i want to test it out. last weekend, we did some canvassing for Cheryl for Judge. at first i was all stressed out that people would ask me questions and confront me and shit, but it worked out very well and people were generally welcoming. we did 10,000 steps in under 2 hrs and that was before lunch. that's the type of walking i love to do in the summer. woohoooo summers coming.
ok, enough rambling. have a good week all.
