Thanksgiving 2018 is in the books!  It was a good one.  I made a rookie eating mistake.  I fixed my plate, ate and then realized I forgot the stuffing!  That’s my favorite part!!!  Ugh.  I had some on my second plate but the damage was done.  How did we work off dinner?  DANCE, BABY, DANCE!

Cara (niece) took that video. It’s so crazy. I love it!

Have a great weekend!

I spent Saturday raking leaves.

After hours and hours I bagged up 10 big bags.

That’s crazy. I listened to music to pass the time. My raking leaves music of choice is Iron Maiden’s Live After Death. It’s such a good live album! Cara and I had a lovely sushi dinner on Saturday.

Sunday can be summed up with this video of Iggy:

Have a great day/week.

I have a cold.  How/Why?  Monday I was in Florida where it was 87 degrees.  Tuesday I was back on Long Island where it was in the 30’s.  Toss in a person hacking up their lungs on on flight and there you go.  But I will survive!

What I almost didn’t survive, yes that’s an exaggeration, was yesterday’s snowstorm.  The forecast was for 1 to 3 inches…we got 6 inches of heavy, wet snow.  So it caught everybody by surprise.  By the time the plows came out it was too late.  I saw a lot of accidents and a lot of people driving like idiots.  I was happy to get home.

You know who loved the snow?  Iggy!

Before I go, how about one more photo from Disney? This is a selfie I took in front of Epcot. The food and wine festival was going on. We had a good time.

If you look at the green arrow you can see Cara in the background. Today is Cara’s birthday! Happy Birthday! xoxo.

Where have I been?  Here’s a hint:

Ha ha.  That’s right, We went to Walt Disney World!  Long story short, we had a great time!

This time I made sure I stayed hydrated!  I don’t know if you remember but I fainted by the Frozen ride a few years ago.  This time around I drank a ton of water!  I must have visited every restroom in WDW, ha ha!  Here’s a photo of my return to the spot where I fainted:

Not this time! Have a great day!

Whoa, sunset is at 4:44 PM!  I know that’s what happens when we set our clocks back but yuk.  I don’t like it.  Iggy was ready.

He wore an illuminated collar last night.  Smart boy!

Where have I been?  I don’t know.  Where have YOU been?!  The weekend is over.  Highlight:  Gaining an hour!  Lowlight:  I was putting together our new bed and getting rid of the old one.  I thew one of the old box springs out the front door and crushed Cara’s mums.  I couldn’t even hide the damage.  She witnessed the whole thing.  I was in the zone.  The stupid zone.  The weekend did get better.  We like our new bed.  I bagged A LOT of fu@king leaves!  Good Lord!  Next year I’m cutting down all the trees.  Or gluing the leaves so they don’t fall.  Thankfully I had help:

Iggy, you’re a good one!  Have a great day/week. is 18 years old today. That is nuts! Here’s the first thing I ever posted on

“Happy Halloween! OK, story time. When I was in the 6th grade I went trick or treating. I was with my older brother, George and his friends. We were walking around and I said let’s go over here. Over here was a dark row of apartments with no lights. They said no Bob; there’s no one there. I didn’t believe it and went anyway and they went to the next house. Now, I must tell you I was dressed like a devil and had on one of those rubber masks that you can’t see out the sides. The guys were yelling at me to come on and I walked towards the sidewalk and this big blonde kid dressed like an Indian came from no where and stole my bag of candy. I was standing there with the bag handles watching my candy run away. I cried and cried. Years later in Hoboken, some punks hit me in the head with an egg. To make a long story short, I think Halloween blows. Please send candy now!”
