A day in the life.......

Not much going on today....did some yard work, listened to some old favorite CD's while re- painting the shutters ('Illmatic' and 'Yo, Bum Rush The Show'), mowed the yard, etc....then I realized how f'n hot I was. Hosed myself off, put on the trunks, packed a bag and went to the beach. Stopped at the Food Lion (my loyalty runs deep....) for a case of beer on the way....(god bless Carolina Beach for allowing such behavior..public drinking....with in reason). I planted my ass right on the edge of the water (high tide peaked today around 12:30ish), popped open a brew, grabbed my book ('Kalki'), and just...relaxed.....see pic below...
....but anyways....as always, I took some pictures while there. There was a storm coming into Wilmington about that time, though it never made it the beach...thankfully. From the beach, the clouds appear very threatening....you keep thinking 'I better pack up now' but I was holding out, hell, I had a book to finish, not to mention a few beers left (I did NOT take the case with me onto the beach...even I have limits..). Below are the pictures...click to enlarge.
Well, the rain never came to the beach, I finished the book (and a few beers) and got some quality swim time in. The water is roughly 70 degrees now and today, the ocean was perfect...not too rough and just enough waves to make it fun. I got used to the temp pretty quickly too. I really need more days like this. Until next.......

Random stuff.....

We just got this picture...it's hanging in the master bathroom....really. It was found somewhere around Whiteville in a second shop....I wasn't there but I would've been all over it had I been there. Take a moment and check it out.....
Does anything about this picture make sense? I haven't been able to crack the riddle..if there is one...nor do I 'get it'. Cats smoking in the boys room in what appears to be old school cop outfits. It does amuse me though so it is a certified 'Great Find'..... Next is more sky pictures from the back porch....they HAVE been editted....enjoy and click to enlarge as always....
...and lastly.....the notorious B-A-T.....Bat Man... ..came with the house....one of the best cats I've ever had......she (yeah 'she'..) doesn't smoke though.....or wear cop outfits...
...until next time......

First swim......

Today after work, we went to the beach. Around 85ish inland, on the beach...roughly high 70's....though VERY NICE. Today was the first day that I actually jumped in overhead and swam. New record.....May 6th, while the prior was around the 15th (I think..).... It is still pretty damned cold, but it depends on how much you WANT IT. I want it. So I survived. I got used to it quickly. Below are the pics I took while there.....enjoy. Beach season is HERE!!
