So there I was sitting all alone on the couch (where else would I be) minding my own business when...
Wait, wait, that's not exactly true. I was making witty comments on some of my favourite blogs, and smart-ass ones on the others when all of a sudden I came across the latest post from Ziva @ Ziva's Infernal Inferno and Michael Whitman-Jones @ I Never Want To Get Up.Com. It was like stereo. Having invented the 30 Days of Photographes meme and invited other bloggers to share in the pain, er, shame, er, glory(?) this past April, these two sadists have set their mark (see what I did there? sadists/mark, marquis de sade) again for the month of October.
That's right ladies and gentlemen, October is 30 Days of Photographs III. Don't these people think we've already taken enough photos.
Good thing I just charged up my iPhone/camera. And I've got the first week in the bag. Now there's a positive "development". I refuse to be "negative" abo…
So there I am settling in to last Thursday night's Green Bay vs Chicago match up sharing mind-numbing comments on Facebook chat with Unfinished Person (his, not mine). I have the advantage over UP. I have satellite TV so I actually get to see NFL games live. UP has to prime his herd of hamsters to get that little wheel going so he can actually see replays on his computer. Thank God for replays, because we both almost missed this:
Uh-huh. Did you see that? You should have. It ran twice.
Green Bay lined up for a 3 pointer but punter Tim Masthay passed to tight end Tom Crabtree for a 27-yard touchdown.
"Tom who?" Unfinished and I asked each other. I checked Wikipedia. Crabtree used to play for the Packers practice squad. Practice squad for frak sake, before he made the line up as third string TE.
Wikipedia also highlights that he is:
Married June 28, 2009 to Chelsea Crabtree. Has a son Bryce Thomas Crabtree born October 14, 2010 and is expecting his second child, a baby gir…
Sounds like a folk-group from the 60s, don't you think? Or a vaudeville act. But the three of us are far too young to have ever seen a vaudeville act, let alone been one.
Nope. Dufus you of course know. But Duford and Boom Boom are two fantastic bloggers I had the pleasure to meet this summer. Yeah. How about that. And both wonderful ladies at that.
Cheryl Duford hangs out at Deckside Thoughts. We met, virtually, through Ziva and Michael's 30 Days of Photos challenge back in April. I was amazed at the wonderful photographs she posted. I think she was surprised some guy named noname could actually take pictures on an iPhone. Nevertheless, we friended each other on Facebook and from there we planned on meeting up when Mrs D and I vacationed in Ogunquit, Maine. You see Ogunguit is just a short distance from Portsmouth, New Hampshire where Cheryl and her husband Running Man reside.
We agreed to meet for lunch. She was a good sport. She took us to a seafood restaurant. Of course, b…
