so i went hiking on saturday and we had my family here for a barbeque on sunday, i posted that quick 4th of july post, and then totally forgot that yesterday was monday. i guess because everyone else had the day off...
so here it is tuesday and we'll see how the day goes...
hiking on saturday was with a couple of friends--don and dennis--across the river by new paltz, lake minnewaska in the shawangunk mountains. i'd only been hiking once before this summer and that one let me know that my cardio needed a little work. (working on it...). this was a much smoother hike--although i can still feel it a little in my calves. gotta get in shape--the zombies could be here any minute...
sunday was the fourth and we had my father, my brother and my niece and nephew over for steaks, corn on the cob, potato salad, regular green salad, water melon and pie. usually i'm the pyromaniac who has some fireworks salted away for later in the evening, but this time jeff was really proud and excited to be the guy with the connection. unfortunately, things have been pretty rainless around here for the past two weeks and we had to agree that the grass was just too dry to have sparks raining down on it all over the place--the sun has been just burning the lawns up and in my backyard, which gets the sun all day long, is so dry it crunches like uncooked spaghetti under your feet. so maybe in a couple weeks...

gotta go and get to work, but i thought i'd mention my new favorite word--one i can't get out of my head and can't keep from just blurting out at the most inappropriate times like i have cryptozoological tourettes or something...i saw it mentioned as an upcoming movie on syfy's fall schedule and...well, i can wait to see it... *
it's called SHARKTOPUS!! and, really, if it's anything like dinocroc and supergator, well, i have paint i need to watch dry...
here's a taste of the superdinocrocagator and then some concept pics of, say it with me...SHARKTOPUS!
and while searching for pics of the sharktopus, i found this cool picture that i like to call "oblivious".
