Friday night, raced the rain and nightfall to get the lawn mowed. Still need to get some trimming done.

Saturday, hung a new shower curtain rod, cleaned the grill up, unpacked a box or two, not much else.

Sunday, off to NC for Mother's day related things,

Friday: got home around 6, crashed in the bed.

Saturday: up and over to the midlands for some scokker action. Was there most of the day, hit Publix up for some subs and headed home. Walked/jogged two miles. Shower and bed

Sunday: up early for mother's day, did the presents with the kids and then settled in to watch my favorite day of the sports year, the last day of EPL play. Watched City win the title and all of the post match analysis. Jogged/ran 2.5 miles and THEN got to watch Juventus and AC Roma. THEN watched the USWNC play South Africa, and THEN watched DC United against Sporting KC. Pretty mucg wall-to-wall scokker. Fell asleep with the NBA game on last night, apparently I missed a big shot by Kawhi Leonard.

Needless to say, the fields were plowed.

Saw Avengers: Endgame
Took kids to Carowinds
Arsenal beat Burnley 3-1 and Auba got a share of the Golden Boot for his brace. 22 goals is kinda low for the Golden Boot winner(s)
Cut my grass and some of my parent's before the monsoon happened.
Avoided going to Prom although wife had to go for a little while to chaperone (narc). I thought she looked hot so I kinda wished I would have gone with her. Pretty sure they would look down on me for grabbing her ass the entire time.

Up at 4 AM for work. In the office by 545. Sleepy by 800.


Did you like Endgame? Can’t believe Thor had to kill Hulk.

Friday - left work early to go get the wife's mother's day present (yoga pass). ended up staying in the house and having a digorno
Saturday - Woke up an went to Folly. very nice beach day saturday morning. Ended up leaving around 11 due to baby not being able to nap in our tent. Went to my parents house with a load full of wood that evening
Sunday - went to the grocery store in the morning and purchased 2 T-Bone steaks. Combined weight was about 3.5 pounds - close to 1.5"-2" thick. Pan seared them for 3 mins each side then slid them in the oven at 425 for 10 minutes. Came out Medium-Rare. I'm not a huge fan of cooking steaks in the oven so I think I'll go back to the grill next time

Friday: Don't remember

Saturday: Spent all day helping the in-laws clean up around the pool and pool house. It's become a sport each year. My FIL is a borderline hoarder. We play an annoying game of sneaking crap to the dump without him finding out and fussing that he still needs that pool float that has a massive hole in it. Of course my lazy ### sister in law does what she does best, show up after the work is done. BIL woke her up at 11 am. We were all suppose to be there at 9am. She shows up at 2 pm. Was worn the #### out.


Sunday: Went to church with mother of for mother's day. Took wife of out for lunch. Swung by grandmother's house. Then grilled steaks that night.

Overall tiring.

Aiken Bluegrass Festival this weekend. Went for a good bit Friday, and about half Saturday. Wife was not able to go so not only did I pi$s away the money that was spent on her ticket, but I missed her not being there with me. But the parts that I saw were really good.

Friday had a nice dinner in Dtown Greenville, Then went to Charlie Daniels/Alabama Concert.

Charlie Rocked the house as a well as an 82 yr old fiddler can. I hope Im that active at 62 since I am already NOT that active at 52. Alabama sounds just as good and they have never been a jump around band anyway.

There are lots of old people in Greenville.

Friday night...poundtown, sat morning repeat (bithday sechs!)

Saturday, Drove down to old home place and surprised my mom for mothers day. So surprising that she was out shopping with my sister until 6pm. But was able to sit in the shade with my dad and tell stories to my kids about his and my childhoods on the farm. Boys rode 4 wheeler and shot bb guns. (was almost an Alabama song)

Sat night, cooked to Butts on the smoker and slept on a couch in the hottest house in SC.

Sunday, enjoyed family and cooked mom lunch. BBQ, Corn on the cob, Scalloped potatoes and salad. Napped and then drove back up the hill.

Showed the boys how to take care of a lady. Stopped for gas in Clinton, and helped a damsel in distress change her tire and put air in her spare (unfortunately, that is not some sexy pun :( )
Followed her to greenville to make sure she got into civilization ok. Who doesnt teach their kids how to change a tire and use an air compressor? BTW, there is an adorable young lady in Dtown Greenville in desperate need of a man.


all in all exhausting, but great.

Friday, went to Winthrop baseball game, drank a few PBRs and sat with all the pro scouts behind the plate. Had a good time, then headed over to Hickory Tavern to eat and watch a co-worker's band play. Band was excellent, the food and service at HT was NOT. Almost an hour to get food on a night that wasn't packed, server was very nice, which only slightly made up for her incompetence. The homemade chips that came with the sandwich followed about 20 minutes later, and our girl brought the wrong check and yet again disappeared for too long. Totally reinforced my notion that HT is NOT in my restaurant rotation, and never would have gone if it wasn't for the band in the first place.

Saturday, slept way too late, got up and drank a few cups of coffee, long walk with the pup. Piddled around the house until finally heading out to do some Mom's Day shopping. Picked up several cool Clemson items for RH Mom, then back to the house to get cleaned up and dressed for the York prom. I was a good husband and sat quietly with Mrs. Tig while she checked students in. My big takeaways from Saturday night: (1) Far too many girls in York come from single mother homes, because dads would NEVER have let some of those girls leave the house like that (2) Tuxedos now have a formal trucker cap option, and half the boys there chose that option (3) Kids today are stupider because the music is stupider. Left after the 2 hour shift with a headache from booming, echoing rap music in a high school gym. Expected to go eat, but it was a monsoon rainstorm so just went home and threw a Marie Callender's chicken pot pie in the microwave, ate, and crashed.

Sunday, got up and got cleaned up and took the whole family to Flipside Restaurant with an 11:30 R E S E R V A T I O N. Seated at 12:15. Food and service were great though. Went home and walked the pup, then off to the grocery store. Back home and started the rest of the chores I had put off all weekend. Noticed the fridge had stopped cooling, so we scrambled to move the beer from the beer fridge into the big Cabela's cooler, and the food stuff into the beer fridge. Finally sat down with everything done at 10:30, too tired to even drink a beer, so I took the pup out and crashed.

While it wasn't a murderous weekend by any stretch, it was filled with numerous minor annoyances. If I'm going to rank it, I'll use the SEC coaches scale and give the weekend a half-Muschamp. Also...after watching Winthrop play Friday night, I realized just how bad we really are this year in baseblah.


We did Flipside on Saturday night. 6:00 reservations, sat

down at 6:15 and didn't get out of there until 730 and one couple had to get their dessert togo. Terribly slow and, TBH, the food really isn't THAT good. We easily dropped $60 for some shrimp & grits that used to be alot better (when they actually had a good helping of grits in them and less tomatoes) and some grilled chicken. Rock Hill craves a "nice" restaurant then ruins it when they get one.


No complaints with the brunch menu.

Yeah...it's not as good as it used to be, but everything we had Sunday morning was very good in spite of them being backed up. Also, last time I was there I had what may very well be the best tomato bisque I have ever eaten, so I'll reserve judgement on them having fully Rock Hilled. I do wish we had gone to friendly for the buffet, but I would have eaten far too much and been worthless the rest of the day, so there's that. Plus, as long as GG owns friendly, you can be guaranteed the food will be good. Say otherwise, and he'll send someone to break your effin' leg.

The one at 49 and 160 was always solid when we were there, and if you got the bee sting wing flavor and had them charred on the grill post-saucing, they were up there with Charlottes best (even if they did steal the flavor and name from Moosehead Tavern.)

I'm sure I'll go back again, but it won't be of my own accord. It's sad, because it's just down the street from home and would be a good regular spot if I could depend on it.

Saturday...went with family to Aiken to see my Mom. Had dinner at Romas and then went to a friend's house and had a few beers.

Sunday...church with my Mom, then brunch with my family and Big Daddy's family, sans Big Daddy/wife-o Big Daddy (btw your brother failed to disclose you were going to wife-of's family). Then back to my mom's house to work on bills/paperwork for her. Then home and made breakfast-for-dinner.

Which I don't understand, because I got home at like 12 last night and quickly went to bed. My liver doesn't seem to be functioning as well as it used to.

Anyway, I think we went out to eat a couple times on Friday and Saturday, then went to mothers day in N Chs yesterday. Have I mentioned lately how much N Chs sucks? Cause if not...N Chs sucks. Its just nasty there.

Watched Hans Wenzel yesterday, then had the wonderful idea of going to see a country band at 9 pm at The commodore downtown. That was stupid but it seemed like a great idea at the time. I had already been over served rum at The Southern by that time, and continued to drink when I got there. But here I am at 9 am still mostly drunk, starting a hangover, getting the shakes and feeling terrible. I'm not doing this again. I think I skipped out on my tab there, so i gotta go fix that at lunch, too.

A friends son graduated from Clemson then MUSC in Pharm D and started contracting with MUSC when he graduated. They rolled him full time pretty quickly after, and he's been there like 3 years, and he's already the head of his dept. I don't see him much, but probably will in a few weeks and will ask him what he's got going on job wise for a new grad if you'd like.

Took wife of and three of five kids of to NYC. Friday, arrived at 8AM and dropped our stuff at the Hotel and then walked Central park and spent a few hours at the Met. Then dinner in Chinatown and drinks/dessert in little Italy.

Saturday went to the 9/11 memorial (immensely well done, do recommend) and then walked down to Battery Park and had some beers at the Oyster place down there. Walked up the waterline to the meatpacking district for lunch and then walked the high line back to times square. Ordered the kids a pizza and then wife and I hung out at an italian place near the hotel and talked to the old man/owner/bartender while he made me triple Manhattans.

Sunday up and out in the rain to walk around the shops at Rockefeller Center before eating at Rock Center Cafe which was some overrated overpriced bullshit, btw. Our friends wanted to eat there and we agreed but it was not good.

Then we went to Tiffanys and took pictures with half the staff because they wanted pictures with our baby. She had about eight people give her Tiffany's jewelry bags to hold for a picture. Then we walked around a bit more, had a couple of beers at Bills Burgers and headed to the Airport.

Would do again minus the Rock Center Cafe.
