Good morning everybody. How was your weekend?

Friday night. Stayed in to get ready for the weekend excursion.


Saturday - up earlyish to head up to The Shed for some Blackberry Smoke. Make a pit stop at the Moose Cafe in Asheville for breakfast. Mostly uneventful mountain drive, meet up with RH and the Mrs., grab some awesome Cuban food, because what else do you eat in Maryville, TN. Survive a brief but violent hail storm, then off for a night full of rock n roll and #### raising. Possibly the best Blackberry Smoke show I've been to.

Sunday, over to Gatlinburg for some brunch at Crockett's Breakfast Camp and a lil walkin' around. Back home by 7:15 or so. Sunday's drive saw a truck expertly ride down the mountain with a trailer for a bit then compare that to some guy who nearly came to a complete stop on one straight portion somewhere near sliding rock. I guess he could see my general frustration when I threw up my hands an off my hat so he finally pulled off.

Friday - dinner with the family and then headed down to watch some terrible baseball and then hit MGM for some roulette and blackjack.

Saturday - swim lessons for kids, lunch with the family at our favorite lunch spot. Back to baseball game with son and watched more terrible baseball.

Sunday - church, playground time in neighborhood since it was so nice, grilled steaks and salmon for dinner.

9/10 - lots of rain and really bad baseball make me lose a point.

Friday took the wife up to Flat Rock for a quilt show. In spite of myself, I was quite impressed with the artistry of some of the quilts. Then to Haus Heidelberg for some gut German food food and beer.
Stopped in Mcfarland's and picked up a supply of cream puffs for the weekend then home to watch CU baseball

Saturday up early to Clinton to judge some BBQ and hang out at Rhythm on the Rails - excellent ribs this year and they added brisket so win win.
Saw one of you lungers walking along I-26 buck nekkid on the way. Which one of you had a bachelor party that got out of hand Friday night?

Was too hot to hang around waiting on marginal bands so headed back mid afternoon for more TV baseball and Netflix

Sunday FIL birthday dinner, yardwork etc. Missed CU screwing the pooch on Senior Day.

so I pretty much sat around lightly grazing on foods to hold down.

Saw something that reminded me of the old Underbelly Season 2 about Aussie Bob and Terry Clark.

Watched about 5 episodes, and now back into it and want to finish.

Friday: Stayed home with a sick kid. Fever finally broke and he started feeling better.

Saturday: Nephew's birthday party at the fun warehouse in MB. There is no fun in that warehouse. It's a lie. Nothing but headaches. But for some reason, everybody in my family believe in that birthday location. Went shoe shopping for the kids. $40 for shoes they will be grown out of by the end of summer. My God. Just an all around irritating day. But in-laws kept the kids overnight so score.

Sunday: Slept late, picked up kids then made the rounds. Went to see grand parents. Grilled. Wife of bought a slip and slide for the kids which they then proceeded to fall on constantly and cry. Kids are stupid.

Overall 6/5

Sweated my balls off more than if they was sittin on a George Fourman grill. The waterpark opened on Sattidy and there was plenty of tiddies everwhere, but of the hundreds I saw maybe 1 or 2 pair that was actually asseptable to enjoy. Lots of Obeds and TRDJs there. Also was apparently middle school band day as the place was flooded with those little fuckers.


I know the rules boys but it was more of this



and not at all like this



There was a lot of this




Pretty good. Camping was the highlight.

Friday - Went to BFE Lexington County and camped.

Saturday - Went canoeing, fishing mostly, then other cub scout stuff. Watched a fire almost get out of control, watched 4 scouts try and cut a fat lighter stump in half (lollers), cooked about 60 pancakes. Drank about 6 bottles of water because it was 234 degrees. Caught two brim. One was fairly nice sized. Saw a lizard that's evidently "common" that I've never seen before. Must be common AND elusive. Son of swam all day and refused to drink water. So by the end of the day Saturday he quit, we bailed, and came home.

Sunday - Went to see dad. He was able to talk a little bit. Went to grocery store made the weekly grocery run. Drank 3 mojitos and a beer while cooking/eating mild italian sausages wrapped in bacon with BBQ sauce. Wife cooked veggies. Ate, slept. Starting work this AM.

Friday drove down to James Island, skipped the Twerking Contest and headed over to Zen for sushi and saki. Made ##### in the Airbnb.

Saturday woke up and made more ##### then had a huge breakfast at Maple Street. Hopped on a boat and rode around the harbor and over to IOP and back to Shem Creek. Crashed hard Saturday night.

Sunday headed home, did some grocery shopping, washed the car, changed brake pads on gf's SUV and watched GoT

The end


Pretty good, got to meet an old Tiger football player

from the 90's. I went to a charity event on Saturday night with a silent auction, much to my surprise there was a signed Deshaun Watson Clemson helmet for the bid.

I assumed there wouldn't be any other suitors since I'm in UGA country but low and behold, I look down and see "Rahim Abdullah" on the sheet. I end up deciding to bid later because LDR and dat natty, but in a very weird coincidence I sit down for dinner at my assigned table and Rahim and his wife are sitting there.

Rahim outbid me later on and seeing that he is 6'5 and easily 250 pounds of muscle I decided not to press my luck and I let it go. Really nice dude though...


Let's see how good my memory is.

Rahim picked off a goal line pass against Duke in OT in the Valley, and took it some 95 yards the other way for the win. Early 2000s. This was in doldrum years, so I'd guess...1998. Or 2002.

And Clemson won by 9 points in OT, which is apparently impossible to do today, as the play would be called dead as soon as he picked the ball. He wouldn't be able to return it. That's a dumb rule change if true. Why not let the other team try to force a fumble?

Friday, stopped and grabbed Papa Murphy pizza with my free pizza coupon, went home and walked pup, cooked pizza, drank beers and ate it, watched something or other on TV and crashed.

Saturday, up early, drop pup off to board, and back roads long way all the way to Maryville, TN. I think aero covered the agenda, except I will reiterate that amazing awesomeness of this show...Blackberry Smoke always puts on a show but this was unparalleled. This was something straight out of the epic shows of the 70s...LOUD, raucious, and high energy with an excellent cross-section of the Smoke catalog and great covers sprinkled in.

THEY COVERED BLACK SABBATH'S PLANET CARAVAN AND I NEARLY LOST MY FECES.

Sunday, Crockett's Breakfast Camp for Cathead Stacker biscuits (eggas over easy, fried bologna, cheddar cheese), a brief stroll through the city founded by Keith Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers, the once again back roads and long way all the way home. Hit part of the Blue Ridge Parkway but jumped off once we got thirsty. Finally got home around 8:00 pm, flopped into the Big Chair and was a lazy slug until finally going to bed.

There's no other way to put it: THE WEEKEND WENT TO 11.




Typical I guess

Went to see Sol Driven Train at Party at the point. They were good.

Went out in the boat late Saturday afternoon and hung out on the sand bar behind Sullivan's Island for a few hours. Lots of boats and the harbor was rough af, but didn't care because I was on the boat. Hung out around the house the rest of the day.

Went to some friends house for a brunch, that later turned into a drunken argument when we got home, which had continued from Saturday night, so that was fun. Ended up later at the Southern for a burger and then came home and watched Catch-22 on Hulu. It was pretty good.

Was at the beach all week last week, so that was nice. Friday waded out into the bay and caught some more trout based off of info from the guide I went out with the previous day. Finally cooked some, and found it to be the most delicious fish I've ever eaten.

Floated in the ocean most of the day Saturday, trying to sweat out all the beer I had drank prior in the week. Ended up giving up and continuing to drink beer. Golf carted around on the beach for an hour or so, had a nice little afternoon.

Up early Sunday for the trip home, not a bad ride other than having to go through Atlanta. South Carolina drivers made all of us look bad per usual, driving in the left lane, braking for no reason, etc. Brutal run up 85. Feels like I sat down for about 10 minutes yesterday, then it's back to the interstate today. Pretty much wish I could never come back to Greenville again in my life.

and then hit the 26 in Asheville to 85 because I THOUGHT it would be quicker since we were ready to get home. I should have continued on 74 and gone through Chimney Rock-Lake Lure-Shelby all the way to Highway 5 like I originally wanted to do. Wreck on 26 and...well, 85 is 85.

perfect strike to an open 6-year old WR in the endzone who then proceeded to drop the pass because he was 6.

Son went to DW4 camp at Clemson and it was cool. He is 6 and just getting into athletics so his skill level is low. Luckily all the other little shits are the same way. He had fun, spent time in Clemson, drove alot.

Did other stuff. Wife and daughter were at Bring Your Daughter to Clemson weekend and they loved it (as usual).

Busy weekend. Dad also drove the golf cart into the pool pump, piping, and filter so it drained out and had to be repaired on Saturday. He said the accelerator got stuck but that is exactly why he only gets to dive a golf cart these days. He THINKS he can still drive a car.

Friday - played in a golf tourney up in G-vegas with my dad. Drove up Friday mawn, and listened to Mackey to see what all the fuss was about. Whichever jounger ##### on him is spot on - his voice is pretty hard to listen to. Golf tourney was good, spent time w/ pops - 8/10 b/c didn't win

Saturday - chilled at home and laid by the pool. drank beer, watched golf, cooked some burgers for supper - 9/10

Sunday - chilled around the house. went back to the pool. neighborhood has a couple of new hotties that i'll have to sneak some ninjas...caught me off guard, but should have some opportunities for memorial day weekend coming up. watched golf and drank beer, then cooked steaks for GoT finale - 9/10

Fri - played golf, shot 82. Not terrible but can't putt a lick. Went to Hops and Hogs festival downtown that evening (bbq festival, not fat chicks festival), had some good whole hog bbq and some beers.

Sat - played in member-member tournament with my brother. We won our flight ($80), then played nine more in after tourney skins game. Chipped in for birdie on #4, netted $175 on that one. Pretty #### happy! Drank too many beers.

Sun - Rotated tires on the Pilot. It was every bit as shitty as you would think it would be. Hot af, sweated buckets but got it done. Played golf, shot 78 but still can't putt a lick. Did take $5 off of the other team though. Slice of pizza and some beer at pizza joint afterwards.

Mon - tired af from playing golf three days in a row, but not tired enough to not enjoy some redhead things before coming into work. Been a pretty good start to the week, and get to play Augusta National tomorrow.

TL,DR - golf, beer, sex. 10/10.
