This is what I learned this weekend:

1. People love pumpkin pie, huh?

9. Today is my 13th wedding anniversary. Here's to finishing that night drinking Bud or Heineken.

10. Does anyone ever give a shit about Alien life at this point? I mean groceries cost $150 minimum every  time you shop. unless they can make my bills cheaper...who cares.

So so sorry

 I have been a little caught up with the colder weather at work that it had slipped my mind to update this blog.


This is what I learned since last time I was here:

1. In my older age I have tried to be more chill when it comes to traffic but god damn I CAN'T - these drivers have only gotten worse.

2. The Goal Post may have colder beers than the Fowler House...that is eye opening.

3. My Golden Tee game is slipping. My putting is gone. Just not there.

4. Glad to see Chris Leaden is out there golfing when its 40 degrees out there.

5. I say it every year but knock it the fuck off with the pumpkin spice flavored everything.

6. Stuffed pork loin is underrated.

7. I don't think Veterans Day gets enough love.

There are...

 only 8 weeks left in the year!


This is what I learned this weekend:

1. Some times you just need a nice relaxing weekend.

3. Some people adult better than others.

4. Why the fuck are we still moving clocks and arbitrarily changing times?

7. Chrissy is out here working 3 jobs- 1 full time and 2 part timers! That's a family man.

8. Still hearing rumors that Smiddy is coming back to BU.

9. Also back to the Patriots, as bad as Frick and Frack ran the show last season, the team averaged 21.41 points per game. This season they are averaging 15 points per game. So were they the problem?

10. When did Xmas start November 1st and not after Thanksgiving?

11. Nothing makes me smile like random texts from people you haven't chatted with in a bit.

12. Has anyone used Warby Parker for glasses before?


Have a great week, Friday is a holiday so Thank a Veteran!

5. Don't forget the Powerball is up over 600 Mill!

15. I know that Springfield is a ways a way but their casino vibe is better than Encore.
