Hey Dawg, enjoyed the pictures of your Golden.
How old?
I had a GR, Bear, for 11 years and now the wife is wanting another.
Really don't want three dogs at once.
Now have a Black Lab 12 years old with almost as much grey as yours.
I'm surprised that he still gets around so well and can still jump into the truck bed.
Also a mixed breed, 75% Lab.

Had a nice lunch with an old college roomate. We plan to do it once a month or so.

Ling cod, which is hard to match.

Up at my normal time (0600),
put coffee on and went for daily 3-4 mile run/walk with Coal (black lab),
had coffee/breakfast while checking email and web surfing,
took the boat out to one of the islands to collect rocks for a landscaping project, spent much of the morning throwing the tennis ball in the lake for Coal to retrieve,
went to restaurant on the lake for lunch (nice salad),
back home and did some tax loss harvesting (moved from one ETF to another),
went to nearby town (15 miles) for groceries,
picked up Chinese food for dinner.
Fairly relaxed day......life is good.

Hey, that's my kind of day. Unfortunately I'm taking a time out from full retirement. I got up at 6:30am, put on some coffee, reviewed my Fidelity acct , worked from 7:30 - 3:00, drove to the vet and picked up meds for the mutt, then drove to the company to pick up more w*rk and got a flu shot there, now back home about to have a pizza with a can of my medicine.(health nut you know). Work a couple more hours tonight as I plan to slip off tomorrow and play some golf.

It moved through quicker than first forecast. Only 30% chance tomorrow, so I could be disappointed. See the link, shows the main stuff in your neck of the woods.

today is one of those days i just live for under FIRE...a volunteer day!
i am going downtown to sort out and package for wrapping, about 10 boxes of donated xmas toys for an upcoming kids party. therefore i get to play with, oops organize, teddy bears and reindeer and snowmen and puppies and dollies and games and coloring books (yes i still color).
i have to test drive these toys, ya know, to make sure they work properly.
i will be dressing up as an elf for the party in early December. i plan to be nauseatingly cute!

Crawled outta the sack about 9am, and got cleaned up.

Surfed the 'net, checked email, read news, checked in here, etc.

Went to the Mexican restaurant for lunch....3 tacos and a double order of refried beans.

Went to Walgreens to get a new bottle of fish oil.

Went to my Doc's office to get yelled at.....test results from yesterday's blood sample......I was surprised as heck......he said everything came back looking quite good! And here I was all set to get chewed out! Dang! What a let down!

Took my Mom's car through the carwash (it was filthy), and filled it up with gas (not from the refreid beans ). The car was soo filthy, that the carwash didn't cause much improvement.....so I hand washed it when I got home.....and hand washed my HHR also. Both are nice and clean and shiny again! YEA!!!

Installed the newest version of iTunes...ate supper....watched TV....surfing the 'net again.....and getting ready to hit the pillows again!

I had to go out to the joint that installed my car's remote starter, and have them put new batteries in the remote, then re-sinc it with the car.....and drank their free coffee. After that I got my Mom's car and remotes and went out and did the same thing....and drank their free coffee.

Came back home and got my car, and went to the coffee joint for breakfast...and to drink their coffee...39 with my 'senior' discount.

Goofed off the rest of the day.....and surfed the 'net.

Went outside at about 5:35pm to watch the ISS and Space Shuttle fly over! Cool.....both the fly-over AND the weather....25F!

Oops! I hear my supper calling me!

Today it was cool and windy so no golf. Stayed home all day and got in a good 8 hours of work for my old company. Couple of more weeks to go on the project and it will be nice to get paid again. Tomorrow, leaves to rake and a few more hours of work on this project. Of course I've got to watch some college football.

Got out of bed around 9:30 a.m. Made some foo foo coffee, stumbled around the house in my thick comfy robe (yeah it is cold today in Dallas). Poked around the forum off and on today while being domestic. A friend called from DFW and told me he was on his way to Vegas...that sob. Made spaghetti and meatballs for dinner, drank some wine, smeared some charcoal on a piece of paper and now here I am...going to bed soon.

Exciting, huh?

Besides the usual, get up'n get moseying, web surfing and generally annoying the forum.

Changed out all the doorknobs in the house for lever type. DW is most appreciative.

Resume goofing off.
