Meanwhile, at yet another horse show (HITS), dear daughter and Carpe Diem begin competing. After all of his acupuncture he’s feeling great and showing well.

Good luck my beautiful miss! Oh, and to you too horse face.

@Nagles - why would you charge more to substitute frozen veggies for french fries? Stupid policy. Last visit here. #nagles #stupid #thinkaboutyourpolicy (at Nagles)

An Observation

What’s with all these over-40 hot, fit, six-pack dads and all these 20-something jiggling flab bags? It’s been a noticeable trend at the beach the past few weeks.

The world is upside down. Used to be the younger guys were hot and the older ones were sliding back into the earth with cholesterol clogged veins and massive amounts of gut fat crushing their internal organs.

Our Monday Blues

Consisted of blue skies, blue water and blue glasses. A wide open expanse of beach greeted us this morning. eBoy couldn’t wait to get to the water today. Dear daughter actually joined us. The waves were perfect for body surfing.

This evening we had pasta dinner in the living room while watching E.T. (the first time for the kids!) BP is on a jet plane flying back to us tonight. That is all.

Guess where we were this morning? If you guessed Mr. Leatherman in the village you would be wrong (unfortunately). Stopped by Dover Saddlery to drop off a bag of money. #missequestrian #horses #leathergear #tack (at Dover Saddlery - Branchburg, NJ)

I come from the school of it’s-never-too-soon to entertain properly. So after setting up eBoy’s summer prize-the beach shelter-he promptly and politely asked me if I would get snacks for him and his friends.

How could I say no?

Throwback Thursday - Pool Time at Ms. Mari’s

This was just a few years ago. Now Ms. Mari gone up and moved to a new home. I hope she brings the floaty things.

Quick Parenting ProTip

You have to tell kids everything. Fucking everything. Really.

Little example:

Daddy: (noticing empty tp holder) “Hey, did you just poop?”

eBoy: “Yeah”

Daddy: “How did you wipe your butt without any paper?”

eBoy: “I didn’t”

Daddy: :-\

eBoy: :-)

Daddy: “Um, so you just got up and that was that?”

eBoy: “Yeah”

Daddy: “Did you know you could use Kleenex instead?”

eBoy: “No”

Daddy: “Okay please keep that in mind for future reference. Or you can just scream at the top of your lungs that there’s no tp. Got that?”

eBoy: “Okay Daddy.”
