The Early Bird Special


When your birthday falls in November and your family knows you live and breathe all things Halloween two great things happen.

First, you get presents before Halloween because you get Halloween decorations for gifts and it wouldn’t make sense to give them to you after Halloween. Second, you get Halloween decorations for presents.

Awesome, right? Well it is.

Behold this years wonderful gift my my son Julio, my daughter-in-law Nicole and my beautiful granddaughter Jemma:

My granddaughter is three and she made these at her daycare.  Autumn artwork. Fantastic.  As  a side note, if you look to the right of the cat, you’ll see a Cheeto. Jemma’s little cousin Jayde put it in the box when they were packing it up to send to me. My dog, Hamish was over joyed at that. Me too. I love cheetos.

Last year they gave me this gem:

Halloween is fun, birthdays are fun and if you can roll them together it’s heavenly.

The only thing thing cooler than that is to have a Halloween birthday like my Aunt Sharon, but that’s another story for another time



My Dear Bones- Jemma and my son Julio- his nickname is Bone by the way. I gave him that name.

Yes really. I just couldn’t help myself.

Captain Kirk Is REALLY On Deck!

You might think you’re cool and maybe you are pretty darn awesome

but you will



be as cool as the crew who really flew into space 


Captain James T. Kirk

Shatner milked his upcoming flight for laughs last week at New York Comic Con. The actor said Blue Origin informed him he would be the oldest guy in space.

“I don’t want to be known as the oldest guy in space. I’m bloody Captain Kirk!” he exclaimed. Then he stammered in a faux-panicky voice: “Captain Kirk, going where no man … I’m going what? Where am I going?”

Shatner shooting into space is “the most badass thing I think I’ve ever seen,” said Joseph Barra, a bartender flown in from Los Angeles to help cater Blue Origin’s launch week festivities. “William Shatner is setting the bar for what a 90-year-old man can do.”

Well Mr. Barra- he is freaking Captain Kirk 🙂
