Somethings are better seen when they are in your rear view mirror....

This will be my last entry for a while. I am going on a sabbatical until spring....... Don't worry! I'm not dying, I didn't just find out I'm some baby's daddy and I'm not going into rehab so don't get all concerned... I just have some stuff I need to get worked out...... It will all be groovy, I'm not the most religious guy in the world BUT I do know there's someone upstairs because they have gotten me out of a few jams in my life.

So set you phaser guns to FUN because it's time for a wild and wacky time with Andy......
Let me ask you, had enough of politicians "pissin' on your back tellin' you it's raining"?? Well you're in luck because Joe the plumber asked me to update my blog and try to help the country heal mentally.... So here we go!!!!

Things are starting to whine down here at casa de McBride. One of the last things I will do before I hibernate fo…
And when I die..........
This is a bonus entry for ya if you can find it and you don't mind reading and not seeing any pictures..... I need to write this down so I will never forget the way I'm feeling right now..... I went and saw my grandpa at the nursing home and consider myself a man but I have been on the verge of crying ever since then...... I'm not sure he recognized me at all and could hardly talk...... I'm pretty upset that a man who was so strong mentally and physically up until now doesn't have much of a mind anymore and is very feeble looking.... More than likely this will be the last time I see him so I made it a point to tell him that I loved him....... I know I have said it before but the cycle of life sure can suck!!!!! OK!!! I promise the next entry I write will be funny and have pictures..... Have a good night...

Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto....

Phase II has begun and been completed....... Give me a rake and shovel and I can accomplish anything!!! Of course it took me a while but I got it done...... Great Caesar's ghost!!! I returned the Bobcat almost a month ago and while I am out there spreading gravel I think about how I would of had all of it spread out in a freakin' day if I still had it. Oh well........ So thanks to Picasa I created a little movie for ya so sit back with your bag of popcorn and enjoy the show....





Pretty sweet huh?? Can you say Oscar????? OK so it isn't a full blown movie with actors, special effects or a scrip but like an oriental massage parlor it does have a happy ending!!!!!!! Almost everyday after work I would come home and spend an hour out there. It has taken me about a month to finally be able to move the boat on to it but if you ask me it was well worth it...

And now let's talk a little about the ditch....... Now don't get me wrong, I love when we ge…

"Houston... That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."
All this time I thoughtthe ditch would be the end of mebut with help from Boike, a rented Bobcat, a couple cases of the nectar of the Gods, PBR, and a good back bone I choke slammed the ditch into submission! This is not the first time the dynamic duel got together to fight the evil forces of the world!!! This was like 15 years ago at the love shack baby love shack, I mean the lake house. You show me someone that graduated from CCHS in 1992 and I will show you a person that took part in 'extra curriculum activities' down there..... Anyways, a big tree fell on it and we were commissioned by Mr and Mrs. Boike to tear it down and boy did we!!!!!

That's my truck at the time being used to knock a wall down. MMMMM To be young and care free again!!!!!

OK...... The first thing I had to do was have all the utility lines marked so we didn't accidentally rupture the gas line while diggi…

HULLABALOO!!!!!!!

My aunt and God mother, although she had forgotten that part until I reminded her of it like 5 years ago, Nancyinformed me that she enjoys the pictures on my blog but she is not too sure about all the hullabaloo I write about.


Thatsilly lady had me confused. I didn't know what that word meant. So my aunt Kathy informed me of what that word meant as well as told me that there was a show with that name back in the 60's. LIKE GROOVY MAN!!!!!

Now that we are straight with the meaning of hullabaloo it's time for another entry on the best BLOG on the net!!!!!
Now for like 15 years, give or take a few years when I was in WI. or the Boikes were in Co., we would spend July 4th on Lake Wylie at the Boike Lakeland, MMMMMMMMMMMM!!!! Great times,


I went up to the Boike farm up in Va.. Sure it was weird not being down at the lake but hey things change, HELLO THAT'S LIFE! In all it was a good time and I realized that no matter where we are for the 4th there will be someo…

MULCH-A-PALOOZA

Gas is $4 a gallon now but I still love having my truck!!!!! BEHOLD!!!!! A 1997 F-150 with a 5.8 V8!!!! It drinks gas faster than an alcoholic who has not had a drink in two days!!!! But I wouldn't change a thing!!! When it's time for mulch all I do is go the the dump and pick up a load and start spreading it!!!!



Pretty sweet deal!!!!! Sure does beat going to Lowes or Home Depot and buying a 2 Cu. Ft. of the stuff for $5.00!!!! Can you say "rip off"!?!?! If I say so myself, I think the old F-150 still looks great for all the stuff it's been through like going through a WI. winter and then being loaded down and towing a Mustang for a 15 hour trip when I moved back here in 2001, pucked in, slept in, plus hauling a boat around and going to and from Talladega, MMMMMMMM dega, towing a Scotty.


HE HE HE HE!!!! I found a picture of the day I got it back in 12/98..... WOW!!!! That was almost 10 years ago!!!! Where does the time go???????


OK! Back to the subj…
