OK! Now on to the WORLD TOUR 2011! I'm soooooooooooo going to have a running dairy
OH WELL!!!! I bet they didn't get 40+ MPG like I did!!! 'ANDY' 1 'People that go faster than 60MPH' 0!!!! WOO HOO!!!! When I got into town I hung out with my Grandma McBride and she is still as spunky as ever! She can hardly see anything but BY GOD she'll do it and DAMN YOU for asking if she needs help. I learn something new every time I see her. KRIPES she told me that grandpa was in a car wreck when he was 17 and was in a FREAKIN' coma for 3 weeks! GREAT GOOGLY MOOGLY! She also had me go through some photo albums and take whatever pictures I wanted. I found this one and gotta HUGE CHUCKLE when I saw it..... Here's proof that I'm not the only smart @$$ in the family, This is my dad, Uncle Bob and Uncle Dick back in he 70's!!!
Friday 6-24 Mansfield, OH
and how our step grandfather Russ was WAY BEFORE HIS TIME when it came to being 'green'. He built a piping system made of black PVC pipe on his roof to help heat his pool. He didn't do it to save the earth, he did it because he thought he could save $!
Saturday 6-25 Allegany, NY
So when I say 'HOLY SH UH T AH K W UH LAKE' (with a 1 millisecond pause between SH UH and I say the rest of the word) and you got a problem with me saying it then write a letter to the Seneca Nation Tribe and complain to them about how one of the names they have in their language can be used as a cuss word. HOLY $@#T, also go and gamble at their casino! “WHITE MAN has screwed us over for 400+ years BUT WE HAVE the final laugh! It's called gambling!!! THE WHITE MAN LOVES TO GAMBLE and we LOVE taking your $!” I also stopped their because it has FREE WIFI!!!! Public housing= free WiFi! SAME THING RIGHT!?!?!? ANYWAYS, If you wanna see Amercana at it's finest then go to a small town parade,
Sunday 6-26 Bolivar, NY
Hung out with my cousin Jeff who might be the FUNNIEST man EVER, and his wife today.
He took me to Texas Hots which is ALWAYS yummy and I got to hang out with one of his sons Connor! In this picture we had our mind on our $ and our $ on our mind...
then we went to SUNNY HILL which is a camper park up on a hill and drank a few more beers and sat around with my uncles/aunts and cousins, one that is dating a guy with a SWEET Kawasaki motorcycle! Oh and Princess Lea AKA Anne, my cousin snapped this picture of my God Daughter and I and after she had a 'MISSION ACCOMPLISHED' cigarette..... LIGHT EM' IF YA GOT EM'!!!
Also went to see some old friends and a OBI (Olean Business Institute) graduate, My mom and Lynda Kockler went there back in the sixties (to basically be a secretary) and Steve worked with my dad.
They took me to 'DA BEEF' The Beef and Barrel for lunch then Steve showed me around the Olean Airport, YES THERE IS ONE, KRIPES! I even have the shirt to prove it!
Then I took Kara and another friend of ours who's UMMMMMMMM 'well endowed' to dinner at Angees,
When I was done there I grabbed some lunch right next to the stadium and then went downtown to HSBC Arena where the Sabres play and loaded up on more t-shirts. Everything was half off! I don't know why but I'll take it!!!! It was like shopping at Big Lots! BRAND NAMES at CLOSE OUT prices ya know!!!!!! Then I went and hung out with my great uncle Bernie! He's pretty funny and told me some GREAT stories about my grandfather........ Christine then took me to the Ale House where we ate and her HOT friend let me check out her money maker while pretending to eat and UMMMMMM 'borrowed' a glass out of the establishment!!!!!! WOO HOO!!! Now I can enjoy a cold one in my Bills pint glass while they are getting CRUSHED and remember when Darryl Talley wore a Spider Man under shirt while the Bills were doing the CRUSHING of wimpy teams!!
No I ain't a freak, You see, I think it was circa 1980, Big Ron decided to 'extend' the chimney. As you can clearly see, it was NOT the best masonry job EVER! The bricks don't match, some would say, not even close. FUNNY! I wanted this picture so the next time he 'questions' my abilities, I will simply show him this picture and remind him where my 'abilities' come from. I sometimes can't remember what I had for lunch a few days ago BUT I sure as hell remember this SUPERB masonry job from 30+ years ago. Went to my friend Kara's house where her daughter Brynn DEMANDED that we watch some Justin Bieber videos...... Let me tell ya, IT WAS A JOY (rolling my eyes).
We then went to lunch at, DARE I SAY, the BEST EFFING PIZZA PLACE EVER!!!!! Things are 'different' between us BUT I really like helping her with the knowledge I have and helping her and Brynn with what I hear from this guy's pod casts. She doesn’t treat me like LITTLE ANDY that needs help wiping my nose. She had some money 'issues' and we spent the whole afternoon writing down all of her expenses and coming up with a budget for her and I thought of some other stuff that might help her and Brynn.... First and foremost! EVERY ONE needs to get this book! He explains stuff a lot better then I do! Anyways, I went back to Bolivar and hung out with my cousin Jeff and Kari and drank a few beers and he filled me in on some of the DRAMA that ALL families have!!!
KIDDING!!!! We drove in style there. That's a 'CHOPPED' 57 CHEVY BOYS AND GIRLS!
Drove down to Emporium, PENN-SA-TUCKY and I came with a gift to my cousin's wife Amanda. Just call me DR. CANCER!
She proofreads my blog. It use to be Steph but she has a 'CABANA BOY' and she is unreliable now. Got a little equation for ya: a carton of smokes $47/ 8 packs- $5.88 a pack X 365 days a year= $2144.38. Hope those cigarettes are worth it. She also gave me a gift! WOO HOO! HOOTERS RULE!!
We cooked in STYLE! Filet BEEEEEOOOOOOOTCHES!!!!!!! It was even more yummy thanks to Joe's BITCHIN' recipe for grilling ANIMAL!!!!!!
- Red wine vinegar
- Coarse black pepper
- Garlic Salt
- Season Salt
- Splash red wine vinegar on both sides of the steak.
- Use coarse black pepper on both sides of the steak.
- Sprinkle garlic salt on one side, and season salt on the other side.
Carb and his awesome wife and two (FUNNY AS HELL) little boys live in a SWEET house that has a FREAKIN MAID BELL so you can RING your woman and say!!! “WOMAN! I WANT MORE POTATOES!!!!” HA!!!!!
He's an attorney and his 'advice' on issues that arise are priceless. On a sobering note, he took me to the Flight 93 site....I still can't wrap my head around that flying a plane into a building and killing innocent people all in the name of your religion is justified.
all hung out and relaxed in a pool and YES some beer was consumed.
having people pass out in a hammock, heading out in the middle of the night and finding a cove to drink while listening to the hair nation on Sirius, watching a punk with a white man Afro and wearing a wet suit talk smack about how good of a knee boarder they are and watch them do a face plant while trying to do a 'dock start', taking a bowie in the dead of night then taking pictures with it as if we caught a huge fish, but it was groovy.
Wednesday 7-6 HOME L-TOWN (Lancaster, SC)
PEPE LE PEW's that read this!
OH and in case you were wondering, I think I drank enough beer the last two weeks to fill this TANKER. I think I need to take a break for a few weeks BUT I have a dilemma. You see, when I go on my 'tour' people I go and see get PBR because they know I like it and when I'm about to leave they say "NOT SO FAST SON, You are taking the rest of the PBR because I'm sure as HECK not gonna drink it." So I have a refrigerator full of it.
Making the 5th anniversary of living in 'L' town at casa de McBride, I will mention MONUMENTAL moments from the past 5 FREAKING years until 9-2011: This months marks the first time I had to get up on my HOT @$$ roof and fix a leak! I sweated soooo bad! It was like if OJ had to take the witness stand in 1994! Remember y'all, "Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars."
