I bet those poor bastards out in CA. WISH they had this problem/ "I can't complain but sometimes I still do." Joe Walsh 1978...

 BEFORE I get into the stuff I did to casa de McBride, I want to apologize for being a moody, self centered, @$$ hole to my parents, my brother and his wife. I just remember what Christmas used to be to me and I can't forget that.... I hate what I am becoming, a bitter hermit, but I think that is what life is directing me towards. I really do live a very undramatic life but I STILL get very depressed on, mostly Sundays.... I think it boils down to the fact that I worry about EVERYTHING that is my my life on that day AND I REALLY don't like this time of the year (READ THE SENTENCE IN RED AGAIN). Also I know that I have to 'deal' with stuff whether my job, the house, my life as of now and what I could have done in the past to change certain parts of it. Also the world lost one of the best teachers EVER!!!! His name was Mr. Mansour  and he was a HUGE influence on me!!! He taught my older brother and was going to retire the year before I was to have him but he told me, not sure if it's ALL true, that he wanted to teach me and then retire...  He was a great man and someone I think of at least weekly.... I could commit a whole blog entry to him but I will not now, MAYBE in the future.  Plus the world lost another great person last month.....Lemmy was not 'so polised' looking but he was a very smart guy with some great stuff to say. Oh and some might say that his band, 'Motorhead' was just a dirty 'garage band' BUT I totally disagree with that!!!!! Now for the record, I LOVE milk but apparently Lemmy did not.



 One last thing while I am on the 'Andy's COMPLAIN-PA-LOOZA 2016', I LOATH and HATE to say this but I can only do on major thing at a time and I have to take breaks OFTEN because I loose my balance more often when I am tired. So that is another reason this blog entry is so late....

  SORRY to be such a 'downer' today and for posting this later than usual (It has rained A LOT the past month and I am not a big fan of having to work in the mud......) GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!! Enough of me whining!!!! Sorry AGAIN about that 'poor old me' moment. LET'S get to the 'meat and potatoes' of this entry. When it rains, it pretty much runs down the side of my house. With the fact that I am trying to ACTUALLY grow grass back there and make it presentable, I built a wall to TRY to prevent all the grass seed and soil from running off into the abyss!



DANG NABBIT!!!! The battery died while I was out running some errands!!!! FYI- this was the first time that I used the 'time lapse' feature on my iTouch so LESSON learned!!! Plug it in at all times!!!

WOO HOO!!!! I know how to operate my iTouch so here is what I did the following weekend.


  CURSES!!!! The dang sun wreaked havoc on the process, so there are parts of the movie you can't see because the sun light is soooooooooooooooooooooo strong.... SORRY but here is what I did on the 2nd day.



Here is the final result:


 I also had to make my run off (I guess that's what you call it) wider. So after SEVERAL Saturdays, one in a freaking rain storm, I was soaking wet and thank God I didn't wear white like this girl did, it's done!!! UGH! Working in the mud soooooo suuuuuuuuuuuuuucks!!!! I spent ALL of the MLK holiday weekend working on this just so I could FINALLY post this entry.....


 HA!!! ANYWAYS, Here is the result and I am very proud to say that the rocks in it are from:

 Now on to other projects like redoing the back room...
HA!!!! This is soooooooooooooooooo going to be me when 'I kick the bucket'....

Oh and remember kids "You don't owe anyone ANYTHING except your GD mom who brought you into this world". I need to remember this the next time I think it's a good idea to push my mom's buttons about something....

Love how you collected rocks from places in your past and present. I forgive you from being a moody elf. Your brother can be bah humbug at Xmas too. Grandma's parties must have been the best ever!
