generic blog post posted on Monday

I haven't written anything in awhile. Friday I dropped Deb and the girls off at the campsite with Deb's friend Amy. I had to come back and take care of the dog. Of course, I immediately went to the bar and got smashed. I really have to stop doing that.

I wasn't as hung-over Saturday morning as I deserved, so I drove out to the camp-grounds and stayed all day and overnight and had a great time. Took Alex, Savannah and Sidney kayaking in the little lake they have there. The place is surrounded by camp sites, some of them with huge mobile home like campers with permanent picket fences around them, and the people stay there six months out of the year pretty cheap. It would be a nice way to live.

I swiped Clear and Present Danger by Tom Clancy from the club-house there at the campsite.

Since Sunday was Father's Day, I lounged around the campsite all morning and did nothing while the women-folk served me breakfast. That's the way it ought to be.

It was very relaxing, and we came home yesterday. I ended up running 11 miles, but I had set out to do 14.

Today at a building downtown I connected an air-conditioning control system with the Internets and allowed remote access for the company that runs the system. I talked someone out of getting their laptop fixed because the money they would have spent would have been enough to buy a new one. I'm still getting paid to transfer the files and such.

I'm reading I Am America, and So Can You! by Stephen Colbert. I was laughing so hard, Alex thought I was crying in bed. Which I wasn't. I was laughing.
