Thursday evening Kim came home & we pretty much left immediately to see “Spiderman: Homecoming”.  FANTASTIC movie!  I know comic book movies aren’t for everyone, but I’m all in for the Marvel & DC comic book movies!  “300” & “300 Rise of an Empire” were really good as well.  I couldn’t get into “Sin City” or any other graphic novel movies though.

 

That was our Thursday evening.  Friday morning we woke up & weren’t sure what to do with ourselves.  I had 3 things that needed to be done.  We went out in the late afternoon.  I had my Roughrider jersey from Andy Fantuz fixed, Kim picked up a few groceries we needed for supper.  Brewster & I went along but stayed in the vehicle.  He loves going for a “car ride”.  A “ride” in the summer means he gets to drool/pant all over my arm until we’re somewhere I can roll down the window for him!

Friday, after the few errands were done, we just stayed home.  I watched the Toronto Blue Jays actually win a game & Kim put the house back together after a morning of cleaning.  She doesn’t just clean, she does “spring cleaning” every weekend.  Everything is 10 feet away from where it’s supposed to be so she can clean underneath where it was!  I just try to stay out of her way!

Saturday we went over to my parents place for some BBQ ribs after an afternoon in the backyard, with my mother & aunt.  I found out the hard way that Molson original 16 in a can is a wee bit too carbonated for me, I switched to rum & coke!

Sundays are pretty quiet here.  Kim’s got a few things left on the grocery list.  I made a juice for the week.  Peeled all remaining carrots to BBQ them then keep them handy in the fridge.  BBQ carrots & onion are commonly a vegetable for supper or some type of broccoli dish, I love broccoli!  I’m in the middle of a Blue Jays game at the moment.

That’s our weekend here.  Remember it will be quiet on the blog page until Thursday again, I’ll catch you then!

 

IF YOU’RE HERE FOR THE UPDATE, THAT’S ALL THAT I HAVE FOR YOU TODAY.

 

Another reason for me to NOT buy terrible overpriced Molson beer at the new Mosaic Stadium!  $9 for a regular size can of Pilsner, Coors, or Coors Light……..NOT HAPPENING!

http://globalnews.ca/video/3594992/we-had-our-hopes-up-sask-craft-brewers-disappointed-their-beer-wont-be-sold-at-mosaic-stadium

http://regina.ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=1167315&binId=1.1165847&playlistPageNum=1#_gus&_gucid=&_gup=Facebook&_gsc=8qmzzbP

No Bushwakker’s or Rebellion?!?  No more beer for me at the new Mosaic stadium!  This no local beer really bugs me since the Saskatchewan Roughriders are a “community owned” team.  I don’t typically drink beer at a game, but lots of others do, & most of them don’t seem to care what it is as long as there is alcohol in it.  This “no community craft beer” rule is a laughable situation.  “Kick the little guy while we let the big corporate Molson Brewing control all & reap the benefits by charging our customers 300% than the store bought price”

If I really need to, I’ll get drunk at home, on craft beer & pay less while doing so.

FYI, I’ve only seen Molson Canadian being consumed by those that have just turned the legal age to drink alcohol or at a football game.  It’s like Fosters beer in Australia, Australians don’t drink much Foster’s beer from what I hear?

 

Haha!  Stone Sour #1 on Billboard hard rock charts.  It was just a matter of time.

Really, if this is retired life, I don’t want it.  BORING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I’d much rather be exercising & improving my girlish figure……………….I mean my slightly larger girlish figure.  With no license I stay in our condo FAR more than needed.

People ask me why I wear shorts year round?  Well, I’m always warm/hot & sweating, I’m outside just long enough to get in a vehicle, all of our windows face south which makes it uncomfortable for me since I can’t switch on the air, & I usually work out.  Anything over 24 degrees Celcius (75.2 Fahrenheit) too hot for me!

I wish they would come to Calgary, Regina or Winnipeg.  Calgary’s a 7:30 hour drive & Winnipeg’s 6:00 hour, I’ve made the 2:30 hour drive to Saskatoon too many times.  It’s flat, the highway is busy, & it’s EXTREMELY boring.  2:30 hours to Saskatoon feels like a 10:00 hour drive.

By the end of this album, it’s pretty much metal with the amazing vocals of Myles Kennedy!

Already a couple of concerts for me next year, & Guns n’ Roses in August, in Regina for everyone else.

It’s not that Guns n’ Roses aren’t good at what they do, it just seems to be somewhat repetitive to me.  I own “Appetite for Destruction” on CD & I’ve listened to it probably 3 times.  It really does nothing for me.  It’s buried in the closet with my other CDs.

I don’t think former Toronto Blue Jay free agent, Edwin Encarnacion, is totally gone yet.  The Blue Jays have signed 2 guys both DH/1B players.  I don’t want the recently signed Kendrys Morales to ever see his glove again.  He can hit, but that’s all I’d have him do.  They also signed Steve Pearce on Monday he can play 1B, 2B, 3B, LF, RF or DH.  Morales at DH, Pearce in LF, & Encarnacion at 1B?  I’d try to trade Upton junior & Justin Smoak for a relief pitcher that might be a stretch though?  I don’t know if you’d get anything for them.  As for Jose Bautista, I’m good with him signing or not to Toronto.  He’s overpriced and on the downside of his baseball career.  If the Jays sign outfielder Dexter Fowler that could mean the end of Encarnacion signing, unless Encarnacion agrees to a cheap short term contract.  If they don’t sign Fowler, they can throw $30 million a year for 2 years at Encarnacion.  Right now, Edwin Encarnacion is more of an afterthought for teams that we’re interested.  He should have taken the Jays offer of $80 million over 4 years.  Hindsight is 20/20 though.

Have you seen the movie “Shooter” starring Mark Wahlberg?  He’s producing a TV series on Bravo based on the movie.  I just watched the 4th episode from Tuesday night.  It’s really good!  If you haven’t been watching the series since the 2nd episode, you might find it confusing now.  If you’ve seen the movie you might be OK.

DISCLAIMER!!  I’M NOT A RELIABLE SOURCE CONSERNING POLITICS!!!!!  I’M THE LAST PERSON YOU WANT TO TALK TO REGARDING POLITICS.

 

To say I’m disappointed with the outcome of the election is not even close to how I feel.  I can’t change it or fix it.  This was a slam dunk for Hillary.  WWIII, it’s coming.  I’m more scared now than I’ve ever been.  Trump has been accused of sexual assault.  So has Bill Cosby.  I’d take Bill Cosby over Trump.  At least Bill Cosby gave us something, stand-up comedy, The Cosby Show, Kids say the Darndessed Things, &, Jell-O Pudding commercials.  What has Trump given you?  The Apprentice & a book.  I was nervous before, & now I’m terrified!  America just elected a terrorist as President.  Enjoy your 4 years of a worse George Bush Jr.!  I’ll be in my bomb shelter, see you in 4 years!  Even Stephen Colbert is close being speechless.

 

“I can’t believe the news today….”

I went out last night for a beer tasting.  I come home, try to relax, turn on the TV to see what I’d hoped to see, & drop my jaw that Trump is leading?  I changed the channel to see if anyone else is reporting the same stuff or if this was a mistake?  It wasn’t.  Watched some Netflix, Kim went to bed, I watched more election coverage, felt myself getting angry & went to bed.

 

I was watching TV after I posted my blog.  I was in the kitchen & heard an ad for “Tropical Orange Juice”.  I thought the ad was for “Trumpical Orange Juice” oh, did I have a good chuckle!  No wonder his complexion is orange!
