Day seven is brilliant! Yay!

Good Morning Sobrinators! Good to see the bus so full (again) this weekend.

Mrs.Non returned from her business trip last night. My son has taken a summer internship in Florida and he leaves later this morning. But first - one of my favorite things - a BIG FAMILY BREAKFAST. Yours truly is about to get his bacon on!

After that it's another yard work day for me. The azaleas have lost their blooms, so it's time to trim them back.

Be well all!

Any mention of Batman and I remember that commercial with the knocked unconscious football player...

"Do you know where you are?"

"Sure, coach! NYCity!"

"Do you know who you are?"

"Sure, coach! I'm Batman!"

I ate bacon last night. Today for dinner it will be sausage and Taylor Pork Roll.

Did somebody mention George Thorogood?

Car cleaned inside and out. Bottles recycled. Groceries purchased and stowed away. All before 1pm! That's a record!

Welp ~

No Bacon on these premises just yet, so tasty Italian Sausage might have to fill in. We'll see as the morning goes on, and absolutely nuffin' happens. Lazy day thus far. I can hear Da Pooch upstairs, yelping in a dream. Even he ain't in no rush to get up.

Recommissioned the Sprinklers yesterday, since I'd drained the System during a cold snap ~1 week ago. Painted some metal Stair Railings. Mucked around with my lil Utility Trailer. Picked up some Dog Bombs. Dodged a hellacious Thunderstorm at the Dog Park. Rejoiced in not having washed my Truck, since Ma Nature did it for me, sans Quarters. The Hail that came down maxed out at around frozen Pea size. Not big enough to Remo the Truck, as I had happen many years ago to my SUV. Vehicle Cellulite. Really trashed it that time. People pulled off the Road in front of where I worked to drive up on the Lawn, and get under some huge, old Trees for protection. As that space filled up, it was quite the spectacle to watch Drivers jockey for under-Tree space.

So, let's ease into Sober Saturday with a germane question from 'The Fabulous Thunderbirds', and a vintage Pic of the Batmobile, as mentioned by lunar.

Woww...behan...come give me a hand with my list of chores. I have to a least vacuum the dog hair out of my car.
It's a rainy day here...that's OK but I'm not ssure how it will effect my volunteer work activities which are mainly outside. I will pick up my 7 year old charge and wing it. May end up in a museum.
Ok...I better get a dog walk in before it rains.
Have a happy, sober, hangover free day!!

Happy Sober Day! Loving that this Saturday morning, the whole house is still peacefully sleeping....I'm the first one up, and without a hangover and an imaginary hammer bashing my skull. Wow, did I hate those mornings. Thank you SR for your inspiration.

I'm hoping to make that pile of mulch disappear today. It's forcing me to 'clean up' spaces. Made brekky for the pair. Dressed in my working man's pants. Mrs took her place under the covers.
I found this - inspired by Mr MM - as I was looking for the brothers playing.

I realized I have a collection of every one of the artists playing in this clip, with the exception of Jimmie Vaughan. Just one T-birds disc and "Family Style". I've always been a fan/student of the blues.
Have a great Saturday all.

Jimmie Vaughan, BB King & Clapton pay tribute to SRV...

I would say so. That would be 14 hours going strong - a dance marathon Tetra?

I missed the Lonesome George post. I got to thinking, I saw BB King in Orlando in 1983 at a club. I had a chance to see SRV for FREE at Pier 39 in SF but missed it for something stupid that involved a lot of drinking. I was standing in the front of the stage for George Thorogood at the Concord Pavilion in 84 and later BB King and George together at the Pacific Amp. Wow, also saw T Petty at Pac Amp.

I remember some of it.

Now, going to concerts is an entirely different experience. I actually listen to the music.

Good morning everyone! Good to see what everyone's doing. Gymnastics class shortly then sorting, I think. Raining off and on here so no yard work.

Saoutchik, I love the canal pics and Mec, that village looks lovely. As Verte said, a good place for walks.

Time to roll.
