First time at Oktoberfest and my first Glockenspiel.
Worked on the Second of the Day site on the road to Nashville. Laptop operation in a van is difficult.
Made it to Honky Tonk Central in Nashville! Amongst a large list of other bars and restaurants. Live music everywhere.
Dudes weekend in Nashville. Started the evening off with music and beers in the AirBnb. It's one of the nicest places I've ever stayed in.
Got home from Nashville just in time for Lola's favorite event of the year, the Lakewood dog swim at Foster Pool.
Took Lola for a walk today and you can tell she's still tired from the dog swim yesterday.
Ashley won a trip on Facebook from South West Airlines! All expenses paid vacation for her and 3 friends! We leave tomorrow morning for Laguna Beach and San Bernardino, California!
Made it to Laguna Beach! We checked out some beaches and went on a $14 wale watching charter tour where we saw hundreds of dolphins feeding on anchovies in the water. Definitely worth the money.
Got to meet Andrew McMahon and see him perform at High and Low fest today. He even gave us a ride on his golf cart around the festival grounds, so we got to be those people today. He was the nicest guy, very down to earth. I've never seen Ashley so star struck in my life! She was adorable. And I don't say that word very often.
Back home to Ohio, but not without getting In-N-Out burger first! Double-double Animal-style with a chocolate shake. Believe the hype!
Back home in Ohio, taking Lola on a long walk for leaving her (with our friends) all weekend.
Stopped by a train on the way to work.
Got my Vitamins and BCAA's from Amazon for cheaper than just buying one container of BCAAs from the local GNC.
Ashley told me about Olive Garden's "Pasta Pass", so I tried to get one and I got in the waiting room! Thats as far as I got though..
Mom and dad came out for dinner and took a walk around Lakewood Park. The Cleveland overlook is always a great place to take people.
Brad came out for my dad's birthday and deer season, we went hunting then celebrated my dad's birthday. This is his shiny new pellet grill firing up for the first time.
Ashley and I took the day and cleaned our cars. I woke up early and went to Home Depot to buy a shop vac. Adult purchases.
Walked out to leaves on my car this morning. Fall starts now in my books.
On a Ralston trip to Louisville, KY - we stop at a bar/pub for a bite to eat.
Home from the Ralston trip and watching an episode of West World. One of my favorite shows right now.
Sprokets got me a ticket to Brad Frost's talk about Design Patterns. Really fun but really mentally exhausting to think about.
Taking Lola for a walk to the lake!
I bought an iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil off a guy on craigslist - on the way home we passed Porcos. Decided to have a celebratory drink with Ashley and to start up the iPad for the first time but I needed to be on Wifi. Porcos wouldn't give out the password so we were stuck talking to each other face to face like it was 2002 or something. It was a good time!
Typical grocery shopping day.
Buying a rack and having it in my basement is a great way to eliminate excuses for not wanting to go to the gym. It's literally in your house. Great motivator.
Went to the bathroom at home and found myself locked in when I tried to leave. I was stuck in there for around an hour, took off the hinge pins and that didn't work - removed the doorknob to manually open the door, that didn't work -Ashley ended up getting me out with a spatula and a hammer from the outside.
Time lapse at the office.
In the market for a new phone and iTunes doesn't give me the nerd level of precision I need to pull stuff off of my iPhone in bulk, so I found iExplorer. Worked like a charm.
Chest and triceps day.
Going fishing with my parents today. Didn't get sunburnt, but also didn't catch many Walleye. Still a good day.
