Bdot was awake last weekend at BBB’s in Bethany. She met up with a bunch of friends (etc.) for the annual cookie exchange. It is painful having a freezer FULL of cookies and not being able to eat their delicious, sweet awesomeness. Mmmmm….

While she was way I enjoyed some Heritage fish and chips. I’ve determined I don’t need the Cristal of fish (Halibut) when Haddock is cheaper and you get a bigger portion. Next time for sure! I spent the weekend at Barb’s SiL’s cottage with her BiL for a “Boy’s Weekend”. It was fun but we (Bill and Pete) did work for hours outside which I wasn’t expecting, so I didn’t have proper attire. We chopped, stacked and burned tons of wood. Racked leaves, and cleaned up the entire area on one side of the cottage. It certainly looked a lot better once we were done. So of course, we burned stuff, lots of stuff. (See above)

In the evening we had a great steak dinner. Bill set up a stereo with a record player and brought up a collection of old vinyl. Wow… it has been decades since I spun some vinyl. It still has a warm, rich sound… Rush, Hip, Genesis, Metallica… Good times. Bill also set up his “keginator” downstairs, so we enjoyed his Coffee Porter, it is soooo good. It was a fun weekend with the Boys.

I treated myself to a new PS4 game for my birthday. I picked up Horizon Zero Dawn. What a score! It is a fantastic game. Open world, RPG, stealth, quests… beautiful graphics, crafting, cool UI,…So far I’m really enjoying it.
