I vividly remember watching this game with my brother and dad. In the room was the signed-ball from Reggie my brother got me that summer, one of the 3 he worked as a bat boy in the visitors dugout at Met Stadium. And listening to Cosell is always a treat.

Hummingbird finally back at our feeders! Pretty late this year. We've had Oriels hitting the feeders but this is the first hummingbird we've seen this year.

FINALLY being able to have a beer on the patio of the local brewery with friends I haven't seen in 3 months. Perfect day for it, too.

Yesterday was my 30th anniversary at Mother Mining.
Seems like just yesterday I was the young punk reminding the old dude celebrating a 'worked here a long dang time long time' milestone that I was not even 30 years old yet. :lol:

Have you considered a lake home retirement? Possibly being a caretaker on a Chisago Lakes area estate to ease the financial burden? 😘

We are definitely moving toward that goal.....but I don't foresee us building until one or both of us retire so we can be a full time PIA to our contractor. ;)
I can see celebrating 35 but not 40.

Congrats! But I hope they don’t treat you like a relative of mine that worked there for over 30 years and was let go a year before retirement so they didn’t have to pay his pension.

Labor Day this year will be my 19th Anniv. Maybe more astounding, is I've only had 2 full time jobs since I was 19. :shock:

It’s rare these days to work one job start to finish of a career. My dad worked one job since right out of college and they had the “rule of ninety” at his place of employment (after a couple iterations it became part of XCEL energy).... Age + years worked = 90 and you can retire with full benefits. So he was able to retire in his 50s. Thankfully he was one of the original employees at his location so even as the times changed he was one of the few who knew the place inside and out which meant some job security.

I know that’s rare. As mentioned above a relative worked until a year from retirement at one place and was then screwed over so has needed to continue to work part time since then (20 years later). Sometimes it’s luck.

I’m at my 5th job since graduation (granted I had three concurrently) and fingers crossed I’ll be at my current job until I retire. Which if I’m lucky will be when I’m 70. 👵🏻

I've had side jobs (early on in life, it was necessary) and later on, it was for fun/extra money, even looking into one now, mainly because it'd be fun. I do agree that loyalty is pretty much out the window when it comes to a main corporate job and that goes for both workers and companies. Workers have basically become mercenaries now: pay me more/give more benefits, I'll leave my current job, period.

My attitude is, if my company is giving me what I need (plus a little for fun), and I'm treated right, I'll stay. I might make a few bucks or more at someplace else, or in a higher position, but if I am truly happy doing what I'm doing? I'll stick with what I am doing at the current time. :wink:

I was at Carlson Marketing for 8 years when our division (hospitality/travel) was slashed almost entirely following 9/11 so a total of 24 years between two companies. No idea how long I might have otherwise stayed had that not happened. But I met my wife in Bahrain because of my time there so it wasn't all bad. :mrgreen:

Been at Home Depot for 20 years coming up in January. My first job out of college. I still remember opening the Bemidji store and I was the only one in the Hardware dept with good handwriting so I had to make all the wingstack signs and we had a family night the night before grand opening and I walked around with my Dad showing him the signs. Completely deadpan he said, “good thing I paid for college so you could make signs for Home Depot..”

Anyway, I am hoping Home Depot is my only “adult” job I ever have.

You and I must have started our jobs around the same time, because I'll also hit the 19 year mark this September. Rather than seeing it as an accomplishment, I sometimes get a little depressed that I'm still here. I wish I would have pushed myself to move on around the 10 year mark, but my kids were very young at the time, and we were just getting out of the '08/'09 great recession, so I clung to the job security. I was laid off from my first two jobs out of college (twice in 3 years), so I think that experience made me very risk averse.

It’s crazy what kids will do to you. The recession hits and suddenly that severance (for those fortunate to have one) is a nice thing to have on the back pocket. Moving up the ladder is nice but so is job security and safety blankets. Willing to relocate? Hmm that housing market in MN isn’t so bad.

I thought about relocating to CO a few years ago, working at my main building was taking a toll on my health. When I was appointed my current position, it was a perfect fit, and those plans were discarded.

Job security is something that I'll take a bit of a paycut on, as long as I'm still getting what I what, and am happy with (job AND money).

My family and my SIL family are renting a cabin and a boat for the week. Lots of fishing and tubing to be had. I am the only one who has had experience growing up with fishing and boating so I have been the professor. I don’t get many breaks. But the kids are finally at an age where they like to fish and are patient. My older kid, who has the most experience of the kids, is actually helping his cousins with fishing tips. It’s great to watch them. My girly niece was asking to put the leaches and worms on the hooks herself. She even wanted to learn how to fillet one of the fish!

The only down side, after a looong day outdoors, was filleting fish after everyone went to bed.

I'm at the point in my career and life where I shop managers/supervisors as much as I shop jobs. I really like my current job and my immediate manager and up are fantastic leaders. I kind of stumbled into this area of triple M when my position was eliminated in 2009 and have never felt more at home.

Simple pleasure - My wife and I took delivery of a new pontoon on Saturday! We have been discussing, window shopping, and saving for this since our daughter (our youngest) graduated from college a few years ago. Between the recent upgrades we made to our dock and now the pontoon it's getting harder and harder to get a sliver there. :lol: :shock: :good2:

One of the best things about the building trades is that IF you were in a bad situation, so far as supervision, the job, be it site or even employer if so desired, would not be a forever situation. You really didn't have an onus if you just could pull your weight physically and practice your craft. I spent 40 years at it and was just a "line grunt" to general supt. in that time. Probably the most entertaining years were the last couple where I was used by younger foremen / supts as a resource of knowledge and experience. Thus I had little to no forced interaction with people out side a crew, unless I was willing.

Pontoons are THE boat most used at cabins. We love ours. My fishing boat was a tournament type rig and when I stopped fishing tournys I neglected that rig. It is so comfortable on the pontoon to be pulling crankbaits, teaching people how to use sonar and structure, while sipping an adult beverage. Being a tritoon it will touch 25 mph with a gas sipping 90 hp 4 stroke Merc.
@ Greyeagle. Do you have electronics on yours? I have always been Lowrance guy. Now it sounds like the Hummingbird Helix line is very very good. Text if you want more info.
BTW . Yesterday the kid cranked in a solid 26" fatty. The one picture doesn't do it justice.

@Bladepuller Our Godfrey came with a Lowrance but I don't fish (GE ducks!) so other than for depth I don't use it for much. Green (Chisago) has a lot of shallow & weedy areas so it's nice to know what we are getting into. We wanted it for cruising around around the lake and swimming, the lake is big enough that we be out for a long time without circling the same spot over and over. I don't need it for pulling skiers or tubers, we have an 18 foot Lund ski/fish (Grand Tyee Sport w/130 Yamaha) that works great for those activities, so we opted for a smaller 50hp Yamaha. Our '82 national with plastic chairs, plywood floors, and homemade benches was just not fun to be on for an extended period. The 30HP Johnson - same vintage - Sea Horse on the old 'toon is a champ but it clatters and spews a lot of exhaust so it's nice to have fresh air and quiet. :)

Please, I had a mini-disc (remember those?!) CD-writer/maker, phonograph, dual cassettes, 300-disc AND 400-disc CD carousel (with LCD remotes, you could label every CD/song, which I did), top notch receiver, and 1000W speakers. I was golden. Then the internet came along, and Sony did their BS with the mini-disc patent. Le sigh.

There is an elderly gentleman who sits in front of us at Mariucci. We’ve sat by him for many years. He brings a bright yellow Walkman CD Radio and listens to the game as he watches. 2 years ago some HS hockey players were sitting near us, we laughed as I heard an ongoing discussion over “what is that thing”?

Between the Walkman AND the binoculars he also brings (he watches the bench) he’s quite the spectator.

I finally got a haircut/color yesterday after more then 3 months. Yippie :dup:

I have a lot of hair and I wear it very short. It was getting so bad I bought barrettes and threatened to wear a turban! When I finally sat down in the chair my longtime stylist said he needed to pray for strength before he started cutting. :lol:

Saw a hummingbird tonight. I haven't seen one in years. Dunno why it was even around. No feeders or anything. Very cool. Reminded me of my gramma's out in the country, where there were a ton of them (and yes, she had a feeder).

Back on the ice today...yesterday now, for the first time since March 5th coaching youth hockey players. While I have had a long-time rule of not playing hockey in June/July, we gave in to this weekend"s YHH "The Big One" due to some delays in baseball and I was asked to coach. While I coach our baseball team, it was nice to be back on the ice!

Found a guy on Twitter who makes 3D wall art. I messaged him a few times, and he seemed legit, so I told him I was interested in one. Sent him the money, fully prepared to lose the money in case it was some sort of shady operation (after all, it is just a random person on Twitter who I was Venmoing money to...)

But, it definitely appears legit!

He sent me a progress pic, of the base board for my Gopher M!



Here's some of his other (completed) work:

Cherries! 5 yrs ago we planted a sour/pie cherry tree that was offered by our neighborhood association for $10. We signed up thinking $10 would get us a stick but it turned out to be a 5 ft healthy root ball tree! The first year we got 3 cherries :lol: The next year maybe 30. Last year I was very excited at the uptick in cherry production. We got enough for my grandmothers almond cake with sour cherries, but the birds beat me to most of the remaining. THIS year? OMG!
I’ve picked and picked. Cherry pie. Cherry Frangipane Tart. Cherry Clafoutis. And I’m making Sour Cherry Vodka with the stragglers. It’s been a bounty. Pitting them is a pain in the ass, but boy I love sour cherries.

We picked a big bucket of montmorrency cherries in Door County a few years ago. It’s shocking how many cherries a tree can produce. I pitted enough cherries for a couple of pies and, I agree, it’s a pain in the ass. And to be honest, picking the cherries wasn’t fun either. Baking in the sun with sticky hands was no bueno.

The rest of the cherries went to making cherry bounce which thankfully requires no putting. And it is delicious.

Honestly I don't really have one but the basics. For spices add and taste as you go:

-Long grain white rice - about 1.5 cups
-diced onion
-seeded and diced red & green bell peppers
-4 garlic cloves minced
-salt
-black pepper
-thyme and oregano
-bay leaves (optional)
-cajun seasoning
-crushed tomatoes
-paprika
-Worcestershire sauce
-3 cups of chicken broth - I prefer low sodium
-hot sauce of your choice it's hard to go wrong. Even sri racha works if you don't have something more traditional on hand
-okra (this is optional imho)

-Your choice of chicken, sausage (preferable andouille but chorizo would work) and/or shrimp. If using shrimp I pan fry lightly in olive oil, paprika and garlic and I only add to order to keep it from getting soggy if you have leftovers
-cook the rice in the chicken broth, then start adding spices. I recommend using less than the 3 cups of broth, but if you have more keep some handy as extra. I don't like a "dried out" jambalaya and will add to keep it just barely 'saucy'

-I like to top it off when serving with green onion and cilantro but it's not required

It does and okra can also get slimy, epically in something like Gumbo, that may be leftover. If I do use it I tend to use no more than a quarter of the amount in a recipe. I omit it before using frozen, did that one time with Gumbo and it was nasty.

Finished product for the wall art I bought from the guy on Twitter:



Honestly could not be more satisfied with how it looks. The guy has a real talent, obviously! Next step will be to have it shipped with no issues... Haha. Can't wait to get it on my wall! :dup: :dup:

He takes orders through Twitter DMs, but if you don't have Twitter and are interested in something, shoot me a PM, I have his email address.

Finished product for the wall art I bought from the guy on Twitter:



Honestly could not be more satisfied with how it looks. The guy has a real talent, obviously! Next step will be to have it shipped with no issues... Haha. Can't wait to get it on my wall! :dup: :dup:

He takes orders through Twitter DMs, but if you don't have Twitter and are interested in something, shoot me a PM, I have his email address.
Looks nice! Get your orders in now as I’m sure one of these colleges will get him for trademark violation :shock:

Yep, just send him a DM, and then he'll give you the pricing, and his Venmo.
