Few different things, I've started to become more active in the community either through volunteer work or talking with neighbors and seeing if they need help with anything. Diving head first back into cooking and I'm in love all over again. Currently doing a couch to 5k as well as body weight exercises, with the quarantine I've become a soft body.

Debating on also getting a guitar, I've wanted to try and learn the flamenco style of guitar for a long time now but I've never pulled the trigger on one yet.

My work schedule goes into overdrive after July 4th and remains at full speed until Thanksgiving.

I rented a lake cabin for 3 nights next week in a remote part of MN.

No kids, no girlfriend, no pets. Just me, bourbon, and cigars. Cabin has a screen porch so no worries about rain or bugs.

Can. Not. Wait.

Jealous.... wish I could escape people for a few days, or a week or a month.... I'm going into burn out mode with work and the situation in the world.

I think your old man can still take you. 🤣

He definitely can.

Tallish Child has her 16th birthday coming up, so we’re gonna escape for a couple of days. Toes in sand, appropriate beverages in hand, and just unplug for a minute

It’s a good time, I’m spoiled by being able to go to a certain beach every week. It keeps me sane.

I think I tell myself every other month that I should start guitar, talk myself out of it, then come full circle thinking about it again.

I definitely see the resemblance!

He’s a handsome guy, which is good, because that’s my future.

With all the political stuff and debate I thought it might be fitting for us to have a more fun thread, what are y’all doing to during the summer?

Here’s me an @DevilDocJP beachin it up.

What beach??

Fuck, I am #jeals. I don't know when I will ever get to the beach again. Like @Ooh-Rah , my job is taking off and going vertical: I am getting exponentially busier by the day.

Last summer we bought a pool, a modest-size above ground pool, but big enough and deep enough all the kids can have a good time, stay cool, and burn energy.

North MB. We had younger cousins over this past weekend, 10 and 2, I was smoked after hanging out with those animals.

We're already here.... stay out of my state if you got any kind of germs.
I've got plenty of germs but I keep those to myself. Now, I'm trying to escape the ones in MN that seem to make a people extra stupid.

The day is coming when I go out there and stay for good. I've been saying it for years but getting more serious about it.

I refer to my 16 year old daughter as “largish Child,” because when she was younger she towered over the other children, especially the boys. She was so big, comparatively, that she played full contact football when she was 13.

But then she stopped growing and thinned out and picked up swimming (since I wouldn’t let her continue in football after we moved to Hawaii) but “Slightly Taller Than Average” girl is a mouthful, so...

We have a Tallish Child as well. Our 12 year old daughter is now the second tallest person in our family (I’m 6’5”), a source of much consternation for her older sister. :)

Get one. I recommend a cheap steel string electric acoustic with a built in tuner. They are in most music stores and all over eBay.

It’s hard to get good at guitar, but it’s easy to get “good enough.”
