Just Livin

         Started this week off at another ballgame. Different company this time and not out of my pocket which suits me fine. Work had a team building get together so about twenty of us headed to the O's game Monday night. Boss bought us all appetizers and drinks before the game and my my partner in crime Benjamin and I took full advantage. It was a great night with good folks.

Dos Amigo's

Some of us might of drank a little to much but who's counting. Spent the rest of the week trying to get things caught up at work and home. I have an upcoming vacation and it been way to long since my last. Want to have my ducks in a row before I leave. I hate when people go on vacation and leave loose ends so I don't like to leave my guy's like that if I can help it.
        Had to tame my feral garden, it's been producing well but I have neglected it this year.
Bell Flower planted it for my Korean mama Ms Jean 

Notice the cantaloupe growing up the house

Second of my 2 cantaloupes first that I have been successful with here
Don,t know what flower this is my neighbor has one in her yard and now I do, pretty though.

Earlier in the week I tweaked my ankle so besides a evening paddle I been pretty much chilling out this week end. I managed to get my hunting gear together get some pictures off my fishing camera that has not been working right. Sometimes living the dream is slowing down propping up a bum foot, sipping a cold one and reading a book or two. Here are some random fishing pics and some from my evening paddle. Also an awesome water spout shot near my house.

Anniversary Ballgame and GSD!

Its been a busy and awesome weekend and I didn't even go fishing. Gave my honey an early anniversary gift and took her to watch her favorite baseball team.It was her favorite player bobble head give away and I  know she gets excited by little things like that so I scored a couple of tickets and surprised her. She also got her a 2017 Orioles calendar that benefits BARC's animal rescue, so she was one happy girl. Can't believe we have been together for 13 years and will be married 10 on the 25th of  August. Still never thought a women would put up with my ass that long.
Our first date and now. She still pretty and I'm still big and bald. Love this woman!
Don't see whats so special about this dude not nearly as good looking as the one above

wife spotted this on the street.

Not my kinda bike but love the paint

Game wasn't until the evening so I decided to get the old truck running. The last time I drove it the tranny wasn't shifting right. I made it home but the starter went up and I got pissed and bought another car refusing at the time to put another dollar into it. I found a starter dirt cheap on rock auto so I snagged it against my better judgement. I installed it added some fluid and repaired some wires and she fired right up and drove like a champ. I'm still not gonna keep her though. So I cleaned her up took pictures and posted to craigslist. I need a fullsize truck and this one been nothing but a head ache since I bought it from my little cousin, guess that's what I get for being nice. I did make my day to breath life into that which I thought was dead.
Buy Now limited time they are going quick

Yup that was me

No reason for this one just tickled me

Today woke up cooked a big ass breakfast shampooed the carpets to get the dog smell out then went and knocked out a side job. Came home grilled some dinner and baked cookies from scratch. Hmm maybe there is a reason she keeps me around.

Though I hate going to the city when I'm off of work I enjoy going to a ball game. Its relaxing to watch a game and have a beer or three (as long as you don't think about how much they cost). And Camden Yards is a pretty nice park to do it in. The O's got their asses whooped but Chris Davis hit a homer and made the wife's day.

Of Jumbo Crabs and Sailfish

Spent the weekend away from tv and the web, caught up after work today and it looks like I should of stayed away longer. Anyhow it was a great weekend, went kayak crabbing on Stoney Creek Saturday. Got up before sun up with plans to be done by noon with the heat index being 110 plus. Crabbing was slow and being on the water taking a dip every now and then seemed the best place to be. We crabbed until 5 netting 3/4 of a bushel and ill say they made up in size for what they lacked in numbers.
9" stoney creek monster
That's probably the second biggest blue crab I have caught in my life and just about every other measured 7+ with a few 8 incher's. 

our crabs have attitude
I think we interrupted this guys party. I like how he rolls. Got back online this evening and checked the White Marlin Open results. Had a couple of friends in the tournament and was hoping they would place well. For those that don't know its the largest billfish tournament in the world and is held in Ocean City Md. I used to watch them weight the fish in when I was young with my pop and dream of being in it one day. I have had a few invites but never the money to play. The record payout this year was 4.3 million in prize money. The winning white marlin netted 2.8 million. My friends didn't place in the money. 

WMO sailfish
 They did land some nice dolphin and a rare sailfish for this far north. This tournament is definitely on my bucket list. I can dream:)
I was told I have one of these shirts coming can't wait, apparently they have caused quite and uproar. Don't know why catch an release marlin fishing is the way to go.
