Morning...

...surprise...opened the garage door after the sun came up and got a bit of a shock when I spotted The Creature From The Black Lagoon crawling up out of my cooler...guess I'm out of beer...

But well before that event it was another early start to a Saturday...no fire at 6 am today...cold and drizzly outside...but I did enjoy a triple espresso with coffee and a cigar...then a problem at work interrupted my solitary musings and I trudged up to my loft to fight the battle of work for a while.

By the time I emerged victorious over the computer demons it had stopped raining so I started a fire after all on this chilly, 48 degree early fall morning:

...and while I was enjoying that God's woodland creatures came scavenging...I tossed a few peanuts and bird seed their way, but eventually Mr. Squirrel got into the good stuff:
...oh yeah...fresh grapes...that's the stuff...

I am not ready for it to be Autumn already but no one consulted me so here we are...had to abandon my summer uniform of  t-shirt, shorts and sandals in favor of the warmer jeans and sneakers...not happy about that.

Last night #4 son stopped by with his 10 month old son...hadn't seen Sean (grandson) since he was born, so that was nice.

Kid's a ringer for his dad, so that will probably work in his favor if he decides to play sports somewhere along the way...his dad was enormously strong back when he was competing in football and track...once saw him complete a competition squat with 650 pounds on the olympic bar when he weighed a mere 205.  Here's a pic of Chris back when he was competing in the decathlon:
He was a beast...still is physically formidable but no longer lifts seriously like he used to.  Yep, that's (one of) my boy(s)...

Today will be a mixed bag of monitoring systems at work and fun time...might get some bowling in, visit a couple of antique stores, watch some college football, get on the bike and Total Gym...oh yeah, and enjoy another cigar and some whiskey...

Later, mcm fans...
