I have to introduce the newest member of the family. I’m a big fan of the electronic game Hay Day. One of the first animals you get in the game is a chicken. I named my first one Cluck Norris. Check out what Mike got me for Valentine’s Day. It’s actually from the makers of the Hay Day game:
I have my own Cluck Norris! Tee hee!
This weekend, I met up with my Army buddy Ken again. We had a great visit with him last weekend as well, over to the Casino to enjoy the buffet and see Jersey Nights. Mike did a family thing that day so couldn’t join us. Ken took the bus down from Hamilton and I met him at the bus stop in St. Catharines. We arrived at the Casino for around 11:30. I watched Ken at the slots for a bit and then I played a $20 I brought (big spender!) I won $71 after a few pulls, which was kinda nice. Then we went and picked up tickets for the Wayne Brady show at 3:00. Then it was a later lunch at the awesome buffet!
The show was SO good and funny! I can’t believe how quickly Wayne comes up with things. The whole show was improv with audience participation. I wouldn’t hesitate at all to go back and see him again.
I played with the kids a bit when I got home. As you can see, they were thrilled to see me:
On Sunday, I was surprised I was feeling as good as I did after the long day Saturday. Mike and I hopped in Vyctor and headed to Kitchener for some breakfast. Here’s the Burlington Skyway, looking all bridgey:
We ordered our breakfast and I excused myself to go to the little pilot’s room. I came back to see that Mike wasn’t too nice to Donkay:
We were almost done our meal, I saw something I had never seen before (beyond online), another Cessna 150 Aerobat! I could tell it was an Aerobat right away because of the checkered pattern. They parked it right next to Vyctor too! Vyctor was so excited to see his brother!
One of the flight instructors came out and had a little chat with me. They don’t have anyone there to teach them aerobatics so the plane is just used for regular ol’ straight and level training. So sad!
Nice flight home. We had a tail wind so the trip was a little quicker. We went up and visited the nice folks at the Niagara District Airport Tower once we got back. Then home to see the goobers and chill. I see that Mya and Pinky were already chilling:
They don’t look too happy – I think they missed us. A little different than Mya’s expression that morning:
Kinda looking a tad stunned there.
Had a good day at work today. Since most people get Family Day off and us Federal workers don’t, quite a few more people answered the phone than do on a normal work day. Some asked why we were working today and I said that we are just so committed to our jobs that none of us have families. Therefore, no need to partake in Family Day!
Today’s symptoms: I felt pretty good until starting around 2:00, then my energy dropped pretty quickly. At least things weren’t too bad pain-wise. My insomnia is still slowly improving. Where I went through five months with about four out of five nights being bad (one – four hours sleep), now it’s about two out of five. Plus my bad nights aren’t quite as bad.
