Vacation Post # 3 – People of the Beach

The beach offers an amazing time of people watching.  Sometimes they do amazing things.  Sometimes they just are fun to watch and sometimes they make for a great picture.

So many memories of excellent vacations.  And all of these people are part of my memories of a wonderful time at the Jersey Shore 2016.  Thank you all!

Vacation – Post #2 – On The Beach

I love the beach.  I love to take pictures.  Here are some of the pictures I took of the Beach.







It’s always nice to see the kinds swimming and jumping the waves.  Reminds me of my childhood.



Who doesn’t love seagulls?


The calm before the storm…Hermine hasn’t hit yet so the water perfect.


There was a plane celebration at the Cape May Airport so we got to see lots of vintage planes flying on the beach line.  This WWII Bomber was an amazing sight.


Flags were a big sight this year.  Many folks flew their college favors flags.


I can’t wait until I post The People of the Beach.  So many fun folks this year!

Vacation Diary – Post #1 – Alpaca Love!

We head to the Jersey Shore every year on vacation to soak up the Sun and Surf.  Our Realtors are Jerry and Norm never disappoint when finding us the right location for our adventures.  They are awesomeness times a quadrillion!!!  Love these guys!








Each year we also like to incorporate one thing we have never done before into the mix of sightseeing and vacation adventures.  This year…I give you the Alpaca!


This is Oliver!


I can’t remember all of their names but I remember Oliver because he knows his name and loves to take selfies and other photos!  Oh and he’s way cuter than the Kardashians!




Kiss me you fool!!


Actually she just wanted some carrots.  The high point of my visit was me asking Lightning if he would say Welcome To New Jersey (he was honking and being verbal).  His response was to spit on me, HA HA HA!  Yup, that’s seems like a fair Jersey welcome, lol!  If you get a chance to visit the South Jersey Area stop by Jersey Shore Alpacas!

Hey I Went Outside Today!

It has been so hot this summer and I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had any time for outside time.  Today I made sure even though we are in a heat advisory I went outside…even if it were only for 15 minutes.

I went to the Arboretum where I am a member.  I highly recommend this if you can do it.  I was able to spend the most awesome 15 minutes ever.

The thing I loved the most today was the discover of the Milkweeds with their pods growing big and healthy!

I can’t wait for Autumn when the burst open and send their wishes flying!

It was a really good 15 minutes.  I miss nature…I need to make more time for it😉

French Onion Soup Project – Volume #6

We went to a local place over the weekend for some tasty treats.  MaGerk’s is a pub like atmosphere with Draft beers but also offers a Seafood Steampot.  I highly recommend the Cheese Steak Nachos!

French Onion Soup was on the menu so of course I must take the challenge and get it.  It was very good.

It wasn’t too salty and the cheese was perfect.  I’m not a fan of Sharp Provolone cheese on my FOS and was very happy this fair didn’t have any of that.  The cheese was perfectly melted and the bread in the broth was just the right amount.  There is nothing worse than breaking through the cheese to find one wet piece of bread and no broth.  Kudos Chef at MaGerk’s.  You’ve done a fine job!

On the FOSP meter I give it a solid 4+’s

A New Level of Selfies

So I take lots of selfies.  I’m a little narcissistic.  It’s just sad, lol.
IMG_4994 (225x400)

Luckily for me Snap Chat is an just for losers, um, people like me🙂

IMG_4995 (225x400)

I can be cute or very scary…thankfully they haven’t made a clown face cause that is the scariest of all things!

IMG_4996 (225x400)

My favorite one so far is the alien face.  So cute and the little voice is so fun.

This kind of spices up my usual selfies.  Perhaps if I had more friends I wouldn’t take so many selfies?  Nah, I got dogs and they are the most awesome of friends🙂

Anna Marie Duke (Patty Duke) Died Today

When I was a kid I loved to watch The Patty Duke Show re-runs on TV.  The theme song was so much fun.  Patty and Cathy kept me entertained.

Today Patty Duke died.  She had a troubled life but fought her way back.  I read her Autobiography years ago and was shocked by all she went through.

RIP Anna Marie Duke.


Meet Cathy, who’s lived most everywhere,
From Zanzibar to Barclay Square.
But Patty’s only seen the sight.
A girl can see from Brooklyn Heights —
What a crazy pair!

But they’re cousins,
Identical cousins all the way.
One pair of matching bookends,
Different as night and day.

Where Cathy adores a minuet,
The Ballet Russes, and crepe suzette,
Our Patty loves to rock and roll,
A hot dog makes her lose control —
What a wild duet!

Still, they’re cousins,
Identical cousins and you’ll find,
They laugh alike, they walk alike,
At times they even talk alike —

You can lose your mind,
When cousins are two of a kind.

Food Shopping 101

I recently discover that most people don’t do things like I do things.  Example…food shopping.  I cut my coupons, got my cart and recycled bags and headed out with my list of what we needed for the week.  So far normal, right?

IMG_1705 (300x400)

I took Pepe King Prawn with me because I’ve always got some kind of action figure in my pocket.  My wife recently got Pepe for me because well he’s the most awesome Muppet (sorry Kermit) and she’s cool like that.

IMG_1706 (300x400)

These are just a few pictures I texted to my wife while doing the food shopping….

IMG_1707 (300x400)

Yes I’m a sick bastard!

IMG_1708 (300x400)

I like to have fun!

IMG_1709 (300x400)

Sean Penn…get it…Champagne, lol.  Oh Pepe, you slay me!

The shopping trip only took 2 hours and everyone was looking at me like I had a mental problem.  They were just jealous that I do not hide my freak flag.  I wave that baby back and forth with pride!
