We woke up. We took the dog outside. We fed the dog.
We took the dog outside. We got the newspapers.
We drank a cup of espresso. DRINK COFFEE. Drink Water.

12:55pm: Hey, it’s Thursday. Yes, we are here.

We woke up too early. We took the dog outside. We fed the dog.
We took the dog outside. We went back to bed.
The housekeeper came and worked a half day… kinda.
We got the newspapers and the mail. We took the dog outside again.
We’ve been chillin’ in the Home Office all day.

1:45pm: Really taking the day off today…..

JoshWillTravel: ZZZZZZZZZZZ

8:30pm: We just woke up from a nap with the dog. We took the dog outside.
We went to the bank and the post office and the gas station today.
We went to the market, and parked, but there were TOO MANY PEOPLE inside.
We looked at all the cars in the parking lot, and then just drove home again.
The dog went outside earlier. And we fed the dog. And he went outside.
And then we fell asleep for an hour or so.
We haven’t eaten…. kinda. We ate two fried chicken drumsticks at 5:00pm.
VERY HUNGRY NOW.

On The Menu: Chicken quesadilla with avocado and salsa

wrote this haiku six years ago…
Makes you want to shout
out at the top of your lungs
“King of the World Ma!”

And JoshWillTravel will not be traveling next week.
WE CANCELLED OUR LAS VEGAS RESERVATIONS THIS MORNING.
We had booked Three COMP nights at The Mirage Hotel & Casino (MGM MLife)
with a $50 food credit and $20 FREE play for the week after Labor Day.
We booked it once we were Fully Vaccinated, before the Delta Variant Surge,
and we were really looking forward to going…. fucking CoronaVirus.
We called and waited ON HOLD (w/really bad muzak) for an Reservation Specialist
and we tried to reschedule for October or November,
but because the “offer had expired” we just cancelled it. Just a BIG BUMMER.
We will rebook when (or if) it is safe to travel and be in public spaces again.
This was supposed to be our first vacation trip in 18 months, but there are
TOO MANY UNMASKED AND UNVACCINATED PEOPLE OUT THERE RIGHT NOW.
And we still thought about going, not cancelling, but it just doesn’t feel safe to go.
We are not the only one….. there were thousands of cancellations in the last week.

Mirage_las_vegas

The Mirage Hotel and Volcano – Las Vegas, Nevada

And it’s also why we didn’t make travel plans for “Not Burning Man 2021” this week.
But a lot of people went – there are thousands of campers in the Black Rock Desert!
We have been watching the LiveStream from The Playa and it look really wild and fun….
But there’s still a CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC and it is not socially responsible to go.
Also, there is NO INFRASTRUCTURE (port-a-potties, medical services, etc.)
and it just isn’t safe to be “socializing” with (masked or unmasked) strangers.

WE TOOK AN AFTERNOON TRIP IN OUR AUTOMOBILE.
We got dressed and went out of the house.
We visited a friend (in-person) in his backyard.
It was HOT but beautiful and rewarding…. good deed of the day.
Always good to help a friend out.
And then we drove home, and there was a lot of traffic,
so we got back to the Home Office and took the dogs outside.
The dogs got fed. And we declined another party invitation.
NO! WE ARE NOT EATING AND DRINKING WITH STRANGERS!
WE ARE NOT EATING AND DRINKING WITH FAMILY AT THIS POINT!
SO FUCKING STUPID TO HAVE PARTIES OR ANY KIND OF GATHERING!
THE DELTA VARIANT IS REAL and it might kill you, even vaccinated people.

shana-tova

Happy New Year 5782!

11:00pm: Happy Friday! Good Shabbos! Friday Night Fun?
We didn’t eat all day. And we are maybe hungry. If we eat, we will tear it up.
And we will eat eventually before dawn. Probably soon.
We are chillin’ in the Home Office with the dog and thinking about food.

Los Angeles Dodgers v. San Francisco Giants
Tied at 2-2 in the bottom of the 11th Inning at 11:10pm PST…..
and now the bases are loaded with all the pressure on the pitcher.
Ball – Foul Ball – Steee-rike – Ball (blocked by the catcher): 2 and 2.
Infield hit and fielded by the Dodgers, Force Out at Home Plate.
2 Outs, bases loaded….. will the Dodgers choke now?
AND THE DODGERS CHOKE ON THE THROW TO FIRST BASE!!!!
Infield hit and fielded by the Dodgers,
but the throw to First Base was WIDE AND HIGH…..
Did he get his toe on the bag before the runner touched? NO!!!!
GIANTS WIN 3-2 HAHAHAHAHA! (on an error on the throw)
and ~90% of the fans in the stadium weren’t wearing masks….

11:20pm GAME OVER! We made an iced espresso.
Watching the YouTube Livestream from Not Burning Man 2021 again!

NOTE: Yes, we are STILL working on the Las Vegas and Ashland Road Trip Blog Posts.
Just taking a long time and we’ll be sharing them soon. July totally got away from us! And so did August…. and now it’s September 2019 and we haven’t updated our Blog in two months. Sincere apologies for our recent distraction! WE ARE BACK! Really. No, really.

Burning Man – Camp Envy 2014!

Vamos a la Playa? NOPE!
burned
We were looking for ONE TICKET and ONE VEHICLE PASS for BURNING MAN 2019 this year, and the Main Sale and the OMG sale sucked. And so we are not going. It was not meant to be. Too much work to get ready and not enough time.
We will be watching watched with CAMP ENVY again this year. (more later)

Burning Man – Camp Envy 2019

It was THE DOG DAYS OF SUMMER here in Los Angeles. HOT! HOT! HOT!
And it continues to be hot into September.
Today it was only 90 degrees in the San Fernando Valley.
At least we don’t have Hurricane Dorian to contend with!
The stories coming out of the Bahamas are terrible.

He is such a Happy Boy!

Another Birthday! And so another year flies by, and we get older.

And since we’re talking about food, we just had our annual Labor Day Barbecue Party!
With some killer Surf and Turf! Steak, lobster tail with melted butter, baked beans with bacon, corn on the cob, bread and butter, cornbread muffins, fruit salad, chips, tortilla chips and salsa, cheese and crackers, Mango nectar w/gin, cherry pie and vanilla ice cream

And more cake. Chocolate cake. There was cake and then half of it was frozen, and then there was cake again. And it was really good.

FlashbackFriday! 2 years since my iPhone was tragically destroyed! It was crushed between the door and the dashboard by Vanessa, my rental van.

NOTE: We bought a replacement phone for $50 and transferred the chip, and we have a replacement iPhone, but we haven’t gone back from our cheap android model yet.

Are you ready for some advertising? NFL Football is On the Air!

Why does the picture in the multi-screen layout keep getting smaller?

And so it begins! Starting this weekend and for the next 16 weekends (and Monday and Thursday nights) plus playoffs, championships and the Super Bowl, I will be watching NFL Football, drinking coffee and ignoring everything else. See you in February!

And on an interesting note, we can see the stats for this Blog, and we enjoy seeing where our readers are located (when they’re not pirating our pictures). So here’s the details for the last four days, WE ARE WORLDWIDE!>

Okay, we’re posting this at last. Watch for our future past due Blog Posts: Burning Man, Las Vegas, Ashland Road Trip, and more…. Thanks for playing!

Reflection of a Road Trip!

It’s the end of September 2018. Tempus fugit!

NFL Football Season! Happy Distraction!
Harder to enjoy since it was politicized.
Harder to enjoy because of systemic (and now overt) racism.
Harder to enjoy because of multiple rule changes.
But we’re still watching, at least for now.

The Los Angeles Dodgers BOYCOTT continues.
As long as the blackout continues, the BOYCOTT continues.
FU TimeWarner/Spectrum/SportsNet and the LA Dodgers Management!
FU DirecTV, Mayor Garcetti and the Los Angeles City Council!
I want to watch my local Major League Baseball team on television.
FU Major League Baseball! THE BOYCOTT CONTINUES!

We binge watched “Maniac” on NetFlix and without revealing any spoilers we just have to say, “WHAT THE FUCK?” That is all.

NOT GOING TO TALK POLITICS TODAY…. just can’t and don’t want to.
VISIT TELL THE USA TO DUMP TRUMP> www.facebook.com/usadumptrump

HE LIKES BEER! BRETT KAVANAUGH is UNFIT TO SERVE AS A JUDGE and THEY WANT TO STEAMROLL HIM ONTO THE SUPREME COURT! THE GOP REPUBLICANS ARE A DISGRACE TO DEMOCRACY! When you lie to Congress, you don’t get the job! How dare they challenge and ignore any sexual assault survivor! HAVE THEY NO SHAME! NO ETHICS? NO MORALS? THEY ALL NEED TO RESIGN! LYIN’ CHEATIN’ CROOKED EVIL GREEDY REPUBLICANS! WE BELIEVE HER!

Okay, NO POLITICS TODAY.

Found 3 shot glasses for $3. The Disneyland Mickey still has the $6 price tag on the bottom. The New York still has the WTC and the Hawaiian Girl just made me smile.
