This morning I got confirmation that Hotel ITP for wintering critters is once again open. Last night I thought I heard noises when I got home from work so I went out with the chainsaw and started cutting back the branches which could be used at a roadway for rats and squirrels. Today I found out that I am too late. Anyone want to guess what will occupy most of my weekend? Sometimes I wonder about being a homeowner.
Return To Hashing
After doing my best lumberjack impersonation, at least as much as the dark would permit, I knew that I was in no mood to run. However, as luck would have it there was a Full Moon hash last night and not only did I know the start, I knew the end. I was more than a little surprised at the amount of pavement we traversed, but at least I did get a fairly-decent, I’ll say 3.5-mile run in.
Unlike previous nights I was so tired that I immediately went to sleep when I got home from the hash.

I was goofing around with some lighting the other night.
I’ve had this bottle of Coke since the weekend of the Big Pig Jig. I couldn’t bring myself to drink it until I photographed it.
The DOT Wants My Opinion
This morning as I pulled through the toll booth on GA400 I was handed a survey (two actually) to fill out. The cynic in me says that this is the DOT’s way of raising the toll. I can hear them now… “Well, our survey clearly indicated that drivers want better roads, therefore we’ll have to raise the toll to $0.75 in order to satisfy their desires.”
We’ll have to see what this brings.
Gone But Not Forgotten
Yesterday I heard of two deaths, completely unrelated, but both part of my life.
Eighty year-old Dr Robert Cade passed away yesterday. While you may not recognize his name, you will most certainly recognize the name of his invention. In 1965 while working at the University of Florida Cade invented Gatorade.
Fifty-two year-old Kevin DuBrow was found dead in his house Las Vegas on Sunday. While you may not recognize his name, you will most certainly recognize the name of the band he led (at least if you are an old man like me). DuBrow was the lead singer for Quiet Riot, who in the mid-1980’s were all over the radio with their version of the song “Cum On Feel The Noize.”
No George’s For Me Tonight
Sad but true. Even if I do get out of work early enough to run, I’ll have to go home and continue working on the plan to eradicate my new residents.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – angry, frustrated
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing Wolf Runner — “You’re A Runner” (why yes I am!)
Website Of The Day – You’ve heard of YouTube so naturally someone would create FoodTube — a website for food preparation videos.
Exercise (b)Log – running/walking, 3.5 miles
Monthly Foot Mileage – 43.5 miles
Monthly Wheel Mileage – 0 miles
Mode Of Transportation To Work – My car
1) Run no fewer than 25 miles
2) Not worry about running the Atlanta Half-Marathon
3) Read at least one book
