Cindi's 20 year H.H.S. Reunion

I was originally only suppose to accompany Cindi to the Friday night function; well one night turned into two. LOL
i guess it was ok, i won't attend my high school reunions, but i had a great time at hers.
turns out i remembered quite a few people even though i had been out of school for 5 years.
i got reacquainted with familiar faces, and acquainted with some I've never known.
all and all, a splendid time!!
here's some pictures, although many many were taken, only a few i will post here.
Love Ya Cindi!!!

Cindi with good friend Mr. Sweeney.
Good to hang out with ya Matt, have a safe trip home.

my excitement for the evening, LOL
watching this little guy hammer on whatever he could get in his mouth!!
i had a front row seat!!! lol

Gheen, Mn. July 22nd-23rd

visited the "Mayor" for a couple days.
here's some of our fun!!

The "Mayor's" garden, coming along nicely!!!

 And the biking!!

And general goofiness, and lounging.

Uncle Larry is opening a bottle of Surly Smoke, a great tasting beer brewed only in November!!
I also have a bottle of Darkness (on the same link as above), that one scares me a little!!! lol

all in all, a good way to blow a couple summer days with family!!!

The Proper Way

This is how pipe should look as they sit on the rail system in my area. 
I would never die for my job, ever!! If something is unsafe, you will not see me doing it!!!

Near Miss???!!! Maybe A-Little....

Yup, this couldn't have been more perfect timing.
At out safety meeting this morning we talked about our rail system, and how totally messed up it is, and has been for quite some time now.
I rolled this particular pipe out of the cure oven, and when she got to the middle of the rails, where there's a walkway...... The flanged end bounced off the floor!! Not hard, but yet enough where I knew it was time for me to walk out of my work area to outside.
Where it would finally come to rest would be any-ones guess!!
This pictures shows it wedged itself into the walkway, and resting against the east wall.
It'll be an easy afternoon!! Lol

The Range........

Not that I'm knocking, shit I'm here too!!!!!! I do have to say I miss the woods/lake/wherever else!!


Northern Mn. Tradition......... The Street Dance!!

I'd rather be at the lake or in the woods, but the kids dig being able to do what the adults do. It's also fun watching the people of the "Range".... Be people of the "Range."
