New development: The barge that they are using to launch the fireworks has caught fire! 🔥🔥🔥

Not a single boat on the water, but won’t stay that lay for long. This evening boats will fill the lake like lily pads, as they wait for the fireworks display.

“A 661 lb stingray caught in the Mekong river is the biggest freshwater fish ever documented. It unseated the previous record-holder, a 646lb Mekong giant catfish caught in 2005.”
Lesson learned: Never go to the Mekong river!

Yesterday we had a big party to celebrate my parents’ 50th wedding anniversary. The priest that married them was planning to attend but couldn’t because of COVID, so they renewed their wedding vows via Zoom with friends and family watching on.

I’m not opposed to cold calls to published business numbers (like mine), but if my first interaction with your company is deceitful, I’m not interested in doing business with you.

Just got a super scammy cold call.
Step 1: A robo-dialer called and feigned a bad connection. “He…Hello? Can you here me? I’m going to call you right back.” (Hang up)
Step 2: Once they have a number that answers (meaning: me) a real person calls back with the cold pitch.

My calendar just alerted me that today is the 10 year anniversary of my last day working a j-o-b job. Ten years as an indie/bootstrapper. Here’s to ten more! 🍻

The quiet before the storm of Memorial Day weekend. I expect the lake will be swarmed with boaters by lunchtime. (Barbee, IN)
