Outta my Monday Moanin' Mind...(apologies to Bob Talbot)

-Well this was SUPPOSED to be the last weekend...the whole "end of the world" thing...yeah...what a shock! Luckily my Facebook friends Paul and John O' found these GREAT pictures that kind of summed it all up...

-It was a sad weekend at Casa Russell, as my Kalamazoo Wings lost the ECHL's Kelly Cup Finals to the Alaska Aces. As a fan of a team that has only played for the Championship of their respective league 6 out of 38 seasons, I was pumped. But when they went down 3-1, well it looked pretty somber. And it was. Alaska won 5-3 Saturday night to win the Cup in 5 games. Still the Wings were the last hockey team to still be playing in the State. Great Job Wings!

-Grilled a steak on Saturday night. Landlord got the grill out on the new deck and I took advantage. And it. was. AWESOME! There really is nothing better than grilled meat, of just about any kind. Unless you are a vegetarian. In that case, I say "Sorry".

- Have you seen all the leaves? 2 weeks ago is was still spring. Not any more. It's now really summer, be dammed what the calender says. Whoo Hoo! And where warm temps and leaves are, tanktops aren't too far behind. Double Whoo Hoo!

- Sunday...in the park, I think it was the 4th of July....
