When a man lies, 
he murders some part of the world. 
These are the pale deaths, which men miscall their lives.
All this I cannot bear to witness any longer; 
cannot the kingdom of salvation take me home?

If I pretend I'm displeased with the baby waking me up, I am pretty sure (perhaps hopeful) that nobody will believe me. She took a couple of hours to go back to sleep.

Also, I forgot to mention that the hotel in NYC sent fliers up to the rooms to tell of an impending round of window washing. They wanted to warn us and, for privacy reasons, wanted us to all close our shades. I took a pic of said notice, but never posted it. It's all good, as it's not really significant. It's just something different. Either way, we were gone from said hotel room before they seemed to have made any effort to clean our windows.

I'm pretty sure those are the times that mean the most in the end. Just you and her, cuddled in your arms.

"Now go the fuck to sleep".  :D

I have rid myself of baby duties.

Next, I'm going shopping for toys and maybe a few more outfits.

That has to be even better than cars and guitars. Enjoy.

Damned right!

It's time for Indian cuisine and a break from walking.

I'm getting too old for this shit.

Sounds like it's going to be a good deal you have that bidet! Can you set it to cold water  :'( ?

Get some rest, do some craiglist shopping from the couch.

Yeah, it'll freeze your taint as well as make it warm and spectacular.

I am "in" for the day. I picked up some treasures for the kid, stopped at a credit union, ate Indian (dot, not feather) food, and then went for a saunter around. This morning was a museum trip, but the baby doesn't seem very interested in ships.

Should it not inline the image, see here:

I'm not even sure I have motivation to browse Craigslist. I should probably start, but I've got time. I don't have to be back until the 21st. We've got a show on the 22nd. There's no new material to go over, so we won't need more than a quick play-through of a few songs, just to make sure we're all on the same page. We've been together long enough to have learned to trust each other - and to demonstrate that we're trustworthy.

EH says hello.

That ship is an impressive piece of engineering and manufacturing. Thanks for the pic. Do they allow people to tour the entire ship? I would imagine that would take hours if so, and lots of ladders. Prob not something you would care to or be able to do. Not sure how interesting it would be to landlubbers anyway.

The nice thing about looking for a car is you don't have to buy one if something doesn't catch your eye. There'll always be something that does at some point and you well know how to get to your home from just about anywhere. Or it could be an adventure for the future. Just spitballing, you surely don't need my input.

Has the missus actually decided to come, and if so when? As great as EH is, I'm sure it would nice to have the missus to talk to and share things with.

Tell the little miss I said hello and hope she's having a good time. Did she ever schedule her GED?

The missus is slated to fly down on Saturday. She will fly back near the start of the week, so she won't be here long. She's probably just coming for the delicious food and accommodations!

And, EH and I have loads of great conversations. In some ways, they're better than the missus! The missus already knows everything! EH admits to still learning! And no, she'll schedule sometime after we return.

She said to say, "I'm having a great time, thanks." Then she went back to doing whatever it was she was doing. I am not sure, but I think she's texting J. That's what she was doing earlier and I'm not gonna ask. If I ask, I'll learn what she's texting and I don't really want to do that!

Also, yeah, the whole ship is accessible - from what I could tell. I didn't bother going below deck, but there were stairs to take me down if I'd wanted to. The baby was not dreadfully interested and they would not let me stick her in one of the guns to take a cute picture. So, we didn't stay very long.

They have guided tours and stuff like that, but I hate guided tours of museums and other similar stuff. If it had been just me, I'd have cheated and sent them an email ahead of time just to see if my honorary would get me extra access. It's remarkably handy to be Dr. TheBuddha when you want to access stuff like that. It's actually one of the few things a honorary and academic email address are good for.

I'll go car shopping, but probably not tonight. I got remarkably little sleep last night. Like, little sleep - even for me. I've got dinner coming and they brought two bottles of wine up ahead of time. So, I'm going to be right here doing pretty much nothing. I must have walked several miles (total) today. Much of that was with the added weight of a baby.

LOL Earlier, EH would reach over and try to touch the baby and I'd shoo her hand away saying, "Mine! My baby! No touch!"

Which was amusing and about the only cute story I can think of at the minute.

My brain is frazzled, even.

Looks like the kind of ships that they build around here. I had to do some work at a shipyard that was building nave destroyers or something and it was impressive to see all those ships under construction sitting on dry land. I would love to be there for the launching of one once.  There is a ship called the USS Green Bay currently in use by the Navy. That's even closer. I dont really like guided tours either. I would lag back and lose the group and look around by myself. I have to work this evening, even though I don't really like working in the evening or at night, but its part of a larger project and this step takes the businesses phones and internet down for a while so I have to do this work outside of business hours. Have a great evening spending time with that precious little baby

Thanks. Hope work isn't too shitty for you.

And, sometime I'll see if I can get a buddy to let me into BIW (where they make giant military ships). I'm not sure what I'll be allowed to take pictures of, but I'm pretty sure I can get in there. 

Also, the baby tuckered me out. I sent her home for the afternoon and night! I'll see her again tomorrow afternoon. We've got plans for tomorrow, so at least I should have something to write about.

And, yeah... I figured you'd get a kick out of seeing that ship. She's a beauty. I've seen similar ships do a full broadside and even salutes. When those guns go off, you can FEEL the sound move through you. It's as awesome as you might imagine!

if that's the best you can do I suppose it will have to do.

The struggle is real ;).

I'd write more but I have to go clean out my gutters and do my own grocery shopping.

Lolol, this, donít forget to take out the trash and cook summin too!

The struggle is real... haha

I noticed a fairly new user  bzeuuuh  in /guitar talking about beginning to learn to play. He's (?) made 2 posts so far, one today. Didn't know if any of you wanted to offer input or not. I didn't comment on his post and certainly wouldn't offer by ping for you to say anything.  FYI.
