Sometimes a fork in the road is so subtle…

Shop Time: More small projects.
This particular habitat does not have to repel rain as it resides under the roof of her back porch (thus the flat roof) but only a slight modification would allow for an adequately slanted roof.
It is just primer for now, still has to be painted to match her house, but really its almost wrapped up. Still it fun to do a quick project like this with no plan just winging it with left over materials I just have hanging around.
Sunday morning shopping with the Girl
bonus overhead on the couch....
The Girl: "Why did you take that photo?"
Me: "I just thought the perspective looked cool."
The Girl: "Yeah, it does. I noticed you taking it,I thought: there he goes again."
Me: "What are you saying?"
The Girl: "Only you would see that... like the shiny lights that hang from the ceiling"
Me: " OK now you are just f'n with me."
The Girl: "Now?"

Go Blue: Michigan Vs. Ohio State
Michigan and Ohio State this Saturday noon at the Big House here in Ann Arbor.
Yes this is the game that we wait all year for. This is the game that both programs wait all year for. This is the game who's importance can not be overstated.
A game that brings mind to the likes of "Yost", "Woody", "Bo", "Tressel" and "Moller" and "Carr."
This is the game that will cement Hoke's legendary status as the coach who in his first year once again brought the Maize and Blue back to prominence or will take us deeper down the rabbit hole.
The Buckeyes are on the ropes and the Wolverines are hungry for revenge for the last seven losses. The winds of change are in the air for the first time in years. Usually an underdog has a certain appeal but Tressels transgressions have cast a shadow so long that even the most ardent of Buckeye fans can not look you in the eye much less pull together to form a threat. This is the brass ring and it is Michigan's for the taking.
Michigan has the talent, the drive, the home field advantage yet this is a rivalry game, and as such it is a game you can throw all of that out of the window. ANYTHING can happen. As such this game can not be taken for granted by the Michigan faithful. In short, this is THE game and we have to bring it all to the table.
Suddenly Hoke and the program stand at the door of new era of Michigan dominance, we just need to punch it through.
This will be the 108th meeting since the rivalry began in 1935 between Michigan and "that team from Ohio" and while every game has been important I would argue that NONE were more important than the contest that will take place tomorrow.
Tomorrow under partly cloudy shies, it is supposed to be a perfect 55 deg. at kickoff. The rain has been pushed of until Sunday as if mother nature herself knows just how important this game is.
This is the game we have been waiting for... all season.
This is the game we have been waiting for all decade.

Range on the home
Its so shiny.
The old one finally died for for the final time and after much deliberation and quite a bit of comparison shopping she settled on the super deluxe shiny model.
I have been so busy lately. Things have been ramping up at work and the end of the year push is not helping things.
This weekend has been 100% work, I am looking forward to an shorter holiday week.

Deer Season Opens today (firearm)
It does remind me, however, of times past hunting with my father and my cousin... both of whom are now lost to me. Those woods in Osceola county will always always hold ghosts of the past. Both good and bad.
I do miss them.

My newest obsession: Zombieland 2 iPad
Here the uprising has happened and its up to you and your motley cast of characters to put a small dent in the madness by shooting first and asking questions later.
Repetitive? A little.
Juvenile? Most certainly.
Time annihilating? Without a doubt.
This game is just shiny enough to hold my attention long enough for me to blast my way through my bed time. No pun intended.
At .99 cents its hard to pass up entertainment like that.
Check out the trailer *here* or you can find it in the app store if you like.
