Age and Play

Sam was in the garage tonight bouncing a ball. He had been doing this inside the house and it was driving everyone crazy so he was banished to the garage.

I felt bad so I went out to play with and he came up with some quick rules on how we were getting points. This lasted about ten minutes to where I got too into it and twisted wrong.

My back is on fire. Lol.

Thereโ€™s a forty one year age difference between us. But what am I to do? Iโ€™m his dad. He doesnโ€™t think Iโ€™m old. I hate to tell him, I am indeed.

But I do what I can when I can.

So Iโ€™m going to sit here and hurt awhile. Heโ€™s already asleep.

Thatโ€™s it. Thatโ€™s the post.


Stepping Up

This isnโ€™t going to be much of a post. Just showing a little progress in our podcasting setup.

Our mic stand/scissor arms came in today. Starting to look like weโ€™re actually trying to do something.

I get to balance some sound and figure out my mixing board this week in the evenings. It may not be perfect, but itโ€™s what we got.

And thatโ€™s what we work with.

Thatโ€™s it. Thatโ€™s the post.


Gonna Be A Rough Day/Night/Morning

Iโ€™m lying here, drugged, trying to fall asleep.


Keeping up with my priorities which today were:

1. Church โœ…

2. Recording The Podcast With Sam โœ…

3. Editing The Podcast (In Progress)

4. Sleep (Iโ€™m Trying)

5. Off To Work At Midnight (Reset)

6. Taking Delivery Of A New Range Some Time Tomorrow

Itโ€™s gonna be hard but nothing thatโ€™s worth it is ever easy.

Thatโ€™s it. Thatโ€™s the post.


The Perils of Podcasting (or trying to)

We are experiencing technical difficulties.

Rather than spending so much time in editing we are trying to use the equipment weโ€™ve had a few years, a mixer and real mics.

Iโ€™ve been working that most of the afternoon and I have to be up at 3AM for a project for work at 5AM. Thereโ€™s an hour an twenty minute drive between here and there. You can see my lack of time this weekend.

So during this week we are going to pull a decent show together (on paper) and give this a real go next weekend.

But Sam said we canโ€™t disappoint both of our fans so here you go:

No Show This Week

Weโ€™ll call that episode 3.75.

Thanks for reading and listening.

Thatโ€™s it. Thatโ€™s the post.


This Is Different

Any other time I walk in my sons room and he has a set of headphones on his head talking to his friends (you have friends?!) plugging away at Fortnite.

Tonight I walked in to this…

Yes. Weโ€™ve pulled out the Legos.

I am pleased. On his own he has decided on something at least creative.

So Mario in Lego. Interesting.

Paused for the evening. Artists are temperamental.

In search of blocks and running low on colors and shapes the artiste has taken a break for the evening.

I like this.

Thatโ€™s it. Thatโ€™s the post.
