Chapel of the Archangels in Beaver Dam

Last weekend's Wunderground Scientific Weather Forecast - NAILED IT!   Overall Columbus had almost exactly 3 inches of rain, less then most surrounding town's but enough, I guessto close the Kestrel Ridge golf course . . . or, no one was golfing Saturday.

Looking forward weather-wize. the only thing I see is Thursday and Friday might be cloudy.  THAT is the extent of exciting weather.  Otherwise I see 10 days of sunny upper 70's weather.  BORING!

*************************

So I went to the DR Friday and it seems I will live a long time . . . at least according to Western Medicine Doctors.  Low blood pressure, low pulse, low cholesterol. My only issues are low pain in my knee which I HOPE will go away with time. I know what it is having been through it a few times in my life (tear in my Medial meniscus . . . .maybe it will just go away over the winter.

Then there is our Governor who it looks like his next debate will be at the children's table as he is now 10th out of 11 and carrying less then one half of one percent in the polls.  HOWEVER - if he gets to 1% he will tell you he has DOUBLED his polling numbers. 

His tough job now is that it seems he owes more then $100,000 to event organizers who are getting angry at his non-payment.  The owners of the Chicago Cubs are one of his top fundraisers and are still praising him and the owners of the Houston Texans who donated $500,000 to his campaign is not worried as he also gave $500,000 to Ted Cruz, Jeb, and Lindsey Graham to hedge his bet.

My fantasy football team took a hit in a strange and bizarre day.  It started off with my opponent owning two Pittsburgh Steeler players, the ones that scored 6 touchdowns and I was in a HUGE hole.  But then he also owned three Philadelphia Eagles players, the ones who did absolutely nothing the entire game and I had hope as I went into the Packer game with two Seahawks and one Packer. 

I picked up James Jones Tuesday and I was feeling good but having mixed feelings because I knew Marshawn Lynch would have a big game and Jimmy Graham, who I THOUGHT, was a perfect fit for the Seahawks would be awesome.  Both did nothing and unless Andrew Luck can pull 6 touchdowns out of his butt tonight, I will lose.

Sofie (on the left), the cat that does not like human food seems to have a taste for VODKA!!

Yea - last night I walked into the kitchen and there she is licking the inside of a shot glass that was used earlier in the day for a dirty martini (I had had enough beer the day before with Elwood).

Speaking of Elwood.  Caydence and Sydney were over Saturday and they went to the GRAND OPENING of Cardinal Comics because the Frosty Princess was there face painting.  Frosty Princess I asked?  Yea - it seems if you say "Frozen Princess" three times and click your heels Disney will come knocking at your door within seconds asking for money.  Not unlike Universal Pictures did during Public Enemies with their warnings (which I ignored).

If you remember there were stern warnings of  taking photos of Columbus and putting them on the internet. Well, I had an entire blog of photos (Public Enemies Photos)  and told them through this blog, if you have a problem contact ME personally!  They only contacted me AFTER the movie came out and it was a compliment from the 2nd Asst Director who said they read the blog daily and were entertained.

They were feeding some false information every so often leaking info that filming was at one place when it was at another.

I got "scolded" on the set at a picture car meeting in Oshkosh for 7 was a
highlight!  Along with getting yelled at when I got this shot from a picture car during rehearsal.

"YOU WOULD NOT BE SITTING THERE HIDING IN A CAR DURING A BANK ROBBERY WOULD YOU?

"Well, seeing that everyone running was getting shot, yea I would".

*******************************

Where was I - Oh yea (it's the coffee typing now).

Sydney and Caydence were going home and they were told to say good-bye to Baba and Bwian and they came into the room where we were playing poker and out of the blue gave Elwood (Bwian) big hugs.

WELL, Elwood who is intimidated by children, gave a big slightly awkward hug back and said that was the first time in over 50 years he had hugged a child. It was too funny!!
