        1. Slinging out brunch burgers and bloody marys til 4. Mow the lawn as it is soooooo overdue. Then, my neighbor made some tasty blueberry liquer that we will check out. Sunshine in Alexandria today. It's a miracle!

          1. Mowing the lawn (with dogs), grocery shopping (sans dogs), and nap in chair (with dogs, of course).

            1. I also mowed. We’ve had rain nearly every day for a few weeks, and the leaves from all the mature trees ringing the yard are about to start coming down in earnest.

              1. Same here. It was a mess mowing. My low lying areas were so wet I left a lot of muddy tracks around. Had to be done.

    1. I handed out about 100 donut holes to people running the marathon this morning

      1. I also yelled hey Will at you but did not take a donut, though I immediately regretted it

        1. My neighbor told me you were yelling at me. I realized who you were after you had passed.

      2. I didn’t make it to your neck of the woods (ran the 10-miler), but I’d have taken one.

  1. Nibbish - Twins game is at 7:40 tomorrow. I will be wrapping up cribbage at 8. Let me know if you want to watch the game at the joint or somewhere else. No worries if you can't (jet lag). I am sure a lot of our players will stick around to watch the game.

  2. I had a vasectomy on Thursday evening, so I’m on my third straight day of rest already. No walks in the park allowed for me yet, though.

    1. Take it easy Mike. I just had a conversation with a couple buddies who over did it afterwards and paid a steep price!

      1. I am overdue. The uncomfortable part of it is the doctor who will do the snipping is a regular and cribbage player at the joint.

      2. I wonder how much the type of procedure matters. I had little discomfort on day two, ~36 hours later, but there was very mild soreness for two more weeks. Just enough to remind me it happened.

    2. Reminds of the final episode of Mad About You where he has a vasectomy and then she changes her mind about wanting to have more kids (twice!). He gets it reversed and then she wants him to get it done again. He lies about getting it done the second time and she ends up getting pregnant.

    3. Third straight day? Did they use a chainsaw?

      (FWIW, I was one of the lucky few who got an infection, so I was laid up for about a week)

        1. I was told to lay down as much as possible for three full days; only get up to get food, change the ice pack and go to the bathroom.

          I'm back at work today, but it's still rough. Not constant pain anymore, but very, very tender. Just about any movement is still painful, so I'll be up and walking around all day, but much, much slower than normal.

  3. I am in 2 fantasy football leagues, one with the WGOM guys and another with buddies from college. Both of my opponents this week had DeShaun Watson starting at QB. At least it wasn't the playoffs.

      1. At least in the WGOM league, I had somewhat of a down week. In my other league, I had the most points I've had all season and still lost by 50 points because the guy had Watson and the Packers' RB with 4 TDs.

        1. Our league got around this annoyance by focusing less on match ups, since you can't play defense in Fantasy.

          We had an 8 team league. Finishing first in a week netted you 8 points in the standings. Finishing second earned you 7 points, et cetera.

          If you beat your opponent you also got 8 points while they got one point.

          So if you lost but scored the second most points in the league, you still got seven out of sixteen standings points. If you got lucky and won despite scoring the second fewest points, you only got ten points in the standings.

          Everyone seemed to like it and it saved at least one person one year who just had a stupidly unlucky schedule but led our league in total points.

      2. 4 pts out of Julio Jones, an injured Davante Adams/1 reception by his replacement stand-in and L. McCoy (& the Chiefs) managing 13 total points against the Colts ... gross.
