Corn country

Boiler Up! We're in West Lafayette, Indiana for the weekend. Home of the Purdue University Boilermakers. We're helping our little boilermaker move into a new apartment. Four moves in four years. Ugh. My sore back. No sailing going on here. I feel closed in without any coastline nearby. Nothing but corn and soy. Mmmmm soy.
We moved everything in one day, so Sunday we just goofed off, and cleaned up the apartment, then kind of explored a little.

Alright, not much exploring to do in Lafayette, but we got into town for a bit. I really like the Irish bar that I've never been to. Four years, and it was right around the corner. What the hell. My Daughter was holding out on me. O'Bryan's 9 Irish Brother's. O'Bryan's, how fitting. I will be there come October for the Penn State game. Maybe a few black and tans before the game I think. I should introduce them to a Black and Sam. Geez, I'm thirsty.

We got Nic moved in one day, then another to sit around and annoy her. Deb and I started kicking around a soccer ball in her apartment, and got yelled at. She took the ball away from us. We're growing older but not up, as you can see.

I think Deb has a drinking problem. Actually, they were lined up on the deck because I took them out of the cooler, for transport to the fridge. We had good weather for the move, and now I'm looking forward to the next, as it will be the post graduation move. Yee Ha!

It was good to see our far away daughter. We're pretty proud of our little girl moving so far away, and handling things all on her own. She's grown up so fast, and we miss her so much.

  1. Nice blog. I came across your blog while blog surfing using the “next blog” button on the Nav Bar of I am continually fascinated by the types of blogs that exist on the Internet, and the various, creative ways in which people all over the globe express themselves. Thanks for sharing.

    I've done very little sailing in life, although I have been fortunate to travel to many a country with magnificent bodies of water. The part of the world which you frequent appears to be beautiful.

    My blog is dedicated simply to making people think differently about societal issues. As I often tell people, instead of encouraging people to believe that there are 2 or 3 ways to look at something, I want them to realize that there are at least 27. Hopefully such an approach will result in more creative, innovative solutions to societal ills. Have a visit should you like, and subscribe for updates should you like the substance:
