My daughter's bf just called me and asked if I would give my blessing to marry her. Very nice.

And yes I said OK.

He didn't have the balls to ask you in person?

Roverkid just finished packing to go to residential treatment tomorrow.   It's one of the saddest things I've ever seen.   She's cried a lot today.   I know this is the best thing I can do for her, but my heart is breaking.   

I'm so sorry for both of you. You both have to be emotionally exhausted.

My condolences Grove and good luck and prayers to roverkid.

Breaks my heart when kids go through stuff like that. Hang in there, both of you.

checked her in today.   took hours.  her mom held it together until we left and then lost it.  I'm a wreck.   She had the option of calling tonight, but didn't.  I'm physically sick.

Probably going to do stand-up for the second time tonight.  Not quite sure though.  Also don't know which 5 minutes to do.

I have one on how absolutely hilarious this is. abandon all hope

Or maybe the bit about a couple arrested for including their dog in their sex life.

I'll see what the crowd is like before I decide.  You can pretty much spot a pro-dogsex crowd within about 3 minutes.

How did it go?

Good.  Tonight there were two guys that weren’t there last week.  Both are pretty much the local “pros”.  Both are funny as hell.   Got good feedback from both.   The  really good one told my wife “that’s really only his second time?”

Again, I think my material is decent. It’s not outstanding but the last two bits I’ve done are some of the first things I’ve ever written.  

I’m really working on my timing/delivery.  It is getting better for sure.

roverkid called me today and was totally roverkid.  stoic as hell, but hitting all of her benchmarks.  went 7-2 on betting college basketball today.

one of her concerns was whether she'd be able to fill out a bracket.

thanks.  facility is in Edmonds.   I'm learning all of the information on the fly.   at this point, all exercise is off the table as she can't spare any calories.  we'll get her back and gambling on horses soon.  

I'm 25 minutes from Edmonds. No idea if I can be useful or not, but if I can you know how to get ahold of me.

Flying back home to say goodbye to my grandmother who is hanging on in hospice. First time my daughter is flying since we brought her home from Taiwan when she was 1. She's been anxious about flying. We've now been at the airport for 6 hours, an hour and a half of which was spent on the plane before going back to the gate and deplaning thanks to a storm across PA. Neat.

Its going to be really hard for a while, but letting the pros do there work is the way to go.

Definitely not. Celebrating/mourning my exit from the bike industry this weekend, however. Start at a software company Monday.

New Irish bar opened in my town.  They have a band that turned the Pogues into a dirge and is now playing the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.   Leaving before I slit my wrists.

Should probably have slit the bands' on your way out.  Egads.

Day 2 of roof replacement.  The devastation yesterday was pretty impressive.  Not too much water damage resulting in just a few extra boards. Drip edge and shingles with cleanup happening today.  Should be interesting to see how ridge vents work versus the garbage box vents I had before.  My dog is not pleased with all of this.  I took her out for a cheeseburger yesterday, but she’s gonna want something more today.

Mrs. O has challenged the HOA on many things such as rain barrels and artificial turf and won.  Only a matter of time before she champions another cause.

Can I borrow her to fight City Hall here?

I have a concrete stoop in front of my house. I wanted to put a little roof over it. Not extend the footprint of what's already there - just cover it. My town told me it went against their offset ordinance. On top of that, my sidewalk actually sticks out further, but I didn't want to cover that - just the 4x4 stoop so I'm not in the rain trying to open my door (plus, it would make the front of the house look better). I was all set to go to war, but ran out of gas and now it's like :shrug:

That’s quite a pickle.  I’ll ask her.
