Happy #NationalTellAJokeDay!

A bear walks into a bar and says to the bartender, “I’ll have a pint of beer and……………….

…a packet of peanuts.”

The bartender asks, “Why the big pause?”

Happy

I’m still pretty popular.

Apparently, my photos on Google Maps are still pretty popular

It’s pretty nice to still be popular. 😀🗺📷❤

Chicago Gyros & Dogs.

We had Chicago Gyros & Dogs delivered to us via UberEats tonight. It’s become our go-to place for ordering delivery that isn’t pizza. Genifer ordered a Greek salad…

And I ordered this incredible little sack of corn dogs…

I love corn dogs. I love corn dogs so much. And we live in a truly wonderful world where people will deliver corn dogs right to your front door whenever you’d like.

Is this heaven? No. It’s Cincinnati. 😀😍❤️

Hello praying mantis.

I saw another praying mantis today. This one was just hanging out at work…

That’s the second praying mantis we’ve seen recently. 😀🦗❤️

A new personal better than best.

Last week on Monday, I had a personal best Monday for points accumulated in one day on my Swarm. And not surprisingly, I ended up going on to set a new personal best for points in a week on my Swarm. My previous personal best was 3211 points

I still really like my check-ins on Swarm! 😀⭐️❤️

FC Cincinnati versus Penn FC.

IT’S FC CINCINNATI MATCH DAY THIRTEEN!

Right off the bat, we didn’t go to the match tonight. We thought a match at 6pm on a Sunday was just a bit too late for us and we didn’t want to be dragging for the rest of the week. So we just stayed home and watched the match on TV. FC|C ended up winning the match 1-0 on a Manu Ledesma free-kick that took a wicked deflection off the wall…

The win extended FC Cincy’s unbeaten run to 12 in a row. And put them 5 points clear at the top of the standings in the USL’s Eastern Conference. And that’s cool and all, but I probably wouldn’t have even done a blog post about this match if it wasn’t for a really wonderful video that aired at halftime on TV. The segment had the three remaining original players from the first season talking about their experiences with the club over the last three years. It was awesome. And I don’t know if I would have ever seen it if we had actually gone to tonight’s match…

It was a really great video with the remaining OGs of FC|C soccer. 😀⚽️📺❤️

Running some errands on the Westside.

We ran some errands over on the Westside of Cincinnati this afternoon. Genifer got a new Fitbit Versa from Best Buy. We stopped to say hi to Genifer’s brother’s family. And we stopped at Aldi for some groceries…

It’s the first time I’ve ever been to an Aldi. I was kind of surprised how much good stuff they had at Aldi. We picked up a few things for the week including this oven pizza…

For just an oven pizza, it was really good. Who knew Aldi had such good stuff? 😀🍕❤️

Seen and noted.

We always chuckle at this flower pot family whenever we head over to the Westside…

Every time was pass it, it’s always different. But it’s always equally elaborate. We always wonder what the backstory is and how it all got started. No matter what the story is, it always entertains us. And gives us a good chuckle as we shake our heads as drive by. Oh, the things people do to entertain themselves. 😀🌻❤️

Happy birthday, FC Cincinnati!

Three years ago today, it was announced that FC Cincinnati was getting a USL soccer team. I remember being stunned and then incredibly excited by the news that there was going to be professional soccer in Cincinnati. And that it was going to be played right in our backyard at Nippert Stadium on the campus of the University of Cincinnati…

We were so excited! We went to Rhinehaus in OtR to meet one soccer idols, John Harkes who was named head coach of the Queen City’s fledgling soccer team…

Happy birthday, FC Cincinnati! It’s been an amazing three years of USL soccer! 😀⚽️❤️

Pause for paws.

This morning these adorable photos popped up in my Timehop of Oscar looking out our bedroom window across at our next door neighbors roof…

He was on the lookout, always keeping a watchful eye out for squirrels…

Oscar’s so funny. And so dang cute. 😀🐾🦕❤️
