The World Cup at Second Place.

We walked down to Second Place to watch the third and final World Cup match of the day: Germany versus Sweden

The ending of the match was crazy. Everyone in the stadium knew exactly what they were going to try to do. But then to actually be able to go out and actually execute it, that’s the truly amazing part to me. It was a really good game. And another really good time at Second Place. 😀🏆❤️

Look up in the sky.

It looked like it was going to be another rainy afternoon in Northside…

But the storm clouds blew over and it turned out to be a very pretty evening…


Summer Hours: Crown Republic.

I had my Summer Hours again today. This time was decided to check out a new place that just opened down the Eighth Street from work and just up Sycamore Street from where we used to live downtown. It’s a new gastropub called Crown Republic


Genifer tried one of their cocktails. This one is called Derby Punch with Jim Beam, Sage, Watermelon and Lemon…

They had a lot of items on their menu that sounded really good. It was a tough decision. But we made some hard decisions and lunch was served…

Genifer ordered the cheeseburger and it was massive…

Here’s my chicken po’boy…

Both sammiches were great and they were served with terrific fries. It was a really good lunch. Crown Republic also offers $3 Tall Boys. We each had a Hamm’s Tall Boy and hung out at Crown Republic to watch the Switzerland versus Serbia match in the World Cup highlighted by Swiss and Arsenal midfielder, Granit Xhaka’s outstanding strike. It was another wonderful Summer Hours Friday afternoon. Thanks, Crown Republic!

Pause for paws.

This morning we took Oscar to VCA College Hill to get his shots updated…

He gets so excited about riding in the car but that excitement dies just as soon as I try to get a photo of him being all excited to be in the car…

He got his shots updated and we were back on our way home…

He’s such a cutie face. 😀🐾❤️

Seen and noted.

We saw this just around the corner from our house on our way to work this morning…

A port-o-potty on a trailer. I’ve never seen one of those before. Taken with Instagram. 😀💩❤️

And I’m starting all over. Again.

I forgot to check my Timehop a few days ago, and now I have to start all over…

I was up over 330 Timehops in a row. Oh well. Timehop is still fun. I guess. 😀🦕❤

I’m still popular.

Apparently, my photos on Google Maps are still very popular

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

Fix it Cincy.

We scheduled a bulky item trash pickup through the Fix it Cincy app for tomorrow…

And this evening, we put our items our on the curb for collection tomorrow…

We disassembled the little plastic dilapidated shed that was left in our backyard when we bought our house. We tried and tried and tried to put it back together and get it to stay together. But it always kept falling apart on us. It was time for it to go. All the spiders that made their home in it are going to have to find a new place to live in our backyard. We also got rid of an old really cheap cornhole set and an old rug from our back patio. And finally, we put out our old Ikea mattress from when I first moved downtown. It’s best days were well behind it…

It was really good to get all those items moved out. I was checking one of our front porch OscarCams to see if they had picked up our stuff yet. And while I was checking, the truck pulled up to get our stuff. I was so excited that I got to see them grab our stuff. And I managed to capture a video of the pickup which was impressive because they grabbed all of our stuff in one swoop of a giant claw hand…

I was so happy that I looked just at the right time to see that really cool giant claw hand and placed in the back of the truck. And then I lost the video for about a week. I couldn’t figure out for the life of me where the video had saved on my little tablet if it saved at all. But just tonight, I finally found it and I was all excited again. Genifer just rolled her eyes at me that I took a video of the trash pickup, was frustrated that I couldn’t find the video and then so happy that I actually found it. I guess it’s the little things. Anyway, thanks for coming and getting our stuff, Fix it Cincy! We really appreciate it. 😀🚚❤️

It’s what’s for dinner.

Genifer made one of my favorites for dinner tonight, Mongolian Metaball Ramen

YUM! It’s sooo good. 😀🍜❤

Seen and noted.

I saw all these OK’s clustered on the sidewalk downtown. Okay?

Taken with Instagram. 😀🖌️👌❤️


UPDATE: I saw more okays on Eighth Street…

That’s the oddest approval process I’ve ever seen. 👌
