Our new sofa arrived. Finally.

It was a very rainy morning…

In fact, it was raining so much that the dogs didn’t even want to go on a walk. We basically dragged them down to the end of the street to potty.

This morning our new sofa was finally supposed to be delivered. I think we ordered it all the way back at the beginning of August. So long ago in fact, that I couldn’t remember what it was supposed to look like or even what color we ended up choosing. We had the space in our living room all ready…

And then it was here…

And our new sofa is just perfectly splendid…

It’s so nice and stylish and very, very comfortable to sit on. Maybe we’ll actually start watching TV is our living room instead of always retreating upstairs to our bedroom. We’ll see. But we’re very happy with our new sofa.

Today was the start of the college basketball season. I watched Xavier just destroy Oakland. And Michigan hold off a very good Bowling Green team. It’s terrific to have college basketball back in our quarantine lives.

I finished up my projects for the week. And it was time for the long four-day holiday weekend. It was also time to take the dogs on the evening walk around the block…

We clouds didn’t even look real this evening. They looked like a painting…

Good evening from Northside…

Genifer ordered holiday sweaters for Oscar and Mack…

They’re a little snug. But still very festive. Mack didn’t seem to mind his. But you could tell Oscar was mad while he had his sweater on.

We had a few drinks this evening to celebrate our new sofa and because it was the biggest going out night of the year.

But we were still in bed before eleven o’clock. 😀🌄🌧️🏡🌻🐾🍻❤️

And this photo of Mack showed up in my Timehop today…

Two years ago, I got this “Rocket Drone ZF7 With Folding” to review…

I was so excited to try it out. There’s a big open soccer field behind the school on top of hill at the end of our street. I started flying it and…

With it still hovering in place, I started to record video of my drone’s maiden flight. I touched the left joysticks and the drone started to drift away from me. Frantically, I started moving both joysticks to try to pilot the drone back in my direction. But the controls went completely unresponsive as the drone drifted towards tall trees just on the far side of the soccer goal in the photo above. I started to run after it hoping that if I got closer to it maybe I could regain some control of the drone. But I couldn’t get close enough in time and I watched it hit the top of one of the trees and drop to the floor of Parker Woods on the other side of a ten-foot chain-linked fence…

And it’s still out there somewhere…

Maybe someday I’ll try a different drone. Maybe one from DJI. But probably not any time soon.

Thanks for the memories, Timehop. 😐🦕❤️

Remember when I stumbled across a complete set of the buttons and magnets we made for our wedding? We still have them on our refrigerator.

Thanks for all the wonderful memories, Timehop. 😀🦕❤️

Two years ago, I was recovering from my second hip replacement surgery…

Three years ago today, FC Cincinnati’s magical 2017 US Open Cup run continued as FC|C defeated Chicago Fire on penalties in the Round of 16. It was an amazing night that will forever be etched in Cincinnati sports lore…

Thinking about that night still gives me chills.

And four years ago, we officially moved into our house in Northside…

Unpacking is just the worst. I’m glad we’re all settled into our great big house now. And we said goodbye to our little apartment downtown…

Five years ago, Cincinnati was getting ready to host the MLB All-Star Game…

Thanks for all the wonderful memories, Timehop. 😀🦕🍕❤️

Two years ago today, Michigan played against Villanova in the college basketball National Championship game…

Michigan ended up losing 79-62 in the championship game but what an incredible tournament run it was! GO BLUE!

These cute photos of Mack popped up in my Timehop this morning…

Two years ago today, I had my six-week post-operation checkup from my first total hip replacement surgery…

Everything is still feeling really good with my new hips. It’s pretty bonkers that it’s been over two years since I had my first hip replaced. It’s also pretty bonkers that all that hardware is in my body.  😀🏥❤️

Happy birthday, Mack!

Two years ago today, Mack joined our family…

He’s a good buddy. I love him. And I’m really happy he’s part of our family. 😀🎂🐾❤️

And thanks for the memories, Timehop. 😀🦕❤️

Two years ago, I had my first hip replacement surgery…

There are still the occasional aches and pains, both hips are still 100% better than they used to be before my replacement surgeries. Thanks, Timehop!😀🦕❤️

Oh, and remember when I got to eat magic middles in bed…

YUM! But I’m really happy my hips are better now. It wasn’t any fun when they were all messed up and hurting. 😀🏥❤️

Two years ago, my nephew Edgerton sent us this amazing little piece of art entitled, “Octopod for Shellington & Captain Barnacles”…

And it’s still one of my favorites and it’s still hanging in my office…

I adore this little piece of art.😀📝🐙❤️
