The PubGuys #33 Recording session at Big Shots in Bedford. I have to admit that when we started I hoped, but didn’t believe that we’d last this long. 33 episodes and a growing fan-base later, we’re still groing strong and growing in both ability & tolerance every week. I have told my wife numerous times, the PubGuys is one of the best things I’ve ever been involved with.

Thanks, PubGuys!

Remove the back of my head from this photo and you have a glimpse of what I see every day. It looks a lot more messy than it really is. I promise.

ChapStick

I don’t normally use ChapStick, but it’s so hot outside, I’m doing just about anything I can to cool things down. Metholated ChapStick provides the illusion of cool to my lips.

Squeak

   Posted by: crazyBobcat    in Daily

23 May 2010
I spent the day feeling lousy and just wanting the day to end. I was hot, miserable, cranky, sales were down and it just wasn’t getting any better. So, what I do when I’m feeling down? I do what everyone at faire does and I went to see the Iris & Rose show. It makes me smile. A bonus on weekends like this is tht my Squeak is also present.
Squeak
I only wish that my shite little camera focused on her face instead of the hat – but, I was too hot, miserable & cranky to notice or care.
Cheers.

Tossing the Dice

   Posted by: crazyBobcat    in Daily

22 May 2010
Taking full advantage of the hazzard table that Jorge built for East Wind Games, I spent a good portion of my Saturday down by the lane teaching & playing dice games. I love that table.

I also love these dice – handcrafted by Captain Lattimer.

Filling the Jug

   Posted by: crazyBobcat    in Daily

21 May 2010
I woke up today feeling lousy & looking worse. A brief conversation with my boss gave me the ability to work from home. So, I did. I worked on a couple of outstanding production issues that have been hanging over my head since I took this position. I’m getting closer to getting some of them cleared up…finally.
When the work day was done, Marita Beth was not, so I went ahead and ran the errands that she normally takes on. Get the groceries, get the change and, in the face of a hot & humid weekend, get the water.
Filling the Jug
For $1.25, I can fill this jug with 5 gallons of cool, clear water. Or, I can go inside and buy a pre-filled bottle for $9.00. That’s not enough a choice, really.
What I learned today? Never try to fill a 5-gallon jug of water when you already have to pee.
Cheers.

The Remains of the Show

   Posted by: crazyBobcat    in Daily

19 May 2010
Tonight we recorded the 31st episode of the PubGuys. And, we did it in our old stomping grounds, Rob’s Billiards & Sports in Euless. I like the place, and I enjoy recording PubGuys there. My only wish is for less cigarette smoke in my hair and equipment.
Remains of the Show
The photo is just the last bits of stuff that need to be packed up, put away or drunk.
Cheers.

Peripheral Back

   Posted by: crazyBobcat    in Daily

17 May 2010
They call me DOC-tor Caruthers!
It’s true. Not sure why, but I’ve recently been given the monikor in exchange for my ability – some would call it a curse – to fix those things what need fixin’. Most recently it’s been the digital projector in the conference room. Nary a day went by when it didn’t seem I was going in there to help someone plug all the cords in to the proper slots. So, I wrote a how-to that has been laminated and is now attached to both the wall and to the remote control. I took photos to illustrate the connections. This is one that didn’t make the cut.
Iomega Extreme
They’re the only photos I took today. I’m just a corporate dweeb.
Cheers.

Thumper

15 May 2010
I have a sneaking suspicion I know why Thumper is smiling – you just can’t see her in this photo. :-)
Thumper
Thumper takes a brief respite leaving against the Blazing Sun Plank 2.0 just outside East Wind Games at the Scarborough Renaissance Festival on the the 5th weekend of faire.
