  1. Can’t believe the boys pulled it off! We were in Ohio for a softball tournament and missed the Cup parade in downtown STL. Been a Blues fan my entire 43 years and it was a special run to the end. Brought a tear to my eye when the clock hit zero.
  2. Another month in the books. Today is the last day at my job. As happy as I am to move on to other things it's a little sad to know this is it. I've been here for over 21 years, so it's kind of an end of an era. I start my new job on Monday at Gulfstream Aviation as a sheet metal mechanic for airplanes. Emma has a softball tournament this weekend, so that will keep us occupied all weekend. At least it's a fairly local tournament. Her normal team doesn't start until next weekend, so she's filling in with an older 18U team this weekend.
  3. First SCF win in Blues history last night! Let's keep this train rolling! The Blues had a much better effort last night....looks like we got ourselves a series.

    St Louis Blues

    We have a little thread going in the sports room Frank. Mostly I talk to myself in there lol. I've been a huge Blues fan my entire life. This is a special run for the franchise. This hockey club is long overdue for a Cup. The odd thing is that we've had better, more skilled teams in the past that never made it this far. Even with the series tied at one game a piece the odds are against us. This team just keeps fighting and it would be a pretty special series win for the Blues and all their fans.
  5. Well last nights game was underwhelming. The Blues had one good period and crapped the bed after that. The good news is that when they have played poorly they usually bounce back the next game. We need to get our first SCF win under our belt.
  6. We are off Monday for the holiday, so have a long weekend. Not a whole lot planned though. The high school softball team lost their regional game Wednesday night, so school ball is done for the year. Tournament season starts next weekend so no softball this weekend. I need to mow tomorrow if the yard dries up & will probably have to go to the inlaws to help pack & clean for their move. We had about another 3" of rain this week so it's muddy everywhere. Farmers are way behind schedule. Sunday my sister is having a holiday party/BBQ. The pool is open & it's been warming up gradually so the kids are anxious to swim. Monday is hopefully just a stay at home & relax day.
  7. The Blues are western conference champions! It's been an amazing story this year to go from being in last place in the NHL at the start of the year to where they are now. It should be great series with Boston. Hopefully we can solve Rask and bring home the Blues first Cup.
  8. That sounds pretty tasty! I have never marinated venison in apple cider before. Let us know how it turns out.
  9. Blues handled business yesterday! Up 3 games to 2 on the Sharks. We need to finish it at home tomorrow night & get ready for Boston.

    Property Dispute

    Sheesh. Man that sucks having to deal with all of this nonsense Frank. It sort of puts a damper on the excitement of owning new ground. I never realized there was a law about a fence becoming a set property line after 20 years. Hope you get this resolved with out too much of a problem.
  11. LOL holy crap....now that's a hand cannon.

    May 17 check-in

    We'll it's finally Friday! Onward & upward. I'll be putting my 2 week notice in at my job today. I've been here for 21 years, but it's time to move on to other things. Start a new job on June 3rd....more details to come on that, but I'm looking forward to it. Emma has her last JV game of the season tonight. She'll most likely be playing with varsity tomorrow & next week for regional's. Tomorrow afternoon we're going to the in-laws to help pack & organize for their move, & get ready for a garage sale. I suppose Sunday we're going to my wife's brothers house for a bbq & the kids to swim. It looks like summer is creeping in on us. We had the furnace on until Monday, and kicked the AC on last night for the first time this spring.
  13. The Blue managed to even up the series last night! Man, their power play is awful. If they can get the PP going & Tarensanko starts potting a few goals they can be dangerous.
  14. Blues laid a turd in San Jose for game 1. It looks like Boston has things under control in the east.
  15. Jeez Martin.....8" of snow in mid may is getting ridiculous even by northern standards lol. I talked to a buddy up in southern Minnesota where I used to live & he said they had a couple of inches last week as well. Been a crazy spring. It never made it over 50 here this past weekend, but supposed to be 85 here by Friday. I know exactly where your coming from Shaun. I'm pretty close to doing a job switch myself for a lot of the same reasons. My commute will be about the same as yours as well. Sometimes you just got to think about the future & where you'll be happy. I've been at the same job for 21 years, but it's not the same as it used to be here anymore. Good luck!
