20190731 + Show Shop Big Food

20190731 + Up in the am and it is a no sun day for all of us. We were out too long yesterday and everyone has at least one burned section one them... so as everyone got up and ready I got on the phone and made some calls. Everyone ready and we headed north to Pirates Voyage. We got checked in and some snacks and watched the preshow. J&G really wanted to go but didn’t seem to in to it... preshow over and we headed in to the main event. I had arranged front row seats for us and it put us much closer to the action than we’ve ever been before. The show was great and then the server girl came up to us and said ‘I need the four of you to go over to the stairs over there’ (I arranged that too...) We were then called out onto the performance apron to take part in a bucket brigade race against a family on the other side. We did great! Everyone got wet but we filled the bucket and broke our balloon first! It was a blast!


After the show we headed to Broadway at the Beach to spend the rest of the afternoon shopping. We all got something at the giant candy store and it was plenty hot out so we stopped for a Ben & Jerry's treat along the way. We hit the beef jerky outlet and a Ron Jon's but J didn't want to spend any of his own money :-)


Done shopping we headed back to the condo and L found a little local Italian place to eat. J ordered a Stromboli and WOW was it big! All the food was unreal, definitely a new favorite! After dinner we headed to the condo and to the pool. We played at the pool until the boys needed to go back to the room... back at the room and everyone settled. G&I explored the outdoor movie they were showing and then back to watch some Shark Week until bed time.

20190730 - Feather, Beach, Putt-Putt & Pool

20190730 - Up late and to Myrtle Beach St Park for the morning. We caught waves on our boogie boards for hours. G only had one panic attack when he thought a shark brushed up against his leg, make that 2 when he thought he broke his toe... I ended the session by digging a chair in the sand at the edge of the incoming tide and relaxed and baked for a min.


We headed back to the condo at 3 where we all got cleaned up and inspected the new shades of red my torso has geometrically splashed across it. After we all got cleaned up quick we headed to the Hammock Shope at Pawleys Island. We checked out the shops as they closed at 6, a bit too early I’d say, and they were mostly fancy expensive shops. We did find one cool toy store where we got a couple things. We then walked to the BisQit restaurant where we had an amazing meal! Started off with gourmet shakes and then wings and rosemary sea salt garlic fries and then amazing burgers. J built his own: tomato, pickle, lettuce, BBQ sauce, mushrooms, spinach, provolone and queso, chili, chorizo and avocado. The food was unreal and we were stuffed, especially J. Back in the car and to Gilligan's Island putt-putt where I dominated the course. We had a good time despite the super slow players ahead of us. Back to the condo where I applied layers of aloe and had a drink. L put everything away, J played with ball on a string toy he got and G touched up photos. We all gave D a call, he and Lilly are still alive and had some friends over. L&G ran to the pool and J&I hung back relaxing.


20190729 + Beach Time!

20190729 + Up in the am and to Huntington Beach St Park. We stopped at the world’s largest shark to get some supplies before hitting the beach. To the beach and we walked a bit and found ourselves a wonderful spot and hit the waves. We biggie boarded for hours and hung out under the umbrella. What a peaceful morning and perfect weather. After our beach excursion we walked through Atalaya Castle a 1930’s winter home of the Huntington’s. It was super cool. Headed back to the condo with a stop at Pelican’s Snow Balls for a tasty treat. One more stop to pick up some drinks for L&I before we got back at the condo and we got cleaned up and headed way up To North Myrtle Beach to try out a new buffet place, Captain Jack’s, it was amazing. G brought back plate after plate of ribeye steak and J didn’t move as long as we kept a plate of crab legs in from of him.



On the way home we stopped at Hawaiian Village mini golf where we play 36 holes and I emerged the victor of putt-putt round 1! Back to the condo and G still on hyper speed we went to the pool for the last hour it was open. Back the the condo and G made me some ice cream and we watched some of Shark Week on Discovery to end the day.

20190728 + Panic and Arrival

20190728 + Up and down to a disastrous bfast situation... this is the 1st weekend for this hotel to be open and they did not have their 💩 together... out of eggs, coffee, bagels, etc and only 1 girl scrambling around trying to do everything... I went into the hotel office and told the 3 people standing there on their phones to get out there and help her, this is NOT how a Hilton hotel should be... In the car and J driving... I started him off on a bit of a hilly twisty side road to get use to the car, we almost got hit by a tractor pulling a hay mower.  L was an absolute mess in the back but J got us to Shot Tower where we climbed the 77 steps to the top to see how they dropped molten lead 150 feet to make shot for the civil war. Back on the road and this time the highway up a mountain and then down. The speeds extreme slope, curves and perilous drop over the guardrail were a bit too much for L as her leg and eye were twitching... J got us into North Carolina and to the rest stop where L took over driving for a bit.  L drove us a couple hours and got us to Ellerbe NC where we are at an out of the way place the Ellerbe Springs that used to be a school, confederate troop housing, inn, Boy Scout camp and finally a restrauant and campground.  We had amazing food and learned about all the ghosts on the property. After we explored a bit we made the short trip to the Rankin Museum that had super cool exhibits, especially the Andre the Giant one!  


Over to the World’s largest strawberry for a cool sweet treat before the last leg with one more quick stop at the World’s tiniest church!


Finally to our condo and checked in we headed to the beach to jump in the Atlantic for a few moments to reward ourselves for the journey. We swung through Popeye’s for some chicken on the back to the condo. Back to base and we ate and then L&I headed to Piggly Wiggly to get a million dollars worth of groceries while J&G swan and the condo pool. Home and some ice cream before bed.

20190727 - 3 States to Chinese

20190727 - Up in the am and L took J&G to a 5K run at academy park. D&I got up and around and D ran some stuff to Goodwill and got the car washed while I cleaned up the garage. Everyone home and D and I installed some molding around the ceiling of the basement steps, it looks great, not sure why we waited 18 years to do... After the the project I finished cleaning the garage and then LJG&I packed up the car and headed South. A quick 5hr drive through southern Ohio, all of West Virginia and to Wythville Virginia to the usual dinner stop the Peking Chinese restaurant.


We had a good meal, I found us a hotel and we headed over to check in. Of course the pool was closed 🤨 so G&I got our phones out and took a walk to do some Pokémon hunting. Back to the hotel and we played some pool, J joined us for 1 game, then G played some little boy that was watching. G&I finished out the night playing a hug connect 4 game he couldn’t beat me 🤓

20190726 - More Ads

20190726 - Up in the am and in to work, L dropped G off at XC. I stopped to fuel up the car on the way. In and caused my usual disruption. Dug in to stuff to finalize everything is good to go for next week. Finished up a bit late but confident things will be fine and headed home. Home got L&J and we dropped J off in Bexley with JGF2. L and I parked and went to a restaurant that was too fancy for her so we drove out Main St until she found something that suited her, Flavor 91 burger place. The food was amazing but the service was almost as slow as the Mifflin Inn... we rushed out after scarfing down our food and made it to Pickerington to pick G up from a bday party. Found my buddy Bill's car in the parking lot and decorated it a bit... Home and getting things in order for the trip. I installed another camera in the basement gameroom and then D home from a 10hr day, J home a bit after 11. All to bed expecting a busy day tomorrow.

20190725 - New Hood

20190725 - Up in the am, L dropped J at XC and then took Lil on a walk. I got ready for work, went up and reminded D it was NOT OK to spend the entire day in his room... Headed in to work, the traffic diverted me to 161 and took that all the west to work today. In the office a new shift of folks in for the firsts time so got to see some folks I hadn't seen since we moved out of the big office. Getting the day rolling and trying to figure out what I can get done before we leave.  Finished up the day and headed out a bit late. Home and checked out D's paint job, he painted the hood of his car to stop the rust and cover the bare spots, looks good! Had a quick bite with LD&G before I had to run to Bexley to pick J up from a movie date with JGF#2, she's super cute :-)  Home and hung out a bit and then DJ&I played some Texas Hold'em with D to introduce him to poker. Game over and all boys to bed. I stayed up WAY TOO LATE (3am) cleaning things up for personal and Boosters before vacation.

20190724 ‡ Knockout

20190724  Up in the am, L got J&G to XC practices and I chatted with D about wrapping up some lose ends. Headed to the bank to order checks for 3 separate little business accounts because the decided to change routing numbers and make my remaining checks obsolete and the online option wouldn't allow me to place orders (STAR BANGING HEAD). After 20-30 min of them thinking about how to do this for me they let me know the online system was down (YOU DON'T SAY, WONDER why I'm in the bank in the first place...) so I left my old checks there assured they would figure it out and order checks for me and let me know when it is done (OMG!). On in towards work and went North on 23 instead of South toward the office; I thought well it is early and I can run to Planet Fitness and get my 2 min of tanning done this am. Got to Planet Fitness and this one doesn't have stand up tanning beds, not doing the lay down kind... So in the car and now determined to succeed I drove to the Planet Fitness at Polaris. Got there and asked if they had the stand up ones and yes they do, 'I'll take 2 min in one of those please'. HOLD ON NOT SO FAST you need to fill out all these papers that determine your skin type and how long you can be in one of our tanning beds. WHAT? Are you serious the Planet Fitness in Gahanna tried to put me in a tanning bed for 13 minutes that would have cooking my internal organs without asking me a thing! Glad these guys knew what they were doing I took the time and filled out the papers and got my tanning done. On the road and it is a straight shot down old Worthington Galena rd to downtown Worthington. 5.3 miles to the office. 38 MINUTES! 38 minutes to go 5.3 miles! ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? OMG! Finally made it in to the office and got the day rolling... Had a busy day of cleaning things up in the office and then headed home. L worked on her doll house today and then cooked us dinner and then we played a new card game, Knockout. I was up late looking up things to do on vacation.

20190723 - Sticky Situation

20190723 - Up in the am, L ran J to XC and D headed out to work. I headed in and had crisis after crisis this morning destroying any dreams I had of getting things done today... Took a break and ran downtown to pick up the Scout awards that the Troop earned last week. The lady in the store, that has a maximum speed of a 3 finned tortoise in a shrimp net, attempted to scan the 49 awards I needed quickly and would have done much better had she not attempted to talk and scan when obviously simultaneous functions are forbidden in her brain.  Eventually made it out of the Scout Shop and headed back to work. Stopped at my bosses car just long enough to put a Trump 2020 sticker on it, he hates Trump and yes that is a Ferrari. Finished the day and headed home, had to go the back way because traffic on 270 was a nightmare. Got home and Gma&paW there. We headed to dinner at El Vaquero and had a good meal, D swung by for a minute from work to say high. After dinner I left them all school shopping and headed home. Talked to Jim in the backyard and he told me all the stuff he had to do to his house to get it ready to sell. In and worked on the graphics for the Booster Ad campaign I am starting tonight. Everyone eventually home with many purchases. Talked to D about vacation vs staying home to work vs baseball... L very upset about it all. Up until 2am sending out notifications for Boosters.

I got things fired up and started a busy week of planning so things run smooth next week while we are out. Home and no baseball! D&I ran to pick up his car, they didn't check out why the 'Check Engine' or '4x4' lights have been on forever... L made us dinner and we all sat down together and had a good meal.

Home and couldn't sleep, up tossing and turning until 3am being the last time I looked at the clock.

20190721 - Last 9

20190721 - Up late to a very quiet house. L ran to pick up J's from his friends, D at his baseball game, G sleeping like a bear in hibernation... Got some things together and L&I headed to D's game, J&G in slug mode. It was incredibly hot and the outcome of the game didn't matter, the boys are done after this game win or lose, so they had blast chatting it up and being goofy. They had the lead at one point but then a couple more injuries and things headed the wrong way. Boys didn't care, they were there to have fun playing a game they love and this is the last game of the season.


 After the game we headed home. I installed 3 Nest Protect smoke and CO detectors, D helped on one and J helped on one. Wrapped up the install about 9pm, ate my left over Chipotle and then headed to bed after a busy weekend.

20190720 + J's Prank

20190720 + Up at the crack of dawn and on the road. Attempted to swing through the McDonalds on the edge of town but that was as expected, a complete disaster and loss of 10 minutes: I got on the highway with no food and will NEVER go to that McD's again. 2 hour and 45min later I arrive at camp. As in years past I head back to the campsite to hurry the boys along. As I arrived at the camp I ran into Roger and asked how camp went, he replied 'Good fro some of us, not so good for others'. I asked if he was referring to my boys and he just made a sound like 'Eh'. Uh Oh what did one of my idiots do??? In to camp and immediately Rob, the Scoutmaster, said he needed to talk to me, this is not how i expected this morning to go... Rob called me over and Jack and another boy to let me know that Jack and his friend decided to do nothing all week, got no merit badges and failed to get their Pipestone. Several explanations were made and blah blah, but J was about to die when he pulled out his 5th year Pipestone and let me know it was all a joke and everyone, all Scouts and adults, were in on it. They got a good laugh as they saw me go from 0 to J Dead in a flash. Relieved, but still going kill J for doing that to me... Lowered the flag in the camp and then we hiked back tot he cars and everyone told talked of the week and how much fun they had, how good the Winger boys were... Got my boys int he car, gave them their clean clothes and pop and candy bars and we headed to the Dutch Kitchen in Dalton for lunch. On the way the boys told story after story of the funny and goofy and good things that happened. To the restaurant and we got the tables reserved and claimed. Soon the others showed up and we had a feats. Back on the road and the boys got their phones so they went silent... To the Farm and stopped for a quick visit with Gma&paW, where the boys told them the highlights of the week. Back on the road before we all fell asleep with a quick stop to look over the woodshed at the Farmhouse; it is not savable... On the road, stopped for gas and then nonstop to church to pick up the blue cards and on home. Home and J loved his desk and the other things L did in his room. J&G got cleaned up. L at D's 2 games of the day in record high heat advisories... J&G, all cleaned up and glued to their electronics and I attempted to rest a bit. Eventually L&D got home and J&G retold their stories of adventure. L&I out to pick up some last minute things from Home Depot and swung by Chipotle & Cane's to get dinner. Home and we all sat down together and ate and more tales were told as we all got caught up on what happened over the last week. After dinner J decided it would be a good idea to spend the night at a friends... and the rest of us watched the new 'Shazam' before heading to bed.

L&I hung out the back porch until time to head in.
