Welcome Home!

So Duane was supposed to go over to the Delta to fish with Dupree this weekend. Unfortunately there was a big fire and 22 apartment buildings burned down s he was a little busy. So instead Dupree used his spare time to document his new neighborhood. He actually has a neighbor now and it is the best neighborhood ever, right between a bar and a laundry mat...what more could he ask for?

This guy was so wasted he almost tipped over...lucky for him security realized he had snuck into the party and kindly escorted him out!

We Got An Air Conditioner

It has been so hot here lately, we decided to get an air conditioner. The directions were simple or so they seemed. The main idea is that you vent it out the window...easy enough. NO. The problem is you have to build a panel that fits around the vent so the house is "secure", as Duane puts it. Building that panel took longer than building the deck - well almost. The house is now super cool. Gracie is very happy!

Tired and Hot

Today I had to run out for a meeting...this is what I came home to. Duane, who got NO sleep at the station last night and Gracie who got NO sleep last night (she was too busy protecting the house) were sound asleep on the floor in front of the fans. Too cute!

Pretend Fishing

It was a beautiful night and I was just enjoying the evening. I didn't really want to fish, so I threw a bait in the water and pretended to be trying. Duane did well though, he caught about 7 small mouth!

Breakfast at Squeeze In

I love nacho cheese know the plastic, fake, delicious cheese that comes on nachos, pretzels... it tastes good on everything. Yesterday at breakfast, Duane and I split an omelet and we each got to pick our own flavor of sauce (mushroom, pesto/tomato or CHEESE, I chose cheese, who wouldn't? Try it, your gonna like it! Yum

48 Hours Home Alone

Why do I decide to move things around when Duane is not home. It's like I'm bored, I am. Today I decided to move my personal training studio out of one room, and into another and then set up the guest bedroom. I know why i do it when he's gone...he would flip if he saw the mess I create when I "rearrange" everything. Damn neat freak!

Duane Gets Pinned!

Duane officially became a captain. (For the Fire Dept. not of a boat) We all went to his badge ceremony and watched him get pinned, by him Mom! Good Job!

4th of July

We went over to Sacramento for the end of the 4th of July weekend and we had a BLAST! Duane sported his fuchsia speedo and we all ended up at Travis's, I mean Dupree's, work. This is what he wore to work for "nerd night". My question is why does Duane own the pink speedo and why does Dupree own these clothes?

Morning Coffee

We decided to have our morning coffee watching the sunrise the other day! The view was beautiful...even Gracie liked it!

Lunch Date

When I was living in California I would sometimes, OK always, drive 40 minutes to get to a Fuddruckers! I love their burgers, especially the buns! So Good! Well, they just opened one out in Sparks, about 10 minutes from the house - so Duane took me on a lunch date yesterday. One of my favorite things to eat it "nacho cheese" - and guess what? This Fuddruckers has these two machines...unlimited nacho cheese, no extra charge! I want one for the house! Yum!
