How I Spend My Evenings

What Does L Mean?

I rented the new Ford Focus when I went to Vegas last week. It was not the normal car I rent so I was a little confused. It seemed to not have any power or umpf to it and then I realized I was in L gear - oops.

Family Fishing Fun

My parents came over for dinner and decided they wanted to learn to fish...they didn't catch anything.


Duane is always talking about how he does everything. Well not everything obviously. Someone (me) didn't grocery shop so there is no food. Wait till I stop paying the garbage and cable! HA

Someone Likes Big Girls

I wish I could have gotten a closer picture of this. It is one of those signs, usually on mud flaps, that have the hot girl on them... This on has a fat girl and says THICK. Who thinks this stuff up?

Out For A Saturday Cruise

Gracie and I out on the PINK PONTOON!! Is that a health code violation?

Bad Girl

Really Gracie? I leave you alone for 6 hours and you destroy your bed? This only hurts where are you gonna sleep? Oh ya with me! Now I see your plan.

My Happy Place

Sitting in the hammock reading!

New Uniform

This made my night!! This is the shirt the busboy wore the other night! HAHAHAHAHA!!!

Drunk Tank

This guy was sitting at my bar pouring the pitcher of ice tea out all over the place 5 minutes before I took this photo. He's not drunk at all, no wonder management wouldn't kick him out...I should have served him another one! Three cop cars showed up and took him away about a hour later!

Burningman Traffic

Every year tens of thousands of people flock to black rock city to "experience" Burningman and "grow themseves". WHAT??? They go to the dusty desert have a life altering time, swear to come back to the "default world" and be peaceful and happy and then they go and do something like this. There are two lanes going over 80, one for cars and one for trucks and trailers. What did this "peaceful" burner do? This retard in his rickety old truck towing his rickety old trailer chose the car lane and then proceed to drive 35 the whole way instead of 55. As I passed him and looked at him he flipped me off...I say go back to the desert you A- HOLE.

Coloring Pete's Heads

The restaurant where I work has coloring papers for all the kids and adults. When a really good Pete's head gets turned in we frame it and hang it on the wall. It is VERY, VERY rare to get a wall worthy head. This is my favorite one that I've seen in a while. What did this kid draw on the sides?

Dress Code

I don't understand high school clothing anymore...supposedly these are THE sock to be wearing. NO!

Great America Amusement Park

I LOVE roller coasters and amusement parks. I love everything about them, except the lines. I bought a season pass, the gold one - which means FREE VIP parking, to Great America this year. I have gone so much. I have learned its best to go alone because they are always looking for a single person to jump the line. You get to ride everything in 1 day and never wait!!! Any way this is my favorite sign at Great America!!! HAHAHAHA


I tried pickling for the first time! DISASTER!!! I was following a recipe and it asked for bigger jars than I had so I eyeballed all the measurements...BAD IDEA. All 6 jars of pickles, carrots and green beans went into the Delta. I am now selling canning jars if anyone needs them!


4th of July is a happy holiday where people come together and watch neighborhood parades and have bbqs and watch fireworks....not in Danville. People start "saving" their parade spots at 6am on the 3rd of July. The rule is you can save your spot starting on the 3rd, but need to stay in your spot until 6pm and then your spot is your and saved. If your chairs are out at 6pm no one can move them. So there are crazy people that take their sidewalk chalk mark up their area of the sidewalk put a chair down and sit there for 12 hours to make sure they have a view of the parade. I am not talking Macys Thanksgiving Day parade here. I'm talking kids on bikes, old people playing instruments... Some of these parade goers are nuts!! Watching them is better than the parade!! Happy 4th of July!!

It's In YOUR car!

One of the most popular questions I am asked in my house is "Where is the tire pressure gauge?" Really?!?!?!? "I don't know", is my usually response to which I hear...."It was in your car last". It's NEVER in my car. I don't check my tire pressure, I wait for the little light to come on and tell me the pressure is low (unless its cold out and the light is on just because). Well please don't ask me where it is again. It was under your tire you idiot!

5 More Minutes

Gracie was obviously not ready to get up this morning!

Sea Adventure 80

Living Joke

I have pretty much been living in a swim suit since moving to Discovery Bay. And it seemed that as soon as I turned 33 I got fat. Soooooo I saw this ad on Living Social for this thing that makes you lose inches after just 2 appointments. Sounds too good to be true right? It was. I went to this "Dr.'s" office in Walnut Creek and and was introduced to the "Dr" and the Lipo machine. The doctor measured my stomach and and then strapped these little boxes on my stomach and set the machine for 10 minutes. Ten minutes later he came back moved the little boxes and set the machine for ten more minutes. When the ten minutes were up he cam back measured my stomach and I lost 3 mm. WHAT?!?!?!?! 3 mm I could have stopped drinking water for 1 day and lost that. I was kinda pissed. I still went back to the next appointment. (I mean I paid $99 for this package.) I Had the same results the second time and realized what a scam this stupid machine was! BOOOOO!!!!

Broken Down

The PINK PONTOON went out on Saturday and boy was it a disaster. The wind was blowing, it was freezing cold and people were a - holes. I was heading home from a LONG chilly day at Ski Beach battling the the 20 mph winds with a motor issue and guess what? I was stuck. The wind pushed my into the rocks, The PINK PONTOON was getting smashed against the levy. FINALLY I got it out into the canal and dropped anchor. The Sheriff came by and told me to call vessel assist. Well VA told me it would be about $750 to come help, so I basically decided to wait from a nice boater to stop and help or sleep there. I was super happy when two boats came by and said they would give me gas....if I took all my clothes off! WHAT!?!?!? That didn't happen. About 30 minutes later another couple came by and towed me all the way home! They were soooooo nice!!!

Love This

Poor Gracie

Poor Gracie! In over seven years Gracie has never really been sick - she's been hurt (hit by a truck, kicked by a cow, tangled in barbed wire, hooked with fishing hooks....) - but never really sick. Well the right side of her face swelled up and she could barely eat so I decided she needed to see a vet. Off we went. Apparently she has had a fractured tooth for a long while and it got infected and made her face swell. So she needed it removed and she had a tumor on her leg they wanted to cut off too. I scheduled the appointment and took her in. Poor this was so messed up from the anesthesia she couldn't walk to eat or go to the bathroom. I felt so bad for her. It took about 10 days before she was back to normal.

Happy Ending

When you see two teenagers walk in the restaurant doors and make their way to your sections you expect the worst. These two not only tipped, but organized the tip by money type!

Happy Birthday!!

Growing up Catherine and I had one of these (actually she had one of these). It is a Snoopy Snow Cone Maker. The other day I saw one on Pinterest and pinned it and a week later look what showed up fro my birthday!!! Can't wait to use it!! Why do they only come with purple flavor?

Sunset Cruise

Me and Gracie out for a sunset cruise. The PINK PONTOON is the best boat ever!!

Busy Day At Ski Beach

The PINK PONTOON had a super busy day at Ski Beach. I saw TONS of face tattoos, lots of fat people in bikinis AND sold lots of food!!!

TGI Fridays?

Nope this flair is for THE PINK PONTOON!!! Can't wait to add these to the boat!

Some nights we take chicken and lettuce and the boat, drive out a little ways and bbq and eat dinner as the sun sets! It's beautiful and nice! The perfect dinner.

The Pink Pontoon

The Pink Pontoon is finished!!! YAY!!!! Starting soon I will be selling hot dogs and hamburgers on the CA Delta.


Cruising by the bank I glanced over and saw this...a squirrel balancing on a stick. I'm not so concerned about how he did it, but more importantly WHY was he doing it?

Monday, April 16, 2012


When a group of teenagers walk into the restaurant everyone hopes they don't get sat in their section. They are difficult customers need lots of water refills, need to know the price of everything with tax, half of them don't eat they just take up tables and watch their friends eat and lastly they don't tip. These kids proved me wrong...they did tip.

I'll Show You

If you don't want to take me fishing I'll poop on your side of the dock! Hope you don't step in it when you get off your boats A holes! - Gracie

Don't Leave Me

The weather has been crap lately. Duane, Chris and Travis still have to pre-fish for the FLW Delta though. Unfortunately they weather is too bad for Gracie to go. She stood outside crying all day, wishing they took her with them.
