A blessed Sabbath, Gerbil Nation! It’s cooler this morning, so hopefully it won’t be so hot this afternoon.

Later today, my MIL will join Mrs. Paddy, Teh Older, and I on a leisurely cruise around our local lake -- an annual tradition that was first in commemoration and now is in memory of the birthday of my father and my FIL (they shared the same birthday).

Have fun on the water, Paddy.

Off to the bar to watch the Raiders kick some Indy butt. For all the years I’ve been on teh Wheel, my team has sucked. It’s not fair. I want to gloat some here. Sniff. So maybe, sniff, this year is the year.

Post-chocolate croissant greetings from humid and Happy Larryville, GN!

Paddy --

Have a lurvely cruise; hope most of the memories are sweet ones.

Sven --

Enjoy the (presumed) keister-kicking of the Colts; may you have reason to gloat later today.

Finished the arrangement of “Sharp Dressed Man” a few minutes ago; must now decide on teh next classic tune to fold, spindle and/or mutilate. 😉

Living in this region of the country, I feel obliged to do some iconic southern rock song along the way. Since I did “Sweet Home Alabama” for the L.A. band -- and don’t wish to repeat myself -- I’m leaning toward “Ramblin’ Man” or Little Feat’s “Oh, Atlanta”.

Can you arrange “Foggy Mountain Breakdown” for horns?

Well it was not to be, but the Raiders played a decent game. Some mistakes out of Pryor, but that’s just inexperience, not lack of talent or heart. Receivers were actually catching the ball. The defense gave up some big plays, but put good pressure on Luck and got I think 3 sacks. The usual dismal performance out of Darren McFadden at RB; I can see where this is going: he’ll play 3-4 more C- games and then break one open and then get injured and be done for the season.

So a loss, but the best looking season opener I’ve seen from this team in years.

‘Oh Atlanta’ aint a bad song.

I’m sitting out on the upper patio enjoying dusk -- my favorite time of day. The sun has set and now everything is bathed in a pink-blue light.

I just finished installing the first of two fixed full-length side panels in the sunroom. I’m in a race with ol’ man winter to get everything done. All of the outside trim needs to be replaced or painted. I’ve decided to replace with cellular PVC, ’cause I’m too cheap to spend 5-7K on painting that, in this climate, will only last about 8-10 years.

I still have to install the already purchased last year brake rotors, calipers and pads on the van.

And God knows what else.

So Jerrie is driving around without rotors? And pads? And calipers? Is he using pedestrians as braking devices? If so, I hope he spends more time driving around the Capitol and certain parts of Pennsylvania Ave. -- just sayin’.
