The busy week

This was a busy week for me.

My employer sent me to Las Vegas for a few days which you think would have been a fun filled adventure in between work gigs, but I had to go with Norman, who seems to have a knack to make things more complicated and difficult than they really are.

In short, everything took twice as long as it should have which meant I couldn’t enjoy the strip at all. But I did get a good look at all the crap squished into a few blocks of space. It’s just too crowded for my liking,

I’m from the Mid-west. I like open spaces.

I got back at 1am on Friday and was in bed by 2am and up again at 8am to work on the yard. My wife had to work, and I had to get the yard work done early. She left and I watched the kids til Mid-afternoon. When she got home, I finished the yard including more mowing and dumping out old sand and putting in new.

Then the ol’ lady went to the store for the final party stuff for the girl’s birthday party on Sunday, drinks and what-not. I rented a carnival “bouncer” for the kids and was up until Midnight doing research to make sure I knew where a 20 amp outlet was for the bouncer.

Then the baby was up every hour that night ‘cause she had a fever which is gone now. The guy set up the bouncer and everybody took a nap while I got the cake and ice for drinks, and then the party.

The whole event was a lot of fun for the kids and the girls got so many presents that I had to put them in the basement upwrapped but unopened in a pile. Our plan is to let baby gurl 1 open one present a day. Cleaning up and setting up a place in the basement took ‘til Midnight on Sunday.

Monday morning it was back to work.

This is why the column is so late, busy, busy, busy.

So what I was talking about last week was how we came to be: Humans I mean.

In summary from last week Bobby Franks took the day off work, sneezed on the ground while getting the paper and looked up. That was the last thing he did.

Turns out a meteor was supposed to swing by the planet causing tide risings, earthquakes, weather changes, ect. But the science guys were a little off.

It smacked right into the planet and vaporized it. Everything instantly died. Plants, people, fish, everything.

Well, almost everything.

As things would have it, one thing survived.

COMING NEXT: What happened?!
