Hello. I hope you had a nice long weekend. How was my weekend? Friday night Cara and I saw Kings of Leon at MSG!
I love Kings of Leon! They put on a good show. Gary Clark Jr. was the opening act. We’ve been wanting to see him for a while. We got there, we thought, kind of early. But he was already on song 3 of a 5-song set. Ha ha. Oh well, what we heard, we really liked.
Before the show we had a nice dinner at a place called, Delmonico’s Kitchen. It was good! I ordered steak frites. In this photo I’m pretending I got burned by my mini fry basket:
Classic me, ha ha.
Saturday we drove out east and ended up right in the middle of a snow storm. Perfect.
We didn’t have any food so we drove to dinner on unplowed roads. It was awesome. I drove slowly and carefully. Our meal was fantastic! But then we had to drive back. The roads were still unplowed! Ha ha. I got stuck in a driveway but had a shovel and some salt. No problem. This is what my car looked like when we got back:
I got stuck on the driver’s side. It was a fun, memorable evening/weekend.
Have a great day!
Hey, if you’re a fan of made-up holidays, Happy Valentine’s Day! Ha ha.
A lot of people have been writing in and asking for an update on Old Snowy (my snowblower I found in the trash). OK, only one person asked for an update. Thanks for caring, James Kelly. It has been doing great!
Since I strained my back, Old Snowy has been there for me. With wet snow, I just take it slow and easy. It’s funny, because of my back, I’ve thought of some crazy snow-removal ideas: Place my barbecue on top of a big snow mound, pour hot water on the snow and my favorite, the snow shovel with propane torch. Old Snowy is probably the best remedy.
How about this snow? Gross. We got about 8 inches yesterday, 6 inches last night and some rain. I couldn’t take it this morning. Instead of shoveling, I used my car to get out. First, I got stuck. Ha ha. Then I had to put down some salt to get traction. On my second attempt, I made it out. My victory was futile because it still needs to be shoveled! Ha ha. BTW, we’re getting 3 more inches tomorrow.
Do you ever get sucked into Discovery Channel’s crime shows? I recently caught one just after it started. The story was very good then I realized, oh crap, this guy just disappeared. There’s not going to be a conclusion to this episode! I hate that! I need closure!
Have a great weekend!
Winter storm Pax is here.
I’m so sick of snow! And I don’t feel like shoveling. I’m thankful my Element is great in the snow. Great car.
A couple of nights ago, when Bob Costas was broadcasting with his crazy eyes, I tweeted this:
Bob Costas is getting worse!
I thought it was pretty funny but only two people retweeted it. So I deleted it and then posted it again at a time when people would be looking for quality Costas material. This time, only one person retweeted, ha ha! I can’t figure Twitter out. Some of the dumbest crap gets retweeted. I think it’s a popularity contest. I only have 215 followers. That may be it, ha ha! Hey, the last person who retweeted my Costas/Mask joke was longtime BobBorden.com reader, Jack Bogdanski. You can follow Jack on Twitter, @bojack54. If you live in Portland, you MUST follow him, ha ha.
Have a great day.
The heavy, wet snow has taken its toll. I may have hurt my back. I’ve been taking it easy but my driveway is closing in on me! Instead of resting, I bought this ice chipper: The new chipper works great but I shouldn’t have gone back out. Ugh!
I was just reading about ‘snow rage.’ People are sick of these storms and are lashing out at the plow drivers. Chill out! I try not to shovel my driveway until the plow leaves the neighborhood. We’re getting more snow after midnight. I may just park facing the street and ram my way out, ha ha. My plastic car would break into 1000 pieces. Be careful out there.
Have a great day.
Did you watch the Olympics last night? NBC introduced a new system to protect guests from Bob Costas’ pink eye, watch:
I guess it didn’t work because tonight Matt Lauer is hosting. Go Team USA!
Have a great day!
