A Macabre Weekend…

I’m running short on time this morning but wanted to get a post up prior to going to work. I mentioned a little while earlier that I had a pretty busy weekend. It wasn’t so much busy as it was just staying away from the computer and doing other stuff.

I posted a bit about the barbecue Thursday night. We actually got to bed at a decent time, prior to midnight, so I didn’t sleep to terribly late on Friday. Originally I was going to take Pete to Six Flags but decided to save that trip for another day since the wife had to leave somewhat early to go see the Braves play. The girls made sure to watch and look for her on TV 🙂 There was actually a reasonable chance since they were sitting behind home plate. On at least two occasions they would run in and tell me they saw their mom. Who knows, maybe they did…

Prior to the evening though we took the girls to the movies. Going to the movie theater just isn’t something that’s a high priority on my list. It is prohibitively expensive and between tickets, drinks and snacks you can just about go to the fucking amusement park. There are maybe one or two movies a year that I am willing to spend money on. The rest of the time there’s Netflix. I would rather wait for the DVD release than waste money at the theater. That having been said, Pete and I went to see the Dark Knight and the wife took RePete to see Space Chimps. I think that I most likely got the better end of the deal on that one…

Saturday I worked briefly in the yard and then just hung with the wife. We sat down and watched Sweeney Todd on DVD and then the Sixth Sense on cable. Talk about creepy movie weekend…I was pleasantly surprised at Sweeney Todd. Not that I would like a musical, I knew that. It was more the fact that Johnny Depp and musical just don’t go together. Pretty good movie though…

Yesterday I spend planting some more trees and stuff and then basically did nothing. I intended to at least write a bit but don’t think I managed to accomplish a damn thing. Should have gone to the gym after work. I do plan on going today though. My store manager in Temple is on vacation for the next ten days and that’s pretty much where I’ll be living for the next week and a half. Another week with one day off. What a pisser. It will give me the chance to go work out in the afternoons though since the gym is right behind my restaurant.

Hopefully I will have something interesting to post for Odd Shots Monday before the day is out. I always carry my camera so there is no telling what will come up…

  • Have then check the fathers home with dogs inside and outside. The father was more nervous when Greata interviewed him at his own home. I think he not only knows but helped to hide the body at his home. I know they searched for articles inside, but they need dogs to search the perimeter.

  • I think this is a case of WMD’s send in the 82nd airborne,after all they went into Iraq with less,and if that doesn’t work how about just getting the police to do their job? There are 3 witness’s in custody and evidently they are not being asked the right questions or questioned in the right manner. This is a ugly incident and my heart goes out for her parents for any parent would be sick. Every minute is torture when a loved one is gone,these authorities in Aruba need to be read the “riot act”

  • Is there a chance that a satellite would have picked up Natalie and Joran
    on the beach that night? If so, a lot
    may have been seen as to what happened.

  • I know alot has happened w/the media recently about the bombings in London, but let us not forget this young American girl who has been missing for so long, and the Dutch Government has not done all they could to help find her. I think all the suspects have had a hand or know something about Natalie’s disappearance, and not enough is being done by them to help find her. If it had been one of their children to go missing in the US I know they would be yelling for the US Officials to find out about it.

  • THEY ARE TEENAGERS! PICK THE OTHER TWO UP AGAIN. PUT THE PRESSURE ON THEM. LIE TO THEM. TURN THEM AGAINST EACH OTHER . WHATEVER IT TAKES. THIS SHOULD BE EASY FOR INVESTIGATORS IF THEY REALLY WANTED TO FIND THE TRUTH. I DONT BELIEVE ARUBA OFFICIALS ARE DOING THEIR JOB. MAYBE THEY RESENT THE FACT THAT BIG, MEAN USA WANTS TO BRING DOWN ONE OF THEIR BOYS EVEN IF HE IS GUILTY AS SHIT. TIM-DETROIT

  • That was a bit freaky. The crunchy/squishy sound made me wince each time one hit the basement floor. Makes me think twice about meat pies now…
