I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

My favourite month by far… blogged about it 3 years ago – July – that year was a particularly good one! Same goes for this year, July 2015 (hell they’ve all been great – ain’t judging Julys, lol)! It’s been 2 long months since my bank account sniffed a deposit, while busily pissing withdrawals. Tomorrow… the buck stops here! Begins w/a bang (fireworks?)… OhCanadaDay, followed by the 2nd, 3rd, 10th, and 16th!! That’s five fecking direct deposit paydays in half a month?! Not to mention another cool day tossed into the mix, making it an even half-dozen great days to kick off the month of all months! Lots more great/personal stuff from a lifetime ago… I still remember, and reflect! C’mon, admit it… y’all LOVE July!!

Happy Beaver Day!!

Know I’m late posting but I REFUSED to easily swipe a Canadian flag off the internet and blog. Nope, not me … Canada’s birthday, the least I could do is put a bit of effort for the country I love, land of the free – home of the brave … er wait a minute wrong anthem, lol!! Just sayin’ ’cause it applies to us as well … a country with abounding civil liberties … and we ain’t a bunch of chickenshits either, lol!! Took this iPhone pic out doing the dumpster run ridding the house of rubbish. And while staring straight into the sun no less … not too shabby danistrulytheman … not too shabby … Happy Canada Day y’all!! 🙂



… my favourite month!! If there’s such a thing picking one over the other eleven. It’s perfect, it’s sublime … typically the hottest month + it goes the distance in duration, giving us 31 glorious days, the most allotted in a month (’cause that’s the way we’ve been keeping track of things/time for hundreds of years on this tiny speck of interstellar dust I call home, lol) of sun, fun, beer, beach, bikinis, BBQ and beer (oops, ya caught me double-dipping, lol). June is good, but a wee bit early AND plenty unpredictable … and August is good as well, till you near the end and slowly start feeling summer slipping away. But not my July … it starts with a BANG right outta the gate – Happy Birthday CanadaWOOHOO!!  And before the celebrations have a chance to subside … BANG again – Independence Day to my neighbours south … Happy 4th y’all!! Four days in and it’s been non-stop partying … and 10 days later let’s raise a glass of champagne and toast Bastille Day, and if you weren’t aware and didn’t commemorate the occasion, well mon ami now you do (know) … and I HOPE you do (celebrate) … commemorate away, lol!! July has always been a month long celebration for me, SO many school friend’s birthdays … I still recall a few names and the days … Diana-13, Garry-14, Randy-15, Chris-17 … and mine thrown somewhere into the mix, just ain’t sayin’ when (and we all shared the same birth year making it even more special) … and through the years many new friends have joined, too many to name. July has always been a month long celebration for me (and can pinpoint it further, specifically the middle of the month … from the 10th – 20th). A few other tidbits …this year’s Wimbledon famed fortnight concludes on the 8th, and the opening ceremonies for the 2012 London Olympics are on the 27th (the excitement never ends, lol). And who could forget the boys of summer? Not I. Always look forward to the home run derby, the All-Star Game (July 10), the family atmosphere/festivities. And last but not least, this year I have a personal celebration falling on the 30th … zees lips are zipped, lol!! What a way to finish!!

I know I’m posting prematurely … wanna give a couple days lead in, allowing it to marinate …

Uhmmm? Probably forgetting a few important days/occasions … can always comment later if I remember. Better yet  … anyone think of anything I’ve omitted (y’all have fingers and a keyboard … least I hope ya do, lol) … chime in!! 😉
