Image of Congratulations to the Golden State Warriors

Congratulations to the Golden State Warriors

This Warriors appearance in the NBA finals (together with the Cleveland Cavaliers) will mark the first time in NBA history the same two teams have competed against each other for four consecutive Finals.  The Golden State Warriors are 2 of 3 in the series so far.  The only loss came in the 2016 series when the Cav’s came back (for the only time in NBA history) from a 3-1 deficit to win 4 games to 3.  Either way it (the Finals) goes, NBA history is being made before our eyes.  Go Dubs!!!  Bring the O’Brien Trophy home again, Splash Brothers.  Make it rain!

The following are some before and after photos of our recent work on trying to upgrade the look of our home by painting the back and side fences.  Note: we didn’t actually try to “fix” the fences.  We only painted them.  This is based on what I learned 40+ years ago in Basic Training: “If it grows, trim it.  If it don’t grow and don’t move, paint it.”  I’m including three older “before” photos for comparison…  A lot of work, but we’re happy with the results.  Not bad for a couple of retirees.

Retirement Pie Close Up

On Sunday (10/1/2017), Hil arranged for a family only retirement BBQ / party for me.  It was a complete surprise to me.  Everyone even parked away from the house, so I wouldn’t guess what was up as I drove home from Sunday Mass.  (I will add more photos as they become available…)  A big thank you to my family and (of course) to my wonderful wife!
