OK, I know some of you might be thinking. Didn’t he just start at his new job? Well, yes, I have only been there for 2.5 months, this is true.
when BP said that he’d like to come out to Stampede (which, by the way, starts today), I said that I would ask if I could take this week off.
I wasn’t sure it would be approved and if it wasn’t, that was OK with me. No problem on the “being off” front. I had to check with some co-workers in other offices to ensure that they would be around and then, low and behold, I am off.
So, BP arrives on Monday, 11:10am MT. He finally sent his flight details.
I am sure it is going to be a busy week. The MLB All-Star game is Wednesday night which means that Tuesday it will be the home run contest. I think we will hit Boston Pizza for the All-Star game. Not sure where we will go for the home run contest – perhaps just stick around the homestead.
I have a mission this morning. I have to clean my Jeep. If I don’t do it, I have to pay someone to do it for me. Either way, it has to be done. I am thinking I may just take it over to the Husky and use their industrial vacuum and also use their pressure washers – that should do it. I will also need some paper towels and Windex like stuff – the nose prints on the windows is quite nuts.
The BDO Stampede Party is this afternoon and evening. Should be a good time. It is just south of Calgary in Okotoks. I don’t have an actual address but I think I’ve found where it is on Google Maps and I’ve gotten the GPS coordinates. At any rate, I have coordinates for somewhere in Okotoks. That’s where we are going.
There will be 3 passengers coming along with me from BDO. Xena, Chewie and another, unnamed person. This is the primary reason that I need to clean the Jeep. The other non-primary reason is because it is REALLY dirty.
So, that is my plan for today. Fairly ambitious, I know. But, as long as I can pull myself away for a bit, it will be done.
Happy Stampeding to all !!!
