I'm in Rockford IL, helping my friend Ervin organize some paperwork for his business. A nice ride down, aside from near constant rain.
Went to WalMart with Erv and found something Lisa & I have been looking for (w/out luck) back in Milwaukee. Then we grilled out and enjoyed a dinner of steak, potato, mushroom/onion, corn and dinner rolls. Time to get cracking again on that paperwork.
Last years #1 MLB draft pick Stephen Strasburg did just fine in his debut. He gave up four hits in seven innings, gave up two runs, and struck out *14* while notching his first win. Yikes. Quite impressive.
You know Erv really needed help with his office if he sat there quietly while I sang along to NKOTB as I typed. Currently playing - Call it What You Want.

I believe it is my right as a man to snatch as many toppings from a frozen pizza as I like before it enters the oven. If you object to this, get yer own pie.
