A Good Weekend

This last weekend I traveled North to visit my parents. My mom’s birthday is coming up, so this was a good time to visit. I had not seen my parents since mid-August when the three of us went to Wisconsin for a long weekend.

Since I am not doing anything pressing during the day, I decided to go up Thursday afternoon and came back last night. I had a darn-tooten good time.

Thursday, we stayed in, had some beers, and caught up.

I have some pretty awesome connections in the dental industry. I also lack dental insurance. On Friday, I was privileged to get a free checkup.

Friday night, my parents were having some friends over for a bonfire and bratwursts. Yumm yumm yumm. There is nothing like 10 foot flames and brats to make a guy happy. Way too much whiskey too.

Saturday, we headed over to Puyallup, WA for Oktoberfest NW for some beer, brats, and Polka dancing (for the parents). My parents have a routine I found out. It goes as follows: dance a Polka, get a drink of beer between songs, and repeat as needed. I think this was my sixth Oktoberfest of the season.

All in all, a good weekend. My dad only told me to get a job about 18 times – that is low for him.

    That’s a good time for you to relax after worked hard. I guessed that you are very happy when see your parents, your sister and join in your mom’s birthday, great! Sometimes, when I don’t feel well, get bored, need to quiet place to think …. I wanna go somewhere to self-relax – that’s just my opinion.
    Anyway, good luck to you.
