Happy 4th of July! (And My Birthday!)

Today is my one hundred and eleventh 31st birthday!

Alas, thirty one years is far too short a time to live among such excellent and admirable hobbits bloggers.  I don't know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.

This is honestly what I am doing right now
I'm taking today just to recharge my battery. Sleep in later than 6am and not do anything. My wife picked me up Settlers of Catan

Anyone know or want to play it with us? 3+ players and our cat and daughter aren't able yet! hah

And with that, I really have nothing to blog about nor should I spend my precious holiday hours making something up! So with that....
