Oh Those Crazy Olympics

We are all into the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea.  It’s so much fun since we are from all over the world.

Mr. Nigel Murray being British of course was rooting for his fellow Brits in Curling.  We all love Curling!

Mr. Nigel Murray’s team wasn’t victorious but we all cheered for them.  It was a good match.

Homie was sad that Mr. Nigel Murray was sad.   In the end USA (Homie’s home team) won the day and moved forward 🙂

Mick has been staying up very late to watch these matches.  Hockey, Bobsledding or Curling he’s out there chanting USA USA USA

It’s been a wild ride but USA Men’s Curling is moving on to the medal round!  Congratulations Boys!


Going to The Beach

This weekend we went with the Roomies to the Beach.

Gru has put the word out that all off this is his…you may borrow his beach for a fee.

It was too cold to go down to the water but after the Nor’easter we got a week ago Homie was shocked that the beach looked this good.

Jeff the Clone declared this beach superior to his visit to Tatooine.  That was like Death Valley.  No fun!

Jeff the Clone has decided this is his new house.  Until Gru explained that it is on his beach, thus, it his domain.

Jimmy and Eddie discuss why they’ve been angry that none of their travels have been included on the blog.  These guys are super famous and stuff.

Don’t you people know who we are!  We are the drunk guys who gave you the California Trip of 2012!!!!

Oh Yay…It Snowed

So in our neighborhood we got 22.4″ of snow from Jonas.  I still think it’s stupid they name the storms.  Now nobody will want a friend named Jonas because that a-hole dropped 2-3′ of snow on the east coast!

I think that Homie needs a smaller shovel.  It do give him props for giving it a try though 😉

I was Bjorn of the mountain.  Really there were mountains of snow everywhere after the plows came through.  Crazy stuff this Nor’easter business.

We decided to have some fun sliding down the hill.  It would be sledding if someone remembered to bring the sled.  I’m not pointing fingers but you’ll recognize him from his thumbs up…BUDDY!

Homie says he enjoys snow so much more now than when he was a garden gnome/elf.  He’s a big fan of keeping dry and being warm.  We all survived and the next storm to come our way has been changed to a passing rain shower so no more shoveling for a bit.  YAY!!!

Bjorn Maelstrom Visits Ohio – A Christmas Story House

Bjorn has now visited 19 of the 50 States in the USA.  He’s working hard to make it all 50.  This trip was to Ohio.  Specifically the Cleveland area of Ohio.  We started off with a trip to ‘A Christmas Story House’.


It was a lot of fun!  The house was staged just like the movie…right down to the Lifeboy Soap in the bathroom!


Bjorn was running around the house with the Red Ryder BB gun.  It was funny.  I kept telling him to be careful not to ‘shoot his eye out’.


It was an awesome trip.  Bjorn told the Roomie to give it 5 circles on Trip Advisor!

Homie the Vacation Minion!

SAM_4018 (400x300)I love to sight see more than my roommates.  I went with Bantley to the Lighthouse at Hereford.  It was really neat.  The gardens were beautiful.  The views from the top of the lighthouse were amazing and the view of the ocean was perfect!

When we were in Cape May we went to see the Firehouse.  It’s a free exhibit (so you know I’m in).  Lots of history there.  Also the Roomie was thrilled there was a cut out fireman to stick her face in.  She’s a weirdo.

Although, when we went to the Aviation Museum I did stick my face in the astronaut.  So many cool things this summer.  I wonder what’s going on this fall!

A Taste of Summer

We got to go to the beach last weekend which we’ve been sorely lacking this year.  It was cloudy and windy but you know what…It was AWESOME!


It was Bantley’s first trip to the beach.  It was smiling the whole time.



Bjorn Loves the beach and can’t wait to get back there.  Even though there are seagulls.


I was trying to be creative with the Lifeguards in this picture.  I’m wild like that!

We all can’t wait to go back!  See you soon Ocean!

Garden Festival Time!

The CH Garden Festival was in full swing yesterday even though it rained.  It was still a good day!

IMG_0234 (400x300)

Real flowers against art = Awesomeness!

IMG_0244 (300x400)

The Roomies bought some new Fairy Houses for the multitudes that have gathered at our house.  J is all like “the more the merrier” but that’s because she doesn’t have to share a bathroom with the merrier.  I’m just grumpy today.

Bjorn digging the stroll.

Ingrid had a blast.  This was her first Garden Festival.  She enjoyed the May pole Dancers the most.  She said it really reminded her of visiting Teddy in Germany in the Spring 🙂

The crowds eventually showed up and the weather cleared up and we went on to your next activity.  It was a good day 🙂
