Hump Day Rule 5 - Cocoa Beach

I'm back in Cocoa Beach for a couple days.
They launched a Saturn V from the cape last night, that was totally fuckin' awesome.

It's started already. I saw a passel of Ontario license plates around here yesterday.

It Was Coolio

I swear it was...

Mrs B and I were standing outside the back door of the hotel smoking.

MSgt B - Look! It's Coolio!
                Yeah. I started singing and gyrating. I got moves.

Mrs B - Nope. Not Coolio.

MSgt B - What do you mean not Coolio? I swear that was him, dude. I'd recognize that guy anywhere.

Mrs B - If it was Coolio, he would have gotten into the Escalade, not the Hyundai.

MSgt B - Ah! Very good...I should pay more attention.

Mrs B - So should he...he forgot to get his beer off the roof of his car before he drove away.

No shit. Dude drove right out of the parking lot with a half-finished beer on top of his car. Right over the driver's seat.

Ripple Creek Security

I bought a Ripple Creek Security T-shirt from Mike last week.

Totally fuckin' awesome. I decided to wear it for our drive down to Florida.
So...on the way down to Jacksonville on Sunday, Mrs B and I stopped in a Waffle House in Albany, GA for a late lunch.

This huge freak of nature comes over and sits next to us at the counter....seriously, the guy was a giant. He had shoulders that kinda sloped upwards into a shaved-skull appendage that someone had crudely pasted a face onto...and neck tats.
Turns out he was very interested in working as a personal security professional. Wanted to share all his qualifications with me over lunch.

I told him to go ahead and apply online, and in the part where it asks you how you heard about this company, put in that you met Alex.

What the hell else was I supposed to do?

Avoid arguing with the guy with prison tats.

Sunday morning sleep-in #103


Mrs B has decided to make the Florida run with me this week.

Getting on the road early. (So to speak)

Is that a 22/45 or a Mk III? Wish I could see the grip angle better...

Saturday Morning Coffee #123


Made it back home last night, although I didn't roll in until eight or so.
I had to make the push so I can have one whole day here before I have to roll out for JAX Sunday.

I had the fried catfish special at the Creek Bank Restaurant* for lunch yesterday. That's the first time I've had it served whole like that.
My techs down in that area tell me that's the only right way to eat catfish. They clean it and skin it, then drop it in the fryer. I made them demonstrate before I believed that you could eat the fins, and they were actually quite good.
It's almost impossible to eat them with a fork. You just pick up the damn fish and go at it like corn-on-the-cob. When you're done, you're holding a cartoonish set of fish bones with a little bit of tail on one end.

I'll be going back.

* - Funny that the only bad review at the link is someone crying "ZOMG! People were smoking in there! Even my waitress!" 
Ha Ha Ha...suck it, you nanny-state liberal weenie! And they don't have fucking Wi-Fi either! Go find yourself a Panera Bread!

Bad Humor

Ended up on the road for 9 hours yesterday. Ended up in Mobile. Now I'm looking forward to a nice long day in the sun and humidity.
