~7 In 7: Day 8

~Originally posted 13 Nov 2017~

You didn’t REALLY think that I was going to do this without giving you a little sumfin sumfin on the side (I swear I don’t talk like that in “real life”) did ya? Here are the originals and a brief description… I do what I want!

Day 1 ~ I took my son to a skating rink a couple days before I was nominated for this challenge. Pretty cool place, kind of off the beaten path. They had a rock wall and we both got to climb, kinda makes me want to revisit my rock climbing post




Day 2 ~ Do you remember the first thing that you bought for your current home that added a little, um, je ne sais quoi to your place? Well this was mine.

Day 3 ~ In order to upgrade my Wrecker license I had to prove that I could rig for tow… Obviously requiring a selfie.

Day 4 ~ The view from our hotel during what the boys and I call “Best Weekend Ever”… We opened the sliding door and a pack of seagulls flew away, all but one. This is as far as any of us made it onto the balcony, we didn’t want any parts of that seagull.


Day 5 ~ In Iraq, I got pulled off of the road in the middle of building a VCP so that I could be force-fed this meal. I’ve NEVER had food look and smell so bad but taste so good, it was amazing… We went back for seconds. I*, not “we”… I want back for seconds.


Day 6 ~ On a scale from 1-10, how single am I? Spinal Tap… And if you get the reference we should be dating!


Day 7 ~ I keep forgetting to post about Marine Week. One of my workations this year was Marine Week Detroit, where I got free tickets for a Tigers game, I think the seats were ok.



Until next time, break the rules.


P.S. Thank you again Giggles! I may, or may not, do a full post later on for each of these… I haven’t decided yet.

P.P.S. I’ve found a way around using unoriginal photos! Searching for and tracking down the artist is a PAIN. So, enter Bitmoji!

    1. Couldn’t have done it without you… I just wish that I had a better explanation for the food post, do you know the name of the Ethiopian dish that you were thinking of?

      The bread was injera..it’s kind of like this stretchy flat bread? I know that’s a horrible description haha. And the rest was just meat and vegetables with different spices and sauces.


    3. Oh, it doesn’t sound all that similar actually lol but I hope that dish was as great as this one was… I hope that it smelled better too

      Oh it all smelled amazing. Once, the lady brought enough for all the managers to eat at work and no one would eat it cos it looks different. They called me in cos they know I had eaten some before and I’m like stuffing my face making Homer Simpson noises and they are all “does it really taste good?” Scaredy cats! They didn’t touch any of it.

    5. Lol that’s great. No-one wanted to eat this either, hence me getting forced to take a break when there were plenty of people around that could have eaten in my place. And the look on their faces when I went back for seconds was priceless haha
