The weirdest thing I’ve ever seen in a front yard.

Good Morning.  This post may be a little short because it’s PRIME DAY.  For those of you who live under a rock, Prime Day is an annual event exclusive to Amazon Prime members when we can shop for 36 hours and score some awesome deals.

Prime Day

Okay, the deals aren’t always that great but who doesn’t love a good garage sale, am I right?

On Saturday MacGyver and I went to a plethora of garage sales starting at 9AM and we didn’t finish until after 3PM.  We drove up to Pasco county because both of us are hoping that one of these days we’ll end up smack dab in the middle of a Live PD action shot but so far, nothing.

Anyhow, we managed to get some good things.  Most importantly Hank no longer looks like this:

Hank in UGGZ

I seem to have misplaced my back shoes….on purpose.

He now has 4 Duggs instead of 2, well, until he loses them again.  Maybe I should get him another pair today, I mean it is Amazon Prime day after all.

Sorry, I digress, back to the weekend.  We noticed while driving around this weekend that our GPS in the car was acting a little off.  At one point I couldn’t figure out what road I was on and when I glanced down to see, this was the screen,

GPS Fail

So yeah, that was weird.  Thank God we were on a road.

But it wasn’t the weirdest thing that happened.  No, I have saved the best for last.  This is by far the weirdest thing I have seen in years.  No, I am not kidding, YEARS.  Probably the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen.

As MacGyver and I were driving around he looked over and yelled out for me to hurry and look.  Here is what he saw,

At first I didn’t see it so I pulled over and rolled down the window and took a much closer look.

Casket in yard

I mean, who puts a casket in their front yard?  Is it decorative?  Is someone in it?  Could you not afford the burial plot?  Are you planning for your own funeral?  Is it a future garden?  Do you work in a funeral home?  Did you bring work home with you?  What the hell?  And why?

So many questions?  It was definitely a highlight of our weekend and honestly, we are still trying to figure it out.

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever seen in someone’s front yard?

Deer at the dump

MacGyver and I spent the last 4 days in Nokomis.  Despite the fact that we have worked every single time we’ve gone down for like the last 2 months at least, there are still so many things to do.

Luckily, we are able to find the pleasure among the chores.  Case in point, these guys we saw at the dump while dropping off a load of tree debris.


Look close, those are turkeys

MacGyver spotted the turkeys, but I spotted these:



And I’m not gonna lie, we did manage to go to a few estate sales and garage sales on Friday and Saturday morning.  And on Saturday we actually headed down to Casey Key to check out the bait situation.


There wasn’t a lot of decent sized bait around but the shelling was ah-mazing.  We heard later there were whale sharks near the jetty but we didn’t see them.

Fortunately MacGyver and I have been able to remove a large portion of the tree but we still have some left.  It will have to wait til another day.


Sometime on Saturday evening I started to have some stomach pains and I still have them so I called my doctor this morning to see if I could get an appointment. I told them I had stomach pains and that they had gotten a bit worse over a few days and that I had even been so fatigued that I slept until 9AM on Sunday, which NEVER happens.  I told them I’d like an appointment as soon as possible and they said sure, at 10AM, on August 20th!


So I told them why I was calling again and explained that the pain was getting much worse and lasting longer and they said, ‘if it gets too bad you’d could always go to the ER’, and she followed it up with, ‘of course if it turns out not to be an emergency, your insurance may not pay for the visit.’

So I asked exactly how I could determine whether or not it was an emergency without consulting a doctor at which point she suggested I use the teledoc feature, all I needed to do was to sign up and then schedule, but they could probably get me an appointment within a few weeks.

Are you listening

It’s so exasperating dealing with these people.  I’d almost rather be in pain.  I finally decided that when and if the pain becomes constant or too much to deal with, I’ll just head to the emergency room.  In the meantime, they have me scheduled for that August appointment and I’m on the waiting list in case some one cancels.  I feel so special.

Since I wasn’t feeling well I didn’t run or lift at all on Saturday or Sunday but I did manage to walk 5 miles this morning and lift a little so maybe it’s getting better…we’ll see.

How was your weekend?

Did you do anything fun?

So tired….

I ran or walked every day last week and then Sunday came and I just decided to sleep in.  And even though I slept in I still managed to take a nap that afternoon.  And even after taking a nap in the afternoon I went to bed early.  I’m still tired.

Literally ever time I felt the slightest bit of energy yesterday, it lasted a second, and then disappeared.

This is an accurate representation of me yesterday..

so tired

I did do some lawn work yesterday so it wasn’t totally a loss and on Saturday, MacGyver and I went to some estate sales and I made a trip to Hobby Lobby.  Did you know that they have Halloween and Christmas items in stock and on the shelves already?  I’m not kidding.  I mean, it’s June people, JUNE!  What the hell?

you must be kidding

Oh and also, it’s over 90 degrees outside so it’s hard to even fathom that Fall is only 4 months away so quit already you silly retail establishments.  Besides, I haven’t even taken a summer vacation yet!

And seriously, I would love to start today and begin by taking another nap.

How was your weekend?
