"Empty Nest” Weekend

Technically, we’re not empty nesters, we're just adjusting to our son being away at college. However, I was curious what the first weekend would bring us. It was pretty much the same as any other weekend. The weekend's highlights...

  1. Coffee and read the paper
  2. Breakfast
  3. Coffee
  4. Coffee
  5. Mow the lawn
  6. Exercise
  7. Lunch
  8. Clean guns
  9. Movie date with Colleen! (Okay, that’s different — first one in 19 years)
  10. Dinner
  11. Netflix and Hopsecutioner IPA
  1. Coffee
  2. Breakfast
  3. Coffee
  4. Mass
  5. Coffee (I’m sensing a pattern.)
  6. Dry fire practice
  7. Phone call with son!
  8. Mid-afternoon brunch and award winning Rocko’s Milk Stout at Spencer Devon Brewery (More to come on that.)
  9. Another Netflix movie
In other words, just old married folk.  Wouldn’t have it any other way.


  1. Have you established your "naked room" like Terry Bradshaw in the movie "Failure to Launch"? hahaha
    Maybe we really don't want to know.

    1. One should never ask a question unless they are prepared for the answer. ;-)
