Yesterday we celebrated the " day at the docks" down at our work sight ,..it's a huge event which'll draw in aprox 20-30,000 people for the day,... There's fishing pens set up or the kids, numerous boat rides from our sport fishing fleet, seminars ,tackle representatives from all the biggies etc,..you get the idea.
For some reason, I'm always in charge of the information booth,.its kind of fun to get out of the shop and mingle with the folks ,we also hand out doggie bones to all the dogs that come on by just to let them know they're welcome too
This year the " day at the docks" landed on my 61st birthday,... Wow,! After my shift , my co worker Eric,my boss Robert and I walked over to our usual Sunday afternoon pizzeria to mingle with the girls and have a couple of beers,.. When we got to our usual table there was a large note taped to our table wishing me a happy birthday with a couple of frothy ones already poured,..one of my fishing buddy's call it in because she couldn't make it down that day but wanted us to have one on her.,,my girl friend Laura met us there and we had a blast,, the girls seem to really like us and comp'd us the whole bill...( big tip tho !!) long story short ,..it was a lonnnnnnng day and a long nite and ol'Dary 's moving a little slower this morning.,especially after my dog scruffy decided that we should go on a three mile walk at 4:30 am this morning to celebrate the occasion.
Today ,being Monday is my normal day for the pwc and aquarium clean up,... I'm sure it's going to take just a little longer to get organized and motivated enough to accomplish this event,...wish me luck the old man is rolling up his sleeves and away we go ....

Happy belated birthday, Dary! Sounds like you had a great one. I'm 58 so not far behind you. Sorry I missed your day. Just bought a 265 off CL and trying to figure out what to do with it now that its in my garage. Not very good with plumbing but will sort it out. Unfortunately lost the fish I bought it for two days later. . But glad you had a wonderful birthday!

Thank you ,....wow a 265 ( gallons)?) There 's so much you can do with something that size,...sometimes I really wish I had a bigger tank but on the other hand a 135 gal is big enough for me to handle with all the extra stuff going on in life right now,.... Plumbing is actually one of the fun parts when setting up a new tank,...just take your time ,think everything out very carefully , cut everything just once and always go bigger than you think you need.,...enjoy the build !!!!

The local temperature out here in inland San Diego is approaching the mid 90's today with promises of tacking on another ten degrees tomorrow ,...ouch!!!!! Thank God that I bought a chiller last year ., it's times like these that you really appreciate a couple of purchases that you've made..an ATO and the chiller,IMO two the best investments a reefer can make if you live in sections that are notorious for high temperatures. ( of course air conditioning is great also if you run it 24-7 )
On a personal note ,..yesterday was spent at the hospital with my gf while she underwent a hernia operation,..the whole endeavor took longer than expected due to some sinus,congestion related problems,...she's home now,...not happy but home.
I also spent in excess of a $1000 this week on my van for struts etc,..so it looks like it'll be awhile before I add anything else to the aquarium,.... other than that all's well.
