The sun is shining, the birds are singing.....

and as of 5:27 pm on Friday October 5, 2012 the wife and I own our home. It's a modest two bedroom ranch, nothing fancy but, it's home and it's ours. Made the first payment on August 2, 1985.

Congratulations!!! It's a great feeling not to be burdened by mortgage payments. What are your plans for the extra cash you'll have each month?

The Bengals are 3-1, and the Reds are in the playoffs, and you're worried about your silly mortgage? Get your priorities straight, Man!

Seriously, nice going.

I think we are going to just bank it for a while. My sons in his first year of law school so some of it will go to help him out and we should put a new roof on this sucker since we plan to stay here long while. As far as the Reds and Bengals, I will get more excited when one of them ever actually wins a playoff game.

After a couple decades, what's 10 more hours?

I was at the AFC championship game and game 6 to win the pennant in 1990; it can happen! I was in Jax for the game last weekend; I was shocked by the call from Lewis for the fake punt, but it wasn't like they needed it. The top four cornerbacks out and they still won easily; the pass rush rarely let Gabbert get a look, anyway. (Hall and Clements are probable tomorrow).

Beat the rush and get excited now. I'll bet Cueto goes 8 and gets the win tonight, save for Chapman.
