OMG, it is Wednesday and I have no post for Friday.  My brain is on hold.  I have a Cranky Opinion post for Saturday that will probably piss a lot of people off.  I should be able to slap together a Stupid Headline Sunday post by…Sunday, and I can always find an old post to re-run on Monday.  By then Mrs. Cranky should do something to give me more material.

In the meantime, I have nothing for Friday.  I could do something on politics, but I am trying like heck to stay away from that.  I could post on my golf playing, but that is of interest to only a very select group…like maybe my brother and then nobody.

I think my mind is just on this weekend.  This weekend is our annual Fraternity reunion weekend.  This tradition began about 18(?) years ago.  It started as a one-day event and now is a Friday night, all day Saturday, and brunch on Sunday event.  The first few years we only talked about the good old days in school and the wives were kind of left out.  The last bunch of years we reminisce about previous reunions and the wives are all part of it.

It is always a great time. 

This year it will be up the road from me in N J at Captain Don’s (formally Squeak’s) estate.  There will be a fun dinner on Friday and most of us will be staying at a nearby hotel…we used to call it “shacking up” seems much more fun calling it that…anyway…

Saturday will be a lot of whatever, maybe golf, maybe shopping, maybe a trip to the city, maybe just hanging out.  Then it will be dinner (barbeque) at Captain Don’s followed by a local band playing music from our college days.  After we will “shack up” (Ooooh) again at the hotel, and finish the next day with brunch at Captain Don’s.

There will be pictures, laughs, memories and maybe a drink or two.  The next couple to host will be announced, (usually the couple who fails to take a step back fast enough) the fraternity flag will be passed and we will have another year’s reunion to look forward to.

Maybe I will take pictures for a post.  

As I said a bunch of posts ago, friends who are old are great, old friends, ones you have known for a long time are great, but old-old friends are the best!


  1. That sounds like a lot of fun Joe. I hope you and Mrs. C have a GREAT time and I look forward to the pics and posts. :)

  2. Sounds like lots of fun ahead for the weekend! I look forward to your Saturday opinion. I'm glad I haven't really established a schedule of when to post but "post at will", therefore I'm never stumped if a deadline to post comes by (except for A/Z but then that is schedule a few months beforehand)



  3. Wowee, you got GREAT post material. Enjoy the weekend, all of it.

  4. I have nothing this week. It is very frustrating.

    Looking forward to your posts. Maybe they'll inspire me enough to get something written, finally.

  5. Sounds like a great tradition. Hope you step back fast enough!

  6. That's a whole lot of nothing Joe ;-) - Sounds like a fun weekend, have a great time.

  7. Here are some ideas for Friday for you.......Sept 30 national awaareness days...

    September 30th
    National Chewing Gum Day
    National Mud Pack Day
    National Hot Mulled Cider Day
    National Gay Men’s HIV/AIDS Awareness Day – Last Friday in September

    Hey...I didn't make them up...someone else did.. Enjoy your weekend.

  8. Your nothing beats my nothing - hands down!
    Have a great time!

  9. Sounds like a fun weekend for sure. I know you'll have a good time.

    Have a fabulous reunion. ☺

  10. Did I overstep with a comment?
    Or did reggolb just drop it in the ether?

  11. Only a blogger as talented as you could get a post out of "nothing."

    1. Your "nothings" beat a lot of blogger's "somethings"!!

  12. Hope you do take pictures and be careful you don't volunteer for next year. Glad the wives are included now. Makes "shacking up" more fun.

  13. Why don't you recreate some of your college-days hijinks, after a few rounds of course, and post the pictures. And none of that "What happens at Captain Don's stays at Captain Don's." That should give us a few hearty laughs. ;)

  14. A reunion sounds like such fun when it's such great people and you all still like each other.

  15. Joe, we have faith in you and shall await with bated (baited?) breath.

  16. Don't take pictures of the "shacking up" unless you're prepared to be called a JERK!

  17. absolutely great write up Joe.agreed that you said about men and women and yes men prefer helpless weak women over a strong women .but yes the definition of STRONG is debatable

  18. You ain't right as my grandpa would say :)


I love comments, especially some of my commenters are funny as heck!

Oh, and don't be shy, Never miss a Cranky Post.
