Everybody Loves Bacon

They say everybody loves bacon.

Never one to take conventional wisdom at face value, I decided this year was the year we needed to test that theory.  Actually, I decided about a month ago that I needed to find a different costume this year than the one I had planned (although my original one would have been almost as awesome).  For those of you who have followed The Paul Gillespie Experience for some time you’ll recall last year’s party was Continue reading Everybody Loves Bacon

Happy (And Safe) Independence Day!

This is still one of my all-time favorite pictures.  I hope the shop owner appreciated the humor of it as much as I did.  Visual puns are some of the best things out there.

While you’re reading this I’m probably either setting up an epic tank battle with a buddy and his family, cooking (or eating) some jalapeño and cheddar stuffed brats or pondering how much sunscreen is enough to protect my head from burning now that I lack the hair to handle that job.  But no matter what I’m planning on enjoying my Independence Day to the max, and I hope you are to.

Keep safe, thank the men and women who keep us free and have a great Fourth of July!

Memorial Day

God bless you and your families this Memorial Day.

Today was a great day.  Got some stuff done around the house (should be on the market next week!), went to the zoo with the kiddos (had an absolute BLAST) and got some stuff done for the business.  Oh, yeah – and got the framework for my costume built.  Continue reading Today!
