12 of 12

So I'm doing my 65th 12 of 12

Normally it is 12 pictures taken on the 12th of the month. Since I only post once per day, you get my images the following day. All pictures taken with my iPhone. Click images to enlarge, if you choose.

Created by Chad Darnell and picked up from, what I can tell, any number of random bloggers who then link back to him and vice versa. Chad is no longer doing this, nor is successor coordinating the linking of other 12 of 12'ers anymore. Now it's just Erik (and sometimes Jim) and myself - that I know of. 

I still continue to do this, because of all my consistent post topics, I actually like this one the most.

 06:10.  Had to touch up the facial hair a little bit. 

 06:25.  Irrigation system is functional. As seen while taking out the garbage for trash day.
Our summer has been so rainy, we didn't even turn on the sprinkler system until two weeks ago. 

08:15. Soldier down!  Medic!!  MEDIC!!!!!

As seen on a.m. walk with Petey....who is clearly no St. Bernard.

11:50. I don't drink coffee, but 710 does. And he was out. 

I find it is in my best interest that he gets his morning caffeine. 

12:25.  Taco Tuesday Wednesday.

Repurposing a previous night's dinner into taco lunch.

12:50.  Starting the dishwasher. 

16:50.  Off to go on Petey's afternoon walk - I always forget about this bad boy.

I know I can wait until colder weather to take it down but it is growing - and while I would loathe wasp stings, I'd hate for Petey to be stung when he goes out there to do his business.

17:30.  Applying first coat of paint to the basement floor. 

17:32.  Paint Penis. 

Big sac, little head.   ....yes, I'm 12. 

18:20.  Sophie holding my arm between grooming sessions for my hand. 

Who am I to stop her? 

19:05.  Post painting shower. 

Beard is way trimmed back. Stache is most certainly not. 
I just realized I'm one cheek shave away from being the Village People leather man

20:00.  A late-ish dinner. 

Chicken, peppers & broccoli 

....and your Baker's Dozen......

22:10.  Technically, I did bake the cookies.  

The ice cream came out of a container.

"I find it is in my best interest that he gets his morning caffeine." - yes; my spouse feels the same way about me. without my morning "happy juice" I am a bitch on wheels (not that I ain't a bitch all the time, mind you).

"I always forget about this bad boy." - ew ew ew, UGLY! perhaps hire a professional remover? I would not want you to get stung either.

"Paint Penis." - bwhahahahahaha! (yes, I am 12 also) did you paint over it or leave it?

"the VP leather guy" - yeah, but I always liked the cowboy best.

and of course the furkids are adorable as always.

I kinda got a "Really, Dad?" vibe from the Sophie picture as pertains to the penis picture.

It's been so dry here that I haven't turned my sprinkler system on in at least six months. Due to restrictions I only water by hand twice a week now. Our water consumption is down 40%. Half dead lawns are now the norm around here, they are a lot easier to mow.
I was always a construction worker fan.

Living with a coffee drinker when one doesn't drink coffee must have its moments of tensions and humor.

I think you could pull off the Village People. Maybe you need to wrangle up the rest of the bunch and go as a group for Halloween. ;-)
