- I cannot
believe I'm adding this entry to March when I'm trying
desperately to not waste my 100 entries a year on
silly shit since there's SO much going
- ...but Cameron
turned this into a Journey worthy video, so here we
are. This kid may be stealing the show quite often in
the near future. Something to consider.
- So ever since I
made the Golf Hard hole there has been a branch on the
- The branch had
grown THROUGH the metal safety wire above the black
tube and it just wasn't moving. I called the
city, they blamed the Department of Water and Power,
I called DWP repeatedly for months: nada. I mean,
that's a HEAVY branch - it was bowing down the entire
- The real problem
is, I'm cleaning up leaves constantly. From a dead
tree. The only goddamned good thing about taking a
tree drown is the lack of leaves. NOPE. The problem
with me taking it down is not just the fact that it's
a wire... it's not actually over my property. So even
standing on the roof of The GolfKon bar requires me
hanging a bit OVER the wall. Every movement is just
asking for you to fall which is incredibly over 13
feet since golfkon is raised a bit to begin with. Just
a whole lot of fuck no...
- ...but then
I got the idea to screw a blade onto a 10 foot
2x4. It worked! I was able to painstakingly saw
throught the main part and was left with the tiniest
of branches... but at least.
- ...but, yeah. I'm
not particularly OCD? But that shit right there. I
couldn't NOT see it. I'd walk outside and BOOM. I
tried for a full day to let it be and it just wasn't
happening. I had to try and somehow cut that branch
off even though it had grown AROUND the safety wire.
Enter, the video:
- So, so, so
satisfying. And Cam saying "How ya doin' up there?"
will never not be hilarious to me. As parents you have
moments where your kids say shit that is seemingly
beyond their years. And then your entire concept of
them shifts immediately. He's not a toddler, he's now
a kid. It happens like that. And THAT is why this is a
Joruney entry and video. Cam is a kid.
- Oh and
I fucking got that damn branch off and didn't
kill myself. FUCK YEAH.
- Goodbye March.
Jesus you were long.
