Totally Tremendous Tuesday!

Last Update: June 28, 2022

Hello everyone here in Wealthy Affiliate!

I hope everyone is doing well! I have been all morning and part of the afternoon answering all of your wonderful well wishes for my birthday! I appreciate that from the bottom of my heart!

As you can see the day was perfect for my birthday, and work held off--no calls other than well-wishers!

I did not do my normal Wealthy Affiliate research today, there was too much going on with the phone and on the computer, though Kitty still came and went regularly.

In the midst of everything, the Blog Dogs even got their meal in, as well!

Then the waiting for Monica began! I must admit, I was a bit antsy, I was hoping that she would not stand me up. The worry ended up being needless!

She called me around 3:30 and wished me a Happy Birthday, and then showed up a short time later, and then we were off!

As we headed up the on ramp to I-70, We were finally on our way!

The drive to Manhattan was quite pleasant, though I could not believe my eyes! To the right, if my eyes were not deceiving me, was Humphrey!

Monica tensed up a little, since we have encountered him on the highway before, and he had run out on the road. This time, we were lucky, he stayed put, and then was gone. The rest of the drive was uneventful!

Soon, we were at Texas Roadhouse!


We went inside, were seated, and ordered!

The service was impeccable and fast!

We ate and talked for about 45 minutes, and then Monica paid for my dinner!

Then we headed to the mall for about an hour! The first order of business was to see about getting her rings resized at Zales.

We also would get them cleaned after they were re-sized. Having dropped them off, we then perused a few stores and had a blast at this candle and Air freshener store that we always used to go to.

They always have things that are 75% off and we smell all the fragrances and make faces at each other at how bad they are! The people probably thought that we were nuts!

After wrapping up at the Mall, we went to Menards, and picked up my Scissor set that was free and found two more solar lights for the deck to match the four that we had gotten the last time we went a few weeks ago.

We were in there for about 30 minutes, and then we decided to go back to Junction City.

We chilled out at the house, and I helped her with some outdoor chores, and then we sat on the deck talking for about an hour and a half, and then she brought me back home!

It was REALLY nice to have had this time with her on my birthday. I even gave her a kiss when she dropped me off.

Right now, I simply could not have asked for more!

After tending to the Blog Dogs and Kitty, I will get this post published and will be on the computer for a while longer, but I must admit, I am drained!

Happy to hear that everything turned out very well in the end Jeffrey and you got to spend some quality time with Monica!

Humphrey on the side of the highway again... well at least he didn't dart out in front of the car this time!!

I can't really tell from the photos but did you go for the 16oz Ft. Worth ribeye or not????🥩

Have a great HUMP day my friend!!

JeffreyBrown Premium Plus
I was quite happy, indeed, Nick!

Yes, I was happy about that too. Had he done so and she hit him, our trip would have easily been cut short!🐫😳

No, I did not. I found something cheaper that I truly liked, in fact, I have a huge doggie bag that I need to reheat! I know her finances are a bit tight right now.

You have a GREAT HUMP day too! Mie is quite relaxing right now. It has been an extended post-Birthday Siesta!

Jessiefido Premium Plus
🤣🤣 Had he done so, it could've been move than just this trip that was cut short Jeff! 🐫

Looking again at the menu, I can't really see a cheaper steak dish there except for the "roadkill" or "steak cabob"!! (Whatever they are I have no idea)!!

Enjoy a relaxing HUMP day my friend, here it is getting a little too warm again for my liking!

JeffreyBrown Premium Plus
I know exactly what you mean, Nick!😳🙄🐫 Crisis was averted though, thankfully!

I had the "RoadKill", with suteed onions, mushrooms, a large portion of steak fries, and stemed carrots and broccoli! Very delicious and quite filling, indeed!

I have enjoyed a totally relaxing Hump day here at the eBay house. I even caught a two-hour nap in between. I've also completed another post on my website and am halfway into another one!

I hope your Hump day is going well!🐫

Jessiefido Premium Plus
The youngster is certainly capable of causing a serious RTA one of these days if he is not careful!🐫

So you had the "RoadKill", some great side dishes there but... what cut of meat was it Jeff?? (Or with that name, what animal)?🤣

Happy to hear you have had a relaxing day and nice work on the website posts!

I will be off to take a looong nap for the night soon my friend!

JeffreyBrown Premium Plus
Don't I know it, Nick!

I'm sure it was beef, Nick!

I had an excellent day today too, my friend!

Enjoy your nap, mine was quite refreshing, indeed!

Jessiefido Premium Plus
🤣🤣 With a name like "Roadkill" one can never be certain Jeff!

Happy to hear that your HUMP day was also excellent!

I haven't had my nap yet, but will be lying down for at least 6 hours sleep very soon!

Take care my friend!

JeffreyBrown Premium Plus
It was likely cubesteak or something, and it was cooked just the way that I like it, Nick!

Hump day was relaxing for ther most part!

Sleep well!

Jessiefido Premium Plus
Very happy to hear that Jeff!🥩

And great news that your HUMP day was relatively relaxing my friend!

JeffreyBrown Premium Plus
It was, indeed, my friend! Of course today is too, but I'm lacking a little motivation, but this too, shall pass!

Jessiefido Premium Plus
I hear you abouf the motivation Jeffrey!

I blame it on the heat personally... which is why my motivation has suddenly increased this evening due to a thunderstorm rolling in and reducing the temps by about 30°F!

And it is still pouring with rain more than 5 hours after it started!

I have definitely been picking up a lot of the slack though!

Don't worry my friend "it shall pass"!!

JeffreyBrown Premium Plus
The heat certainly has a lot to do with it too, Nick! I'm glad you got some T-storms to cool things down a bit.

WOW--that sounds like one of our long rainy days! Don't let the Post Pup float away, my friend! 🐶

I'm glad you are motivated. You are right, it will definitely pass.

Jessiefido Premium Plus
The ongoing thunderstorms have been most welcome here Jeff, and I don't see them going away until tomorrow morning at the earliest!

I will protect my post pup at all costs!

My motivation was great while it lasted... (not long really)!

Not too sure how to answer your last statement here without being offensive my friend!!🤣🤣

JeffreyBrown Premium Plus
I'll bet that they are! We are supposed to get some on Saturday! That will be excellent!

I'm glad to hear that the Post Pup is safe!

Well, sometimes motivation comes in spurts! We must seize those moments and make the best of them!

Whoops, I lest the P off of ass. Fixing it now!

Jessiefido Premium Plus
It has actually been quite pleasant temperature wise here today after the storms... but that will change again from tomorrow!🥵🥵

My post pup is always safe when I'm around and I totally agree about the motivation Jeff!

Nice little quick fix there my friend!🤣🤣

JeffreyBrown Premium Plus
It's been muggy here, but we are expecting some rain tomorrow, so we shall see!

I'm glad to hear the Post Pup is safe!

I always try to catch things, myself, Nick.

Hey, Jeff

You obviously had a great time on your Birthday and an awesome meal, just the way it should be! I'm not seeing a beer in the photo, but I'm sure you made up for it later on. 😊

We have those exact steak knives that we bought from "The Outback" restaurant many years ago.

JeffreyBrown Premium Plus
Hi Frank!

Yes, I had several before her and I got together, and a couple more when I was still over at the house. Since she was buying, I didn't want her to pay too much, and besides, at meals is the only time that I truly get down a lot of water!

Those knives are awesome. I think I have one, maybe two lying around, but I'm not even sure where I got those!

FrankB-1 Premium Plus
Everyone knows, Jeff, that

“Birthday is Beer Day”. 🍻🍻🍻🍺🍻🍻🍻
JeffreyBrown Premium Plus
Ah, I see, Frank, and it totally makes sense to me now with the visual! 🤣🤣🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺

Seeing Humphrey out on the side of a highway is like spotting Sasquatch, Jeff! 🐫

I'm having a hard time determining if that's steak or pork chops on your plate - the toppings are covering it. Is it steak and fries?

Glad that you had a great birthday with your wife and the crew! 😎🐶🐱🐶

Isaiah 😊
JeffreyBrown Premium Plus
It essentially is, Isaiah, but this is not the first time he has done this, though he has certainly been better about not doing it recently, until now! 🐫

It is cheaper steak, but covered with sauteed onions and mushrooms, and it did not break Monica's budget! I was full and totally enjoyed her company, and I have some to eat today too!

My birthday was the best ever with the wife and crew!👩‍🦰🐶😹🐶

CherryRed20 Premium
Sounds like you had a pretty chilled day, Jeff.

I'm glad that you and Monica had a good time for your birthday.

Lastly, it's nice to see Humphrey on the highway although bizarre that he would appear on the highway! 😖😆

Have a great day ahead!

JeffreyBrown Premium Plus
It was very nice, indeed, Myra! WE both had a very nice time!

He had done it a couple of times last year, especially when I was driving Monica home from one of her surgeries!

You have a wonderful HUMP day!🐫

QiMindset Premium Plus
I'm happy to hear your birthday went so well, Jeff!
You have a lot of folks rooting for you!

You and Monica seem to be getting closer. I truly hope it all works out.

Get ready for the next 55, it all starts again tomorrow.

I know you're going to thrive though, 'cause that's how you roll!

Happy Birthday one more time my friend! (It's still the 28th here)

JeffreyBrown Premium Plus
I was too, Al! I know that a lot of you have my back for sure, and I am very thankful for that!

I pray everyday that it will ultimately work out.

I hope so too, Al, but I am tuckered out getting through this first one!

Thank you, my friend! I wish I could get those couple of additional hours!
