Happy 4th Birthday Disco

Seth's Birthday Present.  A Robot in Disguise

Disco turns four today, and honestly I AM TOO YOUNG TO HAVE A FOUR YEAR OLD SON!!!

So in honor of Disco.. I present two videos I made for him when he was born.

Beautiful Day

The Origin of Disco

Happy Birthday my son, you make me proud to be a father.


Occupy Boltonshire

So I've been taking notes the last month about this Occupy Wall St thing.

Then I made some additional notes in comparison.  This time looking at my children.

Either my kids are going to grow up to be a bunch of hippies, or the Occupy Wall Street hippies are a bunch of babies.  Sure I'm generalizing, but seriously, I'm part of the 99% as well and I don't think I'm entitled to ANYTHING that I didn't earn myself.  I don't need Obama to do anything for me.   I didn't need Bush to do anything for me either.

I work for a giant insurance company.  One of the largest in the nation.  I'm a warm body here.  If I lost my job today, should I complain about the 10 plus years I've put into the place?  Complaining does not put food on my kids plates.  It doesn't get my wife's medicine.

Heck no.  As a father, husband and a man being the sole income earner in my house, I don't give a crap if I have to donate plasma at seven different stations in between working general labor jobs from craigslist.  My family comes first before any cause.

There's nothing wrong with causes and fighting for them.  But this whole entitlement stuff is pure crap.  And while my kids are kids and I joke in jest about them being destructive forces of nature, they will see their parents working hard and not expecting something for nothing because a rich white guy in on the 97th floor made a billion dollars this quarter.

Have a great day my friends.


Happy Sixth Birthday Ladybug!

Ladybug has been counting down the days, weeks and months until this day was here.  We've tried to tell her we are not allowing her to turn six this year.  She didn't buy it.  We even told her that the president put in a a rider in the American Jobs Act that all birthdays that fell on October 14th were effectively cancelled this year going forward and there was nothing we could do about it.

She must listen to Rush Limbaugh because she knew that was crap too.

Against our wishes, October the Fourteenth has arrived and our baby girl has turned six years old and she couldn't be more excited.  I am taking it quite well as of this writing.  Tomorrow when I drop her off at school?  I'll be a hot mess.

I'm too young to have a six year old daughter...

Here's a picture of us the day she was born.

Daddy and Ladybug October 14th, 2005

I seriously can't believe she was EVER this tiny.

So in an effort to keep thinking of her this way, we recreated this photo last night.

Daddy and Ladybug October 13th, 2011
I haven't changed that much in six years.  Why the heck has she?

Happy Birthday Ladybug.  You are an amazing daughter, a terrific sister, and a wonderful blessing to this family.

Thank you for being my daughter.


Fantasy Football Results Weeks Four and Five

Life’s gotten kind of busy here in Boltonshire, so blog posts are few and far between.  If you see a daily post, it’s because it was scheduled in advance.  I’ll do my best to stay up to date 
Fantasy Football Week Four

El Supremo Maximos (2-1) vs SA Scikotics (2-1)

I played my baby brother (the one with the team that does not have a douchebag name).  We were both 2-1 going into the match up.  We were in Houston for my other brother’s wedding (the one WITH the douchebag name), and he took great joy in seeing the Steeler’s LOSE TO THE STINKIN TEXANS!!!!  Not for any real love for Houston, but for the fact the Steeler’s defense was yet again SCREWING WITH ME!!!!

Final Score: El Supremo Maximos 69 / SA Scikotics 79  

It wasn’t a total devastation, but if the Steelers would have done their crap, I could have won.

If I cussed, I’d call them a-holes.

El Supremo Maximos (2-2).

Fantasy Football Week 5

El Supremo Maximos (2-2) vs Team YO MERA (2-2)

I don’t even know what to think of the other team.  It would hurt if I did, so I didn’t bother.  I had won my first two games and it’s down hill from here and to be honest, I forgot about setting the team for play this week.  Honestly, I didn’t touch the team and was already pushing it out for auto pilot.

The Steelers didn’t suck up the field, but I would probably only call the b-holes now.  

But somehow, I pulled out a win.

El Supremo Maximos 127 / Team YO MERA 68
Obviously they put their team on auto pilot too.

Next Week
Next week I take on my new sister in law.  And I’m not EVEN going to put her name on here for fear it will bring in the wrong type of audience if they decide to google search her name, so I’m just going to call her, “Team Who Shall Not Be Googled”

El Supremo Maximos (3-2) vs. Team Who Shall Not Be Googled (3-2)

I’m scared.  Not because she’s my new sister in law and I don’t want to embarrass her.  I’m scared of search engine optimization results.

If you’re a perv leave this page.


Ladybug's Lunchbags: Spongebob Week

A couple things changed this week.  KC started working nights, and in an effort to keep her mentally sane, I changed my schedule so I could take Ladybug and MaddSkillz to school in the morning.  The down side is I don't get home until 7pm.

Expanding from a suggestion from Lee over at An Ordinary Dad, I started themes each week.  It's easier on me because I don't have to think about what to do every night.  

This week, Spongebob Squarepants' Supporting Characters


TUESDAY - Plankton

WEDNESDAY - A School of Jellyfish

THURSDAY - Mr. Krabs

There was not a Friday due to our going out of town for my brother's wedding (Team Thunder Dumplings from Fantasy Football).  And apparently I lied about the picture quality.

Have a great day my friends.


The City of Sugarland versus Eric D. Bolton et al.

We went to the Houston area for my brother's wedding this weekend.  We came home with this....

 Details to come later this week.  Hope your weekend was equally as fun.

Have a great week my friends.
