Weekend Open Mic

Weather: Looks like a fairly mild week coming up after a bit of rain on Saturday. Not bad at all for April.

The week: We’re going to dinner with friends on Saturday. Not much else planned for the weekend.
My wife gets her other knee replaced on Wednesday so it should be a rough few days after that. Hopefully, by next weekend she’ll start feeling a little better and we’ll see small improvements every day.

TV: Still watching the same shows: Billions (Prime), City On A Hill (Showtime), and a bit of Outlander (Netflix). The series finale of Shameless airs Sunday night. It had a couple of questionable seasons and a couple of characters I didn’t care for but overall I’m glad I watched it from day one. We’re still watching This Is Us (NBC), A Million Little Things (ABC) and a couple of other shows.

That’s it from B&P Headquarters in St. Louis. What’s going on in your world?

Weather: Looks like summertime here in the Midwest.

The week: We plan on working in the yard this weekend. We’re trying to get things around the house organized before my wife has her second knee replacement in about a week and a half. Not much else going on. We’re not really having any family Easter gathering this weekend.

TV: We’re still watching the same shows this week: Billions (Prime), City On A Hill (Showtime), and Outlander (Netflix), along with our regular TV favorites.

Weather: A little rain a little heat, a little chill… welcome to a week in St. Louis.

The week: I had a colonoscopy this past Wednesday. No polyps discovered so I get to wait 5 years for another one. Fun times!
Had both covid vaccine shots and have had the two-week waiting period so we’re now considered fully vaccinated.
We’re going to be with some family members on Saturday and Sunday for a while. Not much else going on.

TV: We’re still watching Outlander (Netflix), Billions (Prime), and just started watching City On A Hill (Showtime). Spending most of the time on Billions.

Weekend Open Mic

Weather: A decent start to spring on Saturday. The upcoming week doesn’t look too bad either.

The week: Nothing really planned for the weekend yet. Might do a little work around the house. I’m getting a colonoscopy this coming Wednesday so Tuesday will be fun (NOT).  

TV: We finished season 1 of both Outlander (Netflix) and Billions (Prime). Haven’t watched much else except the usual stuff we watch: This Is Us, The Unicorn, A Million Little Things, The Connors, Kenan, The Walking Dead, and Talking Dead (which I like better than TWD).  There are probably a couple of other shows that I can’t think of at the moment.

Weekend Open Mic

Weather: Kind of damp and a bit cooler this coming week which I guess is about average for this time of year.

The Week: I got my second Covid vaccination shot on Tuesday. I only had minor side effects the next day. ➜

We’re going to a St. Pat’s Bonfire Party on Saturday afternoon/evening.

TV: We watched the Eddie Murphy movie Coming 2 America (Prime).

We also started watching Billions (Showtime or Prime) that someone suggested, about a guy who makes billions in the world of high finance and the (kinky) US attorney that’s obsessed with trying to bring him down. I don’t understand all the high finance jargon but I’m getting into the characters. And there’s enough titillating naughtiness to help keep it interesting.

Weekend Open Mic

Weather: After a fairly decent week for the end of February, the first week of March doesn’t look too bad either.

The week: Nothing much planned for the coming week. The rec center in my neighborhood finally opened back up so this week I started going back there to walk the track. I only walk 10 laps which is almost a mile and I work out on a couple of machines. I can tell I’m out of shape by how tired I feel when I get done. But, hey, it’s a start.

TV: We finished season 3 and re-watched season 2 of The Sinner (Netflix) with Bill Pullman. We also watched season 1 of Firefly Lane (Netflix). There will likely be a season 2 but it hasn’t been confirmed yet. If there is another season we’d probably watch it. We also got back to watching Outlander Friday night.

Weather: Cold and snow and ice suck!

My week: BRRR! Mostly just staying home except for an occasional trip to the store. Might try to take a drive this cold weekend before snow arrives again on Sunday. Got an appointment for a Covid vaccination on Tuesday.

TV: Still watching Outlander (Netflix). We also started watching the new season of The Sinner (Netflix). We knew we’d seen the first two seasons but couldn’t remember anything about them so we started watching season two also. It’s a really good show with Bill Pullman who plays a detective.

Weather: we’re starting the year out with a bit of snow and ice, but not enough to cause many problems (hopefully).

The week: We had a quiet New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. Not much planned for the coming week.
My back is better this weekend. My doctor put me on some antibiotics as he thinks I might have had a UTI.

TV: We watched The Flight Attendant 7/10 (HBO MAX) , Soul 7/10 (Disney+), the Belushi documentary about John Belushi 8/10 (Showtime), and Bridgerton 8/10 (Netflix).

Weekend Open Mic

Weather: Not too bad for Christmas week in St. Louis. Later this week is probably the only few days of the year that I would enjoy a 4 to 6 inch snow. If you can’t give it to me then, then don’t give it to me later.

The week: We are going to a bonfire with friends Saturday night. I’m not sure what we’re doing for family Christmas this year, if anything.

Website: We’re having a problem with posts not posting at their scheduled times. It seems like all of a sudden several posts will pop up at once, where they’re supposed to post individually. I’m not sure why that’s happening and haven’t had too much time to work on it.

TV: We watched The Undoing (Netflix) this week. I had read about its controversial ending. I thought the ending was fine and not controversial. We also watched the movie AVA (Netflix) and it was pretty good. I watched one episode of the documentary Murder On Middle Beach (Netflix). I’ll probably watch more of that soon. We watched 5 or 6 episodes of The Office (Netflix). I couldn’t get into it when it first appeared on NBC years ago. It’s a little better now, but I’m not sure I can stick with it. It moves to Peacock on January 1st.

Weekend Open Mic

Weather: After a few days of near 70° temperatures winterlike weather returns.

The weekend: We’re going to the wedding of our grandson Vince and his bride, Mady on Saturday. His dad, Dave, tested positive for Covid on Wednesday so he won’t be able to attend. We don’t have anything else planned.

TV: We’re 3 episodes in to The Undoing (HBO MAX). There are only 6 episodes and apparently the final episode is controversial, or so I’ve heard.
We’re also watching A Million Little Things (ABC), This Is Us (NBC) and we started the final season of Shameless (Showtime).
