“Watching Cartoons and Stupid Stuff”

The title of this blog was inspired by none other than the Little Red-Haired Girl, herself.

Many of you in the Blockhead Nation seem to be curious about what a typical summer day looks like for a teacher-by-day, podcaster-by-weekend like me.

Your wish is my command, readers…


Today being Monday, my morning consisted of feeding the dogs around 6am and attempting to keep them preoccupied with chew toys as I showered to get ready to go!… Go get a fresh coffee from town, that is.

While driving the YFB-Mobile, debating which dark roast to purchase, I listened to a podcast about stocks and options trading. As a “chaser”, I went back to my Audible library and listened to a few crucial chapters by Benjamin Graham in The Intelligent Investor.

As I sipped my coffee traveling back to the Blockhead Mansion, YFB slipped on his swimsuit and flip-flops to prepare for the first summer swim in the community pool for our suburb.

Completely alone, surrounded only by clear blue skies and the morning sun, YFB submerged into the crystal clear water…well, somewhat clear. Aside from the colony of Junebugs and abandoned swim trunks at the bottom of the deep end, it was a fantastic swim.

Upon returning to the Blockhead Mansion, I decided to sit down and write this blog for your enjoyment and at your convenience. So, I guess this is where it is “best practices” to plug my affiliate links for my two favorite websites I promote when blogging:

  • Summer deals for UrthBox
  • Summer steals on “TOP DAD” t-shirts from Five Finger Tees (FYI, Top Gun: Maverick is a MUST WATCH!)

While attempting to focus on this, I have on HBOMax, watching exactly what irritates the Little Red-Haired Girl: “cartoons and stupid stuff”. She is always teasing me when I need my daily dose of cartoons such as The Peanuts, Looney Tunes, Tom and Jerry, etc. followed up by shows like Aqua Teen Hunger Force on Cartoon Network and other mindless drivel on YouTube.

As Daniel Stern used to say on The Wonder Years, “Well, there ya had it.”

See ya next time, Blockhead Nation!
