Here's how we spent our weekend instead of wasting it on week 5 of the NFL. Smokin

Week 6: Nothing too exciting Sunday... washed and waxed the ride. Saturday was pretty awesome, though. Took a a morning walk, an amazing afternoon hike and enjoyed some ridiculously good weather. But Sunday was quiet. I'll admit I score-watched online a little bit. Pretty sure this was the first Steelers/Browns game I've missed since 1974.

Week 5: We enjoyed an absolutely GORGEOUS Ohio fall day outside with our grandson.

Week 4: A visit to the pumpkin patch with the wife and family. Pi_heartbeating

I went on a long bike ride. Wanted to grab a beverage on my way home and decided to stop at the local bar. The place was almost empty. It appears direct tv and maybe the nfl could not get together and nothing, expect the local coverage, was televised.

My first thought was it was good to see the social justice fools suffer but then realized their failure was really hurting the local business and its employees. That last part left a sour feeling in my stomach that one local brew could not ease.

I didn't watch it either. it wasn't telecast and I wasn't paying jack squat to the NFL. I went to the range and had a lot of fun.

I had fun with my buddy Sig and AR.

I went to the range with my buddies Sig and AR. This is becoming quite the habit for me.

I would think mowing that lawn would take up all your free time anyway!

This week did some odd jobs around the house and not much else. Did not watch 1 play or lap of any sport.

Same here. No football, and I don't watch any other sports. Even better, no NEWS. There's none of that sludge coming into our home via the television.

Admittedly, I do still read plenty of news articles, I do watch some news-related videos and an occasional live stream. But the days of having cable news droning on for hours via the TV are over.

I will admit, I'm looking forward to the return of the Buckeyes and Big Ten football later this month, although it's unlikely I'll give up my Saturday afternoons to watch any other than the most "important" games.

There is a trail entrance into a fairly large state park a little more than 2 miles from my house. It’s mile walk into the park to get to most of the amenities, like a lake, pool, a huge amphitheater, museum, and snack bar (when open). Tons of walking and biking trails. I’m thinking about heading over today for an hour or so to check out a few more trails. Took the misses with me yesterday, walked around and had a picnic lunch. Sure beats sitting in the house.

My son and three of his friends did 2 gun all day. That's the good news. The bad news? I blew through 200 bucks of ammo. It was worth every penny. Lately he has helped me with my depression. He and his friends put up with an old man joining them to shoot. I love my son

Rainy day, all day constant downpour. Stayed in, watched movies, ate some leftover pot roast from the day before.

 Today it’s cloudy with drizzle. 4th day with rain in a row. Good news is we had our yard core ariated and overseeded two weeks ago. The extra water certainly has a profound effect.
