September 24, 2012 Monday Afternoon

Spent Friday night watching the movie The Avengers.  It was OK.  I am sure if you like comic hero's one would enjoy the movie.  I shy away from movies like this usually.  Went to bed around 10 PM after a little lovin.

Saturday morning we were up at 7 AM.  Fed the dogs and gave Vito his shot.  Spent the morning reading the newspaper and doing things around the house.  Got Tony to leave the house around noon so we could use a gift certificate at the Italian Community Center and have lunch.  We have had this gift certificate hanging on the frig for over 6 months and thought since it expires next month we might as will have lunch on it.  What are the odds the place would be closed for the one day to have the carpets cleaned.  Ended up going to another restaurant, one owned by Ryan Braun.  Had a nice lunch but was a little expensive.  I have a hard time paying $12 for a hamburger.  After lunch we went to the MSOE museum.  This weekend Milwaukee is holding it's annual Doors Open event where buildings and places you always wanted to go in and never can, are open to the public.  The roof top of the museum has all these statues you can see from the ground.  So it was somewhere I always wanted to see and we did indeed go to it.  Here are a few pictures from up on the terrace looking over the Milwaukee skyline.

As we were leaving the building the police had the road in front of us closed and we were told that President Obama was about to drive by so we decided to watch.  Here is a video of Obama's motorcade driving by us.

Once the motorcade drove by and the road opened we drove home and spent the rest of the day watching season 6 of Weeds.  Got through episodes 1 through 8.  Still have 3 episodes to watch at a later time.   Went to bed around 10:30 PM.
 
Sunday morning we were up at 6:30 AM.  Fed the dogs and gave Vito his shot.  Decided to take Tony's mom out for breakfast, so we drove to the south side of town and picked her up and went to breakfast.  After we dropped her off at home we went to Hobo to look at kitchen counter tops, pricing them for a future project upstairs in the rental unit.  Ended up buying a bunch of crap we didn't go there for and came home.  Spent the rest of the day watching TV on the DVR before ending the night watching the award show on ABC.  Did the lovin thing and went to bed around 10 PM after the award show.
 
This morning I was up at 6:30 AM.   Fed the dogs and gave Vito his shot.  Spent the morning doing things around the house, cleaning and some small projects.  Made some tomato soup for lunch and took a nice hour nap with the dogs on the bed.  It is in the mid 60s today in Milwaukee.  The sun is out so if your in the sun it is warm enough with a jacket.  It was in the 40s when I woke up this morning.  We did indeed end up turning on the heat this weekend.
