Sweet Water BBQ

Quick review of a small BBQ joint I ate at recently.   Sweet Water BBQ is a decent little bbq joint that has a select number of items to choose from.  The have wings, brisket, pork, Cajun Shrimp, and some fixin’s to go with it.  The food comes out on one of those plastic plates that you would find at a backyard BBQ.  The place is tucked away and pretty easy to miss.  You just have to drive by Uranus Fudge Factory and General Store to get there.  Yeah I’m not shitting you that is a real place.  Go ahead click the link.  No it’s not like blue waffle, don’t be a tool and just open the link.   Continue reading “Sweet Water BBQ”

Relax it’s Sunday

It’s a special Sunday today because it’s Fathers Day.  So sit back have some beer, tell some dad jokes, and enjoy a great day.  Hopefully the weather is great wherever you are and you can do some awesome stuff.  I am back from being off the grid for two weeks and ready to get back to work.  I enjoyed a good two weeks doing some dude type stuff and being around some really good guys.  Like Vegas thought these stories will stay where we left them.

Today I am heading over to my buddy Sean’s to enjoy some sweet family time and some awesome food.  Sean is notorious for his meat, once it’s in your mouth it’s all over.  I am preparing my body now for the potential food coma that is coming.  The night will surely end with great food, kids playing in the yard, and the adults sitting by the fire and telling awesome stories.  I can’t wait.

Going to Sean’s place is great because I missed my families reunion on Saturday.  It sucks but it was late by the time I got home and I really just wanted to be with the girls.  My oldest had a huge dance recital that I missed and I wanted to hear all about it.  Super proud of her, she is growing up way to fast.  My youngest didn’t skip a beat, she kissed me and then pushed me aside so she could finish coloring and making up an imaginary story in her head.  So cute.  Love these girls.

The wife and I sat outback and enjoyed an awesome night having a few drinks and catching up things that I missed over the last two weeks.  The girls stayed inside and played while we enjoyed each others company.  While sitting out back we talked about more things than I can remember at this point.  It was a perfect night.

I can’t wait to see what the day brings and the stories that we will talk about.  I can’t wait for the stories to send me back in time and remember moments that we tend to forget.   Take some time to sit with your family and enjoy the day.  For the Dads out there do what you like it’s your day.

Happy Fathers Day to All.

See you in the Future – Thee Time Traveler.

Relax It’s Sunday

Today is an amazingly beautiful day.  Hurricane Hermine has stayed of the coast but brought amazing temperatures.  This week has been a great week once again, spent time with family, friends, and had some awesome drinks this week.  Early in the week I took a day trip to Philadelphia, worked on creating a website, celebrated DP Killa’s birthday, and hung out at a brewery.  All in all I really enjoyed this week very much.

On Tuesday of this past week friends, coworkers, and myself spent the day in Philadelphia as part of a team building event.  We visited the Constitution Center,

Constitution Center

Independence Mall, Independence Beer Garden, and I made my way over to the Reading Terminal Market.  I am a big fan of visiting Cities because of the hodge-podge of cultures that are intertwined in these concrete jungles.  The is truly evident when you go to the Reading Terminal Market.  If you have time today I would pack up and go walk the city, it’s amazing out and bring your appetite.

I continue to work past my fears of starting on an online business.  I think that I am totally over the hump now and ready to move forward with it.  I had to sell the wife on the idea which is the toughest part.  I didn’t want to do anything unless she was totally on board.  I got the go ahead from he so this week I will continue to research and pursue my side venture.  I am really excited and can’t wait to get started on it.

Friday night would be a good night, I would spend the late afternoon and evening hanging out with DP Killa celebrating his 34th Birthday.Many  It’s started out easy enough drinking a few beers, which then led into white Russians and watching “The Big Lebowski.”  I love that movie and many years ago DP and I would watch it before or after bowling in league play.  Mark it an X dude.

Saturday was good even if there was a ton of wind.  I went to Blue Earl Brewing Company where they were having a car show, beer garden, live music and food trucks.  The food truck that I would visit that day wasn’t located there but in its normal spot, the parking lot of Auto Zone and Royal Farms in Smyrna, Delaware.  The truck is called O’ Phoebe’s BBQ, www.ohphoebe.vpweb.com.  The truck is awesome, and by no means does this dude go easy on the food.  His smoker has been in use for 15 years and the flavor backs that up.  His prices are great for the amount of food that you get.  He isn’t skimping on anything either, he does it his way, and he only says whats on his mind.  Great dude Great food.

As far as today goes I will sit and relax, enjoy a book, “The Storytellers’s Secret” by Carmine Gallo, and end the day hanging with some good friends.  I am on vacation this upcoming week and plan on working on the new website and online business.  As a family we continue to go back and forth on either getting a pool, or a trailer at the beach.  We really can’t decide which way to go.  If there are any good book idea’s out there please share away.  Enjoy your day, have fun and make some awesome memories.

See you in the Future – Thee Time Traveler.
