Rickie Traeger: Happy Sunday! Just Saying Hi




I was trying to get this posted before midnight, so it would be a Saturday blog. I am late, lol. So it is now Sunday, so Happy Sunday!  

Hopefully everyone is having a fun and safe weekend.  Mine is going good.  All except the snowblower decided not to start. So I had to shovel all that wet and heavy snow by hand. Free exercise I guess, lol.  This is by far one of the better winters I can recall, so a lil shoveling I don’t mind. 

I listen to spotify alot, but lately they been doing a ton of ads on there. It would freeze up and not play at all. So, I decided to go back to the Amazon Prime music.  Looks like Amazon upgraded their music stuff. So I guess I am done with spotify for awhile, and back to Amazon music 🙂 

Got our press credentials to work another worldwide event that is coming up. 
I won’t say much right now. But everything is set in stone now 🙂  Stay tuned! 

So I haven’t played my guitar in awhile.  I think after I write this up, I am going to play it. I am sure I will be rusty, lol.  As they say, if you don’t use it, you lose it lol.  We will see if I still have my guitar skillz.  LOL.   

Speaking of, i am going to pop off here.  I just wanted to say hi to everyone 🙂

Rickie Traeger: I wanted to share a memory that involves my dad and uncle Ray




I wanted to share a memory that involves my dad and uncle Ray, that I haven’t told many people.  I still remember this like it happened yesterday.  I was sitting here and I was just thinking about this, so I figured I would blog about it. 

Years ago when I was growing up my dad and uncle Ray would take us kids out to the park to go fishing all the time.  My dad and uncle Ray loved to fish. So we would go a lot as we were growing up.

One day we were out at the park and a storm was rolling in. The weather alerts were going off saying to seek shelter and all that good stuff. Well we were out at the lake fishing and didn’t see the storm right away.  A short time later these dark black clouds come rolling in.  My dad and uncle Ray said we were going to stay there and fish until the storm was right on top of us.

That is exactly what happened. We fished until the storm was pretty much on top of us. Then we all packed into the vehicle to leave.  We left the park and were headed back home.

On the way back home it was lightning and thundering pretty heavy. Pretty intense storm with a lot of rain, lightning and thunder.  We get to the area of Harlem and Alpine.  All of a sudden out of nowhere…

A BOLT OF LIGHTNING STRUCK OUR VEHICLE! 

Yes, a bolt of lightning hit our vehicle!  Scared the crap out of us all, LOL. Thankfully no one was touching any metal inside the vehicle.  The lightning struck the hood/windshield are of the vehicle and did some damage.

I remember this like it happened yesterday.  And it is one of those whacky moments that I will never forget with my dad and uncle Ray.  Miss you guys. Love You!  Hope you guys are having fun up in the heavens above.

 








Rickie Traeger: Project Blue Book :) 




  Project Blue Book 🙂 

Oh how I love that tv show!    I think it is cool to see they started the season off with the Roswell episode. I think they did that because they know many people relate to the Roswell Incident.  So it captures the interest of many.  It was a pretty good episode.

There are already a few things that caught my attention. The relation ship with Susie and Quinn, the UFO investigator figuring out who Mimi is, and the whole Harding thing.  I liked how they at the end added the man who shot the alien as it tried to flee.  That is reported to actually be true. There were reports of 2 crash sites. And at the 2nd site, there were reports of aliens at that site. And reports of the military shooting one as it tried to flee.  As you know, nothing is confirmed, lol.  But there are reports of that actually happening.

Watching the show, you really have to have an open mind to things.  I for one have an open mind 🙂

You should too, check it out Tuesday nights at 9pm 🙂

 

 








Rickie Traeger: Project Blue Book, Hire A Photographer, Winter Weather




It is officially Tuesday now.   I am super excited!  Project Blue Book is coming back on tonight!  Heck yeah! 


I have to replace the bathroom fan later on today. I am so not looking forward to doing that. But I think it is going bad, so I need to replace it.  I watched some Youtube videos on how to replace them. They make it look easy.  Let me say one thing, the more a video makes something look easy, the harder it really is to do, LOL.


If you know anyone who needs a photographer.  Contact me, Will and I have some openings now available.  We can do your photoshoot and events for you!

Our work speaks for itself. So you know you will be getting the best of the best photographers when you hire us 🙂

If you want to hire us to do your photos, shoot us an email at RockfordScanner@Gmail.com


I just looked at the weather forecast. I am kind of liking it.  It is not going to be super cold. But…….. There is several inches of snow possible.   I will definitely take the snow over really cold temps, anyday!   I actually enjoy the snow. I wish it could snow in the summer time, but that is impossible.   I am just happy to see the temps will be above 0 degrees!


Alright I am going to pop off here and play some Red Dead Redemption 2.

I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful Tuesday. Don’t forget Project Blue Book is on tonight!








Rickie Traeger: Good Eminem Video




 








Rickie Traeger: Interesting Video Of A UFO




So I am reading Jim Penniston newest book about his experience with the Rendelshem Forest experience.

And as I reading the book, it reminded me of a video I recently saw.

As I am reading the book, the description that is given in the book. Reminds me of this video.

 








Rickie Traeger: Is My Vehicle Haunted Or A Heck Of A Coincidence???




Starting to wonder if my vehicle may possibly be haunted or if it is just a heck of a coincidence???

You are probably asking yourself, WTF???     LOL

My vehicle broke down earlier tonight.  It broke down at the same place, same exact spot that last few times it has broke down.
I think it is weird that it breaks down at the same intersection at the same spot.    I mean WTF???
So is my vehicle haunted or a heck of a coincidence???  That is the question of the day, lol.

On a more serious note I want to give a shout out to Cruz Towing 815-988-8888 for coming to save me!  He is a dam good tow truck driver and a hell of a nice man. I highly recommend Cruz Towing.  He has treated me right over the years.  And everytime I break down, he  is there to help.  Thank You!

So you are probably asking yourself, well what is wrong with the vehicle?  If not, I know I am sure thinking that question! LOL.
If the code reader is correct, then it should be a simple fix.   It is reporting the code P0102, which is the MAF. So I am hoping that is the actual cause. Because I can start off by cleaning it, to see if that makes a difference. And if not I found the part on RockAuto for only $40 plus shipping and taxes.  And it should be simple to fix.

But now with all that being said……  NOTHING is ever simple when you are working with vehicles!

 








Rickie Traeger: Celine Dion




Happy Tuesday everyone 🙂 

This is going to be a quick post.  Not many people know I like Celine Dion.

I was browsing Youtube and came across this.

Kick back and enjoy

 

 








Rickie Traeger: Well there was no snowpocolypse




Good morning everyone. 

Well there was no snowpocolypse, WTF as usual the media hypes it up and then we get 2 inches at most.   If they call that a big winter storm, then they obviously never grew up in our area.  LOL.   

Some were throwing predictions of 9 inches, and yet all I see is maybe 3 inches at tops.  And that is on the good end at most, lol. 

I went out and just shoveled it. As of a lil bit ago, it was the light fluffy snow for the most part.   

I have yet to see a city plow. But I have saw several private contractors out n bout, but no city plows.  They could be out n bout, but I personally have not saw one.

So I guess it is official, we are back into winter again, yippie skippie, lol.   The positive side, closer to becoming spring time 🙂 

 2 more months, or 8 weeks. However you want to look at it, lol.  Well rough estimates. I am sure someone will read this and tell me the exact times, lol. 

Everyone stay safe and enjoy your Sunday. Be careful if your headed to church this morning.
