Rickie Traeger Blog: Missing My Dad Alot, Walking Dead, Late Night Blog





 

Tonight is a late night blog. I thought I would wait and write a bit at night time. Usually my blogs are in the mornings (or whenever lol)  but I figured I would wait tonight and blog.

So here it is 10:30 pm as I sit here and blog. I been working on my paranormal page (hope to have it finished later tonight) on my website here. I been working on that for awhile, maybe a week or so. I been writing stuff in depth and hope to have that active soon.

We watched the winter Olympics earlier. Pretty cool stuff. I still do not understand curling, lol. But we watched the lug, snowboarding, figure  skating, etc… I was hoping the USA would be doing better. I think the judges are biased, because the whole USA/N Korea situation. But hey that is just my thoughts lol.

I am binge watching one of my favorite shows as I write this. The Walking Dead!  They have been playing it alot!  I am super excited!  Sure does bring back memories. I actually forgot some the scenes, so I am glad they are replaying them.  Good to watch them and remind me of what happened over the years. Yes, I am a huge Walking Dead fan, but I did forget some stuff. I think they should go back to their roots and focus alot of the walkers, not so much of the living.

One month and nine days.  That is my dad’s birthday and also the first day of spring.  Bittersweet.  I miss my dad ALOT!  Is not a day that goes by that I do not think of him. I think about him all the time.  I would give anything, to see or hear him one last time. I was hoping that he would become a ghost and I would see him. But that has not happened yet. Maybe that is a good thing, and he crossed over. I sure do miss my dad ALOT!

Rickie Traeger Blog: Walking Dead Mid-Season Finale





This is going to be a quick blog.   Tonight is the mid-season finale of the Walking Dead.  I have a feeling that it will be another cliffhanger ending.

I think Gabriel might pass away.  His condition in recent episodes was pretty bad. So I think he will be a character they will probably kill off. I hate for em to do so, cuz I like him.  But they have killed off characters in the past who are favorites.  Another thing I like about the show, unpredictable.

I guess in a few more hours I will probably be blogging about the episode, and prob in shock and awe and probably mad cuz a cliffhanger ending, LOL.

Supermoon

December 3rd 2017 Blog 

Today is Sunday December 3rd 2017 and guess what that means?!?  Yup, Supermoon!  Tonight is the supermoon.  I am excited.  Now if only the weather will hold off so we can all watch it! According to the weather man, it is supposed to be partly cloudy which is good!  Last night we missed the ISS sighting, but hey we can see the Supermoon tonight!  Well let’s keep our fingers crossed! LOL   I plan on taking photos of it.

Walking Dead is on tonight!  Super excited about that also.  Sad that there is only 2 episodes left before the mid-season finale.  But it looks like it is going to be a good episode.  As you know I watch that show religiously!  So I cannot wait to watch it tonight!


I am currently chilling to Music Choice ROCK music station.  It is nice to hear some new rock music.  I really am bummed that the WXRX plays the older rock. Don’t get me wrong, the older music is good and what I grew up on, but I want NEW rock music.  The WXRX 104.9 is definitely not like what it used to be, that is for sure. It sucks these days. It be much better if they went back to their roots and played NEW ROCK MUSIC!  I don’t get to listen to music much these days. But when I do it is my “getaway” and I want to listen to the new stuff and see what’s out there these days.


I retook a refresher course in storm chasing. Not like I needed it. But I always like to keep up to date on things.  Heck I been storm chasing and spotting for numerous years and the course was a breeze.  But the reason why I am bringing it up, is because many people out there want to become storm spotters.  And I wanted to share the info with you.

It is always best to become a spotter, before a chaser!
