Grown Up Holidays

It is odd being in a spot with out snow for Christmas, particularly having grown up within the nice white north of New England. I will take it although. I believe I’ve formally had an excessive amount of snow in my life haha 🤣

Do not let the boring prime of this weblog cease you from studying the entire weblog…or the enjoyable stuff. I wanna learn about you, so please learn all of this 😁


I lately celebrated my birthday with a pleasant quiet and enjoyable day stuffed with certainly one of my favourite meals – home made lasagna and some moments at a small native seashore watching the sundown. 

After I was youthful, I might search to get rowdy at some bar or home social gathering with associates (even unhealthy influences like my buddy Jonny Firestorm), however as with most individuals, the years have modified what I discover to be gratifying. I nonetheless prefer to get somewhat rowdy however I’ve positively slowed down.

Much less consuming (for now) and somewhat extra centered on attempting to get in (excellent) form once more. Or no less than some good pecs and shoulders. Perhaps some meat on the legs and arms. I am even debating on taking on operating. 

Here is one thing Donnie Dukes despatched me this morning. Man, if solely that is what The Champ nonetheless seemed like eh? 



Not too long ago satisfied myself to purchase somewhat cheap report participant ($35) and have been listening to complete data. Do you bear in mind doing that? Shopping for a complete report or CD and exploring it from begin to end. Discovering little gems that did not make it to radio.

I began my assortment with some positive issues – ABBA, Billy Joel, Jim Croce, Elvis, Van Morrison & Fat Domino. I’ve picked up a couple of newer bands – The 1975, Mac Miller, Chris Stapleton, Morgan Wallen & a pair others. 

I am fairly massive into music. I take pleasure in concert events (ideally small acoustic ones) and discovering new songs (even when they’re many years previous). Discovering covers of hit songs or virtually hit songs.

Watched the film The Holdovers and the soundtrack for that was prime notch. I counsel checking that movie out. I’ve been listening to “Crying, Laughing, Loving, Mendacity” on repeat for like 2 weeks. 

At all times open to musical options, so let me know what you assume I might like. 


I have been attempting to repair up some stuff at my home and I used to be struggling to search out good assist…till Tanner Ripley moved to the world and Blake Starr jogged my memory of his expertise. Between the two of them, issues are coming alongside properly.

I did somewhat development work once I was youthful and assist my associates work on stuff from time-to-time, however I am extra of the man who carries stuff and holds the flashlight for them. I am extra succesful than you’d assume however I choose to depart it to the precise expert of us once I can.

Blake is a perfectionist together with his craft and he jogs my memory of my buddy in Maine together with his intention for greatness. In an previous home, that is VERY troublesome. Fixing one thing so simple as a leak within the plumbing or a bizarre spot within the drywall opens up a can of worms. 

Is not it superb what sort of work some individuals do. I imply shoddy. Blake takes his time and loves explaining the method (similar to my buddy again dwelling in Maine). Makes me virtually assume I might do it on my own with their assist 😜


I lastly booked my flight out to Los Angeles. I have been planning this journey for weeks however I ended placing it off. 

I will be on the market for about 2 or 3 weeks – doing shoots, wrestling, studying some new tips within the wrestling world and hanging with my buddy Ron Sexton. Pondering possibly we are able to breathe some life again into Can-Am. 

Whereas I am there I plan to lastly try Palm Springs, so when you have any suggestions on what to see on the market please let me know. 

Additionally, I would like an excuse to get all the way down to Orange County. It has been a complete lot of years, so anyone problem me to a match or 2 down that manner 💪

Unsure once I’m returning, however pondering of swinging as much as Chicago to interrupt up the lengthy aircraft trip. We’ll see what occurs with potential enjoyable actions in Chicago. Perhaps I will keep away from the chilly climate and break up the journey by swinging all the way down to Texas or Mexico. I do not know. 

Anybody have a greater thought?


I get an excellent quantity of emails. I simply slayed by 1500+ emails with particular person responses to 95% of them. Took me a couple of weeks (and longer than I anticipated) however I am completely happy and content material with that – understanding that I strive to answer everybody who sends an e-mail to me.

Some individuals get upset that it takes me lengthy to reply a few of their messages and typically I even miss a time-sensitive e-mail.

Please permit somewhat grace. I am not a HUGE enterprise by any means. I like to ensure to learn every thing and doing so on a pc goes in opposition to my soul. I choose studying books and newspapers on precise paper. Perhaps I ought to simply go to a strictly snail mail system 😜

Anyway, I do not know the way the “different guys” do it, however I’ve heard tales of the corporate with all the massive jacked muscle speaking trash to their followers in e-mail or the man who solely responds to argue about politics and faith with followers and supporters.  I really get forwarded correspondence from followers that share these interactions with me. It is superb.

Now, I do know I am not a peach 100% of the time, however my intention is nice and I’m a pleasant man who desires everybody to get what they need. Please permit some endurance and understanding. 

Whenever you make contact with me, you might be speaking to me and I am attempting to be as variety as potential.


I got here to the belief over summer season that holidays aren’t what they had been once we had been youngsters. It is not all enjoyable and video games anymore.

With that mentioned, I am planning to take off a while beginning Saturday, December twenty third and doing VERY LIMITED work stuff till December twenty seventh. Please perceive, I’ll resolve any and all issues however it might take me longer as I do NOT wish to be sitting at a pc on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. 

PS: I would like an excellent fishing spot. Any leads? 


Plenty of fascinating individuals on the planet and I do know that the supporters of Wrestler4Hire & Hero Hunks and all these different off-shoots are doing cool shit!

Share with me what you do. I am into music, books, bizarre artwork, and so forth. I’ve shared loads about me, share some about you.

Both publish a remark beneath or shoot me a personal e-mail. I am intrigued what different individuals do on the market within the universe. 

That is in all probability a very powerful a part of the weblog publish. As I’m genuinely curious. Not too long ago, I’ve discovered writers, piano gamers, artists, costume designers. They’ve even been variety sufficient to ship me copies of their works and signal them. 

I am legitimately excited concerning the responses to this.



Big thanks for the assist with elevating cash for my hometown in Maine throughout the chilly winter months. It was wild to see some BIG donations from some long-time followers and associates. Please know that I respect every thing legitimately and each greenback counts. Irrespective of if it is $1 or $1000. Thanks from my coronary heart.

As you will have seen, there was a wild ass storm that simply handed by. A few of my family and friends are nonetheless ready for energy to be restored. The flooding was wild. Apparently a dam had damaged and precipitated some havoc.

I am nonetheless on the lookout for some nominations for the 2022/2023 awards. If I do not get sufficient, we’ll skip it for this yr and I will discover one thing else we are able to do this’s enjoyable and work together.
