Picture of the Day

Here is you fill of Pictures. I will be out of town most of this week. I am going to UW Platteville for some Aggregate Testing Training. Sounds like fun doesn't it? So I won't be able to get any postings in this week. But maybe I will take my camera and get some glorious pictures of the campus. So here are some pictures to tide you over until Friday.
I was told this weekend that some of my pictures are too old to be putting up on my blog. But too bad. I don't have much exciting going on right now so it is old pictures or you can hear about how much fun I had cleaning my house today.

Here I am with my God-wife, Nancy, and my God-son, Nick at his first Communion.

This was also this weekend. See Julie, some recent pictures. Anyhow, here is Sarah and Erin, two of my nieces. I took them to Toys'R'Us so they could pick out anything they wanted for their birthday presents.

This one goes back to Spring Break down in Clearwater, Florida. Taken April 20th, 2000. That is back row, Russ, Nate and Andy, Front row, Brown and me. We were staying at Andy's future in-law's condo, right on the south end of the beach in Clearwater. We all had a good time that weekend. If my memory services me correct, I threw up at the bar twice on this night.
This one was taken September 21st, 2000 in Virginia. This was at a state park. I took this picture with a timer. As you can tell I am a ways away from the camera, so I had to sprint to the location that I was posing at. The area I was in, was below a look out area along the highway. I am standing on the edge of a cliff. After I took the picture and hiked back up to the parking area, this guy who was standing there stopped me. He said that the thought I was trying to commit suicide, because it looked like I was running to the edge of the cliff to jump off of it. This was also was taken about a half an hour after I got my $780 wreckless driving ticket for going 120 mph in a 65 mph zone. If the undercover officer would have had a radar gun on him, he told me that I would have been in jail.

This was taken June 11th, 2000 in Cleveland, Ohio. Just a statue that I saw and I got a picture with it.

This picture goes out by request. I forgot who requested it. Anyhow, this was taken July 3rd, 2004 on my front porch, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Me, Nate and his milk. The day Nate drank a gallon of milk in 20 minutes. This was taken about 10 minutes into the contest. To this day one of the most impressive feats I have ever witnessed. This was nearly 2 years ago, and I have told as recently as this past Thursday, that Eric is still working on putting together that DVD.

Before I get to the party, I am going to have to come clean with some thing. I have been slacking on my postings here on my blog, and unfortunately I think this a just a taste of what is to come for the summer months. I am sorry, but things just seem to get a little bit busier during the summer months. So you will have to bear with me. Anyhow it has been a busy week for me. Thursday I had a Pre Construction meeting up in Eau Claire for my bridge project that is suppose to begin around Labor Day. Well I found out at the meeting that I will probably be up there for about a week in May to Supervise some utility work. Thursday night I had kickball. Our team isn't too good. We are 0-4. And on a personal note I have get to kick a home run. I had three pretty good opportunities to stretch a routine single into a home run, I managed to get a double out of two of them but should have tried for more. And on the third I got thrown out on the way to home.
Friday night I had a bachelor party for my cousin. It was fun and that is all I really have to say about that.
So today is Saturday, and I am actually up early. I had some computer problems at home, so I am in the office this morning to print out some address labels and invitations for the title of this posting.

HERE IS THE EVENT YOU HAVE BEEN WAITING AN ENTIRE YEAR FOR. THE 5TH ANNUAL ANTONIO FREEMEN PARTY HAS BEEN SET. Antonio Freeman used to be a reciever on my beloved Green Bay Packers. He was actually a quite serviceable player for a number of years. But as so often happens, he was given a huge contract and soon after became utterly worthless. After a number of years of frustration, the day that the Packers cut him, I decided to have a party. And this is now a yearly celebration. So here are the particulars.

Date: Saturday, June 3rd 2006,

Time: 2:00 p.m. until whenever,
Kids games are scheduled to begin around 3:00 p.m.
With adult games to follow.
Dinner will be served about 5:00 p.m.

Where: My house, 127 N 78th Street, Milwaukee

Please RSVP by May 27th:
Phone: 414-476-6748
Home Email:
Work Email:

Bring your friends, family, whomever, as always kids welcome to attend. Please let me know how plan on attending.

So for my faithful blog readers consider yourself invited. Fort Wayne and Columbia, if you show, you will both get a bye in the first two rounds of the musical chair contest.

And for the rest of my weekend, today I am taking two of my nieces, Erin and Sarah, shopping for birthday presents. Tonight is my nephews first communion. And tomorrow I am cleaning my house.

Pictures of the Day

I know I have been slacking. Funny because now I don't have an excuse for not posting pictures. Although I have been checking my site meter. Fort Wayne and Columbia where are you? Did I say something to offend you? Neither of you have been on the site in a while. Maybe my stories are getting boring. Anyhow here are some pictures to make up for the last couple of days.
This picture was taken August 30th, 2000 at Edison Field, in Anihiem, California. Nothing to special about this one, I was again out in California for business. I remember I walked all around the stadium trying to find a scalper and there were none to be had. I ended up buying a $35 ticket to the game.

This picture was taken June 11th, 2000 at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, in Cleveland, Ohio. I went in the Hall of Fame. It was OK. But you couldn't or weren't suppose to take any pictures. And the only picture that I wanted was one with me and the four KISS costumes. Oh well.
This picture was actually taken just before the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame picture. I was out in Cleveland on business. And I was with a co-worker, Don Kusnick. We were walking to the Hall of Fame and I saw this sculpture. I gave Don my camera and started climbing it. It didn't dawn on me until I was at the top how high I was up in the area. Hey Joe, I assume you might be reading this, I see a photo op for "Shooter". This is with in easy walking distance of the stadium.

This picture was taken June 15th 1992 in Wales, Wisconsin. Paul, Kaker, Justus and me. Paul's dad, JFK took this picture. This is just one of a number of soccer pictures we took. The pictures seemed like a good idea at the time. And I guess they are amusing now. Especially since Kaker and Justus really don't play soccer anymore. Not that I would consider what I do as playing soccer.

Another DOT story

Jul y 17, 2005
The contractor was putting in culvert pipes on Lang Road. Sue was watching the pipe crew. I showed up later in the morning and one of the pipes just didn’t look right to me. It was too short. I did some calculations, and because we changed the slopes from a 4:1 to a 5:1, it screwed things up a little bit. On my calcuation I determined that we needed to add about 8 feet to make the pipe look right. I had the contractor order an extension for the pipe. I should tell you at this point that there are only 11 pipes on this job so it should be pretty easy to keep track of all of these pipes. The next day the contractor installed a 10 foot extension on to the pipe. Now I should also tell you that the diameter of the pipe is 24 inches in real life and also in the plan. Since I was there I did the measurements and when I went back to the field office to pay for the extra pipe I went to the spreadsheet that had all of the 24 inch pipes on it and it was blank. After a little investigating I found that Sue had measured it up at an 18 inch pipe. This is obviously a mistake, but it is something that probably shouldn’t get over looked. Maybe I am wrong.

Pictures of the Weekend

Saturday afternoon, my friend, Angela got married. So I was out in the East Troy area most of the weekend. Nothing too crazy happened, it was a lot of fun. So here are pictures.

Here are all 6 Bahr girls with their father Butch. Theresa, Missy, Ness, Rebecca, Angela, Butch and Trinity.

I was across the street from the church waiting to get in the convoy from the church to the bar and I caught this picture of Adam and Angela before getting in their truck.

This is my favorite picture that I got of Adam and Angela.
Here I am at the end of the night with the happy couple. Yes that is a glass of water. I got cut off at the bar, can you believe that? Actually they cut everyone off at 11:30. But check out that power tie. I bought it that afternoon. I don't know if tie clips are in or not. Does anyone know?

The Exam is Over

Alright the Professional Engineering Exam is over. How do I feel about it? Well let me give a bit of a run down on the exam. It is an 8 hour exam split into 2 - 4 hour parts. Each part is 40 questions, so that breaks down to 6 minutes per question. All questions are multiple choice. In the morning session, I finished having confident answers on all but 5 questions. The afternoon I had confident answers on all but 8 questions. So I was left with an educated guess on 13 of 80 questions. Assuming I got 1/4 of those right, since I answered pretty much all of those "C". And with there being only 4 possible answers per question, statistically speaking I should have 25% of those right. I need to score a 70 on the exam to pass, I am assuming that means 70% right. So with a little math, even if I got all 13 of those wrong, which I am fairly confident that I probably got 2 or 3 of those right, 80 -13 is 67. 67/80 is 83.75%. So according to my calculations, I need to get 56 out of 80 questions right to get a 70%. I really hope I did. Keep your fingers crossed with me.

After the exam I went with my sister, Deb and her family to the Brewer game. So no big surprise, I have been drinking since the exam completed. But I thought I would share some pictures that I took at the game. Tomorrow I have wedding, so I should have plenty of pictures from that occasion to share with you.

This is Lindsey and I in the car on the way to the Brewer game. Those aren't my glasses, but I do look good in them.

Here is my brother in law, Tim, and his daughter, Erin.

Here are the three Coonen Kids, Lindsey, Jared and Erin.

Here I am with Lindsey, Jared and Erin. Even though the game was over and the Brewers lost, I still think it is a pretty cool picture.

And lastly I took a picture of the materials I brought into my open book exam today. I used every one of these books. As you can see I have my tape measure out. That is over 14 inches of resource material. Are you kidding me? Over half of the people who took the exam had either a dolly or a rolling luggage bag to carry in there resource materials. I will give up all of my gifts for Christmas and my birthday for the next 5 years if I can just pass this exam. Wow I do not want to have to take that thing again. Wish me luck. Please log on to the poll to offer your vote on how you think I did. I will post the results of the exam when I get them at the end of June. Trust me I can wait.

Do you think I passed the exam?
Of course you did, don't sweat it.
No way, you can't be good looking and smart.
Pass it? I doubt you got your name right.
I thought you would drink the night before and over sleep.

I know, I know

Sorry I am a bit behind on my pictures of the day. I took today and tomorrow off of work to study for my exam. Which is not less than 48 hours away. Hopefully I will pass and I won't have to complain about it again. Here are a couple pictures since I might not be able to get any postings up for the rest of the week.

This was taken 11-5-96, Village of Shorewood Police Department, Shorewood, Wisconsin. Rifle Range at the Shorewood Police Department, my college internship with the village.

This picture was taken 5-6-00, on 6th Street, Austin, Texas. I went down to Texas to visit the General. This was at bar time. I was tired so I sat down in the street. And at night they block off sixth street so that only pederstrians can walk down it, or at least they did on this night. People kept asking me if I was OK. I was fine, but just tired and I wanted to sit down.
This on was taken on 8-30-00, in Anaheim, California. It was actually outside of the stadium. I went to a game there. This is a picture of me with the Gene Autry statue. Gene Autry was the owner of the Angels for 38 years. The Angles retired the number 26 in his honor as the team's 26th player in 1982. The Angels won three American League pennants under his watch as owner.

6-24-00, Pro Football Hall of Fame, Canton, Ohio. Me and the front sign outside of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Shuttle Bus Story

This story came up yesterday while playing cards and I have begun to make note of these stories to share with all of you. I believe it was two or three years ago, my good friend Jay got married. And I threw him a bachelor party in Wisconsin Dells. I had rented out a condo for the weekend. One evening we had a group that wanted to go to the casino. I called the casino and they said that they would not send a shuttle bus to a residence, but they would pick us up from a hotel about a or two mile down the road. It was pretty cold out and no one wanted to walk. So even though I shouldn't have, I did drive the mile or two down the road to the hotel with about 8 guys in the back of my truck and then we got picked up by the shuttle bus. We got our gambling in and when the black jack tables closed we all jumped back on the shuttle bus. I will have to admit that we were a wild bunch. And to be honest, I can't recall who was along with me. Off the top of my head I would guess, The General, a Klink or two, Nate, Jay, Borky, etc. and there were some other people on the shuttle bus from other hotels. I know we were getting loud, and at one point someone let out an F-bomb or two. This bothered the bus driver and he pulled the shuttle over to the side of the road and threaten to kick all of us off of the bus. (What are we 12?) It was March and about 3 or 4 in the morning, it had snowed a couple inched the night before, so no one on the bus was in any mood to be getting kicked off the bus and walking, so we all shut up. The bus eventually turned down the road to head to hotel where we got picked up. I figured that no one wanted to ride back to the condo in the back of my truck again and I knew the bus was going to be driving right by our condo. I also knew that I could just pick up my truck in the morning. When shuttle was only a couple hundred feet from our condo, I stand up and start swearing as loud as I can at everyone on the bus. And after our earlier scowling the bus had been pretty quite with just a couple of conversations going on. So my outburst was quite a shock to everyone on the bus especially the driver. The driver started to slow down and then pulled over. I walked up to the front of the bus and the driver was a little reluctant to open the door. To which I said "Well tough guy, are you going to kick me off the bus or what?" The driver was still confused by all of this and just opened the door. Meanwhile, the rest of my group is still on the bus also trying to figure out what I am doing. I yelled back to them as I was getting off the bus "Are you guys coming or what?" It didn't dawn on any of them, that we were right in front of the condo, but they finally figured it out and followed.

Picture of the Day

Happy Easter Fort Wayne and to the rest of you. Sorry Columbia, Fort Wayne checks in more often that you do, they get top billing and you are the opening act. I always enjoy Easter. I spend most of the day at my parent's place. And I get to see all of my nieces and nephews. Somehow it came to be that I would launch model rockets for the kids on Easter. I forgot about it, until last night, so around 8:30 I was driving around town looking for rocket engines. But I found some. I am also in charge of hinding Easter Eggs. But these kids are getting older and smarter. I will have to be more devious today. The picture above is me with all of my nieces and nephews in my back yard. Nick, Ethan, Lindsey, Abbigail, Ethan, Jared, Sarah, Erin, Josh and me. A little side story pertaining to Easter. When I was younger and living at home, my parents always made me go to church. I don't know if this made me a better person or not, but I was there every Sunday. On Easter we would go to church on Maundy Thursday, the late Good Friday Service and then Early Sunrise service on Easter. Our church would also serve breakfast after the sunrise service. Traditionally speaking I did enjoy this, at least once I got myself out of bed. Although the breakfast was the best part of the event. One year when I was in college probably my second or third year, I came home Easter weekend. One thing led to another and on the night before Easter Sunday, I somehow got talked into going out with some friends. I honestly don't know what time I got home that morning, but if it had been the actual Easter Sunday, I would have had plenty of time to help roll away that stone first before going to bed. I might have got 2 hours of sleep before I had to get up for church. I was in rough shape during the service, I was sweating and my stomach was turning. Just brutal. After the service, I went with my parents to sit down for the Easter breakfast at the chuch. I was sitting across from my dad, just looking miserable, and he said to me, "How late were you last night, you look horrible." I told him that I wasn't really sure. And then came the best Easter gift I ever recieved. My dad told, "Why do you just leave and go home and rest?" I was out of there in two seconds and spent the rest of the remainder of that day in bed recovering.

Tree is Back in Town

Last night there was a little get together. My good friend, Tree, his wife, Heather and their daughter, Katilyn were back in town. They now live in North Carolina. Apparently all of my friends are growing up and I am not. It used to be we would get together play cards, drink shots and be out all night. Now at these get togethers there are kids running around and pregnant women walking around. This is all fine with me, just different. An example of how I haven't changed came out at the end of the night. Tree was having a little bit of a problem eating his chocolate sundae, so being the good friend that I am I tried to help him out. In the process, Tree got a little bit of ice cream on his face. I don't know how it happened, but I never thought of Tree as being all that coordinated. Soon after a bit of a fracas broke out, and Tree and I were rolling around wrestling on the floor. It was enough of a scene that the entire bar turned to see what was going on. It was a good time, and a great opportunity to some friends I haven't seen in a while. Well here are some pictures from last night. Here is Joe, a very loyal blog reader, displaying his opinion of Justus Klink.
Here is Dawn and Diane. I think I may have talked Diane into naming her son, Topher.

Here is Tree and The General, a father and expecting father, no doubt discussing the finer points of changing diapers. I guarranty The General screws it up the first dozen times, either backwards or it will fall of within minutes.Tree toweling off after our wrestling match. Notice that I took this picture from the floor laying flat on my back. Tree got some good punches in, but I still say I won the match.

Picture of the Day

This picture was taken on April 22, 2000, in Y-Bor City, Florida. In the back row Left to Right, Russ, Nate, Tim and Truz. Front row me and Browny. I guess all I can say about Y-Bor City is, good times.

Problems in Chicago

I finally remembered the story I wanted to tell. This one is yet another story which involves the Communist and Welcher, Dave “The General” Stegall. At the time, Dave was living in Chicago. June 18th, 2003, we had tickets to the Pearl Jam concert at the United Center. I got down to Chicago in the afternoon. Admittedly we prepartied quite bit before the concert. We decided to take the “L” to the United Center. The nearest station wasn’t far from Dave’s apartment and we put $5 on a ticket to ride the “L”. At the time, it didn’t dawn on us that it wouldn’t be enough money to get to the concert and back, since a ride on the “L” is $1.50. Some simple sober math would have allowed us to realize that we needed to put $6 on the ticket. But as I said we were drinking a little bit before the concert. We manage to get to the concert with out any real major incidents. Our seats were in the upper level, which at the United Center seems like you are watching the show from Kenosha. Nonetheless, it was a great concert. Dave and I actually continued to imbibe alcoholic beverages in the show. I believe I managed to smuggle in a flask of Captain Morgan’s. This is not a shock to anyone who knows me. After the show we exited the United Center and needed to find the “L” station to get back to Dave’s apartment, and in fact it was a Wednesday, so I actually had to drive back up to Milwaukee and work in Fond du Lac the following day. I thought I knew which direction to go, but it was really foggy, and the addition of alcohol helped me lose my bearings. Yes it was so foggy that we couldn’t see the tallest building in the Midwest. Next thing we knew, we were walking down some street with warehouses on either side and there were no street lights. It looked like the streets that the gang members were hanging out on in the beginning of Michael Jackson’s “Beat It” video. After walking around in what I would consider a bad part of town, we finally found the “L” station. By this time, it was around 1 in the morning and there was no one else around on the entire “L” platform. Dave put in the ticket and walked through the turnstile. Then he handed the ticket back to me. The ticket that only had $0.50 left on it and $1.50 is needed to get through the turnstile. This wasn’t one of those single bar at the waist turnstiles, it was the 7 foot tall with bars every 6 inches and has 4 quadrants like the one shown in the photo. The sides of the turnstile was made of Plexiglas. I put the ticket in and started walking through the turnstile. It clicked once and then didn’t click the second time to let me out and it would not click back the other way to let me out on that side. I was trapped. This is not good. Let me reset the scenario, I was stuck in a turnstile at the “L” station down by the United Center, at 1 in the morning on a now Thursday, Dave is already on the other side and is laughing so hard he is on the verge of losing control of bodily functions. The turnstile would a little bit past the end of the Plexiglas side wall. By a little bit, I mean maybe 6 inches if that. After quickly analyzing the situation I realized the only way out would be to squeeze through this tiny opening. Some how, using mostly adrenaline, I managed to get my head through that space and once my head got through I was able to pull the rest of my body through that same area. I am sure I looked like that guy who can squeeze his entire body through a toilet seat that performs at halftime of Bucks games every once in a while. Once through Dave said to me that there was no way that he could have fit through there. I managed to get back to my house in Milwaukee by 4:30 in the morning. Just enough time to sleep an hour and a half before headed up to Fond du Lac for work.

Have you ever been trapped in a turnstile?
Yes, you aren't the only one, it happens.
No, join AA and reevaluate your life.
I don't care, but I want to see you do the toilet seat trick!

Picture of the Day

Sorry to my loyal readers. I have been real scatter brained the couple of days. My big exam is in 10 days, and I am sort of in full study mode. I had my last refresher course tonight. So after working from 8 until 5, I had 3 hours of class. So unfortunately I am not thinking real clearly as of late. I had two good stories I was going to post, and I forgot what they were. Hopefully I will remember. Because of the lack of pictures as of late here are a couple. These are the last of at least the good Washington D.C. pictures that I had taken back in August of 1999.

Here I am with my finger on top of the Washington Monument. I was walking through the mall there and I saw this family and the father was having his kids pose this way. So I asked him if he would take my picture doing the same thing. He was more than happy to comply.

This is at the Lincoln Memorial. The lady who took this picture for me, her daughter was saying just as they snapped the picture, "Look Mommy, he is telling him a secret." I thought it was kind of funny.
I decided that maybe I shouldn't be joking around at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers. So this is my serious look.

I waited at least 10 minutes to have a stranger take my picture here with no one else in the way. There were a ton of people at this monument.

Just Retire Already

I think it is safe to say that I am a pretty big Packer Fan. I have a picture of Brett Farve up in my living room, and when Antonio Freeman was finally cut I threw a party in honor of the occasion, a party that is now an annual event. But Brett it is time to sh#t or get off the pot. If you can't decide if you want to play or not, it is pretty obvious that you don't. I am sick of hearing that you have decided not to decide. The world doesn't revolve around you. Last I checked, the majority of people that I know don't have the luxuary of being able to retire at 36 and be finacially set for life, I think it is normally somewhere around the age of 63. The Packers are slotted to play at noon for the majority of the season. I am willing to accept that we are going back to the Packers of old. The days when you turned the game off at halftime in frustration and find something better to do with your day. So Brett just retire, all you are doing is tarnishing what was up until this year a great legacy. That is unless you think throwing another 29 interceptions this season will improve your legacy. Bring on Aaron Rodgers, at least this way the Vikings and Bears will have a chance against us. Right Borky?

Should Farve Retire?
Yes, go cut your grass.
No, Aaron Rodgers can't tie his own shoelaces.
Play football? I thought he was an actor.

Whiskey Jars

This weekend I went and caught my friend Brian's Band, Whiskey Jars and Scandals play. Here are some pictures from the show. I also had my sister's 40th birthday party. Which was fun, but the realization that I am only 7+ years behind her is a bit frightening. I might have to grow up on of these years.

What Not To Say To Your Boss

The transportation department at my new job is kind of small. There is 1 head of the department, 2 project managers, 4 project engineers of which I am one, and 1 college intern. Just this afternoon I had a discussion in the hallway with another engineer and the head of the department. This other engineer was signed up to take an Aggregate Sampling training course at the University of Platteville. Since he isn’t going to be out in construction this year, it seemed like a waste for him to go and the class is already paid for, so they asked me if I was interested. Here is the conversation which took place in the hallway so everyone in the department heard it.
Ralph: “So would you have any problems with going to this training?”
Me: “I don’t particularly care for Platteville, but I will go.”
Ralph: “What is wrong with Platteville?”
Me: “Have you ever been there?”
After this comment I began to hear the other engineers laughing from behind their cubicle walls.
Ralph: “What company do you work for?”
Me: “Why? You went there?”
Ralph: “Yes, I went there.”
Me: “Well I commend you on making it out alive, because there is nothing to do there.”

I guess the moral of the story is, do a little research on your boss before you go slamming is alma mater.

Picture of the Day

This picture was taken on October 28th, 1999 at a Holiday Inn, in Baltimore, Maryland. It was when I was done working, and I got back to the hotel and went and worked out. As I was headed back up to my room, the elevator repair man was working on the elevator. I am pretty sure I made some stupid remark about Die Hard and I might have called him John McClaine. Anyhow I grabbed my camera from my room and got a picture. Again I thought it would be a funny picture. I am not sure if it is or not. Anyhow there you go that is the story behind this picture. Tonight is the first night of the Spring Kickball season. I have been playing for quite a few years now. So from time to time on my blog I will be posting a link to the kickball league webpage so you can follow along with me as I strive to reclaim my kickball league home run title. I captured it a couple years ago. But I haven't done so great in the last couple of seasons. I am ready and healthy this year so we will see what happens. I also need to make my readers aware that I might not be putting as much time and effort into my blog as I have in the last month or so. The reason being is that "Brokeback Mountain" just came out on DVD. And you know I was first in line to get it. I have already watched it a half a dozen times. It is a great story, and after a while you don't even realize that this movie is about two guys pounding each other. Plus the scenery is just breath taking. Just an incredible love story. I am still mad that it didn't win best movie. Hopefully you can read into this my sarcasm because I think I am laying it on pretty thick.

Picture of the Day

This picture was taken on June 10th, 2000 at Jacob's Field, Cleveland, Ohio. I spent much of the game walking around the stadium. My seats were on the third base line behind the dugout. As you might be able to guess, this was taken from a deck over looking the centerfield bleachers.
Thumbs up Columbia!!!

This picture was taken July 26th, 2002 at Miller Park, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Me with the Hank Arron Statue in front of Miller Park. From what I recall some people did not like me climbing up there and getting my picture taken. Big deal.
