Marks pretty boring blog.

Useless meanderings and observations from a broken down old snake keeper.

  1. Wow, it's been a while.

    Geez, it's been at least two years since I've posted anything here. Actually I kind of just plain forgot about it. I should probably post a few things here and there. I'm still at the same job, currently working 10 hour days on Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays but then I have the rest of the week off. It's the first time in amost a year that I actually have some time off on the weekend. I've been riding my motorcycle in every day now for the past three weeks. I picked up a new jacket ...

  2. Still pretty boring.

    I haven't been around for a while, still getting used to my new shift at work I guess. I'm now working Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 7:00PM until 5:00AM, the money is pretty good, with the time and a half for Sundays and a 10% shift differential for working off hours, it's like getting paid for 49 hours for a 40 hour week. It's like getting a 25% raise, the down side of course is that it really messes up your internal clock. I actually love working those hours, there's actually more ...

  3. State fair 2

    I couldn't' get all the pictures on one post so I split them up. Here is the continuation.

    Across the way from Monty's , the Minnesota Herp Society has a display of native herps in the DNR building. I usually get some free tickets every year because I usually sign up to check on the animals to make sure water is filled and the displays are clean. I didn't do it this year though because I didn't know for sure if I was going to be able to make it.

  4. State Fair

    by , 09-08-2010 at 03:16 PM (Marks pretty boring blog.)
    I got a text message the other day from my friend Rudd McCLory saying that he was in town helping out his friend Monty at the state fair. Monty Krizan has had his 'Monty's traveling reptile show' out at the state fair for more years then I can remember. Rudd used to be his neighbor when he lived in California and he'll fly out sometimes during the fair to help out. So I went out to the fair this past Sunday to see if I could meet up with Rudd, well Rudd had gone out on the town with Monty that ...

  5. Saturday

    Well, looks like vacation is pretty much over. I start back at work again tomorrow evening. Got a lot of stuff done today though, I cleaned one of my yearling racks and all the tubs for this years hatchlings. I've got 47 babies so far for this year with one more clutch in the incubator. I wish I'd gotten a little better odds this year, once again I whiffed on producing a clown, didn't get any eggs from pieds and only hatched one albino. I did hatch one that I was pretty excited about, but it ...
