Gifts For Dads: Brass Knuckle Meat Tenderizer

    Steak is good right? But sometimes (all the time in my case) you don’t want to pay these ridiculous prices they’re charging nowadays. I mean, have you seen the meat counter at your local market? Highway robbery I tell ya. So I will get a cheaper cut of meat, which is nice. However, …

Around Trinidad: Coke Ovens of Cokedale

Just outside Trinidad, Colorado is a place called Cokedale. It is now a little tiny place with less than 200 residents but in it’s heyday it was a virtual metropolis with 1500 folk. It was a company town created by the American Smelting And Refining Company and they mined them some coal. Now I am not …

In our house here in Trinidad, Colorado we have no dishwasher, we are doing things the old fashioned way. And by things I mean dishes. It’s not really as bad as I thought it was going to be. I’ve had an automatic dishwasher in my residences for the past 12 years and it’s been pretty …

George Simpson Is Resting Up On The Hill

Simpson’s Rest is one of the most recognizable sights here in Trinidad. It is home to the Trinidad sign which is lit up at night as a beacon to weary travelers and what-have-you. It is also the forever home to one George Simpson, whom it’s named after. I never gave much thought to why it …

I just wanted to drop on by my little blog and share the news that we’ll be moving into the pictured house in just a few days! It’s in a little town in southern Colorado called Trinidad. The population is less than 10,000 so it’s going to be a little different from in the Denver …

Pants Down Don’t Poop

Oh man, my two kids both really love to play the pants up, pants down game. When they do I’m like, “Pants down, don’t Poop.” Eliza is past her floor pooping phase but Henry here, he’ll drop a steamer every once in a while. You know what’s gross? When I pick up a fresh turd …

Well it’s that time of year when we (me) here at Stay At Home Brad get down to business. This business is a test and review of Just For Men Autostop. Now, when I agreed to review this I for some reason thought it was the beard gel I did in the past. I was …

Candy Cane As An Alternative

A Christmas Story gun replaced by a candy cane

    Here’s a new version of the classic holiday film A Christmas Story, at least a new version of one frame from it. You see, I have secretly replaced the Red Ryder BB gun with a Big Ass Candy Cane. It’s still manufactured by the Red Ryder company, you may note. This BACC can …

Brad’s Three Beards of November

So I cut off my beard on November. I’m not an official member of Movember and am not raising money for male health awareness or whatever. I just thought it was a good time to get my ol’ itch maker outta here for a bit and see what was under it. I started growing my …

What A Difference Over 3 Years Makes #flashbackfriday

  Here’s a little picture I put together of Eliza on the day she was born, over three years ago, and today. In both of them she’s holding her mom’s hand. What a difference over 3 years makes, right? She was so dang tiny way back then. Just look how her entire hand was easily …

She’s A Little Bit Grumpy

Remember a few days ago when I posted about how sometimes (all of the times) there’s yelling, screaming, and crying going on over here? Well here’s a little video showing some of it in action. It’s one thing for me to type here and you to read it, it’s another thing to see/hear it. You can’t …

Darth Vader Christmas Decoration and Southwest Plaza Mall Renovation

Saw this yesterday at the Sears in Southwest Plaza mall in Littleton, CO. Who knew Darth Vader celebrated Christmas? You learn something new every day I suppose. If you’re from the same place as where I live, you also might be interested to know that the Southwest Plaza renovations are underway. It’s pretty crazy in there …

Yelling, Screaming, And Crying

I don’t know if it’s normal or not, but over here at the Casa De Stay At Home Brad there’s a lot of yelling, screaming, and crying that goes on. Sometimes it’s warranted, like just yesterday Hank shut Eliza’s fingers in a drawer. That’s a cryin’. But mostly it’s something that’s not really something. Like …

You’re Gonna Take a Picture With Me Whether You Like It Or Not

  I was making photos of them both individually but then Eliza decided I should take one with both of them in it. So she grabbed Henry by the neck and brung him over. It’s a touching family photo we’ll treasure always. I’m thinking about having it enlarged and hung on the wall. It’s true …

Massive Headwound Henry

  Hey look, it’s massive headwound Henry. You know, like massive headwound Harry from Saturday Night Live (SNL). Remember that one? He laid on the couch and the dog ate his scab right off, and it was hilarious. So this reminded me of that. If you were to look closer at little Henry’s head you …
