I don’t feel good. I woke up with a cold and now I am feeling achy.
I have been taking medicine all day. I have been drinking liquids. (Not energy drinks-ha-ha)
I am going to go sit in my lazy boy and watch some TV now and let this medicine kick in.
See you in the funny papers.

Toot toot chugga chugga big red car

Landon loves this!!! So I had to post it..(oh yea.. I think it is so coool too!!!

Time to Change - The Brady Bunch

I was just surfing some "you-tube" and found this.I love this show!!!

The Memphis Bell

Today, during my day off, Landon was not feeling well. He had been battling a stomach virus for a couple of days and that seems to be done, now he has been coughing. The doctor told us to give him Dimetapp, so that is what we have been doing.
So today while Cathy was at work. I was with Landon. After lunch I gave him his medicine and he crawled up on my lap and he was sitting with me. I put in this DVD called the Memphis Bell. This was about the B-17 Flying Fortress bombers of World War II. This was a pretty good movie. After the movie was over, and I laid Landon down for his nap, I decided to look more into the B-17 Flying Fortress. I was really amazed of the fire power and size of one of these planes.
Boy, our grandparents sure new how to build things then.

“Let’s Go Save The World”

Let me start by saying I know Smallville is just a TV show. But sometimes I like to take a “break” from the real world. Some do it with sports, some with gardening and others with reading or video games. Now don’t read into this, I still pray to my Heavenly Father when I need direction or want to give praise. All I am saying is that sometimes I like to be entertained too. So with that being said….

Tonight’s Smallville episode “Justice” was AWESOME!!!! This was, by far, the best one I think I’ve seen. And Yes, I have seen them all, some more then once (ha-ha some more then twice). I know Kayla my sister and Smallville partner is going to be very pleased with this one.

Post Script – Noticed the colors. They are the colors of the “Justice” team.

“Bad-Boys, Bad-Boys What cha Going To Do”

The other night I had the opportunity to ride along side my good friend Mark who is a police officer. He showed me the inner workings of the police station and then took me on patrol with him.
Man this was the coolest thing I think I ever done. Don’t get me wrong I did spend some time in the Armed Forces defending this great nation of ours. But sometimes they don’t let every one in the Army hold a gun. I guess I was part of that “special” Army.
Anyway I want to talk about this one incident. We, ok He got the call about “neighbors heard gun shots” He looked at me and said “this is it”. Man my heart starting beating and my eyes got all big as he headed down the street with lights a blazing. When we got there he parked his car in a tactical position. But as I started to think. That tactical position had me facing the place the “shots” were heard with a direct line of sight (that means I was in front of a possible bullet). As he jumped out the car ready to take on anything that came his way. I was quickly looking for the door handle to roll my body out of the way. I guess I better stick to Ministry. Because we had to stop at the bathroom on our way back to the station.
Anyway “Thanks Mark” it was pretty cool. Can’t wait till next time

Could You Please Pass The Butter

I don’t know why I called this post “could you please pass the butter” I was sitting here at my desk and thought it was funny. But any way on with my post.

In regards to the last post. I highly recommend Charmin. It has not failed me in the many years of service. To me it is like an American Express Card, “Don’t leave home with out it”.

“Run(s)-ning” On Empty

Wow what a week! It seems like everyone is getting this stomach bug that is going around. I know that Brady had it and Landon had it (by the way, they both are feeling better, I guess it had to “Run” its course) I sure hope I don’t get it.
So this post goes out to all of you who are feeling bad. Just try to relax and let it “run” its course.

Happy Birthday Brady

This Wednesday is Brady's 12th birthday. So Sunday night he had some friends stay the night and they had cake and ice cream, played video games and such and had a good time. He is fast asleep now dreaming of next years big birthday. Cathy and I are truly blessed to have him in our lives. He is your typical pre-teen, and I wouldn't change him for anything.

“You Play Like a Girl”!!!...... (If you’re good enough)

I like to take this time to give a “shout –out” to my good friend Kayla.
One heck of a softball player. In fact, she earned herself a scholarship to play on the college level. “You Go Girl!!”
A lot of times I write on my blog and I make a lot of goofy post. But I thought I would take just a moment and say “Hey" to my "Smallville Partner”.

Post Script: This Thursday night's Smallville episode is "Justice" and in the words of the Green Arrow.
"Let's go save the world"

Band Of Brothers

I was checking out a TV show on the History Channel Called “Band of Brothers,” it was pretty good, it was about WW2.
Anyway at the very end of the show, they interviewed the real soldiers, and this one guy talked about The St. Crispen’s day speech from Henry V and I thought I would blog an excerpt here. Why, because I like it.

This story shall the good man teach his son; And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by, From this day to the ending of the world, But we in it shall be remembered- We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; For he to-day that sheds his blood with me Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile, This day shall gentle his condition; And gentlemen in England now-a-bed Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here, And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.

I Will Do Anything for Love - But I Won’t Do That

Ok, I am not one to complain openly, but; since this is my blog and it is 11:40 at night, I owe it to myself to get this off my chest.
What is so hard about giving up an hour of your life for service to the Lord? Seriously, I don’t get it! Why do you have to twist people’s arms to get some help within the church? I don’t know who reads this blog but if you do and you happen to volunteer at your church or our church.. Thank You!! And disregard this comment. But if you are reading this blog and you are not giving yourself to serve in some aspect of the church, then shame on you.
So please, make your self a New Year’s resolution that isn’t the same ole “lose weight”, “stop smoking” yadda – yadda – yadda- bologna!! Enhance your church experience, Volunteer.
