About Me

I am a Dad to two beautiful girls and a husband to a very gorgeous wife. I am very proud of my family and the way they give me so much support. I guess I do not need to win the lottery, I have already won.

Well I have been painting in my daughters bedroom the last 2 nights and I am feeling my age. You ever notice when you are painting how little things start hurting, say for instance your knees hurt from getting up and down. You feel more tired when you are done also and you realize you just don't like painting. I use to paint for a living when I worked in Pa. and I use to love it. I use to like to see the room just change before your eyes and the way the room looks so clean and bright when you are finished. I have just come to the realization that I just don't like to do it anymore. I am feeling it today in my knees and my foot, they just hurt and I think know matter how in shape you are it will get to you. So to all you painters out there who do it for a living thank you for doing what you do. I also believe that like the ministry there are jobs out there that take a special calling and painting is one, roofing, drywall hangers and mudders and most of all septic tank cleaners. Well I guess God has a calling for all of us and I am glad He called you to this ministry and not me. I will stick with the military and getting shot at lol. Y'all have a good day.

And then the fight started.When I got home last night, my wife demanded that I take her someplace expensive....so, I took her to a gas station and then the fight started....

I rear-ended a car this morning. So, there we were alongside the road and slowly the other driver got out of his car. You know how sometimes you just get soooo stressed and little things just seem funny? Yeah, well I couldn't believe it.... he was a DWARF!!! He stormed over to my car, looked up at me, and shouted,'I AM NOT HAPPY!!!' So, I looked down at him and said, 'Well, then which one are you? And then the fight started.....

My wife and I were sitting at a table at my high school reunion, and I kept staring at a drunken lady swigging her drink as she sat alone at a nearby table. My wife asked, 'Do you know her? 'Yes,' I sighed, 'She's my old girlfriend. I understand she took to drinking right after we split up those many years ago, and I hear she hasn't been sober since. 'My gosh!' says my wife, 'Who would think a person could go on celebrating that long?' And then the fight started.....

Just remember to laugh and you will see how good it makes you feel inside.

I have been going to the YMCA now for close to 2 years and I can still remember the time I started at 5 am. I remember just making casual conversation among the people there and how things just seem to come about. I remember the first time I was asked to go running with the guys in there group on Monday's and Wednesday's. Things sure change and how they have all become good friends and how they know when you are not there or not. As you know my foot has been hurting and so I let some of my friends there know about it and it is amazing how they care and ask you about your problem. I met some great guys and ladies at the Y and I am real glad that I am apart of that group. You know we all have close friends and then we have friends who we only see once in a while, well I got some good friends. Thanks to all my fellow friends at the Y and let's continue to take care of one another.

I am doing this small business management course and right now I am doing a class in Excell 2007. I have been doing real good in it until last night. I was doing one of my homework assignments and I got stumped. I had to figure out this problem and I even went back to the book to figure it out and tried everything and nothing worked. I was on and still on this one problem and it is the last one I need to turn my homework in. I stayed at this for at least 3 hours last night and I was ready to scream. I had a bright idea that I will call the school and get some assistance, so I called and guess what, all the operators were busy all 4 times I called. I finally just shut the computer down and said fooey on it and went and got ready for bed. I will tackle it again tonight when I get home. The moral of the story is take a break before you go crazy.

Starting Over

You ever have an injury and you can't wait for it to get better. Well I have one of those injuries in my foot. I stayed off of running for a while so it could heal up and so I have not done a lot at the gym. Well it was feeling better so I went and did the sports conditioning class at the YMCA and now I irritated it and my foot is real sore. I wonder if something or telling me to slow down and that I am not as young as I use to be. So here we go again and I am not a quitter so I will just slow down again and see what happens. It was a tough weekend for me with a funeral on Saturday of a 24 year old young soldier who fell asleep behind the wheel and he left a 4 year old son behind. Then yesterday going through the tazer class. I was showing some the video that was taken and some people thought it was disturbing and some people laughed. All I know is that I do not have to do it again. Well you all have a great day.

Well today is a day I will never forget. We trained today on how to use the taser and for us to get certified we had to get tazed. I have never felt such a shock in my life and it was the longest 5 seconds I have ever spent with every muscle just tightened up. When it was done I ended up with a severe cramp in my calf muscles but that was it. I am glad I did it but I am also glad that I will not have to do it again. I am certified now. I guess the next step is pepper spray and that is something I am not looking forward too. Well this is my first blog and I hope to keep up with it. I am just glad that I had something interesting to share.
