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 yesterday I posted that I was heading out to cut grass. As I got off the computer and started putting on my grass cutting shoes, I got a phone call. We were suppose to be meeting the truck with our fireworks for our stand at 3pm so I had plenty of time to cut grass. Well the phone call was from our youth pastor and he told me the fireworks are being delivered early and we had to be there by 12. So the grass got put off until today when I got home. I was the first night security for watching the fireworks so no one steals any, so I got there by 12 and we unloaded the truck and inventoried everything and set everything up. The crew left at 9pm that night and left me to stay guard. It was a very long night. I did get some company from another guy for about 5 hours so that helped. I left there about 10am this morning got home and started cutting the grass. I want to mention that I have a GREAT WIFE and she helped me out by cutting the backyard while I cut the front. She is a wonderful lady. Well the grass is done for another week and now I am sitting here typing this blog. Oh by the way I want to mention that our fireworks stand is in a Walmart parking lot. That is one store that stays very busy. I was up at 4:30am and there were people going in shopping at that early in the morning. I was just thinking that maybe the doughnuts are fresher that early. Well maybe I will go find out the next time I stay the night. Well y'all have a great day.

Well it has been a while since I blogged and now I am back for a while and I hoped you missed me. Things have been going OK in my world and I have been staying very busy. Let's see what has been going on. My daughters are well into there summer and are busy at church and hanging with friends. The grass continues to grow and needs to be cut every week. The humidity here in TN increases daily and according to the calendar summer just began. It is going to be a long summer. I got a promotion in the National Guard and went from a Sergeant (E-5) to a Staff Sergeant (E-6). I am on a working vacation starting today and I do not go back to work until the 6th of July. My church's youth group is selling fireworks for the next ten days as a fundraiser to raise money to go to Arizona in August.  So as you know I have 2 teenage daughters in this youth group so now you know where I will be working on my vacation. It will be fun and when you deal with the public it will always be interesting. Well I guess it is going to be a very busy summer but as a dad I guess I will do what I need to do to get through it. As I mentioned earlier about the grass, I got to go so I can get started on it. Y'all have a great day.
