Getta your tootsie-fruitsie ice cream!

As a family, we watched the Marx Brothers in "A Day at the Races" last night. I love those old movies and I think it's important to expose the kids to them. The humor in them is so pure. Some innuendo that goes over the heads of the kids, but for the most part its Groucho's snarky sarcasm, Chico's scamming and broken/bad English, and of course Harpo's physical and facial gymnastics. They're all masters and I laugh till my sides hurt every time I watch them.

Went to Metrobrook Church for service this week. Quite refreshing to see what a vibrant, urban church is doing. Lot's of servants doing God's work in the inner city.

Feeling that nice weather brain bloc. Gotta go shoot some hoops with Sar!

Gone but not Forgotten

Well, since I've managed to find every reason under the sun not to write for the last few weeks, I thought I'd post and try and rekindle something...anything.

It's been a brutal winter and now is turning into a brutal spring. I know it goes "April showers..." and all that, but why do they have to be accompanied by 40 degree cloudy days? It's killin' me.

On the upside, I did go out and get a new fishing reel and license today. Ever looking forward to the chance to wet a line, I thought I'd at least be prepared if the situation arises.

What is it about people at Wal Mart? Is it a shopping requirement to be 40 lbs overweight and dress as badly as you can to shop there? I've even seen people in their pajama bottoms. Nice. Real nice. Maybe it's just because it's become the new K-Mart and this is just the bottom of the barrel. People nonetheless, but don't people have any dignity anymore? It's sad really. I hate shopping there. Unfortunately it's 10 minutes closer than any other dept. store.

I'm seeing snow flurries out my window right now. It's April 11th. Lord, have Mercy.

I saw an extremely inspirational video this past week from a man diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. It can be viewed at;

The guy puts everything in perspective very nicely. Things are unimportant, people are. Life is short. Live your dreams, that sort of thing.

Gotta run for now. Man when I have the time, I'm uninspired. When I'm inspired, I don't have the time of the kids are on the 'puter. Cest la vie.
