Maddie

What a great little girl! I haven't seen Maddie in too long, but if I remember right she has the best laugh in the world and a pretty bitchin' Dad!

She's a sweet girl with the best "uncles" ever.

Ya know, what a guy could do is...

I'm super jealous of Hootis for getting to run this beast, but he deserves it for his work with Pioneer Days.

So, how do I get in on that??

I have a crush on her

JDRF

Alright, I will stop posting Wilford Brimley stuff for a while.

On a serious note though, I do think that the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation is a very worthy cause for all of us to donate to. I don't believe this just because I have Juvenile Onset Diabetes, but because if we can contribute to a cure we can prevent others from going through a really tough experience in their childhood. This is very close to my heart because I don't ever want to see another child deal with this disease.

You can go to the following link and make an anonymous donation if you wish:

I know that times are tough for everyone, so do whatever you can. Contemplate what it would take for you to cut back $15 this month... If we all did that it would be a huge contribution to a cure for Type 1 Diabetes.

On behalf of all Type 1's, I want to thank you all in advance.

Cheers!

You make me laugh!

Ice Ice Baby

Not sure what I did to deserve this, but after waking up way too early (especially for being unemployed) in the fetal position and clutching my lower back in extreme pain, I have been glued to my ice pack all day. Hopefully by numbing it all day I will feel better tomorrow. Wish me luck.

You Tell 'Em Wilford

Bring Back the Swasi!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swastika

Educate yourself!

I need to clarify something here. I by no means condone the use of a swastika in any sort of a racist way. I just believe that we should not let a symbol (that was used by multiple religions in multiple positive ways) be a sign for one horrific act. I think that if we use this symbol in a positive way, as it was intended, we can take back the hate that was surrounded by it.

If you let this symbol be about hate then that is all it will ever be. By reclaiming it as a symbol of religion and peace you are taking it back. I have no intention of downplaying what it meant 70 years ago. I also don't want to discredit the lives of the people that had to suffer through the times when it represented hate.

Again, anyone that knows me knows how sensitive I am to race/religion/gender/sexual orientation issues so don't take it wrong. I just think that we need to take the power back as far as this symbol goes.

So ask questions the next time you see someone wearing this before you jump to a conclusion about their beliefs.

Troy vs. Wild

Clint vs. Wild


Since Brian couldn't make it we all drank beer out of a bucket in his honor...






Our FAVORITE bar!

Grandpa Jerry even played his squeezebox for us!

Not sure what's going on here.

Wrestling in the back of a truck seemed like a good idea.


In our new matching and free sweatshirts.

Troy loved his after bar potato salad.

Last Tower bonfire of the year!
