Hair cut days

As summertime approaches, we take our boys out to get a trim. As you can see, Troup's traditional Springer haircut turned out well. As for Brinkley's military cut...let's just say he's a little sensitive about his bad haircut.

Little Blessings

It's truly amazing how great our God is. Every day He seems to be opening my eyes a little more to His majesty. It just goes to show you that to see Him you don't have to be standing on a mountain top staring down on creation, or at the beach watching the waves. You can be right at home, surrounded by the people you love and know that He is in everything.

Little Rants

I haven't blogged in a while, so I'm going to throw out somethings that have gotten me in a tizzy (even if just a little one) lately.

1. Shopping in the Men's department: Last night, I found a pair of shorts at a great price at the Sports Authority in Irving, TX. Once I got back to my hotel room, I tried them on. Amazingly, even though they were a little bigger than I would buy, they were too small. That's when I found that they were indeed women's shorts.

2. Junk mail: Like a lot of you, I get a good bit of junk mail. I am a junk mail conneseuir at this point and can spot a credit card app a mile away. Every now and then, Ashleigh and I get the same offer, from the same company, on the same day. Last week, one such occurence occurred (he-he) and I immediately went into my disposal routine. That's when I noticed the following on the back of the envelope: "Please Recycle". Grrrrrrr!!!! I've got an idea, how about you don't send that crap out and I won't have to throw it away because that app would still be growing in a forrest somewhere.

3. Presidential Pardons: Ok, not the normal pardons, just the ones given by the media to my current boss. I usually don't wax political, but I've just about had enough. He's everywhere! Just yesterday, ESPN had him on doing a NCAA Bracket. A couple of weeks ago he was at a NBA game. And this, my friends, is celebrated in the media. I would not be nearly as mad if all was fair. Can you imagine if "W" had been seen doing that stuff with the current economic climate??? He'd be grilled on every media outlet there is.

There, I feel better.
