Good Times Ahead

Well, I just got back from losing another softball game. Our team is pretty poor. Somehow we find a way to lose every game. It is quite amazing.

Well enough of that. I have a lot to look forward to. I actually have Friday off, and my wife and I are going on vacation to celebrate our anniversary that was June 14. It will be a nice 4 day weekend. Relaxation, here I come.

After we get back, I have some other great stuff happening in my life. Brittany's mom, and one of her sisters are coming to visit us for a couple days. It will be a great time. We don't get to see Brittany's family often, so it is always a real treat to see them and spend time with them. I am really blessed to have married into their family.

The day Brittany's mom and sis leave, Brittany's other sister Echo is coming to visit. Echo's husband Brian will also be coming. Brian is a great guy. Him and I have a lot of fun together. We are a lot alike, and also can talk about how life is being married to a Mellott girl. Brian will be playing in a golf tournament with me, so that will be fun.

That brings me to more fun news. My sister and her husband will also be coming down to hang in St. Louis the same weekend. Javier and Stephanie are great and miss them. They live in Iowa so it will be great to see them as well. My sister Stephanie is the bomb, and she married a stud in Javier. Javier will also being playing in the tournament with us.

Last, but not least my boy Hags will also be joining us here in St. Louis for the tournament. Enough can not be said about my boy Hags. He is the man, and I miss hanging with him. Chris is actually getting married in August to a wonderful girl, her name is Amanda. Hags will be rounding out our foursome for the tourney, and is also our strongest player.

If you are wondering what tournament, I am glad you asked. This will be the 2nd annual Gregg Enderle Memorial. My step brother Gregg died a few years back of a heart attack at a very young age. His brother have started up this golf tournament that raises money for the American Heart Association. It was a great tourney this year, and looks to be far better this year. The tournament is July 9th. If you would like to play in it or donate to the foundation, please let me know as soon as possible. It would be great to have you play or have you donate.

Well, that is it for now. I have to go pack. I am very excited about my next week and a half.

Today Was A Pretty Good Day

Today was a pretty good day. Work went fairly well. One of our customers is probably going to be giving us a ton of business before the holiday, so things will probably be crazy this week. Today while I was at work I got to watch my friends discuss how they believe Billy Graham has some whacked theology, and how one of my friends will no longer give his ministry anymore money because Graham said he was a democrat. I have never seen the quotes, so I can't comment on it myself, but I would be disappointed to find out Billy was a democrat.

After work I grilled some steaks, and I must admit tonight was one of my better efforts. They were very good. My wife and I then discussed our plans for this weekend, and what we would like to do. We will be in the Ozarks this weekend at the Tantara resort. We are very excited. We have never been there before, and we have heard great things. We shall see.

That is it for now. I only have an hour or so before bed, so I am going to read. Have a good night everyone.

It is so hot outside. You walk outside for two seconds and you are sweating. The humidity in St. Louis is out of control. I'm going to sit by my pool now. I need a cold beer.

Some people have been asking if I am still alive because I have not posted anything for some time. I am still alive. Everyone can now quit being so worried.

Word to all my peeps.

Anniversary #2

Today is my second anniversary. I remember two years ago watching my wife come down the aisle. She was beautiful. It has been a great year. We have both learned a lot about each other, and ourselves. Brittany is more beautiful to me than she was two years ago. Her smile and laugh makes me smile. Her laugh gives me energy and reminds me to not be so serious all the time. Her eyes still melt me. She is my melody and my harmony, all in one.

I love my wife.

Safe Drivers

On May 27 I had a post titled "Who Are The Worst Drivers". In that post I commented on how people were always dogging me because I am from Iowa, and talking about how bad Iowa drivers are.

Here in just another article proving everyone wrong. The Iowa driving jokes can stop now.

2 in the top 10. Not too bad.

One Of Many Reasons

Here is a horrible story. This story is an example of one of the many reasons why my children would never attend a day care.

Is This A Great Country Or What?

It doesn't get any better than this: Jessie Jackson has added former Chicago Democrat congressman Mel Reynolds to Rainbow/PUSH Coalition's payroll. Reynolds was among the 176 criminals excused in President Clinton's last-minute forgiveness spree. Reynolds received a commutation of his six-and-a-half-year federal sentence for 15 convictions of wire fraud, bank fraud and lies to the Federal Election Commission. He is more notorious, however, for concurrently serving five years for sleeping with an underage campaign volunteer. This is a first in American politics: An ex-congressman who had sex with a subordinate .. won clemency from a president who had sex with a subordinate... then was hired by a clergyman who had sex with a subordinate. His new job? Youth counselor. IS THIS A GREAT COUNTRY OR WHAT?

Just Got Back

I just got back from golfing, and let me tell you how good it feels to be in the air conditioning. It is a hot one today. I shot a 98. Not great, but not too bad. At least I am getting better. It was a nice looking course.

Luna Bar

I have a question. I eat a lot of Luna Bars for breakfast. Now a Luna Bar is what they call a "Whole Nutrition Bar for Women". Do you think this is doing something crazy to my body? Is my chest going to start growing or something? What does this all really mean?

Talk to me.

Great Advice

I am approaching my 2nd wedding anniversary on June 14th. Being married is a great thing, especially if you are married to a woman as great as my wife. Marriage is something you really have to work at, but it is a great thing.

I love the advice that this old couple gives. Check out this story. This is what I call "living life together". Awesome.
