    Harleys are okay... but I prefer to be able to get away from the rabble...




  • 26 Years Ago Today...

    .... and I'm ready for another 26 years.

     

    I had to work late this evening, so nothing special we just let the kids decide where to eat dinner and then we just had family game night. Some of the folks at work were like; "I would have said I'm not working" and other such nonsense. Hell, during the 8 years we were married of my 12 years active duty I was only home for 3 anniversaries. At least now I'm home, albeit a bit late.

  • Re: Probably not a popular opinion...but I'll say it anyway.

    Fat shaming? WTF? Man if I suffered from that I'd be a sobbing quivering mess... instead I recognize that pretty much anyone with eyes can see that my 340lbs (in my skivvies, after taking that morning leak and before I've even put a toothbrush in my mouth) is not exactly my ideal weight for my height.

    Now I certainly don't condone people who constantly attack others based solely on personal traits... but damn... there appears to be some pretty thin skin out there. Damn... now I'm all worked up and feel the need to eat some awesome food cooked on my BGE. Wait... I don't need to be worked up to want that. :grin:

    It's a done deal...



  • The Best Father's Day Gift EVER



    Well, it turns out that my Father's Day gift will come to me on Monday instead of Sunday. Even so, it will the BEST Father's Day gift I could have gotten.

    As many of you know we have had a foster child that we've been hoping to adopt for a couple of years now. Monday morning we are due in court to finalize her adoption. We are planning a HUGE welcome to the family party for which members of our family are coming from all over the U.S. to celebrate. It's been a long emotional roller coaster for us. The emotionally draining process has been twice as long for her as she has been in the system for over four years. Here are some pictures of her time as a foster daughter with us.

    This first pic was taken the day after she came to us...
     



     






    This photo is a serendipitous photo taken while we were trying to get a decent pic for our invitation to the party... it has become my favorite pic of our kids.


    The invitation...


    It has been a truly heart wrenching experience this time through. So much so that, for now, we have decided to close our home to fostering. At least until she works through the jealousy issues. Once she can handle other children getting our attention we'll consider fostering again.
