Big Change #1

I was talking about change...

Here is the first big one. Meet Owen.
See Kathi's blog here for more.

It's Thursday

This morning I drove to work in the snow. Very cool (pun intended).

I love snow. To have it this late in the season was an exceptional little suprise.

There were a bunch of cars coming off side roads that had two to three inches of snow piled on the roof and hood. They must have been up in the surrounding hills.

By the way I will announce one "change" that is taking place today. I can't say right now but it is a fun one. And one that will surprise a lot of peoples.

New Toy

I bought this...
This being the Sig Sauer P232.

As perfectly described on Sig Sauer's website:
The SIG SAUER® P232 is our smallest and lightest pistol. Chambered in .380ACP and featuring a fixed barrel blowback action, the P232 is one of the most reliable back-up pistols available with a well-earned reputation as a rugged, accurate shooter. Its proven design of perfect balance, smooth contours and rounded, snag-free edges make it ideal for personal protection. It’s the pistol’s small size that makes it easy to carry concealed whether in a discreet holster, purse or on the ankle and yet the outstanding ergonomics of the grip design allow for comfortable shooting even in large hands. At under 18oz in the Blued version, the sleek single-stack P232 is a pleasure to carry throughout the day. No wonder it’s one of the premier off-duty guns carried by federal agents and law enforcement professionals today.
It is being shipped from Texas and I should have it by the end of the week.

Change is Coming!

I am not sure in what form but there is some change coming. Soon, I hope.

I've been at my current job for about 10 years. Maybe it's that..

I'm lopsided with one tattoo on my right shoulder. Maybe it's time for #2...

My Camry is celebrating 13 years on the road. Anyone got some cash I could have for an Acura TL?

My Buell has rested for 2 years. Maybe a sunny day is near...

We've lived in this neighborhood for 7ish years. Who knows...

Adopt a kid?



I think change is coming.

Praying. Hoping. Expecting. Anticipating.

Trace Adkins is one of my favorite people. He seems to be a kind, soft spoken gentleman.

I am not much of a country fan but I have enjoyed watching him play Celebrity Apprentice.

Cool Movies Are Coming

This is the time of year that my anticipation level is very high. The anticipation is for cool movies. I thought I knew about all of the movies coming out. Movies like The Dark Knight, Prince Caspian, Ironman, Speed Racer, etc. There is one that eluded me until today.

I know what you are thinking. The Hulk movie came out years ago and it sucked. As true as that is it doesn't diminish the fact that they've made another.

What makes this cooler is that it stars Edward Norton. Ed is awesome. I am as excited to see him play Bruce Banner as I am to see Robert Downey Jr. play Anthony Stark.

What movie are you anticipating?

A Bit of Randomness

Why don't women shave their arms?

Last night I had a dream that I was shopping for a hat, with Carol Burnett, for my nephew Ben.

In the dream I had shaggy bleach blond hair that looked like a fat mop on my head.

I'd like to win tonights lottery.

Work is a four letter word.

My dad's birthday card (which was a good one) is in US Postal limbo.

Friday is coming. (Isn't it Ashby?)

I cannot wait until Ironman is out.

This line is stuck in my head "Can I get a napkin please?" Thanks to this video.
