Saw the pics. Looks like a great time.

That's good news! I would expect nothing less from a magical fruit.

Doc and I talked up quite a storm. As usual it came down to a bad cab driver.

There's a lot of truth right there.

I try to be realistic about things though. After the summer we had, I'm glad to be in the position we're in right now. It could have been much, much worse.

You certainly did. I had a hard time following who did what though. I take it the random blond girls are gone now?

I think somebody said the monster truckers got a U turn. How did they end up doing?

That picture was taken just before he was tackled and cuffed.

Stopher! Glad you enjoyed the cruise.
But, at least it was Notre Dame jail, lol

We went to see it a few months ago.... Awesome show.

It's a little different than the movie. We really liked it though....

You will enjoy it.

Don, thanks for all you have done building this little clubhouse. I still owe you a beverage. Randall, congratulations, I think. Your first new place looks good.

Went to the Doctors and things were doing just OK. Long story short, he thought about checking me into the hospital to run some tests. Talked him out of it and after a few visits to his office and in house tests, adjusting the drugs, things are much better. Still here kicking.

Celebrating my non hospital stay by going to the Keys tomorrow. May dive but not sure right now. Norm, you can't say anything because you are at the World right now. You have me beat.

I know I have missed Jason and Ryan's birthday (hope they were good ones) and I am sure other stuff. Thoughts to those in need, pats on the back for those who should be congratulated.
Thanks, CJ... and I hope you are feeling better!

Since we homeschool I do teach my daughters but no one else. I have a 3rd degree black belt in TKD and. 2nd in Hapkido.

I don't think we have an ATA school in Indy anymore. We invited them to a tournament once and it was great, they brought something like 30 students!
That's a lot of dedication there. Remind me not to get you POd.

We have ATA here and had DD taking a few classes this summer through a Groupon listing. The folks running the show are good... but the sessions were only 30 minutes long, they were short staffed, and DD barely learned anything in the short time they had (between stretches at the front and end of sessions). Too costly for the amount of learning she received. We won't be back there any time soon.

Still had a good time and even got a turkey leg out of the deal, but for the price of a 1 day WDW tickets it was a bit disappointing.

Matt
Oh man... yeah... I could have givin you a heads up on that. We have not stayed past 6pm, but thankfully we have the season pass and it's not a big deal for us to only spend a few hours there.

Wow. Finally all caught up. Had no idea the old thread was closed and the new one started!! Good thing Randall was here to keep things going.... great job, Randall!

Been a busy week. Checked out the local indoor go-cart place with DD on Thurs night. Had a blast! 3 races for me... 2 for DD. I ended up taking the 6th fastest time for the day on my first visit. Not too shabby. DD LOVED it and begging me to get a membership there now. I think I've created a speed demon here

Friday was a quarterly meeting within our department... about 200 folks in attendance. Boring updates.... mandatory stuff coming. Good thing s was the meeting was only 1/2 day. So grabbed the golf clubs and hit the local TPC course for 18. Beautiful day. Too bad my score didn't reflect it.

Then this weekend I got the chance to go skeet shooting for the second time ever. I think I have found a new hobby. Feels great to be able to blow stuff up as it's flying through the sky

ok... back to work. Only took me a few hours to get through the 20+ pages this morning. Sheesh.

Morning all. Busy weekend here geting the house ready fro the twin's birthday party in a couple of weeks. Last night DS stumbled off a curb and took a header. He was responsive last night but had a headache. He still had it this morning when he woke up. So, today is just a chill day.

I was hoping it was just allergies, but it sounds like it is evolving into something more.
Hope you guys are feeling better today.
