on sunday the 13th, bama will participate in the running of the weiners in germantown, tn. as a family, we're very excited. we're mainly excited due to the large amount of laughter and entertainment that he will embody. we are hoping for a strong showing, but who knows with bama. here is a photo of the future weiner race champion:
yesterday, laura and i had a "craft day". laura is working on a new creative item that i'm sure she'll talk about on her blog, and i was working on some paintings that i've needed to do for a while. two of the paintings are for our new apartment to go over our bed, one is for a friend, & the last is for a very special upcoming birthday. here are some shots of a fun craft day with my beautiful wifey...
recently, my wife made a post related to a "wish list" of things that she would like to have for our new apartment. so, here is my wish list...
1. tiger woods pga tour 2010: due to the fact that golf is extraordinarily expensive these days, i would like to cut costs by purchasing this wii game. this $39.95 would end up saving several hundred dollars in golf expenses...its logic.
2. ping g10 driver: if for some reason the above purchase does not occur then this item is a necessity. my old driver is exactly that....old. and...i just want it.
3. imac (24 inch) desktop: we are about to move into an apartment that actually has a desk and both of us have laptop computers & i've always wanted to have a mac desktop computer, so...i believe this would solve that problem, completely.
4. 1970 ford bronco: during an "off day" lunch with laura's work associates (regina & haley), we ran across this beauty and it reminded me of how much i have wanted one of these. in the parking lot of young avenue deli (an amazing deli place in midtown), i walked across this gem & this is my final item on my wish list....
these are pretty reasonable requests, right?
yesterday morning, i awoke with the sun and traveled to searcy, arkansas to help my brother & his fiance move into "their" new apartment. no, no, no...they are not "shackin" up pre-marital style, but my brother has been allowed to move in early & live there alone until novemeber when they get married... anyway, i went to help my attention deficit brother move and the process ended up being quite an adventure. when i arrived at his old apartment, i was expecting things to be packed and ready to go, but to my surprise this is what i found...
absolutely nothing packed...and
dirty dishes stacked in the sink...and
piles of dirty clothes....and
did i say absolutely nothing packed?!
needless to say, we had a lot of work to do. i started at 10:00 am & we did not finish all of our projects until 3:00 am. during this long 17 hour day, donny and i:
