Don't people know that this boy is a stinker?!?

Happy 3rd birthday, Boydee!

There is a lot to report from the last few days... Once I get out from under this Golfdom deadline, I will!

In the meantime... Happy 3rd birthday, Boydee!

Evey and Daddy's annual KU football excursion

Thanks to Evey for humoring me... We paid $20 to get in, and left midway through the 2nd quarter to play games at Rick's...

Weekend that was

Does this look like a devil to you?

We were at the Monarch watch place on west campus on Saturday... it was cool that morning so Boyd was wearing his Spider-Man stocking cap. An older lady saw Boyd and said, "Look at that boy! He's wearing a devil mask!"

I said, "It's a Spider-Man mask!"

"Oh," she said.

But then I said, "But a devil mask wouldn't be too inappropriate for him."


Great weekend here. Highlights include the Monarch event; Royals game for Neuty and me; watching a ton of sports; taking the day off on Friday; golfing 9 holes at Eagle Bend; lunch with Adro at 23rd St. Brewery; some good bargains at Love Garden; mowing and the yard looking AWESOME; Evey's room getting cleaned and looking AWESOME; hanging with Judy Saturday; getting a ton of laundry done; getting in 6 miles over the weekend; seeing 213.5 on the scale.

Lowlights include Boydee being occasionally stinky; Adro and I being occasionally grumpy; and the funky smell in the garage.


Picture day is tomorrow! Evey, smile big!


The kids have two Monarchs in cocoons in the house. They should be coming out soon. It's pretty cool... you can see the butterfly all rolled up in the one.

I don't love the butterfly event because parking is crazy, the hallways are too narrow, too many rugrats running around, etc. But I brought a book along and was mostly OK.

But it was nice that the family all did something together. And like I said, the cocoons are cool.

Ninja Warrior vs. Dr. Solar

I just won Royals tickets off Channel 6 News! Whoo-hoo!


Bought a couple Dr. Solar comics off eBay. Four issue, # 10, # 20, # 23 and # 26... all from the late 1960s. Mine for the low, low price of $15.

eBay is awesome. They're reader copies, the best one is in VG condition.


Evey has been doing great at school. I think she went on a run of 5 consecutive days of "off the charts" good behavior. I'm starting to think she might be Mr. Powers' favorite.


Adro's car has a funky smell to it. Probably something Boydee stashed in the car.

Adro was asking Boyd if he knew what it was.

"Mom, I think it's just some stinky fumes," he said.

He turns three next month.


Can you believe this cold snap? Twenty degrees below the average temperature. What a strange weather year.


I've been trying to get into better shape lately. Been trying to eat right, and working out a little. I ran 10 miles last week, and I've ran 6 miles this week. Lifting weights intermittently, too. I've lost 5 pounds so far.

If I could lose another 5 or 10, I'd be thrilled. Started out at 222, currently 217.


Caught the Chevelle concert on Tuesday night with Joe and his buddy Scott. Good times. At the Uptown Theater.

Last time I saw them was over ten years ago. I know this because I was with my friend John Wake, who has been dead for... 11 years now?


Had a dream about my Dad last night. I was carrying luggage into a hotel room, or something. The best par tof the dream was, when he walked in, I just walked over and gave him a big ol' hug. The rest of the dream was random BS, but that part was cool.
