In the summer of 2006, I was working with a youth group and took them to Cleveland for a work trip. During that week, we worked with Habitat for Humanity, served in a homeless shelter and lived in "intentional community". (That means we gave up junk food, sodas and flip phones, saving parents roughly $300 … Continue reading Cleveland ROCKS!
This is not a post about Kenny. It's a post about Alice, and her restaurant. Not really. *** My dad was not a funny man. I take that back. He was not funny when he tried to be. He was not the guy at the party who would hold court, telling stories and jokes, everyone … Continue reading You Picked a Fine Time…
So, I love my doctor. The guy is great. I've seen him pretty much since we moved to Georgia, and I love the guy. Calls it like he sees it and has a great sense of humor.

It was a two-story building and a with a balcony. If I got a seat at the railing, I could see every television in the place. … Continue reading Take THAT!
20 years ago, the most beautiful set of blue eyes I have ever seen said to me, "I do". Since then, wherever we have been, as long as I've been able to look into those eyes, I have been home. We have added three more sets of those eyes over the years, and anywhere I've … Continue reading Home
Last week I wrote about Roger Staubach and visiting the NFL Hall of Fame. The event was amazing, and I felt like a kid again walking through the museum. As I mentioned I grew up a Steelers fan and was eight years old again when I saw the bust of Mean Joe Greene. How I … Continue reading Hall of Fame and Heroes
