Random Thoughts

  • I had a good workout yesterday. Still working on my bikini bod. You’ve heard of continental drift? Well, I think that is happening to me. It seems like things on my body are moving into new locations – places they are not supposed to be.

  • Got up and took a run this morning about 7:00 AM. After that I went to Starbucks, bought a cup of coffee with a gift card given to me by SK & DK, and read the morning paper. Good way to start the day.

  • I’m thinking about buying a generator and 3 window air conditioners. All these storms popping up in the Gulf has got me kinda freaked out. I want to be ready should a hurricane hit our area again. I know one thing – I’m not going to endure 2 ½ weeks of no power and no a/c again. I’ll go into hock if I have to.

  • I never go to public pools and water theme parks. Swimming in a soup of other peoples DNA is no fun to me. The next time I want to be marinated in a stew of scabs, staph, and missing Band-Aids, I’ll go to a water park and pay $50 bucks for the pleasure.

  • Before I met Christ, phonics was about the only thing I wasn’t hooked on.

  • Since my wife won’t allow me to get a tat, I’m thinking of taking a parachute jump. I was 20 years old when I last jumped and would like to try it again. I need to get my heart racing.

  • I bought a Jethro Tull CD the other day. I still get into Locomotive Breath.

  • An empty nest is in our future. Works for me!

  • I am experiencing spiritual warfare right now. Have been for a while. This is to be expected and I welcome it beause it means the devil is ticked off! I can deal with it too - because I know people are praying for me and I’m grounded in the Word.

  • Saw Batman. Good movie. What I like about the current Batman character is that he has no “super powers” but still takes care of business. Heath Ledger (the Joker) was everything you have heard.

  • I am pumped up about our church. It’s the middle of summer and our church is still growing! Four people committed to Christ last Sunday. Plus, our second service has never been better attended. It is growing too – there was 175 in second service last week.'

  • We have a cat. While I’m not physic or anything, I have a feeling it’s going to come up missing.

  • Renae is going to be gone next week to youth camp with the teenagers. I’m already having withdrawals. Can’t wait for her to get back and she hasn’t even left yet! Hey, I know. Maybe my two boys will come up missing along with the cat.
