I received some exciting news this week. My oldest daughter, Natalie, is expecting her first baby sometime in late April or early May. I immediately wanted to add a blog post that captures my initial reactions, but I made myself sit and think for a few days about what I really wanted to say.
I spent my Labor Day weekend tending to some yard work that was in major need of attention. It was really pleasant weather for working outside. Too Pleasant, really. The fact that I wasn't baking in the sun is a reminder that the summer of 2010 is coming to a close whether I like it or not. Soon it'll be time to winterize the Sea-Doo, and break out heavier clothing. I hate colder weather.Don't get me wrong. I like the milder, 80-90 degree weather, but it also means that the lake water is MUCH colder and that pretty much ends my riding season. I suppose I could invest in a shorty wets

About the only sighting of note was a Saleen Mustang near the BOK center in Tulsa, OK.

Becky Garvin contacted me about helping her recently, and we met for the first time last Saturday to get serious about planning.We started the process by going through all 4 years of yearbooks (1988-1991) and making a master name list of anyone that was ever in our class. We certainly don't want to exclude anyone, and I figure the more the merrier. Honestly I didn't graduate there myself. I transferred to El Reno High School around November of my senior year and graduated from there instea
