Fast (Food) Gratification

After a recent trip to our nearest fast food joint ... Arby's, I realized that they really must not understand why people go to Fast Food. Sure the turkey melts and junior roast beef sandwiches all came out quick ... and sure the line to order was smooth and painless ... but turns out beyond the goodness that this particular node of Arby's was, there is a deep level of misunderstanding at corporate Arby's. People go eat Fast Food, not because the food is great. People go eat Fast Read more [...]

Welcome Home!

I love coming home to my family!  It never gets old.  Whether gone for a few hours, days or weeks ... pulling up to the curb, looking the house over, cutting across the front yard, and opening the front door ... to the cheers, applause, accolades, hugs and kisses of my adoring Wife and two girls. Ok, so maybe every time I walk in the front door it isn't as magical a moment as said.  But more often than not, even if there is crying or fighting going on somewhere in the house when I walk Read more [...]

Top 12 Sad Faces of Little Lady

Here I present to you ... the "Top 12 Sad Faces of Little Lady".  I scoured through (literally) thousands of Little Lady pictures (thank you Google Picasa) to pull out the best.  This girl sure has lungs ... and after all these, some abs as well! 1.

South Texas Snow

Living in South Texas has its benefits ... such as today's mid 70 degree weather ... in DECEMBER! That said, it doesn't snow here.  Well ... it did once.  We had just moved here back in February of 2011 and a blanket of ice/snow fell from the sky and the entire city shut down (link).  And I mean really shut down.  Not just school closings but like city-wide-emergency-do-not-even-look-out-the-window-shutdown.  Of course later that afternoon everything was melted and it was back up to the Read more [...]

Day #3 … Dear Journal, hunger is settling in

Dear Journal, Today is day #3 of Little Lady/Daddy-quality-time-week.  While Wife is traveling, we've been having ourselves a good time here at home playing, dancing, eating, singing, and watching TV.  Wife is smart and for the well-being of both Little Lady and me, made a few quick meals before heading out the door. But like I said ... it is day #3 ... and the lunchtime food ... IS GONE! Never mind the fact that Little Lady and I have eaten the same lunch every lunch for the last Read more [...]
