Back Home!

Just returned from Utah last night at about 7:30 pm. Roads were better so it didn't take as long coming home as it did going there. Wasn't thrilled to see all the snow still here, but I really knew it wouldn't be going anywhere anytime soon. In case you are interested, we got over 5' of snow in the month on December.

It was nice to visit with Bret & Britt for a few days. It got a little cramped in their apartment, but it was a good time. I'm pretty excited to be a grandpa. Due date is 7-29-09. Donna can't walk by baby clothes without looking now. Funny how this comes full circle. Slowly get rid of kids and slowly have more join the family. We're excited!

The other part of the trip was to take Ryleigh down to move into her apartment because she begins cosmetology school at Dallas Roberts on Jan. 6th. She will be there for about 12-14 months depending on the hours she gets in. It was hard letting my little girl go. She has just a great personality that will be missed at home. Plus, she likes guns and knives and fire. I am such a proud dad. She is really excited to be on her own and hang with her friends that go to BYU. Plus, her place is close to Bret's so they can see each other when they want too. It's a lot more quiet at home as I write this with two out of four kids gone.

Now, about the Zags. They did not play well in Utah. They haven't played well in a while. Now they have to go to Knoxville and play Tennessee. They play like they have no confidence at all. I'm not a fair weather fan, but it ticks me off how they have been playing lately. I need to take Donna's advice and chill and remember it IS a game. Right.

I recently got my Federal Firearms License which means I am a licensed gun dealer now. It's just to dabble in, but it is fun to be able to buy wholesale and transfer guns for people. So, if anyone needs a gun let me know. I can save you money. I'm worried that our new president will try to start up the gun bans again even worse than the Clinton Administration did. I am stocking up on high cap magazines and AR 15 parts and ammo. You never know. You all should get your concealed weapons permits while you can too. Exercise that 2nd Amendment right!!

Well, I wil continue to post as often as I can. Some will be what's going on with my family and some will be rants. Some will be just to fire you up. Who knows?

I love my family.

  5. "Plus, she likes guns and knives and fire."

    Quite possibly the best line ever written in a blog post about a daughter.
