the talkative toddler…..

I’m watching my toddler grandson; we’re at the kitchen table ostensibly for breakfast. Mike is looking at his food and talking, talking and more talking. But, I can’t quite figure out what he is saying; just bits and pieces.

Super Scholar – The best ideas in the world.

SuperScholar.org is a website dedicated to “the best ideas in the world” – our goal being to foster an appreciation of the full range of human excellence – the intellectual, the athletic, the creative.

Saturday morning….

Spent lots of money last night and this morning: new tires for the Element, large load of groceries at Wal-Mart, and just finished paying bills. Wish I could hang on to my money longer. Oh well, at least I got all that taken care of….

My first job: U.S. Army

I did have a couple of part time jobs when I was in high school; also mowed lawns and caddied some when I was a kid. My first real job was the Army. I enlisted right out of high school and stayed for twenty years. I was stationed in Germany twice and Korea once. I met my wife, also a soldier, on my second tour in Germany. We got married in Denmark and are living happily ever after….

Sunday morning….

I was all ready to go to Church this morning and the car wouldn’t start ! I think we might need to replace the Rav4 ’cause it has been having problems lately; specifically does not want to start in wet weather ! It’s old as dirt so probably need to replace it but I’m not really prepared for that ! Dang it !

On a positive note; since I wasn’t able to get to church I worked on some work I had brought home from work and took a big bite out of my backlog !
