Farm Fossilling

Tried to find some fossils in the creek at the farm:

 

Christmas 2011

As the year of the rabbit comes to an end, the year of the Dragon quickly approaches. 2011 was a good year, filled with many ups and downs, good times and bad times. 2011 seemed to last about as long as a decade. My medical board started around January and lasted until the end of October. So much has happened in this year, I’m not ready to write about it all now.  As I adjust to retired life and prepare for my 2nd career, I find myself missing the camaraderie of my military brother and sisters.  Although I’m glad I have moved on, especially when I think about the deployments and time away from family.

Anyway, enough about that.  The kids had a good Christmas.  Money is tight, but we’re surviving.  We are together as a family and safe.  We have much to be thankful for!

My thought are with our troops that are overseas!  May you come home safe and sound!

2012 WILL BE A BETTER YEAR!  And that’s that!

Learning Something New…

They say we learn something new everyday. I’m right at 32 years old (in a few weeks), and I have never — ever — had roller skate on. I have, however, tried ice skating before. Anyway… today I took the kids to Skate Night. My buddy Juan talked me into putting some skates on and giving it a shot. Neither of us could skate, so I reluctantly agreed and put some roller blades on. It took about 20 minutes to get from the counter to the place where you skate.  Once in the “skating cage” I kept falling and well… to make a long story short… I’m not a skater, so I’m not going to skate.  I did make several rounds before finally quitting.

But the kids had a blast!
