Nothing eventful has happened.  I attended a bachelor party over the weekend but the most exciting part was that the brisket I smoked for 10 hours was damn good (and fully consumed as I carved it).  Otherwise, nothing to report.   The painting continues and I will post some new pictures in that regard sometime, but don’t want to start a theme.

Kaldun has been doing pretty well in school lately.  No real problems at home either.  But I ran across this picture and I’m sure I owe him some humiliation for something.  So enjoy:

  1. Ah, the days of getting weird stuff stuck in your hair. I had bubble gum and a comb (two separate occasions). The bubble gum required peanut butter (still don’t know how that worked) to get it out, and the comb; a friendly old lady neighbor of ours, wet hair and scissors. That was the night I learned that combs have teeth. Weird memory huh?

  2. Poor boy. He’s going to have to start taking some blackmail photos of his dad…

  3. Jesse, J.D. Hodges referred me to you to tell me the story about retrieving a boat from a desert whilst being shot at? Please do tell!

    Hi J.D., as you know, I’m a big fan of your adventures. Particularly intriguing is your mention of retrieving a sailboat from a desert whilst being shot at by “Indians”. Do you have a blog post about it hidden anywhere? What happened to the boat?

    Uncle Harley, I must defer to Jesse as he has a certain knack for the telling of this story. Just ask any of the fellas that attended my bachelor party weekend and they will immediately recall Jesse’s telling of this particular story ;-) .

    I have no blog post secretly hidden, and I admit to being more of an oral historian, but someday it will be posted. Someday.

    And to be fair, I can not say we were shot at by Indians (fwiw, every Native American I know calls them self Indian or talks about how much Indian blood they have, the Indian hospital, etc. So I use the term, regardless of the confusion it causes trying to distinguish between Native Americans and people form India). All I know is we were on Route 666 in the middle of the desolate Navajo reservation at ridiculous in the AM and someone thought it would be funny to shoot at the sailboat driving past with the flashers going. TO be honest – I can’t blame them.

    It is an epic, to be sure. I’ve requested the photos from JD and eventually I’ll get it down on paper. But to date it is an oral tradition.
