A Special Message For @oreillyauto, You Can Read It Too

Dear O’Reilly Auto Parts, I hear your advertisements on the radio and then can’t get your catchy jingle out of my brain anytime I drive by an O’Reilly Auto Parts store. I often catch myself singing it. My kids do as well. They catch me singing it so often, in fact, that they too sing …

Eating Ice Cream

wpid-20150619_185652.jpg

Here’s Henry eating ice cream from a bowl. He’s pretty adept at not wasting very many drops of ice creamy goodness. He only gets some of it on his face, which is to be expected with this technique.

Carnival Now, Disney Later

Last weekend here in Trinidad, Colorado we went out to the Family Fun Days at the Las Animas County Fairgrounds. We had a swell old-fashioned time there.

Here’s the wife and kids with the awesome art project the kids did at school. It is so adorable and cute and stuff. It was all wrapped up in fancy paper and as my wife unwrapped it Eliza said, “Thanks Mom.” We cried a tear of joy and love.

Gifts For Dads: Brass Knuckle Meat Tenderizer

    Steak is good right? But sometimes (all the time in my case) you don’t want to pay these ridiculous prices they’re charging nowadays. I mean, have you seen the meat counter at your local market? Highway robbery I tell ya. So I will get a cheaper cut of meat, which is nice. However, …
