Birthday and Other Stuff

Well I did not get to go crawl around on the airplanes last Thursday as my buddy was just too busy.......BUMMER DUDE! Oh well, we are out there for at least another 6 months, so I have plenty of time. I will not let this one go though, as I really want to see an F-22 Raptor up close. Don't look for any photos of the experience as Lockheed tends to frown on photos on their air bases (can we say Jail time). I will keep you posted as to when things will go down.

I also turned the final corner of my 30's on Thursday......39!! Thanks all for the calls and cards!! They were much appreciated (although you SLowe's, I could have gone the next 39 without having to see that!!). For my birthday I got some clothes, which I needed and some money from the parent's and my wife(believe that?!). In her defense she said I told her 4 or 5 things I wanted or needed and that I "kept changing my mind". I will however be getting some more cloths and since Football Season starts next week (ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL?!?!), I usually get myself a new jersey for the start of the season and my fantasy draft, so I will pick one up as part of my B'day haul. I am thinking about Matt Ryan (KIDDING). Seriously, Calvin Johnson - Detroit(former Tech WR), Clinton Portis - Washington, Jason Taylor - Washington, and maybe others depending on availability.

OK, wake up now!! Went to a pretty good neighborhood party Sat. night and a good time was had by all. We had a pool tourney and I finished 2ND, no money, but still a lot of fun. I miss shooting on a regular basis. That was all we could afford to do growing up. So after late night poker on Friday and a late Saturday, I slept a lot on Sunday. Then of course we watched the closing ceremonies of the Olympics, which were really pretty cool. We hate that they are over, Donna and I are such JUNKIES for the Olympics. We thought about trying to go to Vancouver for the 2010 Winter Games. Who knows, but it won't be cheap.

All for now. CIAO'
