Small town America

Agh, the joys of a small town. I imagine many small tows struggle with
coming up with front page stories for their local newspaper. But your
front page picture is the high school band? And your big lead story
is that the window service at the post office is going to change?
Might want to consider going to every other day.

Vacation blog

Ok, so I am thinking about putting up some stories from our trip.

Explosivewife is running a 50 mile race this weekend In Amarillo. We
are currently on our way there. We just stopped at a little gas
station on 287 that proclaimed to have "Lean Restrooms". Obviously the
"C" was missing from the sign, butthat didn't stopy genius son from
asking " what is a lean restroom?". Mind you, he is a 13 year old
straight A student.

While waiting for the mens lean restroom, the gentleman that was
occupying it was taking quite some time, so we jumped to the womens
restroom (the place was empty). Upon returning to the car, my lovely
wife asks what took so long. I replied that the guy in the restroom
was giving birth to a baby so we used the other restroom. I jokingly
mentioned that he kept asking fir hot water and towels.

My wife believed me. "really?" she asked.

This is my wife and son. They tend to lack the common sense gene that
most people seem to have. Or don't, I have noticed quite a bit lately.

Sorry if there are typos. I am typing this on my phone as we drive.

Well Hello, Blog!

Hi Blog! How are you?



You have abandoned me.



Sorry, French skills notwithstanding, life has been crazy. I would like to see you keep up with a Blog when you have a son playing football and baseball, a cheerleading daughter, and a wife who goes insane if you are away from her for more than 3o minutes.

But I do have those. I have several sister blogs that are very needy.


No, seriously! Have you read some of the blogs that are on the side of the page? Take 10 minutes and read the comments on Barry Green's blog...that will make you understand.

My bad, blog...those people are insane. Although I do wish that sometimes I would get crazy commenters on you, because it would give me more to blog about.

Trust me, you don't want that, dude.

Don't dude me. I deserve your respect.

Not when you ignore me for weeks on end.

Touche. Mind if I put down some random thoughts?

Nah...go ahead.

I don't get U2. Never have...probably never will. Worth an occasional listen when on the radio, but I have never owned one U2 album, never put them on the favorites, never listened to them on purpose. They just never have spoken to me like they have with others.

But I am very excited about the new albums from Bowling for Soup and Atreyu. That should give me plenty of listening material for quite some time.

Ordered and Apple TV this week. Hopefully I can get some thoughts up about them.

Received some good feedback when posting the pic above on Twitter. You can follow me...@spoonerstreet

It has been said a thousand times, but I am sick of rain. Sick, sick sick of it!

I actually had a celebrity or two reply back to me on twitter...that is my favorite aspect of it...the pseudo-personal communication with people who two years ago I had no chance of ever interfacing with.

Later, Blog!

Yeah, right. Later...
