    Birmingham Pen Company

    I’ve been eyeballing the wicket model-c at the above mentioned website. When they went on sale earlier this year. I snagged one with a medium nib. I haven’t had an opportunity to use it yet as my ink is in my office. No pics, but you can view it here: Wicket

    First Car for Oldest Daughter

    Today we purchased a car for my oldest to drive. Before she can drive it, she’ll need to learn to drive a manual. :-) Her first lesson was tonight. She did fine. I told her the majority of stalls in her life will happen early on, then she will have the feel and the ear for it.

    Checking In

    Hi folks, I'm sure many of you don't know me or have a vague recollection of me from my time active here. For those who do remember, I thought I'd check in. I remember all of you fondly. Aside from some job changes, I'm still progressing on my Masters degree targeting summer 2018 as my...

    Headed back to school

    As some of you know, I am an Administrative Pastor. This summer I'll head back to school to finish up my Master's Degree (M.Div). It should take me a couple of years if I hit it hard. My visits have been few and far between in the last six months. I fear that may become the norm for me in the...

    A brief update

    Hey brothers, I thought I would check in and let you know I'm alive and well. Big changes at my and my bride's work, and the kid's stuff like end of the school year activities, soccer games, and dance recitals, have necessitated a break from the forum. I saw some of the crazy coming up when I...

    A Brown Flake Bomb

    After working 11 hours on Monday I came home to find an ordinance in my mailbox. This was a precision strike, hitting me right where I was vulnerable. DrumsAndBeer had been paying attention and remembered that I mentioned wanting to try this blend. The thing is, I only mentioned it once. I...

    Surprised by the Shadow

    I felt a chill in the air as I walked to the mailbox. I attributed this to the change of seasons. Naive. The key opened the lockbox and revealed the box. My kids were excited, thinking grandma sent them some treat. "No, I've drawn the attention of a most notorious man. This is his doing...
