Call off the Search

Call off the dogs. I haven't gone missing in real life ... just my blog life. I had a pretty hectic start to this whole new year thing. Having to write 2007 on everything messes me up until March ... With pinkeye, road trip to Florida, two diet competitions starting, a stake volleyball tournament (which the Loden's dominated), and another trip to Buford, GA, I've been running around like crazy. Sprinkle in a lost cell phone (which did NOT get stolen), a new cell phone to replace it, over my limit in minutes this month and still got 4 more days to go ( so don't expect me to answer your incessant pleas for autographs, money, love life advice, etc unless your pleas come via email or blog comments then its $20 for the autograph, $20 for a shiny new $10 bill (or two fives if you please) and my love life advice is free ... its "love life".

Raquelle's Rampage

See how that big dent in our Murano's fender matches the size and shape of my melon. That's not a coincidence. I was just minding my own business, hanging out under the front of the Murano, when Raquelle throws the car in gear, slams on the gas, and pins my head between the fender and the garage door. In a great battle of wits, the fender bent its will to mine under the excuriating pressure.

Now you can believe that story, or the one that Raquelle tells everyone. It's about how she was shopping in Target for two hours (I swear she could miss the Apolycalypse and the Second Coming in Target), and some car pulled a parking lot "hit and run". Bummer of a birthmark, Hal.

Adorable Nathaniel


We have never seen Nathaniel smile for the camera like this. He loves his excersaucer from Myra and McRae, great friends of the family. While his toes just barely touch the bottom, he grabbed for all the toys and pressed all the buttons. Thanks ya'll!

Wii Sports Golf Hole in One Part Two

I didn't like the video quality of the last hole in one I made. So what did I do about it? No I didn't cry like a little school boy who got force-feed grass by a girl ... why are you looking at me like that? Anyway, I made another hole in one while ReplayTV captured the action. A side efffect of using the Replay was a four second lag between when I swung my club and when I saw my club swinging on TV. Its not only disorientating, the mind-bogglinglyness of it ... well ... blows your mind.

Wii Golf Hole in One

My mad skills in full swing (no pun intended but its welcomed).

Over the Hedge: Fans Create Verm Tech Commercial

Raquelle and I loved this movie. Her favorite line was: "Oh yeah, well do you have a Associate's degree from Verm Tech?"
