Fall is upon us here in the Midwest – though you wouldn’t know it with the temperatures in the high 80’s. The Farmer’s Almanac predicted a cold, rough winter, and yet it’s been so warm that the poor trees are too confused to even change color. So much pumpkin! So much spice! All for the readers!
My wife and I recently welcomed our second child – a healthy and hefty baby boy – happy, innocent, and loving, and immediately thought, “Holy crap, we can NEVER let this happen again!” That’s when we began talking about permanent prevention, and ended – with unsettling haste – on vasectomy. The men in the audience will probably want to cross their legs before continuing…
Well folks, we did it; together we made it through an entire year of random online ramblings. WordPress just notified me that it’s my one year anniversary this week! We’re 37 posts in and, while things have slowed a little, I think it’s still coming along nicely. Find out how we’re celebrating!
My wife and I recently loaded up the family Truckster with approximately 90% of our earthly belongings, and took the kids on a little road trip from St. Louis to the great state of Iowa (Now with corn AND soybeans!) to see their great-grandmothers, and make a short stop at our alma mater, Iowa State University.

So I don’t know about all of you, but I don’t care much for the process of getting fit. I like being fit, but apparently I don’t just stay fit no matter what anymore. Apparently I have to work for it now, which is total crap. When did this happen?!
So the great homelessness saga of 2016 is coming to an end this week, and it seemed like a good time to reflect on all the things that have kept me from updating the blog for the last couple of months. Continue reading
Flying is starting to get on my nerves lately. Don’t get me wrong, airports provide some of the best people-watching opportunities outside Las Vegas – today I saw a significantly overweight woman with green hair and a nose ring bursting out of a tank top that said “Do Epic Sh*t”, but without the asterisk; Classy!
