My Brother the Father


Well, not a Father but a Pastor. My brother of 33 up and moved to Abbeville, Louisianna to be a pastor at a church there. Before he moved over there Hurrican Rita tore up the town pretty good so thats where the rebuilding comes in. He sent us the copy of the local newspaper where he is on the front page.

In the photo he is the second from the left, the mexican.

More info about his church and his town can be found here: http://www.bimi.org/content/spKatrina.asp

The website for the local paper is down.

Way to go John. He has come a long way from burning my GI Joes at the stake! He still owes me for those by the way.

Betting on the Dogs

No luck man. Rob, Christy, and I have been going to the Valley Race Park, greyhound races, these past three weeks and I can’t seem to catch a break man. I have come close of course. Always coming up short one dog. Damn those dogs. As Rob said,”how freaking hard is it to pick three dogs”. We usually bet whats called a Trifecta Box. You pick three dogs and they can come in in any order as long as they are in the top three. Its turning out to be a waste of money but it can be fun when your dogs are in the lead. I tell myself that at least I am not wasting this money on drinks!

Christy’s sister is the only one that has picked all three dogs. Damn her!
I might not be going this coming weekend.
