Music to my ears

I couldn't live without music. Lorie fusses at me sometimes because I just don't feel right if I don't have that music in the background. I just walk into a room and turn on the light, then the radio. If I don't have music on, I have an uncontrollable jukebox in my head, always playing a tune. I sing at church and I love music in all forms so needless to say, music is a big part of my life.

The other day I was waking up and checking on David using the monitor. He is very good and will wake up, pull back the curtain and start playing, waiting for one of us to open the door. Sunday morning I turned up the volume to see if he was awake or asleep and I heard the best thing, he was singing to himself! He knows a song from church "Who made you?" and I clearly heard his version of it. I have been thinking about it ever since. My boy is just like his papa and he loves music.

Employment is such a wonderful feeling

After many months of soul-searching and many weeks of unemployment, I have accepted a position at a local printing company, Business Cards Tomorrow (BCT for short). I am their assistant plant manager and I'll be learning all the facets of their business, from how to sweep the floor, to making ink colors and rubber stamps.

Thank you friends for your support, these last 6 months have been very painful. Your support and prayers have carried us through.

"As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive."

Pavarotti and my Dad

I didn't realize how much Luciano Pavarotti passing away would effect me, but I'm watching hos videos and crying tonight. Why? Because my dad loved the big tenor. He would have the Three Tenors CD on all the time when we'd visit. If he heard Pavarotti's voice on the radio, the conversation stopped or slowed down considerably. Dad was a tenor most of his life and I loved hearing his voice, even when it was dry and weak because of the chemo. He died 3 years ago last month.

In 2000 I had the opportunity to give dad a gift, a ticket to a concert here in Nashville, Pavarotti's first and only performance here. It was a night I'd never forget, My dad and I in the cheap seats, about 1/4 mile from the stage and loving every minute of it.

As my father lay dying, he said it was one of the highlights of his life. When I will think on my last memories her on this earth, I will remember Pavarotti in Nashville, and my father crying through Nessun Dorma.

Rest in Peace, Luciano. Thanks for the memories.

david at 2

I spent the time I had with David yesterday making a list of the words he knows. He's a great parrot, but I had no idea he knew so many words. I counted 112 honest to goodness words and another 21 proper names. He's a chatty one, too.

No sound, but really cute!

I'm still around

Hey all, that is if anyone still checks this blog anymore.

I've gotten a few comments from family and friends that they feel like I've dropped off the face of the earth since last March. It's certainly not intentional. I have sat down at my computer several times to write, but I haven't gotten very far. The last 6 months have not been easy, not one bit. I'm looking for a new job, a better career track for now. I have been working on a coffee business, but I don't have the money to continue, so it's postponed for the foreseeable future. I plan on posting more. David turns 2 in 2 weeks and he's a riot. Lorie is a joy and a wonderful mom and wife who has taken such good care of us all.

More in the future.

Sad but good day

Hello all friends and family,

I want to call you all but I don't think I could tell the same story
over and over so many times.

As of this afternoon, I am no longer a partner at Bobbie's Dairy Dip
or the manager of J and J's Market and Cafe. Sam Huh came to the
decision that I was no longer to be his partner or employee. That has
always been his prerogative. I joined with him 3 years ago to learn
how to be a businessman, and he has taught me many things, and this
was his last lesson to me.

Of course this is very sudden and it is too soon to know what the
future holds. I ask for a favor from you. Keep my family and our
future in your prayers and for a path to be lit by Christ, our Lord.
We will have big decisions to make in the coming weeks.

Love and blessings,

The climbing starts!

OK, so David was discovered by Lorie the other day on TOP of the dining room table! He has figured out how to get into the chair and then it's an easy step up...*sigh*

We don't know if we should cheer his abilities or scold him. He's just too cute. All he wanted was his mothers cup with a straw.
