If you do not know me (I mean, really know me) then there is something you need to understand before you read this blog: I value the truth above everything else... except a good laugh. A good laugh will almost always beat the truth as far as I’m concerned. Everything you read on this blog will be true, somewhat true, or something I made up in an effort to get a laugh. Sometimes I will go on a rant that I don’t really mean (or only kind of mean). Sometimes I will mean what I write only to completely change my mind a year, month, or day later. Such is life. By reading this blog you agree not to get offended by anything I write (or, at the very least, you agree not to tell me or anyone else that you are offended). It is worth noting that my employer does not endorse my blog (or even read it, to tell you the truth). The Wife also does not endorse my blog (though she will read it from time to time). I am not paid to write this... it’s just my way of giving back to the community. I have, and will, touch on a wide range of subjects and will give my opinion on these subjects. Again, most of what I say is for laughs but every now and then I will say what I really think and feel (see my views on Westboro Baptist Cult). How will you know when I’m serious and when I’m trying to get a laugh? You’ll know. And if you don’t know, well... maybe this isn’t the best thing for you to be reading. So, sit back, read and enjoy.

So… about Susie

Me with my favorite Disney character of all-time.  Know what I said the other day about the look on Daniel's face making the trip worth it?  Forget it... me getting to see Donald Duck is what made the trip worth every penny!

Of all of my children… Susie is the LAST ONE I would have thought would break a bone. She doesn’t want to play any sports because she doesn’t want to get sweaty! So, it was somewhat surprising (to say the least) when The Wife called me last week to inform me that Susie broke her arm at school. From what I understand, a bull had broken loose from a nearby farm and was headed straight for the playground that was filled with children. Susie, with no regard for her own well-being, ran to get in front of the bull. Well Susie is small so, of course, the bull didn’t see her… therefore it never even slowed down. Picture it… a 5,000 pound bull running at over 70 mph (breaking, I must point out, the speed limit for that area) and there stood little brave Susie as the last obstacle between this killer bull and a playground filled with children. Without hesitation, Susie drop-kicked the bull right in the nose (little known fact, a drop-kick to the nose will stop a bull dead in its tracks) saving all of the children on the playground. Sadly, she landed funny and broke her arm in two places. So, long story short, she’ll be getting a hard cast put on it today or tomorrow. The school, of course, wanted to give her a medal and make a big deal over it, but Susie doesn’t like people making a fuss over her… so I told them not to worry about it.
