    Apparently It’s Not A Fluke!

    “Apparently it wasn’t a fluke.” As we were walking down to the targets to clean up, all of this hit me.

    A Quick Escape?

    There were locks, padlocks, bike locks, letter locks, magnetic locks, cryptex to solve, switches to flip, mirrors to figure out, hidden doors, hidden clues, clues in your face, one of the souths favorite refreshments, talk of cotton, Hank Arron, and Gone with the Wind.

    What Do You Call Music Dad?

    Music “vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) combined in such a way as to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion.” ~ Google Men, I have an issue […]

  • Pork On The Run

    Pork On The Run

    Now to catch a greased pig is much harder than it sounds. The next time that you are sitting around the house with nothing else to do, take some crisco and slather it on your neighbors cat and then run at the cat while screaming and try to catch the fleeing feline.

  • Time Keeps on Slipping

    Time Keeps on Slipping

    “When I get the time son…” or “Let’s go guys…I don’t have a lot of time…” or “I got a time schedule going here, let’s move it…” Are these the phrases that your kids hear from you? Dad are the kids constantly fighting for your time, are you are fighting for your time and your wife is fighting for your time? We fight and struggle to get it all done and only leave a few seconds of time for God. Let’s talk about time.

  • Got The Time?

    Got The Time?

    Hey guys, got the time? I have been camping and geocaching the past few days and had a blast with my family and friends. There are few things that can compare with camping, cooking, caching and camaraderie. (That was quite an alluring alliteration, and again another!)20131021-161104.jpgAnyway, once I got home and dried out from the rain and romping through the woods I stopped for a bit and just thought about the past four days. I asked myself why I had not done this more?

    Dads do you got the time? Are you spending time with your family and friends? There needs to be a balance in doing this, but it is needed. The family that we went camping with is so similar to our own that it can be a bit strange at times. However, in these people, we have found great trust, friendship and some awesome comic relief as the night waxed on. Continue reading

  • What's Acceptable?

    What’s Acceptable?

    Got a question for you dad, “What’s Acceptable?” At the end of this month many people will celebrate Halloween. Little kids, big kids and adults alike will be dressing up in different costumes and outfits to venture about in an attempt to get candy or play pranks. But what’s acceptable for a christian?

    What's Acceptable?
    What’s Acceptable?

    Some of today’s popular celebrations associated with Halloween have pagan roots stemming from the ancient Celtic festival, Samhain. This harvest festival of the Druids ushered in the New Year, beginning on the evening of October 31, with the lighting of bonfires and the offering of sacrifices. As the Druids danced around the fires, they celebrated the ending of the summer season and the beginning of the season of darkness. It was also believed that at this time of year the invisible “gates” between the natural world and the spirit world would open, allowing free movement between the two worlds. Continue reading

  • The Sands of Time

    The Sands of Time

    What is going on guys? I am attempting to enjoy a time away from everything with the family this week. We are on Anna Maria Island in Florida for a vacation! After an eight hour drive from my busy part of the world, we arrived with a tired driver and three well rested kids and passenger. We arrived to our rental house only to find that we could not get in just yet. The home rental company had not sent over their inspection team to verify that the last tenant had left the premises in good condition. We would be allowed in around 4:00 which was another five hours away! This leaves us with a few options to consider before we have to take the inevitable trip to the beach. I have been driving since 3:00 am, that puts me getting up at 2:15 am and the current time was 11:00. Breakfast consisted of a muffin that my dear wife made the night before so that she and I were able to stay on our Trim Healthy Mama plan. The muffin was good, however was way past keeping me full. So the good ol’ standby for anytime eating was close and available Subway! Continue reading
