Had about 40 people over. Couldn't afford squat so made some ice tea & bought a token case of cheap beer, lots of cheap hot dogs and buns, and a propane tank refill. Told everybody to bring a side & dessert, and a six pack or two.

Had a flipping blast. Total food buffet was created. We had 2 kinds of beans, 2 kinds of tater salad, cole slaw, enough brownies & cobbler to feed an army, several pasta salads, and someone contributed a brisket they had smoked for 14 hours. Life was good.

It's not the legal contracts (marriage licenses) that count. It's true friends & family that do.

Flew the flag proudly. And I've budgeted to put up a flag pole next month!

I have to fix the flag sconce on the side of the house. It just pulled out of the outer wall completely.
I am a dad. It is not a simple title, nor a professional position. It is a aggressively defended FACT!

Thanks, Cap.

That's your little man is gone is a relatively new experience for you. It'll take some getting used to but look at the time you have to yourself as an investment on the time's that hes with you. Those pictures were taken on a river that my buddy and I explored a few weeks back when the kids were at their moms. I wouldn't have put them on an unused stretch of river not knowing whether after the first bend we'd be portaging over a 1/4 mile of rocks or not or hitting some class II shoals that would have been too much for their inexperienced little butts.

I love taking my kids places but there are also times when what I'm doing would be a bit much for them or it's just straight adult time. Those are the things I schedule when the kids are away. I'm hoping to make a skydive jump next spring. That will be when they're at their moms. I'm also planning a canoe trip through the Okefenokee swamp next fall and while I'd like to take them, at the moment I'm planning on just adults with my outdoor buddies. They tolerate me bring my kids on most many things but sometimes its just nice to be a grown up around grown ups.

Go find a fishing hot spot for you and your little guy this weekend or if you're at least a casual fan of MMA, catch the biggest fight of the year tomorrow night with a friend. I want Sonnen to win this one SO BAD!

Maybe next year I will be ready to thrive during the separation.

It's hard to do all at once. Take a day or two at other times during the year and let kiddo spend a night or two at grandma's while you peruse your own adult endeavors. It will benefit both you and little capslock.
