Much more awake now, had my Mc griddles and coffee and a healthy does of Hidden Fortress. Ahh feels good! I was getting blurry on that last post (and there is still way too much cat hair on this key pad, they have to be putting it back when I'm not here).
My son Geoffrey (Fefnir and Saiyamar at Game Revolution*) is at Navy basic and will be gone for 9 weeks. We will see him at graduation.(cool) My younger son Rudger(who wants to be a cooler and more dangerous Steve Erwin) is off visiting the grand parents for the summer. They live out in the country west of Hamilton OH where he can spend his days terorising the woodland creatures. (if its loose in the woods so is he and sooner or later it will be in his hand). His ambition is to surpass my list of bare hand captures of species, and he probably will.
*= Geoff did the reviews for Turok II, and Syphon Filter(when he was 15) as Fefnir for Game Revolution, and was a supervising operator and IR cop for the chat rooms as Saiyamar.
As you may have noticed I am intensly proud of both my boysand am very Blessed.
Now I have to figure out and get started on my to do list for today.
I think this page needs more pics and stuff.

Yes I have decided to call the entries anomalisms. First off much thank to everyone who has welcomed me to SK. No entry for 7-9 because I worked 15 hrs, only14 today and I seem to have some energy left for this. Not much though, I'm fading fast. Dispite my best efforts, Jaeerd my helper just will not meltdown. Yep lost my thread time to go crash

I had to work today, because the route that I do has too much work and can't be done in 4 days like the other crews managed to do. So I'm at my second job of the day,a church in a little town called Aurora. And I'm mowing along and people start showing up and setting up chairs along the street. I'm thinking that I know they don't want to sit and take in the spectical of me cutting grass. And it hits me, they are about to have a parade. I have an hour left of stuff to do and I'm not going to get away. damn I'm gonna have to watch this goofy small town parade. bugger this I got work to do, right? So I end up sitting alone on a big rock out in front of this place, its one of those center of town historical looking churches. So the parade shows up and it what I expected all kinda hoaky and stuff. All the town's fire equipment is there. They had a tractor pulling a haywagon full of kids tossing candy at the crowd cars with people in them waving, abunch of cheerleaders doing what they do (ugh). There was a junior karate club that would stop and the little one would break boards and the crowd would cheer. There was a 15' inflatable pink panther leaning on a giant inflatable hot tub( I didn't get the symbolism there). A biker on a Harley(?), another bunch of biker looking dudes carrying a giant flag by the corners, (I think they were vets). A Scotish marching band with bag pipes(that was cool). More cars pulling wagons full of little league ball teams, more fire equipment, more flags. And no one seemed to think any of it was strange, every one was happy to be there, happy to be with the people around them having a great time celebrating the birth of our nation. I'm German, Scots Irish, Norwegan,and Cherokee, my ancesters have been here 90,250,300,and 3000yrs or so. I guess I'm about as American as it gets. Picture this big guy with the face from my page sitting there with a tear running down his face. It was wierd but I don't think I've ever been more proud to be an American than at that moment, what a day.
