Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Me

Yesterday, Caleb & my beloved wife Gina were talking about how well they knew me.  As a part of this discussion, Caleb listed things he knew about me:

  • dramatic
  • strong
  • uses excuses to get his way
  • a little weird
  • likes to play with me
  • lets me do stuff
  • gives advice
  • does stuff with me

Meagan, not to be outdone, decided to make her own list of what she knows about Daddy:

  • loves me
  • he’s my Daddy
  • plays with me
  • plays house
  • he’s handsome
  • wants to play Settlers of Catan
  • he loves Mama

There you have it — the most complete description of me by two wonderful people who claim to know me pretty well.  Maybe I could include this information on my résumé;  I’m sure I wouldn’t have a problem finding a job if the prospective employer knew all that about me.

Whizbang Garden Cart



Caleb & I finished building our Whizbang Garden Cart and used it for the first time this morning. I decided to paint it with some left over exterior paint we had laying around. I had been, and may still be, hoping to paint some designs on it like an old hippie VW bus-van. The construction was fairly easy to follow, although at first I was following blindly until I figured out what was going on. It is very solidly constructed, well balanced, and I love the wheels.


Unfortunately, I still live in the Valley of the Sun and my backyard is as agrarian of a setting as I can find at this point. In just a few short weeks, our Whizbang Garden Cart will be in the most agrarian of agrarian settings, when it makes it to our farm in Nebraska! I can’t wait — we are less than three weeks away!
