Duke’s First Burger!!

Up to this point, Duke has never shown any interest in hamburgers. But this weekend he kept talking about it, so I knew I had to make some this week for him.

Just an Update

The actual physical act of moving (while a new roof was getting installed on the same day… Continue reading Settling in to a new Home

That’s when I noticed this crack along the bottom on the inside…. So I looked at the outside.. One of the reasons… Continue reading Ruh Rho, Shaggie!!

Alabama White Wings

Geez…it’s been a long time. I s’pose I could give you a dozen reasons why I haven’t done a blog post in a while, but I’m not that kinda guy, this isn’t that type of blog and you probably don’t care. So I’ll just give you one… I’m sure you don’t want to see a… Continue reading Alabama White Wings
