01.30.13 I love this girl

I love the boy, too.

01.29.13 North High

I love this gym. This is the last season it will be used for games as a shiny new one is being built on the property. The good news is that it won't be razed.

These two love biking for groceries and I love that they love that. There's a whole lotta love.

Hanging out in a swanky joint with some equally swanky ladies.

Fernando finally gave into peer pressure and bought a more intelligent phone than the one he had before.

01.19.13 auction

Went to a huge auction in Oklahoma City of merchandise seized from a recording studio owner who defrauded the government out of millions of dollars through his prosthetic limb making company. This guy had a ton of stuff. It all went for really high dollars. In a lot of cases it went for more than it costs new. We didn't get anything and I didn't get a chance to raise my hand, which made me sad but it was fun. The good news is that the taxpayers got a good chunk of money back.

01.18.13 World's Largest Hand-dug Well

The Big Well Museum in Greensburg is great. It tells the story of the the well, the tornado and the rebirth of the town. It is not, however, for those afraid of heights.

01.16.13 student section

I've heard several different explanations of the Shocker that I won't explain here. Shockers UP! The picture was one of more than 2,000 frames I took at the game for this video.

01.15.13 Dr. Martin Luther King

The second-graders were in charge of today's assembly and each group presented their dreams just like Dr. King presented his dreams for the country. Some of the themes included: not littering, not killing and to giving money to poor people. Lexi's group dreams of a world where people are nice to each other.

01.13.13 Oath of Office

I've enjoyed shooting Tim Norton at the biannual oath of office ceremony. He always has at least two grandkids up there with him.

01.08.13 Edward

Just realized there's been more talk of dogs than cats on this blog in 2013. That will change soon. I'm sure of it.

01.07.13 my bro

Got to see my brother and his family today while they were driving through town. Had a lot of fun with those kiddles last summer.

01.04.13 a dream realized

The man of my dreams is making my drum dreams come true. Together we have wrapped a maple PDP kit he gave me for my birthday (you can see my old bass drum at the back right). You can count on the fact that I will be sharing lots of photos of my new sparkly drums. This picture doesn't do them justice. They are amazing. P.S. My old pink shells are for sale if anyone is interested.

01.01.13 Happy New Year

Today is the start of the sixth year of my blog. Doesn't look that much different than my very first picture in 2008.

Year in review

This video doesn't want to embed into this layout but you should be able to see it here.

12.31.12 Cheers!

The kiddles got to drink their own "champagne" (sparkling grape juice) to celebrate the start of 2013. The 4-year-old said that it tasted "crumbly" which I thought was a good way to describe the carbonation. The 3-year-old SpiderMan couldn't get enough of it.
