My Dad

I know this is a day late, but I didn't get a chance to write this yesterday. Yesterday was Father's Day so I just wanted to say a few things about my dad. I couldn't have asked for a better one. I've grown up and seen lots of dads that aren't as involved in the lives of their kids, who didn't quite get the significance of spending quality time with their sons. My dad wasn't like that at all. I grew up playing baseball every summer from the time I was 5 until I was 18 years old and now playing some softball and baseball even now at 28. My dad was there all the time. He was there teaching me to play baseball before I was old enough to play city league. He was there cheering me on during the countless city league, all-star and high school games. He was sometimes critical but not overbearing when it came to teaching me about baseball. He didn't show favortism towards me the one time he got to be my head coach. I always respected that about him, being a victim of many coaches who thought their kid was the greatest to ever play. His role as dad went far beyond the baseball field though. He was a great role model for me and my brother. My dad overcame a lot of bad choices as a teen and young adult to become a patient yet stern Christian example that steered me to become the person I am today. He always told me that he loved me and my brother and many dads sadly don't say that to their kids. I'm lucky to blessed with two parents who love me as much as they do and I hope to be a good parent one day as well and my kid/s will be lucky to have two sets of grandparents who will help pass the love down to them.

Oh yeah, and my dad still comes to my softball and baseball games and it still means just as much now as it did when I was a kid.

You know, sometimes nothing happens on the weekend. I was badly sunburned so I barely went outside, therefore I stayed home and was extremely lazy. Therefore, not much happened. I've turned from a lobster into a banana. My skin is peeling like crazy. It's gross, yet cool at the same time if that's possible. Ole Miss did clinch it's 3rd straight super regional so that's cool. They have to go to Tempe, AZ so that sucks. I am coughing like crazy and I hate it, yesterday Leslie and I were in Old Navy and I was coughing so bad I was sure that someone was about to call The Center for Disease Control, so I left and waited in the car with tears streaming down my face from all of the coughing. Coughing really sucks!

Recovering Lobster & A Movie

So apparently I have sun poisoning. I've been sick the last couple of days and not completely better yet. I've had cold-like symptoms which are apparently from the good burning I received from the sun Monday. I'm doing better today but still not 100%. I hope I learned my lesson this time. My shoulders are still pretty sore and red but getting better each day. Hopefully I'll be pain free by the weekend. We shall see.

I watched a pretty good movie last night. "The Night Listener". It's a psychological thriller starring Robin Williams. It's about a phone relationship with a 14 year old boy who's manuscript William's Character Gabriel Noone had been given. However after talking to the boy's "adoptive mother" over the phone the question arises whether or not the boy even really exists or if the "mother" simply made him up and disguises her voice to sound like a teenage boy. I actually enjoyed it and recommend it. Robin Williams makes some pretty good movies. "One Hour Photo" and "The Final Cut" are also good movies starring Williams. Go check them out.

Lobster Anyone?

"Why do I have a picture of a lobster on my blog?" You might ask. Well, it's simple. Because right now I look like one. Yesterday Leslie and I spent part of the day with some friends on the Tombigbee River near Columbus. Needless to say, I was out there a little bit too long and today I am paying the price. Mind you, I've been burnt worse before, but it's still never fun to be sun burned. I guess I will never learn my lesson.

Sunday I got to sing with two friends of mine at First Christian Church here in West Point. We sang "One Thing I Ask", "Hide Me Away, O Lord" and "Wait on the Lord" (which I learned in 10 minutes). People are always so impressed at a cappella singing when they aren't used to hearing it at their church. It is always music to my ears having grown up around it my whole life. To me, there is nothing quite like it and I love every opportunity to sing with my friends.

Friday, I attended the worst graduation EVER. My cousin graduated from West Point High so me and some of my family went to see him. For some odd reason we met his parents at the far end of the stadium where it was hard to see anything. And I don't think I heard 10 words of the graduation ceremony because people all around us were talking, stomping on the stands and showing up 30 minutes after graduation started. I faintly heard the principal ask for respect and silence since graduation is supposed to be a dignified event, yet I saw no action taken to make that happen. I was really angry. Why do people have such a hard time showing even the smallest amount of respect.

My Ears Hurt

Congratulations to Jordin Sparks on winning American Idol last night. She definitely deserved it. That makes two years in a row that a worthy contestant has won it, unlike seasons 3 & 4. I am so lucky though, I got home just in time to catch Bette Midler in her ear piercing performance of "Wind Beneath My Wings". I though Bette Midler could sing. BOY WAS I WRONG! Check it out for yourself, but when your ears start bleeding, don't blame me, blame the blonde haired chick who obviously traded vocal chords with a wounded penguin.

The Cell Phone Prank

I absolutely love "The Office". I think I can relate to it on many levels since I happen to work in an office filled with cubicles and sometimes annoying people. This is the famous cell phone prank Jim and Pam pulled on Andy. Enjoy!
