New Addition

Tracked down a very handsome coonhound mix, so that Duke can have a brother. His name is Boomer (sure to drive my UT friends crazy). They are now "The Boys".

I'm a Sheeple... Sorta

So, I've been following the iPhone 5 rumors pretty closely, mainly because my 3GS is almost full and has been slooowing waaaay dooown. I was due for an upgrade as of Sept 9, but held off until after the launch date. I watched the launch event and decided that the iPhone 5 was the one for me. I pre-ordered on the 14th and waited (somewhat) patiently for an email that it had shipped. My lovely wife sent a picture if the shipping box and it felt like Christmas. I set it up with AT&T , Apple and my work. I dig it and I finally one-upped my wife's 4S. (Click the pic)

Messing Around With Paracord

I was helping the Wee Angel raise money for her European Odyssey by making Paracord stuff for her to sell. That trip has come and gone and she now has her sights set on Washington DC for next summer. She has to raise all the money this time and
I'll be making more bracelets for her to sell. Here's an example of a recent project. Its called a Piranha stitch and it may be my favorite to date. (Click the pic).

Latest Addition-Ruger10/22 TD

I was at Academy with the family today and ran off to the gun department as usual. I asked if they had the Ruger 20/22 TD in stock. The guy went to the cage and pulled one of five down to show me.
It comes in a padded backpack in two pieces. Just slide the barrel into the receiver and twist and voila, you have a complete rifle. Pop in a 10 or 25 round magazine and it's ready to shoot. I added a Burris Fastfire that wasn't making the grade on my AR and I'm ready to hit the range this week.

Bone Garden Cantina

If you're ever in Atlanta, you must visit Bone Garden Cantina. Great food (even without the fantastic Caramel Habanero ice cream), great drinks (spicy 'ritas) and great service (ask for Dominique). Oh, I almost forgot, the Dia de Los Muertos decor is great!!

The Wee Angel

So, the Wee Angel (AKA Sugar Booger) has been accepted into the People to People Student Ambassador Program. She is going on a three week European Odyssey this summer to Italy, France and Greece (assuming Greece is still there). She has been tasked by us to raise $2000 of the trip's cost. She is doing this by recycling cans, old cell phones and printer cartridges; selling World's Finest Candy and homemade coozies.

She also has a website where you can donate, if you'd like-

It's a cool opportunity for her.

Help if you can.
