All the Photos My apologies for the five-day delay in posting to this blog… The main reason for that is that I wanted to get all our vacation photos posted on Flickr before I blogged again. So now they’re all up, all 196 of them! You can view them by clicking this link, which will[…]

Monday evening, my wife made a wonderful soup for supper. When I asked her what kind it was, she said, “It’s soup.” When I forced her to make a name for it, she said, “Marline soup.” It had chicken bullion, potato, batata (sweet potato), celery, carrots, pork, green plantains, and maybe something else. As I[…]

Okay, folks. I’m back and blogging. Thursday morning, Nov. 12, my wife and I left Killeen at about 7:25 a.m., after I installed valve-stem extenders on the Buick so we could check air pressure on the front tires. They were low, so we dropped 50 cents to pump them back up. She was supposed to[…]

Roger, Over and Out   This will be my last post for a few days, barring any emergencies… We’re leaving early tomorrow morning and will drive about six hours to Seminole. Our plan is to stay with my parents Thursday night, Friday night, and Saturday night. On Sunday morning, we’ll head back to Killeen. If[…]

Disappointed Until about noon today, we thought my wife would get to see President Barack Obama in person. But it turned out to be too good to be true. Because she was on staff at the emergency room at Ft. Hood on the day of the massacre, both of us were more affected than many[…]

The Weekend

To be honest, my wife and I didn’t do much on Friday and Saturday (her two days off). This had little to do with Thursday’s massacre nearby, and more to do with both of us being just a little worn down. We did manage to get out and see A Christmas Carol in 3-D on[…]

Newest Nephew! I just learned that I’m an uncle again. My sister Shari gave birth to Elijah Ruben at home in England, at 3:32 a.m. Nov. 7 (their time, which would be 9:32 p.m., Nov. 6 in Central Time in the U.S.) I’m sure it’s okay to post this because they’ve already posted photos here[…]

All Calmed Down Now

Thank you to everyone who called, emailed, or commented on the blog, checking to see if we were okay yesterday. (Read yesterday’s post.) It’s pretty scary when something like that happens nearby, especially when one’s wife is in the thick of it. We’re all calmed down now, and my wife is off work today and[…]

Update (8:20 p.m. CST): My wife arrived home safely at 8:25 p.m. Thanks everyone for your prayers and well-wishes. Update (7:10 p.m. CST): The base is coming out of lockdown. My wife says she’ll now be allowed to leave the base, but every car will be thoroughly searched. It could take two hours for the[…]

I’ve been digging through old files lately, including hundreds of old letters that were written too me. This quote was just too funny to keep to myself. (Name omitted) was staying at *my* house with my sisters, while I was away, staying with (name omitted) . She included this note in the post script: “I[…]

Netflix Problem and Brenizer Method My wife has been a Netflix subscriber for several years, (even before she met me), and we’ve continued to enjoy their great service through her move to Seminole, and then through our move to Killeen, Texas. In fact, when we moved to Killeen, the service seemed to be even faster.[…]

Gas, Finally My wife is really loving her proximity to work. The biggest indicator of how short her drive is, is how little gas we have to buy now. She’s filled up twice since we moved here. That’s right, twice. On the last trip down from Seminole, we both filled up with gasoline in Belton,[…]
