A few vid clips of Hayden's game

Von Hanks did an incredible job filming the kid's game on Saturday. Here's a few shots of Hayden. He's #20 with green socks pulled up high. Watch and enjoy the prowess of a future hall of famer for the NFL. (LT.... are you afraid???? Scouts are you watching???)

This is Hayden getting a hand off and a run up the middle.

This is Hayden playing left defensive end and blitzing.

Here is Hayden running again. He had to make a little adjustment as you can see.

Quick hit update

I am working midnights- It's ok- works well with the family schedule, just have to deal with a little lack of sleep. Since I'm on midnights, I'm not able to get many pics of the area llike before.

Life is interesting working without my partner- Bullet. Janeal thinks I'm bored and don't do anything now. I actually told myself when I got up here I'm not telling her much about what goes on at work. Sometimes it's better to keep the ones you love in the dark.

We've got a dog. Dudley. He's a goofy (fits in great w/ our family) Plott Hound. The kids wanted a dog desperately so Janeal sucumbed to the nagging. Now the problem, kids are LAZY. Janeal and I have to take care of him most of the time.

Life outside of work is fun. I'm helping coach Hayden's football team. I don't know all there is to know about football but it's fun. I use my "cop" voice and yell at the kids to get them moving. We'll see how the team does this year.

This is my time of the year. I love when things start to cool down and the colors change. The rain is coming and that makes it SOOOO easy to sleep during the day. And the best of all is watching football on my TV with my family.

Hey all, Janeal's family came up (Ron, Susan, Leslie, and Leyla) and enjoyed our heat wave with us.
Well, Leslie is one of the best photographers and you have to check out the pics she took all of us. Here is a link for it- Sweet Child of Mine - Enjoy

Here is a quick one of Janeal and I. Thank you Leslie

Good compilation of crazy life in the Border Patrol

I'm removing the video because it auto starts and that was annoying.

I stole this from Janeal's blog. She blogged so much it got pushed to pg 2. Ok, Janeal is still very busy and we are all trying to get stuff done. Here is a little fun time that we had - Dance Party Style! Reagan is HOT!

A little fun with Lady Gaga

Todays day at work

Well, today was fun for me. I worked up in the Ross Lake area. I went on a little hike (6 miles or so), and was able to enjoy the scenery. Unfortunately, I didn't get to try some fishing. Guess that will need to happen next time. Here's some pics. 

Only had a couple of problems with the hike.  New boots can cause blisters if not broken in properly, and sweaty buns= chaffed buns at the end of the day!  I know- TMI, but I chuckled most of the drive home between winces.

Just downright WRONG

Ok, I'm out at a K9 conference and I don't have much to do here after hours (cops are notorious drinkers and I'm not sure I want to hang out with a bunch of rowdy sots).  Well, I came across this from a friend on Facebook.  This goes back to my sense of humor, so watch and enjoy.  This one is actually funny I think.  

PS.  Janeal, you might really like this one.

All the pics

Here is a link to see all of the pics we took a few weeks ago while in Roche Harbor.  It's pretty much in sequence, starting with the ferry ride and through our time playing around on the island.  Take some time and check it out.  Maybe it will tempt the family to get their butts up here and enjoy some of the incredible wonders around here.  The only thing I forgot to get a pic of is our cabin.  Oh well, I guess we'll just have to go back.

A taste of our time out at the islands.

This is just a few photos of what we have to endure when we take a break and the sun is out.  This is just a taste.  More to come, probably on Janeal's blog.

Why I like dogs

Ok, my sis in law talked about cats... this is why I think dogs are so vastly superior. I like cats (kind of), but I love dogs.

I have a horrible sense of humor

Thank you Shelli for getting me into the Failblog thing.  They have some truly awful yet hilarious things on there.  I guess as I continuously deal with the dregs of humanity I get more of a "gallows" sense of humor.  Here's a vid of how funny "candid camera" shows are done in third world countries.  It's kind of funny yet kind of shocking.  Me, I just laughed.

Funny commercial

This is a possible commercial for the super bowl.  Doritos is having a contest for it.  Enjoy

PS. I'm changing the format to something else soon.  Time to get ready for some fishing and outdoor life.

Who supports who?

New fashion statement for mugshots in Chicago.  Why don't I see any Bush or McCain shirts?  Is that a form of racism?  I only jest... Enjoy

I love...

I love my FAMILY.

I know this isn't the usual thing for me to write about, but for some reason I just want to say it.  

First and definitely foremost, I love my wife.  She is wonderful and doesn't realize her strength and joy she gives me.  She is a great mom to our kids.  Thank you.  My kids- you are wonderful.  I love each one of them totally and completely.  

I love my brother and sisters.  Those of you who are struggling now, know you are in my prayers and I do love you.  You made my life miserable when I was young but also brought so much joy.  I love the memories.  Lulu, we really should have caught that bluegill.

I am grateful to say that I love my extended family.  

Finally, my parents.  Thank you for being incredible examples.  I pray that one day my family can be at least a shadow of what you guys have.  You are great examples of what a patriarch and matriarch should be.  Thank you for leading and saying "do as I do."

I know we all have our faults, but some reason right now I don't see them.  I just see a wonderful (large and crazy) family.  I love you guys.

This might be my only sappy post.  Enjoy it.

The end of a roller coaster season.

Can't say much (actually don't want to dwell on it) about this season.  The Chargers were incredible in a few games and down right horrible in some others.  They were touted as the heirs to the Super Bowl and ended regular season at 8-8 (???).  They started the season as the unluckiest team in the NFL and ended it as possibly the luckiest.  

Today was a little tuff.  After going to church we all sat down and enjoyed a little celebration for Hayden's 10th B'day then got into the game.  I really wanted San Diego to win this one... mostly as a gift for Hayden.  I'm used to the let downs.  I've been loving this team during some horrible times (ie. Ryan Leaf) and know it's a pipe dream to see these guys win a Super Bowl.  Don't get me wrong, they totally can do it, but the odds are very long.  Oh well... season is now done.  I'm not disappointed.  It was crazy to watch these guys ride a wave of talent and a little luck at the end.  

Well now that My Chargers are out, I'll need to focus more on fishing around here.  Only problems with that is the sun goes down early this far north and almost all lakes are seasonal only.  I've got a couple of rivers to try my hand at, mostly steel heads or salmon (hope my rod can handle it).  I will post some pics soon of some fun little fishing holes I find.  Still lots of places to find.  

Finally I'd like to say congrats to my son Hayden.  10 years old and a pistol to boot.  He's a great boy.  I love you little man.

What a freaking awesome game!

I loved watching todays game!  I am grateful for a job that allows me to come home for a moment and enjoy some of the game with my kids.  It was so cool to see the San Diego Super Chargers play a phenomenal game.  Big kudos to the little man- Darren Sproles (AKA: Tank).
