What Happens At Home

For all of you who think Miranda and I have a wild and crazy life, this is what happens at home. The dogs sleep, Miranda reads and I surf the internet/watch TV. I don’t want this to sound like I’m complaining, it’s nice and quiet and it all seems to just work.

Also, an interesting post on Metafilter with lots of interesting pictures: “Kirkbride Buildings. Once state-of-the-art mental healthcare facilities, Kirkbride buildings have long been relics of an obsolete therapeutic method known as Moral Treatment. These massive structures were conceived as ideal sanctuaries for the mentally ill in the latter half of the nineteenth century.”


I’ve come across an amazing website call suprglu. The best way to describe it is that it aggregates all of the pages which you create on the internet. If you have a blog on blogger or pictures on flickr or you constantly link to del.icio.us then it will draw from those websites and create a conglomerate of one giant page of all of your stuff. I have posted my suprglu page on my links if you want to know what I’m looking at and you feel like you need to stalk my every move on the internet.

Mavs Game – Return of the T-Storm

What a tremendous time at the Mavs game last night. I got the call around 5:30 and I think I was only 3rd or 4th on the call list (it doesn’t bother me, really, it doesn’t) and I was at the Jones’ household by 6:30.

I want to give a huge shout-out to Mr. Thompson who provided the seats, they were greatly appreciated by all of us.

The game wasn’t great, because the Mavs completely stomped a mudhole in the Pacers. The first half was closer that the second half but the Mavs had so much more depth it wasn’t really fair. Once again, it’s amazing how great Howard, Harris and Terry can be. This is going to be an amazing year. I also realized on the ride home to Terrell that Dampier had 14 rebounds (I was shocked to hear this).

By the way, the picture of Nick in complete defiance of his wife is priceless and will be worth quite a ransom, not that I would blackmail Nick. Let’s just hope that Nick doesn’t show this blog to his wife.

It’s a shame that T-Storm is half-way across the country.

Christmas at the Fivecoat’s

Christmas at the Fivecoat’s was fun, I received a wonderful surround sound DVD player and Miranda and I watched two episodes of Band of Brothers (a DVD set that I received last year). Miranda received a new purse, a food processor, more flanel pajamas (for the love of God, no more flanel pajamas) and some new books. It is also without a doubt that Christmas at the Fivecoat’s is really about Olive as she received a new t-shirt that says, “IT’S ALL ABOUT ME.”

Both of our parents and family are so good to us and we cannot thank them enough for all of the wonderful gifts.

Christmas at Home

Let’s not kid ourselves, Christmas at home was about three beings, all pictured above. Despite their love for chew toys and other things, I gave Miranda a Nano, which she loves and wanted since her birthday in August and Miranda gave me a new phone, which is sti nkin’ cool. Miranda also got a new necklace, a coffee mug with a picture of her favorite dog, and herb egglings. All in all, Miranda and I had a wonderful Christmas and we hope everyone else had a wonderful Christmas as well.

Christmas at the Jungman’s

Another wonderful Christmas at the Jungman’s under the belt. Although I’m not sure, I think that I was the only one taking pictures at either the Jungman’s or the Fivecoat’s, thus the pics are minimal. Nevertheless, I got a wonderful dog barn, which will come in handy for the puppy dogs when it rains and a bed-liner for my new truck. Miranda was very excited about new coasters and it seemed as if Jenson and Grace loved all of their new toys. Grace loves opening presents and she had no problem helping Uncle Cluck with his or anyone elses.

Mavericks win

I stayed up and watched the Mavericks game last night and I couldn’t help but think that they were going to lose that game. Mark Cuban had an interesting post on his blog a couple of days ago and mentioned the failure rate of teams who play on back to back nights and then goes into teams that play back to back on the road (even worse). Needless to say, the Mavs pulled this one out and it was a really good game. I think the other thing that I want to eventually get into at a later date is the relative youth of the Mavs, detailing the large number of players under the age of 27 or 28 and that their window is larger than most people think. Just as an example, think about the ages of Harris, Howard, Daniels, Diop, Terry, Dirk, Dampier, Terry (all under the age of 30 at this point of their careers). Although they can’t beat the Lakers (I think they just don’t have anyone who can match up with Kobe, but then again who does) they are a very good team and I’m not going to go so far as to say that the Mavs will beat San Antonio, but it will be close.

The O.G.

You can take the man out of the gangsta, but you can’t take the gangsta out of the man. I really couldn’t help myself. This is Brady’s new hat and I thought it would be best if I modeled it so he could know what a real O.G. is supposed to look like.
